The coyotes around my house have been v excited these past few months. I’ve seen them probs 6 times as often since June than all the other times I’d seen one my whole life. And now I hear them howling every night, instead of once in a very long while as I used to.
those characters where if you knew them in real life you would genuinely fucking hate them but in a fictional world it’s like ah yes this fucking asshole that i love
The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.
"The important thing is not to shout at this point, Vimes told himself. Do not - what do they call it - go postal. Treat this as a learning exercise. Find out why the world is not as you thought it was. Assemble the facts, digest the information, consider the implications. Then go postal. But with precision.”
Because this is apparently what happens when I freak out about Mark Oshiro starting the series while listening to the ‘Musical Theatre’ playlist on my iPod.
I can just totally imagine Sandry adoring stage shows and musicals. During her travels with her birth parents she would take every opportunity to see stage productions, and that adoration didn’t stop when she came to Discipline. She started her new family on Disney musicals and other music movies, determined to share her love. Her personal favorite is Legally Blonde (young woman who nobody respects because of her appearance and love of fashion becomes successful lawyer, of course she’d love it.)
Briar takes some convincing, because he’s never seen a musical before and it sounds totally girly. Then it takes one film about a poor boy feeding a carnivorous plant, which proceeds to take over the world, to become hooked. (Little Shop of Horrors will always remain his favourite.)
Though she pretends indifference, Tris actually really grows to love musical movie nights. Soon she’s borrowing Sandry’s iPod to listen to the Wicked soundtrack, and stifling her annoyance that she can’t see it onstage. Eventually Frozen comes out, and its nearly as good.
Daja really can’t get into musicals. Its just not her thing- they’re too silly. Its fun to watch her siblings start singing like total dorks, though. If she had to pick, she’d probably say Stomp. That show is fun.
