Kurt, a tree demon, runs a magical, supernatural circus that, unfortunately, is in the red. Trying to come up with a way to keep them afloat, his right hand man … uh, goblin … convinces Kurt to hire some new acts. Kurt reluctantly agrees, as long as that new act isn’t human.
Enter Blaine - the human conman who’s about to try and change Kurt’s mind. (10511 words)
So, this started life in a number of different ways. I wanted to write some stuff for @sunshineoptimismandangels, for her birthday, and at the time, I had started writing this as an original piece, inspired by @vampireisabitstrong’s “Graveyard Book au” which I was also writing at the time. But after a while, I had to come to grips with the fact that I was writing Glee characters. The character of Puck, in particular, was inspired in part by sunshine’s character of Felix from her amazing story Heartstone (whom she’s reluctant to admit is a goblin, but I know better xD) Also, Kurt is a Spriggan, but I added hints of Kapre as a nod to Darren’s Filipino heritage. I hope you all enjoy. Please let me know. And no, if you’re curious, I wasn’t smoking anything when I wrote this xD
