“Backstage, Blaine’s phone rings. And it is Kurt. He has climbed out onto the fire escape in the cold in the rain to call Blaine because no matter how warm and wonderful it is inside his loft right now, he is still cold on his insides because of the hobbit-shaped hole in his heart. At first, he just wants to accept Blaine’s apology and move on with his life, like Isabelle told him was the grown-up thing to do. But then he thinks wishing Blaine luck at Sectionals is also the grown-up thing to do. But then once he starts talking, he can’t stop, because just the knowledge of Blaine on the other end of the phone is making him feel whole and alive again, and so he invites him to go ice skating at Christmas, invites him to have a real conversation with him about their lives and their future, invites him to laugh with him because he’s still scared of that mouse he saw one time at Lima Bean. Blaine’s face lights up like Christmas and he blurts out that he loves Kurt so much, and Kurt cannot help himself. He says he loves Blaine too. They stay on the line just long enough to let the other one know they never, ever want to hang up.”—Afterelton (via bandwagonjumping)
As Kurt on Glee, Chris Colfer has a knack for singing, drama, and that envy-worthy bouffant. But in real life, his gift-giving skills need some work! “I never remember to get gifts for my cast members,” Colfer (in a Dior shirt and Bally tie) told InStyle.com at the HFPA and InStyle Miss Golden Globe party in Los Angeles last night. ”They always get me things, but I never remember. I’m such a horrible person. Maybe this year I’ll remember!“ We’re hoping that maybe talking to us inspired him to make a mental note to shop for Lea Michele (in Valentino), Darren Criss, and the rest of the McKinley High School gang. At least he knows what he’ll get them when/if he makes time to go: “I always like getting gag gifts for people,” he said. Who knew he was such a trickster?
