Where to begin with this? With all the {{Cerebus Retcon}}s and {{Deconstruction}} going on, ''Hunting the Unicorn'' [[FixFic was literally tailor-made]] for making you die a little inside.

* Blaine and Kurt's dreams.
* "The Midnight Carnival," where Kurt [[CryIntoChest cries into Blaine's chest.]]
* "The Magician" is where we find out just how bad Blaine feels about screwing up Kurt's life.
* The ending of "The Clock" is a big one, according to readers. Doubles as subverting ThePowerOfLove and being a MeaningfulEcho.
* "The Princess" [[{{Deconstruction}} takes a sledgehammer]] to AManIsAlwaysEager and SexEqualsLove, puts a new perspective on Blaine's actions in "Sexy," and Blaine sings [[Music/ReginaSpektor "Samson."]]
-->'''Blaine:''' [[spoiler: I wish it was with you.]]
** It gets ''[[HarsherInHindsight even worse]]'' in light of "The First Time."
* Terry tried to invoke a DanceOfRomance with Blaine. Unfortunately, Blaine is ObliviousToLove.
* Blaine can't listen to [[Theatre/SpringAwakening "Touch Me"]] without feeling unbearable awkwardness and regret.
* Blaine's counseling sessions are pretty depressing in general, what with exposing his fears and insecurities. His painful, confused [[EpiphanyTherapy epiphany]] in "The Harpy" is particularly bad.
* The end of "Drinn," where Blaine dreams about [[spoiler: lying in bed with his first, wondering why he doesn't feel anything]].
-->''[[LoveMartyr And so he waits.]]''
* When Blaine [[spoiler: wakes up in a stranger's basement with Wes and David]], who's the first person he calls for help? [[LoveMartyr His neglectful, implicitly homophobic dad.]]
* In one chapter, Blaine calls his dad for help because David and Wes are drunk. He gets Kyle instead, and the narration notes that he just sounds weary, like it's happened too many times for him to be surprised.
* Blaine blaming himself for not noticing that people keep falling for him.
