    Summary

    College is about the experiences you have along the way. About coming out of your shell, trying new things, and having new realizations about yourself. For Tommy that realization comes after his best friend David and his brother Billy both miss out on a standing game night tradition for their group. What plays out over the next few months leaves his head spinning, Tommy reevaluating his opinions of David, and perhaps coming to understand something new about himself in the process.

    But really, did it have to come down to stiletto boots?

    Summary

    Sal, who had been placed as stage crew manager, knew all the ins and outs of behind stage. Where the costumes were held, where the workshop was, and which closets were somewhat soundproof. That last bit of knowledge proved to be extremely useful when it came to having Travis pinned up against the utility closet door.

    Update, I wrote a song based on this fic! Go check it out!

    Summary

    Elliot stirs his fair-trade Kenyan coffee. “So, who were you thinking of casting in this… post-apocalyptic, Antarctic Southern Gothic, time-but-not-space-traveling love story? And am I here just to be your sounding board, or are you going to ask me where we can procure actual icebergs to decorate the stage with?”

    “I was thinking we should worry about writing all of it first before we think about casting, or icebergs,” Hazel says. “And yes, I said we, because the next thing I was going to say was—how do you feel about writing the songs for it?”

    Elliot will think, later, that this was the kind of deal he was born to make.

    Summary

    Inspired by the lovely za-sengoku-na-kenshin-no-shinji about the arcana cast being in a community theatre, I have begun a story pertaining to such an idea.

    When Asra preposes a rewritten Shakespearen play, MC will make it work as they tell the whole troupe. Antics will ensue, dramatic monologues, daring swrodfights for the director's hand. Sandbags will crash and critics will write furiously from their desk. This is only the beginning.

    Summary

    He had this dressing room to himself, something about the lead always gets the biggest room to themselves, that’s just how it works, Richie, are you sure you’ve done this before? Obviously, he had done this before, plenty of times actually, Claudius (He’d forgotten the actors real name). This time was different, though. This time Richie was carrying the show on his shoulders – Atlas carrying the Earth – and he could already feel the very specific set of hypercritical eyes boring into his soul.

    [or: Richie has moved to Britain and is cast as the lead in the semicentenary Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet. Too bad the creative director of the RSC doesn't like him very much.]

    Summary

    At Twilight High School, a new school year means new friends, new relationships, new disasters, and most importantly, a new musical! This year, with funding low and a chance of the theatre program being completely cut, the stakes have never been higher for the stars of the school to perform their absolute best in spite of numerous setbacks. All is not as it seems behind the scenes, and if more is at stake than just the theatre program... well, a little more subterfuge and sabotage won't make that much difference, right?

    [Currently on hiatus! Will be back when the prequel fics are completed!]

    Summary

    'Hecate digs her nails into her palms and fumes silently as Ada crosses over to the door, and turns back before she leaves. She ducks her head and regards Hecate over the top of her spectacles in a way that makes her feel very much like a recalcitrant ten-year old standing in front of her school headmistress.

    “Pippa Pentangle is your new Glinda for the next two months,” Ada declares with finality, “and you’re just going to have to deal with it.”’

    ***

    Hecate Hardbroom is a respected theatre actress. Pippa Pentangle is a beloved popstar. Ada is exasperated. Everyone is in ‘Wicked.’ What’s the worst that could happen?
