    Summary

    That night, when Kurt has washed his face and brushed his teeth, he calls for his dad to come say goodnight. His dad kneels down next to his bed. “Alright, lemme check.” Kurt sits up and opens his mouth wide while his dad checks first his top and then his bottom teeth. “Good job.”

    Kurt closes his mouth. His father's face is still really close. Kurt swallows. “I think... Maybe I'm a little bit a girl,” he blurts out; he's been thinking about it all evening. “Or maybe I'm just a girly boy,” he rephrases at the frown on his dad's face.

    “Well,” his dad says, looking at a loss for words, “I guess... I guess you'll figure it out.”

     
    Five times Kurt's love was misunderstood, and one time it wasn't.

    Fantastic treatment of Kurt's gender identity and its evolution. <3

    "I love you, but I love all of you. Including the parts of you that get scared and angry and sad. I love the parts of you that love Katy Perry and charming bowties just as much as I love the parts of you that love Spice World and shouting at pointless sports on TV."

    Summary

    In Lima, Kurt Hummel scrunches up his nose as he peels off his grease-stained coveralls after a long day at the garage. In Westerville, Blaine Anderson sits on the bed of his childhood bedroom and stares at the luggage he hasn’t fully unpacked since he’s been back home, about four months ago. Tonight, they’re going to meet for the first time in a dive gay bar. The year is 2018, this is Ohio and adult life is nothing like either of them had imagined it would be.

    An absolutely perfect treatment of Blaine's boxing and line about Dalton Fight Club as it impacts his relationship with Kurt.

    Summary

    Maybe tonight won't be another Sadie Hawkins, but it probably won't be as trouble-free as Kurt seems to be imagining, and if this is the only means Blaine has of dealing with that, then he's going to take it.
