Blaine Big Bang storytime!

Artwork made for Rachel's absolutely amazing fanfic As Long As It Takes. Read it on LJ or AO3. I loved every second of working on this! :)

Machines of Loving Grace (Author: Airy_nothing / Artist: Magicalplaylist​)

Summary: Sci-fi AU in which Blaine Anderson wanders the halls of Dalton Academy, a safe haven created by his father after the events surrounding the Sadie Hawkins dance. Populated by student-machines, Dalton is an orderly place where everyone does exactly what Blaine wants … until Kurt Hummel (an actual real boy!) sneaks in to spy on the Warblers—which changes everything. Part gothic fairy tale and part sci-fi adventure, this is a story about adapting and surviving—and breaking free of the cage.

Drawn for the Blaine Big Bang! (Needless to say it’s a delightful work with multiple levels of thinky-thoughts in regards to both Kurt and Blaine and Dalton itself. And robots. The whole piece deftly weaves canon meta with science fiction and fantasy, combined with my favorite literary move of personal/quiet moments contrasted with the absurd. It was a privilege to work with sothinky on this project and I hope you all go read and review and enjoy!)

Word Count: 35,100
Rating: R
Warnings: Sex. Mentions of homophobia, off-screen violence, and sexual assault relating to canon events that happened to Kurt in NBK, as well as Blaine at Sadie Hawkins.
Genre: Romance, AU, Comedy

Summary: The Chase/Devon cheating plotline that dominates the season four winter finale of Sing rocks the fandom to its core. Fortunately, the Chevon Big Bang sign-up date coincides with the dark, wank-filled times, and thanks to an old beta services post in the now-defunct Chase-Devon Livejournal community, Blaine finds himself with a full plate during the hiatus. He has practice for show choir sectionals, drabbles to write under AU photosets that crop up on his dash, and now a twenty-five-thousand word Chase/Devon fix-it fic to beta for Kurt, moderator of the Fashion of Sing! blog and fandom personality known for his often passive-aggressive episode commentary. Fortunately, the last one takes Blaine in directions he hadn’t expected when he signed up for Tumblr and followed his first Sing blog.

So I did some art! Specifically, I did art for the lovely idoltina for the Beyond Dapper 2013 Blaine Big Bang. Her fic is called Rewrite This Story and well… that’s all I’m going to divulge about it. ;) The first image is the full original digital painting that I did (high res should be available by clicking on it). I also created an ePub (sldo .mobi) using a cropped version of the art for the cover as well as a cover for the fanmix that idoltina put together to go with the fic, both of which can be downloaded/accessed from the link above.

ETA: Apparently links don’t work in captions so this links to a high-res version of the main image.

AN:For the Blaine Big Bang challenge. Huge, huge, huge thanks to my beta shandyall. I literally could not have done this without her. She was the best cheerleader and kept me going when I wanted to give up. She’s entirely the reason I’m posting this right now. Also a huge thanks to my artist for her amazing work and for everyone on tumblr who cheered for me and kept me going. You guys rock.

Fic: Jitters

Title: Jitters
Author: whatiknew
Artist: pencilpushingenthusiast
Betas: the-cimmerians, aspiringtoeloquence
Word Count: 29,600
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Blaine/Kurt. Blink and you’ll miss it references to past Blaine/Jeremiah, past Blaine/Sebastian, past Blaine/OMC. Santana, Tina, Rachel, Mike.
Warnings: None
Summary: Blaine Anderson gets up at 5am every day to serve coffee with Santana Lopez. And that is the easiest part of his day. As he starts his sophomore year at NYU, Blaine tries to navigate his inevitable conquering of Tisch while figuring out how to talk to the beautiful boy who’s started frequenting the coffee shop. There might be dragons involved.
Disclaimer: All errors in the college theater casting process, the name “Jitters” and the color name “Electric Carrot” are my inventions. Everything you recognize belongs to someone else. I make no money from this and in fact spent quite a bit holing up in the coffee shop near my apartment when I was having issues writing.


A/N: Countless thanks to my betas, both those who agreed to it from the start (Cimm) and everyone I wrangled into it later (Jenny and Aud), as well as everyone who just dealt with my yelling at them during the writing process (Lauren and Murphy). This almost didn’t happen four different times and it’s completely different than the prompt I signed up with. Special thanks to Lucie for her accommodation and sadistic liking of my posts and Cimm, who talked me through the terror of writing the next thing after you’ve written The Thing and the anxiety that entails. CB, thank you for drawing something that made me excited to keep writing and going above and beyond with your interludes. And for not drawing Blaine’s ass smaller like you wanted to.

Fic: As Long As It Takes

Author: Rachel
Title: As Long As It Takes
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 27,880~
Summary: There was a common thread that held the entire world together, a singular thought that infiltrated most minds more often than not until it reached fruition. Everyone had someone that was out there in the world waiting for them, someone they were destined to spend the rest of their lives with, and Blaine Anderson was no exception. Meeting his soul mate was a moment he’d been dreaming of and imagining ever since he was old enough to know he had one. It was a moment that he anticipated replaying over and over again in his mind — that first moment when he’d known. No matter how much he’d thought about it, read about it, dreamed about it, nothing could have prepared him for the actual moment itself.
Author’s Note: Thanks to slayerkitty for throwing this idea my way, whenidance for being my amazing beta, and animateglee for making such incredible art for it, which can be found throughout the story. Written for the Blaine Big Bang.

Title: The More You Give 
Word Count: ~54k
Rating: NC-17
Characters/Pairings: Kurt/Blaine, Sugar, Rachel, minor St. Berry, other minor appearances from canon characters
Warnings Sexual content – check individual warnings on each part. Age!kink, but both parties are over the age of 18.
Summary: When Blaine Anderson gets a fresh start at McKinley High in 1997 thanks to his best friend Rachel Berry, her parents, Emma Pillsbury, and the group of misfits that would become the New Directions, the last thing he expects to gain from playing it straight and dating Quinn Fabray is a daughter at the age of sixteen. Fast forward to present day, where Blaine is raising Sugar as a single dad in the same sleepy town of Lima he grew up in. When Sugar is recruited at the beginning of her sophomore year by Will Schuester to join New Directions and falls deeply in love at first sight with one of the co-captains, Blaine isn’t sure what to think, especially since Kurt Hummel is quite out of her league, being three and a half years older and, well, gay.

Little did he realize how much Kurt would end up turning Blaine’s own life upside down in the year ahead – a story of Blaine’s struggles to find his true self as his daughter grows up herself and his personal journey to realize age is just a number.

Fic: Hail To Whatever You Found in the Sunlight That Surrounds You (NC-17)

Word Count: 30 400

Characters/Pairings: Blaine/Kurt, Cooper, Mr. & Mrs. Anderson, Burt/Carole, minor OCs

Warnings: homophobia, mention of gaybashing and bullying, underage drinking

Summary: On the third of August in Blaine Anderson’s ninth year, something momentous happens: he sees a boy crying on the beach and decides to do something about it. What he gets in return is a best friend, a confidant, an ally to help him through the ups and downs. They spend one month together every summer. One perfect month until they are old enough to escape together. Eleven Augusts and the letters in between.

So, here it is, my oft whined about Blaine Big Bang fic.

Wonderful fanmix by tortugax/snapely can be found here, and she also made this gorgeous banner.

Fic: Pawns, Bishops, and Castles

Title: Pawns, Bishops, and Castles
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 72,900~
Warning: very brief homophobic slurs
Summary: Words were such a simple thing to Blaine Anderson. Of course, that was before he realized that just a few simple sentences could change everything. “Do you mind if I sit here? Everywhere else is full.” Eleven words changed the course of his life, eleven words etched on his heart. Change will come as surely as the seasons and twice as fast.
Author’s Note: Title taken from the song “Control” by Poe. Many thanks to dahlstrom for being such an amazing beta and helping me whip this into shape, pureklaination for the inspiration and constant cheerleading, and aelora for her support. Artwork by LJ user ~chamilet. I’ll be putting this on AO3 and S&C when I have the chance, but sadly today is not that day.

Fic: Midnight Confessions

Author: Chazzam (aka Chazzamba)
Artist: Volsura
Beta: Stut—ter
Word Count: 57,600
Rating: NC-17

Summary: A Thelma and Louise Klaine AU with some serious liberties taken.  Kurt convinces Blaine, his best friend, to take a break from his emotionally abusive husband and spend a weekend with him in the mountains of West Virginia.  But when they stop for some drinks along the way, things take a horrific turn.  

And then things start to get interesting.

Note: It is NOT necessary to watch Thelma and Louise in order to understand and (hopefully) enjoy this fic.

Warnings:

~EXPLICIT NON-CON in one scene (though there is now a non-explicit summary posted, should you wish to avoid this, with a link at the beginning of the chapter in question).

~Character death (non-Klaine)                                                                      

~Emotional/mental abuse within a relationship (again, not Klaine)                    

~Violence, murder, use of firearms, armed robbery…let’s just say crime and violence in general

~Substance abuse (only cigarettes and alcohol, if that matters to you)  

~Infidelity (but Kurt and Blaine do not cheat on each other. I want to make that very clear)

~Homophobic/sissyphobic language and behavior                    

~Reference to/discussion of suicide                                          

~Klaine sexytimes (although that may be more of an enticement than a warning…)

I would like to extend all the love and thanks to my beta, Stut—ter, for being generally amazing, extremely flexible with her time and possessing an eagle’s eye for grammatical errors. Not to mention talking me off a ledge when I needed it.  Without her this story wouldn’t be nearly as tight or as nuanced (plus she encouraged me to expand the smut, so feel free to thank her for that).  

And the artwork - can we just talk about the artwork, please?  The very talented Volsura has created the most gorgeous and flawless artwork for this fic (as you can see above), and I am speechless in the face of its excellence.  I strongly encourage you to send her lots of love and praise!

Fic: Every Time You Move (I Let a Little More Show)

Title:Every Time You Move (I Let a Little More Show)

Authors: penguinutopia and hedgerose

Artist: Subaru444

Link to Art Post: here!

Rating:NC-17

Summary: He’s sexy! He’s cute! He’s popular to boot! It’s Blaine Anderson’s first and only year as Head Cheerleader of the McKinley High School Cheerios, and he is going to make sure that it’s an excellent one. (A Bring It OnAU. We’re sorry.)

Word Count:30,232

Pairings:Blaine/Sebastian, Blaine/Kurt, Brittany/Santana, Hunter/His Ego, Sebastian/Adam

Contains:References to homophobia and gay-bashing, consensual sex under the influence of alcohol (both parties). Finn is present, but is not a major part of the fic.

Betas: As always, we have huge amounts of love for Tina, who whips us into shape every time. Thanks also go to Lissa, especially for the cheerleading help.

Author’s Notes: The ages of several characters have been changed to fit the story, because what is canon even. Thanks to oneflamingofor the cheerleading help. Also, we swear that this isn’t a 90’s AU, much as Blaine might wish it were.

This was inspired by a conversation between the two of us that essentially went like this:

“Blaine’s sexy.”

“He’s cute!”

*dawning looks of horror/glee* “HE’S POPULAR, TO BOOT.”

And, well. FANFICTION.

Fic: Stolen Bases, Stolen Hearts (Masterpost)

Title: Stolen Bases, Stolen Hearts
Author: unsung_song / jukeboxanderson
Artist: batkonehat
Word Count: 25,762
Rating: NC-17
Characters/Pairings: Kurt/Blaine, Mike/Tina, Sam/Mercedes, Wes/OFC, mentions of Santana/Brittany, Puck/Quinn, as well as past Blaine/Sebastian and Blaine/Eli; also includes Rachel, Will, Ryder, Jesse, and other canon and original characters
Warnings: homophobia, including in the media; brief mention of character death
Summary: Blaine Anderson, baseball’s next superstar, is loved by millions, but he’s secretly on the hunt for his soulmate. It doesn’t take long for that search to become public. Will he meet the mysterious Kurt Hummel before it’s too late?
Notes: Written for Beyond Dapper's Blaine Big Bang and prompted here on the Glee Kink Meme.

First off, thank you to the incredible women who run the Blaine Big Bang. It’s been a pleasure finally getting something in for this challenge.

I’d been wanting to write soulmate!fic for several months when I came across the prompt on the GKM. It fit perfectly because, after Blaine and Darren, baseball is my love. I planned it out, all the way down to him being in either Atlanta or Boston, the rivals of both New York teams. In the end Atlanta won because a. the stigma of being an out public figure in the South made for quite an interesting story, and b. I’m a huge Red Sox fan and it scared me to do that and ruin my love for both. A few weeks after I began plotting and writing, basketball player Jason Collins came out. I knew right away that this story was going to be even more special.

There IS mention of character death that’s…well. Cory’s death changed a bit of the plot for me and in fact worked out in my favor.

Special thank yous go to my non-fandom friend Ashleigh, who deals with my obsessions and helps me work through everything, to Stuts for encouraging me to write when I didn’t want to write, and to Beth for stepping in late and creating the wonderful art for the story.



Disclaimer: None of the characters or teams involved in the story belong to me; they are properties of either Ryan Murphy or Major League Baseball.

Rating: R - people die, it’s a murder mystery!
Characters/Pairings: Blaine Anderson, Brittany Pierce, Finn Hudson, Quinn Fabray, Noah Puckerman, Rachel Berry, Kurt Hummel, Santana Lopez, with cameo appearances galore!
Warnings: People die. Repeat: people DIE. People you like die. This is an AU based off of the murder mystery movie ‘Clue’. So…people die. Just…letting you know. Also warning for slapstick humor and terrible jokes.
Summary: Mysterious invitations have been sent to certain notorious citizens of the Chicago area, asking them to gather at creepy Dalton Manor for a dinner party with an unknown host. Blaine Anderson, masquerading as humble butler Wadsworth, must exert all his considerable efforts and charms to keep everything under control and solve a significant problem when guests, servants and unexpected visitors start to turn up dead by various means! A modern riff on the 1985 cult classic film ‘Clue’ finds our beloved McKinley misfits reluctantly banding together to try and escape dinner with their lives.
Author’s Note: Here it is, the Clue AU I have been promising for way too long, written at last for the beyond_dapper Blaine Big Bang! So many thanks to Tina and Gladys for being amazing; I could not asked for a better beta or artist. They’re both incredible and this story is seeing the light of day thanks in so much part to them.

Please, please heed the warnings. This is a black comedy!
