Summary: Blaine Anderson’s plans of a life spent performing were
derailed in his senior year, and he had to compromise on everything
he’d dreamed of - except love. Kurt Hummel, haughty and aloof
Broadway darling, was forced to come back to Ohio where there was
nothing left for him but painful memories - until he noticed a pair of
fine eyes.(Pride & Prejudice inspired, but set in present day)
I can’t believe I forgot to rec this back in January when it finished? Well, better late than never. My love for historical AUs is well known, and I have no clue how many P&P AUs I’ve read the last couple of years, but this one stands out.
First of all, it’s set in present time, and secondly, more importantly, Kurt is Mr. Darcy! It fits his (s4-6) character so well, I can’t believe there are not more stories with him in that role. He is the perfect stiff-upper-lip Darcy-ish type, and it works swell set in modern times as well. A must read!
Summary: Blaine missed his brother Cooper Anderson. He didn’t expect to see Neal Caffrey in the park.
Hey :) I absolutely love
your work!! I was wondering if you could do a Glee/White Collar crosssover
where Cooper Anderson is actually Neal Caffrey and Blaine finds out? Please?? I
would love you forever!!! xxx1
Hey Baby Brother,
I so, so wish I could be
there for your first day of middle school. It’s crazy to think of how grown up
you are now! It’s like just yesterday you were smashing your bananas onto
the table and spilling juice. I’m still doing well! I’m taking acting classes
in LA and they’re awesome. I actually found a mentor who is teaching me to be a
High school! Wow! Sorry it
took me so long to write, work’s been like a prison. I’ve heard you joined
choir as well. I always knew you were going to be an amazing performer. The
clips I’ve seen just blew my mind. I can’t wait to finally see you live.
For once I’m actually glad
I’m not there. I want so badly to kill those bastards who hurt you. Don’t they
have any idea how special and amazing you are? I heard about why they did it
and I don’t care. Blaine, you’re my brother and I love you no matter who you
love. I have some friends who can watch out for you and I promise that no one
will ever hurt you again.
Sometimes when life got a
little too much, Blaine pulled out the box of letters. It scared him to think
of how little he remembered of his brother. Cooper was around for a few years
when he was younger before he just vanished one day.
For years he had been
angry at him and threw the letters into the box unopened. Then he finally read
them and realized how unhappy Cooper really was. He was happy traveling and
meeting people and he loved what he did. Sometimes there were stretches where
he didn’t have any contact with Cooper but then his brother always would check
Blaine hated that he
couldn’t respond but Cooper never left a return address. He figured that he was
moving around a lot for his job but it still hurt. He wanted to tell Cooper
everything. He wanted to tell him about Kurt and how he was back in public
school. He wanted to tell him about his plans for college and about nationals
in New York.
New York was everything he
ever dreamed of. The towering skyscrapers and crowds of people made him
feel right at home and he couldn’t help but grab onto Kurt’s hand tightly. This
was their future home, he felt almost giddy at the thought.
Mr. Schue let them have a
few hours to themselves, why he thought it would be a good idea to send a group
of teenagers out by themselves Blaine would never know, and he set out to
Central Park. It was beyond amazing to walk hand in hand through the park.
Blaine had always imagined
walking with his boyfriend through the snowy park bundled up in scarves and
coats. He imagined running through the fall leaves with Kurt, laughing. He
imagined how they would share ice cream in the summer.
When he looked at Kurt he
saw his soft smile and knew he was imagining the same thing.
“Aw Peter, now that’s not
fair,” a familiar voice, like one from a dream, made him freeze and Kurt looked
over at him curiously. “Like I would ever do that.”
“I don’t know,” another
man said, voice monotonous. “That sounds exactly like something you would
Blaine craned his neck to
try to see who was talking, his heart hammering in his chest. One man was
dressed neatly in a suit, his face rather severe and serious but his eyes
were warm. The other was dressed in an expensive looking three-piece suit
with a fedora, a wide grin on his face.
“Cooper,” he breathed then
forced himself to be a little louder. “Cooper!”
His smile froze on his
face and he turned towards the name, eyes widening. For a moment the brothers
just stared at each other and Kurt turned to him the same time the man, Peter,
did. Cooper sucked in a shaky breath, looking torn.
“Blaine?” He breathed and
it was like something snapped.
He hadn’t seen his brother
since he was a small child but it felt like no time had passed at all as he all
but launched himself into his arms. Cooper’s hat was knocked off and fell
to the ground but he wrapped his arms tightly around him and held him
“Look at you!” Cooper
grinned, eyes shining, as he pulled back. “You look just the same! Maybe a
bit taller but just the same.”
“So do you,” Blaine
laughed tearfully, still gripping his brother’s arms tightly.
“Care to introduce me to
your friend Neal?” Peter asked softly, brows furrowed. Kurt was hovering
nearby, looking equally confused.
“Neal?” Blaine asked and
“Um…this is my little
brother Blaine,” Cooper squeezed his shoulder. “And Neal is what everyone
calls me now but that’s not what’s really important. Blaine lives in Ohio and
is here because…”
“We have a show choir
competition. We made it to nationals!” Blaine beamed.
“Nationals Peter!” Cooper
bounced a little on his feet. “Blaine, Peter is my coworker.”
“Nice to meet you,” Peter
shook his hand but shot Cooper a quick look.
“And this is my boyfriend
Kurt,” Blaine nudged his shoulder a little and Kurt shook both of their
“Right,” Cooper clapped
his hands together. “What do you say I buy everyone lunch and we have a
nice long talk?”
As they walked to the
restaurant Blaine knew he had the widest smile on his face. Cooper looked
just the same as he did the last time he saw him but at the same time he
looked nothing like the boy who left Ohio. He had a confidence about him and
looked strong as they entered the restaurant.
“So, you have a brother?”
Peter asked as they sat.
“And you like in New
York?” Blaine raised an eyebrow as Cooper scrubbed his hands over his
“Okay, let me try to catch
everyone up. My real name is Cooper Anderson, not Neal Caffrey. I left Ohio
when I was seventeen and Blaine was five because I just couldn’t stand it there
anymore,” he started softly. “I did really go to LA first but hitchhiked
to New York soon after. That’s when I changed my name; I wanted to be someone
else so badly. Then…God Blaine I hope you don’t think any less of me…I
started with petty theft. It just expanded from there and soon I was on the
FBI watch list.”
“The FBI?” Blaine breathed
and Cooper nodded, mouth in a firm line.
“I was arrested…by this
guy,” he nodded towards Peter. “On forgery and suspected for
“Suspected,” Peter huffed
“So, I made a deal with
the FBI and agreed to be their confidential informant to get out of
prison. I’m on an ankle monitor and I’m working off my sentence,” Cooper
shrugged. “I got caught and now I’m paying for it but I’m doing good. I’m
helping people and at the end of the day I feel like I’m making a difference.”
“You told me you were an
actor in LA,” Blaine said slowly and Peter let out a laugh.
“Well, you were always
following me around and looking at me like I was your hero,” Cooper gave him a
slightly crooked smile. “So I figured a movie star sounded better
than thief…alleged thief.”
“You’re my brother and I
love you,” Blaine’s voice came out a little choked. “I clung to all those
letters and I wanted to tell you everything about my life so bad.”
“And I can’t wait to hear
it!” Cooper grinned and looked between him and Kurt. “How long have you
been dating? Tell me everything. Kurt, this is when I tell you that if you
hurt my brother I have lot of connections in the FBI and they can make you
