Kurtbastian one-shot - “Pas de Deux” (Rated T)

Kurt is minding his own business, teaching his little group of beginner skaters the basics, when a spy from the opposite side of the rink infiltrates his midst. (1637 words)

This is a one-shot for a larger story that I’m writing called “Outside Edge” with Kurt and Sebastian as rival figure skaters. I’m just putting this out there to see who might be interested. Let me know what you think in the tags. :) Teenage crush AU. 

Edit *** For those of you who have been asking, there will not be any B*laine in this story, so no worries about B*laine unfriendliness :) 

Read on AO3.

Kurt takes a spin around his little group of novice skaters, counting heads as he glides along on their coned-off section of the rink and double-checking that everyone is accounted for. He’s glad he was able to snag the ages five through seven pre-alpha group. It’s so nice to be able to usher an excited gaggle of beginners towards their first swizzles down the ice, even if he will have to scoop up a few along the way. But that’s all right. That just means less arm and chest work he’ll have to do at the gym later on.

He has an even dozen, which is a good size for a group this age, at this skill level. As they progress, he’ll be able to choreograph a number for them, something they can show off to their parents on the last day of class. It helps that Kurt is currently co-captain of Westerville Ice-plex’s official competition figure skating dance team – ParadIce. The kids in his group – boys and girls alike – stare at him in envious, open-mouthed awed as he twirls around them, dressed in his bedazzled black team jacket.

Nope, he doesn’t foresee any discipline problems here.

Kurtbastian one-shot - “The Pain” (Rated PG13)

Part 12 of Outside Edge

Read on AO3.

“Alright! Thank you so much, guys and gals, for showing up to this year’s hockey team tryouts!” Sebastian glides down the line of potential recruits, dropping pucks in front of them while he speaks. “It’s been a long three days of drills, but we’ve finally narrowed it down to you guys.” Sebastian stops to give the kids in front of him - holding their sticks at the ready, waiting for their chance to be unleashed and show their stuff - a stern once over. “You should be proud of yourselves. That’s a huge accomplishment.” They hold themselves a little straighter, a little taller for Sebastian saying that. “Before we begin, a little background for those of you who may not already know …”

Sebastian knows a handful will already know what he’s about to say. These kids have been raised at this rink. They could skate before they could walk. Sebastian has seen a few of them grow up here. He’s been their junior coach for the past five years.

God. He’s only a teenager and already he feels like an old man.

Kurtbastian one-shot - “Under Stress” (Rated PG)

With a stress fracture to his right foot, Kurt is off his blades for a little while, watching his boyfriend enviously as Sebastian performs triple axels as easily as if he’s skipping down the street. But Sebastian, knowing how heartbroken Kurt feels being sidelined, finds a way to take his injured boyfriend out on the ice. (1854 words)

So, this one is inspired by my own injury that kind of has me sidelined, as well as an excerpt from the book “My Sergei: A Love Story” written by figure skater Ekaterina Gordeeva about her late husband Sergei Grinkov. There are also snippets in here that give hints about the main fic … which is out there … somewhere xD

“Okay, Kurt! Watch this one! I promise, it’s gonna be better than the last one!”

“Oh, boy,” Kurt mutters, envy dripping from the glare in his blue eyes as his boyfriend circles the ice. “How many triples do you have in this new program anyway?”

“Uh … six, I think? Seven, maybe?”

“Isn’t that a little much?”

“Maybe. But it never hurts to be extra.”

Kurtbastian one-shot - “Missing You” (Rated PG13)

Thomas is missing Kurt terribly while Kurt’s away on his first business trip since Thomas joined their family. When Thomas confesses to Sebastian that he misses the way Kurt smells, Sebastian finds a way to help Thomas miss his Papa just a little bit less. (1271 words)

“B-but … I w-want you to come h-home, Papa!” Thomas weeps, arms wrapped around his puppy’s neck, hugging the service animal a little too tight. But Hepburn doesn’t seem to mind. Sebastian has never met such a patient creature in his life. Still, he gives Thomas’s left arm a tug as a signal to ease up.

“I know, Tom-Tom, I know. I want to come home, too. I have to wrap up a few things here, but I’ll be home to tuck you in tomorrow night.” Sebastian can hear Kurt’s voice tremble as much as their son’s. He looks at his phone, smiling sympathetically at his husband on the opposite end of the line, his heart breaking with every one of Thomas’s sniffles. Kurt’s a strong man. He can get emotional from time to time, but it takes a lot to make him teary-eyed.

A sad Thomas is at the top of that list.

Kurtbastian one-shot - “Stage Mom” (Rated PG)

After watching a mom tear down one of their skaters, Kurt calls off his date with Sebastian so the two of them can lend a helping hand. (1232 words)

So before anyone gives me any kind of grief with regard to my original characters, the things I write about in this verse are actual things I see going on at the rink where my daughter trains. I’m not stereotyping based on race or anything else. “Maya” is a real girl, and the mom I’m writing about is her real mother. And this is how she, and many other moms, act. And yes, they happen to be Chinese. The little boy who is my Kurt muse is the one with the mom who yells in Russian. Our rink has its share of awful stage parents. Maya and her mom just happen to be the two I see most often. But we also have a surplus of kids who are always willing to step up and help when one of their peers is down in the dumps, and that just warms my heart, so I had to write it. Please let me know what you think. I’m still plugging away on the main story, so worry not :)

Part 17 of Outside Edge

Read on AO3.


The girl sitting in the center of the ice, catching her breath after her latest epic fall, wipes her red cheeks with snow-covered gloves.

“I said again, Maya!”

“I’m sorry, Momma,” Maya says, climbing shakily to her blades, “but I can’t do that jump while you’re here!”

“Why not?” Maya’s mother - wrapped in several layers of turtleneck, sweater, jacket, and blanket - stands from her bench to address her daughter from behind the low wall of the penalty box.

“You make me nervous!”

The woman slams a gloved hand on the wood edge. “That’s no excuse!”
