(ok now I’m mad, I wrote an answer and tumblr crashed, sorry if it took a log time to answer)
oh boy, getting a fangirl to talk about her fandom, you are just asking for it aren’t you? I’ll try to make this short and coherent. (TRY)
As you may have picked up by now, Dalton is a Glee fanfic that takes place at Dalton academy, it’s about the boys there and it centers around Kurt Hummel. It’s a Klaine fic, but it feels different that current-glee!klaine. Blaine is a lot more dapper-season2!Blaine, and he’s the same age as Kurt. It goes off canon, but I don’t think anyone who has ever watched glee finds that a bad thing.
I’ll tell you right now that my favourite thing about it is the characters. I truly believe that CP Coulter is unable to write a two dimensional character. Everyone of them (and there are a lot of them) is an onion with complex layers and skeletons in the closet that will make you weep. You think that character is comic relief? a villain? an innocent bystander? WRONG, in a few chapters you’re gonna be holding them in your arms whispering my poor baby.
The fic compares it self to Wonderland and it truly feels like that. You stubble in to this magical no-bullying-everyone-is-really-rich-and-attractive land and it all fun times and giggles and cute songs. Then as you get deeper you start to see the crazy impossible boys as relatable people with problems and flaws who make mistakes but you love them anyway, even more, for it.
There’s a lot of lgtb+ characters ( and I do mean L and G and B and T and Q not just G’s and a couple os L’s), and yeah, most of them are boys, it’s an all boys school, but you still get to meet some awesome kickass ladies.
Also the fandom (and the author) is amazing and really welcoming and nice. I mean we just waited for two years for an update and we’re all here celebrating and discussing theories and making new friends and creating fan work. It think that says a lot about both the quality of the fic and the people in the fandom.
I understand that Dalton might not be everyone’s type of story/writing/fandom/whatever (again, two years waiting… it was a bitch… updates are not very reliable in this fandom) BUT if you do find ANY of what I just said interesting I encourage you to give it a try. At least get to the Twins they will make you laugh you butt out.
And I you even need a cookie or a hug or someone to laugh at that awesome one-liner with you, my askbox is open. :D
