This is amazing, seriously, I love it. They are so cute toegether! Please update soon?

Aw, thank you so much. This story has eaten my soul, so I'm hoping to get the rest up before the end of the week (and to free my plate for the Summer Love Fest!).

Thanks for reading.

Oooh, I'm loving this! Kurt the grease monkey has always been a secret fetish of mine. And of Mike's too apparently!

Grease-monkey Kurt is utterly charming. How could Mike resist?

Thanks for reading. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

How could they not be? Those two make it pretty easy.

Thanks so much for reading. Glad you're enjoying it.

But I wonder why I now have the sudden urge to write a Prim Mountie!Kurt/ Disheveled Cop!Mike AU. ;)

This is so cute so far! I love how you write Mike. Update soon!

Just taking a break from part two as I type this. :)

I'm glad you love Mike. I have this weirdly clear idea of him in my head based on very little information from the show, so I just keep creating backstory to explain it.

Thanks for your comment.

So much cute in one place! :D

Aw, thank you! Shy, awkward boys are the best.

This is so adorable! I love your take on Mike. :) I can't wait for the next part!

Thanks for commenting. I'm glad Mike comes across well. I've been a little hesitant about this story, since it is in large part a character study of Mike, so I'm so relieved that he is coming across well.

Next part soon (barring catastrophic writer's block).

I love it. You write them very teenagery which is nice because a lot of times writer's make Kurt especially, overly mature for what is his actual age.

I am so very pleased that you felt this way. As I'm a little on the far side of teenaged, I consciously struggled to remind myself that these are TEENAGE BOYS and need to be approached accordingly.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

I love your characterization of Mike - it rings true with what little we've seen of Mike on the show, and (to some extent) with what Harry's said about the character vis-à-vis his own experiences. And you've made Mike so adorable, omg.

Your Matt is awesome too, and I love the Mike/Matt/Brit/Sant friendship. Looking forward to the next part.

Oh goodness, thank you so much! I adore Harry Shum (believe it or not, he is actually why I started watching Glee), so I probably pay more attention to him that most people and I tried to draw on what I could remember of how the character reacted and interacted.

And I did read some of Harry's comments about shyness, so that really was a starting point- trying to understand why a shy football player would join the Glee Club in the first place.

Glad you like Matt. There will definitely be more of him and Santana. I'm trying to come up with a good Brittany-Mike scene, but I don't think I'm clever enough to write Brittany properly.

Anyway, sorry for the TL;DR. Really appreciate your comments. Thanks for reading.

Aww, this is so adorable! I absolutely adore your Mike (and your Matt). Can't wait until the next part. ♥

Thank you so much. I'm glad Mike worked for you, and Matt as well. I have a soft spot for Matt, even though he is even more of a mystery than Mike. I guess that just gives me the freedom to make him as awesome (and dorky) as I want to. :D

Thanks for your kind comments.

Oh man, this pairing has never even remotely come close to crossing my mind... but I have to say, I'm intrigued. I'm really liking this thusfar, especially your characterisations (all of the characters, even those who only make background appearances, ring true to me). Really looking forward the the next part! :D

Thanks for giving my fic as shot, even though it's a new pairing for you. I must direct you to kurtmike and here for truly fantastic fic that this pairing has inspired.

I'm so happy to hear that the characters are working for you. I love them all, so I agonize over getting them right. Thanks so much for the feedback.

YAY! I loved this fic over at the fluff meme and now that's there more of it, I am ecstatic. This is fantastic. Mike is so adorable :)

Oh, thank you so much. I rewrote quite a bit from what I originally posted, so I hope I didn't do too much harm in editing (I have a very vicious red pen).

Mike really is adorable. I don't know how anyone could fail to be charmed by someone who smiles so genuinely all the time.

So glad you are enjoying it. Thanks for commenting.

Eeeee! I LOVED this when I read it on the meme and I am thrilled to see you're expanding on it. I really like your Mike, he's got a level of complexity that a lot of people don't give him.

Wow, thank you for saying that. I have spent a lot of time agonizing over this story, so it is nice to hear that it is paying off.

I wanted to play around with how Kurt sees (or fails to see Mike)- what's obvious and what isn't so obvious- which is why I decided to do the switching POVs (which massively complicated the story I was originally going to tell). I'm so glad that it seems to be working for you and maybe building layers beyond "shy dancing guy." :)

Thanks so much for the feedback.

I love it! Especially Matt and Mike's friendship. Can't wait for the next chapter!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I like to think of Matt as the "new generation of dude" that Burt was talking about. I kind of have a crush on him. ;)

Thanks for reading.

Everything about this is awesome. And Mike and Matt's conversation while reading comics? Totally me and my bff. It's eerie. :D

I look forward to more!

Thanks so much. I enjoyed writing those two. I don't know why I made them comic geeks (other than being one myself), but it amuses me that I did.

I'll probably have to write a one-shot in the future about Matt and Mike driving Kurt crazy talking about comics, until they actually get him into one like Young Avengers or something. :D

More is on the way. Thanks for reading.

So this is not exactly a pairing I expected to find myself falling in love with (which is strange, as it now makes more sense than just about any other pairing in the fandom). Although I will admit that my requirements for a pairing do not, at this point, extend beyond "allowing me to picture hot guys having sex," by which of course I mean "allowing me to picture Chris Colfer having sex," and until we actually get Kurt's boyfriend on the scene, I really have no particular pairing I'm devoted to where he's concerned, but I have a feeling that might have just changed.

Did that make sense? No? Good.

My point is, this is awesome, and I want more.

Wow, it made perfect sense and was extremely flattering. Thanks for the kind words. I love this pairing and I would suggest checking out kurtmike and the kurt/mike tag on delicious for some really awesome fic with these two.

More is in the works and will be up shortly (I hope). Thanks for reading.

i love this pairing and i can't wait for more!

Thanks so much for reading. They are by far my favorite too. Making progress on part two, so stay tuned. :)

Aw! This is actually the first Kurt/Mike that I've tried (I'm just getting caught up on the Glee fanfiction community this summer in between seasons, actually) and it's really sweet! I can't wait for your next chapter! Now, of course, I'm off to browse the Kurt/Mike community... ;)

I'm glad you gave it a shot and enjoyed it. There is some really great Kurt/Mike fic out there.

Thanks for your kind comments.

This is so adorable (and a little sad, but more on that later). I love your Mike--he's cute and very sweet. Also, Matt is an added bonus of AWESOME BFF-NESS. Anyway, Kurt's quite in character and so is Burt, and the introspection for the characters is very believable.

Mike's ruminations about his family and his homosexuality are pretty sad and believable, and I can't wait to see you expand on them. The angst mixes perfectly with the humor in this story, and I'm going to stop typing now because now I'm just rambling.

Anyway, good job!


Rambling is good- if you take a look at any of my other responses to comments, you'll see it is a specialty of mine. I am really happy for any feedback you'd like to give! :)

That said, these comments make me very happy. Kurt is a hard character to get inside, so I'm glad the introspection worked for you. He is full of contradictions and I love him for it.

I like having room to play with Matt and Mike's characters. They're epic guy love deserves tomes of fic written about it. :)

As for Mike's family and his struggles with his sexuality, I'm glad it was believable. I was hesitant to go there with this story- homophobia is such a complex, insidious thing that I didn't want it to overtake the hopefulness of the story or to trivialize such an important problem.

But, I didn't know how to make sense of seemingly outgoing and enthusiastic Mike, who is at the same time shy, quiet and afraid to dance outside his room, without creating a context for it. And the idea of benignly (and not so benignly) neglectful parents who demand a certain idea of their son without making the effort to understand their child seemed plausible to me. I'm intentionally keeping them on the periphery of this story, but I need their presence to be felt by Mike (and eventually Kurt as he tries to understand Mike).

So, there you go- more rambling! Anyway, thanks so much for reading and for your kind words.

I commented on the meme already, but there's more now so I have to let you know how happy I am that you're continuing this. Your characterizations for everyone seem so genuine and I especially like how sweet Mike is. Also, even though the main characters of a pairing-focused story are the ones I absolutely need good characterization for, it always throws me off when authors mistreat the supporting characters by casual character bashing. I loved how nice the scene with Kurt and the girls was, as well as the fact that Santana is so very Santana, and that, of course, she was the one to let Mike know about himself :) Also, the dorky BFFness with Matt was nicely done. And finally, Kurt and his dad's wonderful relationship should always show up in every story :D I'm eagerly looking forward to more.

Thanks for sticking with the story. I really appreciate your kind comments.

I'm the same way about casual character bashing. You may notice that Will is nowhere to be seen in this. I have serious issues with the character, but I'm trying really hard to keep my biases away from Kurt and Mike.

I'm so happy you appreciated the non-shippy interactions. They are almost as important to me as the main pairing.

As for Burt, I could write about him being awesome all day. Santana too. :D

Thanks again for commenting again!

The best part about stumbling on this a few days AFTER it was posted? I know that I get to run straight to part 2 after I finish commenting here!

This is wondeful. I love the observations on Mike and Kurt's public personas. I completely believe that Kurt would have a different sort of "confidence" working in his dad's shop than the "defensive confidence" he displays at school. I adore the Matt/Mike friendship here. And I MAY just have a little (HUGE) thing for greasemonkey!Kurt.

Also?

She claims that humiliating me would be like punching a kitten. Or Miss Pillsbury.”

“Ouch.”

“Yeah,” Mike agrees. “Emasculation is totally her superpower.”


That little discussion was priceless. PRICELESS.

I replied to your part 2 comment first, but thanks again for your kind words.

Greasemonkey!Kurt is irresistible. There will probably be no end to the little stories and snippets I come up with for this universe.

Glad you enjoyed the Matt/Mike scene. I love them to an irrational degree and I could also probably write pages and pages of them bantering and being complete dorks. :)

Thanks again for reading and commenting!

this is my very first mike/kurt fic and i must say that is is above average and amazingly well written! this is too adorable!!!!!

So how exactly does Beijing country start Shanghai assemble for training fresh fine serve the demon
