I didn’t know what was going on until I saw this tweet. At first I thought Twitter was regurgitating old tweets (because that has happened in the past.) Then I saw some responses to it. So I was curious and I searched her name on here. For anyone who might not know, someone or a group of someones apparently hacked several celebrities’ accounts and posted private, intimate photos and Becca was one of them. (Of the Glee actors, I saw Lea and Melissa also mentioned in discussion posts though I didn’t see any of those photos because I just searched Becca. There are also several other celebrities not just Glee actors who were violated.) I don’t know where else they are posted; but they are on here tagged with her name. I feel guilty just seeing them so if you want to try to avoid them; I recommend just sticking to your dashes and people you trust for a while.
I really admire her for this response but it also makes me sad considering it’s pretty much the first public statement she has made since thanking people for their condolences over her boyfriend’s death.
I just spent five minutes amusing myself by imagining the entirely different fandom explosion we would be having if it had been Sebastian instead of Karofsky.
I MEAN I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE NEWS 10000X BETTER but I bet the-multicorn (among others) would have been MOST UNHAPPY.
aww thank you for thinking of me jakia <333
and lol yes I would be very ~trepidatious of even watching the show again, idk what I would’ve done, but so many of y’all feel exactly that way about Karofsky, there are not enough ***hugs*** in the world.
Nadia, exactly how do you think the explosion would be different? I mean. Just bc Seblaine and Kurtbastian and Sebklaine all have lots of fans I guess - so there’s enthusiasm to tap into there from the non-OTP side? Or something else?
I agree with nadiacreek’s read on the fandom with regards to Seblaine. I would think it would have been much more divisive within the fandom. And since Grant Gustin is so obviously not available right now, I couldn’t help wondering if they would have considered Sebastian if he had been available. I would NOT have been happy at all at that choice. Not so much because of dislike of the character as it would pretty much blow my own head canon about what’s going on between Blaine, Kurt and Sebastian. See, I don’t think Blaine is attracted to Sebastian … at all. He may have been a little flattered by Sebastian’s attention initially … and I have my doubts about that. I tend to think Blaine was more uncomfortable around the initial flirting than flattered. But Blaine started actively disliking Sebastian right around the courvoisier in his coffee. And yeah, he responded to Sebastian’s texts; but I honestly think it was Blaine’s impulse to be polite more than anything. And here’s the kicker though: I think it’s KURT who thinks Sebastian is attractive and at some level Blaine is aware of that. So during that train wreck of a moment when Blaine was telling Kurt about Eli, it got even worse because Kurt brought up Sebastian. A large part of Blaine’s anger with that was “I really never liked that guy EVER, AT ALL! Don’t you know me at all?” but I think there has also been a tiny part of, “Why do you think that guy is so irresistibly attractive, huh?!” there too. So while I’ve never been a Kurtbastian fan either, I’ve always felt there was something more canon based with that pairing (though I think, in canon, any potential for that was over after the rock salt slushee) than there ever was with Seblaine. So no, I don’t think Blaine could ever date Sebastian even with maybe a subconscious desire to hurt Kurt (And yeah, I think there has to be a bit of that going on with dating Karofsky even though consciously it’s going to be all, “Cool! I can date someone I can watch football with!” And even that is really a sour grapes thing because that supposedly great quality is primarily “not Kurt.”) because I truly believe Blaine can’t really stand to spend too much time with Sebastian. Though I acknowledge all the writers may not all see things the same way because Blaine only directly said he didn’t like Sebastian a handful of times and maybe those times didn’t resonate with them the same way. Or Grant’s singing ability might have trumped Max’s lack of said ability. Either way, I’m glad Grant is unavailable. My head canon with regards to Sebastian and Kurt and Blaine is safe!. :)
I just found out like a week ago you can trade your broken headphones and chargers at the apple store for new ones as long as they’re apple!!!
WHAT THE FUCK
Just checked this one out and it’s true. Theoretically, you are supposed to provide proof they are still under warranty; but if you are nice, they’ll probably just grab you a new one off the shelf without checking/insisting on a receipt etc. My advice would be if you don’t have proof of warranty/ don’t want to go to the trouble of finding it and you happen to hit a “rules stickler” at the Apple store (probably unlikely: they are busy; it’s probably just easier to grab a new one off the shelf than taking the time to confirm warranty) just try again later with another person.
All the Beautiful Pieces
Blaine Anderson is spending the summer after graduation flipping houses with his brother, Cooper, for his brother’s total home renovation show that features the worst houses Cooper can buy with the added benefit of torturing his brother. The last house Blaine has to renovate is an original Victorian House in San Diego, CA, which is in terrible condition. But this house turns out to be more than just another job. This house was once owned by a famous Vaudeville ventriloquist by the name of Andrew Smythe. It houses a very interesting collection of items - among them two life sized puppets. Blaine isn’t sure exactly why, but he’s drawn to them - especially to the one with the beautiful blue eyes. He gets Cooper to give him the puppets, and Blaine starts to restore them. In the course of the restoration, Blaine finds out the neither puppets is just a run-of-the-mill puppet, and Andrew Smythe was hiding a secret that will be the key to saving two lives.
(Mention of a character death that happened in the past.)
I am posting this story late because I had it completes (at more than 30,000 words) and while transferring it to a new computer, the file became corrupted, and no matter what I did, it couldn’t be recovered. It killed me especially because freakingpotter did such an incredible job with the art that it deserved to be posted with a completed fic. But I couldn’t sit on these beautiful drawings any longer. So I am posting this as a WIP while I retype all the chapters from memory. In the meantime, oogle over this amazing art, and make sure to heap freakingpotter with tons of praise for being such an amazing artist, and such a supportive person. She was such a joy to work with. I absolutely dedicate this story to her <3

HOLY CRAP FORGET EVERYTHING LOOK A THIS ART OH MU GOD
The art IS amazing! The story looks like it will be pretty awesome too; but I think I’ll wait until there are at least three chapters posted before I dig in. Until then, I’m reblogging to remember.

i guess you could say they were
Hilarious response by Ato Essandoh. However, I’m currently too lazy to scroll back to the earliest comments on this post. Did people genuinely not recognize this was an obvious spoof on “Did you know?” and other Tumblr posts like this?! I mean the whole point was that even if the information isn’t as outrageously false as this one, it STILL might be total bullshit; but people just so readily believe it because of how confidently it is worded and how many other people believe it. So, if anyone actually believed this one, well, the joke is really, specifically on you.
I’m also really enjoying the spec that I’ve seen from several people that Blaine and Dave might be faking a relationship to make Kurt jealous, rather than actually dating. I don’t think it’s true, but it’s a fun idea to play around with and SOMEBODY SHOULD WRITE THE FIC.
(Dave has faked a…
With the first round of spoilers, I spec’d that maybe it was a ruse but that Kurt was also in on it … for show choir competition reasons (to get their respective teams to trust them more.) I also spec’d, but did not share publicly, that the ruse might become complicated as some feelings become a little real (namely Karofsky developing feelings for Blaine and the show choir rivalry tension.) However, now with the second round of spoilers, the context actually makes sense to me and I’m taking them at face value.
I think it’s probably impossible, because of a really loaded history surrounding Karofsky, to escape the aspect that Blaine is dating Karofsky to hurt Kurt. However, I think the Blaine and Dave faking scenario actually makes that aspect more conscious and deliberate. If they are really dating and Blaine is more, “Hey, we just have a good time together. We go to all the Buckeye games!” it becomes more subtle, subconscious, and maybe never even actually voiced. And I think I prefer the latter.
That said, I want ALL the fanfic! Come at me!
