"How often do you go back to Lima," Rachel asked.

"Lima? Not since college. My mother moved to Cleveland to live with Frannie when I finished Yale. Why?"

Rachel pointed at the pictures of Sue Sylvester, some unknown Cheerios, and Mr. Schuester. "These."

"Oh. Did I explain how things worked for those photos?"

"You haven't explained anything about that," Rachel said.

"Sorry. The original shoot got me a few bucks. Paid some bills that month," Quinn said.

"So, not a lot."

"Pocket change," Quinn said. "If you get picked for the website, the members vote. For Cyber Girl of the month, and then year." she said. "The Year girl gets new photo shoots and more money. It's not Playmate money or status but it isn't bad."

"Sounds complicated," Rachel said, frowning.

Quinn shrugged. "The real money? Appearance fees, signings, and other things. The lucky girls get contracts and are scheduled for representing Playboy at events."

"Sounds like the old studio system," Rachel said.

"Kinda," Quinn said, nodding.

"So explain these," Rachel asked.

"Nostalgia," Quinn said. "There was a Glee Invitational the same week and city as Cheerleading Nationals. I was doing an event there also, so I checked them out."

Quinn found Rachel's reaction to her brief career as a Playboy model mildly amusing. She'd never really bought into the whole Playboy family culture. Some girls really thrived in that environment but she had plans for her life that didn't include being known as just another nude woman in the Playboy menagerie.

She suspected once the shock wore off, Rachel would return to her normal self, just like Puck had, though she'd had to resort to threats to keep him from bragging about her to his construction friends.

Sighing, Quinn got up to retrieved her scrapbook from that year from her closet. Maybe showing Rachel what that year had been like would snap her out of her shock.

"Please don't tell anyone," Quinn said, sitting down next to Rachel and putting the scrapbook on the coffee table. "Especially Kurt," she added.

"You have pictures!" Rachel said.

"Yup. Thought you'd like to see them."

"You're not going to go to any awards ceremonies with me, are you," Rachel said, watching Quinn open the scrapbook.

"Imagine the headlines. Rachel Berry escorted by former Playmate Lucy Cue," Quinn said, shaking her head. "What would that do to your reputation?"

"Umm…"

"Exactly," Quinn said.

Rachel wasn't sure what to think about this latest revelation about her roommate. She didn't have a problem with nudity, in pursuit of art anyway, and Playboy had a faint aura of respectability, but this was Quinn, one time poster child for white Christian moral values. She couldn't quite wrap her head around it.

"I'm still me," Quinn said.

"Yes, but..." Rachel shook her head. She looked back at the photo of Lucy Cue, lounging on a leather settee in all her naked glory, and then at a blushing Quinn. She'd never actually imagined Quinn naked, and now she was having a hard time not superimposing the image of naked Lucy Cue over her roommate across the room.

"Yes?"

"How do you go out in public after doing this?" Rachel waved at the photos of Lucy Cue.

"Clothes, makeup," Quinn said, winking at her. "People don't see me when they look at that." She pointed at the laptop screen. "They see Lucy."

"Do you want them to?" Rachel asked, puzzled.

"No," Quinn said after a minute. "Doing that killed my remaining exhibitionistic tendencies."

"So you wouldn't do it again, if they asked?" Rachel asked.

"Don't expect them to," Quinn said.

Quinn had done a lot of soul searching before optimistically submitting photos to Playboy. She'd made a little extra money modeling while doing her Undergrad and Masters but nudes? That was a huge leap for someone with her background. The Playmate test shoot callback had been a big shock.

"I had some sudden unexpected expenses that wiped out the money from my father," Quinn said. "I'd done some modeling, and Playboy was having a contest, so I sent in photos. That and other modeling jobs would have covered my expenses while I finished my thesis."

Rachel nodded, staring at her, like she was some exotic creature.

"I didn't win, but that got me in the door," Quinn said. "Did a couple shoots, but wasn't quite magazine material," Quinn said, shrugging. "Did get a Cyber Girl spot and all that happened. Which led to other jobs. Paid for my PhD."

"But it's you. Naked!" Rachel sputtered. "On the Internet!"

"Doesn't really look like me," Quinn said, weakly. "Much photoshopping. They lightened my hair, darkened my tan, and tweaked other things."

"Who knows about this?" Rachel asked. "That this is you?"

"Puck, Santana, Brittany, Frannie, and Shelby. And now you," Quinn said.


Note: This snippet implies that Quinn makes real money posing for Playboy. But this is a fictional story. According to my research (aka Google-Fu), in the real world only celebrities make good money appearing in Playboy. Official Playmates (however Playboy defines that) make slightly more than pocket change ($25K payed out over a multi-year contract apparently and a bit more for the top Playmate of the year) but Playboy pays very little for most photos they use.

Pardon me while I have a shallow moment...

Lalala... Playboy... Jenny McCarthy... Hmmm... Lalala... Charlize Theron as Quinn Fabray's aunt/sister/future Quinn?... Quinn Fabray... Playboy... Lalala


All better now...

Back to your regularly scheduled stuff.
