Title: To Be Myself
Author: wowbright (username on tumblr, lj, ao3 and dreamwidth)
Beta: A zillion thanks to corinna (ao3)/chiasmuslovesme (tumblr) for helping me find the fic's voice and finish it!
Artist: hopelesslydevotedgleek (tumblr) made amazing art for this. Look! Look! Isn't it beautiful? She made art for my story I'm still swooning.
Additional thanks: To everyone who responded to weird random questions I posted to tumblr and encouraged me in the writing of this fic.
Word count: ~48,000
Rating: PG-13
Summary: What if Kurt had been born 25 years earlier? A story about Gen X Kurt Hummel learning about love and, most importantly, learning to be himself, 1976-1985.
Pairings (most unrequited in one direction or another, in order of appearance): Kurt/Rachel, Kurt/OC, Kurt/Finn, Kurt/Mercedes, Kurt/Dave, Kurt/Blaine
Some other characters include: Burt Hummel, Sandy Ryerson, LeRoy Berry, Hiram Berry (but with a different last name), Noah Puckerman, Santana Lopez, Will Schuester
Warnings: This story reflects the era in which it takes place; homophobia, racism, sexism, AIDS-phobia, sex negativity and tolerance of bullying and other bad things are par for the course. Off-page death of Kurt's mother; Sandy Ryerson is just as awful in this fic as he is in the show. Please contact the author if you have specific questions about triggers or pairings.
Author's notes: Wondering about the towels in Rachel's bathroom or what Kurt's alarm clock looked like? Want to see the cover of that Newsweek Kurt reads in 1983? I have a lot of extra headcanon and many historical notes and photos for this fic. I've posted some of them already on tumblr and will be posting more. You can find them under my 2014 khbb fic headcanon tag.

Title: Slow Dissolve
Characters/Fandom: Kurt, Blaine, Rachel, Finn, Santana, Brittany, Burt, Carole (in canon pairings)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~5,000
Spoilers: 4.01, “The New Rachel”
Warnings: possible physical and/or mental health issues, dieting, helplessness
Summary: Kurt changes the summer after he graduates. No one fully understands what it means – not even Kurt.
A/N: The entire fic takes place before Season 4 begins, but it’s essentially a reaction fic to the first episode of Season 4 and how I saw Kurt and his relationships portrayed in it. Title from the song “Slow Motion” by David Gray. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lavender_love00 and [livejournal.com profile] punkkitten2113 for being great betas!

Also on here on tumblr.

Extended author's note/warning: This narrative isn’t what I would consider an angst genre piece. But it’s not a satisfying narrative in which everything gets tied up neatly at the end. I don’t recommend reading this if you have been looking for the meaning of life and are frustrated that you haven’t found it yet, or if you have untreated clinical depression, or if you have a disposition toward hopelessness. I’m being completely sincere here. I’ve read things that lack resolution when I’ve been in those mental states, and I’ve regretted it every time. Come back when you’re in a different space.


If he was so invisible to the world, when would he disappear completely? )

Thanks for keeping your comments spoiler-free! 

Pairings: Kurt/Blaine, Rachel/Finn (but the story is gen)
Rating: PG
Spoilers: 3.22 "Goodbye" and "Rachel's Yearbook Message to Kurt Scene"
Word Count: 7,448
Summary: The more Kurt thinks about Rachel's yearbook message, the more he doesn't know what to make of it. Finn does, though. (Reaction fic to "Goodbye" and "Rachel's Yearbook Message to Kurt Scene".)

Author’s Notes: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] punkkitten2113 and [livejournal.com profile] lavender_love00 for betaing and being thinky with me. Any errors are mine. Also, I don’t own Glee, and I don’t make any money writing this stuff.

When she hugs him, it's like she lets go of everything else. )Also here on tumblr. I love comments, but please don't mention any spoilers in them. I stay away from those as much as possible. Thanks!

Okay, so was it in Nationals where Rachel said that she and Finn were getting married in a church with a rabbi as officiant?

I can't imagine a rabbi agreeing to officiate a wedding without doing premarital counseling first. So, I want to see what goes on in those sessions, and why the rabbi agrees to do the wedding. (Even better, the rabbi doesn't, and they have to find another officiant.)

AU variation: It's an AU where Puck is 10-20 years older. And he's the rabbi. ([livejournal.com profile] mimiheart has given me many convincing reasons why Puck would make an awesome youth rabbi; maybe he's a youth rabbi in this AU and gets stuck with the teen weddings.)

Title: Tell Me Who's Watching
Rating: NC-17
Characters: Kurt/Blaine, Finn
Spoilers: none
Word Count: 1,631
Warnings: sex, passing mention of vomiting
Disclaimer: I don't own Glee, and I don't make any money writing this stuff. Title from "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell.
Summary: Written for this prompt from [livejournal.com profile] mander3_swish: Kurt & Blaine caught in the act. Hilarious and hot if so inclined. I've been on a voyeur!finn kick lately (as he tends to accidentally find them in 'compromising' situations...and has a deer in headlights thing going on). But it could be anyone who gets the free show.
Notes: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lavender_love00 for betaing. Also here on Tumblr.

It’s nice having such a domestic, predictable brother. )
