there’s an entire musical number based on mishearing a word (”I said ENGLAND!”)
Christian Borle plays basically every ensemble character
“My name is Lancelot. I’m big and strong and hot” *taps butt with shovel*
“Become a knight and you’ll go bald!” “Become a knight and you’ll go bald!” “In suspenders and a bra!” “In suspenders and…. a bra..???…”
“I saw a lady in a lake-” “dead?”
EXCAILBUR!! ahhhhh AHHHHHH!!!! *music stops*
“Please reveal to this Doubting Thomas-” “Dennis.”
Sarah fucking Ramirez
“The Song That Goes Like This” being a perfect parody of just about every musical ever made
The absolutely fucking ridiculous expressions on Christopher Sieber’s and Sarah Ramirez’s faces
“Now we’re into E! … that’s awfully high for me.” “Everyone can see, we should have stayed in D.”
“For this is the song that is too loooooooong!” *yells at orchestra director* JESUS CHRIST, GOD DAMNIT
Sir Not Appearing In This Show(Don Quixote: “Oh sorry”)
“Why do they call it the middle ages when nothing yet comes after it?”
“What happens in Camelot, stays in Camelot.”
“Knights of the Round Table” keeping the silliness from the film intact
Patsy clapping the coconuts together because Arthur can’t tap dance
Lady of the Lake being a Vegas lounge singer and she pulls out a ridiculous microphone
“We’re knights of the round table, round table, round table!” (point to roulette table to make sure the audience gets its) “round table, round table, round table!”
The knights trying to spell out “Camelot” and spelling “Cameltoe” instead
John Cleese cameo
The lack of a fourth wall (”These people don’t have all night!”)
“The quail!” “No, grail. The vessel used at the Last Supper.” “They had a bot at the Last Supper?”
“God the Almighty and All Knowing has misplaced a cup?”
“We must look within ourselves.” “SOMEBODY’S SWALLOWED IT!”
“No body’s swallowed it. It’s a symbol.” *symbol crash**glares at orchestra*
“Find Your Grail” actually being a banger and a damn inspirational song all at once
The Lady of the Lake going all Mariah Carey on “Find Your Grail”
The Lady of the Lake holding a grail and standing inside a larger hand holding a grail
the two knights wrapped up in the background scenery and spinning around to make the the canvas move and change scenes
Galahad doing a clog dance when it’s the Alps
The “Scooby stack” when the French knights stick their heads out the door to investigate the giant rabbit
*French taunter speaks French* Other French taunter: … what?
The French people including a mime and Eponine
The French taunting being much more taunting when in song form
"Feche la can can dancers!” *screaming*
The musical keeping up with the double casting from the movie and certain knights are just inexplicably gone for some scenes
“Have a drink and a pee, we’ll be back for act threeeee!” “Two sir.” “Twooooo!”
“Dark and very expensive forest” *cha-ching sound effect”
Because of course “Always Look On The Brightside” is a tap number
Patsy being King Arthur’s sidekick and wanting to cheer him up
The Knights Who Say Ni joining in for a little kick line
Robin’s Minstrel (also played by Christian Borle)
“Arms for the poor! Arms for the poor!”
The mechanics of the Black Knight suit so he can have all his limbs cut off onstage
“You must put on a musical!” Sir Robin: YES! *minstrel band jump into place*
But not an Andrew Lloyed Webber!
David. Hyde. Pierce.
A 10 minute long musical number making as many Jewish jokes and references as possible
THE FUCKING BOTTLE DANCE USING HOLY GRAILS
“Hey!” *points to a bale of hay*
(honestly the use of visual puns in this deserved a Tony of its own)
The pure saltiness of “What Ever Happened to My Part”
The plot point of Lancelot being gay comes from the movie where Lancelot “rescues” Galahad from the girls in Castle Anthrax and Galahad just goes “bet you’re gay” and that’s what led to this whole plot point and a massive dance number that ends with Christian Borle in a fruit hat
(seriously tho we have all these fandoms who insist that their characters are gay (cough dear evan hansen cough) but it isn’t cannon when Lancelot is right here, there’s a whole dance number about it)
“How are we going to get to Broadway? It’s 1000 years in the future in a country that hasn’t been discovered.”
“I”m all alone. There’s no one here beside me,” Patsy walks up like wtf
“Sure, I’ve been offstage forfar too long”
“Actually I’m Jewish on my mother’s side.” “Why didn’t you say?” “It’s not the sort of thing you say to a heavily armed Christian”
THE KNIGHTS USING THE COCONUTS AS FREAKING CASTANETAS AND DANCING TO “AMERICA” FROM WEST WIDE STORY
Sir Robin shitting his pants and excusing himself aka the complete lack of trying to hide the fact that Sir Robin also plays Brother Maynard
the overall hilarious “low-budget” special effects, like when the ensemble knight’s head gets cut off by the rabbit
“No, skip a bit” *Brother Maynard skips* (again the visual puns)
The rabbit puppeteer being revealed and running offstage
“Oh Lord, we’re a bit stuck with the clue things. Would you give us a hand?” (literal hand of God comes down)
Lancelot in a flower crown
“Just think Herbert, in a 1000 years time, this will still be controversial”
“And I too have found my grail!” “WHAT’S THAT?” “Musical theatre!”
Since the Angara are pretty open in terms of emotions I can imagine how perplexed they would be over how humans would use flowers to convey hidden meanings to their lovers/family/enemies.
Jaal would ask who decided what meant what, when it started, and why ‘tip toe’ around your affections for another? He’d spend an eternity figuring out the various kinds of flowers and their meanings, somehow roping Vetra into snagging a few flowers brought over from the milky way. Secretly whenever Ryder has an awful stressful day and she walks into her room- tons of flowers nestled neatly into little vases (blame Lexi who thought it best if they were in vases to keep them alive a little longer) all over her desk and nightstand. Some are known to her. Red roses: passionate love, Asters: contentment, Yellow Tulips: Hopelessly in love.
And then there are the odd ones. Flowers and plants unknown to even humans. Vivid in color and alien in nature similar to the Angara. When she sees Jaal next she asks him about the strange flowers in her room. Warmly Jaal is all too eager to tell her about them, about how each one represents a deeper part of oneself- each petal signaling a year of one’s life in motion. The pain, the hope, the devotion, the courage, youth, stubbornness, and pure joy she brings to him. He then explains to her his people don’t have meanings for each flower like humans do but those flowers- vivid blues and pale white, those called to him and in turn reminded him of her. And the longer he looked at each petal, each speckle and vein running through them, he could see everything he loved about her in them.
So I’ve been thinking more about Scott and Sara and their relationships with their parents, especially after getting so many great responses to this post.
I’m thinking now that Scott might be a problem child? In your first convo with Lexi on the tempest, if you pick the casual option when she tells you about Harry, if you’re Sara, you say something like “He’ll regret that, Scott’s a handful”, and if you’re Scott you say something like “He knows Sara’s the good one”.
one week before hyperion reaches habitat 7, the pathfinder team is brought out of cryogenic stasis. their first obstacle: shouldering the weight of what they’ve left behind.
scott ryder/liam kosta. 5886 words, sfw, falling in love over improper use of the tempest group chat. written for fun 15 days before andromeda’s launch so everything is Probably Very Wrong
DISCLAIMER: this fic is not based explicitly on the andromeda gameplay that’s been revealed so far, but there are still a few canon bits hidden here and there. if you don’t want to read spoilers then please don’t read.
The first thing Liam
Kosta thinks after six-hundred years of cryogenic stasis is: Am I awake?
And then, when it’s
apparent that he is: We made it, right? Did we make it?
And after that he
isn’t thinking much of anything but thank God, thank God– are the others–?
Oh my God, thank God, because no amount of experience in the field could
really prepare anybody for something like this, and they’d known that going in.
@scientistsalarian asked #4. “Shut up and kiss me” for Sara/Vetra from this ask list. - 10/10 ask list if anyone wants to check it out and reblog it.
Soft classical music that Sid had recommended to her played in the background of the room and candles, real candles that she’d managed to get from some obscure store on Kadara, stood lit on the table, casting a soft glow over the plates of food, some napkins and cutlery that were laid out almost professionally on the top of the table.
Vetra had refrained from cooking this time. After what had happened the last time she’d tried to, she figured it best she brought in a professional. And by professional she meant someone who actually knew about and was able to eat levo food. Lucky for her, Drack owed her a favour and was also the best cook on the ship.
The pyjak had been wrestled from the room, Sara’s rodent had been placed in the kitchen and Cora had authorised SAM’s logs to be turned off so that the two of them would actually be alone and have peace for once.
Vetra wasn’t even wearing the armour she practically lived in, swapping it instead for one of the two casual outfits she had on the ship - the less formal of the two. The two of them had had such a trying time recently – from death panics and injuries to betrayals and traps - that they just really needed a moment of peace before running back into the firefight.
What kind of Sara will you play as? Also, I love your Mass Effect pieces, looking forward to seeing what you think up next! :D
Thanks for asking, Crimsonn87:)! Unlike my tired, old soldier Shepherd who sacrificed everything to keep the galaxy just before the fall, I want my Sara to be bright, passionate and playful:)! My Shepard would be the same If she didn’t needa go through the war, tho. And I‘m looking forward to sharing all beautiful meme, thoughts and arts related to MASS EFFECT again with our fandom, too!! Rejoice!!!!
@anoasisinawasteland‘s fic request “if you could do anything about
Team Legends - being domestic/arguing on the ship… - going on a vacation and
wrecking havoc, being the adorable, nerdy fuck ups. Time Mum and Dad being
disappointed but also joining in on the fun. - Gideon’s pov over the team. Like
a day in the life of Gideon and how she sees and reacts to the team” (LoT
i’m so sorry it took so long ! i’ve been swamped with work and stuff and i was hesitating between writing this and a gideon’s pov fic. - the latter will definitely happen at some point, because I absolutely love the idea.
hopefully you’ll like it!
“This is a bad idea.”
Jax shared an eye roll with Sara, both groaning
loudly. From where he was leaning against Rip’s office doorframe, Ray frowned,
miffed, while Nate pouted at his feet, his arms crossed in petulance. Amaya
threw them a look before turning to Mick, the latter responding to her cocked
eyebrow with a low grumble. Martin, unlike the others, didn’t seem undeterred
nor peeved by the Time Master’s constant pessimism.
“Have a bit of faith, Captain,” Martin insisted, his
grin hopeful. Rip responded by cocking an eyebrow, his expression unmoved, “We
arse all responsible adults, aren’t we?”
“I beg to differ,” Rip muttered, gaze darting from one
person to the other.
Sara Bareilles to many is known as singer who belts out hits like “Love Song” and “Brave”. Sara’s music library is wide and diverse, providing plenty of opportunity to explore different vocal styling. This musical diversity allowed for Sara to become quite versatile as a vocalist and her skill, although underrated, is quite apparent.
