Home for the Holidays

Hi @usukdorkfanfics,  I’m your secret santa !! admittedly, i was already kinda nervous to write something for you because I really like your fics! I was also a little worried with just the prompt of “human au”, but I ended up running away with it and got lost lmao ouo;; I hope your Christmas celebrations are going well and you enjoy! C: Merry Christmas!!

Title: Home for the Holidays

Summary: Alfred waits tables and sings on the sidewalks of New York City in his struggle to survive in the heart of such an active town. When he meets Arthur, a well-off lawyer with a bad taste in coffee and a love for restaurant pies, he doesn’t expect to have his most challenging Christmas wish granted, and the potential of something more.

Rating: G

If an actor or an actress doesn’t want to sign on for more episodes of a show, that’s a completely understandable choice. But as a writer, if they are your stars, you don’t f’in kill them off. You don’t rob fans of the possibility of a happy ending somewhere. You can’t expect to take that person away and expect everyone to continue welcoming the show with open arms. Instead, you give them the final season they’d always deserved. That would’ve made Nashville wonderful, but no – apparently that’s too much.

One Tree Hill was often a shit show, but at least when Chad Michael Murray wanted out, the series found a way to give Lucas and Peyton their happy ending. 

It’d be like Prison Break killing off Michael Scofield mid season and then saying lol, continue watching – we plan to go on for seasons to come. No.

You don’t do that shit. You don’t kill of the main character mid season after fans fought to get your cancelled show back on air. I’ve never felt so cheated and disrespected as a fan. I would’ve rather Rayna Jaymes decided it’s time to move away from Nashville and retire in Wisconsin. Or go off to LA for the music scene. NY. Anything would’ve been better than murdering her.

As far as I’m concerned, Nashville ended two weeks ago and she’s alive and well.


Angel of Music/Little Lotte/Mirror scene

Teresia Bokor, Tomas Ambt Kofod, Flemming Enevold, Jennifer Wagstaffe and Marie Bo, Det Ny Teater, Copenhagen 2009. 

Some of my favourite details: 
*Christine’s reaction to Meg’s appearance 
*Meg whispering “tell me” after her singing, Christine shaking her head 
*The dance captain counting in French, very audible, in the background 
*Guttural R on all French names. Chhhrrrristine Daaé…. Mmmmmh. 
*Raoul looking at the champagne and looking quite content with it
*Teresia Bokor’s voice 
*How perfect amount of smoke the mirror scene has
