[MONTHLY THEME] July: Twinkling Teams ~ Due July 31st!

Post by Aerlith on Tue Jul 01, 2014 10:30 am

July is the month of Tanabata. Because of this, the theme for this month will be...

Twinkling Teams!

Tanabata is a holiday for lovers in Japan, and because the Milky Bridge represents the magpie bridge that connects the lovers on the 7th of July, that is where the "twinkling" part of the name comes from. Stars~. For this month, sing a duet with someone, do a self-duet of a duet song, or sing a song related to the sky/moon/stars! Have fun! 

Disclaimer: The admin occasionally comes up with completely ridiculous theme names because she loves to alliterate. This is one of those times. She also likes to make you all work for your badges!

Guidelines

  • Your entry must be done in the month of July to be accepted.
  • Pick a song that is originally sung as a duet. You can either sing the song with another person or self-duet it. Another option is to pick a song and script it into a duet, then sing it with another person. Your last option (if you want to sing solo) is to pick a song related to the sky/moon/stars (and/or Tanabata) and work with that for your entry. Stars can be metaphorical or interpreted your own way (ex. celebrities, ha. ha. ha.).
  • Even though this is inspired by Tanabata, the duet does not need to be related to Tanabata or one sung between lovers.
  • Your piece of work does not need to be vocaloid-related.
  • If you are covering a song, it should be at least 1:30 minutes long. If the song you are covering is not that long and it is the full song, please let Aerlith know in advance.
  • If you wish to write translyrics, please write translyrics for the whole song. 
  • If you are doing art, please do at least half-body! A background is preferable, but if you can't do that, that is fine, too.
  • In one or two sentences, please explain how your entry fits the theme.


Not sure what to do?

Name of your entry: Painted Heart (Zither ver) 畫心(古箏版) Self Duet
Why it fits the theme: It's a rather sad love song about a woman having to come to terms that the man she loves loves another instead.  Although the original song was sung by just one person, I made it a self duet for the purpose of this month's entry.


I'm also sorry if I butchered the mandarin >___<

Hmm... That sounds like it'd be a bit different from the Tanabata theme itself. Tanabata is the story of two lovers who are torn apart. If you can find a way to interpret the song that way, that would be fine then. But if it is about someone wanting to ask the person out... well, they are already together in the holiday, just not physically. xD; 

That or I'm just misinterpreting what you're saying. <<

Why it fits the theme: Well, I chose the cheap way out and did solo cover section, and the reason why it fits the theme of stars is because... the celestial fox, portrayed by Rin in the PV, eventually turns into a shooting star. I don't really know what else to say about it.

I have a question regarding my song selection: would "breakable heart" by Lyn be valid? it's a song about a girl feeling frustrated and sad because everyone around her keeps telling her that her boyfriend was "no good" and that she should break up.

it's not a duet or really about lovers being torn apart, but i thought it connects with the fact that in the magpie story, the two lovers were in the first place separated because the sky king didn't approve of their relationship.

or is that interpretation too much of a stretch?

Yes, that would be fine, since it carries a similar theme. c: I think the way you would argue it would be fine.

Celestial lovers separated by the Milky Way?
Tanataba?
This sounds familiar..
I think this song suits just right for this month's theme, the lyrics are here if you're too lazy to listen to the song.

Name of your entry: 1/6 Out of the Gravity~Miku
Why it fits the theme: Though the song is not a duet, the song is using taking someone to the moon as a way to symbolically relieve someone of their sadness. Sadness is weighing the receiver of the song down like gravity and as Odo P said in an interview, "The gravity on the moon is one-sixth of that on the earth. If we could go to the moon, our body would become lighter. Then I thought her sorrow would become one-sixth of that she has."
....That was probably a way too in-depth description as to why this song fits the theme.XD

Submission - Crescent Moon

Post by YaPhoenix on Sun Jul 13, 2014 11:21 pm

Name: YaPhoenix
Link to your entry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVstG0v5IaQ
Name of your entry: 
上弦の月/Crescent Moon/Jougen no Tsuki [YaPhoenix]

Why it fits the theme: According the English translation I read "Crescent Moon", is about a man (played by Kaito) unable to fulfil his love's desire for someone in the aftermath of a war (i.e. the war in "Senbonzakura"). The crescent moon is a motif in the song and while it is not a star.... They're both in the sky and he's looking up at them both....... Right?
Sorry, I hope this is alright.

Hoho. 16 days left to do a duet~ I missed the manly monthy theme since I was on vacation (plus I'm having it tweaked at the moment)--- but does anyone want to do 

Alluring Secret~Black Vow with me? Luka/Kaito's version? OvO
It's about an angel that fell in love with a "human"/same gender that helped her and bites into chaos' apple to turn into a human male. However, it turns out the "human" was actually a half devil. Thus, she too wants chao's apple to turn into one. Well...I'd take forever to explain so maybe I should link the PV ehehe. In the end, they are on a long journey to meet once more, connected by a vow (more or less like Orihime/Hikoboshi's longing to meet again--but due to certain circumstance can't)
