I will never be not bitter and angry over the NYADA thing. NEVER.
I’m right there with you!
I think I’ve passed from Hulk Smash Rage into being thoroughly pissed. I can’t even read ANY reaction fics about what happened w/Kurt b/c it just depresses me even more to have to THINK about what RIB did to my baby.
I tell you this: if S4 has Kurt stuck in Lima (I doubt it will but I trust NO ONE) I will hunt RIB down like my last name is Winchester and make them feel my pain! Or you know…write a strongly worded email. Whichever.
i can’t even with people that keep trying to justify “i didn’t get in” with all kinds of assorted nonsense. “it’s realistic” (why is it realism seems to mostly only matter when it comes to the gay kids?) or oh god “but kurt has a family and boyfriend that love him and support him!” like okay yeah that’s great and i fully think that burt (and the step family that’s been built up with the hummel/hudsons) and blaine are huge parts of kurt’s overall narrative about love and acceptance and being able to have the things others have/want.
but why does kurt have to settle for the bare fucking minimum of “family and boyfriend that love and support me” when the show and fandom would not expect any of the other major players to? people flipped their shit at the suggestion (rightly so) of rachel’s that her dreams didn’t matter just being with finn does. so why the FUCK would you justify having kurt’s dreams serve as a narrative prop for another character and shocking twists with the same logic. it also says that that’s the most he can ask for which hey, tbf, the show supports since it had kurt thanking the ND guys for not beating him up every day basically because kurt was looking at things through a rose colored telescope.
I’m sorry, but if the show were trying to play the realism card RACHEL WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN IN AFTER SHE CHOKED. Period. This was not about trying to be realistic. This was using Kurt to make Rachel’s triumph more dramatic. That’s it.
And it is fucking infuriating that they trotted Kurt out at the beginning of the episode for their self-congratulatory walk of “look how inspirational this character is! look at what we have achieved!” only to kick him in the junk again for the sake of rebooting his storyline for S4 as a shiny new underdog again. It was narratively unsatisfying and a fucking insult to the people who they have been asking to invest themselves in this character.
Aww Nonnie I know how you feel!
The thing with me is that I get more attached to characters than I do to shows. There are exceptions-like I watched ER regardless of all the cast turnover b/c I truly loved the show and I’m attached to EVERYONE on HIMYM-but for the most part I’m character driven when I watch tv and certain characters truly do “make or break” a show for me. Like, I haven’t watched Bones since S4 when they wrote off Zack. I haven’t watched House since Kutner’s suicide. I haven’t watched Grey’s since George died.
For me, Glee is pretty much all about Kurt. There are other characters I love (Blaine, Puck, Tina, Quinn, ect) but Kurt was the reason I started watching in the first place and he’s the first emotional connection I made to the show. He’s the draw for me and as long as Kurt is on the show, I’ll continue to watch. I’m a Kurt fan first and a Glee fan second and regardless of what anyone thinks of that, it’s the truth for me. The day Chris Colfer chucks deuces at Glee, so will I b/c I could never enjoy a Kurt-less Glee, it’s just that simple.
And another bit of random weirdness about me is I’m one of those people that when I say I’m never watching again-I really don’t ever watch again. LOL, it’s insane and irrational but that’s how I am. I was one of those people who was super angry back in S4 of American Idol when Chris Daughtry was voted off and swore they’d never watch again-and I haven’t. Not one episode. Because when I say I’m through, I’m through. So if I ever get to the point where I say “I’m done” w/Glee, it’ll be b/c I’m really and truly done and as angry and disgusted and disappointed as I am, I’m not at that point yet and I don’t think I can be as long as Kurt’s still part of the canvas.
Wikipedia ladies and gentlemen.
Oh see, the thing is, I don’t know that Sarah Jessica Parker being his mentor means he IS being transitioned into fashion. I know she’s a style icon and her fashion ties are strong, BUT the woman has a beautiful voice and has done Broadway! She played Annie as a little girl, she played Rosemary in How To Succeed In Business w/out Really Trying (alongside her hubby) and Princess Winnifred in Once Upon A Mattress (which was nominated for a Tony) and has done some off Broadway stage work as well. SJP could absolutely be playing an acting coach or a professor at a different school, like Tisch or Marymount Manhattan.
So..idk. I really don’t know what the future holds for Kurt but do know that SJP could just as easily be a theater and performance mentor as she could be a fashion one.
kurt hummel should have been on that train.
Ryan Murphy should have been in front of that train
I don’t think the fandom has ever been this mad collectively about the same general thing.
I honestly don’t understand Britt being able to do student government, Glee or be on Cheerios if she was failing (at our school Glee required participating students to have a passing GPA) I’ve been trying to figure that out since they made it clear she wouldn’t be graduating. TBH, my head canon was that Sue was blackmailing Brittany’s teachers into passing her so she’d be eligible for Cheerios. It was the only thing that made sense…b/c you can’t be a cheerleader with a failing GPA. I legit have no idea how she did any extra curricular activities if she wasn’t passing.
I won’t lie; I never really expected Kurt to get into NYADA. IMO They telegraphed that he wouldn’t get in w/all the talk of his application being too thin and then proceeding to not even give him a substantial role in WSS AND having him lose to Britt in the presidential campaign so it remained thin. Then there was all the talk about how he’s not the typical leading man and couldn’t play the majority of the roles. I pretty much knew Rachel was going to get in and Kurt wasn’t when Nationals was presented as a platform to showcase her talent and give her a second chance and he was pretty much non-existent. Even though I saw it coming, what upsets me is the WAY he didn’t get in and Rachel did. It feels so unfair that I can’t be anything but resentful of her character and be angry at how it happened. I just…I hate that the episode turned like that b/c it had been really good up until then. I hate that pretty much everyone else got a happy ending :Puck graduated, Quinn’s going to Yale, Mike’s going to dance in Chicago, Mercedes is taking the first step on the road to her dream of being the next Whitney, Finn found a sense of purpose, Santana got the means to control her own destiny and Rachel’s dream came true…and Kurt….crapped on yet again. I know I’m taking it too hard but it just feels so unfair that I can’t be anything but sad.
