Friendship is Thicker Than Blood

So, I braved two five hours bus rides and getting up crazy early this morning (I hate when there are two 6 o'clocks in the same day) and you know what?

Rent was so totally worth it! The show was amazing and the cast! Anthony and Adam were brilliant, I knew they would be, but Anthony was even more spastically adorable than usual and Adam was...ZOMC, only feet away from me and awesome and yeah...*still swoony*
And the Maureen was the craziest chick ever and I love her (got her autograph!). And Angel? Baby, Angel was fierce and fabulous and is the origin of our group's new "Drumstick cross against EVIL". Anthony signed my program (I could start up a shop with all my autographs from that fantastic man), but *sadface* Adam did not stage door. So, instead of having him sign my shirt, I just told the stage manager to give it to him. Really, the point of it was I wanted Adam to see that his lyrics and his work really mean something to me because I know when people love my work and they tell me, I get all happy and I want Adam to be happy too.

One thing niggled. I'm sitting there, watching the show that brought the UFF together and yet, we're all broken apart. Alex is with Nina in one camp, with Aubrey and Evie in another and I've got a tenuous grasp on all of them, hoping somehow we might be about to fix what was...well, rent. I've never felt more like Mark.

Why am I the witness? Does it mean that it's the end and I'm alone? I'm here. Nowhere.

You're not alone. So long as I'm around, you're not going to be.

Much as I tried not to believe it for a very long time, me and Aubrey and Evie were not well for years before any splits happened.
It's never been like that for me and you.

I don't think it's going to be fixed and honestly, I don't want it to be. I don't want to go back to how it was with them and I doubt the three of us could have a healthy friendship.

But I love you, and you're still my jei if you still want to be.

(We got Adam's signature on your playbill. Didn't get a chance to talk to the stage manager and I'll explain why in a less public venue, okay?)
