devonwood asked: What's your favorite fic you've written that didn't get as much love from fandom as you wished it would have?

wordplaying:

Oh god, I have no idea!

Um, ironically? It’s probably the Oberlin AU. And that is nobody’s fault but my own, for not really building it out the way I wanted to; I mean, I think the first part stands on its own, but there’s this whole thing sketched out in notes where they spend a winter term holed up in a drafty attic apartment and I just… oh man, it feels like comfort and healing to me. 

Only, you know: nobody ever saw that. :-P In general it’s a story that I feel like most people forgot ever even existed, if they ever even knew about it - which is probably why I was so tickled to get that last ask.

I *really* love the Oberlin AU, and looked for more for a long time. Perhaps it was based in a moment that passed in the current canon, but to me that’s what’s interesting (or at least the most interesting thing) about AUs. I certainly relate more to narratives less about the particular shade of ambition shared by a lot of glee’s prominent characters—but a great AU is a fabulous find, and it would be even more so to see more.

This is a glee version appreciation post.

Listening to the music, as one does during data entry.

"I Have Nothing" makes me ache, and hope.

Yesterday, “How Will I Know” took me by surprise all over again—gorgeous.

In other words, two years later, music from the Whitney episode still holds up—they doesn’t always, but with such output, there’s always going to be some duds.  And, of course, their ethics/creative attribution should be more considered, but… 

FTH.

Y’ALL, a magical holiday called THANKSGIVUKKAH is happening this year on November 28, and it won’t happen again for 70,000 years. So we figured a huge amount of delicious food was in order. Here are all the recipes you need to throw your own Judeo-Pilgrim feast. 

This is brilliant and every recipe looks amazing.

(Tanner recipe-tested the cranberry apple sauce. I can attest to its deliciousness. The leftovers go well on yogurt.)

(The leftover Manischewitz is another story.)

That kugel might be a noodle kugel I can get behind.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m so excited to make the pecan pie rugleach, you guys.

This all looks so delicious!  Too bad there’s less of a chance of me changing the menu for thanksgiving in my family than a meteor wiping us all out before Thanksgiving even comes around.  (Despite our Jewish connections, even…)

Who was unspoiled?  I want to go camp and watch their reactions…

Me, mostly.  So much to say—Klaine always gets so little screen time that I thought the getting back together was all we’d get, and was glad that we got some meaningful canon dialogue about what went wrong  oh wait, I thought there was a little, but just saw the scene again, and not so much.  Would’ve been satisfied with just that scene, because it’s a great duet, lovely, and pretty hot, and I feel like it was definitely time  for the reunion.  Still not convinced that engagement at this juncture is the best idea for them, but it was handled expertly and Kurt obviously had at least some time to decide (though, so shortly after a reunion and with the big production, were any other options really there?).  I didn’t realize until this episode that I’d even lost a little faith that these crazy kids could make it after all, and this was the perfect antidote.

Plus, the last couple months have been  difficult for fans of Glee, the whole episode was one of those where the name is appropo, and it was badly needed.

Re: wardrobe, Not sure whether they were having Klaine wear spring-y colors to convey rebirth/renewal, that it’s still spring in the Glee-verse, or some combo thereof.  It didn’t seem like everyone was dressed in spring colors, but the boys ARE more fashion forward than most of the others. ;-P

Loved the kisses, especially the first, though t was strangely off center again—I wonder if they do this so we can see a bit of both faces, or at least more of Kurt this time, during? 

Side note—If I’d been Blaine, there would be no way for me to focus on the number with Kurt in those pants.  Not sure about the whole outfit all together, but definitely distracting in a good way.
