Many songs ago
Music was born into silence
so as to fill the universe with song.
But Silence was angered
by this disturbance of his slumber
and vowed to eat up all the melodies
that Music was creating.
And so Music flew from land to land
blessing its inhabitants with her gift
so that they may one day unite in song
to answer the threat of Silence.
*cut/fade to scene facing The Spirit of Music who is addressing a gathering of the different races*
Friends and musicians, this day is now upon us. (panning shot of each race - face on - as they listen)
You have all been summoned here to unite as one and defeat silence once and for all!
You just leave this to us Trolls!
We'll summon a mosh monster to punch that bloody bloke's lights out!
Ew how neanderthal!
besides he's too strong, he'll just punch you right back!
Let us, The Princesses summon our candy monster to rain down glitter over the beast!
Ugh what the hell is that gonna do?!
Besides, your manufactured attack will be way too predictable.
We, The Glooms need to summon a bleak cloud of darkness to shower the beast with shards of melancholy.
*snort* Yeah that might work for a while but he'll just snap out it.
Leave this to The Engineers! Our high-tech robot will catch him off guard and shoot super-charged lasers at him!
Glooms: ugh a laser shooting robot?! that's so commercial it's never gonna work..
Princesses: There's not even any glitter in that plan
Trolls: what the bloody hell are you on about you wraaaaa
Engineers: I swear sometimes i think we're the only ones around here with a brain, i've met bread smarter than these ideas
Silence cannot be defeated by any one one of you. It will take all your combined talents - to create.. one song!
ugh.. am i really expected to compromise the purity of my music?
Music: (Spoken as soundtrack rises to a valiant crescendo)
only with one song will you all prevail..!
now go, prepare.. and
*music cuts off * .. oh crap here he is. good luck
* Music floats to the sidelines with popcorn and watches on*
Princesses + engineers + glooms + trolls :
AAAA!!!! *collective scream* (the aa's will appear as text too)
* Silence eats up all the screams (aaa's) and then there is nothing silence, the characters all keep screaming for a second with no sound being emitted and when they realise there is an awkward pause*
uh.. alright. so what we doin?
guys! i think i have a plan..
*all the following is sung in their respective styles, as we watch each group summon specific manifestations of their music*
(* VO artists don't worry about the next 4 lines for now, we'll make a separate request for this 'song' part )
we'll use our sweet, predictable patterns to lure him and make him feel all safe and secure.. then
our high-tech machines will shoot lasers at his head to daze him, confuse him and fill him with dread
now while he's all angsty and confused our somber cloud will depress his mood
then our mosh monster will take the stage - feel his fiery fists of rage!
* Silence is knocked out with a punch*
you guys, we did it!
From that day forward, Music was free to spread from land to land.
Even Silence found a place to play between the notes!
And while the Trolls, Glooms, Engineers, and Princesses each went their separate ways, to sing their separate songs,
They were all remembered ever after for that legendary victory,
united by the Spirit of Music,
playing together as one.
ugh what a bunch of [BLEEP]ing sell-outs..
