Thank you for filling my heart with joy, for making me laugh out loud, and for keeping me smiling with the biggest grin.
Thank you for opening up a whole world of music that I had never heard of before, for inspiring me to return to something I loved to do, and for continuing to make show tunes cool.
Thank you for creating believable characters whose journeys we wanted to follow, for representing the beautiful rainbow of society on screen, and for showing me the first true representation of someone like me in mainstream culture.
You simultaneously broke and mended my heart with the tribute episode to Cory/Finn. You helped the community grieve and say goodbye properly.
I was never much of cryer until you came along.
My watching of the final episodes tonight was no exception. It was the perfect return to the funny, dry and quick-witted humour that the fandom fell in love with, complete with beautiful salutes to friends old and new.
Glee will forever hold a special place in my heart; not just as a TV show, but as a home.
I cried because it was over.
I smiled because it happened.
Thank you and farewell.
