Let me just say right now how much I love this fic! I love the way everything is handled and how it takes what happened in canon and dealt with it in a more realistic way. My heart just breaks for Kurt so much in this and how much he has to deal with and how pretty much everyone in the show just doesn’t get it. I remember watching the beginning episodes of this season and how absolutely frustrated I was with just about everyone, especially in the Grilled Cheesus episode, and I definitely appreciate how this is a response to all that. Also, seeing how Kurt deals with the Duets episodes and pulls together the Le Jazz Hot performance was wonderful (and subsequently heartbreaking when people don’t get the message).

Sidenote, I love the friendship between Kurt and Tina and also between Kurt and Mike, especially in comparasion to the rest of Glee club. (Mike and Tina are pretty much my favorites besides Kurt and Blaine, so I’m glad they were there for Kurt.)

I’m pretty intrigued with how Carole was characterized in this. I mean, most (pretty much all?) fics make her such a supportive and awesome stepmom and have the happy Hudmel family thing going on, but I’m actually more interested in how that dynamic isn’t there in this because that feels more plasible to me.

Basically this fic is everything I could have hoped for to explore Kurt’s character in the second season. And the ending just makes me want Kurt to go off to Dalton and be wonderful and happy there. (And really, to never go back to McKinkey because, even though I know that is inevitable on the show, I would rather Kurt stay at Dalton!) Also, the fact that the author said they are working on a sequel for this? So much AWESOME!
