Imperial Ball Commentary

Post by Tycho » 2011-07-19 19:43

Just some things I've observed in the Midsummer Imperial Ball thread.

Devan and Aquila, almost unanimously voted cutest couple. Tell me you don't go awww when reading their story ;)

Ace and Syren, can't you just feel the love between these two?

Eri thought she was safe away from the party, but as usual Thrakis appears out of nowhere and drags her back in. Surprised? I think not. :P

Ryan almost gets chain force lighting by Kane, but Kane contemplates hiring the Psycho For Hire. Good thing he already knows that Evil Is Not A Toy.

Draaygo steals a kiss and gets a mental slap from Crystala. That one made me rofl.

And Laurel seems to be everywhere at once in the ball, playing the gracious host.

As for Mouse, let's just say that "I've got a bad feeling about this."

Blitz wanders around, ready to lay the smack down on someone even while dancing.

Ansgar looks around intimidatingly just being a boss.

and last but not least, Zekk Constantine and Syren.... well, I think this says everything:

You forgot the brief yet epic smackglare-down Tycho gave Eri.

And Seamus getting in a dance while his fellow comrades make obscene gestures at the bar.

As well, the epic appearance of Thrakis, right under the collective noses of everyone... Shades of Mai

Also, I think Jubar needs to dance. Just sayin' because I think that would be an awesome post!

Good list though Tycho! I pretty much fell over on the floor and died laughing but, I think you've come to expect that from me by now :lol:

Ahhh...so much truth here. Of course, there is I who quite often thinks in music, so I figured I would share a few of the ones that went through my head when I read this.

Anyways, without further ado, I give you all a glimpse into my mind. :-P

I believe we can all agree that this is one of the songs which they should dance to. (So many versions out there...but I particularly like this one.)
Tycho wrote:Ace and Syren, can't you just feel the love between these two?
This one in particular definitely brings to mind one of the songs from what is possibly my favorite Disney movie ever. Just with an *extremely* ironic overtone.

The two of them, together? What could possibly come of having two rabble rousers together?
Tycho wrote:Ryan almost gets chain force lighting by Kane, but Kane contemplates hiring the Psycho For Hire. Good thing he already knows that Evil Is Not A Toy.
This sort of no-holds-barred bravado brings to mind a particular character from a particular 80s movie, and the songs in it. Yes, I am aware most of my pop-culture knowledge comes from the 80s and 90s.

Draaygo's particular perspective is borne out much better with this song than hers, but it adequately describes Crystala in the eyes of many. :-P
Tycho wrote:And Laurel seems to be everywhere at once in the ball, playing the gracious host.
With her dancing around as quickly and gracefully as she is, it brings to mind a sort of particularly light and graceful song.
Tycho wrote:As for Mouse, let's just say that "I've got a bad feeling about this."
In jest, I offer you this, but in all seriousness, we know the true meaning of it all, which is explained so well here.
Tycho wrote:Blitz wanders around, ready to lay the smack down on someone even while dancing.
Once again, there is just another song which is too perfect to pass up.
Tycho wrote:Ansgar looks around intimidatingly just being a boss.
I couldn't help it. Seriously, can you blame me when a song has that title?

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but music can also capture that quite well, and add a certain color to it. :)


Anyways, I hope you enjoy all these!

Actually I like this one better. Don't worry, I may be a metalhead, but this song isn't heavy like that. More like progressive rock. :P

Agree with all of it except Zekk's. Really hes the NIF's piggy bank. If it will screw the NR hes in.

Also sorry Xanis I know some people like pink floyd but that Money song for Zekk sucked :/ This one might be better but I don't have time to look for a good one.

Well, the best I can hope for is for people to disagree / want to change my suggestions because then...WE GET MORE MUSIC! :D

I'd say Money Money Money would definitely fit Syren, but I still like Pink Floyd's for Zekk. :D

And Draaygo, I like it!

:D

Thanks, I like to listen to Coheed and Cambria a lot when I post as Draaygo, they have some epic songs that usually fit in well with what is going on.
