My headcanon got out of control…
Yeah, every time I think about them breaking up the thing that kills me the most is THEY’RE BEST FRIENDS and they’re basically cutting tethers to a person who plays a number of the most important roles in their lives, just djsbihjbojofkj
Okay, this is all headcanon because I truly and naively believe they’ll end up back together sooner than stuff like this would be able to happen (I do believe, I do believe…) and it’s not like Glee would be so comprehensive, like, ever but:
Like, they wouldn’t be able to avoid each other because they’re both attached to the Glee Club and McKinley and share friends. Assuming the break up is as amicable as a break up can be, it would just be the sweetest, most weirdly painful thing to see them tentatively learning to behave around each other again, and just sort of testing how deep the scars are and how comfortable they are with each other once they’ve been through something so bleak.
Imagine Finn in Lima talking on the phone to Kurt and Finn’s like, ‘Blaine’s here, want to talk to him?’ and Kurt’s just like, ‘ummm… I don’t… um,’ while Blaine’s going full rabbit-in-the-headlights next to Finn and then it’s too late so a nervous, ‘hi’ from both sides, and Blaine asks, ‘how’ve you been?’
'Pretty… pretty good. New York's great. Work is… good.'
'Kurt, you can talk about work. I won't get upset.'
'I know, it just feels… weird.'
‘This feels weird.’
'Yeah. But. Not bad. Right?'
'No. Not bad.'
And they hang up and neither of them say, ‘I miss you’ even though they’re both thinking it, because jesus, that’d hurt too much and things would get way too heavy way too fast, but they’ve broken the ice.
Blaine calls Kurt the next week and tells him about Cooper’s new ad for shaving cream and they laugh, and Kurt re-friends Blaine on facebook which as much as Blaine loves still makes his stomach twist a little angrily because - he un-friended him on facebook who even - whatever, whatever, it’s fine.
Kurt starts mailing Blaine a playbill from every show he goes too, which was something he’d said he’d do when they were still dating. At first he’s worried that it might be a kind of inflammatory thing to do, like, ‘hey, look at me, bright lights, big city,’ but Blaine calls him after he gets the first one and Kurt can tell from his voice that he isn’t faking his joy. He sounds so excited Kurt pretty much wants to kiss him, and then he realises he’s thinking of kissing Blaine and freaks out a little bit.
Blaine has regular dinners with Burt and Carole and the two of them call each other a couple of times a week, and then Blaine asks Kurt if it’d be okay for him to come to New York so they could spend a day together or get dinner and, ‘don’t worry, i’ll stay in a hotel, i won’t get in your way’ and, ‘don’t be silly Blaine, you can sleep on our air mattress, it’s fine.’
So Blaine arrives and they spend the day all snugged up in scarves and coats walking through parks (not Battery Park) and chatting and drinking coffee and Kurt takes Blaine to sushi for lunch and afterwards they’re walking and Kurt’s hand brushes Blaine’s, or Blaine’s hand brushes Kurt’s, and suddenly they’re holding hands. Both of them staring straight ahead and not talking and oh my god they’re holding hands.
And eventually they end up back at the apartment AND MAKE UP SEX OCCURS. LOTS AND LOTS OF IT, ALL NIGHT WITH BREAKS FOR COLD TAKEAWAY DUMPLINGS AND WHISPERING TO EACH OTHER IN THE DARK BEFORE MORE SEX AND MORE SEX AND EKJSRFVBHJB
