Title: Interview with the Hottest Couple.
Prompt: Chris/Darren talking about their first kiss in an interview.
Author’s Note: Nothing really! Hopefully you enjoyed it :)
It was about a year after Glee when the new hottest couple, Chris and Darren were asked to be interviewed together by Ellen. This was their third interview together in total since they didn’t want too much attention on them about this. Once arriving, the two waited for their cue to go out.
After about fifteen minutes, their names were heard.
"And next on this show we have the new hottest couple! Chris Colfer and Darren Criss!" said a very energetic Ellen. (as usual)
Hearing the screams at just ‘Chris’, the two walked out, hand-in-hand and with the happiest smile on their faces. So many people were accepting.. more than the people who weren’t. As soon as they both hugged Ellen and sat, the audience got quieter so they could speak.
"So, Chris..Darren, how does it feel to be the new hottest couple in People magazine?!" she pulled out the magazine with them on the cover. "Just like a new Neil and David! Or even a new Ellen and Portia!"
"Oh, well I don’t know about that, both of those pairings are pretty loved" Darren said with a goofy grin and Chris smiled and added, "If we can have that spotlight, I guess we don’t mind" he said jokingly and the audience laughed before getting quiet once more.
Ellen then chuckled and glanced at a paper before speaking, “I have a question for you two..”
"You ask that question, Ellen my girl!" Darren said causing another roar of laughter from everyone, even Ellen.
"Well, then, Darren my boy.. since you’re so eager to answer, how was yours and Chris’s first kiss?" she asked with a light smile on her face causing the two to look at each other at the same time and blush lightly.
"You mean on-screen.. or off-screen?" Chris asked and smiled before Ellen spoke,
"I mean off-screen and unscripted" she said with a nod, now listening.
"Well-.." Darren started.
"Has to be appropriate!" She said quickly before Darren could continue.
"Oh, okay.. well let me try and think of that one.. our first kiss..that’s uh..appropriate" He said and pretended to be deep in thought causing Chris to blush.
"Oh, stop it.. our first kiss was appropriate you hobbit!" Chris yelled and hit him lightly on the arm with a smile and light giggle. The audience laughed, as Ellen gave a weird expression.
"Hobbit?" she questioned.
"Yes, I call him a hobbit" Chris said with a nod as Darren pointed to him,
"This guy is so mean to me.. bullies me everyday and calls me a hobbit" Darren whined. Ellen just nodded and laughed, "So.. hobbit, you may continue."
Darren just chuckled, “I have nothing bad to say about you, so I will continue” he said before explaining.
"So, our first unscripted kiss was before my first Glee comic-con. It was "practice" so our kissing scenes wouldn’t make us nervous for the scenes." He said before hearing a bunch of ‘ooos’.
Chris then nodded, “I said the same thing” (referring to the ‘oos’) causing yet again, another bit of laughter.
Ellen made a joke once remembering something, “Your last interview here you said you were straight, I mean.. what happened here?”
The audience laughed, and Darren then remembered, “Well.. I guess I didn’t realize it until I was consumed for my love of Chris Colfer here, that I may not be straight and that I love him more than just a friendly way.”
Chris smiled fondly at him and put a hand over Darren’s hand as the audience was a bunch of ‘awwwws’ at this point. Ellen smiled and had them cue an old love song, causing the boys to blush. She then began speaking which was a cue to stop it.
"So, this was kind of like Neil and David’s story.. both have dated women before and were certain they were straight until finding each other..except it’s just Darren for that part" She said and the two nodded before Chris spoke,
"I never got to say I was straight."
The crowd laughed. Now,it was the end of the show, and interview, so Ellen spoke to wrap it up.
"It is now the end of the show, you two gentlemen.. it’s been great to have you here and get to know just a little bit more about your relationship. Have an Ellen trophy because you love me so much" She handed them both a trophy as they stood and the audience clapped. They gave nice thank you and goodbye hug before the show ended.
Now the audience and Ellen could talk to them a little more after the show and see what they are like talking to other off camera, which they both seem happier and sweeter than before.
