MARCH 2012: It is time.

Almost 2 years ago, I set out to explain why March 2012 was an overwhelmingly significant moment in the career arc of One Direction. I realized quickly that conveying the significance of the 31 days in March would be difficult without “a little context." 

You can read more of that "context” here: September 2011, October 2011, November 2011, December 2011, January 2012 and February 2012

March 2012 will be posted in 5 parts: 

  1. March 1-10
  2. March 11-17
  3. March 18-24
  4. March 25-31
  5. Post-Mortem

I hope this doesn’t disappoint. I hope it conveys just how frenetic this time was, both professionally and personally for Harry and Louis.

And I hope it sheds some light on why we are where we are right now.

Part 1: March 1-10

Case Study ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ Midnight

Very serious warning with this part.  There’s nothing that really happens in this section that would require a warning beyond the general one I’ve given, but things get very intense in this part of the story.  This was very hard to write, and I imagine it will be very hard to read.  Please, make sure you’re in a good place before you read it, and also, as always - this doesn’t reflect everyone’s experience.  

October 2010 ~ November 2010 ~ December 2010 ~ January 2011 ~ February 2011 ~ March 2011 ~ April 2011 ~ May 2011 ~ June 2011 ~ July 2011 ~ August 2011 ~ September 2011 ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ October 2011, Part 2 ~ October 2011, Part 3 ~ November 2011 ~ December 2011 ~ January 2012 ~ February 2012 ~ March 2012 ~ April 2012 ~ May 2012 ~ June 2012 ~ December 2016

Warning: These stories all revolve around an AU world where Kurt and Blaine both have serious mental health disorders and end up rooming together at a boarding school geared towards special education.  I work in mental health, so I’m familiar with this stuff and will try to be as accurate as possible, but please keep in mind that this is a work of fiction.  There will be some angsty parts and some happy parts and many parts that are in-between, and I don’t have a definitive plan in mind other than a happy ending.

Also, Kurt and Blaine are in the same grade here, both juniors at the start of the story.

This part is PG-13, 2478 words

October 2011, Part 1 ~ Midnight

Blaine loved classes, except the last few in the afternoon when his mind typically turned to Kurt, Kurt, Kurt because they hadn’t seen each other for so many hours.  It helped, though, that last period this year was English.  Blaine loved English, and books, and stories.  They had just finished Among the Hidden, which was really, really good except the parts that were scary and sad, and next they were going to read Walk Two Moons, which Blaine was really excited for because Kurt said it was one of his favorite books from middle school.

Only Blaine hadn’t been able to concentrate today, not as much as usual.  He was feeling jumpier, like he had to get out of his seat, and for some reason everything was bothering him.  He’d been a few minutes late for breakfast this morning because he got distracted in the shower, and then Kurt had snapped at him, and then he’d snapped back at Kurt, and they had barely talked at all during breakfast and that made Blaine sad and also a little angry too, because really why did Kurt always have to be so particular?  And then he must have been in a bad mood because of that, because he yelled at Brittany this morning when she kept going on and on about Santana and unicorns, and he’d made her cry which really sucked, and yeah, he maybe wasn’t having the greatest of days.

But now it was English class, and he kind of felt okay with everything that had happened.  Actually, he felt kind of amazing.  He kept thinking about all those kids in Among the Hidden and how they never got to go outside.  And that must really suck, because Blaine loved to be outside.  And what would they do all day, anyway?  They must read a lot.  Blaine loved to read.  If only he could give them that, give them something to read.

Case Study ~ December 2016 ~ Zigzag (Complete <3)

Well guys, here we are.  This part could probably use a little more revision, but I need to sleep now before work, so…

It has been such an honor to share this journey with all of you.  I can’t believe that this story actually came together this quickly, but it’s truly been a blessing, so… enjoy the epilogue!  Notes on the story, possibly additional drabbles (feel free to prompt, although I can’t 100% guarantee!) and the AO3 version will all most likely happen in near future :-)

Side Note: I told many of you that Blaine has intellectual disability.  That is what it’s called today, but when Blaine was diagnosed we were operating under a different diagnostic manual, and this story reflects that accordingly by using the multi-axial system and the term “mental retardation”.

Psychosocial Assessment Summary:

Kurt Hummel is a 16-year old boy who presents to Dalton roughly six months following the death of his father and only remaining biological parent.  He comes here voluntarily and with the blessing of his step-family, Carole and Finn Hudson, who appear sincerely supportive.

Kurt stared at his image in the mirror, straightening his tie, fiddling with the cuff links on his tux.  He found it strange that he didn’t feel nervous—at least not about the commitment he was about to make.  Lingering in the back of his mind was a great deal of anxiety about the ceremony and the music and the reception going smoothly, exactly as planned, but Kurt was doing his best to ignore it.  Those things weren’t what today was about, after all.

Today was about them: about Kurt and Blaine and everything they had somehow, miraculously built together.

anonymous asked:

what was the situation back then when aimh was tweeted? was elounor already as heavily pushed? how was the public larry interaction?

Everything you really need to know can be found in Kati’s September and October 2011 timelines. And more context here: X X In short, Eleanor publicly came into the picture in September 2011 but Harry and Louis were still enjoying their glass closet. Then Eleanor and Louis had their first “casual” pap photoshoot through the park on Oct 1 and Louis tweeted AIMH on Oct 2. Elouno got pushed more heavily soon after that. I think Louis knew what was coming down the pipeline so AIMH was kind of like his farewell message to their glassy beardless closet. I also feel like that tweet was one of the last things he did before giving up control over his twitter account. So AIMH is kind of bittersweet for a lot of reasons.

Broadway Glindas - Chandra Lee Schwartz

What is your favourite Glinda costume and why?
“My favourite Glinda costume is the top of Act 2, the engagement costume. It’s a two piece costume with one long sleeve and one tank top sleeve, and then I get to wear this little hat and this beautiful skirt with a bustle. It’s so elegant and beautiful. It’s not the most comfortable, it’s very constricting like most of my costumes are, but I think it is the most beautiful costume.”

September 2011 ~ Kindred

“Well, Kurt,” Mrs. Faber began, sitting prim and proper, legs crossed, in her seat.  Kurt liked that she dressed well, today in a classy apple-red cardigan with beading around the neckline paired with a simple, knee-length black skirt.  “I know last week we were beginning to discuss your relationship with your father, figure out where those sparks of your condition might have started.  Have you thought about it like I asked?  Do you have any insight?”

Kurt stared at her shoes: black pumps with 1-inch heels, strapped and fastened with black heart-shaped beads.  “I have something I’d like to talk about,” he said.  “If that’s alright?”

He didn’t have to look at her face to know she was surprised.  “Of course!” she said, not even trying to mask her excitement.  “Of course, we can talk about anything you like.  Please.”

“I’d like to talk about Blaine.  I mean—things have been good.  But it seems I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock.”

Just a crazy thought I had…

The V Day video was accidentally unprivated in either September or October of 2011.

There was quite a hefty explosion of freak outs and feels, but we were only a fandom of around 200,000/300,000 and only a minority of us were actually on Tumblr.

So just imagine, with millions of followers, and the majority of them being on Tumblr, what would happen if the video was uncovered today.

UTTER. FUCKING. CHAOS.

Kurt smoothed the lapels of his suit, took a deep breath, and walked through the doorway.  The little bell jingled, assuring that the pretty, middle-aged woman standing behind the counter took notice of him right away.  “Hello,” she said, offering him a smile.  “Welcome to the Cheesecake Boutique.  Is there something I can help you with?”

He straightened his posture, reached down deep for his confidence, and said—“Yes, actually.  My name is Kurt Hummel, and I’m here to convince you to hire me.”

So here it is a little late, friends - technically the last chapter of this fic, as tomorrow (aka Day 24 because I’m a day behind) will be more of an epilogue… and also a prequel, in a sense.

Graduation day was definitely the best day of Blaine’s life… except for maybe the day that Kurt had agreed to date him, or the day when Kurt had first said I love you, or that day when Kurt…

Okay, maybe it’s wasn’t the best.  But it was one of his very favorite days all the same.

August 2011 ~ Legacy

It was the last weekend of break and Kurt was here again for like the fourth time this summer, in Blaine’s house in his room, actually liking Blaine’s family who liked him back, and things were pretty much perfect. 

But best of all was why Kurt was here—not just because it really, really sucked when they didn’t see each other, but also because it was Blaine’s birthday!  His eighteenth birthday, which meant not only cake and ice cream and presents and singing and Kurt which were pretty much all of Blaine’s very favorite things, but also that he was a man now.  And Mama and Daddy knew he was a man now, too, they even said so when they gave Blaine a pocket watch that had belonged to his grandfather, calling it a legacy even though Blaine actually didn’t know what a legacy was.  He didn’t really care, though.  Daddy had said, “A man needs a pocket watch,” and Blaine had beamed so hard it made his face hurt.

He was grown-up.  He’d been waiting his entire life to be grown-up, practically.

October 2011, Part 3 ~ Occasion

Blaine was discharged six days before Halloween.  Kurt was there with him for the ride home, so Blaine spent it holding Kurt’s hand while Kurt talked on and on and on about the costumes he had sewed for them and the new schedule he had made for them and the fish he’d gotten for Blaine so he’d have something to take care of.

Blaine knew he wasn’t quite right, not yet, maybe not for a long time.  He was better, yes, a little bit each day.  It was like waking up, slowly… but he was still so sleepy.

Kurt wasn’t right either.  He was different.  He smiled more but not as bright.  He talked more.  He was trying hard, and Blaine knew it was for him, and he loved Kurt…but he didn’t know if he could try, not as hard, not yet.  He wanted to.

It was a start.

Blaine watched them suspiciously: four grown-ups in Ms. Genna’s office, sitting around in a circle and chattering about something to do with him.

“Come on in, sweetheart.  Sit down,” Mama said when she noticed his face peeking through the crack of the door.

Obediently, Blaine did so, feeling a tiny bit frightened even though he didn’t know why.  He liked all of these people, trusted them—Mama and Daddy and Ms. Genna and Mrs. Applewood.  He shouldn’t be scared.

He wished Kurt was here to hold his hand.

Every minute detail was in place.  They had an entire day cleared and Blaine’s house to themselves, as his parents had flown out to L.A. to help settle Cooper in his new home after the holidays.  Kurt had all the supplies they would need, carefully researched and ordered discreetly.  They had talked and talked and talked the subject to death, making sure they both understood everything and wanted the same things.  They had already seen each other naked—on a few occasions now—and had made each other come.  They were ready.  Kurt was ready.

So why did he feel so nervous?

November 2011 ~ Please

Somehow, amidst their fading darkness, they began to fall into sync.

Kurt did consider medication, mostly to please Blaine.  He even talked it over with his therapist, but in the end he decided against it.  Maybe in the future, if things got worse and stayed that way… but he was managing for now, fighting his way through.

Blaine was fighting with him.

Kurt suspected that maybe at first, Blaine had gone along with the whole schedule thing because he was Blaine and that’s what he did, a people-pleaser to his very core.  Eventually he probably did it more explicitly to please Kurt, because he loved Kurt for some crazy, unfathomable reason.  And now—now Blaine did it because it was good for him, and he enjoyed it.  It was good for both of them.

Kurt’s days went like this:

July 2011 ~ Jukebox

Their home had so many things that were put there just for Blaine—the baby grand piano he had struggled to learn to play.  The old jukebox, loaded with classics from the fifties and sixties.  The “play corner” they put together for him when he was little, which he’d made use of for far longer than most children would.  It hadn’t held his interest for a few years now, but they hadn’t taken it down.

If she had her way, they never would.

Pamela had known her son would be special from the moment she learned of his existence.  Henry had been content with only Cooper, and she’d had to be crafty to conceive again.  When it finally happened, she was thirty-eight and her son was eleven; her husband was angry, but she wouldn’t hear a word against her child.  Blaine had been her treasure, her precious miracle, from the very start.

The fact that he’d been born a little more special than she’d anticipated hadn’t changed that.  In fact, a part of her rejoiced in the knowledge that this boy would surely never leave her, never grow up.

Warning: These stories all revolve around an AU world where Kurt and Blaine both have serious mental health disorders and end up rooming together at a boarding school geared towards special education.  I work in mental health, so I’m familiar with this stuff and will try to be as accurate as possible, but please keep in mind that this is a work of fiction.  There will be some angsty parts and some happy parts and many parts that are in-between, and I don’t have a definitive plan in mind other than a happy ending.

Also, Kurt and Blaine are in the same grade here, both juniors.

Kurt knew it would happen eventually, because as good as Blaine was with the schedule, he wasn’t Kurt.  He didn’t understand the benefits of planning his time, didn’t need to do it like Kurt did.  So when Blaine burst into their room one day too-late, at precisely 3:33 when Kurt was studying—and why was that so hard to remember?—Kurt was resigned rather than surprised.

That didn’t stop the irritation, biting at his throat, itching at his tongue, demanding Kurt snap at him.

Kurt bit his lip instead and glared.  He glared at Blaine’s smile, and he glared at Blaine’s shoulder bag, tossed carelessly on his bed instead of hung on its hook where Blaine very well knew it belonged.  Of course, Blaine didn’t seem to notice the glaring.

“Kurt, Kurt, Kurt!” he said, with all the enthusiasm of a five-year-old on the morning of his birthday.  “Guess what guess what!  Sam and Jeff and Nick are going sledding tonight, Kurt, and Mr. Francis is taking a bunch of us, and they want us to come!”
