Title: "[A Creature of] Newspaper Headlines and Telephoto Images"
Pairing: Santana/Brittany, Rachel/Quinn, Finn/Kurt [mentioned history in passing]
Rating: PG [May move up to R or NC-17]
Summary: Farmer's daughter runs away to the City of Angels in search of a more than provincial life.
Spoilers: Rocky Horror Glee Shoe/ S2 Ep. 5 [It's heavily AU but just in case I borrow anything else.]
Author Note: The title is borrowed from a sentence in the prologue of William J. Mann’s “How to Be a Movie Star: Elizabeth Taylor in Hollywood”. I usually don’t like posting anything until it’s at least 1000 words but I posted this because I’m in need of a Beta that is semi-knowledgeable [or interested] in regards to the time period, queer film history, and can help with editing mostly punctuation.
Disclaimer: This is an AU story set in 1941 and mentions real actors and actresses from the beginning of film history to 1941. Anything in which these historical figures interact with the fictional characters of “Glee” [owned by Ryan Murphy and FOX] is complete fiction, but many of their publicly known history were obtained mostly from books, internet articles, and blogs dealing with queer film history.
