Okay, I'm not going to even touch on the Quinn/Finn parts of this episode - I'm trying to forget it ever happened. Nor am I going to talk about Will/Holly because regarding their relationship - IDGAF. And (surprise surprise) I won't be talking about Blaine/Kurt even though I found their whole "sexy" talk thing freaking hilarious.
No. I'm going to step away from all that for a bit and talk about my first OTP from Glee - Brittany/Santana. I began shipping them in the first season after this exchange:
Santana: sex isn't dating
Brittany: if it were, Santana and I would be dating
And so it began. I was so excited during the 'Duets' episode because I thought for sure that the two of them would get their shit together and be a couple. Of course, Glee never turns out how we expect/want it to. This episode, 'Sexy', however, blew my mind. Naya Rivera acted her butt off in this, and she had me in tears every time she started crying. I think there were hints of this coming in the 'Blame It on the Alcohol' episode, and I'm so glad they acted on it.
As a bisexual, Glee on occasion annoys the hell out of me. In addition to initially showing Santana and Brittany's relationship as a 'fun on the side' thing and not actually acknowleding any possible lesbianism between the two, they also have a main character (Kurt) take a dig at bisexuals without coming back to the topic or forcing him to admit that what he said was wrong. I like that Brittany in this episode is confused about her sexuality, and how Santana seems to get over her 'gay panic' issues to really be truthful about how she feels.
Landslide was one of the most beautiful Glee performances I've seen, and the third one ever to make me cry (first two were 'To Sir With Love' and 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'). Her confrontation with Brittany in front of the lockers was so brave and I was literally clapping and crying all at the same time while I was watching it. Santana has really grown as a character, and I feel like I can finally tick off one of the points on my glee wishlist - to see some growth and emotion with Santana that doesn't revolve around anger or arrogance.
Justin Bieber what? Seriously, what?
I felt sorry for Quinn during this but part of me felt that she kind of deserved it. She can be so manipulative. I love my bb, but seriously?
I wanted to hit Finn. Like seriously. I wanted to cause him pain. I cannot stand him right now. He's just... mean.
Sam was absolutely adorable during this episode, and him trying to "sexy" and an "artist" cracked me up.
Um. But other than that I wasn't really into this episode. So lets just move on.
Sometimes I feel like this episode was a bit preachy. But it was also full of deliciously awesome crack, so I kind of loved it.
Okay. Things I loved - Rachel. But to a point. I loved her being drunk because she was adorable but I hated the way she treated Kurt. Seriously. She was horrible. She knew how much Kurt liked Blaine, and I get that she was drunk, and she just went for it. Ugh.
Just the glee club in general cracked me up.
OH GOD MY BB Santana, crying all the time, I love her so much. She's adorable.
Um. What else. Lauren. I love Lauren. I love how Lauren and Quinn just attacked Puck. Angry drunks for the win!
Personally, I'm more like Tina and Mercedes, but I ALWAYS end up as Santana. I'm a "everything is funny oh god can't stop laughing oh god now I'm crying I hate my life."
I also didn't like Kurt's bi-phobia. As a bisexual, I just was really pissed off by his little tirade. And then the fact that it wasn't addressed again really bothered me. I was kind of hoping that Blaine would end up being bisexual just so they could explore it a bit more.
Harry Potter is sadly lacking in this, but GLEE. Oh my Gaga, the Glee fandom rocks at writing horror/apocalypse/paranormal/thriller fic. And I love them for it. I'm signed up for the klainebigbang, and reading through the prompt/plot post makes me super happy, because I can already see that a couple of people have got horror-related plots.
It's funny isn't it? For a show that advertises itself as a musical-comedy, the amount of dark!fanfiction is astounding. And totally awesome.
I'm going to have to make a rec-list for fics like this - the glee_angst_meme will be a great place to start.
Also, just want to pimp out gleeoverbigbang- the big bang for glee crossover fic! I'm the only person signed up as an artist so far :(
WE NEED MORE ARTISTS!
If you're a Glee fan and ESPECIALLY if you ship those dapper boys, go over to klainebigbang and sign up!
I like nervous and excited all in one big bundle. EEK!
Also I need to make posts for the last two Glee eps, totally forgot about doing them. Soon you'll hear all about what I really think of Justin Bieber, why I love Lauren, and why Finn if currently on my shit-list.
Oh, and lots of gushing about Rachel. LOVE MAH BB ♥
*as an artist of course, fanmixes here I come!
Also, apologies for the possibly seizure-inducing gif
Sue going nuts was freaking hilarious
Puck - "I WILL GO TIK TOK ON YOUR FACE"
Puck and Finn's epic bromance is a go? YESSSS
I love Quinn sticking up for herself and the team - she seems like a good captain
Zombie camp cracked me up so bad - especially Rachel doing her regular old 'glide across the floor' dancing
Their makeup was awesome
She's Not There done as a zombie performance was freakin bizarre
You know for a minute there I actually liked Karofsky...
MERCEDES AND RACHEL AND BLAINE AND KURT
Lauren - "I'M GONNA BRING THE PAIN"
Lol what are they doing omg joining the football team this is going to be hilarious

"LET'S KICK SOME ASS!!" - Rachel I love you so much. this is why you're my favourite ♥
OMG TINA I LOVE YOU YOU ARE A MACHINE. A MACHINE.
Brittany sticking up for herself and the girls quitting = amazing
Not liking this hint of Quinn/Finn business though :/

ZOMBIES FTW SERIOUSLY I AM LOVING THIS EPISODE SO MUCH PRETTY MUCH FOR THE ZOMBIES

I honestly hought some of the football players would join Glee club :( so disappointed in Karofsky
WHAT THE FUCK
(my reaction to hearing the song? see the guy behind Kurt that's all like "CHYEAAAAAAH!" - that was me)
After all the shit going on, it's lovely to just sit back and listen to Darren Criss and get all excited about a new Glee episode and promises of Kurt/Blaine-ness.
Anyone else heard it yet? DO YOU THINK IT'S AWESOME Y/Y? And is anyone else besides me looking forward to the idea that Blaine might have a ~dark side? Methinks I've been influenced by the glee_angst_meme...
- LOOK AT THEM AS THEY STARE LOVINGLY AT
EACH OTHERS LIPS OH MY GAGA

- FURT - god I'm so happy these two are okay now (to a degree...)
- I can't believe what happened at the end. I knew it was coming, but it was just... UGH
- Sam/Quinn have grown on me now, I have to admit. I kind of think they're adorable, even though I'm a pretty hardcore Puck/Quinn shipper.
- It needs to be next week like YESTERDAY. I HAVE TO KNOW WHO WINS AT SECTIONALS.

I'm a Jazz baby, and I grew up listening to the Andrews Sisters and Billie Holiday and a whole number of musicians from the 30's - 50's. So when I saw the description for her on her facebook page, I had to check her out. And I think she's brilliant and I'm totally squeeing listening to her because she's just adorable and wonderful and very talented and why hasn't she been signed yet? ♥
Forget that now, more important things to discuss. Like oh, I don't know, the LILYJAMES_FEST!!!
I am ridiculously excited about this, I cannot even begin to express how much. I checked through the prompt list, and people have claimed some really interesting ones - I can't wait to see what they come up with!
Who else is excited/ is participating/has thoughts on the fest?
And why aren't there more Lily/James fests? I know there's the marauder big bang (which I'm also thrilled about), but what about career fests for Lily/James? Or am I just blind and are they lurking around on lj?
Okay, so rs_career_fest . AMAZING. I admit to just getting around to properly reading through all of them. Thoughts and favourites under the cut:
( I feel like a kid at Christmas going through all this fic!!! )
