A/N: Written for my LJ-mood-ficlet-a-thon: grateful. Title from The Avett Brothers

Everyone thinks Puck is the luckiest guy ever, getting regular threesomes with two of the hottest girls in school. He puts up with it ’cause it’s good for his rep and they buy him dinner at Breadstix all the time. (And Santana’s kind of maybe his best friend, but he’d never admit that to anyone—having a chick for a best friend is not good for his rep.)

What really happens, though, is that at specified times he turns off his phone and stays off his computer and then later brags about the hot sex he had. At parties, when the girls get too drunk to remember that this is Lima, Ohio and queers aren’t just like accepted, he sits between them and strokes their backs while they make out over his lap. (Sure, occasionally he goes for the grope, but mostly he just makes it look like he’s involved.)

Brittany doesn’t really get what he’s doing, isn’t quite sure why he has to be involved in her and Santana’s relationship, but Santana almost tells him she loves him. Because she does, really, for doing it, for accepting her, them, without a thought. She knows he’s a dick, really, but he’s also kind of the greatest guy she’s ever met.

Somehow, that makes perfect sense.

People never give Puck enough credit.

I like this... it makes a lot of sense, and it fits, you know?

Thank you! I'm glad you like it and think it fits. I certainly think it does. We don't see enough of Puck not being the horndog, but I think he's actually a great guy. He's just a high school boy and all high school boys do dumb shit sometimes.
