making my way downtown oh my fucking god where am i
Ain’t no big deal
This song came on shuffle and I figured out why I like the Glee cover so much. I figured this was the appropriate forum to spew my feelings!
Don’t get me wrong, I like Casual Onset Bisexuality in a lot of contexts where my fellow bicorns are offended, but this cover isn’t really about titillation or two-faced clueless exploration or duplicitous cheating. I feel safe when I listen to Santana and Rachel sing about kissing girls. I feel so safe every time I watch this show. It centers me and that’s pretty amazing.
This episode and song and story line and show are about making Santana - and Brittany and Kurt and Rachel and all of them - safer and happier. It’s a hugbox, but it has genuine weight. The girls form a bodyguard around Santana and let her sing all the emotional lines in a trashy lesbian song that they’re reclaiming. This isn’t a heartfelt ballad, but Santana can’t afford to dreamily drift down the hallways right now. She has to make it to the choir room and keep singingto her friends’ camera phones.
And Rachel has two gay dads and directly points at and informs her boyfriend that she hopes he don’t mind it and WHAT A GREAT SHOW.
This cover is a victory, it’s a reclamation, it’s actual safe exploration between friends. I love it.
"Christmas Eve with You" is SO CUTE, I love Will and Emma unironically singing about Rudolph.
Also, it matches really well with “Still Got Tonight”, somehow??? The eternal magic of the Glee crew. Of course, Will and Emma never sing their only original song out loud on the show. Will can’t until he takes a break from Lima in season 4 and the first time Emma really, truly sings for herself, she runs from her wedding.
AU in which teenaged Will goes to school with Santana and writes this song for her because he sees how cold the world is to her.
why is frozen still relevant i’m so tired of hearing about it lets talk about wreck it ralph instead which was better in every way
I mightily want to end my essay with the following sentence:
The relationships between indigenous inhabitants and colonial settlers and the roles they played for one another were often detrimental for Natives, but there were moments of gold and flashes of light.
My tastes regarding this show - and media in general - are as follows: I’m not here for hating the writers and production staff; I don’t do creepy RPF; I think people who sneer at heroes are idiots; Emma Swan is my forever love; and Rumplestiltskin bores me.
ETA: ALSO, I’m okay with ‘shipping feels all over my dash so long as we don’t throw David/Mary Margaret under the bus or privilege the serial killers above the actual heroes. :-)
i remember when glee was at the height of its popularity and everyone was whining that now there would be TONS of tv musicals EVERYWHERE
disappointed it didn’t happen tbh
