Summary: Sci-fi AU in which Blaine Anderson wanders the halls of Dalton Academy, a safe haven created by his father after the events surrounding the Sadie Hawkins dance. Populated by student-machines, Dalton is an orderly place where everyone does exactly what Blaine wants … until Kurt Hummel (an actual real boy!) sneaks in to spy on the Warblers—which changes everything. Part gothic fairy tale and part sci-fi adventure, this is a story about adapting and surviving—and breaking free of the cage.
Drawn for the Blaine Big Bang! (Needless to say it’s a delightful work with multiple levels of thinky-thoughts in regards to both Kurt and Blaine and Dalton itself. And robots. The whole piece deftly weaves canon meta with science fiction and fantasy, combined with my favorite literary move of personal/quiet moments contrasted with the absurd. It was a privilege to work with sothinky on this project and I hope you all go read and review and enjoy!)
