I draw and I write about Klaine.
I take prompts for drabbles, especially if based on the stories and verses I've written.
Aww, thank you! Thank you!
Playing With Fire took a lot out of me, because I put a lot of myself and my experiences into it (mainly regarding death or near-death), and I’m very very proud of it and some of its moments. But it took so much that I decided I’d focus on smaller fluffier tics from then on: hence the constant of three chapters for every other I’ve written since then.
JSYK, I’m not trying to diss my own work, but - although it has a few good moments - Sexy isn’t up to par with the rest of my fics (except maybe Summer of Clichés). I love it because it was my first multichaptered fic and my first “big” venture into the Klaine fandom, so in that respect i owe it a lot - but it’s not without its flaws and… well, you get what I’m saying. However: read it! And tell me about it! :)
THIS! I don’t see Burt doing that in canon. I don’t even see him being too restrictive over closed doors etc given that it’s the only safe place for the boys.
Exactly. I mean, maybe it’s just me and my apparently progressive household, but to be that restrictive is just smtg I can’t imagine Burt being. The whole conversation he gave Kurt in Sexy was about telling him he had the power to say no or yes whenever and with whomever he felt comfortable doing so; and taking into account the nature of Klaine’s relationship from the very start Burt would have never opposed them being physical with each other. He would’ve much sooner offered them the safe place they needed to be together without fear of anything.
if there’s a pet peeve i’ve developed towards klaine fics is when they have burt give Blaine “The Speech”, like Kurt is his daughter. it’s bad enough that society says girls’ virtue needs to be protected by their fathers because god forbid they make a decision for themselves about their sexuality - but to go even further and project that onto a boy…? because he’s gay and slightly more effeminate than his boyfriend? Why doesn’t Kurt ever get to hear that same speech? Is his virtue more important than Blaine’s? Or is it that he’s not as capablee of making such decisions by himself like Blaine is?
(who are we kidding here? this is just a classic case of treating Blaine like the Man and Kurt like the Woman in that relationship, and that’s just… no.)
That Burt gives Kurt a talk about safe sex and intimacy, that’s great! That he treats Blaine like a threat and dismisses the fact that Kurt has the ability to consent… no. just no.
and i felt the samchel in the episode, and although i hope they wait until the next season for rachel to go into dating again, I could dig it. especially since Sam was introduced as someone with a lot in common to Finn, but different enough not to be a replacement toy.
So is it canon yet that Blaine is pretty much rich? i mean, he’s a highschooler that can afford to give a piano as a thank-you gift for his friends, shortly after buying an engagement ring and flying to New York. Also, his clothes.
You don’t think he’s musical theater material…?
His voice isn’t exactly musical theatre, like Rachel’s or even Kurt’s. He’s much more of a pop singer, and he’s rearranged songs to acoustic versions before, so studying composition and songwriting wouldn’t be bad fit for him at all. He’s got plenty of charisma and stage presence - more than any other kid in that show, except maybe Rachel, but we’d be crazy to think his vocals can compete with actual big broadway voices, and he usually goes for the pop song much more than he goes for the show tunes - again, unlike Rachel and Kurt.
But then again, if Adam is in that school, so should Blaine - specially taking into account his extra-curriculars, having been lead-warbler, won Nationals with ND, and played Tony in WST. And it’s not like he can’t sing show tunes if asked, especially if the songs are on a more contemporary register. (NPH doesn’t have a booming voice either, and yet he does Broadway)
So, I don’t think Blaine should NOT get into NYADA - I think he’s one of the most qualified characters to get into it. I just think that he would be better off elsewhere.
