Title: Where There's Smoke [12/12+E]
Rating: Fer Errbody
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine, Wes and David friendship, mentions of former Finn/Rachel
Word Count: 5100/100,000
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. :)

Kurt had dropped his family back at their hotel with meticulously written instructions for how to get on the subway, how to behave on the subway, who to not speak to on the subway, and how to get to the area by Turtle Pond where his performance would be held.Collapse )

I woke up, glanced at the clock and squealed as I knew (well hoped based on previous days) that this would be waiting for me. This story has been my wake up for the past week and I end up re-reading it sometime during the day when feeling withdrawal. I just love it so much. The scrapbook of pics is so cute and I totally want to make a real scrapbook now of these boys as a gift for them. I'm heading to NY next month I'll just bring it by the station :). I cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings and I'm so excited about the download so I can take this story with me everywhere! Thank you again for such an amazing escape into this wonderful world.

Ha!! Smart lady, yep, I had a scheduled time for posting! (A little late today because I was dragging from this dumb sinus infection, but only by a half hour!) I'm SO PLEASED that the scrapbook is fun for people and not something super indulgent on my end. I just loved their world. :)

And the download and epi. are posted! <3

Dec. 24th, 2011 02:10 am (UTC)
Aww, thanks, Nony! <3

*Sigh* My heart is so very full right now.....I am so in love with this story and the way you write both of them.

I adored the song choices - so completely Kurt, that I just burst into tears at the thought of hearing him sing "Make Someone Happy"......

I don't want this to end!!!
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:11 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you so much!! I'm overjoyed that the characterization rings true. That's my main intent with this, so YAY. And I am INCREDIBLY happy that the song choices I made worked! I really was biting my nails on that one...

Dec. 23rd, 2011 04:48 pm (UTC)
Can't wait for the ebook file! Kurt had a great performance and a great day! I loved the switched in the dialogue between K&B that you did, you know what I'm talking about!

Really hoping you do a sequel for this once this is done as I don't want to say goodbye to them yet! :)
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:12 am (UTC)
You don't have to wait, for I have posted it! :D Oh, hooray that the switched dialog worked for you, YAY! Haha, of course I know what you're talking about! <3

Ho, jeez. What a perfect and sweet chapter. I'm so moved by those boys. All my love for you and your amazing story! I'm so sad to see it end, though. Can't wait for the epilogue and the ebook, I'm sure I'm gonna re-read this fic a lot of times!
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:14 am (UTC)
Boy, I really worried that people would just be eye rolling this chapter, so I am SO GLAD it made you happy!! *sings Maaaaaaake someone happy, make just oooooone someone happy....*

You don't have to wait, I've just posted them! And thank you so much for being so supportive and sticking with me. <3
Dec. 23rd, 2011 04:59 pm (UTC)

Dec. 24th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
I'm happy you've been acquainted with the beauty that is Cole Porter! You can't go wrong with any of his songs. :) I'm sorry I made you cry (ha, that's a LIE!) but I'm so glad you enjoyed this. THANK YOU.
Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:03 pm (UTC)
So happy and lovely. Finn being all awkward around them kissing and Blaine being soo excited around Burt/Carole but trying to restrain himself and just jfioewafew.


So sad this is almost over! Guh. Just so many feelings and those two are so in love. <3333
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:16 am (UTC)
Hahaha, I love the idea of Finn staring at them, then realizing he's staring, and then freaking out. Hee.

Thank you so much, I've appreciated every single comment you've left me. <3
Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:04 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad that it is a happy end!
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:16 am (UTC)
I promised I would end it happy! :D
Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:07 pm (UTC)
This story actually isn't allowed to end tomorrow. Well all voted, and decided that you have to keep churning out daily updates for the rest of your life. Did nobody tell you that?
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:16 am (UTC)
Um...it ended tonight? I'M SORRY. And hahahahaha, wait, WHAT?!?

Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:15 pm (UTC)
No no no it's not allowed to end! I love this so much. I hope you're planning a sequel. Lots of them, with fluff and babies and Klainebows everywhere xx
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:17 am (UTC)
I'm so sorry, but it eventually has to!! I am planning on a few one-shots, though.

Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:23 pm (UTC)
Ah, that was so sweet. Great almost-ending to a wonderful story. I was afraid at the end of the previous chapter with Blaine running off to an emergency just before the show that some tragedy might strike, so I held tightly to the fact that you said you don't do character death.

Splendid. Lovely. Thank you!

And now... looking forward to epilogue! ;)
Dec. 24th, 2011 02:18 am (UTC)
You guys!! I promised I wouldn't pull the rug out from under you, and no one believed me! hahahaha. I LOVE A HAPPY ENDING FOR KLAINE. Love it. <3

Thank you SO SO much, you have just been an amazing support for this story. <3 (epilogue is posted!)

*holds you*

There are some one-shots planned, so take heart! Also, I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support and sweet comments, THANK YOU. (And I will never stop writing! <3)
Dec. 23rd, 2011 05:27 pm (UTC)

YES YES YES YES... this is GORGEOUS... gorgeous story is gorgeous...and OH MY GOSH, it is over... I only have the epilogue to look forward to... cryyyyyyyy... but you've written it so gorgeous and everything is wonderful! I love all of it! ALL OF IT! Especially all the fluffy thoughts Kurt thinks about life and love and BLAINE and how he goes back to his father's words so many times.. especially as you end the story. Gorgeous.

UGH. Incoherent, I am.

Dec. 23rd, 2011 06:11 pm (UTC)
As I saw your comment, all I have in my head is:


Love it. LOVE IT.

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.
