The blogs team got the chance to chat with this years Most Dedicated Twitter Trender award winner: @klarofied, also known as Beth. Beth is a Klaroline shipper from Scotland who was a latecomer to fandom as she didn’t start watching The Vampire Diaries until it was in its 6th season. That said, like many of, she began shipping Klaroline the minute he saved her life in 3×11. She’s especially drawn towards the whole bad-guy-falls-for-the-good-girl, since it’s usually the other way around. And of course their chemistry (which I, for one, cannot dispute!). Beth is currently studying Religious, Moral and Philosophical studies and is hoping to go on to then study French as she would love to a career in travel. Honestly, Beth’s such a sweetheart and you’ll see when you read her interview below!
KM: Congratulations on winning Most Dedicated Twitter Trender in the Klaroline Awards 2016! How did it feel to be nominated, and to then go on and win the category?
Beth: Thank You! I know everyone says it, but I really didn’t expect to be nominated, let alone to win! I thought I was just one of those accounts that’s just…there. One you see on your timeline occasionally. My first thought when I got the DM telling me that I had been nominated was ‘Is this a thing they send everyone who takes part in the trends… Or is this an ACTUAL nomination?’ Haha. I was honestly ecstatic when I one. I sent a snapchat to my friend Angie (@JoinMeNik) telling her to go on Twitter!! When I found out haha.
KM: Is there anything you’d like to say to those who nominated and/or voted for you in this category?
Beth: I would like to say thank you to those who nominated and/or voted. I honestly didn’t expect it and to know that people actually nominated and voted is so amazing! I love you!
KM: You were up against some tough competition, is there anything you’d like to say to your fellow nominees?
Beth: To my fellow nominees, I would like to say congratulations on the nominations! You all deserved it and put up some tough competition! Thank you for the help in the trends, and keep doing what you’re doing!
KM: And finally, because you won most dedicated twitter trender, what advice would you offer for trending to Klaroline newbies?
Beth: The advice I would give is to remember why we do this, to get noticed and to show our love for these characters and actors. I know when we do these trends you’re probably busy or tired, but it’ll be worth it, I promise!
