me at an expensive 5-star restaurant: i’ll have the chicken tenders
Blaine has an early birthday gift for Kurt that just can’t wait. ao3
a/n: 5x11 reaction; there’s a lot of Finn mention/remembrance here, so heads up for that.
"I can’t believe you still haven’t told me what songs you guys competed with," Kurt says, looking pointedly at Blaine on his laptop’s screen. "They’re not even on the show choir blogs, apparently they’re only uploading the winning performances now."
"In time, in time," Blaine says distractedly. He’s not looking at Kurt; it seems like he’s staring at his keyboard. "Did you get anything in the mail today?"
"I don’t know, I haven’t checked. Should I check?"
"Yeah, I think you should."
this was supposed to be just a little mini-fic or even just a summary of a fic but hazelandglasz prompted “Truth or Dare” and the whole thing plopped into my head, and I couldn’t stop typing. So…
"You really don’t think I’ll do it?" Blaine raises his eyebrow, already hitching himself up on his elbows.
"We’re on the lawn of your grandmother’s country club, Blaine," Kurt rolls to his back, trying to figure out how high he’ll have to lift his head to finish drinking this glass of wine without spilling it down his neck. "With *your* family. I’m pretty sure I can safely say you won’t do it. So, just pick "truth" and let’s get on with it."
Blaine narrows his eyes, pursing his lips as he thinks. He tosses down the flower stem he’s been shredding and pulls loose his tie. He starts unbuckling his belt.
"You don’t think I’ll fucking do it?" He kicks off his boatshoes, challenging Kurt.
"I don’t think you’ll fucking do it. Your aunt Edna is right over there, and Uncle Charles and Tante Caroline and The Hellion Twins. I think that’s the rest of your grandmother’s bridge club that just arrived."
"Is that a dare?" Blaine’s hands hover at his shirt hemline.
reaction fic, which is actually AU, but based off of “show choir blogs” line in 5x11 uwu
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.
I wonder what kind of stuff is written about Blaine on the Show Choir blogs.
"Blaine Devon Anderson: sex on a stick and sings like a dream."
"Don’t let his handsome looks, 1950s style, and is sweet charm fool you. He was once leader of the Dalton Warblers as a sophomore, which is unheard of at that school. He is also deemed what many call "the new Rachel", referring to Rachel Berry, who is on her way to becoming a Broadway lead before she even turns 20. He is ruthless, strategic, and pays attention to every detail. He does his homework, knowing everything about everyone in every show choir in the country. Let’s not overlook his versatile voice, in which he can masterfully sing songs ranging from mainstream pop to classical Broadway. His falsetto is his main weapon, and his charisma while performing is unmatched, bringing audience members to their feet with one note and one smile."
Eyes up Kurt.
LOL i was waiting for this.
