lucky lindy

my opinion on twenty one pilots 

  1. amelia earhart - first woman to fly across the atlantic ocean solo, i mean if that’s not badass what is 
  2. charles lindbergh - apparently his nicknames were slim, lucky lindy, and the lone eagle i guess that’s cool 
  3. bessie coleman - first black woman and first native american woman to hold a pilot’s license, also badass, a cool gal 
  4. jacqueline cochran - apparently one of the most gifted racing pilots of her generations, that’s rad
  5. bob hoover - it doesn’t say much about him but he’s wearing a cool hat in his photo, i approve
  6. louis bleriot - this dude has a big mustache
  7. buzz aldrin - you know him, you love him, good ol’ buzz
  8. steve fossett - first person to fly non-stop around the world in a balloon, i commend him 
  9. chelsey sullenburger - a true icon of our generation
  10. jeane yeager - the first non-stop, non-refueled flight around the world in the rutan voyager aircraft apparently? that’s sweet
  11. glenn curtiss - apparently he started as a bicycle racer, and was like you know what, let’s try out planes. this dude has ambition and i can respect that 
  12. hanna reitsch - germany’s most famous test pilot and a nazi, not cool
  13. dick rutan - apparently flew the same flight with jeane yeager yet the plane was named after him, rude. don’t like him and his name seems made up
  14. harriet quimby - first woman to gain a pilot’s license in the us and again, has a cool hat. idk what it is but pilot’s sure do like their hats 
  15. antoine de saint-exupéry - a rich french dude, i know nothing else about him
  16. dogulas bader - idk but he’s smoking a pipe in photo tho so obvious he’s going for some kind of look 
  17. wiley post - first pilot to fly around the world, like one day he just decided to do it, i mean good job i guess but i would not do that 
  18. howard hughes - a business man and owner of hughes aircraft company? apparently he had a lot of money?
  19. richard e. byrd - no personal feelings on this guy from the 5 seconds i spend researching the topic 
  20. raymonde de loche - she seems cool i like her
  21. amy johnson - john travolta was before her in google but i’m not putting him on this list, she’s got the typical aviator glasses on in the photo and seems cool. i like her

and thus concludes my opinion on twenty one pilots

Fic: 14 Seasonally Inappropriate Serenades (14/14) - COMPLETE

Just because Blaine missed his chance to serenade Kurt on their first Valentine’s Day as friends doesn’t mean there aren’t other occasions now that they’re boyfriends. PG-13.  

14/14 – I Will (Read on AO3 here)

It takes some convincing. The Warblers don’t have to greatest track record with airports after the Lucky Lindy fiasco. Eventually, however, they agree because Blaine asks. And because he promises they’ll stay safely indoors and far away from the tarmac.

They wait until the New Directions’ plane lands in the Columbus airport and the passengers all make it off to begin their choral rendition of a Beatles song. They start singing as they make their descent on the dual escalators down to baggage claim. They fill the tiny airport with sound. The weary looking show choir pawing through luggage on the conveyor belt takes them in. Recognition, exasperation, and encouragement show on different faces. Kurt perks up from across the room. He cranes his neck, looking for Blaine among his flock.

Blaine is harder to spot without the uniform, and just one of many voices on the melody. The Warblers dress in street clothes, mingling with the crowd at large, making it seem as if the whole airport is raising voices in song. (Street clothes also took some convincing, until Blaine framed it as a way to combat their superstitions of performance disasters at airports. They’re just friends bringing voice to Blaine’s hopes and wishing them well now, not the competition.)

Love you forever and forever / Love you with all my heart / Love you whenever we’re together / Love you when we’re apart…”

Loving Kurt is all the more obvious upon seeing him again. It’s the first thought that crosses Blaine’s mind. Soon he’s going to let those words slip out. He thinks about it so often, and he’s decided he won’t hold back.

Blaine steps onto the conveyor belt winding slowly through baggage claim and bringing him to Kurt like a special delivery. “And when at last I find you / Your song will fill the air / Sing it loud so I can hear you / Make it easy to be near you …

The look on Kurt’s face when he spots Blaine is one Blaine will hold onto.  

Oh, you know I will / I will.” 

The song reaches its final notes by the time Blaine reaches Kurt.

Rather than giving a speech, Blaine settles on a simple, unadorned, “Welcome home.”

Kurt holds out his hand to help Blaine down.

Blaine feels oddly calm. Not desperate, not unsure, not scrambling to be understood. The low level of nerves about ruining everything between them because he doesn’t know what he’s doing fades away. “Do you want to catch up over a cup of coffee with me?”

Kurt gives a coy smile full of promise. “Okay.”
