I’m writing my essay on cyber-bullying right now
and there was this article that said “anon hate hurts us because when we read it, we don’t hear the attacker’s voice, we hear our own”
and that’s a really good observation.

Author’s Note: So this is the third story in the “Chance” series. You’ll need to have read An Accidental Chance and Chances Are for this one to make any sense. For a long time, I said that I was done with this verse. I had burned myself out and wasn’t sure I wanted to come back to it, no matter how much I love it. Finally, after much discussion with my betas and an itch to write something, I decided that was going to come back here, to finish out Kurt and Blaine’s story in this verse. I mean, Cooper Anderson didn’t even exist when I started writing these!! :D
There’s a lot(I mean A LOT)of meta here. Fandom tropes, in jokes, and real life cast member events may be twisted to suit my purposes for this fic (except for what happened with Cory. That will not happen in any way in this verse and Finn is very much alive, if in the background, for those that need that warning). As a whole, it’s largely an AU of season four. Warnings and ratings may vary by chapter.
If you want progress updates, or want to leave me a prompt for this verse, my tumblr is here. I am tentatively accepting prompts again, so hit me up!
So many, many thanks to beautifulhigh, star55 and unproductivepeanut for being my betas on this, including beautifulhigh betaing right in my living room while she was on vacation. You gals are the best. <3
This week we sat down with the new guy on the set of New York Life, Chandler Keihl.
I: Tell us a little bit about yourself – is this your first job?
CK: It is! *bounces a little in his chair* I was headed to NYU and I saw the open casting call for Thomas and got the part. Totally not what I expected, but C’est La vie!
I: How’s it been working with the cast?
CK: Amazing! They’re really great guys and they’ve made me feel so at home, I can’t even.
I: You’re originally from Lima, Ohio, right? What’s it been like moving to New York?
CK: Like a dream! I’ve known for years this is where I wanted to be and now here I am! I met Blaine’s boyfriend, Kurt Hummel, at a store called Between the Sheets back in Ohio and it’s been really nice to have someone here that I already know.
I: Can you tell us anything upcoming for Thomas and James?
CK: *Laughs* Nope, ‘cause then I’d have to kill ya, don’tcha know.
I am so fucking tired. I lay in bed for hours last night because my brain just wouldn’t shut off. There was so much going on in my head, it’s like I was really hyperactive and couldn’t calm down. And after finally falling asleep, and waking up every thirty or minutes or so, four hours later I am up and leaving for work. It’s going to be a long day.
A Great Big World - Already Home (Starring Darren Criss & Jessica Szohr)
do you ever get so disgusted with yourself, like you can not believe how stupid and thoughtless you are and it’s so frustrating because you keep telling yourself that you’ll do better next time but then next time rolls around and the same thing keeps happening and you end up in this pattern of mediocrity.
