How do you document real life?


Hi, I'm Lauren!
(or rdm, if you prefer the shorter name with the longer story)

I'm 23, a university student and a self-confessed music nerd.

Here you'll find Glee, Disney, Sherlock, fic, musicals, pretty people, pretty things and my ramblings.
Oh and I have a tendency to overshare. Don't say I didn't warn you.

What I Already Knew 

newleasemylove:

Title: What I Already Knew
Fandom: Glee
Pairing: Klaine (with tiny mentions of Finchel)
Spoilers: none
Warnings: AU
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 25,570
Betas: the lovely Adi and Brittany who are pretty much the reason I a) entered the reversebang in the first place and b) the fic actually got written at all

Summary: Prince Kurt Hummel and Princess Rachel Berry have been promised to each other since they were very, very young — the problem is, neither is really happy with this. And then Blaine, the Berry’s’ stable boy, comes along and throws everything they’ve resigned themselves to into utter chaos.

Art: here! It’s absolutely stunning, I fell in love with it the instant I saw it and was lucky enough to be able to write for it :)

Link to fic: masterpost / part one

Link to the reversebang comm: here :)

Author’s note: First of all, I must apologise this being up late — believe me when I say I’ve been trying to get this up as fast as I can. This is my longest fic to date, by a long shot — and I can’t quite believe I actually pulled it off.

I want to say the biggest thank you to Britt, who not only helped me research and plot this fic out, but she stepped up and wrote sections of it for me when I was stressed out of my mind. Multiple times. She also nitpicked a lot of my grammar before it even got to my formal beta (who also is wonderful) and I know this fic is better for it. Not to mention every time she told me that I could, indeed, pull this off. I love you bb <3

Another special note goes out to Cass, my best friend, who has only started to watch Glee, had almost no idea what any of this was about — but still sat there with me yesterday and helped me rewrite my prologue until I was actually happy with it. Thank you both so much.

Now for the fun stuff! Britt did a whole lot of research for me re things like tiaras and crowns — I’ll put up a post here soon. The post is up, finally! It’s here.

Also, we made a playlist that accompanies the fic, and we think it’s well worth listening to it in order. You can download it (with gorgeous cover art made by Britt with the artwork) here. The tracklist is here.

Edit: the fic is now up on AO3! There are other drabbles that will be posted there, on tumblr, and on livejournal.

All other drabbles can be found in the tag here.

Prompt: Tike, trying to fall asleep together for the first time

Tina had been so excited for her parents to go on vacation for the weekend so she could have Mike stay over without having to sleep in separate rooms.

While she hadn’t thought having Mike in her bed would be conducive to sleep, she had thought it would be for rather different reasons. Making out related reasons.
Not because he’s stretched himself across most of the available space in her bed. It’s been an hour since they’d decided to try and sleep, about 55 minutes since Mike had succeeded, and about 40 minutes since she’d gotten used to how adorable he is when he’s asleep.

She sighs and reaches for the book on her bedside table. Apparently it’s going to be a long night.

Like Magic 

So this is just a tiny thing for Britt because she is wonderful and kept me sane while I was doing all of my assignments and stuff. <3

Blaine thinks this might just be his very favorite thing. Actually, no, he knows it is. It’s what he thinks about when he says Daddy’s hands are magic, but everyone always thinks of other things. Naughty things. Daddy playing with his hair and rubbing his head and pulling at the curls isn’t naughty, not really. Not that he says “Daddy” because that would be bad. And bad boys don’t get treats like this.

He giggles. He just thought that last bit in Daddy’s voice and it was funny.

Are you alright there, sweetheart?”

Blaine tries to nod, but just ends up rubbing his cheek against the thigh he’s resting against.

“Mmmfine,” he says. The hand stops moving and he whines.

“Okay, okay, hang on! My leg is numb, baby, can you sit up for me?”

Blaine can’t sit up he’s too sleepy and happy and he can’t move. Instead he just slides his head off Daddy’s lap and curls into a ball on the bed. He hears Daddy laugh, clear and bright, and his smile gets even bigger.

“Love you, Daddy,” he mumbles.

“Love you too, sweetheart.”

Blaine sighs happily.

“More?”

Daddy’s hand comes back and tangles in his hair. Yep. It’s his favoritest thing.

newleasemylove submitted: Because I wasn’t around when you needed distraction today, have a late piece of fluff <3 

whynobritneybrittany:

I still haven’t seen the latest episode so this is in some lala land where there is no angst right now okay? okay.

The envelope is nondescript, with a very familiar address written on the back when Kurt turns it over to find out who it’s from. It takes another moment after that for the meaning of the untidy scrawl on the front to sink in — and a slow smile spreads across his face. Blaine has impeccable handwriting, usually.

He tears it open — now he’s worked out what it is he doesn’t want to wait.

He’s not disappointed.

Daddy! Daddy look I drawed a thing!

Kurt chuckles to himself. That’s the extent of the note (with a huge wonky heart drawn underneath it, of course) and so he pulls out the other sheet of paper to look at.

It’s two stick figures, naturally, and a rough outline of a house. It’s all drawn in brightly coloured crayon and has no sense of scale whatsoever. Kurt feels like his face is going to crack in two from smiling when he sees the bright purple bowtie on the slightly shorter stick figure.

There’s one word scribbled with an arrow pointing towards the house.

SOON.

Kurt carefully tucks the drawing away where it won’t be found (he’d dearly love to pin it up somewhere, but he can’t risk it being seen) and grabs his phone.

I love the picture, sweetheart! Come on Skype later, okay? I want to tell you properly just how much xx

Laurennnnnn.  Thank you, bb.  I love you a whole lot, okay?  Okay.  Glad that’s settled.  I love it.  <33

I write things for people sometimes.

They Brought Me Soup! 

newleasemylove:

So, I, um, wrote this.

Pairing: Klaine
Warnings: daddy!kink, spoilers for Michael
Rating: pg-13 (it’s fluff, mostly)
A/N: I can’t believe I wrote this, and so I guess you all have Brittany to blame/thank for that. You should also go read her companion to this here.

So Close, But Still So Far 

Another random Quinntina friendship drabble!

As Quinn chatters on about Yale, and how she’s getting out of this chair by year’s end if it kills her, Tina feels herself close off.

She’s been doing better at this whole listening business — like a good friend should — but now it’s too much to take.

“Quinn.”

Like This? 

More dk!klaine - because I can. From a prompt Merry gave me a little while ago. 

(Rated R, for the record.)

When Kurt looks down at Blaine and sees how he has ended up he can’t help but huff out a laugh. Blaine is half-kneeling, half-sitting in his lap with one knee either side of Kurt’s hips, and has slumped down so his face is buried into his Daddy’s chest. Kurt has no idea how that is remotely comfortable, but apparently it is because Blaine has been asleep for half an hour.

It’s adorable.
