A Kind of Magic (1986)

the high school theater au: the first two years
  • root’s that melodramatic punk who’s been putting on backyard plays since she was knee-high to a grasshopper
  • probably popped out the womb doing fingerguns and reciting shakespearean sonnets
  • she’s that kid who pissed off all the upperclassmen by landing a lead role her freshman year
  • she allegedly stole the part from martine rousseau’s sister
  • martine’s in root’s year
  • the show was seussical the muscial and root was the cat in the hat
  • the rousseaus and most of the juniors and seniors that year were pissed
  • root didn’t win a lot (read: any) friends that year, but she also didn’t give a rat’s behind
  • she’s there for the audience validation, not theirs
  • the director and choreographer and music director all adore her
  • she’s a quick learner, polite, and always smiles sweetly even when taking criticism
  • the only friend she makes that year is harold finch, another first-year
  • he’s on running crew because that’s where everyone starts, but his real goal is to be the lighting technician
  • he has a hard time on running crew due to a lower back injury sustained as a kid
  • he ends up being demoted to prop master, and root’s among the only cast members who leave their props where they’re supposed to
  • she always helps finch track the pieces down after rehearsals
  • sophomore year john reese transfers to their school
  • he’s from out of state and was a big Theatre Kid™ at his old school
  • the guy can slay a monologue, and his deadpan comedic timing is brilliant
  • he and root end up playing a married couple in the fall play of ‘see how they run’
  • they have an uneasy sort-of-friendship
  • and no chemistry whatsoever
  • john and /harold/ on the other hand……..
  • root works really hard on being nice and friendly with john so that she can invite him to get dinner with her and harold after rehearsal one night
  • it’s another four months before they start Officially Dating, but they’re very cute and harold helps john run lines and john listens dreamily to finch’s explanations of how /he’d/ do the lighting if /he/ had a say
  • some of the other cast members (the same upperclassmen who’ve given root a hard time) look down on the boyos
  • there’s an unspoken Do Not Cross line between cast and crew, and dating across that line is taboo and also unheard of
  • a lot of mean comments are made about finch behind john’s back
  • one day root walks into the green room where a bunch of them are hanging out and shuts the door behind her
  • when she walks back out nine minutes later, it’s dead silent
  • no one ever says a word about her boys again
  • the musical that year is a disaster. it’s les mis and it’s. it’s a shitshow
  • the ensemble is huge. the staging is overly ambitious. the cast ends up divided in two due to The Incident
  • theatre kids are so dramatic oh my god
  • a bunch of new kids get inducted into the theatre program because it’s such a big show. auditions are huge, the selected cast is huge, there are lots of unfamiliar faces
  • among them is joss carter, cast as fantine
  • someone (jeremy lambert, senior and renowned dickhead) makes a disgusting joke about her
  • john and root are in earshot and call him out
  • The Great Divide is not even over whether his joke was appropriate (it wasn’t) but whether or not carter tripping him moments later was intentional
  • he falls down the stairs leading offstage and breaks his nose
  • he can’t sing until the swelling goes down, so his role as enjolras goes temporarily to stagehand sameen shaw, who just happens to be unfortunate enough to fall in the director’s line of sight when looking for a stand-in
  • it’s just for the blocking, initially. but there are complications with lambert’s surgery to reset his nose (he tried to do it himself in an effort to speed up the recovery) and once they realize shaw can SING she’s a permanent cast member
  • ironically, shaw was only a stagehand for mandatory credit points for her tech theatre class
  • which she’d been placed in by accident to begin with
  • so half the cast is crying sabotage while the other defends carter and shaw to the death
  • shaw couldn’t care less
  • carter just wants her first show to go smoothly
  • it doesnt
The song [Tyler Lambert’s Grave] is about how sometimes we’re walking around with scars that seem so deep that it feels like they’ll never heal, and how hard it can be to believe that they’ll ever stop bleeding, and how sometimes we see somebody who doesn’t make it and we feel a kinship with that person, a shared grief. That feeling of horror and sadness when somebody doesn't make it, that sadness over wishing someone could have helped. The way you sometimes see your own face in the image of somebody who never quite got free of his demons.

I’ve been watching Doctor Who one episode a day from the start for a while, and I thought I’d do an Illustration based on each story. Watching Doctor Who like the because of Phil Sandifer’s Tardis Eruditorum, which I’m reading at the moment.

These are my Illustrations based on An Unearthly Child, The Daleks, The Edge of Destruction and Marco Polo. 

I finished watching The Romans today so I’ve got some catching up today.

Share if you like them, I want as many people as possible to see them.

It was 1538 and John Lambert had been outed as an Edian when, after hearing Frederic Clarence had written a pamphlet denouncing Edian magic, he turned into a dog and ate the papers, prompting Clarence to cry out, “That dog ate my scriptwork!”
