    Haha, I'm a fountain of wisdom, aren't I?! xD *laughing* Not really. I will be posting the Pilanel Folksong from the Riddle probably this afternoon as soon as I can record the vocals. I think you'll like it - even though it is a melancholy death song. Apparently I like those the best? LoL.

    EDIT!: The Pilanel Folksong is now available to listen on my BardofPellinor Youtube account.

    I will listen to your songs sometime but I can't right now-- I'm on a public comp.

    Ohh Dena I think I heard it! *checks*
    Yes it is you! You're a very good singer!

    Thank you! I'm glad you like. I have a couple more that don't have words (They aren't made from the poetry) but I'm debating whether to upload them...one of them is an orchestrated sort of movie-score style piece made for
    Spoiler:
    When Maerad plays her lament for Cadvan and then sees Ardina in the Riddle
    . The other is some dancing music in the Zmarkan style, but I don't know if I'll upload that either. Perhaps some new things soon though!

    They were all very nice, Dena. One suggestion-- perhaps record harmony? It really would sound gorgeous, especially on the Annaren Lullaby.

    The strong part of your songs was definitely the background music-- it sounded pretty professional.

    Keep posting more!

    WOW!! thats all i can say about your vids dena! they are ssoo awesome and i commented on them

    I didn't do any harmony because of the kinds of songs I did - they weren't the type to be sung by multiple people (two death laments and a mother's lullaby). I will probably record harmony for some of my new ones if I can get them done! :-3

    True, but I was just thinking of one other part, not like a chorus, haha

    This song reminds me of Maerad and the contrast between her immense powers and the duties she has because of them... not so much the first couple of paragraphs, but the rest. It's Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) by Florence + The Machine.

    The looking glass, so shiny and new
    How quickly the glamor fades
    I start spinning slipping out of time
    Was that the wrong pill to take (Raise it up)
    You made a deal, and now it seems you have to offer up
    But will it ever be enough
    (Raise it up, raise it up)
    It's not enough
    (Raise it up, raise it up)

    Here I am, a rabbit hearted girl
    Frozen in the headlights
    It seems I've made the final sacrifice

    We raise it up, this offering
    We raise it up

    This is a gift, it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    I look around, but I can't find you
    (raise it up)
    If only I could see your face
    (raise it up)
    Instead of rushing towards the skyline
    (raise it up)
    I wish that I could just be brave

    I must become a lion hearted girl
    Ready for a fight
    Before I make the final sacrifice

    We raise it up, this offering
    We raise it up

    This is a gift, it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    Raise it up, raise it up
    (repeat)

    And in the spring I shed my skin
    And it blows away with the changing wind
    The waters turn from blue to red
    As towards the sky I offer it

    This is a gift, it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight
    (repeat)

    This is a gift

    Thank you. Finding songs for characters is one of those many, many useless skills I have.

    Speaking of. Me Against the World by Simple Plan could be two things, primarily, to me. One, Cadvan in his youth shortly after the incident with the revenant, and two, Zelika and how angry she is at the world. Because I always find a way to link everything back to Zello.

    We're not gonna be just a part of their game
    We're not gonna be just the victims
    They're taking our dreams and they tear them apart
    'til everyone's the same
    I've got no place to go, I've got nowhere to run
    They love to watch me fall, they think they know it all

    I'm a nightmare, a disaster
    That's what they always said
    I'm a lost cause, not a hero
    But I'll make it on my own
    I've gotta prove them wrong
    Me against the world
    It's me against the world

    We won't let them change how we feel in our hearts
    We're not gonna let them control us
    We won't let them shove all their thoughts in our heads
    And we'll never be like them

    I've got no place to go, I've got nowhere to run
    They love to watch me fall
    They think they know it all

    I'm a nightmare, a disaster
    That's what they always said
    I'm a lost cause, not a hero
    But I'll make it on my own
    I'm gonna prove them wrong
    It's me against the world
    Me against the world

    Now I'm sick of this waiting, so come on and take your shot
    You can spit all your insults but nothing you say is gonna change us
    You can sit there and judge me
    Say what you want to
    We'll never let you in

    I'm a nightmare, a disaster
    That's what they always said
    I'm a lost cause, not a hero
    But I'll make it on my own
    Me against the world

    I'm a nightmare, a disaster
    That's what they always said
    I'm a lost cause, not a hero
    But I'll make it on my own
    I've got to prove them wrong
    They'll never bring us down

    We'll never fall in line
    I'll make it on my own
    Me against the world

    EDIT. I forgot another song called Re: Your Brains. It makes me think of Hulls, despite the fact that they are not brain-eating zombies. Perhaps that scene at the Broken Teeth, with Cadvan as Tom and Likud as Bob.

    Heya Tom, it's Bob from the office down the hall
    Good to see you buddy, how've you been?
    Thing have been OK for me except that I'm a zombie now
    I really wish you'd let us in
    I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
    Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
    But here's an FYI: you're all gonna die screaming

    All we want to do is eat your brains
    We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
    All we want to do is eat your brains
    We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
    If you open up the doors
    We'll all come inside and eat your brains

    I don't want to nitpick, Tom, but is this really your plan?
    To spend your whole life locked inside a mall?
    Maybe that's OK for now but someday you'll be out of food and guns
    And then you'll have to make the call
    I'm not surprised to see you haven't thought it through enough
    You never had the head for all that bigger picture stuff
    But Tom, that's what I do, and I plan on eating you slowly

    All we want to do is eat your brains
    We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
    All we want to do is eat your brains
    We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
    If you open up the doors
    We'll all come inside and eat your brains

    I'd like to help you Tom, in any way I can
    I sure appreciate the way you're working with me
    I'm not a monster Tom, well, technically I am
    I guess I am

    I've got another meeting Tom, maybe we could wrap it up
    I know we'll get to common ground somehow
    Meanwhile I'll report back to my colleagues who were chewing on the doors
    I guess we'll table this for now
    I'm glad to see you take constructive criticism well
    Thank you for your time I know we're all busy as hell
    And we'll put this thing to bed
    When I bash your head open

    All we want to do is eat your brains
    We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
    All we want to do is eat your brains
    We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
    If you open up the doors
    We'll all come inside and eat your brains

    I'm not ashamed to admit it's one of my favourite songs right now.
