With the exception if casting Katy Sagal as Artie’s mom, Nancy Abrams, Glee was relatively silent about Artie’s home life other than a reference to his dad’s willingness to drive him to events if they could not get a handicapped capable bus.
I’ve been intentionally vague about Artie’s family in my stories, assuming he was an only child like Kitty because there’s never been any references or hints about any siblings, and Wonder-ful implied that it was just he and his mom. I changed my mind when writing The Wildebrams Season Six, so I have taken the time to create a family for him who will be written into appropriate places in my other stories as they are written and I go back and edit my back catalog so they will remain (relatively) consistent in all of writing.
In doing this I looked for president in other fanfic. Historically in most Artie centric (mostly Quartie) fanfic I’ve read, it had established that everyone in that family had names that started with an A, but that went out the window when Glee canonized his mom as Nancy Abrams. Typically he had one or two younger siblings (a boy and a girl), and occasionally, but not usually an older college age brother. Gigundoly has established the idea of an older sister, and I fell in love with the idea (but I changed the name, personality, and other details, of course!). Continue reading →
At the height of its popularity, Glee was one of the most popular shows on television and once held the top spot with the most charted hits on the Billboard Top 40. To give you an idea of how huge that is, in the past that honor was held by Elvis Presley and The Beatles. They were recently surpassed by someone named Drake who I would be hard pressed to name a song he’s recorded. How that happened, I will never know. But I digress.
With television and streaming producers running out of ideas, it seems like every even remotely successful show of the past is getting a reboot of some kind. As more of the Glee fan base moves into young adulthood, and starts to get nostalgic, it’s only natural that the idea of a Glee reboot (a term often used interchangeably with the term reunion – more on that later) is brought up. Up until recently I’ve mostly just chuckled and rolled my eyes at the idea, but the idea does not seem to want to die, and I am finally putting my thoughts on the matter down in a coherent form.
Author’s Notes: The following takes place during a future chapter of Quartie Ever After when Quinn is pregnant with Artie’s baby. Quinn and Artie live in LA, but are visiting Lima when she decided to visit her former teacher and make a request of him. This will make more sense to you if you read that and Quartie Headcannon first.
Disclaimer: This story takes place 18 years after Beth’s birth, and accepts everything that happened in Glee cannon, even the parts I hated.
Author’s Notes: The following takes place during a future chapter of Quartie Ever After when Quinn has lunch with her adult daughter Beth and they end up having a shocking conversation. Quinn and Artie live in LA, but are visiting Lima. This will make more sense to you if you read that and Quartie Headcannon first.
Disclaimer: Thie story mentions sexual assault and character death.
Quartie One-Shots andTeasers Chapter 3: Tina Gets A Dose of Uncomfortable Truth:
Author’s Notes: The following takes place during a future chapter of Quartie Ever After when Quinn is pregnant with Artie’s baby and the former glee club members throw her a baby shower. Quinn and Artie live in LA, but are visiting Lima. This will make more sense to you if you read that and Quartie Headcannon first.
Disclaimer: This story takes place 18 years after Beth’s birth and neither Quinn nor Artie have had much success in the relationship department. Their frustration and bitterness over that definitely influence them in this scene, so keep that in mind.
The story accepts everything that happened in Glee cannon, even the parts I hated.
My fellow Wildebrams shippers should brace themselves for an uncomfortable revelation.
I love this song and it just shows what a massive talent Becca Tobin (Kitty) was. I’m at a loss to think of a glee club member of any generation that could have performed this song with the vocals and choreography invited anywhere near as well as she did. It’s a shame that it is one of only two solos she did on the three seasons she was on the show.
Quartie One Shots and Teasers Chapter 02: Quinn’s Appology By Wilde Abrams
Author’s Notes: The following is an excerpt from my story The Wildeabrams Season Six (Ch 20: Confused). I am including it here because I know that not all of my readers read both Quartie and Wildebrams, so more people will see it here.
This scene takes place after the Brittana/Klaine wedding (yes, Quinn was there in my version), where Quinn and Artie got together a couple days later, to catch up; and Quinn feels the need to give him an explanation/Apology for how she treated him after the events at the skatepark in the episode Big Brother. Unfortunately RIB never cared enough about their friendship to give us a scene like this and we are just expected to assume that they made up.
