Klaine fic - “All the Beautiful Pieces” (Rated NC17)
Blaine Anderson is spending the summer after graduation flipping houses with his brother for Cooper’s total home renovation show. The show features the worst houses Cooper can buy, with Blaine playing the role of lackey so that Cooper can torture him in front of his viewers. The last house Blaine has to renovate is an original Victorian House in San Diego, CA, which is in terrible condition. But this house turns out to be more than just another job. It was once owned by a famous Vaudeville ventriloquist by the name of Andrew Smythe. It houses a very interesting collection of items - among them, two life-sized puppets. Blaine isn’t sure exactly why, but he’s drawn to them - especially to the one with the beautiful blue eyes. He convinces Cooper to give him the puppets, and Blaine starts to restore them. In the course of the restoration, Blaine finds out that neither puppet is simply a run-of-the-mill puppet, and Andrew Smythe was hiding a secret that will be the key to saving two lives.
Tears stream hot and unchecked down Blaine’s cheeks
by the time he reaches the beach house, but for the life of him, he can’t
remember when he started crying. He doesn’t think he was crying when he left
Kurt’s room - no, memorial - with the suit clutched to his chest.
He might have gotten misty-eyed when he closed the door and walked numbly down
the hallway. A tear could have welled up and broken free as he hurried down the
stairs. But between crossing the living room, locking up the house, and walking
to his van, everything else he did is a blur.
