The only thing serious about this space is that it's seriously me.
This is not a spoiler free blog though I do try to tag everything appropriately.
I'm a 25 year old writer, working woman, poet and my long time goals are to finish a series of fantasy novels I'm working on and get myself and the play I'm writing to New York.
I Glee. I Glee hard. I also love many other things including all things Sherlock Holmes. Except that one thing...
This is not an Elementary friendly blog. As far as that goes this is a no fly zone. My personal blogging ethic is to live and let live. If you like it, that's great enjoy it. I can scroll past things I don't like. Hate blogging is whack so I don't engage in it. But I am a person, and I do dislike it, so every now and then I say something that express that. If you can handle that great, if you can't, this is not the blog for you.
The break up of Piece Of My Heart is so interesting. Note worthy facts, during the last reprise of the chorus they’ve changed the words. Shirley Maclaine’s character sings “Have another little piece of your Heart” instead of have another little piece of hers. And they have Blaine responding in kind, “Break another piece of your heart”. It’s an interesting change as it seems to direct the song inward. One almost imagines it’s the same sort of self punishment as yelling at yourself to just go ahead and take another slice of pie,’ you know you will’, when you’re on a diet. The whole song is broken up in a way that would suggest that MacLaine’s character is an enabling presence. All of the lines she’s given to sing are aggressive, a call to some sort of action, and by contrast Blaine’s are about relent or acquiescence.
Of course that could be reading way too in to things, cause god knows Glee isn’t always “that show”, except when it chooses to be, but its fun to talk about.
The Music is out! I’ve been waiting for this!!!
*Note: I was going through my draft box and I found this post which I can no longer remember if I posted, why I didn’t post, or what have you, but I think it’s pretty interesting so I decided to post it now. Warning for long rambly thoughts.
Disclaimer: This is not about whether or not I think Crisscolfer is real or even about whether or not I believe that should be a discussion. Personally I wonder on the odd day as much as anyone, but I wonder about almost everything. My imagination aside, my personal rule of ethics is DO NOT HARM and as I personally believe open and intense speculation about Chris and Darren’s private relationships in places and areas that would draw them into the discussion, violate their right to privacy, & or damage their public images, would in fact harm, I do not engage in such discussion or speculation.
This is about fic, and the fact that some people in their quest to protect Chris & Darren take it all the way there, and try to demonize crisscolfer fic writers.
I say this having read exactly four Crisscolfer fics in my life. When people get righteous about Real Person Shipping (RPS) and Real Person Fic (RPF), I just want to spend an hour banging my head against a wall. I want to sit them down and have a serious talk about what we’re all doing here. Hi welcome to fandom. What we do here is spin fantasies. Part of that is writing fics, usually highly sexualized fic, about characters and yes, sometimes even about real people.
