Funny she could face down murderous demons without flinching but trying to tell a girl she liked her was something Nancy couldn't handle.
The summer after graduation from McKinley leaves Rachel Berry wanting to make one final collection of Lima memories before heading off to New York and NYADA. Meanwhile, Quinn Fabray is convinced she'll never make it out of Ohio. This is a romance, first disguised as tentative friendship. This a story of what happens when two people can't help the fact that they're made for each other.
"It’s been a long time since Nancy Wheeler had…a pal.
Not to be dismissive of smartass exes or they-grow-up-so-fast little buddies or whatever Jonathan has turned into after their drift, but they’re not…a pal, Nancy reasons. What does world saving and nearly dying for each other over and over mean you are to one another? Family, probably. Blood siblings, sure, bonded palm to palm beyond any choice you might have after the fact.
Robin, though. Robin, it turns out, is someone Nancy gets to keep choosing.
Robin, Nancy thinks with a weird sense of triumph blooming in her chest, Robin is Nancy’s pal."
Nancy keeps Robin company at Family Video some warm night in June, and tries not to think about that electric feeling crackling inside her chest.
