I’m pretty sure a fly just committed suicide in my cup of coffee.

At first I thought it just wanted to take a dip, but then it sank.

I waited for five seconds with every intention to put on my swim trunks and go in if she hadn’t surfaced.

From: Chris Colfer

Turned out I waited too long.

That’s so sad and morbidly beautiful at the same time.

Look, it’s my Fic Rec Fairy again!

I have read the charming and so very interesting “Shatter the Walls for a New Sun” (I will read anything Lucie writes, from now until the end of time), and I will never forget Blaine’s notebook paper that said: TELL HIM YOU LIKE HIM. Guh.

“Senator Blaine” was a slice of heaven–longing, and romance, and politics, oh my!

And I just realized I have read two of these and failed to write a proper review, which is not like me:

“Angel in a Red Vest,” which I liked immediately because it is grown-up Klaine, with all of the complexities that go along with that, and because her Kurt is just the hottest thing ever. I loved how even though their circumstances are so different, they are still Kurt and Blaine, falling into each other, feeling that same pull.

And “Across the Ocean” is one that I read on a bad, bad day, and I think I meant to come back and comment, but the day just got worse! I liked the structure of the emails, and here again, I loved the way that Kurt and Blaine are different, but still drawn to each other like magnets, like they were always meant to be. 

To me, Cimms is the poet laureate of the Klaine fandom, so yes, I’ve read the sweet and hot “While We Two Keep Together” (many, many, many times). 

The rest will go on my ever-expanding list. 

Hmm… could I take a fic-reading vacation? Is that a thing? If not, it should be.

I forget which photographer it was because I don’t know the photographers very well, sadly, but apparently the guy who photographed them in the Bahamas just so happened to STUMBLE ACROSS HUNDREDS OF UNPUBLISHED PHOTOS I saw it on the news and just was like hahahaha don’t dick with me how the fuck do you forget that.
