Fic Recs: How Burt Hummel was eventually won over by Blaine Anderson (Klaine, PG)
This story is by exeterlinden at AO3 (and maybe on LJ too, not sure?), and I recced it the other day and decided to reread it. This is a lovely, long oneshot that has Burt Hummel coming to terms with Blaine, and ultimately the beautiful and understated relationship of Kurt and Blaine in this story. Just a fantastic, heartwarming read. I highly recommend it! (Also the author’s other work is also fantastic).
Burt watched them go, two dark shapes in the moist October air with their backs to the projector glare from the field. Even in the half-dark Kurt’s body language was painfully obvious to read; there was an extra sashay in his step and his whole body was turned towards Blaine. His open hand was swaying close to where Blaine’s was buried in his pocket, his fingers brushing up against the thick wool of Blaine’s coat. Blaine seemed oblivious, walking with both hands deep in his pockets, his back straight and head forward; he was completely ignoring Kurt’s blatant invitation.
I just read this from start to finish and it was so perfect.
