Media: Fic
Title: Everything In Its Place
Artist: heartsasmagnets 
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1100
Summary: Domestic!Klaine - Kurt and Blaine move into their first home together. Blaine is a sweaty boy.
Spoilers: None
Notes: I have not been able to write in a really long time. Just no inspiration or drive. A few days ago I was hit with the need for more domestic fic and started something but didn't make it too far. Then videos from Glee Live! in Vegas leaked and that was the jolt of inspiration needed to finish.
 

 

As the self-declared 'appropriate location of everything' manager, Kurt watches silently as the movers settle a brand new, sleek black leather couch against the accent wall - its designated location - on the hardwood floor in the bright, open living room of their brand new condo. He's awestruck and plagued by this inexplicably surreal feeling.

He's only vaguely aware of Blaine entering the room and setting down a rather heavy box (judging by the thump it makes) at his feet. He's too enthralled by the way the thin, sheer white curtains are blowing in the breeze coming off the balcony for it to really register.  Kurt presses his hand to his chest, still attempting to comprehend how all of this is suddenly theirs.  Given his daze, he should be startled when Blaine's arms snake around his waist, but he's so used to Blaine by now that it feels liking fitting a key into a lock. Completely natural. Exactly how they were made to be.

New York City had been good to them financially. Kurt starring in shows and Blaine writing music. After ten long – but wonderful years of being together but living separately (though rarely spending nights alone) – they'd finally amassed enough money to afford the place they'd been dreaming of for years.  A gorgeous condo with a killer view.

"Yes," Blaine whispers, answering the question Kurt hasn't even asked aloud. Clearly, it's written all over his face.  Blaine's lips brush against the soft skin at Kurt's neck and he sighs softly – happily – as Kurt's hands cover those around his waist.

"You know that's not where that box goes."

"How do you know?" Blaine chuckles. "You haven't seen what's written on it."

"It's the last bedroom box. I've been counting," Kurt smiles, still looking out at the balcony – not at Blaine – further prolonging this coy game. "And that," he says, referring to the repetitive clomping of work boots on the three flight walk-up. "--- that is my crystal wine glass set; the last of the boxes. The one that I made him personally keep an eye on in the cab of the truck."

Kurt turns around in the circle of Blaine's arms and catches his eye.  "Now, take that box to the bedroom while I deal with him. I'll meet you there."

He presses a quick peck to Blaine's lips and swats his ass playfully just as the mover arrives with the crystal wine glasses, as predicted, and a clipboard.  He signs 'Kurt Anderson-Hummel' on the dotted line at the bottom of the invoice and slides two twenties under the clip before trading the clipboard for the box.  "Thanks again," Kurt says as the mover shuts the door behind himself.

Depositing the crystal set carefully on the counter, Kurt makes his way back to the bedroom – their bedroom – to find Blaine sprawled out across the bed. Despite the fact that they'd paid to have professional movers, Blaine had insisted on helping. He was apparently now cooling off under the ceiling fan. Kurt scoffed, flopping down on the unmade bed next to him.

"We paid people so you wouldn't be a sweaty, exhausted mess after this move, Blaine."

"No. We paid people so you wouldn't be a sweaty, exhausted mess. I don't mind being one."

"And because I'm completely selfish and want you to smell good when we have sex for the first time in our own home," Kurt adds, slinking across and straddling Blaine.

"Sweat happens, Kurt. If you didn't like it, you shouldn't have put a ring on it," Blaine replies, barely able to keep a straight face as he holds up his hand to flaunt the platinum ring in Kurt's face.

Kurt grins with delight as memories of their wedding last week float through his mind. The kiss. The dance. The sight of Blaine in his incredible tuxedo. Most of all, declaring to his closest friends and family that he and Blaine Anderson (now Anderson-Hummel) would be together forever. They'd been extremely lucky to get the condo move-in date lined up for merely one day after arriving back from their honeymoon.

"Oh, trust me. I like it," Kurt nods, holding back an even wider grin. "I definitely, definitely like it," he whispers against Blaine's lips, simultaneously rocking his hips against Blaine and kissing him roughly.

Blaine's hands automatically find Kurt's hips again. A muffled moan comes from his throat just before Kurt pulls back and rolls off him and back onto the bed.

"I just don't like it smelly. Now get your ass in the shower or I won't help get you sweaty all over again."

Blaine let out a loud, hearty laugh before crawling over Kurt and planting both feet on the ground. "As if you have the willpower."

Kurt glares at Blaine, but gladly kisses him one last time before he disappears into the shower. He lies there staring up at the ceiling fan and thinking about how much he loves Blaine. How great their dynamic is even after ten years together. How they've grown so in sync with one another, yet they still keep each other on their toes. It's not stale or boring or commonplace.

As Kurt inspects his own platinum band, he realizes that finding someone so completely perfect and compatible and wonderful is the greatest thing anyone could ever ask for in life. And he has it.

When he hears the shower turn off, he gets up, shuffles into the living room, opens the crystal box, takes out two glasses and uncorks the wine that he purchased especially for this on the way over.

Blaine emerges from the bathroom in just his boxers and Kurt is instantly turned on again. Kurt hands him a glass and they clink them together.

"To us," Blaine toasts and takes a sip. Then he takes Kurt in his arms and kisses him in a way Kurt can't remember being kissed before. A new mix of wanting and having and loving. "I'm clean now, so come on," Blaine replies, grabbing Kurt's hand and tugging him toward the bedroom again. "I believe I was promised amazing, sweat-inducing sex."

Maybe Blaine is right. He doesn't have the willpower to say no to his husband. As today's self-declared 'appropriate location of everything' manager, Kurt makes one final decree. Blaine belongs at his side (or possibly beneath him when the moment is right) for the rest of their lives.

This is sooo cute. I heart it.

"Sweat happens, Kurt. If you didn't like it, you shouldn't have put a ring on it," Blaine replies, barely able to keep a straight face as he holds up his hand to flaunt the platinum ring in Kurt's face.

LOL I could see Blaine saying this.

"How they've grown so in sync with one another, yet they still keep each other on their toes. It's not stale or boring or commonplace."

I loved how you've compressed the entire history of what matters most into this sentence. Yes, you've done all the obligatory "background work" for a future fic. And just how believable that is makes me like this fic all that much more--no fantasy rise to stardom, no immediate gratification: it's clear they've had to work for it, and that, true to form, they both are willing to do that.

But where you really shine, is the way that you've kept all those details as exactly that--background. What you're really conveying is all the things they've done with and for each other. Those things that makes this move actually important. It's domestic in the most subdued sense, to me. It's about establishing a home that's already been built. It's about fitting all the emotional details into their already assigned place, because you know exactly where they need to be. Because setting up this physical apartment is nothing compared to the domestic order already established through years of knowing and loving the same person. And it's love, isn't it, that keeps the desire there not as an obligation but as a renewed longing, even when you have it--something these two are showing to america weekly, already.

welcome back!

OMG YOU WROTE GORGEOUS FUTURE FIC. Day has been made! Agggh, this whole thing is just so beautiful....

The entire "sweat happens/shouldn't have put a ring on it/get your ass in the shower" exchange was *perfect* and SO them. Just totally amazing.

"He lies there staring up at the ceiling fan and thinking about how much he loves Blaine. How great their dynamic is even after ten years together."

(Jo, my darling! There's no way you could have known this, so clearly you're just awesomely psychic, but Mike and I are celebrating our ten-year anniversary next month. We started dating when I was 16 and he was 17, and we've never been apart since. I think it's one of the reasons I've always felt so drawn to K/B - they're one of the veeeeeery few high school couples I could see beating the odds. I'm waxing all nostalgic this week and you have unintentionally given me THE BESTEST ANNIVERSARY GIFT EVAH! In fact I'm going to read this fic to Mike tonight when he gets home; I know he'll love it, too! <333)
