-sneaks into this thread-
HELO YES I WAS OBSESSED WITH THIS MUSICAL AS A TINY INTERNET VIRGIN I've seen it live twice now and I used to have the DVD of the 'movie'. I also read a whole lot of fic on various pre-ffnet sites.
(Also Macavity was my first LJ comm RP muse?? Ohgod I think back at it and cringe so hard, but we've all gotta start somewhere, right?)
Also someone rec me some good fics it's been a long-ass time but my Body is Ready. I think my first terrible unfinished CATS fic is still on FFnet somewhere?
I TOO HAVE SEEN IT LIVE TWICE >:D i've still never gotten around to buying a copy of the DVD, but i wore out two VHS tapes :')
FIC! FIIIIIC!!!!! unfortunately my digging hasn't unearthed too-too many gems but here are a few that i liked
stranger by lynndyre--gen, tugger/mistoffelees
the beginnings of a conjuring cat by china606--gen, tugger/mistoffelees
i opened up ffnet to go digging in there and immediately died because what even is that layout, so no dice there, sorry
Heres one u should read its gr8
that's my fic he just recced, it's uhHH... teen, no ships rn but onesided coricopat/misto/tantomile, cats are significantly more humanized but YOU DON'T HAVE TO READ THAT IF IT DOESN'T STRIKE YOUR FANCY!!
Its the good good
Also more pounce screeches
Spoiler: Pouncival Is The Smol
I'm imagining Pounce as pretty short, cause in the movie he was I THINK the smallest boy, not sure? But he was p tiny. So probs about 5'4", 5'5" at most.
He's p squishy - big thighs, wide torso, but he's obs not over weight bc dance and he's gotta be relatively beefy in certain aspects too. Soft and round face of the best boy.
He's the type to wear tshirts and jeans, and tights and a sweater as two separate clothes. Probably lots of baggy stuff when not in dance ala shyness. Pounce probably works at some small, private owned store of some kind - something that he wouldn't interact with many people at.
Listens to whatever everyone else listened too, very flexible music tastes. Can't drive, probs either too scared to try or hasn't had a good chance to do it.
Probably his relationship with Tumble is a little not healthy at first, considering Tumble and Plato peer pressure him into shit. They get closer over the years, mayhaps childhood friends who were very rough housing kind.
Eventually Tumble gets a crush on him and stops getting him into trouble without thinking first. By the time Pounce realizes he can't get with Misto he's probs heartbroken, though he still likes him anyway.
Tumble sees his chance and takes it after many hug and cry sessions. Mungo is probs a rebound crush, as he's most likely older than him but Mungo is more than happy to be his friend.
Tumble most likely eventually just asks him out or something, enter confused and oblivious Pouncival. It probably takes them fucking forever to get together, and when it happens it's very slow and kind of awkward for a while.
I mean, they were best friends but Pounce has had so many crushes he's never thought this far and Tumble never actually got taken seriously by dates and/or they never ended well. Lots of embarrassment and stumbling on each side.
More to come later probs
jemima is lovely and I Die
JEMIMA/VICTORIA IS THE GOOD SHIT
i love jem's lil spiky collar, she's precious
oh lord I had a really super edgy idea about her parentage that I'm too embarrassed to put in the rp thread
what if she was Macavity's offspring by Demeter. I was mostly just thinking that cause of the colors but like...maybe that's why she's so curious and perceptive - her mom's awareness combined with Macavity's spooky almost-supernatural bullshit. And then thematic because she'd be a good and gentle cat sired by the evilest cat of all!!! idk man lol
THAT'S MY HEADCANON HAHA
(i headcanon her and misto half-siblings--same dad, different mothers)
headcanon high hive.
lol okay now I feel less silly
it would be cute if she and misto were half-siblings, since they're close but I'm not really interested in pairing them :P
plus this means jemima can be raised by gay power couple bombalurina and demeter and that's the Good Shit
I have my own headcanons about parentages and things but none of them match with anyone else's I've seen in this thread and everyone else knows way more about the musical than me so
NOTHING IS CANON ALL IS GUESSWORK
my headcanons or anyone else's aren't nore or less valid than yours, do you wanna share maybe? :D :D :D they fuel me
@TwoBrokenMirrors IMPLYING THAT @cassikat DOESN'T HAVE THREE DIFFERENT CATS FAMILY TREE VARIANTS
CALLOUT FOR CASSIKAT, HAS TOO MANY GOOD IDEAS, CAN'T STICK TO ONE FAMILY TREE
hahaha uh okay they're kinda simplistic really and I have to credit some of it to my ex, @IvyLB, @Codeless and @Loq but
Old Deuteronomy + Grizabella = Munkustrap
Old Deuteronomy + ?? = Rum Tum Tugger
Bustopher Jones + Grizabella = Misto
Jellylorum + ??? = Victoria
Gus The Theatre Cat + ??? = Grizabella & Jellylorum
Tugger's into Misto in large part because Misto plays hard to get
And of course Bombalurina and Demeter are dating (having both once dated Macavity) but Jellylorum tends to hang out with them as part of the gossip crusade
HOW DARE YOU, I HAVE FIVE
THESE ARE QUALITY HEADCANONS!! munkustrap and tugger being deuteronomy's kids was announced as canon in one of the UK productions too! i think it might have been the 2014 revival but i'm not sure :0
misto playing hard to get only making tugger more interested is The Good Shit, yes yes >:D
also yesss gossip squad
my goodness i didn't even know that. i feel like i have a good headcanon eye now. xP
Of course him being the cat clan patriarch and cats being as they are means probably a good number of them are related to him in SOME way
