    Summary

    April turns her attention back to the debate to distract herself from the way the sound of Sterling's laugh sets her blood on fire. 

    “Do you think any of these imbeciles even know how to craft a comprehensive piece of legislation?”

    Sterling rolls her eyes. “Call me when you’re elected to congress, then.”

    “Don’t worry, I will.”

    “Ooh, can’t wait.”

    April knows that Sterling is being sarcastic, but there’s a shine in her eyes and her mouth is still frustratingly smiling and God, April wants.
    ___

    The long, arduous, and unexpected journey of how April Stevens fell in love with political organizing. And also Sterling Wesley.

    Summary

    “That’s the power of theater,” she says dramatically, “it finds a way of getting its hooks in you.”

    That makes Martha laugh a little, which is nice to see, a little warmth settling in Shelby’s stomach at the ability to make someone smile, even now, even here. She tries not to think about how and why she knows the lyrics to that specific song, how her parents would have sent her away far sooner if they knew about the night she and Becca had secretly streamed all the musicals Shelby wasn’t allowed to see, Rent and Mamma Mia! and Hairspray and Chicago with all their homosexual sinners and children out of wedlock and racial politics and adulterous murder, but with songs that made Shelby stare in awe and climactic moments that made her cry and long to be able to get up on stage and no holds barred belt one of those leading lady songs, even if it was from a show that didn’t have “appropriate themes.”

    ---

    Or, Shelby Goodkind learning to embrace her identity as a musical theater gay.

    Summary

    She says to Andromache, “I like the way they do eggs in this century.”

    “Quynh,” Andromache says again, like it’s the only word she knows.

    “Andromache.” Quynh reaches for Andromache’s glass and takes a gulp of orange juice. She makes a face. “I don’t like the way they do juice, though. All that added sugar.”
