BLAINE IN HIS OLD ROOM.
BLAINE DEVASTATED AND CRYING.
BLAINE LOOKING EXACTLY LIKE HE HAS BEEN BEHAVING IN MY HEAD, AND WHAT MY DEPRESSED RS-ANDERSON/GLEE-LOVING BRAIN HAS LOOKED LIKE, FOR THE PAST 4.5 MONTHS.
I can take it out of context and use it in 4x04, I can modify or shield the text and use it in contexts where Kurt is dead, I can stare at it on its own because it is just a beautifully tragic work of art (double tears!), IT'S PERFECT. And I didn't see anything else except a tiny glimpse of a set I already saw in a promo pic and elected to ignore as unreal anyway.
Thank you, universe. Thank you for this gift. I feel blessed. This was my secret dream for season 6 -- to be able to pluck select images to add to my existing canon but not have to risk any gut-wrenching sights or knowledge along with them.
