Zeth's Music-Character Association Game


Sort of inspired by Nighty's musical game (which admittedly I doubt my ability to participate in), though it isn't all that similar. Straightforward premise, only really works as a game for those of you who have been hanging around me on Mercury. Luckily you're reading this on Mercury, so...I know you have been. I provide a link to a song, you listen to/watch it, then you try and guess which of my characters (SWTOR, GW2, Hunter's Realm, SSS, etc) I associate it with. The associations will come in three flavours: Easy, Hard and Impossible. The first person to correctly guess the musical track/character association gets to choose the difficulty of the next association. Some may have multiple correct answers.

FYI: I removed my track listings in the Realm and SSS, so you can't look those up. I have, however, not bothered tracking down every reference to every musical association I've ever made. Some of the Easy associations may be searchable somewhere, such as the one I'm goign to kick the fame off with.

So try and think like me, if you dare. :zethchan:

EDIT:
If it seems like nobody's getting anywhere (by which I mean more than a couple attempts proving fruitless), or upon request from you guys on the Hard and Impossible ones, I'll provide a Hint or two.

~~~~~~~~~~


Right, so the first association. It's one I would classify as Easy. If you hang around me, you'll know where you can find it posted with the characters (yes plural) I put it with. As you'll see from the song, it's also quite recent.

Well, despite the fact that this is supposed to be easy and I do hang around you, I didn't manage to find it. But, since you've said 'characters' and the chorus goes on about money and stars, I'm going to hazard a guess that it might possibly be Ask and Si'kozu.

You got it. You get to choose the difficulty of the next one.

You really don't have to 'find it'. It's supposed to be about guessing. More about the feel of the thing.

I think we'll try for another 'easy' one while we get used to this.

There's not a great deal to go on with those lyrics but since you've said 'she', I'm going to very tentatively suggest Vyr'esia, though she hasn't yet actually put in an appearance in her second fiction yet, so I'm probably way off the mark. (But I could imagine the general style of the music fitting her and there are one or two words or phrases that might suit her.)

You got it again, and just when I was coming in to drop an obvious hint too. You get to pick the next difficulty.

Ok, so we've had easy and impossible. I guess it ought to be hard next.

We'll err on the Easy side of Hard; how does that sound? If there was a Medium, this would probably fall into that.

Watch on youtube.com


EDIT:
Wow, you guys really don't like asking for hints do you? I got a little distracted or I would have given you one sooner. Anyway, HINT: Who is black and red and Gray all over?

Erm, that pointy red Star Wars Character that's the same species as Darth Maul? I don't think I ever knew his (?) Name.

Ugh! I'd thought of him but rejected him because he'd already come up in the first one. Should have gone with my gut instinct. XD Well done, Klarth.

Actually, when I first read the lyrics of Diablo they made me think of Syldenar, but obviously it couldn't be him. :P

You fell for my clever wiles. :zethchan:

Let's do another quite recent song.

Watch on youtube.com


HINT:
This one's actually quite hard for me since there aren't many hints I can give without giving away who he is.

I'm totally stumped with this one. It's clearly a male, from your hint, but, if the lyrics of the song represent him at all closely then it looks like it's someone in a dysfunctional relationship and I can't think of anyone. Can I assume the song reflects a current situation and not a past or future one? And, for that matter, a currently (or recently) active character?

It is a currently active character, but I think you may be taking the lyrics a LITTLE too literally. I mean I guess they could be construed that way, but I'd probably try to think more about what the Heart signifies more broadly.

Sometimes you just gotta take that plunge. Anyway. Next song. Pretty soon I'll run out of "recent" songs and have to send you on a voyage across the 90s and early 2000s.

Is the Name close to a Kind of Fruit, and also to a Kind of Truth believed by nobody? (The Imagery within the Video more than the Music itself is likely what is suggesting this).

And I was there for the 90's and early 2000's, so it may be an excellent Trip down Amnesia Lane (or else more Stuff I've never heard of).
