On my tombstone please write “Not appreciating my puns when I was alive was a grave mistake”
I’ve always known about fanfic, I used to write Duran Duran Mary Sue fic way back in the day (LOL), but the first time I went actively looking for it was when I was impatient for something to happen on screen that just wasn’t happening. I remember thinking “Oh hey! We have the internet now! I bet there’s someone else out there who feels like I do and maybe has written about it!” and I was right! But right now I’m seeing SO MANY PEOPLE freak out and I guess I can understand it, but like you said, this is all icing for me. Mmmm, tasty tasty Klaine icing!
So here’s the thing: I’ve had quite a few OTP’s before Klaine (does that negate them as ONE true pairing?), and maybe one of them was actually canon. And totally not endgame. So I’m completely used to relying on fanfiction and my own headcanon to get through rough times and dry patches and well, just the regular show, actually.
When I see people freaking out over Klaine, that they’re going to break up again, or that they’re behaving unrealistically, or simply not the way the fans want them to behave, I just sort of shrug. I’m getting to see them, on my screen, together, as a couple, KISSING even, and every single scrap of that we get, I’m thrilled with.
I don’t write fanfiction, I’m too ADD to manage to ever finish anything and everything I ever seem to want to read already gets written. But I read it. A LOT of it. And to be honest, it solves a lot.
We can’t control what happens on our screen. One half of our OTP might dissolve in a blaze of fire; they might end up happily engaged to some wimpy doctor we liked in another show but not so much in this one; they might finish filming their epics and go their separate ways; or they might even take a sled into the sunset. But no matter what, we have fanfiction.
And if you’re not finding what you want to happen, write it.
Every time I watch Klaine on my TV I’m thrilled with the little bit more we get. I might not like it, but I’m thrilled that we get it.
I’ve watched Glee since the pilot, (stuck in a hotel room, bored, in another city while my dad had surgery). I will watch it until the last episode. And after the last episode? There will continue to be fanfic. And when even the fanfic trickles off, I will find another OTP, another pairing that I will love and will fit into my fannish heart along with all the others.

When people constantly tell me “old movies are boring.”
"Old movies aren’t funny because they don’t swear."
"There aren’t any cute guys."
"Are you trying to be a hipster or something?"
"its in black and white"
"There’s bad acting"
"the story is pointless"
lets not forget about Cary Grant
I have finally found the most perfect post in the history of Tumblr.
