i can't believe i found them

THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE RACIST SHITBAGS WHO DID OBJECTIVELY GOOD THINGS FOR THE UNITED STATES. DO NOT ROMANTICIZE THEM BECAUSE OF THIS MUSICAL. DAVEED DIGGS IS HOT AND WOKE BUT THE REAL THOMAS JEFFERSON WAS NOT. SEPARATE THE CHARACTER FROM THE REAL PERSON. DO NOT DEFEND THE REAL FOUNDING FATHERS’S ACTIONS BECAUSE YOU LIKE THIS MUSICAL. SLAVEOWNERS ARE NOT CINNAMON ROLLS.

andrew goes on to play exy professionally because it’s all he knows. it’s a borrowed obsession and he knows neil will play pro until he physically can’t anymore. so he joins a professional team, and he keeps playing. for years. until eventually he figures out what he wants to do with his life

he wants to work with kids. he wants to help vulnerable kids because no one ever helped him. so he retires and he becomes a social worker and for probably the first time in his life he has a passion. something he loves doing, that makes him feel good. something that makes him feel like he has a place in the world

something to live for

He wished Chaol were with him. Wished for time to just… stop so he might sort out all these fractured pieces of himself, put them into some kind of order, if not back together entirely.

My mom was sitting next to me this morning, on this day November 19, the year of our Lord 2016, when she found out about Hamilton.

And freaked out.

The FOUNDING FATHERS WERE WHITE, BLACK PEOPLE SHOULDN’T PLAY THEM, THIS IS SO INACCURATE TO OUR NATION’S HISTORY -

and so I sighed. “Oh?” I said, “and what role would they play, then?”

They SHOULD PLAY ROLES LIKE HARRIET TUBMAN, MARTIN LUTHER KING -

“In a period piece?” I asked. “What roles did black people play during that time period?”

They WEREN’T ALL SLAVES. I’M NOT SAYING SLAVERY WAS OK, IT WAS TERRIBLE AND SHOULD NEVER BE REPEATED -

“So if it should never be repeated,” I said less-than-calmly, “then we shouldn’t repeat it. Not even in our plays.”

-silence-

Every time I watch any philinda scenes I just start smiling so much thinking that Phil actually found the courage to lean in and kiss her. I’m so happy for them, especially thinking about their future once they work through everything. Those two as a couple are going to be something beautiful.

And then Sonic paid Saitama and Genos a visit. He told them about what happened that evening, but he quickly found himself dumbfounded when Saitama told him that “they could always hand him a copy of the key.” Sonic instantly refused, muttering something about “keeping the original” and “taking proper care of it from now on.”

Today (March 17, 2017) marks exactly one year since I came across the beautiful web series Twelfth Grade or Whatever.

After reading about 12gw on a LGBTQ media list, I immediately opened a tab for Youtube. LGBTQ Twelfth Night? So up my alley, it had a parking space.

That night, I watched every released video straight through. What I found was a clever, impactful adaptation that was more than I could ever have dreamed.

Taking the journey with the characters across the following months, finishing their story alongside them, meant so much to me.

Beyond this wonderful show, I was introduced to a supportive, friendly community of people who love literature and adaptations as much as I do. It has led me to other, equally amazing web series.

12gw has given me so much, had such an impact on my life, and I am so, so grateful that it exists.

I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT WHAT I FOUND IN THE THRIFT STORE TODAY.

You don’t understand I’ve been drooling on these covers since seven years ago especially McCoy, when I first fell into Trekkie mode with the TOS films. I literally shrieked in the store.
