This is a GREAT story ! D
There is just one thing I wanted to note (and I hope it does NOT sound like I am being critical or anything).
Like I said ... this story is really great D …. but ... in reading through it causes me to pause and wonder ... WHY do the fanfic writers on this board ALWAYS seem to make Azimio out to be 'the big bad violent homophobe guy' in their writings?
Ryan Murphy has NEVER portrayed Azimio as being any more homophobic or violent than Dave or Finn or anyone else on the show - YET - it seems on this board almost every writer wants to make Azimio out to be this horrific violent, ignorant, ghetto, homophobe AND 'the drive' behind all the homophobia and possible violence in the school.
That's unfair and does NOT fall into anything related to how Ryan Murphy has presented this character.
If anything Glee has traditionally shown Azimio to be 'a follower' - NOT 'the LEAD troublemaker' .
(If you notice – Azimio only seems to slushy and name call the ‘loser’ kids when Dave or some other jock is around … a clear indication that Azimio just wants to fit-in with Dave and the other more ‘popular’ kids).
Also - I have both lived in and visited small towns in Ohio - and trust me - if Azimio were one of the few black kids at an all-white/nearly all-white school - there is NO WAY he would be the trouble-maker with anyone (let alone the leader of homophobic and violent acts).
And - most of the black people that I had met while in Ohio were about the most open-minded and accepting people anyone could ever encounter - (especially the black people who found themselves being among the few 'minorities' in ANY situation) - and I think this constant false (and violent and bigoted) presentation made of one of them is totally unfair.
If Azimio were TRULY one of the FEW black kids in an all-white / nearly all-white high school in small town Ohio (especially a middle class / upper middle-class one like Ryan Murphy presents McKinley as being) - from what I have seen of small town Ohio - he would NEVER have even had the opportunity (or incentive) to practice homophobia or any other act singling any 'one' group out.
This is because Azimio would KNOW that IF he did any such thing HE would be THE NEXT person "singled out"
(and Azimio actually appears to simply ‘look’ tougher than he may .actually even be in reality).
Ryan Murphy makes it abundantly clear that Azimio is NOT a violent person who’s filled with hatred and bigotry - so much as he is simply a big, fat, insecure dork who (in an effort to fit-in among his jock buddies) simply 'follows' the crowd in pulling pranks on (ex. slushying) and even making attempts at hazing ANYONE (no matter if gay or straight) who isn't popular or ‘in with the in crowd’ (like he's so desperately trying to be) - so why the writers on this board seem to want to present this kid as being some sort of " violent ignorant thuggish ghetto homophobe" is both offensive and confusing.
Again – the black people that I met when I stayed in Ohio (especially the jocks and other popular kids – but even the dorkier ones who just wanted a crowd to fit into) were actually some of the most open minded and accepting people that I had ever encountered in my whole life (and, in all honesty from what I could see, few, if any of them seemed to have had any interest whatsoever in anyone’s personal sexuality or orientation).
Also – it seems to me that - if someone like Azimio ever had a problem with Dave being gay - it would (in my humble opinion) be more than likely due to, perhaps, Azimio being mad over (for instance) having felt or imagined pressure (by Dave and his ‘popular crowd’) to cut someone out of his own life who he secretly and deeply cared about (ex. a cousin, an uncle or even another best friend – and not so much a brother or a boyfriend or anything, as I think it would be silly to have 1 show with more than 1 secretly-gay jock and almost no one would ever consider kicking a sibling out of their life just ‘to fit in with the crowd’) – all due to Azimio’s secret fear of being rejected by ‘the popular kids’ if he had decided to keep this person in his life.
Thanks for listening - and (other than this one annoyance with the presentation of the Azimio character) I think this was a really great story. )
