Fic: Where There's Smoke Klaine AU [9/12+]

Author: Stoney
Title: Where There's Smoke [9/12+]
Rating: NC-17 Dirty bass line...
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine, Wes and David friendship, mentions of former Finn/Rachel
Word Count:10,400/100,000
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.


Back when it was just him and his father, taking care of his dad – and to some extent, himself – had just come naturally. At first it was out of necessity, but it became who he now was, someone that stared down fear and kept going. It hadn't occurred to him that he could have left before Blaine had returned; he hadn't needed to make sure Blaine had been taken care of, he just...did it. He wanted to take care of Blaine, not because Blaine couldn't do for himself – he clearly could – but because Kurt could. And he really, really wanted to.Collapse )

I literally could not stop smiling throughout this chapter! My face hurts... And it's all your fault! :P I don't mind though. I had to pause to have the right music a few times (I think once 'Jealousy' by Darren came on, and it just did not make sense to have that on during the amazing parts!). Kurt's version of 'I want to hold your hand' started playing just at the part where Blaine was snoring in his sleep (soooo cute <3) and right after, Darren's 'Don't You' came on, I thought it was perfect! (iTunes is all knowing once again!) Everything is so perfect! -le sigh- I love it all! Definitely one of my favorite chapters! :3

YAY FOR OUCHY FACES! Ahahaha. That's awesome. And I love that you have a reading playlist, because I totally had a playlist to write this. :D (ITunes is kinda creepy, right?)

Thank you. I'm super glad it's still working for you. *hugs*

This was STUNNING. I had to stop reading for a minute to gain composure. Honestly, this has been the best. I don't know how you're gonna take this story any further because it's reached sheer PERFECTION. Love it; please keep us entertained!

He wanted to give something back to Blaine, to show him that he mattered, that Kurt wanted him every bit as he wanted Kurt. That they weren't alone anymore.
OMG. You hit it out of the ballpark. Best description of the why of sex ever.

Kurt held his breath, hardly believing this was an actual conversation and not just a fantasy as he stood in his kitchen bored, whipping up a batch of seven minute frosting.
Loved that. Totally captures the wonder and the "OMG how can this be real?" of new love.

It's so funny how I feel like I'm reading my life story, even though hello, I'm not dating a firefighter or living in New York, not from Ohio, not Blaine, not Kurt (okay, well maybe I'm Kurt, a little). But the emotional tenor of falling in love as an adult - well, this captures everything for me.

I'm glad you're enjoying this! I am in love with falling in love (the concept, I'm not a serial dater, or anything, ha) so it's gratifying to hear that I'm getting those emotions in there. THANK YOU.

Perfect. I really don't have anything else to say about it. It was so tender, so loving and beautiful. Seriously, that wasn't at all like the smutty scenes I'm used to by now (especially in this fandom), but I loved every word. Gosh, these two deserve a happy ending! <3 You're such a talented writer, damn. This story is wonderful in so, so many ways that my heart's kind of bursting with feelings! *____*

WORDS CAN'T DESCRIBE MY LOVE FOR THIS FIC, THEY JUST CAN'T.

It's like, when you're reading or watching a great love story and you're just smiling, and crying and clutching at your heart the whole time (and I did all of these things while reading this chapter) because you would just kill to experiences that kind of love? Sigh, I am so cheesy, but I love you for writing this. It's seriously made my week. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Okay, I'll stop gushing now lol.

Okay, I saw the rating, jumped for joy and immediately stopped eating breakfast. So you've managed to separate me from food (I swear I'm not a pig!....okay, I am a pig)

So so so beautiful. So hot and then you've wound it down to something that's just simmering and content and gorgeous. Honestly, the amount of love and desire you infuse in these two boys is wonderful.

And dorky Klaine? <3 my response? ----> love makes us act like we are fools

Guh.....that's about as eloquent as I can get right now. Beautiful! Touching! Sexy! Words with exclamation points!!! I feel like I just fell in love for the first time and it's wonderful and I feel full, if that makes any sense. Thank you for that. *hugsfordays*

I may have taken a coffee break at work to read this chapter.

A LOOOOONG coffee break (it's good to be the boss, sometimes).

It was just as wonderful as we all hoped it would be! You built up to it beautifully and it was worth every milligram of tension!

Wow, I was going to say, 10,00+ words? LONG ASS BREAK (unless you skimmed, which, don't tell me if you did. crey) :D

Oh, thank you. THANK YOU!!

Through a combination of smiles and tears, this chapter is breathtaking. seriously.
If I starting making a list of every little thing I love, it would end up being as long as the chapter itself :)
So much love between these too, it just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.
Oh yes, and the pay off was well worth the wait ;)

Well, hello gorgeous icon! KURT. STOP BEING SO BEAUTIFUL. Wait, cancel that, and please continue.

Also, THANK YOU for this. I'm so happy that you think the wait was worth it. (Blaine did, too. Heh.)

I'm on vacation, yet still waking up early every morning waiting for this fic to update, I love it so much. This chapter was just amazing - hot and smutty but so sweet and tender too. The love these boys (men) have for each other is so real and raw - sigh!

Dec. 20th, 2011 09:21 pm (UTC)
WHAT?! YOU SHOULD SLEEP IN ON VACATION!! (That's a serious compliment, and I thank you for it, even if I feel a smidge guilty.) I'm so happy to know you enjoyed this, thank you for that!

My god, this was beautifully done. I'm so impressed with the depth of emotion you have put into this story. I'm pretty in love with it. I am so looking forward to it being complete, so I can sit down and reread all at once.

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.
