I realized I'm possibly really behind on Modern Family. I don't know how to do TV anymore. Okay, so tonight, I shall cook dinner and watch Top Chef, pretend I'm totally going to do laundry, and likely I will not accomplish any of this and crawl into my bed and fall asleep.

Highway into the danger zone.

I also can't write for shit which is making me mad as there's this short fic I want to do and every word I try to write doesn't do a damn thing. UGH. I hate feeling like this.

I'd ask for prompts but they'd just be for like, Glee fic ideas and only be about Blaine, Kurt, Santana, and Brittany, AKA Team Characters Who Deserve Better Storylines, Oh my god, I'm so sorry about your year long arc conclusion, Santana.

And with that comment, a brief and totally not a rant about the latest episode of Glee.

No, Finn. It's not about you. It's not about how she's the first girl you fucked because you were Sad that Rachel was dating someone else or how you heard about a kid who committed suicide (wow, Glee, fuck you for bringing up that child's death). Santana's decision to deal with the ramifications about being publicly outed are NOT. ABOUT. YOU.

After Mash Off, which I saw a week later than everyone else, and I thought was pretty great, this episode was even worse than imagined. Santana had no agency in the story of dealing with coming out (and again: PUBLICLY). At no point was there a conversation between Santana and Brittany, who are now officially a couple, about Santana dealing with any of this.

Kurt lost the election, yes, and Burt won his (a huge win that barely registered), but you know, Glee, you don't realize what you did in having Brittany win: a bisexual girl dating another girl just won the student election. Because you're not interested in telling that story, so what we get are: lulz that ditzy Brittany, giving people pixie sticks.

If Glee ever gets around to not joking about the fact that Brittany is a bisexual girl, I'm going to probably wind up punching myself in the face because I bet they'll manage to be even more offensive than this fucking episode.

I can't talk about the Puck+Shelby+Quinn stuff. I just CAN'T.

Also using the "I'd rather fuck [insert gross thing]" joke to show how sexually undesirable a woman is? WOW, Glee. Fucking. Wow. Not only is Quinn one of them crazy woman but she's not worthy of sex from such a wonderful person such as Puck. Truly, she is unworthy of the guy that still fucking refuses to practice safe sex.

I really liked the Perfect duet, Blaine's face, Kurt's face (but not that final poncho), Kurt's knees, Santana's face, the times when Brittany and Santana were allowed to interact (a cheek kiss behind Jacob Ben Skeeze for fuck's sake), Sugar Motta's everything, and Santana's scene with her grandma.

I was really shocked that so many people on Tumblr were stunned by Grandma Lopez's reaction. The actress is probably a couple of decades younger than my own grandma but um, that was pretty authentic, those words she said to Santana, how to say "it" out loud is what brings shame upon the family and how dare Santana make her feel uncomfortable.

But maybe not all of you have had a screaming, crying fight with your grandmother in front of a relative's house the day after Christmas. Really, you're totally missing out. :-(

(It drama, and I'm over it now. Kind of.)

So the episode sucked hardcore and maybe next week will be better. This fuckin' show. The fandom is pretty lolzy at times, at least? Plus I really do like the characters (well, Finn and Puck are officially on my shit list) and the actors seem like pretty earnest people. SIGH. In it until I ain't, I guess.

OMG, I also called them out on that "it gets better" reference. NOPE. YOU DID NOT EARN THAT, WRITERS. There was a really good discussion about the outing on HDJM last ep, and I got my ass handed to me (very very cordially) and it was amazing.

There was a HUGE LACK OF GIRLS in this episode about girl power.

I'm glad I missed the Tumblr drama. This was a brand new writer for this episode, so I AM HOPING they get their shit together. *does not hold her breath*

- Just because Santana is now out-ish, doesn't mean Brittany is suddenly about monogamy. Santana tries to sort out her feelings about this topic to Kurt and/or Blaine which leads to the boys discussing their own presumed monogamy and whatever it is they actually want for themselves.

- Santana feels like maybe she should try to meet, or maybe even date, girls other than Brittany. But how, when you're a femme head cheerleader do you convince other girls you are totally playing for their team. She asks Blaine for advice. It's sort of a bucket of fail. Kurt laughs.

Brittany wants to double date with Kurt and Blaine, Santana and Kurt have some reservations about spending an extended amount of time voluntarily in close quarters with each other, Blaine forgets to leave off his bowtie which delights Santana because she'd made a whole new list of bow-tie related insults (tempered down to a won't-make-him-cry-promise level for the sake of Brittany who really does want to have a nice time).

Y'know we can have another writing party! Since I, joy of all joys, am trying to finish this soccer fic up tonight, and will soon have to work on my (incredibly ridiculous) prompt for yuletide and the ten billion christmas card fics I'm signing myself up to do tomorrow!

silly fluffy prompt

I am highly medicated so I can only leave you non serious prompts.

Win win.

Santana thought Blaine was just making up the fact he and Kurt sing Perfect in the car to each other until she sees them singing something equally as cheesy and being really obnoxious when they think no one is watching.

Blaine whining to Kurt about how he likes his bow ties after Santana calls them hideous. Kurt shows Blaine he likes them too.

Because I'm a sappy bitch...

Kurt, Blaine, Santana, Brittany. All curled up, puppy pile style in somebodies bed, watching something stupid (kids shows, cooking shows idk) talking around their vast pile of extraneous issues but feeling like they are all gaining something good from just being with each other without any pressure or expectation of any sort.

In fact, you said it so well, that I disagree with your stated inability to write/be interesting. You wrote SOMTHIN' darnit.

I haven't watched Glee this year. I don't really know how that happened, I just know that when it came back, I wasn't ready to deal with all the crazy and the inconsistent. Last night, I watched for the first time this year. WHAT AN UNFORTUNATE COINCIDENCE. I thought there was a lot of epic fail. And I still hate Finn a lot.

The whole episode was just so whacked, I don't understand how the writers don't notice how offensive the episode was going to be. I hate that Brittany had no presence in the story except for the LOL funny presidential campaigns and the new writers don't seem to know how to write her which is a shame when during the last half of season 2 they finally struck a right balance for her. And how they suddenly switched up Brittany's campaign from girl power to hurricanes.

I hate how the storyline was all about Finn and how he completely railroads Santana, the only moment the episode felt true was during Santana's scene with her grandmother.

I feel the same way about this episode, urgh. Much like Finn, it had good intentions, but well-meaning or not, it managed to be incredibly frustrating and painfully insensitive all the same.

I'd like to prompt Kurt rehearsing for a fun number with Brit and Santana. OR Kurt & Brittany and Santana & Blaine getting paired up for a assignment. What they have to sing is completely out of everyone's comfort zone and a bit of a nightmare, but they manage to do so successfully and a lot of ridiculously endearing interaction happens as they try to work it out.

Also, to jump in the discussion: I don't want to defend the writers for their inability to give Brittana a proper arc with good development, but quite frankly? I think Heather Morris does a lot of things very well, but serious, emotional material is not something she's equiped to handle, unlike Naya who's been consistently good to great throughout the arc. So that is probably one reason why Brit won't quite graduate from comic-relief-who-ocassionally-makes-insightful-comments, and as frustrating as it is for us, it might actually be for the best.

They still have no excuse for not letting the girls kiss, though.
