carole and burt

4

I always thought that when I, uh- How do parents go on when they lose a child? You know, when I would see that stuff on the news I’d shrug it off ‘cause it was just too horrible to think but I would always think, “How do they wake up every day?” I mean, how do they breathe, honey? But you do it though. And for just a second, you forget. And then, oh, you remember. And it’s like getting that call again and again every time. You don’t get to stop waking up.

Klaine Advent 2016: Day 3 Charm

Day 3: Charm

Kurt and Burt adjusting to Blaine in season 2. 3145 words

It’s the thing people said about Blaine, or so it seemed to Kurt. Right after “dapper” and before “gentlemanly,” they would say it—“He’s so charming!” And Kurt had to admit he was so in agreement with them; it was something he was proudest of about this boy. He felt sometimes like walking around Lima with Blaine was like being wrapped up in a cloud of that charm. Faces that used to be closed off to him, eyebrows raised, now were softened and welcoming.

Just on one outing on a pretty spring afternoon, three different shopkeepers had smiled and said, “Keep the change” to Blaine. I mean, who did that? And the lady in the jewelry store actually found some Easter wrapping paper to add a special touch to his present for his mama; when Blaine went for his wallet to tip her, she had actually blushed as she stopped him with a manicured hand to his forearm.

“That was weird,” Kurt said as they waited in line at the Sundae Shoppe.

“Hmmm?” Blaine questioned with his eyebrows as he bent over the bag containing his purchases.

“Mrs. Sims in the jewelry store. I’d swear she was flirting with you, but, I mean, she’s at LEAST 30.”

“Maybe she has spring fever, Kurt,” Blaine replied. “I know I certainly do. Or maybe it’s the company. I think you should always wear just exactly that shade of blue. It really brings out your eyes.”

Okay, so maybe those people had a point. He was charming and dreamy, and Kurt’s insides were melting with pleasure AGAIN. He longed to grab his boyfriend’s hand or steal a kiss. He settled with looking down and blushing. “Watch it mister. Flattery will get you—”

“A ride home, I hope?” Blaine asked, leaning close to whisper, “And some makeout time in the driveway? Kitchen? My room?”


The one person in Kurt’s life who didn’t seem to be taken by Blaine’s charm was Kurt’s dad. Kurt couldn’t blame him, actually. Finding a boy—an obviously hungover boy—in your child’s bed sort of had a way of killing any positive first impressions. Not that he DISLIKED him, really. But even after Kurt danced through the door from Dalton, with the news that he had a boyfriend, a delightful boyfriend, the best boyfriend, Burt still seemed to hold Blaine at arm’s length.

Quite a Surprise

This is a one-shot in the Worth the Wait verse. It can be read on itself, but of course it makes more sense if you’ve read the main story first :-)

I’m dedicating this story to @lallagoglee and @sunshunes, who recently celebrated their birthday. I totally meant to finish the story by their birthday, but time management has never been my strong suit, sorry… Happy belated birthday, sweeties!

Pam looked around her, admiring the tasteful decorations. The room was huge, yet it wasn’t draughty in the least, unlike the medieval castles Pam had visited all over Europe.

At first sight, the blocky grey building had seemed forbidding – a fortress, only meant to house soldiers – and she’d wondered why on earth anyone would hire this venue for an engagement party. Surely, the Plaza was way more elegant, and probably cheaper than this.

Then, she’d been escorted inside, and she’d started to see just why Blaine’s boyfriend – what was his name again? I’ll have to ask Cooper – had chosen to have the party here. No, there were no crystal chandeliers nor gold-plated crown mouldings, and the floors weren’t gleaming patterned hardwood. But there were soft carpets and beautiful antique furniture, the ceiling boasted intricate detailing, and there were flowers in vibrant colours, their sweet smell following you everywhere. This place had character and heart, and Pam approved.

The invitation had come as quite a surprise. Well, that was an understatement. It had come as a lightning bolt from a clear sky. Pam hadn’t even known Blaine was seeing someone, so to find out that they’d been together for five years and that they were so serious that Blaine’s boyfriend – Keith? Was it Keith? – was planning on proposing, well… That had been quite a shock.

Author Spotlight: Flickerthenflare day 4

Day 4: Recs!

SO SORRY FOR THE DELAY! I’ll need to make it up by reblogging repeatedly :)

Sometimes ficlets don’t get enough love in rec lists, and I’m as guilty as anyone, so here are a few of my favorites:

@alilactree "Summer Skin

“Ow.”  Blaine rubs his forehead and his nose, blinking stars from his eyes.  Has that screen door always been there? Blaine scowls at it.

“Whoa, you okay?” Burt Hummel opens the door from outside, balancing a plate  of hamburgers and hotdogs and looking at Blaine with fatherly concern.

What is Blaine supposed to say?

Oh sure, just walked into the door due to your son’s tiny, tiny shorts.

He chuckles awkwardly. “I think the heat’s getting to me.”

It’s the perfect season to revisit this fic! (Well, it’s the perfect season  in some parts of the world, but the perfect FIC wherever you are.) I  love the humor. Blaine’s interactions with Carole and Burt really seal  my love for it.

@skivvysupreme’s ”Hair


“I can’t believe I’ve never seen it like this,” Kurt murmurs, reaching  across the back seat of the car to slip his fingertips into the curls  around Blaine’s ear. Rachel and Finn, still buzzing over their prom  court wins, are chattering away in front now that Rachel’s shock has  worn off and she’s got her usual command of her tongue back. “A whole  year together, best friends for longer, and I’ve never seen it. How did  that happen?”

This is my favorite of all the fics I’ve read that talk about Blaine’s relationship with his hair. It’s not overwrought in dealing with Blaine’s insecurities but it doesn’t  make him the butt of a joke either. And Mercedes is fantastic, as is  Kurt’s brief little interaction with Finn.

@klaineanummel’s ”The Golden Trio

“Trick-or-treat,” Mercedes says, and Kurt holds out his bag, smiling a boy-ish smile.

The man looks them over, a smile appearing on his face. “You kids look  incredible,” he says, managing to get his cuff-links on. “Can you two  give me a moment? I just need to – Pam!” he calls back into the house.  “Pam, get Blaine and the camera!”

Mercedes and Kurt share a worried glance. This man hasn’t even given them any candy, and he wants to take a picture of them?

A slightly older woman appears next to him in a beautiful cocktail dress.  “Oh my goodness, isn’t this just the biggest coincidence!” she says.  “Would you two be okay if we took a picture of you with our son? It’s  just… Oh, you’ll see.”

This is a sweet little alternative meeting fic set during Halloween where  Mercedes, Kurt, and Blaine are all dressed up as Harry Potter  characters. It’s so satisfying. If I were an artist, I’d create fanart  for this in a heartbeat and I

know exactly what it would look like. Alas, the best I can offer is adoration.

@black-john-lennon ”Sincerest Form of Flattery


“Violet, what should Papa make for you this year? Pick something and I’ll make it for you in less horrid, synthetic fabric.”

“Daddy!”

Kurt laughs, “Oh sweetie, your Daddy is a very talented man, but he can’t sew to save his life.”

“Be Daddy!”

This is another Halloween fic (I’m just now discovering that I have a soft  spot for stories that involve costumes) that’s picture-perfect and  deserves fanart - this time, with Kurt and Blaine’s daughter dressing up as one of her dads. The ending melts my heart.


@47mel47’s ”WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?

Again, I will go into further detail in my full review (like the magnificence  that is Anderson’s facial expressions and that blistering snark that  edges Hummel’s most biting lines) but I just needed to share this now,  because I need people to know about this show and to know about these  two men.

I love it when fics play with media in storytelling, and this particular  take on a theatre review of Kurt and Blaine’s production of "Who’s  Afraid of Viriginia Woolf” delivers these little details that give a  wonderful sense of what Kurt and Blaine’s performances must be like.

anonymous asked:

I sent an ask a few days ago looking for a fic but I wouldn't be surprised if tumblr ate it. It's a fic where Kurt is a cheerio and Blaine is either a nerd or maybe just in glee but he's new and always stares at kurt. Kurt ends up giving him a bj sorta forced to get Blaine to leave him alone already. Kurt ends up sorta liking Blaine so he asks them to be fuck buddies in secret. There's no burt/carole/Finn family just burt/kurt.

Afraid To Fall by Larry_Klaine_Stylinson

When Blaine Anderson’s father loses all of their money, they’re forced to relocate from their expensive house in Westerville, where Blaine has been attending Dalton Academy, to Lima, where Blaine will be attending William McKinley High School. And he couldn’t be less excited. Until he notices an extremely attractive Cheerio, named Kurt Hummel, who he’s determined to get to know.

THIS IS NOT HATE.

To the Finchel shippers out there saying Rachel should have ended up alone and always remembering Finn. NO.
That is not healthy, yes I am a massive St Berry shipper but even Rachel ending up with Sam would have been cool.
Rachel should not spend the rest of her life mourning her high school boyfriend, he was her first love yes but when your spouse dies you don’t spend the next 60 years mourning them and never moving on. It’s not healthy. Rachel moved on, she married her equal in Jesse, she became pregnant and won her ultimate dream - a Tony. She’s happy, which is what she should be. And yes she didn’t thank Finn in her speech, probably because she has moved on, Finn will always be a part of Rachel but as she got married and became pregnant, Finn will no longer be the biggest part of her.
this is not hate and it probably sounds harsh but it’s true, I loved Finn and Cory and I sobbed buckets when I heard he died and at the Quarterback episode, but Rachel had to move on as people do. Carol and Burt both moved on for love and so did Rachel, so if you can respect them, respect her.
