About Take a Chance
Take a Chance is the fanlisting for Caroline Forbes/Klaus Mikaelson (het) fanfic. (If you're wondering what the het part means, it's short for 'heterosexual' and denotes fanfic depicting a romantic or sexual relationship between opposite genders.)
Caroline (played by Candice Accola) and Klaus (aka Niklaus or Nik) (played by Joseph Morgan) are characters in the TV series The Vampire Diaries.
So, why Klaus & Caroline? Well, Caroline was one of my favourite characters on the show from the beginning, and when Klaus came along, he was just such a fun character to watch. Guess it just began with the wish to read some great fanfic where Caroline was paired with someone else besides the usual suspects. So, I found a few Klaus/Caroline fics and I was hooked. :)
I know there are a lot of reasons why this ship is not to everyone's taste, but that's one of the reasons I like fanfiction so much. We're not limited to the show's canon of what and who these characters are, but in fanfiction anything is possible. And when it's well written fiction, it's even better. :) And trust me, though there's a lot of not so well written stuff out there on the web, there's thankfully also a lot of gems to be found.
