And don’t worry, I do plan to dip back into the post wedding period a little more as well. I just haven’t gotten back there yet.
… X-rated or PG ??
Probably My Life Before Me Undone. Unless they’d be on board for the unedited sex scene in The Taste I’m Touching… ;)
They certainly do. And smug Quinn does make an appearance, shortly after annoyed, mildly insecure Quinn.
Oh, there’s certainly some angst there on both sides.
The Gravity stories were fun to write, disregarding all the Finchel scenes I had to watch. :P
In DB, Won’t Spend Another Day Wondering is actually set the day after their first kiss and is technically their first official date that Santana ends up hijacking. So really, the only other “date” before that was the dinner they would have had after their kiss and Rachel’s confession. But yeah, after that, it’s three weeks until The Taste I’m Touching, which is their first time.
Glad to hear it. :)
And your voice is officially added to the chorus, and the refrain seems to be getting louder for stories to fill the gap of those early days. I’ll have to seriously consider it.
I think they look worse in Quinn’s mind. But they also would have been more noticeable in the first year or two following the accident until they began to fade a bit. She did have issues with them for a long time, but she’s mostly come to terms with them by the time she begins her relationship with Rachel. Also, it’s just different with Rachel—more intimate because of the trust that’s always been there.
I touched on that a little in The Taste I’m Touching:
Rachel sucks in a breath as she admires the muscular thighs and curvy hips encased in white, low-waist, boy-cut briefs. She can’t stop herself from ghosting her fingers over the outside of Quinn’s left thigh, past her knee, and down over her calf where the faded, white scars serve as a reminder of her broken leg and the surgeries that she’d endured to repair the damage. Quinn is still a little self-conscious about them, but not enough to hide them from the world anymore. The scars across her side and back are a different story, and it’s taken Quinn years to stop hating the sight of them, so it’s not really a surprise that she’s slower to part with her camisole—even though Rachel has already seen most of her scars over the course of their friendship.
"You’re so beautiful," she breathes, meaning it with every fiber of her being, because every flaw, every scar embedded into the skin of this amazing woman’s body is proof of her strength and resilience—and that only intensifies her beauty. Rachel has told her all of this before, (and long before she ever imagined that they would become lovers) so she keeps this moment simple and free of the darkness that lingers over Quinn’s past. Today is a celebration of love, and there is no room for sadness or regret here
And I’m hoping the next couple of days cooperate with me regarding part two of DOEP. I should have more time than last week, but you never know. :)
Jenny Farrell (Katherine Heigl) has led an openly gay life - except with her conventional family. When she finally decides to start a family and marry the woman they thought was just her roommate, the small, safe world the Farrell’s inhabited changes forever. They are left with a simple and difficult choice - either change with it or drown.
Last November, MM Productions completed principal photography on the film “Jenny’s Wedding” and they are currently in post production.
Made independently, this film is the kind of movie the studios used to make all the time. It is about real people, the problems they face, and the personal courage it takes to resolve them. It is also about transformation and love.
Both moving and funny, it has an important message to send, and our goal is to ensure it reaches a wide audience.

Lol. Probably not. They also don’t seem to remember all those times she said sleeping with Puck was biggest mistake she ever made or that she wasn’t dragging the anchors of her past into her bright future at Yale. Or that she was done letting men define her (for the umpteenth time.) They barely even remembered she had a baby until they needed Beth as a plot device for Shelby/Puck and evil!Quinn.
But they also didn’t remember that Rachel said her dreams were bigger than Finn or that the stage was her first love or that she didn’t like the way she acted when she was with him.
I like a little more continuity in my own stories. :)
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?

I hope you enjoyed your visit, alcohol notwithstanding. My Muse is…mostly cooperating. My plan was to get part two done and up this weekend, but last week was pretty busy for me so I didn’t get as much writing done as I had hoped. I probably won’t get the update posted before midweek at best, but next weekend at the latest, I think. That’ll teach me to post WIPs. :P
I’m glad you like the music. I just post what I like. And I like what you recommend. :)
That’s a good question. I’m glad you asked.
For awhile I’ve had this idea that one of the reasons that Quinn liked to be in control in the bedroom and didn’t really spend the whole night with her casual lovers was because she wanted to limit how much of her body was on display. She always wanted the lights off. Sometimes, she’d even manage to keep her top on, or she’d put it back on right away, and then she’d leave before morning so her lover wouldn’t see all of her getting dressed in the unforgiving sunlight.
She had to tell some of them that she was in a car accident in high school because the scars on her leg were always more visible when she wore dresses and skirts, but she never went into the details.
The only lovers who knew how serious the accident was were Kylie, her first, and the “no lights” were very much in effect in that brief relationship, and Sarah. Only Sarah knew the accident happened on the way to Rachel’s ill-advised wedding. And even with Sarah, it took awhile for Quinn to be comfortable enough to let her really look at all of her body.
Ugh! She should have been pissed at him, and even if she understood that he didn’t out her intentionally, she should have been extremely offended by the way he chose to make amends by doing patronizing “Lady Music” instead of just admitting that what he did was wrong and offering a sincere apology.
But that wasn’t Rachel. That was Mrs. Hudson, Stepford Wife.
Well, she’s got Quinn and Puck’s genes, but she was raised by Shelby, so I imagine she’s smart—both book and street—and she loves music and Broadway like Shelby (and Rachel). Sometimes she can have a little bit of an attitude that gets her in trouble, and she often tries to talk her way into getting what she wants, but she’s got a good heart and is very loyal to her friends and family. And she definitely has a tiny bit of Rachel in her because she joined every drama, music, and vocal club in middle school and high school.
