I think I posted this topic on old Iwaku, and it's worth posting again because it's so much fun!


Pick your character, any characters. And find a song that is so them post the lyrics from the song that really seem to sum up that character, and tell us why!
 
Genders You Prefer Playing
Male
Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
Moderate to aggressive.
Favorite Genres
Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
Genre You DON'T Like
I'll try just about anything. I'm not overly into RPs where the prime focus is romance. I'm not too hyped on fan based anime rp either.

Dario, although I haven't developed him much, could be described by the song "Im too sexy" because is is obsessed with his looks. Often times he will look at himself in the mirror or comb his hair for hours.

Oh geez.

Well, Maggie went down with the Sea Raven, but her song was An Bad Dubh by Clann Zu.

"In their boats you watch them rise
Over waves and crests of white
I'm closer to you now.
Your voice is falling as we rise
Over swells in falling light
I'm closer to you now.
In the morning you're standing there
Above the waves in half time air
I'm closer to you now.
I'm closer to you now."

Because she was MEANT to be having an affair with some mysterious sea monster.

Eddie locked away in Hargonstein has Climb Up The Walls on repeat

"I am the keys to the lock in your house
That keeps the toys in the basement
And if you get too far inside
You'll only see my reflection
It's always best when the light is off
I am the pick in the ice
Do not cry out or hit the alarm
You know we're friends till we die...
So lock the kids op safe tonight
Shut the eyes in the cupboard
I got the smell of a local man
Who's got the lonliest feeling...
And either way you turn, I'll be there
Open up your skull, I'll be there.
Climb up the walls..."

From Radiohead- I think I'm missing a verse though. Because he's supposed to be overly friendly/creepy and that puts me in about the write place mentally to try to write him.

And Aya's not my character but dammit he's got a freaking soundtrack. Seriously, on my computer I have an "A. Fujimiya Playlist"

My favorite first,

"She sells anger
And the whole world has to pay...
She reeks of danger
Aren't these games such fun to play
And does she weep sincerely?
Or does she only pay amends?

She'll never say she's sorry,
no one has ever seen her bend.
She'll never say she's lonely,
No one will ever take her hand.

And is the world still watching as she drownes herself to sleep?"
-Specifically from She sells anger by Poni Hoax, even though the song is about a girl (yes I know that!).

Three Days Grace's (I'm not fond of them but it is possible the best song for Aya whether or not I like it.) Riot:

"If you feel so empty
So used up,
So let down
If you feel so angry
So ripped off,
So stepped on
You're not the only one
Refusing to back down.
You're not the only one-
So get up!

Let's start a riot!

If you feel so filthy,
So dirty,
So fucked up,
If you feel so walked on,
So painful,
So pissed off,
You're not the only one
Refusing to go down.
You're not the only one-
So get up!

Let's start a riot!

If you feel so empty
So used up, so let down
If you feel so angry
Just get up!"

But then again that song was more a fit of the series I thought. Hey, it's not ANY WORSE than the music the directors put to the series!

...Oh, I completely forgot about Feedback's Flare RP, I think I submitted a little boy... I can't remember the name but the song I was listening to was Listen Now by The Knife

"Listen now, I am afraid of everything.
When you told me I was special,
It was the happiest moment in a long long time!
Listen now!
I keep forgetting your name-
When you laid down on the kitchen floor,
It was the happiest moment for a long long time!"

Followed by some shady english I couldn't understand but sounded kinda... ominous.

Field Commander Carl McCarthy, 51ST Armored Division, the Steel Battalion, Independent State Army.

Indestructible, Distrubed

Another mission, the powers have called me away
Another time to carry the colors again
My motivation, an oath I've sworn to defend
To win the honor of coming back home again

No explanation will matter after we begin
Unlock the dark destroyer that's buried within
My true vocation and now my unfortunate friend
You will discover a war you're unable to win

I'll have you know
That I've become

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war!

Another reason, another cause for me to fight
Another fuse uncovered now, for me to light
My dedication to all that I've sworn to protect
I carry out my orders without a regret

My declaration embedded deep under my skin
A permanent reminder of how it began
No hesitation when I am commanded to strike
You need to know that you're in for the fight of your life

You will be shown
How I've become

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible master of war!

I'm indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I am indestructible

Indestructible
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable

Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I?m an indestructible master of war!


The reason for using this particular song for Carl is because to leg infantry main battle tanks are an invincible monstrosity, especially when they plow through without warning. Carl is an armor and artillery commander, using field howitzers to support the forward drive of his tanks.


Lieutenant Julius Ryker, 8TH Commandos, the 'Angin' Patriots, Independent State Army.

Mr. Badguy, Freddie Mercury

Let's go chasing rainbows in the sky
It's my invitation
Let's all take a trip on my ecstasy
I'm Mr. Bad Guy
Yes I'm everybody's Mr. Bad Guy
Can't you see I'm Mr. Mercury
Oh, spread your wings and fly away with me.

Your big daddy's got no place to stay
Bad <nobr>communication</nobr>
I feel like the president of the USA

Mr. Bad Guy
Yes I'm everybody's Mr. Bad Guy
Can't you see I'm Mr. Mercury
Oh, spread your wings and fly away with me.

I'm Mr. Bad Guy
They're all afraid of me
I can ruin people's lives
Mr. Bad Guy they're all afraid of me
It's the only way to be
That's my destiny
Mr. Bad Guy, Mr. Bad Guy, Bad Guy

It's the only way for me
It's my destiny

Mr. Bad Guy
Yes I'm everybody's Mr. Bad Guy
Can't you see this is my destiny
Oh, spread your wings and fly away with me.


The reasons for using this song for Ryker is simply because Ryker considers himself a 'Mr. Badguy' of sorts. He has ruined peoples lives in war and in peace. As for the Mr. Mercury line, well... Ryker idolizes Freddie, 'nuff said.

Annalilly from Quest for Drymera fits Superchic[k]'s song "Stand in the Rain"

She never slows down.
She doesn't know why but she knows that when she's all alone, feels like its all coming down
She won't turn around
The shadows are long and she fears if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

She won't make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering if she stands she'll fall down
She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything she's running from wants to give up and lie down.

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
Stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain


&& that one Dananachan rp where my character, Annie, was separated from her fiancee because of an intergalactic space war ~

goes with "Thunder" by BoyslikeGirls

Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Today in the blink of an eye I'm holding on to something and I do not know why
I tried

I tried to read between the lines
I tried to look in your eyes
I want a simple explanation
For what I'm feeling inside
I gotta find a way out
Maybe there's a way out

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain
And bring on the thunder

Today is a winding road
Tell me where to start and tell me something I don't know
Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Today I'm on my own
I can't move a muscle and I can't pick up the phone
I don't know (I don't know, I don't know, I don't know)

And now I'm itching for the tall grass
And longing for the breeze
I need to step outside
Just to see if I can breathe
I gotta find a way out
Maybe theres a way out

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain

Yeah I'm walking on a tightrope
I'm wrapped up in vines
I think we'll make it out
But you just gotta give me time
Strike me down with lightning
Let me feel you in my veins
I wanna let you know how much I feel your pain

Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
Whoa

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain
And bring on the thunder, and I said
Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain
Oh baby bring on the pain
And listen to the thunder

Hmmm.

For Kozche I like Have A Nice Life's song Hunter. It's depressing and hopeless and still has this nice sarcastic edge to it that just suits his little angst fits

"Hunter I'm-
Laid out on the forest floor,
Arrows in my back and sides.
Down among the leaves and stones...

You can wear-
My skin as armor.
You can eat my flesh and bones.
Leave nothing that is needed-
All I have is yours.

And I give myself up to your-
Sharpened edges...
I no longer cling to my life, yes,
I'm finally giving in.

Teeth and hate-
End our relationship.
Of course it's sad-
But that's the way it is.

Your violence always wins the day.
(Yes, your violent ways...)

And I give myself up to your-
Sharpened edges...
I no longer cling to my life, yes,
I'm finally giving in.

Oh!
And you watch
As the animals lay themselves down at your feet.
A thousand beard teeth-
A thousand bowed heads-
Yes, they're begging you for death!

The hunter does us all a great service.
And we've done so much to deserve it."

Sergeant Norman 'Desolator' Lynch, 21ST Marine Expeditionary.

I get two songs, bitches!


Tin Can Hitman
Robotronica

he won't take your money, he just wants your life
collecting on your bounty just for being alive
shock you with his sockets, empty out your pockets
the police look for a clue but all the will find is you
he uses the night to sneak past your sight
ninjas and pirates, they've got nothing on this guy
he's sneaky and quiet so keep your house lit
careful where you step, careful where you sit

cause he's the tin can hit man
try to catch him if you can
secret robo agent with a secret robo plan
dont you dare get in his way
or he'll take you out, with his death-ray

tin can hit man
try to catch him if you can
secret robo agent with a secret robo plan
keep your windows shut
lock your doors air-tight
the tin can hit man's coming for you tonight

ask him if he's heard of my friend joe
he won't tell you anything cause of what he knows
look over your shoulder keep a watchful eye
he will blame it on you while lays there to die

everyone will tell you that he's out of control
he wont stop 'til everyones a robot doing what they're told
someone stop him before he seals our fate
oh god, oh no, it's to late

here comes the tin can hit man
try to catch him if you can
secret robo agent with a secret robo plan
dont you dare get in his way
or he'll take you out, with his death-ray

tin can hit man
try to catch him if you can
secret robo agent with a secret robo plan
keep your windows shut
lock your doors air-tight
the tin can hit man's coming for you tonight

tin can hit man
try to catch him if you can
secret robo agent with a secret robo plan
dont you dare get in his way
or he'll take you out, with his death-ray

tin can hit man
try to catch him if you can
secret robo agent with a secret robo plan
keep your windows shut
lock your doors air-tight
the tin can hit man's coming for you tonight


Smasher Devouerer
Fear Factory
Obsolete

Fear me not but fear my hell
Men made me so I could kill
Praise me in the name of war
I destroy both rich and poor

I am the way, prepare for salvation
I am the way, prepare for salvation

Strength in time of suffering
Man alone is a weakling
Ascension is what you ask
I will be the fall of man

I am the way, prepare for salvation
I am the way, prepare for salvation

Salvation...

Those of you who dare to stray
I will tear your mind away
Those of you who dare to stray
I will take your life away


I chose Tin Can Hitman as Desolator is kind of a... tin can hitman. As he's on the Independent State Marine Corps' payroll it could be said that he collects 'bounties' for those he's killed.

Besides, most of it goes to his whisky fund any way.

As for Smasher Devouerer it should be obvious. Everyone is a target in war. He will kill you regardless of who you are. As for the salvation part I'll let the following do the talking:

'Only the dead have seen the end of war.'
-Plato

Dude Looks Like a Lady

For those not in the know, Lieutenant Travis was the recipient of a blob wyvern soul during the Admin War. He received a decent number of the wyvern's traits, including hermaphrodism. So Lieutenant Travis has C-Cups full of Justice and seven inches of man meat.

Fortunately the Individual Body Armor flak jacket covers his torso pretty well.
