Fic summary: An unlikely friendship forms. Dave learns to love himself, Blaine learns to trust love, and Kurt learns that love is both simpler and a lot more complicated than he expected. AU from 3.05 with canon elements.
Chapter summary: Dave and Burt have a talk. ~2,800 words
Notes: This will likely be the only chapter I’ll be posting this week as I have spontaneously decided to take a mini-vacay with my partner. I should be back to the semi-regular schedule next week.
Rating: PG this chapter

Chapter 16: Amends

On an overcast Saturday afternoon in early April, Dave drives his father's car to Hummel Tires & Lube and asks for an oil change.

The guy who waves him into the garage is not Burt Hummel. Neither is the guy who's working on a tiny Volkswagon on the next lift over. But when Dave steps out of the car and hands his keys over, he spots Mr. Hummel standing in the doorway of the front office, studying a stack of papers in one hand and scratching under the bill of his cap with the other.

It's the first time Dave has seen him in person since making his insufficient apology in Principal Figgins' office a year ago. But he couldn't have forgotten what he looked like, even if it hadn't been for all the campaign ads and interviews and photos that, for a while, popped up on Dave's homepage a dozen times a day along with the oft-repeated phrase The arts were my son's refuge.

Burt Hummel never specified who Kurt needed refuge from. Dave didn’t need him to. He already knew.

Summary: Kurt makes a new friend (kind of), Blaine is acting weird, and Dave just wants everyone to be happy.
Chapter notes: This chapter and the next parallel 3.17 “Dance With Somebody,” but you don’t have to have seen the episode to follow what’s going on here. (Needless to say, this is an AU and events pan out differently.) Title of this chapter is a Joseph Campbell quote from a bumper sticker displayed at Between the Sheets in 3.17. All the songs mentioned in this and the next chapter are on this YouTube playlist in order of their appearance.
Housekeeping: I’ve been having some health issues lately. I hope not to have as big a posting gap in the future and still want to finish posting before the end of hiatus if for no other reason than my own sanity. However, I can’t guarantee my good health; stuff happens.
Warnings: sensory descriptions of eating, sp0ilers for Yentl if you watch the playlist
Rating for this chapter: NC-17
Pairings this chapter: Kurt/Blaine, Dave/Kurt crush, Chandler/flirting

Chapter 17: Love Is a Friendship Set to Music

As soon as Mr. Schue declares Whitney week, Kurt knows exactly what song he wants to sing – until a different Whitney song pops into his head and that becomes the perfect one. By the time rehearsal is over, Kurt has a shortlist of more than a dozen Whitney Houston songs, all of which are absolutely sublime.
