It was just another day for Lea Michele. She'd gone to an award show... we don't know which one... the background is blurry. She wore a lovely dress, her hair was great and even though the photographer was shooting her head on, the pictures turned out better than those of a normal person. It was a good day.
When she was finally able to escape the loving masses and return home, Lea got into some comfy sweats and settled in on the couch to watch some TV. She flipped through the channels, almost surprised to find that nothing was on. But at the last minute, she noticed an older Kevin Kline movie and couldn't resist.
The movie was funny. She couldn't get over how funny. In fact, Kevin Kline reminded her very much of the character Kurt on that show she appeared on every Tuesday. She decided that Rachel Berry would very much like Kevin's character as he too shared a deep appreciation of all things Barbara. Just as Kevin was getting ready to prove to an audio tape that he was not gay, Lea's phone rang. Now who could that be?
Of course it was her super secret bestie Stacy London. Stacy wasted no time getting to the point.
Stacy: Lea, I can see you through your living room window and that outfit is not flattering at all. Is it a self esteem issue? Don't you dare use the 'C' word! Comfort is no reason to look hideous in sweats! Are they at least designer?
Lea was temporarily stunned by the random tirade and couldn't think of anything to respond. Though she did very quickly consider moving.
Stacy: Anyway, get changed. I found these two tickets to the launching of the Titanic and you're my plus one. Give me five minutes to cross the street and I'll pick out up.
Again, Lea was too shocked to answer.
For whatever reason, Lea actually allowed Stacy to take her to the launch of the Titanic. In truth, she needed a vacation. Her life had become very hectic. A day trip on a famous luxury liner was just the ticket. She skipped aboard, almost bursting with excitement. It was only when she saw a number of reclining deck chairs that she decided on how she was going to spend her afternoon.
Dianna had been bugging her to read the final book in the Hunger Games series ever since that one night... And now she actually had the time! How great! She curled up, devouring each page. She was nearly halfway through when all of a sudden, there was a terrible crash! The boat was taking on water! Who could have predicted that the Titanic would sink! Lea looked to her book, suddenly seeing it for what it truly was: a survival guide. Like Katniss, she climbed as high as she could, determined to keep the water from ruining her still amazing hair.
It took another day before she was rescued. When she awoke, she was in a very uncomfortable hospital bed. Some odd man in ridiculous safety gear came toward her. It really was like The Hunger Games! They were going to tell her she'd lost a leg or had some serious burns or something. Wait... that was mostly Peeta. She could totally play Peeta... She was hastily informed that she was in the middle of a decontamination because the Titanic was actually secretly carrying nuclear waste that everyone aboard had been exposed to. As her condition was explained, Lea made a solemn promise. The next time she saw Stacy...
And that's how the Stacy London/Lea Michele friendship started and broke up before anyone ever knew it existed.
