“The accident took a lot of things from Blaine, but it never touched his ability to love.”
Snapshots of Kurt and Blaine’s life together, unconditionally loving each other despite dealing with lifelong consequences of a traumatic brain injury.
I’m probably the last person in the fandom to read this remarkable series by @blaineydevon. This series moved me in a way that no other has in a long time.
I enjoy reading stories that push me to learn and think about things that I don’t normally face in life. This series definitely made me think of brain damage in a new and more enlightened way. I also love Klaine AUs which take the essence of Kurt and Blaine and set them in a completely different world. This story most definitely does this. But mostly, I really cared about what happened to the characters. I smiled through the fluffier moments, I got angry at parts where people showed ignorance and bullying, and I sobbed through the entire last story (and that doesn’t happen very often). I was sleep deprived for days as I made my way through this 237k word series.
Klaine fic, my friends, doesn’t get better than this.
