Back At The Start: New Directions 2.0

Disclaimer: I don't own Glee, RIB does.

Summary: It's 25 years since the original New Directions graduated. After the all of the original Glee clubbers had graduated no one new wanted to join so Glee was effectively disbanded after Blaine, Sam, Artie and Tina graduated. Now they're back in Lima and they've brought their kids with them so Mr Schue wants to start Glee up again. Will they be as successful as their parents? SYOC

Chapter 1: Prologue

Mr Schue's POV

I couldn't believe it had been 25 years since my original Glee club graduated. It's never been the same, after them no one else wanted to join Glee. I went back to being just another teacher. It's like Rachel said- being a part of something special makes you special. Being a part of Glee made me feel special.

I kept up hope that one day I'd teach their kids in the same way I taught them. And now my dream has become a reality- the original New Directions are back and their kids are coming to McKinley. I can't wait!

A/N: So that's just a short prologue to introduce the story. Basically I've submitted loads of OC's to SYOC stories before so I thought I'd try my hand at one. The rules are as follows:

-No completely unbelievable characters

-Submit by PM not review. Any characters submitted by review will not be accepted.

-No characters that are just direct duplicates of their parents.

-No characters that are completely perfect (no one is) and no characters that are based on you.

Okay so that's the annoying bit out the way, now time for the parent pairings:

-Finn and Rachel Hudson- After graduation Finn and Rachel went to New York together and got married in Central Park. Rachel went to NYADA and became a famous broadway actress winning 5 Tony awards during her career. Finn graduated from NYU with a major in Education and taught music at a high school.
