This scene hurts so freaking beautifully.
Santana and Brittany know each other so well. They understand how their minds work and how they react to the world around them.
What is the most beautiful thing about their relationship is that they don’t seem to give a shit about what other people think of them. They don’t care that the world thinks of Santana as an emotionally walled up bitch or that they think that Brittany doesn’t seem to be intelligent. Well they do care but they also don’t care because all they really care about is each other. They live in a world of just them two; everything else is second.
I mean look at this scene and many others with Brit-Brit and Santana. They are in the middle of a busy as school corridor and they are having this very personal and loving interaction. The school doesn’t know about their relationship yet and here they are showing off their love for one another.
Everyone time Santana is 100% honest (well maybe not the dirt locker-but she is hurting people!) with Brittany is in public. Brittany is actually 110% honest with Santana in public. They seem to live in this bubble where the rest of the world does not matter, if they don’t matter then who gives a shit if they listen in because their relationship is so much more important.
Anyway I am off track but this scene is beautiful. Santana is not just trying to make Brittany feel better; she is speaking the truth. The truth is undeniable and I don’t think Santana understands why the world is not as clued up to Brittany’s genius. She is stating truth in their most intimate environment (yes the corridor). We know this is truth simply because these two beautiful people share their truths the their little bubble of public space. Santana knows that Brittany is a genius and that it is why it is so shocking to her that Brittany failed senior year and why she is not shocked when Brittany gets into MIT. Santana knows, she fucking knows that Brit is the biggest Unicorn in the entire world. Hummel simply does not compare.
