I Heart Characters #15; An OTP Embodying Your Favorite Romance Trope

i heart characters

“I Heart Characters! is a weekly meme hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer to showcase our book blogger love for characters! Each week she’ll supply a topic and you’ll supply the character. Post on whatever day suits you, about characters from whatever media you love (books, movies, K-dramas, television, manga, anime, webtoons, whatever!) and link up on Thursday so YOU and others can blog hop and share the character love.”

This week’s I Heart Characters topic is “An OTP Embodying Your Favorite Romance Trope“. The prompt was for a couple in my favorite romance trope. My favorite trope is enemies to lovers and I couldn’t decide between my TV OTPs but I made a poll in twitter. My followers decided Klaroline for me.

Contains spoilers for The Originals and Legacies.

 

Meeting

Klaus had Caroline kidnapped with her werewolf boyfriend and was planning on sacrificing them to break his curse but he didn’t meet Caroline until he turned Tyler into a hybrid. Caroline of course had heard about the famous original hybrid who needed her best friend (doppelganger), a werewolf, a vampire to break a curse his mother gave him.

Saving her life

They didn’t really talk to each other until she was bitten by Tyler. Klaus’ blood was the only thing that could save her life so after some begging from Tyler he turned to her house. It was Caroline’s birthday, so Klaus was offended when she thought he was coming to kill her.

“There’s a whole world out there waiting for you. Great cities, and art, and music. Genuine beauty. And you could have all of it. You could have a thousand more birthdays, all you have to do is ask.

The next morning Caroline noticed that Klaus had left her a birthday gift; diamond bracelet.

Chemistry

These two always have such a great chemistry! Why do you think that even after being in different shows for five years everyone was rooting for their endgame? I don’t know how Joseph Morgan and Candice King did it but I’d definitely want to watch a movie just about them.

You could just feel the chemistry just by the way they looked at each other. If there was a category about a couple who has the best eye sex I’d probably name Klaroline.

“I’m never the one”

“But that doesn’t change the fact that Matt’s always gonna be in love with you, and I’m always gonna be the backup. I’m Matt’s Elena backup. I’m your Bonnie backup.”

Caroline Forbes was never anyone’s first choice until Klaus Mikaelson noticed her. She has two best friends but she felt like she was just a backup to them. Not that I blame her since Bonnie showed Elena that she’s a witch but thought Caroline should believe her after years of joking that she was a witch. Who started dating her abuser? Elena. I could even write a whole post about how Caroline deserved better friends than Elena and Bonnie but let’s not get into that.

Caroline has also had a few boyfriends. There was Damon who only showed interest in her to get to close to Elena. Damon didn’t only use her but also compel and rape her. Then there was Matt who was still in love with Elena and Tyler who chose to leave her again and again. Caroline also married someone who never got over Elena. Stefan literally said that he didn’t see a future with her so no wonder he sacrificed his life five seconds after they got married to save his brother and Elena.

Klaus on other hand chose her every time even after been betrayed by her so many times. Klaus saved Caroline when his sister and her were in danger. Klaus was going to let Stefan die but saved him after hearing Caroline’s in a phone.

Klaus never moved on from her no matter how much he tried. He slept with someone else which in the end ruined everything since that resulted the birth of Hope who killed both of her parents. Klaus also tried dating a lot in New Orleans. He used witches, had relations with his crazy ex- girlfriend and even tried dating someone who reminded him of Caroline; blonde, beautiful, intelligent and fierce girl who had a heart bigger than the sun.

Promises

“Tyler’s your first love. I intend to be your last. However long it takes.”

I’ll never get over that epic line or that Klaus would’ve kept his promise and traveled the world with her if he wouldn’t have had that one night stand and having to give his life for Hope because that’s SO realistic that Klaus who loved being an immortal would give his life to anyone, even his siblings.

Caroline also made a promise to never forget about him. She always saw the good in him and even kept his voicemail in her phone for 15 years and never forgot about him.

Alternative Universe

It’s canon that Klaus and Caroline are married and enemies of the state in an universe where Hope was never born. I haven’t seen the episode since I refuse to watch Legacies (that show doesn’t deserve season two) but I’ve seen the news paper picture in twitter and I also saw few scenes in Youtube.

Can I switch Legacies into a spin off about Klaus and Caroline ruling the world together? It’s like fanfiction coming to life.

Klaroline is actually a ship that ruled three shows. Can you believe that or name another ship that can do that? There was only like two second mention and it became the second most watched Legacies episode.


What do you think of Klaroline? What couple in your favorite romance trope would you have chosen?

  1. AW! Such a cute post. I love Klaroline and this post gives me all the feels.
    I think that Caroline deserves so much better – an entire TV show should be made revolving around her.
    Klaus is also so good to her. The thing he says makes me swoon. As you quoted, ‘Tyler is your first love. I intend to be your last.’ I love the things he gives her and also, I hate how people judge Caroline for liking Klaus! UGh, you are all vampires who have killed and hurt – get over it.

    1. I hate that too, especially when they still used Klaus’ thing for Caroline against him and they don’t give Elena hell for liking Damon after everything Damon has done to Caroline, Alaric, Jeremy, Bonnie, Lexi etc. Tyler chose revenge over Caroline so he had no right to give Caroline hell over sleeping with Klaus.

      1. Oh, yes. That is just so hypocritical.
        I mean, I love Damon and all but he is just as bad as Klaus but they all seem to be ignoring that!
        and yep, preach girl! Judge yourself before judging other all of you.
        Which one of them hasn’t killed someone else in their lifetime? So screw you but Caroline’s not killed many people and not at all willingly so she’s better by default no matter who she chooses to be with.

  3. Poor Caroline!! GAHHHHH she’s been through the ringer!! ❤️ I was so happy to see you back with I Heart Characters Jamsu and I love the banner you created! I love when you go all mega fan about The Originals. You totally make me root for this couple.

  4. She really has but she was still the last vampire standing in Mystic Falls! I’m so proud of my girl even though she has terrible taste if men *cough* salvatore brothers *cough*

    Thank you! There really hasn’t been prompts that gave me an idea of which character to use in other winter prompts. I hope you post your next prompts soon so I can start scheduling them again 🙈

    You really should root Klaroline. They’re one of the best ships ever. They might have not gotten their happy ending in the “real world” but the alternative universe healed my hurt a bit.
