Spoilers: Through “The Quarterback”
Summary: No one knows how to deal with Santana’s rage and grief the way Brittany does…
A/N: Plot fill for misadventuresofalactard, who wanted some Brittana interaction post-“The Quarterback.”
It makes her skin crawl when they try to touch her. She screams and runs, fights and yells, does everything she can to push people away and manipulate everything into how she needs it to be so she can figure out how to deal with it. And maybe it’s selfish - okay, it’s definitely selfish - but Santana’s never been good at grief. She doesn’t know how to cope with loss and it feels like it’s just one thing after another in her life now. Which, again, selfish. She knows it is.
After all, it isn’t like Finn Hudson was her best friend. For the most part, she couldn’t really stand the boy. Finn was a typical dude, as selfish as any other teenager, even cruel at times with the things he said and did. He was the one who’d forced Santana from her closet before her time. He was the reason she’d lost a lot of what she had. She hadn’t liked him.
And maybe that’s why she felt so guilty.
Glee star Naya Rivera tells Latina how she and her costars are coping with the July death of Cory Monteith, and outlines how she stays grounded while skyrocketing to fame in the October 2013 issue of Latina, which hits newsstands and Nook Newsstand on September 10, 2013.
Rivera tells Latina how she began acting and modeling as a toddler, and how her mother kept her motivated and focused when she despaired in her late teens before scoring the groundbreaking role of Santana Lopez on Glee. The actress also talks about recording her debut pop album, including its first single, which also features Rivera’s boyfriend, G.O.O.D. Music rapper Big Sean.
“She stands before the mirror, frowning at everything she sees. Then, she turns to me and asks what I think? She knows she is beautiful, but if I say this I am disagreeing with her. It is a devilish trap women make to torture men.”
— ‘Some Knucklehead,’ according to Brittany S. Pierce

Summary: ”For a girl who had thought that no one would ever truly love her again after her father died, it seems such a rare and precious gift to have love, and not just from anyone, but from the person she most adores and admires out of all the people in the entire world.”
