To me, the really intimidating part of Solas’ theme song is that the game introduces it so slowly - first you only hear these thrumming, oppressive war drums (and you didn’t know why - why are there drums? Why??). When you fight the Saarebas, strings come in to lead the drums.
Only when you start fighting the last boss of the game, do you finally hear Solas’ real, complete theme song. Something like a metaphor for hunting down the pieces to the mystery behind the character himself.
I put the three versions of the song together to make a version where one builds up into the next, the way it does in the game. 6-minute panic attack.
time Elrond heard Black Speech, it was not from an orc. It was from
Maedhros. It had been in the middle of the night, during another one of his
nightmares. By then Elrond and Elros had been told to ignore Maedhros, for
there was nothing that anyone could do about his terrors.
nightmare was different. Elrond couldn’t simply ignore it and go to sleep.
It wasn’t the usual pleading in Quenya, nor was it screaming or shouting—it was
a completely different language. A guttural, deep language that chilled Elrond
to the bones. It was haunting and dark, painful even! Like grass scratching at
his ear drums. He only imagined how awful
it had to have been for Maedhros himself to speak it.
For he spoke
in complete despair, as if he had lost all hope in the world.
Elrond, terrified him beyond reason. He didn’t know why—it was just a language!
Gibberish for all he cared, yet it stilled his very soul. The entire fortress seemed
to fall silent under his spell, and even Elros, who was usually the brave one,
trembled in his bed.
Later on, when Elrond
was old enough to fight beside the Feanorians, he had come to realize that
Maedhros had spoken the language of the orcs. It gave him a chilling insight as
to what Maedhros experienced in his captivity if he spoke the language of his
Annon asked: Hey! Are you taking requests? Can I have a Shawn imagine when me and him are just friends and my dad is the tour bus driver so I end up staying with the crew + Shawn for a few months… We’re left alone and we end up making out because he knows I haven’t had my first kiss. Thank youuuuuuuuuuuu babe
My dad, has a pretty amazing job. My names Y/N, I’m 17 years old and my dad is the tour bus driver for the one, the only…. *dramatic drum roll*… SHAWN MENDES! I mean his job honestly, is the best job ever. I’ve been staying on the tour bus with my dad, Shawn and the crew for 3 months already. I don’t mind it, especially being around Shawn, we’ve bonded so much and he makes every day am adventure for me. I was listening to music, while drawing when I got pulled outta my thoughts by the door of the bus opening. I looked up to see Shawn, “finally” I said throwing my pencil and notebook to the side. “Sorry, I had an amazing show” he smiled plopping himself down on my legs. “Your all sweaty Shawn” I tried moving away, but his weight kept me pressured down. “Come onnnn play with my hair” he nagged while searching through Twitter, I rolled my eyes and began playing with his hair “only because I’m in a good mood” I chuckled, “yes” he said extending the s’s.
My dad started the car once everyone was packed in, “you wanna go somewhere private?” Shawn said grabbing his guitar, “sure I smiled”. We made our way to the back of the tour bus where there was a door that we could lock. The both of us sat Indian style on the ground, “so I learned a new song” I smiled over reaching for his guitar, “really? Let me hear it” he smiled. I adjusted the guitar strings before finally getting the right cords.
“There was a time
I used to look into my father’s eyes.
In a happy home
I was a king, I had a golden throne.
Those days are gone,
Now the memory’s on the wall.
I hear the songs
From the places where I was born.”
I strummed slowly, and really connected with the song. I took glances at Shawn as he watched me in awe. As I went on his head started to bob, and he started make a little beat on his leg. I made my way to the end of the song slowly strumming, “Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child.See heaven’s got a plan for you.Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now.“Yeah!” I finished, and placed the guitar on the side of me. “That was amazing” Shawn chuckled a bit smiling. “Thanks, but I’m not as good as you” I played with my hair. “Your amazing stop, who sings this?” He questioned, “Swedish House Mafia” I smiled. “So what’s our next stop” I layed on the floor, “New York” he let a breath out, “your excited aren’t you?” I said looking over to him. “Ecstatic. There’s nothing like meeting the people that made this all possible and being able to preform for them” he said staring up at the ceiling.
There was a light knock at the door before it opened a bit, “Y/N?” My dad called out, “yeah dad over here” I said sitting up. He opened the door wider before walking in. “Me and the crew are gonna go eat, well be gone for 20 minutes, I’m leaving you in charge of this bus which means I’m leaving Shawn in charge of it” he smiled at Shawn “okay dad” I smiled back “behave, I’ll get you food” he said leaving the room. A couple minutes later and the tour bus door closed. “So what do you wanna do to pass the time?” I asked Shawn. He thought about it for a moment, “truth or dare?” He smiled, “I’m down” I chuckled back. “Truth or Dare” I asked, “dare” “I dare you, to tweet a double chin picture” I laughed, “oh come on” he protested, “should have never picked dare” I laughed. He took a quick picture before posting it, “truth or dare” he asked with a slight bit of hope that I would respond with dare. “Truth” I smirked, “Is it true you finally had your first kiss?” He asked with a slight bit of interest. My face grew red, “that is false” I tried to smile, “what??” His eyes grew big “it still hasn’t happened?” Shawn knew I hadn’t had my first kiss, he asked me one day and I just told him. Since then, he’s been trying to get me to experience my first kiss. “Of course it’s not gonna happen when majority of the time, I spend it on the bus” I awkwardly chuckled.
“I’m gonna describe what would be a perfect first kiss scenario would be like” he said looking me in my eyes, “go for it kid” I chuckled. “A perfect first kiss would be random, I’d be off guard but be filled with passion. She’d sit there unaware of what the man is thinking” he said looking Into my eyes, “he’d be thinking of how to approach this situation, she’d take small breaths feeling awkward with the silence” his gaze went to my chest, “shed avoid eye contact, while he’d stare deeply at her admiring her beauty. She’d look down, letting a strand of her come across her face” i ironically looked down to avoid staring at him much longer. I pulled myself back to look at him as a strand of hair stood loose in front of my face. “He’d catch sight of the loose hair, and push it away bringing her slowly closer to his face in the process” he pushed my hair away, lightly bringing me close to him. I could feel his breaths hit my skin, “he’d tease her” his lips lightly brushed against mine, I closed my eyes preparing for whatever was going to take place. “Before he actually would do it” he used a finger to lower my chin more. His lips pressed against mine, stunned I didn’t react but I followed his pace. Our lips moved in sync, I bit his lip extending it outward. He leaned forward making me lean back. Our lips quickening, I was fully laid down on the floor with both his hands at my sides. He let his tongue roam my teeth before asking for entrance which I fully gave him access too. I flipped us over so he was on the floor and I was straddling him. He tugged my shirt, and for a moment I broke the kiss to take it off. A soon as it was off, our lips met again. This time, I tugged for him to take off his shirt. He quickly did, as we kissed my hands roamed his body, I was close to asking for his pants to be discarded when the door to the bus opened. “Shit” I said quickly hopping up and getting my shirt. Shawn got his shirt on and casually went to scrolling through Twitter, as did I. “Hunny?” My dad said opening the door, looking over at me. “Yeah?” I said putting the phone down, “here ya go sweetie” he smiled handing me a bag of food. “Thanks dad” I kissed his cheek. He handed Shawn a bag of food to before leaving. I let out a huff, “truth or dare?” Shawn asked again, “truth” I furrowed my Brows, “is it true you had your first kiss?” He smirked, “yes I did and it was with someone amazing” I smiled to myself as I bit into my burger.
*drums rolling* NEW OC xD no actually I’m just repurposing a very very old oc of mine that I had completely abandoned before. Tbh I’m just keeping his general design and name, but I won’t keep his old character (he was the shittier scumbag shithead asshole in the world…. and quite impossible to write.) He now is a part of Reza’s world ^^
So his name is Lawrence. He’s somewhere between 10 and 13 years old (still not completely settled on that) and I struggle very much to draw him because by golly children are hard to draw for me xD His mother just passed away and his father is unknown. But since his mother kept talking about Reyner he just assumed he was his father. So one day he stormed in the cafe to confront Reyner. I won’t say more about this since I will upload a little story fragment about that specific moment =3
