Occasionally, usually in response to current events/situations/headcannons, I will feel inspired to write and post short Klaine drabbles on Tumblr. I decided to go ahead and publish them on here too. Each "chapter" will be a separate Tumblr drabble. :) They're not my best writing, and usually written in less than 15 minutes, with little editing, so don't expect too much. Rated T, just in case, but I highly doubt there will ever be anything that intense. They are just drabbles, after all. LOL.
This first drabble was written on the night of June 24, 2011 when same-sex marriage passed in the New York Senate. I was beyond ecstatic, and I had to write something to channel my inspiration, so this came out of it. I think it sucks, but whatever. HAHA. Enjoy. :)
Kurt and Blaine were huddled together on the couch in the Hummels' living room, eyes trained on Blaine's laptop where it sat on the coffee table in front of them. Half of the monitor was the New York State Senate's livestream, and the other half was Kurt's Twitter page. Tweets from various equality organizations were continuously adding to the constant stream, updating every moment of the livestream that they were watching.
They had been here for two hours, had seen the amendment to the bill pass. The amendment that still allowed religious institutions to discriminate and refuse to perform ceremonies if they chose to, but Kurt didn't let it bother him. One step at a time, he thought. If this bill didn't pass, the amendment wouldn't matter anyway…
Every now and then, Burt, Carole, or Finn would come in and ask how things were going. The boys would give an update to the best of their knowledge before being left with each other again. Kurt was grateful to his family that they were letting him experience this moment in history alone with Blaine.
A few Senators spoke, explaining their decisions to vote for or against the bill, most far exceeding the two minute limit the President had given each of them. Kurt rolled his eyes at one of the Senators voting against and teared up at several of the senators voting in the affirmative.
Finally, the time had come. The speakers had finished, and the time to read the results was here.
Blaine gripped Kurt's hand, and they held each other close, hearts racing as the names of the "Nays" were read.
"There's so many," Blaine whispered.
"Shh," Kurt soothed, though anxiety was starting to make him feel sick, too.
The Secretary began to read the "Ayes."
"Did you count how many no's there were?" Kurt asked suddenly, "Oh my god."
"No, I don't know. I don't think I could count how many fingers I have right now."
The last affirmative vote was read. Not a single breath was drawn. Blaine's grip on Kurt's hand was growing painful. Kurt squeezed back, his heart hammering in his chest.
"Ayes: 33. Nays: 29," the Secretary stated. The crowd gathered in the Senate burst into cheers and applause.
The boys stared at each other in silence, both disbelieving. Blaine's face glowed as a smile finally broke out on his face, Kurt's soon following suit. He burrowed into his boyfriend's embrace, and they held each other tightly, laughing in sheer joy as tears filled their eyes and spilled onto each other's shirts.
After a moment, there was a knock on the doorframe. They looked up to see the rest of Kurt's family peeking inside.
"Good news?" Carole asked. Kurt only nodded, not sure he could trust his voice. There were smiles all around as Kurt went to hug his dad, stepmom, and stepbrother. Carole pulled Blaine into a hug, Burt clasping him on the shoulder.
"I'm so happy for you guys," Finn said genuinely.
The three of them remained in the room for a few minutes before leaving again, and Blaine turned to Kurt, his eyes sparkling with tears, pride, and so much affection. They kissed passionately, hearts racing in synch.
"So," Blaine asked when they broke apart, "We're still planning on New York City after graduation, right?"
Kurt laughed, "Yes. Yes, we are. And I'd like to ask you something."
"Mhmm?" Kurt took Blaine's hands, holding them tightly as he bent down on one knee. Blaine looked a little surprised, but he said nothing.
"Blaine Anderson," he began, "You complete me. You are the Sesame to my Street. You are the midwestern tourist in my Statue of Liberty." Blaine chuckled, "You are the greatest thing that's ever happened to me, and I love you so much I can't express it with words… Someday, when we go to New York, I want to get down on one knee again and ask you to marry me… I want to be the next Neil and David with you." He stood back up and smiled at Blaine, whose eyes were filled with fresh tears, "But right now, I just want to tell you how happy I am to be your boyfriend, and how happy I am that I could spend tonight with you."
"How am I supposed to respond to that?" Blaine asked with a choked laugh. Kurt shrugged and shook his head, at a loss for words, and Blaine rolled his eyes, "You're amazing." He pulled Kurt into another tight hug, pressing a kiss to his temple. "And I love you, too."
Reviews are totally awesome, btw...
