Dearly beloved, we gather here to say our goodbyes...
RENT may be going off Broadway, but it will live on in all us RENTheads!
The story never ends!
No day but today.
A cure for HIV has been found!
"You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," joked Miss Saigon to Auntie Mame. "Once On This Island in the South Pacific I heard a West Side Story about an orphan named Annie who used lots of Hairspray and Grease on her beautiful Hair. To which the Phantom of the Opera replied "You're a Funny Girl but I RENT a Wicked apartment on Avenue Q with my Cats, where I can hear the Sound of Music from a Chorus Line on 42nd Street."

Me Being A Major RENThead (sometimes with friends!):
~While at Wet'n'Wild Emerald Pointe with my friend Sofri, we went down Dragon's Den twice and both times yelled "Viva La Vie Boheme!" just cuz we could
~The second time we went on DD, we had to wait for a long time to get a raft, and we were singing Tango:Maureen really quietly while we were in line. I sang Mark's _
~While on the bus to go spelunking on the class trip, we played the "Say something random and I'll see if I can relate it to RENT" game. On the way back from spelunking, we sang RENT songs, much to the annoyance of my other friend.
~When I went to dinner at this random Mexican restaurant, I freaked out when I saw they had Huevos Rancheros and had to restrain myself from climbing onto the table and singing
~I once spent fifteen minutes on my TiVo's guide thingee looking at all the episodes of Law and Order: SVU in hopes of finding Nocturne, the one with Wilson in it.
~I sleep to RENT music, and when that's not possible, I replay RENT in my head.
~I belt RENT songs in the shower despite the fact I know it annoys the rest of my family.
~I can sing La Vie Boheme from memory (All the parts!) and most of the motions.
~My little bro, at a point when he hadn't seen RENT, insulted Angel and I almost knocked him unconscious.
~prolly more, but I'm too lazy right now

(credit to missxflawless for the beautiful writing!)
RENT is my hope, my love, my fear, my passion, my obsession, my joy, my sorrow, my LIFE. RENT is love. I'm not just saying that. From the moment the first chords of Seasons chimed over the theatre speakers, I fell in love. I did. They've changed my life. RENT is about being young, being in love, being afraid and being brave, loving someone enough to keep them close to you, but loving them enough to let them go when it's their time. RENT is about hope, life, death, pain, misery, addiction. RENT is about life. Your life. Not only do you know these people, you are these people. Every one of them. If you can't relate with Mark you relate with Roger, or if you can't relate with Mimi you relate to Angel. There's more of you in all of these people than you realize there is. It's not about AIDS and Drag Queens and the Homeless, it's about your life. You experience love and hurt and fear just like these people do. RENT is about everything we experience everyday and that's why I love it.
Thank you, Jonathan Larson.
Homophobia: Stop the hate and spread the love!
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Briteny Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.
9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans... --
I'm INTO THEATRE & ART, so I MUST be a homosexual.

I am participating in NaNoWriMo, so I won't be updating until I finish probably. Sorry guys.
10/16/07 8:52 PM EST
Mkay, so, I put up a new chapter of Young Bohemians a little while ago, which again shows off the awesomeness of Mr. Vinsely. However, that is not the real reason for this update. It is to announce:
This weekend is a three-day, NO HOMEWORK weekend! Which means, of course, that I can devote much of my time to writing! WOOHOO! Expect quite a few updates come Friday night!
10/11/07 9:24 PM EST
Wow... I really stepped out of my comfort zone tonight... A MoJo songfic, my first ever femslash centric story, and a KH romance centered one... Both things I've never done before...
10/9/07 12:20 AM EST
No real point to this update, just felt like cursing my wicked insomnia...
10/8/07 11:04 PM EST
Should totally be in bed right now, as usual. Anyways, I put up a new songfic today, a MimiRoger if you're interested. Also, TWO, count em, TWO chapters of Testing their Strength have been uploaded tonight, with much Alex bashing for my onee-chan Sofri. Hope you liked em, even though I was mean to Angel... it hurt...
10/7/07 8:27 PM EST
Hey everybody! The next chapter of Young Bohemians is up for viewing! I got three chapters done this weekend, hooray! I know I still need to update Testing their Strength, but I'm having a strange lack of inspiration for that one. I'll get working on it ASAP, promise!
