come back klaus

Klaus: “We will get her back, Elijah. Whatever happens, we will get (Y/N) back.”
Elijah: “I promised her I would keep her alive, Niklaus.”
Klaus: “You did all you could. Trust me, brother, (Y/N) will come back.”

then and now…

How Elena and Stefan could possibly be endgame in the finale, aka my “sired soul” theory...

Elena in 4x01 spent her last dying breaths as a human to tell Stefan that she loves him and how he is the best choice she ever made. 

So how does one go from saying all of that and simply fall out of love so quick? (Without having to say it was due to bad writing or fan servicing, because if I was a DE fan I would be pretty pissed off at the way they brought them together.) 
Be warned this is kinda long! 


Well what if when Elena was transitioning into a vampire (during the first few episodes of season 4), her human soul was slowly being replaced by a new vampire one created by the sire bond and this new soul is basically a reflection of the desires of the soul to whom she was sired to aka Damon. She still appeared to be in love with Stefan the first few episodes but it also seemed like her old self was slowly fading away along with her feelings, (basically all her good qualities which made her who she was). What if the sired soul made her more like Damon and obviously made her do Damon-like things? Because let’s face it Elena from season 4 on wards was a completely new character/person. 

The reason why this could have happened was because firstly Elena never wanted to be a vampire and also maybe and probably more likely because when she died at the end of season 2 John gave Elena his soul, a soul that replaced Elena’s so that when she woke up it would be as a human and not a vampire (as that was what John had wanted). So when she died at the end of season 3, her soul which John gave her didn’t want to accept the transition into a vampire hence a new vampire sired soul was born, giving her basically new and all the annoying qualities that Damon had.  

This could explain how her feelings for Stefan never got heightened, because deep down in Damon’s soul he didn’t want Elena to be in love with Stefan. He wanted Elena to love him instead. Elena said she still loved Stefan, but she was not actually in love with him. Wouldn’t that be basically just how Damon feels about his own brother, right? 

Otherwise it just wouldn’t make sense from a story pov, not a shipper’s but a story pov how Elena just kinda forgot this strong built relationship she had with Stefan.

Now here is my opinion on the only way I see Stelena possibly as endgame based on all of this because I wouldn’t want the vampire Elena to get back with Stefan, especially after all the shit she put him through (that would be so selfish and Stefan deserves much better).

When Elena took the cure, she didn’t appear to have any significant changes to her character she was just a human again right (although she did kinda flirt with Stefan at the wedding)? However Elena was only a human for a few days/weeks (few episodes, just like in the beginning of season 4) before Kai cast the Sleeping Beauty type spell on her. 

So what if after all these years while Elena was in that coffin (cause we have no idea what happened in her mind during all this time), her human soul slowly came back, the same soul which was very much in love with Stefan even after testing the waters with Damon (who I personally saw as a metaphor for temptation/being greedy)? 

 And when she wakes up the last thing she remembers clearly is telling Stefan that she chose him (whilst she was transitioning) but her memories of them as a couple as they were slowly breaking up are fuzzy/blurred because that wasn’t actually her. 

Then Stefan realises that Elena 2.0 was never the girl he fell in love with but just a walking reminder of her and that his Elena from seasons 1-3 would never hurt him/break his heart like new vampire Elena did. 

After this Stelena then have one of their epic reunion hugs and just stare at each other like they can’t believe they are in each others arms again and they finally kiss and slowly slip back into their old feelings/lives. Oh and Stefan takes the cure and is human again too.

And basically Damon all along had never been with Elena but has been in a weirdly twisted relationship with a version of himself essentially in the vessel/meat suit (had to use the spn references) of old Elena. It’s kinda disturbing but that’s kinda the only explanation I have for ‘who the hell was Damon dating then if it weren’t Elena?’. Plus his reaction could be funny!?

As for SC to not be a thing anymore, I hope Klaus comes back for Caroline and reminds her of this moment and boom no more sc wedding or a divorce.

Klaus hadn’t noticed it at first, he’d been to caught up in everything that was happening in New Orleans, now there would be two little girls that he’d have to provide for and protect but he loved you both. It just seemed like he loved her more. You had decided that it was best for you to stay away. At first, it was small things like coming out of your room later or just spending more time away from people, Elijah noticed it first and came to see you.

“(Y/N)?” Elijah asked knocking on your door. You were sitting at your desk you legs swinging because your feet didn’t touch the floor.
“Hi, Uncle Elijah.” You waved smiling, he smiled back and walked into the room standing behind you as he watched you draw.
“How are you today?” He asked.
“I’m okay!” You answered forcing a smile.
“Why don’t you come down?” He asked.
“I will later!” You answered. “I want to finish my drawing first.”
“Alright dear well let me know if you need anything.” Elijah smiled.
“I will!” You answered.

A few days later Klaus and Hayley brought Hope home, you saw the way that they all looked at her, you heard the things that they said about her and you felt like you weren’t even there anymore. You stayed away most of the time locked away in your room, that is until you left altogether, you found yourself in the bayou, you found somewhere to stay in the bayou. You were only 6 but you knew how to survive out there, Klaus found you after some people had forced you to active the werewolf gene. Klaus took you in after finding you running around in wolf form. It only took a few hours for the wolves to realise that you had wandered into their territory upon hearing that it was a young girl Jackson decided to talk you himself. When he found you, you’d managed to make a small shelter and had your legs pulled up to your chest.  “Hey there.” Jackson smiled gently as he crouched, you looked up at him. “Are you lost?”
“No.” You answered and he frowned.
“What are you doing here?” He asked.
“I’m just looking for somewhere to stay.” You mumbled.
“Don’t you live it The Originals?” He asked.
“I used to but now Klaus has a better daughter he doesn’t need me.” You mumbled.
“Do you want to come back with us?” Jackson asked.
“Who are you?” You asked and he smiled.
“My names Jackson I’m the Alpha of the pack out here.” He answered and you nodded.
“I’m (Y/N).” You answered.
“You made this?” he asked and you nodded. “Cool, you want to come back?”

“Where is she!?” Klaus asked pacing the courtyard of the Abattoir, the place was quiet since he’d sent all of the vampires out the find you.
“Klaus when was the last time that you spoke to her?” Elijah asked.
“What does that have to do with anything?” He asked.
“Maybe she left rather than being taken,” Elijah suggested.
“What are you suggesting?” Klaus asked.
“When was the last time that you spoke to her?” Elijah repeated, Klaus was about to answer when he got a call from Hayley saying that the wolves found you and you could come get you.

“So you like drawing and building?” Jackson asked you were sitting with him, he had you on his lap and you were playing with his fingers.
“Yeah Klaus used to help me make things, I should show my room back home, there’s lots of stuff there.” You explained, neither of you noticed Hayley watching you, Klaus came up next to her and spotted you.
“Have you spoken to her?” He asked.
“She told Jackson that you don’t need her anymore,” Hayley answered. Hayley didn’t miss the hurt look that crossed his face before he covered it and looked over at you talking to Jackson, Jackson looked over at Klaus and then tapped your shoulder pointing over, Klaus saw the shocked looked that took over your face before Jackson walked you over. Klaus knelt down and picked you up nodding to Jackson in thanks before walking away with you.
“What are you doing out here little one?” Klaus asked his voice softer than you expected. You shrugged opting for playing with his necklaces. “I heard that you don’t think I need you.”
“Hmm.” You hummed continuing to play with his necklace.
“Your wrong… You know.” He said, you finally looked at him, he glanced down and smiled. “You know why?” You shook your head. “I love you just as much as I love Hope, you make me happy. Now, why would I want to get rid of you?” Klaus asked squeezing you. When you got back to the quarter Klaus took you to get something to eat before taking you home, it was late when you got back and you had fallen asleep but instead of taking you to your room, Klaus took you to his took off  your shoes and his before laying down with you and falling asleep cradling you to his side.

Requests and general question!

Ship Analysis: Klaroline

“But I’ll let you in on a little secret: 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.”


Klaus and Caroline met at the most inappropriate of times. She was dying, bitten by her werewolf boyfriend, on her b i r t h d a y… and Klaus just happened to be one of the biggest antagonists that time. He was so gentle with her (mainly because she was dying). But why did Klaus choose to personally come to her aid? We all know that Klaus is the “high and mighty hybrid”, yet he apologizes and says that she was simply just collateral damage. Klaus saw this spark in Caroline Forbes, this spark that is just so hard to miss when you study her carefully. It seemed as if she had lived her life more in her vampirism, and she found power in it. Klaus spared her life because he saw great things in her. Young, beautiful and dynamic.

Now we all know that Caroline doesn’t really like Klaus , considering he was the ‘big bad wolf’ of the season. She found it absolutely despicable how heartless Klaus was without him even looking like he realizes it. But he’s just so keen, so eager to have these heart to heart conversations with Caroline (I.E the horse scene & the Ms. Mystic pageant party), and how he just completely turns in to mush around her. I don’t think any girl would have gotten Klaus to talk about the one time he wondered what it was like to be human. But Caroline obviously wasn’t just any girl, in the sense that every time she would reject Klaus, he would just smile and you could just see how much more infatuated with her he gets. Klaus learns of her fierce loyalty to her friends, her fiery personality, and her fun-loving side. I also think that one thing Klaus finds absolutely interesting about Caroline is that she does not shy away from the lavishes that he has to offer. She even turned to ask him for help when Elena stole her prom dress, asking him to dig up something of “royal caliber”. Klaus loves a woman who shares the same amount of interest in riches, and Caroline, as we all know, is exactly that. Although Klaus was basically the reason why Caroline’s boyfriend was never around…you can tell that she does have feelings for him, and she did respond to all the chasing that Klaus has done.


And so we see Klaus breaking out hell left and right for quite awhile…as he usually does. The next iconic Klaroline moment happens when Kol causes havoc at their graduation and boom! There’s Klaus in all his glory, killing the witches with toga hats (who knew those could even slice off heads lmao). And then he saves the day, all is good. And in this one scene it is revealed that Caroline actually sent him something to inform him about her upcoming graduation, joking about receiving cash, or a mini fridge. Klaus could very well have given her a mini fridge, he knew that it would actually bring a smile to her face. But he knew her enough to know that he could give her something worth more than material items, he knew what she wanted deep down.

And so he let Tyler go, stating that Tyler was her first love, but he would be her last. However long it takes.

There is nothing threatening with the way he says it. He means his words, his promise of patience…and we all know that Klaus Mikaelson is a lot of things, but he sure as hell isn’t patient. He sees this great, powerful young woman, who is definitely worth the wait. If Klaus were to rule as king, he sees Caroline fit to be his queen. And so they part, although I don’t think Caroline is ever shaken off of his mind as we see in the pilot episode of The Originals. Klaus is standing in the streets of New Orleans, basking in the festivities and he takes his phone out. Notice how he types in a number with familiarity. He is smiling all the way through. New Orleans was his most favorite place in the world, but all he could think about was Caroline and how she would have loved to see what he was seeing at that moment. He doesn’t even care that Caroline didn’t pick up her phone. He just wanted to let her know that he was thinking about her.

We don’t really see another Klaroline moment after that until Katherine comes back and is human. Klaus, ofcourse, goes back to Mystic Falls to “gloat over a corpse to be”, as Caroline had said. However, he’s there to save the day again. And you could just see how much he misses her, how much he just wants to hear the truth hidden behind these snarky remarks of hers . And so he gives himself the ultimatum, and chooses to never see her again in exchange for her honesty, (and honestly after how heated that was I don’t think Klaus regretted walking away from that at all XD). This did not only benefit Klaus, but the confession made Caroline’s feelings for him more emphasized. She was aware that they existed, as much as she hated Klaus for all the shit that he’s done, but I don’t think she ever really realized the intensity of said feelings that she was even afraid to admit that she had them.

The next significant interaction between the two happens when Stefan was running away from Rayna Cruz, ends up at New Orleans and in the company of his old friend, Klaus. Again, Caroline is also partly the reason as to why Klaus opens up his doors of sympathy for Stefan. He did not get pissed or whatsoever upon knowing of their relationship. Klaus knew what type of person Stefan was, and therefore knew that he was capable of making Caroline happy. It was enough of an assurance that Caroline would indeed be happy. And so he protects Stefan in all ways that he could manage. And then he picks up Stefan’s phone, encounters a very panicked Caroline, with two screaming babies at the background. And now this fierce, youthful, powerful woman that he used to know was now a mother. He remembers the last things she had told him, about building a future for herself, finishing college and the like. And so Caroline is on the verge of embarrassment, Klaus giving her tips on how to make the baby stop crying (as he’s had experience with Hope), comforting her in the best way that he can. He also tells her about how sorry he was to hear about Liz’s death, and how she would have loved to see Caroline and the babies. That was what Caroline needed that moment, emotional support, and Klaus knew that she did.


Then the most recent Klaroline moment happened, that got most of us screaming our heads off for sure. You would think that after all the things that happened to Klaus back in New Orleans, the new love interest he had had, would’ve made him forget about Caroline. But I’m pretty sure that Klaus was somehow up to date with the happenings of the Mystic Falls gang’s lives. And then all this extra shit happened, the Sirens, the devil, Katherine. Klaus might have heard about the Steroline wedding and was silently happy for her, then the next thing we knew Stefan’s human and then he’s dead. And now Klaus is certain, for sure, that Caroline’s happiness must be buried under all this grief. But hey what do you know, she’s putting up a school for her supernatural children, fulfilling Stefan’s last wish. And she is thriving. She may have sank down very low because of her grief, but Caroline was able to pick herself up at an instant, knowing that she had to be strong for her daughters, and for the people she loved.

Klaus might of been like ‘holy shit what’. This woman, Caroline, lost her husband of a couple hours, nearly lost her best friend again, was stronger than ever. This amazing, dynamic woman never let grief stand in her way, and was now dedicating her life to helping other supernatural beings learn how to be themselves. How could he not be in awe of her willpower and determination? He is reminded, time and time again, of Caroline Salvatore’s resilience. Ofcourse he just had to write her a THREE MILLION DOLLAR CHECK to help out on such a noble cause (I swear he emptied out someone’s bank account…certainly not his, for sure. Probably Elijah’s or Becca’s). And his heart is reminded of what it wants again. He wanted Caroline, however long it was going to take him.


And that, my friend, is why I believe Klaroline is fucking endgame.

Klaus x Reader

Requested By Anon


Klaus smiled at his plan, he knew if you found out you’d be furious, you were still at the stage of considering crawling back to the unworthy moron tied to the chair in front of the Hybrid.

“What the hell, you’re that guy that follows (Y/N) around.” The man grunted and Klaus rolled his eyes.

“No I am the man who takes care of (Y/N), my best friend, honestly catering to a human’s desires becomes tiresome but my siblings and I were not impressed when our attempts to keep her happy was destroyed by your idiocy.” Klaus growled at the man who rolled his eyes.

“So what, not like she isn’t coming back.” He chuckled and Klaus had to take a deep breath before speaking so he didn’t break the man’s neck.

“You’re going to leave her for good.” Klaus sighed and he clenched his fists at the laughter that bounced around the sparse room.

“Why would I do that?” He asked.

Prompt: “Come back to bed.”

Character: Klaus Mikaelson x reader



You blinked open your eyes with a groan, wondering why the hell you had woken up so early on your free day.

It wasn’t hard to detect the reason for your sudden awakening and you squeezed your eyes shut when the first rays of sunlight continued to shine on your face.

After trying to fall back asleep for half an hour you gave up. Sleep wouldn’t come back, at least not as long as you didn’t close the curtains.

You groaned again before you tried to stay up, the heavy arm around your waist not making the task any easier.

Carefully you pried off Klaus’s arm, grumbling under your breath,

“Stupid vampire strength.”

When you finally managed to get out of bed you took your time to admire your boyfriend. For being known as one of the deadliest supernatural beings wandering earth he looked oddly angelic.

His relaxed face, slightly parted lips and his ruffled locks would have made him look boyish if his bare, muscular torso wouldn’t have been exposed.

Quietly you made your way towards the window, gazing into the garden. Klaus’ voice made you jump in surprise.

“Come back to bed, love.”

With a playful glare you turned around, “Don’t scare me like that.”

Klaus chuckled, his hoarse morning voice sending shivers down your spine.

“I wouldn’t have to scare you if you just stayed in bed.”

“If somebody hadn’t forgotten to close the curtains I would have stayed” you grumbled, adding with a smirk, “but I have to admit that you look adorable when you sleep, so it was worth it.”

Klaus raised an eyebrow, scowling at you, but you could see the amused glint in his eyes.

“I’m not adorable. Handsome, strong, terrifying, a killer, a monster – yes, but not adorable.”

You rolled your eyes and swiftly pulled the curtains shut before padding back towards the bed.

“I’ll call you adorable as much as I want, Klaus.”

Instead of answering Klaus lifted the duvets, letting you slip in next to him. His arm naturally wrapped around your waist, pulling you close until you could rest your head on his chest.

Klaus started to comb his fingers through your hair. You hummed and cuddled closer to him, your eyes starting to drop close.

Klaus’ warm lips pressed against your forehead while he mumbled against your skin “Sleep, love.”

You burst into the room and rammed into Klaus so hard he flew backwards and jumped up, glaring at you as he crossed the room looking like he might hit you, only stopping when you began punching your fists against his chest.

 


“You. gave. Her. to. Them. I. hate. You.” Each word was punctuated with a soft thud against his chest as your bottom lip wobbled and tears trickled down your cheeks.


“I know love, it’ll be alright.” Klaus said when you finally stopped hitting him and simply slumped against his chest as if your body could no longer hold itself up.

Klaus Mikaelson & Elijah Mikaelson - Changing Perceptions

Prompt: Hey! This will probably be a lengthy request (sorry) but do you think you could please write a klaus x reader request please? Where you are his human girlfriend and Elijah doesn’t approve/like you and you know that so in turn you are sassy to him and klaus finds it hilarious. Then one day klaus and Elijah have to deal with a problem (aka lucien) and Elijah comes back dragging an injured klaus who was stabbed with the stake. So you being a nurse take over and take it out and jokingly say “Niklaus, you owe me a new couch” and like kiss his forehead and Elijah kinda watches and realises your relationship is strong because klaus is really affectionate to you. Bonus: if you manage to somehow include the reader being a bitch and punching lucien because she is over his crap. Don’t have to include it if you can’t. That’s all good! :) Thank you! 

You had been waiting for a while for them to return. Every part of you knew it was a terrible idea, the worst idea that both Klaus and Elijah had come up with in a while. They’d gone to fight Lucien. You’d hoped they’d come back quickly, realising that you had been right and they were stupid. But of course, that wouldn’t happen because the Mikaelsons were too stupid to realise that they were stupid. Klaus was your boyfriend so you expected the stupidity from him because he was well, him. Elijah was supposed to be the smart one. 

You’d thought that he left with Klaus just because you’d said it was a bad idea. Elijah didn’t like you very much, if at all. It could be due to the fact that you were constantly at him, sassing him for everything he said, being sarcastic and snapping at him. Klaus found it hilarious… Elijah, not so much. In your defence though, he didn’t like you even before that. He didn’t approve of you and his brother together. You’d thought that it was because you were human and Klaus was so far from but you didn’t really know. 

 You’d started to pace when you heard a groan from the doorway. You frowned, rushing towards the sound and stopping when you saw the brothers. Elijah was dragging Klaus next to him, your boyfriend bleeding excessively, leaving a trail behind him that you’d no doubt have to clean up later. You rushed back over to the couch, clearing it of cushions as Elijah placed Klaus down. Your boyfriend lay down dramatically, his hand shooting to the stake protruding from his chest.

 "Lucien staked him.“ Elijah explained gruffly. You rolled you eyes, sitting on Klaus so your knees were either side of him. 

"Really? I wouldn’t have noticed.” You replied dryly. Klaus managed a chuckle, blood coughing up as he did. You sighed, smoothing his hair down and not breaking eye contact as you rested your knee on his chest and used your other hand to pull out the stake. He gasped as the wood left his chest, the wound closing up before you’d even fished out the whole stake. 

You smiled at Klaus, throwing the stake on the floor next to you. As you got up, you pressed a soft kiss to his forehead. He grabbed your hand before you could go, smiling up at you. 

“Thank you, love.” You grinned back. 

“It’s not a problem.” You replied before frowning. “Though you do owe me a new couch, Niklaus.” Elijah watched the interaction with narrowed eyes. Maybe you weren’t as bad as he thought you were. He barely registered you talking to him as he watched his brother’s face, full of adoration as he looked at you. 

“Where’s Lucien now?” You inquired, not looking at Elijah considering your rocky relationship. 

“Freya is disposing of him. He’s weakened, she just needs to find a spell to kill him” He responds without the usual bite. You kissed Klaus on the forehead before starting for the door, rolling up your sleeves. 

“Where are you going?” Klaus asked, sitting up. 

“Lucien needs a lesson the human way. I’m sure he won’t mind a black eye in his grave.” You replied before leaving. If you hadn’t have known better, you would’ve said that you saw a small smile on Elijah’s face before you left.

anonymous asked:

You ever plan on coming back to Klaus, or has that new character become your life now?

The muse does what the muse does. Rn my muse for klaus is dormant. I’m sorry??? I’m not sure what to do with this question to be honest… like I’m…. really sorry…. that my muse for klaus isn’t around? I’m not going to force myself to write him if the muse is not there atm. That would make this a chore and not a hobby! Thank you for your patience and once more. I’m sorry?

klaroline au week [day 6/7]
    ↳  6. myths and legends.

What happens when Klaus comes back to town, claiming that Caroline is his mate, his Persephone of the underworld and that she belonged with him? Caroline, personally thinks he’s crazy. That is until he takes her there. | come back to me…


Klaus was uncharacteristically soft, as a human, Caroline learns as he takes her back through his memories, his fingertips pressing into her temples. Almost breakable to a point, and Mikael was convinced upon finding that weakness. Even going as far to include her as a weakness of his.

He was always kind towards her, she learns. And very passionate to his wants, and needs.

The first time they’d met, was when she’d moved to his village, after her father had passed, and her mother had said they needed to move, in the hopes of finding her a well off husband, as they needed that. Now more than ever.

Caroline didn’t want to get married, she never did, but she moves, for her mother, since she knows that they can’t live in poverty forever.

She meets Rebekah first, as she brings ail for her mother.

The girl is very bright and enthusiastic.

“You must be the new ones,” it’s almost an accusation, but there’s a smile on the girl’s lips, so innocent, that Caroline lets it slip.

“I suppose,” Caroline murmurs right back, her voice soft. 

“The name is Rebekah,” the young girl informs her, her hand reaching out so Caroline can shake it, and not wanting to offend her new friend, Caroline takes it. “Oh, it is such a pleasure to meet someone new. I’m barely allowed to leave these village walls. It has been so long since I’ve talked with a person who’s seen the world outside of here.”

Caroline barely refrains from retelling the hells of the real world, instead she smiles back.

“Caroline,” she offers in return.

“Caroline,” the girl grins, and her hands all of a sudden latch onto hers “Come now, you must meet my family. They’ve been itching to meet the new family.”

She barely offers any resistance, as she lets herself be dragged along. Surely, her mother wouldn’t mind if she was a little late. A few seconds barely bass, before they’re at her family’s hut, and she’s being introduced to Rebekah’s mother.

Esther, she recalls.

“Mother,” and the woman turns around, an almost terrifying look on her face. “This is my new friend, Caroline. She and her mother are the new family who have just moved here. I had thought you’d want to meet them.”

Esther immediately perks up.

“Of course. Of course, my child. Please do come in.”

Rebekah introduces her to the rest of her family. Kol, Henrik, Elijah, Mikael (who she hates, with a burning passion, at the way he looks at her, considering he is a married man), Esther, Finn. All except one.

“Niklaus is my other brother,” Rebekah tells her. “He should be back shortly.”

“Oh,” Caroline murmurs shortly. “I do not have any siblings.”

Rebekah gasps dramatically, and shakes her head.

“Well, aren’t you the lucky one.”

Caroline giggles quietly, because she’d always wished for a sibling. A brother, a sister. Someone to play with.

That’s when Niklaus walks in, and her breath catches in her throat, as she stares up at the strange man. His eyes are blue - so blue - and she can’t help but be mesmerised by them, as they stare down at her in curiosity. So much so, that she barely hears Rebekah’s introduction.

“Niklaus this is my new friend, Caroline. Caroline this is my brother, Niklaus.”

And then one day when all this was past, I might find you, and profess my innocence. And because you’re y o u , you would believe me. And we would pass a p e r f e c t afternoon, in a corner café t o g e t h e r .
