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 )

and another thing...
This line: "He locked eyes with Kurt as the truck's lights switched on, and covered his heart with his hand..."

...had me over the moon.
How can you not love that?

Guh. I was lost right there.

This is one of the most well developed and beautifully written stories I've ever come across. I'm can't even find words to tell you how much I love this story right now.

Oh my, I think my brain has turned to mush after reading that chapter. It was just so wonderful. Everything was just perfect, kurt spending time at the firehouse, being there for blaine, getting over his fears.

I have too many things to say but my brain won't function. Excited for tomorrow's chapter!

Asdfghjk,;
I find this story comppletely captivating and emotional. When Blaine when to the fire, i was freaking out with Kurt. Not just reading about Kurt freaking out like in other stories. I was on the verge of tears. You are a terrific author.

*sobbing softly as I stroke the computer screen* I really do think you are trying to kill me with all of this. I don't think you will ever be aware of how much I am loving this story - there are simply no words or ways that I can express it.
For some reason I keep finding myself picturing scenes from Ladder 49 and now in this chapter where they got the call and hurried to pull on their gear and such - I was picturing that particular scene in the movie :P
That fire scene successfully broke my heart. Kurt and Rachel were so sweet and scared and gahh! It was beautifully written! Everything about that moment was just perfection - I was scared for Blaine and I knew nothing was going to happen cause you said no major character deaths! Everything about this chapter was perfect and I'd just like to say that conversation between Burt and Kurt is everything I picture their relationship to be - it was wonderfully portrayed and written. I need to stop rambling but I thank your parents for conceiving you, for your English teacher and you, most of all, for your talent at writing. (sorry if that freaked you out but im a bundle of emotions right now)See you tomorrow <3

OMG I love your comments. ALso, I am going to have to watch Ladder 49 - Backdraft soiled me on firefighter movies. (Forever lol'ing at Finn's, "Backdraft the Musical?")

I am WELL PLEASED that the scene was tense (and that you knew you could trust me, I am not a liar - NO DEATH) and I would also like to add you to the Gold Bar of the Month club, just tell me where to send them. :)

SEE YOU THEN. (Um, you'll be happy with me, I think.)

How do you do it, how is every chapter better and better? That was perfect. The scene with Burt was so sweet and then I was holding my breathe the entire time Kurt was waiting to see if Blaine was ok. Ugh, favorite story right now.

“I'll be home before you know it.”

&&& My heart melted right along with Kurt's, sigh. Thank god you update every day, this is too good.

VOODOO AND SANTERIA. That's how. (The secret is in the chicken!)

I am so happy you're enjoying this!! (Ugh, I am SO impatient, I can't stand having to wait indefinitely for chapters. Worse one ever was TWO YEARS for the conclusion of the most epic fic I'd ever read. JEEZ. I vowed to never leave people hanging. Well, no more than a day. *g*)

THANK YOU.

I am getting ever more obsessed with this story. Thank heavens you're updating every day. I know everyone's analysed every line 10 ways to Sunday by now. I found "I... thank you" quite intriguing.

Epic.
I have been living off of this for the past week, after I discovered it.
I freak out when I see that you have posted, and I literally can't get enough of these two. Words cannot effectively describe my love for you, and this story.

"Hey, Blackbird!" Made me flail. also, Kurt not caring that his clothes got wet/dirty. I love me some comparison between captain blaine, and goofball kurt's blaine.

(Also, I made a live journal account just so I could give you a review. I should have reviewed sooner)

Aww, thank you! Both for the extra lengths to comment, and that you commented! (Have I turned off anon commenting? I should fix that!)

I'm so grateful for that, THANK YOU.

I admit I have been lurking... I put this fic off for a few days because I knew I'd love it and it would be agonizing to wait for it everyday... and I was right! It had become one of the first things I check every morning. :)

Since reading the summary I knew that I would like this fic in general, but there are a few things that I just really truly love. I love how Kurt did get in to NYADA and then took the costume design route, because it's both plausible and in character. I think I prefer him working in fashion/costuming anyhow, and this fic definitely increased that feeling. I also love how you write Blaine's physicality. Kurt notices every touch, whether to the shoulder, the neck, etc. I especially loved the description of his full-body hugs :) I think Blaine's personality definitely comes out in these moments of physical contact: he's friendly, he's lonely, and he's crazy about Kurt. Oh, and the Rachel and David thing! That pairing has never crossed my mind and all of a sudden I find myself feeling that this is the kind of guy I could see Rachel with, considering I'm not really a Rachel/Finchel fan.

Can't wait for more updates; you really know how to tell a story! :)

Oh, I don't mind lurkers, especially when they prairie dog up to say hello. :D

I think fashion/costuming is such a natural fit for him, too - although I can't imagine him ever giving up performing. But he's going to know that unless he writes his own parts, he's going to have to fill in the time with another line of work.

I could go for one of those full body hugs, I'm just saying... :D (And thank you so much, for the comment, and for supporting the choices I made with the story. <3)

I really really don't want this story to be over at chapter 12:( I'm dreading the end. I love this story so much, everything about it! I just want it to keep going:) (already hoping for a sequel!)

This is-but I--crying
Okay, I typed the subject and now 2 minutes later, I can form slightly coherent sentences.

I love you.

I love this story.

I love the way you've written all the characters. They're perfect.

Here, have my first born.

Bless you, bless this story, bless your family, bless your cow.

THANK YOU. I do plan on sending your firstborn back once it needs to be potty trained, but I'll take care of everything up until then.

They may come back wanting a pair of sensible heels and tea parties.

(Thank you.)

1. It is SCANDALOUS that people don't lay wreaths at your feet daily. SCANDALOUS.

2. I love that it does.

3. The feeling is mutual. <3

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.
