now, i’ve spent a lot of time (probably too much time) looking at this twitter account and i’m 100% convinced that darren runs it at least part of the time (i mean, the tweet to stephen fry was basically solid proof, am i wrong?). so here’s my little headcanon about this particular favorite on pavarotti’s account. please forgive my scattered thoughts, it’s late and i’ve been awake a very long time.
obviously the will/mia debate is one of the biggest thorn’s in crisscolfer shippers sides. while i believe that mia and darren did date at one point, i think it’s been over for a long time. i also buy into the believe that pr needed to put someone out there with him and here was a girl who had dated him and who, at the time was a good friend of his, so it made since to use her. needless to say, shit went down, darren is now distant and uncomfortable around her and mia’s presence at events is worthless now, whether it be from darren’s demands that it stop or just that his pr finally realized no one was buying it.
enter will. there’s lots of speculation on this, but i’m one of the ones that believes him and chris are actually dating. now, don’t run away on me yet, let me explain. while we all know chris is intensely private, i think he’s also of the age that he’s probably tired of being one of the only ones in the cast (the only one?) that has yet to be seen in public with someone as more than friends. and i don’t think it’s a coincidence that will and chris were going to the same party or that they’ve been caught in places together more than once, looking just this side of too friendly. i don’t think chris would risk that type of exposure or rumor for someone who was simply a casual acquaintance or a new beau. however (and keep in mind i only speak based on what i see of chris’ character/personality traits), judging by what i’ve seen from will’s blog, i also can’t see him being the type of person chris settles down with for a lengthy period of time. which brings me to darren.
there’s obvious chemistry between the two and that is something you can’t fake. i think it finally came to a head during the glee live tour in dublin. that was the beginning. what started as an awesome way to blow off some steam together (hot, steamy makeout sessions and awesome sex), quickly spiraled into something neither of them really expected. maybe there was a conversation about it, maybe there wasn’t. regardless, we’re here, now, with chris (probably) dating will and darren unattached (if this new favorite is anything to go by).
but with all the hints, big and little that we’ve been getting? i seriously think we’re on the edge of something huge. whether it’s chris’ realization that he doesn’t just want to settle for being out with someone, he wants to settle for THE someone or darren coming to terms with the fact that he’s hopelessly smitten with a dude (because no matter how open you are or how much you hate labels, if it’s not something you’ve dealt with before, it can be difficult to accept and take in, trust me) or he’s just ready to face everything head on or just that they’re finally in a place where they can finally look at each other and do their own personal twist on ‘oh there you are, i’ve been looking for you forever’ and get their relationship started. it’s going to happen and it’s going to happen soon, one way or another, we’ll get some sort of confirmation. it might be a bumpy ride, but i really think we’re almost to the end.
and if you actually managed to read this entire thing, i tip my hat to you. time to crawl back under my rock…
