Twenty-Three Firsts, the continuation of the Near Misses verse is complete and posted! I know that Near Misses was a hugely popular fic over the summer, and so many of you begged her to write more, and LOOK AT THAT! You wish has been granted. That link is today's final installment, but it starts here, if you for some reason missed it.

PG-13 - NC-17 (part 4 in particular) for those that need to know such things. [I have a massive first time kink, and not just for the bonings. (lol) First time meeting parents, etc.] <3
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 [livejournal.com profile] 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. )
I sat on my front walk digging up crocosmia bulbs (write that down, it's important) while listening to The Roots station on Pandora. I started singing along with Mos Def's "U R The One" - which is a painful and plaintive break up song. And evidently was singing loudly, given the confused and bothered look from the old man walking his dog. WHATEVER, DUDE I HAVE FEELS ABOUT MOS DEF.

(I also dug up my tiger lilies and Asiatic lily bulbs as they're ready to be divided and I has a happy for new garden beds!) I AM A DORK, see: subject heading.

I have been making iron ons for the upcoming Pride Parade in Dallas, and those who know me know that I LOVE IRON ONS. They used to come in cereal boxes, anyone remember? I had a pretty sweet Star Wars one back in the day. Thanks, Cheerios!

I AM TRYING TO KEEP BUSY BECAUSE GLEE IS ON TONIGHT AND I AM SPOILER FREE. And excited! Don't forget that HDJM recaps are also spoiler free (for future eps) and POSITIVE. Take your hate to TWoP or wherever. I mean, I crack wise, but there's no "OMG LET'S WRITE HATE MAIL TO RYAN." (And man, I miss doing the drinking game. But it's so much work with no reward other than my own taste buds being satisfied. =/)

LA LA LA time to play the forty-million-jillionth game of Solitaire to keep occupied...
Because this isn't some slap-dash unf fest that drops off into WTF? land in the end, like almost everything I've tried reading lately has done. More times than not I've found myself going along with a fic, a fill on the kink meme and then drop my chin to my chest and say, "So close."

So that doesn't happen here. At all. Ever. This is so well thought out, so well executed, and - when it finally gets to this specific place in the story - so damn hot your retinas will burn. Singlehandedly the hottest, most intimate, most emotional and visceral love scene I've read in print or online. Period.

Okay, okay, enough of the slobbering, here's the first chapter to Near Misses, by [livejournal.com profile] flaming_muse. College AU where Kurt and Blaine didn't meet on a staircase. This is what happens instead. Also? This is 176,000 words, so you get loads to chew on with each chapter, and it's in both of their POVs, changing with each new scene. I have been reading along as she's written this, and it has been my utmost pleasure to be granted that.

Her posting schedule is every other day. She is a thoughtful, intelligent writer, and it's funny, it's painful, it's edge-of-your seat and it's always ALWAYS Kurt and Blaine. Even in this AU.

And for the love of all that's good, LEAVE FEEDBACK. That's how you encourage writers you like to write you more. :)
Title: ...And Hello To Station 114
Author: Stoney321/Heydontjudgme
Word Count: 5500ish
Rating: PG-13/R? IDK anymore.
Summary: While Blaine finishes closing down the old Brownstone with his crew, Kurt takes the opportunity to set up a special evening for the two of them in the new station. Oh, the fluff. Pages of pastel-colored cotton balls with sprinkles, guys.
A/N: IDK, I just needed something sweet and lovely? Maybe you did, too, we'll see. (And there is still more coming. IDK either. (a new ebook file is at the end of this one-shot.) As always, a massive, smooshy thank you to [livejournal.com profile] flaming_muse for tucking my commas in and just generally indulging me on these crazy things. (Without her, this entire story wouldn't exist.)

Continuation from here, and a part of the Where There's Smoke 'verse.

Kurt shoved Blaine's new desk three inches back to the left. He'd tried nine inches (precisely) forward, five (approximately) to the right, the length of his shoe shoved back towards the wall, and even tried canting it at an angle at one point before hysteria set in. )

And for those looking for new downloads, here is Where There's Smoke, reformatted with artwork mobi or pdf
Dear People Driving To Work/Jail/Satan/Your Mother's:

I hope that when you saw me catch my heel on a crack in the pavement on my jog today, and how I masterfully turned that into me doing the Roger Rabbit, laughing, and then dusted my shoulders off and kept going, that you laughed.

Because god knows I'm still laughing at myself.
Signed, the idiot on the main thoroughfare.

P.S. You're welcome for not shooting finger guns at everyone in my need to tamp down my humiliation.


ION, Ringer had its finale earlier, and our lovely recapper Janey Ford has her take on it up at HDJM.

Lastly, there is a story I really wish you all would read. It's Glee, but don't let that deter you, the vast majority of my flist. It's about race, perception-passing, being bi-racial and does that mean you're enough of an ethnicity or not at all... And it's just beautiful. There are no slurs used, because the writer is clever enough to make you think without blindsiding you by using the actual ugly words, which I wish more people would be sensitive enough to do, as well.

BENEATH THE SURFACE is one of those stories that's just important and beautiful and thoughtful. Let her know how special this is, would you?

I need mass quantities of food in my face right this minute. TO THE TACO TRUCK!
This is what happens when I can't be at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony with my husband (who went on stage thirty minutes ago! LOVE YOU, BABE! But waaah for me.)

Title We'll Call You
Author Some hack, rhymes with Phoney
Rating General
Word Count just under 1900
Summary "See, what you need to understand is that to be a GREAT actor you have to..." *POINTS* Cooper prepares for the MASTER CLASS lesson at McKinley High, reflecting on all of his AMAZING TALENT. *POINTS ELSEWHERE*
A/N Oh my god. This is everything wrong. ALL OF THE WRONG THINGS. Um...I may have experienced working with people like this on various commercial sets. *cough* This is unbeta'd, but I got a laugh out of [livejournal.com profile] flaming_muse so here we go.

Cooper had finally figured out that there was a ratio of depth of V-neck to the width of his flawless jawline, and he always made a point to buy shirts that had that magic triangle. )
So THIS FIC is naughty. In the best of ways. Future Klaine, NC-17. Leather pants. Eyeliner. Sex in a bar's bathroom. Do I need to say more?

And remember to leave comments - that's how you make writers want to write you more things! (And for pity's sake DON'T REPLY WITH HOW YOU WANT MORE. That's so freaking irritating. We all want more. It's called your Id. You can't live by your Id or you die of syphilis at 32 in a back alley with your face covered in sores and a false metal nose held onto your face by a rotten leather strap over your dirty, oily hair. Is this what you want for yourself?)

Fandom: Glee (no, really. Well...squint.)
Rating: R, for allusions to war crimes & violence (nothing overtly explicit)
Word Count: 6000
Summary: A side step from the “Where There’s Smoke” universe. This is the story of Sister, the homeless man on Kurt and Rachel’s train. Never forget that every person has a story. (Begins with the Nazi occupation of Serbia.)
Warnings: Bad things happen, and this story mentions many atrocities such as war crimes, ethnic cleansing, how tribal Eastern Europe still is and the hatred that comes from that, and hints at violence towards a particular woman (an o/c.)
A/N: MASSIVE thanks to [livejournal.com profile] no_detective for correcting my Serbian translations so they read properly. :) TRANSLATIONS ARE AT THE END OF THE STORY. Thanks always belong to [livejournal.com profile] flaming_muse for encouraging me to not delete things, for tucking my commas in where they belong, and talking to me for hours on end about made up characters.

Um, sorry that I didn’t write oodles of Blaine POV porn? (I’m not in the slightest, actually. Eh, no one is going to read this, I'm coming to terms with it, ha.) Not linking this in the K_B comm since there's no B and the K is with Rachel.

He had never been a political creature; to be political in Eastern Europe after the German-Russian war was almost an act of suicide. )

Title: And I Hear It's Good For Your Skin, Too [One-shot] [...probably]
Rating: R for lascivious thoughts, lol
Warnings: You're going to want a massage after this. You should get one, they're boss.
Word Count 5100+
Summary: Blaine Anderson wins an office pool and gets a massage. Hey, guess who his masseur is? Blaine kind of gets into it. A lot.
A/N: This is to put a smile on my lovely [livejournal.com profile] flaming_muse who had her first PROPER MASSAGE today. Um, I'm guessing she didn't have this experience. But if she did, I would like to book an appointment at her spa ASAP. Shameless massage shenanigans within, unbeta'd which - I know, I know, shame on me.

Blaine looked around the room, not really sure about any of this. The guys at the office had gone on and on about how great massage was, but Blaine had gotten the impression that Bill had some hot lady that was giving him a MASSAGE massage, and he just felt kind of weird about the whole thing. Getting naked and some stranger putting their hands all over him? And then the stranger turns out to not be some 6' 4” former shot putting Ukrainian woman with a huge wart on her lip, which was less daunting, but... Hmm. Having a really attractive man with a soft and soothing voice wasn't helping, either. )

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, [livejournal.com profile] 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.

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.

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. )

Blaine kept futzing with the collar of his shirt, trying to make it lay just right. Kurt playfully brushed his hands away so he could take over the task. 'Stop worrying, it's just my dad.' )

Kurt worked into the late hours of the night, making up for lost time. He hadn't stopped to give Rachel a full report when she came home, just held his cheek out for her kiss then promised her more tomorrow. He had even switched his phone to mute to keep from being distracted. As a result, when he woke up the next morning he saw several frantic texts from Peter )

Back when it was just him and his father, taking care of his dad – and to some extent, himself – had just come naturally. At first it was out of necessity, but it became who he now was, someone that stared down fear and kept going. It hadn't occurred to him that he could have left before Blaine had returned; he hadn't needed to make sure Blaine had been taken care of, he just...did it. He wanted to take care of Blaine, not because Blaine couldn't do for himself – he clearly could – but because Kurt could. And he really, really wanted to. )

Kurt knew this wasn’t some cute guy with a crooked smile at a coffee shop wanting to go to the movies. This wasn’t the interesting boy from his Stagecraft class who wanted to hold hands and talk about three-dimensional stage design. This was someone that would be significant. Someone that would either the one big regret of his life for not seeing where it could go, or the one big regret for not walking away before their hearts were shattered. )

'Kurt,’ Rachel said quietly, waiting for him to look at her. ‘When it's right, you know it. It doesn't matter when it happens. Just that it does.’ She gave his hands a squeeze and then wrapped hers around her coffee mug for a sip, returning one back for him to hold while he thought. ‘Besides, life-threatening situations count as like, three dates. You two are on your fifth date by now, emotionally speaking.' )

Kurt pinked and shoved at Finn's arm. ‘His name is Blaine, and he happens to be a fireman.’ ‘Wow, dude, that is so cool! He let you drive one of the fire trucks yet?’ ‘Don't be absurd,’ Kurt laughed. ‘This is our first official date. Besides, there probably are rules against that sort of thing' )
