I can’t help it, but klaine fight with bamboo rods is so funny. Darren and Chris are like dancing around each other on tiptoes too afraid to hit other hands or something. And their concentrated expression crack me up. “Love Is A Battlefield” is the best. :D
Klaine goggles? MOI?
Um, yeah. You could say that. I’m way more than a little partial towards them. I’ve done a terrible job of hiding that. Which is to say that I haven’t tried, not even a little.
If you feel something different? Rock on, you do you. We’re all entitled to watch the show in whatever ways we want, and we all bring our own goggles to the table - personal baggage, shipping preferences, whatever.
But I have a LOT of thoughts about Kurt and Blaine as of 5x16, and am tickled to have the excuse to write them down. Will this convince you that I’m “right” and you’re “wrong?” I’m sure not, and that’s really not the point. I’m gonna do me, you do you. Ship (or not) and let ship, man.
Under a cut because BOY did this get long. I HAVE SOME THOUGHTS is what I’m saying.
I absolutely adored this meta; the deep love of the characters and their relationship is so evident here, as is a nuanced understanding of their dynamic right now. My favorite bit: “Happily-ever-after has always been a myth. You do, in fact, need more than just Love, Love, Love. You need to work at it, too.”
Such a simple truth, but one that fundamentally challenges one of our biggest cultural myths. I love that we’re getting a warts-and-all fairytale; so much more satisfying (and interesting!) than the alternative.
Klaine isn’t a bad relationship. Yes, right now things seem really, really rough, but that’s a relationship. It takes work. Being in a relationship is fun like maybe half the time. The other half, it can really fucking suck. But it’s always worth it when you love someone, And they do love each other and want it to work out! So fighting, trying, talking, crying – it’s all good stuff. Calm down, Klainers.
I wrangled the ever so wonderful Jay into making sweet Sailor!Klaine flavored love biscuits with me for your viewing pleasure. It was the most fun I’ve had with a collab thusfar and I look forward to bullying her into doing it with me again in the near future.
Enjoy, my sweet little nutmuffins. ♥
TBH I love the new strong Kurt who is sucessful and confident in himself and I just wish that Blaine and him could find common ground to harmonize better again. It’s like Kurt said “I’d much rather [they’d] run this race together” and I’m sure they could take the city by storm. I would just love to see Klaine as a power couple!
