Two History Boys take on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

This is one of the Mun’s favorite plays, and this sequence in particular fits Wonderland logic very well

"game and match!"

(Source: ohdeargodwhy)

The Player: We’re more of the love, blood, and rhetoric school. Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can’t give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They’re all blood, you see.

Guildenstern: Is that what people want?

The Player: It’s what we do.

daemon au where rosencrantz and guildenstern only have one daemon between the two of them and they don’t know whose it is or if it’s actually both of theirs

daemon au where they have a daemon each but none of them know who belongs to whom so so switch daemons every other hour

daemon au where one of them is the other’s daemon but they don’t know which of them is the daemon and which is the human

rosencrantz and guildenstern are dead daemon au

Logic At Work — A Guildenstern Fanmix (With Overtures Toward Guildenstern/Rosencrantz)
Tom McRae - Language Of Fools. I cannot use this language of fools / To communicate with you / The things you say to the mark the time of the day / Are calculated to bemuse
Keane - Is It Any Wonder. Sometimes it’s hard to know where I stand / It’s hard to know where I am / Well maybe it’s a puzzle I don’t understand
Andrew Bird - Orpheo Looks Back. And there are places we must go to / To bring these hollow words on back from / You must cross a muddy river / Where love turns to love turns to fear
Splashdown - So Ha. Hot-tempered and legally disturbed / I’m realizing that I am chronically spaced / As long as I’m kept from laying hands on a weapon / Well then I think I’m okay / Be quiet I just need hear myself / Think
Sunset Rubdown - The Empty Threats Of Little Lord. Podiums as high as the gallows are low / Swing low / Swing low / Swing low
Zero 7 - In The Waiting Line. Ah and I’ll shout and I’ll scream / But I’d rather not have seen / And I’ll hide away for another day
Death Cab For Cutie - Stable Song. We’ll rest easy justified / Suffered a swift defeat / I’ll endure countless repeats
Essex Green - Elsinore. I’m stuck on the rainy side of Elsinore / Picking fights and talking back / And I just wanna hold you tight / And listen long

Jim Noir - I’m Me You I’m Yours. I'm confused / I’ve got words I’d like to use / But they’ve all been said before / So I’m gonna use them all
Andrew Bird - Nomenclature. Just think of the lives you could swap with your own / While you’re selling you’re coats / You’re sewing your own / And though it’s not the easy way / Sometimes we’ve got to pay to play
Death Cab For Cutie - Crooked Teeth. I’m a war / Of head versus heart / And it’s always this way / My head is weak / My heart always speaks / Before I know what it will say 
Regina Spektor - Reading Time With Pickle. But love is the answer to a question / That I’ve forgotten / But I know I’ve been asked / And the answer has got to be love

Iron & Wine - Boy With A Coin. A boy with a coin he crammed in his jeans / Then making a wish he tossed in the sea 
Rie Fu - Life Is Like A Boat. We are all rowing the boat of fate / The waves keep on coming and we can’t escape / But if we ever get lost on our way / The waves would guide you through another day
XTC - I’d Like That. I’d like that (what would you like?) if we could float away in bed / I’d like that (what would you like?) if I could row your heart and head

GUIL: The truth is, we value your company, for want of any other. We have been left so much to our own devices—after a while one welcomes the uncertainty of being left to other people’s.
PLAYER: Uncertainty is the normal state. You’re nobody special.
GUIL: But for God’s sake what are we supposed to do?!
PLAYER: Relax. Respond. That’s what people do. You can’t go through life questioning your situation at every turn.
GUIL: But we don’t know what’s going on, or what to do with ourselves. We don’t know how to act.
PLAYER: Act natural. You know why you’re here at least.
GUIL: We only know what we’re told, and that’s little enough. And for all we know it isn’t even true.
PLAYER: For all anyone knows, nothing is. Everything has to be taken on trust; truth is only that which is taken to be true. It’s the currency of living. There may be nothing behind it, but it doesn’t make any difference so long as it is honoured. One acts on assumptions. What do you assume?

Rosencrantz: Do you think Death could possibly be a boat?

Guildenstern: No, no, no… Death is “not.” Death isn’t. Take my meaning? Death is the ultimate negative. Not-being. You can’t not be on a boat.

Rosencrantz: I’ve frequently not been on boats.

Guildenstern: No, no… What you’ve been is not on boats.

ros and guil kissing

ros and guil kissing in a moment of fear and uncertainty, a dry press of lips that comes and goes in an instant, but it is reassuring, it is touch. “you and i are both here.

and its the one thing they don’t question

Guildenstern: It’s autumnal.
Rosencrantz (examining the ground): No leaves.
Guildenstern: Autumnal - nothing to do with leaves. It is to do with a certain brownness at the edges of the day… Brown is creeping up on us, take my word for it… Russets and tangerine shades of old gold flushing the very outside edge of the senses… deep shining ochres, burnt umber and parchments of baked earth — reflecting on itself and through itself, filtering the light. At such times, perhaps, coincidentally, the leaves might fall, somewhere, by repute. Yesterday was blue, like smoke.
