senior year, the theatre club somehow convinces mr. reyes to let them put on high school musical
honestly they probably just start chanting WILDCATS WILDCATS WILDCATS when they’re discussing what to put on (rich starts it, president christine is apprehensive but joins in) and he’s just tired of dealing with them
jeremy is troy
christine is gabriella
brooke is sharpay
jake is chad
chloe is taylor
rich is ryan
jenna is kelsi
(michael is tech because honestly i think his anxiety would be too bad to be actually acting in front of So Many People. plus i cant find it atm but there’s an answer from tracz that says he does join tech crew in senior year)
jeremy is the Most Dramatic so naturally he fits as troy “run around an entire golf course for no apparent reason” / “i don’t want the team to find out i like to sing so i’ll burst into song during practice” bolton
everyone: we need to make christine less perfect she’s not working as a super geeky shy girl jeremy: just have her pretend science is theatre (it works to make her geeky but somehow that makes her more perfect?? oh well)
rich can hit those high notes holy hell
brooke isn’t a wonderful actor but she’s told “act like chloe” and that…….. works. they rewrite it so taylor & sharpay are a secret power couple because honestly,, biggest chemistry
as jeremy sings “MY HEAD’S IN THE GAME BUT MY HEART’S IN THE SOOOONGGGG” (his voice breaks halfway through. every damn time. reyes says it adds to the general Teenage Angst. he is so tired) michael snickers off-stage. rich just looks at him like “you’re in love with That”
he kinda shuts up during “stick to the status quo” though (relax, jake) “wait aren’t you supposed to be in this number too” “SHIT”
The thing that gets me the most about legally blonde the musical is that in Omigod, Elle’s sorority sisters call Elle and Warren are the perfect couple because “we love you guys.” Elle responds with “No I love you guys!” However in comparison in the last song, there is a reprise where the same girls call Elle and Emmett are the perfect couple “because we love you guys.” This time both Elle and Emmett respond with “No WE love you guys!”
To me this speaks volumes because it tells me that Warren didn’t like Elle’s friends, he just dealt with them and Emmett sees their true worth and how much they lift up the woman he loves and honestly Legally Blonde is so good and pure and I love it.
One of the things I adore about the banquet reveal was how well everything came together at once, and you get this epiphany moment I hadn’t experienced since reading Fight Club for the first time. It pulled together not only the most obvious pieces of the story (e.g., poor Victor’s desperation to get laid in the first 3 episodes), but also the tiniest lines, and the latter is what I wanna talk about.
The attention to detail on this show makes me lose my mind. There’s so much work that has to be done to get foreshadowing to work properly; I think your audience should be smacking themselves with the realization that “we were told, but we didn’t listen!” and YOI managed to do that with at least a couple short lines that came quickly and unassumingly and left just as quick. The first line I noticed was in the first episode, and it’s something Yuuko says after Yuuri performs Stammi Vicino for her:
“A perfect copy of Victor.” You have no idea how much that line bothered me, because, based on all the evidence we had in the first couple episodes, there was no reason Yuuri should be a perfect copy of Victor! Stammi is a song about longing for another/something and not being able to reach them/it. We knew early on what this song means to Yuuri; we knew already that Victor was Yuuri’s idol and Yuuri’s version of the skate could easily be (and probably is/was) about him. Yuuri was where he perceived to be at the rock bottom of his life, so it makes sense for him to feel that sort of longing. Therefore, the comparison to Victor, a playboy at the top of the world who can have anything/one he wants at any moment, seemingly made no sense.
(Funnily enough, I remember tagging a gifset of Victor skating Stammi with something along the lines of “i’d like to see his skating post-yuuri, i’m interested in how different it would be,” oh past me, you had a big storm comin!)
The other one occurred in episode 5 at the Japanese regionals. During Yuuri’s Eros, he says this:
And I remember being like “?????what????why????” well-crafted shows never bring attention to something we already know about unless it’s incredibly important to the story.
We all know the original Eros story: playboy comes into town, seduces most beautiful woman, leaves her heartbroken in the end. The moment Yuuri identified himself with the woman in the story in episode 3, the woman becomes a stand-in for Yuuri. Any time the woman is mentioned after this point, it’s specifically about Yuuri.
Anyway, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, Yuuri changes the story around. The woman, Yuuri himself, leaves at the end of the story and breaks the heart of playboy instead. I think at this point in the series, it’s valid to identify Victor with the playboy since, you know, that’s who Yuuri’s trying to seduce outside of the story.
(lol also they have a shot of Victor when he says “love-crazed couple,” like……subtle guys…….)
Now, there’s a difference between lines for the audience and lines for the characters. I think this one falls under both categories.
Pre-banquet reveal, this can only be interpreted as character development for Yuuri. He’s gaining confidence and can create the idea that he could have the power over another person to break their heart. This is a huge step for Yuuri and his self worth.
That’s the line in-canon, or the line for the characters as I said above. Here’s the line as for the audience.
Post-banquet reveal, we can now interpret that line as a massive hint to us about the true Eros story! The sentence is not only Yuuri’s progression through his arc, but also foreshadowing for the audience to pick up on later!
I love this show!!
(moral of story: if something you’re watching or reading has a line, or a look, or an event that’s repeated or specifically brought attention to, even in the most casual way, it’s probably something you should look for later. it’s gonna be important.)
summary : After the divorce of your parents, you thought love was just a chemical reaction, but after spending a little bit of time with Archie Andrews as you helped him with his music, you begin to think otherwise.
a/n : of course this imagine is based on the amazing song ‘the only exception’ by paramore! it’s definitely worth checking out if you haven’t heard it! i also decided to split it into two separate imagines cause it’d be way to long as one! part two will be put up tomorrow! c:
You were ten years old when your parents divorced. It was ten years that you thought they were the perfect couple. Of course every kid thinks that their parents are perfect, well ones like you that is. You didn’t even see it coming. They never fought or even raised their voice to each other; at least not in front of you.
Note: This one came out so cute at the end. It’s basically from everyone’s point of view except yours. I’m trying a different approach haha.
Request where Daveed is super nervous and can never get a word out around Y/N because he likes her so much. He writes a rap song about her that the rest of the cast discovers (without him knowing) and Rafael performs it while the rest of the cast does the back-up vocals for a Ham4Ham and it ends with Y/N kissing Daveed and asking him out. I’m sorry this prompt is so long, I just absolutely adore your writing. Thank you!
Word Count: 2157
Pairing: Daveed Diggs x Reader
Warning: None, secondhand embarrassment, Daveed being a shy lil bean
“Hey Daveed,” You greeted, walking into the room. “What’s up, Rafa?”
“Hey,” Daveed said softly, his brain automatically forgetting every word he’d ever learned.
“Hey Y/N, how was your day?” Rafa said, striking up a conversation.
“Eh, tiring, but I’m fine.” You sighed, leaning against the doorway Daveed’s dressing room. “What about you guys?”
“My day’s been great. I’ve just been hanging around. Talking to people, eating, writing, you know the drill.” Rafa chuckled.
“Nice.” You laughed. “What about you Daveed? How was the show?”
Daveed hesitated before responding. “It was good.”
“Good? That’s it? C’mon, you can do better than that, Diggs.” Rafa said, making Daveed shrug.
“Hyung?” Jimin whispered as he peeped his head from behind the bedroom door. It wasn’t surprising to see a blanket burrito stuffed with only the most premium of geniuses: Min Yoongi. All that was needed was a side of guac.
“Hyung, are you awake?” With every step Jimin took, the ground beneath him creaked just slightly. From within the encased ball of cloth annoyed groans could be heard,
“Does it look like I’m awake?” A small tuft of black fluffy hair and the tired, irritated face of its owner could be seen from a teensiest of holes that breached his fortress.
I'm not sure if this went through but ^.^ how would Noodle act in a relationship with a girl?? Also if you can do the members reactions that would be amazing thank you!!
- As evidenced in almost every phase 4 picture ever, Noodle’s fashion sense is amazing. She would definitely take her girlfriend shopping for clothes a lot. She says you look good in every outfit you put on. - If your hair’s long enough, she loves styling and playing with it. - She loves taking you on dates. She takes you to really cool places, like museums, parks, etc. Her favorite place to take you is a hill a couple miles from her and the other’s house (it kind of looks like the windmill island from phase 2). The two of you have nice talks and sometimes she’ll play her guitar for you. - Every time a love song comes on, whether you know it or not, she nudges you and says “Look, this is our song!” - She’d teach you Japanese if you wanted her to! - She’s a perfect cuddler because she loves being big spoon but she’s so short that she’d be a perfect little spoon. - You and her are Katsu’s parents. She no longer has to be a single mother. - She learns how to play a lot of your favorite songs on her guitar and she loves to surprise you with them. - She plays video games with you a lot, but she’s very skilled at them. She’ll beat you a lot, so she lets you win sometimes. - Noodle is very nice and kind but if anyone tries messing with you she will fight to the death. - She shows you off to everyone, she’s very happy to have you as her girlfriend. - You two have of lazy mornings often. You’ll both sit in your pajamas until 12:00pm, cuddling and watching old Cartoon Network shows together.
As for the others’ reactions:
- Russel’s happy for her, but he’s very protective over Noodle. It takes him a little while to trust you completely, but once he does he treats you very nicely. - Murdoc wouldn’t really care who she’s with, as long as they’re good to Noodle. He wouldn’t admit it, but he’s almost as protective of Noodle as Russel is. - 2D hasn’t ever been able to keep a girlfriend, so he’s proud of her. He thinks the both of you make an adorable couple.
Summary:You and the boys have the same idea, but there is conflict in the situation.
Authors Notes: I wrote on this for a week, but it probably isn’t my best. I just felt it was a while since it was the last time I posted.
“This is perfect,” John said.
“Agreed, mon amour,” Laf said kissing his cheek.
“I can’t believe we are doing this,” Hercules said excitedly examining what everyone was awing over.
“All is left to do is to finish writing the song,” Alexander said.
The boys made their way to the subway quickly. On the train Alex and John sat on the bench with Laf and Herc standing in front of the holding hands. People were staring so Alexander leaned over to John and pulled him into a kiss making everyone dart their eyes away. Herc gave Alex a wink.
On the walk from the subway to the apartment the boys were quiet. When they came in you still weren’t home so they still had time to finish what they needed to. You got home about an hour later and all the boys came and hugged you. This hasn’t happened in a while so you were caught off guard until you remembered it was your anniversary.
“Happy Anniversary!!” you told the boys giving each of them a kiss, “Let’s get ready, we should get going soon.”
“Yes ma’am,” John mocked.
You and the boys were in the room getting ready for dinner. Tonight was y’all’s 3 year anniversary. Reservations were made at Eleven Madison Park , which was a group favorite. You noticed the boys were taking their time making sure every wrinkle was out of their clothes and their hair was perfect. Hercules decided not to wear a hat, Alex only pulled half of his hair up into a nice bun. Laf and John left their perfect curls down. You but on your favorite outfit and did your hair.
“Y’all took your time getting ready, more than usual, I mean. Is there something else planned i don’t know about?” you asked.
“Non, mon chéri, we just want to look our best for you.” Laf responded.
“We want to look good for each other,” Hercules corrected.
John was hiding his face so you knew something was up. You just hoped it didn’t interfere with what you had planned for later. After dinner you suggested a walk through the park on the way home. The boys said they already planned on it. Y’all started walking then stopped when you reached the big fountain. The boys loved the fountain, Alex sat near it when he needed a relaxing environment to write, Laf visited it when he was missing home, John liked to look at all of the coins and tried to find the oldest one, and Herc used it as a relaxing place for sketches. You arranged to have it filled with roses and candles. As they awed and stared at the fountain you got on your knee and pulled out a big ring box and cleared your throat. They all turned around.
“(Y/N), what are you doing?” Herc asked.
“Well what does it look like? I love every single one of you. I don’t want to live without any of you. Each of your different personalities make me a better person and I need it to survive. So, will you, Alexander Hamilton John Laurens, Hercules Mulligan, and Gilbert de Motier, Marquis de Lafayette marry me?”
“Only if,” Alex started, “You marry us.”
All four boys got down on a knee and Alex pulled out a ring.
“Of course! I do have to ask though, how long have y’all planned this?”
“Oui, mon amour, we have planned on this for months. We even had a song written and much more planned.”
You sunk down and lowered your head. Tears came to the brim of your eyes. The boys rushed to your side to comfort you.
“Hey, what’s the matter? This is supposed to be a happy thing.” Alexander said.
“I know, but y’all had so much more planned and I ruined it.
(Y/N/N), baby, it’s okay. You don’t understands how much it means to us that you proposed to us. That never happens, a girl proposing to her boyfriend.” John said
“But y’all had so much more planned that wasn’t just getting on a knee and asking.”
“Sometimes that’s when it’s the best. It was so simple, yet it means the world to us,”Herc said giving you a kiss on the back of your head.
Mon amour we can still do everything we had planned if that would make you feel better. We would just already be engaged and that would be wonderful.” Laf suggested.
Alex lifted your head and gave you a kiss. Hercules lifted you to your feet and kissed you. Laf hugged you from behind before giving you a kiss. John reached for your hands, kissed them, then your lips. He swiftly took the box from your hands and looked at the rings.
“(Y/N), this is so sweet, all of our initials are on the inside.” John said.
“I wanted the date too, but there wasn’t enough room.”
“It’s perfect, you’re perfect, this moment is perfect.” Herc said.
“Say, why don’t we put these on?” Alexander asked.
They took the rings out and placed them on their fingers. It took a couple of tried to find their fit but when they did they looked at them and smiled. Alexander whispered something and they all got into a position and he walked over to a bench and pulled out his guitar. They sang and danced to a song they wrote and it was the cutest and funniest thing ever. At the end they all got on one knee and Laf pulled out a box with the most beautiful ring. It had your birthstone in the middle of the ring surrounded by theirs.
“Because we were all born to be together,” John said.
He was always so cheesy but you loved it. You slipped the ring on your finger with tears on the brim of your eyes again, but this time they were happy tears. It fit perfectly. They escorted you to a carriage and took you to all of your favorite spots in the city. When you arrived home you and your boys snuggled in bed with a movie playing. The next morning you woke up and looked at your hand to see if it was all just a crazy dream. It wasn’t and you couldn’t be happier.
I’m not the type of person to get all pissy because a ship is canon or not.
If eremin doesn’t become canon I may get a little pissy.
Like I don’t wanna be that person that is all like “look at my ship it’s so perfect!”
Look at eremin they are so perfect. okay not perfect (because I don’t really think the whole “perfect person/couple exist) but like really really great for each other. They go together like [insert that blabbering from that one song at the end of Grease].
But really though if they don’t become canon how is Isayama gonna explain why they always look so in love with each other?
