Fic: Where There's Smoke AU, [3/12]

Author: Stoney
Title: Where There's Smoke [3/12+E]
Rating: PG-13 generally, but moving to NC-17 in places (will point out, accordingly, for those averse)
Word Count: 3600/100,000
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.


Kurt had already made good headway in the morning's crossword; she would be left with 'lavabo - ten letters' and 'Trammel of baseball - fifteen letters,' and Kurt had absolutely no idea what it could possibly be. And didn’t care. He grimly noted that there were two clues that involved coffee and four that involved love or relationships. Even the NYT crossword puzzle was mocking him.Collapse )

Oh, good! I love that you feel happy. Now let me kill off --

JUST KIDDING. :D (omg, no character death for me, my heart can't take it)

Kurt bit his lip to make sure he didn't actually moan into the phone. Sweaty exertion made him think of Kurt?
I am going to literally die. It will be one of the few times that the word is used accurately in context.

The inside of Kurt's head is glorious and funny, and I want to snicker in it forever.

At least Kurt's bad day ended on a good note, and solved the "phone number" (or lack of same) problem. And now they have an actual date set up. Yippee! I can see Kurt doing his little dance...perhaps Single Ladies?

Ha! I imagined more of a barrel roll or a rondulay, but could be, could be. :D

this is absolutely my new favorite thing ever because of reasons

like your Kurt dialogue? You NAIL the Kurt dialogue, which is an impressive feat in itself. Yet you also manage to translate it into more than just dialogue - it's physical and emotional and just so Kurt. I love it.

And by extension, your Klaine interactions have my heart melting. MELTING. One of my favorite scenes in the history of fanfiction is when Kurt and Blaine are on the phone, and Kurt's toes curl in under him. So freaking adorable. The man is in looooove, and god does he deserve it.

I'm sorry I haven't reviewed earlier, but I also loved the scene in the last chapter, in the doorway of the bar. Pure gold. Your writing is so sensory and full of little threads of emotions that I continue to be amazed with. I can't wait to finish this beautiful piece of work and to stalk you for future masterpieces :)

Ooh, I like reasons! ;D

He really really does deserve love - I'm always baffled on the show when they have everyone go after Blaine (I get why, he's wonderful) but NEVER Kurt. HE IS GORGEOUS. I digress.

Oh, I'm just happy you popped in now, and THANK YOU very much! Lurk away, I never mind. :)

Not many people pick up on that about my Spock mood theme, so YOU GET BONUS POINTS. I've had this for almost 7 years, too. *applauds you*

I'm so glad you're loving it!! BUT GET SLEEP OMG, THIS WILL BE HERE WHEN YOU ARE FRESH AS A DAISY.

*totally uses all Spock/Trek icons for you now*

"Kurt was frozen in place, the toffee candy bar wrapper he had been in the process of biting off was stuck to his lip, but both hands were full. He tried to push it off his lip with his tongue."

That is quite possibly some of my favourite imagery ever. I can just see it, and it makes me all warm and fuzzy and giggly. Adorable. I'm head over heels for this fic. It's such a pleasure to read.

It's Xmas Eve and I am alone in my apartment wearing penguin footie pajamas and I am half way through a box of wine. I am a classy bitch.
This fic is all I need right now and it is making me happier than a pig in shit. I will probably comment on every chapter, and I may get through the whole thing tonight unless I pass out at my computer again, so I am sorry in advance for the notifications you shall be receiving.
Ok, so your Kurt is wonderfulamazingbrilliantilovehimsomuch. I wanna happy dance with him through a dewy meadow of lilacs.
On to the date...

Is it wrong that I know EXACTLY what PR season AND episode, outfit and contestant Kurt was talking about? LOL I even referenced that exact same monstrosity of a look in a fic. You were much kinder than i was, I called it a cross between hooker barbie and hot tranny mess :P

I waited until this was complete to start reading it and it nearly killed me b/c I saw it recc'd like EVERYWHERE and I see why. This story is so cute! I'm loving Kurt and Blaine and even Rachel and just *snuggles story* its so adorbs :)

Wrong? IT IS WONDERFUL. Because you know exactly why Kurt was laughing and being bothered by that MONSTROSITY. <3 I think it's hilarious that you used it, too! It's just that terrible.

Glad you came back to read, and that you're enjoying it! I appreciate you telling me. <3

I absolutely envy your writing. The dialogues are witty and humorous. I'm feeling tingly with all this Klaine chemistry going on.

I just feel like check boxes are always a good alternative. A date! It's a date. A date. I don't understand why I should have a love life when I can live through fake people's love lifes. Off to read more.

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.
