“Okay,” you reply distractedly, not bothering to look up from your laptop. The bright screen contrasts with the darkness of the room, illuminating the look of concentration on your face.
“I’ll be back soon.”
Your expression doesn’t waver when you reply with an, “Okay.“
Bucky stands in the doorway for a few extra seconds even though he’s already running late. He knows he should leave, but he can’t will himself to move. It takes a full minute for him to figure out why he has a nagging feeling that something’s off. He finally puts two and two together and he’s almost knocked off of his feet by the revelation.
Did y’all know that Tim Rice submitted a set of lyrics for “Memory” when Cats was still being developed in London?
IIRC, “Memory” was written at the behest of Trevor Nunn really wanting a big, showstopping ballad for the show, leading ALW to compose the melody without any lyrics. They then contacted a host of lyricists to pen a potential lyric, among them Tim Rice, who initially balked but then agreed once Elaine Paige joined the show as Grizabella. Rice’s lyric is considerably darker than the final version used in the show, and goes as follows:
Street lights And the darkness between them Like the good and the bad sides Of a life almost done. Shake the memory All my passions returning to me None forgotten No, not one.
One life Is there only the one life That we lose in the living In an endless decline? No complaining For no one else has seen what I’ve seen One existence Only mine
Don’t look back no don’t look back So hard to heed that warning Such temptation but the past is past And the night makes way for morning
Daylight I won’t care if it finds me With no breath in my body With no beat in my heart For I’m certain That now I know what happiness is Wish I’d known that From the start
Touch me Is there no one to touch me It was easy to love me In my glamorous past As I leave you A shadow of the light I once was May my memory Sleep at last
By the time Rice agreed to write the song, though, Nunn was already working on his own lyric, incorporating lines from various T.S. Elliot poems (most prominently “Rhapsody on a Windy Night”), and ended up choosing his own to use for the show. Allegedly, Elaine Paige far preferred Rice’s lyric.
hello! i recently started to like the prefixes mint, honey, and milk, but i cant think of any good endings or personalities for them :') they would probably all be really sweet sisters. do you have any suggestions for suffixes or personalities? feel free to not really answer if thats too much to ask! thank you in advance!
Hello Ash I am so sorry for the wait but I can look into this now! I rate on the Lyrical Scale!
Mint- as far as what her appearance would be, would most likely have to be a grey cat as the name refers to the flower of the mint. Honey- would be best for a golden colored cat. Now for Milk-, in some systems it isn’t really a recommended prefix though if you still feel you would like to use it it would work best for a pure white cat. I’m not too sure that that these three would be able to be born in the same litter though so you may want to look into that.
Since you described the sisters as sweet though, there are a few suffixes that could suggest that depending on which personality you think would fit for each of them, including a few in the Traditional System I’ll mention too.
To start then, depending on if they’re a kind medicine cat, -leaf, -fern, -poppy, -berry could all work well.
For a motherly cat, -flower, -lilly, -rose might work.
An overall bubbly cat, -splash, -belly, -feather, -flight, -bounce, -leap
An overall kindhearted cat, -belly, -heart
There are likely quite a few more especially given that Lyrical can be so expansive but I hope this could give you an idea for their names. Also many of these names can mean more than one thing so feel free to send another ask if you have any more questions!

Song Used - Cover Girl by Big Time Rush ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
“[F/N]-CHII!” you heard a voice say, causing your eye to twitch. You knew exactly whom that voice belonged to.
“What is it Kise?” you asked, looking at yourself in your locker mirror.
♪♬ I don’t know why you always get so insecure I wish you could see what I see when you’re looking in the mirror♪♬
“My manager said that we have a gig today,” he said, wrapping his arm around your shoulder.
You couldn’t help but shudder at the stares you were receiving from the other females.
“I know we do, idiot,” you replied, pinching the skin on his elbow, causing him to flinch. “I have you marked down for the rest of the month.”
During your free time you loved photography, and took lots of gorgeous pictures. However, thanks to this idiot, you were now a photographer for his modeling company; More specifically, you were Kise Ryouta’s photographer.
“So mean (F/N)-chii!” he whined.
“Then stop being an idiot,” you replied as you slammed your locker shut. “Let’s go and get this over with.”
“Wait up, (F/N)-chii!” he exclaimed as he ran after you. The moment he caught up to you, he grabbed your arm. “How did you get to be so fast?”
“When your model has a shit ton of fan girls, you have to learn how to out-run them.”
“By the way,” he started as he stood up straight and walked along side you, “You looked great today.”
Grabbing your bag, you whacked him over his head. “Don’t say shit like that,” you growled.
Since i listened to ‘Drown’ of @counterpartshc (my fav band by the way) almost 5 months ago, this idea came into my mind, and i couldn’t find a better way to represent what this song and its lyrics mean to me, i’ve always had this image in my head and i’m glad that i can finally see how it looks in one of my pieces of work, i’m looking forward to get this tattoed, so it is not available or for sale, i’m really happy with the result. “In my dreams we drown together, everything goes black but you will see me just fine.”

I enjoyed Pocahontas as much as the next child growing up. I sang the songs, bought the toys, and then moved on to the next movie/cartoon. But recently I was listening to “Colors of the Wind,” and it affected me to my core.
As I digested the the lyrics I realized how relevant they were, and how all of us as people could learn something from Pocahontas.
The idea that we have the ability to not just consume the planet and see how much money we can gain from it, but that we can actually experience it, and appreciate it.
The idea that more than just the people who look and think like us matter.
The beautiful idea that if we never look outside of what we already know, that we may be missing out on some amazing things that life has to offer. Take some time to read through the lyrics. Let it mess you up. I also included a link to my favorite version of the song.
“You think I’m an ignorant savage And you’ve been so many places I guess it must be so But still I cannot see If the savage one is me How can there be so much that you don’t know? You don’t know …
You think you own whatever land you land on The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim But I know every rock and tree and creature Has a life, has a spirit, has a name
You think the only people who are people Are the people who look and think like you But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned? Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains? Can you paint with all the colors of the wind? Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth Come roll in all the riches all around you And for once, never wonder what they’re worth
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers The heron and the otter are my friends And we are all connected to each other In a circle, in a hoop that never ends
How high will the sycamore grow? If you cut it down, then you’ll never know And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper skinned We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains We need to paint with all the colors of the wind
You can own the Earth and still All you’ll own is earth until You can paint with all the colors of the wind
Watch a year or two from now,, or maybe even soon,, OR MAYBE RIGHT NOW there’ll be nct x exo conspiracy theory connections… exo planet.. nct…. n city…
7th sense lyrics though
“In the same dream I hear a familiar song that calls to me, it connects us” referring to nct realizing the connections
“look at what is real” don’t look at the surface, look deeper
“Each day repeats but it’s okay” dissociation? Losing hope?
“my future is colored darkly / I’m struggling, coloring this night even blacker” they already know what’s going to happen to them, having seen it happen to exo, their future was colored when it happened to exo. “Even blacker” what else was black? The liquid they were injected exo with. (Ok I admit that’s a reach lmao)
“Open your eyes, quietly open your eyes” they have to realize the situation without others (the doctors/nurses) knowing
“(Awakened) My seventh sense” they’re realizing this before hand, they’re aware ((but what if they got injected with seventh sense?? Like,, it’s a “sense” or ability that was awakened through being test subjects, they might not realize. Seventh sense could be an improved experimentation))
“The clock laughs at me, it does not give a single error” they know they’re being fed information, they realize this might not be the reality.
“I’m still going somewhere / To an unknown place, to an unknown hall” HALLS !!!! WHAT WAS EXO RUNNING DOWN??? HALLS BITCH !!
“I’m spending most of my time in a place that’s uncomfortable even after several nights” referring to his stay there, he can’t get used to it
“Mindlessly going around until I close my eyes / I’m doubting this moment, between dreams and reality” losing connection with reality… the affects from it all?
“There’s a story that’s deeply hidden” *eye emoji* x100
Without you lyrics this doesn’t necessarily refer to exo but maybe nct to each other,,, or they’re just lyrics with no conspiracy ties but I figured I’d include those too
“Look into someone’s world / That’s tired of being lonely” they’re trying to relate, probably to each other’s experience, they’re going through the same thing
“They desperately wanted something / But was unable to find it” a way out?
“We shared this much together.” Sharing the same experiences they had there, the same pain, they went through it all
maybe it was the way
you were so easy to talk to,
the way my secrets had a tendency to roll off my lips
like they were cigarette smoke;
but you were just an overly polite bystander
who didn’t want to shame me for my addictions.
i was just so blind
by the pair of blue eyes that i could’ve sworn
were always focused on me.
i never noticed how delusional i was–
the whole time, you were just looking past me.
maybe it was because i’ve always been a girl
who is in love with fairytales,
and i risked it all because i thought
you were the prince charming.
i took a swim in the oceans of your eyes,
but why did you have to let me drown?
now you can’t even look me in the eye
and your name leaves a bitter taste in my mouth
because i realized
that you never even gave a damn at all.
