Kurt recognizes him the moment he steps into the Dalton choir room.
Blaine Anderson has been gaining a lot of chatter on the show choir blogs that Kurt follows. It keeps him up to date on all the competition. Rachel insisted that she didn’t have the time, but Kurt did.
In the end, Kurt kind of likes following the blogs. He talks to a few people on there and they exchange tips (Kurt makes sure they are people out of the tri-state area, so they can’t possibly be competing against them in Sectionals).
Mostly, it’s a way to high light the biggest competition in the show choir world. New Directions isn’t really big. Rachel is a threat, apparently, but they’re too misfit to do much good.
5x11 reaction fic. Angst.
Blaine is stuck in an emotional spiral after losing Nationals. Kurt is there to help him weather the storm.
Trigger warnings: mentions of canonical character death.
Heavy angst, but also a good dosing of hurt/comfort. Fluffier things to come soon if you’d prefer to wait it out.
It had been exactly sixteen hours since they’d lost Nationals (lost) and Blaine couldn’t sleep.
He couldn’t even move from where he was frozen on the couch in his living room, gazing listlessly at the scrapbook that he’d compiled to celebrate his senior year, one hand pressed wordlessly against one of the last blank pages.
I have really enjoyed Glee in ways that I didn’t expect I would since it’s come back from hiatus. I think the writing in terms of recovery from the loss of Cory/Finn has finally stabilized—they know where they are going, at least. That maturity and a sense of moving on was especially clear tonight. I can’t wait to watch the graduates start the next leg of their journeys.
