i hope anastasia wins an award, but i wouldn't be surprised at all if TGC won costume design.

I wouldn’t be surprised either, because TGC is the more popular show, and there’s no denying that their costumes are really amazing. But I’m still holding out hope that Anastasia will pull through and take the award, because I feel like Great Comet has a good chance of winning in multiple other categories, whereas Anastasia won’t get that chance.

Would you believe me if I said I only just remembered that today’s the 5th anniversary of my all-time favorite game? Haha, yup. It’s a bit rushed because of vacation shenanigans, but this is an idea that I had in the back of my head for a long time: a mass-rebirth-meteor-shower shindig. I only wish I had more time to execute on it. Hope you enjoy!

And I’ve been studying the Cabal
And I’ve calculated the number of the beast
It is Napoleon!


Hi! It has been a WHILE! But here is a drawing of Okieriete Onaodowan as Pierre in Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812. Which is one of my secret loves. I just really really really like the great comet. And the idea of Oak as Pierre is incredible.

I hope you like it!

Cool things from seeing the Great Comet live (in no particular order)

SPOILER WARNING!!
Also this is based off my personal experience, so it may be different for others!
