lots of caroline

anonymous asked:

I know you are happy for the Klaroline endgame but don't think that it is sad that Caroline was the only vampire left? She will live for ever or at least get to live for a more extended time than humans do and she will see everyone she loves die. It has already started. Her father, her mother, her husband. She will outline her children too. How is that a good end for her?

How is it not?

Let me start by saying that despite JP’s obsession for turning TVD into a human soap this show was originally based into the vampire mythology. It is meant to deal with vampires and their existence. The pros and the cons and the darkness and the grandeur and the immortality. Ships and endgames aside Caroline Forbes ending up the only vampire in a show that is meant to be based on the vampire genre is an honor and a homage to everything this show once stood for. Every vampire of the show faced the same destiny you describe here. Damon, Stefan, Katherine, the Originals. And yet when their stories began and they were introduced to the audience everyone took in their story expecting to feel their age and get to know their ageless journey throughout the centuries. No one complained about their predicament. Everyone wanted to get more into it. Either their story was tragic, or intriguing, or dark, or hopeful. It was interesting because the very concept of immortality is an unachievable dream that intrigues humans. So many writers get to write for Vampires, Demons, Gods, Immortals, etc. Because their stories are enveloping every hope and aspiration and tragedy and epic emotion a human can have and dream of. The unreachable. The impossible. Even something to sent the human soul straight to damnation. All those elements hide greatness and misery in them. And Caroline Forbes was meant to endure and persevere and become a Vampire. She relished in her nature. She owned it. She accepted it and craved the perks that come with vampirism. She would not turn to a human if she had the chance. She never wanted or expressed that wish. For the simple reason that she likes been strong, ageless, fearless and she prefers who she is not to the girl she used to be.

On the other hand everything you describe in your ask are things that can happen in a human life too. So what happens then? You give up? You curse your life? You find no meaning to it? A person can outline others and can outlive even love and memories and things he or she never thought possible. Calamities and tragedy are part of life either that life is meant to carry on for a few decades or longer or less. It is what we do with our time and how we face the things that happen to us that make life worth it. It is even how we stand in the face of loss and loniliness. How we grieve. How we move on. How we hope. How we persevere and if there was one motto that Caroline Forbes ever had in that show was perseverance.

That does not take away the importance of the things you write in the ask. If anything they give more meaning to Caroline’s existence because facing these losses will make her live every day to the fullest. Will make her wiser. Will make her not lose track of time. Will make life have meaning.

Do you know who else also contemplated the very same thing you ask me here? How eternity would have no meaning? How it would suck? How it would be a source of depression. How it would take away and take away and leave no meaning?

Caroline Forbes did. In her birthday in season 3.

So much so that she did not want to celebrate her birthday and ended up giving a funeral to the human girl she buried behind.

And do you remember who exactly showed her that very same day that while life takes something from you it gives you something else back? That there is meaning to found in forever. Because truth is that loss will come and you contemplate giving up.

“ And I could let you… die. If that`s what you want. If you really believe your existence has no meaning.

I`ve thought about it myself once or twice over the centuries, truth be told.

And let us face it. Who doesn’t think of that in their lives? In our human lives fantasy aside have we never thought of that very same question? Of how to endure with loss? Of how to go on? Of how we can outlast the pain and not break? How to hold on to people that leave us behind or we lose them by death or any other reason? There is always a time even for the most optimistic people where they think that life has no meaning or ask themselves what is the meaning of it all.

So here Caroline’s immortality is a parallel to what we face in real life because art in its own way tries to give answers to such questions.

So what is the meaning of it all? How could Caroline ever move on and why should she want to? Why would that be good for her?

Because with the loss there is also the gain. Because life is not black or white. It has endless colors and twists.

Imagine that. Let it sink in. Life does not end with loss or with pain. This is why we are alive after all. There is whole world is out there still waiting. Genuine beauty. And music. And art. And more birthdays. More chances. More dreams. More potential. More possibilities.

A thousand more birthdays.

Because life does not end with loss and misfortune. You do not get to sacrifice your life in the name of loss or lost love or broken dreams. Life moves on. With endless possibilities ahead. With optimism. You grit your teeth and you move on until you can smile again. Life continues with pain and loss and tragedy and laughter and love and joy. Because every turn gives you something and it is in your hand to take that something and make something out of it. Something for you. And this is why people still dream of immortality and want to live longer and crave stories of ageless creatures. And admire those tragically and gloriously beautiful stories. Because life goes on and is full of wonder. And people can only wish to be able to be bigger than life. With everything that includes.

Time is unrelenting and brings change and with it society and culture and life itself alters and people want to be there to see it. To experience it. To live it. Because people reading history and get fascinated by it and then dream of the future. And Caroline Forbes will be there to live all that. Maybe she will outlive some people and maybe she will carry their memories with her but she won’t outlive everyone. Because she will get to meet more people. She has endless possibilities ahead. To love again. To laugh again. To be an extrovert. To be an introvert. To find more questions and answers. Endless horizons ahead and this is why Klaroline and the idea of a vampire Caroline Forbes was always so alluring to begin with and enchanted so many people. Because it held the promise of eternal. The promise of however long it takes. The promise of genuine beauty. Because it was brilliant and ugly and the truth and the lie and it was about brutal honesty and manipulation and rage and soothing silence and it was challenging and unpredictable. Just life is.

And how important is to actually be able to grasp that? And by that I mean life. To have nothing more to do than ask? Because this is what life is. It is your choice. It is as good as you let it. Because you need to want to live it. You need to want to ask. All you have to do is ask. And then take it step by step. Let me say it again. Life does not end with loss or grief. Emotion is not finite. Relationships come and go. Love can be replenished or be found in so many places even unexpected ones. Hope does not end. Meaning is always in different things all the time if you only open your eyes. Pain does not last forever no matter how cruel and unforgiving it seems at first. You fight back and you live. And all you have to do is ask.

And this is one of the many reasons why I personally like Klaroline so much and why their endgame was so important for me. Because of this very message that you sent me. Because Klaroline began with the very same core of question you put in that ask. Their very first defining scene was about what you ask me here and it answers your question perfectly. And that was why I was so moved by Klaroline chemistry and potential aside. Because of the promise of endurance. Because it was a promise of how Caroline could live and become greater than life and …loss. This is how it all began. And this is how Caroline will move on because this has been her origin story and not the end. It is only the beginning. But that is the beginning of another story.

So you tell me anon? How is that good for Caroline? Or for anyone for that matter? How is it good for anyone to actually live their life? To find meaning in that kind of existence?

Maybe simply by living. And that is a good thing.

the last episode is gonna be so bittersweet because i hate the show and what they did with it but they are also my precious babies and i`ve invested 8 years in that shitstorm and i just well idk im gonna miss watching the show and being pissed at it

Oh look I made a toon! Aaaand it’s bad XD I really need a drawing pad or maybe stick with traditional. I’m thinking about remaking her because she really doesn’t seem like a loli XD but yeah this is Caroline (she had a pear shaped body) and I tried giving her things a mechanic needs the small bag holds her tiny tools and she has a flashlight on her arm and this is for @blogthegreatrouge blog @thebbros sorry if it’s a lot ^^;

Caroline
- she’s a mechanic and usually helps the gremlins
- a forgotten toon but doesn’t mind it
- she really looks up to Ortensia and Oswald
- tries to check up on Oswald but she doesn’t want to bother him
- loves playing with the Bunny children when she sees them
- a bit taller than Bendy by an inch or two
- two different colored eyes (the other is red)

Film: The Wind In the Whomping Willows
Director: Bathilda Bagshot
Plot Summary: 4 friends go for a picnic. Boredom ensues.

I’ve never liked Bathilda Bagshot, and yes this may have been because of an incident at one of my parents’ house parties where she literally hissed at me when I reached for another baked potato, but the point still stands. She continues rely on prolonged dialogue scenes that don’t move the plot along and stretch to the point of absurdity, until the viewer is begging for a change in scene, shot, anything, only to presented with (unbelievably) yet more boredom.  

So put aside whatever resentment you’re harbouring that I just name dropped Bathilda Bagshot and that she used to come to my house, and wallow in how wasted my Friday night was watching this garbage. My personal highlight was the closing credits, because it meant I could at last be free from this endless hell of four people sitting in a wood, talking about sandwiches and grass for two hours straight.

Naturally I imagine some people enjoyed the film, (Bagshot does know her way around a camera, I’ll give her that, the cinematography was flawless.) however dear, cherished, hopefully-subscribed-and-not-reading-this-on-the-free-trial-reader, I must ask: who doesn’t like a little during movie commentary? Before Friday I would have said no one, but after Friday I would have to say no one, with the exception of uptight, haughty gingers.

Rather like Penelope Clearwater’s unfortunate character in The Wind in the Whomping Boredom, I too found myself being falsely accused of a crime I did not commit. In Clearwater’s case (she shines in the film, despite Bagshot’s insistence she be holding a mirror in every scene) it was of stealing the picnic sandwiches. Mine was the slightly more serious charge of ‘injuring’ a fellow reviewer.

I want it stated for the record that no such injury occurred, and that as far as I am aware popcorn is rarely classified as an assault weapon, but I am willing to hear argument on the matter. However I could be wrong because the reviewer in question seemed to genuinely enjoy the Wind In the Whomping Waste of Time, so maybe it wasn’t her eye that should be examined, but her brain.

In summary: this film has done the impossible and been even more tedious than Bagshot’s last effort, A History of the Snake Inside Me, which I didn’t think possible. My nine-year-old criticisms rarely stand up to scrutiny but I think my judgement of Ms Bagshot being The Worst has proven correct. Furthermore, I want it noted for no particular reason at all that if at any point I am contacted by a lawyer about paying medical bills for a non-existent injury, I will do something else ‘ridiculous’ and ‘childlike’ like toilet papering a Certain Reviwers house or broadcasting my witty and hilarious movie commentary over a loudspeaker during each and every film I will ever attend from this point on.

Film: 101 Fantastic Beasts
Director: Newt Scamander
Plot Summary: CGI animals have a good time. Audience have a good time.

Scamander has always had a talent for animation, even his questionable films like Beasts Which Are Fantastic If Only We Knew Where To Find Them (nonsensical, long-winded title) and The Porpentina Goldstein Story (thought it was going to be about hedgehogs. It was not.) should be seen purely for their onscreen beauty alone.

Thankfully, 101 Fantastic Beats wasn’t a repeat of the Hedgehog Incident but rather exactly what it says on the tin, 101 Fantastic Beasts romping around the city and having a jolly good time, until one of them dies and the entire world becomes a bleak hell-scape that you are desperate to escape because you can’t stop crying.

Unfortunately my screening experience of this charming film was somewhat hindered by the near constant stream of insults and accusations of ‘eye assault’ from a Certain Reviewer which culminated in said reviewer tipping popcorn that Was Not Hers across The Innocent Victims Lap.

The reviewers in question needn’t have ever spoken again but because a Certain Reviewer had slandered another Wholly Blameless Reviewer in her paper, which the Wholly Blameless Reviewer’s Mother reads, some things had to be sorted out. And those things were trying to get the Certain Reviewer to print a retraction so the Wholly Blameless Reviewers Mother would stop bloody going on about it.  

On top of this Wholly Blameless was mocked mercilessly for showing emotion during what ranks as one of the most heart-breaking scenes of all time, next to such movie moments as the ending of Dead Poets Society and the shooting of Bambi’s mother in Bambi. Obviously a Certain Reviewer needs to borrow a heart so she doesn’t have to poke fun at others for having what she does not: feelings. Wholly Blameless would be happy to lend her some of his, as he’s just good like that and not at all the ‘slice of expired a*shole’ he’d previously been accused of being.

101 Beasts has heart (unlike Certain Reviewer’s) and is appropriate for the whole family excluding twelve year olds, because obviously they’re terrible and you’d never want to take them anywhere anyway, so it’s a win-win.

(The editor wishes to clarify that the writers list of saddest movie moments is flawed because it has left off the Jack death scene from Titanic because the writer thinks ‘Cameron clearly emotionally manipulated the audience’ and ‘there was plenty of room for both of them on that door’ because the writer is an imbecile. The editor cannot believe he is the film critic.)

Film: The Cupboard Under The Stairs
Director: Gilderoy Lockhart
Summary: You really don’t want to know.

Gilderoy Lockhart has won two Oscars, and yet every time I watch one of his films I have to forcefully remind myself that it wasn’t shot by a nine-year old with a camcorder who uses their dog as a sound assistant. The dullness of the film will stun and bewilder all who see it, as it defies reason why such a thing should be made.

True Hairy Chins Shouldn’t Be Seen By The Public was wildly funny (despite meaning to be a serious documentary), but aside from that I can’t think of a Lockhart film I’ve ever enjoyed aside from classics like Gadding With Ghouls and Travels With Trolls which hardly look like Lockhart films at all, despite him having directed them.

Cupboard Under The Stairs is so mind-blowing ridiculous, from the wooden dialogue to the extended shots of director and star Lockhart doing mind-numbingly boring tasks while smiling garishly, that when I found myself sitting next to a Certain Reviewer I didn’t even bother to move but rather stayed if only to have something to do. A slight physical fight broke out, and by fight I mean a Certain Reviewer hit me for a comment I made about the twenty second long director credit, so obviously I pinched her, and then before I knew what was happening we had been thrown out.

I don’t want you to think, dear reader who has clicked on this review and therefore pays my rent, that I might have acted unprofessionally by getting thrown out a movie twenty minutes in. I want to clarify: I absolutely acted unprofessionally. There is no ‘might’ about it. But my point still stands: the film was garbage, and that fact that I could tell this from only the first twenty minutes is further evidence of its garbagery.

Now I know at this point you’re all clambering to hear more about the two hours I spent alone with a Certain Reviewer, as for some bizarre reason, you’re all incredibly interested in our relationship built off pure loathing and irritation. Well, prepare yourselves readers, because a Certain Reviewer’s favorite filmmaker is not only Wes Anderson (!! There should be a limit to the amount of pastel on a screen at one point). But she also hasn’t read the best novel of all time, The Great Gatsby, and then told me that that ‘wasn’t that weird’ and asked me to ‘close my mouth’ because ‘its been two minutes’ and its ‘getting weird’.

However she did earn points back by liking Star Wars (if she hadn’t, I may have committed a crime worse than Cupboard Under the Stairs’ acting) and she also noted that Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet was her sexual awakening, and I to felt a deep attraction to DiCaprio and still do despite his insistence on growing a beard every few years. She laughed at this, but I think it was a laugh of agreement, so therefore it wasn’t bad.

Cupboard Under the Stairs was one of the worst atrocities committed to film, but a Certain Reviewer agreed that Han shooting first was an important part of his character, so all is not wrong with the world.

RED CARPET WATCH

The Godric’s own Sirius Black, gossip columnist extraordinaire, was sent to the Red Carpet premiere of A Streetcar Named the Knightbus and reported back to us on all the hot gossip and glamour of the night.

In what may have been my favorite red-carpet to date, not in the least because Rita Skeeter was thrown out for badgering guests only ten minutes in, but because the greatest thing in the world happened. It was so great in fact, that I managed to look past the colossal injustice of me not being invited to walk the carpet myself, which was clearly a mistake (the editor Remus J Lupin would like to clarify it was not) and have a roaring good night.

May I just clarify that by roaring good night I mean I got absolutely plastered (The editor wishes to state that The Godric does not promote drinking) so the night comes back to me in bits, and from what I can remember everyone looked great. I can’t remember what the film was about, or even if they let me in (editor: they did not.) but even if it wasn’t I’m sure the film was good too. (editor: it was average)

But as I mentioned above, the best thing in the world happened, and that was that The Godric’s very own film critic James Potter got to walk the red carpet. He will tell you this is because his insightful and poignant columns are finally getting the attention they deserve. Any sane person would then loudly talk over him and say the real reason is because he’s become rapidly more popular with the introduction of a Miss Lily Evans, also a film critic, into his weekly reviews. Or, as James calls her, A Certain Reviewer. (editor: for legal reasons the editor must assert that A Certain Reviewer could be any individual and to please not sue the paper for defamation.)

Turns out Miss Evans had a popularity boost as well, because she was also on the red carpet, looking ravishing in a backless teal ballgown, and honestly, readers, it was a sight to see Evans in that dress. Potter obviously thought so to, as he spent the entire night staring. And not subtle staring. Obvious, in-awe, I-can’t-believe-a-person-can-look this-good, staring.

Now, once I’d gotten over the fact that not once in our ten-year friendship had James ever given me that look, I was absolutely thrilled. I had a thirty pound bet going that they’d be together by May and I’d just won, if that look was any indication. (the editor: it was twenty pounds.)

Furthermore, Evans and Potter spent the entire night talking, not even noticing how the cameras had utterly latched on to them despite having no idea who they were, purely based on the looks they were giving each other. It was a sight to behold, seeing two utterly oblivious people in formalwear hold a conversation probably about the merits of dressing gowns (they talk about weird stuff like that) while what felt like the entire world took photos.

Now I’m aware I’m meant to be discussing the gossip and glamour from the whole night and not just two D-list celebrities who happen to both be my friends. But consider this: I do not care. These photos are modern art. Both so clearly have a crush on each other it’s embarrassing. Even Moony would have to agree (the editor: I do.). Anyway, in summary of the night: I bet everyone reading this that they’ll be screwing in a month. Mark my words.

[image: a man in a suit and a woman in a dress, against a while backdrop with A Street Car Named the Knightbus film logo printed across it. Her head is turned towards him, laughing, holding a delicate purse. He is looking at her, mouth parted, like she is the first girl he has ever seen. Something to be looked at just to make sure she didn’t disappear, blown by the wind, like in a dream. A dream girl- except not. A real girl, in a real dress, in a real place. He can’t quite believe it. A hundred camera flashes go in the background.]

“Everyone has an image of my mother, but they really don’t know her at all. When they think of my mother, they tend to think of her style or her sunglasses. But my mother had a real intellectual curiosity, which helped to shape and influence my father and his administration. She read a great deal, she introduced my father to many of the authors and poets he quoted in his speeches. She was a smart, insightful person with a sense of the ridiculous. And she had lots of opinions!”

(-Caroline Kennedy)

I'm late as usual. But I need to say this today.

I don’t even know how to begin this without saying thank you to all of you.

It’s all I can really say right now because I am so incredibly thankful to all of you.

I’ve been at a loss for words since the first award was posted.

Then the second where I tied with the epic @she-walked-away who has inspired me so much in my work.

And then the third award.

Gosh. I love this fandom to the bone and I hope you all know this. This little corner of the fanfiction universe has saved my life time and time again.

Sorry, I’m very near to sobbing right now and that would look strange where I am.

I am so moved by all of you today and everyday. The things you share and the way we have only met through words and yet you give so much of yourselves.

Okay, now I’m crying.

But I want to thank all of you.

The kcers who voted and even those few who didn’t because you make this fandom up.

I want to thank the other wonderful, beautiful, riveting, and diverse women that were nominated in all categories because they look to you.

I aspire to be like all of you. To write as well. To be as nice and loving. To give of myself to these friendships that I have found with you all.

Thank you.

Small words but they hold so much of me in them.

Thank you.

Love and Respect, Jenn.

anonymous asked:

Could you please make a comparison between how Stefan treats Caroline, and how Klaus treats her? Or a comparison between the ships? (If you have time) Thanks!

This has taken me a couple of days to answer, I apologise! I was super busy with work, and I wanted to get my thoughts properly together.

Okay, so for me, the main difference between Steroline and Klaroline, is that Klaus has always put Caroline first. Always. And you can’t tell me he hasn’t. Klaus was never in love with Elena, he never put Elena before her, and he never put his family before her either. 

The best example I’d use for this is in 4x02, when Klaus CHOSE to save Caroline over Rebekah. And you know what the difference is with Stefan? Is that he’d choose Elena 1000 times over. The only reason he isn’t is because Elena is in love with Damon. And he’d choose Damon over her. He already has. He even left town, without Caroline, when she refused to travel with him, AND WENT WITH HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND. Like, come on. If it came between Elena and Caroline, you bet your ass that Stefan would choose Elena. And that’s where Caroline’s insecurities stem from. The fact that she was never a “first choice” for anyone, and Klaus gave her that. Up until the whole Hayley thing, that was so random and out of place, btw, he never once glanced at any other female on the show.

Klaus has ALWAYS understood that Caroline is but a teenager (probably in her 20s now, whatever), that she is very, very young. She’s barely been out of Mystic Falls, and she is still very innocent, despite being a vampire. Especially in regards to Klaus, who has seen the world several times over, and even in regards to Stefan. Klaus always gave her space, and always wanted Caroline to decide what she wanted, for her to make the move, and he never once pressured her into anything she didn’t want. The line “In a year, or even in a century, you’ll show up at my door and let me show you what the world has to offer” comes to my mind, and I honestly think that sums up their relationship pretty brilliantly. 

However, to me it seems that Stefan never really understood that, and after she professed her feelings, it seemed as though he wanted her to be ready for him. There and then. No questions asked.

In my opinion, although Caroline was the one to say she had feelings for Stefan first, he was always the one that came across as pushy. In the season 6 finale and the episodes leading up to it, he wanted her. Then and there. No questions asked. Even though she’d just lost her mother, just had her humanity returned to her, and obviously needed time to herself. He tells her “I forgive you”, as though he as nothing to apologise for, too. Because he’d done just as worse things to Caroline, with his switch off, as she did to him. And then in the finale, when he tells her he’ll wait for her (”When you’re ready for me, I’ll be ready for you”), to me that line is just ridiculous, because Caroline had been waiting for him, pretty much all season (or seasons, since apparently she’s always been in love with him). Maybe it wasn’t intentional, but that came across as pretty pushy to me, the fact that he was being “forced” to wait for her, because she wanted time to herself.

Also, he wanted Caroline to be prepared to leave town with him, when he knew that she’d given birth to those twins. And that she’s obviously going to care for them. Even though, they technically weren’t hers, biologically (even though she carried them), he always said “They’re not hers”. Even to Klaus himself. And to me, that’s incredibly insensitive. She carried them, they’re hers. She’s allowed to want them, to care for them, since that option was taken away from her after becoming a vampire, and even Alaric had told her that they were pretty hers. Because they are. You carry a child for 9 months or whatever, and you’re going to feel SOMETHING for them. It’s not gonna be easy to give that up, and I pride women who can.

Klaus is the first one to correct Stefan when it comes to this, I think, “She carried two lives in her womb. She gave birth to them. And now she plans to turn those cooing little faces over to Alaric without so much as a hiccup of hesitation. You’re right. That does sound like the Caroline I remember.” To me, that not only shows that Klaus obviously knows Caroline better, despite the years that Stefan has spent with her, but that he also wants what is best for her. Klaus can obviously understand what emotional distress giving up those kids would do to her, as it would any women, and he wouldn’t expect her to do so. But, Stefan would. All because, he, all of sudden, wants to get out of Mystic Falls. When he clearly wanted to stay all those years. And you know who it was for? Elena, not Caroline. Again, because he puts himself and the people he loves first. And I don’t think he wants to include Caroline. At all. But Klaus would.

I could compare this ship forever, but I think that’s the basis of the difference between Klaus and Stefan and the way they treat Caroline. Honestly, I think it all comes down to the fact that Klaus puts Caroline first. And he doesn’t even claim to love her, but Stefan does. Not yet anyway. He likes her, a lot, and it’s clear to see that Klaus cares a whole lot for Caroline. I don’t think Klaus is one to say “love” lightly, and I believe it would take him at least a good decade(s) with Caroline to even contemplate “loving” her.

Another point, is that for her own wedding (which she’s been planning since she was a little girl, we all know) is that Caroline barely has any control over that. She’s wearing Katherine’s necklace, and they are using Steferine’s song. Like, come on? I genuinely believe that it is Stefan’s way of replacing Elena and Katherine in his life. Like, putting himself in Elena’s path and dating her, was his first shot at replacing Katherine. You can’t tell me it isn’t, because why would you feel the need to date someone who looks EXACTLY like the girl you once loved? And now that’s fizzled out, I think Caroline is his shot at replacing them both, although she isn’t a doppelganger and looks nothing like them. He wants an obedient girl, and that’s not who Caroline is. I honestly think the relationship has just destroyed her character and any development she’s had, and all those insecurities have come racing up. 

Does this happen a lot?” Asked Caroline.
“Nope,” I said. “Sometimes Beverly rescues me, sometimes Lady Ty, occasionally Molly–I think there’s a rota.”
“Shit,” said Caroline. “You’re not joking, are you?”
“Don’t be daft,” I said. “There isn’t really a rota–we’re not that well organised.
