It's a little bit meta, this feeling inside. I'm not one of those who can easily hide.... ;)

Ah, more Glee fic. And this time, in defense of (some) of the canon of 2x09. SPOILERS 

 
Title: Big Fish Meet Different Pond
Author: ladybugkay
Fandom: Glee
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine pre-slash
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1211
Spoilers/Warnings: through 2x09 “Special Education”; warning for meta; angst
Summary: Wes hasn’t made up his mind yet about their newest Warbler. Wes POV.
Disclaimer: Oh, Ryan Murphy and Fox and all those other wealthy people own the characters. I get nothing for this.
Note: There seems to be a lot of negative reaction toward Blaine and the Warblers and Dalton in general after this episode, and while I can absolutely understand it, and am not entirely comfortable myself with the way the writers chose to go in the ep, I don’t think the Dalton boys are entirely in the wrong. I love Kurt, but let’s step outside his POV for a moment. That’s what this is an attempt to be, anyway. Yes, this is meta. 
   
   
                                                    
Wes doesn’t know what he thinks about Kurt Hummel. He knows Blaine is heels over head for the kid, knows Kurt can sing like no one else in the group, and he knows the bullying must have gotten pretty bad for Kurt to transfer here in the space of a day.
 
And he knows precisely who is responsible for convincing his father – who is always at least halfway across the globe – to get his lawyers to whip up an “Urgent Circumstances” scholarship tailor-made for someone who needs to get the hell out of public school in a hurry but doesn’t have a lot of money to make that happen.
 
Heels. Over. Head.
 
But Wes also knows that Kurt doesn’t seem to recognize what professionalism means aside from competing his heart out for solos. He’s still the new kid to a group based on elaborate harmonies and vocal cohesion. Sure, they have their soloist giving it all he’s got in terms of personality and punch, but their identity as a group, what makes the Warblers unique and distinct from all the other show choirs, is how seamlessly all the other singers integrate their voices to form the foundation of their sound. They’re not the New Directions. The New Directions are an amazing choir, with tons of energy and heart, and their performances are always joyful and showcase the individuality of their performers. And that’s great, that’s wonderful, they own that style. Just like Vocal Adrenaline own their technical precision and sheer flash and impeccable style.
 
But the Warblers are like neither of those groups, and Wes wasn’t lying when he told Kurt he appreciated his enthusiasm and his ideas, but the kid needs to realize he can’t just come in here and start changing the entire identity of the Warblers, telling them how they need to be more like the New Directions.
 
It isn’t that Kurt’s audition wasn’t good enough for him to get the solo and lead at Sectionals, or even that he was too new for them to give it to him. It’s that they decided weeks ago on “Hey, Soul Sister” – my god, can you imagine if they didn’t have their songs chosen this close to Sectionals? What kind of slap-dash affair does Kurt think this is, anyway? So as fantastic as Kurt’s voice and stage presence are, they simply don’t suit the song the Council has selected. Wes can see how disappointed Kurt is by their decision, and he can tell by the expression on his face that Kurt thinks he should have gotten the solo and is wondering if they expect him to become some kind of clone in order to fit in. Wes finds himself hoping Kurt realizes that’s not the case, that they don’t want Kurt to become someone else, just to adapt himself to a new style of performing when it comes to a glee club. Whoever he wants to be as a person, however he wants to sing outside of the Warblers, is entirely up to Kurt, and Wes, for one, will be more than happy to be friends with him. Nor is he the only one. David and Kurt are well on their way to being friends, and Adam has latched onto Kurt like he’s finally figured out who he wants to be when he grows up.
 
Blaine, of course, is already halfway to monogrammed towels and shared meals in their own private breakfast nook, at least in his head. Not that he doesn’t already consider Kurt a good friend, because he does, that’s clear; it’s just that it’s easy to see how much he wants him and Kurt to be more than just good friends.
 
Sectionals gives Wes a bad feeling about how this is all going to end, though, and he hopes like hell Blaine doesn’t get his heart broken over this kid. What happens is that while Blaine is killing it, as always, out in front shining and dancing like he’s doing it for the sheer joy of it; while David has that grin on his face he always does when he’s singing, the one that grows bigger whenever he can see Blaine, because those two just feed off each other in performances; while every other Warbler is grooving along and having fun, wide smiles all around because they do this because they love it; while all this is going on, Wes can’t help but notice that Kurt isn’t giving his best shot.
 
He’s seen this kid perform, he’s looked up old competition footage of him on YouTube after Blaine flat-out told them they had to take him to Sectionals even though he’d had only a couple of days rehearsal, and Wes knows what Kurt can do, the kind of fire he shows when he’s performing. But at Sectionals, as one of the Warblers now, Kurt is half-assing it. He looks uncomfortable and unhappy, and when he finally does start to smile, he looks like it hurts him to do it. He doesn’t even smile genuinely when Blaine sings right to him again, and Wes still remembers the awestruck, adoring look the kid had on his face that first day as Blaine serenaded him with “Teenage Dream.” Wes can’t be sure, but there are times during the song that he isn’t even convinced Kurt is actually singing at all, especially on their second number.
 
It’s disappointing. Wes is disappointed in Kurt. If he didn’t want to be here, if it bothered him that much to be part of the background harmony of a song he hadn’t chosen, then Kurt didn’t have to perform. They didn’t force him to compete. They welcomed him to their group, to perform as one of them, and they trusted him to be in this all the way and not undermine them by not giving a hundred percent. They all know what Jesse St. James did to that girl Rachel last year, and after Kurt’s rather inept attempt at infiltration, Wes (and David and Blaine, though especially Blaine) had been more than convinced that Kurt wasn’t out to sabotage them. But Wes can’t help thinking, as their tie with New Directions is announced, that even though what Kurt did – or didn’t do – can’t be put into the same class as Jesse’s manipulation and betrayal, it still feels a little like that.
 
Kurt has issues, but Wes knows that so does Blaine, and just because he acts like some life coach with no problems of his own doesn’t mean Blaine hasn’t lived through a hell of a lot of his own bad times, both before and after he came to Dalton. Blaine is Wes’s friend, a good friend, and even though Kurt seems like a good guy, Wes is still reserving judgment. On Blaine’s behalf.
 
Wes knows Blaine is heels over head for the guy; he knows Kurt doesn’t want to be here and is afraid he’s traded his individuality and unique identity for mere physical safety and a bunch of rules that chafe; and he knows it’s only a matter of time before Kurt transfers back to McKinley and breaks that fragile bubble of fairtytale romance that’s all that is protecting Blaine’s heart.
 
So Wes doesn’t know what he thinks about Kurt Hummel. Not really. 




 



Also, what is up with this LJ font? What happened to it and how do I change it back?

Oh I like this alot!
It's not a happy denial fic, but rather a very good explanation of what Wes could be thinking and in fact realistically I hope this is somewhere in the region of what the show intends to do.
I love your Wes voice and this is just great.

Thanks! I was a little worried I'd be facing flaming arrows just for writing this. But I could kind of see where the Warblers were coming from in this ep, even though the writers went a little overboard with the compare-and-contrast with New Directions so clearly intended to show off how wonderful Kurt's old glee club is, and I just had to write something.

I'm glad you liked it!

Also, your icon makes me smile.

I really loved this.

I'll admit that I haven't actually seen this episode yet (horrors, I know, but my roommate was watching something else on our only tv). However, I've watched a bunch of the sneak peeks and promos and such, and I was really disappointed by what I saw from the Warblers, particularly Wes.

Your story, however, shone an entirely new light on the situation. It explains and smooths over a lot of things with which was having issues. It just makes the Warblers and Wes a whole lot more likeable and closer to what I want them to be. Very nicely done.

Re: I really loved this.

I confess, that's what I was trying to do with this: reconcile canon with what I wanted the Warblers to be. Surprsingly, it wasn't that hard to do.

I'm glad you approve.

I didn't feel like Kurt was half-assing it. He came across to me as nervous. The advantage of New Directions is that they don't have to be precisely in sync for the overall style to work. And The Warblers are acapella, which I don't know that he's done before. For less than a week, I thought he did well.

If Kurt's still looking like a deer in the headlights in the next episode which is, I think, supposed to be about a month from now (in show time, not in when it's being shown), I could understand Wes's perspective better.

And just so it's clear -- I like the story. *G* It's a valid and well-written pov piece.

Oh, hey, I agree with a lot of your points. And I wouldn't necessarily say that Kurt was half-assing it, not intentionally at the very least. But I think that the other Warblers might have a few issues with Kurt's performance.

Still, I'm pleased you didn't hate this!

From: [identity profile] rrrowr.livejournal.com
I like this. I think it's a very good take on a point of view that needs to be pointed out with a lot of people ragging on how Dalton was absolutely perfect. I like your take on Wes' character, which, like a lot of the Warblers, I feel has been turned on its head in fanon. The Wes you have here is collected and thoughtful and observant, like any council member and upperclassman should be, and I really appreciate seeing it.

Thanks for writing this. :)

From: [identity profile] rrrowr.livejournal.com
And just carrying on with my thoughts because I'm reading some of the comments here and I want to say more.

I think the point of Wes' observation is that he's seen footage of Kurt's performances, that he's seen Kurt do a lot of varied and passionate things on the stage. By comparison, a little bit of shuffling and harmonizing should be a piece of cake. Besides which, Wes also notices Kurt's discomfort and unhappiness and is comparing it to the cheerful grooving of the other Warblers, who are happy because they're doing something they love. So I can see how the Wes here can look at Kurt's unhappiness and wonder why he isn't comforted by doing something he loves.

But yeah -- anyway -- again, glad to see this being written. ♥ ♥

Woo! I like it and I totally agree with everything. At first I was a little underwhelmed by all the Dalton scenes, but as I gain some distance from the episode and think about it, I think they did go about things the right way.

Love your Wes voice and thank you for this :)

No, thank you. I'm just relieved not to be tarred and feathered, so far. I don't agree with everything the writers did in the ep, especially with regard to one or two scenes with Blaine, but until they completely destroy my image of the Dalton boys, I'm willing to work with what they give me.

I don't know what to think of Dalton yet because I'm not sure what route the show wants to take. Still, I like the fact you showed that there really is a good and reasonable version of what we saw.

Although I think it was just nerves, I can see why would Wes think he's half-assing it.

From: [identity profile] ladybugkay.livejournal.com
Thanks.

Like you, I'm holding back on my judgment of Dalton until we get a few more episodes in as evidence, but for now, I'll continue to hope that it's not going to be vilified solely for the sake of showing off the New Directions and how much more wonderful they are.

This is a great look inside Wes' head. He's not the happy go lucky fanon!Wes we've gotten used to the past couple of weeks but he seems very real and quite loyal to Blaine which earns tons of points. Plus his reasoning for shooting Kurt's ideas down makes very good sense, though it's hard to remember that when you see Kurt go a bit icy/sadfaced. Great read!

Thanks.

Yes, it's very difficult to remain objective when Chris Colfer gets sad-faced. He makes you want to cheer him up and go yell at whoever made him upset.

And I ADORE your icon. That's some major pretty right there. That man is just too gorgeous to be real, isn't he?

I loved this, it's a really great explanation of the episode besides the popular "OMG the writers suck" (that was actually one of my first thoughts, haha). Basically this is just spot on and I love it and I'm sorry I don't have anything more eloquent or constructive to say. :D

No worries; this is great feedback. Thank you!

It's entirely possible that I'll be thinking "OMG the writers suck!" in the next few weeks if this is all they give us of the Dalton boys, but my first instinct is always to try to understand whatever motivated the characters to do whatever crazy-ass things the writers make them do.

Hello! I really enjoyed this look at Wes, Dalton, Blaine and the Warblers in general.

I think what tends to happen is that fandom has this really wonderful, magical idea of what a character or a place is going to be like based off not very much actual cannon, and then there's a lot of disappointment when you run into the reality of the situation (because no place is perfect, unless Kurt gets written out of the show he has to leave Dalton eventually and there has to be a reason for that, and Dalton is about as far from Kurt's old high school as you can get in just about every way so there is going to be a HUGE culture shock).

What you've done is very cool, and you've broken out the various character reactions nicely. Kurt actually says it in the episodes 'There's a different energy in there. Not bad. Just different.'

I really loved how you pointed out that besides Kurt the Warblers are actually all having a grand old time when they perform. Whether it's Teenage Dream or Hey Soul Sister they are rocking their songs. They look just as jazzed as New Directions does when they perform, they just have a different style.

Wes reserving judgment on Kurt also came off as something he was doing for his good friend who he'd rather not see get crushed.

So...well done!

One of the things that struck me about the Warblers was the apparent hypocrisy between words and deed.

Kurt sang what I considered a very restrained solo (especially for him!) and was even cautioned against using simple hand motions. You even see him clutching his hands at the end so he doesn't use them. And was told to "tame it down" (by the most unrestrained warbler there is) and "get with the team" (says Mr. "I Sing 100% of the Lead in EVERY SINGLE SONG").

He was probably afraid of blinking wrong at sectionals! And he's in front, so he can't even look at someone else to see what they are doing! I can totally see him thinking "am I going overboard? Is this too much? Are they going to lose because of me?" and not enjoying himself or letting loose even an inch.

The funniest thing? If he had toned it down, wouldn't he have not been as tormented at McKinley??

Sadly, one of the bad things about Glee is how little they develop their supporting characters. Even some of their "leads" are little more than cardboard cutouts so far, with no distinct personalities. *cough* Mike Chang *cough*

Thank you SO much for writing this fic. I know we, as a fandom, let out a wail of despair when fun!Wes was killed off in the last episode and stern!Wes took his place. Even though I'm as disappointed as everyone else, I'm holding out for Wes. I'm hoping he'll turn out to be a really sweet and quirky guy after all.

So yah, I appreciate you writing this fic from his POV. His thoughts makes sense, because omg of course they'd have their song selections made for sectionals already! This isn't McKinley anymore where nobody can even seem to stay on top of things. I also like the idea of Wes noticing that Kurt wasn't totally with it during "Hey Soul Sister". If Rachel could notice it in the audience, then Wes could probably notice it right next to Kurt.

Yes. Who picks brand new songs for a major competition mere days before, with hardly any rehearsal time? And I think they were honouring Kurt by allowing him a solo audition, even though there is no way his voice is right for the solo of "Hey, Soul Sister."

Also, I'm still heading out hope for all of Dalton.

I really liked this! While I could understand Kurt being completely thrown by just how different the Warblers are to New Directions and his seeming fear of having to give up who he is just to fit in at Dalton just as much as at McKinley, only in a different way, I totally get the Warblers too. So I just sincerely hope that Kurt will get to see that it's not always a competition and that true teamwork can be awesome too. In other words: I hope he gets to grow up a little.

Anyway. I loved it!

All due respect to Kurt - I love him and probably empathize with him the most and take his side almost without thinking - but there is an element of...I don't want to say arrogance...more like presumption in his attempt to redirect the Warblers toward a more New Directions feel.

The episode did tend a bit more toward the reality of Kurt starting another school and trying to acclimatize to an entirely new way of doing things. I liked that about it, much as I had been hoping for hearts and flowers and shining fairies of the forest. ;)
