blue_icy_rose: (Quinn hiding her smile)
So, I'm watching the first season of Glee and you know what I really miss? I miss Quinn from that season - the Quinn that totally stood up to Sue and blackmailed her to get a yearbook pic for Glee and then told her to take her Cheerios uniform and shove it. The Quinn that laughed and goofed off with Puck by messing with his mohawk like she did during Hell-O (hey, my OTP may be Puckleberry but I also loved seeing that side of her and they were pretty adorable back then). I miss the actual character development that happened with Quinn. And then this season it was all about getting her Cheerios uniform back and being popular again and then the whole Sam/Quinn/Finn storyline. *sigh*

And the other person I miss? I miss the Rachel that didn't need a guy. Oh, she wanted one, no mistake. But last night I watched her slap Finn and call him out on his lies and tell him that her dreams were bigger than him and OMG, what happened to that Rachel? I love that she got friends in season 2 and that she and Kurt finally stopped hating on each other and same with her and Mercedes. But when it came to the storyline for her and Finn, it felt like both characters were two completely different people. I hated who Rachel was when she was with Finn because it felt like she was constantly trying to please him and it felt like he was constantly trying to change her. What happened to that girl who was determined to get out of Lima and what happened to that guy who was, yes, worried about being popular but didn't act like he was perfect? The sesason 2 finale gave me a taste of that Rachel too when she told Kurt she was choosing New York and then they killed it by having her agree to date Finn for a year. Seriously? What the hell is the point of getting back together with someone with the condition that you're going to break up in a year so you can go do your own thing? Why not work on being friends instead so you can keep that once graduation happens?

This is what happens when I watch season 1. I remember why I loved these characters. I mean, I didn't hate season 2 but I think the first season was way better. Season 2 obviously had some good points but then other parts of it just felt like a total disaster.

Now, I'm going back to my DVDs so I can watch the back 9 and maybe by the end of it, I'll be in the mood to work on my big bang for Gleeverse.
blue_icy_rose: (Kris - guitar)

On August 3, 2011, Kris tweeted that his guitar had been stolen out of his car. We believe that we can turn such a negative event into a positive by donating guitars and other musical instruments to kids who will love them as much as Kris loves his guitar (and his viola, and his piano, and his ukelele.....).


Go check out [profile] krisfansunite if you'd like to make a donation - the money is going to various classrooms/schools to help get musical instruments to classrooms and schools (the quote above is directly from the giving page). The donation drive is doing offers of things like fic, fan made tour guides from Kris's first tour, downloads of his songs, art, etc. in exchange for donations. You can check out the offers here.

If you're not in the AI fandom and don't really want any of those things but you think it's a good cause, then I hope you feel free to donate anyway! If that's what you're looking to do, then you can just go straight to Kris's DonorsChoose Giving Page.
