Technically, it was all Rachel’s fault. Although Kurt could probably find a reason or two for why everything in his life was eventually Rachel’s fault. This time, it could also have been construed as Finn’s fault, but Rachel was really at the center of the action.
The two of them came barreling into the choir room barely a week into Kurt’s senior year. Or rather, Rachel came barreling into the choir room, open laptop in hand, and Finn arrived in her wake.
“We have to watch this together,” she announced, dumping her laptop onto an open chair and turning to face the rest of the room. Blaine was out recovering from a lingering cold, but everyone else was already there, strung out on vending machine sugar and getting twitchier by the minute. “This video is actually mind blowing.”
“Rachel, you say that about kitten videos,” Artie said.
“Only when the kitten video in question is particularly noteworthy.”
“And the last time I took your advice about YouTube I ended up watching a video of Patti LuPone blowing her nose … on repeat.” Mercedes shuddered. Brit turned to pat her on the shoulder in sympathy.
