I imagine Angelica saying some poetic shit like “you have married and Icarus and he flew too close to the sun” when she found out what Alex did, but at the same time I think she’d say something like “I’m gonna castrate that bitch”
I feel like people are missing something really key that happened in the 2016 Tonys performance.
Lin changed one word. But that’s all it took to change the meaning of the performance and the Tonys.
“Weapon with my hands.”
They didn’t just take out the muskets to show solidarity, Lin is trying to teach us that what we do, say and write will change perspective for generations to come. He’s showing us how we don’t need a gun or violence to fight for what we believe in. Like Alexander, we have our hands. Our writing. Our words are immortalised when we write, no matter who takes us away. The massacre in Orlando has devastated our country, but why stay silent? Why give them what they want and silence ourselves? We need to make something that is immortalised. Teach generations that come that you can take away our loved ones, but you can NEVER take our words.
I wanted someone strong who could protect me. I let his anger fester and infect me. His solution is a lie. No one here deserves to die except for me and the monster I created. Yeah! Yeah! Heads up, JD, I’m a dead girl walking!
Sat down and finally slapped some color into this doodle.
