"Kurt!" Blaine says the moment Kurt picks up. "Kurt, you won’t believe it."
"You won?" Kurt demands excitedly. "Oh my God you guys-"
"Well," Blaine’s voice is sheepish. "Not…not exactly."
"Oh. Oh. Oh, honey,” Kurt says, voice soft and hating Vogue, NYADA and the diner in equal measure for keeping him from being there with Blaine right now. “I’m so sorry.”
"I am too. We came in second."
"That’s still good!"
"It’s not a win," Blaine says, "And I mean…it’s…"
"I know," Kurt whispers.
"I know you know. And I appreciate that you know." thank you for knowing me goes unspoken and it makes Kurt feel warm and fuzzy inside, “But that’s not why I called you. Kurt: you’ll never guess who one of the judges is.”
"Total way. The founder of Prancercise is right here. In front of me. Kurt I am literally two feet away from her."
"I’m so jealous!" Kurt hisses. "Oh my God, Blaine, she is already better than all the judges we ever had combined."
"Shit, Kurt," Blaine says, voice going a little high, "Kurt she’s walking up to me I’m going to- hi, Ms. Rohrback."
Kurt bites his lip as he hears the muffled conversation through the phone (You guys were just wonderful on stage there/Oh thank you very much) and hates everything even more for keeping him away.
"I’m actually a huge fan, Ms. Rohrback. My fiance and I have tried Prancercise and have plans to incorporate it into our daily schedules once I move to New York."
"We’re both big fans. In fact…would you mind terribly….I have him on the phone."
Kurt’s breath catches as the sound of the phone being passed over reaches his ears and then a joyful “Hello!” is right in his ear. He vaguely hears Blaine whisper his name and then Joanna Rohrback is actually saying, “Hello, Kurt! Your fiance is just wonderful and I’m happy you’re both such big fans. Good luck with your Prancercising. As long as you believe in yourselves, you’ll be able to accomplish it.”
"Thank you Ms. Rohrback," Kurt breathes.
He hears the phone passed back over and one final compliment before Blaine’s voice is back in his ear. “Kurt. Kurt.”
"Oh my God I know!" Kurt exclaims. "Oh, Blaine."
"This was definitely worth the trip out here," and Kurt can hear the bitterness in his voice.
"Do you want to talk about it?"
"Not yet. Maybe when I get home. I don’t want to bring anyone else down more, you know?"
"Of course I do, dutiful leader," Kurt teases gently. "I love you. So much. My future husband to be."
"And that," Blaine says and Kurt can see him smiling even though he is miles and states away, "Is better than any trophy."
Blaine and I are like an old married couple. A fabulous old married couple.

Warnings: A blink-and-you’ll miss it reference to Finn Hudson.
Summary: Burt Hummel struggles with caterers, in-laws and the idea of letting go when his son comes home for spring break with something extra in tow — a fiancé. Inspired by the 1950 film, Father of the Bride, and its 1991 remake.
I want to say something about weddings.
I used to think they were simple. Boy meets girl. Boy falls for girl. He buys a ring. She buys a dress. They say, “I do.” They have babies. Their babies have babies, and so-on and on.
But I was wrong.
That’s called getting married. A wedding’s something else entirely.
I’ve just been through one.
Not mine, my son’s — Kurt Hummel-Anderson. That’s his married name — Anderson.
I’ll be honest with you. When I bought this house 10 years ago, it probably cost less than this event in which Kurt Hummel became Kurt Hummel-Anderson.
My wife Carole tells me that some day I’ll look back on this day with affection and nostalgia.
I hope so.
This is my office read, and let me tell you—I’m four chapters in, and it’s already up there with my all-time favourites. The way that Girlie is handling the entire matter of gay marriage so sensitively is note perfect. I’m relating to this story on a truly personal level, and as a gay gal in a fandom of two gay guys… Well, for me, it’s rare. Loving this.
Sometimes you ship characters because you want them to fuck against a wall
Sometimes you ship characters because you want them to get married and be together forever
The true OTP is both
There comes a point in everyone’s life where they just need to face facts and realize something isn’t going to happen.
And for Kurt, that is Blaine ever having feelings for him that go beyond friendship.
And it’s fine, really. Blaine doesn’t owe him anything….
BLAINE WASN’T JEALOUS
HE WAS POSSESSIVE OMG
Ok but the fact the whole episode is about fighting and childishness and Klaine are the ones playing peace-makers and trying to make everything better
