991. After the war, Harry and Ron ask the Hogwarts school board to forbid students from bringing in their own brooms for Quidditch matches (to keep the richer families from buying an advantage with more powerful brooms) unless they have valid excuses like medical reasons. In exchange for giving all the Hogwarts Quidditch teams high quality brooms to use for matches and practice, Harry and Ron offer to help advertise the broom companies by being seasonal spokesmen for their ads.

I can’t believe this is an Unpopular Opinion™ but I was honestly so annoyed when Ginny tells Hermione, ‘Don’t start acting as though you understand Quidditch, you’ll only embarrass yourself.’ Literally the very first thing Hermione did back when the trio first became friends was lend Harry a copy of Quidditch Through The Ages. She then proceeded to set Snape on fire because because she thought he cursed Harry’s Nimbus 2000. For Harry’s thirteenth birthday, she gets him a broom servicing kit. In the match against Hufflepuff in the thick rain, Hermione appears out of nowhere and charms Harry’s glasses to repel water. When she made Ron’s timetable, she gave him evenings off every week for Quidditch practice and encouraged him every time he felt low. That very year she confunded Mclaggen during try-outs because he was talking shit about Ron and Ginny. So yeah Hermione Jean Granger understands Quidditch pretty damn well and that was unnecessarily petty.

I have one I have one! So, it's AU. Blaine is scarred to go to dentist (feel you, bb) and his tooth hurts more and more everyday. So finally, he mans up and goes. And meets the sexiest dentist ever.

Blaine knows that he’s waited too long.

It started with just an ache when he chewed on a caramel with the left side of his mouth, but he discarded it as a caramel problem instead of a tooth issue.

But when even eating mashed potatoes–seriously mashed– makes him feel like he’s trying to eat pebbles, making him clutch his cheek and wince, he has no option but admitting to a problem related to his tooth.

His attempt to avoid the dentist practice, though, is firmly ingrained in a childhood memory.

Well, to the last time he went to the dentist, but it’s not like his childhood was that long ago.

Little Blaine had a cavity, and the dentist had yelled at him for letting his tongue get in the way of the doctor’s tools–to the point that Blaine had kept his mouth opened by screaming and crying.

It’s not like he had a lot of control over his tongue, is it.


Now he’s trying to reason himself, hand raised over the pad of his phone.

I am a grown man.

I can control my tongue.

It’s silly to stay in pain.

But there is a little voice, one that sounds suspiciously like Teenage Cooper’s, that whispers in his ear.

It’s not that painful, Blainey, you can endure it a little bit–besides, soups are the big trend right now, you could survive with no solid food …

He could, sure, but where is the fun in that.

That, and the fact that an achy mouth doesn’t motivate him to date, and he’s tired of being by himself, moves his fingers forward to get an appointment with “Dr. Hummel”, who comes warmly recommended by Tina.

And Blaine does his best to silence Teenage Cooper’s little voice that insinuates that Dr. Hummel is going to do a reboot of Marathon Man with him.

You shush.

When Mom Knows

Blaine comes home from school giddy and with a wrinkled uniform.  It doesn’t take long at all for Pam to find out exactly what happened.

842 words.  Rated: PG

It was late on a Friday afternoon when Blaine finally arrived home after “practicing” with Kurt.  He walked into his house, goofy smile plastered onto his face, and went off in search of his mother.  

“Hey Mom,” he said as he walked into the living room and found her sitting on the sofa, typing away on her laptop.  

At the sound of her son’s voice, Pam’s head lifted and her eyes left whatever was on her screen in favor of looking up at her son.  She placed the laptop on top of the coffee table and turned all of her attention towards her son.  “Hey Blaine!  Come on over here!”  She patted the empty space on the sofa next to her, which Blaine quickly filled.

“What are you working on?”

“Oh just responding to your aunt’s email.  Your cousin got into medical school, and she’s all excited about out.  Has every right to be too.  But enough about them.  What’s got you giddy like this?”

Blaine ducked his head and blushed.  He could feel his face grow warm as he turned a shade of red.  “It may or may not have something to do with Kurt,” Blaine admitted.

people are really here on this website trying to argue that ginny is lying when she says says hermione doesn’t understand quidditch…like we’re all talking about the girl who calls the wronski feint a “wonky faint” and hates flying on brooms right

A note for fanfic readers....

I have been writing fanfic in the Glee fandom for four years now, and I’ve produced a massive volume of work. When I started, I was a housewife with 2 babies and a disabled school age child. Then, I got a job, but only for 2 days a week. Now, I work, as a writer, for around about 55 hours a week, plus I still keep house and raise my school age kids, supervise homework, take them to after school activities, etc. I do the vast majority of this (90%), on my own.

It does not leave much time for writing for pleasure, and, since writing is now my job, it’s not something I necessarily want to do in my down time, anyway.

I decided to take part in the Klaine summer challenge because, like most of you, I miss Klaine. I enjoyed writing Light Up The Sky but it was a constant struggle to find time for it. However, I was proud of the 33 chapters I produced, and I felt I gave the story a natural and happy ending. So, I was somewhat dismayed to get this review today:

“Absolutely devastated to see this ended the way it did. My heart dropped when I saw the time jump because there was so, so, so much potential in this story. There was so much more experiences that could have been added. Blaine’s move to New York. The first time they moved in together. Every argument and every "I’m sorry I was so stupid”. I know and understand completely that you’re not a full time writer here anymore, and that’s fine, I respect that. Even though it wouldn’t have been the same, you could have passed the completion of this story to someone else. There was just so much potential in this it’s sad to see it just tossed away like so.“

It’s a guest review, otherwise I’d reply to the poster direct and not mention it here, but as it is, I feel I want to have my say. I am NOT PAID to write fanfic. None of us are. Anything produced by the fandom for the fandom is done for the love of it, be it fic, art, videos, or setting up challenges or rewatch parties.

Saying that I tossed my story away is unfair and untrue. I have never, ever, ended a story prematurely. If I had detailed every bit of Blaine’s senior year, plus his move to NYC, plus their future, we’d be looking at a 100 chapter plus fic, and I don’t know many PAID writers who would want to produce something of that length.
When I was writing Light Up the Sky it was my kids summer break from school. I was juggling work, plus writing the fic, plus caring for and entertaining them. Despite this, I posted regularly, sometimes 2 or 3 chapters in a week, and I really enjoyed interacting with the fandom again. However, this review is enough to make me want to go away completely. I’d never hand my work over to someone else, it’s my story, written by me.

Please, just think before you go demanding this that and the other. Fic writers, fan artists, those who run fan sites… We are all people, with lives away from the fandom too. Every positive review boosts us, those reviewers who come back again and again, thank you, because it means so much.

I do not write this post to offend those people, merely to point out, as many people have previously, that fanfic writers give their time freely, and out of the goodness of their hearts. We cannot fill every suggestion, every prompt, detail every last second of a fictional couple’s journey. All we can do is write what’s in our hearts, to the best of our abilities, and that’s what I always try to do.

Quidditch Update!

Not really the stuff I post on here. But today I had my first quidditch tournament of the season and I couldn’t be more proud of my team. It was the first time ever that my team won three consecutive games out of four and we already have beaten our record from last year with two wins. (Two of these wins were out of snitch range and we scored over a hundred points which is also a first time!) I think if they had standings, we would be second in the unofficial pool.

This is also great cause it was the first time our team actually played together and we learned we can do great things. :)

The only down part, we had three players hurt int he first game; one with a concussion and cut on his face, another with a sprained ankle, and another player who needed 8 stitches above his eyes because we’re pretty sure his glasses got him with he ran into another player. 

But over all, good day of quidditch, but I will be sore in the morning.

My brother is trying to convince me that his house (Gryffindor) is better than my house (Hufflepuff) and I don't think he realizes that for all time I will think of Hufflepuff and Slytherin as better than Gryffindor and that his opinion is, in fact, wrong. Because obviously Gryffindor isn't the best. Yeah.

fight each other. get fists involved. it’s the only way to settle it babe

Where do you publish your work? I just to be just Fanfiction.net, but I’ve expanded to AO3 and Tumblr as my main ones. 

What medium/application/etc. do you write with? 90% of the time, I draft out my stories- especially the long one-shots. The other 10% is me writing on the laptop as I go about answering a prompt or writing something I thought of.

Do you collaborate with others? Yes! @fezwearingjellybananas and I have an ongoing AOS Captain America AU going (and then we made another Marvel AU with DC characters recently. It’s amazing). I also talk a lot with other Captain Canary writers to bounce ideas around.

How much editing do you do before you publish? Usually I do a read through as I draft, and then another after I type it up.

Do you listen to music? Oh my gosh, yes! I love writing and listening to music. Although if Flares is playing, then get ready for sad feels.

How do you decide what to write about? Most of the time, I take prompts and fill them (and get asked for more). Sometimes, ideas will strike me and I can’t help but write about them.

When do you write? Whenever I find time, I will pull out a notebook I have on hand and work for a little while.

How often do you write? As often I can find time, I’m writing. Unless I get distracted.

Do you take requests? Why/why not? Yes! I love to take requests. It’s fun to write something and see how it lines up with what the requester was hoping for.

Is there a genre or type of story you want to write but are hesitant to? I can’t think of anything at the moment.

Any inspirational quotes, videos, tricks, articles, etc that help you stay motivated? If you’re basing a fic off a show/movie, rewatch a few episodes as you write to get the vibe down. Also, listen to music that fits what you’re writing. That really gets you in the mood.

Go to page 7 of your WIP, skip to the 7th line, and share 7 sentences.

“The world is not a fair place, Mr. Snart.”

“Don’t I know it,” he said, uncrossing his arms. “It’s full of crooks, just like me. And I’ve just stolen the one of the most important things here.”

Druce exchanged a glance with his fellow Time Masters. “You’ve been nowhere anything valuable.”

Snart smiled. “That’s what you think.”

Waiting For The Dawn by framby

It wasn’t suppose to be like that, Kurt and Blaine were supposed to stay together. But they didn’t. Kurt was laying in this hospital bed,not remembering his past nor their break up. Asking for Blaine who was just a shadow of his former self.

Aimres sat comfortably yet elegantly against a large oak tree on a hill overlooking the Quidditch pitch, sketch pad in lap and long fingers stained in charcoal; his favorite tools. As it was a chilly end of September, a green and silver scarf adorned his neck; keeping him warm as he worked outside. Dark waves moved slightly with the breeze, falling back into their naturally styled place atop his head. Deep brown eyes, flecked with violet in the right light, studied the page below, filled with concentration and radiating in artistic passion. The Yaxley heir looked, in no other words, the picture of pureblood perfection; serene yet focused, dangerous yet charming.

Throughout his years at Hogwarts, he must have drawn the pitch a few dozen times, but he never tired of finding new angles to see it from. It was also a sort of tradition of his to draw the area whenever Slytherin won a match. As they had won against Ravenclaw the other day, there he found himself with his sketchbook drawing the field once again. To be honest, he never really liked Quidditch. Sure, from an artistic point of view, he could admire the racing colors and appreciate the defying of gravity shapes the bodies created, but as an activity he found it dull. Additionally, he much preferred drawing the landscape before him to the people within the stadium. Despite obsessively coveting people, he hated drawing them; it seemed like a fake ownership. He wanted to own the light in their eyes, and breathe in every step of their life as his own. Speaking of people, out of the corner of his eye, Aimres spied a person approaching him.

“And what, little bird, could you be thinking? Sneaking up on a snake? Do you wish to be bitten?” He asked melodically, not raising his gaze from the parchment immediately.
