Please don't end those Pezberry feels there. If you don't actually WRITE IT, write it... can you just... write a happy ending. Rachel's gotta notice. She may be slow, but she'll get there. <3
Oh anon, of course there would be a happy ending :)
Santana would probably try distancing herself from the two of them, maybe even looking for her own place. And when she does, when she moves out, and the time between her visits gets longer and longer, Rachel starts to get mad, and she’s like, “He misses you, Santana. He keeps asking where you are. I don’t know what I’ve done to make you—just… don’t take it out on him, okay?”
And so Santana tries, she tries so hard to not let the hurt show on her face every time she goes to see them. And she thinks it’s working, thinks she’s hiding it from Rachel, but Rachel’s not completely oblivious and so she prods and pokes and tries to get Santana to tell her what’s wrong, until Santana can’t take it anymore and she’s just like, “He felt like he was mine, Rachel. Ours. And I can’t—”
And Rachel just breaks down right with Santana and hugs her so tight, and Santana’s mumbling into her neck about the “stupid boyfriend going to be a father and he’s not even good enough for you, Rach.”
“We broke up,” Rachel says. “He—he wasn’t what I was looking for.”
Santana pulls back and looks at her curiously.
“I missed you,” Rachel says. “When you moved out, I missed you so, so much. I didn’t know what to do with myself. It made me realise—You’re my family, Santana. You’re our family. I mean, if you still want to be?”
And then they live happily ever after. (and bone.) (lots.)
Seriously unpopular opinion, I think
Okay, so. I just read somewhere about how in the scene where Rachel breaks down and claims responsibility for causing Quinn’s accident, it shows growth and being a better person by Rachel showing regret/remorse and Quinn being all forgiving and offering a hug and, I’m sorry but, no.
Okay. My tracked tags are pissing me off this morning. What’s new, really?
In which I am probably going to offend 90% of the g!p writers out there

Someone needs to tell me to shut up and just enjoy this shit…
I flailed along with everyone else at the awesome Faberry in last night’s episode, but I can’t help thinking that we were being pandered to in a way. That Glee essentially shucked the responsibility of actually dealing with the obvious issues Quinn has by throwing a bucket load of shipiness to arguably the biggest Quinn/anyone fandom.
I feel like this may well be an unpopular opinion so under the cut it goes
I don’t get it. I really, really don’t.
I could kinda understand the appeal of Finchel at the very, very beginning of Glee and at a very basic level. Granted, it’s a story that’s been told before, that of the geeky girl, against all odds, landing herself the popular jock. But it’s a nice story, so, if they’d actually managed to portray Finchel as a healthy couple, I would get it. I would probably still ship Faberry with as much passion as I do currently, but Finchel wouldn’t make me rage quite so much.
The thing is, while it may have been RIB’s money maker in the beginning, I really can’t believe that there are more Finchel shippers out there than there are Rachel/anyone but Finn shippers.
So why do they continue to shove such an awful relationship down our throats?
Can we just take a look at the things Glee is teaching kids…
- That it’s okay to be a douche, as long as you are able to say the words “I’m sorry,” even if you don’t mean them or learn from your mistakes.
- That putting your girlfriend down while never apologising for your actions is absolutely fine in a relationship and you will be forgiven time and time again.
- That it’s perfectly acceptable for teachers to ridicule the less academically intelligent students to their face and in front of other students.
- That bullying is okay, as long as you’re aiming for comic relief.
- Sex is the most important part of a relationship. In fact, if you’re a virgin you can’t possibly understand what it’s like to be in love.
So one of my followers messaged me earlier about a discussion she was having with a friend of hers about Faberry, but also just shipping and canon/fanon things in general.
Obvs I used Faberry as an example, but I thought I’d share my response with all of you:First off, Rachel;s sexuality has never been explicitly stated in the show, and has even vaguely alluded to at least bisexuality. Quinn has never been in love with any of the guys she’s been with in the show, rather has been with them for status purposes or desperation (arguably the same thing)
In New York, Quinn said she wasn’t “that” into that, which well first of all, her immediate thought was sex with her two female friends so take what you will from that, and second, that could’ve been taken to mean “not that into” group sex, rather than sex with women.
I must express that no one’s sexuality should be assumed just because they haven’t said it. That’s the kind of attitude that leads to awkward doctor’s office visits and white lies at Thanksgiving with extended family, amongst other things.
Shipping a canonically gay character in a hetero relationship isn’t completely unheard of (Blaine/Rachel, Blaine/Santana etc) but often perceived hetero characters are used in same-sex ships because there just aren’t that many canonically gay characters. Glee is kind of an anomaly in this aspect, and it still really doesn’t have as many sexual minorities as would be realistic in a fucking show choir. (just saying)
I’m just having a lot of Faberry feelings today.
All of this.
But also, how old are these kids? A person’s sexuality can change over time. I was perhaps fifteen/sixteen before I realised I was attracted to girls, around eighteen when I realised it was pretty much exclusive.
Sure, some people figure their shit out at an earlier age, but there are also those who don’t. Some who never figure it out at all, some who don’t until very much later in life.
Both Quinn and Rachel have their reasons to not want to consciously admit to any same-sex attraction. Quinn’s her religious upbringing/parents who would probably disown her all over again. Rachel has a heightened awareness of GLBT issues/prejudices, in particular ‘gay parents producing gay kids’ which could make her reluctant.
So, just because it’s not canon, just because even the characters themselves don’t know it yet, doesn’t mean it’s not there, that it doesn’t show through unconsciously in the things they do or say.
I am writing a fic where Quinn makes a wish that Rachel would actually do what she’s told for once instead of always being the one in charge.
Of course, the wish comes true, and for the following week Rachel is subject to Quinn’s every desire, but only if the words are specific orders.
I can’t decide what is more fun to write: Quinn being in control and making Rachel do dirty, dirty things or Rachel being in control and focing Quinn to be very specific as to what she wants Rachel to do to her, because you know Quinn’s so repressed that should couldn’t ever be willingly that specific.
