Rehearsing “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (Fifty Shades Darker)” for DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night

anonymous asked:

I'm so glad you like getting headcanon requests cause boy howdy do I have a few. Do you have any thoughts about mundane setting AUs for wolf359? Like the characters working in a store or something?

okay I had exactly 0 inspiration today for retail AUs that weren’t just retreads of funnier ones other people have done so instead please accept one of my favorite AUs which is the “shitty high school production of Hamlet” AU

  • Hera is a sophomore and runs the lighting booth. It is not her fault that there is no budget and everything is broken. She’s an angel and we’re glad she’s here.
  • Eiffel is a sophomore and the stage manager. He is a disgrace to a noble profession. No one even knows why he’s here except that there are rumors about his failing grades and a deal with that one creepy teacher Mr. Cutter.
  • The two of them are constantly in trouble for talking and giggling with one another over their headsets when everyone else is trying to do the goddamn show
  • Eiffel has almost been killed by set pieces more than once. What a tragic way to die, crushed under hundreds of pounds of scrap wood and casters. No, he’s not faking it, he’s been deathly injured, honest.
  • Minkowski is a junior and the student director, and really wanted to be in the play, but god dammit, if she’s going to direct, she’s going to direct, no matter what this shitshow is turning out like. She is committed to this play. She is so committed. She is living powered by stress and caffeine.
  • It doesn’t help that rehearsal schedules mean that she hasn’t seen her bf who writes for the school paper in? days?? Weeks??? He keeps texting her jokingly asking if she’s dead. (It’s probably still a joke.)
  • Lovelace is a senior and the one who actually wanted to direct, but since she left the drama department for a couple years to focus on the basketball team, Minkowski got tapped instead, so now she’s somewhat belligerently playing Hamlet.
  • Which is not a bad thing by anyone else’s estimation, because Isabel Lovelace’s Hamlet is both glorious and terrifying to behold.
  • SI5 are a bunch of seniors who act like they’re running the show and are generally more difficult to deal with even than Eiffel. This does not change the fact that Kepler as Claudius is genuinely creepy (although he clearly thinks he should have been Hamlet). Maxwell and Jacobi are playing Ophelia and Laertes and have an infinitely more convincing relationship with one another than either has with Lovelace. Both think they would have been better in the other role.
  • Hera’s older sister Rhea is playing Gertrude. She does not deserve to be a part of this mess.
  • Hilbert was probably cast as Horatio on the basis that everyone’s pretty sure he and Lovelace WERE old friends but that was definitely a mistake because they have not talked to one another in at least two years after The Incident (no one knows what The Incident was except Fourier and Hui and they’re not telling)
  • No one in the cast can stand one another. Every rehearsal is one tech disaster after another. Half the cast suddenly comes down with the flu. Will they ever make it to opening night? (Probably not.)
  • Lambert is Polonius.
