How do you mean edit?
I mean remove a certain scene because I absolutely can not deal with people laughing about it.
Would anyone be willing to edit the gagreel for me so I can watch it?
DAMN IT SUAINE now I’m just thinking of a Much Ado About Nothing AU, which is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to do because the entire Hero/Claudio thing is sort of awful and also really hard to reproduce in any modern American situation. But just for the Benedick/Beatrice bits, a Sterek story where they dated, but then maybe Stiles went off to college and broke Derek’s heart and there was a big fight between them, but whatever, it’s not a big deal, he can snark and sass his way through it. Only then all the college kids graduate and have come back home, and the two of them hate each other. And Stiles has totally sworn off serious relationships anyway. Only obviously, their friends think it would be hilarious to get them to fall in love (again), and CUE SHENANIGANS.
(For added entertainment, cast Sheriff Stilinski as Don Pedro, and think about the scene where he asks if Derek would consider marrying him.)
I happen to think that the Hero/Claudio plot is something that is only possible because of the extremely young age of the two of them (they are pitted as young lovers against the more mature Benedick/Beatrice) and because of the short timeframe. No one has any time to think in the play, I’m pretty sure it all happens over the course of two days. Even in Shakespeare’s day it was kind of unbelievable - it only works because Claudio is pulled very quickly from one emotional situation to the other and doesn’t have a whole lot of time to think anything through.
And since its inception, Much Ado About Nothing needed some really strong and sensitive actors who could portray emotional, naive teens without coming across as unlikeable while playing against a power-house trope like Benedick and Beatrice. No one thinks Hero/Claudio is the A plot because they are so easy to get wrong.
But, I think the A plot can absolutely work in a modern setting and not include all that annoyingly misogynistic crap if you add another layer of miscommunication. And who better than Peter Hale to facilitate it - Scott learns of Allison’s betrayal but instead of throwing a tantrum, he quietly accepts it and let’s her go (see: whatever the hell happened in 3x12), but what Peter TELLS people is a completely different story of a boy giving in to his wolfly rage (and people reluctantly believe THAT because they know how obsessed he was with Allison and how much he struggled with the wolf thing) and then you have Allison trying to hunt him down for reasons. I haven’t really thought it through perfectly at this point. I got distracted by Derek and Stiles admitting their feelings for each other.
The hours I spend on cakewrecks now are PROFESSIONAL RESEARCH okay? Okay.

I think you’re amazing.
Anonymous asked: My favorite time of the year is the end of year holiday times, but not because there are holidays... but because there is peppermint. It's all over. People put it in drinks and in chocolate and make candies and flavor confections and someone, somewhere, hauls out the limited edition peppermint ice cream. Do you have a favorite limited-season flavor?
Haha, there are no boundaries. Like, I think cinnamon is a traditionally wintery spice but I WILL PUT IT ON EVERYTHING ALL YEAR ROUND. ALL HAIL CINNAMON!

My life is actually not too bad. Last time at therapy I couldn’t stop smiling. I’m working a job that I enjoy, I’m actually doing things outside of it like writing, and going to see movies with my best friend.
I’m exhausted, yes, but I’m actually pretty happy.

Not specifically, but as a writer, you end up in some weird places on the web XD
