captain underpants is a book series written by dav pilkey, who was often punished in school and reprimanded because he had ADHD and dyslexia, and he created captain underpants while sitting in the hall being punished for “misbehaving.” when he wrote captain underpants, he encouraged the behaviors that he was so often yelled at for, and encouraged creativity and humor, mostly the very type of creativity and humor that got him in trouble in the first place, despite his teachers literally telling him that his comics were useless and there was no way he could make that into his living. instead of giving up, he wrote a beloved book series that had two cannonically ADHD characters who were told that their ADHD was not only okay, but wonderful, one of whom is cannonically gay and grows up to have a husband, in a book that flat out makes fun of the GOP in the first few chapters, and i am being completely and utterly serious when i say that we do not deserve dav pilkey or the captain underpants books and it makes me want to tear up as a pan kid w/ severe ADHD because this means so much to me
VANESSA J AS BLUE SARGENT
I’m a lover of books and The Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series of all time I AM OBSESSED!
I was planning on recreating a scene from the book but then I found out they were making the series into a tv series…I flipped out when I heard this because I am excited and nervous. Mostly because I’m worried that I wouldn’t get a chance to audition for Blue.
Tiny resume: I’ve been performing for 11 years, I’ve been in theatre competitions where I won best in show at district level and straight superiors at state level, and I am in the international theatre thespians society.
I hate talking about myself like that but it is to show that I am experienced in acting!
Blue and I both have a different sense of style, and strong personalities. I was hoping that I could get the support from the fandom because it would break my heart if I don’t get a chance to at least audition for a character I love and relate to deeply.

“ronan, an irish name meaning “little seal” (rón meaning “seal”, and -án being a diminutive suffix)”. doesn’t sound very relevant to our ronan lynch, until you consider the mythology behind seals in ireland.
have you ever heard the story of the selkie? seal creatures living in the ocean who shapeshift into humans when on land. in doing so, they leave behind their seal skin, which they need in order to return to the ocean.
usually the story goes that a fisherman finds a selkie maiden’s seal skin and hides it from her, trapping her on land. the selkie becomes the fisherman’s wife and has his children, but the ocean is always her true home.
a mother from another world. a husband who has trapped her in this one. and their child, half of this world, half not. a little seal.
“Australia, you are so special. Look to the person next to you and say ‘you are so special.’ It’s okay to let that guard down sometimes. It’s okay to show that vulnerability. We’re all human we’re all going through the same things. Maybe different, but we’re all hurting inside. So lets stick together”
