Can you imagine Hide and Seek at Hogwarts? Like, the entire castle is full of endless nooks and crannies, all sorts of places no one knows about. You could hide for hours. The stairs move during games, picking sides, as the castle chooses its favorites. The kitchens flood with a steady stream of both hiders and seekers, although no one ever seems to settle in the house elves’ domain. Common rooms and dormitories are off limits, because it’s an inter-house competition.
Gryffindors would end up in corridors rumored to be dangerous, leaving the games victorious, with new stories about the boggart trapped in the unused classroom next to Professor Sinistra’s supply closet.
Hufflepuffs would make friends with the castle, getting the stairs on their side, so the classrooms they choose to hunker down in for the afternoon become unreachable.
Ravenclaws using tracking spells to find their friends first.
Slytherins being in charge of the rule book, keeping score and writing lots of loopholes to use later, winning on hour limits and arbitrary castle bounds.

From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - By the Book. Trying something different here, bundling a few cues together when they are part of a large sequence in the episode. (There’s also this huge thing I just finished for a later episode that I hope to post in one big chunk later.)
The fight was fun because I got to switch back and forth between Star’s themes and Ludo’s themes, while also using a bunch of Ludo’s new prepared-piano instrumentation.
Then it all hits the fan, and Star is in trouble, Ludo finally has the upper hand, and it looks like Glossaryck is smushed, and then the book gets all mobile, and it gets epic.
So let me start off by saying that as of right now I am not sure of the identity of Jason’s killer. But I hope this theory clears the air a little bit regarding Polly and Jason.
As everyone knows Jason made a move on Polly because of the playbook.
But lower down the playbook, we see that things began to change with Polly and Jason.
First we see that it says: “Still working Polly (9) 2x week score!”.
But then further down the book we see (barely) that it states: “Polly… again bro? (-2) for feelings”. Which means that Jason was slowly developing feelings for Polly further than his score book. This starts to raise questions as we see (again bro?). Obviously his teammates just want more score and Jason not getting actually involved with Polly.
Also, another thing that has to be noted is that Polly is shy.
But isn’t this totally contradictory to what Alice said? We clearly see that she wants Betty to stay as innocent as possible and not turn into Polly. Because as she said “she was a shining star and Jason ruined her”.
That could of course mean the breakdown, but what if this was the least thing that happened to Polly. I mean yeah it could just be about ONLY that and the fact that she went from a good girl to a bad girl but hear me out.
As we know she and Jason had a big fight during the summer and from what the girls saw on the playbook, it probably meant that Jason was with Polly for the score and that was what the fight was about.
But… Betty herself said this:
So, what if after the fight Polly; betrayed by the man who was the father of her baby turned to her mother who did not approve of the relationship from starters as she always stated, and she was ultimately the person who led to her breakdown.
We all see that all Alice wants was to keep her family’s reputation at ALL COSTS and same thing could be said for the Blossoms. So what would it mean for the two most powerful families in Riverdale for a teen pregnancy scandal to come out?
Both families, not wanting that HID the pregnancy from Jason, Cheryl and Betty, as well as the rest of Riverdale, then payed people off and send Polly away to a group home so she could get better and then give birth. And they would both agree that once she gave birth the baby would be given away and then she would be back as new, keeping both families on top.
Of course, that benefited the Blossoms the most and Alice didn’t approve in the beginning that is why she is so bitter and to this day blames the family for ruining her daughter’s life.
So, that’s when things get complicated.
We know that Jason wanted to leave Riverdale ONCE AND FOR ALL, and he wanted his parents to not find him.
What if he had found out about Polly and her pregnancy and he planned on finding her? And he felt betrayed by his parents and that’s why he wanted to go away; also knowing that neither them nor Alice would let him find Polly if he told them that.
This is why he staged the accident and let Cheryl in the dark so he would be sure to run away and no one would know what his true intentions were.
And we also know that Cheryl loved Jason so much and wanted to protect him that she would lie for him without even knowing why he wanted to run away.
I also want to point out that Polly returns in upcoming episodes of this season and she seems to be a reformed-bad girl and looks 100% like the good girl she once was.
To conclude, i have no idea if this theory makes sense or not, or if any other person has posted it already, but it has been in my drafts since the first mention of Polly and Jason and the proof pile keeps getting bigger.
Me at 3 am:
Why did Next to normal lose the tony for best musical it is one of the best theater pieces of this century. It deals with topics that had never been put on a Broadway stage before and while the performances of everyone in the original cast are outstanding, Alice Ripley's is breathtaking and hands down the best in her carreer. The symbolism in both the score and the book can inspire so many discussions and even after studying it for months you probably won't have got every detail. It is overall a musical masterpiece at the level of Sondheim and there is a reason it won the Pulitzer, and should have won the tony awards without question.
HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR! I’m back with more sheet music. Here’s ‘It’s Quiet Uptown’. I am quite pleased with it even though it was probably the most complicated song since ‘Farmer Refuted’. ‘You’ll Be Back’ will be easier, I hope. Anyway! Two Hamilton sheets out this weekend! WOOH! This project is just steam rolling along.
If you love it make sure to link other people back here so they can find the sheets and learn to play it too AND if you record it please message me so I can listen and share with everyone!
I’m going to continue writing sheet music until @linmanuel releases a score book! Next up is ‘You’ll Be Back’!
UPDATE: Thank you @canadian-combeferre for pointing out the timing error at the beginning! It looks so much cleaner now and the pace is way better! As I always say, I get by with a little help from my friends! 🎶
