I kind of got these two updates out quickly, part one is HERE.
Summary: Caroline Forbes takes a post-graduation camping trip in the mountains with her friends only to return to nothing and no one. Can she find out what’s happened, especially with arrogant Klaus Mikaelson along for the journey?
“It ain’t no fun no more, I don’t know what to say. The honeymoon is over… It’s never gonna be that way again (the Cruel Sea)
Klaus wanted to hug her in that moment as she watched her dog being buried. She looked so shattered and it took all his willpower not to react. Instead he focused on what was going on, or not going on as it seemed. His mind went back to that night in the mountains and all of those airplanes which he’d dismissed as AirForce all too easily. Klaus decided to blame that possible error in judgment on the way his brain would momentarily stop working when she was nearby.
"We need to get out of here and raise the alarm,” Elijah suggested, placing the shovel on the ground gingerly. “Go to the police.” Klaus winced inwardly knowing that it was Caroline’s mother he was unknowingly talking about and seemed to be missing. Luckily Caroline didn’t notice his comment, still heavily dazed by what had transpired in the last half hour.
“What if there is no one else?” Klaus didn’t want to be negative but there was something very wrong about this situation and he figured it was better to address it now than stay in denial any longer.
“Someone’s obviously been watching too many post-apocalyptic films. Don’t be so stupid, Niklaus,” Elijah replied, dismissively. Caroline looked over at him curiously, like she had finally returned to the discussion after the initial wave of grief had passed. They held a silent conversation with their eyes both arriving at the same realisation.
“The planes,” she murmured after a brief pause. “You don’t think this is a coincidence, do you?”
“What are you both babbling about?” Katherine asked, the confusion on her face apparent.
“The other night a fleet of airplanes flew over,” Kol explained.
“You saw them too?”
“Let’s just say I couldn’t sleep, Caroline,” Kol offered, sending Klaus a knowing glance. “Whatever they were, Elijah’s right. We need to raise the alarm and we need to do it now.”
“Your house is closest,” Bonnie said, looking to the three brothers earnestly. “We should start there.”
As they made their way back to the jeep and climbed inside, Klaus couldn’t help but think about his last conversation with his parents. He wasn’t sure if he could forgive himself if that was the last time he’d ever see them again. He’d been so angry about their news and had conjured up this camping trip as an excuse to get as far away as possible.
As he watched the scenery rushing past, Klaus couldn’t help noticing just how quiet everything seemed and not in a good way. Yes, it was a small town but the herds of cattle he had become so accustomed to seeing on the side of the road had disappeared from view, almost as if they had fled in fear of something or someone. Caroline caught his eye in the rearview mirror as she drove, another silent conversation confirming she had noticed the eerie stillness too.
His place was deserted too upon quick inspection of the property and Klaus was fairly certain all of their houses would be similarly empty. That dreaded fact meaning no one was coming to their aid. But what were they supposed to do now?
3 days earlier…
“Where did you get to last night?’ Kol asked curiously, cornering him near the stream the next morning.
"I don’t know what you’re talking about,” Klaus lied, knowing exactly where he’d been and who he’d been with but had no intention of sharing it with his immature, younger brother. Plus, he was trying not to think about just how beautiful she’d looked in the moonlight, clad in those fitted, denim shorts and a blue checked shirt that complimented her eyes perfectly.
It’s important for little
girls to have characters to look up to, and also be entertained by the
fantasy parts. There are a lot of not-so-good role models out there for
younger kids, it’s good to have someone they can relate to on
So, this is my Klaroline fusion with an Australian series of seven books by John Marsden. It was also made into a film at one point and now a TV series apparently. This is my first foray into sci-fi. All chapter titles from the awesome soundtrack.

“May he rest in peace,” Bonnie murmured, looking at the fresh grave sombrely. The others in the circle had their heads bowed and eyes downcast, even Klaus.
Caroline watched stoically as Elijah shovelled the last of the dirt atop the makeshift grave. She had been playing with her beloved dog Jesse only four days earlier and now he was dead. How she had no idea. Caroline had found his lifeless body on the driveway and had run inside to rouse her parents but Liz and Bill had vanished. To where she had no idea either.
Looking back she realised just how young and naïve she’d been up until this point. Caroline’s biggest worry was passing her final exams and graduating with the rest of her class. Once she achieved both of those things, Caroline was looking forward to a lazy summer with friends before her interstate college experience began. Little did she know what and who was about to come for them.
When she’d tried to call for help, Caroline discovered the electricity was cut, the house phone line dead and their cell reception was non-existent. It was frightening, paralysing and eerie all at the same time. If only she could go back.
Six days earlier….
“It’s our last summer in town dad, the least you can do is let me take the jeep for a camping trip,” Caroline pleaded. “Anyway, it’s only four days, what’s the worst that could happen?” Famous last words in hindsight.
She was almost 18 years-old and it felt so juvenile to beg. She was headed to North Western University in a few months and the least she deserved was some form of reprieve from her parents over-protectiveness. In all of Storm Lake, Caroline had lucked out, being the only daughter of the town’s most prominent lawyer and the local sheriff.
Her best friends would tease her mercilessly, especially rebellious Katherine who would constantly flaunt the rules and sneak out with local boys past curfew. Caroline was jealous of her supposed freedom until her parents had decided to send her to boarding school in Des Moines. Caroline wasn’t quite sure how sending her to a big city with more than her fair share of guys was considered a punishment.
She’d been sad to lose her friend so suddenly at the start of senior year but at least she still had Bonnie. Well, that’s what she thought until the Mikaelson family arrived and threw their small town into a spin. The younger brother Kol had taken an immediate liking to Bonnie and they’d spent their time getting to know each other very well as it turned out. She’d been gushing to Caroline about her first time only days earlier.
There was no doubting their looks were impressive but Caroline decided early on that his brother Klaus Mikaleson was missing the personality gene unlike his sweet talking brother. He kept to himself, barely managing a mumble of response to anyone, too caught up in his art apparently. Bonnie had shared that Klaus resented his geologist father for bringing them to town for field research after growing up in busy London.
His oldest brother Elijah was already attending college at Princeton and their youngest sister Rebekah was at an exclusive music academy in Switzerland, leaving the two brothers in Iowa. Unlike Kol who’d made it his social responsibility to fit in, Klaus had chosen to keep his distance during his final year and Caroline wasn’t complaining. It was guys like that who weren’t worth her attention. Well, that’s what she told herself anyway. The only annoying and equally irresistible part was those dark, blonde curls and crimson lips that had a tendency to curl upwards into an annoying smirk when she passed him in the halls.
I know I never shut up about this show, but it’s for a good reason. Are you sad about Bellarke and need a long ass show to invest yourself in? With a slow burn couple, built on trust and respect and support? LOOK NO FURTHER!

“I didn’t tell Caitlin Stasey that Homer was gonna grab her here, so what you see when Deniz grabs Caitlin is all
very natural. I thought it would be nice to get her reaction on screen. I
think it sets up that Homer and Ellie have a platonic relationship,
there’s nothing romantic here, which is very important.”
