    Summary

    After much soul-searching, Blaine and Kurt have reunited, and are ready to enjoy themselves together in New York while performing on Broadway in Into the Woods. But they and their characters discover that getting your wish doesn’t guarantee happiness. Although they are certain they want to be together, circumstances take a toll – the stress of performing every night, Kurt’s grief over the loss of his father, and Blaine’s struggle to give enough but not too much of himself away. This is the beginning of their “ever after.”

    Note: This sequel gives more insight into Kurt and his journey, following the events in The Journeying. As in that story, this one is based on what might have happened if Kurt and Blaine had reacted differently to the break up in 6x01 than they did in canon; if events hadn’t brought them back together as soon, and if forgiveness hadn’t come so easily.

    Canon compliant through end of season 5 (and the breakup as described in 6x01). Tw: discussion of Burt's death (which occurred in The Journeying); some discussion of past depression.

    Summary

    “You didn’t transfer schools for a better education or a change of scenery, Blaine,” his father reminds him, not unkindly. “We sent you to Dalton so you would be safe.” Or the one where Blaine’s junior year at Dalton means a boyfriend who is now his competition, a family who are only ever predictable when it suits them, a transfer student with a penchant for stirring things up, meddling Warblers and the realization that the safe option may not always be the best one. A season three!AU.

    Summary

    Kurt and Blaine could easily not have met on a staircase in high school. They could have met a few years later in college instead.

    This story is AU from within 2x06 ("Never Been Kissed"), with many of the broad strokes of canon remaining except where I thought they would be different because of the AU or other factors. It takes place in Blaine's first year of college, starting about a year from now. There are some spoilers through 3x22 (“Goodbye”).

    Fuller notes and the LJ master post for this story can be found here. Special thanks to intrepid beta and hand-holder stoney321, who made the best encouraging noises when I said "I've been thinking about who Kurt and Blaine might be if they hadn't found each other in high school" and who never stopped.

    This story is now completely posted.
