Hi Michelle! Can you PLEASE look at the Klaine Peter Pan scene and CrissColfer the crap out of it! PLEASE AND THANK YOU!
Hi there! This made me smile - and you asked for one of my favorite scenes between Chris and Darren - so heck yeah! (and man how can two boys explain so much in a scene less than a minute long - see what can happen when a writer writes out of passion and not ego - hmmm?!) (hint- Ryan- hint)
The biggest thing about this scene that strikes me and makes it one of the most honest klaine and CC moments is the setting itself.
it was written in the dressing room - backstage - on opening night. (this is a known area of safety and need for both Chris and Darren - with histories in performing and all that means to them)
- The setting represents the calm in the storm
despite all the swirls around them, the chaos that tends to consume their environment and can be overwhelming and distracting if they let it - they find their peace -they find their sanctum - and it always includes each other. It is their space - for just them - and they protect it.
But take note - the door is wide open - they do not close others out or stop someone from looking in - they are not hiding.
- Their demeanor and voices are key
- they are both calm, collected and at peace with the situation. There movements are not manic or rushed (despite that they are putting finishing touches on a costume) for a show that is clearly minutes away from starting.
- The Dialogue - although simple - screams and echoes intent and honesty
They display simple banter and teasing without malice - there isn’t a need to outshine our out do one another - they are equals in every way - they understand what is important and what is not.
They will always put each other first - and this alone has made CC as strong as they are.
- The moment in the mirror
This was always my “single second” - that I could watch over and over - it is the moment you FELT the undeniable connection between them.
Daren was focused down on the costume - Chris looks up in the mirror to see Darren and so thankful for his presence smiles - Darren feels it and looks up at Chris.
What makes it an intimate moment is they are NOT looking directly at one another - they don’t have to - Eye contact is not needed when you are speaking with your heart and soul.
- The kiss and love you
it was kept simple, sweet and sincere.
it represents ALL that they mean to one another - large shows of affection are not needed all the time when it is felt as deeply as they two feel it.
- "Gladys has been having a hard time keeping solid foods down"
I am NOT convinced that this was in the script - I have always thought that Chris might have improvised it - Darren’s face at 44 - 45seconds.
They make each other laugh constantly and thrive on catching each other off guard
Darren takes in what he said - reacts - turn his torso away but looks again - it is his honest reaction to the words - and his taken by surprise is genuine
Thanks for the prompt hon
I have several others I am still working on - I promise - things have been a little crazy around here - but I am catching up!
Darren followed: Ana Gasteyer, The New York Times, Buzzfeed, The AV Club, Vulture, Will Forte, Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennet
I want actual ideas, Kurt.
I just have to say, please, please, PLEASE always tell someone where you’re going and what time you’re going to be back if you’re going out alone if you’re a minor or going to a place you’re unfamiliar with. You may think its dumb to have to tell your parents exact details but it can save your life.
What about some sick-sleepy Chris?? uwu
Chris was sick. He had been working himself too much and, while Darren did his best to tell him to just take some time off, it never worked. Besides, Darren was working himself sick too, so it sounded really hypocritical even to his own ears.
They had woken up rather early for a Saturday morning and Chris looked kinda off to him, but groggily said he was just still sleepy. Darren didn’t really buy it, but didn’t say anything.
When Chris ran to the bathroom to throw up the breakfast he just ate, Darren knew he had to do something. He canceled anything they had to do for the whole week – luckily either of them was shooting or had anything really important – and then went to look for Chris, finding him sitting on the floor, paler than usual and his eyes glassy.
Big kittens need love too! My cat gave birth to six kittens last night. At the same time, she adopted our 10-week-old kitten who needed a mother’s love.
