“I feel like six seasons is a nice, long slow-burn, so I’m excited to see these characters together,” Accola tells us in the video above. “Usually, it’s so immediate, especially on our series … but in real life, it’s the person you can be yourself in front of in the most dorky way. Both of these characters have seen the worst in each other and they still like each other and I think that’s really cool and that’s really special.”
Candice knows whatsup. The Steroline fandom doesn’t want the next Delena and we definitely, under no circumstances want Steroline to be the next Klaroline.
We want a mature, healthy, romantic relationship between two people who put all of who they are into a relationship. Something this show hasn’t had in years.
I know the concept of a healthy relationship isn’t exactly popular these days. There seems to be a rather disturbing fascination with toxic couples. The more they screw each other up, the better it seems. Anyone who wants to see a ship that’s built upon a foundation of trust and love is instead constantly bombarded by ships that include frequent murder attempts, stalking, a twisted version of “love” that looks more like obsession, and couples who are clearly not good for each other.
The “bad boy” fantasy is getting out of control on television. They often get the most passionate supporters, but promote some of the worst ways to actually be in a relationship that you’ll ever see.
Steroline is a return to healthier relationships. They started out as friends, and let me tell you from personal experience, friendship is without a doubt the best foundation for a relationship.
