Not soon enough. LOL
I wonder what performance they’re going to leak. I was guessing Duran Duran but then that will give Quinn away so I don’t know. We should at least get that on Thursday since that seems to be when they’ve been leaking those lately.
A video might give Quinn away - depending on whether she’s there in a wheelchair or “just not in a shot where you see her” (which has happened with a number of characters in choir room numbers…like when Darren was gone for a month but Blaine never left). But we used to get previews of the audio on, like, Tuesday or Wednesday before the episode. A 30-second clip of all the songs, in one audio file that was about 2-3 minutes long total. Because I remember flipping the fuck out at a few of them - most notably “A House is Not a Home” because I found that somehow before I ever heard Four Minutes and was all 0.0. I don’t remember when those stopped, but it must have been somewhere in the middle of last year at the absolute latest because we didn’t have any previews for any of the Warbler songs - sometimes we got a performance leaked early but never the :30 preview compilation.
Everyone’s talking about how last year’s prom was so gay it’ll be hard to beat this year. They mention things like the montage of gay tears and all of prom royalty being gay and two gay boys dancing to dancing queen being sung by a lesbian as if all of this was good and should be repeated or exceeded.
It wasn’t gay in a good way. It was oppression times fifty and the night turning out mostly okay despite the most homophobic attempts to the contrary. I don’t want anything like that this year. I want none of it. None.
You know what I want? Kurt and Blaine - and Brittany and Santana, sure, why not - slow dancing. Not to freaking “Dancing Queen” which is more fast than slow, either; an actual, syrupy, ballad of a slow dance. With arms around each other and looking at each other and moving at the same time. You know, like any other couple. I want them slow dancing and enjoying themselves. They don’t even have to be the focus of the song, either. As long as I can see them with my naked eye in real time on my tv, I’m happy. None of this ‘hey, look, they totally held hands - I gif-ed it!’ stuff, either. Something that is two boys visibly slowdancing on national television during their prom.
That’s all I want. Is that really so much to ask?
For those of you who aren’t on LJ or haven’t seen this, this is starting with chapter 15 of story 2 of a like 10-story series. If I were to go through and post all the things that have been posted before, people would probably want to kill me…but I can if people want. Or you can just check the Series page below because it has all the parts all nice and neat (on LJ but unlocked).
SERIES: Immutability and Other Sins #2
RATING: R for language and sexual situations
PAIRINGS: Kurt/Blaine (pining), Rachel/OMCs
WARNINGS: AU, homophobia, sexism, racism (though more mild than in the last fic)
SUMMARY: Kurt moved to New York in the fall of 1961 with wide-eyed dreams of wild success and moving on from his failed relationship; it should be easy enough to find a new boyfriend and a career as a hot young fashion designer, right? Little did he realize just how wrong he was.
DISCLAIMERS: Any of the characters you recognize from the show are not mine. The rest of them are, I suppose.
I just spent about 5 hours working on an a cappella arrangement of Rumour Has It/Someone Like You. This is on top of the several weeks I spent fighting with getting the keys to line up because I was working from like 4 different portions of versions to get the initial rhythms right, and not counting the 2-3 hours I will spend this week typing in the lyrics and adding all the finicky things like dynamic markings because my free-ware doesn’t like to do those unless I force it.
All so I can spend another two weeks making my dress, and a week or two making other people’s dresses, and get up in front of people and get my best Santana on. Because nothing says “productive use of time” like dressing up in drag and doing a cappella mashups.
(And my vest for tomorrow? Still in pieces on the back of the couch where I’ve been sitting for 8 hours.)
I’m not sure which is more baffling:
1) That girls must be shorter than their male love interests;
2) That he can say someone is big-boned and yet claim they should have a slimmer body - yes, including frame - when being starved to death. As someone with a wide frame I can safely say that’s bullshit;
3) That he thinks Lawrence is big; or
4) That he thinks this is a “seductive figure.”
No boobs, not really any hips, kind of a square almost-boyish frame really. Which I don’t say derisively at all - I think she makes a fantastic Katniss. But the cognitive dissonance of it all is just baffling.
Someone needs to be gif-ing the PR: All Stars reunion.
Austin’s bitchfaces are giving Kurt’s a run for their money.
I’m excited that blaine is going to be singing Somebody that I used to Know. But only marginally excited.
because at this point
it seems more likely to me that Blaine will be singing as background for another character’s storyline, like, idk maybe a Quinn storyline that involves her like losing her memory or something after the car crash, than singing about something that pertains to his own personal character development.
Because Blaine’s songs so often have context.
