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.
~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!
