Lying & Falling In Love: An Experiment {Masterpost}  
Title: Lying & Falling In Love: An Experiment
Word Count: 21,500
Rating: R for discussion of sexual situations
Pairing: Klaine (also alleged Blaine/various)
Summary: The rumor-filled, totally false account of how I ruined my flawless reputation. When a false rumor spreads around Dalton and Crawford about Blaine losing his virginity to a guy from Westerville Community College, Blaine Anderson tries to let it roll off his back, but when his friends start coming to him for popularity makeovers and Kurt Hummel transfers to Dalton, he gets a bit in over his head. (S2 AU, Easy A inspired, Blaine-centric)
Disclaimer: Nothing, nothing, I own nothing. Everyone will be returned unharmed. (Except maybe Thad. So sorry in advance, Thad.)
Warnings: Non-con kissing/propositioning along the lines of the movie and previous Glee eps
Beta: ccmskatechick
Author Notes: Written as part of the gleeatthemovies Big Bang. Go check out the rest of the fics as they’re posted!! :) Also thanks to wordplay, regala_electra & aelora for their eyes at various points throughout, and to everyone who cheered me on to finish this. I’ve been working on it off and on since last summer, and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I don’t think I’ve worked so much on anything fandom related ever, so I hope you all enjoy! Thanks to the wonderful blueb1rd who stepped in at the last minute and gave me fabulous art for this fic! (PS: The working title for this was ‘The One Where Blaine Anderson Pretends To Be A Slut.’)

the rumor-filled, totally false account of how I ruined my flawless reputation.

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3 // AO3

Alright, I miiiight have gone a bit overboard with extras for this fic, but no regrets! Firstly, thank you so much to blueb1rd for creating my LOVELY movie poster, on such short notice at that :)

Secondly, I put together a PDF of the fic – two, one with cover art and one without. I have a first gen iPad, and that’s all I tested it on. It looks nice on mine, if it doesn’t on yours, my apologies :) You can download other formats at AO3.

PDF (with image) // PDF (text only)

Thirdly, I had far too much fun putting together faux!Tumblrs for Blaine and Tina (and let’s just pretend Tumblr can livestream, alright). Just silliness between them before Blaine turns his Tumblr into the place where he sets everything straight.

Blaine’s Tumblr // Tina’s Tumblr

Finally (I know, you’re thinking wtf right about now, I need to get a life), I made a soundtrack. Download it here.

dark side – kelly clarkson
there's a place that I know
it's not pretty there and few have ever gone
if I show it to you now will it make you run away
everybody's got a dark side
do you love me? can you love mine?

comforting lie – no doubt
I'm just a normal person without those problems
when did it change? admissions so embarrassing
I'm on the verge of tears again

sins of my youth – neon trees
the sins of my youth, all these mainstream made emotions
made me the boy that they wanted me to be
but when I took down my defenses for the first time there was something in me

wish I could forget – the weepies
do you disapprove? alright, you made your point
you don't have to choose right now
too much to ask, for just one kiss, you'll never know what I will miss

night air – teddy geiger
the night air breathes but not so easy as before
did you notice, did you take the time to listen
to my breath or to my words when I spoke

figure it out – maroon 5
I'm happy you're so impulsive means that you’re passionate
I’m happy you're moving so fast but will it ever last
I know you wanna break free from this monotony

your mistake – sister hazel
I'm not right, I'm not fine
I wanna get clean, I wanna just fall out of in-between
I wanna be everything except for your mistake

somebody that I used to know (a capella) – pentatonix
now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
but had me believing it was always something that I'd done
but I don't wanna live that way reading into every word you say

midnight train to georgia (a capella) – dartmouth aires
L.A. proved too much for the man so he's leaving a life he's come to know
he said he's going back to find what's left of his world
the world he left behind not so long ago

s & m – andrew garcia, todrick hall, & luke edgemon
feels so good being bad, there's no way I'm turning back
now the pain is my pleasure, cause nothing could measure

relative – gavin degraw
it's all about the way we receive it
how much we believe it depending on the life you lead
and all is relative, everything is relative, yes, it is

I’d rather be in love – michelle branch
'cause when there's you, I feel whole and there's no better feeling in the world
without you I'm alone and I'd rather be in love with you

(also I keep seeing stuff about mediafire links expiring, if anyone gets that warning, please let me know so I can reupload? ❤ alternate links.)

That was amazing. I read your fics all the time and have to say, the fact that I was so enthralled with a non-porny one is a sign of how great you are as a writer. Well done and thank you for writing.

All kinds of incredible, like, actually. This makes me so happy; it's such a neat idea and it's so perfectly executed. I love it.

Wow. This looks amazing, I can't wait to jump in. I really appreciate the amount of work you put in to this and especially the pretty PDF so I can read it on my kindle.

So... I read this all in one sitting. Oops? But really, what's better than Glee? Glee crossed with Easy A, obviously! The universes work so well together, and I loved seeing how you fit the Glee characters into the various Easy A roles. Blaine would be too nice to tell people to stop using him, it's almost too perfect! And Sebastian... he almost seemed more in-character in this fic than he does in the show, if that makes sense. Such a fun story, so well-written, and all the extras were super fun (the PDF and poster are gorgeous!). Thanks for the lovely read!

This is so much fun! I love Blaine's interactions with everyone, especially Rachel when they were faking it.

I loved this so much. Rachel's text messages ("xoxo, Rachel") cracked me up. I loved Tina and Mike's relationship, how kind Wes was, and the way you worked Sebastian in. And the moment where Blaine meets Kurt on the staircase... my heart stopped just like it did in canon.

pure awesome.

I'm really impressed how all the Glee characters fit so well into the Easy A plot.
