First year college students tend to stay in dorms, right? So it’s two beds, in the one room? Is that usual? And they a bathroom?
Two beds to a room often, but it can also change depending on the building/university. There could be larger suites with room for four (four singles or one double and two singles) with an attached bathroom or a general bathroom out in the hall. Or, if you pay more, a single which may or may not have a bathroom attached depending on the building you’re in. I was in a dorm that used to be for grad student couples, so they had one bedroom, one living room, a bathroom and a small kitchen space for two people. Small, but pretty much like an apartment.
Why do some singers sing their names at the beginning of songs? I understand when it’s a collaboration, it can be like a talky introduction thing for each other, but otherwise, why? Are they in danger of forgetting their names midway through the piece?
Why does Pitbull ruin perfectly fun catchy dance-floor songs by, well, being in them? Wanna be your gyno not your doctor, seriously? >:(
What’s the deal with the puppy!Blaine and kitty!Kurt trope? It can be pretty cute, but is there some fic/series that started it all off?
Why is it Monday and why can’t I go home and draw?
This is a little silly but I saw this image (not mine) and I made this for Narie from it. I now have a nice blank photoshop template for it, so, if you need your own custom message with Darren nudging you into doing important things, let me know! I’ll see what I can fit in there :)
So I’m gonna express an opinion now. This screen cap is relevant. And I’m feeling more annoyed than usual so it’s going to be a little stronger than I will no doubt feel about the same issue come tomorrow.
Reblogging for the tags as well as because I agree so hard. I’ve read stories where Mercedes is shown as a horribly awful friend and Puck and Santana are Kurt’s biggest chums. I mean, WHAT? That’s obviously completely OOC but that you would have to go to those lengths instead of just leaving her out of the main story if you don’t like her much, both baffles and irritates me. I am amused by Santana’s bitchiness and like Puck’s new avatar, but come ON. There are ways to show the friendship deteriorating if that’s your thing, but the blame falls on both sides. I love Kurt the most, but Kurt’s not some delicate angel who has things only happen to him, he can do some bad things himself too :/ I think part of it is also that fandom has comparatively few stories where Mercedes is the positive focus, so the bashing doesn’t get balanced out by there being a bajillion lovely stories about her already.
I wish the show would actually have them be friends again and give them some nice moments. As much as I adore Rachel and her delightful craziness, the Mercedes-Kurt friendship is the platonic pairing of my heart.
Title: Special Character(s): Ensemble. Seriously. It covers pretty much everyone, plus some Marvel Universe characters. Rating: R across everything, to be safe. Word Count: 6100 Spoilers: Through S2 Full-Series Warnings: Violence, potential character death, and other elements common to comics Summary: Being a part of something special makes you special. (Also, having superpowers.) Notes: I wrote up a longer pre-story notes post for this particular story, as it looks to be a long one. But in short: if you have even a basic level of Marvel knowledge, you should be good. Once past this prologue, everything is set immediately after the end of S2. I’m having fun with rolling around in some character and fandom tropes, so expect to see some popular non-canon behaviors brought up. Don’t assume any couple, canon or fanon, is endgame; it’s hardly a focus anyway. And I will try to post a new chapter every Thursday to here and to LJ.
Finally, this prologue is all dramatic. The tone makes a notable change in chapters to come, for reasons that should be obvious.
1. Rachel hanging out at the Hudmels and falling asleep. Kurt carrying her to the living room couch. (Finn: Uh, she could sleep in - Kurt: Don’t even try it; you know mom and dad won’t approve and I know from Nationals last year that Rachel kicks.)
2. AU fic where Kurt is single and raising a kid (sorry Finn and Rachel, but maybe something happened to you guys? I love you) and Blaine is his kid’s incredibly charming teacher. There is much wooing.
3. Superpowers AU.
4. Spy school AU.
5. Music school AU.
6. Kurt and Rachel are famous and have created a cereal called “Hummelberry”.(Miggy, this is your fault.)
6. That cereal will probably be the healthiest but most unappetizing thing ever, no kid will ever want to eat it. And the box cover will have huge pictures of the two of them, with almost no space for any picture of the cereal. And they will fight over whether Hummel or Berry should be more prominent in the name. It’ll be amazing. I have possibly thought a bit too much about this.
