and there’s about 8 more under it.
I’m only answering this one more time today.
The story of Darren’s Ring:
Back in July 2011 when Darren did that livestream with Mark and Ashley, he wore a green ring. Every single time Chris was mentioned, he’d play with the ring or spin it or something.
So my friend Sol and I came up with the headcanon that Chris gave Darren that ring.
In May, about a week before Chris’ birthday, I wrote a Crisscolfer fic where Darren gave Chris a black bracelet as a birthday gift because it kinda resembled the beaded one that Darren used to wear. A few days later, on the Glee Live show on Chris’ birthday, Chris was wearing a black bracelet. So again, Sol and I headcanoned that not only did I ~predict the future, but that Darren gave it to Chris.
So ever since then, for Sol and I, one of our crisscolfer tags is otp: bracelet and ring and whenever we see Darren wearing the ring, we freak out.
So what started out as a joke between the two of us has ballooned into this huge thing and well, yeah.
And that, boys and girls, is the significance behind the ring Darren almost always wears. (*NOTE: Same could be said for the thick silver one he wears almost all the time too)
