This art was made for Klaine Reverse Bang 2014. As soon as I saw Blaine with eye patch in 3x11 I wanted to draw this :)
Two authors choose this art to make a story!
(Oh wow I totally forgot that yesterday was the 12th.)
So posting this one a second time too.
It’s amazing, so if you have the time you should go and read it!

A Long Forgotten Road
Title: A Long Forgotten Road
Word Count: 36,000+
Warnings: Mention of major and minor character death (not Kurt or Blaine)
Fic Summary: Kurt, an Elf from Rivendell, is hand-chosen by Lord Elrond to guide Blaine, a Blue Mountain Dwarf, against his father’s wishes to a Mountain no one has been to in ages. Kurt is not too thrilled at the idea of acting as a Dwarf babysitter, but he has no choice. This is the one and only chance he’ll ever have to leave Rivendell and go on an adventure. Along the way Kurt discovers that this journey and this Dwarf aren’t entirely what they seem.
Note: I happen to be a huge LOTR fan. I tried to do my best to stick to the Tolkien style, however, as this is a romance at heart, there are many times when I needed to stray. Also, I wanted this to be my story, not a Tolkien emulated story, so of course the style will be different overall. I also tried to stay true to the world Tolkien created, but for the purposes of this story I needed to stray there once of twice, too. Timeline wise, this story takes place before the discovery of the One Ring by Bilbo Baggins. (Also, I apologize that I did not think up original names for Blaine’s brother or the members of his clan and relied on Glee characters, but this is also a Glee story, so I wanted to stick them in where I could). Also, since Kurt’s father in this story does not resemble the character of Burt in the story, he is not specifically named. I hope this all make sense.
I want to say a special thank you to riverance for her amazing art, and her incredible kindness. This story wouldn’t even exist without her, and I hope it does the beauty of her images justice :)

Hidden Tresure, a Cliff’s Secret
Title: Hidden Treasure, a Cliff’s Secret
Author: luminary-child (tumblr) // shortstacck (lj)
Word Count: 26 800+
Warnings: Kidnapping and violence
Summary: “Parading with a bunch of pirates, one led by a supposedly cruel captain, hasn’t been what Kurt was expecting (for one, he expected to die by now, but he hasn’t yet and that’s all that matters), but now Kurt’s no longer as afraid of Captain Blaine as he had been.” A tale of loss, adventure, love, and how to deal with pirate Blaine Anderson. Based off the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
A/N: This beastie got entirely carried away from me, so here I am posting almost a week late and with many to thank. Thank you to riverance who gave me such gorgeous art to work from, and for being patient with me when I wasn’t ready to post yet. A huge thank you to loveheartlover for beta-ing this monster on such short notice and giving me solid advice. Thank you to this one for cheering me on and reminding that I need to sleep sometimes. And a general thank you to Google and the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks for existing. My love goes out to all of you<3

Word Count: 8500
Summary: While taking a detour on his way home from work, Kurt comes across a music box in the window of an antiques shop and feels compelled to take a closer look.
I was very excited to write for such interesting and stunning art for this year’s reverse bang. keepwaitingorstartwalking did such a fabulous job!
Thanks to Emily for beta reading! <3
Can also be read on AO3.
Art post is here.
It’s not quite raining, but the air is thick with moisture and Kurt feels damp all over. His face is clammy and his clothes beaded as though abandoned outside all night to be covered in dew. He’s chilled to the bone and wants nothing more than to curl up in his comfiest pyjamas with a hot drink and a magazine. He rushes past shops and people, jumping over a puddle left from the day before. There is a crowd formed on the corner exactly where he usually crosses the street, so he rolls his eyes and shoulders on past and down to the next crossing.
He has never noticed the bodega on the corner before, bright flowers in buckets outside soaking up the water in the air, and next to it, the dirt-streaked window of an antiques shop. The letters that form the word Antiques and the gold scrollwork around them are affixed to the window, but faded and peeling with age. It is a shop like dozens of others in this part of the city, and the last thing Kurt needs is another mismatched chair saved from some dusty corner, but still he slows and glances through the window on his way by.
I made the first art for Klaine Reverse Bang 2014. I was inspired with a movie “Pacific Rim”, I think this is a perfect Klaine story :) My assigned author for this art had a terrible misfortune, so for now there is no story.

Author’s Note: This was my second time participating in the KLRB and I had such a wonderful time. The artist, tarabottiwrites, was such a pleasure to deal with! I’ve always loved the idea of magic and music having a link so this was a fun story to write for sure. It was also my first attempt to write completely in limited third person. I want to thank my artist, tarabottiwrites, and my wonderful beta, geekinthejeep, for helping me with this story.
It’s been a great pleasure to witness how it was written from the concept to the polished version - thank you, Elfinder, for for such a lovely time spent together on this!
With a Fall
Title: With a Fall
Word Count: ~15,500
Warnings/Kinks: graphic violence, serious injury/death involving an eyeball, barebacking, some angst, closeted!Blaine, homophobia as tradition, if there’s a warning for ASoIaF it applies here
Summary: Kurt, a sellsword, is hired to escort a nobleman and his betrothed back home in the midst of a bloody uprising—if he can get them there without losing them to brigands, politics, or his own troubling heart.
A/N: This story takes place in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones). It includes a few characters from that world, and a great deal of that world’s backstory (it takes place during a historical event mentioned often in that story called Robert’s Rebellion). If you haven’t read or watched Game of Thrones, you can muddle by and sort of understand, but the most enjoyment will be had by those familiar with ASoIaF.
fic: disturbance (kbl reversebang 2014)

Warnings: Panic attacks, nightmares, attempted suicide (implicit overdose), hospitalization, kidnapping, violence.

- the disruption of healthy functioning

A/N: This fic is inspired structurally and, to an extent, content-wise by Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis. It’s not necessary to know the play to read the fic, but if you do know it you’ll notice several references to the text hidden (and not-so-hidden) within. It’s not a 4:48 AU, more an homage to one of my favourite playwrights. It was a real trial to write at times but I’m glad I did.
I tried my best to get the medical stuff in this right. I did a lot of research, but I have no first hand experience and so there may be some inaccuracies.
“Some will call this self-indulgence
(they are lucky not to know its truth)
Some will know the simple fact of pain
This is becoming my normality”
Sarah Kane, 4:48 Psychosis.
Blaine wakes up with his heart racing.
Blaine always wakes up with his heart racing.
The familiar dip in the bed beside him isn’t there.
Kurt isn’t there.
He opens his eyes but it’s just as dark and he frantically looks around for a spot of light to tell him that he isn’t blind.
There’s a thin strip of light forcing its way through the crack underneath the door and Blaine’s heart keeps racing.
If he listens, he thinks he can hear noises outside the room, but it could just as easily be the blood pounding in his ears.
He gets out of bed and his knees almost buckle.
He walks slowly, carefully.
He doesn’t make a sound.
Just in case.
Woven By Water (1/1)
A lone seagull wheels through the dull sky, loud cawing echoing in the silence and mingling with the soft ebb and flow of the constantly shifting waves. Though the houses clustered around the ocean seem like jewels in sunlight, golden and clean and proud, in the gloom they are faded, washed out by the gentle rain that patters against the cobbled streets and the awning stretched out across the café. Tugging at the tight knots her apron ties were forced into, Rachel kicks off her cheerful red flip-flops and sighs heavily. “Hard to feel sunny on a day like this,” she observes, letting the top half of her apron flop down to dangle around her waist. “How are the tips looking?”
Emptying the small jar - fashioned to resemble a tall seashell - onto the counter, Kurt stares at the motley collection of small change and says, “Not great. I guess I’ll have to postpone trying to get out of here for a while longer. Maybe another place is hiring.”
"You could try Puckerman, I hear his token blonde is pregnant and he needs someone else to help him with the boats," Santana says, tugging her hair loose of its bun and clattering the last of the plates into their cupboard, wiping her sleeve across her forehead. "This is torture. I don’t understand why Emma hasn’t given up and let this place close down yet."
