Tears of Mourning Sink Beneath the Sun
Summary: Scenes from Kurt’s complicated life during the two weeks following Blaine’s disastrous trip to New York.
Pairings: Klaine (estranged), Hummelberry (friendship), Kurse (friendship and ~temptation), the Hudmel family, Kurtbelle (friendship). Mentions of off-page Finchel, Brochel, other friendships, and canon infidelity.
Word Count: 15,783
Warnings: Depression. A little bit of masturbation and shenanigans. Lots of well-meaning invasiveness and long heartfelt conversations.
Author’s Notes: I spent an unhealthy amount of time thinking about how Kurt’s life could change after 4x04, and this thing is the result. The story focuses on Kurt, but I tried to be really fair in my handling of other characters (like Blaine). Title comes from the lyrics to Madonna’s song Ray of Light, which plays a minor (and totally ridiculous) role in the story.
