"By its very definition glee is about opening yourself up to joy"
I'm a Gleek, a huge fan of Chris Colfer and Darren Criss, and generally a happy person. * I try not to spoil Glee episodes but sometimes it happens.
TRY THE SWING
The Anderson Family Photo Wall: Inspirations
Try the Swing is a story by the lovely and talented beautifulhigh (aka imaginentertain on LJ) about Kurt and Blaine from the Vows Vegas ‘verse beginning to start a family. As I was contemplating ideas for a cover, a scene from Vows stood out to me: when Kurt brings Blaine over to his apartment for the first time, Blaine is moved by the collection of family pictures Kurt has artfully arranged around his living space. It spoke to him of memories and family and things he didn’t have in his own experience. It occurred to me that in Kurt and Blaine’s home, there would be dozens and dozens of pictures— family, friends, special moments captured in time—everywhere in their decor.
I found pictures that could represent special moments in their lives— childhood, high school, Kurt and Blaine as a couple, them as fathers, and their family, and put a little blurb about what I thought each picture might be from. Imaginentertain was inspired by the pictures, and in turn wrote some lovely drabble backstory to go along with a handful of the pictures.
This was a prime example of the thing I love so much about this fandom: wonderful characters inspire fantastic writers who in turn inspire artists, who again inspire writers— and on it continues, a delightful cycle of creativity at its best. (Shout out to the many talented ChrisColfer manip makers who have some FANTASTIC art to inspire future AU Kurt and Blaine!)
I hope you enjoy the story and the art. Please be sure to visit beautifulhigh and let her know how much you like her story!

Because this is relevant for reasons that buckeyegrrl knows about. This is how good she is.
Let me start by explaining something. I am not a convention person. I don’t cosplay, or enter talent contests, I like my sleep and I enjoy three square meals a day.
Let me explain something else. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for Darren Criss.
I’ve looked at the Starfury Glee conventions before, but they have never appealed to me in the slightest. I know people on social media…

BUT GUYS WHAT IF KLAINE GOT A CAT
yeah that’s esentially all the plot behind this but it’s fluffy and flirty and silly so hopefully you’ll enjoy? PG-13, 903 words.
“Ow. Ow. Ow! Blaine!”
“I’m sorry, Kurt, I don’t know how to make rubbing alcohol sting any less,” Blaine said, not looking up from his task. “I promise I’ll feed you cheesecake tonight so you don’t have to overwork your poor hand.”
“We’re declawing that damn cat as soon as possible,” Kurt grumbled, casting a dark look at their tiny gray kitten, who was curled up in the corner looking deceptively innocent.
“No, we’re not,” Blaine said patiently, working on the last of Kurt’s scratches. He grabbed the Neosporin out of the band-aid box as Kurt heaved a sigh.
“No, we’re not,” he agreed. “I know it’s bad long-term for the cats to be declawed, but it’s bad for my skin right now to be ripped to shreds by an overeager kitten, too.”
“You know Thor just wanted to play,” Blaine said, bandaging the first of Kurt’s three scratches. Thor had only gotten him with part of his paw, thankfully.
