I think Quartie had the potential to be something really great. If the writers had given it a chance, it would have been something nice.
Quinn’s not perfect and she lashed out. Still not ableist. Unlike Sugar, who never apologized for repeatedly treating Artie like crap. Unlike Brittany, who didn’t apologize to Artie after cheating on him and even forgot they had ever dated.
I love this small moment in Big Brother, when Quinn and Artie are sitting next to each other and Quinn reaches over to put her hand on his shoulder and he grins at her. It shows how close they were and I can’t imagine a bond like that ever going away.
I love that Kevin shipped Quartie because it made sense for the characters, not just because he loves working with Dianna (though I’m sure that’s true too).
It’s pretty clear that Quinn and Artie do something for each other what no one else can do for them - they inspire each other to be better people.
Quinn and Artie look at each other differently than they look at anyone else.
How is it that in such an imperfect show, a perfect ship can exist?
It’s now canon that Quinn and Artie wouldn’t be where they are today without each other.
