Title: Kingdom Up For Sale (1/9)
Character/Pairing: Quinn-centric gen, featuring Quinn/Sam friendship, canon!Fuinn, and vague hintings at potential Faberry if you squint, with guest appearances by the rest of the gleeks.
Summary: She owes him, and he needs her. And if it turns out that maybe she needs him, too… well. Sam and Quinn, from Comeback to Rumours.
Disclaimer: I don’t own them.
Author’s Notes: So, once upon a time—and by once upon a time I mean right after Rumours came out—I set out to write a fic about Quinn helping Sam babysit, because I thought that dynamic would be really interesting to explore. Somehow, this evolved into a massive exploration of all of Quinn’s issues three months in the making. I have no regrets. The title is a lyric from Gold Dust Woman, off the Rumours LP, because—well. Relevant.
I liked this. It starts off almost more in Sam’s point of view and it’s how you’d imagine they’d actually interact, if they were anything like real characters. Though I don’t think Quinn would blame herself for ruining so many things in Sam’s life, but I figure the cheating plus the homelessness and everything else going on with her is enough.
And as with most well-written general fics, while I may start off hoping for Faberry, I’d actually rather not see it, or definitely not as any kind of major goal.
