Awww, thank you so much! I’m glad that I did the scene justice, though I did quote directly from it a few times. Any excuse to rewatch an episode of Friends!
I hadn’t even thought about Darren’s hair (I’m not a very visual person) but it totally works!

— Kurt and Blaine have known each other since childhood, but they’re far from friends. High school enemies turned college roommates in New York, they’re forced to spend extra time together thanks to mutual friends. What happens when “never” turns into “what if?”(also: dirty dancing)
(lyrics - Maroon 5’s Love Somebody)
“Where are you running off to?” Kurt mutters, eyes trained on his roommate’s back in the doorway.
“I’m going out,” is Blaine’s terse response. He doesn’t move from the doorframe though; instead he turns to look at Kurt, who refuses to make eye contact as he pretends to look over his textbook review pages. Blaine grins. “Just how smart are you?”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, I consider myself pretty intelligent, but I’d never succeed at studying an upside-down textbook.”
And those feels appear to have turned into something like fic.
(Approximately PG to PG-13)The Setup
Two months after they finally move into their first house, Blaine quits his godawful, only-barely-worth-the-exorbitant-salary-when-Kurt-was-trying-to-start-a-business-from-nothing-and-definitely-not-worth-it-now, suit and tie, office building sales job, exactly six weeks before their first adoption is supposed to go through. He spends the next couple of weeks finally, finally getting around to putting up the border of little yellow ducks and finishing all the brightly-colored painted stencils on the walls of the baby’s room, scoping out every park, playground, and hospital emergency room within a ten mile radius of the house, and obsessively re-reading every baby book in the house. Kurt teases him about it over dinner, but Blaine’s a little scared of babies. Kids, kids are great—babies just seem so breakable.
Three weeks after that, they get the call that their unborn baby’s father is back in the picture and suing for custody, and between his lawyers and the mother’s own indecision, they don’t really have a snowball’s chance in hell of going home with a baby next month. Blaine ends up calling Kurt at work to tell him, and Kurt comes home three hours early even though he’s planning a massive benefit dinner at the Museum of Natural History in four days and a wedding the weekend after next. They go out for pizza and a movie and don’t talk about it, really, until they’re in bed much too early, Blaine curled around Kurt from behind in the dark.
“I really don’t want to have to get another job,” Blaine says out of nowhere.
“You’re not getting another job like that,” Kurt says instantly. “I’ve been trying to get you to quit for a year. We don’t need the money.”
“What do stay-at-home spouses without kids even do all day?” Blaine wonders.
