Hi, I've uh, seen some of your artwork around campus and I really like how you draw. Maybe you could show me some of your work and I could show you my new invention. It's still a work in progress, but it won't blow up in your face, I promise! -Tadashi
1. do not under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES tell him that the weird little dance he did before sailing a penalty over the crossbar v. Germany on July 2, 2016 is the reason his team failed to make it to the semifinals of the 2016 Euros.
NOW YOU NEED TO TELL US EVERYTHING ABOUT THE MUSICALL
Oh my gosh it was amazing?? Like I loved it soooooOO much. I’m trying to refrain from screaming but !!! The acting was great, the cast was so talented, and it was overall an amazing show. I’m just gonna list some things I LOVED
-Chris’s first line was “look I didn’t want to be a half blood” (my friend and I were screaming when he came on stage)
-Good kid live sounded so great. He climbed the set and scaffolding and I almost cried. I probably will cry.
-Mr. D was hilarious! George Salazar is such a talented actor
“Tartarus” “-Like the fish sauce?!”
My face easter egg was in one song when they were going through some of the quest moments their clue to leave the lotus casino was when a girl with a floppy hat and a braid came out and said “my brother and I just arrived here yesterday, may 1st…1939!”
Carrie Compere’s voice is so beautiful. She killed it. Sally, Silena, Charon, she was amazing.
-Sally in general! She kissed Percy’s forehead, sprayed febreeze whereever Gabe went, and was so caring and sweet
-Annabeth’s solo song was amazing and really in character! Grover’s was about Thalia and how he could have saved her (again, tears)
-The little percabeth moments sprinkled in! “You drool in your sleep”, “seaweed brain” “wise girl” they held hands for a couple seconds, and idk if it was just me but at one point they looked close enough to kiss
-we can’t have a scorpion on stage?? Why don’t we just fuckin stab Percy in the back
-CHIRON WAS JUST A GUY WITH A FRINGE TAIL WHO GALLOPPED EVERYWHERE IT WAS THE FUNNIEST THING
-Like everyone except Chris McCarrel and Kristin Stokes played multiple rolls and they were all so great at what they did
-At the end of the show I (and a bunch of others) got to meet some of the cast members! They signed things, took photos, and were so so nice (my current lockscreen is my photos with chris mccarrel, george salazar, and kristin stokes lmao)
I could say so much more but it’s like almost 1am and I’m delirious.
TLDR: The Lightning Thief was an incredibly amazing play with great talented actors and it was definitely worth it! I loved it so so much

said as an explanation, and they both knew how exceedingly unlikely that was
without Masaomi pointing it out, so Masaomi didn’t say anything at all.

couple hours on Masaomi’s couch while Masaomi worked on his laptop.
Masaomi said mildly, knowing how Youji felt about his brothers. “The evil one
or the dick?”

probably have to wait until he goes to sleep if we want to get really drunk.”
I see you’ve already mastered the finer nuances of good parenting,” Youji said
fondly. Masaomi decided he would let Youji continue to think he didn’t want
Seijuurou to see them drunk out of delicacy for role model purposes, and not at
all because he was sure Seijuurou would find a way to exploit that weakness to
his advantage. Youji leaned back on the couch, pinching the bridge of his nose,
as if he had a headache. “I do want to get drunk, which probably means
that I shouldn’t.”

was on the third slice of cake that Youji’s phone rings. “It’s Ryouta,” he
says, as an explanation for why he gets up to take the call. Masaomi tunes out
at that point, because he doesn’t feel the need to listen in on Youji’s
conversations with his son.
not until he hears Youji cry out, “Ryouta, stop. I can help you,
just tell me where you are. We’ll figure this out together. Ryouta!” sounding like a wounded
animal, that Masaomi whips his head up.
is looking at his phone and Masaomi’s heart stops for just a second—he has seen
that expression on Youji’s face before, and it’s not good.
happened?” he demands, already getting up. He’s not sure what he’s going to do,
but he thinks desperately that he has to stop Youji somehow (he’s not sure what
he’s stopping Youji from doing, but he’s ready to intervene, to do anything, to
make it all go away).
Youji says, his voice a strangled whisper. “Something—something must have
happened to Yukio. I have to—I have to go them.” He’s packing up his stuff and
looking wretched and lost.
we’ll go them,” Masaomi says calmly. “Where are they?”
don’t—I don’t know.” Youji stops and swallows and looks at him helplessly,
“Masaomi, I don’t know where my sons are.”
sounds close to breaking so Masaomi pulls at him, steering him towards the
laptop. “It’s OK, I can find them. Give me their cell phone numbers and tell me
can—you can track their numbers?”
can,” Masaomi says, allowing that this isn’t something just anyone can do.

heard Youji sound so helpless once before, and he hates it. His own
heart beats fast with the sense of urgency that he knows Youji must be feeling.
said—he said something bad might have happened. He meant Yukio.”
“Did he say that?”
but—that’s the only thing it could have been, to make him sound like that.
Something must have happened to Yukio, and I don’t—Ryouta sounded like he was going
to do something dangerous and what if—”

to be true. “Everything is going to be fine.”
both knew that sometimes things weren’t fine. Youji almost died after he lost
Hinami; Masaomi is positive he won’t make it if he loses those two kids.
Masaomi works faster and then curses when the results settle in a location.
Where are they?!”
Masaomi says, knowing what that means to Youji.
he must have—Seiji.”
Masaomi swallows, knowing that Youji had good reasons to hate his brothers, and
he’s feeling in the blanks about why his kids might have gone to Iwatobi. “You
never told your gay son about your homophobic sadistic brothers?” Masaomi asks
even as they’re already packing up and heading out the door.
didn’t think I had to!” Youji says, “I told Yukio not to go, he’s
never disobeyed before—Jesus Christ, if he’s done anything to hurt my kids I’m
going to kill him.”
The eldest brother, Masaomi thinks. The one Masaomi really should have
done something about, years ago. Except Youji hadn’t wanted that, not really.
And now they’re both regretting that inaction.
long does it take to get to Iwatobi?” Youji asks. “Do you have a jet?”
of course, but it’ll be faster to take a helicopter, we won’t have to worry as
much about landing—”
a helicopter be fast enough?”

OK,” Youji says, mostly to himself, as if trying to calm down.

momentarily forgotten he was around.
Ryouta in trouble?” Seijuurou asks.

anyway. At any rate, his presence would keep Youji from losing himself entirely,
so Masaomi just nods and they head out the door.
too much at stake at the moment—Youji is already too close to losing his mind
with worry, so there’s no point in adding to that. But a deeply unsettled
feeling spreads throughout Masaomi as he thinks about Iwatobi and how he
knows there’s other things in that small town that the Miracles might have to
for the first time, he starts to think maybe it wasn’t just a coincidence that
the secrets in Iwatobi happened to be in the same place as Youji’s home town.
