Ragtime

If you ever get the chance to see a production of Ragtime, I could not further urge you to go. I am shocked by how poignant the story remains to everyday life after quite a few years since its original incarnation. It must be one of the most well-written shows of all time, if not the number one smartest piece of theatre.

“It was the music of something beginning, an era exploding, a century spinning in riches and rags, and in rhythm and rhyme.

The people called it Ragtime“

Whole whumpy episodes

Inspired by the recent #Whump Challenge - Day 18 question and the priceless support of Whumpapedia document,
I will collect here single episodes where the whump starts at the BEGINNING OF THE EPISODE and LASTS/EVOLVES ALL THE EPISODE LONG. Something you can relay on to enjoy and cheer up!
This page will be continuously updated. Any suggestion/help are most appreciated and welcome!
