Oh, c’mon, Quinnie! Where’s your sense of adventure? Your thirst for knowledge? Your scientific inquiry?
Besides, Sam totally has good oral hygiene. It would be super obvious if he didn’t.
Both of you are weird, what am I supposed to do with all these blonds?
Don’t hate, you know you love us both.
My sense of adventure, thirst for knowledge and scientific inquiry haven’t left, they’ve just been also joined by protectiveness for my son~ maybe once he’s born, we can make a scale model of him to use instead? That’s scientific!
That is so sweet of you to say!
I’m so proud of you, Rach. You’re going to be amazing, I know it. Just don’t forget us wee wizards when you’re on top, alright?
I got in!
Oh Rachel! Congratulations!
This totally means that Mikey and I get to take Lucas to New York see Auntie Rachel, the big Broadway star~
Well if you say so Quinn, we’ll wait and see. Thank you Quinn- for saying that about my baking. We’ll have to wait and see. I guess that’s true. I wish that I could help somehow. You can hide out by the cupcakes with me whenever you need. I’m pretty sure I’m sticking close to, if not inside of, the kitchen.
You’re very welcome~ I wish I could hide out with you, but there’ll be very few opportunities for that. I’ll be sure to swing by and see how you are, though.
Yeah. Santana said she should have a treat too since she can’t eat the cupcakes. So I made her pudding. It was either that or ice cream/sorbet. Santana said pudding though. I’m glad you think she’ll like it.
I don’t think so, I know so.
Look, don’t worry about how the cupcakes are going to be at the party. First of all, your baking is amazing, so they’re going to love them. Second of all, your cupcakes are going to be the least of what they’re going to be nitpicking. After all, this is going to be the first time any of them see me pregnant…
Damn straight. So suck it up and come on. None of us want to do this, but we have to so deal with it.
…it won’t be so bad, Q. Trust me.
Story of our lives, isn’t it?
… thanks, San.
Having all the attention on you and not on me for once will be a good thing. I’m actually getting really excited for this.
Mack says I can use some of her notes. So that plus you telling me I can use part of last year’s paper, maybe I can stop this from being a shit-show.
Well, if being the pregnant punching bag means this’ll all be a bit easier on you, I guess I could suck it up.
Well then, there you go. You’ve got the paper pretty much done, then. I’ve got a foot or so to go.
Is there anything else I need to be briefed on for the party?
I could ask Papi to get me excused, he and Slughorn share similar interests or something like that, but then he would have to know about my grades and…yea, that isn’t going to work. Think Fabray! You are supposed to be smart, get me out of this!
He’s coming? Oh this is going to be sooo much fun. I may not even need the flask I planned on hiding in my bag. You and Mike dealing with our families is going to be all the
distractionentertainment I need.
If only I could deal with our families less-than-sober. Glad to hear I’ll be of use to you~
As for the essay, I mean, we wrote something similar last year. If you have that, you could re-adapt some of that, and when I asked him if we could, he said yes. It knocked out the first three feet for me.
Yea, and that one way is to show up tomorrow without it and hope for the damn best. My grades can’t take the chance. Dammit, how did this happen?
He just came in one day all frazzled and assigned the paper, other than that I have no idea how this happened, either.
You could always pull the “family obligations” card, as you have been working on that party. Which, by the way, Mike wants to go to. He saw the ring, so I had to ‘fess up. This is going to be fun.
This. Is. Bullshit! This was seriously not how I planned on spending my evening. Slughorn likes me, maybe I can get him to let this one go. What do you think?
Head Girl status plus Slug Club membership just might be able to pull you through this one. He’s been a lot nicer since he assigned the stupid thing, so I think it’d work. Only one way to find out, though.
…paper? Fuck! I forgot about that. I was to
hung overtired the last few days to remember.
I don’t know who pissed Slughorn off, but we’ve got ten feet of parchment about elixirs, so you might want to start.
Well you knew it was bound to happen. Despite all of the shit that has gone down lately you know how our families operate. Nothing is going to change them. Just wear the damn thing through the party then sell it for something you actually want.
…she is right, it is a cute ring. Could have been worse I guess.
I do have to admit, as ridiculous as my sister is, she’s got good taste.
It’s how everyone’s families seem to operate. Mike’s mother is really supportive of us, it’s amazing, but after she hugged the both of us she asked when the wedding was.
We… We’ve talked about it, and we don’t want to force it. We both know it’s completely expected of us, but…
quinnisravenclawsome replied to your post: *A framed picture of Melie blowing a kiss is delivered by a Lopez owl. The frame has “I love my tia!” written on it, followed by an owl from Quinn* Did you get a frame too? She got so big~I’m about as ready as I’m going to be. … Frannie sent me something else with the frame…
Attached is Frannie’s handwritten note.
So you’re going to wear this and not complain about it. I know what it means, you know what it means, and that’s the point. This is me saving your face as much as if not more than mine. You’re welcome. (Anyway, it’s totally cute.)
I umm I recorded a bunch of old spanish lullabies that my parents used to play for me. Now that the baby can hear I want you to have it. I was going to wait till he was born, but what’s the point.
I hope you like them.
Oh Lillian, that’s lovely~ I’ve been singing to him in English and French, so I’m sure Spanish would be a wonderful addition. Thank you so much!
Yea, yea. Keep eating like that and the baby is going to come out twitching from sugar overload.
You sound like my mother. I’ve been eating quite healthily, actually. My plates have always been super colorful, and even moreso with the baby. It’s just that this morning I really wanted the salty-sweet-crunchy-soft combo, and lo and behold. Maple bacon donut.
