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.

Oh! And before I forget; the painting on the building outside Kurt & Rachel’s window changed between 4x03 and 4x04. I don’t have screen caps, but in 4x03 it reads S-E-? (X or W?) and in 4x04 it’s something purple. Might be a detail to look out for, if it changes often? I need to rewatch the episode, but can’t quite manage it yet.

I've tried to write up reactions to this episode several times, but I'm not making progress beyond a bunch of jumbled impressions and malformed logic. It's going to take me a while. This one hurt so much more than I expected or was prepared for.

yet more spec for 4x04  )

Bring on Thursday/Friday. The antici...pation of this episode is driving me nuts. I want to see how the patterns manifest.

I'll just add to this post as things occur to me.

Just jotting these down before I forget.

In no particular order )

(ETAx4: now with more speculative blather!)

And a Lucretius quote, because I like it and think it possibly relevant:
"For if anything is so transformed as to overstep its own limits, this means the immediate death of what it was before."

spoilers for 4x04 )

some spoilery stuff too )

I'll try to toss together some thoughts on 4x02 at some point. Mostly I'm just digging on the NY is Heaven (But Kurt had to bring it to Rachel somehow?) confirmation we got in the episode and just loving Blaine and Brittany and everything about this show in S4 so far (still lukewarm on Britney Spears' music, but whatever).

I'm just taking a little break from the mad sprint that is trying to finish this last chapter before the premiere Thursday (and yes, I'm still horribly behind with comment replies and email and argh) and this is the last chapter of the story, but I will write an epilogue to get my desire for 8 chapters satisfied, but! I caught the new promo for 4x01 and, um?

Kurt related spoilers )

All right, now that's out of my system, back to the pornographing.
