klaroline, for me, started out as a crackship that i largely blame kristina for. she put the idea in my head, linked me to a fic, and i was a goner after that. we both starting putting together manips and graphics which eventually led to a blog and then fics and it’s all history from there~
from the onset, i was intrigued by the pairing simply because caroline and klaus were two of my favorite characters. but also the more i looked at them, you see these similarities. the stubbornness especially, the snark, the fire and i LOVED that and could only imagine how that would play out if they ever interacted. i wanted them to challenge each other, to feel that hatred and passion in a relationship. i also really loved the idea of caroline giving into her bloodlust and becoming a killer, because it didn’t take her that long to suppress the urge but it was something she initially gave in to so easily because no one was there to guide her and i loved the idea of klaus being the person to manipulate her into becoming that monster again.
i like angst and tragedy, what can i say? she would hate him and he’s really incapable of loving, and i adore that too. the more we saw of them, the more we saw they were alike and i think that’s something else caroline would hate because she would slowly become that monster, believe she was that monster, see herself in klaus, and hate him more for it just as much as she was drawn to him for it in the passion and lust of it all.
yanno, in the end, i will always have my headcanon for klaroline and in it they are really twisted, dark, obsessive, violent, and everything the show really hasn’t made them. and i love getting to see them interact on the show but regardless my headcanon will live on and it’s what fuels my love for them most.
