Fic Summary: Every person has a story.  Harry Potter wasn’t the only student at Hogwarts back then, but everyone seems to forget that when they tell the tale of the Battle of Hogwarts.  When a box of forgotten photographs is discovered 16 years later in the Room of Requirement, another story begins to unfold. Blaine Anderson and Kurt Hummel’s story is finally about to be told.

Note: I am so grateful to have been able to work with the amazing too-much-tea and all the wonderful art she has created (and is in the process of creating for future events in this fic).  I am also so deeply indebted to your-tragic-fairytale, my absolutely fantastic beta, who is the reason that the words sounds as pretty as they do.  This has been such a fun collaborative process for me and I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did!

So far, I have three publishable chapters and lots of bits and pieces that don’t fit anywhere just yet. Even though I know the exact trajectory of the fic, I don’t know how long it will be in total.  I also don’t know when I’ll finish or be posting more.

And no, I couldn’t resist using Aida lyrics for this after I wrote the description and realized the song fits this too well for me to ignore it. Go listen if you’re not familiar!

Finally, I want to thank everyone who is choosing to read on despite the warnings.

On to the fic!

Klaine: My King, Your Lionheart

animeangelriku:

Title: My King, Your Lionheart
Artist: overcaustically
Author: animeangelriku
Rating (art/fic if different): PG/PG-13
Word Count: 21k
Warnings (if any): None
Fic Summary: Blaine thinks that being the Royal Prince of Dalton is great and all, but it stops being so amazing when he starts having more and more responsibilities, and it becomes somewhat of a curse when he realizes he’s in love with his best friend, who happens to be a stable boy, and thus, ineligible as a candidate for Blaine to marry. 
Link to Art: Right here!
Link to Fic: You can read it here or on AO3! (I will add the link as soon as I post it!)
(A/N: So this little bastard was supposed to be up yesterday, but I had horrible internet trouble, which isn’t all that important. Anyway, I want to give the biggest of shout-outs to Robert, who has been one of the best artists I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. He was always patient with me, he always had something to say about everything I sent him (sorry that I made you suffer so much, bro!), and he always told me not to burn myself out. This fic, while it may be for everybody else in the Klaine community, is for you, man. I couldn’t send it to you when I was done with it, so I hope you like the final result as much as I liked writing it. Thank you for everything!)

Blaine’s favorite game involved “crowning” his best friend Kurt with his own crown.

Well, no, that was the beginning of his favorite game.

Fine, it was the beginning of all his favorite games (all right, about half of them, in any case).

Blaine would take off his crown and put it on Kurt’s head. With his wooden sword (he would use a real one, but he wasn’t going to get one of those until he was ten), he would touch each of Kurt’s shoulders and say, “I now proclaim you Prince Kurt, defender of the kingdom of Dalton, best friend of His Royal Prince Blaine!”

controlofwhatido:

Title: What To Expect When He’s Expecting 
Artist: froggydarren
Author: controlofwhatido
Rating (art/fic if different):  G/PG-13
Word Count: 6k
Warnings: Mpreg, way too much fluff
Summary: Kurt is seven months pregnant, on modified bed rest, and has a very doting husband. 
Author’s Note: Thank you to froggydarren for the cutest art that I just couldn’t pass up when the kblreversebang mod needed a pinch-hitter, and thank you luckiedee for looking this fic over to make sure I’m posting something coherent. (If your experience with modified bedrest differs from Kurt’s, please don’t flood my ask with corrections/details. I took liberties here and there, and also… this is an mpreg fic. And, if you’re not sure what a snoogle is, take a look here before reading.)

fmhartz91:

All the Beautiful Pieces

Artist: freakingpotter

Author: fmhartz91

Beta: treebleeding

Rating: NC17

Summary:

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.

(Mention of a character death that happened in the past.)

AUTHOR NOTES***

I am posting this story late because I had it completed (at more than 30,000 words) and while transferring it to a new computer, the file became corrupted, and no matter what I did, it couldn’t be recovered. It killed me especially because freakingpotter did such an incredible job with the art that it deserved to be posted with a completed fic. But I couldn’t sit on these beautiful drawings any longer. So I am posting this as a WIP while I retype all the chapters from memory. In the meantime, oogle over this amazing art, and make sure to heap freakingpotter with tons of praise for being such an amazing artist, and such a supportive person. She was such a joy to work with. I absolutely dedicate this story to her <3

Klaine Reversebang Fic: The Prince and the Dragon

satonawall:

Title: The Prince and the Dragon
Artist: leocolfer
Author: satonawall
Rating: fic PG-13, art probably less
Word Count: 20,700-ish
Fic Summary: After he hears a prophecy threatening the end of his evil reign, King Richard Anderson sends his son Blaine away, to be guarded by a dragon. As an afterthought, he probably picked the wrong one.

A/N: I’d like to thank leocolfer for the great art; it was a real pleasure to write for it. Also thanks go to her for listening to me plan and for reading through the first draft and giving comments. (On that note, all typos inconsitencies etc are mine.)
You can find the art and tell her how awesome it is here.

—-

It was a beautiful day, the sun at its highest point, when the soothsayer knocked on the gates of Dalton Castle looking for a cup of water. The stable boys, eager to play with the dog that trailed after her, quickly provided one for her and she sat down by the well to enjoy it.

Generally, King Richard had no time for travellers; in fact, he barely acknowledged their existence. But by happenstance, he was walking by and his gaze, disapproving as always, fell on her unarranged hair, made its way down her grey linen robes to her simple leather shoes and fixated on the ornate jar peaking out of the canvas bundle she’d lain down by her feet, his mouth opening and the disdain turning into excitement.

He was not a wizard himself, but he’d spent a considerable amount of time with witches and wizards, and he was capable of recognising a soothsayer’s salt jar.

The value of the woman drinking from his well soared in his eyes.

For if there was one thing king Richard Anderson was beyond disapproving, it was superstitious.

Klaine Reverse Bang Fic: Sinner or Saviour?

klaineitupanotch:

Title: Sinner or Saviour?

Artist: colfer-my-criss

Author: elfinder (klaineitupanotch on tumblr)

Rating (art/fic if different): PG13/M

Word Count: 63,644

Warnings (if any): um, nothing major than I can think of. 

Fic Summary: After years of feeling lost, Blaine Anderson thought he’d finally found his path in life: one that would make his family proud while keeping him far away from a life of sin. But despite his best efforts to start anew, Blaine finds himself falling into the same morally reprehensible patterns as before. Seeking guidance, Blaine looks to God for help but never in a million years did he expect his prayers to be answered — especially when his potential saviour stirs in him the very thing he had been trying so hard to escape.

[Chapter 1][Chapter 2][Chapter 3][Chapter 4][Chapter 5][Chapter 6][Chapter 7][Chapter 8][Chapter 9][Chapter 10][Epilogue]

Author’s Note: This story came about when I took on a prompt as a pitch hitter for the Klaine Reverse Bang challenge. It turned out to be quite an interesting challenge, as I’ve never written a fic involving religion before. I had a lot of fun collaborating with the artist, colfer-my-criss, who gave me feedback on the story as I developed it! Big thanks to my beta for this story too, and getting it editing in such a timely fashion.

Klaine Reverse Bang 2014 - The Untold story of Little Red Riding Hood

hazelandglasz:

Title: The Untold Story of Little Red Riding Hood

Author: Hazelandglasz

Artist: Crazinaway

Beta: Framby

Genre: hm, fantasy / fairy tale I guess ;)

Word count: 5.508

Summary: What if what we heard about Little red and the Wolf were not *exactly* what happened? What if we let them told their story?

image

"Once upon a time, there was a dear young man named —"

"What are you doing?"

"Telling our daughter the story of how we met."

"Oh that should be fun, let’s hear it!"

—-

Once upon a time, there was a dear young man named Blaine, who was loved by everyone who looked at him, but most of all by his grandfather, and there was nothing he would not have given to the boy.

Once he gave him a pocketwatch, telling him that “punctuality is the politeness of kings”.

Another time, he gave him a silky red bow tie, showing the young boy how to tie it around his neck, for “doors open for you when you wear a bow tie.”

And once, he gave him a little coat of red velvet with a hood which suited the young boy so well he never left his parents’ home without it; so Blaine was always called Little Red Dancing Hood.

And, of course, the biggest of shout-outs to Robert, whose gorgeous fanart inspired this fic. Robert, sweetie, I hope you like this, and I’m sorry that I couldn’t send it to you before and that I had to change it. Thank you for being so patient and understanding with me, and I hope we get to work again in future bangs, whether they’re Klaine, Kurt/Blaine Reverse, or next year’s CrissColfer Bang! Thank you so much for everything, and I hope you’re satisfied with this fic!)

“’Night, buddy.”

“Goodnight, Dad.”

After his dad closed the door behind him, Kurt’s room still wasn’t that dark. His father had plugged in a night light next to his bed, so his entire room was better lit than he was used to seeing it when it was time for bed.

Of course, he’d had problems sleeping for a while now, so a lot of people had suggested he get a night-light. If he had a nightmare and woke up in an illuminated space, he would calm down long enough to go back to sleep instead of staying awake, afraid he would have another nightmare. So far, he hadn’t had any nightmares, but he’d also spent nights rolling around in bed for hours, unable to sleep.

This was one of those nights.
