requiem

ben platt has committed so much to portraying social anxiety in dear evan hansen and has even said in interviews that he has developed some of evan’s ticks, such as bad posture, biting his nails, etc. also, he worked with writers to make the ticks accurate as the show was being developed and he also is originating the role like it’s amazing, the portrayal and the passion blow me away,,, just another reason to luv ben platt

holy. shit.

so I was looking over the sheet music of the solo version of requiem

and there’s another fucking verse???

that isn’t in the musical?  but it was written by pasek and paul and is released to the public so like….. it’s canon?

what does this mean for zoe’s character??? for connor’s character???? WHY ISN’T ANYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS?????

In honor of the cast album release! Special thanks to @whatlikeitshardtobethebard for putting up with me and my constant need for approval as I made these

Newsies, Wicked Part 1 / Part 2, Something Rotten!, Les Miserables Part 1 / Part 2 , Waitress, Cinderella, Bonnie & Clyde

«Non c'è niente da fare, resti sempre in testa.»

— Claver Gold feat Rancore; Il meglio di me

listening to the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack without the context of the show is like listening to the story of a boy who wants to preserve the legacy of his best friend because he cares so much about him and not enough about himself and he ends up having a mental breakdown because he cares too much about everything and it’s really cute and kinda depressing but still heartwarming

bUT 

WATCHING DEAR EVAN HANSEN WITH CONTEXT IS LIKE BEING HIT BY A GODDAMN FREIGHT TRAIN AND LEARNING THAT THE SAME BOY IS A COMPLETE ANXIOUS LIAR AND HE BARELY EVEN CARED ABOUT THAT SUPPOSED BEST FRIEND AND HE ENDS UP HAVING A MENTAL BREAKDOWN THROUGH THE WHOLE SHOW BUT SOMEHOW…SOME F*CKING HOW…YOU STILL LOVE HIM AND ITS THE MOST DEPRESSING THING IN THE ENTIRE WORLD

- It’s not worth it, Scully.

- What?

- I want you to go home.

- Oh, Mulder, I’m going to be fine.

- No, I’ve been thinking about it. Looking at you tonight, holding that baby… knowing everything that’s been taken away from you. A chance for motherhood and your health and that baby.

- Requiem [S07E22]

¿Alguna vez te preguntaste por qué siempre te obsequie girasoles?, ¿Por qué no eran rosas o margaritas? Las rosas son demasiado comunes, en cuanto a regalar flores se refiere. Las margaritas se deshojan para saber si una persona te quiere o no, una acción que valora muy poco la belleza de esta flor. Sin embargo los girasoles tienen un significado metafórico más alla de su resplandeciente hermosura. Te daba girasoles porque quería que aún en tus días nublados, despertaras con un pequeño sol sobre tu buró, quería que sus pétalos te dieran el calor que el sol otorga con sus rayos, trataba de que al ver su amarillo brillante, te recordará que la naturaleza puede contagiarte de una alegria diferente, esa alegría que sólo te dan la pequeñas cosas de la vida, su forma redonda y amplia representa el faro que aluza el camino de nuestro amor, siempre encendido cuidando cada uno de nuestros pasos. Quizás ese significado es más mío que lo que realmente representa esta bella flor, pero como sabes, mi forma de ser es así, normalmente a todo lo que a ti refiere, trató de darle un significado más valioso, donde sepas que no solo es un te quiero, detrás de este vienen todas las sonrisas que me robas, las caricias, mi corazón rogandome que haga algo, para que te enteres que está de ti inmensamente enamorado. En este caso es una flor, con un significado que quizás nunca supiste, pero que ahora trató de que lo notes. Para muchos sólo es un girasol, para mí es una forma diferente de representar nuestro amor.
