STOP.

Stop what you are doing. Read this story that was written two months ago and has a shameful lack of comments. There were 5. FIVE when I read it just now.

It is gorgeous, it is painful, it is about Santana [GLEE] trying to come to terms with being gay and being in her family and needing to be what is expected of her and oh, the ending. OH, HER ABUELO!

UM, YOU KINDA DON'T NEED TO BE IN GLEE TO GET THIS. It probably rings crazy true for a lot of you, I'm just saying. (And all the hugs, btw. All of them.)

Really. In a fandom that is filled with (I'm sorry, but it's true) a lot of poorly written fic, poorly characterized protagonists, and things done just for the sake of the hit count, this is the kind of thing that should be read.

"Brittany makes her happy. Brittany fills the holes that Santana has managed to gouge in herself, or that other people have gouged in her. Brittany curls around her and is like oxygen, so fucking necessary to keep breathing, and it’s completely separate from the fact that Brittany is legitimately beautiful. She’s beautiful on the inside, and Santana can’t even bring herself to temper that with anything sarcastic. She just is. It’s like she’s scrubbed clean internally, like her soul is totally untouched and unmarred by everything that sucks about the world, and loving her makes Santana feel better about – everything."

And this isn't even the point, it's just a snippet to show you why you need to read it.

Five comments for this? FIVE? *whip crack* You want to read good stuff? Encourage the writers that can give it to you.

This is why you're good people. And really, it was astounding, especially given when it was written.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
