#go ahead and tell me Rachel doesn’t look like the awkward guy in a high school rom com #that has a crush on the head cheerleader but thinks the girl would never notice him #And let’s not mention Quinn’s knowing smirk in the first gif #She knows she holds some power over Rachel and she’s having fun with that
“Marry someone who laughs at the same things you do. Marry someone who isn’t afraid or embarrassed to hold your hand in public. Marry someone who wraps you up inside their coat in the winter. Marry someone who accepts your fears and phobias. Marry someone who gives you butterflies every time you hear their key in the door. Marry someone who doesn’t make you want to check your phone, because you know they will reply. Marry someone who waits with you to get on the train. Marry someone who understands that you need to be alone sometimes. Marry someone who calms you down when you get mad about stupid stuff, and never tells you it’s “only stupid stuff”. Marry someone who makes you want to be a better person. Marry someone who makes you laugh. Marry someone who you love. Marry your soulmate, your lover, your best friend.”

When you were singing that song, you were singing it to Finn and only Finn, right?
#Quinn has got it so bad for Rachel. She is like the living embodiment of a bully crush. ‘ONLY I CAN MAKE FUN OF HER HOW DARE YOU SHE’S MY PLAYTHING.’ Seriously Quinn - just realize that there’s a crazy huge very real possibility that you don’t actually hate Rachel Berry. Because I’m pretty sure Santana is running out of insults to hurl to see how long it takes for you to start macking on Rach.
She was talking directly to Rachel at that point. I know she started of as thanking the entirety of New Directions, but honestly, no one made an effort to reach out to her except Rachel.
When everyone was standing around say, “heyyy, where’s Quinn? I haven’t seen her all summer!” Rachel was the one to seek her out, step outside of her boundaries, and tell Quinn that she can come back to glee club when she’s ready.
When Quinn eventually did come back, everyone pushed her to the side and pegged her as “that crazy chick.” It was an open secret that Quinn was going through a rough patch, but not one single person took the time to help her. Then there was Rachel. Rachel came along and gave her advice. She showed that she cared. She didn’t fix Quinn by any means, but she helped get her on track so she could fix herself.
So when Quinn says “you loved me”? Yeah, there’s nothing you say to convince me that she wasn’t talking to Rachel and Rachel alone.
