Ohhhh, this is incredible - the gifset, and the fic.
do you realize it’s no longer if klaine gets married
now it’s when klaine gets married
Blaine + being artsy-craftsy
Just how long has blaine been making perfectly well crafted things?
I have been thinking so much about this. Like, he and Kurt are both astoundingly creative. They aren’t just brilliant performers, they also make beautiful art with their own two hands. Kurt has his costumes and clothing and bedazzled tiny coffins, and Blaine has his oragami and scrapbooks and puppets. I can see them both sitting at home on a cozy winter night in the not-too-distant future, wind howling outside and fire crackling in the hearth while they both work contentedly in their own corners of their shared craft room, piled high with buttons and beads and felt and organza and twelve kinds of glue. And every now and again they catch one another’s eye and share soft smiles, or one of them gets up to stretch his legs and admire the other’s progress, and now and again one of them will fall asleep in the middle of the project and the other will come and rub his back and kiss his temple and murmur soothingly until his husband gets up to stumble sleepily to bed, glitter and little bits of fabric stuck to the side of his face.
Their kids are going to have so much fun, I can’t even fucking HANDLE it.
First of all, I love how Kurt says that line.
Secondly, part of what I love about the engagement storyline for these two is that there’s no underlying tension here about whether Blaine having doubts will break them up. There’s no question about whether or not they’re going to be together. The tension, such as it is, is real life. It’s how they’re going to manage things. It’s what’s the right choice for Blaine and how should they deal with that, not whether it’s going to rip them apart if Blaine doesn’t go to NYADA.
They’re together. They’re a unit. The rest is just the details of life.
It’s what mature couples go through. It’s real and sometimes hard, though not so much in this moment for these two. It’s learning to navigate life as a pair, knowing the other’s strengths and weaknesses, leaning on someone who loves you, and finding yourselves stronger for it.
A lot of stories end when the couple gets together, but that’s only the beginning. I’m so excited that Kurt and Blaine are engaged, and not just because there will be a wedding at some point, one assumes. It’s because we’re getting to watch them have their happily ever after and bit by bit figure out what that is.
this one line. its just such a sweet, perfect thing to say to someone. its not empty promises, its not grand star-eyed idealism, its not even romantic platitudes. its just the most honest assurance you can give someone who’s scared. to tell someone that you can’t make it happen for them, that you can’t climb their mountain, but that you’ll always be there to catch them if they fall. just. how perfect is that?
blaine said it himself - kurt is his anchor.
