16 chapters, NC-17, COMPLETE.
“Two boys don’t meet on a staircase. They can barely be said to meet in high school at all…One little change, a near miss instead of a happy accident.
Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson don’t become friends. They don’t become boyfriends. They don’t support each other through bullying, through proms, through fears and disappointments, through different schools, through reaching for their dreams, through the first fumbling steps of love and all that comes after.
They don’t become Kurt-and-Blaine.
This is what happens instead.”
Hands-down one of the best fics I have EVER read, but also one of the most emotionally wrenching. The writing is gorgeous, the characterization is perfect, and the story itself is painstakingly well-executed.
This fic will break you, but in the best way possible.
