There was nothing Kurt loved as much as performing. Even in a situation like this, where it was just him and his scene partner in the front of the classroom — no sets, no lights, no costumes, no stage — there was still the rush of bringing the words to life, and having everyone’s eyes on him in a way that he chose. Since his hormones had kicked into overdrive, he’d come to realize that for him performing was another sort of dominance: taking the whole audience in his hand and leading them through the experience he wanted them to have. It was exhilarating.

There You Are, Kurt/Blaine, PG

slightestwind:

this is my submission for klainebookproject, aka a follow-up to Blaine’s Blackbird revelation moment in Original Song. you can find the gorgeous companion art by animateglee here :)

The meeting is adjourned after Kurt’s touching performance of Blackbird, with Warblers not-so-discreetly sniffling and giving Kurt their condolences as they file out of the common room. Blaine barely notices them leave, though - he hangs back, heart pounding, watching as Kurt sits down at the piano and stares out the window, the sunlight catching at the tears on his cheeks. He looks striking in all black, breathtaking even with his face red from crying.

There’s a new, almost helpless ache in Blaine’s chest that wasn’t there before, and he knows it doesn’t just have to do with the loss of his closest friend’s pet. He feels a rush of elation, too, and the giddy relief of being so sure of how he feels but still slightly terrified of talking to Kurt without blurting out his feelings before they’re both ready to hear them.

This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.
