One thing (of many things) I thoroughly like between Kurt and Blaine is that Blaine, who is socially adept, who cares what people think of him, who looks after everybody’s feelings, who told Kurt to tone it down a bit at Dalton. That same Blaine, from the moment he recognized he was in love, has never been embarrassed by Kurt. On the contrary he has wanted Kurt to reflect on him and is consistently proud of Kurt’s singularity and brilliance.
I mean, I would be too, obviously. I think Kurt’s next to the best thing on the planet. But it’s a powerful thing.
I love this. Kurt Hummel is not for everyone. Plenty of people would find him simply “too much” in any number of ways. That buttoned-down Brooks-Brothers Blaine Anderson adores every inch of him and thinks he’s the brightest, most amazing light he’s ever seen…. well that just delights me.
(And yes, Blaine ultimately goes fully candy-colored by the time Season 5 rolls around and could be “too much” for some people as well… For a long time he’s by FAR the more conservative of the pair in terms of appearance and “fitting in” and all variety of other things.)
