I can’t control my destiny. I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be. There’s only now, there’s only here. Give in to love, or live in fear. No other path. No other way. No day but today.

  • friend (excitedly): what's your favorite Christmas Eve movie?
  • me: Rent
  • friend: haha that's odd why?
  • me: *starts tuning a guitar*
  • friend: wait no
  • me: dECEMBER 24TH 9PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME FROM HERE ON IN I SHOOT WITHOUT A SCRIPT
  • friend: not again

okay but FOX can do silly, lowkey meaningless musicals (grease), but i don’t trust them to handle real themes of suffering and triumph. i won’t let a bunch of slightly racist, hardcore right-wing republicans tell the story of Angel Dumott, a gender-fluid person who DIED of AIDS because they were LBGT+. or the story of Joanne Jefferson, the successful and thriving Harvard lawyer lesbian. or mimi marquez! the POC stripper who isn’t looking for money, but love and a family. or Maureen Johnson, a feminist and human rights activist who ALSO HAPPENS TO BE BI. the only thing i can trust them to do is whitewash the cast, tbh.

Rent quizzes are all like

what is your favorite past time??

  • filming stuff

  • stripping

  • playing musetta’s waltz on your guitar

  • being a lawyer and helping people get hired by buzzline

  • wearing leather pants, flirting with people, and mooing

  • dressing up in christmas drag
  • getting mugged in an alley way and being taken in by a drag queen
  • collecting rent from poor people who used to be your friends

Do not cross her. She’ll kick your ass and sue you for wasting her time afterwards. And win.

timidlittledreamer  asked:

Hi! could you draw Maureen and Joanne from the musical "RENT" with pose 1C, please?!! :D

RENT: Maureen/Joanne (1C) 

“Measure your life in love.”

Normally I wouldn’t have done this one twice since I already did one in this post but… but I couldn’t NOT. Because Maureen and Joanne!?! This is the best. Thank you for requesting these two.
