I woke up to a very weird comment on a PWP I wrote a while ago which was basically a sort of smug mockery of the fic and me? So that wasn't a good start into the day at all, and I just don't get why people feel the need to do that in the comments of a fic, sigh.

But I didn't want to spend the day feeling sad, so I decided that I definitely deserved some hot dads now and bought Dream Daddy, a gay dad dating game that has suddenly been all over my twitter. And it's very cute indeed! Obviously I had to go and make a Valjean dad and see if I could make him date the most Javert-like dad. :D

It's actually a super cute game, and I've been having fun with it! I might even offer it for Yuletide.

I managed to write another 500 words of my WIP as well - which was supposed to feature a conversation but so far has been mostly kissing. /o\ Failing at communication is truly what they're best at.

So umm, because I have never heard of moderation I actually went back to the National to see the first part of Angels in America again, live in the audience as they broadcast it (which was a fun experience with all these giant cameras around us, fortunately I sat in the second row so no audience reaction shots, phew). :D I have a ticket to see the second part at the NT as well when they film it next week, but damn it, I'll never see this play done so well again in my lifetime, and also I very much prefer paying £15 for a seat here to $100 on Broadway.

I came back home completely starved and barely managed to post the next chapter of my slavefic, which I finished editing before I left for the theatre. I also wrote a few paragraphs of chapter 51, so all in all a very good day. I'm still happy about the 50 chapters milestone, even if I still have no idea how many more it'll take - there aren't that many plot points left, but quite some emotional development, so hopefully I'll get to finish this year...

I have no idea how it got so late, but at least I managed to do an entire first edit pass through my next WIP chapter today, and even wrote an additional 500 words of the next chapter. Bed time for me now!

My Tuesday was incredible and exhausting - at last it was time for my two show day at the National to see the current production of Angels in America and it was GLORIOUS and everything I'd hoped it would be! I've never spent an entire day at the National before - I was there literally from noon to midnight, and spent 8 hours in my seat, but it was so worth it.

This felt like a defining production, I don't think I'll ever see this play again done so well in my lifetime. I know that 8 hours in a theatre sounds like a lot, but this truly went by much more quickly than some 2 hour plays I've seen. And the experience of getting to spend an entire day delving deeply into these characters and this story is indescribable.

After the show I made adorable stage door friends - Russell Tovey was just so so impressive in Bent, and then this, I just had to tell him how impressed I was, and he was so happy to hear that I'd come to see Bent especially. Andrew Garfield really impressed me as well - I don't know how you can go through eight hours of emotional upheaval on stage like that, again and again, it was so stunning! And I sat center front so I got to see every single tear and drop of sweat (and uhh Russell Tovey's balls for his full nudity scene /o\).

So, writing-wise, as I should probably have expected, I didn't get much done. We had a two hour break between part 1 and 2, and I'd brought my tablet, but I was just way too emotionally wrapped up in the play to write. I think I managed to edit a sentence or two before I gave up. But I don't regret a single bit of this day! (And I have a theatre-free day today, so hopefully I can catch up now.)

Today the booking for Fun Home in London opened, which I'm super excited about after seeing it twice in NYC. I've already booked two tickets for next summer today, and I'm sure those will multiply... :D

That was the most exciting part of today really, but at least in addition I also managed to write another 600 words of my slavefic, which means that the draft for this week's chapter is finished! Now all that's left is to edit it in time for Thursday (and get started on chapter 51, of course...)

I wrote around 600 words of a review of yesterday's show - those are mainly just a memory for myself since my brain's a sieve, and it's proving really useful when I can't quite remember details of a specific Les Mis cast/staging I've seen.

I also wasted way too much time on Stardew Valley and LOTRO today, but hey, it's Sunday. I did manage to work a bit on my WIP after I tore myself away from that, but I only managed a couple of paragraphs. Still, I've got both characters in a state of undress, and I'm really determined to bring this chapter to a satisfying ending tomorrow. ;)

Today was very emotional because it was Jeremy Secomb's final day as Javert here at Les Mis. I love him so much and I'm so sad to see him go! I managed to get a front row seat back when he announced it, so I had the very best view of his last Stars and his last Suicide and his last bows, and it was so very very good and I will miss him so much. ;_;

After the show everyone was trying to leave as quickly as possible for Jeremy's farewell party, but I did get to tell him how much I'm going to miss his Javert and got one final picture. <3

I also managed to add a handful of sentences to my BDSM AU before I left, which will have to suffice for now. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get to the WIP again, and maybe also a review of this evening, but right now I'm just about ready to fall into bed.

The Les Jours exchange had reveals today, and I received an utterly amazing story tailored perfectly to my favorite dynamics and tropes! <3

After reading and rereading and commenting, I wanted to write but fell into the trap of Stardew Valley once more, but at last pulled myself out and began something completely unrelated to any of my projects. It might never turn into a fic and might never see the light of day, but somehow I ended up with 400 words of a BDSM AU...

Honestly, this might just work better as origfic, but I really want a story like this to exist so that I can read it. (I guess there's always Yuletide to prompt it and see if someone else bites...)

I'm pretty pleased with my progress today - I edited and posted a chapter of my WIP, and then added another 650 words to next week's chapter, which is nearly done. Fraught Confrontations and Angry Overwhelmed Mutterings are such a joy to write; the trouble is getting these two idiots to any sort of conclusion...

More theatre for me yesterday: The Almeida Hamlet with Andrew Scott that just transferred to the West End. I was looking forward to it because emo princes are my aesthetic, but alas, although I really enjoyed the production in and off itself (great use of sound and light, and I enjoyed the playfulness of having the Players scene done with a live camera feed as our Danish Royals sat down in the audience. Also the effects really made the Ghost scene work), Andrew Scott was a real let down for me. His idea of doing madness was either shouting, sloooooow loopy muttering or acting camp. Topping that off with a really hammy death scene, I couldn't even enjoy Horatio's embrace, alas. The Claudius was very good though, and although the final Fortinbras video felt very tacked on, all in all I found the use of video screens/live news feeds from Norway very effective.

I made some more writing progress too: around 600 words on my WIP that made me very happy. There's nothing like a character confrontation after you had your characters parted for a few chapters. It's SO satisfying to get to write interaction again!

Yesterday I went to see a preview of Girl from the North Country at the Old Vic, a play based on/incorporating a lot of Bob Dylan music. I don't think it's making my top ten of the year so far, although it also wasn't bad - I was just missing tension especially in the first act, and with several of the songs I just didn't feel much of a connection to plot or characters. The second act picked up though, and I did like the atmosphere and several of the actors.

I also made some more progress on chapter 50 of my WIP, in which I at last get to wallow in one of my fave things: Character having Feelings and being angry about that. I should manage some more of that today as well. Maybe I can even make them go from Angry Feelings to Conversation, although that might be asking too much. :D
