All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Without you God knows what I’d do
- Life After You, Daughtry
For dear sweet Yana, one of the four people who guessed the mystery word for That I Give You Not My Hand but My Heart right. :)
I love the three together too! :) Klaroline is my favourite OTP and Kol is actually my favourite Original. (Haha yep, Klaus all by himself has nothing on Kol if you ask me. ) And about the drabbles, both ones I have in mind right now have to do with an awfully sensitive issue so I am thinking very carefully about how I will ultimately present the stories.
In the first one, Caroline is with Kol but she doesn’t remember anything about her past because Kol wiped her memory clean. On the other hand, Kol is genuinely fond of Caroline but is with her primarily because he thinks that the best revenge on his brother is to have the one thing Klaus wants the most. In the second one, which is AU/AH, Caroline is happily with Kol but one night after too much drinking she sleeps with Klaus, who realizes only when it’s too late to stop that Caroline is sleeping with him only because she has mistaken him for Kol in her drunkenness.
There’s a whole world of is it rape or is it not rape issues here so yeah, I have a lot of thinking to do.
Hmm… I guess I do like Season 3 Klaroline more than Season 4 Klaroline. Don’t get me wrong, as long as it’s a Klaroline scene then it’s good for me, and there were definitely some great Season 4 Klaroline scenes. But I found it hard to appreciate any Klaroline scene post 4x16, all the more post 4x20. You know, like it doesn’t matter if you eat your favourite gelato after you puke… it’s still gonna taste like puke.
Teehee I might need a little help with this one… er, what’s Adroline? :)
I have a looooot of favourite KC fics, but here are a few of the ‘special’ fics and authors for me. :)
1. I Gave You My Love to Borrow by ten.years.only.with.you – I’m a very talktative, very expressive person, but I don’t have the words to describe what this fic makes me feel every time I read it. I will forever wish that I could write something even half as good as this.
2. Let the Games Begin by angellus08 – This is one of the earliest Klaroline fics I read, back when I didn’t write fanfiction yet, and it introduced me to the OT3 that would go on to become one of my favourites (well I hate Elijah right now but I still love Klarolijah fanfiction. :D).
3. Cat Got Your Tongue by Dramatic Melody – One of my favourite lighthearted fics. It’s just refreshing and fun and entertaining, the kind of story that I think we can all have a bit of right now. Oh and k-laus if you ever get to read this I am still waiting for the sequel.
4. All’s Fair by fadingtales – This one is Greek Mythology themed, with Klaroline playing Athena and Ares, pushed to opposite sides of the war by the Trojan tragedy. I can’t help but be in awe with how this story is written because have two GreekMyth!Klaroline fics myself and this one is waaay better than either of my stories.
5. The Best Laid Plans by Fate Foretold – It’s actually posted as a KolxCaroline story but the author told me that it’s KolxCarolinexKlaus and you guys all know how much I love that OT3. The fic is fun and sassy and really exciting, too bad it’s been a year since it was updated. :(
I also would like to rec authors these authors:
clangwee, prettypinklips, maevelin – These girls, they know what they’re doing, and every time they post something I wish I was the one who wrote it.
mytraitorousheart, queenofklaroline, marsterroo, peaceful village – I adore these writers because reading their stories lets you into their journey as writers, from when they were starting out to now that they’re well-loved. :) It’s really inspiring.
loveoblivious, twistedtype, hellocutepanda, magically-muddled, lenina20 - Amazing writers with very well-written and well-thought of stories.
sadsunflowers, bright645 – I’m new to reading their works but I’ already very fond of these two. :)
Thank you so much for the kind words. :) I wish I could say the same thing about TO – and I really wanted to like it for CMD, Marcel and Klaus’ sake - but I can’t do that as of now. Who knows, maybe one day when the storylines are drastically different I will finally be able to appreciate the show as much as I want to. :)
I was watching 3x15 again and I laughed out loud when I got to the scene where Rebekah said that she finds it annoying how everybody always wants to bend over backward to save Elena. :))
In case Ms. Original hasn’t noticed, she’s bending over backwards to save or be of service to Hayley in basically every episode of TO.
Point blank, yes.
I obviously hate/despise/detest/loathe it but I’m calling it as I see it right now. I think Klayley will happen and I think Klayley will even be endgame for the mere reason that, as I’ve been repeating over and over again, The Originals is not really a show about the Originals… it’s a show made to make Hayley and Phoebe Tonkin shine.
She is the lead female character, and anyone who insists that Rebekah is the lead female is either blind or in denial.
Because Hayley is the lead female, the show will always be built around her and everyone will always bend over backwards to save her. She can never truly fail and if she experiences something negative it’s always going to be temporary, it will be followed by a positive event that will make her life a hundred times better.
Julie Plec may have said that Klaus and Hayley will not ride off to the sunset just because they’re having a baby, I do think she’s going to take all of that back. The little Klayley scenes that she’s injecting into the episodes are her way of easing the audience into the ship. Once she feels that there’s a good audience reception towards it she will definitely go there, because by that time fandom support will magically be important, the way fandom support towards Klaroline is totally not important right now.
Glad I could make you laugh today, dear! Hayley and Math are two of the things I detest the most myself, so let’s just make the most fun we can out of them. :)
Haha I know I can be a bit dramatic and exaggerated with my TO comments sometimes, but that just says how sorely frustrated I am with that show. :))
Hi dear. :) First off I hardly consider myself to be ‘big shot’ or popular, but thanks for thinking highly enough of me to say that. And no, you’re feeling that way because you’re new, I think every writer feels like that one way or another.
Reviews are and will always be important to me because it’s through reviews that I know what my readers think about my stories. When I write a fic of course I always hope that my readers will like it, but if it turns out that they don’t, then I really can’t do anything about that and I just feel grateful to those readers who did like it. Mind you, a lot of my favourite works didn’t get a lot of reviews - My Love is a Sonnet of Gold and Blue and Guarded are two of my least reviewed stories.
And as I’ve been saying, I try not to put too much importance on the number of reviews I get. Besides the fact that there’s really nothing I can do if people don’t want to review what I wrote, I think that being sad about not getting a lot of reviews is disrespectful to the people who did take the time to read my fics and leave me reviews. It’s like telling them, “Thanks, but you’re not enough to make me happy, I need more reviews.”
Yes, reviews are important, but my advice is not to make them the most important thing about writing a fic. Just do what you love and appreciate the love you’ll get for doing it. :)
Hello anon, thanks for dropping by and for the kind words. :) I will try to work on the last part of That I Give You Not My Hand But My Heart as soon as I have some more free time, but right now the priority really is the update for Only Red Flames and finishing my Suits!Klaroline oneshot You Take the Gun (Or You Pull Out a Bigger One) so it’s mostly gonna come after those.
And ugh please tell the plot bunny to stay away from me because last night it was hounding me to write these really angsty KlausxCarolinexKol drabbles… and yes you read that order of names right. It’s not Kol-loves-Caroline-but-Caroline-is-in-love-with-Klaus, it’s Klaus-loves-Caroline-but-Caroline-is-in-love-with-Kol. :)
I looked into it through Wiki and you’re right, TO and TSC have comparable first half of season numbers, with TO doing slightly better. :)
I’m not sure about TO’s costs since I haven’t read anything about it and I wouldn’t bother to actually try to look for something, but I think they’re not spending a lot since their set is just recycled from TVD’s old sets and JP mentioned that they even had to forgo computer generated effects for the dessication in favor of the cheaper make-up alternative.
Anyway, whatever the real deal is, I for one will not feel sorry for anyone except for CMD (Nope, not even for JoMo, he’s talented, he’ll get other projects) if the show gets canceled.
Am I a bad person if I say I’d rather see the end of Klaus than have his character destroyed for the sake of making a ‘darker, more mature show’.
