Why make a Klaroline Magazine?
Is klaroline dead? Maybe for now, maybe just until the writers realize the mammoth blunder they’ve made, or maybe forever. Between two different cities, a returning boyfriend, teen witches, creepy medler of a brother, bun in the oven and ready to pop, and ambitions to be ‘The King’, it seems like the dream of Klaroline is slowly fading. The fandom abruptly and surprisingly came out of nowhere after Our Town (3×11), scaring all the locals of The Vampire Diaries fandom. The support and numbers only growing until they snowballed into what, for certain, is now the biggest fandom of the show. They have endured through half-baked plots, 30 second scenes to appease their shipper hearts, and countless promises and hints to more that mostly just led to nothing. They have gritted their teeth, hissed out in exasperation, and rolled their eyes. But they have stayed, they have persisted, they have been resilient and vocal, and quite frankly, made it crystal clear, that they aren’t going anywhere. No returning boyfriends, no distances, no babies and no take-over plans are going to stop them shipping, dreaming and wanting Klaroline. Klaroline may be dead, for the writers, for the shows, for the actors. But for the fandom, the people, the shippers, it will never be dead, and it’s stronger than ever. So, in essence, The Klaroline Magazine is a platform for the fandom, and its many talents. And an opportunity to showcase our strength in numbers and resilience to those who believe we have no influence (aka the writers), in a positive and non-detrimental manner.
