What's up, flist?
I'm not up to much, really. Trying to finish writing all of these WIPs I've got in my folder, as well as preparing myself mentally for when school starts again this Monday.
However, I have had certain ~thoughts~ about a certain girl named Fabray lately:
There's a homo explosion happening all over that girl!!!
Ahem. So, allow me to completely rewrite the entire first season of Glee
Meet Quinn Fabray.
Snarky art-loving girl who just happens to be the only other out person at McKinley High besides Kurt Hummel. After helping him climb out of a dumpster one day, the two of them bond over being ~fabulous~ in a place where no one seems to appreciate that particular quality for some reason. Although they basically don't agree on anything from fashion to music, they still got each others back if anything particular nasty should happen. It becomes a sort of silent agreement between them.
She lives together with her mother; her parents divorced a year prior to season 1. The relationship between Quinn and her mother is strained, but Judy tries to be as good a mother as she can, although it isn't easy. Her daughter can be incredibly stubborn when she wants to be.
Quinn strikes up a tentative friendship with Santana, captain of the Cheerios, and Brittany mid-season, seeing as Santana is struggling with her own sexuality and the prospect of having someone else to talk to about it is something Santana grudgingly needs. To her delight, the black-haired girl finds someone else who she can check out Cheerios' behinds together with.
Quinn eventually joins the Glee club, mostly because she was initially under the impression she could sneak off and have a smoke under the bleachers with no problem during class, but no such luck. She uses her time reading books and making snide remarks instead (~le gasp~, so different from canon!Quinn, I know!), although she has a tendency to be unashamedly flirty when it comes to Rachel; it's worth it, just to see her and Finn's reactions.
Besides, it's not like she has a *crush* on Berry or anything...
Nope, not at all.
And that's what you missed on the Queer Fabray Show, erh, I mean -- Glee!

. These are kind of awesome. Check 'em out.
- Vid recs:
• Hook Shot (multi)
: as the summary says, female BAMFs for the win. I couldn't agree more.
• Come On
[Firefly/Serenity] : this vid makes me wanna rewatch the series.
• Whenever, Wherever
[Twilight, Jacob/Edward] : no, seriously, watch it. If it doesn't make you crack a smile or make you laugh, then... I don't know. You have no sense of humor. ;P
