There's an entire multiverse of spider-people like every universe has to have at least one spider-person (not actually spider-people but like superheroes with spider powers) and I'm now part of this spider-army and some kind of "totem" and there is this group that wants to eat my energy and all our energies so there's this multiversal war

Okay okay cool cool cool cool co

And my GED scores are officially scored and wow. That's something I never actually thought I'd end up doing. Now I get to look at schools for the winter session since it's too late for fall enrollment.

Look at me getting my life together.

[Percy]
Seriously though, thank you.

And I sent the scores to you since I know you need it for...whatever official reason you'd need them given the whole paying for it and school thing so I can keep working for you.

The house got pretty rattled by all the dragon and earthquakes and there's some bad cracks in the foundation. I don't think it's safe to stay in right now, so I've checked into a hotel until it can be repaired.

Initially I had not thought there was anything odd happening when my charity was getting more people coming to us for assistance. However, after talking with a few women that have come to us, I find out a few shelters have closed recently because of buildings being bought. I don't like the sound of shelters closing down, but I will not turn anyone away that comes to us. It just means more work for us.

Which brings up a topic we should discuss.

There are definitely times when I am relieved I'm not on social media like Twitter all that much and that I'm not a well known theatre name outside of Orange County. Because the entitlement you see in people is absurd. Yes, I understand the planning it can take to get to New York to see a show on Broadway. Yes, I understand wanting to see a performer you really like or that 'big name' and finding out they aren't performing that day can be disappointing. But that gives you no right to then harass them on Twitter for daring not to be at the performance. Actors are people, and this is live theatre, which means that life happens and you are not entitled to an explanation of illness or family emergency. Get a refund if you're that annoyed (even if that's ridiculous as well because of the very nature of theatre and it's not just one person and you never know who you might discover in an understudy) but don't attack people on Twitter or social media and expect not to get called out.

Dieu.

Well, it appears that even when I am not in Orange County, if I am supposed to go see a show I've already performed in, I somehow get pulled into actually performing instead.

Why yes, Armand, Percy and I did go to New York this past weekend for the one night only concert-staged reading of The Scarlet Pimpernel. And yes, I did end up having to fill in for the role of myself. Which was certainly something given the minor differences and then new songs involved. Thank goodness the nature of the production allowed me a script if necessary. Though I do feel I was more off book than both Tony Yazbeck and Norm Lewis at the end of the day, even with the minor changes.

Still, now I get to focus on this weekend's performances for Leading Ladies of Orange County, as well as rehearsals for Jesus Christ Superstar which are underway for previews the last weekend of March and running through April.

Pimpernel Outreach will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner for people and families who either have no where to go or cannot afford a meal to make themselves. Anyone who wishes to volunteer to help serve the meal is more than welcome! We also plan to host a Channukah event and Christmas dinner. At both of those we will also give out gifts to those who come. So if anyone wishes to volunteer at either of those events as well, you are more than welcome to!

Preview performances are the weekend of November 23rd, with our official opening being Tuesday, November 27th and the show will run through December 23rd.

Given the ending of the show, I'll understand if you don't wish to sit through run through rehearsals or want to run lines from the end. I'm basically off book as it is but Armand can help if necessary.

I think it's a good thing that I secured some more funding for Pimpernel Outreach recently. I'm sending supplies in relief to those currently affected by the wildfires here in California. Despite everything I'm doing with the non-profit currently, it's never really enough given all the suffering in the world. But sometimes, all you can do is help the people you can. Doing something is always far better than doing nothing.

Now, I had the Royal Ascot horse races on today while I was working, and everything's going along fine, until the final race of the day, there's a horse named Sir Chauvelin. There is a man named Chauvelin in my dreams, so I happened to be entirely amused by this horse's name. The horse was no where near as dark and severe as the Chauvelin in my dreams. Though the horse still came in second in the race, which also amused me.

Ah, it's the little things like this that tend to amuse us the most, isn't it?

There is something rather unsettling about seeing Percy be a more believable Chauvelin than the man himself. Of course that meant I then referred to Chauvelin as Percy as the ruse was on to fool the woman who calls herself "Mademoiselle Guillotine", which we did much to Chauvelin's chagrin as he was thus believed to the Scarlet Pimpernel as there was no one there to vouch for him. Now to wait for the real Percy's arrival once again to get to the rebel camp. Still, there is something about improv in such situations.

In non-Dream related performing - I will be performing the role of Katherine Plumber in Newsies at the La Miranda Theatre from June 1st to the 24th.

Well, the performances this past weekend we a success and look to be something that may happen more frequently. For now though, it's back to auditions.

Though in that vein, just as there is in theatre a need to know what roles you can believably perform and know which ones that - no matter you skill or ability, you simply will not be believable in - the same goes for undercover work in the Dreams. I do not care how much a master of disguise one is, know your limits and accept that you can't pull off all the costumes and will get caught if you try. Such as if you only work with men and the place you are trying to get into is a convent where men are not permitted, under any circumstance.

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 am pleased to announce that on Saturday the twenty-fourth of February, the non-profit that Freya and I have been working on, The Pimpernel Outreach, will be opening. There will be a benefit dinner and silent auction that evening to raise funds. The non-profit is aimed towards helping women and children who are in need of anything from lacking funds for medical treatment, getting them back on their feet, job skills training, help with getting immigration papers in order, and many other things! All are welcome to attend the benefit, information can be found at [insert website here].

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.

I've had visions before. Dreams that came true in one way or another. With the special dreams we all have, that often obscures that other kind so it's hard to see if its vision or something else.

But I've been repeating some of my Dreams. Scenes and conversations, and feelings. The events that led to my leaving the order, certain battles and duels, and more.

They're all linked somehow, I know there's a common thread. I should meditate on it.

And in the latest round of trying to put on a show while in Orange County.... getting props together and prop muskets and rapiers suddenly become actual weapons. And the set piece of the guillotine that's under construction? Now an actual guillotine. Because of course it is. At least we're only in rehearsals and haven't gotten to actually using said props instead of being in production.

I swear, I'm beginning to think I should start a blog on what to expect when putting on shows in Orange County.

It's almost adorable that Chauvelin seems to think that the Pimpernel will turn himself in if I were to ask in order to save my life as my execution date has been set. Let alone that he thinks I'd actually ask such a thing, especially after I already claimed to be the Scarlet Pimpernel during a Revolutionary Tribunal so that the real Pimpernel could continue his work.

Dieu.

At any rate, we're in the last leg for Bandstand. Eight performances in four days and with it being Los Angeles Fleet Week now, all performances are free for active and former military.

Remember the whole sleeping frozen for 25 years thing? We found my kid. She was raised by the Romans and turned into a real monster. But we still tried to help her. I used to be like that, but I changed. And if I can change, anyone can. Especially any daughter of mine.

We got her to realize who she was, and she reformed. But the Gods found out she was alive, and they wanted her dead, since she's supposed to be the one that'll kill 'em all.

They were wrong. They came for my daughter so I killed them.

Poseidon, Discord, Hephaestus, Hades, Demios, Artemis, Athena, and finally the furies. Zeus and Hera were already dead. Hera killed by Zeus and Zeus killed by Hercules.

Didn't think it could get much more exciting than that. Until I tricked Lucifer into taking the Throne of Hell when I was trying to save my mother's soul.

So apparently dream me is a master of disguise, and infiltrated Robespierre's operation in France. I used my position to gain intelligence and which people they were targeting for the guillotine and use it to save said innocent people. I created the Scarlet Pimpernel to help get those people out of France.

And then there is my dear Shovelin who is far too sour and dour and wears entirely too much black. I mean, really! The man could use some color in his wardrobe.

I have to give it to my dream self, he's not one to sit idly by when innocent people are in trouble. He puts his money where his mouth is, which is something that I can greatly respect. He's recruited his friends to help him save people from the Reign of Terror in France. Which obviously would be a death sentence to them if any of them were caught, but he's willing to die to help people.

New year, new set of dreams which admittedly is not all that surprising since I came back. I must say though, Armand will never let me hear the end of it if he were to learn he's the older sibling in this set, or that he sent me to a convent for schooling.

Though meeting Thomas Jefferson in the dreams will make conversations interesting given the mythos around him here.
