Prompts, please  
I need to get my head out of my ass and write some fluffy drabble ficlets. (Someone just told me that drabble is supposed to be exactly 100 words, and all this time I just thought it meant "shortish fic without a plot.") Would anyone like to prompt? Must be Kurt/Blaine, Kurt or Blaine. Must be something that I can keep short since I have too much Real Work to do.

But I also feel compelled to say that I give no guarantees.

Because I'm kind of in a wishy-washy mood.

(Because aforementioned Real Work is not making me happy today.)

[Update: In order to force myself to keep these short, I am posting these as replies to the prompter in the comments section below. I am trying to keep these PG and PG-13, but if I get wild, I will post the rating at the top of the reply. If you think anything is improperly rated, please let me know. Also, FYI, I am doing these as freewriting exercises with no edits and spending less than an hour on each. Unless I am compelled to do research on, you know, ancient Hebrew love poems or something pretty much anything, or get distracted, or start to think too much, or get caught up in some scene and realize when an hour is up that I haven't even gotten to the prompt part yet. Then maybe I'll give myself a little slack.]

[Update 2: I plan to get to all of these eventually; feel free to continue prompting. I will close comments if it gets too much. I will try to get to them in the order of request, but if I get stuck on one I may move on to the next and go back later. This does not mean I have abandoned you! If there is something in a prompt that squicks me and I just can't do it, I'll let you know so you can prompt another. Oh, and keep in mind that I am writing these between other things, when I don't have a big enough block of time to work on larger projects or when I get stuck on the larger projects. Usually, when I have the blocks of time, the larger projects will take precedence.]


[Update 3 - Dec. 13: I posted an NC-17 drabble. All NC-17 and R drabbles are and will be appropriately labeled so you can easily skip them if you wish.]

hmmm... first new year's eve together? NYE party with warblers or new directions?

Here you go - New Year's, Anew: Part 1
OMG, this ended up thinky thinky - probably not what you had in mind, but hey, it's not what I had in mind, either (a little anget before the fluff, sorry)! It's a freewrite so I'm just gonna give it to you! (It won't all fit in one comment box, so I'm splitting it into two.)

A kiss at midnight bodes a good year to come.

Kurt's mother used to tell him this when he'd stay up late with his parents on New Year's Eve. Sometimes Aunt Mildred was there, and she'd bring two or three bottles of champagne and polish at least one off by herself, and then she'd sleep it off in the guestroom and make everyone French toast the next morning. Sometimes, there'd be another family from in town over - a couple times it was Rachel and her dads. And sometimes it was just the three Hummels, watching movies and playing board games until the ball dropped at Times Square.

Whatever the arrangement, midnight was always the same. Kurt's parents would kiss, and then Kurt's mom would lean over and kiss Kurt on the cheek and say, "Happy New Year to the most beautiful boy who ever lived!" and then he would kiss her on the cheek. Then Kurt would move toward his dad, who was invariably sitting on the floor, lift his hat back and kiss his bald spot. If there was anyone else there, Kurt would kiss them, too: Aunt Mildred thought it was most charming when he kissed her on the back of the hand; Rachel's dads accepted pecks on the cheek; Rachel insisted on faire la bise.

Kurt liked it when there were people over on New Year's, because he figured the more people he kissed, the better his year would be.

Then his mother died, and Kurt and his dad started to go to sleep early on New Year's, because it was just easier not to think about the year ahead, about trudging through another 365 days without her.

Blaine reads Kurt a love poem.
wowbright on December 9th, 2011 05:17 am (UTC)
Blaine reads a very old love poem to Kurt
"'Oh, that he would kiss me with the kisses of his mouth!'" Blaine has pulled his desk chair to the edge of the bed, the book open in his lap.

"Okay, that's a promising start," Kurt says. He's sprawled on his stomach across Blaine's bed, examining his fingernails. "But a little redundant. I mean, what else would he kiss with? Do you think it's that clumsy in the original Hebrew?"

"'For your love is better than wine – '"

"Which is saying something, if they like wine as much as you do." Kurt didn't mean that as a jab, but he wonders if it was, so he reaches his hand out and squeezes Blaine's thigh apologetically.

"'Your anointing oils are fragrant – '"

"My what?"

"I think it's like cologne?"

"Oh."

"'Draw me after you, let us make haste. The king has brought me into his chambers.'"

"Now it's getting good."

"'We will exult and rejoice in you; we will extol your love more than wine.'"

"Wait. Is this a three-way?"

"I don't know. We never talked about this part of the Bible in Sunday School." Blaine looks down at the page, his brows furrowed. "Okay, and now it gets more confusing. 'Rightly do they love you.' Who's they?"

"Maybe it's a four-way. Or a whole panoply of lovers."

"'I am very dark, but comely – '"

"I don't like the word 'comely.' It sounds like 'homely,' but it means the opposite thing."

Blaine looks up and smiles. That impish, up-to-no-good grin that makes Kurt's stomach coil in delight. "But it has the word 'come' in it," Blaine says. "So it should be easy to remember that it means 'beautiful.'" Blaine closes the book and puts it on the desk behind him.

"And why should I associate the word 'come' with beauty?" Kurt says, running one finger down Blaine's thigh.

Blaine slides onto the bed next to Kurt, "Because" kiss "you" kiss "are" kiss "so" kiss "beautiful" kiss "when" kiss "you" kiss "come."

Kurt turns his face slightly away, and Blaine understands. He touches his lips to Kurt's earlobe and thrills at Kurt's shudder.

"Only when I come?" Kurt whispers, and the teasing in his voice undoes Blaine, makes him wild and desperate with love. "You don't think I'm always beautiful?"

"You are," Blaine says, tugging at Kurt's shirt buttons while continuing to nip at his ear. "You are always" suck "always" lick "always" nibble "beautiful." Blaine drags his tongue down Kurt's neck, eliciting the moan he loves. "When you come, you're resplendent."

--------------
[Author's Note: Blaine is reading from The Song of Solomon, Chapter 1, Revised Standard Version of the Bible. Why? I don't know, except that I used to read and giggle over it with my friends when I was their age. I suppose they could be reading Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon for school or leisure, and want to see if it has anything in common with the biblical poem.

Also, I kind of wanted to keep going, but I have to go to bed. And I promised to keep these short!]

Future!fic: Blaine and Kurt go grocery shopping for their first Thanksgiving as for realzies adults.

A shiny two dollar bill for you if you have Blaine get into it--just a little bit because he IS Blaine, after all, and courteous is his default setting--with someone over the last can of jellied cranberry sauce (the kind that you slice and maintains the ridges from the can--THE WAY GOD INTENDED) because it is his very favorite thing and the one thing he insists on having against all of Kurt's protestations.

PG-13/R: ___ Times Kurt Gets Cockblocked by Blaine's Finals (and ___ Time(s) He Doesn't?)
Hello Verdandil,

I love the idea of doing this as a five times fic, but we'll see. I have two times for you now. It's a future fic, but I guess that'll be kind of obvious in the first sentence.

It's PG-13 for language and PG-13 or R for sexuality because, hello, this is a story about being cockblocked.

1.

Finishing school a year ahead of Blaine college a year ahead of Blaine isn’t as bad as finishing high school a year ahead of Blaine was. For one, they both live in the same place, and they sleep every night next to each other, instead of 532 miles apart. Yeah, sometimes Kurt has to nudge Blaine awake after he’s fallen asleep on the couch with a book in hand, or at the kitchen table with his face slumped dangerously close to his laptop’s keyboard. But Blaine always makes it to the bedroom eventually, and it’s nice to know that he’s there, and to feel his warmth radiating under the covers.

Kurt actually refers to Blaine as his “own personal radiator,” and complains when Blaine stays up later than him, because Kurt’s feet get so cold when he’s alone under the blankets, which keeps him from falling asleep. Kurt’s taken to throwing a heat pack in the microwave before he brushes his teeth on the nights that Blaine’s studying too hard, and throws it under the blankets when he tucks his lonely self into bed.

He doesn’t always fall asleep, though, and may get up after a while to lure Blaine to bed with his bedroom eyes or, if Blaine’s really tired, promises of a chaste neck rub and warm snuggle.

And sometimes Kurt falls asleep, then wakes briefly when Blaine finally comes in, leaning his face into Blaine’s neck and inhaling. The familiar scent lulls him back to sleep, except when it doesn’t. And that’s nice, too. Usually.

Except when it isn’t. Like tonight.

Because tonight, when Blaine slips under the covers wearing nothing but his skivvies – even though it’s freaking December, for crying out loud – Kurt jolts wide awake. He can smell Blaine, and maybe it should be gross because Blaine has been so busy cramming for finals that he hasn’t showered since yesterday – or was it two nights ago? – but it’s winter, so it’s not, really. The smell of shampoo and skin lotion have faded, and what’s left in their place is skin, and cinnamon toothpaste mingled with warmth and breath, and there’s a faint whiff of Old Spice. The last of which Kurt never thought of as particularly sexy until he met Blaine, and then – well, yeah.

Blaine is lying on his stomach, and he reflexively touches Kurt’s hand, like he does every night, and Kurt turns toward him, fitting his body along the side of Blaine’s torso and his muscular leg, and even though Kurt is wearing pajamas, it’s like he can feel the skin right through them. Prickles of awakening dance along Kurt’s own skin, and he wants all of Blaine, now.

He leans his face into Blaine’s neck and kisses there, but the moan it arouses is blurry and faded and fuck. Is Blaine seriously asleep already?

Kurt brushes his hand down Blaine’s back and hears a satisfied breath, heavy and open-mouthed, and he hears how slow and regular Blaine’s breathing has become already, and hears Blaine’s tongue click against the roof of his mouth in the weird way it does when he sleeps and –

It is going to be a long, long night.

Adorable!sleepy!Kurt
I saw this http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lujla89L141qjh31ro2_500.jpg (picture from here http://keep-frozen.tumblr.com/tagged/fanart) and now I want Kurt beeing adorably sleepy, maybe before finals in college? Stumbling around the apartment/room he shares with Blaine barely awake, in a too big flannel shirt he took from Finn or his dad and secretly brought with him, and trying to study just a little more? And amused Blaine? Or something:)

Just, anything with adorably sleepy Kurt please:)

Are you still accepting prompts? I'm going to assume you are since this is still linked from your master post. (No pressure if not.) Also, I hope this is Kurt/Blaine enough, since you said prompts have to be Kurt/Blaine. It's mostly Kurt/Blaine. Also also, apparently NC17 is allowed now, so I'm gonna go with that.

Pre-Michael. Blaine actually finds Sebastian really really hot, especially the shameless flirting and forwardness. Sebastian says really dirty things to him about how he could do Blaine so much harder than Kurt could, and really make him feel it the next day. Blaine rushes over to Kurt's house to pounce on him and ravish him and begs Kurt for all the things Sebastian has promised. It turns out Kurt can do hard and fast and aggressive too. Win!
wowbright on March 2nd, 2012 01:51 am (UTC)
That is awesome! And honestly, as soon as I started reading this, I was hoping that Sebastian would make a live appearance in the coitus, but I can just write this as if that's what's going to happen *next* time around :)

Just FYI, I count non-monogamy/poly as Klaine as long as Klaine is in there and it's consensual. Because that's how I roll.
