Title: Where There's Smoke [The EPILOGUE]
Rating: Fer Errbody (overall rated M: be old enough to not put me in jail, pls.)
Pairing: Kurt/Blaine, Wes and David friendship, mentions of former Finn/Rachel
Word Count: 2400/100,000
Warnings: Kurt finally hangs out at the fire station. Guess what happens? (Be prepared, my firefighter daughters, for intense situations)
Summary: Fireman AU. A few months down the road.
A/N: This wouldn't exist (no, truly, I almost deleted it) without the most amazing editor a person could ask for, flaming_muse. Any remaining errors fall squarely on her my shoulders. I AM SO OVERWHELMED BY YOUR RESPONSE. Unbelievably gratifying, thank you so much, each and every one of you.


It wasn’t usually this cold in New York City by November, but the weather apparently didn’t care to stick with the program and was running on a mid-January schedule.Collapse )

This fic is going to be remembered as a Klaine classic! I've loved every moment of it. You're amazing!

Without a doubt, WITHOUT A DOUBT, the best Kurt and Blaine fanfiction there is. I wish you could win awards for this because I would certainly stand up and cheer you on if you did. Thank you for making my life a little better and happier; you've done something magical here and you should pat yourself on the back because of it. Have a good christmas :)

This story is perfect in every single way but one. It's over and that's not perfect. :P

This story was so wonderful. I really hope you plan to write more in the future. I'd definitely read!

hahaha, well, I do have to tackle other projects, so... ;)

Thank you very much (and I don't have any intentions of not writing, so rest assured. *g*) Happy holidays, sweetheart!

Wow. I honestly don't think I've ever been as engrossed in a story as I was with this one. I'm kind of lucky to have jumped in about half way, or the suspense of waiting those other six days may have killed me. I felt almost certain you were going to hurt Blaine after chapter 10, it kind of made my heart ache. But luckily, you didn't go that route -- I like our boys happy, and they certainly are! </p>

Kind of odd, but I would like to compliment you on the fact that you had this completed before you posted anything (or at least so it seemed), and you knew when to wind it down. Sure we all loved it, and probably would have read it for another 1000 chapters, but that would have just been ridiculous and I appreciate that you didn't keep it going just because you really liked us fawning over it/you. As cheesy as it is, to me it means you loved the story more than the praise. That isn't to say I wouldn't love some random one shots, let's be real, but you get my drift.

I adored your characterization, how the characters so sweetly melded to each other without changing who they were. The smudge of smut was tasteful and made me giddy, but wasn't the whole reason I tuned in, like with a lot of fanfiction.

I'm sure I could make a list of particular things I loved about this story, but I don't read you as that self-serving, so I'll spare you the book.

This story was a masterpiece of klaine fanfiction -- truly one of my favorites, and I can't wait to read whatever you come up with next. Thank you for this. :)

hahaha, the waiting isn't for everyone, I know. I'm glad you jumped in and more importantly: that you stuck with it! I have to laugh at all of you that didn't believe that I wouldn't lie to the whole fandom and kill/hurt Blaine! I AM HONEST, I PROMISE. :D

I did finish this before hand-I just have massive WiP fear, worried that something would happen and it wouldn't get finished or all posted, or who knows. I've had that happen to me as a reader and it's just rotten. So that's how I roll - it's done and it goes up, or I wait until it's done. :)

Awww, this is just a lovely comment, and I thank you so much. I definitely want the story to be complete, and not write for comments - that's not as important to me as just being proud of what I've done, so thank you, truly for mentioning that.

I know there are factions of fandom that are just there for the smut (I've been around the block a few times - old fandom dinosaur here) but ultimately I just want a good story - if I've been able to achieve that for y'all, then I am WELL SATISFIED. <3

I mean, hey, I love hearing what worked, lol, but really, this is an excellent thing for me to read, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. All the best to you! <3 <3

I don't always read fanfic, but when I do, I prefer "When There's Smoke"
I've been reading your blog for a while (probably since back when the Breaking Dawn book was coming out and I found your analysis of the series and loved it) but I've been away from LJ for like ever and only started catching up in the past couple of months. I'm not really a fanfic reader at all, but I decided when you linked to flaming_muses' recent Klaine fics I'd trust you that they were good. It turned out that you were right and they were amazing. So when you posted this I figured I'd trust you again and this was ALSO AMAZING. I love it so much and I'm so glad I read it. I wish you wrote for Glee because I'm not a huge fan of what they've done this season and I think you'd get it right! Thanks for this fic :)

PS I've been loving HDJM as well, keep that up!

Hey stranger! Long time no see! <3

Oh, I'm so glad you trusted me with flaming_muse, I think she is an absolutely astounding writer, and in my opinion, is the best writer in the fandom, hands down. And then to trust me and come over here? Why, that's just icing on the cake!!

I'm so happy you enjoyed this, THANK YOU FOR THAT! (And for the HDJM praise, it's my baby!!)

Happy holidays, and pop in every now and then! <3

Loved the ending of this fic and how "Kurt" rewrote the firefighters prayer. It never fit me either, as a female firefighter with a husband. Now it does!

Look forward to Kurt and Blaine's next adventure!

Merry Crissmas/Chris-mas and Happy New Year!

Ha, I knew Kurt wouldn't be the only one unhappy with that Old Boys Club version! :D (Also, Kurt is a staunch atheist, so he needed a little wiggle room there, too. Heh.)

Thank you so, so much for reading along and commenting as you went. Have a WONDERFUL holiday yourself!! <3

I can't believe this is over :( :'(
this whole story was beautiful. It is definitely one of the best, if not THE best, Klaine fics I have ever read, and believe me, I've read a lot of Klaine fics haha.
I loved how you were so truthful of the character's canon personalities. The way you wrote this, you could actually picture them doing everything in this story. The personalities were great, and I love how truthful you were with them, keeping the Kurt and Blaine we all know and love.
Thank you so much for writing this story, it was the highlight of my days for the past 13 days waking up and reading this. I am most definitely keeping the pdf version of this because I know I will be re-reading this many times.
Have a great holiday, keep writing! :)

Thank you so much, that's so sweet of you to say. I really appreciate knowing that they felt like THEM - that was so important to me, so thank you.

I'm happy the files will be helpful, too, I love reading fanfic on my Kindle!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU!

*wibble*

I know that it had to end eventually, but I really wish it didn't!!! I have not sighed contentedly and happily and mushilly in all of my life, as I have sighed while reading this fic.

Going now to download all the versions of the fic you have supplied. epub for my phone, pdf for my computer, and the mobi for when I get my replacement kindle next month.

:) I knew I was going to love this, which is why I stubbornly and with no small difficulty waited until the entire thing was posted, so I could read it all in one sitting (which I have just done!). This is absolutely, incredibly wonderful and I'm so glad you've written it and shared it with the world, thank you. Bluhhh my heart just melted all over the place you don't get articulateness any more just asdjhlkdfjghk. ♥♥♥♥♥

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.
