Title: Beautiful Belligerence - Prologue
Fandom: Glee
Pairing: Brittany/Santana; Quinn/Rachel
Rating: M
Summary: They say that you can only hate someone if you once loved them, so when Brittany and Quinn start at an exclusive private boarding school, and Santana hates Brittany from the first moment, was it really love at first sight?
Chapter Summary: The last time the two had stood off like this, Quinn had been threatened with boarding school, and that was long before she had been arrested and escorted home by the LAPD. Brittany wondered for a brief moment if Quinn would get off with anything less than military school after her latest stunt.
A/N: This was inspired by a picture of Santana, Quinn and Brittany dressed in Harry Potter garb. This is not a fantasy story or have anything to do with magic, but it is very AU, there will be some Original characters and more likely than not there will most of the characters from the show, minus Schuster, cause he kind of annoys me. lol. Enjoy and review guys.




The air was dead silent and yet Brittany Pierce could almost cut the tension with a knife.

It was a familiar scene, her sister on one side of the room, her arms crossed across her chest, facing off with their father, he too with his arms crossed, but also with a vein pulsing across his temple, his face tomato red.

Even Quinn knew she had crossed the line this time around, and Brittany sensed her fear, having known every action and every expression her sister used to convey her emotions since she was seven. The way Quinn's jaw was set in anger, but her eyes showed a gloss that has nothing to do with anger showed Brittany that Quinn was worried, and the slightly elder blonde had every reason to be.

"Do you have anything to say for yourself?" Anthony Pierce asked his step-daughter, his teeth clenched and from her position on the couch next to her mother, Brittany could see him also biting his lip, something he did to stop his anger from boiling over.

Quinn stood in silence and looked down at the floor, dropping her arms to her side in defeat as she shook her head.

Brittany smiled in the direction of her sister, glad that she wasn't trying to back-chat their father this time, glad she was playing it safe.

"Do you remember what we said would happen if you did something like this again?" he asked, in what sounded like a calm voice, but was in reality his way of holding back the huge array of curses that threatened to burst forth from his mouth. "Do you remember where we said we would send you?"

Quinn nodded, looking up at her step-dad in fear. Brittany often wondered why her sister was so scared of their father, having been raised by him the same way Brittany had. It made her wonder, not often but at times like these, what is was that her real father did or said to her for her to be so frightened when their dad got angry.

Anthony Pierce was a man of his word, and when he had married Judy Fabray, he had promised her that she would raise her daughter the same way she was raising his own, and he had lived up to his word for almost ten years, and in all that time, he hadn't laid a hand on Quinn or Brittany, but still, Quinn was terrified of their father when he was angry, and it showed.

She nodded her response to Anthony quickly, returning her gaze to the floor after chancing a quick glance at Brittany, who smiled reassuringly.

"I'm sorry Quinn, but you will be leaving as soon as I can make the arrangements, you had better say goodbye to those delinquent friends of yours."

Quinn seemed to accept her fate without argument, so when there was an uproar, Brittany was shocked to find the shout emerge from her own throat.

"Britt-" her father started to say, but she stopped him, walking the distance across the room to her sister's side.

But Quinn was more than her sister, she was also her best friend, and she couldn't lose her to boarding school without a fight. "Dad, you can't send her to boarding school. I need her hear, she helps me through school, she is the only reason I am passing, she helps me study and she stops people from picking on me. I need her here, you can't send her away."

Her speech was heartfelt and she clutched to the arm of her sisters jacket, tugging the material hard.

"Britt, you don't need me. And I'll be okay, maybe I need it."

Brittany felt her eyes fill with tears at the prospect as the reality of the situation hit her. "No, you need to stay here," she said through her tears.

Quinn smiled at her and started to talk, but a thought came into Brittany's mind, and she felt that she had to shout it out before she forgot and so over the top of her sister's voice, Brittany practically screamed, "I'll go," looking over at her mother who was still sitting on the couch.

There was silence as thoughts ran through all of the room's occupant's minds, and Brittany could see her father's distaste at the idea, but she didn't give him the chance as she wrapped her arm around her sister's, looping them together tightly. "If she goes, I go," she said firmly, determination in her voice, and she could see resolve reflected back at her in her father's eyes.

But out of the corner of her eye, she saw her mother smile, and she knew that if Quinn did leave, she'd be right by her side.
