Summary: AU. Blaine Anderson lived under another name for almost nine years with an abusive man he was forced to pretend was his father. He always thought his own family had given up on him, but now that he's found out the majority of his life was spent believing a lie, he has to try to reconcile the life he had with the life that was taken away from him. Sequel to Looking for a Happy Ending.

A/N: I still feel more than a little out of my element writing this sort of thing. If it works at all, you can probably thank Spring Awakening's "Touch Me," which my iTunes account informs me I listened to on a loop 63 times while I was writing this (6 times more and it would have been the best thing that's ever happened to me, but what are you gonna do?).

Thanks so much to all of you who have stuck with this story for so long! It means more than I can say that you haven't forgotten about it while I've been trying to wrap the whole thing up. I'm not convinced I'm done playing in this world just yet, either, so don't be surprised if you see some one-shots popping up from time to time :)

A/N: The conversation between Cynthia and Blaine is not inspired by "Superboy and the Invisible Girl," but as I was finishing the scene, I realized I was singing it to myself, so... do with that information what you will.

The week heading into the trial is hell for Blaine. )

A/N: Chapter five is coming along VERY slowly and I'm sorry about that, everyone. I've been crazy busy lately, but I promise you, I AM working on it every day and it will be posted eventually. In the meantime, have this! It is a fluffy inconsequential throwaway piece looking at the events of the very last scene (you know the one I'm talking about) from a very, VERY different PoV. If you need any warning for this section at all, I'd say there are mildly homophobic statements made from one of those types of person who can't speak without saying something mildly offensive to anyone.

AN - Huge thanks goes out to my Tumblr people for helping me brainstorm cartoon characters. The ones I used came from them, and you can read all of their awesome suggestions here. I'm sure you all know it, but if any of you are in the mood for a little Disney, here's the relevant song referred to in that scene. You know you love it :D

And Kurt's roommate, for those of you are interested, is the written as an improbably intelligent combination of two Ryan Hansen characters: Dick from
Veronica Mars and Kyle from Party Down.

A/N - I'm changing up the format for this section of the story! So exciting! I'm taking my cue from the brilliant AU J2 fic The Doors of Time (which seriously, everyone should try to read it at least once if you watch SPN or not because it's that good. End plug), and when the time comes for the music, I am going to link up to a streaming audio of it, and if you don't have the Shockwave to listen to it, I'll also include a link to the download as well. This way, you just need to click on the play button when you see the player, or if that doesn't work, right-click and open in new window so it can play in the background while you read. I thought it might be an easier way to introduce the song for this particular scene, as it's quite crucial for the moment.

Also, remember this delightful little picture? It's a piece of fanart, so it's not canon, but Enafdemderredmedfane on Tumblr was wonderful enough to go back and find it for me when I was blanking on Warbler names. Any unfamiliar names you see came from here :)

A/N: TRIGGER WARNINGS ADDED - This is relevant for the very first section, so please make sure you've looked through them. I don't want to set anyone off. There are is discussion of child abuse (sexual and physical), some homophobia, and talk of cutting. I'll try to add these to the masterpost today as well.

This section is going to start looking a little like an acceptance speech from now on, but I've got a lot of people who helped me sort some things out about adopting older children in the States. There are a few areas where I took a couple liberties, but a solid 95% of Kurt's and Blaine's forays into adoption are true to life as I could make it. [livejournal.com profile] canuckpagali and [livejournal.com profile] callmerayray especially gave me a TON of information about this, and I couldn't have written it without either of them. They are both crazy awesome :D


At first, they have such terrible luck with the adoption agency it almost seems like the universe doesn't want them to be parents )

A/N: I honestly don't know if parts of this section can be considered triggery or not. Just know going into it that there are scenes of a sexual nature that can almost be considered dub-con, simply because of the mental state both participants are in when it occurs. How's THAT for a warning?

A/N: God. I've apparently the rest of this story will make up for the lack of music in it to date. So! Here is the dead girlfriend song Finn was talking about. Ironically, this is another song from the 1950s, so Trent is not the only one who thinks Blaine was made to sing oldies. The song at the root of the Faberry UST is "Tower of Song" by the ever-awesome Leonard Cohen. Contrary to what he does, it IS possible to sing the song instead of speak it. Irish tenors are known for singing depressing songs, often ones told from the perspective of a woman. "Danny Boy" is probably the best-known example.

'Dude,' Finn says. 'I don't get you.' )

A/N: This is the part where Blaine goes from being ever-so-vaguely like Darren Criss to, well, traumitized and broody Darren Criss look-a-like, I suppose. His new hair is this look of Darren's, and then of course there is the introduction of the Disney element. You've heard the song before, but here is a video of his audition number if you want to hear it again. Here is "Why Do Fools Fall In Love," which isn't actually sung, but I'm linking it because I like it. Deal with it! :)

A/N: Extra (extra) waring for this part: Blaine breaks out the "F" word (not the sometimes-fun "F" word). I don't know why I feel the need to add the extra warnings for it, but I really do. Maybe because I felt like I was going to be sick every time I read what I was making him say about himself? Internalized homophobia is running rampant here, so brace yourselves before you get started. It's not pretty

The day everything changes, and doesn't, is the day his parents find out he's gay. )

A/N: Again I feel like I'm being super anti-drug in this section of the story (maybe it's a theme for all my part twos in this 'verse), but I feel like I need to make the comment that the problem (hopefully) being addressed here isn't recreational drug use so much as it's self-medicating, which in itself isn't always a bad thing, but if you're doing it for an extended period to deal with any kind of trauma or condition, it can get dangerous very quickly. I've added self-medicating to the trigger list (it just gets longer and longer haha), but I wanted to draw attention to it here since this is probably the worst it's going to get.

And speaking of the trigger list, remind yourself of its contents before your read these next two parts because the residual trauma angst kicks up a notch for them.

A/N: I've given up trying to make sense of Blaine's age because this show's character continuity drives me nuts. For this fic, he is Kurt's age, and Kurt at any rate is going into senior year. The end.

Also, there are now spoilers from the early episodes of season three, which I hadn't planned on and as a result never warned you about, but season thee Quinn suddenly showed up on Blaine's doorstep as I was writing and she won't leave. I think she wants someone to fix her clusterfuck of a storyline (yeah, I said it). I'll see what I can do ;)

Apologies if I misrepresent
True Blood. My betas and I don't watch it so I gave myself a crash course, but I don't know how accurate it is.

EDIT: Eep! I almost forgot, but if you've never heard it before, the song future Kurt sings is "I've Got a Little List". Unfortunately it's almost impossible to find a version without updated lyrics, but the good thing is every version you find is funny.


Kurt tells him that his biggest failing is his complete and total inability to pay attention to the world around him. )

A/N: The news segments that Blaine watches in this section are based on shows like The View (there have been a lot of them over the years) and their frankly disturbing Hot Topic segments or whatever they get called. I understand that controversy drives up ratings, but I've never understood why one of the women always has to say the grossest and most offensive thing imaginable and then doggedly defend her "opinion" even if it's painfully obvious it's stupid (remember "Rape rape"?). The final segment isn't my material at all, it is a loosely paraphrased arguement by Known Asshole Bill O'Reilly, who honest-to-God said this about Shawn Hornbeck after he'd been found and brought back to his parents. You can watch it here if you're interested, but be warned: it will make you want to throw things at your monitor (not just because of the somewhat obnoxious repitition used by the editor).

Finally, the tarantula toy. I don't need to tell you about this at all, and don't click on the link if you have spider issues, but my hand to God, this is the best toy I have ever seen in my
life and yes, I DO want one. Just look at it!

AN: Police Process, you guys. I don't know what it is or how it works. So anything that Detective Warren says that is along the lines of "Respect my knowledge because I am a trained professional and I fight crime every day" is pure bullshit. I have no idea if any of it is accurate or not. Sorry in advance if it pulls anyone out of the story when she says or does something and you're like, "Hey, that's not how it worked when I was placed in a convent under Witness Protection after that one time I saw my mobster boyfriend murder an associate in Reno had my house broken into."

For most people it would be strange to walk into a room knowing that everyone knows your life story. )

Summary: AU. Blaine Anderson hasn't been Blaine Anderson for 8 years. He doesn't remember much about his old family and his life before he moved in with the man he calls his father. Together they move from town to town, always drifting before Blaine can get too familiar with his surroundings. Then one day they end up in Lima, Ohio, and Blaine finds himself questioning everything he thought he knew.

A/N: This is the final piece in the first half of this story! Thanks so much to all of you who commented and took the time to read. I'm thrilled that you all liked it (well, not so much liked it, given the subject matter, but...you know). The sequel should be beginning to be posted this fall, but how quickly it will happen is going to depend on my workload at school.

As requested, here is a link to a PDF version of this story. Apologies if the formatting is a little off for ereaders - I've never made a PDF for this purpose before, so I was just sort of guessing on how to make it as user-friendly as possible, based on how this sort of thing goes for me when I have to reformat PDFs into EPUB format.
EDIT: I just looked through this thing and saw how many typos and errors I never fixed in the original Word document (which is where I made this from). I've redone the PDF using the text that ended up getting posted and isn't so messy. Please download this new one if you want the version without (as many) words randomly missing from sentences :)

If anyone is interested in reading more about the real story much of this is based on, you can do so here, but be warned, Steve Stayner's story doesn't end as happily as this one does. He did save the life of another little boy and they did both get away and grow up to be successful, happy adults with families of their own, but it's sort of one of those scenarios where the universe takes one group of people and in the grand schemes of everyone's lives, craps all over them. Their lives after the papers stop following them get really depressing for completely unrelated reasons, is what I'm trying to say.

Finally, if any of you start thinking the final scene of this story uses any phrases that sound suspicously familiar, I have a confession to make: I had two songs stuck in my head almost non-stop while I was writing the scene, just because they fit so well for the situation. One I'm using for the sequel so I won't tell you what it is (nyah!) but the other one for anyone even vaguely interested is right here. As a bonus, Darren Criss is the one performing it and any Starkid fans reading this probably already know what the song is going to be. Go watch it again anyhow. You know you want to :)


Detective Warren thanks Blaine for the information and pulls a piece of paper from one of the files as she gets up to leave and talk with one of the other officers. )
