Fic Post: Reality Works! Klaine, PG

So this happened. I'm as shocked as you. This is based on one of my kids having to do this same project. The dolls are uncanny (and a little creepy).

Author: me
Pairing: Klaine, mentions of Brittana
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Up through 3.18, but not really
Summary: Blaine is excited for his school project so he can see what it's like to be a parent. And he's about to find out. [Set in S3.]
Warnings: Reality! Panic! Marlon Brando! Cat hair! Angst! And a serious amount of fluff.
A/N: So flaming_muse and I had lunch at the Museum of Natural History in NYC last year and talked about writing stories with kids as they really are and not idealized. And then this happened from an email this morning about our kids. I regret nothing. :D Title is from the tagline for RealLife dolls, and FM is fabulous for tucking my commas in and making me WRITE ALL THE WORDS.

You are the proud temporary parent of a robot mandroid.Collapse )

Aw, this had me smiling over its cuteness (Blaine was just so adorably excited), while also laughing at the spot-on-ness of the panicked emotions. How quickly parenting a newborn can shift from eager elation to paralyzing inadequacy (actually, that can be said of parenting any age). I love babies, but my god, I do not miss those lonely and desperate days of trying to figure out what, what, what in the world is wrong now?!

Robot babies should be a required course for all high school students, and get 'em while they're sophomores, before they can even *think* that having a baby is anything close to cute. I mean, I was OLD and allegedly MATURE when I had my babies, and I still had plenty of moments of utter despair (while also sharing those joyful moments of parenting with someone I loved and the times when things were calm and wonderful, and the baby was cute--and sleeping). Gah, I can imagine this is tough on the real parents though--living with a shrieking baby again.

Thanks for writing this.

And the Daddies Hummel...I like. <3

I am so glad to hear from other parents that knowing chuckle of "Just you wait, kid. It isn't all sunshine and kittens." I was fairly young when I had my son (23), and with all of that youth and vigor I was still worn the hell out.

You nailed it, though: having an equal and loving partner makes those hard times bearable, for sure.

Thank YOU for reading this!! <3

Sheer brilliance.
Blaine should get a Lord Tubbington for when he and Kurt have kids (just hopefully one that won't smoke around a baby).

This was adorable (even though those dolls are anything but). :)

omg! This was just adorable. Okay, canon is making it a little angsty and sniffly, but that's not your fault! I love daddy!Blaine :D And I absolutely adore “And I wanted to tell you how grateful I am that we can never accidentally make one of those things.” actually laughed out loud.

I keep wanting to leave you a long and detailed comment about why I love this fic, but I just love this fic SO MUCH from start to finish, from Kurt knowing it will go off to Blaine thinking he has handled it to Lord Tubbington to the so so sweet ending.

And: "I wanted to tell you how grateful I am that we can never accidentally make one of those things.” It makes me laugh EVERY TIME.

LOVE. This. Them. YOU.

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.
