Pinch hit #9
Request 1 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Athena - CircusP & CrusherP (Song)
Fanart, Fanfic

Athena is the Goddess I pay most attention to. This song encapsulates a lot of who She is, but also it's about Her giving instructions—marching orders, perhaps—to a listener. Tell me about the listener: who is she, what is she doing, what does Athena need her to be doing instead? Does "release the goddess inside you" imply that the listener might undergo apotheosis, becoming a Deity herself as Ariadne and Heracles did?

Request 2 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Tomb of the King - Damh the Bard (Song)
Fanfic

Stories forgotten. Magic destroyed. And in the end, what gain, and to whom?

Letter: http://alexseanchai.dreamwidth.org/1632024.html


Request 3 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Mary Mary - SJ Tucker (Song)
Fanfic

Mary mother of Jesus had a hard life to live. Tell me about that.

Alternately: "slivers of the goddess that they never let us see" is the line that most strikes me in this song. In a polytheistic world, where apotheosis is not unheard of (and may well be how Mary's mortal son got to be a god in the first place), who was Mary, and who did she become?

(Bonus points if you cross this over with Arcade Fire's "Abraham's Daughter".)

Request 4 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Wild Maiden - Kellianna (Song)
Fanart, Fanfic, Podfic

Who is the Wild Maiden, and who are her dancers?

(This request is tagged Podfic because, while ordinarily I'm not much for podfic, I'm hoping for a fill that has music in. If you're not podficly inclined, though, no worries at all.)

Letter: http://alexseanchai.dreamwidth.org/1632024.html


Request 5 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Woman of the Earth - Spiral Dance (Song)
Fanart, Fanfic, Podfic

Divination and dancing and being out in the elements with the wild forces of nature. Feel the magic! Feel the music! The "rhythm of the land" and the "spiral dance" and the "songs that the old ones sang".

(This request is tagged Podfic because, while ordinarily I'm not much for podfic, I'm hoping for a fill that has music in. If you're not podficly inclined, though, no worries at all.)

Mother of the Crows - Seanan McGuire (Song)
Fanfic

This is such a perfectly polytheistic song, even though I know nothing of McGuire's religious beliefs and, to the best of my knowledge, the Mother of the Crows is McGuire's invention. How does that polytheism play out in the singer's life? What festivals does she celebrate for the Mother of the Crows? What does she do at regular intervals to honor Her, to make offerings to Her, to ask Her blessings? Who else does she worship, and what stories exist about the Mother of the Crows and the others of Her pantheon?

Earthquake Weather - Seanan McGuire (Song)
Fanart, Fanfic

Tell the story of the particular lines I quote in my letter. Weave in other elements of the lyrics if you can.

Letter: http://alexseanchai.dreamwidth.org/1632024.html


Request 8 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift (Music Video)
Fanfic

This seems like it's set in a land of magic, doesn't it? The trees growing from the sand and the earth as she walks by. The ethereal nature of that bright blue gown against the shadowed forest, against the snow. Falling through the sea into the desert and then the snowy forest, still damp with saltwater. The wolves that chased her earlier now standing tamely beside her.

The lightning is a particularly striking visual, as is the forest on fire. And the final moment, when the her who has been through all this touches the shoulder of the her who isn't visibly marked by these experiences.

"I remember" is a repeated line. What is the significance of her memory?

"She lost him, but she found herself, and somehow that was everything."

Letter: http://alexseanchai.dreamwidth.org/1632024.html


Request 9 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Which Witch - Florence + the Machine (Song)
Fanfic

The imagery is obviously a witch trial and witch burning, akin to those spoken of in Spiral Dance's "Burning Times". The oft-cited (certainly Spiral Dance cites it) statistic, which let me just point out is false, is that nine million European women died.

So. What did this woman do to be deemed a witch in need of burning? Is she really a witch to begin with?

Looking at the "never to return / but I never learn" and "say I won't return / but I never learn" lines: is reincarnation in play?

("We are the granddaughters of the witches you didn't burn" and "They tried to bury us; they didn't know we were seeds" and etc.)

If you want to play with the "nine million" story, what else is going on in this world that's resulting in nine million such women's deaths over the course of a couple centuries? (That's tens of thousands of witch burnings a year.)

Request 10 by AlexSeanchai (EllieMurasaki)
Dance in the Circle - Heather Alexander (Song)
Fanart, Fanfic

What are faerie promises worth? Faerie treasures, faerie rewards, faerie wisdom?

Letter: http://alexseanchai.dreamwidth.org/1632024.html


Pinch hits #5 and up are due at 11:59pm EDT Thursday 1 June. (Countdown).
