2015 was a bumper year, even though we had no canon Klaus and Caroline scenes, and it seemed our rival ships were blooming, but still Klaroliners prevailed. Because we all know in the end that as long as we are there shipping our hardest the ship cannot die. So this was the year of all the shoutouts by the actors and writers, numerous new fandom projects began, new fanfics, new fanvids, new gifsets and thanks to the magic of Netflix plenty more shippers have joined our ranks, and that’s something worth celebrating.
Some of our amazing members here at the mag have compiled a list of some of our favorite things about Klaroline and the fandom in 2015. Check it out:
Cassie – Graphics Team
Favourite Fandom Moments of 2015: When all the writers and actors started being nice to us and when Joseph said he wants klaroline endgame because the fandom all came together and finally had something to feel happy about.
Favourite Klaroline Magazine article/moment/event of 2015: I loved when the mag made Klaroline Buddy System because it gave all those kcers that want to make more friends a chance to talk to other kcers and connect.
What do you wish will happen with Klaroline next year? (aka things we want the Klaroline Coven to sacrifice for): I just want klaroline endgame! Or at least a crossover by next year that will eventually lead to klaroline endgame.
Arcena – Recaps Team
Favourite Fandom Moments of 2015: When I went to EyeCon and came back with the great news about Joseph Morgan. When he slowly threw in Klaroline, I knew it was going to ignite the fandom. Seeing now, how the PR team for CW worked so hard at him keeping his mouth shut. Knowing that he still loved everything Klaroline but had to follow orders from PR to keep his mouth shut. Really made me proud of our fandom. We have CEO/Networks, Media, Other Fandoms and more knowing about our ship and asking the same questions to Julie Plec and crew. WHY? We did it y’all, we made a vow to never let anyone forget about Klaroline and what the ship means to us. We have more than well made that point clear.
Favourite Klaroline Magazine article/moment/event of 2015: I loved all the events, Klaroline GivesBack, Klaroline Buddy System and of course my all time favs: Klaroline Christmas, Apperciation Weeks, Klaroline Smutmass and many more.
What do you wish will happen with Klaroline next year? (aka things we want the Klaroline Coven to sacrifice for): It’s going to be a hard year my fam. We will be under attack from all four corners. What I what to happen. When that phone call happens and the crossover itself. I want us to show the network. Give those episodes the best damn ratings ever. Then when our bone dissapears and they try to end with their bullshit. We show them how fast it can go away. The network seeing this will put us a better position come S4 and TVD S8.
Cristy – Fanfiction Team
Favourite Fandom Moments of 2015: Quite a few surprisingly. The Joseph mention about Klaroline was so exciting and definitely gave me hope. I also enjoyed the other mentions, so when Kat Graham said she liked Klaroline at Comic Con, and when the TO writers tweeted that Klaus hasn’t forgotten Caroline and they can’t ignore canon. The deleted line reveal in TO about Klaus dancing with the blonde in Mystic Falls was definitely a highlight and also when the TVD/TO writers retweeted Klaroline fan art it also got me a little excited.
Favourite Klaroline Magazine article/moment/event of 2015: Klaroline Gives Back was phenomenal. Not only was it a worthy cause but the Klaroline community were the first to do it. Shows what amazing people we have in the coven. I would love to see more of this next year! The Klaroline Winter Wonderland was a lot of fun to take part in as well.
What do you wish will happen with Klaroline next year? (aka things we want the Klaroline Coven to sacrifice for): Endgame! Do I really have to say anymore?
Anam – Videos Team
Favourite Fandom Moments of 2015: There’s so many moments that i could list, but my favourite has to be how Joseph’s declaration that Klaroline is endgame brought so much hope to the Klaroline fandom.
Favourite Klaroline Magazine article/moment/event of 2015: Honestly, Klaroline Gives Back was unbelievable. The whole fandom came together and showed so much support. The fandom didn’t do it to prove that we were the biggest. I think it’s amazing that the Klaroline Magazine organised with any ulterior motive.
What do you wish will happen with Klaroline next year? (aka things we want the Klaroline Coven to sacrifice for): 2016 IS THE YEAR OF KLAROLINE. I don’t know what is going to happen but I’m praying it’s good. I want the fandom to grow and I can’t wait to read the new fanfictions and watch the new fanvids.
Lauren – Recaps Team
Favourite Fandom Moments of 2015: It might be the great manipulated photo of Joseph and Daniel holding the Coke cans with Caroline and Katherine’s names on them. It got a lot of attention. There are still so many of us still around.
Favourite Klaroline Magazine article/moment/event of 2015: My favorite Magazine moment might be the recent opinion piece upset about Caroline’s storyline. Klaroline Gives Back was impressive and well done as well.
What do you wish will happen with Klaroline next year? (aka things we want the Klaroline Coven to sacrifice for): I wish for Caroline and Klaus to rekindle their spark that has kept us going for years. I want them to banter and flirt. I want them to fight and make up. I want them to be happy together.
We hope that 2016 will be a year of success, love and learning for all of our readers. And FFS can Klaroline come back already??
