I made a picspam with my commentary of the scene. You know. THE scene. Hope you enjoy the pretty caps, if not my comments. Image heavy.
So first, big meaty jock bullies small gay kid. Ok, this is to be expected, he's already slammed Kurt into the lockers a few times before. But he looks back. I am of the opinion that he may have used this simply as an excuse to stare at Kurt for a few seconds.
"I am talking to you!"
"Girl's locker room is next door."
"What is your problem?"
So, this is a little different. Kurt follows Karofsky, yelling his head off. Perfectly justified, of course, but more out of the norm. I imagine Karofsky is a bit surprised and probably a bit scared that his secret love (I SHIP IT NOW, I CAN SPECULATE ON JUST HOW BIG THIS CRUSH IS, THANK YOU VERY MUCH) is standing up for himself. What if he can't get away with his little moments of being noticed anymore?

"Excuse me?"
"What are you so scared off?"
"Besides you sneaking in here to peak at my junk?"
So. Typical homophobic remarks to hide that he probably wants Kurt to try to peak at his junk. Fear at being confronted and that his secret is that much closer to coming out (Hah! Get it? Coming out?) is mixed in there too. And I think I may have caught a bit of a stutter on 'sneak'.

"Oh yeah, every straight guy's nightmare, that all us gays are secretly out to molest and convert you. Well guess what hamhock. You're not my type."
Oh Kurt, how wrong you are. He isn't quite as straight as a ruler. As for Karofsky? I imagine that last line stung quite a bit. He is, after all, in ~love with the boy. I mean, look at that face. He flinched at hearing that, yes he did.

"That right?"
At this point he still believes he has a chance of hiding this. At this point he did. At this point I still believed that this was going to end with Kurt bruised and crying and in physical pain.

"Yeah. I don't do the chubby boys who sweat too much and are going to be bald by the time they're 30."
It's one thing to be put down by someone, but by someone you've probably been at least half in love with for a while? Ouchie ouch ouch. 

"Don't push me, Hummel."
He may be raising The Fury, but I doubt he was ever planning on really punching Kurt. Threats were there to assert his masculinity to the public, and to stop Kurt from protesting. Would anybody really want to harm that pretty face of Kurt's?

"You gonna hit me? Do it."
I think this is probably part of the reason Karofsky likes him. Kurt is small, he looks like he wouldn't be able to defend himself, and yet he doesn't let the bullying and threats bring him down for too long. He is daring Karofsky to hit him, to back up his threats, and yet he doesn't shrink down. He raises his head, only breaking eye contact to glance at the fist in his face. And they're standing close, face to face, inches between them.

"Don't push me!"
"Hit me because it's not going to change who I am. You can't punch the gay out of me anymore than I can punch the ignoramus out of you."
I couldn't really get it just by pictures, but that locker slam. That locker slam, and that line, he really is begging now for Kurt to just leave, to let him go on living in the world he's created for himself. He really doesn't want to be lectured more, he wasn't going to punch Kurt anyways, he's just wishing the ground would swallow him up so he wouldn't have to confront his feelings.

"Get out of my face!"
"You are nothing but a scared little boy who can't handle how extraordinarily ordinary you are!"
This scene really got so heated. I mean, Kurt is not only tearing that boy a new one, he is literally wagging a finger in front of his face. And Karofsky. Karofsky is so frightened, and angry, and just...human. Whereas before he was simply the annoying bully that we wished would go away, he is now the guy who is scared and ashamed of himself, who has actual feelings and problems. Sure, he's still really dim, but now we see a reason behind his bullying. It may not excuse it, but this IS set in highschool. People do things out of fear, without thinking about the long term consequences. And, in this split second, with Kurt yelling and Karofsky looking ready to cry, I still believed that Kurt was going to end up on the floor, having been beaten up. I was not expecting...

...this kiss. Everybody involved in this show did such a wonderful job of keeping this quiet. I was shocked, my jaw was dropped, my eyes were wide, and I'm pretty sure I all but screamed "WHAT?!!!" I may not actually know much about kissing, but Karofsky was there doing his best to get as much from that kiss as he could. He must have wanted to do that for a long time. And he gripped onto Kurt's head, like he couldn't bear to let him go. (A part of me is happy to point out that when the shot changes from behind Kurt to behind Karofsky, his right hand changed places. I'm curious to know how many takes this took.)

And look at Karofsky's face after that kiss. My heart is beating faster just looking at it, I can only imagine how he must be feeling. And he doesn't let go right away. He slides is hands down Kurt's face, and he looks at him like he's just found something amazing and it's finally there for him, and he can finally let that secret part of him out and be happy. And then he leans in for another kiss. He must have imagined kissing Kurt so many times before, and now he finally has and the real thing is better and he just wants more. His hands left Kurt's head, so I can only imagine that Karofsky moved to wrap his arms around Kurt's waist. His mind is probably flashing with possibilities, and hopes, and then...he's pushed away.

Karofsky has probably just had his first proper kiss, just like Kurt. I'm sympathetic to both of them, I am. On Kurt's side, the guy that has been targeting him specifically has just kissed him. He has stolen his very first kiss that counts, and even if he hadn't, it still would have been surprising and strange and confusing. On Karaofsky's side, he's been suppressing this side of himself for his entire life, and whether he's full out gay or bisexual, he still has a thing for Kurt, and he couldn't act on it until he reached his breaking point. And then when he finally gets a chance to act on it, he's rejected. It isn't surprising, but it still had to hurt.

This picspam and commentary has been brought to you through 3 interruptions, wherin my mother made me leave the computer, and two accidental clicking of the backspace button. Thank God for autosave.

Dear mods: perhaps you could add  an art: picspam tag? There's really no other way to tag this...

Before I read/see all this.

The Fury = His penis

That's totally what he was ACTUALLY referring to. But for any eavesdroppers, it was his fist xD

This is amazing scene *____*

Thank you! I just wanted an excuse to rewatch this scene over and over again :p
Astutaastuta on November 11th, 2010 04:07 am (UTC)
Ok, I made you the tags! :)

Wonderful picspam and commentary. You could really feel Karaofsky's longing for Kurt, he clearly has been thinking about kissing Kurt for quite some time, to react that way. It's like when he kissed Kurt he had all that he was wishing for, just for a small second. Until Kurt pulled back. And that whimper sound he made. It was like he's this wounded and scared animal, lashing out to the world.

Lol, maybe I'm reading to much into this.

Yay, tags~

Thank you! And no, you're totally not reading too much into it. I just rewatched the scene yet again and my heart breaks for him, it really does.
Tusofsky: Kurtofskytheunknownsoul on November 11th, 2010 04:09 am (UTC)

<3 All of this thank you

and yeah, people are so quick to be all "OMG HE MOLESTED KURT" uhh... While it probably wasn't the best way to go about it (okay it wasn't even close) I think it's OBVIOUS Karofsky has feelings for Kurt, not 'lol I'll kiss him THAT'LL FREAK HIM OUT' ...No. The moment got heated and he freaked when Kurt got in his face and was being all dominant like that and it caused an impulse. and he STOPS, thats important. It's almost like he kissed him then paused a moment to see if that was okay, Kurt didn't move, Karofsky went ALRIGHT THEN and went in again. Kurt then snapped out of it and shoved him away, then we get Karofsky's whiny bitch noise (Hey I love it) and he runs away

Then omg I actually felt bad for him when he saw Blaine and when Kurt shoved him off Blaine. Pretty sure Dave now despises Blaine, I think that was what caused the locker shove at the end of the ep too, sees Kurts crush (who Karofsky probably does think is Kurt's boyfriend) being all charming in a picture in his locker and BAM

idk this plot could go a million places and I am so looking forward to it

....HI I JUST RAMBLED AT YOU sorry XD Agree with what all you said though <3
gleeker13gleeker13 on November 11th, 2010 04:16 am (UTC)

Yeah, I can't wait for this plot to get some direction~ And I'm hoping it WILL, because with how much they put into hiding it, they had better deliver to the people who loved it.

Sadiana: Hocus Pocus - Squee!sadiana on November 11th, 2010 04:09 am (UTC)
I just want more, you know? I can't wait to see what comes next for this show. I don't care if this becomes The Kurt Hummel Show (like I've read some complainers whine). Don't get me wrong, I was cheering for Finchel when Finn said the words, but they're canon now, and I just want Kurt to be happy for once. (Well, Kurt and Artie, because Uber Underdogs for the Win.)

I really want redemption for Karofsky. It's like The Wizard said (from Wicked), "The most celebrated are the rehabilitated." Yeah, Karofsky's gonna take some hits in school when it comes out (if it does) because he bullies people, for goodness' sake. But maybe he can make new friends in Glee club. And maybe the fans can learn to love him.

If possible, maybe that happy can go hand in hand with Kurt, because I think it could do them both some good. I keep thinking, those poor boys.

As a last thought, I want to point out that I like Blaine, sure, but I think he'd be such a good friend to Kurt, a mentor, a guide (and probably a crush, Kurt does have a picture of him in his locker), and a good role model. Then again, I need to see more of his character to fully determine that, haha.
gleeker13gleeker13 on November 11th, 2010 04:20 am (UTC)
I'm hoping it was more widespread than just the online circle I hang out with, but a lot of people seem to have seen Karofsky's emotions during this scene, and realize that he's a human being too, and he apparently has problems, and he isn't lucky enough to have any friends that he could confide in and get the confidence he needs to come out.

Rewatching and then this picspam today solidified in my head how this scene is a HATESEX-FAN'S DREAM COME TRUE.

Seriously, when I was rewatching it, I was like, "IT'S LIKE FANFIC COME TO LIIIFE!"

Such beautiful insight, totally with you on it all and just...want. ♥
gleeker13gleeker13 on November 11th, 2010 10:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you <3
It's funny, it seems everyone who now likes this ship has a mutual agreement that is pretty close to this, while everyone else saw him being really aggressive and scary and rapey. DID THEY NOT SEE THAT LOOK?! THE WAY HIS HANDS SLID DOWN KURT'S FACE?! HIS HURT FACES?!
..claire_kay on November 11th, 2010 08:47 pm (UTC)
thank you so much for this.
I ship them so bad.

You're welcome.
They are darn near impossible to NOT ship after that kiss.

No problem <3 I'm glad the caps came out so well.

Ah beautiful picspam!! I had just heard about the possibility of a jock coming out just days before Tuesday, and I just knew it had to be Karofsky! I was counting the seconds down, waiting for the inevitable kiss to happen!

Max was amazing in that scene, as well as Chris! SO MUCH PASSION!!!! And you are NOT the only one who wondered how many takes it took to get that kiss to look so perfect!!

Karofsky is completely confused, and it is the typical child's play, where you're so confused that you think hurting the one you like is the best way to get their attention (ie pulling on pigtails). Every bit of that scene he is so afraid of being so close to Kurt. Showing the "Fury" and slamming the locker (very similar to the way the Gorilla at the zoo was doing when he was ticked off at some kids the other day) was his way of hoping Kurt would run, because him running just couldn't happen. He was already running from his feelings, but running from what was in front of him? Yeah, no way. But pushing him away was the only option. But Kurt wouldn't let that happen. I love Kurt's ability to ream someone so easily. But he got too close. His words were too much, and Karofsky couldn't help but react. Luckily for us, it was with his lips and not his fist!!!

Wow... ok long comment is long... I NEED TO BE WRITING MY KURTOFSKY FIC RIGHT NOW!!!! (I actually started one moments after the show ended lol)
gleeker13gleeker13 on November 12th, 2010 03:26 am (UTC)
