Hooooly shit, I completely forgot I wrote that.
But I totally did.
It’s the summer before their junior year in college and Blaine still...
So now I’m wondering if Kurt is going to go all The Brave One on New York City’s ass.
i’m pretty sure blaine’s mom sent him that soda machine. sometimes she wakes up in the middle of the night desperately afraid of what...
Rachel is Frank.
Kurt is Claire.
Blaine is Zoe or Meechum.
Puck is Peter Russo.
Quinn is Stamper
Mercedes is Jackie.
Will is the president...
When Sue mentions the world’s largest basket (Longaberger Basket Company HQ in Newark, OH), I was embarrassingly excited because for a lot of years, Longaberger baskets were seriously my jam. And “Hang on Sloopy” is goddam catchy. There’s a lot of stuff that’s dumb about Ohio, but not those two things.
Sue’s romantic interlude with the Chris Parnell character was the perfect amounts of weird and sweet, and I loved every second of it. I’m so used to seeing Parnell as Dr. Leo Spaceman (30 Rock) or Fred Shay (Suburgatory) that seeing him play a normal was a pleasant surprise.
Every time they show a clip of Finn, I think I’m passed the teary stage but I’m not.
Not much else—loved the ultimately failed attempts to keep Rachel in a bubble of support and love before opening night, the gang partying all night after (and OF COURSE, our Blaine would know of the perfect place to go!), and the lovely anachronistic feeling of them going to get the physical paper to read the Times review.
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.
