At the encouragement of [livejournal.com profile] glitterwocky, I put back the 37 words of throwaway reference to one of Blaine's sports in "Thursday's Child Has Far to Go." It's only 37 words, and it's really not worth going back and reading the whole chapter just to see it, and it's really not worth going back to search for (it's about halfway through Blaine and Kurt's phone conversation in the last scene but, really, don't go searching for it, because you'll be disappointed). Still, I thought I'd point it out for anyone who might be rereading the story and thinks, "I don't remember seeing that there before."

Background on why, including slight spoiler for 3.08 - Hold on to Sixteen  )

Okay. I have a multi-chapter fic that I want to post this week and it's pretty much done thanks to the amazing [livejournal.com profile] verdandil, but I need to decide the answer to this question before I start posting (and I'd like to start posting Monday):

Would Kurt Hummel make a grammatical error? (when he's not drunk, drugged, sick or in the throes of passion)

The type of grammatical error I'm thinking of is the type that almost everyone  the United States makes, like not differentiating between "who" and "whom" or not using the subjunctive when it's called for ("If I were a rich man").

Context of potential grammatical error: He is speaking with a friend.

Please pipe in with your opinion. A simple yes/no would be great; your headcanon on Kurt's degree of perfectionism would be awesome.

I didn't watch Glee last night and continued writing some episode 3.05 reaction fic today. Except that I don't know if I will ever post it, because I don't know if I'll continue it, because Blaine is making me so depressed! I mean, I know the episode ends in happiness, but that kid is soooo lacking in the self-worth department at times throughout the episode that I am just beside myself.

I don't know if self-worth is the right word. It's just that Blaine thinks he has to be what other people want him to be, and sometimes forgets that he has his own internal dignity that doesn't depend on how many people like him or approve of his choices.

Blaine, please, get to an Alateen meeting already before you make me cry!

In the non-Glee, cheerful upside, this is Trans Awareness Week and I'm currently reading an awesome book called Gender Born, Gender Made by psychologist Diane Ehrensaft. It's about raising children who don't fall into neat categories in the binary gender system. I highly recommend it whether you are a parent of gender-variant kids or not.

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.)
