I'm sure it's been done, but I couldn't resist. 


White Flag
 (a filk)
 

I know you think that I shouldn’t still love them

Or write it down

But if I didn’t write it, well they’d still have felt it

Where’s the sense in that?  


I promise I’m not trying to make your life harder

Denying your OTP 


I will go down with my ‘ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag upon my blog

They’re in love and always will be


I know that it’s not your pairing 

But it’s right there, it’s obvious

It causes nothing but trouble

I understand if you can’t believe in it

But their love will never truly be over

It’s the one thing that makes sense


I will go down with my ‘ship

And I won’t put my hands up and surrender

There will be no white flag upon my blog

They’re in love and always will be

This came about in large part because I completely misunderstood someone on Twitter.  Suffice it to say that the original request was prompted by someone who really deserved a smack with a trout, not just someone causing momentary annoyance. 

Despite my dislike of the word "asshole" (I prefer the tidier ambiguity of "ass"), however, this made me snort immoderately when I found it again, so I hustled up a third verse and hope it may amuse my readers. 

*ahem* 

You are an asshole/I will pitch you off this roof
Or shoot you with a ray gun/and laugh as you go poof
I’ll toss you to the yeti/add poison to your tea
And then there’s nitro--just/get away from me! 

CHORUS: 
You are an asshole, everybody knows it
You are an asshole, you’re a total waste of space
You are an asshole, your every move just shows it
You are a…know what?  I’m getting out the mace. 

Defenestration’s nice/and so are hand grenades
I’ll bolt you to the asphalt/and schedule the parades
There’s plague and flu and rabies/or holes in the pontoons
I’ll dip you in minced chicken/and summon the Maine Coons! 

Ninjas in your sock drawer/vipers on your car*
Vampires, ghouls, and goblins/you know that this means war
I’ll drop you off a mountain/after applying the duct tape
I’ll write the Potter fandom/and tell them you hate Snape! 

*Vinshield vipers, naturally.

I am suddenly envisioning the cast of Blake's 7 in the roles of Inception.  

Blake as Dom, of course, and Avon as Arthur.  The tormented hero and the cynical, organized companion. 

Servalan as Mal; she was even a mother in canon, if briefly. 

Cally as Ariadne, I think; the outsider introduced to a new culture, a bit innocent, but possessing skills the others don't have or can't match.  Dayna is more a fit in age, but she's just too single-minded. 

And, inevitably, Vila as Eames, though he hasn't a noticeable talent for disguise.  Still, he'd supply the witticisms and the cool interest, the necessary foil to the intensity and the pragmatism. 

Alas, there's no place to put the others--Jenna and Zen and Orac and Gan and Dayna and Tarrant and Soolin, though Travis could easily play a Cobol thug.  Nor is there an immediate match for Miles or Saito.  Or are there?  It's been so long since I watched the series... 

"Other people's property comes naturally to me."  Tell me you can't hear that coming out of Eames' mouth. 

Weird.

Today I:

Ate dinner with some colleagues from work; 

Went to a bar afterwards with them and played pool;

And had to evacuate on the bus home because it caught on fire. 


Is this really my life?  It's feeling pretty surreal right now...

[livejournal.com profile] laura27md took me out for dinner tonight, and one of the waiters was practically a dead ringer for Tony Stark.  *laughter*  As she said, it was a good thing he wasn't our waiter, because our composure could not have been kept. 

Dinner was delicious, too!

Just because I want to show off my new one.  Bonus points if you know the quote.  :P

I hear it was snowing yesterday in every state but Florida.  Including Hawaii.  This amuses me all out of proportion.

Did you know that you can fit roughly sixty paperbacks in a standard printer-paper box?  U.S. paperbacks, that is, the British ones are a smidge taller. 

It makes collection calculations a little easier, too.

Okay, I just tried the I Write Like meme that's running around.  The first time, with some Green Laurel, I got Dan Brown.  Never having read anything by him, I can't say whether it's accurate, but honestly I never thought of a straightforward kidnap romance being on the same level as The Da Vinci Code, whatever level that might be.  

So next I put in Spare Me in its entirety.  CSI fluff.  And it tells me I write like...

...H.P. Lovecraft. 

XD  I don't think the code is quite accurate...I mean, I didn't invoke Cthulhu at all.
