A little reaction ficlet — takes place during 4x22, after Blaine has spoken to others besides Burt about his proposal idea.
Blaine feels a little guilty for calling Cooper almost as a last resort, but he’s so tired of all the negativity, of everyone telling him he’s crazy, and he really needs his big brother right now. He needs his grandiose ideas and his tireless enthusiasm. He needs someone to tell him to go for it, even if it is a little bit nuts. Isn’t love supposed to be a little bit nuts?
He fidgets with the corner of his duvet as he waits for Cooper to pick up the phone, running the edge between his fingers and twisting it, thumb picking at the stitching. He lets out a sigh and lifts the phone away from his ear, ready to disconnect when he hears the tinny sound of Cooper’s voice greeting him.
“Blainey! Sorry, buddy, I was in the shower.”
“Hey, Coop. I didn’t mean to interrupt anything.”
“Don’t be silly! When do I not want to talk to my baby brother? What’s up?”
Blaine drops the blanket back to the side of the bed and sits up, scooting back until he’s sitting against the headboard. He takes a deep breath. “It’s kind of… Well, it’s important to me. I need to talk to someone. I need some… advice, I guess?”
