I know I’ve reblogged this several times but I just noticed the color of the pants Klaine is wearing. Blaine is wearing mustard; Kurt is wearing teal. Their colors.
Also, 2 things. 1) Those are the outfits from the promo shoot with the balloons, right? and 2) Kurt’s shirt is unbuttoned pretty low like there’s a danger of a nip slip here.
One of my favorite Blaine moments, ever.
People touching Blaine with love and good intentions, aka the best thing ever. This literally makes my heart sing every time I see it.
Thoughts about Kurt and mental illness and/or neuroatypical (the OCD, the weird thing Colfer does where he doesn't look at ppl's eyes, etc?)
I think Kurt is stressed out and neurologically atypical. I think like lots of neurologically atypical people he may also have anxiety because the way the world is structured can be confusing and stressful for us, and it’s pretty legit that we’re like super fucking anxious, because it’s like we make sense to ourselves and live in a world designed by martians for martians and everything is very very loud and not respectful of our environmental needs.
(Like, I have anxiety. It is absurd that this is a mental illness in that it is a perfectly reasonable response to an environment that is completely not appropriate for my needs. My anxiety while unpleasant and freaky for other people, is a totally reasonable response to what is an unreasonable situation for me).
I think Kurt has excellent self-care and coping mechanisms, and may not even know this is going on with him, assigning his otherness to other boxes — as his peers do — and not worrying about it.
It may just be the incredibly fucked up year I’ve had on my own Brain Quest, but I can see Kurt as an adult going through a few rounds of “So the thing we thought was this thing, is maybe this thing” until it gets drilled down to the right thing, but only in the face of a catalyst that would necessitate such an investigation.
Because Kurt is fluid with language, measurably smart by societal definitions, successful, and likely to be “weird” because he’s an “artist” whatever is going on with him is going to get blown off for a long ass time, until his brain and his heart and his life make him go, “this is really hard in a way I don’t think it is for other people.”
I don’t know if anyone else would ever believe him. Or if he would believe anyone else would ever believe him. That’s sort of what bullying does.
Like, I can’t diagnose Kurt but I feel sure I’m seeing something there.
samstav Casual tour of Paramount Studios and the Glee set when Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, and Chord Overstreet drive by in a golf cart 😭 Spotlight Diner!!! #glee
Hmm, this looks like a show I’d enjoy. What’s it called?
…..and here comes the waves of nostalgia. It seems like we’ve all lived a lifetime since then.
