Summary: A fill for this GKM prompt. AU after The Break Up. Blaine finds out that he’s pregnant after Kurt breaks up with him (with Kurt’s child, no less). He tries telling Kurt about it, but Kurt refuses to talk to him. Blaine decides to finish his senior year at home and give the baby up for adoption. Only he doesn’t. He ends up keeping the baby — a daughter — and takes her to New York with him when he leaves for college. He raises her partially on his own with some help from his parents, and tries to juggle parenthood, school, and work. And everything works out okay for a little over two years — until he runs into Kurt.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Glee, etc.

It’s Administrative Professionals Day, so big shout-out to all you admin pros out there. Fun fact: The secretary bird didn’t get its name from its administrative skills. It’s theorized that “secretary” is borrowed from a French corruption of the Arabic saqr-et-tair or “hunter-bird.”
Opening Night confirmed for me that “Don’t Stop Believin’” is no longer Glee’s singular theme song. “People” held the same spot in the repilot (New New York) as “Don’t Stop Believin’” held in the Pilot and has joined it as the show’s theme song.
Rachel worked hard and got her fill and thrill with critical success in her role of roles in Opening Night, but the episode really emphasized Rachel’s social success. She is a person who needs people. Her people. And so she is lucky.
