Title: Woo Me to Wayfaring
Pairing: Chris/Darren
Length/Rating: (6,145/14,420) / PG
Summary: Chris is a young author struggling to write his third novel and it’s not going well at all.  It doesn’t help that the new neighbor has taken to sitting on the fire escape at all hours with his guitar. It’s a distraction he really doesn’t need. The other side of The Art of Observation.

Warnings: In this AU, Chris’ sister has passed away.  Her death is unspecified and does NOT occur on-page, having already happened, but the fact of it is discussed through Chris’ remembrances and emotional ties.

(AO3) (Part Two)

Act One – When the Road Beckons

It’s gone past sunset and there is someone singing just outside Chris’ window. A soft, warbling voice and gently plucked strings rise above the constant din of the streets below and Chris frowns.

Hi, for the anon looking for a crisscolfer fic were they were fooling around, but then they ended it permanently when Darren couldn't come out, and after Glee ended, Darren went on to star in another tv show and Chris went on to write a hit tv show that would compete against Darren's. I think that's Gravity thou art a heartless bitch and its sequel Like a Satellite trapped in orbit (around you). It's in nasonexyouswine's livejournal

It’s in the library - been years since I read it. Thanks!

Gravity Thou Art A Heartless Bitch by nasonexyouswine

Darren and Chris are friends. Like really good friends. And good friends can have sex every now and again without it meaning anything right? Right?

Sequel: Like A Satellite Trapped in Orbit (around you)

Tropes/Genre: CrissColfer fanfiction, canon!CC, angst, romance

Lynne’s review: Matt Bomer is amazing in this story. It’s written so damn well, the feels are so intense, the inner dialogue tugged at my emotions, and the angst was very real, but not over the top. It’s just so, so good. The characterizations are on point. I’ve read it countless times and you should, too.

Summary: Single parent Kurt is moving back to Ohio. Having been hurt before, will he ever find anyone to love and trust again?

Tropes/Genre: daddy!Kurt, fluff, romance, teacher!Blaine

Review: Becky is one of a small handful of writers who have the power to either make me babble incoherently or completely speechless with their words. She has made me fall in love with every version of the boys she wrote, but none more than this verse. She doesn’t shy away from realism. She challenges me as her reader whether I want to be challenged or not (though I welcome it wholeheartedly). Incredibly well crafted and realistic, Sweet and heartbreaking at times, this story has fast approached my top must-reads.

****Morphine As Truth Serum by sarah-is-dreaming-of (Rated PG13 - COMPLETE) When Darren needs help at 3 AM, there’s just one person he wants to call: Chris. And thanks to some pretty potent painkillers, he may just end up divulging a little too much about his growing crush on his best friend and co-worker. CrissColfer hurt/comfort, angst, humor, and bucketloads of fluff.

Chris and Darren have the world at their feet and everything they have always wanted, except the one thing they have needed most, each other.

And Chris… Chris is starting to realize he doesn’t mind this one bit.  One of the best CC fics I’ve ever read - sweet and smutty - so well written you’ll LOVE IT!
