my brain is not working properly so right now i’m just daydreaming about Blaine and Brittany singing “Fireflies” by Owl City together
#braine is my happy place#blaine and brittany singing and dancing together#blaine and brittany in blanket and pillow forts#blaine and brittany hooking elbows when they’re walking around new york#partly so brittany has someone to cross the street with#partly because it reminds them of old-fashioned movies#blaine and brittany going to gay bars together#blaine and brittany working on the time machine#blaine and brittany volunteering at a cat rescue shelter#blaine and brittany taking over congress#omg SENATOR BRITTANY S. PIERCE#and congressman blaine anderson#overcoming their political differences to pass a bill together#PRESIDENT BRITTANY S. PIERCE AND HER VP BLAINE ANDERSON#RUNNING AGAINST EACH OTHER IN THE PRIMARIES#but britt becomes the nominee and comes to blaine all#’let me break this down for you’#’i don’t like you’#’and your hair is stupid’#’but if you’re my vp we’ll win’#’and i’ll support you for your presidential run in eight years’#blaine is so unhappy#but then they win and brittany runs the world and blaine helps her do it#and they realize that maybe they don’t hate each other after all
JarettSays: #glee cast cuts the #Glee100 cake!
The name of this episode is “Girls and Boys on Film”. And Will decides on that there will be a competition, boys versus girls.
So on multiple levels, we’re starting out with a separation of girls and boys. Doing stuff like this is common and typical. Competitions can be fun, but when you’re facing off people based on gender, it reinforces divisions that are already in society. It’s also exclusionary because it’s binary-focused. What group are you supposed to join if you’re not a boy or a girl?
That issue is more subtle, because we have no characters who identify outside of the binary. We do, however, have characters who play with gender expression and roles. Which is where Blaine and Brittany come in.
MONDAY 2/17: A favorite piece of meta (yours or another’s) about a song/performance on the show
I guess the notes on this post tell you how much everyone else loved this walkthrough of “Shout,” too. It’s one of my favorite things because it’s an in-depth play-by-play of that performance, and it argues why Blaine and Brittany’s playful performance is war—against Will’s typical tactic of dividing the kids by gender. It’s just really brilliant, and makes me love that performance even more than I already do.
What about my original song, do you remember? My cup, my cup saying what’s up to my cup, my cup
