Welcome, friends, to my new feature From the Page to the Stage. I am really excited about this because basically what I will be doing is "adapting" some of my favorite books into, wait for it, MUSICALS.
So, I'm going to choose actors/actresses I think should play the characters (we'll just pretend they are all really good singers, okay?) and I'm going to pick songs I think fit the story. Maybe do some other stuff. This should be fun.
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead wins the honor of first adaptation because I'm currently re-reading the series and STILL IN LOVE WITH IT. (I'm ignoring everything that has to do with the film adaptation of this book because that was trash.)
My first order of business would be to change the title and give it a more appealing movie poster (I'm not great at graphic design, okay, don't judge me).
(Only some of the main ones)
(I know he's not in the first book but I love him so I'd find a way to incorporate him)
1) RUN AND GO BY TWENTY ONE PILOTS
This song will be in the beginning, when Rose and Lissa are on the run. It's about how they have to stick together and fight all the demons and nightmares.
2) WHO I AM HATES WHO I'VE BEEN BY RELIENT K
This song will be for Rose, when they first return to the academy and realizes that while she kpt Lissa safe, she hadn't been guarding her the way she should have been.
3) SHE WILL BE LOVED BY MAROON 5
This is Mason's song, when he finds out Rose fooled around with Jesse and he helps her out with unraveling the rumors and getting information and whatnot.
4) CREEP BY RADIOHEAD
This is Christian's song about Lissa, when Rose tells him that Lissa never really liked him.
5) TIMSHEL BY MUMFORD AND SONS
This is Rose's song to Lissa, when she starts spiraling into a really dark state of mind.
6) TRUMPETS BY JASON DERULO
This is the lust spell song!!!!!!!!!! If you've read the book, you know what I mean.
7) I CAN'T NOT LOVE YOU BY EVERY AVENUE
Rose and Dimitri, of course. At the end when they realize they can't be together even though they deffffiiiinitely want to be.
This feature was a lot of fun! I know it's kind of silly, but I hope you liked it. It was my first time doing this, so I'm sure it will evolve the more I do it. There were some songs I wanted to include but didn't, and some scenes I wanted to be able to find a good song for but couldn't.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF MY VAMPIRE ACADEMY MUSICAL? DO YOU THINK THE CHARACTERS ARE FITTING? THE MUSIC? I WANNA KNOW!
