There's nowhere I'd rather be...

glee: joyful and animated delight


June 11th, 2010

Nine months ago there were five of you, and you sucked. @ 02:21 pm


My Glee Journey. This has been mulling in my head since I watche the finale the fist time and I just had to get it out on virtual paper.

A couple of days later, I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that Glee has finished. Season one, dzown. Incredible isn't it. Also, horribly sad. At first thought I wondered why even be upset. We've only got to wait till September. It's not like we haven't had a hiatus before. Hell, the Dec-April Hiatus was longer than this one will be.

Thinking about how I got into Glee, it's actually similar to how I get inot most fandoms. Unintentional. Back in August 09, i think, I saw that long 5 minutes promo on a TV blog I used to follow. And I hated it. Seriously, I told everyone I knew that had heard of it that I would never ever watch it, it looked stupid, pointless, way too much like like Disney for adults. And that was that.

Fast forward to maybe October. It's the weekend, exams are coming up in a couple weeks. Like big, pre-graduation-get-into-uni exams. And I'm procrastinating. Of course. I'm so bored that I decide to *shock horror!* watch the Pilot of the very show I said I'd never watch.

It was Saturday night. I watched The Pilot. Then Showmance. Then Acafellas. Then Preggers. Then decided I should get to bed if I wasn't studying. The next morning I watch The Rhodes Not Taken. Then Vitamin D. Then Throwdown. Then Mash-up.

I was in love.

I had found Glee in the middle of it's two week World Series hiatus... so I had to wait for the next episode. I went to school the next day and gushed about how amazing this show was. My friends laughed at me, because I had been so adamant about it before, but I didn't care. Glee was amazing. Glee was Special. And Being part of something special makes you special. Right?

What exactly won me over on Glee? Part of me thinks it was Don't Stop Believing, which was my favorite song before Glee was even created... and I loved how they covered it. Part of it was the outrageous one-liners, the hilarity, the ridiculousness that people would never ever say in real life. And part of me thinks its because I saw myself in ever single one of those characters. Part of who I was and who I wanted to be. Which is maybe, why everyone first fell in love with this show. No one is one particular member, we are all Glee Club.

Also, I had just come from a phase of watching back to back procedural and I needed somethign with color that lacked dead bodies.

So I had two weeks in which to study/ get immersed in the Glee fandom. Luckily for me, even if there were no new episodes, the cast was on their NY tour at the time and as I quickly found all the Gleeks on LJ, I quickly fell in love with all of them. I started googling. As one does. I found Out Dianna Agron not only had a blog (!) but also Twitter (!) I quicjkly followed her then Lea then Kevin then Cory then Jenna then Amber then... you get my point. I started using Twitter again, so I could feel closer to this cast and their epicness. I watched every single video that was available on youtube up till their current location. I saved pictures and used them as my desktop. Cory monteith became my phone background.

And then I found The World Series Picture of Kevin and Jenna.  

First let me say Im a sucker for a co-star romance. If you work together, I will probably ship you, at least for a day. So much first reaction? *Awww, how adorable! I didn't know they were going out!* I even thought they were engaged, but Jenna's ring is on the wrong finger... So I googled it.

And found Mchalowitz.

And I fell in love all over again. There were people who thought these looked should be together as much as I did?! Hell Yes!

We squeed, we flailed. I made a video that ended up causing 4th wall drama. We started a drabble-a-thon that I wrote way too much for.

Honestly, I pretty much failed senior chemistry because of Glee and Mchalowitz. It was my fault completely, but I became so immersed in these communties that I couldn't focus on anything else.
 
And I met a lovely group of girls (and fifty year old men, we're still figuring that part out), that I clicked with at the mchalo-comm, then on twitter. I don't know what I would do without them, they seem to be the only people I know that simultaneously see me as a real person, but wholeheartedly undertsand mymchalo-obsession at the same time. I love you guys <3

Then Glee came back. Wheels pushed my Tartie shipping from cutness to O T P. We had fun at Sectionals, And we left for a four month hiatus with Wemma, Finn/Quinn heartbreak and a win in our pockets.

Fast forward the hiatus, and the mchalo-drought (which I think I only survived because of my lovelies. If I was alone in this  I would jumped ship a long time ago), and it's April. News broke of the Glee Tour, and spoilers for the back Nine including some awesomely original ideas and some borrowed straight from the fandom.

I'm not going to say much about the Back Nine, except that it wasn't as great as the first 13. It didn't have teh same spark, it tried to hard. It knew it wasn't the underdog anymore, and became the popular cheerleader who didn't care about passing spanish, as long as they were popular. It definitely had its moments though. Giving Tina more lines was great, Giving Rachel none for an episode was great. Making Quinn into an actual human being was great, seeing Puck has another side was great. However it also changed my opinion on a lot of things. Will moved from greatest guy ever, to ultimate douche. Wemma moved from 2nd OTP to Oh God, Please No!

I still adore Glee. I will never not watch it. Just because I have issues with something, doesn't mean I don't love it. It's not like best friends don't do things that annoy the hell out of me. I think there is only one things that coulod ever make me consider stopping watching... The lovelies know what that is ;)

Anyway, the finale. I laughed, I cried. I loved it. It wasn't perfect. Glee, nor any show, will never be perfect. but It brought me back to the pilot, it reminded me why I loved this show. And in that way it was perfect.

In a couple months we'll have season two, hopefully with refreshed stars and new scripts and amazing songs. I hope they don't forget about what happened in Season 1. That they keep these events in memory and develop the characetrs from that. Because these kids, that are really us can really go places. And we all want to see it. If they manage that, then it doesnt matter which guest stars they bring in. Choose songs after writing the script, instead of vice versa.

And above all, MAKE TINA AND ARTIE HOLD HANDS IN EVERY EPISODE. ALSO MAKE THEM SING TOGETHER.

That is all.

I watched it casually and enjoyed it when the pilot first aired. October and that hiatus period were the exact same times when I started to obsess over Glee and McHalowitz.

(and fifty year old men, we're still figuring that part out) LMFAO. I love you. *hand holds* it's the new hugging.

This is an extremely late reply but I LOVE YOU! And I, too, found Glee during the World Series hiatus. The girls I babysit made me watch Vitamin D with them, so I went home and watched the pilot online and I was hooked!

But what's this about a fifty year old man? I'm so out of loop with everything, EXPLAIN!
