  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD
    October 19, 2014, 12:15:33 PM
  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.
    October 14, 2014, 10:53:31 PM
  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD

  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM

Since I seem to add songs in drips and drabs, here have a couple more.  :D

For Kit/Ulric:  Rusted Root - Send Me On My Way - The playful, affectionate tone of the melody and lyrics totally fits Kit and Ulric's relationship.  In addition, the refrain of "Send me on my way" seems to add a sort of bittersweetness, and maybe lends to how Ulric teaches Kit a few things to help her survive out there in the big world before they're permanently separated.

For Phoebe:  Alanis Morrissette - Wunderkind - Of course there's the leadership/rising princess motif, but I think there's also an uncertainty that works well for Phoebe, as well as an innocence that she still manages to hold onto.

Firestarter by Demi Lovato gives me hardcore Phia feels O_O  There is a paragraph I particularly like:

I'm a bad-ass jumping off the moving train
I'm a Jane Bond, putting all them guys to shame
I'm a wild card, and I'm gonna steal your game
You better watch out

Oh, if I were a better artist, I could animate what's in my head. It's pure anime opening credits crack.

So, naturally, I must offer up my choice for Bishoujo Senshi Sera Yuridishi's Opening Theme Song: When You Were Young by The Killers
The Opening Sequence would involve lots of floating, running, jumping, dancing and characters showing off their typical attributes (E.G. Phia in a cute, boyish zoot suit, dancing and lighting tarot cards on fire). And lots of Phoebe looking wistful and Sin looking mysterious over shots of Crystal Tokyo and Arcadia Station.

Especially with the lines:

"They say the devil's water,
it ain't so sweet,
You don't have to drink right now.
But you can dip your feet,
every once in a little while..."

I started making this particular playlist for the summer challenge, so some of the choices would have been a BIT less overplayed if I hadn't wibbled over the final selections for six months XD

More songs!  :D

For Seren:

Pink - Try  Fun fact:  This was the song that cemented Seren in my head, both because it helped solidify her concept for me, and because it made me realize that pre-conversion she was actually a pretty strong person in her own way - strong enough that she could work up the courage to confess her love (but as we all know, it didn't work out XD)

Genesis - Invisible Touch  Seren image song ALL OVER THE PLACE.  Also, pheromone emitters for the win.  :D

Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible  Another Seren image song.  :D 

And a song for Sin:

Emilie Autumn - Time for Tea  Listening to this I realized that this song has Sin just before/during the coup written ALL.  OVER.  IT.  I also love the warping of the little girl nursery rhyme, because it seems like it's Sin's life in a nutshell.  XD

And finally for the Revolutionary Senshi:

Emilie Autumn - By the Sword  There's the general message of valiantly doing good, and the mention of remembering those who came before, and being part of a tight band.  It seems appropriately heroic and bittersweet for the senshi, both the Old and the New Guard.  <3

Emilie Autumn is the best, and yeah, creepy babydoll songs like that are great for Sin. 

ALSO A GENESIS SONG FOR SEREN??? BE STILL MY BEATING HEART.

A song that makes me think of Phoebe and Phia trapped in a busted elevator aboard the Gloriana. Getting bored and mashing up songs while playing anything in reach as an instrument.

Jane Lui and Felicia Day - Waiting for the Prince Who Never Calls (Maroon 5 vs. Disney's Snow White)

Also, this one is for Seraia and the two most important girls in her life: Phoebe and Phia.

Jane Lui - Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars cover)

And this one is for the Psychean Ladyboys!

Icona Pop - All Night (Extended Video)

I have a Musical!AU Headcanon where this whole thing is a musical. Time for Tea would have to get a reprise in the second or third act from the Revolutionary Senshi.

It would actually be like the Nibelungen Cycle on a grander scale, with maybe a musical for each PC.

On a somewhat more sobering note, this is the song that plays in my head when I read a sad scene for these guys. I kinda picture this being played as the last waltz at Phia's Deb Ball, not by the string quartet hired by the Aunties (playing everything Vitamin String Quartet has ever played), but by a handful of Folk musicians that Phia has offered to pay in beer and sammiches. The whole time she dances, she's in tears, because, by all rights, she should be dancing the last dance with her father while her mother, Aunt Jocasta, siblings, and Cousin Seraia watch.

Mmm, I love me some Lindsey Stirling.  <3  It's a good fight song too!

That does make me wonder, do we have a planet/region that can do a Western-inspired theme yet?  Because if not, we've gotta get a moon out there or something that's Western-inspired so we can have bar fights and high noon shootouts.  XD  And awesome hats for everyone!
