So you've found your way over to [community profile] openingyourselfuptojoy , I see.  That's great!  We're thrilled to have you.  Welcome to our communal madness!

Of course, that's the thing about communities: they only work because of their members.  So go ahead, guys, and introduce yourselves here.  Meet some of the people you'll be tossing squee and ideas around with.  Let us know who you are.

 Welcome to Opening Yourself Up To Joy! We’re a Glee gen/multi-shipping fan community on DW, and we’re here to have fun. After all, by its very definition, Glee is about opening yourself up to joy--though, to be fair, sometimes it likes to make us sob a little, first.

This is a place for people who like to play around in the world Glee created, and who like liking things with other people.  You know--fans. Fandom. Fannish things. There’s room for everyone here, so long as we can play nice and remember that different people like different things. Some people write epic AUs; other people write the silliest, crackiest drabbles or the most heartbreaking Blangst. Some fans do incredibly detailed analysis of a character’s body language in a scene; others like to look at all the layers of parallelism Glee uses, and others like to do meta looking at archetypes or colors or broader themes. Some of us like to take apart the show and figure out how it works and what it’s trying to say...and some of us like to re-iminagine it in Westeros. Some people don’t get much out of meta, but they’ve got the best headcanons they’d like to share; others aren’t much for words but they’re absolute wizards with gifs or gifsets or graphics. Some people make vids; some people can draw; some people don’t make things but love seeing what other people can do. It’s all good.

We have only one rule (but here are a few guidelines to help you stick to it): WANK IS ONLY FOR THE CHARACTERS.

Your friendly local mods are [personal profile] crown_of_weeds , [personal profile] narceus , [personal profile] needs_more_green , and [personal profile] naderegen .  Feel free to message us with any questions, comments, anything at all.  We only bite in situations with a pre-designated safeword.  Promise.

Much like New Directions, everybody who’s ever auditioned for this group has gotten in...but we’d love it if you’d sing us a little song, tell us who you are all the same.

Lastly, but not at all least!  Take a look at our Weekly Schedule of Awesomeness and Fun )

Some Links Of Note:

Did you know you can make gifsets on DW too? [personal profile] likeasouffle  has the code here.

The lovely[personal profile] four_tens  is providing us with a series of crazy-detailed episode recaps, starting from the Pilot, which you can find here.
