1. Thoughts about Kurt and Blaine in 5x16 →

    notenoughtogivebread:

    Blaine Anderson is not okay.

    We have been down this road with him before; he self-sabotages. And it is not pretty, and the way he goes about it is so hydra-headed that it’s difficult to get a handle on. But it is predictable. And there are warning flags before it…

    Yap, to his own disadvantage I can so see Blaine charming his therapist, too. As hurtful and destructive to himself his self-sabotaging circles of behaviour are, they seem to get him some little something he’s yearning for. Be it being noticed, or assured he’s loved or something else. If that’s what he really needs though, oh gosh, who am I to know. But I like that thought that some therapists or people in general are able to inspire us out of our endless repetitive behaviour, by giving as not what we expect to get as reaction. We must do the learning ourselves, but we can use little pushes.

    That’s why I find it so interesting that faced with Blaine’s sad and tearfilled eyes (a trait Blaine surely has learned that is ‘useful’ to him, though I do not suggest a consciously manipulating intent here, just learned bahavior), with all that pain on display, so that it almost seems to take inhuman strenght not to immediately run to him and comfort, that faced with all that, Kurt in this moment keeps his distance and not lets himself get drawn in and involved in the rehearsed dynamic. But gives a different push.

    Might be an interesting impulse to Blaine, but might probably not yet be enough this time, to braek his complex circles.

  2. Through trial and error they will work out that you can’t fix what is broken in someone else - and no one else can fix you. You do get to choose who is standing next to you while you do the work, though.

  3. I love, love, love what Kurt/Chris did in that scene. This is once again a fight that boils down to Blaine’s fear of Kurt leaving him, because Kurt’s growing and Blaine feels he can’t keep up. And like the times before, Kurt will comfort Blaine, hug him, assure him that he will never leave. Once it’s due.
But this is also a fight about strenght and power, of Blaine fearing he is less than Kurt, is weaker, is his inferior.
So I love how aggressively and with so sound a harshness Kurt takes his stand here. Because yes, he does stand up for himself, but he does more I believe. He is not immediately like ‘awww, Blaine baby, come here, poor insecure thing, let me mother you…’. Because even if that might soothe Blaine, probably, it would in that very situation just affirm him in his role, kind of belittle him, put him even further in that mind set of needing to be taken care of right now (not that there is anything wrong with that once in a while, but because that is the point of their argument, being on equal footing).
Instead Kurt challenges Blaine with his harsh tone, to meet him on eye level. Making a statement that he knows Blaine can handle it, handle him like this. That Blaine does not need to be treated like a fragile thing right now, but that Kurt knows, believes that even like this Blaine is strong enough. That is far from not caring, the opposite, really.
And that little moment, when Blaine has averted his eyes. Kurt’s look is immediately softer, asserting and attentive on Blaine’s reaction, checking if he’s pushing too far… but it feels to me like also he is cheering Blaine on inwardly. Like, come on, Blaine, I know you can pull yourself out of this.
Then Kurt’s affectionate smile when he hugs Blaine after. A little tired maybe, because he knows they will probably end up there again, because insecurities like that run deep. But also so content and sure to end up with Blaine in his arms, every single ones of those times yet to come.

    Clouds clashed like curtains over the baleful sun, streaks of rain dyed gold as they lashed the ground, snapping beloved flowers in two. Elizabeth glanced upwards, her blue eyes heavy with guilt and regret and resignation. “Keep Kurt hidden away tonight,” she said softly, knowing her husband would hear her. She turned away from her flowerbeds and found Burt standing in the doorway, his face set in a grim mask. “You feel it too, don’t you? There’s a storm brewing in this town, and when the moon reaches its highest point it will break. We cannot allow any harm to come to the young ones. Darling, can you alert the other families? It is our duty to protect their children as we do ours.”

    "Momma!" Schooling her solemn expression into a bright smile, Elizabeth opened her arms as her son launched himself at her legs, grinning up at her. "Can I go to Sammy’s for dinner? He says he’ll show me all his robots, I wanna go, please!”

  6. KHBB Fic: Burn

    Title: Burn
    Author: daltoneering (that’s me!)

    Artist: soundsaboutrighttumblr
    Word count: 25,790 
    Rating: NC-17 
    Pairing: Klaine

    Summary: Kurt Hummel is widely regarded as one of the best dragon riders of his order. He’s efficient, clever and responsible—so it’s natural for him to be named tutor to the newest rider to join the order, Blaine Anderson. However, with trouble starting to brew in the North and a worrying amount of very distracting feelings about his young student, Kurt finds he has a lot more on his plate than he anticipated. 
    Warnings: Mild action/violence, kidnapping, mentions of past Kurt/Sebastian

    A/N: I want to say a HUGE thank you to my wonderful beta, undefinedkosmos, without whom this fic would be and awful mess and probably wouldn’t have been submitted on time. Also, check out that amazing art! Go shower Nina in love for it. And a shout-out to Beth chriscolfuck for cheerleading and keeping up my morale!

  7. So the above one showed up on my dash recently and all my mind could see was something like that hasty doodle. For science. … Anyone catch my drift?… I had to stare several seconds to realize what it really was, but, you know, anyway…

    Title: How Do You Hold A
    Artist: soundsaboutrighttumblr
    Author: satonawall
    Rating: PG-13
    Word Count: 6,200
    Warnings: kidnapping & captivity, mentions of rape (no rape happened or happens in the fic), mentions of minor character death
    Fic Summary: Blaine is slowly but surely growing tired of his life. Then he becomes the warden for Sebastian’s new prisoner.

    A/N: Huge thank you for the very talented soundsaboutrighttumblr for getting the chance to write for her art (I have no technological skills to add it here, but you should definitely check it out and tell her how amazing it is). Also thanks to saltycrow for checking for mistakes. Any remaining ones are my fault, not hers.

    “I’ve got a job for you,” Sebastian said before Blaine even had the chance to turn around to see who’d entered his rooms. He was leering somewhat more obviously than usual.

    Blaine kept his face neutral. It seemed to require more effort nowadays

    “A job of what kind?”

    Sebastian’s smile turned devious.

    “That’s up to you.”
