Why This Must Be Read: Excerpt: He isn't really sure when everything starts changing.

Neither of them changes – not drastically, anyway – but the ties between them bend and twist under the strains and pressures of the high school social ladder. He's on the football team, mostly at his best friend Matt's insistence, and she's on the Cheerios, mostly at her best friend Santana's insistence. But he's pretty quick on his feet, and she flips better than anyone else on the squad, so Friday night games integrate easily into their lives.

The football team sucks ass, but she never once makes fun of him for it like most of the other cheerleaders do. She marches to her own beat, but somehow still dances with flawless precision. Where others are confused by her quirkiness, he finds himself awed, curious.

The guys in the locker room start asking if he's gotten into the pants of that hot blonde cheerleader yet. He always shrugs and laughs it off, but as much as he knows Brittany gets around – she's not a slut, he's quick to clarify; she just has too much love in her heart, and no, he doesn't use those words either at the risk of being flat-out laughed at – she doesn't get around to him, and for the most part, he's okay with that.

He's just the lanky football player who loves to dance. Brittany shows him that he doesn't have to hide his rhythm in his room. Brittany makes it cool, makes it awesome, makes it fun.

With her, he is exactly who he wants to be.

Why This Must Be Read: Wee!Glee kids are wee and in grade school all the way through secondary and up through Mash-Up. Here's a excerpt:

They were partnered together for a biology project in eighth grade. They had to partner up with the person sitting beside them and when Brittany swivelled in her seat, grinning at him, Mike had to smile. They were supposed to build a diorama of an ecosystem and Brittany was really excited, Mike could tell.

“So, we’re supposed to pick from this list: tropical, arctic, desert or wetland. You care which?” Mike asked, squinting down at the small print on the page and wishing he had brought his glasses that day. He just hating looking like a dork, especially in front of a girl like Brittany. She turned her sunny smile on him and he could feel his cheeks turning pink.

She tilted her head to the side, thinking it over. “Arctic, I think. They have igloos, right?”

“Well, I don’t think the animals do, but they’ve got a lot of fur. They’re all pretty fluffy.”

Why This Must Be Read: Future!fic ten years after high school Mike is living in LA.

Excerpt: “Let’s get out of here,” Brittany says, smiling playfully and crinkling her nose. The lighting in the club is dim, but she looks exactly the way she did the last time Mike saw her, and for a second he feels as if he’s back in high school all over again. Mike downs his drink quickly and follows her through the club. In that moment, he thinks he would follow her anywhere.


They get to his car, and it’s awkward, for a second. Mike doesn’t know where to rest his hands, so he clutches the steering wheel tightly. Brittany talks quickly, her voice bubbly, and Mike simply nods. Brittany doesn’t seem to mind; he’s always been quiet.

Mike ends up taking Brittany to Dairy Queen, because it’s still open at this time of night. He buys them both ice cream cones and they sit on the hood of his car in an empty parking lot. They’re quiet, for a few minutes, but it’s a companionable silence. Mike finishes his cone and wipes his hands on a napkin. His hands are still jittery, and when he rests them on his lap, it feels strange, artificial. Instead, Mike leans back onto the hood of his car, bracing himself with his hands.

“It’s good to see you,” Mike says quietly, and the second he says it he knows that it’s true.
