Title: Palpation
Author: [ profile] rockinhamburger
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: Roughly 10,500.
Warnings: AU from mid-S1 and on.
Summary: Kurt Hummel was not meant for community college. Blaine Anderson was the undeniable silver lining.
Author's Note: My offering for the [ profile] klainebigbang. The date has arrived, so it's time to unleash this little monster!

I'd like to thank and give credit to my truly amazing beta-reader, [ profile] caroline_shea. Thank you for the editing work, darling, and for convincing me that this wasn't terrible!

I would also like to bring your attention to the artist I was paired with for this very awesome challenge, [ profile] xxxmirai. The work you created for this story is so lovely; please check it out and leave her feedback.

And if you're about to read this, thank you as well!

+ I have successfully stayed away from Glee spoilers for a whole week! I haven’t even watched the promo clip from tomorrow’s episode, and there’s Kurt twirling what looks like celery in the gifs I’ve inevitably run across. So, that’s a pretty bit feat for me! But it’s just that I want this episode (which has already been massively spoiled for me after the Nicole Crowther incident) to be as fresh as possible in reward for a fucking long, difficult, exhausting semester.

+ [ profile] caroline_shea, the mastermind behind Gaily We Promenade, read over what I’ve written for my bigbang and said things that made me not hate my writing with a fiery passion. This is good news, as it means I can stop feeling insecure for a while and write productively because someone believes I’m good at this writing thing. I don’t always have confidence in that, and it’s nice to be appreciated.


xoxo, Caroline!!!

+ I’ve had this discussion with a friend of mine about how Darren Criss is literally the perfect man, and how it’s necessary to believe there must be something wrong with him or life just isn’t fair because seriously what are the chances there’s another Darren out there for us to love (and to love us) in real time?

Which is why I’ve convinced myself Darren must have at least one major shortcoming. What that shortcoming is I have yet to discover, BUT IT HAS TO EXIST.

Because anything else is patently unfair.


+ Lady Gaga’s Edge of Glory is fuckin’ stellar. The saxophone solo (and the little saxophone ending) makes my ears orgasm. Hnnnnnng.

I cannot wait for her fucking album to drop, fuck.

I am BLOWN AWAY by the awesome feedback on Beside You! I can't even -- seriously, thank you all so much!! Individual replies to your comments are definitely coming; I just need to find the time to sit down and do it, probably later this week. But I'm ecstatic and heartened and really freaking amazed with the positive response!! It means SO MUCH after all this work!

Title: Beside You
Author: [ profile] rockinhamburger
Rating: NC-17.
Word Count: 23,000.
Type: High school AU. Romance and humour.
Summary: Adam's just a few short months away from graduating when he gets paired up with Kris for a science project. Adam's the star quarterback of the football team, Kris is a quiet, shy musician in the school orchestra. They really don't know each other very well, but their assignment allows for them to remedy that. Adam's at a crucial juncture in his life; he's struggling and coming to terms with his sexuality, his plans after high school, and his developing romantic feelings for Kris. Basically, high school sucks!
Disclaimer: I definitely do not own these people; they own themselves. Every word of this is most untrue.
Warnings: Underage sex.
Notes: Ohhhhmygod! After months and months of freaks outs, lots of rewriting, and occasional hatred of this story, I can finally post it and see what y’all think. I’m happy with it; hopefully you will be too. I must say thank you to the wonderful [ profile] fobobsessed54, my awesomesauce beta who held my hand throughout the writing of this. Thanks a million, bb! A big thanks, as well, to the lovely [ profile] sparkysparky, who created the fantastic art that you can find through the link below. Apart from being incredibly gorgeous and happy-inducing, this also happens to be the only piece of art anyone has based off of my writing, and I am so happy with it! Thank you, hon! Such amazing work!

And finally, thank YOU, in advance, for reading this monster! Really hope you enjoy it.

The title of this fic and sample lyric below are taken from the song Beside You by Marianas Trench.


When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while...

Wonderful news!!

My Kradam bigbang is finished.

I only have about 22,000 words at the moment, but, as [ profile] pensnest so wisely informed me a few weeks ago, as I edit and work with the fic over the next several weeks, more words will come.

But it still feels really good to have actually completed this challenge. And I cannot wait to read the wonderful fics that will surely come out of the Kradam Bigbang (53 submissions, last I heard!!!)


-Just had an amazing 10-hour sleep; I feel soooo rested! And now I'm gotta make something to eat 'cause I'm pretty fuckin' hungry!

-William Zinsser

19,913 words.

Fuck. Yes.

I'm officially at the 15,000 word mark for my bigbang.

I've given this fic as much foreplay as I can, and now I'm gonna grab this fic by the balls and coax it into submission. I'm gonna whisper sweet nothings in its ear and stroke its belly afterward. I'm gonna light a smoke and bask in the afterglow.

And I am TOTALLY gonna make the fucking deadline; SO THERE, stupid-ass muse!

*happy sigh*

But don't quote me on that.
rockinhamburger: (Cheeeeeks!)
+Got another 500 words written for my Kris/Katy/Adam fic. It actually has some basic plot now, though not a very good one. It's probably a fairly common storyline, too, but I'm enjoying writing it all the same. I don't know when that'll be finished, but I'm hoping it'll be soon so I share some more fic with y'all; it's been a while since I offered any up. Sorry about that!

+I also wrote 1000 more words on my bigbang, and most of that was important plotty stuff, so I'm feeling okay about it. I'm just a little worried I'm coming to the end too quickly; I still need to write 9000 words in order to meet the Glambert minimum.


It'll be fine.

*fidgets some more*

+So, currently I'm somewhat out of the loop in the AI fandom (totes my fault), and I've been trying to keep up with the various rec lists on lj, but there's never enough! I have to scour most of the time.

Without a doubt, [ profile] astolat's recent addition to the kinkmeme is seriously my FAVOURITE THING EVER! So much looooooove!

Aaaaanyway, hit me up, babes! What are some good reads you've discovered lately? :D

+You should absolutely check out Cheeks' new video, if you haven't already. It co-stars Michael Buckley from the WhattheBuck!? show on YouTube, and it is sooooo aDORable!

Also, Cheeks tweeted that the videos he filmed with Neil will be coming in segments this month. Can't WAIT!

+Mmm, coffee!

You may already be aware that I'm in the throes of writing my bigbang fic for the Kradam and Glambert challenges. The Kradam minimum is 10,000 words while the Glambert minimum is 20,000.

Status update on my AI bigbang fic as of today:

10,000 words down! Surpassed the Kradam minimum! Which means I have just 10,000 more words to go 'til I reach the Glambert minimum word count! So, yeah. Not remotely finished yet, but that's okay; inspiration has finally hit me, and the writing's coming along much better these days.

In case you're wondering, I'm writing a Kris/Adam high school AU. I don't know whether that excites or horrifies you (or both), but it's certainly how I feel about writing it! So, so scary.

But hitting the 10,000-word mark is encouraging and such a relief!
