Author’s Note: This was a labor of blood and sweat and a lot of late-night pizza and tears, and I’m so thrilled to share it with all of you. Many, many thanks to adam__apple for the gorgeous artwork that I want to print out and hang on my wall. Thanks to my Tumblr followers for dealing with my surly attitude these past few weeks months years. But most importantly, thank you to partfalseparttrue, because I never imagined that a stupid show about hormonal, singing teens could bring such a ray of sunshine and joy into my life. <3

Unknown Number: Does this count as our first date?

Blaine: We scandalized an entire coffee shop, you just asked for my phone number, and I’m sitting right next to you. So, yes?

Kurt: Hmm, I don’t know, neither of us asked the other here.
I don’t think that counts.

Blaine: Are you asking me to ask you out?

Kurt: Maybe I want to ask you out.
For coffee?

Blaine: For coffee.
I buy the next round of drinks, you buy the biscotti?

Kurt: It’s a date. :)

Kurt: What.

Blaine: What.

Kurt: Did they really end it there???
Every time I think I’ve hit my new Sing low with a season finale, another one comes along to take the cake.
I’m through.

Blaine: ...You’re already composing a bitchy text post in your head, aren’t you?

Kurt: ...No?

Blaine: How about I come over and distract you until all of the “dumb sheeple” on the internet go to sleep?
I got a cheese board in the mail from Amazon today. We can go to Kroger and buy a bunch of expensive cheeses and drink some sparkling apple cider I have in my fridge from New Year’s.

Kurt: Will there be making out? Will you comfort me in my time of need?

Blaine: You know how I feel about expensive cheeses.

Fic Rec!

sparklingtheaterofexcess and I have been having a week of period dramas this summer. We started with Downton Abbey and moved swiftly backwards in time through Desperate Romantics, The Borgias, and The Tudors. I’m trying to convince him to watch Game of Thrones with me, but so far he won’t budge.

But! I have been thinking a lot about period fanfictions (and yes, I still want to write that one with Chase as a prince in an arranged, political marriage, and Devon as the traveling bard who whisks him away), and time and time again the one I come back to reread is Every Rose Has Its Thorn. I learned more about the Wars of the Roses from this fic than I did during my freshman history class, which...probably says a lot about the public schools in my town. Nevertheless, it’s a fabulous tale full of action, adventure, intrigue, and interesting lube substitutes. There’s murder, and breeches, and dashing young men riding off to battle--not to mention the beautiful prose and plot twists and turns that still leave me on the edge of my computer chair even after the fourth or fifth read.

It’s long and immersive, and the perfect thing to lose yourself in on a Saturday afternoon--if your boyfriend isn’t interested suddenly interested in watching Game of Thrones after seeing a picture of Kit Harington’s body, that is. I highly recommend this fic, and any of the author’s other period pieces, because history is a thousand times more interesting when it stars our favorite boys.

Kurt: The Chevon Reversebang signups just opened. Are you going to do it?

Blaine: I don’t know. I mean, writing based on fanart and pictures is what I’m good at, but ten-thousand words is a *lot* of words.

Kurt: I’ll be there to cheerlead you every step of the way.
I even think I can fit into my old cheerleading uniform.

Blaine: Okay. :)
Wait.
Whoa whoa whoa.
Hold on.
Cheerleader? Uniform?!?!

Kurt: ;)

Blaine: !!!!!!!!!!!

Kurt: What?

Blaine: Ah, Kurt, get online! New spoiler pictures leaked today!

Kurt: Let me boot up my computer, hold on.

Ah!!

Blaine: I KNOW!

Kurt: Goddammit, Sing!

Fic Rec

Partfalseparttrue recommended this fic series to me a couple months ago because of something I had gone through in my personal life, but up until now (with him politely pestering me just to check it out, I promise you’ll like it, babe!) I’d neglected to pick it up. Well today I was stuck in the airport with a three-hour flight delay and a couple of fics loaded on my Kindle, so I decided to give it a shot.

I’m really glad I did. The ‘verse follows Chase’s quest to come to terms with his attacker through a series of PFLAG meetings held at the local university. At first it seems like a lost cause, and a reluctant Devon thinks it’s not going to work the way Chase wants, but by the end a strong friendship forms between the three as well as the others who eventually make their way to the PFLAG meetings. A friendship that spans the test of time, and evolves into something greater than a group of queer kids banding together because they’re the only ones who understand each other. It’s a story about birds of a feather flocking together, yes, but it’s mainly about love, about acceptance, and about forgiveness.

Even if it’s not quite your cup of tea, I recommend at least giving the first fic a chance. I’m sure you’ll be hooked, just as I was.

Title: Got To Get You Into My Life
Author: ourwallscomedown (sparklingtheaterofexcess and partfalseparttrue)
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Bareback, comeplay, rimming, orgasm denial
Word Count: ~6400
Summary: The “Welcome Devon and Chase to Your New Apartment” party is nice, in theory, but after about five minutes Devon is ready to rip Chase’s jeans off and kick out all their guests. Fortunately, they seem to get the hint.

“Do you think they’ll be mad at us?” Chase asks, head turned to the side, cheek and chest and stomach pressed against the front door that had just closed behind the last of their party guests. “We are being pretty bad hosts.”
“Don’t care,” Devon mumbles into the soft hairs at the base of Chase’s neck. He slides to the floor, running his hands to the front of Chase’s body and pulling Chase’s shirt from his slacks. “Need you naked.”
“Bossy tonight,” Chase says, working his belt through the loops with trembling fingertips. “Are you going to move us to the bedroom, or...?”
“Nuh-uh,” Devon says, pushing Chase’s pants down, taking his briefs with them. He leans in, laps at the sweaty dip right above Chase’s ass. “Want you right here.”

Anonymous asked: Are the fics you write with sparklingtheaterofexcess autobiographical? ;D




You must think we go at it like bunnies with how many fics we’ve now written together. A gentleman never kisses and tells, Anon! :o

52 Notes Reblog [Heart]

“I’m going to get a bunch of weird anonymous messages now,” Kurt says, nudging Blaine with his shoulder. They’re pressed together in their favorite position: side by side on Blaine’s bed, legs tangled under the covers, propped up on pillows against the headboard, blogging simultaneously from two separate laptops. Blaine has never been happier.

Blaine scoffs. “Like that’s any different than usual.” He rubs one of his socked feet against Kurt’s calf. “Besides, people are interested in our relationship because we mean something to them. We’re like, gay icons.”

“Someone the other day told me we’re their OTP,” Kurt says, hitching one knee higher, which tilts his laptop slightly to the side but gives Blaine more access to his leg.

“We’re a power couple,” Blaine says, reblogging a photoset of nine alpacas that vaguely resemble Chase on a bad hair day. “We’re Jay-Z and Beyonce.”

Kurt hums, exiting out of his rapidly-filling inbox and closing his laptop. “As long as I get to be Beyonce.”

Blaine grins, closes his own laptop and carefully moves it to the floor next to the bed. They’ve had one too many close calls leaving the technology within reach of a kicking foot or outstretched arm. “I’m not giving that up without a fight,” Blaine says, rolling over until he’s on top of Kurt, pressing his weight down into the mattress. He casts a cursory glance to his door, making sure his father’s not hovering outside the room, but both of his parents have been far better about Kurt than Blaine had expected. At least, not openly hostile, or even passive aggressive.There’s only been once tense moment so far, the first time Kurt had come over for dinner, when everything had only been mildly awkward and stilted until Blaine’s mother caught them soapy and kissing while pretending to dry the dishes. Since then they’d done their best to avoid a repeat situation, which works fine for Blaine because it means uninterrupted makeouts with his boyfriend while his parents suddenly remember important meetings and errands they have to run.

Kurt laughs, eyes bright, challenging. “You’re on, mister,” he says, rucking up Blaine’s shirt with exploring fingers. “But I know how you get when I win. And I’d better not read about this event in one of your fics a week from now.”

“Don’t be ridiculous, Kurt,” Blaine says, sitting back on Kurt’s thighs so he can start undoing the buttons on Kurt’s shirt. Kurt leans up for a kiss that Blaine happily gives, a quick peck with the intent of more to come, before he pushes Kurt gently by the shoulders back to the bed. Kurt huffs, but Blaine just boops him on the nose, continues working off his shirt. “Not everything needs to be a fanfiction.”

The End!

Additional Notes:

All fic recommendations and mentions in this work are actual Klaine fics that happen to be among some of my favorites, most of which are a little older because what can I say, writing in and around season two made me a little nostalgic. Blaine’s Tumblr post was rather autobiographical when he said he had a list a mile long, because there are about ten or a hundred other pieces I wanted to put on here. In order, the fics described or mentioned are:

On the Line by icedwhitemocha
The Luckiest by wordplay
For Better or for Worse by sotto-voice
Fleet Street Follies by regala-electra
Shatter the Walls for a New Sun by whenidance
Singing the Journey by wintercreek
Like I’ve Never Seen the Sky Before by missbeizy
Separate Parts by threepwillow
The Fiddler and the Maestro by colfer
Velvet Petals, Piercing Thorns by a-glass-parade
Breakeven ‘verse by idoltina

Once again, a big, warm thank you to everyone whose inboxes I panicked in over the course of writing this fic. Not counting the gone-forever NaNoWriMo novel I wrote in 2006, this is the by far longest thing I have ever written, fanfiction or otherwise. I'm excited to share it with all of you, and I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧

I love this so much. I really can't express how awesome it is. Funny, self-referential fic is so hard to write well and so very good when it is good, and this one is very, very good.

This just had me squirming with delight! One of my favorite tropes in fandom is the meta fandom within a fandom approach, and I LOVE what you've done for Glee (or should I say Sing? ;) )
I also had to admit I was having fun trying to guess if I could tell which fanfic you were referencing!

But mostly I just love the idea of the boys finding happy ever after via the same medium that brought them to me :)

This is hilarious and sweet and so, so charming! I absolutely adore this kind of self-referential meta-within-a-story, and that this is done so well? I'm melting! I'd been lurking in this fandom since those early days, so I made embarrassing, delighted noises each time references to an old favorite showed up in disguise.

*_______* I know firsthand how friendships and relationships start in fandom, and it's completely believable that Kurt and Blaine could have met that way. (Kurt in particular seems like he'd be really into fanfic, and it's canon that Blaine is a fanboy.)

Anyway, I enjoyed all the little shout-outs. I recognized all of those Glee fics right off. To sum up, I have a big smile on my face from reading this.

P.S. I'm tempted to see if partfalseparttrue and sparklingtheaterofexcess are real tumblrs...
devonwood
Sep. 17th, 2013 01:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I love writing and reading about fandom/fanfiction meta, so this was a treat. It's interesting to think about how one different path could lead the characters to an online fandom. I think if a show like Sing really existed in the Glee universe, Kurt and Blaine would be all over it.

PS: They're real tumblrs, in the sense that I've saved the URLs, but they're not "actual" tumblrs....yet. ;)

Awww what a great fic! Of course they were blogging from the same coffee shop...perfect :)

Loved that Trent & Blaine revealed their online lives to each other. Really that took a lot of courage.

Blaine's little off the cuff gdocs porn was hot.

Super realistic portrayal of a blogger trying to get on the real world. Imo.
devonwood
Sep. 17th, 2013 01:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was interesting to take an experience I'm so familiar with and figure out how the canon characters would work in that type of situation. Which is where Blaine's little gdocs porn comes in, haha. And I adore Trent so much! The few lines he's given on the show have been perfect.

The romantic irony in that last sentence made me kicky feet. Love love love this story. Your voice for Kurt's writing is spot on. Definitely one of my new faves. And now I have some new fic recs from you to pursue!
devonwood
Sep. 17th, 2013 01:13 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm way more comfortable with Kurt's voice than I am with Blaine's, so writing an entire piece from Blaine's POV was challenging--especially because there are so many things I would love to write and see from Kurt's POV! But he got his chance in season two, so now it's Blaine's turn. :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it! And all of those recs are some of my favorites, though the list of ones I wanted to include but couldn't is about a mile long.

So the fandom history lesson that is this fic was just amazingly enjoyable, from beginning to end (not to mention all the meta), but I lost it at "Blaine’s life isn’t an AU fanfiction, after all." Like, I was pretty much out of commission for a minute silently shaking with laughter.

Loved it. Thank you so much for writing this. :)
devonwood
Sep. 17th, 2013 01:14 pm (UTC)
Haha, thank you. I like how you described it as a "fandom history lesson". It's interesting to think how there are people now in fandom who weren't around for everything that happened a couple years ago that some of the "old hats" take for granted as common knowledge. Especially since history tends to repeat itself. ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Oh man. OH MAN. As someone who came to Glee at the end of Season Two, and before Season Three aired, all of the references in this story made me so emotional. SO many of my favourite fics were referenced here.

Your writing is amazing, and I really loved how you managed to hark back to season two!Kurt. I think we've all sort of forgotten how innocent he used to be, even though he was still fierce as fuck. And Blaaaiiine, my baby. You managed to get his story to translate well to this universe you set up. Also amazingly, I really loved how you got the whole Jeremiah/When I Get You Alone thing to translate to Blaine writing a fic for his 1500th follower.

God, I love this! Definitely one of my faves in fandom now

Sep. 17th, 2013 01:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! It was so interesting trying to write season two!Klaine while simultaneously writing about them watching season four of "Glee". I'd forgotten how much the characters have changed since then, so it was difficult striking a balance between writing them the way I would have two years ago, and writing the characters two years ago knowing what I now know about their motivations/goals/families/etc. And the Jeremiah scene was the hardest one to translate to online fandom, I think. The "Sexy" part was one of the first things to pop into my mind when I started planning this fic, just because Blaine would.

I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

I definitely recommend checking out the others when you get a chance! They're some of my favorites, though I have a list about a mile long of other fics I wanted to squeeze into this fic as well. I just love too many things!
