I can’t stop thinking about the fact that I got to watch the entire Monchele love story unfold. I saw Cory and Lea meet and falling in love, everyone encouraging them to be together because we clearly saw the spark and that there was something special between them. I saw them sneaking around and freaked out over the tweets of sightings and lea talking about the tall, handsome, Canadian with the tribal arm band. I saved all the photos of them holding hands shopping, at airports, at the amazing Canuks match, and cried when Cory said “of course” when Ellen asked if they were a couple. I paused and rewatched all the interviews of Cory lovingly rubbing her leg and Lea looking up at him with her eyes GLOWING. I took very fond note of everytime they uttered the words ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend’. And I mourned with Lea when we lost him. I genuinely got to watch two people I adore fall in love and experience a love story. I watched a couple form based upon true love, and I watched a woman pick herself up and carry him in her heart everywhere she goes. I am so thankful that Cory Monteith and Lea Michele loved each other and allowed me to be a part of that.
Rory: Would you be my friend, Finn?
Finn: Whoa, whoa.
Rory: It would be an honor.
Finn: In America, dudes don’t ask dudes to be their friends. Well, except on Facebook, but even that could take years.

“Come here. This is how it’s going to happen. I’m going to be quarterback again and I’m going to throw a touchdown in our first game. Then I’m going to point to you in the stands so that everyone in this school knows that you’re my girlfriend. All right?”
