Fic: Where There's Smoke Klaine AU [8/12+]

Author: Stoney
Title: Where There's Smoke [8/12+]
Rating: This part R for intense action and nudity [zomg nekkid butts]
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine, Wes and David friendship, mentions of former Finn/Rachel
Word Count: 10,500/100,000
Warnings: Kurt finally hangs out at the fire station. Guess what happens? (Be prepared, my firefighter daughters, for intense situations)
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.

(Speaking of flaming_muse - if you think you like how I write Kurt and Blaine, you really should read everything she's written. I learned at her knee.)


Kurt spent the next morning floating from task to task, unable to keep his mind focused.Collapse )

Awww, I bet that was very stressful for poor Kurt. And exhausting for Blaine. Fortunately he has Kurt to take care of him.

Oh dear lord...

I've been on a catch up with this fic and I have no words. Just... really. I keep waiting for it all to go horribly wrong and my heart stops right along with Kurt's when things happen but then he comes home and my heart remembers to beat, right along with Kurt's, and the absolute ease of these two in this part...

It seems to be raining on my face.

(I'm glad to know that you got stressed and worried, because I'm delighted that the scene worked.) HAVING SAID THAT. Get under my umbrella-ella-ella and let me pass you a tissue. :)

THIS IS JUST...GAH.

OKAY, LISTING THINGS THAT WIN AT LIFE, IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE:

1)Burt.
2)Burt keeping the chair Kurt's mom bought
3)Carole bringing them lunch at the shop
4)Kurt knowing what hat Burt had on just by the day of the week.
5)Bill.
6)Bill's mustache.
7)"Hey, Blackbird!"
8)Blaine going from annoyed to happy, just because Kurt showed up.
9)Of *course* Kurt's epic at sliding down a fireman's pole (and of *course* I'm thinking up so many dirty jokes for that). :D
10)Dinner, and everything about it.
11)Blaine and Kurt washing the dishes together (they are so freaking married).
12)Rachel being an awesome friend.
13)Blaine and David being alright (I read your thing about not liking character death, but still. Lots of things that *aren't* death still could've happened)
14)Kurt not caring that his clothes got dirty/wet.
15)BLAINE'S FLYING V HIPBONES. (Seriously, I sent a text message to a friend that said "Firefighter fic mentions the flying v. Best fic ever." I have a thing for Darren's hips, soo...)
16)Blaine telling Kurt where he keeps his spare keys!!!!!
17)Blaine saying he'd be 'home' soon.
18)EVERYTHING ELSE THAT HAPPENED THAT I DIDN'T MENTION.

So...yeah. Basically the things that I liked most were...this whole chapter. :D

I swear this story does things to my heart. One minute i'm squeeing from the fluffiness of even more domestic Klaine (GOD THEY'RE SO PRECIOUS I CAN'T STOP SMILING), the next i'm holding my breath along with Kurt to find out if Blaine is all right and it aches for both of them. They just need to be together forever and ever, ok?
Kurt's talk with Burt about falling in love was wonderful and the way you tied it with what happened was brilliant. It certainly is love *le dreamy sigh*

(SERIOUSLY HOW MARRIED/PERFECT ARE THEY??) I think they need to be together forever, too. <3

IT IS LOVE. And it's about time they showed it. :D Thank you thank you for coming back!

How the hell... Am I sleep-texting again?

Again? I gotta hear this bit of backstory. It sounds like it could be hilarious!

I love Burt SO MUCH!!!!!

Nice to see Kurt already knows how to work a pole...that'll come in handy!

Come on, Blaine!! Don't you know...no glove, no love!

My roommate gave me the weirdest look because I actually stood up from my chair and said, "Rachel...stop gasping and exclaiming!! You're terrifying him!!!"

I wish I had the words to express just how much I loved everything about this chapter...or the entire fic, even.

*loves*

Those Ambien induced horrors from grad school... :D

I love Burt, but this you knew. You don't know what else Blaine keeps in his desk! He's a responsible boy! OMG, CJ, I laughed so hard at the thought of you jumping to your feet... I LOVE YOU.

I keep thinking "this fic cant get better" then you bring Burt THE BOSS Hummel into the mix and I just cant even. Burt Hummel Appreciation Life!

And then that fire! Gah, my stomach was all in knots, but I'm glad Blainers and the boys were ok. Yay.

BURT IS THE BEST. The best. I <3 him.

(I love that your stomach was in knots!!) But hopefully the rest of it (ahem, and tomorrow) will make it all better. :)

THANK YOU.

Oh, this was lovely! I love Kurt's conversation with Burt (Burt, how so awesome?) and Rachel keeping him company waiting for the firetrucks to come back, and then Blaine in the shower. Okay, yes, emotional and caring and a very sweet moment, but there's a huge part of my brain stuck on Blaine, wet and naked and... yes. Very much yes.

(Burrt = greatest parent on TV)

Oh, I think you sound like a perfectly reasonable person to be stuck on him in the shower. Yes. Ahem. (Lol! THANK YOU!)

It's so incredibly fitting that it's Burt who gets Kurt's mind back on track, and thinking about what's really important. Beautifully done. :)

Burt = Kurt's touchstone. I love their relationship. LOVE. (And thank you so much!)

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuug!

All the feelings, all the love.

Yay, Burt, such a good father. How does he know exactly what Kurt needs to hear? He's like magic. Can't wait until Burt meets Blaine and gets to say, "Yup, I knew my son was in love with you the first time he said your name."

The shower scene was so perfect. I could feel how sore and exhausted Blaine was. I've only been like that a couple times (not from fighting fires) and it's so intense, and I'm so glad Kurt was there to take care of him (and resisted the urge to, ahem, take care of him because, yeah, Blaine would have totally fallen asleep in the middle).

Looking forward to Blaine coming home to Kurt in the morning.

Burt is simply perfection. The best parent on TV, hands down. Ha, that would definitely not be a good idea to have someone you've been waiting for to fall asleep when you need them...alert. :)

Thank you so much for reading and commenting!

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.
