Song-fics

Post by Guest on Tue 16 Sep 2008 - 13:16

Figure it should be here and I think I'll post it since Chapter 11 is out for weeks now.

Song-fics.

So, any songs would you use in your fic to describe a scene? I mean, like use the lines, put it in a scene of the story then while you're writing listen to the song, etc.

Well, any song you would use in your fic to describe a scene?

I've used

Anata ga Ita Mori by Jyukai in the ending of 'Reason to Live'

recently I use 'Namida no Riyuu' by Kuribayashi Minami on Chapter 11 of 'The Detective's Daughter'. I'll get the lyrics and others later.

ok, next?

I'm actually a hardcore otaku who likes maids more than having three meals in a day and I only read books related to maids. Also, I only visit maid cafes. Of course I also collect maid figurines, I play games which feature maids and it turns me on so much that I'll wear the maid uniforms and jump in joy.

Not exactly what you were asking for, Panzer IV, but when I was writing my OC bios (and now as I work on their first story) I love listening to all the "music doujin" remixes done by fans for the various Key Media games (Kanon, Air, Clannad, etc.). Right now I am listening to the "Organized Trance Sequential Unit" Club Music Compilation released by Key themselves (under the Key Sounds label).

But yes, I do have some specific songs in mind that could work for some future fictions.

Alright, now that I have managed to done some things...

Depending on the fic, I'll use certain songs to be incorporated into the fic. For example, in the ending of 'Reason to Live' I translate Fate/Stay Night's ending song 'Anata ga Ita Mori'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGG5sB-xt5s

...and fit it to be part of the chapter. Try reading it while listening to it. The mood of the story suddenly swings into something even more interesting!


Currently while writing 'The Detective's Daughter', I choose some songs from 'School Days' (if you don't know what it is, its that tragic/gory anime where one guy hogs all the girls and get what he deserves--death).

In a chapter before Triela fights Rachel, I use the song 'Let me Love you'. Once again, translated. Oh! I only use the first verse for this one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oi2kViNvYMg&feature=related

Then for Chapter 11: Regenschauer, I translated the song 'Namida no Riyuu' from the same anime and implemented it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Osh-ZKduhRA&feature=related

Ah! Don't mind the lyrics from the link above^. Its the wrong lyrics, supposed to be for 'Look at Me' from the same anime^^

That's what I mean by 'song-fics'. Once again, while reading a chapter I incorporated a song with I suggest reading it while listening to the song. v^_^v

Coming back to this thread many months later, Salty Orange Vanilla uses lines from both Toradora! EDs.

And I Know Saint Peter Won't Call My Name uses the titles of Coldplay songs as chapter titles, said songs reflecting the theme of each chapter's storyline.

One of Battlezone's chapters is a songfic. Set to Hammerfall's 'Never, Ever'. I can't believe the emails I get from people telling me what a beautiful poem I've written. It's an actual song, dammit.

Well, that's songs are 'poems' basically--minus the rhyming and all that. They basically hold hidden meanings as well. That's why: if you don't want to be 'credited' to be plagiarizing, then credit the author and the idea that it 'came from a song'.

I haven't check this topic. But anyway, West-san, 'Anata ga Ita Mori' or 'あなたがいた森' means 'The Forest Where you Were'.


Now...that song of yours...not sure I've heard it somewhere, but (れっつ!おひめさまだっこ/Rettsu! Ohime-sama Dakko) means, in a simplified term 'Held like a Bride'. Although 'Held like a Princess' is also legit.


...now I just figured its from 'Kodomo no Jikan' after listening it in Youtube. The TV version's translation basically:

1st stanza:
Kuyashii no nanimo kamo
Zurui koto shiteru no wa otona
Yakusoku mamorinasai
Dono kuchiga itteru no
Akkanbe otehon misero


I don't think there's anything more vexing
Than adults that do dishonest things
"Keep your promises!"
Whose mouth is saying that? Nyeh!
Show me the pattern

2nd stanza:
Kanchigaino doujou
Yada yada iranai
Kimino tameda nante iu kedo Uso kusai
Honnenara kikukedo Ato wa doushiyo
Yatte miru Sorewa watashi wa kimeru


There's no way I want
any sympathy from misunderstanding
You say things like "It's for you," but that's a stinkin' lie!
If there's a reason, I'll listen, but what after that?
Wanna try? That's for me to decide!

3rd stanza:
Amayakasuto tsukeagarutoka
Atama kataine Wakattenai
Taisetsuni sareruto motto
Onna no ko wa sunao ni naruno
Kawaii ku omowaretaku naru no Naru no

Soujuu Mon yo

Your thick head doesn't understand
Things like pampering and spoiling me
But, more important that those things
Is for a girl to become honest
And to feel like she wants to change, to change

Just like that



and that's about it. If you want the full song, I'd have to download it first and listen to it then I can give you the full translation.

...just curious, what fic are you gonna' implement this song in? :3

I've only written one songfic recently and it's not even GSG related.

Although I'll be the first to say that songs and music in general are pivotal to my creative process. For me few things can illicit illustrated description or even the emotion of a scene like an appropriate song.

For example:

The Alpha Effect 1\ Ending - Reason is Treason by Kasabian

Piccole Risa\ The meat of the fic - You're So Cool by Hans Zimmer

The Alpha Effect 2\ Requiem for Nyromi Lautani - Dust in the Wind by Sarah Brightman

There are also recent developments that have been brought about by listening to certain songs.

Upcoming Projects:

The Ride/GSG Crossover\ Jolene by The White Stripes

Crystal/Anton Fratello Creation\ So What by Pink & Fuck You Tough Guy by T.S.O.L

Retribution (fic)\ For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica

Alpha's Return\ Green Onions by Booker T and the MG's

...

...
And that's just off the top of my head. sweat

I don't write songfics, but musical references are rife, usually in the chapter titles. Hell, Memories Upon Broken Glass is named after a song by a former local band around here. Oddly enough, I'm wearing their T-Shirt right now... Eerie.
