Mesdames, messieurs, distingués invités, bonsoir. 
It has been a while, has it not? However, my absence was fruitful. I hope to have a preview of the first zine piece for you all soon.
Bide your time and hold out hope.

Every couple of days I get notes on my Count of Monte Cristo summary post and I feel for these people because I just know that they went looking through the tag for looking for content and instead find henry cavill gifs, general dark academia posts that tag every book on the AP lit list, and anime.

‘Happiness is like the enchanted places we read of in our childhood, where fierce, fiery dragons defend the entrance and approach; and monsters of all shapes and kinds, requiring to be overcome ere victory is ours.’

Since “Redacted ASMR as vines” already exists. 
And so does “Redacted ASMR as my favourite TV show and movie scenes” (not necessarily My favourite, but still funny and already has two parts one and two)
And I’m too lazy to actually write something (even though I have a fairly solid idea for my next pseudo-scientific ramble, don’t even hope I'd forget – it’s coming anyway) and I have absolutely no idea how to make anything in video format, I’m going to write a little incomprehensible list of
Redacted ASMR as my favourite musical theatre moments:
(keep in mind that I’m trying to be funny)
Freelancer and Gavin in the beginning – “The Thrill of First Love” from “Falsettos” with Freelancer as Marvin and Gavin as Wheezer.
Freelancer and Gavin now – “What More Can I Say?” from “Falsettos” honestly not sure who’s who and I’ve already mentioned it everywhere a million times.
Gavin talking about self-acceptance – “I Am What I Am” from “La Cage aux Folles” with the dancers from the beginning being other incubi.
Gavin comforting the Freelancer – “Everything’s Alright” from “Jesus Christ Superstar” with Gavin as Mary and Freelancer as Jesus (obviously, and then we’ll just throw Judas out of the window).
Damien – “There’s a million things I haven’t done But just you wait, just you wait…” from “Alexander Hamilton” from “Hamilton”.
Damien’s confession – “Let this moment be the first chapter: Where you decide to stay” (and what’s around this specific quote) from “That Would Be Enough” from “Hamilton” with Freelancer as Eliza (did I say I’m going to try to be funny? Screw that, I’m going to make you all cry starting with myself).
Lasko’s confession – “Only Us” from “Dear Evan Hansen” with Freelancer as Zoe and Lasko as Evan (honestly, I can very well see Huxley, Damien and maybe even Gavin as Evan too. Maybe I’m going to write a songfic based on this song.)
Lasko’s alleged gayness – “There! Right There!” from “Legally Blonde” with Lasko as Nikos and everyone else as everyone else (if we want to be super specific, “Depending on the time of day The French go either way” line would fit Gavin pretty well). (Honestly, I get that “Ha-ha, bottom” jokes are funny and all, but they make me feel weird… Especially in a context of a character who’s supposed to be in a relationship with a Gender-Neutral listener. And because I have the smallest suspicion that these are mostly girls who make those jokes.)
Caelum – “My Favourite Things” from “The Sound of Music” (this is as literal as can be).
Avior – “Every Day a Little Death” from “The Count of Monte Cristo” (I wasn’t joking about making us all cry).
Elliot and Sunshine – “Once Upon a Dream” from “Sleeping Beauty” (I bet it’s like the second most popular joke, right after “the man of your dreams”).
David and Angel – “Believe” from “The Scarlet Pimpernel” (they give me the most “married couple” vibes for obvious reasons, so I’m going to be basic).
The invisible yandere – “Meant to Be Yours” from “Heathers” specifically “You were meant to be mine!” and “I can set you free!” (I’m sorry).
The listeners (viewers?) all the time – “So many men, so little time I want them all, is that a crime? [MEN] No!” from “Bring on the Men” from “Jekyll and Hyde”.
The listeners on the eve of a new audio (especially an NSFW one) – “Tomorrow” from “Annie” or “Tomorrow Night” from “Yentl” (because I’m indecisive and I like “Yentl” more).
The viewers whenever a new character appears – “Ten Minutes” from “Cinderella”.
I thought about putting “Totale Finsternis” (“Total Eclipse”) from “Tanz der Vampire” (“Dance of the Vampires”) for Vincent and Lovely as they were at the very beginning but that felt a little… on the nose.
Also, if keep worsening with Freddy we can get to the level of the angst of “I Know Those Eyes/This Man is Dead” from “The Count of Monte Cristo” but I hope we won’t.
I even made a YouTube playlist for this. 
Commentaries and additions are as always welcome.

‘He was a fine, tall, slim young fellow, with black eyes, and hair as dark as the raven’s wing; and his whole appearance bespoke that calmness and resolution peculiar to men accustomed from their cradle to contend with danger.’

A review of the film - The Count of Monte Cristo (with about 80% of the film filmed in Malta . )
 Vengeance and Betrayal are two main themes in literature and even in human nature . Such is both themes  in the book ‘’ The Count of Monte Cristo’ written by Alexander Dumas and the portrayal of the book in the film with the same name , ‘’ The Count of Monte Cristo’’  released in 2002 . Edmond Dantes seemed to have it all , a lovely fiancee’ amongst other things and in the beginning of the film we see him friends with Fernand Mondego . However this friendship does not end well as Fernand Mondego is also attracted to Mercedes , Edmond’s fiancee’ and so he betrays Edmond who ends up in Chateau D’If , a not so inviting place and prison . Notwithstanding this being said , Edmond Dantes eventually after many years , escapes from prison and seeks revenge upon those who have wronged him . Basically , on the whole I think that the film is quite good and its script seems to run well , with obviously some of what one may notice mistakes that makes it a cliche’ sometimes but after all , it is played by good actors although it has an ending which is predictable .

My worn and beaten copy of The Count of Monte Cristo. The last time I read this, I was in my early twenties and was spending time with it in the break room during 12-hour hospital shifts. I remember escaping into it, but I don’t remember the story all that well. (Could be the eternal lack of sleep at the time. 😆) Ready to rediscover this tale of high drama and revenge, in true Dumas style. @highfunctioningflailgirl , start your engine...

Like if every male protagonist had a inclination towards vengeance I would ship them with the main female character.

Also, this movie is completely underrated. It’s probably one of my top 20 favorites of all time.

Fuck, I didn’t realize Henry Cavill was in The Count of Monte Cristo. That actually explains a lot. Like I had a crush on both Edmond and Albert when I first saw this movie on ABC Family in high school.

I have yet to find a Russian musical I have been disappointed by and the Russian production of Count of Monte Cristo definitely takes the cake of wildest thing I have seen 🙃🙃 I love the book and listen, I can excuse the changes in Jekyll and Hyde, THIS HOWEVER, COMPLETELY JUST TOSS THE BOOK OUT THE WINDOW TROPES GALORE NEVERMIND THE ACTUAL ENDING WTH. OH OF COURSE THEYRE RELATED I JOKINGLY THOUGHT THAT WOULD GET TOSSED IN THERE AND WHAT DO YOU KNOW WILDHORN DID IT
that being said I need a full boot of the Russian production STAT because hnnng pretty costumes and great staging and I can’t get enough of various cast members
