Here is a new story—another harry potter/Glee crossover. And yes I am aware that I already have one in progress this one however is a collaboration between myself and the lovely Cherryteapot. The original idea was Cherryteapot's- who will be further contributing by beta'ing and acting as a sounding board for future plot/character development, while I will be writing and posting said story. This may change in later chapters (my lovely partner in crime may take a stab at writing as well…we will mark it if this should happen). At this stage we are planning for this to be approx. 10 chaps long (although length may change depending on the authors' crazy whims) it's not completely written but we do have a rough outline planned out. Because there are two of us in collaboration here, the update may be a bit slower than some of my other stories (not that YIP has been particularly speedy mind you), but it will not be abandoned. It will be klaine for a lot of the story but the endgame will always be Blam! (blaine/sam)
Warnings: This is slash obviously, like seriously when is it glee and not slash?, probably some swearing, There may be lemon or there might not be it is not completely decided-leave a comment on what you would like to see. I can promise that there will be absolutely no lemon between the brothers. This is not an incest fic! If there is a lemon scene there will be a warning at the top of that chapter.
So onwards with the story (oh and please...please...pretty please leave a review-good or bad, I am just greedy and would adore feedback!

Prologue: Combustible Conversations
"Oh dear what an awkward situation" – Maleficent, 2014
Current day: June, 2012
Harry and Blaine 15 years old
"I don't want to hear this anymore! Why can't you just drop it!?" Blaine shouted, his normally composed expression making way for one of frustration and anger.
"Blaine….please, I'm not trying to cause trouble but if you would just listen…." Harry tried again, his own tone pleading.
"No! it's always the same with you, 'don't trust Kurt,' 'Kurt's not what he seems,' 'Kurt's using you'….I have heard it all before Harry, and I am sick of it. I have already made it clear where I stand on this, why do you insist on bringing it up over and over again? Can't you just let me be happy?!" Blaine's voice grew quieter and quieter as he spoke until at the end of the sentence he was speaking barely even whispering.
Harry had to clench his fist in frustration, his nails biting into the palms of his hand, as though he could physically force the guilt at hearing Blaine sounding so small, down. He didn't want to hear his brother like that….he truly didn't want to hurt Blaine but what other choice did he have? He had waited and hoped that Blaine would come to see the truth about his boyfriend on his own…to see that Kurt was not the sweet and innocent façade that he portrayed…. but he could wait no longer. It was either force Blaine to see the truth, or risk losing him altogether.
And maybe that sounded a bit melodramatic…but Harry couldn't help but feel that it was true none the less.
"I do want you to be happy….but can't you see what he's doing? How he's changing you? Twisting your opinions so that they match his….separating you from your old friends?" Harry asked, praying that for once that Blaine would put his own pride aside and actually consider his words. Anyone could see what Kurt was doing to his brother….well, anyone but Blaine it would seem.
For a brief second Harry thought that he had finally gotten through to his brother, that finally after all the arguments and confrontations between the two of them, that his words had sunk in….but just as quickly that hope was extinguished as Blaine's mouth turned down and his eyes narrowed.
"Is that it? Is that what's bothering you?" Blaine asked; his tone so cold and vicious that Harry hardly recognized it as his brother's normally warm dulcet voice. "Is the fact that I am changing and growing the thing that is bothering you? You know Kurt said that you were….well, never mind. The point is I defended you to him and now…" Blaine trailed off in disgust.
Harry knew in this moment that this conversation had done the exact opposite of what he had hoped it would—instead of exposing Kurt's machinations for what they were, it had pushed Blaine further into them.
"Blaine…" Harry began again only to be cut off by his brother's angry words.
"No, I don't care if whatever problem you have with my boyfriend is because you are jealous of him, jealous that I have managed to find someone else to confide in….or simply because you don't like him. I have had enough of this bullshit! I think it would be best if you kept your distance for awhile. Because I don't think I'm the only one who has changed recently….and honestly, I don't like this new version of you at all" Blaine ended, a tone of finality-one that took Harry's breath away, ringing through the tense air.
Before Harry could say anything in response; whether to defend himself and his actions, or beg for forgiveness and say that he was wrong (which in this case he most definitely was not…but anything would be better than having his brother, his twin, cut him off completely) Blaine had turned and stormed out of the now suffocating silent room.
Harry stared in the direction that his brother had gone—part of him wanting to run after him and force him to stay and part of him too angry and hurt to do so. He had so many things to say and unanswered questions to ask…but the main one was; where did he go wrong?
How did things come to this?
