#the secret garden

With the quarantine, I’ve been listening to a lot of less popular musicals, and I LOVE THEM!

A few I’ve really liked so far are:

-Jekyll and Hyde (the Andrew Warlow version NOT the David Hasselhoff one)

-Chess (“Pity the Child” is awesome!)

-The Civil War (“If Prayin’ Were Horses” breaks my heart every time)

-The Secret Garden (“Lily’s Eyes” is my favorite)

-Chorus Line (not really unpopular, just less well known in my generation)

Out of all of these, Jekyll and Hyde is my favorite! I could go on and on about it!! The way Anthony Warlow is able to go back and forth between Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’s voices is insane! And all of the emotion in the second act leaves my crying while trying to do my math.

When Mary Lennox was sent to Misselthwaite Manor to live with her uncle everybody said she was the most disagreeable-looking child ever seen. It was true, too. She had a little thin face and a little thin body, thin light hair and a sour expression. Her hair was yellow, and her face was yellow because she had been born in India and had always been ill in one way or another.

- Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

“In each century since the beginning of the world wonderful things have been discovered. In the last century more amazing things were found out than in any century before. In this new century hundreds of things still more astounding will be brought to light. At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done, then they begin to hope it can be done, then they see it can be done—then it is done and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago. One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts—just mere thoughts—are as powerful as electric batteries—as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in you may never get over it as long as you live.”

“When Mary found this garden it looked quite dead,” the orator proceeded. “Then something began pushing things up out of the soil and making things out of nothing. One day things weren’t there and another they were. I had never watched things before and it made me feel very curious. Scientific people are always curious and I am going to be scientific. I keep saying to myself, ‘What is it? What is it?’ It’s something. It can’t be nothing! I don’t know its name so I call it Magic. I have never seen the sun rise but Mary and Dickon have and from what they tell me I am sure that is Magic too. Something pushes it up and draws it. Sometimes since I’ve been in the garden I’ve looked up through the trees at the sky and I have had a strange feeling of being happy as if something were pushing and drawing in my chest and making me breathe fast. Magic is always pushing and drawing and making things out of nothing. Everything is made out of Magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden—in all the places. The Magic in this garden has made me stand up and know I am going to live to be a man. I am going to make the scientific experiment of trying to get some and put it in myself and make it push and draw me and make me strong. I don’t know how to do it but I think that if you keep thinking about it and calling it perhaps it will come. Perhaps that is the first baby way to get it. When I was going to try to stand that first time Mary kept saying to herself as fast as she could, ‘You can do it! You can do it!’ and I did. I had to try myself at the same time, of course, but her Magic helped me—and so did Dickon’s. Every morning and evening and as often in the daytime as I can remember I am going to say, ‘Magic is in me! Magic is making me well!’”

She says, `Once when I was givin’ th’ children a bit of a preach after they’d been fightin’ I ses to ‘em all, “When I was at school my jography told as th’ world was shaped like a orange an’ I found out before I was ten that th’ whole orange doesn’t belong to nobody. No one owns more than his bit of a quarter an’ there’s times it seems like there’s not enow quarters to go round. But don’t you–none o’ you–think as you own th’ whole orange or you’ll find out you’re mistaken, an’ you won’t find it out without hard knocks.” `What children learns from children,’ she says, 'is that there’s no sense in grabbin’ at th’ whole orange–peel an’ all. If you do you’ll likely not get even th’ pips, an’ them’s too bitter to eat.’“

Okay, so I got tagged by @creepercraftguy to do this. I’m gonna be honest, I was NOT expecting to be tagged, so now I’m here. Besides, it’s been a while since I posted, and I got nothing else to do, so let’s get started. ——————- Top 3 ships: First one and I’m already stumped….I don’t really look into ships that much, and I don’t really have any favorite ships. I might just choose 3 ships that I know, so I have something here. Okay….**thinking noises**….Well, Soruko ( Sora x Yoruko ) from SDRA2’s pretty nice. I’m working on some characters that are inspired by that ship, so that’s nice. Okay. Another ship that’s pretty cute is Marxolor ( Marx x Magolor ) from the Kirby series, so I guess I’ll place that here as well. This part is getting a bit too large, so I’m just gonna quickly put SameWada ( Samekichi x Wadanohara ) from WatGBS so I can move on to the next part- ——————— Lipstick or Chapstick?: I usually use ChapStick, I just feel its easier for me to access. That doesn’t mean I don’t use Lipstick, though! I just don’t use it as often, plus ChapStick’s more adjustable to wear. ———————- Last song I listened to: I think by “song” you mean someone singing words, correct? Well in that case, the last song I listened to was “The End” by TryHardNinja. I like to go listen to the songs in the Batim Fandom at times. ———————– What shows are you currently watching?: None of the sort. I don’t really watch TV that often. Sorry for the inconvenience of this answer. —————– Last film I watched: If I remember correctly, the last film I watched was “The Rise of Skywalker”. I’m not a big Star Wars fan like some of my family members, but I will admit the movie was pretty good. ———————- Currently Reading: I would say that I’m currently reading the Bleach Series, but since quarantine intervened and schools are closed, I currently reading “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I’m also currently reading “The Kids Aren’t Alright”, but that story is on Wattpad. I’m enjoying it so far. ———————— That’s everything, correct? I hope it is. Okay, so since I don’t know many people here, I’m just gonna tag 2 people I follow. @formalmess and @snazzy-suit , I assign you thee. However, feel free to take your time!
