never glee

can we talk about phil’s “i spent the majority of 2016 with another person” comment?

i know this has been discussed to the death but like…after a day of extreme stress and hitting obstacle after obstacle (remember how they thought they wouldn’t be able to perform the internet is here since dan lost his voice?), the world suddenly opens up and hands phil this–the highest of all highs, the greatest honor of the night. creator of the year. but he’s so utterly selfless that he can’t just not mention the man who’s stood so solidly by him throughout those past 11 months, not to mention the past 7 years. phil’s finally being recognized for the thing he’s put his heart and soul into for 10 years, for something that was once a hobby, then just the tail of a dream, and now it’s his entire life but still some people don’t understand how it’s actually a job?? he may have achieved so much, but it’s still an uphill climb.

and yet. and yet he chooses to share the award he so rightly deserves with that boy who left comment after comment, tweet after tweet, endless notes of encouragement until phil finally chose to take the plunge and talk to him. dan may or may not know it, but phil probably saw those comments before he ever really interacted with dan and they may have been some of the only things keeping him going when he may have wanted to quit. but in replying to dan, he opened up a new world for the both of them, a world of uncharted paths and slippery terrain, but he couldn’t have found a better person to cross those deep dark oceans with. phil’s built his life around dan. and he can’t even imagine not sharing this award with him because dan has been just as integral to his youtube career as he has been to dan’s. and you know what? i think that’s absolutely beautiful.

I wrote about this on Facebook and have seen a lot of references to it elsewhere but I just think for archival purposes I might as well write it down here: Trump is a puppet and Republicans of all stripes are desperately scrambling to force through as much absolutely repugnant shit as they possibly can, so that when his downfall comes (and someone, somewhere, probably has a careful plan for how to bring that about, and maybe even a schedule; impeachment most likely, and they’ll drag it out but let it happen), they can disavow everything terrible that happens, and spend just long enough dragging their feet on “repairing” all the “damage” he did (and it was all him! all on his own! he and his people! such rogues!) that the things they wanted will still happen, the people who were getting paid off for various corporate deals can still cash out, the assets can still get stripped out of the various government agencies, the outrage can burn itself out a bit, hopefully the few thousand sickest and most expensive patients stripped of healthcare will up and die already, the most annoying activists can get declared felons, a good collection of undesireables can get rounded up and deported or whatever, it’s all to the good even if it’s morally and legally indefensible. 

But by the time midterms roll around, they can all pin the blame for everything terrible that has happened on Trump, and campaign for re-election and maybe even swing some *more* seats red because of the terrible consequences of the things they pushed through. They were helpless, you see. It was all that horrible man’s fault.

So. I’m thinking maybe we need to spend a little less energy frantically protesting everything he does, and a little more energy carefully taking note of just who wrote each of those executive orders, who the authors of those bills were, and who, especially among the Democrats, collaborated. 

Take note of your Republican reps’ actions, and write to them and tell them that you see what they’re doing, and when Trump falls you’re not going to let them blame it on him; you see what their actual actions were in this ridiculous and confusing time, and you’re not going to fall for it.

Take note of your collaborators and write to them and tell them you’ll be backing a primary challenger against them in the next elections, if they’re Democrats. 

We surely need to be planning for 2018, and these are the first steps for that. This is all meant to be overwhelming and distracting. Look to the long view. There’s not much more we can do in the short view– obstructionism is the only way to minimize the damage before Trump is eliminated. 

(And, of course, keep the pressure up so that he does actually get eliminated.) 

anyway amber riley is basically the lead role in dreamgirls and reviewers love her after glee tried to just make her their token belter, harry finally gets to actually show off his acting chops and say more than 3 words in shadowhunters and is wonderful and also loved as magnus

i played the long game with my faves and won, thanks, suck it ryan murphy

So I was thinking (which is never a good thing…) about some Malec stuff, and I realized that this whole time, I was guilty of thinking that Harry looked… stiff? while kissing Matt. Turns out it’s literally just the way he kisses people other than Shelby I’m guessing, so with that in mind, here’s a few more things to think about:

  • Alec is inexperienced! He probably never kissed anyone before.
  • Magnus hasn’t initiated any of the kisses thus far, and no, you can’t count the “sleeping beauty” one.
  • This is Magnus’ first time opening up to someone in a very long time!
  • Malec haven’t been together for that long, so that’s probably why the last kiss from 2x07 looked a bit different from the other ones.
  • The way Malec kiss is pretty similar to how Mike/Tina did in Glee, here’s a video, so you could stop calling him homophobic because supposedly he’s “refusing to kiss another guy”…
  • Just… simply wait for the next episode before you start judging them please??

So, instead of a ‘Reaper comforting Geno’ fic, I wrote a ‘Geno comforts Reaper’ fic. It’s starts off a little angsty, but after the whole hurt/comfort scene it turns super fluffy. If ya read it, well, I hope you like it!

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: why didnt faberry ever happen? quinn was obviously so in love with rachel. in season one, theres a shot of quinn drawing an ugly drawing of rachel and yet she adds hearts around it? rachel always looked out for quinn, especially during the pregnancy. she gave away a pair of her panties just so the school paper wouldnt write about quinn being pregnant. in season two, in the scene at prom where quinn slaps rachel across the face, she feels so sorry afterwards. and even though shes just besn slapped, rachel wipes away quinns tears and holds her hand. like what the hell? when rachel wants to get her nose job, quinn is the only one who takes her seriously. shes the one who goes with rachel to the plastic surgeon and is supportive of rachel's decision. plus, it was quinn's nose that rahcel wanted. and in season three, quinn says the words "you were singing to finn, and only finn, right?" like she wants rachel to be singing to someone else, ie, her. how gay can you be quinn fabray? and quinn is so adamant about not wanting rachel to marry finn. she tells rachel that shes a star and doesnt need to hang onto the boys in high school, that she needs to let go and be her own person. quinn is the only person who truly recognizes rachels talents and capabilities and appreciates her drive and ambition. plus, quinn gives rachel metro passes so that the two of them can keep in touch. after giving her the passes, the two hug, and the pain in quinn's eyes is so clear. her gay little heart was in love with rachel throughout the entire series and yet it was never explored.
