what about a rent au?? since Lin was roger once it seems perfect
Robin De Jesus was the understudy for Angel in one production too! I’m all for this AU except I feel like I’m the ONLY person on Earth who STILL hasn’t seen Rent. The only songs I’ve ever heard are Seasons of Love and Tango Maureen and reading the basic summary didn’t help much, not to mention that I’ve heard people kinda compare ITH to Rent calling it Rent without AIDs which seems kinda accurate but what do I know?
So I have NO IDEA what the story would be but I think Usnavi and Benny could be Mark and Roger and Sonny and Pete could be Maureen and Joanne and Kevin could be Benjamin. I actually remember reading an ITH fic on Ao3 where Benny from ITH and Rent were the same person so that’s a neat AU/crossover. But I guess Vanessa and Nina could be Mimi and Angel maybe?? I really have no clue. Please Rent fans, add on to this with your own ideas and plots!!
