She Misses Shoes

She would totally wear those boots if she had feet.

I hope everyone had a good holiday and doesn’t feel to put out going back to work Monday. I know I’m trying to keep that stiff upper lip.

Oh, and since we haven’t had one a while:

READER PARTICIPATION TIME:

Name a character and a song that reminds you of them (with artist so we can all look them up XD).

Edit: I was going to listen to all of these and comment…but since there are so many I’ll probably just end up listening. Eventually. Have I mentioned you guys all rock? XD

On that note:

Song Listening Recommendation:

“Mordred’s Song” by Blinded Guardian

39 Comments


Well, Bliss isn’t helping her case in the slightest. XD
Also I disagree; while I like Lances boots, I would kill for a pair like Wiglafs. New item on the christmas list!
As for a song: Um. Um. I will get back to you on that, I swear!

Song….Bliss, with Francium by Hatsune Miku. XD It’s a random song that simply talks and talks in a high pitched upbeat tone, never mind the whole song is nonsense.

Brat, with Diva’s Lament from the Monty Python musical Spam-a-Lot. (‘I’ve been offstage for far too long, it’s ages since I had a song! Out shopping for a bush, well they can kiss my tush, it seems to me they’ve really lost the plot!’ )I can’t say who sings it exactly, but I know it’s The Lady of the Lake-the character- who sings it…

Those /are/ really cute boots…

I was gonna list that Blind Guardian song! But, uhm…

For Mordred, “When You’re Evil” by Volatire.

For Wiglaf, “Take On Me” by a-ha (It just does, darnit!).

For Driver, “Passenger” by Siouxie and the Banshees.

And for the group as a whole, “By the Sword” by Emilie Autumn. (It’s just in that timeframe, it has a sense of together-ness, just go with it…)

Bliss’ giddiness in the last panel is funny. XD And the orb zipping around in the air is amusing too.

Songs:

Security: “Bring Me Down” by Pillar

Azrael: “Animal I Have Become” by Three Days Grace

Driver: “Ladder In My Tights” by Amy Studt

Mr. Garrott: “Out of the Silent Planet” by Iron Maiden

Another thing, Bliss’ constant intoning of the word “Master” reminds me so much of Barbara Eden in “I Dream of Jeannie.” XD I’ll bet the theme music to “I Dream of Jeannie would suit her great.

I know only one track that adequately expresses frustrated ambition, narcissism and vanity to match Mordred:
Gary Numan — Stormtrooper in Drag

If you can handle the figurative in considering music as trouble and dancing as what one might do with such music then I would suggest for Wiglaf this: JUSTICE – D.A.N.C.E.

And I just have to say this for Arthur: Pyotr Tchaikovsky — Danse de la Fée-Dragée

….If more of your characters matched classical pieces I’d give you more but I’m done for now.

Hmmm…. Grace with that song… that’s umm… lemmee go google it… “You Ain’t Never Had A Friend Like Me” from that disney movie, Aladdin?
Especially the line about having some power in your corner now. I can actually see Grace telling Azrael a lot of the things that the genie tells Aladdin.

When you asked me I blanked and thought of one thing.

The whole group. and the song…. “I like chinese.”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04QoA44c23A

By monty python…

Don’t ask….. I won’t tell. :B

But in semi seriousness

Grace: “Enter Sandman”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bs2xPympvz4

Bliss: “Remedy”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHki6sF_ypE

(seriously the song is as ADHD as her.)

And then look it up on youtube.

The whole group: Pirate who don’t do anything.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n6SeZhbF_rA

and yes i had to get the video links….

……….Happy boys and Happy Girls by Aqua for Bliss (Nuff said), These things I’ll never say by Avril for Mordred (I kinda imagine him singing it to Wiglaf), Dude looks like a lady by Aerosmith for Driver (Sorry driver coldn’t find a song about a girl looking like a dude), and For your Enertainment by Adam Lambert for Arthur and seigfred

poor poor Bliss, I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t wear shoes.
Hey, I was wondering if you’d mind reading a story that I’m writing? see it’s on fictionpress.net and it’s called Blue Fire by CainReborn (or you know me) I would really apreciate it if you would tell me what you think about it.
P.S. Sorry for advertising while commenting on your comic.
P.P.S. I LOVE MORDRID AND WIGLAF!!

*started reading WAM about 1,5 year ago but never wrote any comment*
The only song I can think of at the moment… would be for Bliss. Dirty Track – Wszystko bez sensu (that’d be “Everything makes no sense” or sth similar). Exactly what it says on the tin, the lyrics are very random.

…oh, and… I was going to write something about the comic, but then I realised it would end as a wall of text with lots of squealing and I doubt anyone wants to see that XD

Artists are occult entities as well as humans, fan worship energizes them just like prayer may eventually wake up sleeping Cthulhu. I am not familiar with the exact rituals of preferred method of worship; isn’t there a FAQ entry or three that covers this yet?
If there isn’t my guess is that Liliy’s cult is still in its formative stages and a certain degree of liberty may be taken with the methods of worship as long as the forms and intent are generally close enough. I know that a method of worship that has been particularly approved of in the past was known as, “fan art.”

Boy… Bliss is very good at dodging away from what was asked… Or just that impossible to get to focus…

As for songs…

I can’t help but feel “The Chosen Ones” by Dream Evil kind of fit’s for Wiglaf… Partially due to heroic nature, and partially due to ability to wield a certain talking sword…

Mordred fit’s the song “When you’re evil” by Voltaire. Listen to the song and it’ll make sense, I assure you. I guess the title makes it as well.

Hmm… since you already used the Blind Guardian song….

Azzie (and most other employees of the Garrotts) – “Bodies” by Drowning Pool

Wiglaf and Bliss – “A Stray Child” from the dot Hack sountrack

Azzie, Wiglaf, and many other fighters – “Indestructible” by Disturbed

Gawain – “Sleeping Sun” by Nightwish

Azzie – “Hand of Sorrow” by Within Temptation

Wiglaf – “Just Call My Name” by Blackmore’s Night

Mordred – “I Guess It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” by Blackmore’s Night

Bliss – several Weird Al songs

There’s more, but that’s enough for now. :P

I heard the song “Please Don’t Leave Me” by Pink and I couldn’t help but think of the relationships between the WAM characters, particularly Mordred and Wiglaf. They drive each other insane and insult each other, but they still like having each other around. :$

When I read the question about theme songs this one just popped into my sleep deprived and still groggy morning brain….

She’s Not There by The Zombies
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5IRI4oHKNU

As for the rest I just KNOW that RUSH had at least a couple that would fit our two main characters.
Bytor and the snow dog for one but there were a few others from that era that I think might be more appropriate … I’ll get back to you all on that when I wake up.

Wiglaf: “Peer Gynt” Suite by Edvard Grieg

Hnaef: “I’m in Love with My Computer” by Dottie Burman (it has to happen sometime as he grows up)

Janus: “Chipmunks Roasting O’er an Open Fire” by Bob Rivers & the Twisted Chipmunks

Bystanders: “New Day Dawning” by Above; “Merry Christmas from Chiron Beta Prime” by Jonathan Coulton

Security: “Flight of the Bumblebee” by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Boudica: “Memory of Trees” by Enya (no, I don’t understand that, either)

Driver and Brat: “I Know My Love” by the Chieftains

Sedrick: “Superfabulous” by BT (weird, huh?)

Lancelot: Lately, “Moving On Again” by Benny Hill

Gawain about Galen: “Lover’s Cross” by Jim Croce (unfortunately, thinking of Gawain singing it utterly ruins any deep meaning to the song)

Mordred: The “Winter” portion of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”

Arthur: “December ’63 (Oh, What a Night)” by Franki Valli and the Four Seasons (it was the clubbing scene that did it)

Camlann: “You Talk Too Much” by Joe Jones

Ricky: “Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow” ver. Beach Boys; “Witch Doctor” by Ray Stevens (both basically because Ricky doesn’t talk)

Bliss: “Angelica” by Harry Belafonte; “Moon Song” by Bob Schneider

Horatio: “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by the Proclaimers

Generic Burglar: “Round and Round” by Bob Schneider

Azrael: “Metal & Steel” by Bob Schneider

Galen: “The Ballad of Dr. Sigmund Freud” by the Chad Mitchell Trio

…and that’s enough for now.

Don’t remind me about Skullcrusher Mountain by Johnathan Coulton! Worst case of music/lyrics dissonance ever.

That aside, “Frustrated”, “Run”, or possibly “Adrainne” by Day of Fire all make me think of Azrael. Not sure why the last one crops up, it just does. Maybe the song “Through the Fire” too, if only because of how it starts. If you look them up, be warned: if you can hear the piano part for “Through the Fire” at the start, you have it too loud. Just saying

Reply

If Bliss misses shoes would that mean she at one time she could wear them?
oh and my song is (drum roll)

Voltaire’s-”Goodnight Demon Slayer”
it would be sung by Ricky to Hagen when she was little (so cute :$ ! and i can imagine Ricky having a nice voice)

or

Voltaire’s “land of the dead”
for Mordred

Reply

Honestly, Voltaire has a song for just about everyone in the cast. He just does.

Personally I’d say “This Ship’s Going Down” for Wiglaf, just for the irony. Maybe “When You’re Evil” for Azrael or Mordred. Possibly “Down at the Bottom of the Sea” for Bliss, just because it’s fast, upbeat, and if you miss even one bit, the rest is nonsense.

Two song submissions, ironically with the same name:

“The Requiem” by Linkin Park; for Arthur Garrot Sr., or at least his younger incarnation.

The “Dies Irae” section of Mozart’s Requiem Mass for Janus. I’ll probably be shunned for saying this, but I’ve always found this faster paced adaptation of the original work to be… inelegant. It is, however, powerful, and “Powerful and inelegant” describes Janus perfectly to me.

Reply

Okay so music here I go.

Wiglaf- Greensleeves
Mordred- Killing Time by Mordred
Azreal- Hell’s on its Knees by Dark Angel

If I think of more I’ll tell ya’ll.
