Summary: Tom tells the story of how you get on a talk show.
Graham leaned forward, “So, Thomas,”
Tom laughed immediately, “Oh dear, this is going to be a big one,” he turns to look at the audience, “he only calls me Thomas before the really big questions.”
Graham laughs and nods, “It’s true, very very true. Speaking of True, is it true that you stalked your fiance on set before you met? ”
Tom made a face, “It was just some casual stalking,” Graham and the audience start laughing,
“No, no, Let me explain myself, you see, as you all know (y / n) was the screenwriter of (Romantic Movie Title). We spent hours talking about the script, my character, emails, texts, phone calls. All of that. But never met in person. So, it’s the first week of shooting and I see this girl. This absolutely adorable girl talking to the director. I think, ‘Okay, go get introduced.’ I got grabbed by wardrobe because there was some last minute change and by the time I get back. She’s not there. We start the scene. I think that was when we filmed the wedding scene, and I look out and there she is again, this time over clearly whispering to someone from production, and forget my lines. Totally gone. ”
There is another round of laughter and Tom laughs as well, adjusting a little awkwardly in his seat.
“Yeah, so there I am, speechless,”
Graham laughs, “Was that a first?”
“It was new.” He joined in the laughter and continued. “I shake my head and apologize and get back to filming. When it was a break to change the setup, I just instantly start looking for her again, I need to know who this girl is. I was a man on a mission and I found out" he had a pause for effect, “nothing, she was gone. So I figure, okay she must be involved with the film somehow right? She was talking to some important people. She had to come back. So by this time I was texting (y / n) pretty often, sometimes about the movie and sometimes just to say hello, I call her to save time in texting, she picks up and I say, Oh my God (y / n), I think I fell in love with someone on set today. So, she starts grilling me, what did she look like, who is she? and I start describing this girl,“ anotjer pause "and I hear her laughing,in stereo, turn around and there she is… that adorable girl. So yeah, a little bit of stalking and I found my best friend.”
Voltron Keith and Shiro headcanon with a very sarcastic and spunky fem S/O pls
hell yeah i love these boys and the spunky, sarcastic s/o. enjoy!!
> At first it would be a bit hard for the red paladin to deal with because he’s quite the spunky, spunky teen himself.
> But, despite the sarcasm, he still finds himself easily joking around with her after a few minutes and he thinks it’s great they can get along after a while.
> He has long conversations with her that’s literally just a bunch of sarcastic banter and teasing towards each other. Some of the team think it’s entertaining to watch while others tell them to quite it and make out already.
> Such comments make both of them blush but she purposefully drags Keith away. They don’t really end up making out usually and only do it just to mess with the others.
> Keith knows his limits when it comes to the sarcasm. While both are incredibly determined and ready for any battle they both intensely support each other as well. Sometimes when they get back from battle, they’re abnormally quiet and lay in bed together under the covers.
> These moments are what Keith cherishes the most. It’s the time he can see the side of her she shows no one else. He gets to watch her be cute, sweet, and just as funny as ever. It makes his heart pound. It makes him love her so much more.
> Sometimes he’s a little awkward with affection because he wasn’t used to getting it throughout life but she’s slowly helping him through it. She acknowledges this and keeps the relationship slow despite their already immensely close relationship.
> LOVES the “Shut up!” “Make me!” argument because we all know it leads to making out in front of everyone.
> As the leader, he’d find trouble with this girl at first. She was so determined and courageous that he wasn’t sure if he was fit to be the leader with her attitude. However, she followed with ease and never really complained either.
> Her sarcastic comments catch him off guard a l l t h e t i m e
> He’ll give an order and she’ll make a witty comment right back which makes him stop and stare for a few minutes. He always gets this blank look on his face but ends up bubbling over with precious laughter in the end. It never fails to make him laugh either.
> She finds it adorable that he thinks her sarcasm is so funny but she notices he’s never used it himself. It leads to the horribly embarrassing confession for him actually not knowing how to use it properly.
> This began a series of lessons in Sarcasm 101 because this poor baby needs it.
> He catches on more quickly than she expects and it makes her proud. She knew he was such a leader type but she didn’t know he wasn’t sure on how to use sarcasm. Maybe because he felt the need to be serious all the time, he couldn’t be joking around.
> Shiro thanks her every time he uses it now and it’s adorable?? pls protect this boy
> When they’re alone he’ll ask how he did with sarcasm that day whether it was just lounging around the ship or in between battles, he genuinely wants to know. She gives him a good score every time and little tips as well. It makes them all bubbly and giggly and ends up in numerous loving kisses.
> He’s happy she’s his and his only because without her, he may have never learned he can be a serious leader as well as a goofy one. He’s thankful for her to help him realize that and shows his longtime gratitude in affection and presents.
Second of all- the *screaming*, you know, during Photograph, was LIKE 800 TIMES MORE INTENSE also THERE WAS NO LIGHTS, like PITCH BLACK for all of Lights Out and The Photograph and most of Bad Men
so a total blackout for most of side 3. which was. like. you know how when you’re driving and you r lost youthrn down the music or when you want to hear a really good part of a song u close your eyes? yeah that except instead of music you’re listening to a literal goddess scream at seven hundred fuckung decibels. no lights at all… except. Except. During The Photograph, which was already so much. more. oh my GOD she can SCREAM holyFUCK i literally ASCENDED.
during The Photograph theres one tiny light shining first just on Brittains face, then on Gelseys face. And it looks like they’re at the end of a tunnel like it looks like they’re either closer or further to u that you remembered and holy SHIT it was dramatic
At the end of Hero, between Hero and Midnight, Brittain was *sobbing* like straight up breaking down.
SOLDIER AND ROSE OH MY GOD. so Brittain was like being as flirty as a sophomore fuckboy. shaking her hips, raising her eyebrows, leaning in to Soldier, all that. and Gelsey was just. You know the “fwoosh” noise in soldier n rose that sounds like wind That’s not a synth noise. That’s Gelsey standing there with one of those things where you shake it and it makes a fwoosh sound. one of those Noisemaker Cans that you pick up at party supply stores
so B was like standing a foot from G, totally just like flirting it up, and G was just standing there, holding the Noisemaker Can, looking like completely apathetic. Like, “all my friends are dead” apathetic. Holding it up to the microphone, shaking it occasionally, and boredly glaring at everyone.
during Family Meeting, while Dave/Usher is like “yo Roxie how old are you?” while he’s doing that, Gelsey is bringing him a drink with her head down and. that really changed how I thought abt their family. like. poor Lady Usher honestly!
I Don’t Know was significantly faster. like 50 percent faster.
DHXBJSBXJBSC DAVE DEFINITELY HEARD OUR OUTCRY AND MEMES ABOUT BRENT’S MIC AND LIKE MADE A JOKE OUT OF IT EVERYONE ELSE WAS LIKE. FOUR TO SIX INCHES FROM THEIR MIC AT MOST TIMES. EXCEPT BRENT WAS LIKE KISSING HIS
Usher Part 1 was. legitimately scary and disturbing. gonna sound weird but lady usher gave me Old Prince Bolkonsky vibes but more sympathetic her face was. terrifying. like genuinely aaaaa.
they changed pearls death monologue to include a little more abt rose
oh yeah n also in uh Four Friends In a Room Drinking, Dave n Brent SHOUTED “pretty boys knee”
like Marya-During-ACTP level belt
“HEY THERE TUMBLRITES ITS THE GAY LINE”
during Camera Shop, Rose looked So Fucking Uncomfortable. nervously laughing, playing with her hair, adorable confused face. “whom is this lady and why is she offering me whiskey.”
y'all probably noticed this a while ago but the Camera Shop-Tango Dancer and Monk-Midnight connections were even more obvious in person
also during Four Friends every time (so three out of four) that G&B sang “pretty girls knee” they would give each other this intense stare and raise their eyebrows and smile knowingly and no I do not ship actors that’s gross but uh this was… an interesting touch
OH SHIT FATHERS AND SONS STAGING
someone HAS to get a boot of fathers n sons because IT WAS HILARIOUS but I can’t describe it well
i might have to draw a diagram but it was like so first, G&B take their mics off the mic stands. They walk over to D&B and hold them up to the guys faces while they sing.
Then, when Brent is singing “and if anyone pushes me I’m gonna push him back” and G&B are going “hmmmmmmhmmmm”, they share a mic and Dave holds Brent’s mic.
Then, when everyone sings “bum bum bum bum”, G shares a mic with D, and B shares a mic with uh. other B and G and B walk in circles around D and B like that overshared gif of h******n during cabinet battle 1
holy shit it’s hilarious
also this whole time dave n Brent r bashing the Fuck out of two bongo drums
i really hate to say this but. starchild was underwhelming. it sounded like. the cast album
oh,,, shit. subway. such a FUCKING banger.
the drums for Bad Men were painfully loud and gelsey delivered every line perfectly and brittain’s Fuck Monologue was AMAZING except I was with my overprotective somewhat conservative dad lmao : )
same goes for Roxie’s monologue in family meeting
four friends was just always a good song
ANY KIND OF DEAD PERSON WAS AN AMAZING SONG
did I mention that THE LIGHTS WERE TOTALLY DARK
did I mention that JESUS FUCK GELSEY BELL SCREAMING IS LIKE SO MUCH FUCKING LOUDER AND MORE OF AN EXPERIENCE CLOSE UP
since I’m bad at using my own words for shit: the entirety of The Photograph was grotesque and amazing
oh yeah,,, what’s an audio bootleg,,, totally not something I have,,, if you messaged me asking for an audio bootleg you would uh definitely not get anything in return
Lights Out was adorable
Hero made me CRY
Midnight made me have emotions
The Telescope was kinda average (never been my favorite song) but they did have different lights go on for every star
oh yeah I’m a fucking moron because I honest to got thought Brittain sang Tango Dancer .-.
the cast all went in through the same door as us aaaaa (in fact, @prettyboysknee held the door for Dave Malloy) except Brent entered through a Secret Basement Door apparently??? that Really boosts his cryptid status
the shirts are amazing
AT THE END OF TW&R AFTER THEY GIVE US THE INSTRUMENTS THEY JUST??? LEFT???
LIKE HERES AN ELECTROHARP AND A STRINGMAN AND A BANG-BANG DRUM NOW BYE HAVE FUN
WE KEPT THE TUNES GOING FOR LIKE TEN MINUTES
my nerd of a dad said to me during the Us Music “do you think they’d mind if I went up there and took some booze”
it was. so amazing
did I mention that it was gayer than it sounds on the album
did I mention that HOLY SHIT GELSEY BELL SCREAMING
it was all just so
if I did happen to have an audio boot, i would be glad to message it to anyone who wanted
however, I don’t have one
hey Dave if you’re reading this there’s no audio boot
tl;dr: gelsey bell is an ethereal being, brittain ashford is amazing and beautiful, dave malloy is a genius, and brent arnold is an incredibly talented cryptid
