Merciful heavens; your Rachel is fantabulous. Here I thought I'd maintain my usual Brittany love (the Beatles!) but no... I am all gaga over Rachel. (Speaking of my faves, will the piano accompanist they finally named be making an appearance?)

BTW, loved John's humour: "First you accidentally joined a choir, and then you accidentally asked a girl from that choir out on a date?" Although Dad's probably right to wonder exactly what schools are teaching these days.

Rachel's wound up coming alarmingly easily. ALARMINGLY.

Alas, the accompanist did not make an appearance in this one, though I have tried to at least get cameo mentions/appearances from as many of the Glee types as possible. That show has an insanely large cast.

Oh, oh, oh. LOVE your John. This is still kicking ass :-)

Thank you!

I sort of disregard everything the show did with John after the end of S2, I'm afraid. I just don't buy the picture they try to paint in later seasons.

I love John here. It is exactly the kind of humor I would expect from him. I just want to make sure I have this straight, son," Dad says. "First you accidentally joined a choir, and then you accidentally asked a girl from that choir out on a date?" I also adore the fact that John gets misty when he thinks of Mary and Glee Club.

Dean's boyfriend status has me cracking up, as well as his fist to the face that defends Rachel's honor.

Rachel is smack dab perfect.

I love this all.

Thank you!

I like John, from back when he actually appeared on the show, and rather obviously wasn't the guy they reference now. So I let him tell jokes and get misty. :)

Dean takes a step back. She's got this smile. And she looks scary.

The kind of scary that makes him wish he was packing holy water.

Or an AK-47.


You know, you almost made me like Rachel here. I find her almost unbearably annoying, but I was told that is part of her charm. IDEK.

And now Dad is looking all . . . misty. He looks misty, and even Sam knows to shut up.

Which means that there's now no freaking way Dean can drop out of Glee Club.

(...)

"I just want to make sure I have this straight, son," Dad says. "First you accidentally joined a choir, and then you accidentally asked a girl from that choir out on a date?"

Dean nods. "Yes, sir."

Dad scrubs a hand across his face, and Dean is expecting the lecture of his life, because, yeah, put like that, Dean sounds like a moron.

And then Dad starts to laugh. He takes the keys to the Impala out of his pocket and slides them across the table to Dean. "Be home by midnight."

(...)

"Good. Son?"

"Yes, sir?"

"Next time you ask a girl out, make sure you mean to do it."


I so, so, SO LOVE how you write John here. ♥♥♥

Totally lame. If he hadn't snuck in, he'd have wanted his money back

(...)

Oh, and that's another thing. How come extracirriculars are not only mandatory, but come with homework?

(...)

No one could misinterpret that. Add a killer baseline and some awesome guitar, and you have a great kiss off song.

(...)

By the end of his third week at McKinley High, Dean seems to be the only person at McKinley High who doesn't think he's dating Rachel Berry.All of which goes through Dean's head in the approximately 2.8 seconds it takes for him to cross the lobby and introduce his fist to Dave Karofsky's nose.

(...)

Dean wants to protest that he has nothing to do with it. That it would never have occurred to him that the music of a group like Blue Öyster Cult needed to be reinvented by a bunch of high school students. so Dean resigns himself to spending the next few weeks listening to songs he loves get butchered by people who probably think Def Leppard is the latest attraction at the Zoo for Disabled Animals.


Vintage Dean. ♥♥♥. Oh, ummm... it is spelled extra-curricular, not with an i.

"I think you just got Kravitzed. His cover was more about sex appeal and you drive me crazy but in a good way than the original."

"This is why people need to leave the classics alone." The rest of the class has filed out, but Brittany is still sitting there, looking even more vague than usual.

"You okay there?" Dean asks.

"Is it the Beatles?" she asks.

Dean thinks about trying to explain, and then just nods. "Got it in one."


So. Much. Glee! at reading this.

♥♥♥

Thank you for the comments! It's always so nice to know what lines and parts are working for a reader.

Typo in extracurricular is fixed. Thank you; there's always at least one that slips through the editorial process!

THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING OF THE MONTH! Oh my goodness. And I'm so mad that almost none of my flist watch both of these shows. It is such a shame, because this is seriously fantastic. Oh my crazy Rachel, and then the subtle awesomeness of John, and Sam's small but still annoying 12-year-old brother appearances. Lol. And then even the brief moment of Brittany. I know, I'm just sort of repeating what other people have praised in the comments, but it is all worth saying again! I also definitely loved the 2.8 second weighing of the Rachel slushie situation and then how you twisted in that Mary was in Glee so Dean really could not quit. Lol, genius!

I want to bake cookies and brownies for this fic. Srsly. Why did yet another chapter have to come to an end?

Thank you so much -- this was just a lovely comment to receive. I hope you'll enjoy the second half, too.

(And I kind of cannot stop watching your icon.)

Honesty forces me to admit that I didn't see how you could make this combination work but, having now read both parts one and two, you're absolutely rockin' it! So very much fun!

Seriously, it's going to take more than one performance by a Glee Club in Ohio to make, say, Journey relevant again, no matter how awesome they were back in the day. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

(also absolutely agree with your position on John)

Honesty forces me to admit that I didn't see that, either, when I started, so I'm glad to know that you think it does! Thank you.

(I don't really know what the show gains by the villification of John, but they seem quite determined. But I loved him in S1, so I run with it.)

Just wanted to add that the title is freakin' awesome! Of the OMG, I wish I'd thought of that level of awesome!

this line: Seriously, it's going to take more than one performance by a Glee Club in Ohio to make, say, Journey relevant again, no matter how awesome they were back in the day - totally cracked me up!

Love it so far... esp the Dean and Berry relationship :) and now the costumes

Sometimes, I cannot resist the slightly meta joke. :)

Thank you!

Yes, poor Dean, on top of everything else, I put him in a costume!

Did you know that "I Drove All Night" was originally by Cyndi Lauper? If you haven't heard it, you should give it a listen; so much better than Celine IMO (but I like the rougher sound of Cyndi's voice anyway).

Still awesome, btw!

Thank you!

And I did, but since this was about horrifying Dean, it kind of had to be Celine here. Just to twist the "Oh, God, she's belting out a song in the middle of a mini golf course" knife that much more. (He should probably be grateful it wasn't "My Heart Will Go On.") :)

Bwhahahaha! Now I get it. Good thing it wasn't "My Heart..." or poor Dean would have run screaming into the night. :D
