FOLKS WHERE IS THE LOVE FOR IF/THEN??????? It has probs the best LGBQT representation I’ve seen - openly bi man who sings ‘find myself a woman, or a man, and have a son’ (this is the most clearly bi line I’ve ever heard ever?????), is in a relationship with a woman in one timeline and a man in the other, a lesbian relationship which is literally just like any other? they get married, fight, love each other etc? their being gay is not of any significance to the relationship, it just is what it is! and an openly gay man who is in a relationship with the bi man. None of the sexualities are major plot points - it’s simply who they are, and there is no joking about any of it or treating their relationships differently because they are GayTM.
Literally there are 7 characters, 3 are straight, 3 are gay and 1 is bi??? And it’s just who they are??? It’s just how it is and jfc this show needs more appreciation bc it also has bloody fantastic music and the storyline is so clever and if you need any more incentive to watch it just watch Idina’s performance at the Tony’s bc boy oh boy it will blow your mind.
Also the cast is bangin??? Like, Idina, Anthony Rapp, FUCKING LACHANZE???????? AND JENN COLELLA??? James Snyder????
Please please please watch it it’s such a fucking good show you will not regret it except when it makes you bawl your eyes out
This past summer a musical about a lesbian and her complicated relationship with her queer father swept the Tony’s and performed a song about queer identity on live network television.
This coming summer the Tony’s will no doubt be utterly taken over by a hip hop musical staring people of color that talks about how this country was built by immigrants and poor people and best revival may very well go to a bilingual production performed in both English and ASL featuring numerous deaf and disabled performers.
It’s a pretty great time to be a theatre nerd is what I’m saying.

I have gained so many more followers since I last did one of these so time to either a. amaze or b. scare you all with whatever the hell my music taste is. Enjoy all! I linked them all because I believe in sharing the music. Prepare yourself for literally no cohesive genre or style.
Corey Taylor has been featured here twice because Stone Sour’s new release reminded me of how much I bloody love that big-necked man (if anyone is wondering who he is he’s the frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour and just overall a guy in the land of metal and rock who hasn’t revealed himself to be an arsehole yet)
There are so many more than this if I’m honest but alas the tag says ten so I must follow the rules (hehhhhh fuck)
I d o n a t e my s o u l ∞ A Simon Monroe playlist prior to and after The Rising, and all that sadness that comes along with him.
“I balanced all, brought all to mind, The years to come seemed waste of breath, A waste of breath the years behind In balance with this life, this death.”

Headcanon: Peter always worried about not being as cool as his friends. In third year, he got himself an old secondhand guitar and taught himself how to play, thinking that would make him seem cooler. James and Sirius teased him a bit, but Remus alway encouraged him. After Peter “died”, his mother gave the guitar to Remus, telling him that Peter would have wanted him to have it. Remus taught himself to play during the Lost Years, especially songs he remembered his friend playing. He always felt closer to Peter when he played.
