“People tend to think that hate is the most dangerous emotion. But love is equally dangerous,” Will said. “There are many stories of spirits haunting the places and people who meant the most to them. In fact, there are more of those than there are revenge stories.”


Just a bunch of chess pieces moved about by unseen hands in a universe bored with itself. And now here she was, just another pawn. Evie wanted to cry. From fear. From exhaustion, yes. But mostly from the cruel uselessness, the damned stupid arbitrariness of it all.


“There is no greater power on this earth than story.” Will paced the length of the room. “People think boundaries and borders build nations. Nonsense—words do. Beliefs, declarations, constitutions—words. Stories. Myths. Lies. Promises. History.” Will grabbed the sheaf of newspaper clippings he kept in a stack on his desk. “This, and these”—he gestured to the library’s teeming shelves—“they’re a testament to the country’s rich supernatural history.”

I really tend to listen to either entire musicals at a time (les mis and hamilton), the star wars soundtracks, or just put a song on repeat (Little Game by Benny, Sarajevo 12/24). idk I really like big swooping orchestra movements that all come together like Non-Stop or One Day More. (i'm now on Requiem and still having emotions)

Ooh then I think a good idea might be to look at musicals that have won the Tony for Best Orchestration! It’s only been handed out since ‘97, so there’s a fair amount of musicals without maybe overloading you with too much. I’ll also bold some of my favourites

  • Titanic
  • Ragtime
  • Fosse
  • Kiss Me, Kate
  • The Producers
  • Thoroughly Modern Millie
  • Movin’ Out
  • Assassins
  • The Light in the Piazza
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Spring Awakening
  • In The Heights
  • Billy Elliot
  • Next to Normal
  • Memphis
  • The Book of Mormon
  • Once
  • Kinky Boots
  • The Bridges of Madison County
  • An American in Paris
  • Hamilton

I can promise you though, I’m also a huge fan of overlapping musical themes! But all of these musicals are pretty stellar in my opinion (nothing against the ones I didn’t choose, I just don’t personally love them)
