A song about twisted, obsessive, delusional infatuation...
I started writing this song years ago (when I was about 14). Originally, it was just about a crush that I had on a male librarian (don't ask).
When I started this DA account, I came across this old song and wanted to change it. So I decided to draw heavily upon a relationship in one of my favorite novels, Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. I wanted to capture in a song the obsession that Claude Frollo has for Esmeralda.
A song about the courtship and mating rituals of orb weaver spiders. The verses (the middle part) are from an acrostic poem I wrote for a friend (Nathanael Eagle) a long time ago (can you see his name spelled out?).
Yes, I know that arachnids comprise many cool critters (like scorpions!), not just spiders, but "arachnid love" sounds cooler than "spider love".
Sorry, I didn't make a recording of this yet. When I make one, I will post it so you can hear the song.

A new song I started composing on the road yesterday. I'm working on more verses. I didn't have Sarah/Jareth in mind when I first came up with this song, but I later realized it kind of fits their relationship...
Hear the song here, set to a Jareth/Sarah Labyrinth slideshow: [link]
Note: The last bridge is not in the recording because I just added it.
My current background story featuring my pink (YES PINK) Twi'lek, Jahnya, based in the lore and game Star Wars: The Old Republic.

If you find spelling mistakes, grammar issues or have suggestions please do not hesitate to ask. This close to Christmas my D.A. paid subscription has run out so I don't have one--that's why I can't "officially" ask for them--doesn't mean I don't want them still!
I fell into peer pressure and wrote a body image poem. It first started with chromeantennae's poem and spread like a wildfire across the writing community. I had a good time writing this, exploring what made me unique and how I could make my body image poem unique as well. Go read some of the other body image poems too! Ricky's made a feature of some of them here.
