"Thanks," Karofksy said gruffly, placing a small vase of wildflowers on her desk.
"For?" Quinn asked, surprised.
"Nigel loved Berry's show last night," he said, happily. "Meeting Nigel's old boss and her girlfriend afterward at the party was a surprise but apparently Berry knows them."
"I'm glad," Quinn said. "Rachel seems to know a lot of people. Her high school craziness really works for her now."
Karofsky snorted. "How did the roommate thing happen anyway?" he asked idly, while putting away his things. "The two of you were like oil and water back in Lima."
Quinn paused for a second, trying to think of a simple way to explain the rather convoluted relationships that connected her life to Rachel's. "It's a little complicated," she said finally. "How much do you remember about me in high school?"
"Cheerleader. Got pregnant. Glee. Hated Rachel," he said. "Had my own issues. Didn't pay too much attention to everyone else."
"Except the bullying," Quinn said.
Karofsky grimaced. "Except the bullying."
"Rachel's mother adopted my baby," Quinn said. "I got to know her after high school. She heard that Rachel needed a roommate, and recommended me. Rachel was desperate and agreed to share an apartment."
Notes: I originally planned for several scenes at the theater with Rachel, Dave, Miranda, Nigel, and Andy but I couldn't make them work. Hence the vague references in #76 and #77

"Did you tell Kurt Hummel where I work?" Quinn asked, watching her roommate cook dinner before heading to the theater.
"He's such a sweetie," Rachel said, not answering her.
"He's a leech!" Quinn said.
"He's very talented," Rachel protested.
"Okay, he's a talented leech!" Quinn said. "How does he know where I work?"
"I might have mentioned it last week?" Rachel said. "Finn is coming home and he wants to give him a surprise party."
"I haven't seen Finn since high school," Quinn said. "He didn't mention a party."
"No? Maybe I misunderstood," Rachel said. "What did he say?"
"He mentioned something about your show opening on Broadway," Quinn said. "Why didn't you tell me?" She wanted to add "first" but they were roommates, just barely friends now.
"It's not a sure thing, Quinn," Rachel said. "There are interested investors but none who've said yes."
"Kurt mentioned Miranda Priestly," Quinn said.
"That's a misunderstanding," Rachel said. "Her daughters came to Career Day at NYADA last week and saw my session. Ms. Priestly wanted to thank me for being honest about how hard an acting career is and not aggrandizing it."
"So, not an investor," Quinn said.
Rachel shrugged. "Sorry. Taste?"
Note: Yes, I think Miranda Priestly would do that. As a dyed-in-the-wool Mirandy shipper, I believe Miranda does consider some things more important than her magazine and fashion, like her daughters (and Andy of course).

Kurt waltzed into her office, wearing something she assumed was one of his creations. He certainly had a unique sense of style, she reluctantly admitted.
She wasn't going to ask who'd told him where she worked. Probably some Gleek who that they were helping her out. Possibly Rachel. If so, words would be had tonight.
"What do you want, Hummel?" she asked, after giving him several minutes to stew before acknowledging his existence.
"Quinnie," he said. "My dear Quinn," he corrected himself, when she glared at the use of the hated nickname. "A little bird told me Rachel's show will be moving to Broadway next month."
"What does that have to do with me?" Quinn asked, keeping her surprise at the news off her face.
"Opening night!" he said, excitedly.
"I'm assuming you're going," he said.
"Hmmm." She wasn't going to give him any help with gossip about Rachel.
"You have to let me dress you," he said.
"What's in it for you?"
"The satisfaction of seeing you looking fabulous on the red carpet," he said, winking.
Kurt sighed dramatically. "Miranda Priestly is rumored to be one of the investors."
"Of course," Quinn murmured, his purpose becoming clear.
Note: Miranda Priestly will most likely not personally appear in this story but this AU now includes her world, though not really as a crossover.
