The Harmon Verse is a series of stories that are connected to the television series Glee, involving the character of Jack Harmon and those associated with him. The universe was created by SoullessWarlock on FanFiction.Net in the summer of 2010 and has grown to include numerous original characters from different fanfics and writers on the site.The series is mainly a a comedy, but often has some serious moments as well.The community can be found at this link: The HarmonVerse
Code Name: Jack has a tenedancy to give most of his friends and associates nicknames, but has given most of the OCs code names derived from the nursurey rhyme Tinker, Tailor and as an allusion to Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
Deadpan Snarker: Quite a few characters (Sue, Jack, Puck, pretty much everyone who's a snarker in Glee itself), but this is Daniel's defining character trait.
Depending on the Writer: In the hands of Soulless Warlock and Gone Rampant, the Harmon Verse takes on a more surreal and absurd turn while Cola-Flavoured-Sherbert and Zero Ben's interpretation of it are more realistic...Well, as realistic as a universe centered around Glee can be. The character portrayals are pretty consistent, however.
Destination Defenestration: Jack and Daniel have both been thrown out of and through windows - and this was before they even got to Sectionals.
Gender Bender: One for most of the Glee characters in an Alternate Universe chapter of Pack. Turns out to only be a semi-version, as Soulless Warlock said in a private message that characters like Burt and Carole are still the same.
Ridley's foster parents, Craig and Erica Robinson, are very happy together. It is also implied that Ridley's mother and stepfather, Elise and Byron, were happily married though their marriage imploded after Elise was arrested for art forgery.
Hero of Another Story: Jack, Mitchell, Dylan and Daniel to each other - while they all show up in See It My Way, A Different Point Of View, He's Alive/Through Our Eyes and Recap, they're all lesser characters in those works outside of their own.
Remember the New Guy: Averted and possibly subverted. Considering that the whole deal with the glee club is taking in talent, it allows for the new characters to jump into the story at any given interval.
Self-Deprecation: Most of the OC's have moments where they take shots at themselves, and the authors also do this in the notes.
World of Snark: It's Glee. Everyone's had a shot at it one time or another.

Jack Harmon (Created by Soulless Warlock)
The eponymous character in the universe and the protagonist of the See It My Way series, which covers the first three seasons of the show. He can best be described as Jesse St. James on steroids and wants nothing more than to become a star of stage and screen. He is talented, but arrogant as hell and is not afraid to tell the members of New Directions what he is thinking at all times.
Acquired Poison Immunity: Once stated that after all the chemicals he's been exposed to, Jack is incapable of either getting sick or being poisoned.
Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Jack has a tendency to become distracted by either the thoughts in his head or by whatever it is that is holding his interest, sometimes at the detriment of those around him.
Never My Fault: Played with as Jack will admit to situations being his fault to himself and Rachel, but will never admit to the situation to anyone else. It's part of his character arc for him to admit to such transgressions to his other friends.
Non-Idle Rich: Could become a star based on his family's bankbook alone, but chooses not to.
Really Gets Around: To the point that one of his goals is to kiss every member of the Glee Club before he graduates. Regardlessof gender. He's been with more people offscreen then Brittany and Santana combined.
Evil Matriarch: The fact that she's a highly-respected criminal notwithstanding, Elise has no problem using the people in her life (including her daughter) if the ends justify the means.
My Beloved Smother: She desperately wants Ridley to follow in her footsteps and become a thief worthy of the history books. She's also in complete denial over the fact that her daughter is trying to reform and become legitimate.
Mrs. Robinson: Ever since her first appearance, she unabashedly flirted with Jack and later slept with him during The Back-Up Plan.
