    Stop what you're doing.

    It has come to Munkustrap's attention that many cats in this Junkyard don't know how to use a chair correctly. There's a shameful amount of lounging across arm rests (Tugger, Bomba), flowing off onto the floor (Plato), perching weirdly right up on the back in defiance of physics (Cassandra, Mistoffelees), hanging around upside-down (Etcetera, Pounce), and general bonelessness (looking at you, Alonzo).

    So he'd like to demonstrate the correct and proper menthod of sitting in a chair.

    Thank you, that will be all.

    (... look, this stance isn't going to maintain itself!)

    José Raúl Mangual has been covering Munkustrap while Devon McCleskey has been off sick! Sadly it's back to the booth for them for a little while, but at least that implies the cast is gradually getting back on its feet after this batch of illnesses.

    Love those shots of them and Tugger being adorable in the curtain call—and not only do I spot Sean McManus covering Skimbleshanks in the background, but I believe these are our first photos of Simon Lawrence, who was brought in to cover Deuteronomy after the lack of covers meant John Anker Bow (Gus) had to play Deut and Gus as a split track.

    2021 US tour; posted by José 19/01/22, though the photos are clearly from several nights ago, since Sean was back to his regular role as Tumblebrutus on the 15th.

    Munkustrap: you enter a dungeon and on the far side of the room you see a door

    Bombalurina: can I seduce the door?

    Munk: no you cannot

    Tugger: can I seduce the door?

    Munk: also no

    Mistoffelees: can I punch Tugger?

    Munk rolls a die before nodding: Tugger, you take four damage

    Tugger: well I transform into a beaver!

    Munk: ...you do that?

    Bomba: now can I seduce the door?

    Munk: still no.

    Misto: I punch Tugger again

    Munk rolls the die again: three more damage

    Mungojerrie: can I fight the door?

    Munk: no!

    Rumpleteazer: I also would like the fight the door

    Munk: no one can fight the door!

    Mungo: I FIGHT THE DOOR

    Munk: you lose.

    Mungo: I fight you

    Munk: 'Jerrie, take a walk

    Macavity: is the door dead or alive?

    Munk, exasperated: it's a door!

    Mac: can I enslave its soul?

    Munk: how would you- no!

    Coricopat: can I build a better door?

    Munk: ...do you want to build a better door?

    Corico: I acquire lumber from the surrounding forest

    Munk rolled the die, annoyed: okay, you do that

    Victoria: is the door locked?

    Munk: no, it isn't

    Vic: I open the door

    Munk: you do so! inside is one small treasure chest

    Bomba: I seduce the treasure chest

    Munk: NO!

    Devon McCleskey (US tour Munkustrap) is turning 24, and Lauren Louis (his Demeter) sends him love - from their various quarantine locations! Sundered, alas, from each other and the Junkyard by COVID.

    But still cute. In fact, Lauren's almost handing us a role-reversal AU here! Demeter gets to protect Munkustrap for once... yes, very nice.

    Angst;; aka blood/gore warning

    Macavity and Munkus angst

    Macavity going absolutely apesht when he attacks the tribe,, harming everyone in some way or another,,

    No one’s spared not even kittens,, (they get mental scars;; nothing too bad msybe a few cuts/scrapes)

    Munkustrap gets hit the worst,, Macavity sees his younger brother and emotions get the better of him. Flashbacks to his father disowning him,, munkus being appointed the new protector,,

    Even while clinging to life Munk couldn’t find it in himself to be angry at Mac. They were brothers after all, Munk looked up to him ever since they were young.

    After Macavity leaves Munk dies peacefully in his little brother’s arms. Tugger is covered in his Munk’s blood, the only time this outspoken cat has ever been silent.

    Demeter and Jemima were by Munkustrap’s side until the end. The tribe lost their protector, they lost brother, a son, and a father.

    Macavity sits in the shadows, fur littered in fresh cuts and old scars. His chest heaved as he stood staring at the group of cats mourning their loss. As hard as he might, he couldn’t keep the tears from falling. He killed his little brother. The one he promised-a lifetime ago- to protect. It was his fault. All his fault.

    Dear Everlasting Cat,

    Please grant me the strength, balance, and core stability to equal Gruberstrap's squatting abilities.

    That's all I pray for.

    Well ... maybe some singing abilities, while you're at it.

    This one reminds me of a personal story of mine called, “Victoria Sings.” Anyway, it’s a very beautiful artwork of them!

    Macavity: Hmm. You have bones.

    Munkustrap: Yes, I'm aware of this. I do not like the fact you felt the need to point it out.

    Macavity: *standing over a dead body, holding a bloody knife* Look, I know this looks very... uh... *absently snaps fingers three times* Oh what's the word...

    Munkustrap: "Bad"?

    Macavity: No, not bad... I mean, yes bad, obviously, but... uh... it's like "convicting" but it's not? You know? Well anyway... Ugh, this is gonna be bothering me all day until I think of it.

    Cassandra: so, Rumpleteazer. Now that we are friends, could you show me how cats have... fun?

    Rumpleteazer: Cass, it's different for everyone. My mum likes to knit and train mice to sing or something, my dad likes to do his job. Tugger likes to annoy Munkustrap, Etcetera likes to help Tugger annoy Munkustrap, Misto likes to annoy Tugger AND Munkustrap at the same time...

    Rumpleteazer: come to think of it, me and Jerrie like to annoy Munkustrap too.

    Cassandra, nodding: I see now. The key to happiness is annoying Munkustrap.

    Okay so, I have like five different headcanons and universes, but this is my "main" about the Deuteronomy family that does at least somewhat work with “canon” cats

    So. Deuteronomy and Grizabella were mates but with a very open relationship. Macavity is the oldest child, but Griz is not his mother. Idk who is but I don't think it's anyone in the junkyard.

    Deut and Griz are Munkustrap's parents, and Munk is a little younger than Mac and thus had to spend a lot of time with his older brother (it wasn't pleasant time).

    Griz is the mother of Demeter but Deut is not the father, the father is unknown. Tugger's father is Deut but Griz is not the mother, once again idk who the mother is. Might be someone in the junkyard this time. Tugger and Demeter are close in age and despite not being actually related they see each other as siblings. Tugger kinda sees Macavity as his brother, but Demeter does not (both because she isn't related to him but also because he was barely present and he left shortly after her birth).

    The role of being a protector was originally intended for Macavity, since he was the best fighter/the most interested in fighting, and he was gradually trained to this. Munkustrap was more interested in storytelling and that was what he was going to be, until Mac suddenly left and they passed the protector training onto Munk. This kinda failed for several reasons, because a) his training was a lot more stressed than it should have been and he never properly learned to take time for himself/how to prioritize/ask other cats for help but instead felt he had to do everything himself b) everyone was upset by Griz and Mac abandoning them, meaning Deut was pretty absent during this time and didn't properly check up on his son + probably a lot of other things (like no one actually making sure this is what Munk wants) but yeah.

    And then not too long after, a teenage Demeter starts a relationship with Mac and leaves the junkyard, being gone for like, a year or two.

    Deuteronomy never really treated his children as his children, but rather like any members of the tribe. While he obviously loved them, he wasn't really a father, and Grizabella didn't care much about her family and was too busy with herself to be a mother, meaning both Mac and Munk essentially grew up without parents. Tugger and Demeter, while not having Deut as a father, at least had Munk who basically became a mix of older brother/father to them and especially Tugger wasn't really affected by Grizabella leaving. So all in all, Tugger and Demeter had a decent childhood, at least compared to their older brothers.

    There's a lot more but this is what I currently had in mind. This was written on my phone without any kind of proof reading so I apologise if it doesn't make much sense

    Munkustrap: But aren't you a damsel in distress?

    Bombalurina: I'm a damsel, I'm in distress...

    Bombalurina: I can handle this! Have a nice day!
