the chorus is accurate

Harvest Celebration
The Petrojvic Blasting Company
Harvest Celebration

Figured it was an appropriate time of year to remind everyone of my favorite, somewhat underrated, song from the OTGW soundtrack. I love the harmonies!

From flesh removed our chalk footfall
tempers this holy ground
Where timeless spirits meet
Round the heart of Pottsfield town

O Hi thee forth o’er golden mead
yon is the maypole set
A ribbon to wind thy soul
And to bind love to thy breast

sdljfhkshdkjshfd omg thank you all so much. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. On with the show~~

Previous ficlet is here.

“He’s still looking at me,” Izuku says. “I’m going to die.”

“Don’t be so dramatic,” Uraraka says.

“He thinks I’m a freak,” Izuku continues, keeping his head down and trying not to glance at Todoroki Shouto, who is currently burning a hole in Izuku’s forehead with his eyes. “I’ve creeped him out and now he’s out to get me. I’m going to die.”

Uraraka and Iida glance at each other, looking amused. “I think it looks like he wants to talk to you,” Iida says.

“Talk to me?” Izuku squeaks. “Do you see his face? He looks like he wants to squish my head between his sculpted biceps and his perfect forearm flexors.”

Uraraka glances behind her. “I don’t know, I think he looks like he wants to squeeze your head between his thighs.”

“Uraraka-san,” Izuku complains.

“What? I’m just being honest.”

Izuku puts his forehead on the lunch table and covers his head with his hands. “I’m going to die, I’m going to die, I’m going to die.”

“I think you’re causing him concern,” Iida says mildly. This is not the first of Izuku’s freakouts his friends have seen. Hell, this isn’t even the first of Izuku’s Todoroki-centric freakouts they’ve seen. Izuku’s friends are a godsend. He doesn’t know what he would do without them.

“Is he making faces?” Uraraka asks. “I don’t want to turn around again in case it looks suspicious.”

“No,” Iida says, “He’s coming over here.”

“What?” Izuku’s head rockets up and he casts his eyes around wildly to see that yes, Todoroki Shouto is currently making his way between the crowded lunch tables towards them. Todoroki nods at everyone who calls his name, which is most people. Izuku sinks lower in his chair and prays to disappear.

Maybe he’ll just walk right on by. Maybe Izuku won’t spontaneously combust from the focused intensity of the most popular and attractive guy in school.

Todoroki sits down in the seat next to Izuku on the other side from Iida. “Midoriya.”

“Todoroki-kun,” Izuku squeaks. It sounds terrible coming out of his mouth like that, all high and painful, and Izuku has to stop himself from putting a hand over his mouth. He clears his throat and tries again. “Todoroki-kun, what are you doing here?”

“You seem distressed,” Todoroki says. There’s a wrinkle between his eyebrows where they’re furrowed and Izuku has the sudden desire to reach out and smooth it back out to the lax face he wore in the classroom at the fair last week. “I was wondering if I could help.”

“He’s very distressed,” Uraraka says. “You could totally help.”

“Uraraka-san,” Izuku complains, feeling betrayed. He turns to Todoroki. “I’m fine, Todoroki-kun. I didn’t mean to bother you.”

“It’s not a bother,” Todoroki says. “I was just worried that it was because of that happened last week.”

“It’s not,” Izuku says, flapping his hands around as if he can brush Todoroki’s completely accurate assessment aside.

“It is,” Iida and Uraraka chorus behind him at the same time.

Todoroki blinks. “I see.”

There’s silence. Izuku puts his head on the table again. He feels more than sees Uraraka and Iida having some sort of conversation through gestures. Izuku no longer cares. He’s just going to sit here until the cafeteria gods see fit to end his suffering. He’s so embarrassed his face could probably cook an egg.

“Midoriya,” Todoroki says at last. “Would you go out with me?”

Izuku’s probably dreaming. Distantly he hears the sound of skin on skin, like a slap. He lifts his head to see Uraraka’s face in her hands. On Izuku’s left Iida sighs heavily. On Izuku’s right Todoroki stares with wide eyes.

“Was I not suppose to say that?”

Izuku opens his mouth. He’s not sure what to say so what comes out is some kind of dying whale noise.

“Midorya?” Todoroki says, sounding concerned. “Are you alright?” 

He touches Izuku’s shoulder just briefly and it jumpstarts Izuku’s brain. Everything comes back online with a roaring vengeance. He runs scenarios about Todoroki making fun of him, about this being a joke, about what Todoroki’s popular friends would say if Izuku ended up actually dating Todoroki. All the negative possibilities are laid out before him, the ways that everything could go wrong.

In the back of Izuku’s mind a little voice says ‘but I want to’.

He imagines holding Todoroki’s hand, his fingers sliding between Izuku’s. He imagines brushing Todoroki’s hair out of his face, he imagines going to the movies together or grabbing dinner. He imagines Todoroki in the passenger seat of his beat up Buick, he imagines making Todoroki smile or laugh. He imagines kissing Todoroki Shouto.

“Okay,” Izuku’s stupid mouth says. Todoroki frowns and Izuku rushes to make himself clear. “I mean, yes. I mean, if that was a real offer then I’d totally go out with you, not that you have to go out with me if you don’t want to I mean you’re probably really busy and there’s all kinds of people you could go out with that are way better than me, but if you want to go out with me I’d totally love to- I mean like to! I’d like to. Go out. On like a date. With you. If you want.” Izuku clasps a hand over his own mouth to make himself stop talking.

Todoroki blinks for a second, overwhelmed by Izuku’s stupid run-on mouth, before he smiles. Its a small one, just a little curl at the corners of his mouth, but his eyes light up and it makes Izuku nearly swoon.

“Okay,” Todoroki says.

“Finally,” Uraraka says and Todoroki and Izuku both turn to look at her. She’s dragged her hands down from her face and she’s grinning at them, wide and open and happy. “I thought you two would never stop pining.”

“All’s well that ends well,” Iida says.

“I’m confused,” Izuku says.

“That’s okay,” Todoroki says. “I am too so at least we’re in it together.”

Izuku’s been blushing for so long he’s not sure his face will ever be anything but red.

“Oh my god,” Uraraka complains. “You haven’t even been dating a minute and you’re already disgustingly cute.”

“Todoroki,” Kirishima calls from across the cafeteria. “We’re headed out.”

Todoroki nods at his friend and then stands up. He turns to Izuku. “I’m leaving, but I’ll see you later?”

Izuku can’t stop himself from smiling up at Todoroki. “Yeah, okay.”

He nods to Izuku’s friends and then he’s gone. Izuku turns back to Iida and Uraraka. “I think I’m dreaming. Someone punch me.”

Uraraka leans across the table and socks Izuku in the shoulder. It hurts, so it must be real.

“Uraraka-kun, don’t actually punch him,” Iida complains.

“He asked for it,” Uraraka defends.

“It’s real,” Izuku says. “I’m really dating Todoroki Shouto.”

Iida and Uraraka glance at each other again.

“Congratulations,” Iida says.

“You really are a Disney princess now,” Uraraka laughs.

Izuku face-plants into the cafeteria table again. “Oh my god.”

Are Lemony’s memories of his chilhood incorrect?

“All the Wrong Questions” tells us all about the times young Lemony Snicket got things wrong… except he really didn’t. He was right about Ellington being a liar, about Hangfire being a villain, about the Bombinating Beast being central to his plot. The only parts of the plot he truly got wrong concern Kit and his family in general, and the way they relate to the VFD organization.

But what if Lemony’s misinterpretations extended even further? What if the series hid something even more ominous, more sinister, of which Lemony only got a glimpse?

We will argue (after the cut) that Lemony suffered a form of trauma during his early chilhood, which eventually caused him to exhibit symptoms of False Memory Syndrome (FMS) as a coping mechanism. This syndrom eventually damaged his relationships in later life. Simply put: Lemony’s memories of his family life prior to his VFD apprenticeship are completely wrong.

Dear Non-Jin stans,

I’m going to try to be as nice, polite and clear about this. Please STOP telling us to not complain about the lack of Jin’s lines. What makes you think we don’t appreciate the song? Just because we want more Jin lines, it doesn’t mean we aren’t enjoying it. Let me tell you something as someone who has been a Jin stan for a while:

We get excited for a new song, only to hear our bias sing a few seconds or a few lines. We’re thankful and blessed, but do you know how painful and hard it is to watch Jin get treated like that? Trust me, we truly appreciate, love and support each member equally. But put yourself in our shoes. What if Jimin or Jungkook had the amount of lines Jin has had in all the existing songs? What if Jimin and Jungkook swapped places with Jin? Wouldn’t you complain as well? Put yourselves in our shoes.

Now I understand that those two are the main/lead vocals, and I don’t want to compare, but take their friends over at VIXX as an example. Leo and Ken are their main vocals and yes, they get the most lines understandably, but Hyuk (makane, sub vocal) and Hongbin (visual, sub vocal) somehow get decent line distributions. Mind you, Hongbin has a similar voice to Jin, so don’t pull the “voice doesn’t match” excuse on us because Kim Seokjin is much more capable than you think. They underestimate his voice and it’s time they let him show what he can do.

Also, don’t tell us that we shouldn’t feel this way because Jin isn’t upset. With all due respect, how would you know? Life on and off camera is different. What they say in interviews, videos and even their behavior can be very different. What if Jin is pretty upset or down, but he doesn’t want to show it to not worry the ARMYs or bring down the other members? We don’t need Jin to cry or be sad in order for us to feel like that. What if we are sad for him?

Also, wait for the MV? No. It’s not always like that. In Spring Day, during Jin’s part before the second chorus, they showed J-Hope on top of the train. In Dope, it was Jimin’s part before Jungkook’s and the chorus, but they showed Jin. MVs aren’t always accurate in terms of showing who is singing. 

Bottom line, DON’T TELL US TO NOT COMPLAIN. You’re sick of seeing or hearing “where are Jin’s lines?” or people complaining? Well guess what. WE’RE SICK OF THE WAY THEY ARE TREATING JIN. So sit down and don’t tell us to not complain. Respect our feelings. You don’t know how hard it is to deal with this. Call us salty, but we can only take so much. JUST BECAUSE WE WANT MORE JIN, DOESN’T MEAN WE DON’T ENJOY AND APPRECIATE THE SONG AND OTHER MEMBERS. WE DO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. WE APPRECIATE AND ENJOY THEM ALL. WE JUST WANT IT TO BE MORE FAIR.

The Shadow Players and the Greek Tragic Chorus

One thing that you see a lot in the Revolutionary Girl Utena fandom is comparison of the Shadow Players with the ‘Greek chorus’, which in some ways is quite appropriate. However, as a classicist who’s read and studied a bit (although not a lot) of Greek drama, it’s clear to me that there are a lot of misunderstandings floating around about what a Greek chorus actually does and what similarities it shares with the Shadow Players, and visa versa. I think a lot of these come from the place where we all get our basic media analysis toolbox: the TV tropes page. This is reasonable, since obviously not everyone is a classicist nor is interested in reading tragedy; but it’s also a problem, because even with my limited knowledge of tragedy it’s clear to me that the trope page (as of the time of writing) does not accurately describe the Greek tragic chorus. It even manages, as far as I can tell, to completely misquote Aristotle’s Poetics on the topic (check your sources, everyone!). The Shadow Players do, in fact, conform fairly well to the TV Tropes definition of a ‘Greek Chorus’: a character or group, somehow removed from the action, offering commentary on the main characters and events in a fairly impartial way, often speaking directly to the audience. This is a perfectly good comparison to make, since it is a fairly widespread trope; it just has very little to do with actual Greek choruses. Therefore, lengthy introduction aside, I thought it might be instructive to get some context on the Greek tragic chorus as it originally was, and reconsider the question of whether the Shadow Players can be usefully compared to it.

These seem to be the lyrics. I’m not 100 percent sure if this is accurate.

Come Wayward Souls (Chorus Only)
Grow, tiny seed,
you are gone to the tree.
till your leaves, fill the sky,
Until your sights,
fill the air in the night.
Lift your mighty limbs,
and give praise,
to the fire.
