Author’s Note: So this is the third story in the “Chance” series. You’ll need to have read An Accidental Chance and Chances Are for this one to make any sense. For a long time, I said that I was done with this verse. I had burned myself out and wasn’t sure I wanted to come back to it, no matter how much I love it. Finally, after much discussion with my betas and an itch to write something, I decided that was going to come back here, to finish out Kurt and Blaine’s story in this verse. I mean, Cooper Anderson didn’t even exist when I started writing these!! :D
There’s a lot(I mean A LOT)of meta here. Fandom tropes, in jokes, and real life cast member events may be twisted to suit my purposes for this fic (except for what happened with Cory. That will not happen in any way in this verse and Finn is very much alive, if in the background, for those that need that warning). As a whole, it’s largely an AU of season four. Warnings and ratings may vary by chapter.
If you want progress updates, or want to leave me a prompt for this verse, my tumblr is here. I am tentatively accepting prompts again, so hit me up!
So many, many thanks to beautifulhigh and star55 for being my betas on this, and putting up with my whining, my second guessing and my comma abuse.
Dreams were funny things, Blaine decided. His whole life, he’d wanted nothing more than to just get away from his father. In doing so, he’d discovered a passion for acting and had somehow become an award winning actor. Not a bad thing for a kid who’d once dreamed of lighting up Broadway.
He’d spent most of his childhood avoiding his father, wondering why it was that Carl Anderson couldn’t love him. It hadn’t been too terrible when Blaine was younger – his father had pushed and pushed him to do better but he hadn’t become mean and disapproving until Blaine had come out. So it was quite shocking now, the almost decent relationship he had with his father.
He’d once dreamed of falling in love. Of finding that perfect someone just for him – but Blaine had never once imagined it would be Kurt that he would end up with. In his wildest dreams, he could never have fantasized their meeting or what Kurt would come to mean to him.
He stared at the bouquet of yellow and red roses he was holding in his hand and smiled. He left the condo and headed out to the car waiting for him on the busy New York street outside the building.
He had to go see another dream come true.
