  • Aylin writes in her "Theatricality" blog that "Being in the house without Charlie was a horrible feeling. I felt like a zombie... my body was still in the house, but my mind was somewhere else. Every time I passed the boys dorm, I expected to see Charlie there, but he wasn't. He kept me grounded. Without him in the house, I think everything just annoyed me. I loved everyone in the house but I was still trying to get over the fact that Charlie left."
  • Aylin wrote in her "Fearlessness" blog "Charlie and I decided to get back together because we really couldn't deny our feelings for each other. I thought that being friends with him would be easy but it wasn’t. We just really like each other’s company and it made sense for us to be together. I think we help each other a lot" and "It was hard seeing Charlie in the bottom with me...I thought that Charlie did great this week and that he shouldn't have been in the bottom. The first thing that went through my mind when I found out that Charlie and I were in the bottom three together was, "WHY?!" It sucked! I didn't want to be in the bottom three with Charlie! On the inside I wanted to cry, but on the outside I was trying so hard to pretend like it didn't bother me. No matter how much I like Charlie (which is a lot) I needed to try and remember why I came to this competition in the first place and give this Last Chance Performance everything I've got. I expected Charlie to do the same. I was just praying that neither one of us would go home...But in the end, Charlie was not called back and saying goodbye to him was the hardest thing I've had to do in this competition yet. I was a mess! I didn't even know how I was going to continue on in the competition without Charlie. He was my support and the one person I fully trusted and could talk to about anything... and then he had to go. =( It was a really sad day for me and I knew I was going to miss him so much going forward. He helped me so much with everything, but I guess it was time to learn to be on my own. I will be thinking about Charlie every step of the way. He made me promise him that I wouldn't come home, so I am going to do my best to stay in this competition!"
  • In Aylin's backstory video, there's a shot of her and Charlie dancing in the kitchen together.
  • Aylin wrote in her Glee-ality (Season 2) blog "Of course, I was VERY happy to see Charlie!! I missed him a lot and it was getting even harder to get through the competition without him" and "It was amazing having all of my friends there watching [me do the LCP], especially Charlie. His support has meant so much to me during the competition and I felt like I was on cloud nine knowing that he was there watching me do what I do best!"
  • Aylin tweeted "@Charlie_Lubeck you will always be amazing to me. Thank you =)"
  • Charlie tweeted " Seeing @AylinSings again wasmMagical and frothy like a frappuccino made by the Keebler elves." and Aylin tweeted back "u r amazing!"
  • In an interview with TvLine about fans thinking her relationship with Charlie was fake and just for the cameras, Aylin said "Being in the house without outside communication, and only being able to talk to each other, that was the spark to the whole thing. But it turned into something totally real. I mean, when Charlie left the show, I got really, really upset. And we still care about each other a lot. I mean he’s totally at my apartment right now, chilling with Lily in the other room. So, it definitely wasn’t fake. I know some viewers said I wasn’t into it, or I was just playing it up for the cameras, but that’s absolutely not true. I was in a different mindset in the beginning of the show, and very focused on winning and being on Glee, but then I just let myself feel this way with Charlie, and it turned out to be something great."

She is sexy, she's got swagger for days. Talent is attractive to me.

—Charlie about Aylin, Dance-ability (Season 2)

You've got to make me a promise, though. Don't miss me if I'm gone, OK?

—Charlie to Aylin, Fearlessness

There are no words that tell you how happy you make me. Like stupid happy. Like that first bite of brownie mix from the other day happy. I don't know why we stumble and weave through this tangled universe the way that we do. Or why I'm always looking for that silver lining, like a sunny idiot surrounded by rain clouds. Or why on earth you'd be attracted to that. But what I do know is that something about you that always seems to push the clouds away, and make the day a little less disastrous. I know that plenty of people would say it was impossible to have what we have here, but I know it was impossible for it to happen anywhere else. As it was then, so it is now. You will always be amazing to me. Love, Charlie
