But Blaine wants out of the life, while Cooper wants to pull off one last con – and for his mark, he’s selected reclusive automotive heir Kurt Hummel.

Tropes/Genre: con artist!Blaine, wealthy!Kurt, AU, future!fic, angst, romance, Cooper Anderson

Lynne’s review: It’s all told from Blaine’s POV. There’s so much going on here, take your time reading this to keep up. Very interesting version of Kurt, a completely different Klaine relationship. I quite enjoyed this one.

Read at: AO3

A joyous occasion means Adam is summoned back to the Crawford familial bosom in England, and naturally Sebastian is his plus-one - under some slight duress, of course. It’s not that Sebastian isn’t interested in meeting Adam’s family, it’s just there’s so many of them…and did there really have to be a wedding involved?

Join Sebastian and Adam as they journey to Ingatestone for the wedding of the year - and the relationship challenge of a lifetime.

I have been recently reading more and more Kurt/Sebastian fics, so I thought I would compile a list of some of my favorites. They have such an interesting dynamic and the authors in this fandom write some truly wonderful and beautiful stories that I wanted to appreciate. So whether you’ve read all of these already or if you’re just getting to reading them, I hope you enjoy these lovely stories as much as I did! 
Note: These are all complete, multi-chapter stories.

bite me by sparrow30 - Vampire!AU, Kurt’s hilarious and has his classic snark, Sebastian’s intrigued and confused and so caring in sneaky ways. 

europe is our playground by GlassParade - future fic, where Kurt and Sebastian go on an adventure throughout Europe. It’s heartbreaking, and beautiful and so intriguing. 

if my heart was a house by flipmeforward - Loosely based on The Notebook, it stays incredibly true to both Kurt and Sebastian and was so wonderful to read. They meet in the summer after graduating high school and you fall in love with them as they fall in love with each other. 

we were never here by SweetestDisarray - this is one of my all time favorites, college!AU where Kurt and Sebastian make an unlikely friendship and navigate being together. (plus, it has a sequel that ties together everything really well and it leaves you with such a blissful feeling)

life in technicolor by hammersandstrings - this is the story that actually got me started on kurtbastian; it’s a pretend relationship au, which is my actual favorite. Basically, Kurt’s a Broadway star and gets asked to be Sebastian’s PR boyfriend. 

runaways by larinia713 -  Kurt needs a second job to pay the bills, what better way than to brush up on his bartending skills at the hottest gay club in New York, owned by one Sebastian Smythe. Love this so much, it’s sweet and interesting and so hilarious. 

more than i can stand by illyriazshell - Oh man, this story is delicious. Kurt and Sebastian are engaged, they have a voyeuristic streak and a few communication issues but it works out in the end because the love they have for each other exceeds the rest. (there’s also Kurt/Cooper in this which is a huGE guilty pleasure of mine. heed the warnings!)

creep: a love story in five acts (and an epilogue) by lilinas - alright, this is one of my favorite authors so I knew I would love this story and I was completely right. It’s so incredibly sweet and I love the way the two of them navigate their movement from friends to more. Really beautiful. 

Drabble: Incentive (Klaine, PG...ish)

“I hate doing dishes by hand,” Kurt grumbles as he scrubs dried-on marinara sauce off of one of his and Rachel’s thrifted dinner plates, part of an expertly mismatched set. Sure, gloves protect his hands from the scalding water, and okay, if he would just be a little more conscientious about washing dishes immediately after eating things would be easier.

Word Count: 2100+ 

Characters: Blaine Anderson, Arizona Robbins, Calliope Torres

Picking up where the ‘End of a Fraying Rope’ arc left off, I believe this story officially opens season two of the 'Heart Conditions’ 'verse, and it is the first half of a two part arc.

Fic Drabble: Wake Up Call (Burt, Blaine, PG)

Nikki prompted Saturday morning Klaine and…I failed utterly to deliver. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Written on my phone so no formatting or any fanciness!


Saturday mornings, Burt reflects, are a lot more fun with Blaine around.

His son has never been the best morning person, and so he’s used to basically thrusting coffee at the kid and avoiding him until Kurt says something that’s understandably English. This has been going on for years, he’s accustomed to it.

Adding Finn to the household was an interesting contrast. His stepson lurches out of bed with the first alarm and ambles downstairs, where he spends the first hour of his day being very confused that he’s awake at all.

Blaine, surprisingly, shares a tendency for grumpiness with Kurt, but is a little more functional. He, at least, can be greeted without Burt feeling like his head is going to be snapped off.

He is also usually the first downstairs. “Morning,” is all Burt says when his son-in-law appears, keeping his tone very neutral, very non-committal. He jerks his head to indicate the coffeemaker, freshly finished brewing and with the family coffee mugs lined up neatly beside it.

“Xzbrglfngh,” Blaine replies grumpily, shuffling over to the machine with his hair in a riot of flattened, frizzy curls. He pours two mugs of coffee, snorts at the cream and sugar, and begins to shuffle off back to the room he and Kurt share.

“Hey, Blaine.”

The sound of shuffling feet pauses. “Nrglebznk?”

“Don’t forget your pants next time.”

Burt turns away from the stove just in time to see Blaine’s cheeks flush red as his eyes go wide with horror while he looks down at his legs. Which are clad in blue pajama pants. As they always are.

Seven years Blaine’s been with Kurt, six since they began living together and sharing a room when they come home for holidays, one since they got married and he still falls for this every time. Burt has to bite his lip to try and hide his sniggering.

“I…I…” Blaine stands frozen in the doorway as he realizes he has been the butt of Burt’s joke yet again. Much more awake and alert now that panic has flooded his system, he clutches his mugs of coffee and sputters incoherently for a moment before visibly gathering his dignity around him like a cape. Drawing his shoulders back, he stands very straight before glaring at Burt, turning around and marching out of the kitchen, indignation in his wake.

Burt waits for his footsteps to recede up the stairs before he loses it entirely, bent over and slapping the countertop as he wheezes with laughter. This is how Carole finds him a scant minute later, and she shakes her head even as she tries to restrain her own giggles.

“Burt, when are you going to stop pulling that joke on poor Blaine?”

With effort, he manages to bring himself back down to a manic, cheek-aching grin. “Aw, honey,” he says, patting his wife on the butt. “I’ll stop doing it when it stops being funny.”

ficlet: mouth

So I had a sudden urge to write about Blaine’s mouth. Klaine, NC-17.

There are a lot of things to like about Blaine - his gorgeous eyes, his strong calves, his perfect ass, his smooth, muscular back, his hair just right for pulling - but Kurt thinks he might best like Blaine’s mouth.

It’s a good mouth, an excellent mouth, that bottom lip like a cushion and that top lip with its perfect smiling curve. Kurt likes to watch Blaine’s mouth when he talks, can’t take his eyes off of it, never has been able to. Which was awkward before they started dating, but it’s been a good long while now. A long while in which Kurt has learned well what all that mouth can do, so he feels pretty all right being a little more blatant about it now.

Especially because sometimes Kurt’s constant oral scrutiny makes Blaine squirm, and blush, and his eyes get that sparkle -

- he’s getting distracted.

Fic: Got Me Floating, Got Me Flying (Blaine/Sam, PG-13)

Title: Got Me Floating, Got Me Flying
Author: Lissa (glitterdammerung)
Cheerleader: Katrina (drblaine)
Prompter: Pink (honeysuckle-pink)
Prompt: Bi-curious/questioning Sam and a Blaine who’s a little bummed out that Kurt’s dating again. The prompt was for smut, but I stopped pretty short, sorry, Pink. :)
Rating: PG-13 at best.
Word Count: 2500
Summary: Sam wants to know what it’s like to kiss a guy, and there’s only one guy he knows who might be able to give him a hand.
Author’s Note: I’m not ready to dive into Blam-smut and maybe never will be, but when Pink prompted this I found myself at least ready to dip my toes into some making out. Title is from ‘This Kiss’ by Faith Hill.

It started when the two of them were the last ones left behind in the astronomy room after the Student Council meeting.

Fic: a second first (Kurt/Adam, PG)

Title: a second first
Author: GlassParade (aka Glitterdammerung)
Pairing: Kurt/Adam (aka Kadam)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 1700+
Summary: The second first kiss of Kurt’s life.
Author’s Note: Several of my fellow multishippers have been asking me to write a bit of Kadam lately, and I finally had an idea for it. I don’t expect this is anything like what might happen in canon, if anything does happen in canon, but I hope if anything does that it’s at least a nice experience for two charming boys. And if it doesn’t or isn’t, well, at least I’ve got my feeble wee effort at a nice experience for them.


“Thank you for coming all the way out here,” Kurt babbles as he slides the door of the loft open. On the other side, Adam waits expectantly, a cheery smile lighting up his face as always, beanie plopped on the back of his head in a manner that manages to be both rakish and evocative of Dickensian street urchins all at once. “I just have all this space and -”

Baker by day, actor whenever he can find the free time for it, Adam Crawford has a cheery, peaceful life and a weakness for damaged people. Sebastian Smythe is an unhappy office drone and habitual playboy who is about to find out he has a previously undiscovered weakness for Englishmen who carry baked goods in their coat pockets. It’s the most completely unlikely pairing in the world - but the good thing about something being unlikely is that while it may not be easy, it’s certainly never boring.

Everyone who has ever made some sort of artwork is on an especial list of gratitude for helping to bring the story more to life. I could never ever have done this without you all and I love you more than you know.
