okay so I know we all sad and stuff about Sherlock leaving John’s wedding early and all
but imagine what it was like for John to turn around and suddenly Sherlock’s not there and he left without even saying goodbye
imagine John turning around to talk to Sherlock about “hey it’s this song!” or “remember that case —” and not being able to find Sherlock anywhere
maybe he’d be looking around asking people, “Have you seen Sherlock?” trying to shout over the music and repeating the question, “SHERLOCK?” and people just shake their head or shrug until finally Molly tells him, “I think I saw him leave!”
and remember all the times Sherlock has just left John, all the times that John has simply turned around and Sherlock isn’t there and what that must feel like
that awful drop in the stomach feeling -
and John tells himself, well, weddings obviously aren’t Sherlock’s thing, and he hates people and he probably doesn’t want to dance anyway
and he tells himself that he’s probably lucky that Sherlock performed all his best man duties and gave a fairly amazing toast, attempted murder notwithstanding
and Mary finds him and she asks him, “What’s wrong?”
and John has to remind himself that this is supposed to be their special day and there’s a baby on the way and he looks at her and she’s his new wife, his wife, and they have a whole future together, she’s meant to be his life now, and she looks beautiful in her wedding dress and she’s looking at him with that crease that she gets in her forehead when’s she’s slightly anxious and he’s meant to be happy, he deserves to be happy
and so he takes a deep breath and says, “Nothing,” and he tries on a smile. ”Come on. Let’s dance.”
Whenever the argument that Emma and Regina have “always been depicted as straight” comes up, I think of Callie and Erica on Grey’s Anatomy.
Callie was shown only to have relationships with men for several seasons. More than one man. George, Mark, Alex. Never a hint to having any interest in women. Until she did. And then she married one.
And Erica literally said, on the show, that she was specifically NOT a lesbian. Like actually said it, out loud. But then she and Callie got together and SHE WAS ACTUALLY A LESBIAN even despite specifically declaring herself not, in canon.
So all arguments that Emma and Regina have to be heterosexual are forever invalid. They can be with a hundred different men and write a whole symphony about heterosexuality if they want to, and the writers could STILL chose to make Swan Queen happen. There is nothing in canon stopping them.
That is all. :)
1. She’s one of the few Broadway stars of her generation who is equally popular in both Britain and the United States.
2. She hasn’t even been nominated for a Tony Award, much less won a Tony and yet she’s more well known than most performers who’ve been nominated multiple times.
3. She’s close and personal friends with a world famous composer who praises her often.
4. She’s sung for the Queen of England. And she isn’t even British, people.
5. Made her Broadway debut in a high-profile production that could have easily cast a more experienced or bankable star, but instead choose a 25-year-old fresh out of her first professional leading role in Las Vegas.
6. By the age of 27 she had already starred in two brand spankin’ new productions both on Broadway and in London.
7. From Disney Princess to opera student to Phantom’s muse to dying prostitute (Fantine, what up), she’s without a doubt one of the most versatile actresses in theatre today.
8. She toured in Japan. (Like, how many musical theatre stars get to do that?????? SOOOO awesome.)
9. Although she’s a young soprano, she has yet to be in any revivals on Broadway or the West End. She’s only done new productions, or been a replacement in a long running production. Most sopranos these days (Kelli O’Hara, Rebecca Luker, Laura Benanti) need the help of a revival to showcase their vocal talents, but she made it without one. Impressive!
10. Got her start in a poor inner-city high school, went to a tiny almost unknown college (although they did have a musical theatre program, duh), somehow managed to become an international star before age 30.
Musicals and their cruel need to include reprises and heartbreaking song parallels.
I guess I sorta know the guy playing Jean Valjean. I can’t remember his name something about Rame—I don’t know. Whatever. I’ll look forward to seeing if he’s okay, y’know?
FUCKING PLOT TWIST
GOOD JOB DISNEY
NO BUT AT THIS PART IN THE MOVIE I SHOUTED “YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE” AND MY FRIEND SMACKED ME
AT THIS PART IN THE MOVIE, THIS GROWN GHETTO MAN SCREAMS “AW DAAAAAAMN” IM NOT EVEN KIDDING
My third time seeing it a little girl just sort of whisper/screamed “What?” like her little heart couldn’t take it
My entire theatre gasped as one. It was audible. It satisfying. And amazing. <3
^Same with mine
So I have seen/heard:
- whole theaters gasping
- a mother gasping and shouting “HOW COULD YOU?” at the screen while her young kids told her to be quiet
- one boyfriend saying “HOLY SHIT, YOU DOUCHEBAG”
- another boyfriend saying “…did he just…? DAMN”
- yet another boyfriend saying “…ouch” with an audible wince of sympathy
- a little girl in front of me saying “…no” in a hushed, horrified voice
- and a girl around my age literally STANDING UP and screaming at the screen “YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE!” while her boyfriend physically restrained her and tried to calm her down
Audience Reactions to the Hans Reveal: easily one of the best parts of seeing Frozen in the theater.
FUCK THIS PART
I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.
women in trades are treated like such fucking shit.
NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH
