Glee AU - The Other End of the Line
Kurt Hummel works every night (while Americans are at work, on the other side of the world) at the City One Bank Card call center in London. Speaking in a perfect American English accent, he tells his customers his name is James David and a native of San Francisco.
Kurt, posing as James David, happens to call the handsome and charming Blaine Anderson to help him with the fraudulent charges on his credit card. Kurt and Blaine have an instant connection over the phone.
Unable to suppress the intrigue their easy chemistry offers, Kurt agrees to meet Blaine in San Francisco as James David.
Okay, I’ve been waiting for this gifset. I am high on pain meds and I have about ten million feelings to talk about in this episode, but I want to point to the bottom left gif. See that second? That’s not just anger. That’s a nano second of sadness , or something like that. That at the end? That looks like “I don’t get it.”
yeah he’s pissed at the top. And he’s competitive. And there’s something under the whole thing they both feel coming to a head here. But I want to say, Kudos to Chris because he can act the shit out of the bat of an eyelash AND yes, these boys are complicated and I feel like there’s a lot of reductive talk on tumblr right now about how they behaved. It’s possible to feel a lot of things at once and it’s imperative that we have empathy and applause for complicated, fucked up, wonderful characters who love each other and have a lot to learn.
I should probably not rant when high. Especially when I’m not really explaining all my episode feels.
This is a lovely study of this gif set and scene. Yes, this captures wonderfully both Kurt’s complex feelings in this scene and Chris’ amazing acting abilities.
I’m just so scared that you’re gonna keep changing, and you’re gonna keep getting stronger. And then one day you’re gonna wake up and you’re gonna realize that “I don’t love him anymore”.
Every time I think I can’t possibly love him more, he does something that resets the whole scale.
