This is my song for the LOTP prompt 'Mermay.' I didn't know how to write a song about mermaids without it being very on-the-nose so I changed it to water. I really hope you like it!
This song is about Sariel being consumed by her past and need for vengeance, knowing that she isn't yet ready, but refusing to let anyone else, especially fate, decide when she should be. It's about her laying down her own terms and taking control of her destiny.
Thank you to everyone who listens to and reblogs these, and thanks to LOTP for the prompts - I find them so creatively fulfilling even if they're just tiny snippets of songs.
Lyrics are below x
Water ripples over me, can't guarantee that I'm not drowning in memories Past the surface, feel the cold water in my lungs, like ice in my chest There's a claw of fear at my throat, a suffocating reminder of what I have to lose
The current is my past and I'm dragged home, at last, to meet my destiny Doesn't matter if I'm ready, I know that fate always comes for those who are left But it hasn't met me yet

Burning lamps kindle with the light of fireflies, Let our thoughts collide like mountains meeting the skies Rustic secrets that you plundered like a pirate as a child Vengeful cries wait to scream waiting, for the right time
Unlock your vault with treasures of euphoria and lies We are shining for who we are under the glistening starlight
The early bird gets the worm? Who tells this? Worms are also delicious in the afternoon. - The light was constantly changing but the bird and the worm remained the same ;-)
inspired by Umetora's "Jewel"
ITS 3:28AM AND I FINALLY GOT THE RIGHT LYRICS FOR THE SECOND VERSE
This is something I’ve touched on before with the noir AU and the makeup artist AU, but I really like the idea of an AU where America is a famous actor/some kind of other celebrity and Romano is not. Savino might be successful at whatever he does, but he’s just not famous to the level Alfred is and might not be in a field of work that could even get you famous.
Before they start dating (at least publicly), celebrity gossip magazines/websites and a lot of fans are confused about what’s going on with Alfred’s personal life. He’s an attractive guy and seems likable in interviews and public appearances, but he’s never dated a co-star, a director, or any other kind of celebrity. There aren’t even any credible rumors about him dating someone. And if someone started digging into Alfred’s life, they would find out that he hasn’t dated anyone at all.
Alfred could have theoretically had a lot of opportunities to be with various people (not that he’d even notice), but he just wants Savino. Savino might be his bodyguard/personal assistant/makeup artist/best friend from high school, etc. But whatever the exact relationship is, Alfred likes Savino because he treats him like any other person, not like he’s special or better than other people because he’s a celebrity. Alfred actually feels quite isolated sometimes, because a lot of people try to use him for their own gain or fawn over him because of how famous he is. He has very few genuine relationships, and he tries to stay close to the people who treat him as a person and not as “Alfred F. Jones, famous movie star.”
If Savino meets Alfred when he’s a celebrity, he would initially assume he has no chance with him romantically. He gets to know Alfred better, realizes how lonely he actually is, and understands that Alfred wouldn’t be shallow enough to reject someone for not being at the same “level” as him, but Savino still has insecurity issues. So I think he’d internally freak out about falling in love with a movie star and think “why would Alfred even want to be with me when he has so many other options?” There’s definitely some angst from his POV, but it’s misplaced angst, because Savino is literally the only person Alfred wants like that. And Alfred is the way I’d normally write him, which is majorly heart eyes at Savino’s existence, lol.
A funny scenario I could imagine is Alfred going on some talk show and the interviewer asking him if he’s dating or has his eye on anyone. (Maybe she asks about girls first, Alfred laughs and says no, then she asks him about guys.) Alfred gives some cryptic answer like “nobody you would’ve heard of,” and then gossip sites and over-invested fans try to figure out who it is.
