I don’t really have time to write like I should, but I want to write something, so have some one-sentence fics. We used to do these all the time back with LJ was a thing.
NYC crew, Klaine, Samcedes, discussions of Finn’s death and past Finchel. Artie/Ladies. Rachel/Broadway. Liberal use of the word “sentence” and some of them are actually 2-3 but whatevs who’s judging.
#01 – Comfort
Kurt doesn’t believe in God, or in any higher power, really, but he does believe that his good fortune in the weeks before Finn’s death—finding out his Dad was cancer-free, Blaine’s proposal, his friendships with Elliot and Dani, forming the band—was someone’s way of saying here, don’t forget—there can be joy in your life as well.
#02 – Kiss
Kurt and Blaine kiss more here, Rachel thinks, and Sam and Mercedes are always on top of each other, and she’s not alone she knows but sometimes she watches them, and feels lonely.
#03 – Soft
Blaine fenced in middle school, and he boxed at Dalton, and he was a cheerleader at McKinley for christ’s sake, but he pokes at the gentle growing roundness of his stomach nowadays, and thinks when did I get so soft?
#04 – Pain
It’s amazing, Artie thinks, but chlamydia doesn’t hurt, and he would have never known he had it if he hadn’t—if he hadn’t gone with the other boys: he owes them, now.
#05 – Potatoes
It’s her turn to make Monday Night Dinner, and she sees Kurt groan when she pulls dinner out of the oven. “Mercedes, please tell me that’s not an entire pan full of just tater tots—” “It’s a casserole!”
I’ve been toying with a big Glee fan project for a few months, and now I am starting to get my ducks in a row. Consider this a a soft-launch, with the first bit of info to come after this season wraps up. The biggest thing I need help with is getting the initial post I’ll be making in May out there beyond what I’ll affectionately call the Klaine circle. I need Lea fans, Quinn fans, Santana fans, Finn fans, Will fans. Everyone. I have faith my trusty followers can do that! :)
"Tested and strengthened." Reblogging again for self-reassurance.
Anonymous asked: I do think you're absolutely partial towards Klaine. Kurt is cold, uncaring, and Chris Colfer's acting choices aren't helping either. Blaine looks totally unhappy since he's in NY. They failed at living together, they always fail at communicating. I used to ship Klaine but now it doesn't look like a healthy relationship. Shipper goggles are blinding a lot of clever people, imho. Sorry if I seem harsh, but I think a lot of fans are pretending not to notice the obvious.
Klaine goggles? MOI?
Um, yeah. You could say that. I’m way more than a little partial towards them. I’ve done a terrible job of hiding that. Which is to say that I haven’t tried, not even a little.
If you feel something different? Rock on, you do you. We’re all entitled to watch the show in whatever ways we want, and we all bring our own goggles to the table - personal baggage, shipping preferences, whatever.
But I have a LOT of thoughts about Kurt and Blaine as of 5x16, and am tickled to have the excuse to write them down. Will this convince you that I’m “right” and you’re “wrong?” I’m sure not, and that’s really not the point. I’m gonna do me, you do you. Ship (or not) and let ship, man.
Under a cut because BOY did this get long. I HAVE SOME THOUGHTS is what I’m saying.
