OF MANGLED MEN AND BATTERED BONES. ☆ KURTBASTIAN. [1/?]
- WORDS → 4,305
SHIPPING → Mentions of Klaine, eventual Kurtbastian.
THE SYNOPSIS → Kurt wakes up alone and confused as hell in the hospital when he runs into a very nasty surprise. The last person he’s expecting to see at his side would be Sebastian Smythe.
GENERAL NOTES → Inspired by this incredible photoset here, so essentially The Walking Dead, though it’s going to take a very different route. Everything up to On My Way is canon save for the fact that it’s Kurt that was late, not Quinn. Along with that the accident was also much less serious, though enough to put him under for a while. If you’re looking for instant Kurtbastian, you probably don’t want to waste your time considering build-up is my favorite so there will be much of that. I also apologize for the rambling, setting up things always takes the longest.
It’s a kick start to the fucking heart when Kurt lunges forward, yanked unceremoniously from his unconscious slumber. The pain takes a full three seconds to shoot through his limbs and suddenly the world is materializing around him. His head feels like it’s smashed and on fire all at once, there is a ruthless pinch down at his wrist and a clatter currently echoing off the walls which only increases the inner fire in his brain. At first he doesn’t think he’s breathing despite his chest heaving ridiculously against the thin fabric of the hospital gown. His body feels tight but broken, numb and unresponsive, even as he blinks ferociously rubbing his eyes through the pain, he is discombobulated and so, so fucking confused. The clatter finally subsides when the fallen IV settles on the floor which he would normally be beyond thankful for, but Kurt’s throat is on absolute fire, and it’s dry and it hurts so much to swallow. He coughs into the stagnant air only to feel the burn shoot down his esophagus. Kurt has never felt this horrible, not even after the rise and fall of April Rhodes. This is a different kind of pain though, almost surreal and out of body but he can’t put his finger on it.
