Hell!o I was just thinking about the amazingness that is Klaroline and was just wondering what your opinion might be on a few things. (I'm not trying to stir up some shit or start a fight I am genuinely curious as to what you think) What do you thing, in you own personal opinion, is the most underrated KC moment ? Favourite KC moment? Most iconic? and what you believe to be KC's biggest flaw or problem ig. Like I said, I Iove KC just really wanted to know what you think. MERCI
So most underrated KC moment? I think it was this even though technically was not a Klaus x Caroline scene but it was a Klaroline one in its core. And this one spans through the ages for this Ship. Literally.
Was it worth it?
Klaus in the shadows watching Caroline dance with Tyler. Watching her being happy. Not with him but with his mortal enemy. Seeing her in love. Happy. Smiling. So close and so out of reach. His heart aching. Breaking.
He can’t take that away from her. He can’t ruin it. Because she comes first.
And so it begins.
And I will use a Doctor Who quote for what comes next when it comes to what Klaus is capable to do for Caroline without asking anything in return and it sums up what he feels for her and the lengths he is ready to go at to ensure he happiness.
“ Without hope, Without witness, Without reward “
In the end for Klaus the only thing that matters is Caroline’s well being. No questions asked. Nothing to ask in return. No limits.
His feelings for her far are bigger than his hate for Tyler and his need for revenge. Yes, conveniently enough there was always a layer of manipulation when it came to separating Caroline from Tyler. Which as always Klaus always thrives in that element as does Caroline too. And she proved it by using Klaus’ feelings in order to make him pardon Tyler and make sure that Tyler would not die and in the long run would not get Katherine’s fate either. But that would not work if those feelings were not there and if they were not deep enough.
And this scene proves it.
Because Klaus, either Caroline knows it or not, either she will know what he will do for her or not, he will always put her needs above his hate and his anger and his need for vengeance. He is flawed. He is selfish. He is twisted so his idea of mercy is a problematic one but when it comes to Caroline he is ready to walk the line.
In that scene after
everything that happened to Klaus that night Caroline was still in his mind and this was
something that Caroline would never learn.
But this would go full circle over and over again.
Because later on he would ask her again amidst everything that was happening in his life if she would give him the same choice she was ready to give Tyler if Tyler would just put her first and let go of his revenge. Because the world could be changing around Klaus and would be falling apart and thousand faces would come and go but if Caroline would ever give him a chance…a choice to make…then his choice would always be her. She would never be a second choice. He would never sacrifice her or put anything else before her.
Because actions speak louder than words.
Caroline: Because I made him choose Me or his stupid revenge fantasy, and he chose wrong. …
Klaus: Would you give me the same choice?
Which btw…later on he did let go of his centuries’ old revenge against Katherine for Caroline so the answer to what his answer would be -if Caroline would give him the chance- was clear. And he would do it without her giving him the choice either. Because in the end Caroline’s needs for Klaus come first without him asking anything in return aside her well being…because the same question comes around over and over again.
Was it worth it?
To give Caroline what she needs? To make her happy. Safe. To make sure she will be okay. Is Caroline worth it? With no questions asked. With no reward. With no witness. With no hope for him either. Without having anything to gain. Surely not her.
It doesn’t matter because in the end for him the important thing is not what he needs and what he wants. But what Caroline needs and what he wants even if he won’t be part of that. She comes first. Every time. Full circle. Every time.
And every time the answer will be the same. Yes. It will always be worth it. She will be worth it. She will come first. Before his needs. Before his hate. Before his revenge. Because this is true change in him. Because no matter how selfish Klaus is and will always be he will always be selfless for Caroline. It is engraved in his heart now.
And the same question will be coming around over and over again. Full circle every single time.
His family would be in danger. He would be in danger. Chaos all around and despite everything, even from far away and even without her ever knowing the full lengths he will go to ensure her happiness Klaus will always put her needs first even by endangering his entire world despite the world falling all around him.
Because Caroline is worth it. For Klaus it will always be worth it. She will always be worth it. Every. Single. Time.
Over and over again. Through days, years, centuries. To make sure she would smile. She would be happy. She would be safe. She would be content. She would be just okay. Even if he would never see her again. Because just like that night when she danced with Tyler there was distance between them. Either a window or a state or a continent. The distance is there but it does not matter. Only what Caroline needs matter.
And no matter what. Either Caroline would know or not Klaus will always look out of her. And it will be worth it. And hell save me now I am even going to use TO canon to support this argument.
Full circle everyone.
Was it worth it?
Of course it was. It will always be.
Personal favorite KC scene you say?
This was their turning point for me. When things turned serious. Not just an infatuation. Not just promises. Not just the allure. Not just the idea and the potential and the obsession and the fun idea of it all.
This was when both sides felt something deeper. Under all the layers. A connection. An honest connection.
Most Iconic KC scene. Well I think everyone will agree that it was:
Because let us face it…HOWEVER. LONG. IT. TAKES.
The word almost between them. Almost there but not. Almost starting but not. Almost finished but surely not.
