I am haunted by the fact that some of my favorite musicals will never see Broadway stage but for some reason we felt the need to give Cats and Spongebob a stage this year. What right do they have over Hunchback of Notre Dame? Or Dogfight? What about Daddy Long Legs? FREAKING HEATHERS? How about the fact that Deaf West Spring Awakening got two months while Chicago is still running after twenty plus years? *eye twitches*
There once was a man who had lived through the ages. He had been a builder, an artisan, a healer, a priest, a prophet, a warrior, and a sorcerer. At times he had been a slave. At others he was a tyrant. Magic fell and technology reigned, and then magic rose again, and still he persevered, ancient like the sand itself, driven through the years by his obsession for a perfect world.
ok this came to me when i was rereading the part where Neil draws fox pawx on his notes and also because im a self indulgent loser who actally studies architecture so hear me out
Neil always draws stuff randomly and he just does it for the heck of it
but then Nicky sees his notebook full of sketches of the foxes
dan and matt laughing
renee and allison sitting by the bleachers
then nicky sees a sketch of himself with a bunch of magazines around him
he wasn’t crying shut up
kevin in gear
kevin in his bed reading history books
and a lot more kevin
but then andrew
andrew’s were just so detailed and there were doens of them and
nicky has to share this
so word got around that Neil is actually amazing and Nicky has pictures as proof
afterwards Renee and Allison came p to him to talk about the palmetto Architecture and Design Program
Neil was hesitant at first but decided to try and make a portfolio
his portfolio consisted of sketches of people when wymack fond out that Neil submitted a portrait of him he did not smile at all and some artworks of Wymacks apartment, abby’s office, the court you fucking junkie then some floor plans that he came up himself
due to being on the run for most of his life, he’s been to dozens of houses and apartments and condos and practically anything a person can live in so his designs were spot on
there were enough windows and they were all properly placed
the doors were as well
the dimensions of the rooms were the standard sizes
he just tried to remember all the houses he’s been to without trying to remember his mom
safety precautions were all considered because thats what his mom always checks first before moving in
and basically he’s just got it all down
and when the university staff heard of it they were ecstatic because there havent been any athletes who took up Architecture (its very time consuming and so fucking exhausting trust me) so Neil would be like a trial
but he wasn’t failing
he was actually at the top of his class ??
Kevin helps him with History of architecture and quizes him during night practices (one mistake = an hour extended practice)
Nicky helps him with the finance side of things, the cost of the materials and whats trending and whats not
Matt is basically just someone he can rant to whenever he’s feellng too stressed and matt lets him vent out bec he’s such a nice guy and an awesome friend
Renee gives him tps on how to talk with his professors in order to understand what needs to be done and just helps him with taking to people tbh bec Neil doesnt talk to anyone who wasnt a fox
Allison was the voice of honest opinions and he’d show her his work for her to critic on (why the fuck did you think that putting a leather couch in a walk in closet was a fucking good idea?)
and andrew just helps him remember all the laws and provisions in designing structures and also stays up wth neil when he needs to finish a plate or project thats due the next day
and the exy world heard of this they were all impressed
how could he manage?!
some exy players could barely handle simple courses..
and he took up Architecture?!?!
and basically everyone just stares at Neil in awe when Neil graduated with honors while at the same time being the captain of the Foxes
in the crowd you can hear Nicky’s shameless cheers and Dan and Matt’s proud tears for their son
