Some Near Misses headcanon

lalalenii on tumblr asked: I'm curious about how Cooper reacted to Sebastian. The dated for a while so it's likely that they met, but I have a feeling he would be weary of Sebastian. And obviously Blaine wouldn't listen to him because /he can't just be happy for him/ and Blaine’s parents? I know that’s hard because we don’t even know how hey feel about canon!Kurt but since Seb hung out at Blaine’s house they must have accepted him?

The answer inside...Collapse )

Fic: Semester's End 2/2

Part one.

Semester's End 2/2Collapse )

Fic: Glee: Semester's End (Kurt/Blaine, Explicit) - A Near Misses Fic 1/2

So, the next big fic in the Near Misses 'verse is set right now during this summer - I still can't believe we're caught up to NM canon, but time marches ever onwards - and this fic originally was going to be the prologue to it, sort of setting up emotionally where the boys are at the beginning of it. However, it's a big enough moment that it took rather a lot of words for me to write it, so it's a stand-alone instead. :)

Huge thanks to Liz and Stoney for reading for me and leaving me helpful notes, as always. I couldn't do this without them.

The story so far:
- "Near Misses" - Kurt and Blaine might not have met on a staircase in high school. This is what could happen if they met in college instead. (A story of who Kurt and Blaine might have become without having had each other.) - 200,000 words, NC-17, goes AU from canon after 2x06, some spoilers through 3x22 - [on the AO3]
- "Facebook Official" - Kurt wakes up the second time on Sunday morning. - 3000 words, PG, set just after the main story - [on the AO3]
- "Twenty-three Firsts" - Friends, places, and conversations: twenty-three firsts for Kurt and Blaine. - 58,000 words, NC-17, set just after the main story/Facebook Official - [on the AO3]
- "King of the Warblers" - A Dalton-era Warbler party from Sebastian’s point-of-view. - 4200 words, PG-13, Blaine/Sebastian backstory set during their first few months of dating at Dalton - warnings for underage drinking, coercive but consensual sexual situations, and Sebastian being a jerk - [on the AO3]
- "Brigadoon: A Near Misses Interlude" - Kurt’s opening night in Brigadoon. A few hours in the Near Misses ‘verse. - 11,000 words, PG - [on the AO3]

Fic: Glee: Brigadoon: A Near Misses Interlude (Kurt/Blaine, PG) 1/2

The next big Near Misses fic, currently in progress, takes place over the summer after the fic-current year, and this little fic kind of sets the scene a bit. I fought writing it for a variety of reasons, but I couldn't get it out of my head. Someday I'll just listen to myself and stop fighting.

Thanks, as ever, to stoney321, who has put up with endless whining from me for months and months about writing this fic. It is dedicated to bethynyc, who was so enthusiastic about Kurt being cast in Brigadoon. :)

Some Near Misses and Writing Meta

I've been talking a bit of Near Misses meta over on tumblr.

I'm putting it here beneath the cut for my LJ readers and my own desire for organization:

Some NM metaCollapse )


And then a few weeks ago tchrgleek very kindly said something about me being able to teach people how to write, and I responded with a bit about my process:

Near Misses for Charity

Right now, Near Misses is available in paperback form in the 3rd Annual Charity Giveaway for The Box Scene Project. There are also a bunch of other Glee fics available, plus art and other items including things signed by celebrities in quite a number of fandoms, all donated to raise money for charity.

I've donated money through them before to buy Glee scripts for charity but haven't done anything like this before, so I kind of don't know what to expect, but if you're interested in having a copy of Near Misses or other favorite Glee fanfic on your shelf here's an opportunity. :)

Fic: Glee: King of the Warblers (Blaine/Sebastian, PG-13) - A Near Misses Story

Wow, I think this is the first Glee fic I’ve written in which there is no Kurt/Blaine, though it’s backstory for Near Misses, which is obviously Kurt/Blaine, so I suppose in a way it still counts.

People have been talking to - and yelling at - me about Sebastian and his Dalton-era relationship with Blaine in the Near Misses ‘verse since the main fic was being posted, and I’ve finally written up a touch of my headcanon of their relationship before Sebastian’s jealousy of (and feelings for) Blaine turned more bitter. Sebastian is a jerk, yes, and happy to manipulate Blaine’s issues for his own benefit, but he’s also a really unreliable narrator. Read between the lines. :)

Thank you to stoney321 for listening to me talk about Sebastian in person and for reading this fic for me this week even though I think we both want to shower after being in his POV.
