sotto_voce: A heart drawn in the sand, with a foot in the shot ([misc] hearts)
I was completely panicked for Yuletide this year, thanks to outside factors not at all related to fandom or my awesome recipient, but I wound up writing two fics and being really happy with both of them! Since quitting Glee (ugh), I've felt disengaged from fandom and I've really struggled to get words on the page, so I'm tremendously grateful for the annual kick in the butt that Yuletide provides. Without further ado: REVEALS. Which is probably not much of a reveal; I'm an obvious creature. BUT ANYWAY I WROTE:

إن سرقت، اسرق جمل، وإن عشقت اعشق قمر for [personal profile] ar (Evy O'Connell/Rick O'Connell + Alex O'Connell, The Mummy)
Odd Man Rush for [personal profile] ageorwizardry (Eric "Bitty" Bittle/Jack Zimmermann + team, Check, Please!)

Yelling all the stuff I wanted to yell while writing )

I still need to finish commenting on the stories that I loved, and I want to write thank-you replies to my commenters and also send another note to [archiveofourown.org profile] winterhill, the magician who wrote both of my giftfics -- but the archive seems to be down at the moment. I'll get there! In the meantime, happy 2015, everyone. May this year be better than last!

SURPRISING NO ONE, I am sure, I wrote several things for Yuletide this year! With more time, I would have written out my entire idea for a couple of the treats, instead of glossing over, but, well, it's Yuletide! "With more time" is my wistful guiding mantra.

Title: Thicker Than Water
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG
Characters: Kurt Hummel/Blaine Anderson; Hummel-Hudson and Anderson parents, Tina Cohen-Chang, Rachel Berry, Cooper Anderson
Count: 7688 words
Summary: The holidays can be easy or they can be fraught, Blaine finds, especially when you're intending to spend the rest of your life with your high school boyfriend and your family tilts toward the dysfunctional end of the scale.

Notes: This is for my lovely Box Scene project winner [tumblr.com profile] moongirl24! With a thousand apologies to both of my winners, for how slow their fics have been in coming, and with thanks to [tumblr.com profile] youmooveme for her Broadway expertise.

Title: May the Best Man Win
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Finn Hudson, Cooper Anderson, Kurt Hummel/Blaine Anderson; appearances by Burt & Carole, Rachel, Mercedes, and others
Count: 8945 words
Summary: Finn Hudson and Cooper Anderson are possibly not the most unselfish best men in the world.
Notes: I took flashfic prompts and [tumblr.com profile] wehavethemjustwheretheywantus asked for Finn and Cooper trying to out-best-man each other, and this sort of ... exploded. It contains douchebaggery and absolutely absurd amounts of sappy shit, even by my standards; you have been warned.

Don't think I didn't notice you and Cooper using Blaine and me as pawns in a deeply uncomfortable 20-minute game of dueling lap dances last night. )

Count: 3553 words
Summary: Blaine and Kurt finish a conversation in the guidance office and go forward from there. Also, there are pamphlets.
Notes: I just really needed cuddles after that episode, man.

Blaine isn’t sure he has any more feelings left to express. )

Count: 9570 words, this part; 24,100 total
Summary: Kurt is an up-and-coming New York City wedding planner working on the biggest wedding of his career, and Blaine is the frontman of an unfortunately-named band from New Jersey. Booking an untested band with a distracting lead singer is either going to be the best or the worst decision that Kurt has ever made. He's not sure which, just yet.
Notes: For [personal profile] unicorndust. To the real people who are mentioned here: god I hope you never come across this, and I'm sorry for what I have wrought.

Kurt hasn't cried since the very first wedding that he planned, when he was 16 and thought it would be the epitome of romance and class to have a cage full of glitter-pooping doves. )

Booking an untested band with a distracting lead singer is either going to be the best or the worst decision that Kurt has ever made. He's not sure which, just yet.
Notes: For [personal profile] unicorndust, because I was too slow to finish the entire thing on her actual birthday. I initially misjudged how long this thing was going to be and changed the number of parts accordingly; I think it will be three, but maybe four? Part 1 on Dreamwidth or on LiveJournal.

The first of a few dirty snowflakes begin to drift down between them, because Kurt's entire life has decided to become a gay romantic comedy at some point in the last week. )

Notes: For [personal profile] unicorndust, who lights up my fucking life on an hourly basis and who probably won't even remember that she mentioned wanting this AU while in casual conversation this summer. But I remembered! Happy birthday, Leslie-to-my-Ann. ♥

Kurt wonders if ravishing the lead singer of the band that he hired still counts as a professional conflict of interest if he technically isn't the one paying his salary. )

Summary: The aftermath of multiple elections isn't easy to handle, especially when one family member won and the other one didn't.
Count: 4656 words

Notes: Spoilers for 3x07 "I Kissed a Girl"; title from "Constant Craving" lyrics. (Because I couldn't deal with just about any other plotline in this episode.)

Blaine's always here. Between him and Rachel, we might as well open up a hotel for teenagers who never quit making funny faces when they sing. )

Title: Spoken Like a Melody
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG-13

Notes: This is my fluffy-ass take on the 3x05 spoilers; any summary beyond that would be spoilery. Title from "Those Sweet Words" by Norah Jones.

Title: Finders, Keepers
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Kurt Hummel/Blaine Anderson; mentions of Santana Lopez and Rachel Berry
Summary: Kurt and Blaine technically tagged along on Blaine's dad's New York business trip so that they could tour college campuses, but the trip also has its fringe benefits. Like: an entire day spent roaming the city with Blaine. Even if Blaine isn't responding very gracefully to the unexpected attention that Kurt finds himself receiving.
Count: 4778 words

Notes: For the anon on Tumblr who requested fic where Kurt is flirted with and Blaine gets jealous. Also on Tumblr, someone mentioned the horrific idea of an "Auntie Tana" "anonymous" advice column and I ran with it; I can't remember who it was, but they deserve the credit for that one! This follows Possession Is Nine-Tenths of the Law, though it's designed to function as a stand-alone.

If we move here and you become the king of the hipsters, I’m breaking up with you. )

Title: Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG
Characters: Kurt Hummel/Blaine Anderson
Summary: It’s not like Kurt can blame the girls who try to flirt with Blaine. He's dreamy, he’s charming, he doesn’t always immediately come across as gayer than a Christmas tree, and if you spot him out of his uniform, he looks like he walked right off the set of a Cary Grant movie.

Notes: For the anon on Tumblr who requested fic where Blaine is flirted with and Kurt gets jealous.

Kurt has almost gotten used to Blaine being hit on by girls. )

Title: Born in a Small Town
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG
Characters: Burt Hummel/Carole Hudson, Kurt Hummel/Blaine Anderson, Mercedes Jones, Rachel Berry, Tina Cohen-Chang, Finn Hudson
Summary: Kurt looks way more disbelieving and cautious than Burt is comfortable with. Haven't they been through enough by now, hasn't he proved enough that he's gonna love Kurt and stand by him no matter what, that Kurt doesn't need to be scared to tell him that he's got a boyfriend?
Count: 4055 words

Notes: Title from "Small Town" by John Mellencamp. Most of this was written the night that "Original Song" aired. Please keep that in mind as you steadily realize just how goddamn fluffy this thing is going to be.

Burt knows something's up the second he sees Kurt waltz through the front door. )

Title: thank you for being a friend
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Santana Lopez/original female character, Blaine Anderson/Kurt Hummel, Rachel Berry/Finn Hudson
Summary: Over the course of the summer, Santana steadily becomes less of an enigma to Blaine. Mostly because she keeps walking into the employee-only area at Six Flags and also crashing his dates.
Count: ~10,000 words

Notes: Title from the Golden Girls theme song; the two episodes referenced are "Henny Penny - Straight No Chaser" and "Scared Straight."

Summary: Kurt just can't sit idly by and watch his friends be wildly obvious while thinking they're secretive.
Count: ~1800 words

Notes: I asked for fic prompts on my Tumblr and within five minutes, three people had independently asked for Kurt/Blaine Sam/Mercedes double dates, so HERE YOU GO. Title from "The Trolley Song" from Meet Me in St. Louis.

This is an intervention. )

Title: shorty know what she want
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Santana Lopez/Brittany Pierce (one sided), Kurt Hummel, Rachel Berry, Blaine Anderson, Tina Cohen-Chang, Mike Chang, Mercedes Jones, everyone in Glee Club
Summary: Her new boyfriend isn't a juvenile offender, but he is mighty dumb. Santana likes that in a man.
Count: ~1500 words

Notes: [livejournal.com profile] areyoumymemmy successfully guessed which fic in the [livejournal.com profile] kurt_blaine fic exchange was mine before anonymity was lifted, and this is her dubious, dubious prize. (SORRY EMMY.) Prompt: AU version of drunken hijinks from "Blame It on the Alcohol" where Blaine doesn't suddenly date Rachel, starring Brittany and Santana, and guest-starring Tina and Mike. Title from the lyrics of "Blame It on the Alcohol."

Never let it be said that Santana doesn't do anything for anybody. She's a damn humanitarian. A gayitarian. )

Count: ~12,260 words total; 6500 in this part

Notes: [livejournal.com profile] preromantics put out the call on Tumblr for Blaine in a cadet uniform. I started writing a drabble and this ... happened! A magical human being whose LJ name I am unaware of [livejournal.com profile] miryak drew fanart that I love! And then [livejournal.com profile] yo_mawari did too! They're both a little spoilery for this part, and are thoroughly delightful!

Kurt clicks his tongue, winks, and points finger-phasers at Blaine, in a clear sign that he’s uncomfortable and trying to make a joke so that they can stop talking about this. )

It’s all freely available scientific information, and it’s not particularly helpful. )

I still haven't posted my feelings on "Original Song." It's coming! I just have so many feelings that it's overwhelming! It has also not been my week, dudes; overwhelming in a vastly less entertaining way. But ENOUGH OF THAT. I've been utterly addicted to Tumblr lately, which contributes to my LJ radio silence. But it led to fic! So here are a couple of quick things that I wrote based on tumblprompts. Which is a word. I am making it one.

Title: coffee break
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG
Characters: Blaine Anderson, Brittany Pierce, Kurt Hummel
Summary: Brittany wanders into the Lima Bean.
Count: 1283 words
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] msmoocow, who requested Blaine-Brittany interactions. This is set just before "Original Songs."

Blaine is fairly certain Brittany could bench press him if she felt in any way threatened by him. )




Title: basic pinning
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG-13/borderline R
Characters: Lauren Zizes/Noah Puckerman
Summary: Puck issues a really stupid challenge.
Count: 796 words
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] weyrdchic, who requested Lauren/Puck with the prompt of "physical." (You don't even know how close I came to writing them just mocking Sue and Olivia Newton John's video.) This is what a half-nelson looks like!

That’s the grossly charming thing about Puckerman. He doesn’t know when to quit. )




Title: no one's got what we've got going
Fandom: Glee
Rating: PG?
Characters: Mike Chang/Tina Cohen-Chang, Rachel Berry, Mercedes Jones, Quinn Fabray
Summary: Mike and Tina make excuses for their disinterest in joining the venn diagram of Glee Club/Celibacy Club relations.
Count: 1032 words
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] svz_insanity's request! Title from "Dress and Tie" by Charlene Kaye.

Mike has killer abs and he’s the sweetest boy Tina knows, but he’s the worst liar in the history of the world. )
