Another Countdown (Fall)Homestuck
I pictured Jane Crocker inverting her role to act like a Doom player with this sort of music, so I hacked it up from the original track in a couple hours in Audacity (and thus deserve no credit). The track art is similarly hacked-up from the original in photoshop.
Not that I allege it’d actually happen at all like I describe below. But it’s fun to pretend. :)
If you would indulge my sick imagination, think of Jane walking down a dark purple hallway into a chamber near the heart of Derse, ready to confront )(er Condescension. Then, halfway through the track, she enters the chamber to find her freshly-slain Dad on the floor, the Batterwitch shoving her bloody trident deep into his back. You see Jane’s distraught eye, as you did when John saw his own dead father. Then the skull imagery starts to fade in around her as she steps toward the witch, inversion taking hold.
Finally, Jane grabs the Condesce by the throat, enraged, and in a conflagration of ashen and sulfuric Doom energy, the troll empress ages rapidly and decays until she melts into dust.
And on the following pages, music long over, and Lord English’s immortality curse taking hold around her, the heiress dons the ash-soaked tiara of the fallen witch, her macabre trophy as she takes her rightful place on the throne.

Ruins RisingMichael Guy Bowman
Ruins Rising is probably my absolute favorite rearrangement of Ruins, if only because it sounds just like what would play in the ancient ruins level of a videogame. The creepy echoey guitar at the beginning without the recognizable melody sounds like when you think you’ve just entered a normal cave, without any real history or importance.
Then, the noise drops and the Metroid Prime-esque beat appears and you know you’ve stumbled upon something special. It’s still very introverted, though, a mystery to solve. Everything is strange, and every corner could house a clue. When the melody comes in, the main idea or ancient purpose of your surroundings becomes clear, and you have a hint of what you should be looking for exactly.
But the more you wrap yourself in the history of this strange track, the more intense it becomes, until the poignance of the place’s origins overpower and enhance your curiosity, entrapping your mind in a pyramid that, years in the past (but
not many), used to be a laboratory for the creation of strange and powerful forces beyond your comprehension.
Ruins Rising could be a theme for any number of characters, events, or places in the story, as long as it continues to be a theme for Ruins.
