Bucky enrolls in a college course about Captain America. It doesn’t go well.
Or, the one where James Barnes writes a ludicrously inappropriate academic paper in defense of Steve’s virtue. Complete with red-penning from a professor whose slow descent into madness is beautifully apparent and a formal letter of apology from Cap himself that doesn’t milk their sad poor orphan status at all, what are you talking about, Captain America would never do that.
I cried laughing. Guys, please. Love yourselves. Read Buck’s foray into academia. And have a few feelings too.
I read this at work and legit was trying to suppress laughter so bad that tears were in my eyes, which then leaked out and fucked up my eyeliner all over my eyelid
in short this furthered my progression into the winter soldier
go read the thing

AU in which Finn, Artie, Kurt, Puck, and Mike are an internationally-known boy band, The New Directions.
Sam, Blaine, Ryder, Jake, and Joe are a rival boy band, The 5 Experience.
it’s basically N*SYNC vs. the Backstreet Boys: constant drama over whose current single is doing better on the charts, fighting over whether Artie or Blaine is the better lead singer, dreams of them teaming up for the ultimate album/concert, etc.
boy band school supplies, and girls glaring at each other if they’re carrying a New Directions folder instead of a 5 Experience binder. then there are the girls who have BOTH and no one knows what to do with them.
people shorten the 5 Experience to 5Ex, and there’s DRAMA over how much the shortened name looks like “sex”. Parents send complaints to the record company. The guys all just stare in horror, except for Jake shrugs and is like “dude, I noticed this a LONG time ago.”
when it’s revealed that Puck and Jake are half-brothers, the press constantly asks them about sibling rivalry, especially since they were both already painted as “the bad boys” of their respective group. Jake galres and Puck flips them off.
it’s at this point that a substantial portion of the internet decides that it’s high time for a 5Ex + ND fandom. there is fanart of the groups as the Justice League. there are nude erections puns. there are memes about Mike’s abs, and Sam’s abs, and the abs going on sexy adventures. someone proposes a everyone-was-in-high-school-show-choir-together AU, and everyone pronounces it “the dumbest idea i’ve ever heard” before whipping out 75K fics.
TMZ breaking news says that Kurt and Blaine are dating and ALL. HELL. BREAKS. LOOSE. top 3 trending topics worldwide on twitter, tumblr goes down because it can’t handle the traffic, ONTD pronounces that the entire thing is a marketing scam. the punchline is that Kurt and Blaine aren’t actually dating yet. they try to send out corrections, and no one believes them.
(“How is it that my fake relationship gets leaked to the press,” Kurt says to Finn, “while your real relationship with the world’s biggest female pop star was secret for over a year?”
"…Rachel is really good at distraction?" Finn says.
"I threatened to sue a lot of people," Rachel says.)
meanwhile Mercedes, Santana, Brittany, Tina, and Quinn are the Troubletones, the girl group that went from nobodies to household names in the span of a month. Marley, Unique, and Kitty are a trio group like Destiny’s Child. Marley is the one to come up with the charity concert, and reaches out to Berry and the Troubletones and ND and 5Ex. it turns into a huge-ass televised-live extravaganza, and they all sing Don’t Stop Believing as the concert’s last song, and everyone in the audience in crying and they’re not entirely sure why.
Extroverts are unfulfilled by solitude!
Introverts collapse at parties.
Extroverts die if at least twelve people do not love them by the time the last petal falls!
Introverts have traded their singing abilities to the sea witch.
If an extrovert does not have enough friends, they lie like a patient etherized upon a table!
In the gloom of the empty dusk the regenerated introvert croaks out, “Nevermore.”
like one of your friends is super obsessed with a thing so whenever you see something about it you’re like “YES THIS THING” but you’re not the one obsessed with it. they are. you know very little about this thing and yet it still excites you because it excites your friend
Chapters: 43/43 Fandom: Glee, Dancing with the Stars (US) RPF Rating: Mature Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply Relationships: Blaine Anderson/Kurt Hummel Characters: Blaine Anderson, Kurt Hummel, Santana Lopez, Brittany S.

It’s done! A million thanks to Les ( moreorlesme) and Em ( wintercreek) for the beta/friendship/general awesomeness. And thanks to all of you for your patience. This is for you, kind readers. You’re the best.
I really enjoyed this story so much! I was super glad I watched Amber on the show last year because it meant I had the basis for knowing how the show works going into this fic - although it’s pretty straightforward anyway. This story was so much fun, and did a number of things I love to see but rarely do - the arc of Kurt and Blaine’s relationship the whole way was a joy!
Also! There is lots of Mercedes and Tina and Santana in this fic! And less Rachel, but without it being all about how Rachel sucks, she’s clearly also important to Kurt. Also, Carole is so wonderful in this. And Cooper who actually seems like canon Cooper to me with a relationship there I can buy! And lots of great characters, actually, it really is an ensemble fic! (also it’s weird to be in a position where I actually have very little idea which non-Glee characters are OCs and which are real people)
This story really captured me the whole way through and I’m so glad I came across it, definitely well worth a read.
I’m gonna re-rec this because more people are online, and this is such a funny and FUN fic that I want people to see it!
The Glee version of “If I Were a Boy” is one of those songs that makes me so thankful for my noise canceling headphones. It deserves to be heard without distracting background noise. Every single time.
Fandom: Glee Title: Stay On the Moon Verse:Stir Up the Beast Inside Author: idoltina Rating: PG-13 Genre: angst, canon-compliant AU, fantasy, gen, romance Warnings: allusions to violence, canonical character death, depictions of grief, mild dominant/submissive dynamics, nudity, situational unintentional attempted aggravated assault Word Count: 7,695 Summary: Set just prior to 05.03 The Quarterback. The pack’s lament. Disclaimer: I don’t own Glee, etc.
This is a grief fic, so please take care of yourself and read or don’t read accordingly.
For me, it is an emotionally resonate grief fic. This supernatural verse (which it helps to have read the other pieces of, but I don’t think it’s 100% necessary) facilitates an exploration of grief unlike what I usually expect. Anyway. I’m glad to have read it. Maybe you will be too.
