Okay, so as many of you may know, there's this new 'verse going around on Tumblr in which Blaine and Rachel are siblings and Blaine has a crush on Kurt. this 'verse has (at least in my head) become known as Anderberry. If you don't know what I'm talking about, go to my tumblr (warblingaway) and then I have a whole page reserved for Anderberry. So...yes.
This is going to be a series of drabbles/oneshots involving this 'verse. Which I've quickly fallen in love with, by the way. It's all over my Tumblr now XD
Enjoy :D Because i know I'm enjoying this new 'verse greatly XD
"So there I am, singing in the choir room, when all of a sudden Sugar just waltzes in and starts making that noise that she claims is singing over me. And I was just like 'How dare you?' But she just kept screeching and Finn just sat there laughing and –"
Kurt laughed as he lounged on Rachel's bed, resting his head on Mercedes shoulder. They were having one of their sleepovers, which were becoming less and less frequent as they got older and therefore busier, but they still happened at least once every few weeks. "No offense, Rachel," Kurt interrupted her. "But that's what you do to the whole of New Directions on a daily basis."
"I do not!" Rachel protested, looking shocked.
"Honey, you do," Mercedes agreed as she painted a layer of purple nail polish on her thumb. "But we're all used to it."
The short brunette huffed and threw a pillow at Mercedes. "Well I'm sorry that I can't let my talent go to waste," she said. "It's really for the benefit of everyone."
Kurt chuckled and shook his head fondly. He was about to reply when he saw the shifting of a shadow outside of Rachel's room. "Rachel," he whispered, "Someone's outside your door."
"Hey!" Rachel yelled, throwing a different pillow at the door, "Blaine, get out!"
Kurt was always shocked by Rachel's ability to know when Blaine's presence was around. However, his internal musings were put to a halt as Blaine pushed the door open and walked into the room.
Kurt hadn't seen Blaine in about a year. He was a year younger than himself and Rachel, and, as of the previous year, Rachel's parents had enrolled him at the Dalton Academy in Westerville, since he was apparently some genius or something.
He looked older, his hair gelled down, his shoulder broader, an afternoon shadow showing on his face.
Kurt watched as Blaine took in the room, returning his attention back to the nail file as Blaine deflated slightly. "You're having another sleepover without me?" Blaine pouted, sticking his lower lip out in that way he had been doing since he was a toddler.
"Yes, Blaine, younger siblings aren't ever invited to the older sibling's sleepovers," Rachel huffed, "That's just how it is."
"I'm only ten months younger than you!" Blaine protested, coming fully into the room now. "And, for your information, people at Dalton think that I'm a Senior, while I'm sure people at your school often think that you're a visiting middle-schooler."
Mercedes clamped her hand over her mouth, stifling a laugh as Kurt watched Rachel's expression.
"Just so you know," Rachel retorted once she composed herself, "I'm still older than you."
"Obviously," Blaine shrugged. "You point it out every time we talk, and –" He paused as his eyes landing on Kurt, his cheeks tinting slightly. "Oh," he said quietly. "Hi, Kurt."
"Hey, Blaine," Kurt smiled, still mainly focusing on the nail file. "How are you?"
Blaine walked over to the bed and sat on the edge next to Kurt. "I'm good," he answered. Kurt looked up and caught his eyes, causing the younger boy to blush again slightly. "I'm actually lead singer for the Warblers now," he continued on. "We're planning on doing a Katy Perry song soon."
"That's great!" Kurt replied, grinning at Blaine. "I guess we'll see you at Sectionals then?"
"Yep," Blaine nodded, shifting a little closer to Kurt. "I would tell you what I'm singing but –"
"Competition, I know," Kurt said with a chuckle. "You are Rachel's brother, after all. Being worried about competition is in your blood."
Blaine laughed and opened his mouth to say something else, but Rachel beat him to it.
"Look, Blaine, this has been great an all and we really love your presence, but if you could please leave now that would be great," Rachel said, her voice irritated, "We've got business to attend to."
"Right, sorry," Blaine said as he raised himself up off the bed. "I'll leave you to your little ranting session about how you're talents aren't praised or whatever it is you're always complaining about."
"Blaine – Get out!" Rachel threw another pillow at him, leaving only the one Kurt was resting on still on the bed.
"Fine, fine," Blaine held his hands up in surrender. "I'll catch you guys later. Bye Mercedes." Blaine did a little wave.
"Bye, hun," Mercedes grinned at him, waving back.
Blaine's eyes landed on Kurt again, and this time it was Kurt who felt himself flushing. "Bye, Kurt," he said, his voice tender and soft.
"Bye," Kurt all but breathed, and wow, what was going on with him?
Blaine grinned at him one last time before walking out of the room, shutting the door behind him.
"Oh my god, boo," Mercedes grabbed Kurt's arm in excitement, "I'm pretty sure Rachel's brother's in love with you."
"I – what?" Kurt was shocked.
"Oh, he definitely is," Rachel added nonchalantly. "The first thing he asked yesterday was whether or not you'd be coming over soon."
Kurt felt himself blushing, wanting nothing more than to just hide his face in the pillow behind his back.
"I personally find it weird," Rachel went on, "I mean, you're my best friend. And he's my little brother."
"Aw, come on," Mercedes argued. "It's cute. So he's got a little schoolboy crush on Kurt, and unless Kurt feels the same way you don't have anything to worry about."
Kurt could practically see it in Rachel's eyes, the question that was coming next.
Luckily, they heard Blaine holler from downstairs that dinner was ready.
"Come on," Rachel hopped off the bed. "Let's go eat."
Mercedes followed Rachel out of the room while Kurt remained on the bed for a moment.
Blaine liked him. Dapper, out and proud, private school boy Blaine liked him.
And Kurt felt that maybe, just maybe, he liked Blaine back.
There was a knock on Rachel's door a moment later.
"I'm coming, Rachel," Kurt sighed as he sat up and slipped on his slippers.
The door cracked open. "It's not Rachel."
Kurt's head whipped up at the voice. Blaine entered the room, shutting the door quietly behind him. He tried to keep his face from blushing as Blaine walked over and sat down next to him on the bed. "How have you been?" Blaine asked after a moment of silence. "I haven't seen you in a while."
Kurt shrugged. "Alright, I suppose." But then he added, "At least, if you count the raging homophobia at McKinley as something that's okay."
Blaine sighed and patted Kurt's knee comfortingly. "Between just us," he whispered, his breath blowing softly against Kurt's ear. "That's part of the reason I transferred to Dalton."
Kurt nodded. "I figured," he muttered.
"Hey," Blaine said, his grip on Kurt's knee tightening a little. "It'll get better."
"I hope so."
Kurt looked down at his hands in his lap, wondering how the conversation had even come to this. He and Blaine had only talked about this twice before, but Kurt knew that Blaine was the only person who would really understand.
He felt Blaine shift closer to him, and then an arm wound itself around his waist.
"You know," Blaine murmured into Kurt's ear, "Sometimes it's best to just let it out."
Kurt, it must have been subconsciously, rested his head on Blaine's shoulder. "Not right now," he muttered. "I don't want to have to explain that to Rachel."
The two boys fell silent for a moment, Kurt not lifting his head up and Blaine keeping his arm around his waist.
"Blaine?" Kurt lifted his head up as he said the other boy's name so that he could make easier eye contact.
Blaine raised his eyebrows in acknowledgement.
"What would you say if I kissed you right now?"
Blaine's face turned beet red, but he didn't break the eye contact. "Well, I'd let you," he whispered after a moment, "Because it's apparently extremely obvious that I've liked you for like two years now."
Kurt grinned but didn't make any inclination to move, mainly because he couldn't remember how.
Blaine must have sensed this, since he took the initiative. He leaned in slowly until their lips were just a few centimeters apart. "Are you sure?"
Kurt nodded, and Blaine's lips were so close that Kurt could almost taste them and –
Kurt jumped, landing on his feet on the side of the bed.
"Come and eat!"
"Damn you, Rachel," Blaine muttered from where he was still seated on the bed. He glanced up at Kurt once, who knew that his eyes were wide and his face was red. Blaine blushed and stood up, quickly brushed his pants off and said something about going to eat before rushing out of the room.
Kurt took a shaky breath, clenching his hands in front of him.
He had almost kissed Blaine. He'd almost kissed Rachel's younger brother.
And now he had to go eat dinner with Mercedes, Blaine, and Rachel.
Well, Kurt thought as he took one last breath and walked out of the room, This is going to be awkward on so many levels.
I figured this would be a good way to start this XD
These oneshots won't be related, they'll just be sporadic little things that I most likely wrote for something/someone on Tumblr. I"m not finding Anderberry in everything, so...yeah.
I just love this prospect so much. It honestly is something I never would have thought of, but now that I've realized it it's like "oh yeah, they'd totally be the sharpay and ryan of the Glee Universe"
And I already have three of these written - the next two being are shorter but still.
Disclaimer: I don't own anything!
Now review please XD And I wasn't sure whether I should put the characters as Blaine adn RAchel or Blaine and Kurt, so I just did Kurt becuase it is still Klaine related (because everything I write is always Klaine related). But if you guys think it should be Rachel, go ahead and let me know XD
