Love Lockdown: I Don’t Think This Is What Kanye Meant

BY BLAINE ANDERSON Posted at 5:48 PM on April 19, 2013

So how did you spend your lockdown?

I’m sure some of you were probably happy you didn’t have to go in to work, or took advantage of having the kids home from school. Maybe you caught up on email, or Tumblr, or got to Level 150 on Candy Crush. Others probably were frustrated because you had a project due, had work left at the office, weren’t prepared to have to entertain young children stuck indoors for an entire day and it not be raining.

And then you have those of us who didn’t even have the luxury of being home.

I am currently sitting in a Cambridge apartment 30 minutes by train away from my own home, on the borrowed computer of my midnight hookup. Last night I was minding my own business, trying to put this awful week behind me with a few glasses of stout at Fritz (they advertise themselves as “Boston’s #1 Gay Sports Bar,” which is easy when you’re the only one) when the text came in; “you want to come over?” He’s a longtime friend who I share a certain brand of comfort with when times are hard. And I think we can all agree this is one of those times.

This morning I woke up to a wicked hangover, a shard of glass in my foot, and a snarky roommate who had the pleasure of informing me that I was stuck. And guess who had to break the news to my host?

There are rules to having a regular hookup partner, the most important one being not to stick around for too long or shit gets weird. Preserve the friendship above all else, even great sex. But when one is forced to by order of the Governor, you make the best of the situation until things can go back to normal. I got a great frittata, discovered a new hair gel, gained a greater appreciation for being far away from worrying parental units, and even worked in a Round Two with my host (what? The sex is great). I even fit in a stealthy errand to Dunkin Donuts; we were out of coffee and caffeine-withdrawal-fueled anarchy was threatening to break out. And as a wise woman told me, “If Dunkies closes, the terrorists win.” We nearly got busted, but I was able to take my aw-shucks Ohio optimism and charm our way out of it, resulting in a nice bonding moment with the roommate (I’ll let you know if détente lasts).

He’s here, by the way…my hookup buddy, I mean. Looking over my shoulder as I write this and laughing his ass off. The roommate is here too, wondering what’s so damn funny. So maybe shit got weird anyway. Weird can be good. Weird can be normal. Hell, with the right person it can even be better than normal.

Until next time...stay Boston Strong, readers.

(Bonus art and soundtrack post)

So I may have cheated, having read this fic before, being the artist of course. But like I said I really loved reading this fic and I really enjoyed creating art for it :). I particularly LOVED the characterisation of Santana in this fic. I thought it was very well done, and there were moments from her that made me crack up laughing so hard.

Of course, I also loved the way you wrote Kurt and Blaine.

I just love it! Well done.

If you haven't already done so, and if anyone else reading this wants to see the full extent of the art that I created for this fic, then please click here. (http://blog.rachelnacilla.com/post/59102683461/a-place-thats-safe-and-warm-by-ms-honeysuckle)

this was adorable, I loved the Beantown spin and the interesting peek into Klaine's parents. Great art too.

Kudos to you for giving us something wonderful (if fictitious) we can relate to the Boston Bombings. I love how Blaine's feelings were sneaking up on him during the course of this fic - and of course I am overjoyed that they were reciprocated (as if). Wonderful Fic!!!
