I thought you should know you got me sucked into the faberry fandom and for that I thank you! haha The first fic I ever read was maybe someday maybe forever and then from then on I loved ur faberry fics
That’s awesome! I’m glad you like them, thank you very much! I hope I can continue to bring you entertainment =)
I hope you are open to criticism. I honestly love your writing. Your stories are one of my favorites, but in all honestly, Everyone Has a Facebook felt a little forced. That's sounds weird, sorry, but I just couldn't get invested into this story like I have with your other works. Something about it was…well, off. I wish I could articulate this better…just I felt, EHaF was missing a certain something. The pace of the story moved too quickly, I think. I still very much enjoyed the story, don't get
I’m very open to constructive criticism, dear Anon. Especially when presented nicely, as you have done.
I actually completely agree with you. The reason is that I really hate filler. And when I run out of ideas I’m just like “fuck it, I’ll just finish it”. I’ve had it happen with a few stories and it’s usually the multi-chaps that I don’t take months to write. Like this one took a couple weeks. Had I kept working on it for a while then it probably would’ve turned out better but I wanted to get it out there before the season premiere and before my schedule got too busy to focus on it. Are You Ten Years Ago? was, in my opinion, one of my best and that took months of writing, re-writing, editing, and more writing. I am sure that had I taken more time with this it would’ve had that something to make it feel less forced.
Thank you for your comment, I appreciate it muchly, and hopefully my next one will get you hooked =)
Last question, I promise. : P What makes Rachel and Quinn the kindred spirits that everyone says they are? Why Faberry instead of the other ships associated with them?
I like the questions =)
Faberry. How do I begin to explain Faberry?
First and foremost, there is the beautiful chemistry between Lea and Dianna. That is the foundation for any great on-screen relationship. It makes the scenes between Quinn and Rachel feel so, so real and so full of emotion. They fit together and they have a lot in common as characters. We have Quinn who, after getting thrown off the Cheerios, was struggling to make true friends and Rachel opened up her everything even though Rachel herself was desperately trying to fit in herself. I really could go on and on…But really, I honestly think it all comes down to the chemistry between the actresses. They do such an amazing job with their characters and the emotions.
Do you think Quinn would have made a good mom had she kept Beth?
I think she would have with the help of Puck. I really, truthfully think that Puck would’ve been an amazing dad because of his willingness to do anything for his family and being the one to want to keep Beth in the first place. Between the two of them and the help of the glee club I think they would’ve been alright.
Do you think Quinn will have her long, overdue, Beth meltdown this season or is she over it?
Honestly…I’m hoping for a meltdown. Because she needs to deal with it and I don’t think she ever did. I think she shoved it down like she’s been trained to do all her life. And maybe after she does she can start piecing her life together and setting goals beyond Lima, Ohio.
I love her so much that I want to make a sim named Chelsea and have them be an amazing writer and make lots of money from her lovely stories and have a lovely house filled with awesome things and make a sim of her lovely girlfriend and they can adopt lovely babies and leave a lovely legacy and the can buy out the entire town and just be lovely because I love Chelsea.
Aside from Faberry and Brittana, what other couples do you ship on Glee? Also, what are your thoughts on the possible Quinn/Puck reconciliation?
Canon: Puckleberry, Mike/Tina, Samcedes
Non-Canon: Any possible combination of Quinn/Rachel/Santana/Brittany
Quinn/Puck reconciliation…Well, I would like for them to discuss the fact that they produced a child which I am sure will happen based on the spoilers I’ve heard. I think what Quinn desperately needs right now is to realize she can be an amazing person without a boy (or girl) at her side and then perhaps begin pursuing a relationship. She needs a solid foundation of friends that she knows she can trust, first. With that being said, Quinn and Puck will always have a connection. And I would not be angry at them reconciling at all, even if it’s just for a little while, to get some closure. If it’s endgame then that’s great, too. (Ideally, I’d like Quinn to realize her very gay feelings for Rachel and have Faberry/Puck lesbromance but you know, hey =D)
I don't know what it is, but every time I read the name ''Lucy Q'' I cringe. To me, it is just far to cutesy for Quinn. I have read everything you have ever posted and this is this the only criticism I have of your work. Looking forward to reading the rest of this fic.
I actually did take that in to consideration when I first started writing, you’ll see a comment about it coming up =)
I appreciate you giving me an honest opinion in a nice way, Anon. I really do. Constructive criticism is always appreciated here as long as it’s presented civilly.
I’m glad you’ll continue reading and I hope you enjoy the rest of it!
Are twizzlers particularly twisty? Anywho, just finished chapter 4. Didn't expect the smooches, but they were definitely a welcome sight. I'll feel funny about oranges all day. But yeah, great so far. I'm quite interested in seeing how this journey affects Quinn.
Twizzlers are twisty. You should google them. =D
Well there is Faberry listed in the pairings =P Although at first I was tempted to keep it strictly friendship, I just couldn’t. I’m like Tinkerbell, I need Faberry to live.
Just out of curiosity, over at FF net, why do some stories not show up in the directory? Like when you filter out what you want some stories are a no show. If you hadn't posted over at lj, I may have never known you had a new story. Ff net is being weird to me.
I honestly have no idea. FF.net pisses me off, honestly. If I didn’t have readers over there I probably wouldn’t post anywhere but LJ. I’ll try to remember to put it up over there and then include the link when I do a Tumblr post =)

Author’s Note: A few thank yous: To Lib for making a manip that I’m not sure I’ll use because my banner-making skills seem to have left my brain To Alex, my Azn Cockatoo for being my guinea pig and reading the first draft and telling me it doesn’t suck To Jaymes because her cover of “Somewhere Only We Know” was the soundtrack to Chapters 8, 9, Epilogue, and through all of my editing. The song now has almost 60 plays on my iTunes
I will say i have missed your writing in the last while
Real life seems to have taken over and I don’t think it will be going away. I’ve found that having a job and my own money is kind of a nice thing, especially with having a girlfriend and wanting to spoil her. It also helps with getting federal grant money for school.

Here we go, my first Follow Friday in a really longass time.
1. Everyone. 2. Chelsea has a hard time narrowing it down. 3. She follows 160 blogs and doesn’t want to leave anyone out. 4. So just go follow everyone you already follow and maybe a few new ones today, k? K.
I think the videos are a good idea from Naya's side but Heather really doesn't seem to want Brittana to happen. I love her but I think appealing to her would be a waste of time. She already knows about all the fan support and the influence it has and she still doesn't want it. :(
There has been much drama in the fandom as of late, you know what I’m talking about so I’m not going to rehash all of it right now.
Here’s the basics. Brittana is important. They’re two girls in high school who are confused about their feelings for other girls or are having trouble accepting it. In other words, it’s real. And it helps to see something on TV that people are personally going through.
So, in an effort to show Naya and Heather the appreciation and support that they so need, I am giving you a mission.
Record a video. It can be however long or short you want it to be but there are a few requirements:
1. You must introduce yourself with your first name and your age.
2. Talk about how Brittana has positively influenced your life.
3. No bashing any real-life persons.
4. Keep it a low PG-13. No nudity or offensive material.
You can be as creative as you want! Write a song, write a poem, draw stuff…just get your point across and stick to the guidelines.
There will be two moderators to this project. Chelsea (aka insaneantics) and Faith (aka faithlessfate).
After you record your video you can upload it to a host site and send the link to GoodShipBrittana@gmail.com or e-mail the file if your e-mail client allows large file attachments. You can also e-mail any questions there. All videos will be screened and uploaded to: http://www.youtube.com/user/GoodshipBrittana and we ask that once videos start appearing that you send the link via Twitter to @NayaRivera.
Go forth and make videos, my friends! They need to hear our voices!
