Hey there, everyone!
Yes, I know that it's almost been two weeks already, but between gathering everyone's reaction and putting them all together properly, here we are only now. After all, I doubt that the excitement has left any of us yet, and, if for some reason it has, this will definitely put you all back in the right mood.
Like it says on the little intro before the actual reactions' compilation starts, prior to the 5x11 episode of The Vampire Diaries, it had been asked to the fandom to record their reactions to it, as we had reason to believe that Klaus and Caroline would kiss (and, hell, if they did!), so that they could be all put together, spread, and possibly somehow sent to Julie Plec and company (so, please, feel free to tweet this video to her, the other writers or any of the actors/actresses), to show them how passionate and everlasting our support for this amazing couple is.
I definitely had a lot of fun putting all the reactions I have received together, and it also warmed my heart to see a few people smiling so genuinely or crying of happiness. It's really beautiful what something that is, after all, merely fictional can do to people. For many of us, Klaus and Caroline are more than just two characters on a tv show, seeing them together bring us happiness and strength and I'm sure that I'm talking for many, many people when I say that this love for them has allowed us to meet amazing people that we would have never had the pleasure to call our friends otherwise. Klaroline is something unique, and, yes, the writers never planned for it to become this huge for the fans, but it has, so why not use it in the right way? Because, let's be honest, no other pairing with Klaus or Caroline separately will ever be able to move people in such a way, to have them waiting with bated breath as they try and hold back their tears but can't hide the beaming smile that's fighting to curve their lips. Klaroline is not something which can be replaced, because, as cliché as it might sound, you don't choose your ship, it's your ship that chooses you, and once our hearts have known the perfection that is Klaroline, there is no way that they will now ever settle for anything less.
In true Katherine Pierce's fashion—am I right, or am I right?
That's why I'm also taking this opportunity to link you all to the ongoing petition that regards Klaroline, in case some of you haven't come across it yet. All you have to do is 'virtually' sign it here: http://www.change.org/petitions/cw-klaroline-fans-need-your-help
This idea belongs to the amazing Leah (http://approvesomuch.tumblr.com), and each reaction belongs to its respective owner. You can watch all the full-length, singular reactions here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?feature=c4-feed-a&list=PLLXekkjs2DW8a5j2Ui93_OgPG8uVHnjln (I did not upload mine anywhere, but I'm the one with the pink sweater who's also on the video's thumbnail on the right, just so you know, ahah), thanks to a playlist created by the amazing Becky (http://a-little-blonde-distraction.tumblr.com).
