You know how I said it would take me a long time to process this episode? Yeah, still going.

Here are some thoughts of self-acceptance and the possibility of forgiveness with a dash of "Teenage Dream" and fairies.

Oh! And before I forget; the painting on the building outside Kurt & Rachel’s window changed between 4x03 and 4x04. I don’t have screen caps, but in 4x03 it reads S-E-? (X or W?) and in 4x04 it’s something purple. Might be a detail to look out for, if it changes often? I need to rewatch the episode, but can’t quite manage it yet.

So I know I've mentioned before that the hippo can symbolize emotional journeys. I woke up with some new insight (or crazy, if you're not inclined to ruminate over these things) regarding the patterns of its use and significance in Kurt's story.

I have not had my coffee yet, so bear with me!

I'll just add to this post as things occur to me.

some spoilery stuff too )

I'll try to toss together some thoughts on 4x02 at some point. Mostly I'm just digging on the NY is Heaven (But Kurt had to bring it to Rachel somehow?) confirmation we got in the episode and just loving Blaine and Brittany and everything about this show in S4 so far (still lukewarm on Britney Spears' music, but whatever).

I've fallen a bit behind with both writing and comment replies this week (distracted by the DNC), so I'll be getting to things a bit later than I'd like while I focus on getting my latest (but apparently not last) chapter of ITWOS done.

I have a draft, but it sucks, and it looks like I'm not going to have any trouble getting to 8 parts to satisfy my Fibonacci pattern. :) I swear, finishing this fic is like approaching an asymptote. Or, it's like there's this weird decompression algorithm my brain runs every time I go from outline to prose. To think I thought it was only going to be ~20K at most when I started! Oh my god.

Oh! And! Very brief Kurt wardrobe meta )

Glee's costuming is endlessly fascinating; I enjoyed this piece.

I am presently a most unsociable social slug, and I apologize. As I get closer to the end of my big fic, my brain is getting more and more restless and anxious, so I am really trying hard to stay on task before my brain bounces off on some tangential, avoidant frolic from which it does not wish to return.

Man, I need to organize my tags better.

I think this is one of the best write ups of Blaine's character I've read. It's also an excellent write up of the experience of depression. Without getting into TMI-land, I have a long, complicated history with depression, and Blaine really pings me as a fellow sufferer. I don't know that he's had a major episode yet, but the signs are all there that he will.

I nearly wrote a thing about Blaine and depression yesterday, because it's a difficult point in my writing in my big fic presently. But this essay helped clear my head, so I'll just say "What lookninja's said" and point. This line resonates with me particularly strongly (it's one of the metaphors I frame the illness with in my head): "Depression is a war" It's good Blaine is a fighter.

Okay, so you remember Kurt's run for senior class president? There were the posters of him riding the unicorn and then a comparison Kurt made between himself and JFK? What do these have to do with each other?

Well, this exists.

On the moon! Which does crazy things to my pattern matching software that I'll keep to myself for now.

(Man, I need to set up crossposting on dreamwidth)

An attempt at meta, sorta. I posted this over on dreamwidth and thought I'd toss it up here too.

So I have kind of a head canon thing for Kurt as the Egyptian Thoth* (magician, boundary crosser extraordinaire, presider over ceremony & ritual [e.g., weddings, funerals, coronations, judgement of the soul] healer, arbiter of death & resurrection), who is associated strongly with the Greek Hermes, and I just spotted Kurt in these shoes on the Fashion of Glee blog. More Kurt + wings/birds/flying, which is even extra neat in my brain given the Kurt's travel by airplane spoilers du jour.

*Thoth/Hermes is like the primo Jungian animus archetype. Oh, is it worth mentioning, Thoth is a bird (Ibis headed)? ETA: Also Odin, whose symbol is a raven. Kurt wears a raven brooch in "Goodbye".


Also, while I'm thinking about Kurt & wings, here are a few bits relevant to ITWOS: Cupid and Psyche.

meta-y & self-indulgent blather about my big fic )

eta: I'm a little behind schedule with writing this week, but have good traction today, so I hope I have the next part of ITWOS ready soon, but it may not be posted over the weekend. <3
