    Navaa, I'm trying to think if we know each other. We were around about the same time, but I don't remember if we actually were online at the same time.....

    I think I'm going to end this scene where it is and see what happens when I type it up.

    Oh, yeah, I think I remember you!

    I came onto TWFT about the time RM died. So not quite three years ago, I think.

    Wooo! That's great. I just finished my first year of college. I didn't write much while I was there but I finally picked up a new project over the last week, Weredragon. You?

    PS: Some cross-dressed dude (i think that's a dude from the comments) sings this. Sounds NOTHING like the original. They even cut it down .

    "The black chick" is Mercedes. Also, I'd like to point out that most of the songs for performances are cut down but typically they do the whole thing for albums. I don't think I've heard one yet where the album version was cut down...but I also don't think I've heard one where the original was eight minutes.

    Dammit! I've just decided my next play. What glee should have been, teens with PROBLEMS that have CONSEQUENCES! (if I could get a composer, I could even set it to music!)
