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 )

Oh god, I'm going to try not to yell with excitement this time, but it is so hard!! It is possible for your heart to break from happiness? Because when they exchanged their "I love yous", my heart just went boom. And Burt! And Finn!! And CAROLE!!

This needs to be a podfic. And then I would listen to it constantly.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:22 am (UTC)
THAT IS SO NICE TO HEAR!!! Aww, your poor bursting from happy heart. <3

Thank you so, so much!

Akjshasdf I cannot, this is too amazing. I just love the Hummel-Hudsons so much, and Blaine being all nervy and adorable makes my heart grow three sizes.

(We have the same Tumblr theme. CLEARLY, SOULMATES.)
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:25 am (UTC)
OMG, I love that family so much, it's ridiculous. SAME THEME?! I'll call the wedding planner. :D

Um. Okay. Just needed to get that out. I really loved this chapter. All that family stuff was perfect and your Finn is hilarious in the best possible way. Also, this chapter was further proof that Burt is the best parent in the history of parents. You write everyone so well. I can't believe this was already chapter 11, though. I'll be sad to see this end. I will definitely re-read it.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:38 am (UTC)
They did, they did! IT'S LOOOOOOOVE!!! <3

I'm so glad Finn was fun and funny! (He's fun to write.) Just..thank you!! So, so much. <3 <3

This story is fan fucking tastic. I adore your writing in every way possible. I actually had to bite my cheeks to keep from laughing out loud at Blaine's discomfort when meeting Kurt's family. I actually find myself smiling while I read! I love you!!
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
YOU are fan fucking tastic! :D Thank you so much!! I'm glad you are enjoying this, WOOT!
Dec. 22nd, 2011 10:59 pm (UTC)
Wonderful chapter. I really liked seeing Blaine interacting with Kurt's family. The I love you scene's were both written beautiful. I have to say though that the last paragraph is my favorite.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:40 am (UTC)
You are the FIRST PERSON to love that paragraph, I have been getting PM'd like crazy, people reading dread into it. THANK YOU. Seriously. THANK YOU. <3 <3 <3

I just had to say that because it was so sweet and it like cemented what they both felt, I just love it.

Meeting of the parents was successful Blaine, good job!

He was so nervous, but I guess because of his father he didn't quite know what to expect with Burt. I'm sure he was surprised. He was also surprised with Carole, know I'm wondering if his mother wasn't that affectionate too. I think in the end, he'll adore both Carole and Burt, he and Finn get along well.

I can just picture Kurt and Blaine visiting Ohio for Thanksgiving or Christmas, all five of them just being a family! And...and As they walked out of the station, Kurt noticed that the normal feeling he had when the four of them were together, that warm and secure feeling of them as a family, felt off. He realized that it was because there was one person missing. Kurt smiled to himself and placed a hand over his heart. It's official, Blaine is now part of the Hudmels, I am in love.

I can't wait for tomorrow, we finally get to see/read Kurt's performance and I will finally learn which song his finale song is!

(Also, is it bad that I noticed the lack of Rachel? I was just wondering where she was at and if she'll be at the performance to cheer Kurt on)

[Dear story: My love for you grows exponentially with each chapter. See you tomorrow! <3]

Blaine had never been allowed to just relax - not with his sexuality or even just himself, his father constantly put him on edge. He has no bar to measure by, so thank goodness he had Burt Hummel to tell him to settle down, he's great. :D

BLAINE IS OFFICIALLY FAMILY, YES!!! Rachel will be back, this was just all about the immediate family. :D

Happy tears! SO MANY HAPPY TEARS! :) ohmygoodnes. I absolutely adore you and your writing, and they said I LOVE YOU to eachother. *sniffles* the whole chapter was so beautiful and Blaine being nervous was adorable and Finn just cracked me up! That ending where Blaine slid down the pole and said "Love You" to Kurt made me smile so wide! You really do have a knack for making me tear up while reading these recent chapters! I actually have no idea what I am going to do now that this story is inches away from the end. As I said yesterday, there will be tears and inchorent sentences due to keyboard smashing. I love this story to pieces (if you didn't already know) and I will continue to say it until you understand how much of an amazing writer you are. Never stop writing. See you tomorrow lovey <3
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:43 am (UTC)
Aww, tears?! *passes tissues* I am so overwhelmingly happy that you've loved this little story of mine, and have been just aces with reading and commenting. THANK YOU THANK YOU.

*hugs tight*

Thank you so much!! Hopefully I don't drop the ball with the performance. Thank you for coming back and commenting!

You are beyond incredible. I have zero words of criticism for you. This story is, hands down, the best quality, and most original chapter fic I have ever read in the glee fandom. I am absolutely in love with your take on these characters, and your world you've placed them in. I found this story last night and could not wait to get home from work today to finish reading the rest. Like many others, I'm so sad it's coming to an end. I've fallen in love with this universe. Any plans for additional works in the fireman!verse? (Please say yes.)

P.S. Firemen are suddenly a turn on. Thank you for that.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 12:46 am (UTC)
Firefighters are SO EFFING HOT. The chicks, too, I don't want to be exclusionary. :D

Thank you, truly, from the bottom of my heart for this comment; I appreciate it so much. I do have plans for little moments, different POV scenes, but not a full-on sequel, or a complete retelling from Blaine's POV - I think that would become dreadfully dull for the reader.

But yes, little things because I'm not ready to let go of this little world just yet, either! <3

So I really REALLY tried not to start this fic until it was fully posted (only lasted like four days ha) because I just KNEW it would be special (oh, there you are, I've been looking for you forever) and it would be torturous to wait for the next chapter. However, as torturous as it is, it's also extremely gratuitous to wake up to a new chapter every day (I'm a college kid on winter break so...sleeping in?) and enjoying every part, just taking it piece by piece and rolling around in it and extending that feeling for thirteen days rather than knocking it out in one night. Sigh. I adore everything about this fic. It's SO them. I just. Love it.

Also, how many weeks into their relationship are they at this point? Well, I guess I mean how many weeks since they met?
Dec. 23rd, 2011 01:14 am (UTC)
GOTCHA! haha. SO glad you dove in! And I'm extremely happy you're enjoying the story and that they feel true - that's my #1 goal. <3

Well, I pictured the story starting at the first of June - right after Kurt had graduated from Tisch and got his ducks in a row to move. So at this point, the performance is the last of August. They're been seeing each other/interested in each other for a few months now.

(you know it is!)

AWWWWW! The meeting of Burt went well and ILY!!!! ILY!!! ILY!!!! I just can't even with this story and it's cuteness! I just can't!
Dec. 23rd, 2011 01:56 am (UTC)
FINN DID, HE DID!! I mentioned in another comment that he probably texted Puck, too. :D (And then went off on a tangent and story, and I LOVE THESE GUYS.)

I'm so glad you're still with me!!! Two more to go... <3
Dec. 23rd, 2011 01:59 am (UTC)

Ahem. SO late today. For some reason, I had no internet when I woke up at 6 am this morning and it didn't come back on until noon. So annoyed.

Anyway, this chapter was amazing. Ahh, Burt, you make me so happy. Kind of makes me wish I had a dad but eh, I've survived 25 years without one. ;) Burt Hummel should get all the awards, though.


Dec. 23rd, 2011 04:23 pm (UTC)
OH NO!! I hate when technology fails me. HATE. But I'm glad you were able to get back online and read and then come tell me nice things about my story. HAHAHA. THANK YOU for that. (And yes yes! It's a Chrismukwanzuhkah Miracle!!)

There is so much to love about this.

For you, too, BB. For you, too. <3

I have had a crazy busy day starting at 7:30 am, and all day I've just wanted to be able to read this update, because...


You did an amazing job making that seem right time wise and it was just perfect...PERFECT!

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.
