“...So here’s the sitch: Adam and Kurt are giggling in the kitchen, Brody is working, and Rachel is in the bathroom. (Side-Note: Adam, please see yourself out. Blaine’s face is cuter than your accent. ....)”—Hollywood.com Review of “Girls (And Boys) On Film (x)
“I can’t compete with a fantasy.”
Can I just talk about how upset that makes me for a minute?
Have you ever had a fantasy, Adam? Do you know what a fantasy is?
A fantasy is a figment of your imagination, a dream or a wish or a prayer. A fantasy is contrived, made up of your thoughts and ideas, of intangible guesses and improbable ideals. A fantasy is perfect, flawless, wonderful.
Fantasies are as far from reality as you can be. Fantasies don’t hurt, fantasies don’t cause fear or stress or worry. Fantasies are escapes, daydreams, illusions.
And Blaine? Blane Devon Anderson, Kurt’s first (real) kiss and first boyfriend and first love and first everything that matters? Blaine is not a fantasy.
Blaine isn’t a fantasy because Kurt knows him forward and backward, inside and out, from his curly head to his baby toes. Kurt has counted the freckles on his back and played with the little hairs above his belly button and kissed every inch of his neck. Kurt has heard his laugh and his sob and his moan. Kurt has made him cry and made him beg and made him yell. Kurt has seen his hair natural and gell-free, has smelled his morning breath, has felt the brunt of his anger and his hurt and his sadness.
Blaine isn’t a fantasy because he has hurt Kurt and offended him and embarrassed him. He asked too much. He gave less than he should have, less than Kurt deserved. He cheated and lied. He broke what should have been unbreakable, he did the unthinkable, the nearly unforgivable.
And yet, for all his faults, Blaine is not a fantasy because of his virtues, too. Blaine isn’t a fantasy because he has surprised Kurt and loved him and cherished him. He kissed Kurt when he least expected it. He sang to Kurt and with Kurt and about Kurt. He showered Kurt with gifts and affection and love. He made Kurt believe and hope and trust and love and fall and fall and fall.
Have you ever seen a fantasy do all of that? Have your fantasies crushed your dreams and yet made them come true, too? Do your fantasies have lives of their own; hopes and dreams and fears and faults? Do your fantasies keep you up at night, shaking with uncontrollable tears? Do your fantasies make your feel like you are flying, soaring, more alive than every before? Do your fantasies make you feel so much that your heart nearly bursts?
Blaine is not a fantasy. Kurt and Blaine and their relationship - past, present and future - is not a fantasy. Kurt knows Blaine better than he knows himself, knows his sins and his shortcomings and his perfect imperfections. Kurt knows what they can be together, how they can laugh and fight and love. Kurt knows Blaine far better than he could know any fantasy.
Finn was a fantasy, when Kurt dreamt of their impossible, slightly beefy, yet well-dressed children. But, in true fantasy fashion, Kurt’s ideas of Finn didn’t match up to the real Finn; the Finn that would mock him and hurt him and hug him and become his brother. Sam was a fantasy, when Kurt thought that beneath that head of “natural” blonde hair was a dream come true. And when Sam proved to be straight and not, actually, a dream at all, that fantasy stopped, too.
But Blaine? Blaine is so much more than all of that combined.
Blaine is sloppy kisses and gropes in the back of a Prius. Blaine is muffled sobs and sniffles back stage or on the fire escape. Blaine is bow ties and colorful pants and gelled hair. Blaine is a teenage dream and a somewhere only we know and a come what may. Blaine is every enigma and mystery and contradiction wrapped up in one pint-sized, beautiful boy. Blaine is slow-dancing at prom and sipping coffee in the Lima Bean and singing romantic duets. Blaine is fighting and disagreeing and forgiving and laughing and loving. Blaine is a friend and a lover and a kiss and a promise. Blaine is family. Blaine is home.
So, no, Adam, you are not competing with a fantasy. You are competing with something completely and utterly real. You are competing with the most real thing in Kurt Hummel’s life, with the most real thing in the world. You are competing with true love, with soul mates and destiny and fate and meant to be.
You might not think you can compete with a fantasy, and you might be right. But, I can promise you one thing: Blaine Anderson is not a fantasy, and you still can’t compete with him. Try your best, Adam, I dare you. Just know that, one day, the very real Blaine Anderson is going to win. It’s inevitable. It’s fate.
give me a character and i will answer: Adam
- why I like them
- why I don’t
His wood-like qualities.
- favorite episode (scene if movie)
Guilty Pleasures, when he was replaced by a boyfriend arm. TEAM KRUCE!
- favorite season/movie
Season 5, when he’ll be gone.
- favorite line
Was I your rebound?
- favorite outfit
Anytime he’s not wearing that fucking beanie.
Adam/Brody - THERE’S some quality friendship
- head canon
Adam is a con man and doesn’t even go to NYADA. He’s living in the basement of the school and pretending to have a show choir, bilking kids out of “fees”. He’s actually a 47 year old criminal from Oklahoma.
- unpopular opinion
I don’t want Adam to stick around and be friends with Kurt.
- a wish
Kurt tells us, sometime in the next few eps, that they are not seeing each other.
- an oh-god-please-don’t-ever-happen
Him or the Apples showing up ever again. (I love you Joey! Sorry!)
- 5 words to best describe them
Wooden. Creepy. Fuckingbeaniewearinghipster. Plot. Device.
- my nickname for them
I have one thing to say, if you don’t like it that’s fine you can unfollow if you want but it’s how I feel so..
If Adam is such a genuinely nice guy like we’re meant to believe and I was expecting then he would have taken Kurt’s feelings into account and done what’s best for Kurt and not for himself.
Kurt Hummel is a catch (duh) so he took the selfish root and is trying to become something that he himself said he’ll never be.
When someone is plainly standing in front of you, obviously still torn up about someone else (especially after you’ve heard things and seen him crying over it), who just told you to your face that he’s not over him and basically still loves him the last thing you do is try to replace those things to make yourself seem better. Even if Kurt denying it, he isn’t a monster, he doesn’t want to hurt anyone and thinks he needs to be over it but Adam basically just set himself up as the rebound/for destruction.
What he should have done, which would have made us believe in his genuinely nice guy nature, is tell Kurt he needs to be alone right now. To find himself and sort his feelings out. Decicde what he wants and then see what happens.
I just love the utter lack of Adam. Besides that one tiny mention he didn’t get anything. They easily could have included him watching TV with Kurt and the rest but they didn’t.
He won’t be in the next two episodes and there is a hiatus inbetween.
Will the GA even remember him should he ever come back? LOL
Okay. So CWM was beautiful. That scene literally surpassed my expectations, which is really saying something because it’s Glee and it’s what I’ve been waiting for since before I knew I wanted it, and deep down I worried that they’d screw it up somehow. But it was perfect and so well done and so well edited and I bow to them for it.
But leaving the storyline there, and leaving the Kurt/Adam thing—I don’t even wanna call it dating because idek what to call it—there, while we KNOW Adam’s not gonna be in at least three more episodes, which basically means Klaine won’t get back together and Kurt probably won’t have any focus just really really sucks.
I need resolution.
Lbr, I watch Glee for Kurt and Blaine. If they aren’t interacting for three episodes and then I have to sit through a hiatus knowing they’re broken up and He-Who-Shall-Not-Ever-Be-As-Good-As-Blaine is holding Kurt’s hand and doing God knows what with him… after CWM. After the way Kurt reached out and pulled Blaine to him and looked like THIS in his arms:
(idk about you but all I see is an expression that screams home)
After all of that (and the five months we’ve already been waiting), no resolution is just too much for my Klainer heart to take.
gettingcrazywiththecheezewhiz said: I just get sick of them trying to convince us that Baby’s Got Back is a song of a guy noticing someone’s unique outer beauty when… lol. It’s so so not.
I couldn’t even start a proper response to this because I was too busy face palming. I dunno, I think every fandom has their own cray cray theories about things, but I dunno how…..I mean……THAT SONG IS ABOUT ENJOYING BIG ASSES. HOW CAN THERE BE SYMBOLISM IN IT BEYOND ENJOYING A ROUND THING IN YOUR FACE?
I don’t have anything against the shippers. I just don’t see or feel any chemistry between Adam and Kurt whatsoever. I mean, awesome, he compliments Kurt, but compliments do not a relationship make. I dunno, they’re just not a good fit in my eyes. I can stomach the cutesy Kadam stuff, but the sexual stuff that shows up on my dash makes me feel yucky and I can’t help how I feel about that. That’s not Kurt’s soulmate. I’m all for Kurt dating someone in order to figure out Blaine is the one for him, but I’m not feeling Kadam at all. AND I don’t see how anyone could really want Kadam after “I Do”.
Your Adam/OKJ hate is Awesome. It has the perfect mix of passion, sarcasm, wit and truth. It warms my grinch heart. I am actually gonna be sad when he fades away.
I really tried to give the guy a chance but honestly, has there ever been a more pointless and useless character on this show? Like, Chandler provided a plot, Eli provided an almost-season long plot, Sebastian did quite a few things to move storylines along (and Grant gained quite the following)… what has been the point of Adam? I mean, really. He spent his first ep giving Kurt some compliments and… that’s it?
“Adam, I’m sorry I want to be with Blaine.”
Kurt and Blaine stand in front of him, hand in hand. They look super happy.
Adam nods. “That’s fine. I understand.”
He starts to walk away, content to leave Kurt behind for his happily ever after when, suddenly, something in his brain changes. Like a switch has been turned and his true purpose is finally revealed.
“Midgame!” he shouts, “Must go out in a blaze of horrific glory!”
He turns around and jumps Blaine (not in a fun way) wrapping his arms around his neck and going for it.
Kurt panics and hits him on the head with a frying pan until he lets go.
