I feel like any of the characters who feel like they might be judged for doing something they thought was necessary would fit the song. So Rhys, Syrien, Tsuba, Carlisle, Kegan, and possibly, (In a twisted way) Caesar, C.C., and Silence/Eiden might all fit the song. Which I suppose is almost a complete gender swap for the whole thing, but they all would fit the theme of "If you had been there, if you had seen it, I bet you you would have done the same" that the song is all about.

Interesting thought there. Hm. I wonder what couple might fit "By The Sea" also from Sweeney Todd. If any couple fits that. Perhaps Rein and Kegan, in their grand dream of their lives.

Ooh, I just had an interesting thought. What do you think would be the most appropriate song to describe the relationship between Tsuba and Carlisle?

Hmm, I'm not sure if one song would fit it, considering they both look at the relationship in very different ways now.

I'd say for Tsuba, One Day I'll fly away from Moulin Rouge would be the song she would have originally had, with it's "I want romance, not yet, but when I can have it." sort of feel. Now I'd say the song she'd sing would actually be Nowadays from Chicago.

When he was enamored with her, I'd say Hold Me Tight by the Beatles would have fit Carlisle's feelings for Tsuba, short as they were. I'd say now that he's with Mab, Carlisle's song for his feelings about Tsuba would be Across the Universe by the Beatles.

What song do you think could fit the both of them?

Very true. Hm. I do not know. My knowledge of musicals and songs is limited to a select group. Let me think. Maybe something from a good Disney musical? Hunchback, perhaps? I dunno.

Speaking of Carlisle and Mab I find the sound Enchanted by Taylor Swift to fit them well. But since we are talking about musicals I feel the song My Defenses are Down kind of fits with Nebi about C.C. Imo. Not sure if it does.

I really can't think of anyone other songs for my characters for musicals right now.

Another song from Taylor Swift is Innocent. From Mab to Carlisle regarding his backstory and how she forgives him for his mistakes and still sees his as this good person she loves.

I also see this song for Samy.

This song right here (Hand of Sorrow by Within Temptation). I have a feeling that it could apply to a number of characters from Succession/Rebellion, even parts of it relating to one or more.

Though I'm not sure if any character fits the song entirely.

The child without a name grew up to be the hand
To watch you, to shield you, or kill on demand
The choice he'd made he could not comprehend
His blood a grim secret they had to command

He's torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have passed, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

The curse of his powers tormented his life
Obeying the crown was a sinister crime
His soul was tortured by love and by pain
He surely would flee, but the oath made him stay

He's torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have passed, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

Please forgive me for the sorrow
For leaving you in fear
For the dreams we had to silence
That's all they'll ever be
Still I'll be the hand that saves you
Though you'll not see that it is me

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?


For instance I feel the third verse could apply to Chris singing to Mab when she *spoilers* dies at the end *spoiler ends*

I have a song, but not a character to match it to. Can any one here think of a character that this song would fit?

I feel like the song "She's not There" by the Zombies sort of fits Caesar, Katie, and Rhys as a song sort of to each other in general, with all their confusion around the whole Susanna death issue and what lead up to it. (They're all missing pieces of it, really, and that's never going to change.)

Rhys

Well no one told me about her the way she lied
Well no one told me about her how many people cried
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find her
She's not there


Caesar

Well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked
The way she'd act and the colour of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there



Well no one told me about her, what could I do
Well no one told me about her, though they all knew
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find her
She's not there


Well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked


The way she'd act and the colour of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there



Katie

But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother tryin' to find her
She's not there

Well let me tell you 'bout the way she looked
The way she'd act and the colour of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there

I see Human by Ellie Goulding as an almost perfect song for Amy. Her fascination of humans and her sometime desire to be human. Or experience human life.

Human behave yourself,
you have burst at the seams
let it all fall out open your mouth
often I lie wide awake,
think of things I can make
but I don’t seem to have the parts to build them

Human I wonder why you’re a better make
Than I could ever build or create,
you know not love or hate

I am so scared of what will kill me in the end for I am not prepared,
I hope I will get the chance to be someone,
to be human,
look what we’ve done,
look what we’ve done

I would give my life, to be human
I would give my life, to be human
I would give my life, to be human
I would give my life, to be.

Human I’m trying to come clean,
I will be a better me,
I will not drink until I’m dead
I’ll make the most of it.
I don’t know what it’s like to be alive,
to say goodbye,
to cry a thousand tears because my ears won’t listen

Human I’m trying not to lose my faith in you, (This line goes well with her right now in the rpg)
I’ve sussed out all that I’ve seen through,
I’ve sailed an ocean

I am so scared of what I’ll look like in the end for I am not prepared,
I hope I will get the chance to be someone
to be human,
look what we’ve done,
look what we’ve done

I used to hear it all so loud,
the sound of my heart breaking.
The truth is waiting to be found,
I trust that I will take it

I would give my life,
I would give my life,
I would give my life,
I would give my life,
I would give my life, to be
I would give my life, to be
I would give my life, to be
I would give my life, to be (human)

I think this song fits Caesar rather nicely, myself. In my opinion.

Brave - Nichole Nordeman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqSs39C3LN8

This is such a Siv and Connor song, in the POV of Siv. Siv is a slave character of mine, while Connor is a pirate of Plague's. Ever since they were put into a pirate RP together, there has been nobody else for the two of them. And we've continued writing their story via collab.

The gate is wide
The road is paved in moderation
The crowd is kind and quick to pull you in
Welcome to the middle ground
You're safe and sound and
Until now it's where I've been


The first two lines are about how Siv has her whole life ahead of her, but she never takes chances, never does anything contrary to what she was raised to be--a slave. She's lived a sheltered life, and she views her life of slaverly as safer than any other life.

'Cause it's been fear that ties me down to everything
But it's been love, Your love, that cuts the strings


Siv is afraid of change, and afraid of freedom. She insists that she is happy as a slave, but really she's just scared of life. But when she falls for Connor, and when he treats her like an actual human being, she starts to change, slowly.

Chorus:
So long status quo
I think I just let go
You make me want to be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave


This is Siv wanting to please Connor. She doesn't want to disappoint him, and she doesn't want to be a burden to him, and so she tries her best to put on a brave face and to be strong for him. And the more time she spends with him, the less she wants to be a slave (though she has not figured that out yet).

I am small
And I speak when I'm spoken to
But I am willing to risk it all
I say Your name
Just Your name and I'm ready to jump
Even ready to fall...


Being a slave and treated like an object all of her life, it is no wonder that Siv doesn't think much of herself, and sees herself as 'small'. And she's been taught only to speak when spoken to, and to answer 'yes, Master', 'no, Master'. As one of the pirates remarked about her in the RP, 'she's a drone'. But she's growing more and more comfortable with saying Connor's name, and she's falling deeper and deeper into love with him.

Why did I take this vow of compromise?
Why did I try to keep it all inside?


Plague and I aren't quite this far in the collab, but at one point Siv is going to start questioning why she allows everybody to decide her life for her. And when Connor leaves her, thinking that she's happy being reunited with her family, she's going to wonder why she didn't let him know how much she cared about him.

[Chorus]

I've never known a fire that didn't begin with a flame
Every storm will start with just a drop of rain
But if you believe in me
That changes everything
So long, I'm gone


Siv has never had anybody believe in her before, not in the way that Connor does. But both of them are afraid to tell each other how much they love one another. If they had known, that would have changed everything, but instead Connor leaves her.


[Chorus]
...
You make me want to be brave
I wanna be brave
The way it always was
Is no longer good enough
You make me want to be brave
Brave, brave


I love those last few lines of the song. This whole song fits Siv really well, but it is these last few lines that really nail her and her love for Connor. She's not content with a life without Connor, and she will do anything to make him happy. For him, she'll be brave.
