I decided I wanted to know how these pictures were taken, exactly. So I wrote a drabble of Dalton’s school picture day. I hope I came close to the characterization that CPC gives these characters!
“Okay then, Mr. Wright, let’s have a smile.” The photographer was settled behind his camera for Dalton’s picture day.
Logan resisted the urge to roll his eyes. Of course, it ultimately wasn’t resisted, because the flash suddenly went off as Logan did roll his eyes at the photographer’s feeble attempts and prodding.
“That’s good, Mr. Wright,” said the photographer with a smirk. Logan frowned and stood from the chair. He wondered if this man was competent enough for this job, then he idly wondered as he walked away if the picture would actually turn out good or not.
It probably would.
“Hello,” said Blaine as he sat down on the stool for his school picture.
“Hello,” said the slightly shocked photographer. He wasn’t used to niceties. “Already then, Mr. Anderson, smile.”
The camera flashed and the photographer frowned. “You look like you just sucked on a lemon. A real smile, this time.” He sighed. “Think of something to make you smile, eh? A happy memory?”
Blaine frowned. He usually just did a sort of small smile in his school pictures. He wasn’t a fan of them, really.
Then, unexpectedly, a thought came to him. It was of the younger boy from McKinley who had come to spy on the Warblers yesterday. His cute face and deep eyes flooded in front of Blaine’s eyes in an instant. Blaine grinned as he remembered the smile Kurt had on his face during the “Teenage Dream” performance. Something told Blaine that he didn’t smile often…
And then a flash.
“Now that was a good smile,” laughed the photographer.
“Thank you,” said Blaine. His thoughts were still on Kurt. He thought maybe he would text him later.
And now I’m starting to think of how adorable Reed’s picture would be…and the Twins! (They would probably mess with the photographer’s head!) Oh hey, Jackie? *wink wink, nudge nudge*
