Human AU Wedding headcanon:

Okay, so Dawn becomes a planner-zilla for Bog and Marianne’s wedding.  They don’t mind though, they just wanna get married.  But Dawn wants everything to be absolutely perfect, down to the very last detail.  She even insists that Marianne wear white, despite neither the bride nor the groom being able to keep a straight face about it.  Horndogs.  XD

Anyway, either as a joke during the rehearsal or, dare I say it, for real during the actual ceremony, Marianne switches the music so she comes walking down the aisle to the “Imperial March” from Star Wars while sporting a Stormtrooper helmet.  By the time she reaches the altar, Bog has already put on his Darth Vader helmet. 

And then we hear Dawn screaming from somewhere:


2017 Tony Awards

I’m very emotional over this years Tony Awards. Great Comet was so inventive and stunning. I can’t believe out of 12
Nominations Great Comet received 2. Only 2. Dave Malloy deserved at least Best Score or Best Orchestrations. The Great Comet music expressed over six different genres of different types of music many different times signatures through all that music. I’m just baffled at the fact that it did not win best musical, best orchestrations, and best score. It pushed the boundaries of what musical theater can do and what it can be! The Great Comet inspired so many people this season that’s why it was nominated for 12 Tony Awards. I believe the American theater wing made the choice of choosing Dear Evan Hansen due to the fact of the type of publicity and money making of it with a big name like Ben Platt. Yes I’ve listened to DEH, but it’s Orchestrations aren’t outstanding. It is just a campy pop musical nowhere near Dave Malloy’s genius writing. I feel that with that show people felt it was a safe choice for the tony awards it didn’t break boundaries and I didn’t push boundaries so it was safe and it was a good choice for them to go with but on the other hand it wasn’t that creative it didn’t push boundaries and it hardly dived into the themes of suicide. That’s why I am so baffled by this and it kills me with a heavy heart to say that Great Comet didn’t win majority of their nominations. Every nomination that the great comet got they highly deserved the award in that category I understand with the big-name like Bette Midler Hello Dolly rose to fame and Bette Midler and Gavin Creel won. Gavin is a beautiful actor with a beautiful voice but I do feel that Lucas truly shined this year with his nominated performance. When best featured actor in a musical was announced I honestly did cry because I felt Lucas deserved it very much. On top of that Come From Away and Falsettos deserved more recognition for having all star casts and telling beautiful heart wrenching stories hell, I can’t get through Come From Away without getting goosebumps and tearing up. Overall The 2017 Tony awards were not the best and I think it’s definitely a step back in musical theater. Hamilton last year was a groundbreaking step forward colored actors nominated and won and represented this year I feel like We took a step back in the wrong direction.

One Last Piggyback

One Last Piggyback

From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Camping Trip. This episode is like a top 5 episode for me so far. Maybe top 3. Father/child storylines always kill me and this one is elegantly told, the jokes are razor sharp, and Alan Tudyk’s voice work is beyond incredible here. “Don’t be weird, Marco” and “llama pajama” deserve Annies all on their own. Between this episode and Ludo in the Wild, his work this season is blowing my mind.

This melody is the “King Butterfly Theme” and will be coming back in various forms later this season. Burn it into your brains. We’re doing this with a bunch of recurring characters. Next week especially.

Hunting headcanon...

Whenever Marianne goes on a hunt with the goblins, she and Bog always end up arguing over which one of them took the kill-shot.  And the goblins are just standing in the background like: 

“…Um, how long are they gonna keep this up?  The meat’s gonna spoil.  Can’t they flirt in private?  You say something.  No, you!  No, YOU!…”

L.A Kings vs Maple Leafs

Honestly it’s really short and not good but I’m in hospital and it’s really hard to write here but I’m posting this just to show I’m still here.


Enjoy x

“I’m so excited for today’s game!” Shawn talks with his friends while slightly brushing his hands onto mine. “Yeah man, the Maple Leafs will destroy the LA kings” I snickered before covering my mouth with both of my hands. “You okay love?” Shawn looks weirdly at me. I just nod my head. So Shawn bought the hockey game tickets but he never really asked which team do I support. Yes. The L.A kings. I thought that I would make a surprise for Shawn when I would come out wearing my merchandise. Can’t wait to see his face.


“Babe come out! We’re going to be late!” I took a deep breath before coming downstairs. “Babe what took…what are you wearing?” he asks looking questionable at me. “Obviously, a merchandise” I roll my eyes. “Yeah but that’s the L.A kings, not Maple Leafs” “You never asked me what team I was rooting for” I smirk pecking his lips. Boy it’s going to be a fun night.


“You’re going down” he smirked waiting for the game to start.

“Sure” I mocked him rolling my eyes.

“Just saying”


I jump happily when the L.A Kings score again. I look at no so happy looking Shawn. “What happened babe? Cat got your tongue?” I tease. “I can’t believe this is happening right now” I sit down and lay my head on his neck. “Don’t be so grumpy” I smile kissing him.

“We won!” I keep yelling while clearing the stands. “Yeah yeah” Shawn rolls his eyes and drags me towards the exit.


“The L.A Kings won!” my grandpa yells into the phone. I see my whole family sitting on the sofa at his house. “I know! Shawn is so pissed” I start laughing remembering his face.


I think as a storyteller I’ve tried to do that a lot in our premieres and finales. We all have always loved doing that on the show. I definitely watched the pilot several times before I wrote the finale and wanted to make it feel as full circle as possible, even down to the music and working with our composer on the score.

As you looked around the room you couldn’t help but laugh. Absolutely no one would be scared of the Volturi if they could see them like this. 

Aro was practically fan-girling over the new Mario Kart that arrived and Caius was rolling his eyes and looking disdainful although everyone knew that when they checked the top scores tomorrow ‘C-King’ would hold them all. Marcus was playing a great practical joke by hiding the controllers and then pretending to ‘sleep’ on his throne so Aro wouldn’t think it was him. Jane was arguing with Alec over what to watch, romantic comedy or action film and Felix was holding a big bowl of popcorn that he only made to throw bits at Demetri’s head. Demetri was currently trying to spice up his various work outfits a little and was getting pretty close to tackling Felix if the twitch in his jaw was anything to go by. Heidi was lounging around painting her nails and putting her two cents into any of the conversations that interested her. 

Yes, no one would be scared of the Volturi if they could see what they were like in private.

New Release Review: Score: A Film Music Documentary

Jaws. Star Wars. Rocky. Indiana Jones. Psycho. James Bond. Batman. The Omen. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It’s impossible to discuss these landmarks of cinema - among countless others - without mentioning their scores, which continue to resonate to this day. The soundtrack can be seen as the heart of a film, as it possesses the ability to subconsciously elevate or manipulate viewers’ emotions. Score: A Film Music Documentary examines the power that music has in movies.

Virtually every modern name in film scoring provides insight into their process, including: Hans Zimmer (The Dark Knight), Danny Elfman (Batman), Trent Reznor (The Social Network), Junkie XL (Mad Max: Fury Road), Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings), Steve Jablonsky (Transformers), Henry Jackman (Captain America: Civil War), Marco Beltrami (Scream), Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead), and Tyler Bates (Guardians of the Galaxy), to name a few. Various experts - from filmmaker James Cameron to historians to studio musicians - are also interviewed.
