Imagine, like, a pitch perfect movie, but there’s this one singer like, who knows literally no pop music. They can sing but, like, they’re totally useless in the riff offs, and they get teased and made fun of cause they’re the biggest musical theatre nerd. Except at the end of the movie, the riff off category is ‘songs from musicals’ and everyone’s like ughhh whatt but that one kid is like OH MY GOD YES YOU BITCES BETTER BE READY and everyones like eww can’t we have a different category and then they start with something rlly jazzy like ‘hey big spender’ and ppl are impressed cause they thought all musical theatre music was rlly ugh and boring and uncool. And all the other teams are rlly struggling to even keep up and they’re all doing really predictable obvious stuff from disney films n stuff, and even the kid’s own team are like, almost lost and they’re just following cause this guy HAS FKN GOT THIS. and (s)he’s winning so good and is just DOIN IT. and then they sing like ‘so big/so small’ or something and they get to ‘is there another truck in the driveway? A truck that will take mommy away?’ and people are like Oh. Oh no. OH NO I DIDN’T COME TO THIS RIFF OFF TO HAVE THE PACIFIC OCEAN COME OUT MY EYES and from then on no one makes fun of them ever again
and I don’t think you understand how much I want this to be real cause tbh that kid would literally be me.
Tuck Everlasting (1808): The Tucks drink from the spring.
Tuck Everlasting (1893): Jesse Tuck befriends Winnie Foster and gives her a small bottle of spring water. He also collects a second bottle of water which he takes with him, should he come across another partner in crime.
1897-1899: While on one of the Tuck family 10 year breaks Jesse goes to New York where he starts a new life. He become good friends with Morris Delancey and eventually gives him the bottle of spring water. But they eventually have a falling out. They fight and Oscar Delancey steps in (unaware of the fact that Jesse can’t be hurt) and “wounds” Jesse. Of course Jesse has to go along with it. He starts limping and gets himself the nickname “Crutchie”
Newsies (1899):Working as a newsboy now, Jesse ends up being best friends with the strike leader Jack Kelly. Sometime after the strike is over Morris and Jesse reconnect. Not as friends, but because they know they’re all they’ve got in their never ending life.
1903: During the next Tuck family meet up Jesse brings Morris with him. The Tuck family was taken aback at first, but eventually welcomes Morris into their family. Morris and Angus end up growing very close and form a strong father-son bond.
1994: Over the years Angus and Mae had their difficulties and did eventually split up. Morris and Angus generally traveled together during their 10-year breaks. During one of the breaks Angus and Morris decided to start fresh in a new location with new names. So they changed their names to Larry and Connor.
2008-2009: Larry meets a woman named Cythia and they fell in love, got engaged, and then married. Both had kids from a previous “relationship” (Larry had Connor and Cynthia had Zoe), but each treated the unrelated child as if they were their own. Larry never told Cynthia the truth.
Dear Evan Hansen (2010-2011): Connor knew he couldn’t stick around much longer because he wouldn’t be aging. Larry could stay since he was older, but he knew Connor was right. So Larry helped Connor fake a suicide (he did the hard things because it was the right thing). (Entire plot of Dear Evan Hansen plays out.)
Pitch Perfect (2012-2013): After taking a gap year to work at The Pottery Barn, Evan Hansen began attending college near home. However, his lie eventually came out. He was publicly reprimanded for it to the point that he just had to get away. So he opted for out-of-state schooling at Barden University in Georgia. But in order to make sure he wouldn’t be ridiculed for what he had done he started going by a different name: Benji Applebaum
I know we all talk about Ben Platt’s beautiful singing voice but can we talk about his regular talking voice??? he could literally be reading a dictionary out loud and I’d still be interested because of how nice his voice sounds
