The next in my musical parody series, this is my parody of RENT. Musical-verse because it's longer/better/has more stuff than the movie. T for lots of swearing and, well, because it's RENT. Reviews are more than welcome.Rated: Fiction T - English - Humor - Words: 1,577 - Reviews: 6 - Favs: 6 - Published: 01-12-13 - Status: Complete - id: 8902215

Disclaimer: I don't own Rent (sadly).
Note: Well, here's another one of my parodies. I got really stuck while writing my Les Miz parody (which will be up whenever inspiration for it strikes again), but this one kind of just seemed to happen. And despite what this fic might suggest, no, I'm not on drugs. Musical-verse.
Mark: OMG ROGER, IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE!
Mark: BUT SANTA'S GONNA COME TONIGHT!

Mark: …fuck my life.
Phone: *rings again*
Collins: FUCKING PICK THE PHONE UP!

Mimi: Those are MINE, thank you very much! *takes them and leaves*
Roger: Well. That was interesting.
Joanne's Parents: BRA!
Mark: I'm back! How was your angsting?

Joanne: …so she's a slut, right?
Mark: Yeah, basically.
Mark: Well, I'm off to crash a life support meeting!
AIDS Patients: Life sucks and then you have risky sex, get AIDS, and die. At least we have each other!
Mimi: FUCK, I'm horny and my vibrator died and I have no batteries! Lemme go stalk that-guy-who-lives-upstairs-with-his-best-friend again!
Roger: FOR THE LAST TIME, MY NAME IS ROGER! Also you interrupted my private time with Betsy.

All: *in agreement* yeah!
Angel: I killed your dog!
All: *in surprise* OMG!
All: *sit in silence* …what?
Mark: It's SO obvious that I'm bi due to my ho yay with Roger, but this musical only allows for one bi character, which is Maureen, so I'll be quiet now.
