Pretty things, silly things.

 

The girl who set the piano on fire. The crazy baby stealing mess. The one who’s in control of what she does and what she says. "I got into Yale."

This was an easy question to answer. Quinn’s arc in season three - up until she gets hit by the truck - is the main reason I get frustrated when people try to agree with me about how much Glee sucks and act like it’s sucked since the glory years. Because sure, nothing is ever going to be as great as 101-113, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been flashes of greatness since then. And if I left Quinn where she was in season 1? I wouldn’t feel all the important things I feel about her now. And in a way the front half of season 3 was a microcosm for Quinn, in that she went right back to her farcical teen-evil roots - trying to stealth a baby away, trying to stealth it back - self-destructing with Puck, self-destructing with people equally unimportant to her under the bleachers - she went back to all that and then she was yanked from it in the space of a few episodes by one Rachel Berry.

Rachel who told her she didn’t have to do the things she knows she’ll regret. Rachel who reminded her of the love she has for her child as opposed to the need she has for her. Rachel who reminded her that she’s a lot better than she knows.

And at the end of all that Quinn is brave, Quinn is powerful, Quinn is a star on a stage and Quinn is a star in her own life. Maybe not the shining star. But still.

She shines. She smiles like she means it. And she knows exactly where she’s going.

The front half of season 3 is when Quinn realized she’s not lost and she never really will be - because of the things she found in Rachel - because of the things she found in Glee - because of the things she found in Rachel and in Glee that she found in herself.

EXCUSE ME BUT IT WAS EVERYTHING SHE EVER WANTED AND SHE GAVE IT TO RACHEL. WHAT DOES THAT SAY TO YOU? IT SAYS THAT RACHEL’S HAPPINESS > EVERYTHING QUINN EVER WANTED. RACHEL’S HAPPINESS > THE ULTIMATE STATUS SYMBOL. RACHEL’S HAPPINESS > A LITTLE SOMETHING-SOMETHING. CAN WE JUST?

SERIOUSLY CAN WE?

Hi, Sophy! I'm curious - have you seen "Friends" and if so - did you liked it? It's probably the only show in which I love all of the main characters absolutely equally, rare case for me )))

I liked Friends! I didn’t really watch it when it was first airing so I’m not as much of a fan as Rin is, but I’ve probably seen most of the episodes just by catching reruns late at night or when I’m sick or on a plane or something.

I don’t know what kind of a pompous sour-faced black-hearted jerk wouldn’t like Friends????

I have a favourite, by the way, and it’s Monica.

Hello Sophy! I was wondering, did you and Rin listen to some more The Killers/Brandon Flower's songs after seeing Dianna in 'Just Another Girl'? Because I'd really like to know your opinions on the band :) I hope you are well, take care xx

Well… I didn’t. Such empty promises. Maybe I will now. WHAT SONGS SHOULD I LISTEN TO, FRIEND?

/Apologies if you’re a Captain Swan shipper, anon/ No need. ) Honestly I was tempted by the CapSwan gifs and watched OUAT up to 208 I think. The show is soo not my thing - too fairytale-ike, also too many cheeseness, though I liked Emma, Regina and Rampel -and 206 was great with all the Hook/Emma interactions. But then I've lost interest in the show and THEN I've seen your long detalized arguments about CS and realized I can unread what I've read ) So SC lost the appeal and I found better shows

Praise!
