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
Gone Rampant (Retired from the Harmonverse in May 2013 due to a growing hatred of Glee cumulating in Shooting Star, an episode which featured a gun going off in school less then four months after the Sandy Hook Shootings).
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.
Development Hell: A lesser example then other products. It's very rare that any of the main fanfics are updated either frequently or will set update schedules be kept to. As a way to pass time between updates, the main writers put up Spin Offs to pass time between updates (PACK for Soulless Warlock, Red Vs Glee PSAs for Cola Flavoured Sherbet and Gone Rampant, and the works of the Different-Verse for Zero Ben. Frequently lampshaded by the authors when they do update.
Fan Nickname: The actual title should be the Different-Verse because it was Zero Ben's kindness that allowed for Jack (and other characters) to continue on in different stories by other writers, but this title is what stuck for a few writers. This was actually a second attempt after a failed one by Soulless Warlock and two other writers and it has proven more successful.
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.
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.
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.
Badass In A Nicesuit: When he wants to, like in "Wheels" and "Ballad" when his coat is being repaired following events in Mash-Up.
Brick Joke: Makes one at the start of The Rhodes Not Taken where he bets five dollars in his head that someone will think Quinn is lactose intolerant. When Kurt makes this assumption later, Daniel pulls five dollars out of his pocket and puts it in his wallet.
Cannot Spit It Out: He'd probably be a lot more successful if he could just admit to Rachel that he'd like to go out with her.
The Scrappy: In-Universe is hated and/or not trusted by most of the Glee Club that he interacts with. You can actually count the number of people he's spoken too that haven't done something to him or ignored him getting the crap beat out of him with less then two hands. It's fully intentional by Gone Rampant, who stated that he was trying to avoid creating a Marty Stu.
Screw This, I'm Outta Here: Rampant pulled this in May 2013 after Shooting Star aired- he felt is was Too Soon after the Sandy Hook shootings and bailed out from Glee in its entirety.
