  • 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: Autumn Question Times! Cast Masquerade/Trick or Treating! What/Who/When is your character going as?
    October 11, 2014, 08:50:34 AM
  • Ru: Excellent, okay!  <3
    October 06, 2014, 06:36:01 PM
  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?
    September 25, 2014, 06:10:07 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <3
    September 23, 2014, 09:33:18 AM

    September 17, 2014, 04:28:14 PM
  • Alyss: Please do! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:47:31 PM
  • Ingrid: Okay, mind if I improvise?
    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.
    September 15, 2014, 01:02:17 PM
  • Alyss: Pretty! :)
    September 15, 2014, 01:00:15 PM

    September 15, 2014, 11:57:55 AM
  • Ingrid: Does Phoebe have a specific symbolic flower?
    September 15, 2014, 10:50:03 AM
  • Ingrid: Thank you :D
    September 14, 2014, 08:07:45 PM
  • Alyss: Yay for Ingrid arts! <3 They are awesome! ^^ <3
    September 14, 2014, 05:14:20 PM
  • Ingrid: Thank you <333
    September 14, 2014, 08:41:51 AM
  • Pixie: OMG those are awesome! <3
    September 14, 2014, 06:07:41 AM
  • Ru: And Daki is all sorts of gorgeous, and I love her hidey bangs.

[Summer 2013] - The Fires of New Asturia
« on: June 19, 2013, 06:42:40 PM »
An 8tracks mix, for Seraia and Phia.

"Cry, Little Sister"-G Tom Mac (Lost Boys OST)

--Seraia, praying for the strength to complete her mission, as well as praying that her little Cousin Phia (a barely-prepared, pampered child) can take up the torch if she fails.

"Aisling's Song" (The Secret of Kells)

--A plea (from beyond the grave?) for Phia to become Sailor Penthesilea. "You must go where I cannot", urging Phia to move in the circles that the Resistance needs to infiltrate, but only a lady of breeding can. This is where little Phia takes up arms and swears to fight, with or without the locket of Penthesilea.

"Up In The Air"-Thirty Seconds to Mars

--Phia's struggle to be trusted turns dark as the S-Cubed cell she works with forces her to take darker and colder paths to victory, seducing a corrupt official's son and choking him, only to be saved from actual murder by a sniper bullet through a window. The trauma of the moment has blotted the incident and all memory of that summer from her mind, save for nightmares of broken glass and blue faces.

"Sally's Song"-Amy Lee

--The premonitions that came the night before the coup were haunting and spoiled the mood for Phia (who couldn't understand) and Seraia (who couldn't solve the puzzle fast enough). Seraia's suicide left behind a beau, who she already knew would marry a rich heiress and forget her, leaving her with few other ties to worry about.

"Ye Jacobites by Name"-Trad. (as performed by Clam Chowder)

--An old song, repurposed for the Rebellion, comparing the Titanicans to the supporters of the House of Stuart. No one ever accused them of being genre-savvy.

"Haunted"-Poe

--Phia can't seem to escape the loss of her beloved cousin, her family, or the lies she had to tell to survive. Nightmares, depression, and ill health plague her early adolescence, aging her fast and twisting her core into a spiral of bitter hate for the Titanican cause.

"Crazy"-Seal (as performed by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes)

--Phia decides to take the biggest risk of her life; apply to take the graduation exams early. Two weeks in the jungle with a machete, a bayonet knife, and the clothes on her back. There's a whole lot of thinking to do out there and a whole lot of soul searching to do.

"The Power of Goodbye"-Madonna

--Phia says goodbye to her home, her family's grave and all the ugliness that military school heaped on her back. At the same time, she's thrusting herself into adulthood and the possibility that she might meet the same fate as Seraia.

"Knights of Cydonia"-Muse

--"No one's gonna take me alive! The Time has Come to make things right!" Phia launches herself head on into the Revolution, and knows that there is no turning back.

"Beast"-Nico Vega

--There are two kinds of Gentry: the ones who don't give a damn about the Folk, and the ones who do. Phia is latter.

"March of Cambreadth"-Heather Alexander

--While in disguise and helping a mother search for her sons, Coppelias storm the ghettos of Eurydice City and Phia follows an uprising of angry mothers and wives against them.

"Radioactive"-Imagine Dragons

--The Revolution has changed Phia, perhaps for the worse, perhaps for the better. Who can say?
« Last Edit: October 06, 2013, 06:07:07 PM by Brenna »
"There are places out there where the skies are burning, the seas are asleep and the rivers dream. People made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's adventure. Somewhere else, the tea is getting cold."
--The Doctor

I listen to this guy at work XD  I appreciate the most the explanation that you give for each song - while the OST could stand on its own, it is that much more powerful knowing the story that spurred each one.  As I already mentioned, I think "Cry Little Sister" was a fantastic choice for Seraia and Phia's relationship, and a pretty hardcore opener for this OST.  Like a baseball bat swung right the feels. 

THIS WAS AWESOME

I agree, I love the notes you added for each song.  It's helpful to see the story behind each one, and the reasoning as to why you used it.  The addition of highlighted lyrics is particularly nice.  Nicely done!
