*I would like to state that I never have and never will flame someone. I believe writing is meant to be enjoyed and if you don't like something then don't read it. With that said, I would also like to say that I am just doing this to share fics that I have read and came to love.Of Our Hands by klainekittensBlaine barely survived his last school, and now he’s the new kid at McKinley High. He didn’t expect to make any friends, especially not one as popular and handsome as Kurt Hummel. As their friendship grows, Kurt begins to discover that Blaine has a unique set of needs, and Kurt is determined to take care of him. Jock!Kurt AU, deals with issues of touch starvations and a dominant/submissive relationship.This story is rated NC-17, WIP with 14 chapters so far, and around 50,000 words to date.
Categories listed as: AU, D/s, (I also add Romance, and Hurt/comfort)
**Warnings of homophobia and mild violenceCharacters: Once again, I was very impressed with Kurt. Unlike some AUs where there's a Badboy!Kurt or Jock!Kurt the author will take him to the extreme. He'll dress complete opposite of canon, drink/smoke all the time, and most times, sleep with any male that he thinks is attractive. However, that isn't the case with klainekitten's Kurt. He's a jock, yes, but really only in the true aspect of the word - he plays sports. Kurt hangs out with Puck and Finn more, so he's more aggressive than canon Kurt, and he does dress less flamboyantly, but other than that, I feel he remains very close to "the original."
Blaine in this story isn't too much like his canon self - instead of energetic puppy, I would go so far as to compare him to a wounded deer. What I really liked with the Blaine in this story though was that even though he was very beaten down, he knew how to stick up for himself when the situation called for it.
Writing Style: KlaineKitten's writing style in this story is simple but it's almost elegant in being so. She paints her AU wonderfully, you aren't confused wondering where the character is, geographically and physically (e.x. saying they're in a chair on moment and then the next they're somehow in the middle of baking). What I really liked was the way she was able to convey what her characters were feeling. Lastly, she's able to switch from Kurt's pov to Blaine's within the story in an almost seamless way. There's no rehashing of events that already occurred and personally, I don't feel it takes away from the story.
Overall, I think Of Our Hands is a sweet story with it's ups and downs, but ultimately it boils down to two young men falling into an almost total power exchange relationship without even realizing something that like exists, let alone know that it's happening.
