Title: Where There's Smoke [2/12+]
Rating: PG-13 generally, but moving to NC-17 in places (will point out, accordingly, for those averse)
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine, Wes and David friendship, mentions of former Finn/Rachel
Word Count: 10,120/100,000
Warnings: None, really, aside from future mentions of homophobic treatment by a parent (I never use slurs. Never.)
Summary: Fireman AU, set 7 years after graduation. Kurt is Kurt, except that he never met Blaine Anderson. Blaine grew up in Brooklyn with his mother and firefighter father. Rachel and Kurt have graduated NYADA, Kurt gained a Masters from Tisch, and now they're in their first post-college apartment together ready to tackle their dreams. Unfortunately, Rachel never learned how to properly cook and almost sets their new house on fire. Enter Dreamy McFirepants.
A/N: This wouldn't exist without the most amazing editor a person could ask for, flaming_muse. Any remaining errors fall squarely on her my shoulders. :D Also, I am ultimately a romantic, I don't like character death, I love writing happy endings, and Kurt and Rachel live in my dream place in Carroll Gardens (it's modeled after a real piece of real estate there.) I tried to be as accurate as a visitor to NYC can get, but did take a few liberties with neighborhood bodegas. Um, I also have a huge thing for firemen and I make no apologies for that.

'David said for me to bring a friend, so I am.' Kurt dead-panned, 'A <i>friend.</i> Rachel, in straight that means Santana, someone that plays on both sides and has a nice set of boobs. I'm fairly certain the handsome, straight, black fireman didn't intend for you to bring your Dandy.'Collapse )

I'm so happy you're enjoying it, thank you!

For a hot second there, I thought Wes was going to flirt with Kurt. HUGE sigh of relief.
I badly want to know what happened to Blaine's dad. D:
Dec. 16th, 2011 01:11 pm (UTC)
Ha, so did Kurt! :D No, no, Wes just is vetting him for his boy back at the station.

ZOMG KEEP READING AND YOU'LL FIND OUT. *music of ill portent* (And thank you for still reading!)

Oh, god. I love how you introduce Wes, how he and Kurt bond over Wes's fiance! And how he keeps Kurt from escaping and is digging on David's behalf. Wes scowled at his phone. Kurt worried that he was fighting with his girlfriend, the one that might be able to help Kurt get an employee's discount on a pair of Louis Python Crystal sneakers. I laughed at this; honestly, I adored the scenes with Wes and Kurt.

These men,” he said, waving his hand towards the crowd, “are actual grownups. Last week they probably saved an entire orphanage filled with terminally ill children and special needs kittens from certain death, while I was standing in line for the latest issue of Japanese Vogue.” Oh, Kurt. Sweetie, please.

And he would be a model and had a trust fund and a closet full of one-of-a kind McQueen and a PhD in Fantastic, and he would automatically know that Kurt's pants were from eBay, his shoes were last season, and his shirt was from a damaged sale and Kurt was so gifted with his ability to mend and sew, Joshua/Jeremiah just never could work with his hands like that and isn't little Kurt just the cutest, Blaine? We should invite him to my quaint 12,000 square foot home in the Hamptons in August, he'll be so entertaining.

That was how Kurt's life played out.

Rachel scrutinized his face, chewing the inside of her cheek before she asked, “Castle in Bavaria?”

He leveled his gaze at her and replied, “No. Mansion in the Hamptons.”

Laughing (and aching) at this. How this reveals Kurt's character and manages to show bonding with Rachel... just lovely. And I'm so glad Kurt and Blaine got to end the evening with a little note of promise. I really 'ship Kurt/Happy.

I'm so glad you liked those moments with Wes and Kurt, they were so fun to write.

Thank you so much for reading and commenting, it's awesome to hear what works for the reader, thank you for that! (I ship that, too!)

Damn, I wanted Kurt to get up there and sing. Maybe next karaoke night. He and Blaine so need to do a duet, but first Blaine needs to hear his amazing voice. Not sure what's up with that Bill guy and Blaine but clearly Blaine was uncomfortable. But now they can start having coffee dates, once they exchange numbers. DUH! They both forgot that part.
Dec. 19th, 2011 12:26 am (UTC)
Ha! Exactly! Thank you for reading!
Dec. 21st, 2011 04:37 am (UTC)
ahahahhahaha... I was like "ummm, do either of you have each other's numbers" and then that last line... HAH.. nice...

ALSO.. Vulcan mood image = epic AND awesome

So, you write fabulous Klaine fanfics AND you're a trekkie? Can we maybe get married or something?
Dec. 21st, 2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
Yo, I'm a Trekker [/is old school] Hahahah. And I'm glad YOU realized Kurt didn't get his number, he was a little flustered at the time. :D

(So glad you're enjoying this!)

SORRY.. I just need this, in the face of this.

Lip biting good.
Blaine's descriptions make me blush.
First fan-fiction I have ever been truly excited to finnish.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 11:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!! Ha, I'm glad you're enjoying this!
Dec. 25th, 2011 04:02 am (UTC)

Kurt is flippin adorable.
Dec. 25th, 2011 04:20 am (UTC)
Hahahaha, I'm so glad you do, thank you!!

David & Wes text-bombing Blaine made me chuckle. I bet they were pretty awesome texts. Oh, all the tension of this part made my chest tight - I was so worried along with Kurt about what's not being said.
Jan. 18th, 2012 12:34 am (UTC)
Oh, I LOVE that you were worried alongside him, that's awesome to know! Thanks so much for that.

Kurt dead-panned, “A friend. Rachel, in straight that means Santana, someone that plays on both sides and has a nice set of boobs. I'm fairly certain the handsome, straight, black fireman didn't intend for you to bring your Dandy.”

She licked her thumb and moved to wipe something off his cheek when he reared back and caught her hand before she could touch him. “That's disgusting, Rachel.”


Oh my god, he really can sing. Kurt had a brief flash of a future that featured a permanent duet partner. They could be like the gay Captain and Tenille. We’d have to fight over the captain’s hat...
Cue tears of laughter.
*hums Love Will Keep Us Together*

I am judging all of them for I Need Love. I mean, really.

Also mythical Joshua/Jeremiah is an ass. I wanna punch him in his non-existent face. What can you do with a PhD in Fantastic anyway?!

Deconstructed Oklahoma?! Wow. Just wow.

Really Kurt? No number??
Oh well. Where there's a will, there's a coffee date with a cute guy.
Jan. 19th, 2012 07:16 pm (UTC)

...hopefully more than just coffee. *zips lip* :D

(Love that you're enjoying this!)

I can already tell that I'm going to get emotional over this fic and I. Can. Not. Wait.
Feb. 4th, 2012 04:22 pm (UTC)
I can already tell I'm going to have fun reading your comments and seeing your icons. Go with God, Satan! ;D
Feb. 6th, 2012 03:17 am (UTC)
I got unreasonably excited when Blaine ordered Abita
Feb. 6th, 2012 12:56 pm (UTC)
There are those of us that think your excitement is 100% normal. I'm just saying, Abita is pretty damn boss. ;))
Apr. 1st, 2012 03:01 am (UTC)
So intrigued to see what's up with Blaine. :)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
