Introducing: Quartie One Shots:
By Wilde Abrams
Author’s Notes: Welcome to my new project Quartie One Shots. As I explained in the introduction to my story Quartie Headcannon, I have always suspected that there was more to Quinn and Artie’s relationship/friendship than we got to see on the show itself. There were far too many background moments between them, and the genuine affection in their goodbye to eachother in the episode Goodbye was too strong for there not to be. If you read my other works you see that I often feature their friendship. Quartie Headcannon gives you a general overview, but I also want to delve into it a bit deeper.
Quartie One Shots will primarily take specific moments in Glee cannon, add “deleted scene” type things, and flesh them out. I may possibly create all original material as well. We shall see. These will not necessarily be presented in chronological order. Most stories will remain clearly in platonic friendship territory, but I can’t promise that it might not stray into something more if inspiration strikes.
Quartie used to be a fairly popular ship in fanfiction when Quinn was still on the show, and there are around 300 Quartie stories on fanfiction dot net. Kevin and Dianna are good friends in real life and wanted their characters paired in season 3, but RIB gave us more Quick, Shugartie, and Quoe instead.
Don’t worry, Wildebrams I’d still my OTP, but Quartie is interesting and fun to read and write about as well.
