Fic: Emotions in Limine for gleebigbang {Master Post}  
Title: Emotions in Limine
Word Count: 30,367
Rating: NC-17
Characters/Pairings: Klaine, with extremely minor background Tike, Brittana, Quartie, Finchel, and Luck
Warnings Sexual context (Klaine – handjobs, blowjobs, rimming, anal, sex in an office/unintentional voyeurism), mentions of past Kurtbastian (mostly so I didn’t have to deal with an OC), abstract talk of a past minor character death
Summary: As one of the founding partners at The Firm of Hummel, Lopez, and Smythe, Kurt is far too busy to worry about a personal life – on top of the stress of trying to make a name for himself as one of the most promising young attorneys in the Midwest, he’s got to keep a handle on his own office politics, which consist of Santana hooking up with their receptionist and Sebastian trying to get into his pants. When they hire a few new paralegals to help with their impending caseload, the last thing Kurt expects is to fall in love with one Blaine Anderson – and especially not on the eve of his thirtieth birthday. Can their secret office romance survive when their coworkers are quite possibly the nosiest group of people in the whole state of Illinois?

Disclaimer: Not mine, don’t sue, or if you do, I request a t-shirt for your troubles. I am well aware that admission to a bar association varies by state, and just because Kurt, Sebastian, and Santana are able to practice law in Illinois, this does not grant them the ability to do so in every state. Instead of being worried about the accuracy of every single statement in this fic, I decided to not stress myself out and take a little artistic license with the law profession. My husband and various close relatives and friends have all worked in the field (the traveling bit was totally ganked from a friend to suit my needs – so sorry your life turned into porn, G). The only research I did was picking their brains over cocktails and spending a few hours on Google (starting your own law practice shortly after graduation is actually a growing trend now, though, color me shocked). What I’m trying to say – if this is a problem for you, perhaps this is not a story you should read. :) It's a story about lawyers, yes, but mostly it's a story about love and that's what I wanted to focus on.

Thanks: Back around Thanksgiving, colfer said someone should write paralegal!Blaine and lawyer!Kurt having sex in Kurt’s office. This … is what that turned into. (This is also a note that I keep prompts around forever, and can’t be concise to save my life.) Thanks to her, djgulia, and ccmskatechick for their eyes and ears, and to wordplay for listening to my whining. The bulk of this has been mostly done for almost two months, and man, was it hard holding it, though I guess we’re kind of in a rut now. I guess regala_electra was right – I am Batman.

that was so cute
I love how honest and mature you write these characters, but they still make earnest mistakes and get emotional and huffy just as in canon. The only thing I sorta missed was a Vegas setting, but I can live with Chicago. ;)

Favourite and also best.

I feel like I have waited forever to read this, even though in reality it's only just over a week. I'm just back off holiday today and knew a full day in the office after a week and a bit off was going to be a killer so I saved this to read at lunch time as a reward for surviving the morning. What a reward it is.

I always love your writing because it's honest and real and tender and funny and all of the good adjectives and none of the bad ones and this piece is no different.
You really seem to have gotten right into the dynamics of small firm politics and the way you've made all the characters true to that situation at the same time true to their canon characters is awesome.

[random aside: The accidental sex tape, she so would watch it [who wouldn't lets be honest here] and that scene was hot. ]

I LOVED Kurt and Blaine in this setting - why is lawyer!Kurt so hot please? I loved the attraction and the build up and the adorbableness and the navigating of 'this a new relationship and it's an office relationship and you're my boss/employee and how do we do this' and the general lovey-ness all mixed up with the PORN. 'Mazing.
You're so right, it *is* a story about love and it got me right in the feels.

I also loved your Santana, because I love Santana and I love it when people write her well, and you totally did here.

I'm not a fan of Kurtbastian generally, I can never quite *get* it somehow, because, well, I just don't think Kurt would. Except here. I didn't so much like it, but I understood it, it made perfect sense for the story and worked so much better I think than an OC so kudos to you on that score.

I didn't want it to end, except I'm glad it did becasue, work, but I DIDN'T WANT IT TO END.

HowEVER. Burt. Buuuuuuuuuuuurt :( I may never be totally happy again.

<3

I'm so glad it didn't disappoint, dear!! ♥ SO SORRY ABOUT BURT I WILL NEVER KILL HIM OFF AGAIN XD and so glad the Kurtbastian worked for you, that's how I wanted it to come off and I thought an OC would just be clunky so yay. thank you so much for reading and the lovely lovely comment <33333
