day 5: your favorite luigi lucheni and why
he was my first lucheni and he defined the role for me. he is sardonic, cynical, entertaining, but over the course of the musical you can see that facade shatter slowly and at the end you see a much more human side that the character is hiding to avoid dealing with his horrible actions. serkan brings this out wonderfully and he has an incredible voice to boot.

You don’t have to protect me, I’m not afraid. Please don’t shut me out again, please don’t slam the door, you don’t have to keep your distance anymore. ‘Cause for the first time in forever, I finally understand. For the first time in forever, we can fix this hand in hand.
THE HUMANS DO IT ALL THE TIME, IT MEANS YOU’RE A GOOD BOY
No but I remember Mewtwo in this scene was like “At last we meet. Well met cousin, but on this day I cannot hide my grievances against you and so I have decided that the only recourse is violence, what say you in this matter?”
And then Mew was like “HOLY WHAT THE HECK IS THAT oh it’s my tail! TAIL TAIL TAIL!
Lovely story of the day: I picked up an afternoon shift at the library, and about halfway through, an alum who graduated 20 years ago comes up with his small daughter, saying that she pulled some pieces of paper out of one of the little card catalog drawers no one goes into anymore.
Over the course of a couple months, it looks like two people who didn’t know one another started communicating by leaving notes to each other in the drawers - there were only a few actually there, including a cute poem about a chicken and a “good luck on your finals!”, a “can you believe it’s been two months”, and the most recent…a longer letter essentially saying “it’s been three months, you sound so wonderful, let’s meet”.
The dad wasn’t sure exactly which of two drawers his daughter had investigated, so he put them back in one and was so concerned (bless him; it was so sweet) that he was going to mess things up that he asked me for a pen and paper and wrote the correspondents another note for the other drawer saying he thought they were very sweet and sorry the newest letter might be in the wrong drawer.
