Supposedly, this is the way that last scene between Emma and Will was to have been played out in the season 2 finale. To be honest, I'm not sure if it's real, but it makes sense to me and I think it's kind of sweet, so I chose to believe that this is how it really happened. *grin* So my little ficlit is based on this scene more than the one filmed.
INT. HALLWAY — DAY
A BANNER stretches across the hallway — "CONGRATULATIONS NEW DIRECTIONS. 12th PLACE AT NATIONALS. GOOD ON YA!"
Reveal Will, looking up at the sad not very grand poster. Stoic. Emma comes up.
No..Yes. And embarrassed. All of that work, a whole year. We were so cocky.
You'll get them next year.
(then, looking right at him)
I think mistakes make people grow. Sometimes people can make a big mistake. One that wastes a whole year of their lives. One that keeps them from the thing they want the most.
He smiles, now looking right back at her.
And how do those people make up for those big mistakes? The ones that keep them from the thing that they want the most?
They have to work really hard to make up for it. Spend at least the whole summer focused on nothing but making things right.
The whole summer?
Maybe even longer.
A lot longer.
