I love FF15. And the characters. It happens rarely that I play a JRPG and actually adore the whole party. :D

So, have the finished and scanned version of the fanart, which… I actually just started because of their names. If you translate the names from Latin, you get something like that:

Noctis Lucis Caelum. Dawn light in the night sky? That one is actually poetic and fitting.

Prompto Argentum. Quicksilver.

Ignis Scientia. Errr… Fire and knowledge? Promethean fire? One of his special attacks is Sage Fire, so works for me.

Gladiolus Amicita. Small sword of friendship. Aaaand I lost it. A friend and I spent the rest of the evening making compensation-jokes. And since I can’t really add cutie marks in his background, he gets the love of his life: Cup Noodles.

Listening to shuffle and Carolina came on - huge contrast to the classic rock it was surrounded by. I'm blown away by how rich and layered the sound is - along the lines of the Beatles or Badfinger. There is so much going on, particularly in the second verse. All the vocal harmonies and instruments. With your highly trained ear, can you pick out all the instruments and parts on the 2nd verse? Not asking for a full breakdown on the song - yet! Thanks!

I heard a lot of percussion, but I couldn’t name all of them, so I went to my percussion guy.

“Carolina” is a sonically satisfying song to listen to– like SOTT, there’s a thickening of texture, a build-up to a synth rise and string swell in the middle, and then a paring back to barer textures at the end. There’s also a counterpoint of syncopated sounds that is really masterful– just a beautiful, subtle, sexy production, rhythmically tight and smart.

The percussive sounds contrast impertinently with the whiny, strung-out vocals– hallucinatory vocals, like on “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”

I know you didn’t ask for it, but, too bad, dude, you’re getting it. My instrumental breakdown (I have left out vocals):

0:00 lap steel, bass, shaker, Jew’s harp
0:08 cow bell, acoustic guitar, bass
0:17 bass, hand claps, lap steel, acoustic guitar
0:46 drum set, tambourine, shaker, synth
1:00 drum set (+tight snare, tambourine, bass, open/close high hat
1:20 bass, drum set, synth strings (violin, cello), open/close high hat
1:36 drum set, tambourine, synth rise
1:48 cowbell, spoons, shaker, electric guitar, bass
1:55 bass, cowbell, spoons or chimes
2:10 drum set, tambourine, bass, electric guitar, lap steel
2:26 synth strings, drum set, tambourine
2:56 electric guitar, synth string, synth down, snare rim
3:01 snare rim, electric guitar

The instruments like the shaker, spoons, cowbell, Jew’s harp, lap steel put this song into bluegrass territory, but the snares and the electric guitar set it into more in blues/ jazz.

The synth strings are definitely 2017, as are all these layers that can be digitally mashed together to form a tapestry of sound.

Director sanvers (finally I found someone who takes prompts for them lol) - Night-time (does that count as one word? Haha)

Thanks for the prompt!

Maggie turned her head up to the sky. Sometimes, though very rarely, she found herself missing nights in Blue Springs. Not for any of the people there, except maybe her aunt. But for the stars in the night sky. Nebraska skies were free from light pollution. She looked up at National City’s dark, starless sky for a long moment. It always made night time feel a little more lonely, to look at an empty sky.

Soon, she was reminded that she wasn’t alone at all. She felt an arm wind around her waist from her left, and a hand in her own on her right. Lucy on her left, Alex on her right. She tilted her head back down, and looked at the two beautiful women at her sides. She offered them each a small smile.

“What’re you thinking?” Lucy murmured, resting her chin on Maggie’s shoulder.

“The stars. It would be nice to see stars again.” Maggie responded.

Alex squeezed her hand, and said, “I know a great place, not too far out of the city. You can see so many stars it’ll take your breath away.”

“Let’s go. This weekend.” Lucy said.

“I’d like that.” Maggie said quietly. She spared the sky one last glance, then the three continued to walk down the sidewalk.
