During Quinn’s rolling on the grass escape:
SHOULD HAVE ASKED FOR DIRECTIONS- A FANMIX
warning: italicized contains spoilers
She saw her quivering against her bed, revealing her feelings and
wanting nothing but to kiss her.
Kiss Me - Sixpence None the Richer
"So kiss me"
Take Me Home Tonight - Eddie Money
"I can feel your heart beat faster,
Take me home tonight, I don’t wanna let you go
till you see the light”
She saw their first date and felt the truck rocking over the molehills.
Can’t Help Falling In Love - Elvis Presley
"Take my heart, take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you”
She saw the homecoming dance. She saw Quinn in her baby blue dress
and her vulnerable heart and her unwavering devotion. She saw her fingers type
out a text to out them.
Heartbeats - Ellie Goulding
"One night to be confused
One night to speak of truth”
Sway- Bic Runga
"Don’t stray, don’t ever go away"
She saw Quinn saying goodbye to Leroy as she watched from the
hospital window. She saw the blonde squeeze his hand, promise to be stronger
and promise to be brave- one day.
This is the Thing - Fink
"I don’t know if you even notice at all
'cause I was real quiet when I closed the door”
She saw her arms spread wide in the airport. She saw herself crying
when that view disappeared. She felt her heart beating thinking of all the joy she
would find in the world.
I Love How You Love Me - The Paris Sisters
"I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me
and when I’m away from you, I love how you miss me”
She saw her bookstore- book shop. She saw the chaise in the corner-
Quinn hated chaises. She saw the coffee pot- Quinn drank tea. She saw the
picture of herself on the desk and the picture of their families on the wall.
The One That Got Away - Katy Perry
"In another life, I would make you stay
So I don’t say you were the one that got away”
She saw pictures of her in Madrid; she saw free, confident and liberated
Quinn. She saw passion. She saw drive. She saw her doing it all for herself and
only because of Rachel.
Not Over You - Gavin DeGraw
"If you ask me how I’m doing
I’d say I’m doing just fine
I’d lie and say that you’re not on my mind”
She saw her face in the cab as she grinded above her with nothing but
ecstasy and thank-fucking-god syndrome.
Forgiveness (Feat. Antony) - Elisa
"Forgiveness, I’m frightened to deserve
Forgiveness, all that we need
Is forgiveness, that I’m not sure I know”
She saw Quinn standing before her, naked and stripped down with only
a red barrette. She saw her shaking, crying, trembling.
Wrong From the Start - To Be Juliet’s Secret
"If you’d let me take you back you know I should
and I would go to the ends of the earth
just so you’d know that every heart falls apart”
One More Night (Your Ex-Lover Is Still Dead) - Stars
"When she’s breaking her heart
She still fucks like a tease”
She heard her, “Choose me.”
Stay - HURTS
"All my life, I’ve felt this way
but I could never find the words to say
I’m Lost Without You - Blink-182
"You’re afraid of leaving tonight
'Cause I am, I am lost without you”
“What a beautiful afternoon,” the minister began. He should be a rabbi.
And Quinn should be to her right. God, what was she doing? “Today we gather to
celebrate the joining of these women in love, respect and marriage.”
Cath… - Death Cab for Cutie
"So everybody will ask what became of you
Cause your heart was dying fast”
Janey sneered and they turned to follow the gaze into the crowd.
And not a hundred feet away, her knight in shining arm took to his feet.
Fred. Rachel grinned, she grinned and her heart leapt into her chest.
“Sir, may I ask why?” the minister added.
“I was promised a different… other… bride up there. And frankly, I object
to the one with the fire engine hair.”
If You C Jordan - Something Corporate
"I don’t care if you dye your hair
You’ll always be a little redhead bitch.”
They would wrestle through life forever, Rachel knew.
But it was exactly as she imagined, every time she closed her eyes.
“I’m in love with you,” she sighed with a shrug of her shoulders, because
life gave her absolutely no other choice in the matter.
I Love You Always Forever - Donna Lewis
"I love you always forever
Near or forever, closer together”
“What changed your mind?”
“You,” she whispered.
And Quinn lit up.
She lit up with her lit up because of Rachel Berry smile and then she
stepped forward, wrapped her arms around her soulmate’s neck and kissed her.
A Thousand Years- Christina Perri
"I’ve loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more”
Honestly, a wonderful decision, it’s well-written, the best angst I ever read…
I’ve cried, I almost never cry. So many feelings, laughs, tears…
and I still have plenty of chapters to read.
Look at them.
And New York City, look at you.
Rachel couldn’t pick her favorite thing: the crowded streets, the blazing horns, the speeding taxis, the music kids, the angled glass, or the skyscrapers? She couldn’t stop looking around.
And Quinn couldn’t stop looking at Rachel.
Because, god, just look at her.
