I definitely still read although it is a constant struggle because it is so unrealistic. Not even just in the scheme of Glee but in general. A lot of your character relationships are flawed. Your story lines are good for the most part but it is obvious you play favorites. In addition, if you really wanted to do the fan-fiction justice, not every character who graduated would have gone off to NYADA. I mean let's be honest when the show did it, only one of them got in and Kurt only got in afterwards because he had to re-audition after learning why he failed. Why the hell would it be every character's dream to go to NYADA and or New York, you should have just focused on a couple (Jaxon, even though he is an over exaggerated character who is basically the Edward Cullen of this and Honey, who never gets any time), introduced some old people like you did with India and Thomas, and given us new people. In a small town like Lima, you don't all go to college together and just because you are all in a Glee club together doesn't mean all or even most of you want to pursue it in any form for the rest of their life. In addition, way too many of your characters are members of the LGBTQIA community. I am pan sexual but every single couple on this fan fiction in in some awkward gay relationship. Somehow, the heterosexual team members are the minorities. Don't get me wrong you do a lot of it justice, but are you even trying sometimes I wonder. I mean how many lesbians and gays and bisexuals to you have. What is your gay to straight ratio because the gay representation is too prominent. And also focus on what works, get rid of what doesn't, like Kevin, he doesn't work and is never quirky or funny or Brittany or Sam-esque.
Also the show stated that NYADA only accepts 20 students a year, no exception. Glee: The NYADA Years has 12 New Directioners, if you include India, who all came from a Podunk nothing town in Ohio. NYADA is the Glee's fictitious equivalent of Juilliard which has always accepted 20 applicants or so and it would be highly improbable for it to change at all. Also none of those kids had any experience in other forms of art or theatre other than 3 musicals which aren't exactly deep musicals to begin with. Jaxon has no theatrical background described and we are not told that he did extracurricular theatre, even shows like Arsenic and Old Lace, Hamlet, Dead Man's Cell Phone, or even musicals with a lot of depth like a controversial off Broadway production of spring awakening led by Kurt and Artie or a production of Once to be more appropriate. All of those shows could have easily been put on. In addition, most schools do one musical and one play, at least and they all have a drama department separate from the Glee club. The musical would not only consist of glee members. End point, there is no way, that 12 students from the same school, a school that is one in Ohio, that two doesn't have a flourishing arts department, that three doesn't constantly challenge their students, would beat out other students in Florida, California, Utah, New York, and other international students. It is basically impossible. And that doesn't even include Thomas, whom most of the characters know which bumps them up to 13.
Well person we have never seen here. The fact this is a fanfiction it doesn't haven't to be to the book and be as unrealistic as the writer wants and that's the joy of fanfiction. Relationships are supposed to be flawed anyway. He writes this because he likes it and not to please someone who isnt around for the creative process for this fanfiction.
But I'm sure the writer will welcome your criticism.
Good day Your local DrHarleenQuinnzel
The fan fiction explained the reason NYADA allowed more students in. Yes, it's a stretch but it was needed to be to make the spin-off work. If your point is that it's not as realistic as Glee, I have to argue. Glee is not realistic at all. It's one of the things fans and critics point out. In real life, NYADA would be too strict with its acceptance policy. While my series isn't as true to. Glee I feel it's more true to real life. Yes, the relationships are flawed but no relationship in real life is perfect. Jaxon was intended to be the main character thus why the focus on him. As for other characters, I have stated this time and time again: they will all get their time in the sun. I'm sorry you don't find Kevin thing. You are in the minority. I am also sorry you find it unrealistic. I have had many people tell me that the things so write about have helped them. Also, when comparing it to Glee understand that this was started while Glee was still on so it takes place in a quasi alternate future. It's also not exactly like Glee because I am my own person and my writing reflects me, not the a Glee writers. As for Thomas, most of the characters do not know him and he doesn't even attend NYADA. Also with the reasoning for NYADA's bigger acceptance this year, it was a PRIZE. May not be believable but Glee has taken similarities and also it's told us to "don't stop believing." The series is well loved by longtime readers and I am sorry you have issues with it. Continuity and realism have never been strong points for Glee but I like to think that I do a better job at at than they do. I wrote for myself and the fans and will be returning soon to continue the series. Also, on a side note, I did do a musical each year and even only Glee no one hardly but the Glee club was willing to participate. Just thought I would point that out. But if you are willing to suspend belief at the minor stretches in possibility (like with any show or series) I think you could continue to enjoy it. No series is perfect because perfection is impossible and quite frankly boring. Sincerely, JamesonOTP
