The Oath of the Stage Manager’s Watch

The house is open, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until the last cast member has left the theatre. I shall take no breaks, answer no texts, check no Tumblr. I shall wear no color and receive no applause. I will live and caffeinate at my post. I am the glow-tape in the darkness. I am the watcher in the booth. I am the shield that guards the realm of actors. I pledge my life and honor to the theatre, for this show and for all shows of the run.

Nick Fury gave me this badge. When he did, I swore an oath, we all did. To serve when everything else fails, to be humanity’s last line of defence, to be the shield.

were you told or did you have to read it? No, I opened the script for episode nine and started reading this epic battle sequence that lasts the whole hour. 100,000 versus 100, guarding the Wall for honour, and the survival of mankind and I get to page 92, there’s this scream of Night’s Watch oath going into battle and there’s the gate in front of me,

The Oath of the Night Watch, as said by Corporal Carrot in “Men at Arms”

I, [recruit’s name], do solemnly swear by [recruit’s deity of choice] to uphold the Laws and Ordinances of the city of Ankh-Morpork, serve the public trust, and defend the subjects of His/Her (delete whichever is inappropriate) Majesty [name of reigning monarch] without fear, favour, or thought of personal safety; to pursue evildoers and protect the innocent, laying down my life if necessary in the cause of said duty, so help me [aforesaid deity]. Gods Save the King/Queen (delete whichever is inappropriate).

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.” ―The Night’s Watch oath

“My watch has ended.”  ―Jon Snow
