#black friday

A song I want in Nerdy Prudes Must Die (if it’s the final Hatchetfield show):

A song filled with desperate hope of destroying the thing that’s causing the disasters across the different universes. Something like “From Now On” from The Greatest Showman, but darker. Kinda like “Ok, we’re done with this bs, we know what’s up, time to fuck shit up.”

OO maybe it could use prerecorded scenes that could be put up on a projector, starting out darker, but the stage lights build up! Lights flash onto each actor, having a segment to showcase each character’s versions, showcasing the different timelines of different characters mirroring the actors on stage! (E.g: Lex’s light flashes on as she’s got a few solo lines, the Lex in TGWDLM/BF are mirroring what NPMD Lex is doing.) And as the song progresses, it’s building in intensity to that burst of energy and hope and fear and satisfaction in the final chorus!! I feel like this song has potential to be kinda dance heavy?? When the burst actually happens, we could see some kind of physical stage effect like confetti or streamers or SOMETHING THAT BUILDS THE HYPE AS SOME KIND OF CYMBAL CRASH OR BIG MOMENT as the the projections come over the actors, and fade out, leaving the NPMD versions of the characters, almost in tears because they’ve found hope in something, they’ve made a decision to finally set their lives, and their other timeline lives straight! The song ends with them all in some kind of staggered V formation (it makes sense in my head), with Alice and Deb lets be honest the main characters of the show at the point of the V holding hands, and secondary cast staggered backwards in the V, looking pissed off but also strong and ready to take on whatever eldritch horror is out there. Stage blacks out in an instant. No fade, just black, right on the final note. Which would sound fuckign epic if it was a low note. Like, ok, we’re done waiting for things to fix themselves on their own. This is serious. Time to kill a bitch. Cut to intermission. I now have ideas for the beginning of act 2 but i’ll put that in another post if i ever decide to just ramble on stagung again.

I love staging. this is a mess i apologise.

 Emma was floating. Or, not really floating. Just existing. In some sort of endless void.

 Emma felt something trickle down her chin. She wearily touched it, and pulled her fingers away to see a glimmering blue substance on her fingertips.

 Ah. So she was basically dead.

 “Great,” Emma muttered, shuddering. It wasn’t cold in the void per se, but it still sent chills down her spine. She had a feeling she wasn’t alone.

 Emma was seeing things. There was the darkness, but just in front of that, she saw destruction of a familiar small town located on an island. And the destruction of it several times more.

 “Can you see them too?”

 Emma tensed. She couldn’t see Paul, but she didn’t have to. She knew his voice. She would know it anywhere, even as she viewed the visions flashing before her eyes, as she heard it mixed in with the voices of others.

 “Yeah,” she said, wiping the blue shit on her shirt. “What are they?” she asked. “Are these all… Hatchetfield?”

 A hand rested on Emma’s shoulder. She looked up–sure enough, Paul was there. But it wasn’t the alien-possessed Paul she had seen before she died. It was      Paul    , his actual, human self, his signature look of worry and discomfort on his face. Emma let herself relax under his touch.

 “It is,” he said. “As far as I can tell though, they’re not really… the same Hatchetfields.”

 “Alternate universes, timelines and shit?”

 “Seems like it.”

 Innocent bystanders joining a cult of rabid followers of an eldritch god, or resisting and getting torn apart by them. A bomb descending onto the town, decimating it completely. Emma as the Hive slowly descended on her, ready to make her one of them, with people laughing as if her plight were one big comedic final act. A thousand other possibilities all cramming into her brain, none happy, none hopeful, none ending well.

 “It always ends like this?” Emma’s hand drifted up to Paul’s resting on her shoulder and clutched it. “With everyone just dying?”

 “In the ones we’ve seen so far.” Paul gripped her hand tighter back. “There could be a single outcome where everything turns out fine, but I haven’t found it.”

 “That fucking sucks.”

 “Yeah.” Paul chuckled softly, without amusement. Or maybe a little amusement, at how ridiculous the situation was. Emma sure found it so. Hatchetfield, with no happy ending whatsoever. Hatchetfield, always sure to end in misery and destruction. If you asked Emma, it was fucking absurd. Absurd to the highest degree.

 “It’s a pity, isn’t it?” Paul said.

 “Yeah,” Emma intoned. “Yeah, it is.”

 They were in the Black and White, and then, they weren’t.

In the Wiggly Commercial Song, Uncle Wiley sings that Wiggly is “friends with all the elves” and later we get Joey and Lauren as elves in Santa is going to Highschool.

Does this mean that Santa is also an AU that Wiggly already took over or is it a hint at the fact that Wiggly’s greatest allies in Black Friday are two other characters played by Joey and Lauren later on in the musical?

Tgwdlm felt like a humorous take on zombie movies and their tropes. Black Friday feels like a takedown of humanity’s inherently selfish and violent nature and how easily they can be swayed and made to follow. It’s also a scathing review of the American government and capitalism and religion. It’s not the take I expected from the group that made multiple songs about dysentery, but it’s the take I got and I’m really not sure how I feel about it.
