Ambition is not something that comes after success strikes but, rather, is what helps a performer get there in the first place. Case in point, Chris Colfer, who became a household name when Fox’s Glee first premiered in 2009, had already been busy working on writing Struck By Lightning way before Kurt Hummel came into his life. It’s a case of full circle that the story he worked on years ago is finally coming to theaters with Colfer not only the screenwriter but also in the lead role.
In the coming of age film directed by Brian Donnelly (Saved!), Colfer plays teenaged Carson Phillips, who has a less than idyllic life with an absent father (Dermot Mulroney), a mother (Allison Janney) who likes to spend her days drinking and popping pills, and a thankless job running the school newspaper that only he cares about. The film also stars Rebel Wilson, Christina Hendricks, Allie Grant, Sarah Hyland and acting legend Polly Bergen.
AfterElton sat down with Colfer at the film’s press junket day in Beverly Hills this past weekend to talk about the origins of the film as well as what the future holds on Glee for the still-broken-up Kurt and Blaine (Darren Criss).

Updated gkm fill. An AU where Blaine is a former boxer with some pent up frustrations and Kurt is a yoga instructor who may be able to help him with his problem. This is the last chapter and is now complete! Thanks to gleekto for looking this part over for me. Start at the beginning here
It had really only been a few months, but it felt like years since Blaine had been in the ring. Blaine punched a few times in the air, ducked and bobbed against an invisible opponent with the familiar hollow thumping of his feet, the satisfying give of the floor. Imagined covering every inch of the ring going after some vicious and unrelenting opponent. Fighting back. Defending himself. Feeling like he would never be afraid or alone or tormented by his past ever again.
Until he did.

Anonymous asked you: Kurt twists his ankle while walking in boots with a bigger heel than he’s used to. Maybe Blaine warned him not to wear them?
theaudienceiscalling asked you: after the “kiss you whenever and wherever”, kurt finally gets up the courage to ask blaine to kiss his feet.
“I appreciate you for not saying ‘I told you so,’” Kurt says, wincing as Blaine helps him elevate his foot onto a pillow and rests the ice pack over his ankle. Kurt shivers, but the cold helps distract from the pain, at least.
Blaine gives Kurt a pitying look, fingers stroking slowly over the swollen, tender skin. “Just because I haven’t said it yet doesn’t mean I’m not going to say it at all,” Blaine tells him after a minute, and even though his voice is still too soft to be serious, Kurt groans.
“You were right, Blaine. I was wrong. The Catwoman boots were too adventurous and now I’m paying for it.” Kurt pouts at his boyfriend. “I don’t suppose you have any painkillers left over from your eye surgery, do you?”
“I have advil, ice packs, and kisses,” Blaine says sternly, leaning forward to kiss the tip of Kurt’s nose. He’s smiling when he pulls back, though, and Kurt returns the smile, the pain in his ankle slightly numbed. Though that may just be the ice pack.
