I think it's easy to say that out of all of the fandoms I've ever been a part of, The Social Network has the best fanfiction from top to bottom. Easily. There is an absurd amount of quality fics that have been produced since the movie came out a little over eighteen months ago, and it continues to be produced. Because I really enjoy making lists, I decided to make a list of my top ten favorite fics ever. Not only does this allow me to flail over the beautiful, beautiful words, but it also allows me to organize my favorites and have the links all in one place.

So. A couple of things first: in hopes of making this list a bit more interesting, I allowed myself to pick only one fic per author. This means it's a little less accurate than it should be, but then it would consist of like three different authors, and it would prevent me from showcasing some of my favorite fics written by other people.

This was a lot harder than I thought. There is no particular order; ranking them would be impossible. Now, without further ado...



i am never doing this againCollapse )

Title: The Price of Fame
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Characters: Rachel Berry
Spoilers: 2x01
Summary: A mostly unedited, very short reflection post-Sunshine leaving for Vocal Adrenaline.


When she learns Sunshine will be transferring to Carmel to join Vocal Adrenaline, her first instinct is to sing.


This is what it's like, being Rachel Berry, where Broadway spotlights and the paparazzi haunt her dreams like nothing but distant fantasies she so desperately wants to make true. It is the only thing she yearns for more than popularity (and popularity is part of the package deal).


It's such a part of her, performing, that the idea of someone new, someone better, coming along and stealing the stardom she's worked so hard for is unfathomable. So she plots. And it never ends well for her.


(In hindsight, sending Sunshine to a crackhouse was not her smartest idea; it would have been her fault-partially, at the very least-had she gotten killed, and Rachel simply couldn't have that on her conscious. Or on her record. Directors aren't likely to take kindly to felon ingenues to off their competition, should that tendency flare up again.)


This time, while her actions may have kept herself in the spotlight, they have also made it harder for her to win.


She's not so sure which one she'd prefer.
