Magnificent Obsession

I love Glee like a teenager. I think Darren Criss is one of the most talented people around.

You are what you love.
And not what loves you back.

I know it's too far down
And much too high to climb
But why can't we bring it on back to once upon a time?

THIS IS MY FAVORITE TWITTER INTERACTION OF ALL TIME

(via iamaang)

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to.”

One day this will be: “Anderson-Hummels! Anderson-Hummels!” as Blaine tries to lead his and Kurt’s as yet barely upright children in a rousing chorus of ‘The Itsy Bitsy Spider.’

The Proust Questionnaire | Daniel Radcliffe
What is your idea of perfect happiness?Eating breakfast foods at a time of the day other than breakfast. Pancakes for dinner—I’m happy.
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself? My ability to invariably say exactly the wrong thing in any given situation.
What is your motto? “Don’t be a dick.”

I love DRad.

While I love your post and would find it perfect with nearly any other show, all Glee knows is breakups, cheating, and smushing people back together later when enough time has passed they got bored again.

What can I say, anon? Hope springs eternal.

What gives me hope in this instance (aside from the sheer strength of my optimism) is that the conflict we’ve seen in the last couple of episodes has been, in my opinion, completely realistic and stemming from THE CHARACTERS THEMSELVES. It’s drama and angst, yes, but I believe it based on these (fictional) people I have come to know and love. It doesn’t feel like manufactured drama for its own sake, it feels like two young people fumbling as they try to grow up. The things they’re struggling with aren’t generic, they’re specific to each of their strengths and weaknesses and, yes, core wounds.

Look, I’ve been watching the same show as you have for the last five years. I’m fully aware that the writers could kick us in the collective shins and run away cackling.

But I’m still here, trusting in the long game of the story. I have faith in the happy ending. Am I going to want to scream and rip my hair out and throw things at the TV between now and then? It’s entirely possible. Alas, I still don’t have any say in how the show is written.

But god, when it gets it right, it gets it SO SO SO right.

Love everything about this.
