i think i knew i was gay when he did this

there are some ultimatums i wish i had made earlier. cut myself out of pictures long beforehand. my mother told me if someone ever gave me an ultimatum to just get out of there but i think she forgot there are good ones. 

like it’s me or it’s your hate of women. like i should have stopped talking to him long before then. but he was nice when he wasn’t making those jokes and i tried to tell him. he said they weren’t hurting anyone. but why did he think i was bringing it up, then? it didn’t matter. i was young. and.

like it’s me or you keep doing those little impressions of a gay man. like i knew she thought they were funny. and she said she was totally fine with gay people. i should have known then. when she found out about me she couldn’t stop laughing. of course, she cackled, while i held hands with my girlfriend, god i knew you were weird but this is “and then some.”

it’s me or your petty racism. it’s me or how you treat waitresses. it’s me or you keep being a terrible human. i believe in you and i think you can change but the question is will you. because when i told him it’s me or your anger, he chose his anger. there are people like that. who won’t change. who don’t care enough about you. there are times you have to realize - we are two incompatible humans and flawed and maybe one of us is right or we’re both wrong but it doesn’t matter because we just don’t belong. there’s no reconciling what we’ve lost. 

she said fine. it’s me or your goddamn feminist poetry. and i smiled. because that one was easy. i just wish she hadn’t waited to ask me.

Reaction to Yuri on Ice EP9

Episode 8 wasn’t as gay as episode 7 but I think episode 9 made up for that. 

The ending scene where Yuri was already in the airport made a lot of people hold their breath. I for one didn’t expect anyone to go to him in the airport because in episode 1 no one picked him up so I thought it would happen again. BUT NO! When I saw Maccachin I knew Victor was there!

When the Camera showed Victor he did not have the usually smile or happy aura around him. It was like he was in deep thought until Maccachin became excited by seeing Yuri. Vitor seemed like a totally different person when he was waiting, besides his happy aura he sort of looked like a mess. Not the drunken mess but the mess that involves a lot of thinking or even over analyzing. Was the separation for him that hard? 

Victor’s expression here looks so real, it was like you haven’t seen the one you loved in a long time and you don’t know what will happen with the two of you now that they are back. Compared to couples who could be having a long distant relationship and have been separated for years or months, Yuri and Victor have just been separated for 2 days and he is already so worried. I never thought I would see Victor with this much emotion, it felt so real.  

When they were running they didn’t break eye contact with each other. It can be seen that Yuri didn’t expect Victor to be there to pick him up but when he saw Victor it was like a dream come true, he really didn’t expect him to be there at all. The fact that they didn’t break eye contact was like they were so relieved that they can finally see each other again after being apart for so long (Which was only 2 days) . This scene alone really made it seem like it was happening in real life by just the emotion the viewer can feel. 

When Victor was waiting for him with his arms stretched out it was just like a scene from real life where you are waiting for your love ones. It really looked like Yuri was about to cry when he saw Victor waiting for him with his arms spread out. Victor looked like he was still dreaming and couldn’t believe that Yuri was finally back home.

The look in Yuri’s eyes were the look as if he couldn’t believe Victor was there. It really showed all the worry he had while being away from Victor. It was like all the emotions or feeling he has been keeping in since Victor left where now coming back up and making their way out of him. He had so much pent up feelings that it was about to burst but being in Victor’s arms seemed to make it all go away little by little. 

The look Vitor had here was like he was relieved with what Yuri requested. It was as if all the things he was worrying about and thinking about were all put at eased when Yuri asked him to be his coach until he retires. It was a huge weight of Victor’s chest because he was so confused on how to become a better coach to Yuri. 

Over all this episode had the most emotion in it. It may look like a regular episode but when this scene hits you it can’t help but make you really feel what they are feeling. It was like the scene was pulled out of a movie or a real life situation.

  • Mary’s stupid letter is so fake.
  • John is a Doctor. He should have been able to help Mary like he was able to help Sherlock. Like he did NOTHING. AT ALL. TSo3 showed he knew how to save someone almost dead. 
  • And that was such a ridiculously forced “anger at Sherlock”, the weird grunting. 
  • All the music is LITERALLY RECYCLED FROM Season 3. ALL OF IT.
  • What if this IS all part of a bigger plan we don’t know yet.
  • The camera angle at the end overlooking baker st is odd. Like we’re overlooking from someone’s POV.
  • Molly is being forced to do something she doesn’t want to.
  • I think John is trying to protect Sherlock from something, and thinks, like sherlock did, pushing him away is the best thing to do.
  • The weird water stuff and transitions. Gay, I know, but I feel like Sherlock may have been drowning at some point. I dunno.

I’ll add more when I think of more. I just rewatched once.

Stars and Boulevards by cherrystreet

Length: 6k

“Lou, hi,” he answers on the second ring.

“How did you know you were gay,” Louis asks, voice slurred. “Like, when did you know .”

Harry freezes, completely blind sided. He tries not to panic. “Um. I think I kind of always knew?”

“But how did you say it?”

“You were there, you remember.”

“Harry, seriously, I’m freaking out and you’re not helping.”

They’d been friends for years, had known each other throughout middle school and into high school, meeting in a music class on a sticky September morning. They hit it off instantly, falling into one another immediately, never looking back. Their friendship was comfortable, genuine, safe, always there, achingly present and solid. Harry never felt uneasy confiding in Louis, their one year age gap making Louis somehow seem more worldly, more experienced, and even when Harry had to look down at Louis, he still looked up to him. They spent the quickly passing school years making each other’s homes their own, Harry’s mom calling Louis her honorary second son, Louis’ mom giving Harry a similar title, and everyone knew that if you wanted to find Harry, you had to find Louis first.

“his short program costume this year is a departure from his traditional aesthetic, instead wearing a tie on his head and a disheveled suit. in response to criticism about his program, nikiforov has said ‘the right people will know what this is about,’ and 'they know what they did,’ and, 'i have videos. i have pictures. i hate to think that night was a lie, please call me.’”

when asked if this was a metaphor nikiforov replied that as long as the ‘metaphor’ called him back so he knew if he needed a visa or not, it could be anything it wanted to be. also, he didn’t mean to pressure it, but he hoped he got the ring size right.

Jim, Eurus and Sherlolly

I see a lot of people saying that Eurus knew Molly’s importance  to Sherlock whereas Jim discounted Molly (thanks to TRF). I don’t think that’s the case. Jim Moriarty probably knew Molly’s importance more than Sherlock himself. This goes way back to TGG lab scene.

The look Sherlock gives when Jim enters the lab is very telling. He’s more than a little irritated with Jim’s presence in the lab and in Molly’s life. (Yeah, ok the latter part is with my shipper goggles on). After this comes the whole “deduction” scene.

Here, Sherlock starts deducing Jim, says he’s gay but quickly changes it into a ‘Hey’ as Molly gets a bit upset with his gay comment. When did Sherlock Holmes stop his deductions just because Molly got upset ? I am pretty sure Jim noticed this. A lot of people think Sherlock is cruel to Molly in this scene by deducing “Jim from IT “ but Sherlock is actually being kind to Molly as he doesn’t want her to be hurt by Jim and starts his deductions only after Jim leaves. My point being, Jim most definitely noticed the change in Sherlock’s demeanour and made his own deduction, which is, Molly is not insignificant to Sherlock and he does care about Molly in his own “Sherlockian” way.

Then there’s the pool scene and Sherlock claiming he doesn’t have a ‘heart’ and Jim retorts with “We both know that’s not quite true” line. Jim knows that Sherlock cares about people even though he calls himself a sociopath. The lab scene is one such example.

I think Jim met Eurus somewhere after TGG and before TRF, and told her about what he plans to do with Sherlock. Maybe they discussed the possibility of Sherlock faking his death and Molly’s part in it. So, this could mean that Jim never really discounted Molly in TRF and she was always going to be a part of “The final Problem”. I always wondered why Jim didn’t consider the possibility of Sherlock asking Molly’s help, Jim is a genius in his own right and that thought must have crossed his mind. I think I know the answer now, he knew Molly’s importance and made sure that Eurus included her in TFP. John’s comment about Molly being able to see through Sherlock’s BS also helped Eurus in making her own deduction about Molly and Sherlock.

So what I am trying to say is Jim and Eurus knew Molly’s importance to Sherlock and played the game accordingly. Thanks for reading my long(ish) post.

P.S I love Jim Moriarty and can’t fathom that people are underestimating his genius.

The other day I was thinking about bare (tbh when am I not) and nadia’s line in All Grown Up “Did my brother break your heart? Cuz it sure broke mine when I found out he was seeing you” and then how in No Voice her lines “But I knew, I knew your way” and it hit me what she was talking about in All Grown Up was nothing to do with it being Ivy he was with and her perceived inferiority complex towards her and not wanting Jason to be with Ivy it was all about how it broke her heart to see Jason with a girl because she knew he was gay and it broke her heart to see him pretending to be straight when she knew it was hurting him and he was doing it for the sake of their parents and what he thought he should be

1) why has it taken me this long to realise this and;

2) ffs im sad now

ohfugecannada  asked:

head canon prompt: how would the each of the mercs react if Ms Pauling good them she's gay?

((So sorry for answering this late!!!!)) Haha, I remember when Admin Headshot and I talked about something like this. I just randomly proposed to her one day: WAIT what if all of the mercs already knew she’s gay EXCEPT for Scout (because he’s such a dense and egotistical noodle). So when he finds out, Scout flips a shit because wow he did not see this coming. And when he tries moaning how he never could’ve saw Miss P was gay, all of the other mercs are like: ‘Uhm but we already knew that buddy boy’. At that point Scout just feels insulted and left out. 

ANYWAYSIES, I’ll tell ya what I think would go down!!

  • Miss P tells Heavy before anyone else or even before Spy figures it out/gets any suspicions. Miss P and the Heavy both have an unsaid friendship with each other, where all they both really need is counting on the other to keep their secrets. Their friendship’s behind the scene, the quiet type, but they don’t need to talk and hang out all the time to confirm their bond
  • She’s a little nervous, though, when she decides to come out to Heavy.
  • And she dropped it pretty casually too like, “I think I like women. Like I really like like them. You know? They’re just more attractive okay”. Very awkward about it at first, because Miss P didn’t know how to properly express what she’s feeling or going through in words
  • Heavy’s chill with it and tells Pauling she doesn’t need to worry about it.
  • “Anybody who tries telling you otherwise gets leetle heads crushed by Heavy, da?”
  • “That’s an appreciated gesture, Mikhail.” 
  • She doesn’t think too much about it for a few more months, (after all with a job like hers, it doesn’t leave too much thinking for subjects concering a love/sex life) until she was hanging out with Spy (on a mission). They were at a fancy dinner party, and Miss Pauling just couldn’t help but stare and stumble and gawk at all the ladies at said party. Like goddamn they were all so pretty and good looking and nice to look at -
  • okay wait she might’ve said that out loud
  • Spy just shoots her a small and knowing smile, but they carry on with the mission
  • A little afterwards when they’re dumping bodies in the river, he says, “Pauling, just know there is no need to hide anything like who you are attracted to. It is useless to hide things from me, anyway.”
  • She tells Spy, a little bit more comfortable the second time, yeah she’s gay and he better keep his mouth shut about it or
  • “Pauling I won’t blackmail or blurt out this to anyone else. You are a valuable co-worker, whose company I happen to enjoy.”
  • “Oh good, Heavy was right.”
  • “Wait, you told Heavy before me?”
  • Honestly Spy’s salty over the fact Miss P told Heavy before him
  • But once again it’s all chill, Spy and Heavy have her back and don’t go around blabbering her secret
  • They both get really annoyed though, that Scout keeps on hitting on Pauling
  • Spy resists the urge many times to grab the boy by his ear and yell, “OPEN YOUR EYES SHE DOESN’T LIKE DICKS” but Spy is a classy man. So instead he passively aggressively harasses Scout - you know, the classy way
  • Meanwhile Pauling low-key knows Scout has a hopeless crush on her but she’s like, ‘eh i don’t have time to think or worry about this’ so she never gets around to confronting him or whatever 
  • When the rest of the team do find out - either by Miss P openly expressing her sexuality, coming out to them, or them figuring it out on their own, it’s all so chill chill chill (omg i’m abusing the word stop me)
  • Really why should they care, she doesn’t conform to the man-woman couple standards of their society - so what? They’re a ragtag team of foreign soldiers who participate in a way over worthless acres of land
  • Scout’s the last to find out. When Miss P is warned by Spy he’s planning on confessing, she finally decides it’s time to step in before he throws himself into something he didn’t quite think out
  • “Scout, it won’t work.”
  • “W-w-what won’t work -”
  • “You know the idea of us?” She shrugs. Scout just deflates, the guy looked so sad. Miss Pauling is quick to explain, “It’s not you, okay? I’m straight up not interested in men. Whatsoever. I like ladies just as much as you do, Scout.”
  • He’s confused as hell at first. She likes ladies? As in girls? As in women?
  • never would’ve seen her being gay a mile away, thank god she told him straight to the point
  • Takes a bit longer for Scout to understand
  • Mostly because he can’t let go of the long-time crush he had on Pauling
  • But even though Scout can be an cocky twat, he isn’t selfish. Even though he doesn’t truly get the concept of other sexualities and shmuck, this is Miss Pauling he’s talking about! She’s a cool friend, and he wouldn’t want to lose her 
  • Look, the mercs are her nine accepting and protective older brothers and I don’t think anything would change between them and Miss Pauling if she came out to them because they’re one big happy merc family damniT!!!!!
"I wish gays wouldn't hold hands in public, they make my children ask questions I don't want to answer!"

I don’t get why straight people think gay people are like Rubik’s cubes.

Like believe it or not, kids will totally get it.

My mom was like: “kira, there are men out there who fall in love with men-” and I was like “yeah I know.”

And then I told her to go away because I was reading a goosebumps.

I wasn’t even really told gay people existed, I just knew they did from osmosis and it was a fact like the ocean is salty, and the ground tastes bad.

my uncle came out as gay to my family when I was fourteen and my mom was like this is so weird, i can’t see him the same way.

But I really didn’t care?

I thought it was great, actually, cause I was really glad to find out that that guy he brought over all the time was his boyfriend and he wasn’t “single” like he always insisted at family gatherings.

So straight people complaining about gay people being confusing makes no sense.

I grew up in a secular but still conservative household.

I totally got gay people. Immediately.

About Sherlock not answering “I’m gay” to John with Irene’s text

This bothered me hugely when the episode aired - WHY DID SHERLOCK SIT THERE AND NOT OPENLY SAY - “You know why I did not answer her texts? I’m gay.”

Now after thinking about the episode for a few hours, here is the conclusion I’ve come to:

NUMBER ONE: Whether or not you reply to a TEXT MESSAGE, gender of the communication partner irrelevant, gives no indication of whether you like/hate/love this person. So why would Sherlock bother to answer?

NUMBER TWO: This whole moment was NOT about Sherlock, it was about John. And Sherlock very well knew that. Being the softest human being to John Watson recently, he would not DARE to come up with labels at that point. Maybe, labels are quite irrelevant to Sherlock all the way. But the most important thing here is: This whole scene was John letting go of Mary, to prepare him to move on. So I would not be surprised if the “Get the hell on with it” was the last time we’ve seen Mary within John’s imagination. It would not have done them both any good to have a discussion about sexual orientation at that moment because that was not what it was about. In retrospect, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Steven Moffat for (not) doing that.

NUMBER THREE: To quote Mark Gattis, “We’re not going to out a character JUST FOR THE SAKE OF IT.”

Do I think Sherlock Holmes is gay? YES. Do I think he will end up with John Watson? YES. Do I think this was one of the most perfect scenes ever written on BBC Sherlock? YES.

the poem that ginny did not write

Do you remember in COS when was Valentine’s day and harry received that valentine from ginny? Well, it was not ginny who wrote it. Why do I think so? 

“ (…)  I wish he was mine, he’s really divine, the hero who conquered the Dark Lord.“ That’s why. “The hero who conquered the Dark Lord.”  

Only the Death Eaters call Voldemort “the Dark Lord”. Or their children. 

Plus, Draco Malfoy was there when harry received the poem. And when that happened, he yelled at Ginny “I don’t think Potter liked your valentine much!“ and how did he know it was from ginny?? I think he didn’t know anything bc it was he who wrote it and it can be easily explained like a defense mechanism because he knew that harry didnt like the valentine at all and that hurt. Ginny never admitted that was she who wrote the poem, neither, and she was having lots of problems with the diary to have  time to write it

 And, well, let’s be honest, “ I wish he was mine” really sounds like something that Draco would say bc everybody knows he always wanted harry

anonymous asked:

when did you realize you were gay? (sorry if this is too personal just curious)

My earliest gay memory is when I was 12. A friend told me what porn was (he never said anything about gay porn) and when I got home I looked up gay porn instead of just porn for some reason. It was like I subconsciously knew that’s what I really wanted without thinking about it. I couldn’t believe what I was looking at but I could tell I liked it so. Y'know. That’s when I knew I liked men, but not when I knew I was gay. I denied it for years and grasped at straws to prove to myself I wasn’t gay. I’d force myself to masturbate to straight porn and push down any sexual thoughts about men. One time I had a dream about naked women (that was literally it. nothing else happened) and I woke up absolutely elated. That was enough for me I guess lol.

At some point I stop worrying about it altogether and never think about it. If anyone asked me what my sexuality is I’d just shrug. I didn’t want to think about it because I knew I wouldn’t be happy with the answer. This went on for years until I was 17 when I decided to say I was bi to make it easier for me and everyone else that had to ask. It was a cop-out. But I liked it because it meant I wasn’t gay. Today I’m sure that my attraction to women is infatuation more than anything else so I know I’m not bi, but I digress.

Maybe half a year later was when I came to terms with myself and truly came out of the closet. It’s kinda funny, saying I’m gay to myself and everyone else in my life feels liberating. I’d been worried about it for years but when it finally came time it felt great. I’m happy I got it figured out.

This post is too long. tl;dr I knew I had some homosexual stuff going on when I was 12 but I didn’t accept it until I was 17. I hope your day goes ok

  • How I entered/learned about the said game/show/movie/etc of that fandom

I saw I couple of promo pics on my dash that seemed hilarious and cute. When I read that it was a magical boys show I knew I had to check that out if only for the promise of gay. I started watching when ep 2 was already out and both, heros and villains, where so entertaining to watch that I kept on going thinking it was something fun to pass time.

I was so wrong.

  • Fave character

Akoya Gero. Words cannot explain how much I love this fabulous cupcake and, despite how minimal his participation in S2 was, all canons combined I think he has had some great development from the jerk bitch to the dramatic sweetheart that actually gets things done.

He is closely followed by Ibushi and Kinshirou on my list tho.

  • Least fave character

The twins. I had many moments in which I thought I could like them, and hell, I did try to like them. But the thing is… there’s not much to them. For all the screen time they got, real and sustantional development for them never happened. Even their sobbackstory of bullying is unoriginal for the show. 

Without Gora, they have no motivation nor reason, even the insinuation of their tragic idol life was unimportant compared to their obsession with this man. They are assholes and ok, yeah, I can like an asshole. But even that got taken from them with that rushed, half-baked redemption. They never showed regret and really, what was their reason to want to be friends with the gang again? They couldn’t care less about the DC (and the feeling is mutual), and they don’t even know who the hell the SC are (again, mutual).

Not to mention their individual personalities are just salty and slightly-less-salty.

  • OTP(s)

Akorima!! I’m trash and I’ll gladly go to Hell and stay there for this ship. It’s just the right combo of personalities and subtlety for me and I will stop here or this post is going to be way longer than it already is.

  • Pairing that everyone likes but I don’t get

I wouldn’t say “everyone” likes, but Beppuyumo. I can understand the “they can be good for each other”, but not as it is right now. Because at no point the twins have said that they no longer hate Yumoto and tbh I’d be disappointed on this boy if he just wanted to be bffs with them after all their unapologetic crap. That’s Spongebob levels of naïveté.

My notp is Akoio actually (because that I can’t see happening in a thousand years, unlike the first one), but I hardly see anything of that anymore, so even further away from Everyone Likes.

  • Fave thing about the fandom

Just how good it is at keeping it welcoming for everybody. Yes, it’s not perfect nor completely drama-free, but everybody does their best to be nice to each other.

  • The most despised thing

Only the fact that it never got its former glory back after S2, so it is just as small and quiet as it was during the in-between seasons time.

  • If there is something I would change from said game/show/movie/etc., what would it be

Season Two. Way too many things to name them all here, but basically development for the boys. All the boys. 

#242 I could know him by touch alone…

So the fandom got me thinking, what if patroclus and achilles did get a second chance?

I mean, heroes and even mundanes can reborn if they wanted to, and i couldn’t possibly imagine one going back to life without the other, so….what if they both came back… but Achilles was held captive for 70 years, what if Patroclus never found him, and went weary to be reborn… afraid not to find him again, but then, he’d knew him no matter what. So he decided to try again, for him.

What if Patroclus was named William Solace, and when Achilles got freed from his captivity, what if he found his true mate? What if that tiny gay italian was Achilles? and both of them were fated from the very start. I mean, will remembered Nico from day 1, overly excited geek boy, and he wasn’t the slightlest worried about approaching him when he came back as the dark overlord of all that is dead…. What if they got their second chance. What if they can be happy now?
Sorry, i just had a lot of feels.

Kushina: “Heyyy we should totally get naked and do things to each other. >;3″

Minato: (thinking) “shit shit shit I have no idea how to please a woman the Academy didn’t prepare me for this whyyyy did I tune out Jiraiya-sensei when he talked about this kind of stuff T_T”

Luckily Kushina knew how to take the lead and it all turned out hunky dory with plenty of Os for all! *Gai-sensei thumbs up*

Whenever I'm sad I like to think about Sirius realizing he's gay as hell????

So he’s sitting in the great hall, and James and Peter were next to him. Remus was in the hospital wing after a terrible transformation, and he was worried about him as usual. It was just a regular day, and nothing prepared the two when Sirius just looked straight at them and said

“I’m gay”

He felt so wonderful finally saying it out loud. He’d know he was for the longest time, but didn’t want to say. Now that he said it out loud to his two best mates, it didn’t seem so bad anymore. James was super supportive and liked to joke around about it, and Peter was just an idiot so no one knows what he did. It was probably something stupid.

“Well it’s about time you told us, I knew you and Moony were hooking up every night,” James laughed. Sirius was flabbergasted.

“Prongs- I.. What the hell do you mean?” He couldn’t believe what he just heard.

“Next time, if you don’t want anyone to know, I’d suggest a silencing charm.” He grinned.

I Would Rather Go Naked Then Wear The Coat The World Has Made For Me

When I was born, I left the hospital in a pink hat. It matched my pink dress and pink socks and the rest of the gender roles that have been shoved down my throat since the day I came into the world.

When I was four, my brother was born. Why did he get to wear the clothes with trucks and sports on them and I didn’t?

When I was six, my mom told me that sometimes, princesses married princesses and princes married princes and even though some evil step mothers might not say its ok, the fairy godmothers say that it’s fine.

When I was nine I went to my cousin Elizabeth’s wedding, where she married her wife, Clare. I think that day it clicked. When I got married, I knew that there wasn’t going to be a prince waiting for me, because this princess was going to end up with another princess.

When I was eleven, I realized that the media’s version of diversity was a gay white man.

When I was thirteen, I learned about sex. But wondered why we only learned about sex between a man and a woman. Because something told me I wouldn’t really ever need to know this in the future.

When I was fifteen, I read the quote “I would rather go naked than wear the coat the world has made for me.” And that was the moment I began living my best me. That year I learned two things. That hiding who I was was only hurting me, and that no one cared if you shopped in the men’s section, because their shoes will always fit your feet better and their t shirts will make you feel just as confident of not more than a shirt whose tag said it was strictly for women.

When I was sixteen, I came out as a Lesbian.

Now that I’m seventeen, I’m starting to think about the future.

-Which states have anti- discrimination laws because I need to make sure that wherever move to for college or to start a family protects me and doesn’t deny me my right to a job or housing based on who I am. And so far, there is only twenty states I can safely move to. Currently, 77 countries criminalize homosexuality. 5 of them result in the death penalty.

-In 2016, so, so many people in the LGBTQ+ community have been murdered, and their killers have walked away with no consequences. Will I become one of these statistics?

-How can I spread advocacy for people who are demi- girl, genderqueer, inersex, pansexual exa.? Because these aren’t just made-up words, these words are just trying to get the attention they deserve.

Soon I’m going to be eighteen. I’m going to keep fighting for the rights that me, and so many others deserve. Because this spark isn’t going to do is burn out.

  • Ulrich: Chris’s story, everyone’s heard. He was 18, his father drove him up. I’d never met him. There wasn’t a role for him, which everybody knows. He said one word and sang one sentence, and I said, “Oh my gosh.” I took him to Ryan. To think there was no gay character on Glee is bizarre.
  • Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel): I remember getting an audition for a new Ryan Murphy show, and I was super excited because I was obsessed with Nip/Tuck. I wasn’t actually allowed to watch it, so it was the closest thing to an adolescent rebellious phase that I had — then I read the script for Glee, and immediately fell in love with it. I was a performing arts kid and grew up in a community theatre, I was ecstatic someone was making a show about kids like me. I wasn’t surprised when it blew up like it did: I always knew it had an audience. The big surprise was that I was a part of it.
