Lovefool (Glee Cast Version)
It didn’t take long for Burt to realize that Blaine was the weak link.
Neither of the boys were great fibbers, but Kurt excelled at diversions. He could talk around a question for hours, getting angry about something else until you were on the defensive and storming off in a huff before you even realized he hadn’t answered your question in the first place.
Blaine, on the other hand, carried with him a strong moral compass that made it nearly impossible for him to avoid answering a direct question when asked. Coupled with Blaine’s intense determination to stay on Burt’s good side (Burt didn’t know Blaine’s dad but he knew he was rather lacking in the warmth department, and he often wondered if that had anything to do with it), that compass made Blaine Anderson just about the worst liar Burt Hummel had ever seen.
Burt tried not to take advantage of that fact, but well—sometimes he just couldn’t help it. Like the first time Kurt asked to go to a sleepover at Mercedes’ house after he and Blaine had become official (Burt wouldn’t call it ‘started dating’ because those boys had been dating as long as they’d known each other). Blaine was over at the house for Friday dinner, and he and Burt were watching Sportscenter while Kurt finished up cooking.
"So what are you up to tomorrow night?" Burt asked during a commercial. Blaine froze, his cheeks turning pink.
"I, uh—" Blaine started, before rubbing his hand along the back of his neck. "Why do you ask?"
"Kurt’s hanging out with the girls tomorrow night, right?" Burt asked, frowning as Blaine’s mouth began working like a fish. "Blaine?"
"Yes?" Blaine asked, and Burt wasn’t sure which question it was meant to be a response to.
"Is Kurt hanging out with the girls tomorrow night?" Burt asked, and Blaine’s eyes turned big and sad.
"I think he said he was doing that," Blaine replied. "Right?"
"Kurt’s not having a sleepover with the girls, is he," Burt said, suddenly putting it all together. "He’s having a sleepover with you."
Blaine’s face crumpled. “Yes.”
Burt sighed, wishing he had a beer. “Ah, come on, don’t look like that.”
"I’m sorry," Blaine said. "We didn’t mean to lie—"
"Of course you did," Burt said, shaking his head. "You’re just no damn good at it."
↳ Kurt Hummel & Blaine Anderson
“I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn’t know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it’s never really felt like I’ve been getting to know you, it’s always felt like I was remembering you from something, as if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived, we have chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all of eternity.”

Klaine kisses in season 5
I’ve been thinking about a tattoo for a long while now, but I think it’s time to do it. I’ll see when I can talk to some artist about my idea and we’ll see if it’s going to work out.
AU: When Kurt Hummel — the neighbourhood’s infamous bad boy — steps up to protect Blaine, he’s left wondering why Kurt would go through the trouble for him. The truth comes out when he receives a call informing him that Kurt had gone after the offender again to defend Blaine’s honor, and it didn’t end well this time…
Burt called the next morning. Kurt barely slept the night before, because after the novelty wore off the swelling settled in. His tongue felt like a foreign object in his mouth, and the ball of the barbell scraped lightly against the roof of his mouth every time his jaw clenched tight as he slept. Even if he hadn’t been given caution about what he could eat he wouldn’t feel much like doing it anyway. He couldn’t even use a straw. He settled in to make an extra-liquidy smoothie with some extra protein powder just as the phone rang.
"Ulloh?" Kurt said, shocked and appalled by the sound of his own voice around his monstrous tongue. "Dah?"
"What’s going on, are you sick?" Burt said. "Or are you talking to me while you’re brushing your teeth again, Kurt, I told you last time—"
"No, no, not bwushing," Kurt said, rolling his eyes, because there was something he hadn’t yet considered—brushing his teeth. "No, not thick."
"Then what it is, you get one of those tongue piercings?" Burt said, before laughing like he did when he found something he said himself especially funny. Kurt stayed silent. "Come on kid, you’re supposed to be laughing with me here."
"I haf to go," Kurt said, hanging up the phone. He wasn’t sure why—it wasn’t like his dad could do anything to him. Or would even care. Kurt hoped he wouldn’t care.
Kurt was attempting to slurp smoothie by spoonful minutes later when his phone began to buzz with text messages.
Blaine: Your dad called me.
Blaine: He asked me to tell him you hadn’t done something stupid like get a tongue piercing.
Blaine: I couldn’t tell him that because you HAD gotten a tongue piercing, so I asked if I could tell him something else instead.
Blaine: So he said, Well at least it’s removable. It’s not like he got a stupid misspelled tattoo or anything.
Blaine: I DIDN’T KNOW WHAT TO DO KURT I HATE LYING TO YOUR DAD
Blaine: I asked him about the game last night instead but there wasn’t a game last night Kurt
Blaine: I am the worst liar ever I am so sorry we will never be maniacal archvillains together
Kurt sighed, lowering his head to his hands. He was gonna have to call his dad back.
Right after he ate fifteen ice cubes.
