10/27/09: Emma's Love Counseling

made by littledust

* Deciding which ships to focus on this week was tricky. Better to post late than never, I hope! *

Emma wants to help you clean up your love life.

One of the trickiest parts of love is getting to be with the person you really want. Students will come to my office for a talk because the person they like is dating someone else and they feel helpless to deal with so much pent-up emotion. Talking the matter over with someone trustworthy is an excellent way of coping with a difficult situation. Sometimes your true love is married and expecting a child, and you end up consoling yourself with gym teachers and Jane Austen adaptations for television. Or so I've heard. A lot of people end up settling for something else when they can't get what they really want.

As a drug addict once said, "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need." Today's discussion focuses on "consolation prize" relationships: Puck/Rachel and Ken/Emma. Oh, dear, that sounds so terrible when put that way. I suppose it's honest, though.

10/28/09: Will's Feedback (Getting To Know What You Want Here)

made by nuclearpez

Help Will Out!

Hey everyone!

Since we didn't have Glee Club today because of the baseball football away game, Rachel (risti couldn't get to Music post due to work today) decided to take the time to work on some other things and is out today.

However, don't worry! Will to the rescue. Heh.

So for those of you that actually could make it to the club today, I've got general questions for you guys! This is the time for you guys to give us feedback on how to run things here. Remember this community is for YOU guys, not for us and we want to make this as awesome as possible.

Glee Club Feedback

1. What are you guys looking for from each of the days of the week? Do you like it when say Quinn goes in depth of catching all the little details about each person? Would you like Emma to reccount all the events that happened so far with each couple? Or would you like it to go straight to the question?

2. When do you think you'd be most likely to check the posts? (If you could convert EST times that'd be perfection. If not, at least tell us your time zone.)

3. Though Kurt runs the viewing parties a day later, would you guys like viewing discussions here DURING the episodes as well? Speaking of which: TOMORROW IS A REWIND DISCUSSION! We're going to be discussing the Pilot tomorrow, Showmance will be the week after.

4. While we have new posts every week, we have a desire to keep posts active on certain topics so that no one feels that they missed the initial topic. How would you recommend we keep discussions going?

5. On Puck's Swinging Saturdays we're keeping the posts free-for-all, would you guys like anything else to be the theme there? Would you guys be down with a Friending Meme this Saturday?

6. Though we have questions daily, they're meant to initiate discussions not to fully control them but they seem to be mostly controlling. Are you guys okay with this? How can we create more of a long running discourse versus just posting one's opinions?

Thanks guys!
