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.
Presenting: The Wildebrams Saga
As many of you know, my multi-chapter Wildebrams stories The Ballad of Kitty and Artie, A New Beginning, and Wedding Song are one continuous story. To help clarify and promote this, I have decided to retitle these existing stories under the name The Wildebrams Saga.
Effective immediately, The Ballad of Kitty And Artie and Wedding Song are re-titled The Wildebrams Saga 1: The Ballad of Kitty and Artie and The Wildebrams Saga 4: Wedding Song.
I’m also announcing 3 additional parts of the saga, the first chapters of which will appear in the next few weeks.
ANNOUNCING: NEW BEGINNINGS and NEW NEW DIRECTIONS
(A rewrite and expansion of A New Beginning)
With the next few weeks I will begin publishing an almost complete rewrite of this story which was first published over a year ago, but was never finished.
First, let me give you some background explanation. Two and a half years ago when I started writing Glee fanfic, I was a very angry Glee fan. To me, the best part of glee, on top of all of the compelling characters, was the glee club itself. But, in the middle of season 5 the writers, in a knee-jerk reaction to the death of Cory Monteith, decided to take Glee in a completely different direction, ending the glee club in Lima storyline and writing anyone not in New York out completely, and in the process made it not feel like Glee anymore.
[ FANFIC ] An Unexpected Broadway Visitor (6×13)
By Wilde Abrams
== Richard Rogers Auditorium, New York – Late Spring 2020
Michael Chang entered the vast Broadway auditorium and found his way to his seat near the center and only a handful of rows beyond the orchestra pit. He hoped that the extra expense he’s incurred in getting such a good seat would make it easier for him to spot the person he’d been looking for, the person he’s come all the way to New York to see, in the hopes that she would be able to help him win back the heart of the love of his life.
In Commemoration of the One Year Anniversary of the Airing of Glee’s final episode, I present to you my loyal readers a sneak peek at the unfinished draft of my version of Dreams Come True … Enjoy!

An Unexpected Reunion (Homexoming (6×02)
UPDATE: With the text revision of Wildebrams Season Six (Wilde Abrams Seaaon Six One Shots) in September 2015 this chapter got a significant rewrite to make it fit better with the rest of the overall season. But I’m also proud of this version, so I am including it here. The original version of this, along with the other chapters will also be made available on my website under Fanfic Archives.
######## Kitty’s Confession #######
Note: This takes place immediately after Unexpected After Prom Bonding.
WARNING: This chapter deals with the discussion of past child molestation.
## ## ##
Later that evening, Artie and Kitty were dancing at the prom. Artie was still wearing his tux, which served as a reminder of the events earlier in the evening, and how under-dressed she was.
There was a time when she would never have dreamed of doing something so selfless as giving away her prom dress to someone else, let alone someone she didn’t even get along with most of the time; but she had realized that being popular meant nothing if you didn’t also have friends – real friends, not like the ones she had on the Cheerios and football team, who were only friends when it suited them or they got something from it.
Opening Yourself Up To Hate:
Some of you may have noticed that I didn’t post a story or tweet about someone else’s story last night. It’s been my intention to promote a story whether it’s one of mine or someone else’s everyday during the Fic-A-Thon. I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do that last night, but after the events of the last two days, I just couldn’t get my heart into it. I was up half the night last night and eventually fell asleep in front of my tablet.
