Alright fandom, I’m about to bring up a topic that has pissed me off for way too long. Way back to one of my favourite arcs, Book of Circus.

A topic that has not only been something personal to me, but another reason that Sebastian Michaelis is one of the most disgusting characters and if SebaCiel was real, it’d be indeed a heavily toxic relationship. Also, a counter argument to everyone that brings this up as a point to hate Our!Ciel.

Today, I’m going to discuss my heavy belief and theory, that during this scene, Ciel was forced into a PTSD attack.

Look at the following three pictures.

PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) -  a condition of persistent mental and emotional stress occurring as a result of injury or severe psychological shock, typically involving disturbance of sleep and constant vivid recall of the experience, with dulled responses to others and to the outside world.

With this in mind, PTSD has to be triggered by something, not just when Ciel walks in and sees the exact duplicate of a room he was trapped in for a month. These three photos are so important because it shows exactly how this connected to that day. The doctor representing the cultists, Ciel is now forced to remember all those terrible memories, his traumatic memories scratching the surface. How heavily these two scenes correlate is so important.

Do you understand what I am trying to tell you?

At this exact moment in time, we lost Ciel, he was gone and reliving everything. The outside world completely falling apart to him, having no idea what happened anymore after this moment.

Now, showing the actual attack.

‘Stop it’.

‘Stop it’.

‘Someone’.

What do you assume from the black text boxes? To me, this appears to be happening in Ciel’s mind, he is now reliving this all over again until the end of the arc. I will go more in depth in that later.

Right now, he is calling out to someone right now, he wants someone to get him out of this hell hole, just like he did that day.

My point is, and I can’t stress this enough, he believes he is back there in the cage, and he wants out. He is gonna do everything to get out.

To make more sense of this before moving on to my next point of the actual PTSD attack, here are the symptoms of an attack.

Behavioral: agitation, irritability, hostility, hypervigilance, self-destructive behavior, or social isolation.

Psychological: flashback, fear, severe anxiety, or mistrust.

Mood: loss of interest or pleasure in activities, guilt, or loneliness.

Sleep: insomnia or nightmares.

Also common: emotional detachment or unwanted thoughts.

Now, I have put in bold the ones Ciel is suffering from AND signs that he has shown previous to this. Guilt and nightmares are the biggest examples of that.

Right now, he is having extreme emotional detachment and unwanted thoughts, with flashbacks fueling fear and severe anxiety. He is suffering much more than what he appears to be.

Now, here is my second point to this that involves Sebastian:

For anyone that wants to argue that Sebastian isn’t as bad, or he sincerely cares for Ciel. I’m about to throw those words back in your face.

Sebastian Michaelis is a demon, he does not give a single fuck about our!Ciel, sorry if I have to be the one to tell you this, but he doesn’t and this is the first example I’d give anybody to show them.

‘Young master, is there something you’re afraid of?’

‘You’re outside of the cage right now, my Lord.’

‘Call my name.’

Those sentences, are the biggest forms of manipulation I’ve ever seen coming from this demon. He didn’t break Ciel out of the PTSD attack, I’ve seen other people saying that, but that is far from the truth. I will show that through the next set of pictures. 

Right now, I want to explain what I believe to be Sebastian’s intentions. This goes if he understood what was happening or not. I start to believe more and more that he did, because focus on the look on Sebastian’s face. He is smirking, he seems more than pleased by the situation because he gains from it. He tells him to call his name, say it, because Ciel believes he is in the cage and has just called the demon to come and save him. Sebastian, being aware he wants to be saved, he wanted help, used him, his asthma and PTSD attack, and he did it to make not only their contract stronger but to make Ciel’s soul better.

Revenge, sorrow, pain, all these things that make Ciel’s soul the best that it is, the want to be stronger than his enemies, Sebastian knows this.

Sebastian used this for his own agenda, he didn’t do it because he wanted to help Ciel find himself, because he didn’t. All that demon wanted was to help himself with his meal, that’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.

When Ciel then acts out, screaming to ‘kill these guys’, you think he means the doctor and Joker right?

I’m afraid, far from it, saying Ciel is mixing his reality with the past, he believes he is telling Sebastian to kill the same people he already killed three years ago. He does not remember the reality before him. What he is seeing, is so much different than to what you and I were seeing.

The most important point in this post is:

Ciel had no idea who he was killing, he thought he was in the cage, he didn’t care who died, he wanted the cultists stopped.

CIEL WAS NOT AWARE HE WAS KILLING THOSE CHILDREN.

Another message (SebaCiel):

I don’t care what you ship, I really don’t.

However, if you look at this scene and sexualize it, I don’t mean ironically (joking is fine), I mean you truly look at this and think this is a great example of SebaCiel, I’m sorry, but you piss me off and quite frankly I feel you are not only spiting in Ciel’s face, but the people who suffer from PTSD.

Have you ever seen someone have a PTSD attack? It’s terrifying, it is one of the hardest things to deal with, pulling someone out of those memories and making them feel safe again-. It is difficult, and I’ll say it once more.

No, Ciel calling Sebastian’s name, did not break him out of his trance.

To romanticize and sexualize PTSD and his asthma attack is disgusting, and a pathetic way of filling your yaoi quota.

Off of that rant, I’m gonna move on to the last bit of this.

Burning the children.

As you can see, Ciel just denied the Queen’s orders.

Ciel just denied the Queen’s orders.

He’s never done that before in his entire career, isn’t that off to you?

Of course it is, because he in his mind doesn’t work for her yet, what Sebastian says to him is not processing to him. Sebastian isn’t aware of this more than likely, but I promise you nothing anybody is saying is entering Ciel’s ears and he is understanding it unless it relates to that day. When he says to burn down the place, he believes he is getting rid of the place that caused him aching pain and suffering for an entire month. Not just for him but his beloved brother.

Reliving these memories, Ciel wanted nothing more than it to go away.

Let me say again, Sebastian asking if he was ‘sure’ wouldn’t have helped at all. To open your mind a bit, here are the very few ways to help PTSD. Most of the time the person needs to take medication and probably go to sleep.

Therapies:

Cognitive behavioral therapy - A talk therapy focused on modifying negative thoughts, behaviors, and emotional responses associated with psychological distress.

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing - Psychological treatment that reduces the stress of traumatic events through eye movements.

Exposure and response prevention - A talk therapy based on exposing feared or traumatic experiences within a safe setting in order to help reduce any associated psychological distress.

Medications:

Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) - Eases symptoms of depressed mood and anxiety.

Now, these are modern treatments, which are very few to begin with.

You know what they had back then? Nothing. No, that is not a joke, PTSD was not recognized until 1980. So needless to say, Ciel was fucked, and the only and best way Sebastian could’ve helped would’ve been knocking him out after killing the threats. Not even quite sure if Ciel would’ve been okay after waking, or if he’d even remember what happened, which would’ve been best because now he has the guilt of killing all these children for the rest of his life.

To all the people that use this heavily as a point for disliking Ciel:

I’d just like to say, you don’t have to like Ciel, but don’t you EVER come at me with this shit and telling me how it’s his fault. He didn’t want to do that, if Ciel had been in his right mind and knew what he was doing, he would’ve never made the move he did.

He thought he was killing the cultists all over again.

After all the comments, discussion and controversy with this that I’ve seen, from fulfilling fangirl’s yaoi dreams to completely blaming Ciel for a serious mental disorder, I have to say-

The conversation around this entire situation in Book of Circus inside this fandom, is beyond disgusting to me.

Sorry for my amount of salt in this post, but this topic to me is personal, and I’m tired of it being treated not as seriously as it really is.

This is my theory, my opinions on Ciel’s PTSD, and I don’t believe he should be blamed for something he didn’t ask for.

I apologize for rambling, that’s it.

either way anyway i just want you guys to know that im spiralling a bit right now and im not doing so great and ive fallen into bad habits i thought i left behind so if my blog is negative or miserable or i make concerning posts im really sorry but stuff isnt great right now

if you want to unfollow i completely understand bcos i know some people cant handle negativity when theyre trying to be positive and i respect that 

but just. a heads up

anonymous asked:

If I may ask, what is this "little theory" of yours that you said may be coming true?

(the question comes from my tags on this post

I’m really sorry for the delay, anon! I was going to answer this but then sth happened and I couldn’t concentrate so now here I am:

Well, it’s not a theory per se, more of headcanon maybe ??

I was discussing Kuro with my boyfriend around the time of the filler chapters (aka, the idols) and even though he doesn’t read it, he told me that it was odd for him how our!Ciel wanted to have great power and become an Earl with everything that such a nobility title involves. His reasoning was that if you have the chance Ciel had, you’d wish for more than you ever had, not for the exact same, you know? And so, he thought that maybe Ciel wasn’t actually a Phantomhive, but just a regular kid who came across this opportunity to be a nobleman. 

Now, I was sure that Ciel was indeed a Phantomhive, so I accepted half of his theory because it does make a lot sense! 

So now, with these developments, and considering real!Ciel’s condescending attitude, everything seems to indicate that our!Ciel was ‘’the other one.’’ RCiel was the future earl, he was to marry Elizabeth, he was the strong, healthy and cheerful one, while OCiel was kinda the forgotten one. That’s why that night he made the contract, he asked to have everything that may have been denied to him in the past, and it’s totally understandable. Maybe he just wanted to know how it was to be like his brother, the one to have it all and be appreciated by everyone.

So now I think that moments like this:

or this:

must’ve really hurt our!Ciel, you know?

Hey so I'm just getting into astrology now and idk where to begin! Whenever I look up the astrology tag it just confuses and frustrates me. Are there any tests I should take? Posts I should look at? Blogs I should follow? Thanks so much for you help 😄

sorry for the late reply! 

You should first and foremost get your natal chart calculated if you haven’t already, astro.com is great and astro-charts.com can show you some more insight such as your chart pattern. which aspects you have the most of, etc. 

you should also check out my beginner tag! It’s posts that i think would be helpful to a beginner into astrology 

 some blogs that i recommend would be @airmom, @ninthhousemoon, @astrologyalien, @astrology-addict, @aesthetics-astro, @ascendingvenus, @astrawrlogy, @ayyries, @ayat-the-aquarius, @astrolocherry, @zodiacale, @cutestrology, @starlilium, @dorkycancerian, @airmom, @wizkhalibra (and more) 

nick sequel

on yesterday’s jack savage post kagrs touched on the topic of nick’s focus in the sequel and i’ve actually been thinking about that anyway so here is me talking about it. sorry i’ve been such a chatty cathy lately but i’m quite fond of disney’s zootopia, if you haven’t noticed, and i enjoy saying words relating to it

i’ll be the first to hold up zootropolis as a great buddy movie, but at the same time, there’s no denying that judy’s the protagonist. the focus is tightly on her. she’s in every single scene, with the sole exception of nick’s flashback, which is being narrated directly to her. nick, meanwhile, doesn’t actually show up until 18 minutes into the film.

the film is indisputably judy’s story. it’s her journey, her character arc. so it’d be awesome to switch things around in the sequel. give nick the primary focus, have his character development be front and centre.

don’t for a second take this to mean i want attention away from judy. it needs to be about both of them. and they don’t need to stick as closely to nick, at least physically. if the movie is made better by showing some scenes of judy by herself, then go for it. besides, their partnership should be on full display, because that’s what we’re all dying to see more of.

but partnership is about sharing. nick’s already been the deuteragonist, supporting judy through her story arc. it’d be nice to return the favour, is all.

then, thusly balanced, they can share the spotlight equally in zoopledoop 3

I think Ashley might be more inclined to answer this. 6.12 Quinn's ambiguous death (sorry can't let go) Anyone thats not on board with the Quinnspiracy I'm sorry but I don't get it? How can ppl NOT believe that Q is alive? If Gansa wanted Q dead he'd be DEAD - shot in the head would do it. BC are we meant to believe the Deltas (highly trained warfighters) were very bad shots &/or managed to somehow MISS Q's head & chest? Gansa did that for a reason & the reason is he didnt want to kill Q.

Ashley is super busy today so I’ll take it. You’ve given me a GREAT opportunity to post our laundry list of Quinnspiracy “evidence.” I worked on this with @pinkys143 when we were reaching out to a reporter… and I’m proud of it. It almost convinced me.

  • Carrie didn’t touch him (get a pulse).
  • He had just been given an alternate identity by Dar in the prior episode.
  • He was shot in the shoulders when all season long they had a running line about how the shoulder was the “safe place” to be shot.
  • He “died” last year and lived.
  • The light saved him last year and he walked into the light this year.
  • The whole plot this year was about fake news.
  • Half of season 3 was a big viewer fake out when Carrie and Saul plotted to put her in a psych ward to draw out Javadi.
  • Gansa has used the ruse trope in his other shows to fake-out the audience.
  • They never showed a memorial.
  • There was no cast send off for Rupert or press release from SHO confirming the send off.
  • It’s just bizarre storytelling to torture a character for two years without any redemption. Oh, and a three year love story in which nothing happened.
Just A Lil' Update

Sorry to bother you, lovelies. I’ve just had such a great day not to share.

Today, I had a unilateral breast reduction, to treat a condition called asymmetrical breast hypertrophy.

Surgery went perfectly! It’s my first surgery ever, too. I had no reaction to narcotics, so no vomiting (which I was a bit nervous about, since I have a family history of bad reactions to post surgery)!

I’m already back at my hotel room, so not need to even stay overnight in hospital.

I’m just so grateful everything went smoothly, to be happy and healthy, and that I can finally live my life to its fullest potential!

Sorry for rambling! Sending you dears all the positive energy I’ve been blessed with!💘

anonymous asked:

Hey Emily, so sorry if you've answered this already. I do apologise for the repetition. I'm from Australia and I would love to be able to get a copy of your book. Is ordering still available at this date? Should I wait for the release date? Which website and payment method? So sorry to bombard you with so many questions. Hope you have a great day!

Hi! I’m going to write a post about it tomorrow and include links to where you can pre-order! I was just waiting until it was available on multiple websites so everybody has a choice when it comes to pre-ordering. It is released on the 1st of November but you can certainly pre-order. It’s also available to pre-order on Australian websites and they’ll be included in the post tomorrow.

I’m about to go to bed but check back tomorrow when I make the post about it to see what choices you have to pre-order if that’s what you want to do! Have a great day yourself!

UPDATE: More to come???

Hey so I just wanted to make a post saying thank you guys for apparating in wotl if you did. This event wouldn’t be that great without you. Sorry for taken forever to make this post!! I wanted to wait until I closed the survey on how we did. 

From the what I got as review it seems that everyone wants the event to come back!! Yay :D !!! So this event will happen again!!! On more serious note, it seems a few of you are confuse on somethings about this event/blog (maybe you’re new or never saw some posts from the past).  So here’s to make somethings more clear:

1) Only one person is working on the event/running this blog at this time. I know I say we a lot but I don’t like saying I in posts??? like we’re all in this together???

2) if you want updates for the event, and see posts without having to dig in the tags follow this blog!!! Oh my goodness!! If you want the lowdown on this event you need to follow this blog!!!! Half of this blog is meant to reblog posts so you guys don’t have to dig looking for them in the tags and the other half is to get updates. (I will make a different post on the subject if your posts aren’t showing up in tags)

3) I can’t force artist/fans to make posts or participate in general. If someone doesn’t want to make posts or reblog or like any posts at all, than there’s nothing I can do. 

4) If you want this event to get bigger you need to reblog posts about this event and tell friends about this event. I’m limited by my follower count (which isn’t much), and this event is very much word of mouth. If I had the money and tumblr had a good ad system I would totally buy ads for this event, but I can’t. sorry :(

5) There’s is around 2 to 3 months between the events so far, and I plan to keep it a few months between each event. I don’t spring these events up the day of. There have been a post for each event with the dates and themes circling around during those months before the event. 

6) So far each event’s theme is and has been picked by you guys via poll. The only thing I do is give a list of themes, add any that are in demand, and whatever themes that are picked I put them in an order that makes sense. Such as I put free day on Wednesday because it’s halfway through the week. Last event I put suits and transforming on opposites ends of the week because they’re similar but very different. 

I have decided that the next wotl that I will pick everything. Some of you seem to not get the whole “take this survey to choose themes” and will still get mad at me if two themes are similar. I will also pick the date sinces you guys get mad at that even if it’s part of the survey :/ …I already know when and I have most of the themes picked out. I’ll post the dates and themes soon!! :)

And Finally, I will be looking for an admin to help me with some stuff. I get really stressed with this blog and I think another admin would help. A big reason why I’m looking for a new admin is that it seems from the survey you guys want this blog to not only be about the event but also post/reblog about female character fromt toku in general.  I’ll make a different post about what I’m looking for an admin.

Thank you for reading!!! If you have any comments, questions, or concerns send me an ask or message. I’ll get to them as soon as possible.

could you recommend me some european films to watch? the genre doesn't matter, and neither does the language. thank you <3

OH HEI ANON SORRY I forgot to reply to this and then I remembered now that another anon asked for movie recs ops okay I’ll try to be brief

  • italian: for comedies I love monicelli best (i soliti ignoti and l’armata brancaleone are my faves), fellini’s best is definitely 8 e ½ but you should probably see la dolce vita, leone’s movies are the best westerns (all of them) but corbucci’s the great silence is also a gem of a movie and all the neorealism is good tho my faves are rome open city, germany year zero, umberto D and the bicycle thieves. luchino visconti is your go-to for The Most Refined Director In Italian Cinema virtually all his stuff is great. for newer stuff… I like moretti’s movies but they’re not to everyone’s taste, matteo garrone is a v. good director tho not always to my taste but he might be to others, I loved they call me jeeg/lo chiamavano jeeg robot lately ;_; also ozpetek’s movies are fairly nice among the new stuff, and giuliano montaldo is where you should go for old school political movies - sacco and vanzetti is my fave
  • french: my fave french director is truffaut and I mentioned some movies of his in the post just above this, but I also really love renoir (la grande illusion will forever make me cry and the rules of the game is a gem) and cluzot (the crow is his best), I occasionally like godard as well tho with the nouvelle vague I’m… let’s just say I like truffaut best lol also ROBERT BRESSON GOD I LOVE BRESSON’S MOVIES pickpocket, the trial of jeanne d’arc, au hasard balthazar and the ladies of the Bois de Boulogne are some of my favorite things ;;
  • german: I could be more well-versed with germans but my uber-fave is wim wenders who I realize is kinda not a popular choice but hey I like whatever he makes iDEK. my fave is der himmel uber berlin along with the american friend, but I also loved buena vista social club, faraway so close (EVERYONE HATES IT IDK WHY I LOVED IT) and million dollar hotel (DITTO) and until the end of the world. I’m told fassbinder is excellent but I haven’t seen enough of his good stuff so I can’t say anything BUT out of recent german cinema I watched, the life of others and goodbye, lenin were really good, along with the downfall. however if you’re cool with silent germans, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check out murnau, dreyer, lang and lubitsch and their subsequent american movies - murnau’s are all amazing esp nosferatu and the last laugh, with lang my fave german ones are M and metropolis and lubitsch is just.. everything he touched was gold okay, and same for dreyer (my favorite is vampyr but really a+++ stuff everywhere)
  • if you look here I have recommended a lot of british movies but I’ll leave a friendly reminder to check out my pal ken loach always because he’s the-best-ever, plus branagh if you want good shakespeare adaptations
  • swedish: I only know ingmar bergman fairly decently but BERGMAN IS A FUCKING AMAZING DIRECTOR so… the place of the strawberries, the seventh sigil and… ugh idk the proper english name but like, the virgin’s fountain or something of the kind are good places to start out
  • finnish: same as before, the only finnish director I know halfway decently is aki kaurismaki but he’s also a very amazing director. pls check out le havre, the man without a past and the other side of hope
  • russian: EISENSTEIN GUYS yeah okay I’m always at silent movies but battleship potemkin, strike and october are excellent ways to start out

aaand like my knowledge of spanish/portoguese classics is absolutely shit past luis bunuel but bunuel is an amazing fucking great director so anything of his you wanna watch is amazing. for the british/english language pls check out the other post. 

anyway, my only advice is avoid von trier and his pals because i’ve never seen such pretentious movies in my entire life :P

A Rant Regarding The Great Comet

I am posting this on behalf of the recent news i have been hearing about regarding how Okieriete Onaodowan, aka Oak will be stepping down from his role as Pierre in the broadway Production Natasha, Pierre, and The Great Comet of 1812 to “make room” for Mandy Patinkin to undergo the role in August. I was quite enraged when I learned this, not because I think the producers/casting directors made this decision out of racism, but because no matter the reason it is still extremely unfair for Oak. If you don’t mind, i will provide some reasons to defend my opinion.

HE PUT AN INSANE AMOUNT OF HARD WORK INTO HIS MONTHS OF REHEARSALS AND HE’S ONLY GONNA BE PERFORMING FOR A MONTH AND THEN HE MIGHT NOT BE COMING BACK? WHAT DID HE EVER DO WRONG?!

PLUS, PATINKIN WILL BE JOINING IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS. HE DOESN’T GET NEARLY AS MUCH REHEARSALS AS OAK AND HE WILL BE PERFORMING FOR A LONGER TIME THAN OAK WILL.

MOREOVER, IT IS DOWNRIGHT LUDICROUS TO REPLACE OAK JUST SO THE SHOW CAN MAKE MORE “TICKET SALES” BRUH HE’S FROM HAMILTON IS THAT NOT ENOUGH?! HE WAS THE. LAST. ONE. TO. LEAVE. THE. HAMILTON. ORIGINAL. CAST. HE COULDN’T BE MORE LOYAL TO HIS CAREER.

ADDITIONALLY, OAK IS EXTREMELY TALENTED!! WHY WOULD YOU LET HIS BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND ACTING SKILLS GO TO WASTE? WHO FUCKING CARES IF THE LEAD ACTOR WAS FROM THE PRINCESS BRIDE, TALENT IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN RECOGNITION.

OAK WAS ALSO ORIGINALLY SUPPOSED TO DEBUT TWO WEEKS BEFORE HE ACTUALLY DID. HE WAS SO FOCUSED AND PREPARED FOR HIS ROLE BUT NOW THE NEW PIERRE WENT THROUGH BARELY ANY REHEARSALS COMPARED TO WHAT OAK HAD COMMITTED TO. OAK DESERVES AT LEAST A LITTLE MORE SPOTLIGHT.

ALTHOUGH MANDY PATINKIN HAS A LOT MORE EXPERIENCE, IT IS NOT AT ALL REASONABLE TO TAKE AWAY THE NEW EXPERIENCES THAT OAK COULD HAVE GOTTEN AND SHOULD HAVE DESERVED.

AND FINALLY, LETS APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT OAK WILLINGLY STEPPED DOWN, BECAUSE HE IS SO CONSIDERATE AND DEDICATED TO THE SHOW’S SUCCESS.

(Yes, I’m sure Mandy Patinkin will do great, but nonetheless Oak deserves better. And most articles did state that he will be returning to his role in the fall or winter, but it is still unacceptable.)

That is now all I have to say.

Thank you for reading this, if you did.

Okay so youre like, SO GOOD at writing characters that arent inherently villainous in a villainous fashion. If that makes sense. Basically im in love with your traitornari scenario and ive reread it about 1,000 times. Would it be possible to get something similar but with villain!deku? Like, it doesnt have to be nsfw (altho thatd be great) but ive been itching to read one where the s/o is totally down to betray everyone cause they love him so much?? Sorry if this is a bother,,

asdhadasdasdaswdasdiu;ashd I’ve read this message so so many times now and it made me so happy. Thank you so much for saying that it means a lot. But YES making sweet characters be not so sweet is really fun and I’d love to do the same for Deku. I can’t really guarantee that same level of nsfw so it would probably come out more nsfwish. 

Anyway I love the premise of this so please go ahead and send in the request. Add in a little more detail if you like and I’ll have some fun with it.

One of the things that bothers me so much about this Broadway season is that many of Great Comet’ defining aspects were things repeatedly praised in Hamilton only last year, yet they were largely ignored in GC’s production. 

Everyone (not just the Broadway tumblr fanbase, I’m also referring to the mainstream media) praised Hamilton for its diversity, and rightfully so. And while Great Comet was not as diverse as Hamilton, its use of racially blind casting should be used as a model for all future productions. Denée Benton, a black woman with natural hair playing a romantic lead of a prominent musical about old Russians, is damn groundbreaking. Oak’s upcoming turn as Pierre proves this commitment to diversity by the show. Yes, Hamilton did this last year, but one show acting in this way does not excuse ignoring others for doing the same.

Everyone praised Hamilton for seamlessly blended together multiple genres of music; again, rightfully so. Great Comet did this to an even greater extent. Dave Malloy’s score beautifully combined seemingly every genre to create a cohesive, genius piece of work. He utilized these different genres to describe his characters so subtly no one realizes he’s doing it. I could take for pages about how his score is a damn masterpiece, but the point lies in that Hamilton was widely praised for doing the very thing Great Comet is being ignored (or even downright criticized) for.

Finally, many praised Lin’s using of an unconventional source material to tell an excellent Broadway musical. But, again, Dave Malloy looking at a tiny sliver of a classic novel and deciding it should be an electropop opera musical? How? He took something so frequently adapted and made it incredibly original in ways many do not realize. It’s quite frustrating to see writers using the War & Peace origins as only an introductory statement instead of the praise it should be.

tl;dr: I’m just really pissed so many people ignore Great Comet’s successes in the very categories they praised Hamilton for okay sorry for the rant
