I had no clue the Globes were on tonight until the Internet exploded on me. Apparently Chris Colfer won, which, awesome, and his castmates are all happy for him? I sorta dropped out of Glee fandom over the hiatus (could not handle the wank), but I was really impressed with his work this season, I'm glad he won.

GIFs already exist, wow. )

Adorable. (Also, I have already seen people telling Lea Michele to "get over herself" (over at [ profile] cleolinda's liveblog, not any of the official Glee-fandom places, but still. This is why I have been ignoring this show when it isn't airing.

Title: Machinations
Fandom: Glee
Characters/Pairings: Kurt, Rachel, Quinn, Blaine, Brittany [Mike, Tina, Puck, Lauren, Finn, Mercedes and Santana mentioned]. Kurt/Blaine [discussed], Rachel/Finn [discussed]
Rating/Warnings:  Discussion of violence, crime, real obscenities, fictional obscenities, technobabble, references to sex, Brittany with explosives
Word Count: 1200
Written for: [ profile] gleejukebox, to the song "We Both Reached for the Gun," from Chicago.
Spoilers: None, really.
Notes: I almost went with "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," after the last episode (Special Education). Then I decided I had enough angstfic planned and wrote a cyberpunk criminal organization AU.

Rachel offered the aide a shy smile as a warm-up performance and followed him towards the door, her mind buzzing. Field work was fun, but she loved to act, and the courts were a vital stage. )

Title: Luck is a Lady of Very Poor Repute
Fandom: Glee
Characters/Pairings: Rachel, Kurt, cameo by Finn
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 (R for language), discussion of prostitution, some spoilers (up to Furt).
Wordcount: 3,000
This was intended as commentfic over at [ profile] avoidmynose's Kurt and Rachel appreciation post. Many comments-worth of fic later...

Late at night in January 2025, Kurt gets a desperate call from someone he hasn't seen in a very long time. )

Note on the music featured - obviously, I made it up. For purposes of fic, assume Gleeverse!Lady Gaga* nearly drops into obscurity but then makes a jawdropping comeback and stuns everyone.

*My belief is that the Gleeverse celebrities are not actually the same people as their real-world counterparts. See also: Olivia Newton-John's lack of "Physical" remake with added Sue, not to mention Josh Groban and blowsy alcoholics.

Lo, the perils of liking rock and obscure indie pop and just plain other stuff that is unlikely to ever appear on Glee, and also loving Glee. Or, the List of Mental Performances That Are Not Gonna Happen, Sorry.

For example, I just made the mistake of reading [ profile] miggy's Mostverse while listening to Stars' duet version of "Fairytale of New York." Now I have this bizarre mental image of Rachel and Finn dueting this (with a certain term changed to "jackass") in a fantasy-sequence-turned nightmare. (Stars has several songs that could easily turn into angsty Finnchel futurefic. "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" comes to mind. It's about meeting an old lover at a party and realizing how much both of you have changed.)

And I really wish that instead of Rocky Horror, the Halloween episode had involved Quinn singing "I Want My Innocence Back," at Puck. Not to Puck, at Puck. Scaring the hell out of him. I think she could do it, too, both the character and Dianna Agron. I'm no musical expert, but it sounds right.

Kurt/Blaine to the Goo Goo Dolls, either Blaine serenading him with "Dizzy" ("You're cynical and beautiful/ You always make a scene.../I wanna kick at the machine/ That made you piss away your dreams/ And tear down your defenses/ Till there's nothing there but me/ You're angry when you're beautiful..." Doesn't that sound a bit like Kurt to anyone?) or a duet between them to "I'm Still Here," ("And how/does the world want me to change/They're the ones that stay the same..." Actually, it could work as a Kurt solo, too.)

On the subject of Disney, I really want Quinn and Mercedes to sing "God Help the Outcasts."  Our two silver-tongued ladies of faith dueting on one of Disney's most beautiful, fragile tracks? It would be way more ethereal than Mercedes' normal choices, but still interesting.

Further, I am dying for a group performance of Paramore's "Born for This." I have no words to express how badly I want to see this at Regionals or Nationals. ("All right, so you think you're ready? Okay then, say this with me, go. WE WERE BORN FOR THIS!" So freaking awesome, and you know they all were. Especially Kurt and Rachel.) This is a little more likely, since they did cover Paramore once, but this song is not new, a single, or a huge hit. So I doubt I'm getting this, incredible as it is.

And of course, I have a lot of songs that could work as group performances once the show brings up graduation, but which will never ever happen. "Angels On the Moon" is a bit of a stretch, but it could work, especially if some of the kids end up going to NYC, and double-especially if they changed the lyric to "Don't tell me if I'm leaving," or something like that. It could work. Failing that, Matchbox Twenty's "How Far We've Come." Or they could sing Vienna Teng's utterly gorgeous "Harbor" to each other, for more of a "we'll all keep in touch" promise that could utterly break my heart.

I know I've had other ideas, though I can't remember them right now. And hey, they're doing "Dog Days Are Over,", which I would have labelled as a further-out choice than this entire list except for "Innocence" and "Fairytale." It is pretty recent, though, which may explain it.

Just rewatched this performance (for the link-phobic, it's the Glee performance of "Marry You").


Two, Puck/Artie/Brittany/Santana OT4 goodfic. Where is it hiding? Show it to me or I'll shoot this chocolate bunny!

Also, note to self: No watching adorable videos while trying to write angstfic. Bother it.

Title: What We Refuse to Do
Author: [ profile] sour_idealist 
Characters/Pairing: Puck/Quinn, mentions of that pairing at the end of "Duets."
Ratings/Warnings: PG-13 for language. Be aware that some of this language is offensive beyond just being obscene; this is an attempt at Puck's voice, not the kind of language I would normally use.
Spoilers: Through the aforementioned 2x4, "Duets."
Disclaimer: If I owned Glee, Kurt would have a boyfriend by now. The lyrics quoted are property of Billy Joel.
Author's Notes: Angsty. First attempt to use Puck's voice; advice is appreciated.

There is no way in hell that Puck is doing this. )

Well, the title certainly sums up the first part, anyway.
- Total absence of plot, much?
- Why am I not surprised that Brittany has so many cavities?
- Mm, sexy Brittana-ness.
- I loved everyone else's thrilled expressions when Kurt blew up at Mr. Schue.
- Speaking of which, I've been trying to stay out of the Let's Strangle Will Schuester Club, but those cards by the door are looking more and more tempting... seriously, crazy stalker much?
- I also loved Rachel's schoolgirl outfit.
- The "Toxic" thing was, yes, wildly inappropriate. But it was one fabulous show.
- Rachel did Paramore! And it was... not actually one of my favorites by Rachel, but it was still a cute moment.
- Speaking of Paramore, they really should do "Born For This." It'd make such a wonderful group number.
- Speaking of Rachel, is this just going to be a pattern? End with one of her songs? But the others got some focus, at least. And hey, I love Rachel.
- Speaking more of Rachel, this episode really hammered home that she just does not know how to be in a relationship. And, you know, how would she? Most people have that period in middle school, when relationships last about a week and nobody really expects more than that, and it's kind of a testing ground when everyone figures out how all this works. Rachel didn't have that; she's just thrown into the middle of it at a point when relationships are expected to be a little bit more stable, and she doesn't know how to handle it. I might be projecting a little bit here, but it seems kind of like there's this little piece of her that wants it to end, because then things will be back into territory she understands. I like that they're going that angle. It's realistic. 
- This is actually my brother's commentary, but he predicted that Mike and Tina would stay together and Artie would end up with Mercedes. I... could actually get behind that.

And coming next week...
- Puck/Quinn. Billy Joel. "Only the Good Die Young." WHY DID I NOT REALIZE HOW BADLY THIS NEEDED TO HAPPEN?!

First order of business: Three drabbles up at [ profile] ff_yuri_drabble and one at [ profile] ff_xiii .

I'd be really happy if you could read them? )
Second order of business: a meme swiped from [ profile] imadra_blue.

Write down the names of 10 characters.
Write an one-sentence fic for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. Do NOT read the prompts before writing the names.

1. Howl/Howell Jenkins (Howl’s Moving Castle, bookverse)

(Note: As I am a member of the PPC and Lux is free for all use, I suppose this could technically be canon. But it really isn't.)

This was actually really fun. )
