Author has written 7 stories for RENT, Marching Band, Wicked, Harry Potter, and Misc. Plays/Musicals.

Hello, all. Finally got around to updating this thing. Surprised? Me too.

Name: DefiGraviti, as far as any of you are concerned

Age: Does it really matter? I'm sure you can figure out a general age span if you pay enough attention.

General likes: Music, Broadway, musical theatre, band, reading, writing, the colors green and purple, soft and fuzzy things, taking pictures, and laughing until I cry.

Favorite musicals (in order, more or less): Wicked, Legally Blonde, RENT, Avenue Q, Aida, Tick Tick Boom, Hairspray, Spring Awakening, Phantom of the Opera, etc.

Favorite Books/Authors: Harry Potter, Wicked: the Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, Gregory Maguire in general, John Green, Margaret Peterson Haddix, Justine Larbelestier, Maureen Johnson, Jerry Spinelli's Stargirl books, My Most Excellent Year, E. Lockhart, Spellbook of Listen Taylor, and Margaret Atwood. There are more, but I tend to blank when trying to list.

Favorite TV shows: Pushing Daisies, Gilmore Girls, Smallville, Lost, and Kyle XY. But I actually don't watch TV very often.

Favorite Pairings: Elphaba/Glinda friendship, Fiyeraba (if done well), Ron/Hermione, EmmettElle, Roger/Mimi, Maureen/Mark.

Pairings I Hate: Most of all, Snape/Hermione, McGonagall/Hermione, and any other horrendously wrong pairing. But, out of all of my friends, I'm really the only one who just doesn't like slash or crack pairings. Call me boring, but I prefer canon.

Favorite Fandoms: Generally Wicked and Harry Potter. But if you look below, you'll see that I'm currently on a Legally Blonde kick, so that's my main fandom at the moment.

Long Term Obsession: Wicked

Current Short Term Obsession: Legally Blonde


:Rant:

I'm getting incredibly irritated with everyone on here (and everywhere else) who claim that you cannot be a true fan unless you've seen a show live. All sorts of "true fans" are going around saying that you can't be a true RENT fan or a true Hairspray fan if you've only seen the movies. Which is just screwed up. For one, the movie cast of Hairspray leaves the Broadway cast in the dust. Y'all are welcome to your own opinions, and if you prefer Marissa Jaret Winokur to Nikki Blonski, that's fine. But as a singer, I personally cannot tolerate to listen to the OBC cast recording. For two, the RENT movie has most of the OBC. That's about as high quality as you can get. For three, some people just aren't fortunate enough to be leaking money or to live near a theatre. I, for one, live in the middle of a suburb, about twelve hours away from New York. I don't have free access to Broadway or to the money to buy tickets. And, switching topics, I was a fan, a "true fan", of Wicked MONTHS before I saw it. By the time I took seat in the theatre last summer, I had memorized every word on the cast recording, could recite the names and bios of just about the entire OBC, could recite the names and bios of several cast members in the touring and current Broadway casts, could tell you the plot in detail from beginning to end, could make references that only oboefae would get, held regular discussions on character motivations and themes, and was about a quarter of the way through the Wicked100 challenge that oboefae and I are taking on together. I don't feel that my status as a fan has increased or decreased since I saw it last July, even though I've now seen it another time. I don't feel that my status as a RENT fan has changed at all since I saw it last year, either. That's just not how it works. I don't believe that Broadway obsession should be limited to the very few who are privilaged enough to have regular access to it. So what's next? Am I not a true Legally Blonde fan if I've only seen the recording on MTV? Because, I'm sorry, there's a very limited audience that has access to it at the moment. It hasn't even begun touring yet! And smaller shows like Tick Tick Boom and Aida have never come anywhere near me. So is this to become the next Star Wars? I have a friend who's possibly more obsessed with those movies than I am with Wicked, but he's constantly ticked off because he gets irritated when people tells him he's not a "true fan" because he wasn't a fan when 4, 5, and 6 first came out. But you know what? He wasn't alive! That doesn't mean that he loves them any less, just that he's had to work harder to be as much of a fan as he is because all of the memoradelia and hype isn't being shoved in his face everyday.

Fandom isn't something that is determined by your age or level of privilage, but rather by the amount of love you have for the show.


That being said, I'm a self-professed nerd whose favorite activities include discussing books, playing cards, making obscure references that no one else gets, defying stereotypes, and hanging out in a closet with her friends every day during seventh period. I am an honor kid who never sleeps and who discusses Chemistry at Friday night movie nights. I am a Nerdfighter. My favorite characters to play with are my friends, but you'll probably never read any of that stuff here. My Circle means the world to me and the band room is my second home. Though I am a band kid through and through and my flutes (Roger, Norman Stefan, and the late Gloria) are my babies, I am first and foremost a singer and a performer.

So, Wicked, Nerdfighting, and marching band. That should explain everything. Constructive criticism is, as always, greatly appreciated!

Oh, and be sure to check out the site I share with oboefae, BarbosaTheGreenDucky, where we are currently taking on the Wicked100 challenge.
