So a little over a week ago I tried to do this meme:

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn on your music player and put it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble related to each song that plays.
You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble
You start when the song starts, and stop when it's over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

Now, the length of a song equals about a sentence at my writing speed, but here are my drabbles/sentences anyway:

10 Panic(!) drabbles - sort of. )

Yes, I'm a musical theatre geek. That's not the point. Or actually maybe it is. Anyway, I've spent all week obsessing about this goddamn RENT AU. It took me most of that time to come up with a cast list I'm mostly happy with, and I'm still stuck on Benny. :P But even so, this thing has clearly got its claws firmly implanted in my brain. I have listened to the entire Original Broadway Cast Recording three times in the past two days. I think it may end up being my Big Bang fic instead of the somewhat self-indulgent Andy/Spencer/Brendon kink!epic I had planned.

I'm maybe kinda freaking out though. I've never written this type of AU where you're fitting the characters into an existing storyline before, and I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing. How close should I keep it to the original play? How do I resolve the ensemble cast into a coherent POV? How do I fit the emotionality of a musical into a fic without it seeming ridiculous? Who the hell is Benny???

So, um, anyone want to handhold/cheerlead via email/IM while I freak out about how the fuck I'm going to textually render La Vie Boheme?
