and i can live inside my head
@todaydreambelievers - slightly belated meta from last week, 1x01.
“You might laugh because every time I sign my name I put a gold star after it, but it’s a metaphor, and metaphors are important. My gold stars are a metaphor for me being a star.
And just so we’re clear, I want to clear up that hateful rumor that I was the one who turned that closest case Sandy Ryerson in because he gave Hank Saunders the solo I deserved.”
The very first lines that Rachel speaks in Glee are 1., a voiceover directed at some imagined audience, and 2., not entirely true. This is interesting because Glee’s a show about performance (among other things). And in her bedroom, or walking down the hallway, by herself… Rachel doesn’t have an audience. But she’s desparately lonely. And so she imagines that she does.
