S03E11: Of Slushies and Love

I think about the two seasons where Kurt kept taking slushies, and then I think about the time he took a slushie for Finn's sake.

I just rewatched the scene where Blaine jumps in front of him - it's barely a second; you see Kurt lifting his arms in an attempt to protect himself, but the slushie never hits.

When I think about the implications of it all, look at the big picture, I find this single act beautiful. We all know that Kurt and Blaine love each other, but from this particular perspective (a history of slushies and humiliation), it comes down to this: someone cares enough about Kurt to take the hurt in his stead. I believe you can extrapolate on these specific circumstances and project them on their relationship as a whole; it may seem farfetched, but there is something metaphorical about the act that reflects so much significance in my eyes.

All the pretty!sobbing for our boys.

Dear Inspiration Fairy, stop tempting me.

On Pause

Real Life has taken over me; I won't be very active for the next two weeks.

Lies. Going back to my lurking ways.
I just want to write again. No, not essays. Sob.

Of Words and Tenses

"I have something up my sleeve," is how I would like to start this post, except that whatever is up my sleeve won't get out.

If you've read THTH, you'll understand that the style of that piece - however it may be defined - is that with which I am most comfortable, as it naturally reflects the workings of my mind (i.e. emotional ramblings). The words flow so easily when I write in present tense.

I've been working for a while now on a new piece, which is intended to be a multi-chaptered fanfiction. The research material I've gathered is, I believe, comprehensive enough, and the general outline of the story is done. When it comes to more technical aspects, I decided to write in past tense as I deemed it more fitting, and therein lies my problem.

I've been on the prologue for over a month, and while the first half of it is not entirely bad, the last scene in itself makes me cringe with how dry it is, and, because of that, I can't seem to finish it. I block every single time; thinking in past tense makes me jittery. It's like bumping into wall every time you try to take a step forward. There are strings of sentences and amalgams of words in my head that are waiting to be written, but they won't translate onto paper/screen.

Of course, I could write in present tense first, and then change the verb sequence, but I find difficulty in writing a scene by itself. I need to see the whole picture, where I'm heading, at least in my mind. And when the work in itself has a past-tense tone, there's a weird dichotomy which arises when I start thinking in present tense again.

Phew, I guess I needed to let that out. I'm ranting like a child right now, but I'm actually pretty excited about this new project. Surely, I'll find a way to get past this - the solution will probably naturally come on its own, as it does for many things in writing - but if you have any comments or advice, I'll be glad to receive them.

- V.

To Have and to Hold (One-shot)

Title: To Have and to Hold
Author: verdandil

Pairing: Kurt/Blaine
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Vague references to 3.05
Warnings: Implied sexual activity
Disclaimer: I do not own Glee or any of its characters.
Word Count: 2,800
Summary: Blaine loves holding Kurt’s hand. It really is that simple.
Author's Note: First fanfiction published, and first LJ post; I'm putting my toes in the sandbox. I started this after the two-week onslaught of spoilers, and my overly emotional state has apparently lead to this. Unbeta'ed. Includes: some comma abuse, a certain simplicity, a clumsy attempt at writing dialogue, and the shameless, unrestrained idealistic musings of a romantic fool. English is not my first language, but I do hope you will find some satisfaction in this. Comments are well appreciated
