I was fighting a bear in Canada. I was on the verge of death and looked him straight in the eye, and the bear took pity on me before I took my last breath. “Is there anything you want before you die I’m a bear of honor,” he asked. And I said, “I really want to go out for Glee.” And he said, “it just so happens I know the casting director, I’ll get you over there right now. But I’m going to kill you if you don’t get it.” So I went into the casting office, and I said, “I really want to do this part, and if I don’t get it, the bear’s going to kill me.” So they gave me this part. And the bear let me live. And now he’s a good friend of mine and a big fan of the show.

And then the bear was like, “Can you get me a guest spot?”

Tallie’s ‘Holy Crap Why Are You All Here’ Give-Away


About six weeks ago I hit a rather significant number of followers. While I don’t publicise my follower count or put much stock behind it, I do keep an eye on it and know there are a lot of you. I’m not quite sure why, but I’ve been wanting to do something as a kind of thank you for ages and this seems as good a reason as any!

I don’t have fancy gadgets to send you, so I’m offering something a little bit different. 

Buddy Boxes.

In essence, I will pick three winners who will each receive a box of goodies from a fictional character of their choice. I’m going to specify fandoms just because I need to be familiar enough with the characters to be able to theme a box from them. So, if you have a character in the GleeWTNV, Harry Potter, or Marvel fandoms that you would like to receive a box from, read on!


  • Be aged over 18 or have parental permission to give me your address if you win. 
  • Both reblogs and likes count, but please don’t spam your followers or use a dedicated give-away account. I will check.
  • Your ask box must be open so I can contact you if you win
  • You don’t have to be following me. It’d be nice if you were, but I get a lot of notes on my posts from people who don’t and just check in every now and again so I won’t restrict it to just my followers.
  • Understand that the contents of the box are up to me. If you have any allergies or major dislikes please tell me if you win, but otherwise know you could end up with anything! There will be at least 5 items in each box, and probably a lot more because I get carried away.
  • You can live anywhere. I will happily ship internationally.

The give-away will end on November 3rd, at 8am (GMT). Winners will be selected on the same day using a random number generator, and will have 48 hours to respond to either the winners announcement or my ask before someone else is picked. It’ll take me up to two weeks to ship the boxes, so please be patient. I’m putting a lot of effort into them.

If you have any questions just nip into my ask, otherwise, good luck!

by Erin Finnegan

New York-based wine critic Thomas Baldwin can make or break careers with his column for Taste Magazine. But when his publisher orders him to spend a year profiling rising stars of California’s wine country and organizing a competition between the big name wineries of Napa and the smaller artisan wineries of Sonoma, his world gets turned upside-down by an enigmatic young winemaker who puts art before business.

This happened and then we never talked about it



Also I feel like I talked about it some? And there was talk about the Finchel parallels but I don’t remember which competition that was.

Basically this moment is everything and now I will curl in a ball.



Spoilers for The Flash! (Kinda?) Spoilers for Glee season six! (Super vaguely?) And me setting up something happening in my head that may never be proper fic but is still a new sandbox.

(Yeah, it’s the Barry/Artie.)

This is delightful to me on about a million different levels.

I’m leaning towards yes for Angela but I’m not quite sure!
actually googling it gives me zero results so it’s probably a no. SIGH. (ngl i was very torn at that point bc Angela/Hodgins just sank BUT ALSO SHE WAS DATING A WOMAN so like. you know how that goes lmao)

Those were totally my feelings! And boo if it wasn’t. I sort of now want to just rewatch everything to find out. Why is there not a database of every time people actually say bi or bisexual on TV, it wouldn’t be that long!

God Jan. Don’t you know that the one bisexual is limiting and just puts us into a box and denies us our own voice? We all just LIKE PEOPLE.

Oh yeah true I forgot
