You know how I said it would take me a long time to process this episode? Yeah, still going.

Here are some thoughts of self-acceptance and the possibility of forgiveness with a dash of "Teenage Dream" and fairies.

I started writing a brief crash course on Jungian individuation and archetypes, because I thought this bit of meta may need some greater context to not sound half-baked. But I've set it aside because I'm not sure how good a teacher I am, and I don't wish to be too presumptuous, so I will preface this meta with saying that if anyone wants me to explain this stuff a little better, I can give it a shot.

In the meantime, moar Jungian meta for Glee, with one further disclaimer: I do this for fun. This is stuff that comes more from self-study than rigorous academic study, so I invite people who are more skilled and educated in these things to correct, refine, or expand upon my thoughts.

Oh, and FWIW, I'm ignoring gendered stuff between Aminus vs. Anima and who gets which because Jung was stupid about gender. Glee does too many subtle and complex things with gender for that binary distinction to make sense to me anyway.

Blaine needs a new Animus, and he may be getting one. (4x07 spoilers) )

And that's my overthinking for this morning. Getting this stuff out helps me process the emotional fallout from the episode.

Glee's costuming is endlessly fascinating; I enjoyed this piece.

I am presently a most unsociable social slug, and I apologize. As I get closer to the end of my big fic, my brain is getting more and more restless and anxious, so I am really trying hard to stay on task before my brain bounces off on some tangential, avoidant frolic from which it does not wish to return.

I think this is one of the best write ups of Blaine's character I've read. It's also an excellent write up of the experience of depression. Without getting into TMI-land, I have a long, complicated history with depression, and Blaine really pings me as a fellow sufferer. I don't know that he's had a major episode yet, but the signs are all there that he will.

I nearly wrote a thing about Blaine and depression yesterday, because it's a difficult point in my writing in my big fic presently. But this essay helped clear my head, so I'll just say "What lookninja's said" and point. This line resonates with me particularly strongly (it's one of the metaphors I frame the illness with in my head): "Depression is a war" It's good Blaine is a fighter.
