blaine high school

anonymous asked:

lol at that anon. glee and more specifically klaine helped me accept who i am and my own sexuality, and i know i wasn't the only one. "gay shows" help me see the representation i've never had.

Kurt and Blaine are Glee’s legacy.  They showed LGBT+ youth that gay kids can have everything they want- friends, a career, a loving relationship, marriage, and kids. That there others out there just like them.  That it does get better. 

Further, Klaine showed so many others, who perhaps had not been exposed to many LGBT+ people in their communities that in fact Kurt and Blaine were people just like them. They laugh, they cry, and they love just like every other human.

Because of Klaine, and in large part because of Chris and Darren who played these characters with heart and soul, we saw that Kurt, the boy we grew to love over a season and a half, could have a crush on a beautiful boy, get his hopes up when he learns that Blaine knows his coffee order, just to have them crushed. And then to have said boy say “I have been looking for you forever” after which they shared a first kiss that was in my opinion one of the best first kisses ever portrayed on TV because Chris and Darren wanted to tell this story in a true and genuine way:

In an article published by AOL Entertainment,

“On last night’s ‘Glee,’ the New Directions won regionals after hitting the stage with a pair of original songs – a first for the series – but that isn’t what anyone is talking about this morning. After months of hints and winks, fans of FOX’s hit musical finally got what they’ve been waiting for: The characters of Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) kissed for the first time. And it wasn’t a peck. It also wasn’t overtly sexual or desperate, it wasn’t rushed or clouded with turmoil, and it certainly wasn’t played for laughs, the way many kisses between men are on TV. It was perfect.


“It’s hard to overstate the significance of the kiss between Kurt and Blaine on ‘Glee’ last night,” Michael Jensen, editor of Logo’s AfterElton.com tells PopEater. “Even better, it wasn’t the sort of kiss we saw back in the 1990s where the guys pecked each other on the lips – or worse, the camera cutaway – but this was a real kiss that hinted there is much more to come in this relationship. If we still needed proof how far gay characters have come on network TV, 'Glee’ just gave it to us.”


“’Glee’ has raised the bar of what it means to be inclusive on TV, and viewers are tuning in by the millions, sending a clear message to networks that Americans not only accept gay and lesbian characters, but they are beginning to expect them,” GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios tells PopEater. “It’s stories like Kurt and Blaine’s that continue to remind gay youth everywhere that there’s nothing wrong with being who you are.”

Glee then went even further and tackled the issued of Kurt and Blaine losing their virginity, a story line that paralleled Finn and Rachel. Making the statement that Klaine’s first time was just as beautiful, just as relevant, just as significant, and just as full of love as the heterosexual couple on the show. And Chris and Darren’s scene was perfection:

Thanks to Glee, we saw Kurt and Blaine navigate high school, long distance relationships, angst and heartache. The show often got it wrong, but when it got it right, it do so spectacularly. And never as amazing as our Klaine engagement:

And while the wedding certainly left a little to be desired, Glee still allowed our beloved Kurt and Blaine to declare their love to the world and state their vows, at at time before same sex marriage was legal across the country. A time when they had to cross state borders to tie the know and make it legal. And while the creators of Glee left a lot to be desired, as always, Chris and Darren took what they were given and displayed nothing but love and happiness that they were finally husbands:

In 2013, Klaine was named the Greatest TV Couple of all time by Entertainment Weekly (X)  The article that accompanied their win described their relationship as:

a timeless, groundbreaking TV love story

On the morning of the finale, in an article entitled “The Gay Legacy of Glee” Klaine was described as follows:

In season two, Kurt met Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss). Not only did he get a boyfriend, but a bonafide, epic love story that’s spanned the remainder of the series. Blaine’s dreamy debut,  is the kind of hearts-aflutter teen romance usually reserved for straight kids on TV. They’ve made-out, broken-up, lost their virginity, gotten engaged, broke-up again and eventually got married. They’ve evolved into the central relationship and one of the greatest young love stories in mainstream television. (x)

Another article, written in the Fall of 2016 entitled “The Cultural Significance of Glee” stated:

This character [Kurt] attracted many people in the LGBTQ community in which many found comfort in the character, knowing that they are getting some representation.

The couple [Klaine} became one of the most popular couples on television. The couple go through the same obstacles than any other straight relationship would have, creating the image that there is no difference between a straight or gay relationship. The couple broke up twice, causing an uproar of extremely upset and mad fans. By the end of the of show’s seasons, the two end up marrying each other. The couple known as “Klaine” has been “leading TV’s gay-teen revolution”(Entertainment Weekly). The actors have claimed that they have received hundreds of letters from fans both gay and straight saying that the couple has changed their views positively and helped them to keep an open mind. The phenomenon that is “Klaine” definitely has a positive reaction on the majority of viewers. While these two characters are not the only gay men on the show, they have been the most impact.

Kurt and Blaine made a profound impact on society and greatly influenced how people saw members of the LGBT+ community. And that they play a significant part in enabling LGBT+ youth to know that they were not alone.

For everything Glee got wrong, it will always have its legacy- Klaine.  And that is mainly thanks to two extraordinary men who fully committed to their roles, Chris and Darren. 

And for anyone to minimize this, to state that Chris is not proud of what he and Darren accomplished on screen, clearly knows nothing about him.  And that is heartbreaking.

anonymous asked:

Why are you re-writing all your Kurtbastian stuff for Klaine? That seems kind of cheap to me xD

Hey, nonnie :) I’m sorry that you think so, but you’re overlooking a few things. I am not re-writing ALL of my stories. I am re-writing a select few, and for a couple of reasons. One, they are all AU (supernatural AU’s mostly), and ones that really didn’t get much in the way of love. I have discovered that, in the Kurtbastian fandom, you guys only want to read one thing - ACITW or anything remotely close. If we have Kurt, Seb, and Blaine in high school, with Kurt picking Seb over Blaine after a slow burn, you guys read it, regardless of if the grammar sucks or not. Everything else you pretty much thumb your nose at. The Klaine fandom, however, eats up AUs. I wish I’d known that earlier. I may not have devoted so much time to fics for a fandom that wouldn’t read them. (Mind you, this doesn’t apply to everyone. Some of my Kurtbastian readers are super lovely, read everything, and send me tons of love. But that’s really about seven people, tbh). Also, I’m not re-writing fics that were so thoroughly Kurtbastian that it’s OOC or heartbreaking to read them as Klaine. These were sort of ambiguous. Plus, the originals aren’t coming down. If you really liked my Zombie AU written for Kurtbastian, it’s still there. Go read it. And comment on it. And reblog it. Because if you want to call me cheap for re-writing them, then you should do all those things to show me how much you value them. Plus, I had ideas that I know some of my Klaine readers would love, but just can’t stomach reading them as Kurtbastian. And guess what? I want my fics read. I have over 500. It’s sad to put that much work into a fandom for the same amount of notes and reads as some more popular fandom writers get for their eight big fics. I mean, just because I re-write them for Klaine, that doesn’t mean people are going to flock to them. There’s one writer in fandom now who can sneeze in a post and it gets 300 notes in an hour. I spent over six months writing my last Dalton Boy chapter, and it got five reviews. So don’t you dare try and tell me what I can and can’t do, or call me cheap (WTF!). I’ll pull everything down if I want and re-write it all for Voltron. Don’t test me xD

the prompt:

Kurt and Blaine couldn’t stand each other in high school, maybe one was a jock/cheerleader and the other a nerd/glee clubber. Or they were bitter rivals for competition solos if they were both in glee club. Now they both live in NY and their friends set them up on a blind date, not knowing they went to the same high school.

Chapter 5

Kurt had always expected that by the time he reached his final semester of high school the pressure that he’d felt for four years would have fizzled out. The pressure he’d put on himself to be better, to rise above everyone’s expectations, the pressure to get everything right all the time, to take away any ammunition that could be used against him.

After all, his college applications were in, he’d sent out his audition videos (except NYADA, of course, they would require an in-person audition) and he was still in the lead for valedictorian. That should mean he should be able to coast through one semester.

It didn’t.

Klaine one-shot - “Cozy Little Secret” (Rated PG13)

Kurt decides to take Blaine up on an offer to move in with him, but when Kurt shows up the next morning with his bags, Blaine starts acting more than a little suspicious.

What could he be hiding? (1865 words)

So, this AU assumes that Kurt and Blaine didn’t meet in high school, but when they were a little older and already in New York. I’d like to think this Blaine is more “Dalton Blaine if he didn’t switch to McKinley”. It is a re-write of another fic I wrote (for full disclosure).

Read on AO3.

When Blaine opens the door to his apartment and sees Kurt standing in the hallway with his suitcase, he looks like he’s just seen his mother naked …

… which is not the welcome that Kurt was expecting.

When You Fall

Summary: Same support group AU Klaine (prompt by anon), PG, 5k+ words. Kurt and Blaine meet at Elliott’s LGBTQ+ support group. Maybe Kurt is exactly the person Blaine needed to talk to about his past. And maybe Blaine can help Kurt get over his trust issues in return.

Warnings: Characters talk about bullying, violence, non-supportive parents and death of parents (mostly canon occurrences).

Notes: It’s so cheesy that you might smell like cheese afterwards. I am so sorry (a little… or maybe not at all). I apologize for clearly having no clue what support groups actually do most of the time. I included first-hand experience from theatre and yoga classes to make it more realistic. ;) Also, if anyone wants to talk more character meta, please, hit me up with an ask, I LOVE talking meta.

FF | AO3


When Elliott had told Kurt he was going to start a support group for LGBTQ+ students at NYADA, Kurt hadn’t been sure if many people would be interested in joining. But to his surprise, at their first meeting, eleven people showed up – not even counting Kurt, Dani and Santana. And the group kept growing. Rachel had promised to come to support them but she could only manage to do so a few times because her Broadway schedule kept her too busy.

Well, okay, Santana was only there because Dani nicely asked her to. And then bribed her with sex, Kurt supposed, because asking Santana nicely never had gotten him anywhere. Then again, he wasn’t Santana’s girlfriend.

It was easy to see that Elliott’s yoga retreat had provided him with some inspiration. The support group wasn’t just a safe place for discussion and exchange. He included breathing and trust exercises, some methods that Kurt had definitely seen teachers use in his acting classes before, and even music. Kurt jokingly told Elliott he should start teaching in kindergarten but Elliott knew just as much as Kurt that NYADA had been needing a support group.

People had issues to talk about. It was nice to see that they weren’t alone with their problems. Kurt certainly felt like he was starting to get more comfortable in his skin. Some of their group members even started dating.

After a while, Kurt somehow became the co-leader of the group. He took over when Elliott couldn’t make it or when the group needed two instructors.

The group had been in session for a whole semester and they did a lot of advertising for their first meeting of the new term. The turn-out was great: fifteen newbies. Kurt got them started with a quick overview of what they were going to do in their first session.

As usual, they started with some breathing exercises and moved onto the discussion round. After introductions, a few of the old members shared their stories for the new ones.

“Okay, do any of the new members want to share anything with us?” Elliott asked.

Some did. One girl, Alicia, told everyone how she came out as trans to her parents. Patrick shared the story of his disastrous first date. And then Blaine raised his hand.

He had caught Kurt’s eye earlier during introductions. He was a freshman at NYADA, majoring in vocal performance and theatre, just like Kurt. He made Kurt smile when he said that he loved musical theatre but had a burning passion for pop music and felt like most new artists were really underrated. There weren’t many people who would dare to say something like that at a school like NYADA.

Past and Present by Klaine-Klisses-and-Bow-ties

Blaine Anderson has been a vampire for centuries and now lives in Lima, Ohio with his son and friends. What will happen when he sees the love of his life, Kurt Hummel at McKinley high school? Blaine never expected to see him again, not after he died two centuries ago…

Finn: All right, everyone, listen carefully. Puck’s scheduled to arrive at the Schneider’s pool at 2:00 p.m., which means he should be there at 3:30. Sam, you’re the driver, so stay in the car.
Sam: Well, can I play with the radio?
Finn: Rory, you’re on lookout here.
Rory: Who am I looking out for? I mean, besides Puck?
Finn: Blaine, Mike and myself will triangulate a very carefully planned attack on Puck here, here and here.
Blaine: Is that a bear I’m hiding behind?
Finn: No, no, it’s a bush.
Blaine: Looks like a bear.
Finn: But it’s not a bear. It’s a bush.
Rory: Maybe a shrub.
Sam: What’s the difference between a shrub and a bush?
Artie: What do I do?
Finn: Oh, that’s the best part. You’re going to be the bait. So, when Puck comes in the gate, you just roll your wheelchair into the pool, and all of a sudden, we…

Klaine one-shot - “The Heart of the Matter” (Rated PG13)

After graduating high school and marrying the love of his life, Blaine discovers that he needs a heart transplant. But there’s a reason he doesn’t want his heart removed.

If he doesn’t, he will die. But if he does, will that mean losing the man he loves more than life itself? (2965 words)

I had started writing the premise for this a while ago, but stopped when @sunshineoptimismandangels wrote her amazing fic “Soulmate Script”, which I think eclipses this one by far. It’s much more fleshed out, more adorable than angsty, and who doesn’t like adorable Klaine? This is a bit more personal on my end, but I wasn’t going to finish it. After reading sunshine’s recently for about they 80th time, I was inspired to polish it off for her birthday. So here it is. Let me know what you think. And make sure you read hers because it’s amazing <3

Warning for talk of hospitalization and heart surgery.

Beeping monitors.

Cords and IVs.

The sharp smell of alcohol and industrial disinfectant.

The draft from an overhead vent where a steady stream of cold, conditioned air bleeds in nonstop.

Rough sheets beneath his fingertips that he can’t help straightening, can’t stop adjusting.

The urgency hidden beneath the tension-steeped calm, that even as they wait in this one, quiet room, in other areas of the hospital, nurses and doctors are scrambling. Prepping.

Fighting against the clock.

Kurt Hummel was leaving Lima, Ohio. That was a fact.

But that was all Blaine knew about his mate at the moment.

He and Kurt hadn’t had a conversation that didn’t start or end with Kurt’s imminent future in New York for… oh, who knows how long? NYADA, online apartment hunting with Rachel (and Finn, if those two got their act together), auditions, the freshman class catalogue, actual breakfast at Tiffany’s, NYADA, more apartments, celebrity-spotting fantasies, NYADA, the Met and the MoMA, NYADA, NYADA, NYADA—

Blaine had nothing to contribute to these conversations, so he simply offered attentive nods and mm-hmms from time to time, but smiling through it and trying not to be resentful was exhausting, if he was honest.

Fanfic - My New Years Resolution - 1/1

Title: My New Years Resolution

Summary:Sebastian hasn’t seen Blaine in years when he receives a drunk text from him on New Years Eve.

Rating: PG

Word Count: 1962

A/N: Written for the Seblaine Holiday Extravaganza 2014. The prompt was “Blaine is walking around singing Christmas songs when someone snaps at him to shut up, and Sebastian snaps back.”

It was suppose to be a quiet New Years eve.

Sebastian had an early flight the next day to visit his mother’s side of the family in Paris and opted not to party with the rest of New York. Since graduating high school Sebastian had been trying to curve his previous endless appetite for alcohol and hooking up with faceless boys in back rooms. He figured at twenty-two he should be trying to be the mature adult he was expected to be. His friends and family were pleased with the change but none of them knew the reason why. He’d never admit that a pair of hazel eyes filled with hurt that compelled him to promise to turn over a new leaf was what kept him on the straight and narrow.

Funny how a boy Sebastian hadn’t seen in years could still have that effect on him.

Fic: More Than a Feeling

Here’s my fic for @todaydreambelieversfic‘s gift exchange, written for @author-without-an-outlet! I’ve always wanted to write a big ND reunion fic like this, but unfortunately the whole thing just didn’t work out. I still hope this is as enjoyable. Title of the story comes from the Boston song of the same name, and the song Kurt sings in the story is “When We Were Young” by Adele. 2700 words, PG-13. AO3 link.

It’s the final evening of the New Directions reunion and Blaine is exhausted. Not from the activities of the week or the socializing with long-forgotten friends, but from the pickup of this stupid cat-and-mouse, will-they-or-won’t-they game he has with Kurt.

He didn’t even expect this as he pulled up to Sugar’s majestic Lake Michigan beach house four days ago. With significant others included in the invitation, he was certain Kurt would arrive with Josh, his Canadian model boyfriend. It was a shock to him Monday evening when Kurt stepped out of Rachel’s rental car alone. The only explanation he gave was that they amicably broke up due to Josh’s travel schedule. Blaine was surprised by this, as they’d been dating over three years.

Klaine one-shot - “1 Corinthians 13:7″ (Rated NC17)

Did you miss me, Mr. Anderson-Hummel? (2361 words)

Vague summary is vague. I can’t really write a summary for this one. When you read it, you’ll see why. This is a re-write. Also, despite the title, this isn’t about religion. But you should look it up to see what it says. Did you need to cry today? Read this ;( Warning for heavy angst, past character death, allusion to suicide, prescription drug use, drinking, depression, sexual content, and a bittersweet-ish happy ending depending upon your interpretation.  

Read on AO3.

A bottle of champagne. The sound of the ocean. Blaine running kisses down the column of Kurt’s neck while they watch the sun set from the balcony of their hotel room, his fingers working through the buttons of Kurt’s shirt beneath the jacket of his tuxedo.

“Blaine,” Kurt whines, tipsy and warm and so incredibly happy he could melt into the floor. “What are you doing?”

“I’m trying to get you undressed, love,” Blaine grunts, pinning Kurt to the scrolled iron bannister with his hips to keep his woozy husband (of five hours so far) upright, “but you’re not helping. Please put the camera down.”

****************

“So, would you characterize your love of New York as an intense crush or everlasting true love?”

“Hmmm.” Blaine pretended to think through the question while Mike laughed on the other end of the line. “Can I say neither?”

“That’s cheating, my friend, and you know it.” 

Blaine could hear the honks and squeals of the Chicago streets behind Mike’s voice, like a warped version of the city sounds outside his own apartment window. Since the big Glee reunion and Blaine’s move, they’d fallen into weekly phone calls while Blaine made breakfast and Mike walked to his first class of the day. In an odd way, it still felt like he was giving his friend a ride to school, minus the smell of his dad’s 1993 Dodge Dart.
