Summary: This work picks up after 2.22 “New York” and departs from canon after that. The members of New Directions are entering their senior year with a major shake-up at the beginning: Mr. Schuester accepted a role on Broadway over the summer and Ms. Pillsbury is taking over. What follows is a year where the seniors are all set to change the world, or at least change themselves.
Author’s Notes: Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me every step of the way in the process of outlining this project. Special shout-out to Fahye, Stacy, and Lexie, who put up with me sending them bits of the story and freaking out about the immensity of this endeavor.
Kurt rolls his eyes, gently prying himself out of Rachel’s embrace. “While I share your excitement, if not for precisely the same reasons, I’d like to remind you that Mr. Schue is gone and Ms. Pillsbury still hasn’t accepted the position of our faculty advisor. Without one, we’re just a bunch of high school seniors who love to sing and dance.”
“Which is precisely why I called this meeting,” Rachel says, pointing to the white board with a dramatic flourish.
“Is that Barbra shouting, ‘We want you!’ while dressed as Uncle Sam?” Kurt asks, squinting. “I’m rethinking my decision to rehearse for college auditions with you, just so you know.”
“I don’t know, I think the star spangled feather boa is a nice touch,” Blaine says.
