Presenting my contribution to the Kurt Big Bang, otherwise known as my Baptist!Burt AU.
Burt Hummel was a conservative Baptist pastor when his son turned his world upside-down. Follows Kurt’s life from early childhood, through his mother’s death, adolescence, to meeting Blaine. See how and why Burt’s mind opens and changes as Kurt grows up.
So many thanks to Kate ( anxioussquirrel) for the many test reads and all the feedback she gave me to make this a better, stronger story. Two heads are definitely better than one when it comes to my writing. Also, thanks to Scout ( scout451) for the quick turn-around, last minute beta as I was flying to get it done in time for my deadline.
Check out the amazing art by Abby ( worthysquash ), as well, here, here and here.
I’m pretty proud of this one, guys. Let me know what you think.

Elizabeth smiled down at him, eyes sparkling as she joined him on the next line.
Mi, a name, I call myself. Fa, a long, long way to run!
She stood up and took his hands, joining him as they went twirling and dancing around the room.
Sol, a needle pulling thread. La, a note to follow sol.
Ti, a drink with jam and bread. That will bring us back to do-do-do-do.
“What’s going on in here?”
