Dylan walked out onto the auditorium stage, the bottom his 'Impossible To Play' t-shirt drooping past his black belt clad waist which held up his blue jeans, covered at the bottom by black combat boots, with his guitar case in hand. He walked across the stage and back again, admiring the massive room and the last year he has spent in it. The last year he has spent with the glee club.

The highs, the lows and the bumps in between. From his first audition to coming together in New York. From Sectionals, to Regionals, to Nationals. From falling in love with Brittany to falling in love with Jenn. From singing motown to heavy rock to Broadway to country. From 'Red' to 'Time For Miracles'. Every song counted when he was in that glee club. And he loved every singing every single second of it. He then took a seat on a single stool sat in the very middle of the stage, placing the guitar case on his lap. He closed his eyes and let the memories from the auditorium take over.

He then smiled at the empty room before turning to the screen.

"Hey." He said, smiling his megawatt smile.

"I just want to say thanks to whoever is reading this. If you are, it means you've read at least a little bit of what's happened with my life with the New Directions. And I want to thank you for taking an interest. It just goes to show that my life isn't actually that boring." He said before opening the guitar case and pulling out a 'Gibson Hummingbird True Vintage' acoustic guitar.

"And I mean, I thank every single member of the New Directions for helping me through everything. Mr. Schue was amazing. He would always be there and not just as a teacher but as a friend. So were all of the students in glee." Dylan said, throwing the strap over his shoulder and gently putting the case down.

"I mean. Even Finn. Sure he's a little bit on the dopey side, he's indecisive, he's a little on the abrasive side. But he's the glee club captain and he didn't just help me, he helped everyone else through tough times." Dylan said.

"And Sam. We didn't really talk much but he stood up to Karofsky with me against Kurt and he was good to Quinn."

"And there's Tina. She's so talented and she doesn't even know it. But she is amazing. And she was so nice to me when I was going through the dark parts of my life."

"Artie. Sure we fought over a girl but we were good friends before that and we're slowly building up that friendship again now that none of us are with Brittany. And he's helping me with my guitar."

"Lauren. The 'Big Ass Heart'. And she does have one. She got Mercedes out of her funk during the benefit and she's been awesome. Plus, she's beat up a couple of douchebags for me."

"Puck. I'm still gracious for his Casanova-esque advice. And I know he's gracious for me being gracious. Of course, I know he's also gracious for the dancing advice I gave him in return. He definitely needed it."

"Hey!" Puck called from offstage.

"Just kidding!" Dylan replied before turning back to the screen.

"Mercedes. The next Aretha Franklin. She's been so supportive of everything, except the whole Vocal Adrenaline thing but when I came back, she even said that they needed me. But they didn't. She was just expressing her usual awesomeness."

"Mike. The Donald O'Connor to my Gene Kelly. You only just come up short to me dancing wise and your singing is improving. But seriously, you're such a cool guy and you've been so kind. Thanks again, man."

"Santana. My hot blooded Latina comedy partner. How we laugh together at god knows what and we can actually agree on things unlike you and a certain Jack Harmon. But you're awesome."

Dylan then looked down and sniffled before looking back up, tears now visible in his eyes.

"Kurt. You are amazing. How you've climbed mountains and walked up waterfalls to get to where you are is incredible and how you were always there for me. And not just me but for everyone else too. You are the bravest person I have ever met and you are just inspirational."

"Rachel. My little pocket diva. What a pair we are, hey? Always finding each other in tears and making each other better. And how you'd cheer me up by doing Fleetwood Mac and Katy Perry and how you'd make me cry singing Yentl and your own song. And how you would go out of your way to help me. You're amazing."

"Oh, Lucy. My little Quinncess. You let me live in your own house. That just shows how amazing you truly are. You are strong. You are brave. You are amazing. Underneath that 'Head Bitch In Charge' attitude, there is a perfect, shining star that I can see. Let it shine Quinnie, let it shine. I love you."

"Brittany. My sweet little blonde Brittany. You have been there with me every step of the way. From when you thought I was a surfer when I first auditioned to when we had that talk in New York. You are perfect. And make sure Santana doesn't let go of that."

"Jenn…Jenn, Jenn, Jenn. I love you. I'll love you until the end of time. No matter what happens, a part of me will always love you. I love how you're independent. I love your humor. I love your bright red hair. I love your dark brown eyes. I love your weight, your height. I love everything about you. Do not, I repeat, do not change to be with me because you are perfect. You are beautiful. You are amazing. No one can take that from you."

Dylan smiled, smearing the tear tracks so they turned invisible before carrying on.

"Mitchell. You have grown so much, dude. You've grown into a man. I don't know whether it's frequent 'accidental' ODs on medication or hanging around Jack too much but it's worked and you have been so helpful for me and you've been so awesome."

"Oh, Jack. Don't deny it but you were there for me. It was in your own egoistic kind of way but you were still there. And you took care of Jenn while I was at Vocal Adrenaline. And you were a big help with scraping out the insides of the Vocal Adrenaline watermelon. You should probably think of a CIA agent for a future career if Broadway doesn't work out."

Dylan then strummed a chord before tuning up the strings. After that, he looked to the screen again and pointed.

"And you 2. Yeah, ZeroBen and Soulless Warlock. Thanks for letting Mitchell in my story and for letting Jack off of his leash."

"Watch your beak, Happy Feet!"

"Kidding!" the blonde replied before raising his eyebrows to the screen as if to say 'what's his problem?'.

"So as to say thank you to the both of you and to all of the readers, I stole Jack and Mitchell for them to help me with a number. It actually didn't take me that long to teach it to them which was a surprise. But it all comes together really well and I think you'll like it." Dylan then said before gently strumming the guitar introduction and beginning to sing on his cue.

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road

Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go

Mitchell then entered from the side, an Ibanez SGT120NT being strummed as he sang and made his way across the stage to stand by Dylan.

So make the best of this test, and don't ask why

Jack came in, plucking his Washburn EA20 as he sang his line.

It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

Jenn then came out, playing her Ovation CC44 Celebrity Deluxe as she stood next to Dylan, singing her heart out.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right

Dylan smiled at the others before looking to the front and singing.

I hope you had the time of your life

More strumming could be heard as the curtain raised, everyone in the glee club strumming guitars in time with the others. They were harmonizing beautifully before Dylan stepped forward again to start the next verse.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind

Mitchell stepped forward and sang with the blonde boy.

Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time

Jack matched their level onstage and joined in.

Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial

Jenn stepped forward and finished the verse.

For what it's worth it was worth all the while

Mitchell and Jack then stepped back, joining the others on the steps as Dylan and Jenn sang two lines together.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

Dylan played a guitar solo as the others then came down and made a semi circle around him, harmonizing again before they sang their hearts out.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

They then strummed the 4th chord before singing at a lower volume.

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right

I hope you had the time of your life

Dylan strummed the last chord before waving to the screen and joining the others in walking offstage.


Song used is 'Good Riddance (The Time Of Your Life)' by Green Day, the American Idiot version.

I'd just like to say that I picked one auditorium memory from each chapter that actually had an auditorium memory XD

There we go! That is the end of 'He's Alive'.

I shall mirror Dylan's words and thank all of the readers, reviewers and everyone who has taken their time to read my first published fanfiction.

I would also like to especially thank ZeroBen and Soulless Warlock for letting me borrow Mitchell and Jack and I hope I have done their characters justice.

Once again, thank you and watch out for Dylan, Jenn and new character Alex in the second installment of 'He's Alive' which takes you through to season 3. The title of which actually has a title: 'Through Our Eyes'! Yay! :)
