This isn't Hamlet, but I wanted to share with you anyway. I've decided that one day, I want to stage a production of Romeo & Juliet where Mercutio is played by a Deaf actor and performs all of his lines in ASL. Valentine will be a character, and tag along with him to serve as his interpreter. There will also be a backdrop screen that has all of the dialogue projected in colored captions (possibly mirroring costume colors) for d/Deaf audience members. This is my new dream.

i love this concept so much and need to see it done


I love this!!!

seductivegrandpa  asked:

Hi, first thank you for this fantastic blog, I use it all the time!! Second, do you know any fixes where Dean and Cas are in a play together?

There’s actually not too many fics that we know of with both Dean and Cas as actors in stage production and majority of those are High school/college AUs. Our actor!cas and actor!dean tags mostly have fics with them being movie stars. 

Here’s some fics that are about stage productions including theater and musicals. We didn’t include ballet here since these can be easily found on our dancer!dean and dancer!cas tags. 

Here’s some DCBB 2016 fics based only on their summary: 

After the Curtain Call [M, 24,600 word count] (The Shape of Things, actor!cas, actor!dean, college)

When Meg breaks her arm in a car accident, Dean steps up during tech week to fulfill her role, making Cas’s crush for him more awkward, due to them portraying lovers. Behind the scenes, when it’s just props and people, Cas spends even more time with Dean whether it is going over lines and blocking or donning white outfits so others can paint on them for the sake of advertising. Cas doesn’t want to end this show run without at least being friends with Dean, but he can’t help to wish it would be more.

Le Tango de Castiel [T, 89,300 word count] (Moulin Rouge, singer!cas, singer!dean)

When Dean returns to Lawrence with a bad audition under his belt and crushed confidence to boot, he agrees to work with Sam on his production of Moulin Rouge for a theatre competition in hopes of starting fresh. But when Sam casts the role of Satine with Castiel Novak, Dean’s life changes forever. 
Before he realizes it, Dean finds himself thrown into a world that looks suspiciously like the original canon they’re portraying on stage, and is caught in an array of arranged marriages, blackmail, affairs, and the most unexpected thing of all: love.

Stage Fright [NC-17, 25,600 word count] (Rent, high school, singer!cas)

Sir Francis High is putting on a production of Rent and Castiel wants a part. Or not. Whatever. He’ll take what he can get cause there’s no way a newbie to the drama club would really get much of anything, right? And because he has crippling stage fright, that’s okay with him. 
When, thanks to his vocal training, he’s cast as Mark, one of the leads and the play’s narrator, he has a panic attack. 
Enter Dean Winchester, Castiel’s long-time crush. Dean talks Cas out of his panic attack and into taking the role. Castiel agrees in no small part because he knows Dean will be there- building the sets and working stage crew. But Dean only joined because he’d have to take his brother Sam to practice anyway, or at least that’s what he says.
When Dean offers to help Castiel with his fear, a new friendship blooms. As they get closer, Castiel begins to realize that he’s not the only one with a fear of putting himself out there. Dean’s as much in the closet as his poster from Rocky Horror, and coming out of it is not going to be easy.

New one shot recs:

The Play’s the thing [T, 2,200 word count] (Romeo and Juliet, actor!dean, actor!cas, high school)

Dean is the lead in the school’s production of Romeo and Juliet, and Cas is the handy stage manager. When the girl playing Juliet is out sick, the director has Cas fill in for her. 
And yes, I know, ‘the play’s the thing’ is not from Romeo and Juliet, but it was a good title.

Shakes-queer: A Comedy [T, 5,500 word count] (reading Shakespeare in high school English class)

“I’ve never talked to you before but the teacher just used us as an example for a scenario where we are married” AU.
(Conveniently, a comedy usually ends in marriage.)

You’re the one that I want [M, 8,900 word count] (Grease, high school, actor!dean, stage hand!cas)

High School Theatre AU. Lawrence high is putting on Grease for the spring musical, and Castiel Novak is the stage manager for the production. He’s always had a thing for Greasers (John Travolta did things to him. He couldn’t help it.) and he’s DEFINITELY always had a thing for Dean. Put the two together by casting Dean as Danny? Cas was pretty sure this whole ordeal was going to kill him.

You’re Timeless to Me [T, 10,600 word count] (Hairspray, actor!cas, ace!cas, stage hand!dean)

Dean’s halfway through reading the script when he realizes that Cas is gonna have to kiss someone. 
Which, really, he should have seen coming. It’s Hairspray, after all, and shy, quiet Castiel is playing Link Larkin. 
Charming, hot, womanizer Link Larkin. 
Dean’s screwed.

I accidentally deleted this request! Much apologies but anyway, I am splitting it into two parts as I went slightly overboard ^^; I really loved writing this request and I had trouble thinking of the fairy tales but it was so much fun! I changed some of the endings cause I like romantic endings ok. (’:

P.S. Name of the fairy tale is placed at the top of the story so if you don’t know the story, you can check it out!

Haha, thanks dear you are so sweet. (; I’m never too busy to reply you and it’s never trouble! ^^ I hope you enjoy this! <3

Generation of Miracles


Akashi sat on his horse, desperately searching each house for the one girl who had managed to capture his heart and the only girl who the glass slipper belongs to. He did not despair despite all the setbacks set in his way and only thought that he would definitely find you for he is absolute.

“Your majesty, we have reached the last house!” His Grand Duke shouted.

The mansion’s door immediately opened and a middle aged woman curtsied.

“Hello, your majesty. I am Lady Tremaine.”

“Greetings, Lady Tremaine. I heard that you have two daughters. Where are they? I would like to meet them,” he simply stated, demounting from his horse in a graceful manner.

His footman held the gold studded box containing the glass slipper and followed His Majesty into the house.

“These are Anastasia and Drizella,” Lady Tremaine introduced as the two simpering girls dropped into a curtsy, hiding their giggles behind feminine handkerchiefs.

The Grand Duke immediately sunk into a kneel and the two girls settled into chairs, ready to try the glass slipper. Anastasia was the first to try and alas! Her feet was too long at the front. However, she held on to the Grand Duke’s head, trying to force her leg in with utmost force.

“Ah! Let go! Let go!” The Grand Duke cried out in agony and after much prying, Anastasia admitted that her foot could not fit the glass slipper.

“My turn!” Drizella crowed and she held out her foot like a trophy as the Grand Duke delicately placed in onto her feet.

Alas! Her feet was too wide this time and could barely even squeeze into the glass slipper, much less fit. Drizella immediately frowned and tried to stomp her feet into it, causing the Grand Duke to panic.

“Ah! Please do not…” Before he could finish his sentence, Akashi cut in smoothly.

“I am sorry, Ms Drizella. It seems that the glass slipper does not fit. Will you mind to return it to the Grand Duke?”

Shamefaced, Drizella huffed and pushed it rather roughly at the Grand Duke, who clumsily caught it with a horrified expression.

“It seems that she is not here,” Grand Duke whispered and Akashi nodded.

“I apologise in intruding into your abode at such a timing. Please have a good day,” Akashi greeted with a smile.

He made a move to leave but before he could, a clear voice reached his ears.

“A dream is a wish your heart makes

When you are fast asleep.

In dreams you lose your heartaches

Whatever you wish for, you keep.”

He turned back to Lady Tremaine and pierced her with a stare so chilling with his heterochromatic eyes.

“Why, Lady Tremaine, I believe that it is a lady’s voice I hear. Is there someone else in this house?”

Lady Tremaine immediately turned pale with fear.

“I… There is another girl but she is merely a maid and of no consequences.”

“I do not care. Bring her down now to see me,” he commanded.

Lady Tremaine immediately dropped into a bow and went to fetch you. A black expression adorned her face as she unlocked your door. You stood up, stunned at the sudden intrusion.

“You better not…” She started to hiss when the Grand Duke’s voice sounded from behind her.

“Better not what? Hello, my lady. Please follow me down. Your Majesty wishes to meet you,” he extended a hand to you.

You tottered forward, wide eyed with wonder, and took it. He smiled gently, tucking it into the crook of his arm before pulling you down the stairs to meet the prince. The prince you left behind that very magical night when the clock struck 12.

Akashi’s eyes lit up in wonder as he caught sight of you and a beautific smile lit up his face.

“Hello and what might your name be?” he asked, reaching out for your hand.

You let go of the Grand Duke and took it, gently smiling at his demeanor.

“I am (f/n, l/n).”

“Okay, Lady (l/n), would you like to try this glass slipper? I believe that it may be yours,” he states as his footman produced the very glass shoe you lost on the steps a few nights back.

You gave a helpless giggle and nodded, settling down into the chair as Akashi himself helped you to wear the glass slipper. It fit perfectly, slipping snugly onto your foot easily. You looked down at Akashi’s hopeful eyes as he looked up at you.

“Now, my love, would you marry me?”


Romeo and Juliet (Play)

Aomine walked onto the stage, his long cloak billowing behind him. Internally, he was rolling his eyes and wanting to leave but when he laid sight of you lying on top of the box, all such thoughts flew away immediately.

“Oh, Juliet, Juliet,” he said as he drew closer.

He panicked as his mind was a blank and he had forgotten his lines but he still closed in to you. You peeked and opened an eye, wondering why he had stopped talking. His eyes met yours in a fit of horror and you almost laughed when you realized what had happened.

“Oh, Juliet. I…” his sentence trailed off before he took in a deep breath.

“Oh, fuck this. Juliet, you shall be mine,” he cursed and drew you up into his arms.

The crowd gasped at his coarse words before he pulled your head to his and kissed you fully on the lips. Your eyes widened at the kiss and you unwillingly kissed him back, almost shaking your head at his ruining of the show. You could almost imagine the director throwing a hissy fit. However, not before long, the entire theatre was filled with applause. Everyone cheered you on and a chant soon started.

Aomine pulled back for a moment and rested his forehead against yours before ducking down to give you one last gentle kiss.

“Juliet, oh Juliet, how I love you so thus with a kiss, I die,” he grinned.

Well, at least he remembered his last line.


(The Little Mermaid)–> Ending is changed!

Just kill him and you will gain your voice and tail back.

The evil instruction the sea witch gave you resounded in your mind and your hands trembled as you held the knife in your arms. It was hurting you physically to even think of killing Kuroko. His pale blue hair shone in the moonlight as he slept peacefully, not knowing of the danger that was you standing right next to him. Tears spilled down your face as you contemplated the thought of killing him. Before you could even move, you heard a groan from him as his eyes fluttered open.

“(f/n)-chan?” his sleepy voice reached your ears.

When he noticed you standing there with a knife and tears down your face, his first reaction was not of fear but of worry.

“What is wrong? Did you hurt yourself?” he asked frantically, rushing to inspect you to make sure that you are not injured.

You took in deep breaths while sobbing, the pain in your chest increasing as you registered his worry for you. You shook your head and pointed at your mouth, wanting him to see what you are saying. In your heart, you have already abandoned the idea of even killing him and was resigned to your fate or giving in to the sea witch.

I. Love. You.

His eyes widened as he understood the words and before you could turn away in misery, his hands caught yours and whirled you into his embrace.

“I never loved her anyway. The one I loved was you but I never thought that you could ever love me back,” he muttered before crashing his lips to yours.

You gasped as you kissed him back slowly, almost crying out in relief at his words. When he pulled back, you giggled and gasped again. Your voice is back!

“(f/n)-chan, did you just…?” He probed, an awestruck look on his face.

“Yes, yes, I love you!” You shouted before throwing yourself into his embrace, resolving to tell him the rest of the story at a later date.

Imagine when the teacher’s telling the names of the ones who are gonna play the protagonists in the romance-related stage play (example: Romeo and Juliet). And it turns out to be both Person A and Person B. This obviously surprises them, causing them to quickly look at eachother, with probably full-red cheeks. (Bonus point if it was actually due to the cause of their mutual friend, forging the votes around, to get them to be together.)
