- Brittana - is a femslash ship between Brittany Pierce and Santana Lopez.
They have had a sexual relationship and also an intimate friendship. They were in the Celibacy Club, Cheerios, and Glee Club together. During the school day, they are constantly together and they sit together during Glee Club meetings. They frequently held hands and linked pinkies all through season one. While Brittany often makes unintelligent and nonsensical remarks, Santana rarely comments negatively but frequently gives her questioning looks, laughs or defends her from any harsh comment made directly at her. In one instance, Santana helps Brittany when she doesn't know her right from her left. In another, Santana says "leave Brittany alone" when Kurt tries to blame Brittany when Mr. Schue says no to performing a number by Britney Spears. While Santana is often tough in her relationships with other people, she shows a softer side to her personality when she is with Brittany. The two are often seen intimately cuddling, holding hands and walking with their pinkies locked. The pinkies locked thing seems to be their handshake. Also, they are often seen wearing matching bracelets and backpacks.
When Brittany finally confronts Santana about their relationship, they end up confessing their love to one another, but don't end up dating because Brittany stated that it would be wrong to break up with Artie because she loves him too and because Santana is too afraid to be an out lesbian because of her reputation. Brittany eventually breaks up with Artie. When they began dating, they kept it as a secret due to Santana's fear of what others would think. They officially called it a relationship in the episode Pot o' Gold, when Santana hesitantly inquired if they were dating. Brittany responded with statements implying she was under the assumption they had been dating for a while. As of The Break-Up, they are on an official break in their relationship, because Santana doesn't want the pressures of a long distance relationship. Santana assures Brittany that it's not a break-up, although Brittany says it feels like one. In Diva, Brittany pushes Santana to follow her dreams and move to New York and calls her "her best friend".
