Summary: Artie makes a few observations, and has a realisation.

Author's Note: I don't even know. My brain is still randomly spitting out these little flashfic ideas at me, and I seem to be compelled to write them.

Backstage Notes

The show had gone so well that night. Everyone had been on fire, even topping opening night. The standing ovation from the audience said they’d agreed.

Artie rolled contentedly past the backstage area that had been used as the guys’ changing room; Blaine was the only one left, head bent as he tied a shoelace.

“Yo, great job tonight, man,” he called, evidently startling Blaine.

“Oh, hey. Thanks.” Blaine flashed a smile, shrugging a little.

“I’m serious. I don’t know what changed but… last night was good, but you guys just killed it tonight.” And Artie didn’t think the tiny ‘directors’ notes’ he’d given them this afternoon were entirely the cause.

Blaine actually blushed, which seemed a bit extreme. “First night jitters?” he offered, not sounding like he even believed himself.

“You ready, honey?” Artie turned just in time to see Kurt slam to a stop as he noticed his presence. “Umm… hi, Artie.” He was already flushing pink.

“Yeah, I’m ready, we can go” Blaine said, a few tense seconds of silence later. “Same time tomorrow, Artie?”

Artie nodded and twisted to let him past, watching them go.

He wasn’t entirely sure what had just happened, or why it had been so awkward.

His eyes followed them up the dimmed hallway as he puzzled it out. Just before they turned the corner at the end, he saw Kurt reach out and run a hand down Blaine’s back, tucking his thumb into a belt loop and pulling him just a little closer.

Which was… new. They’d been together so long, but he’d hardly ever seen them even bump shoulders or hold hands, let alone something so blatantly intimate. In public.

And not a week ago Blaine had said…

Artie smirked. Looked like maybe someone had taken his advice after all.

I live for comments. Well, I do survive without them. But they make me happy ;)

I love it when they have believable (not over the top) pet names for each other. I will probably die the happiest of fangirl deaths, should they ever call each other honey or sweetheart or babe on the show. /random-ish ramble

And I thought this was lovely!

I agree. I really REALLY want to see them use a pet name on the show just so I can apply it to fan fiction because I never know what sounds right or not.

Totally. I can imagine the three I mentioned earlier, but I usually cringe when I read 'baby' and run away. It would be great to get a canon one!

Choosing a pet name that sounded believable (but also 'cute' enough that Kurt would be a little caught out at being heard using it by Artie) seriously took nearly as long as writing the rest of the fic.

That was cute! Just wish Glee would stop placing them in separate hemispheres for even simple photoshoots. How devastating would it be let them stand on either side of Chewbacca?

Cute, and I second the pet name thing. I'm just WAITING with baited breath for them to use one on the show.

I am firmly of the belief that they're just bursting with pet names in private...

Aaaw this was cute :) And yeah I agree on the pet name thing. Kurt calling Blaine "honey" works the best for me since Chris did that during GleeLive. They could so easily bring that over to the show.

Thanks. Yeah, Glee Live was what swung 'honey' for me in the end.

dfhkjsdf....i loved this to pieces. Especially the little visual of Kurt pulling Blaine closer to his side by his belt loop. Sexy.

Thanks. I seem to be on a little 'through others' eyes' kick at the moment...
