Allow me to share a folk song in Numen the Slayer, The Gold Phoenix Rises:
“The Skull, Ox, and Stars stand with pride, for their shame they can never hide.
Wounded by grief, the last Phoenix flew,
Its flock all but through.
With flames of vengeance, the Phoenix soared. To his enemies below, he fiercely
roared. One after another, the strongholds fell for they had been sent to Hell.
Then the False God laughs with malice as he claims his prize. The Skull, Ox, and Stars all meet their demise. They cry out for salvation, but cannot escape their damnation.
The Gold Phoenix rises through blood and fire, for all will feel his ire. All beasts of the north kneel to their new master out of fear of grim disaster.”
If Numen the Slayer were made into either a movie or television show, I would want its music to be like Celtic music. The reason for this is because this music reminds me of my Irish heritage. Essentially, if you lived in Gradaia, all of the music in every kingdom will sound like this. Check it out!
I have been writing a new fantasy book series. Allow me to present a tribute featuring aspects of my writing process and where I got my inspiration. Also, to set the tone, I added the opening theme of the classic fantasy film, Dragonheart.
At the medieval reenactment, I got to learn how to play the lute. I admit that my initial attempts were unsuccessful, but I got a good idea of how it feels when you play it. I might consider what I have learned from the point of view of a minstrel in my fantasy book.
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.
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.
