Something Rotten! Appreciation Week, Day 1: Favorite Character
As you well know, I love every character from Something Rotten!… but no one as much as the man who put the I Am in Iambic Pentameter… my beloved William Shakespeare! The sexy, sneaky rockstar who stole not only Hamlet but my heart. From Christian Borle’s Tony-winning performance to Will Chase’s 3 gorgeous months in the role to Eric Sciotto’s ultimate understudy turn to Adam Pascal’s refreshing pre-tour warmup run… I love Rotten’s take on the Bard and am so glad I’ve gotten to see all four of the main run Bards in the past two years.
“See, what we call God depends upon our tribe, Clark Joe, ‘cause God is tribal; God takes sides! No man in the sky intervened when I was a boy to deliver me from daddy’s fist and abominations. I figured out way back: if God is all-powerful, he cannot be all good. And if he is all good, then he cannot be all-powerful. And neither can you be.”
Alright, hard Sunday sleepover question ahead; who is your single favorite dragon age LI? Who is your single favorite brotp da companion?
My brotp is easy. Varric. I love him, he’s perfect. Varric Varric Varric!
Single favorite LI is harder!!!! Uhhhhh why do you do this to me, nonny? I love my man-stable. I tend to all my men with love and care.
Ok… If I can answer from my headcanon.. Hawke. He just does it for me. But i doubt that’s what you want. So…. Bioware LIs….. Ummm… Fuck it. Alistair. How could it not be? The bastard stole my heart and cradled it in his big, beefy arms. I love him so much.
I think most of us fear reaching the end of our life, and looking back regretting the moment we didnt speak up. We didnt say “I love you” when we should’ve said “Im sorry.” We didnt stand up for ourselves or someone who needed help.
These songs are made up of words i didnt say when the moment was right in front of me. These songs are open letters. Each is written with a specific person in mond, telling them what i meant to tell them in person. To the beautiful boy who’s heart i broke in December. To my first love who i never thought would be my first heartbreak. To my band. To a mean man I used to be afraid of. To someone who made my world very dark for a while. To a girl who stole something from me. To someone i forgive for what he said in front of the whole world.

“What with good reason, my god…I think Rosario has a lot to do with it. You can feel her heart in her work. I think also the character—she’s a strong woman, she helps the people she cares about. There’s a lot to really want to see more of.” ~ Deborah Ann Woll [Karen Page]
"She’s got it all, it’s equal parts the character as the actor. She’s an incredibly talented actor. She just exudes coolness, you know? She’s cool, but she doesn't–she’s sweet. I just think she’s awesome and she’s highly, highly capable. I get it, I fell in love with her, yeah.” ~ Jon Bernthal [Frank Castle/Punisher]
“She’s one of the best actresses on the planet is one of the truer ways to put it. The other thing—Our show is very much about New York City and there are few people on the planet who feel like, ‘Oh, New York City just walked into the room.’ That’s one of the reasons I think we also love Rosario.” ~ Marco Ramirez [Executive producer and showrunner]
“Yeah, Rosario has everything. She’s beautiful, she’s talented, but also she’s just super cool. She befriends everybody and she’s just got such a great energy—that New York energy is so palpable that she would make you believe anything.” ~ Douglas Petrie [Executive producer and showrunner]
“I think it’s probably Rosario Dawson who probably does it. She’s got such an amazing presence and she’s such a wonderful person and actor. But I think also Claire Temple was written beautifully. I think a lot of people, in the same way that Matt—he could open up to her in a way he hasn’t to anyone else. I think she probably made the audience feel the same way as well.” ~ Charlie Cox [Matt Murdock/Daredevil]
Our love used to be so sweet,
Warm and rich,
Like hot cocoa on a snow day.
Now it is cold and stale like an old cracker.
I still gravel for crumbs like a panhandler.
Desperate for any type of attention from you…
Why don’t you chase me anymore?
I used to have no doubt in my mind that you cared,
It seems like the spark between us has faded,
Our love slowly dying day by day,
Still I hold on.
I have hope that you’ll realize how you’re breaking my heart,
A dream that’ll probably never come true.
The sweet thoughts of you and I still lull me to sleep at night,
A reality I only have when my eyes are shut.
Do you wonder why I’m in bed all day now?
What hits harder is your constant denial of everything.
According to you, nothing has changed.
You’re still the man who stole my heart all those years ago,
I was the apple of your eye.
You’ve seemed to forgotten putting my heart in the freezer.
Next to the meats and ice.
I’m just a grocery to you.
Only consumable, when you’re hungry.
I’m left to burn in the cold when you’re full.
Oh baby don’t you know how full you’d be if you took care of me?
Plant my broken heart into the ground,
Fertilize it with your tears.
Let the roots of our history grow strong.
May my branches always be thick with sap,
That you can drink from when you’re weak.
The leaves large and healthy to keep you cool,
Giving you shade when the sun beats on the back of your neck.
My bark stronger than the bite you’ll take from my fruits.
And if I so happen to be cut down,
Let the ground shake and crumble at your feet.
For the absence of the beautiful tree has shaken Mother Earth herself.
To where she will be disappointed in you,
For letting something like me slip away from your fingertips..
a mix for the magic boy who could travel between worlds, the cross-dressing thief who stole from him and the londons – grey, red, white and black.

I totally did not title this to make inappropriate suggestions…
OKAY BUT GUYS SHE POSTED A PIC OF HALF NAKED LORCAN SO CAN WE JSUT TAKE A MOMENT PLZ?
Anyway back to the theory.
Sarah posted a picture of a man holding the hand of a little girl with white blond hair, she was surrounded by golden light.
The picture was titled Lorcan.
Sarah posted another picture of a man with long black hair, bent at the waste and a look of anguish on his face who I’m going to assume was Lorcan.
It was titled Sins of a father.
There are a few possibilities for what this could mean.
1) Lorcan had a daughter who died, which could be the reason he turned to queen dick face.
2) Lorcan has a daughter who is still alive that he can’t/doesn’t want to see because of queen dick face.
If his daughter is alive there are some possibilities.
A little girl with white blond hair, pale skin and surrounded by GOLDEN light.. You should be able to guess who fits that description, Manon Blackbeak.
We heard a little about her mother but nothing about her father so it’s a possibility.
I ruled out Evangeline because she’s very young and rowan would have scented it on her. Also Lys Coz Ovbs.
Perhaps one of the other witches is a possibility or maybe even Kaltain? She does have black hair and she was veryyy powerful.
She also posted a picture of Lorcan and a woman I’m going to assume was his mate/lover so it’s probable he does or did have a daughter.
That’s just about all I got, anyone got any ideas on who the little girl in the picture could be? And what do you think about his mate?
Imagine finding out that your co-worker Chris Evans, has a crush on you
You nervously walk up to the blonde man who stole your heart and cleared your throat to get his attention. “Is it true?”
He looked up at you in confusion and opened his mouth to answer. “Is what true?”
Sighing, you shook your head at his question. It was impossible for him to not have heard the rumors being spread about the two of you but you obviously needed to elaborate. “What everyone is saying about us.” He continued to gaze at you quizzingly and you let out a small noise of irritation. “That you like me. People think that we’re a couple and I want to know if there’s any truth to it all.”
“Yeah, there’s some truth to it.” He shifted his gaze to the ground and you opened your mouth in surprise, having not expected such a straight-forward answer. “What about you? How do you feel about it all?”

“I don’t know where I’m going but I promise I won’t bore you."
Today is the birthday of a person who continues to inspire me each and every day of my life. His music, his originality and himself shows me that no matter what character he may impersonate on stage, he will always be David Robert Jones, the man who stole our hearts.
Happy birthday my love, I hope you have a great one.
