Klaus Mikaelson uses violent and controlling behaviour to cover up the fact that deep down he is so vulnerable and so desperately just wants to believe that he is worth something and that there are people who truly love him. After growing up with a mother who cursed him to be a vampire, an abusive father who wasn’t even his real father and being the only werwolf in his family, making him feel like a worthless and disgusting outcast, he spent his childhood feeling weak and like he was never enough. He was made to feel like there was nothing good or valuable inside him. As he grew up he attempted to fill this hole he felt by lashing out violently and showing hateful behaviour to those around him. If they wouldn’t love him or appreciate him, then he would make them fear him. He surrounded himself with people who he could control and who feared him so that he would not slip back into the feelings of weakness and so he could try and make himself believe he was powerful and superior. There are so many moments in the Originals when for a small moment we suddenly can see Klaus’ true emotions and it is heartbreaking. When he meets his real father we see that really Klaus is still just a child. We look at this mans face and we see the beaten and weak outcast child who only ever wanted his father to see him as an equal. Klaus has such love inside of him for his siblings, Hayley, Caroline, Cami, Marcel and of course his daughter, who he loves more than anything else. Deep down Klaus Mikaelson is extremely gentle and loving and emotional and sensitive and his life has made him so vulnerable. He just wants to believe that there is good inside him and he wants something better for this daughter than what he had. WE MUST PROTECT KALUS MIKAELSON.
A/N: so this wasn’t requested but its my birthday so this is what became of it.
Waking up seems like a big task until I realize that it is
my birthday, which essentially puts me in a good mood. I turn towards where my
loving and caring boyfriend, Damon, is, or should be at least as he is not
there. Thinking that he might be making me breakfast, I get up walking towards
the kitchen only to see instead of seeing Damon I see a note instead.
Elena needed my help, sorry.
Don’t know when I’ll be back,
I sigh, maybe he is planning
a surprise party for me, yeah maybe that’s it, I thought.
All throughout the day no one even once told you happy
birthday just talking to me like it was just another day, and maybe it was, it
just hurt when my own boyfriend spent the day with another girl, not once
wishing me a happy birthday or even wishing for me to have a good day.
It’s 9pm when I get back to the boarding house, thinking
that maybe just maybe they did plan a party but it was the opposite of what I was
expecting when I walked in. Damon and Elena were making out on the couch in the
lounge room not even noticing my presence so I walk out going straight towards
the grill for a well-deserved drink. By 10pm Klaus walks in and notices me at
the bar, slightly tipsy, he walks up to you
“No why on earth is the birthday girl drinking alone?” he
asks, surprising me as no one has talked to me, only the bartender asking what
drink I wanted.
“What?” disoriented, I glance up at him. He looks at me
“You alright love” he asks
“Define alright?” I mumble into my drink, taking a sip
“Oh a part from the fact that I have horrible friends? Well let’s
see, I woke up alone, my boyfriend spent the whole day with another girl, no
one besides you, in this god forsaken town, wished me a happy birthday, not my
family, no one. I have had a shit day only wanting to come home to spend the
night with my loving and caring boyfriend only to find him making out with
Elena. But apart from all that I have no idea what you are talking about” I rant,
looking to Klaus afterwards with a tired look on my face and a tired smile, he just
looks at me, listening to what I have to say.
“well they are idiots especially that Salvatore for ever
betraying you like that, that Scooby-doo gang that you hang out with don’t deserve
to be your friends or even look at you “Klaus says with the sincerest look on
“Absolutely, I haven’t, and wouldn’t lie to you sweetheart”
he says truthfully
“You mean that?”
“Of course” he says just as a group of people walk through
the door, who just so happen to be my so called friends
“Ignore them love” he says to me, pulling my face away to I was
looking at him instead
“Oi! (y/n)! what are you doing talking to him come over
here?” Caroline calls out to me, I look over at them and look straight at Damon
who has a confused look on his face. I look back to Klaus, seeing him look calm
but also worried, for me, and I felt nice because it has been a long time since
someone, anyone has looked at me with such tenderness and love.
“Nah, I’m good” I say, they all look surprised at what I said.
I turn back to Klaus and grab his arm pulling him out of his chair and pulling
him towards the door
“I’ve got a hot date to celebrate my birthday with” I say as
Klaus and I pass by them. Klaus made the rest of my birthday the best birthday I
have ever had.
I suspected there might be something more to be told of this story, and I think as we talked about this, there has always been a curiosity or sort of feeling unresolved. - Joseph Morgan about Klaroline @ SDCC 2017.
Almost everyone that knows Niklaus wonder how a vengeful monster like him can deeply love and care for another, like you. In these 1000+ years of living, he’s never met someone like you. Aside from Rebekah and Elijah, you were the only person who can look past his flaws and accept him for who he is. Because of you, he feels that his existence now has a purpose. He is now dedicated only to you and his child.
Klaus was elsewhere taking care of ‘business’ while you stayed at the Mikaelson compound and watched TV in the bedroom that you and Klaus share, laying on the comfy California king bed.
Of course, Klaus always felt the need to have some sort of bodyguard with you at all times, so Elijah offered to stay and keep watch. Whenever you got hungry, you didn’t mind making yourself food, but you know how the Mikaelson brothers are with you, they treat you as if you’re a delicate little flower carrying Klaus’ child. So, Elijah had food delivered to the compound.
You were enjoying your food in bed until your phone rang, it was your boyfriend, Klaus.
“Hello sweetheart.” Klaus greeted through the phone.
“Hi. Checking up on me again?” You said to Klaus. Although you appreciate his concern, he literally has been calling every 30 minutes since he left.
“Of course, love. What kind of man would I be if I didn’t?”
“I know I know. But Elijah’s here.” Elijah, sitting on the bed next to you, looked at you after hearing his name, then you looked at him and smiled. ”I’m perfectly safe and so is our baby.” Now being 4 months pregnant, you looked down at your small belly, rubbing it. Your cheeks blushed red at the thought of how utterly happy you are carrying the hybrid’s baby.
“Perfect. I’ll see you soon, love.” Klaus hangs up the phone with a smile on his face. Oh, how he cannot wait to come home to you.
‘You know you can stop going all out for these dates, you
already won me over’ you say to Klaus at the end of another splendid date with
your boyfriend, the hybrid himself. Your twin sister Elena and her friends
would never approve although it seems you have won over his family, which is
the only reason why you and Klaus have to keep quiet on your relationship, because of your family.
‘Yes well a beautiful young lady like yourself should be
treated like a queen, my queen’ Klaus replies
‘Smooth’ you reply leaning over the console to give him a
quick kiss goodbye and leave the car watching as he drives away, you walk up
the steps to your door, a giddy, wide smile on your face although the good mood seems to leave as
soon as you see who is in your home, not overly fond of your sisters friends as
they are constantly plotting against your boyfriend.
‘Hey everyone, what evil scheme did you come up with tonight’
you tease getting a drink of water from the kitchen and sitting on the couch
next to Bonnie.
‘Why do you smell like the devil?’ Damon questions a
disgusted look of confusion
‘What?’ Elena questions. Damon says one word that erupts the
biggest argument that you and Elena will ever have,
‘Klaus’ which also starts the questions being thrown at you.
Although one stands out
‘You’re with Klaus? He’s the enemy, is he compelling you?’
‘NO! Okay actually he gave me a necklace that has vervain in
it to stop vampires from compelling me’ you shout
‘But (y/n) he’s still the enemy’ Elena says
‘No he’s not you’re just putting the blame on him every time
something goes wrong’ you yell back at her
‘He tried to kill me’ Elena says to you to get you to
realise that he is a bad guy.
‘yeah and Damon killed Jeremy, for no reason may I add plus
he didn’t know that Jeremy was wearing a ring but you forgave him pretty quick,
at least Klaus had a reason to kill you’ you tell her trying to get through to
her that logic is idiotic.
‘I can’t trust you now that I know that you’re with him’ she
mutters and you go quiet looking at her with disbelief then glance your eyes
over everyone else who are looking down not denying or agreeing with Elena so
you just accept that your sister, your twin someone who was supposed to always
be by your side, now can’t trust you.
‘okay you know what?’ you start to say while getting your
phone out trying to figure out which Mikaelson sibling would be best to come
pick you up, ‘I have never said this out loud before because you know I’m a
good sister but right now you don’t deserve it I’m actually glad you don’t
trust me now I’m safer away from you because you let all of your friends and
family either die, get injured or lose their loved ones for you to survive’ you
tell her off and by the end of your rant there’s a knock on the door and you
hear Elijah’s voice through the door, you mutter a goodbye to everyone accept
for Elena and walk to the door and walk into Elijah’s open arms leaving
‘You okay?’ he questions ‘I will be’ you mutter into his
shoulder and as you open your mouth to ask him something he beats you to it.
‘No I didn’t tell him, if I did it would have ended very
differently’ he says and you sigh.
Once you get to the mansion, Klaus comes to the door as soon
as he senses you presence and as he sees you he gives you a questioning look
but then sees your saddened face and immediately rushes over to you with a
‘What’s wrong love?’ he asks
‘Just hold me’ you mutter not ready to replay what just
‘Well, well couldn’t get enough of us?’ Kol and Rebekah walk
in but soon lose their smirks when they see you.
It’s amazing how a family of psychotic murderous vampires
treat you better than you own family.
“I suspected there might be something more to be told of this story, and I think as we talked about this. There has always been a curiosity or sort of feeling something unresolved. I’m interested to see what’s happened, what happens. I’ve read some scenes which they are in together, so I know a little bit more than you guys. But yeah, it feels right.” - Joseph Morgan talking about Caroline Forbes and being Klaroline af during sdcc 2017
