1. Be More Chill
- Imagine “13” and “Little Shop of Horrors had a love-child. ‘Nuff said. Also, teen depression metaphors and a hype, funny soundtrack. (Lots of great audition songs)
2. Fortress of Solitude
- "Hairspray” and “Motown”’s love-child. But better. Lots of roles for POC. Lots of roles for teens.
Not super obscure, but really dark, twisted, and comedic. Definitely under-appreciated. There are lots of beautiful ballads here that I never see at auditions
A Pasek and Paul (team behind “Dear Evan Hansen). Emotional abuse themes. Basically a masterpiece.
5. A Man of No Importance
The only Ahrens and Flaherty that no one knows. So very Broadway, and one of their best. It’s about theatre and every-day struggles. It’s really lovely.
Just listen to "Fly Into the Future” and get back to me.
If you haven’t already heard of “The Sensitive Song”….I don’t know what you’ve been doing. Basically it’s the best guy audition song ever, especially if you’re going in for something not-so-kosher.
Hey I saw you mention Sense8,,, I know you like BMC,,, how about a,,, Sense8 BMC AU??
okay I’ve just haphazardly thrown this together as a tentative summary and I make no promises BUT I might be outlining this for a long fic?? anyway here ya go
jeremy heere is your average twenty-something new jersey citizen. he’s been ordinary his whole life–until he got a psychic link to seven other strangers, what the fuck. it’s not that bad once he gets used to it; it’s like having a new family inside his head. is it weird that he’s attracted to one of the strangers in his head though? IS IT WEIRD??
michael lives in the philippines, on the outskirts of manila. he’s an activist by day and a dj by night. it takes him a while to realize that he’s really gotten a psychic connection to other people and it has nothing to do with drugs.
christine is a rising star in china. her roots are in musical theatre but she made her debut on the big screen a little right before she found herself able to telepathically talk to seven other people. christine is absolutely delighted by this development and is super enthusiastic about having a bunch of new friends in her head.
jenna is a journalist from south africa and she is initially not thrilled about all these people in her head. she has confidential sources and if her cluster compromises any, she will end them. later, she becomes someone who’d end anybody who compromised her cluster.
chloe takes the longest to warm up to the whole cluster deal. chloe is a makeup artist working in hollywood, and she already has a full plate of crazy to deal with in her daily life. getting to know brooke kinda makes all the crazy worth it, though.
brooke is from europe (not sure where yet, though I was thinking maybe denmark?) and she’s an absolute sweetheart, so nobody suspects that she’s actually a hacker extraordinaire. also, she has a blue streak in her hair a la riley blue (thank you for suggesting brooke as the hacker and the blue streak @actualbird)
jake lives on the australian coast and adapts pretty well to having a whole new set of friends in his head. jake also happens to be the heir of a criminal syndicate. jake doesn’t really care about ruling a criminal empire; he just wants to go fly to argentina and meet rich in the flesh.
rich is just a guy trying to make ends meet in cordoba, argentina. he also happens to be a kickass martial artist. he’s never had anything that resembled a real family until seven strangers appeared in his head.
so these 8 kids get to slowly learn about each other and become a family and save each other’s asses! shenanigans happen!! there’s so much sexual tension and pining!! michael accidentally visits while jeremy’s in the shower and jeremy totally mentally walks in on michael jerking off. michael sees snow for the first time in new jersey and he’s completely dazzled, and jeremy’s so in love that there’s no coming back from it!!!
also uh there’s plot and angst and the squip is whispers (duh) but honestly we all know this ends with rich kicking so much ass and brooke hacking a government or two and michael and jeremy finally kissing for real!!
Is kuroo just bokuto's friend? Is he not part of the gambling thing?
I think I wrote about this in some headcanon post ages ago, but Kuroo’s dad works for Bokuto’s dad (he’s one of the bodyguards) but Kuroo personally doesn’t want to get involved in the gambling business in any way. He just wants to party with his friends, basically.
- Jared once bought heelies because as the school funnyman it’s practically his job- but then he rolled down a ramp and crashed into a fountain
- when Connor was alive he punched a kid who made fun of his black nail polish
-Evan has both a fidget cube and spinner, but uses the cube more often. Jared used to tease him for it but then he saw how much it helped Evan and let the boy be free
-Evan has actually been handling his anxiety a lot better since the whole Connor project incident, and it makes Heidi and Jared so happy because: you’re doing great sweetie look at you go
-it took Evan a really long time to tell Jared how he actually broke his arm and when he did it was very a random very fast word vomit while they were hiking.
-Evan falling out of the tree is now the one thing Jared will not make fun of
-Jared once tried to ask Evan out and ended up screaming “YOU WANNA GO” at him and Evan instantly thought Jared wanted to fight and was Afraid
-things were incredibly awkward with Zoe for a long time. Most of the time they accidentally met in the orchard and Evan would always, without fail, start apologizing. Zoe is so used to it that whenever she sees Evan she instantly says “it’s ok.”
-Heidi takes as many days off as she can but she’s still really busy, whenever she’s home she’s making all of Evan’s favorite foods and they chill out and watch cop shows
-Heidi usually asks how Evans day went and if he’s doing ok, and Evan makes sure she’s not over exhausting herself
-One time in the middle of Evan’s routinely “I’m sorry I fucked up so bad” speeches Zoe suddenly asked “so you wrote that letter?”
-Evan didn’t go to the orchard for a week after that he was so shook

-Jared is gonna make fun of Evan until he dies but if anyone else does Jared will personally show up to your room that night and end you
-Zoe actually helped to mend their very awkward relationship by making stupid jokes before Evan could open his mouth and after that they were able to just have a comfortable silence
-Jared is the living embodiment of “I made you a friendship bracelet” “lol that’s so stupid” “you don’t have to we-” “NO IM NEVER TAKING IT OFF”
-he may or may not have a few of Evans friendship bracelets around his ankle
-after middle school Jared actually got really afraid of being bullied, so when high school started he upped his teasing to the next tier
-Evan tries really hard to comfort Jared when he feels like shit- which is more often than you’d think- but it’s just so hard to tell when he is and he always throws it off with a dumb joke
-one time Jared teased Evan about the Connor project, and went too far, Evan didn’t speak to him for the rest of the day, Jared almost cried
- sometimes when he can tell Evan is having a rough day he invites him to places randomly- “hey so all my totally awesome friends bailed on me for the mall, and I figured you’d wanna go since you have no life or whatever”
- alternatively Evan sits by Jared and makes awkward small talk, and just gives the boy a chance to tell him what’s wrong. He’ll give him his cube if Jared seems especially anxious

-“wait Zoe you know that you don’t have to like forgive me and be friends with me right like that’s totally ok i know I screwed up so-” “I know, I also don’t have mourn Connor” “…so why are you at the orchard so much”
-she never explains this
-one time Jared jumped on Evans back and they both ended up in a river
-he knows Evan has the strength to hold him up and dammit he’s gonna prove it
-one of the things Evan doesn’t regret about the Connor project is his speech because he still gets messages of the video thanking him and telling him how helpful it was
-Evan really wants a hamster, like really fucking badly
-Jared constantly greets people with “sup I’m gay” or “sup Hereros”
-Jared also constantly points out hot guys in hopes that Evan will agree because he can’t tell if Evan really is bi or not he just gets bi vibes from him
-“hey can you help me find updog” “what is..updog…?”
- this happens with Bofa too
- Connor used to be the master of avoiding situations. If you tried to have a serious conversation with him he’d either distract you or you’d turn around and he’d just be gone.
- he also does this thing where he pulls his hoodie up and pulls the strings whenever he just can’t deal with how stupid this is
-Jared was the first to drive and oh god what a mistake that was, he’s terrible
-Zoe once laughed really hard and spat gum at a teacher by accident
-one time while hiking with Evan he reached over and ate a leaf and Evan can’t even look at him the same way- what is wrong with you, Jared
- operation ask Evan out part 2- Jared tried to let Evan come to him because who wouldn’t you know? Then Zoe explained that she solidified the relationship- so he took Evan to the park but ended up eating too many chili dogs and throwing up on the curve when he got nervous.

- Alana saw Zoe’s stars on her jean cuffs and got so happy “oh my god that’s such a great idea it looks so cute!” “Oh thank you it’s just-” “do you mind if I do it too?” “Not at all but why-” “do you have a marker?”
- Evan can’t tie his shoes
- Alana ends up uploading a bunch of videos of Zoe playing songs, and they get some good attention. Zoe was shocked but Alana just explained that it was inevitable
-Jared goes through everyone’s phones and changes people’s contact names to memes
- “Evan stop apologizing so much” “I’m sorry-” “Evan no. None of that. Please” “ok ok I’m sorr-” “EVAN”
- Evan and Alana hate litter. Like a lot. Jared will never understand it but whenever the two are out they’re just picking up all the litter they find and throw it out.
-Jared once made a joke “maybe you guys should just carry around bags to carry garbage in”
-After they started doing this Jared made another joke: “why don’t you two make a recycling project”
-after Alana and Evan become save the world co-presidents Jared learned he really needs to stop joking.
“No ID, neither federal nor from any school, no entry in our
databases, not with your finger prints and especially not under a
teenaged ‘Peter Campbell’, no contract for your phone number, no lawyer, no address, and no,” Officer Novak
looks at him for a moment, his gaze unreadable and yet not as harsh as
the way with which the other officers looked at him, “no emergency
Despite craving to sink into himself and just hug his
knees to his chest, finding that bit of comfort in the enemy’s territory, Dean puffs himself up and stares the officer dead in the eye. “What about it?”
“Yes. What about it indeed.” Officer Novak says and sits down on the sofa that is angled towards the one Dean sits on. For some reason, Officer Novak didn’t throw him in a holding cell or an interrogation room right away but shielded Dean and his flimsy clothing from the other officers, who just stared at him like a particularly interesting but also particularly repugnant insect, and led him into his own office and onto one of the two big leather couches. He also offered Dean water and cocoa and even some warm milk, but shut up with his offers when he received an indignant glare for the latter.
At least he wasn’t rough with Dean. When they were still in the car and on their way to the precinct, Dean offered for him to do whatever he wanted to with him in exchange for letting him go. But Officer Novak didn’t take him up on it, as much as he didn’t strike or threaten Dean for even suggesting such a thing. Wouldn’t have been the first time Dean would have gone through that; not the first time a cop got his hands on him and did whatever he wanted to. But the first time he actually made his way to the precinct instead of the backseat of the car.
And as the armada of young teen fans of Leafyishere get butthurt over an Idubbbz video they desperately try to “protect” Calvin by trying to trend #weloveyoucalvin and the older fans step back and think to themselves how did they get here? Calvin is a grown man and makes satire videos for a living by roasting people- he can take 1 video guys. Meanwhile I’m here like-
@straightallies it depends tbh. I have no real sympathy for cops or soldiers for having signed themselves up for bloody jobs and I don’t treat them with kid gloves just because they’re uncomfortable acknowledging the truth. Like if I’m trying to convince someone that I’m right then I will definitely try to approach them with kid gloves, or if we are having a real conversation about viewpoints I will not be mean without cause. But I have a family member who joined the armed forces and I don’t talk to her because of it, period, and she’s aware that that’s why. Like I’m not gonna pretend it’s cool just to not hurt her feelings. She’s not in it anymore but her wife is and I still don’t fuck with her for that reason largely- if we were already closer it would be one thing but I don’t chill with cops and soldiers. So I’m not going to be empathetic to them if they aren’t trying very hard to be empathetic and understand where I’m coming from too. I’m not going to be the only one sitting honestly at the table.
i love new jersey drivers because i got one person who shines their high beams at me to let me know a cop is chilling nearby while i’m speeding and i got another person who stops their car on the side of the highway and walks down the highway flailing their arms around in the middle of the night waiting for someone to hit them
