Things I have learned; drowning is a terrible way to die.

But my powers work to phase water out of my lungs when waking up and that was not a party,

So I'm getting up close and personal with Jack Daniels!

So, I dreamed about getting bitten by a spider which feels like it should be totally unremarkable but considering I broke my alarm clock this morning feels like maybe it's not?

[Peggy & Steve]
I maybe also crushed the handle on the bathroom door. I'm really sorry, I don't know what happened. I haven't touched anything else with my hands and have done everything with my elbows as much as possible.

It was too good to hope I'd had the last of these Dreams.

[Marguerite]

It happened again. Similar Dream but different about us being orphaned in pre-Revolution France. No neat stuff this time, though.

Well, it appears I've been adopted by an Ewok. Cute, bit skittish. But he followed me to Pimpernel Outreach and the kids seem to love him. I'm not entirely sure he understands the story that's being read for story time, but he still seems quite taken with it all the same.

Misadventures in trying to make breakfast....

The smoke detector going off while pre-heating the oven. And then trying to make whipped coffee without an electric hand whisk.

Good times, good times. Well, I know how I'm probably spending the weekend now.

So it occurred to me that with everything that happened over the last couple of weeks, the quarantine and my brother turning into a woman, which was the most amusing thing I've ever seen in my life, I never actually introduced myself. So, here I am doing just that. I'm Helen Blackthorn, I'm 23, like making new friends and I'm an exhibit designer at the National History Museum of Los Angeles and it's so good being back to work. I was missing the museum during the shelter in place and was itching to finish the exhibit we were working on when everything closed down.

Woke up this morning to find my prom dress, from the dreams, hanging on the back of my closet door. I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with it since it's clearly a prom dress and clearly from ten years ago. Has anyone else gotten clothes from their dreams that they just can't wear? What have you done with them?

Uncle Steve, Aunt Peggy- i'm guessing that wasn't you. I'm a little old for easter eggs. Still. Thanks. Whoever it was.

Also, uh, how do you know if a dream you had is just a dream or if it's one of those Dreams?

Good thing the Ravager in me had the sense to bring as many of them coins from those mystery boxes to the local pawn shop 'fore the day ended yesterday. I mean, I kept a couple at the house thinkin' I might have 'em melted down for somethin' but turns out those things turned into chocolate.

Jokes on the pawn shop hehe.

I just got woken up by an incessant beeping sound and at first I thought it was my phone or something until I got out of bed and this droid from my dreams rammed itself into my fucking calves. In the dark! Seriously? He seems really happy to see me, but I have no idea what he's trying to say.

All I know is that he's called BB-8 and is my astromech from my most recent dreams and somehow I can understand him in my dreams, but I can't here.

Now what do I do with a droid?

Izzy's starting tonight will be offering meals and treats for pets.

For the moment it's just for cats and dogs, but I'm working on a few idea.

All meals and baked goods are cooked and baked fresh daily.


They are a limited item on Izzy's menu.



All products have been pet tested and approved.

Why couldn't I have attended a law school with a three-year program instead of a four-year program? I need a break. Just a few more months, then the bar exam. I just have to keep reminding myself that I'm almost done.

Anyone else feeling this way about school? Please tell me I'm not alone here.

[Marguerite & Percy]

Any chance we could do something this weekend that has nothing to do with law school or Pimpernel Outreach?

I hate spring ahead cause while I like getting the extra hours of sun during the day, I dislike losing an hour tonight. Sure, I'll be asleep and it's not like I get up early on Sundays anyway, but still. It's the principle of the thing. And yes, I know I probably sound crazy.

Right well, that was a strange dream. It's official, this set of Dreams is officially the one the diverges the most from what is expected. A revolutionary tribunal? Eh, been there before. Even Robespierre being there isn't that odd. But to not only be denounced by my former understudy and Armand's lover, but for Chauvelin to be the one to try and save my life? I.... I have no words. Of course then claiming I believe in France but not the madness that has taken over condemned me to la guillotine, but really. Chauvelin.

But in less odd dream things, the setlist for next weeks performances at the Catalina Bar has been finalized, and because I was able to bring back the Donny Nova band, some of the songs will have a swing band instead of just me and a piano. So I'm even more excited for the performance than I already was.

Set List )

I just got off the phone with my agent, and I will be performing at the Catalina Bar and Grill Jazz Club in Los Angeles March 8th-10th. So what I'm looking for are song requests for what to perform. Below is a list of musicals I've done since graduating high school for an idea, though I'm open to all suggestions be they from different shows, Disney, whatever you have and I'll see if it fits vocally/whatever theme begins to emerge. And yes, Armand. I will make sure that 'Dyin' Ain't So Bad' is on the list.

Turns out my dream boyfriend wasn't actually a criminal. He was an undercover cop. Unfortunately I didn't find out until after he was experimented on kidnapped. He's gone now, like the final gone. I'll never get the chance to apologize for thinking the worst. Or for killing him.

Why can't love lives in the dreams just be simple? Full of love and romance, riding off into the sunset? Isn't that what's supposed to happen in dreams?

You would think four years, minus the time I was here a few years back, doing my classes at Harvard would have prepared me for law school but nope. I am momentarily reconsidering my direction in life. It will probably pass, but just in case, does anyone know what someone who was a philosophy major can do in life?

Well, start a new set of dreams yet again and somehow St. Cyr is even worse than he's been in the previous four sets. That's just....

So to distract myself from that, I decided to look up potential shows that are coming up to audition for and fell down the rabbit hole of YouTube with the actors who 'originated' both Percy and Chauvelin in the musical version/first set of dreams. It was...definitely an experience.

Cut for length, visible to all )

Part of me is actually ashamed of myself for not recognizing this before because of Terrence Mann and I should know this as I declared him my voice husband when I was 8, plus the fact I've seen Doug Sills in other shows. However, mostly I just think I'll never be able to look at Chauvelin the same again.

Thank god it's winter break. I seriously cannot stress how thankful I am that it's break already.

I fucking kissed my damn biology professor thanks to that stupid mistletoe that was running around last week. Thankfully it was on my way out of her final and I'll never have to see her again. But god was that completely embarassing. Ugh.

At least now I can try to relax, right?

I'm Armand St. Just. I'm pretty sure there are some people on here who know my sister Marguerite? But yes, I'm the ne'er do well (not really) little brother who moved back for law school without telling her, if she's brought it up. So...hi.

My dreams are getting more and more interesting. In the first one I had I was just playing in the opera house, but in my last one I was actually a ballerina performing in the corps de ballet. I mean, it's still weird, but now it's kind of in a cool way. Does that make sense?

It seems I've joined the ranks of dreamers in this place. I am -- uncertain how I feel about this.

To begin with, my parents and I were poor. I mean -- we weren't well off in this life, either, but in these dreams it was all rather Dickensian. My mother was a washerwoman and my father was a fisherman (though he died while I was very young). I'm shocked I wasn't a chimney sweep.

After mother's death, a strange woman came to visit me. An old friend of my mother's, it seemed. She claimed that my mother was actually a disinherited heiress to the most wealthy and influential family in London, and that I was eighth in line to be an earl! How fantastic would that be?

I contacted the family to let them know of my existence, and rushed off to tell my apparent paramour. Who is -- lovely, and very beautiful, but also exceedingly aware of her beauty.

She of course laughed me off, as well as what seemed the latest in a long line of marriage proposals. She didn't even touch the chocolates I'd brought her.

To add insult to injury, a member of the family wrote back and told me he'd never heard of my mother, and to never contact them again.

My my, this is all very complicated. I wish my dream self luck in his venture to becoming earl, I suppose.

I think I was fairly successful in convincing the mugger who thought trying to rob the guy with the sword was a good idea that an épée is a valid weapon to use for self defense. He should be happy I prefer the épée over the sabre. I mean, if he'd had a gun I would have just handed everything over but he didn't so I figured I stood a valid chance. But I'm fine, just at the police station pressing charges, in case anyone is worried.

After my dream last night, I had an idea. In my dreams we've all lost a lot of people and so even though the memorial that was supposed to take place after the most recent funeral didn't happen the way it was supposed to, a few of us still took part. We lit those paper Japanese lanterns in memory of someone we'd lost and let them go. I lit mine for my parents, Jenna, Ric, Vicki and Anna.

So, I was thinking, if anyone is interested, we could do something like that. We could plan a date and meet somewhere like the beach one night. I'm gonna start looking for places that sell those lanterns.

While a five show run is rare, it was still well received and the proceeds went to a good cause.

Though not having any auditions lined up is rather strange. It's been nearly a year since I haven't been involved with a show in some capacity or another.

[Percy]
Thank you for accompanying me to the cast part the other night. I hope you enjoyed yourself?



[The performance was a five show run of Finding Neverland, from Dec 27 - Dec 31, as a charity benefit for a children's hospital for anyone who might have gone. She would have posted about it but life got in the way.]

You know, when I came to California from London, I was expecting something distinctly warmer than this. Certainly not a blizzard.

But while I'm stuck inside for the day, I might as well give this thing a try. My cousin says it's a good way to meet people in the area.

So hello, my name is Monty Navarro. I've recently moved over from London, and am currently crashing on my cousin's couch. I have no job prospects yet, so if anyone is in need of a business major, I'm available.

They tell you law school is hard, but I don't think anyone is ever really prepared for just how much work it really is until they've experienced it. It's a really good thing I'm a fast reader and that I have a good study group. And an understanding girlfriend.

Anyway, hi, Valarnet, I'm Sam. I haven't been on this thing in a really long time, so I figured an re-introduction might be a good idea.
