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 )

Oh god. Such a perfect, perfect ending. I can't wait for the epilogue, and YAY! EBOOK! So I can put it on my reader and keep it for always!

You captured their love story so eloquently and beautifully, and I just want to wrap them up in my arms forever!

Honestly, I can't put into words how much I have enjoyed reading this story every single day. This time of year is a bit rough for me, and your story made me forget the crap for a few minutes every day, and gave me something awesome to look forward to every morning. Thank you so much.

You can! And you can right now, it's already posted! <3

I want to wrap your comment in my arms forever, ha! Thank you so much. I know what you mean about this time of year being rough, so if I was able to put a smile on your face, then that's thanks enough. :)

Wonderful chapter. I really loved Kurt's song choices. This line was perfection Okay. So this is what stage fright is. I really don’t like it.

I have so many feelings. So many. A lot of them involve hugging and weird delighted shrieking.

Can't believe this is nearly it. I'm excited to see what happens, but also really sad that it will be over. (I might not read the epilogue tomorrow, anyway, both to prolong this lovely experience and because we do Christmas on the 24th in Scandinavia. "No, mum, I can't come to dinner right now, there are adorable gay boys on the internet.")

I enjoy those feelings of yours! :D

Oh, you're in Scandinavia! In case I have the right region, God jul! And varsågod for all of the lovely feedback you've given me over the past two weeks.

I need you to virtually cuddle me because I am broken. I can not believe this is the end. I think my heart has stopped beating or something because I cant move and I'm just heart broken. I know there will be an epilogue but this is the last chapter. This is the end. I just have no words. 

You don't understand how long it took me to open up this chapter and even then I just stared at the page without reading. I adored the beginning and how Rachel truly supported Kurt before he took the stage and those few texts from Blaine warmed my heart :) you freaking amaze me!!! Look at this line; "faces that began to blend into a multi-hued kaleidoscope of humanity" - HOW CAN SOMETHING SO SIMPLE BE WRITTEN SO BEAUTIFULLY?! I've Still Got My Health was amazing! I adored the song choice.  Then Defying-Freakin-Gravity came on and I burst into tears. I am so emotional right now. And then when my tears were running, Make Someone Happy appeared and I lost it. I literally broke down into sobs. And then after all the tears... I smiled. 
"you didn't use the waterproof brand?"
"it's a figure of speech" BLESS THESE TWO YOUNG ADULTS! ... I'm sorry okay but you can't bloody place in the adorable Klaine line "you take my breath away, ra ra ra..." and expect me not cry all over again! :'( and then - and then.... Kurt says "Let's go home" snjfosjfndnd. My heart can't take this! And that whole ending... I just can't do this right now. Please just virtually cuddle me. I will express more love adoration for you as a writer and person tomorrow but for now just cuddle me because this was perfect. Absolutely beautiful. It was the perfect ending. 
Heaps of love and cuddles; Stephanie. <3

That...Kurt, you take my breath away. Just...tonight on that stage? I’m so proud to be with you.”

Kurt held him tight, swaying their bodies side to side gently, his body shaking with small laughs and the force of his happiness. He whispered into Blaine’s ear, “I hope so. I want you to be.”


THAT LINE. AND THE WAY YOU CHANGED IT A LITTLE TO FIT THIS AND REVERSED THEIR PLACES. SO PERFECT, I CAN'T.



Yay for Rachel being back, I kind of missed her last chapter. I love how she was helping him practice the songs. Hummelberry <3

I knew it, I knew one of those songs would be Defying Gravity! It describes Kurt and his struggles so well, it's everything he is and I am just so proud of him! BB deserves it so much! *proud momma creys*

AND THAT LAST SONG AND SINGING IT TO BLAINE(HOW FREAKING ROMANTIC IS THAT?!) AND BEING IN LOVE AND THEN DANCING TO IT WHEN THEY'RE ALONE AND BEING IN LOVE AND KISSING AND DID I MENTION THEM BEING IN LOVE?



I really, REALLY don't want this to end, but I understand why it must. It's been such an amazing and emotional experience reading, but i'll save you all that sap till the Epilogue tomorrow :P

Okay, I so didn't read this chapter twice, nope, totally did not!

It was amazing! I love the routine that Kurt and Rachel have for the show; they're adorable. Also, Blaine's text messages, cute! Plus YOU ADDED COURAGE! YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU RIGHT NOW FOR THAT!

HIS SONGS! AMAZING! HE SANG DEFYING GRAVITY! AND MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY! FLAWLESS! IT CAN'T BE MORE FLAWLESS! WHY CAN'T I GET OFF CAPSLOCK?!!

“That...Kurt, you take my breath away. Just...tonight on that stage? I’m so proud to be with you.”

Kurt held him tight, swaying their bodies side to side gently, his body shaking with small laughs and the force of his happiness. He whispered into Blaine’s ear, “I hope so. I want you to be.”


It's reversed! I mean....I just...well
Photobucket

AND

Blaine murmured, “I wanted to give you and your family a chance to celebrate.”

Kurt kissed his cheek and gave his hand a squeeze. “Precisely why you should be here, too.”


HE IS PART OF THE FAMILY! THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS!

Also It's pretty great, too. In fact, the great stuff is a whole hell of a lot better than the bad stuff, if you pick 'em right. Seriously, Burt Hummel, the Life Advice guy!

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!

[I cannot wait for the epilogue tomorrow and the supposed marriage! I love this story, tomorrow will be awesome early Christmas present!]

I'm so glad that my imagined friendship for Rachel and Kurt works - I just LOVE THE IDEA OF THEM AS BFFs. Love it. Especially happy to know that the moments of canon I slipped in here and there weren't intrusive, YAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I've appreciated every comment, truly.

I love you, you know that, right? Seriously, you amaze me with every single chapter. I'm kind of on cloud 9 here, all fluffy and lovely (I totally need it, I was internetless again this morning and I'm all ugh and sick again so this makes me BEYOND happy).

I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE EPILOGUE.

Also, the ebook file because mummy got me an ebook reader for Christmas!! It shall be the first story I load onto it tomorrow morning. ♥

Forever loving you, this fic and your brain for thinking it up and producing it.

Oh, that's amazing that you've gotten choked up! (Well, for me at least, ha!) Thank you so much for sticking with me through this whole thing.

Oh, I've written loads, only a few Glee/Klaine fics, though, but I intend on writing more. THANK YOU for that, too!

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.
