June 2009 Vignette: FC PbP Musical Episode

Recommended Posts

Life's a show and we all play our parts

And when the music starts

We open up our hearts

FC:PbP is offering the community another "vignette" opportunity. If you'd like to read about our New Years Vignette exercise look here and here; info on our July 4th vignette can be found here, and on the Bloody Valentine/Friday the 13th one here. If you weren't around in those days (or even if you were), keep reading to find out more!

The Maestro has enacted his most diabolical scheme ever! Acting in concert with Medea, the Conductor of Crime has found a way to force people... to sing! And not just sing, but to sing about themselves and their secrets! The duo plans to use their newfound knowledge to blackmail certain wealthy and influential members of the city. Daedalus, Johnny Rocket, Seven and Sonic will stop them... but not before a large pulse of the mind-manipulating melody goes off, hitting several PCs throughout the city.


Who: Any player who is interested, for one or both of their characters. Plus any back up singers or chorus.

What: Write a song for your character. The song must in some way define the character, and reveal some hidden secret. You're free to base it off some existing tune, but if you do, please let us know what that tune is.

When: The deadline for submissions will be Tuesday, June 30th by 11:59 PM EST (GMT -5).

Where: Your "performance" can take place anywhere in Freedom City; if you do not want your PC's secret being revealed, have the musical interlude happen in a secluded place, such as your own HQ. When you submit your vignette, please make a note clearly indicating in which forum it should be posted, as well as when it would be happening.

Why: To enhance our community, to flex your writing muscles, to think more deeply about your character, and to earn a bonus PP for your character for the month of June.

How: Once your story is finished and proofed, PM it to one of the Refs (Ecalsneerg, MarkK, MBCE, Sandman XI, or myself). When all the stories are in, one of our staff members will post them to the appropriate forums (which is why we need you to be sure to tell us where it should go!), and provide links to them in this thread. DO NOT post them in a forum yourself, otherwise it will not be counted for this exercise.


Post here with questions.

Eternal, 'ternal lie,

And with strange aeons even death may die, die, die, diiieee.

Always dancing next to me,

If you touch it I'ma start some drama,

You don't want no drama,

No, no drama, no, no, no, no drama

So don't pull on my hand boy,

You ain't my man, boy,

I'm just tryn'a dance boy,

And move my 'pods.

My 'pods, my 'pods, my 'pods, my 'pods,

My 'pods, my 'pods, my 'pods, my 'pods, my 'pods, my 'pods.

There are parts of verses that stop abruptly (i.e. there are some parts that don't mesh up properly).

Otherwise, awesome song!

CTHULHU!

(to the tune of the extended Teen Titans theme song)

When there's trouble, you know who's been called (CTHULHU!)

From deep R'lyeh, he can dream it all (CTHULHU!)

When there's evil on the attack

You can't rest knowing Cthulhu's back

'Cause when the world to insanity faaalls

CTHULHU, NO!

CTHULHU, NO!

With mind-warping powers, he divides (CTHULHU!)

Never met a mortal that he liked (CTHULHU!)

He's got the people on the run

He'll never stop 'til he's nom'd each one

'Cause when the world is losing all control

CTHULHU, NO!

CTHULHU, NO!

If the stars are right, you better watch out

You cannot escape his 'pods

When he catches you, there won't be any doubt

You've been eaten by Cthuuu...

eaten by Cthuuu...

C-T-H-U L-H-U Cthulhu! Fhtagn, Ia!

C-T-H-U L-H-U Cthulhu! Fhtagn, Ia!

C-T-H-U L-H-U Cthulhu! Fhtagn, Ia!

C-T-H-U L-H-U Cthulhu! Fhtagn, Ia!

[maddening beating of vile drums & thin monotonous whining of accursed flutes solo]

When there's trouble, you know who's been called (CTHULHU!)

From deep R'lyeh, he can dream it all (CTHULHU!)

When there's evil on the attack

You can't rest knowing Cthulhu's back

'Cause when the world to insanity faaalls

CTHULHU, NO!

CTHULHU, NO!

Four, three, two, one, NO!

CTHULHU!
