FANTASY SONG IN THE WORKS

I realized that a good fantasy book would not be complete without a good folk song. In medieval times, songs were not just about festivities. They were also a way to tell stories from generation to generation. I am in the process of brainstorming the lyrics of such a song for my fantasy book. In order to write the song, I will be utilizing some of the poetry skills I acquired during my recent college classes. This song will be written by the end of the first volume and immortalize a significant event that happens in the middle of the story.

MUSIC INSPIRATION: GODZILLA’S THEME

Because my autism allows me to better envision my stories through music, I found another song that can help in my future endeavors. The following video includes Godzilla’s classic theme song. In my opinion, this song is the theme song of all Kaiju and I cannot watch a Kaiju film without hearing this song in my head. As I brainstorm the groundwork for my future Kaiju story, I sit in my chair and listen to this song repeatedly. Each time I hear this song, the images and aspects of the story become increasingly more vivid. I look forward to when the my ideas for my new story are finally complete.

FINAL FANTASY XV: STAND BY ME

Because of the way my autism operates my mind, I am able to process music into images and incorporate those images into my writing. The music from the Final Fantasy franchise has always provided me with inspiration for my writing, specifically The One-Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII. Now, I found another song from the series that seriously ignited my imagination: the Final Fantasy XV version of Stand By Me. After listening to this music over and over, I was able to better visualize the bond of friendship that my characters share throughout my superhero universe. It warms my heart and makes it sing to the high heavens like a song bird wanting to fly.

MUSIC INSPIRATION: THE ONE-WINGED ANGEL

One of the songs that seriously ignite my imagination is The One-Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII, preferably the orchestra version from Advent Children. As I listen to this song, I can envision the Young Guardians’ final conflict with the main villain, Vogan. During this conflict, I can see the Young Guardians battling Vogan while constantly being at the mercy of his unstoppable power. With each sudden change in note, I can see every devastating attack, every desperate countermeasure, and every ounce of collateral damage. Every now and then, I could see the cold calculating gaze of Vogan’s soulless white eyes and standing amongst the corpses of his victims. As the song comes to a close, I could see the battle between Vogan and the Young Guardians reaching a cataclysmic conclusion in fire and multi-colored energy.
