…well, all right.

Based on this post.

Blaine slung his bag over his shoulder, his eyes darting from the paper in his hand to the numbers on the wall next to doorways. He knew he should have paid more attention during his tour of NYADA, but Kurt had been texting him dirty things and he had been more than a little distracted…

He was finally feeling like he was heading in the right direction when suddenly a voice called out, “Hey, you!”

Blaine’s head jerked around reflexively, seeking whoever had yelled. A tall boy with shockingly red hair was grinning broadly at him, an equally tall boy with black hair standing awkwardly next to him. Blaine frowned. “Can I help you?”

“It’s you!” He smacked his friend’s arm. “Alex, I told you it was him!”

“I’m sorry, do I know you?” Blaine asked, his frown deepening.

“You’re totally that dude who cried his way through a Katy Perry song last year at Callbacks!”

Blaine was pretty sure his entire body was red as he sputtered an excuse and hurried away. As he sank into his seat in his first class, he prayed that wasn’t going to be what he was known for for the next four years.

Judging by the whispers that followed him for the rest of the day, he was probably wrong.

A boy I know once said that he is often challenged by people saying “you have no idea what you have done for me”; well Darren, I happen to like a challenge, so in celebration of your birthday, here is a little, very small portion of what I have done because of Darren…

  • Because of Darren, I joined a rag tag group called the Australian Darren Criss Street Team and found my closest friends
  • Because of Darren, I met a girl named Mary who stupidly agreed to come with me to LeakyCon where we saw AVPSY.
  • Because of Darren, I find myself doing things just because Darren did them.
  • Because of Darren, I found a friend named Darren and a friend named Claire who gave me the opportunity to experience Boston and so many other special things.
  • Because of Darren and his awesome attitude to treat anyone as a friend, I met Darren.
  • Because of Darren, I like to think he inspired my friends as well. Friends I would have never met without him and who are now going after their own dreams.
  • Because of Darren, I went as Kittenboy for Halloween and because of Darren other beautiful friends of mine knew what I was.
  • Because of Darren, I found Jen and Catherine, who I can’t imagine life without and who made my last week in America unforgettable.
  • Because of Darren I realised I can follow my dreams and do what I want even if that means that I travelled across the world for six months, met even more people and made memories I will treasure for the rest of my life. I found my perfectly stupid thing I want out of life and when I came back to Australia after the ride of my life to the very same people who love me for all my Darren crazy shenanigans, I realised that no matter how long you’re away from it… there’s always a way back.
  • and Because of Darren, I hope this is just the beginning and that I get to thank him many more times for many more adventure as the years roll by.

 Darren, from underneath the stairs to your birthday today, from teenage dream to teenage dream, thank you for creating mine.

You see… Harry Potter, he helped me once. He taught me that it’s okay to let go. Let go of my hate. Care about people. Because of him I have a new family. Guess that is kind of what Harry Potter is all about. But there comes a time when you have to let even Harry Potter go. And that’s okay… okay is wonderful.

Have you already answered who proposes to who in the A&L verse? And do they stay in NYC? If these are answered in future chapters, feel free to disregard. xoxo

Kurt proposes to Blaine - it’s an echo of something that’s coming up in a later chapter, so I won’t ruin that for you : ) 

They do stay in NYC! In the far future (outside of the fic’s domain,) Blaine  winds up as a researcher and, later, a professor in Columbia’s Department of Psychology. (Though he does move between universities once or twice during his career.) I feel like the two of them could never move anywhere else - they just love the feel of the city too much. 

However, later on in life, they do take an interest in Italian culture, and eventually wind up spending a year there - they run columbia’s small student house for part of their study abroad program. (Kurt goes on a year long sabbatical for it, and falls in love with Italian fashion all over again!) and basically they’re the best house dads ever the end

So when I designed my booth for Urban Craft Uprising I had planned to use it for #RenegadeSeattle as well. For UCU I had a 5x10 booth and Renegade is a 4x8. Silly me for thinking that the orientation would be the same and allow for maximizing the short space. Instead all the 4x8 booths are stacked together with the font of the booth being the small measurement. I now have less than a week to figure out how to show as much of my work as possible in a 4 foot space. #creativeproblemsolving #process #makingthemostofit

I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places the things, that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

I'm sad to hear that the glee writers are no longer inspirational for you. I just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed your work! I hope to see whatever else inspires you to create new art!

I honestly feel like the writers give no shits about fandom. And Chris and Darren haven’t been super pro-Klaine lately either. So it just gets to the point of goooosh, why do I caaaaaare so much?!? I was gonna leave after The Break Up, but fandom got me to stick around and I’m so thankful for that! But there’s only so much negative energy one person can take I think, and I’m someone who thrives on positivity and love and it’s just difficult to feel lately is all. I hope ya’ll keep fighting the good fight though! Hands down, the most AMAZING fandom <3

Thank you so much <3 I appreciate the kind words!

Got a few compliments on the comic book edit I did of this #selfportrait, so I figured I’d put up a #bnw version of it. I’m down to 212 lbs from 267 lbs, so far. #comeon200 #weightloss #meltingaway #selfie #iphoneart #blackandwhite #me #craig #sexy #lol #lmao #justforfun #createeveryday #playing #living #trying #makingthemostofit #workingwithwhatihave #change #transformation #alchemy
