While googling the definition of "glasz" the other day (because I had read it in a fanfic and had never seen the word before, and I'm a professional editor for Pete's sake), I found this great Tumblr meme of the tag glasz. I say "great" because the first entry is a hilarious, if short, diatribe on the author's least favorite Kurt/Blaine fanfic tropes, including the idea "that a medium drip is a specialty drink.  It’s drip coffee.  In a medium cup.  Seriously." (You can see the author's Tumblr page here, but I warn you, it is a spoiler-rich zone.)

But I also was disturbed by the diatribe because I always though the "medium" part of "medium drip" meant "medium roast." And I've been in love with that idea because I hate dark roast, and the fact that a character would specify something other than dark when he orders his coffee just made me so happy.

Am I the only one who thought that? Is the Lima Bean too small of a shop to offer at least one each of a light, medium, dark and French roast on a continual basis? Alternatively, is it too hoity-toity to name its coffees by the degree of roast? Would it instead name them by country of origin? Would it follow the stupid marketing trend of giving coffees totally meaningless names like "Thanksgiving Blend" and "Celebration Blend" and "Summer Roast"?

Please tell me I am not the only one who thought that Blaine drinks nothing but medium-roast drip coffee – well, and maybe a light roast when he's feeling daring. It is such an integral part of my headcanon; I don't think I can ever let that idea go.

(Oh, and if you want to know my least favorite Kurt/Blaine fanfic trope, it's calling Kurt a countertenor in a context unrelated to his singing. Like, he's practicing at Glee rehearsal and gets called a countertenor – awesome; he's in the middle of making out with Blaine and "The countertenor ran his hand slowly down the curly-haired boy's bare stomach and really, really did not want to stop at that &%^*ing waistband" – well, you've just distracted me in what was otherwise a totally hot make-out scene. Just write Kurt and Blaine please, and I will be so so happy.)
