So I would like to think that they become unexpected Facebook friends after Santana discovers that they both “like” BreadStiX—Santana for the awesome food, Brad for the charming waitress who works there—sometime shortly following Santana’s graduation.
At first, Santana sends Brad a friend request as a joke—she and Brittany find his profile page one night while they’re kind of tipsy and things just progress from there—so it totally surprises her when Brad actually accepts it.
After that, Santana and Brad do the whole “passively liking each other’s statuses” thing for a long time, until the happy day when this happens:
Not gonna lie to you: I’m kind of in love with your question.
Thanks for writing in!
So, of course, this is just headcanon, but I kind of like to think that as soon as Reggie Salazar’s commercial aired, Brittany sent Santana a relationship request, not only to show Santana that she didn’t have to go through everything alone, but also because Brittany is a political genius and knows that if you own a label, it’s harder for people to make something of it with you.
I’d also like to think that Santana accepted that request—proudly so.
I’m thinking it went down something like this:
Back in the heyday of the fandom, there were lots of folks who regularly posted Brittanalyses. Nowadays, there are less of us—and even fewer who do so regularly.
Here are some folks who have posted Brittanalyses in the past, along with links to where you can find many of their previous posts:
Note that the above mentioned analysts are currently either retired or semi-retired from the Brittana fandom—i.e., they no longer write regular Brittanalysis posts, and some of them no longer watch Glee or keep up with Brittana happenings in canon.
Please respect their privacy as you enjoy their archived works.
Now, like I said, there are still some “currently publishing” Brittanalysts hanging around the fandom. Here are some folks who are still currently posting Brittanalyses, along with links to where you can find their previous posts:
Please note that both Roch and Lily are very busy outside our little corner of the internet and may or may not have the time and/or desire to write Brittanalyses relating to the upcoming Glee Season Six.
It is at their respective discretions as to whether or not they will field Brittana-related questions and/or write regular Brittanalyses once Season Six gets underway.
For more thinky-thoughts related to our girls, check out the “Brittanalysis" tag, where you’ll find work not only from some of the stellar analysts listed above but analysis, ideas, meta commentary, theories, and observations from stellar folks all over the fandom.
As for myself—time, energy, and source material permitting—I will likely continue to analyze Brittana from now until the Glee series finale, so feel free to send me Brittany, Santana, and Brittana questions if you ever want to do so.
In the meantime, happy reading! There are lots of great posts out there.
Thanks for writing in!
Brittana otp: I just want you 4x04 *ignores all context from this episode except for the cuteness that is this scene* Brittany looks at Santana like Santana is the absolute best person in the world Like you can actually see Brittany thinking ”How is Santana even real? She’s too perfect” And then the way she kisses Santana? She just melts into it like she’s coming home—like she is finally for once exactly where she wants to be And then there’s Santana and I mean just look her her dopey besotted smile in that first shot! If you were ever wondering what being twitterpated looks like that would be it right there And then that dorky sweet happy way she leans in to kiss Brittany? It’s just fucking adorable Like I bet they kissed this way when they were in the sandbox in kindergarten playing house I swear to god and I bet they’ll kiss this way when they’re actually married and have 1.5 kids and a house and dog How do we even cope with the cuteness of them? I can’t
Thank you to everyone who messaged me.
Dylan, the author of Should Have Asked for Directions and the original victim of the theft, contacted me regarding the matter. Dylan pursued legal action against the thief and shut down the thief’s production, so I’m in the clear, in terms of TKTD.
Brittany doesn’t mean to lay down a rap verse for the remix of Mercedes’ hit single—it just sort of happens.
DeShawn has Mercedes in the studio, touching up some vocals for the radio remix of “Shakin’ My Head,” and Brittany and Santana have tagged along.
(“—you know, for mortal support,” Brittany says.)
Since they’re there, DeShawn has Brittany and Santana helping to lay the track, backing Mercedes with harmonies—which works out pretty well, considering that Brittany and Santana know the song super well from being on the mall tour.
They’ve already done a couple of decent takes when DeShawn gets a call from the label and ducks outside to answer it.
"Back in a sec," he promises, and that’s all it takes.
