Summary: Kurt and Blaine run into Sebastian after their double feature.
They were walking out of the theater, clothes more wrinkled and hair more disheveled than when they walked in for the double feature, when Blaine heard a familiar voice calling his name. He and Kurt stopped on the sidewalk—Kurt’s shoulder brushing Blaine’s—and turned to see Sebastian walking toward them.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Kurt muttered.
Blaine frowned but said nothing as he watched the other boy approach. He hadn’t talked to Sebastian since the Warblers had been disqualified from Regionals. They’d started texting a bit again after Blaine had nearly transferred back to Dalton, and they’d even gotten coffee a couple of weekends, but communication had gone dark since the cheating scandal had broken.
Blaine still wasn’t sure the radio silence was a blessing or not; on the one hand, he’d been enjoying getting to know the new and improved Sebastian, but at the same time, he’d been more than a little disappointed to realize Sebastian—new leaf and all—had cheated, since he’d performed at Sectionals.
“Hey Killer,” Sebastian said easily, coming to a stop in front of them. “It’s been a while.”
“Yeah,” Blaine agreed neutrally. He wasn’t sure if Sebastian or any of the Warblers knew he was involved with getting them disqualified, though with Trent’s involvement, he’d be surprised if they hadn’t figured it out. And if they knew, he had a feeling he wasn’t their favorite person at the moment.
“What are you doing here?” Kurt demanded coolly.
Sebastian glanced at Kurt, eyes widening slightly as he took in how much Kurt has changed over the last months. But then his eyes narrowed as he looked between Kurt and Blaine; they both had their hands in their coat pockets, but they were standing close together—closer than “just friends” would comfortably stand together, Blaine thought, despite Kurt’s protestations.
“Shouldn’t I be asking that?” Sebastian replied airily. “I actually live in Ohio.” When Kurt raised an eyebrow, Sebastian rolled his eyes and lifted up a coffee cup; it was from the Starbucks a few blocks from the theater. “I was getting coffee.”
“They have Starbucks in Westerville,” Kurt retorted.
Sebastian gave him a look. “And they have movie theaters in New York, I hear. And yet…”
allison-warriorprincess asked: I would just like to send some love your way because your blog has always just been a spot of sunshine on my dash :) Also, I agree with you on your ideas about Sebastian/Kurt/Blaine. I think a break-up for Klaine is coming, and I feel like it would be interesting to explore that possibility, particularly with Sebastian, who I love as well! Actually, an interesting fic that explores one of those possibilities is "A Change in The Weather". If you're looking for a read, you might check it out!
Thank you! <3
Also, THAT DAMNED STORY WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME. I love it dearly ;)
I don’t WANT them to be apart/broken up (dear god, DWS was hard enough to watch as it is) but last night I just mentioned that I do think it’ll happen and all of a sudden I’m being shouted at! It’s not as if I’m WISHING for it but I just have a feeling they will…!
I don’t know how I feel about Sebastian being with Blaine/Kurt. I don’t think I like it anymore in canon (not the way I used to weirdly enough as I think things have happened in canon to change how i see Blaine’s character and their relationship) but as for Sebastian’s CHARACTER, then yep, I’d love him on the show! A LOT.
Thank you for bringing a little positivity back :)
Anonymous asked: Do you think Cooter is fascinating bad guy too, or isn't he cute enough? What if he had almost blinded Beiste throwing a tainted slushie at Sue?
First of all, I choose to talk about the Cooter/Beiste issue sparingly because of personal reasons so I’ll be keeping that part of it brief.
I don’t like your tone, nor do I care for you attempting to bring something of bad taste to my blog which I keep relatively shiny-happy. But I’ll indulge you this once because I don’t like what you’re suggesting.
The entire Cooter/Beiste storyline, in my opinion, was horrible. I have worked with victims of Domestic abuse and believe me when I tell you that the fact it was utilised with the students and approached in such a way was pretty appalling to me. Shannon’s actions WERE realistic and the requisite lessons were there at the end, giving out the correct message - thank god.
Cooter is a character used as a plot device for a couple of episodes. I didn’t care for him to begin with and I certainly don’t care for him now. He didn’t interact with a character I’m invested in. He never made me laugh. He was never written to be funny etc. He was initially a sweet character and that was great until they (as Glee do) tore his potential to shreds and did the whole Sue thing and beyond.
I don’t condone violence. I don’t condone abuse or the inciting or threatening of it. Go read back in my Sebastian Smythe tag and read what I spoke about regarding those episodes and the way they handled the whole thing. I don’t think you’ll find anything positive about Sebastian’s actions in Michael. I was a horrible storyline and ruined The Warblers for me entirely. It was written REALLY badly and left (as much is on Glee) unresolved and weak.
Sebastian was brought in as the loveable villain. It was clearly his purpose. The boy’s sole aim was to have Blaine and win competitions. He’s cocky, unrelenting, cutting, offensive and an utter ASS but never was he written (as Cooter has been recently) as someone we must hate.
This is GLEE. It makes me laugh when people try to bring morals into this show and I’m a victim of it myself but it’s GLEE. Need I even bring up every instance where Glee has been TERRIBLY offensive, inappropriate and base? It is part of the SOLE POINT of the show and one of its greatest downfalls because it attempts to have such things coincide with moments of sincerity and sweetness. It has never worked and never will until they decide what kind of show they are… but I disgress.
I think any character who doesn’t repulse me is fascinating. Santana’s done some pretty shady stuff but are you entering the ask boxes of her fans questioning their passion for her character? Brittany’s a hypocrite. Rachel’s shamelessly self centred. Finn felt it was ok to out someone in a public place. Puck used to be a bully and used to physically abuse… need I go on? NO character on this show is perfect. NONE. Even Mike Chang showed he had faults in Props. Blaine has anger issues and made mistakes with Kurt in the back of the car. Kurt’s need for attention caused him to flout Blaine’s feelings and look elsewhere for emotional connection. NOT even the characters I love the most.
Put in black and white: Cooter emotionally/physically abused his wife for a prolonged period of time. Sebastian tried to humiliate and hurt someone and acted like it was a joke.
Neither are right in ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM. I believed Sebastian’s apologies, his efforts to redeem himself and make right his wrongs. None of what he did was right or excusable but he chose to TRY to make amends off his own back and there was true humanity shown in him in that episode, in my opinion.
You do NOT have to hate every bad guy but the intention of Sebastian’s character was NOT hatred and repulsion. Many don’t like him but I find him interesting and I’d like to see more of him. I make absolutely NO excuses for that.
If you are trying to suggest I’m shallow then I’m sorry, anon, but you’re so very wrong. I don’t like to bring bad feeling onto my blog so I’d be grateful if you’d direct your own issues about this topic elsewhere or if you feel like having a discussion without insinuation then I’m all up for that. Thank you :)

I am terribly old fashioned and I am happiest with a cup of tea in my hand on a rainy day.
I dream in vintage cinema, period drama, classic fashion, The Great British Bake-Off, knit wear, melodic music, the total madness of Glee, the magic of reading, interior design, musical theatre, Chanel, Mr Darren Criss' curls and sunshine smile, Mary Poppin's carpet bag, Jason Mraz's voice, 221B Baker St, River Song's spoiler book and Keira Knightley's everything.
Jane Austen is my heroine and I'd love to live in the New Girl apartment, or, you know, get married to Nick Miller.
