"So then I took my turn Oh all the things I’ve done And it was all yellow” 

Blaine is of Gaelic origin, meaning yellow. Yellow is vibrant and friendly. The color of sunshine, yellow represents happiness, joy, good humor, intellect and energy. Yellow evokes feelings of warmth and cheerfulness. However, yellow should not be overused, as vast expanses of bright yellow creates a disturbing mental effect. Yellow attracts attention very effectively. Yellow is usually seen as light-hearted, unstable, and a little childish. Yellow can also be used as an adjective to describe someone cowardly. Yellow is also scientifically the hardest colour for the eye to take in.
I used yellow sunflowers because: Bright and cheery, bold yet comfortable, the sunflower is a warm and caring gift. Sunflowers with their tall stalks and bright petals stretched towards the sun are viewed as a symbol of loyalty and constancy. The sunflower’s petals have been likened to bright yellow rays of sunshine, which evoke feelings of warmth and happiness. In addition, the sunflower is often associated with adoration and longevity.
Yellow by Coldplay was associated because the song is all about doing everything you can for the one you love and how beautiful you think that person is. Romantically, brotherly, it’s all unconditional. When Blaine loves, he loves with everything he has because he is earnest and genuine and wants to do all he can for the person he cares about.
The canary is a given. However, dreaming of a yellow canary can mean sensitivity and vulnerability. Also the power of personal voice and "singing your own song" in life. Canaries are connected with freedom and intellect. Also testing and self-sacrifice. If depicted in a cage it symbolises entrapment, prisoners and sometimes unhappiness.
I refuse to believe that naming this character Blaine was mere coincidence.
