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 )

YAY!!! Thank you very much!

Coming home from my final (terrible.. terrible terrible final) to find a new chapter was.. it was the best thing ever. EVER. And I feel slightly creepy because I kind of just want to live on their fire escape and look through their windows and watch their lives (and I'm sure that Blaine would be all "no no, fire escapes are for escaping fires, not creeping on my romantic life")

But jeez. You deserve all of the awards. All of them.

Dec. 21st, 2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
OH NOES TO YOUR FINAL! :( I'm sorry.

Hahaha, Blaine would not let you stay on the fire escape, that is true, but he would invite you in for a drink and cookies (just not oatmeal raisin, those are his favorite and Kurt promised to only make them for him.) :D

Okay, so it's a crappy MSPaint job, but I went in and wrote the title and your name on the firehouse picture to be my temporary cover photo until someone MUCH better than I came along and gave this fic all the fantastic art it deserves. But, just in case you want to veto the pic, I'm putting it up here.

Dec. 21st, 2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
HAHAHAHHA, CJ you are too much. <3

They really are. <3 Well, we've got until Chpt 12 plus an epilogue to go, so I'll let you guess. :D

Thank you for sticking with me!!

I try to stay away from WIPs until they're done/completely posted, but everybody is always referring to this, and I'm only human, so I cracked ;) And I'm soooo glad I did! I LOVE this fic to pieces. Blaine and Kurt are almost too good to be true (i.e. perfect) and I love how you wove David, Wes and RAchel into this as well. And Burt! Forever perfect Burt! Who needs complete sentences anyway? lol

Anyway, this is wonderful. Can't wait for the rest. And I hope to be strong and wait three more days to read all of it in one go - cuz I'm greedy like that :D

Dec. 21st, 2011 02:45 pm (UTC)
OMG, I am totally allergic to WiPs as well, and usually wait until they're finished (or find out if the author is going to bail on them and save myself the heart ache.) So I am VERY grateful that you took a chance! (But it's all written, so there will be a finale!)

Thank you so very much for reading and commenting - the next chapter is just about to be posted, in fact. :) OH, BUT I GUESS YOU'LL HAVE TO WAIT, HUH? hahahaa. (Hope to see you back!) <3

So I stayed up really late reading this. Like really late.4am and eventually I had to force myself to walk away at a break in this chapter, save what notes I had for this comment, and then come back to it in the morning. It wasn't because I was tired or anything. no this fic had me wide awake, I just knew that i needed to go to sleep then, or I wouldn't be worth anything in the morning.

God, I love this story. I have so many, many feelings, you don't even know. I'm sorry if this comment gets a little wordy. I have a tendency to do that sometimes. Let me know if it bugs you that I basically dissect the entirety of the chapter. I'll reign in the crazy if you really want me to. though personally I'd kill for a reader that was so moved by my fic that she had to write a small essay about it in order to get all the feelings out.

Before he drifted back asleep, he had a clear thought, This is where I'm supposed to be. He tightened his hold on Blaine and let sleep take him.
Finally! I feel like Kurt has been dancing at the edge of this for fricking ever, almost there, but not quite admitting to himself how he feels and pulling back when the worries set in. but now, he's just there. yes.

They kissed, Kurt letting go of his fears, of his worries because here was Blaine, solid, in his arms, wanting him every bit as much as Kurt wanted Blaine, and it just felt right.
Again, Yes. Because now the walls are down. he's let go of the fears, and he can just be in the moment with Blaine. not that the fears aren't still there, but they're not driving his decisions anymore. they're more like...a noise in the background.

So, apparently you are well versed in writing fires. not just the real ones, but the ones in the bedroom as well, because Hot Damn Stoney! I just...I'm gonna need a crew to come and put me out after that. *fan's self*

Also, um, Blowjobs through the underwear is a serious kink of mine. you have no idea. I'm just...I'm shaking with excitement at that one. and I might have let out a rather embarrassing moan when I read that Blaine was doing the same to Kurt through his pajama bottoms. hhhhhnnnnngggg

And my heart when Kurt feels completely loved and cherished being on the receiving end with Blaine, after you stated that with previous partners he'd always felt kind of wierd on that end. You are amazing. The feelings. the feelings. Smut is all well and good, but smut with feelings? nothing tops that.

Oh my goodness, sleep talking Blaine is adorable! and the fact that he sleeps through all that but a squeeky board wakes him up is so accurate. Firefighters could be dead to the world, but they're so used to being on alert and having to jump up and be ready at a moments notice that they just snap awake.

I love how before in earlier Chapters, things Blaine said about being a firefighter kept replaying in his mind, scaring him out of the relationship, but now, parallel to that concept of Kurt internalizing everything, he's internalizing his conversation with his Dad and replaying everything his dad said about love, and it's confirming everything that he wants out of this relationship. it's quite a lovely little element.

I love the fireman's prayer and the tradition that Blaine's mom upheld. It's really sweet. I can just see Blaine touching the plaque every time he leaves for work as well.

And I love the such a dork, and he's mine line. Because it's so true. it's that moment you know that you don't care what they're like, because silly, or a dork, or a nerd or whatever, they're your dork or nerd and those things are just endearing.

And the end with the text. It's just so precious. it's so amazing what something so simple and trivial as an emoticon heart can do to one's mood. especially sent from someone you love.

Seriously Stoney. I'm in love with this fic. You have me babbling on and on in the comment boxes, to the point where I have to open a second window and comment as I read, because I don't want to forget anything i wanted to say on this fic. I've only ever done that with one other person, emilianadarling and I adore her fics. I promise you, the fact that I feel the need to do this for you as well is the highest complement ever, because I don't write essays for just anyone.

This is glorious. I can't stop reading this fic! part of me wants to read chapter ten right now, and the other part wants to save it, because if i read chapter ten now, I'll have to wait for chapter 11 till tomorrow. I'm sure I'll survive somehow, but I just want more!

See what I mean about writing a small essay? Two comment boxes, Stoney. Two. not a record for me, but it's been a while since I've felt the Necessity to write a short fic in response to someone's fic. ;)

this is so sweet and sexy <3
their physical intimacy was kind of different for me to read, I'm not sure why. Like, smut is just smut and that's kind of it for me, but right now I can't get the mental images of naked bodies pressed up against each other out of my head.
in a pretty nude photographs kind of way, not just random raunchy porn.

.......generally when I leave comments that make no sense it's a good thing, I promise.
Dec. 22nd, 2011 12:28 am (UTC)
Aw, but smut isn't just smut! THIS WAS LOOOOOOOVE! Hahaha.

I think that it's awesome that you have those images in your head, but then, that wasn't a complaint, right? BECAUSE NAKED KLAINE. <3

So Kurt and Blaine did get to have their kinky fun, once they both had their beauty sleep. ;)

Blaine is such an adorable dork with his bad jokes. I have some friends like that and it's always cutely hilarious whenever they try to do stand-up. So much fail, but you don't care because "A" for effort.
Jan. 29th, 2012 04:42 am (UTC)
I don't know how you do it but you've got me feeling so sweet about these two and making flappy hands at my screen. Yummy smut and they are so precious with their love & insecurities.
Jan. 29th, 2012 05:43 pm (UTC)
It's all voodoo and Santeria. Glad to know those eggs I sacrificed paid off! ;D

I love that you made flappy hands! THEY ARE SO SWEET, I JUST CAN'T. <3

RIP, and may angels' wings carry you to the Land of Nod...

All I can think about is "with feelings, it's better" and I I don't even know what how to deal with myself right now. This is just too perfect and I don't even know anymore. Like, no hope for my love life because I'm not a Hummel.
Also, I'd like to think that Blaine's mother left the prayer there in hopes that he finds someone that will say it for him.
Feb. 4th, 2012 04:35 pm (UTC)
IT IS! Both in fic form and real life.

Aww, that's a lovely thought about Blaine's mother. I can't really say more, because that is a one-shot planned for this universe. *zips lip*
Mar. 24th, 2012 07:11 pm (UTC)
Oh dear god. Kurt...BLAINE! Ugh. You boys. Stop being so adorable. This is killing me. I am like...waiting for the shoe to drop. I'm almost afraid to continue reading. BUT I SHALL! Gosh. Klaine. You boys. No. MEN. Okay, I am bumbling now. Making a fool of myself.
Mar. 24th, 2012 09:49 pm (UTC)

And it's easy to turn into a mumbling blushing girl with these two boys. They make it soooooo easy. :)

Finally getting caught up again!

[I'm exercising a lot of restraint here, not commenting on every little bit i wanted to comment on....]

1. "Is there a this?" >> Is water wet?!

2. "He slid the inside of his foot along Blaine's calf, leaning back and sitting primly. “It's probably better if you take your time" >> Domestic bliss = sexy times. I love the juxtaposition of kurt’s wandering naughty foot, and him sitting primly! And their flirting is delicious. Gosh im hungry. And not for pancakes.

3. Tight charcoal-grey boxer briefs. >> I approve.

4. The whole flash back to The Talk with Burt [you matter, don't throw yourself around...] >> Ah, ok we are all members of the Burt – Best TV Dad EVER – Hummel Appreciation Society, I know, but I simply must state how powerful, and wonderful it was to watch that scene of Burt & Kurt having The Talk. There’s often a load of nonsense on Glee, but then…stuff like that happens, and wow.

5. Also, can we just pause for a moment at the insanely delicate and divine intimacy of ‘Kurt laying his cheek on Blaine’s hipbone, and Blaine threads his fingers through Kurt’s hair’? Urgh. My toes have curled all the way in. Lovely.

6. And he wanted Blaine to feel cherished, adored, desired. It wasn't something he was doing to Blaine; it was something they would share together. >> THIS..this is intimacy, making love, keeping love, sex at it's greatest glory. Graaaagh. I’ve enjoyed Kurt’s Horny-Man Inner Monologue *thoroughly*, but then…something like this? You’re killing me Stoney, with your hot-hot-ouch-that’s-so-intimate-and-hot-and—sexy-stop-no-don’t-keep-writing-oh-please-never-end[yes, that’s one category].

7. You're just for me, aren't you?" : *sob* :

8. "bring their bodies together, eye to eye, mouth to mouth, heart to heart" >> Aaah...

9. "It was difficult for Kurt to keep quiet and not pounce onto Blaine to wake him up for “You are the most adorable thing ever” kisses as he quietly climbed out of the bed." >> Fortunately, I have no such restraint. So, excuse me Kurt, I believe I have some kisses to plant on Blaine.

10. "Courage. He kissed the center of Blaine's chest, needing to express himself physically. “I worry about people I love. I worry about you.” >> Courage. COURAGE!! Aaajaukdgufchsagc ! Is it weird to get so excited about that word? I love how you used it here, how you’ve incorporated SO PERFECTLY who Kurt & Blaine are into this universe.

11. Omg...the whole 'thrill me with your wit' / 'dorky jokes' Scene: Hahahahaha!! *tries to wipe stupid smile off face* . *Fails* . Nothing better than laughing with your loved one in bed. Mm mm.

12. Kurt looking at his phone, with the tiny teeny emoticon of lurve:: JUST STOP IT! Ok, no. NEVER STOP. I’m humming with delight – isn’t it wonderful, the feeling of looking down at a simple little text message, and not wanting to turn off your phone’s screen …yes. Mm. I love how you delight in these tiny [but so significant] joys of love!

Jul. 13th, 2012 06:06 pm (UTC)
Ha! I love your restraint. ;)

3. I just... yeah. That's what he wears because boy, do I like that visual. /creepy writer
4. I actually love the nonsense, but when they get emotional, boy, do they do it well.
11. Isn't that the truth? That's when you know you're with a good one, when you can laugh and joke when you're nekkid. :)

I am so happy that you're enjoying this!! <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.

Time Wot It Is
