i miss you on that field tho

Charlotte: A Character Study

Anyways…can I just say that I really love and admire Charlotte as a character????

Like, she was a jewish, gay, black woman who—given that Falsettos is set in the late 1900s—undoubtedly was met with harsh discrimination and unnecessary obstacles due to her identity, but she was so passionate about her work that she still became a doctor and stayed true to herself by not hiding anything and being so genuine in the fact that she was openly jewish and living with her girlfriend. And like, I get and love that her character was a metaphor for the lesbian allies of the beginning of the AIDS crisis, but she was also shown as a woman who deeply cared for her work and her friends and to minimize her as simply a plot device is really gross. And like, Charlotte even had some flaws that I wish could have been better explored (ie: as implied in “A Day in Falsettoland”, she was easily dismissive of Cordelia’s complaint of restlessness in her domestic role, which—while also serves as a further critique on the confining roles of domesticity that evolve beyond heterosexual couples and even affect healthy gay relationships—shows that she can be just as self-absorbed as the other characters), and her relationship with Cordelia was easily the healthiest one of the whole musical (at least consistently).

She was Whizzer’s doctor and friend, and she had to watch him wither and die while everyone else in the world pretended that it wasn’t happening. “Something Bad is Happening” is such a chilling song because 1) Tracie Thoms’ amazing voice and her vocal range is WILD, 2) it’s an honest depiction of what was happening in society at the time, and 3) it explores Charlotte’s desperation and despair over her career. As shown in “A Day In Falsettoland,” she is very happy with her life and career, and she feels powerful in the fact that she helps so many people. But then we flash forward to “Something Bad is Happening” and even “Jason’s Bar Mitzvah” where she, Cordelia, and Trina sing that “I feel more helpless than I have in years.” This is especially chilling for Charlotte given that she has been portrayed as such a pillar of strength and happiness.

She is shown to be very devoted to the medical profession but you can’t help but wonder just how much the AIDS epidemic, watching her friends die and suffer, and silence from the medical field and even her own community had left her jaded.

Like… I love her. P l e a s e, more recognition and love for Charlotte.

okay but hear me out

awkward helldad AU

  • Hades entering Nico’s boyfriends’ dreams going “Who Nico goes out with is 100% his business but if I ever hear about you hurting him I will personally reserve a spot for you in the Fields of Punishment”
  • Hades sending Jules-Albert to the surface to pick Nico up when Nico missed curfew for a date (much to Nico’s embarrassment)
  • Hades spending his free time reading up on Mythomagic in an attempt to reconnect with Nico and sending him cards and figures even tho he doesn’t play anymore
  • Hades pointing out cute boys to Nico on camp with Nico dying inside
  • Hazel complaining to Nico about the dad-talk dreams Frank’s been getting almost every night for the past month and Nico going “yea tell me about it”

September's Not So Far Away
The Field Mice
September's Not So Far Away

I will, I’ll always remember
The days, the nights we spent together
The happiness of being with you
The sorrow of parting from you

More than a hundred miles away
You live, tho sure I love you always
Seeing you again was heaven
Now you’re gone again and it’s hell

September’s not
September’s not so far away
September’s not
September’s not so far away

I will never again ask you
If there, if there is any chance
I understand you wanted to be
Wanted to be closer, live free

I hope every call is from you
I’m not convinced I should not love you
I am really missing you so
Wanting to be kissing you so

September’s not
September’s not so far away
September’s not
September’s not so far away

September’s not
September’s not so far away

This cheered me up like nothing else today. These Field Mice songs are like companions and it’s been lasting for 20 years now.

OMFG MEL ARE WE ANY MORE PERFECT FOR ONE ANOTHER? I am a HUGE baseball fan! I’m all about the Nationals (I’ve been to 19 games this season����) but grew up a twins fan!

I really need to get out to a game before the end of the year I’ve missed my ballpark.. (the Nationals ballpark looks a lot like Target Field??? i approve :D)

HONESTLY THO KERI!! i mean… listen, next you’re gonna tell me that you’re a fan of wrestling and i’m gonna have to propose marriage lol

Oh, kudos to you for a brilliant idea to play both G/G's & T/S's FD simultaneously!. I think both teams are equally great. BTW, I miss your ideas for Meryl's wedding dress.

Thanks, but it was nbd.  It is kind of fun to watch tho. Yes, both teams are strong. I feel as if I am being presented with a buffet table of fine foods and wines when i watch them skate simultaneously.  

There are other good contenders in the field and we have yet to see the Shibs, C/B, and Anna & Luca skate.  I have a feeling it is going to be a blood bath out there. 

 I’ve got my eye on a couple of underdogs hoping that they finish in the top 10.

I just love this quad.

oopsy, forgot to address Meryl’s wedding dress ideas.  I tag them under wedding.  Any Meryl wedding ideas will have the tag wedding.  And thank you. I enjoy seeing her likes and can only imagine how wonderful her wedding will be.

well they have a long weekend off in October right around clarkes bday & it’s like long enough lexa doesn’t wanna stay at school & she could visit anya but anya has WICKED midterms & she doesn’t wanna fly home bc she’d just be jetlagged the entire time & then fly back & be jetlagged again so clarke is like well,,,,,,,, u can come stay w me for the break? if u want? my parents are doing smth for my bday too before my Party party so it could be fun so lexa is like yes sure that does sound lovely

she’s nervous to meet them but she’s sure they are good ppl bc clarke talks abt them so fondly & also,,, they raised clarke, who in lexas opinion is the Best Person, so she’s rly mostly nervous bc she rly wants them to like her & she is worried abt missing an important social cue or smth

clarke is rly rly laid back around them tho they get home after school on a Friday & lexa has this little weekend duffel & Jake immediately is like lemme get that for u kiddo & clarke is LUGGING a suitcase upstairs even tho like,,, she has a Bunch of clothes there but whatever lol anyway so she’s like what am I dad trash?? he’s like no lexa is a guest & also she apparently plays field hockey & quite well from clarkes Raving abt it I might add & clarke u know I love you & support however healthy form ur body takes shape but u could prolly use the exercise & she’s like oh god fuck urself but she’s laughing & lexa would Never talk to her parents like that but it seems rly normal for Jake & clarke so she’s happy.

also Jake doesn’t even bother to put lexas bag in a guest room he just puts it in clarkes & is like open door policy & then leaves & lexa is like I don’t know what that means & clarke is like don’t worry abt it jfc dAD

anyway after they get settled they go outside bc it’s chilly but nice & Jake is barbecuing & he just chats w them abt school he makes sure to ask lexa questions that pertain only to her bc she’s Quiet & clarke just keeps talking but when he asks lexa questions she’s considerate & rly smart & often quite funny & eventually they get to talking abt math & clarke is like 🙄🙄🙄 for the first time in my life I would rather set the table than just sit here

Abby gets home for a late dinner & she & lexa get on Rly well Abby is Wonderful & like Jake LOVES lexa he thinks she’s so good for his bb but he’s like clarke in so many ways he’s so happy all the time & funny sometimes lexa gets tired lol but Abby is more serious & lexa sees so much of her in clarke as well but yah the first night Jake is like ok dinner is ready hi abs my love save any lives today? I will get wine what are u feeling & lexas like oH! wAIT! & clarke just sits at the table laughing a little as lexa BOUNDS up the stairs & then scrambles back down w a bottle of wine & like she’s deadass 14 she’s like just so u know I did not buy or steal this, my older sister bought it, but not in this country so u need not worry abt fake IDs. & it’s like a RIDICULOUSLY expensive Bordeaux from France that anya had grabbed over the summer & given to lexa bc she didn’t rly like it lol & Abby & Jake are like 😳 this is quite the gift thank u lexa how much are u worth again? & she’s like well when I began at polis two months & five days ago, $212 million, but I have invested well in some stocks since then so I expect higher. my sister, anya, is 17 & she has more than doubled her net worth, & she doesn’t particularly like math

they are like oKAY THEN we will More than enjoy this wine thank yOU & they have a nice family dinner clarke is Thrilled like all her fav ppl together her dad lets them all serve themselves instead of plating bc he knows that lexa is incredibly particular & that way it’s not awkward or anything

& the next morning lexa is up Way early bc her sleep schedule is always a lil fucked up sleep is v hard for her & Abby is like oh hello lexa would you like to run & get breakfast w me for everyone & so they do & they talk abt just things they both find interesting it’s v cute Abby is like how did you sleep lexas like well for the time my brain quieted down so wonderfully, clarkes mattress is so soft, as is clarke & Abby just smiles like clarke isn’t ‘out’ yet she officially comes out abt a month later at thanksgiving lmao clarke but like. they Know & honestly like lexa is lovely but even if clarke didn’t like any girls they are still v hap & supportive & kind. like lexa tells Abby & Jake she’s gay at breakfast just offhandedly mentions it & theyre like ok cool & that’s that.

& the weekend is just rly nice clarkes gma (abbys mom) comes over for a lil bday lunch for her since her big party isn’t on her actual bday & they like to do a family thing anyway & lexa gives clarke a GAY present she bought her a star it’s so cute & she named it idk smth so gay but lowkey weird like ‘creek’ in Iranian bc that’s where she first took clarke when they met & everyone is just like Wow that was gay but clarke is just thrilled it’s cute

& then lexa naps a lot on Sunday & Jake is watching football when she wakes up & lexa Hates football but she goes to watch w him & recites that stats of ea play before the play she thinks they’re going to run & she’s right like 85% of the time he’s like how do you Do that she’s like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ i only like sports other than hockey bc of the math. also I’m autistic & then she leaves the room & he just Smiles & clarke wanders in a few minutes later w some popcorn & two beers & he’s like no clarke u cannot have that thank u for mine tho & she plops down next to him & they watch a bit & he’s like I think lexa is a genius & clarke is like she is dad like actually her IQ & he’s like I Knew it & they share popcorn & trash talk at the TV & lexa naps bc that’s boring to her & she loves napping

it’s a wonderful weekend honestly Jake & Abby are always rly happy when lexa stays w them she’s lovely to clarke like gentle & patient & always calls clarke out on her shit & stands up for herself too they love when lexa gets this defiant lil tilt to her chin bc she’s shorter than clarke for the first two years they know her it’s so cute but then she GREW like Rly fast & she’s taller all of a sudden but she still juts her chin & they can tell it just drives clarke Nuts

And then there’s that one episode of Black Mirror - San Junipero (totally unlinked to other episodes so it can be watched individually)

This is all I can think of now, and I probably missed some shows that I don’t watch. If you need a rec of completed shows with non-straight characters I can make that one too 👌
