Title: Where There's Smoke [11/12+E]
Rating: Fer Errbody
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine, Wes and David friendship, mentions of former Finn/Rachel
Word Count: 10,600/100,000
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. Also, I am ultimately a romantic, I don't write character death, I love writing happy endings, and Kurt and Rachel live in my dream place in Carroll Gardens (it's modeled after an actual 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. Also, FringeFest does not currently have a Broadway segment to their lineup, but they should. :)


Blaine kept futzing with the collar of his shirt, trying to make it lay just right. Kurt playfully brushed his hands away so he could take over the task. 'Stop worrying, it's just my dad.'Collapse )

HUDMELS AND I LOVE YOU'S AND FRINGS, OH MY! Blaine being all jittery and clueless about how to act was a little sad and adorable at the same time. Burt getting a kick out of freaking him out was hilarious, and I love that Carole was immediately so warm and loving. Dudebro!Finn is my favorite, too. I made an ugly cryface when Blaine said the words, and I was right there with him when he almost floated in the air by sheer force of his happiness. And idk how Blaine's knees didn't buckle when Kurt said them back. *_____*

This story remains flawless, and I am so upset that it's ending tomorrow. :( Thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this and sharing it with us.

FRINGS!!!! There will never be a Sophie's Choice in a burger joint again! *sobs brokenly with relief*

Poor Blaine, but the Hudmels won't let him be stand-offish for too long, I'm sure. THANK YOU for your comments and awesome support. REALLY.

(But you get a loooong epilogue on Saturday, too!) <3

I LOVE BURT!
Poor Blaine, was totally terrified!! But Hummel-Hudson's family is awesome! I totally imagine them like that! Did I already say that I love 'your' Finn? He is just so...Finn?
hahahaha
and the 'I love you' scene? WONDERFUL! Got my heart melting... :)

well, I cannot believe we have only two more chapters, so I'm gonna start now: how about another story on this Universe? :D
hahaha, I really need this!!!! It is my daily obsession! :))

I LOVE BURT, TOO!!!

Oh, thank you for saying that about Finn, I appreciate that! (I adore Finn. I know, it's fun in fandom to hate on him, but he can't help being a doof.) And thank you so much for all of the comments and sticking with me! <3

I am so completely in love with this story. I may or may not have spent all day yesterday reading it from the beginning, and now there's only one chapter left and I never want it to end!

Absolutely love this!

My heart, oh my God. I loved reading about the Hudmels with Blaine, I could easily picture them become a family. And once again, those boys with their feelings are adorable. Can't wait for Kurt to rock out on stage.

Kurt performs tomorrow! See you then. ;D

Oh you wonderful writer you! THEY FINALLY SAID I LOVE YOU! My heart melted - Blaine was so cute with the family. He won't be late to Kurt's gig right?! Or miss it?! D:

Loved it! So good; the family introduction was exactly how it should have been, especially when Kurt brought up Blaine's father. Please, please delight with Kurt's show tomorrow!

Whenever you update I always feel obligated to leave you something, even though you always updated when I am an emotional mess of sorts and incoherant, half asleep. But honestly, dis fic... I can't even do words, man. This part 'Blaine went still, his eyes closed. When he opened them, he laid his hand on his heart and said softly, “It’s yours.”' had me in literal tears. I had to pause my reading to make a post about it on tumblr. Just... fuck. It was one of the most tender, sweet, earnest moments I've ever read in a fic, EVER. I can just picture it clearly in my mind and I never want to let it goooo.

I'll be very sad when this fic is over, but I am sure it will be one that I'll enjoy reading over and over again, picking out the little moments I've missed and falling in love with your magic once more.

Thank you x

LITERAL TEARS!! Waaah, I'm sorry! (not even a little bit, actually, lol) Hahaha about having to post on tumblr, that's awesome. THANK YOU.

Thank you SO MUCH for reading and commenting, I really appreciate it. <3

Anderhudmels is basically everything I need in my life. Really. I can't imagine anything better than those five all together. And I just loved the little tidbits you put in about Carole's clothes, Finn's eating, Burt and working. It was so them!

Anderhudmels FTW!

Complete. That’s what this is. The kiss, while chaste, meant something new. It was as if they were making an agreement, a decision that from this point forward, it would be them together. Kurt didn’t want to tiptoe around Blaine’s life, he wanted it to become their life. Their shared moments, their shared setbacks and triumphs. But it would be the two of them facing it all together. He realized that he wasn’t alone anymore, wouldn’t be alone again. He had someone, and that someone had him in equal measure.



I JUST...THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE REDUCED ME TO, I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY! I DON'T KNOW WHETHER TO CRY OR LAUGH OR CRY FROM LAUGHING OR LAUGH FROM CRYING (wait, what?) THIS STORY AND THESE BOYS JUST GIVE ME ALL THE FEELINGS.

*ahem* Seriously though, such a wonderful chapter and perfect meeting the parents scenario! It's a shame we didn't get it on the show, but this is exactly how I imagine it would've gone! Nervous Blaine was so adorable, Burt deserves every award ever, Carole was very sweet and motherly and Finn and his one liners had me loling so hard! I just love your sense of humour, it's so witty! I would quote my fav lines, but then i'd have to quote like half of the fic and that would be a pretty long comment. Anyway.

LA LA LA THEY'RE HAPPY AND THEY'RE IN LOOOOVE AND KURT IS ALREADY PLANNING THEIR WEDDING



I just have to say reading this story is seriously the highlight of my day, I wish it didn't have to end, but alas. I can't wait for Kurt's performance!

I AM! I AM HAPPY, so THERE! Ahahaha, I like that you are cry-laughing about laugh-crying while caugh lying. ALL OF IT. I am excite.

How amazing would it have been to have this? (Maybe we'll get it with the Andersons...) and also: THANK YOU. Thank you for reading, for commenting, for chatting about what you liked, THANK YOU.

burt! he makes every story better. this continues to be wonderful. any thought about writing some from blaine's pov?
stoney321
Dec. 22nd, 2011 11:46 pm (UTC)
He really does, right?! And thank you thank you for sticking with me.As for Blaine's POV, IDK - I do have a few ideas for little snippets of story, but I'm not sure if any of them are from his POV. WE SHALL SEE. I won't rule it out, but I'm not really thinking of any at the moment.

I had a huge grin on my face while reading this chapter... happy sigh... It was probably cheesy, but just right sort of cheese, you know...
I'm a little sad, cause all good things must come to an end, and there's only one part left
stoney321
Dec. 22nd, 2011 11:47 pm (UTC)
Oh, yay!! Oh, cheese, I love it. Hopefully this wasn't lame cheesy, but I just want them to be happy, finally!

*hugs* There are TWO parts left! (Epilogue!)

Oh, so much love for this chapter. It's perfect--so warm, and welcoming, those Hudson-Hummels. I ♥ them all.

Finn and the pole was especially adorable. :D

Dec. 22nd, 2011 11:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! And hahaha, FINN. You know he's been dying to slide down the pole, and then he texted Puck and Puck made a dirty joke about him liking pole.

:D

Oh my God. Oh. My. God. This Chapter is all I've ever wanted. I loved the interactions between the Hummel-Hudsons and our beloved Blaine!!! It all seemed so natural. I loved how nervous Blaine was almost the whole Time through, and the way Burt was so amused by it in the beginning. You probably already Know how much I adore your writing style, so another comment about that is Not needed. (although I'd really enjoy to shower you with compliments! You're an amazing writer and a really sweet Person as far as I can tell.) so, Thank you for sharing this fantastic chapter with us. You portay everything so beautifully, and i was more than overwhelmed by the "i Love you" - scenes! It just... Was the right Time for them to say it I think. (especially because they acted like a happily married couple anyway. And I really don't mind.) <3 Ugh, it's kinda obvious how very much in Love I am with this story, isn't it? I Hope you've had a wonderful day so far!

Oh, I am so relieved to hear that it came across as being natural!! That's awesome. (And hahaha, yeah, I've had it up to HERE with the compliments, buddy. ENOUGH, alright?? /dripping with sarcasm])

Thank you SO MUCH. Really. <3 <3 (And I have! Hope you have a lovely evening!)

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.
