Hearts Full of Song [P-Cita and I] [L?]

Postby Kallile » 05/28/2017 5:21 PM

The Disillusioned Estate was throwing a lavish party for all house guests and neighbors--said to be the biggest of the year in Evelon. It was to welcome the lady of the houses'' thirtieth birthday and there was a general hum of excitement in the air. Actually, now that one might think about it, there really was a hum in the air.

Image

Eros flapped his ethereal Cupid wings he maintained with his magic and hung in the air over the festivities being prepared below. He sighed, casting his gaze over the expanse of the estate with a sense of defeat in his heart. He'd been here a year and still he hadn't really helped anyone find their true love. He was a fraud, a failure! A...

Image

A fellow Voidbringer suddenly hovered next to him, a smirk in her eyes. "Problems, matchmaker?

Eros had heard stories about her, but had never thought he'd actually meet the fate shifter in person. He blinked all four eyes a few times before nodding reluctantly. Deadpool snickered. "I think we can come to the perfect course of action to fix that. Touch my claw and see what I mean..."

Though he was wary of her meaning, Eros relented. What choice did he have? he was the worst cupid in history.

The ground below, the entire vastness of the Estate, gave a sudden pink flash from every tree and blade of grass that faded just as quickly as it had appeared with a mist of shimmering silver and pink dust that hung in the air as if suspended in time itself. Anyone who inhaled it would be placed under it's spell until they found their other half...

...and slowly the entire population at the party began to sing...

((This is just an idea I had--to make my characters into something like the "Happy Feet" characters in that they all have a heart song and they use it to find their match. So there's no plot, just some character shenanigans and development.))
"I have been hidden, scorned, adored, worshiped, forsaken, coveted and banished more times than I care to count. But the one thing all those experiences cannot steal from me is the gentle soul I was born with, the kind heart I have molded, and the bright ideals for the future that have lit my way through the darkness of the past."

Roux

He wasn't really sure why he was still at the house for the party to be honest. Maybe it was because Devi had threatened him within an inch of his life that if he didn't come and be social she'd drag him on an epic shopping spree through Evelon's biggest mall. Probably.

At any rate, Roux found himself walking around the yard and avoiding other guests as best he could. It was a lovely enough day, so being outside wasn't all bad. The burst of pink from the atmosphere made him jump and throw his arms above his head to brace for...nothing. He peered one eye open, pulling his arms down when he realized that it was just some big glitter bomb. Well, that seemed a bit eccentric even for the Lady of the house but...

"I've been alone with you inside my mind..."

Roux clamped his hands over his mouth as his eyes shot wide. What? Why was he singing? Slowly he heard other voices raising in song--and not the one he was singing. He released his hands ever so slightly, finding that once the pressure was gone his mouth was moving of its own accord again.

"And in my dreams I've kissed your lips a thousand times."


~*~

All different melodies rose to the air from the mouths of unsuspecting guests and Eros could feel his tail wiggle with glee. He cast a glance to Deadpool who only smirked a moment. "It's their problem now--their songs will guide them where they're meant to be."

And with that the Fate Seer was gone, leaving the giant makeshift cupid alone on his cloud to watch the events unfold below him.

Roux walked through the yard at a quick clip, not making eye contact with anyone though staying keenly aware of how the others were reacting. Some were much like him--trying their best to keep their mouths closed and stop the songs from coming. But a few perplexed the paranoid man; rather than try and silence their song they were belting it out with almost relieved looks on their faces. He supposed he could feel it too--when he had released hold of his mouth and let the song come forth it had felt rather freeing and almost warm in a way. He'd felt at ease to sing despite never having liked the sound of his own voice...because it really hadn't felt like singing at all. It'd felt more like calling someone's name, beckoning an old friend to come and join you.

He looked around him when he reached the back of the Estate home to ensure he was alone for the moment. He could still hear the songs of others from all around him and they were growing in number. Others were giving in to the way singing their song made them feel...he supposed then that he could be brave enough to do it to.

" I sometimes see you pass outside my door...Hello? Is it me you're looking for?
I can see it in your eyes. I can see it in your smile. You're all I've ever wanted and my arms are open wide."


It did feel freeing to stop trying to fight it back, but the image of a face came to Roux's mind as he sung and the small smile that had been worming its way onto his lips faded instantly. Oh, he'd never be here anyway. He was probably still out on his late night call...

Alonzo

Alonzo was, in fact, back home and preparing to step out of the house into the yard where the party was being held. He'd seen the blinding pink explosion of glitter and could only laugh a little. Seemed like something Kyrie would plan, but he hadn't thought pink was her color. It certainly wasn't the favorite color of the Lady of the House, but he shrugged. Probably all they had in stock in such large quantities, he told himself as he swung the door open. A flurry of the glittery stuff charged into the house and spread like a wildfire and Alonzo shook his head and coughed.

"Little much on the...." he stopped, feeling choked for real but not because of the glitter. His vocal chord were suddenly not his own to control anymore, and instead his mouth formed words he'd not intended on uttering.

"You with the sad eyes, don't be discouraged." He pursed his lips together, only now realizing the entire yard beyond the doorway was in a cacophony of song and that tunes were beginning to erupt from deeper within the house as well. He listened for a moment...until one stood out above all others.

"Cause I wonder where you are, and I wonder what you do. Are you somewhere feeling lonely or is someone loving you?"

He recognized the voice instantly, his heart swelled at the words he was hearing. It felt like he was hearing sound for the first time to hear those words sung by that voice alone; all the other noise of the Estate faded out of his perception as he moved towards the song he was hearing.

Roux was leaned against the wall, belting his heart out into the song he wasn't ever sure he'd heard before. But it felt so right, so good to get it all out. He simply couldn't stop himself. He barely noticed the face that had once just been in his mind peer from around the corner as he sang, or even as the object of his affections closed the space between them until they were standing nearly face to face. And even though he willed it to the song refused to stop, it only quieted a little.

"Tell me how to win your heart... for I haven't got a clue..." He paused as he bit his lip. He never would have said anything so bold to Alonzo any other day, but now he couldn't stop himself. To his surprise--Alonzo began to sing back with his own song.

"Show me a smile, then. Don't be unhappy. Can't remember when I last saw you laughing. This world makes you crazy and you've taken all you can bear. Just call me up cause I will always be there. And I see your true colors shining through..."

"But let me start by saying..."

"I see your true colors, that's why I love you..."

The last words came out in unison, the two staring at each other. Alonzo's rich voice carried on, and this time Roux found his song changed. Their duet rang above all other sound and on his cloud hideout Eros squealed with glee.
"So don't be afraid to let them show, your true colors"
"True colors..."
"Your true colors are beautiful...like a rainbow."
Ohohoooooh, like a rainbow.

They leaned into one another in an embrace, still singing the soft, sweet duet until it was silenced by their kiss.

((Alonzo's song is True Colors--cover by Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick
Roux's song is "Hello" by Lionel Richie
Onward!))

Naos

Parties were something completely new to Naos but when his earth-bound love had told him to meet her at one for a friend of her mother he couldn't very well refuse. The biting Spardia already disliked the star being here so he couldn't very well leave Eden without his accompaniment when she requested it.

The Estate was pretty by Earth standards but it was no nebula. Naos looked around at the little specks of silver and pink drifting through the air and grinned slightly. It was always so quaint to watch the humans try to mimic the beauty of space with their artificial sparkling stars they called 'glitter'. He strode closer, finding it odd that the glitter rain seemed to be trapped immediately behind the gates. Well, he supposed there was a great deal of magic here that many residents could tap into. It should then come as little surprise they would keep their cute space attempt contained least the neighboring estates complain about the cleanup.

He pushed the gate aside and walked into the shimmering dust that seemed to hang in the air. Though he didn't necessarily need to breathe it made the locals feel better if he went through the motions, so he began inhaling and exhaling as he'd observed them doing. This, to his shock, led him to do something else he'd observed them doing: singing.

He found his heart and mind full of images of Eden and the deep desire to seek her out though he couldn't find the words to simply call her name. Each attempt led to more lyrics he'd never heard and yet he felt as though he himself had written them all at the same time.

"'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars.
I'm gonna give you my heart.
'Cause you're a sky, 'cause you're a sky full of stars.
Cause you light up the path.
'Cause in a sky, in a sky full of stars,
I think I saw you-o-o-ooo-o-o-o."


The last note he held, his final attempt to call out to his love whom he'd crossed the cosmos for. He clamped his lips closed and listened--though for what he wasn't sure. Every fiber of his being just told him to be still and quiet, that he'd know what he was listening for when he heard it.
"I have been hidden, scorned, adored, worshiped, forsaken, coveted and banished more times than I care to count. But the one thing all those experiences cannot steal from me is the gentle soul I was born with, the kind heart I have molded, and the bright ideals for the future that have lit my way through the darkness of the past."
