THE 5-PART WRITING SPECIAL // part 5



The last part of Julian Daventry's 5-Part Writing Special has arrived, and we're concluding this epic month-long tag with a grand finale of awesomeness! (wow, the time has just flown on by, hasn't it?)

As you can see by the graphic above, this Friday is all about our WIP aesthetics, art, and music! There are no set-in-stone questions or "rules" for today - everyone is going to share however much they want in however way they want. Fun, fun, fun!

I'm afraid I don't have any artwork to share. In fact, this is going to be a fairly short post. 1) I'll talk a little bit about the movie soundtrack that fits with Dusted Red (more wonderfully that I could have hoped for, eeeep). 2) I'll share four character collages I've whipped up, combined with lyrics from the special songs that fit with those characters! :D



~DUSTED RED'S SOUNDTRACK~



Image result for miss peregrine's home for peculiar children soundtrack


The movie soundtrack for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I've never read the books, and even if/when I do, I don't know if I'll watch the movie. But who cares?? The music is GOLD. Its vibe is very similar to
Dusted Red's vibe, and quite a few of the pieces have a ticking clock in the background. Which. Is. Just. Perfect. Because yes, the sound of a ticking clock is metaphorically (and recurringly) involved.

Enoch's Dolls captures the lighter quirky parts of Dusted Red perfectly!

Arrival At The Island is so. totally. Neverland.

Barron's Experiment fits the intense scenes like a CHARM.

Go To Her is for feelsie/romantic scenes. :')

Aaaand then The Augusta is for ESPECIALLY EPIC scenes.

And more, duh. Basically all of them, or else this wouldn't be THE ultimate Dusted Red soundtrack.

Give one of them a listen (titles are clickable) and tell me your thoughts in the comments!!!



~CHARACTER COLLAGES~


FEAST YOUR EYES. *cough* Or don't. No pressure or anything...

^^^ This is my attempt at a mini intro. How about we allow the pictures to steal the show now, hmmm?

I miss my home
But there's a fire burning in my bones
Still believe
Yeah, I still believe


This song portrays my main character's strength incredibly well. The you-can't-tell-me-what-to-do tone + the stubbornly determined lyrics are all very Delmy!


And I don't really care if nobody else believes
'Cause I've still got
A lot of fight left in me


~~~




I'm sick of the past I can't erase
A jumble of footprints and hasty steps I can't retrace
The mountain of things I still regret
Is a vile reminder that I would rather just forget


This song is sad and feelsie, and the lyrics are an excellent match for Hansel's struggles and problems. <3


The fire I began, is burning me alive
But I know better than to leave and let it die


~~~




You don't know the half of it
You don't know my secrets
Listen close, my darling
Because I don't want to say it

It's an upbeat, happy-sounding song, and yet the lyrics are so DARK (and fit really well with some stuff that isn't even addressed until the sequel). Which is the exact kind of person Peter Pan is! He truly is a fun-loving guy, it's just that his past is... exceptional. To say the least.


You're in love with the ghost, ghost, ghost
And it really haunts me at night



~~~





Okay, so it seems I don't have any songs with lyrics for my dear fairy character... :/ I suppose you'll have to make do with the collage only.

Or maybe I could make up for it with some short snippets instead. What say you?



She stormed up to him and jabbed him in the chest with one finger. "No, I don't. I've told you it many times - I'm sick of your flattery."

-

Tink groaned loudly, then spun around with a suddenness that made her cloak swish dramatically. Something about her wings made me barely comprehend what she said next. "You need to stop going around promising things to people when you don't even know what the promises are! Or who the people are either, for that matter."

-


"I'll meet you there," Tink said, smiling once before poofing into a small hovering pinprick of light.



~~~


Those are all the collages! And lyrics. And snippets. I'm super duper excited to hear what you guys think! I'm also very much excited for the other participants' posts, the URLs of which are down below! Everyone's posts are going to be AWESOME, I just know it. xD



Which collage is your favorite? O.O
If you listened to any of the Miss Peregrine tracks (or charries' songs), what are your thoughts?
PRAY TELL. I'd truly love to know these things. :D
What do you use to make collages? (I use Canva.) Time to chat, friends!

  9. I love Hansel's hair, Lila. ;D And all your character collages are so pretty! (None for Goldi or Gretel, though? I wouldn't have minded putting a face to the mute-and-slightly-creepy kid... ;P)

    Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - I haven't seen the movie, but I had a quick listen to the playlist, and that will definitely be one I'm coming back to! (The book, I've read; I found it pretty scary?? probably I'm just not used to spooky-type things [and shouldn't read them when I'm the only one awake at night xD])

    1. Lol, I decided I didn't want to post the whole face. The guy is a fairly known model, I think... :D (I didn't have time! Creating 4 collages in time was challenging enough, though I will probably end up making more later. And then perhaps sharing, idk. xD)

      Isn't it epic??!! (And thanks for the input on the books - I'm not too keen on SCARY scary things, so I shall have to look into it more. *nods* xD)
