Rating: PG-13 for implied sexiness and Cooper Anderson's existence.
Summary: AU. When Blaine, bastard son of the king, meets Kurt during Samhain, or the Festival of the Dead, he never suspects that his newfound friend is cursed. When he learns about the curse, however, he vows to do whatever he can to break the curse--even if it means doing what everyone around him believes is impossible.
A/N: Oh my GOD this is long, and had, at one point, eight different endings before this one. I finally settled on a happy ending, but I could have easily gone for the heart-crushing angst, so I might put up the alternate ending some day.
(Can it be vintage Klaine AU week yet? I want to write about hippie!Blaine giving blowjobs instead. Can it be that week next? -_-)
Anders—mountainous kingdom, Blaine’s homeland.
Merula—Latin for blackbird, Kurt’s kingdom.
Samhain: Celtic fire festival, where it was thought the dead walked the Earth for a week. It’s where we get our Halloween/All Spirits Day celebration.
