Complete Klaine rec list

This is just a list of all the fic that I've read and enjoyed immensely so far in this pairing -- most of which I have already recced elsewhere on my journal. However, I figured that it couldn't hurt to have a comprehensive list in one place. :3

NB: LJ has eaten this on three different occasions, now, but I think I've recreated the list successfully each time. If I'm missing things -- I could have sworn I had a 30k+ category, but I can't for the life of me figure out what was in it -- please let me know so I can fix it! :&

Five Times Blaine Exceeded Expectations by etacanis

That time of year again for the duets competition and it’s all jacked up. PG

No Regrets, Just Love by twentysomething

Five Times Kurt and Blaine Are Mistaken for More Than Friends by  rockinhamburger 
"I think you’re kidding yourself." PG-13

101 Ways Blaine Tips McKinley On Its Head (Without Batting an Eyelash) by  mary_flanner 
So instead of slinking off to the bathroom to change clothes, rinse his hair and nurse his wounded pride, Blaine capitalizes on the years of pent up l’esprit de l’escalier he’s had seething through his veins since the day he left his old school. R

Jazz Hands by  penelopemuse 
Blaine is a master of fitting in. After all, he's gone a year and a half at McKinley without anyone realizing that he is gayer than a treeful of canaries. Then he sees Kurt Hummel and, suddenly, fitting in isn't everything it was cracked up to be. PG-13

All I See Is You by  skintightsocks 
Kurt isn't sure when this became, like, a thing for him, but he's so used to seeing Blaine polished and put together that seeing him with wild hair and glasses and sleep clothes, Kurt's clothes, is kind of driving him crazy. NC-17

En Guarde by  byham_rory 
Finn's more observant than people give him credit for, because he totally knows something's up with Kurt. When Jacob Ben Israel reveals that he knows what's up thanks to a hidden camera, Finn goes into protective-big-brother mode and swears to make things all better. Also, he threatens Blaine with a steak knife because he just so happens to have one in his hand. PG-13

Taste The Warming Glow by  pyroclastic

Sickness by  heroes_and_cons 
The year is 1954, and Blaine and Kurt are two friends who attend Dalton Academy in Westerville, Ohio. Having been raised by an ex-Marine father, Blaine is never one to venture outside the norm, yet he’s unable to resist the way he feels about Kurt.

Five Times Kurt Hummel Makes Excuses For Dave Karofsky’s Deplorable Behavior (and the one time he absolutely freaking doesn’t) by  caroline_shea

Of Frenchmen and Fractals by  kivrinengle

From The Desk Of The Fourth Writer... by  byham_rory 
Jesse St. James was at Sectionals. He overheard Rachel's song for Finn in the auditorium. Blaine plotted with Wes and David to sing with Kurt. Blaine's a dork who fails at confessing his feelings. Mr. Schuester did have a reason to be at Dalton, I promise. Jesse's kind of a stalker, but with good intentions. Also, Christmas spirit. He and Kurt like bearing gifts. Puck and Quinn remember their daughter's first Christmas. And Blaine is still a complete dork who doesn't fail at confessing his feelings. tl;dr: A complete re-write of 2x10. PG-13

Scenes From A Thai Restaurant by  rusting_roses
