Hi all,

We're aware of a peculiar forum glitch that's causing some subforums to be locked.

Due to the lateness at this time, it might be a while before the glitch can be remedied, because despite my best efforts and as far as I can tell, everything seems to be working fine admin-side. It may have …

ANYWAYS, we did it - we (almost) survived 2016 which, I think we can all agree, was pretty damn terrible in many ways.

Re: Infinity's Row: Character themes!

Post by Shaybaysasuke on Fri Oct 23, 2015 7:25 pm

I know I already have a theme for the boys but I found a better fit for them that isn't from the Hobbit XD



Lyric Analysis:
The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
The boys have been through a lot, no day being like the the last but they get through it together because they are always there to support one another.

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
Through all of their hardships they never let the other fall and either one of them regrets helping each other all these years.

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another
The two brothers love each other so much and it's confusing and weird to them that not everyone has had this love in their life that they had always provided to each other.

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother...

And I also found a good song for Ren



Lyric Analysis:
Close your eyes now time for dreams,
Death is never what it seems.
Did the things you thought you should,
All the things they said were good.
Ren was never afraid of death, always accepting nightmares and the prospect of death as a natural thing.
She also always believed that what she was doing was for the best, even thought some of the tasks she completed were horrible.


All your faith in ancient ways,
Leaves you trapped inside a maze.
Take the lives of those you need,
Sow the death then reap the seed.
Reap the seed.
Ren always battles with her regrets, killing to try and drown out the death of her family by her hands.

Born an angel, heaven sent,
Falls from grace are never elegant.
Stars will drop out of the sky,
The moon will sadly watch the roses die.
Ren was an incredibly sweet girl before the death of her parents, personality turning on a dime after she killed them. Yet even though she gladly takes orders, she always feels remorse after killing.

In vain,
Lost, no gain,
But you're not taking me.
She may be killing people, but she knows the acts aren't getting her anywhere. But she will not fail Fe.

You can't have my life,
I'm not your sacrifice.
You can try, but I'm free,
And you won't conquer me.
She is such an independent spirit and won't let anyone make her feel inferior or take her down without a fight.

I won't crawl,
Most of all,
I won't fall,
For you.
Show them gods and deities,
Blind and keep the people on their knees.
Ren won't go down but she is not unwilling to keep others down and kill them.

Pierce the sky, escape your fate.
The more you try the more you'll just breed hate,
And lies.
Ren is great at gaining enemies and lying to gain control over them.

Truth will rise,
Revealed by mirrored eyes.
No matter how much Ren tries, the truth will come out and she won't be able to hide it.

What if all the plans you made,
Were not worth the price they paid?
Ren often wonders if what she is doing is the right thing, hating the impact killing has on her.

Even with the lives you stole,
Still no closer to your...
Goal.
Ren just keeps killing, and killing, and killing even though she knows that none of it is helping her.

You can't have my life.
I'm not your sacrifice.
You can try, but I'm free,
And you won't conquer me.

I won't crawl,
Most of all,
I won't fall,
For you.

Re: Infinity's Row: Character themes!

Post by Hime on Fri Oct 23, 2015 11:25 pm

Shaybay, those were great! They described your characters extremely well. Smile

Since you posted that, I had inspiration to do another one myself. If any of you have seen Phantom of the Opera, this song is "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" from Christine's visit to her father's grave.

As it can be assumed, this song is about Yuffie's father. The song never fails to touch me, and I hope it does the same for you! Every time I hear it, I think of her. So I had to do something with it.




Lyric Analysis:
You were once my one companion
You were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father
Then my world was shattered
Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed
Somehow you would be here

This line is quite straightforward -- this is Yuffie speaking to her father, longing for him to come into her life once again. Her life was changed drastically when her father was killed, and nothing good seemed to happen anymore. The last two lines tie in to her naivety and adolescence, saying that she always believed that if she dreamed of him returning, it would happen.

Wishing I could hear your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
All that you dreamed I could
Passing bells and sculpted angels
Cold and monumental
Seem for you the wrong companions
You were warm and gentle

This part of the song is Yuffie addressing a more personal and adult aspect. She wants to hear his voice again, but she realizes that no amount of dreaming could make that happen, or make her the good person he knew she would become. The bells and sculpted angels are referred to as cold, and she believes that this doesn't suit her father, because he was a warm and gentle person.

Too many years fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die?
Wishing you were somehow here again
Knowing we must say, "Goodbye"
Try to forgive, teach me to live
Give me the strength to try

Yuffie is hurt by the past, and wishes that somehow it would fade away. However, she does realize that her dreams of seeing her father again are unrealistic and that she must come to terms that it truly is goodbye. In the last two lines, she's asking him to watch over and protect her as she progresses through her journey of self-discovery.

No more memories, no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say, "Goodbye"
Help me say, "Goodbye"

Yuffie is realizing that she cannot dwell any longer, and that crying will no longer be of use. But there will always be that part of her that never wants to say goodbye.

So, I haven't given either of my characters themes yet, but I do have one for another character who's going to make his first appearance in Caria's upcoming side story. I figured I'd put it here as sort of a teaser, get the speculation flowing on who exactly would be coming along to fit this. I already put it up in the Skype chat, but that'll get buried pretty fast, so I figured I'd drop it here too. Normally I'd use a clean song-only video, but the music video for this is just too perfect.

Shannon those gave me feels Dx And Sacrifice seriously fits Ren perfectly. Hime yessss I approve of your using a Phantom of the Opera song. And yes, Omni, that music video was great xD

On my end, I have two other songs I want to share. They're actually not so much character themes as they are relationship themes. And bonus! They're both from RWBY.

The first one is 'Boop'. It's one of the many Genlias songs, and more or less told from Gentry's point of view (there's also one from Elias's point of view, but I'll post that one at a later date). I'm actually not doing any lyric analysis for this because Nora has a similar enough personality to Gentry that it fits anyways.



Lyrics:
Never knew a time, when you weren't by my side.
The one thing I could always count on.
Always there for me, you've been my family.
Even when all other hope was gone.

But for a while things have seemed so different,
Like it's the same but still brand new.
I can't believe it, when did I start to fall for you?

Have I lost my mind, have I just been blind,
Never to have seen you might be,
Everything I need, everything I dream,
All along has it been right in front of me?
We've been together for a long long long long time.
I've never thought that you and I could be a thing.
I can't believe it, this is happening.

I think oh whoa what am I to do.
I didn't know that I would fall in love with you,
And what to do right now I haven't got a clue.
I just bite my tongue and when I want to say I love you I say,
Boop.
Boop.
Boop.

Every chatelaine wants to share her reign, so come and join me in my castle.
We'll crush our enemies, bring them to their knees,
And though I have a tendency to babble.
When I think about you I can't help my heart from racing.
My mind goes fast and my knees start shaking.
My stomach does flips, and my brain does flops,
And the feelings that I'm feeling I don't think that I can stop.

I could just say it, I love your everything.
But I can't quite tell my self, if you're feeling quite the same.
Maybe I should slow it down, try to show restraint.
Hold Magnhild, I think I'm gonna faint.

I think oh whoa what am I to do.
I didn't know that I would fall in love with you,
And what to do right now, I haven't got a clue.
I just bite my tongue and when I want to say I love you I say,
I'll say boop,
Boo boo boo boo boo boo boo boo boo boo boop.
When I want to say I love you I'll say boop.

Enjoy the cheerfulness? Good. Because this next one is significantly less happy.

This one focuses on the relationship between Natasha and Mordecai, which is planned to play a big part in things eventually. Basically it's about how Natasha feels about always believing Mordecai would come for her during her six years of captivity only to find out that he died + he was a traitor, and about Mordecai's regrets, and then . . . well, then some other stuff in the future. It's pretty easy to tell if you pay attention.

Again, I'm not doing an analysis because RWBY lyrics are pretty self-explanatory. But the lyrics in this one are actually a bit of a duet, so are there parts basically 'spoken' by the two. Italicized ones are Natasha, bolded ones are Mordecai, and both is . . . well, both.



Lyrics:

I couldn't take it, couldn't stand another minute;
Couldn't bear another day without you in it.
All of the joy that I had known for all my life
Was stripped away from me the minute that you died.

To have you in my life was all I ever wanted,
But now without you I'm a soul forever haunted.
Can't help but feel that I had taken you for granted;
No way in Hell that I can ever comprehend this.

I wasn't dreaming when they told me you were gone,
I was wide awake and feeling that they had to be wrong.
How could you leave me when you swore that you would stay?
Now I'm trapped inside a nightmare every single f'ing day.

It's like a movie, but there's not a happy ending;
Every scene fades black, and there's no pretending.
This little fairy tale doesn't seem to end well,
There's no knight in shining armor who will wake me from the spell.

I know you didn't plan this;
You tried to do what's right.
But in the middle of this madness,
I'm the one left to win this fight.

Red like roses
Fills my head with dreams and finds me
Always closer
To the emptiness and sadness
That has come to take the place of you.


I know you're broken down by anger and by sadness;
You feel I left you in a world that's full of madness.
Wish I could talk to you, if only for a minute;
Make you understand the reasons why I did it.

I wanna tell you that you're all that ever mattered;
Want you to know that, for eternity, I'm shattered.
I tried so hard just to protect you, but I failed to,
And in a prison of abandonment I've jailed you.

I never planned that I would leave you there alone,
I was sure that I would see you when I made it back home.
And all the times I swore that it would be okay;
Now I'm nothing but a liar, and you're thrown into the fray.

This bedtime story ends with misery ever after,
The pages are torn, and there's no final chapter.
I didn't have a choice, I did what I had to do;
I made a sacrifice, but forced a bigger sacrifice on you.

I know you've lived a nightmare;
I caused you so much pain.
But, baby, please don't do what I did;
I don't want you to waste your life in vain.


Red like roses
Fills my head with dreams and finds me
Always closer
To the emptiness and sadness
That has come to take the place of you.


You're not the only one who needed me; I thought you understood.
You were the one I needed, and you left me as I always feared you would.
Would I change it if I could?
It doesn't matter how,
The petals scatter now.
Every nightmare just discloses
It's your blood that's red like roses!

And no matter what I do,
Nothing ever takes the place of you.

Red like roses.
Fills my head with dreams and finds me.
Always closer,
To the emptiness and sadness,
That has come to take the place of you.

Damn, Writing. I really want to see what ends up happening between Natasha and Mordecai now.

And with that, here's Caria theme to go with her husband's up above. I don't tend to do lyric analyses; I like leaving people to figure out the associations I mean on their own. If I've done my job well, it should all be clear in the end.


And finally, Constantine's theme. Nothing explicit, just, well... For some people, listening before bed may be a bad idea.

As I draw Elyse's sidestory to a close, I decided it's time to post a new theme for her. Hurricane was a good description of her struggle about joining the Row; this one is pretty much a perfect song for her time with the Row. The lyrics are pretty straightfoward, and the overall duality of the music itself fits extremely well.

Re: Infinity's Row: Character themes!

Post by WritingBookworm on Sun Jan 17, 2016 5:38 am

So since I'm having a very hard time falling asleep tonight, I figured I might as well get some theme business out of the way while I'm still thinking about it.

Does anyone happen to remember the two themes I posted for an 'upcoming villain' way back on page 1? I kinda doubt any of you did, even if you were around back then, but if you did for some reason, then kudos to you. I can confirm that the villain in question was Mordecai, and I'd like to repost these themes now that people have a greater understanding of his true character.

As I said earlier when I posted them, these are basically different versions of the same song. They're English dubs of the first Attack on Titan theme, and while it's probably supposed to be a more heroic song in nature, the way the lyrics are translated in these fit really well with Mordecai's character. Like, it scares me sometimes. Now, the difference between the two? In the first version, it's about Mordecai's past and descent. He is the victim. In the second version, it's about him in his current state. He is the perpetrator. The fact that the two songs have basically the same lyrics but different tones really highlight his growth as a character, whether it be for the better or worse.



Lyrics:

Our names won't be remembered
If we die like trampled flowers
I refuse to be forgotten
Written off as less than worthless

Ahh

Scream and cry
But none will hear you
Plead and beg
But none will help you
You no longer live as cattle
Will you rise and join the battle?

There are beings that live off of fears
And their words are like knives                              
As they play with our lives
They'll try to control you
As if they own you
Will you let them steal your freedom?

Channel the anger swelling inside you
Fighting the boundary 'till you break through
Deep in your soul there's no hesitation
So make yourself the one they all fear

There is a wild fire inside you
Burning desire you can't extinguish
Your crimson arrow
Rips through the twilight
This is the moment for war

Ahh

Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die jäger
Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die jäger
Sie sind das Essen und wir sind die jäger

Channel the anger swelling inside you (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
Fighting the boundary 'till you break through (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
Deep in your soul there's no hesitation (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
So make yourself the one they all fear (Ahh Ahh Ahh)

There is a wild fire inside you (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
Burning desire you can't extinguish (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
Your crimson arrow (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
Rips through the twilight (Ahh Ahh Ahh)
This is the moment ...



Lyrics:
Scream and cry
But none will hear you
Plead and beg
But none will help you
You no longer live as cattle
Will you rise and join the battle?

There are beings that live off of fears
And their words are like knives                              
As they play with our lives
They'll try to control you
As if they own you
Will you let them steal your freedom?

Channel the anger swelling inside you
Fighting the boundary 'till you break through
Deep in your soul there's no hesitation
So make yourself the one they all fear

There is a wild fire inside you
Burning desire you can't extinguish
Your crimson arrow
Rips through the twilight
This is the moment for war


For any of you still here, it should be noted that Natasha also has something like this in terms of themes. However, seeing as it's past 4:30 and I really need to try falling asleep again, I'm gonna do that at a different time.
