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'm at a loss for words; really. I just happened to run into this fic by accident and fell COMPLETELY in love. Everything about this love story has been so perfect in every way and I really am hesitant to read the epilogue because that means it's the end. I'm sure I'll say all of the same things tomorrow but congratulations on your masterpiece.

From one of your biggest fans,
Someone who apparently was NOT at a loss for words.

I'm not crying, there's just a branch stuck on both of my eyes. Okay, fine, I am but they are tears of joy. I almost didn't want to read this chapter cause I knew it was the end. But this fic is just too hard to resist. I really did not think I'd fall so much in love with a story. I feel like I just read one of those deep and influential adult-fiction books that make me think about life and that one day I'll find someone.
I'm so happy for Kurt, and Blaine too. Oh and I loved the songs Kurt sang I hadn't heard two of them, but if Kurt did ever sing them I'm sure he'd do them justice.
If I was any good at baking I'd make you a cheesecake, actually I don't even know if those are baked xD So maybe some brownies instead.
Okay now imma go look at the pictures on that link and just relive the story in my head once again.

LOL, and OUCH! And thank you so much, I'm so glad to know you enjoyed this story and that the songs are new to you (they're old school standards, and wonderful in their own way, imo.)

I WILL TAKE A CHEESECAKE (and yes, you bake them! You are a genius for guessing! :D) Thank you so much. <3

This is an amazing story, I am so glad now that I stayed up to read it tonight. ALL THE FEELS. You did an awesome job working dialogue from the show into the story. ;)
Dec. 24th, 2011 04:32 pm (UTC)
ALL NIGHT!? You must be so tired... But thank you, so much!! I appreciate your reading and taking the time to comment! <3

My god, you planned this really well, didn't you? It's a Christmas gift for us all! ♥

Ha! Um, maybe... :) (Aw, thanks!)

oh my god. the whole time after they exchanged 'i love you's and Blaine had this 'short shift' before concert I had my heart in my throat beating like crazy, because everything was so perfect, I was so scared you'll yank the story back to the 'we die' thing they angsted about in the beginning x_____x and while kurt's family was visiting, aaaaaaaall the time I was like, oh my god, alarm will went off right about now and Blaine gonna injure himself or die OH MY GOD NOOOOOOO. And then, two minutes before shift's end alarm goes off OH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. YOU TROLL. And all while Kurt was cool about it, like, he's a pro, he'll be fine, I was like OMG NO NO NO STONEY'll KILL HIM KURT, OR INJURE HIM BAD, 'CAUSE IT'S OBVIOUS PLOT THING, HANG OOOOOOOOOON.

so, obviously, I was relived to extreme degree when Kurt his messages. Oh boy.

Anyway, I loved this fic lots :D Your writing style is good, I enjoyed it lots x)
Dec. 25th, 2011 03:23 am (UTC)
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS. I would not DO THAT TO YOU. (lol) I wouldn't kill him or maim him!! *cries* But I am so glad you ended up relieved that I didn't destroy your soul.

Is it weird that I sort of had to hum along to their singing-scales conversation at the start? I did.

Then we had Kurt's fantastic performance -- and great idea to link to the songs, becuase it really set the tone for me to imagine it -- and then afterwards:

Blaine pulled back, framing Kurt’s face in his hands. “That was single-handedly the most romantic thing in my life.” He kissed Kurt, a sweet press to the lips as his thumbs stroked across Kurt’s cheeks. He pulled back, eyes closed and cheek to cheek. “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.”

I think Blaine would consider it the most romantic thing ever (the boy is a fan of big gestures) but I loved the re-using of canonical lines. It's not always easy to work it in a way that feels both familiar and fresh, but you nailed it just right.

“We didn’t mean to exclude you,” Blaine said, holding his arms out.

Finn looked positively panic-stricken until Blaine laughed and squeezed his bicep in a friendly manner.

Not only is it NOT weird, I do it too! Haha. <3 I'm so happy you liked the music links, I think they're wonderful Kurt songs, but you never know how other people will think.

You are the FIRST PERSON to either get or comment on that joke with Blaine offering to give Finn a snog, too. Ha! YOU WIN MY HEART. <3

Another fantastic chapter! Loved kurts song choices! Those two boys are just so adorably romantic. Loved them singing and dancing around, was just adorable.

Saw that the epilogue was up early, but will leave it for later to read. Don`t want the story to be over!
Dec. 25th, 2011 03:24 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!! They really are just ridiculously romantic, aren't they?! <3 <3

Thank you so much for reading and commenting!

It is so, so good to see Kurt succeeding, to see Blaine being there for him. And for Kurt to sing a song for Blaine, wow. MY HEART. ♥
Dec. 27th, 2011 09:41 pm (UTC)
THANK YOU THANK YOU!! I just want more Kurt singing to Blaine songs on Glee, you know? (Or, um, maybe ONE? ONE WOULD BE GOOD.)

Thanks so much. <3 <3 <3

I haven't had a TV since the beginning of November, which means I missed all my annual sappy Hallmark Channel holiday movies. THIS MADE UP FOR 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.
