Why this must be read: This fic not only captures Natalie's character--dead-set on a track she's less than certain of, desperate for something to change--but it also does so in a tone so perfect for her. From Natalie's tryst with Henry to her talking to Gabe and interactions (or lack thereof) with her parents, Mimi finds a post-finale progression that is absolutely my head-canon now.

Mom's not around to fuss over him--what she thought was him--so it's easier to not hate him. )

1st-Dec-2011 08:50 am Fandom Overview: Musical Theater
 (Mods, we need some serious musical theater tags!)

If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere!Musical theater fandom is an interesting animal. Like any entertainment genre, its topics and themes are as varied as human experience. What’s curious, though, is that Broadway nerds like me often tend to just enjoy musical theater, period, whether it’s the Gothic gore of Sweeney Todd, the feel-good brightness of Hairspray, or the madcap history lesson of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. Despite a range of musical styles and diverse modes of storytelling, musical theater somehow lends itself to a comprehensive fandom of sorts.
