Okay, now choose a fine enby name for yourself from the rude mechanicals in A Midsummer Night's Dream. (No, you can't be Bottom.)

A Midsummer Night's Dream 

listening to an audio-only recording of a live performance is weird because I hear the audience laugh and I'm like wtf did they do :floshed:

A Midsummer's Night Dream 

feeling great kinship here, because when my partner and I were reading the play aloud and got to the lines —

Some man or other must present Wall,
and let him hold his fingers thus,
and through that cranny shall
Pyramus and Thisby whisper.

— we both instinctively agreed on an okay/gottem hand gesture for "thus", and in the production we've watched so far the actor did the same thing and then worked with another actor to turn it to a rude fucking hand gesture.... reminding me of the gloryhole jokes I was cracking when I translated Pyramus and Thisbe for latin class in high school

benjamin britten's music is so fucking good. I'm listening to his midsummer night's dream opera and reading along in the libretto and take notes lol.

A Midsummer Night's Dream 

I will roar you as gently
as any sucking dove ;)


me: nice knuckle tats

my student, who had written "fart" on their knuckles in green pen:

anyone else get weird 1880's anti-catholic propaganda in the mail?? lmao

I'm trying to channel the same raw gender power as bald guys who constantly joke about their baldness

JJBA, lewd, bad, nonconsensual 

So that encounter where Steely Dan puts The Lovers into Joseph's brain, transmitting and amplifying any pain done to Dan's body into Joseph's?

Imagine if, while Jotaro is distracting Dan, he orders him to suck his dick. Joseph has the most intense secondhand orgasm of his life while Silver Chariot and Hierophant Green are shrunk down in his brain trying to fight The Lovers.


I'm a horse girl, but the kind where I need you to ride me hard, wipe me down with a cloth and brush my coat out, and give me a few handfuls of oats

What is/was your gender assigned at school? (Setting aside "girl" and "boy".)

I also found a few recordings of the Benjamin Britten opera adaptation, so I'll have to give one of those a listen.

If anyone has favorite productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream please recommend them!

My professor suggested we watch two; I have a link to one that she recommended but have yet to choose another. My partner and I just finished reading the play out loud so I'm planning on watching those this week.

A Midsummer Night's Dream shitpost 

Bottom: no animals or people were harmed in the staging of this play.
