    Every time this song comes on the radio i think of galley.

    I still believe in your eyes;
    There is no choice,
    I belong to your life
    Because I will live
    To love you someday;
    You'll be my baby
    And we'll fly away
    And I'll fly with you,

    I have always heard about these guys but there is so much reading I really doubt I would ever get around to it. Kudos on rping them for like 2+ years. Heh, the rp I am in has just celebrated its third birthday.

    Oh, If we're posting songs that remind of of boat trolls, here's this:

    It very much strikes me as a Bel/Galley song. Especially Bel.
    Also holy heck youtube. this must be one of those songs everyone makes a million amvs to.

    awwyeah

    hey right on let's have some galley songs


    baby galley abducted to space

    "through fatty coils emerging
    some other thought it's thinking
    scratch mark left across the surface of your mind
    the hour is now upon us, the hour has now arrived"


    lonely shipwreck galley

    "bye bye empire bye bye
    shallow water channel and time"


    galley finally makes friends with his anger

    "Cell-infection,
    Mass-destruction
    Program for the final function
    Lab-rat king, rescue team
    Save me from the next life

    Give me the sound, to see
    Another world outside that’s full of all the broken things that I made
    Just give me a life to bleed
    Another world outside that’s full of all the awful things that I made"

    ...i am really into @Vast Derp 's fantroll ok

    Song for Galley in book 2.

    This body's not a temple, it's a prison (Yeah)
    And every wall inside here is on fire (Yeah)
    But I can't say that I mind my body burning (Yeah)
    Cause this body's not a temple it's a prison (Yeah)

    Also, Sunslammer Galley.

    I wake up every morning
    to the sound of motors roaring
    they are drowning out these voices in my head
    at night while I am sleeping I still hear the angels speaking but I can't recall a single thing they said
    I see their lips move clearly I feel their presence near me
    but all their unearthly wisdom just slips through the cracks
    I push I strain I wrestle with my brain I retch, I shake, I cry until I break
    it burns it hurts I tumble to the earth and as I fall I feel myself relax.

    Oh yes. Galley's backstory is very like the Icarus narrative. I wonder if that's why Luka chose the name Sunslammer for the ship?

    I dunno! I picked the name of my helm's ship based on what sounded the most pretentious and imperial (Heavenspear for a little cargo ship). Sunslammer certainly sounds more meaningful, especially if you factor in how dangerous the sun is for trolls, how little self-preservation Galley has, and the Icarus parallels.

    EDIT: Or, could just be after the homestuck song.

    Jason webley is one of my favorite artists. Dance while the sky crashes down is my sburb headcanon-theme song.

    OH YEAH HUH. I KNEW THAT. But yeah the whole name thing plus the crashing planetside sounds a lot like flying too close to the sun/falling into the ocean. And I mean, then there's the whole thing of like, ideological symbolism as well.

    btw, i haven't even started reading it yet, haha. but i've seen some of the art and read some of the discussions and stuff about, like, the hogwarts au and whatnot.

    yah we're feeling out the idea of moving the rp over here since the format's better

    That'd be awesome! It'd make it a lot easier for some of us to follow, too. (And I might have a further push to leave Tumblr, if I don't have "what if boat trolls" as an excuse)

    By the way, @jacktrash, what is Bel's stepdad? I saw that art that Roach did and I got confuzzled.

    I think the egg Reggie hatched is going to be Bel-blue and take to lususing him, iirc?
     
  19. jacktrash

    jacktrash spherical sockbox

    yeah, it just happens to be the same blue as bel, so it kinda imprints on him and starts bossing him around. :D

    of course, it hasn't happened yet, and there's many a slip twixt drunken pesterchum plotnoodle session and actual rp.
