I am incorrigible.

Just thoroughly and completely spoiled myself by reading a detailed recap of the next episode.

Am vaguely disappointed in my lack of willpower - what did that take, like six hours?

Am also, however, more hyperactive/electrified with joy than ever before.  I see no actual way this can fail.  I know, I know, famous last words, knock on wood,  but SERIOUSLY.  It sounds so epic.  The fact that the entire forum beneath it exploded in cries of "lame!" and "stupid!" only bolstered my confidence, since other people are always wrong.

Hey, remember back in  March when my enthusiasm/squee levels were operating at 10%, and I said "it's hard to remember why I was so crazy about it last fall, so I hope that comes back when the show does"?  Mission accomplished.  Now I can't remember how it feels when Glee isn't the center of my fandom universe.

P.S. Here is a magnificent post-ep for "Bad Reputation," Along The Yellow Brick Road, featuring shifting perspectives from Rachel and all three guys, in a rare blend of beautiful writing style and plot-driven story. You need it in your life, regardless of who you ship her with, or even if you reject shipping altogether.  Trust me. 

Then again, heading for the Jesse/Rachel tag on gleefics pretty much guarantees you quality, because it seems that this ship's supporters excel at writing their pairing the way Will/Rachel writers suck at it.  The dichotomy fascinates me.

I never mind spoilers, and sometimes I just enjoy being spoiled. Though for the past two weeks I tried very hard not to spoil myself, I failed because of the songs listed in Dream On. Yep, have read a part of the spoiler and it appeals to me. I'm planing to watch it live despite my poor internet speed. If the internet doesn't work, I will just have to wait for download.

And, I agree with your last point. It surprises me that Jesse/Rachel fics are generally good, but a good Will/Rachel story is just so precious, like...once in a lifetime. Thankfully, there have been some nice stories of Will/Rachel ship in the last week.

That's how I usually am, but for this show I accidentally wound up going about 85% spoiler-free when it returned, and it's made every episode so much shinier. Still, this news was well worth it!

Any chance you could point me in the direction of some of those stories? I got too discouraged to keep looking for them myself.

Probably too many spoilers really spoil the fun. Since the B9 began, I have not felt the show as enjoyable as before. Better stick to being spoiler-free. But, I'm looking forward to Dream On, even though I totally spoil myself by listening to the songs.

Two latest fics I think worth reading are The Map Is Not the Territory and This City Is For Strangers. Also, there is another in progress multi-chapter story by 0penhearts. Hope you enjoy them. :)

Ooh, thank you, those are wonderful! Is that first one an NC-17 fic with a plot? I don't believe it. I mean, I'm reading it, and I can scarcely believe my eyes.
