Someone on twitter tonight very kindly informed me that, waaaaay back once upon a time in 2011, @linmanuel posted his dream cast for a West Wing musical on his now-defunct blog. And since the internet never forgets, I share it with you all now.

I support everything about this casting (Patti LuPone as Marion Coatsworth-Hayes! Audra McDonald as Nancy McNally!) and wish to see it become reality as soon as humanly possible.

hey if i have to see this every time i think of the terrible trio then so do you

a war drapes itself over troy and you let hollow apologies drip off your eyelashes.
the first time i saw saw you, i screamed something about blood, 
and you laughed and laughed. 

i call you “love” like i don’t want to tear you apart piece by piece
and swallow them all.
i want to slit your fucking throat,
i want to bruise kisses onto your lips.

your mouth does something strange when you call it “duality”. 

i bend to a mass of swaying flowers and offer to braid them into you and
you settle in front of a tarnished silver mirror echoing back rotten things,
and my hands are careless weaving strands together,
tucking in dark, molten purple flowers and pulling too hard.
your eyes trace the way my fingers run over your hair, over the crumpling petals.

i mouth my predictions of the ruin you’ll bring on me into your skin,
and you laugh and laugh.
i want to strip you down to shapes and shadows, 
let me make you into just another fluid lined form twisting in the dark.

you touch me like a bruise, kiss me like teeth.

ruins and laughs // wto for @discardedtwigs

When Your Friends Know Shady People
  • Co-host: *knocks at door*
  • Cameraman: Ugh, yeah?
  • Co-host: Are you okay? You look like garbage.
  • Cameraman: I got really high and stumbled through the woods all night. What about you?
  • Co-host: ...I did something terrible. *trembles*
  • Cameraman: Yo, come in and relax a bit.
  • *in the living room*
  • Cameraman: Coffee?
  • Co-host: No.
  • Cameraman: Let me guess, you had a fight with her. *sips coffee*
  • Co-host: I killed her.
  • Cameraman: *spits out coffee* You what!?
  • Co-host: It wasn't her, though. It was her double. But, she acted just like her. She came over and we got into an argument. I got so upset and I lost my temper. I blacked out, and the next thing I remember is stabbing her again and again. I decapitated her, but she just kept growing back. *breaks down into tears*
  • Co-host: I thought it was her! I thought I was really killing her! I didn't even feel anything while I did it. If anything, it was like I was just letting off steam. Am I a bad person?
  • Cameraman: ...
  • Co-host: I need you to help me! She's still there. Tons of her. They just keep growing and I don't know what to do. *sobs*
  • Cameraman: I don't know what you think I can do about this.
  • Co-host: It looks like a living crime scene in my apartment! There's blood everywhere! Body parts are crawling around the place and more keep growing! It's a nightmare! You know people! You can fix this, right!?
  • Cameraman: Yeah, I "know people", but I don't think any of them want to deal with this Twilight Zone shit.
  • Co-host: Please, I don't know what to do. I don't want to go to jail... I don't want her finding out.
  • Cameraman: *sighs* Alright, I'll try to find someone who can do something about this. Just stay here and calm down in the meantime.
  • *later at the apartment complex*
  • Cleaner: *wearing a hazmat suit, breathing heavily* THIS IS PLACE?
  • Cameraman: Yeah, this is it. I don't know what it looks like inside. She told me some pretty crazy shit, though. I hope it's not too much.
  • Cleaner: *opens apartment door*
  • *blood spills out room*
  • Flesh Things: Helen. Why did you hurt me. I'm sorry. I love you. Mark? Help me. It hurts. Why? I'm so sorry. Forgive me. Wanna fuck? AAAUGH!
  • Cameraman: Jesus fuck! *runs off to vomit*
  • Cleaner: *tilts head* HMMM. IS NOTHING. SEEN WORSE. GIVE ME HOUR. YOUR APARTMENT SHALL BE MAXIMUM CLEAN. *slams door shut*
  • Cameraman: *listens to strange sounds coming from apartment for an hour*
  • Landlady: Excuse me.
  • Cameraman: Oh, hello.
  • Landlady: I got complaints of a junkie loitering around the hallway. What are you doing here?
  • Cameraman: Me? I'm just waiting for a friend.
  • Landlady: Are you friends with the strange girl who lives in this apartment?
  • Cameraman: Yeah.
  • Landlady: Good, tell her that all of her candles are stinking up the place. I'm very open about running cheap, terrible apartments. In fact, I'm proud of it. The walls here are paper thin, and the scent of lilac candles seep through everything. Tell her to knock it off or I'll evict her.
  • Cameraman: Uh, sure thing, ma'am.
  • Landlady: Now get the fuck out of my hallway before I call the police.
  • Cameraman: *leans on wall outside*
  • Cleaner: FRIEND! THERE YOU ARE! JOB IS DONE. APARTMENT IS CLEAN. MINOR DAMAGE TO FURNITURE. ALSO, MANY CANDLES BROKEN.
  • Cameraman: Alright! Cool, that's no problem, dude. *gets nervous* But, uhh, about your payment. I'm kind of broke now... so.
  • Cleaner: HAHAHAHA! *forcefully pats cameraman on back*
  • Cameraman: *goes flying into a garbage can*
  • Cleaner: PAYMENT IS NO PROBLEM. WE ARE *air quotes* COOL. WE ARE FRIENDS! YOU CONTINUE TO SUPPLY ME GOOD GANJA. *makes smoking gesture* HAHAHAHA!
  • Cameraman: Fuck! I can't stand up, dude! I think you broke my back, dude! FUCK!
  • Cleaner: YOU ARE FUNNY, STONER FRIEND. I SHALL BE SEEING YOU IN FUTURE. HOPEFULLY NO MURDER NEXT TIME. ПОКА, MY FRIEND!
  • Cleaner: *walks off*
  • Puppy: *growls and barks at cleaner*
  • Lady: Whoa, calm down there! *scoops puppy off the ground*
  • Lady: Sorry, my doggo usually doesn't get so upset with strangers.
  • Cleaner: *glares at puppy*
  • Puppy: *violently gnashes at cleaner*
  • Lady: Doggo, what's your issue?
  • Cleaner: I'M NO FAN OF DOG. KEEP DOG TO YOURSELF. PATHETIC CREATURE. JEALOUS CREATURE. SHEER EMBARRASSMENT.
  • Lady: Sorry, sorry! He's just a puppy!
  • Cleaner: IS NO PUPPY. SIMPLY A NEUTERED MONSTER. I SHALL BE TAKING MY LEAVE NOW. *gets into car with a mysterious woman and drives off*
  • Puppy: *growls*
  • Lady: Jesus, doggo. You're not acting like yourself. What's wrong?
  • Puppy: *wan* *wan*! *licks lady's face*
  • Lady: Hehe, that's more like it!
