You can also change the light Brighter, darker As you want
Skimble pointing to Victoria and Cassandra on the “Brighter, darker” moment is such a nice touch

Tell me all about revival Gus and Deuteronomy after you complete your essay.
Okay!
Deuteronomy was always watching Gus because they existed through each others previous lives, and he’s on his ninth and final life right now so he chose that life to spend with his dear theatre cat
They have many kids: Asparagus Jr and JellyLorum were conceived through magic, GrizaBella and MunkuStrap were adopted, Macavity and Tugger were made with a surrogate, and CoricoPat and Tantomile were adopted.
(Why? Asparagus Jr and JellyLorum are always Gus’ kids to me. Macavity, Tugger, and MunkuStrap are always Deuteronomy’s kids to me. GrizaBella is young in the revival and she is silver like MunkuStrap. CoricoPat and Tantomile clearly have some connection to Deut.)
Gus has dementia these days. The only cats he fully recognizes are JellyLorum and Old Deuteronomy. He mistakes MunkuStrap for GrizaBella and Tugger for Macavity and the two of them have a hard time being near him because they can’t stand seeing him like that. He doesn’t remember Asparagus Jr, CoricoPat, or Tantomile at all.
Tugger, JellyLorum, and MunkuStrap have serious grudges against GrizaBella. They blame her for their father having to go through an extra year of suffering because she just showed up and got chosen instead of him. They don’t hold a grudge against Deuteronomy because they know that The Everlasting Cat has a very large role in choosing who gets to be reborn so it wasn’t entirely him.
Gus is reborn the next ball. He doesn’t sing at all this time and his children preform his plays. He doesn’t fully understand what’s happening until he’s just about to go to The Heaviside Layer. He blinks in recognition and asks Deut what’s happening. Deuteronomy explains it to him and Gus admits that he doesn’t want to leave everyone. Deut reassures him that it’s for the best and they embrace once more before he goes. Gus is reborn as Peter, the son of Asparagus Jr and SkimbleShanks.
Gus named Tugger “Firefrorefiddle” and he was known as that until he found his true Jellicle name of “Rum Tum Tugger”. Tugger was his favorite and he inherited a lot of Gus’ eccentrics.
Macavity was watching in the shadows when Gus left. Even he was glad that his suffering ended.
Deuteronomy convinced Gus to try and be reborn. He knew that he didn’t want his life of theatre to end there.
Of course I turned all of this into angst. All well, enjoy!

While I'm on the topic of other musicals.....
Skimbleshanks and Balaga from Great Comet radiate the same energy
Like fun driver man drinking it up and everyone's like "whose that guy who drives the thing?" "Ah yes, it's our crazy uncle"

Watching Skimbleshanks in a language you can’t understand is a whole experience of listening to a jumble of words until someone screams ‘TEA’ and the name of some alcoholic drink.

The most infuriating line in Cats Warsaw?
Definitely this one form "Skimbleshanks: The Railway Cat":
"Gdzie Semafor, nasz Semafor?
Imię skłania do metafor"
("Where's Semafor, our Semafor?
[his] name tends to metaphors")
Semafor means semaphore...

Do you have any good headcanons for good ol Skimbleshanks?
I have a few one of which I am going to put in one of my stories (or have been thinking about very much to put in said story)
1. Skimbleshanks is the one almost everyone goes for advice. It doesn’t matter if it’s for relationships or how to do solve a problem, everyone will ask him how to fix it. Especially with the younger kits (and his own), he takes his time to be patient and listen to their problems. I mean, I can see Tugger and Munkustrap having sibling problems and both of them ask Skimble for advice since they respect him. And Skimble tells them to look at it from each other’s perspective which helps them a lot.
2. Skimble is very punctual and gets really irritated when he is late. Even more so, he has a pocket watch that was given to him by a mentor or Jenny because they know how punctual he likes to be. I would also say he is one of the few Jellicles who can tell time on a ‘human’ clock since his job on the train needs him to know what time it is. 
3.He is the father of Mungo and Teazer. This is one of the many hcs I have for Rumple and Teazer. I don’t really have much to add to this one since it’s pretty common.
4. Skimble is a family man. I used this hc in one of my holiday fics in December 2020. So this can be applied to both Skimble as a cat and a human. Skimble is the type of man who loves his family no matter what. When he travels, he makes sure to pick up trinkets that he knows his family would love. He even tries to come home during the holidays and birthdays but there’s no guarantee so he’ll make it. When he can’t come home, Skimble sends a huge package with a card. 
5. The kittens always get excited when Skimbleshanks comes to the Junkyard. Even though they go to Gus for fictional stories, they go to Skimble for his adventures from the train. That’s how they know all the words of his song.
