Achrennight Concert, 3/27/2004, Daerlynn’s Concert Series, Arthe Hollow Inn

As transcribed by Mykk Dalys

It has been 375 years, 245 days since the Victory of Lanival the Redeemer.
It is the 7th month of Moliko the Balance in the year of the Iron Toad.
It is currently summer and it is mid-morning.
You feel somewhat certain it's somewhere about the Anlas of Hodierna's Blessing.

The sky above is a bright blue, and free of clouds.

[Arthe Hollow Inn, Common Room]
The room is filled with long, low tables and stools, where several people sit eating hearty bowls of Arthe Hollow's popular lamb stew. A large stone fireplace dominates one wall. Daisy Burdock, the inn's cook and waitress, crosses the room carrying a precarious arrangement of bowls and plates. She stops briefly to tease and joke with a regular customer or glance out the window. A sign is posted prominently next to the archway. You also see some wooden stairs, a wooden menuboard, an open doorway, and a polished wooden bar.

Concert

Mykk asks, "So, has Achrennight performed a concert since the original Dreamheart series?"
Achrennight says, "Nope"
Achrennight winks at Mykk.
Mykk says, "Wow."
Dreamheart smiles.
Mykk says, "See what you started, Dreamheart? The trouble you cause."
Dreamheart laughs softly, trying to hide her amusement.

Daerlynn recites:

"Hello, everyone!"

Daerlynn smiles.
Mykk says, "Looks like a few Bards dusted their traveling cloaks off to be here."

Daerlynn recites:

"I want to welcome everyone to the 64th Arthe Dale concert!"

Shavay asks, "Sixty-four? Already?"
Shavay says, "Where does the time go."
Achrennight looks at Shavay and shrugs.

Daerlynn recites:

"Thank you all so much for coming!"

Daerlynn recites:

"Tonight we have a treat!"

Daerlynn recites:

"Aye, I was wandering through Theren and saw this vision of loveliness... and lo and behold, it was our performer tonight!"

Achrennight looks at Daerlynn and blushes.

Achrennight clears her throat, then runs through some notes on a vocal scale. Wow, she sounds good!

Niteshiver exclaims, "wow you sound good!"
Useff says, "And what a smile"
Useff beams at Achrennight!

Daerlynn recites:

"I would ask that we show the performer tonight all of the respect that we would want shown to us..."

Daerlynn recites:

"Let's hear it all for....."

Daerlynn yells, "Achrennight!!"



Achrennight chuckles.
Achrennight blushes, the tips of her ears turning a delicate scarlet hue.
Achrennight says, "Yes, flattery and drinks do the trick every time"
Niteshiver says, "long live flattery"

Achrennight says, "So, in honor of that, a short little poem"

Achrennight recites:

    "See the happy moron,
     He doesn't give a damn!
     I wish I were a moron--
     Ye gods! Perhaps I am!"

Achrennight just blew Daerlynn a kiss.


 

Achrennight says, "I honestly am not sure where to begin this concert, I usually just sing for fun"

Daerlynn exclaims, "This *is* fun!"
Achrennight laughs!
Elenelear says to Achrennight, "that's what we're here for "
Xixist asks, "Whats funner than this?"
Achrennight says, "Fair enough"
Xixist grins.
Daerlynn says, "... for us, anyway..."
Donalisa nods at Daerlynn, obviously agreeing with her views.
Daerlynn hums to herself.
Dewsong asks, "something to drink to, or make out to?"
Dewsong grins.
Daisy places some modwyn wine on the bar.
Useff points at Dewsong.
Grimsel snickers at Dewsong.
Useff taps his nose.
Daerlynn says, "No make-out songs!!"

Achrennight asks, "Or, a rather embarassing song about myself. Would that be fun?"

Achrennight seems to be waiting for something.

Keresyk says, "I'm sure it will be, Ma'am."
Keresyk blushes, the tips of his ears turning a deep shade of red.

Achrennight laughs!
Achrennight kisses Keresyk on the nose.
Achrennight says to Keresyk, "No need to be formal with me. Gets me nervous"

Keresyk says, "maybe not, Ma'am... but Mom'd box my ears if I weren't."



Achrennight says, "Well, here's a tale.. sorry if it's long winded"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Lost and alone, scared and unknown
     This is how I used to be,
     But time is proven to change all things
     Including me..."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I have wandered far
     In my many years,
     And all the sights I've seen
     Brought me laughter and tears."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My first days in the bardic guild
     Were lonely at best
     I knew no one, had no coin
     And in my guildhall lay to rest."

Achrennight says, "Ok, so I have a quiet side... no matter what anyone else may tell you."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "A bardess named Brite
     Took my hand, a smile on her face.
     She gave me much advice
     And showed me I had a place."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I grew in the guild
     And had many friendships too.
     Then a bard named Razic
     Took me as his daughter true."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Learning the ways of these realms,
     And hunting with family
     Filled my life with memories,
     And were oft the death of me."

Achrennight says, "And there's one thing I've learned for certain. Itharr's Song and my life seem to parallel... unfortunately for me."
Achrennight smirks.
Silvyrfrost chortles softly at some secret joke.

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My first time a'hunting
     I learned something too late..
     On buying armor when you're young
     Be certain to buy a breastplate!"

Achrennight exclaims, "I also learn the hard way, from example. This might also explain my habit for forgetting my armor in a fight!"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Or my first time in snowbeasts
     I was the youngest of a pair.
     Yet with one 'lucky' blow
     I ended up both here.. and there!"

Achrennight exclaims, "That's right, sliced through the middle. At least I already had a paladin there!"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "As for rescue missions
     They can be the best,
     But running drunk into the Hive
     Can lay you, quickly, to rest."

Achrennight says, "It's rather embarassing to send another rescue team for both the original party and yourself. Worse still is the second team being your friends. You never live it down..."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And once I felt I'd gained my feet,
     Pleased with all I did possess,
     Something I did not see arrived,
     The war with the Gorbesh."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Once the war had passed
     My wandering feet did fall
     On paths far from the realms I knew
     And I unable to hear its call."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "So much I had lost
     And losing more was my fear
     I wandered far and then returned.
     What seemed a blur, had been many a year."

Achrennight says, "I needed the time to think. I had so many things change in my life, and I still regret both leaving, and never really saying goodbye."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Many faces I knew were gone
     And new ones taken their place.
     From the cities I did flee
     Seeking quiet, open space."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I felt alone, I felt unknown
     So much I'd known was gone.
     From place to place I wandered,
     My stubborness pushed me on."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "New places had been found,
     New places to explore!
     Maybe there I could find
     Some happiness as once before."

Achrennight exclaims, "Yes, new places, new shops.. The temptation was too great to resist!"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I heard tell of Horse Clan
     Out nestled in the grass.
     My last thought was "Arzumos?"
     And you know what came to pass..."

Achrennight says, "That's right. Dead again. Who would have thought.."
Achrennight grins wryly.

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I got back on my feet
     And, in disgust, I fled
     Then I did meet a Rangah sweet,
     And followed where he led."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "After him, I met a lass
     Fair of face and voice so true.
     Her songs had entranced me
     And I knew just what to do."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Between them both I found
     My strength to carry on,
     To find my friends and family,
     And the courage to write this song."

Achrennight curtsies.

Achrennight says, "And, since neither Nilme or Izzit are here to defend themselves tonight"
Achrennight grins impishly.
Achrennight says, "I wish I could deny that half that song weren't true"



Achrennight says, "Well, while I figure out which fun song to sing, I might as well sing a song written about my daughter Nilme"

Achrennight says, "I really should get around to titling this song.. but here it is. A song for Nilme"

Achrennight quietly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "She was sitting in the guild, quiet and forlorn.
     I sat down, smiled and asked her tale.
     A tale of sorrow she did weave, like I've heard before,
     But only in the ballads from the days of yore."

Achrennight sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And in her eyes, I saw hope,
     That chased away her fears.
     Her song, taken from her heart,
     And all her tender years."

Achrennight longingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "For all her years, she'd been through much.
     It made my heart ache and yearn,
     To give her something to smile for,
     Just like in the ballads from days of yore."

Achrennight wistfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And in her eyes, I saw fears,
     That brought back memories old.
     Her song, I had taken to heart,
     And it made me grow bold."

Achrennight tenderly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I offered her a place in my family,
     A place in my heart and soul.
     She smiled and is alone no more,
     Her song became a ballad of days of yore."

Achrennight lovingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And in her eyes, I see love,
     That chased away her strife.
     In her I feel naught but pride,
     That will last me all my life."

Achrennight gazes down at the floor.
Achrennight blushes, the tips of her ears turning a delicate scarlet hue.

Achrennight says, "I just wish I had half her talent in writing songs as she"



Achrennight says, "Maybe this song will answer some of why I'm a bard"

Achrennight says, "This song is entitled Soul Bard"

Achrennight quietly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "One dark night as I wandered down the road to Crossing
     Through a forest I made my way
     When out of the blackness and the silence of night
     A bard's voice began to sing
     The sound of that voice, it pierced the dark
     And echoed inside my soul
     I followed the music through the dark wood
     To a clearing where firelight did glow"

Achrennight quietly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "In silence I crept, not a sound did I make
     My presence concealed by the trees
     I looked 'round the clearing and I spied a strange man
     With a harp set upon his knees
     From his lips fell the voice which filled my head
     And burned itself into my heart"

Achrennight longingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The Soul Bard looked into my eyes
     The Soul Bard saw into my soul
     His music brought tears to my eyes
     And left my heart longing for more"

Achrennight quietly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "In his eyes I saw the wisdom of a thousand years
     And the knowledge of things yet to come
     Then his voice rose again with that echo so sweet
     It brought chills down the length of my spine
     As the Soul Bard's voice rang out in the night
     I closed my eyes to hear"

Achrennight flashes a quick grin at Silvyrfrost.

Achrennight wistfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I thought it a dream, so I went on my way
     But the Soul Bard lived on in my heart
     And now and again when I walk through that wood
     I can still hear his song in the dark
     I can still see his eyes as they stared into mine
     And the fire that burned within
     And I know that his music will stay with my soul
     Though I may never see him again"

Achrennight longingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "For the Soul Bard looked into my eyes
     The Soul Bard saw into my soul
     His music brought tears to my eyes
     And left my heart longing for more"

Achrennight sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh his music brought tears to my eyes
     And it left my heart longing for more.... "

Achrennight curtsies.
Achrennight blushes, the tips of her ears turning a delicate scarlet hue.
Achrennight curtsies to Vorclaf.



Achrennight says, "Well, this song I was going to save for this concert, but I sang it a bit early"
Achrennight blushes, the tips of her ears turning a delicate scarlet hue.

Achrennight says, "This song is called 'Honest Rowan' and those who've heard it should recognize it"

Achrennight sweetly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Honest Rowan was a hunter
     Good as any in the North
     But the game were few and scarce
     So to the city she set forth."

Achrennight sweetly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Who would have an honest servant?
     Till the master that she found,
     Till the day that wicked Tymen
     To his service had her bound."

Achrennight firmly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "As I see you are a hunter
     I command you hunt my foes,
     In the streets about the city
     In the alleys no one knows."

Achrennight firmly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Village sharp and moneylender
     And the high priest I will choose.
     Go you forth and do my bidding
     By your oath you can't refuse."

Achrennight sweetly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Honest Rowan went a'hunting
     Heavy hearted in the night.
     She went to the village sharp
     And called him boldly forth to fight."

Achrennight sweetly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Proud he came to take her challenge,
     Eager striking blow for blow.
     Long they fought before the people
     Till her blade skill laid him low."

Achrennight angrily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Wrong you were, you foolish woman,
     Dueling so where all could see!
     Still you slew the village sharp
     And brought no least reproach on me."

Achrennight firmly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Go you then and take the others
     Hunt them down from door to door.
     Go you hunt, my honest servant,
     Hunt them till they all kiss floor."

Achrennight sweetly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Honest Rowan went a'knocking
     At the moneylender's gate,
     Brought to him the somber message
     That his danger would not wait."

Achrennight sweetly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Oh well did he believe her message
     So swift he fled from his back door,
     Quit the town, forgot his debts
     And never came back anymore."

Achrennight angrily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Wrong you did, you bumbling fool,
     To let your prey escape and go!
     Still he ceased to trouble me
     And left his money even so."

Achrennight darkly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Go and take your final target
     This time do not let him flee,
     And, as proof of your compliance,
     Bring the high priest's head to me."

Achrennight hopelessly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "To the high priest Rowan went
     "Oh, Father, my confession take.
     I am sent to slay a priest
     Bound by an oath I cannot break."

Achrennight matter-of-factly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "What now can an honest servant
     Of a wicked master do?
     I must bring your head to Tymen,
     For my target, sir, is you."

Achrennight sternly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Back so soon my honest servant
     With your game bag dragging long.
     Have you brought the high priest's head
     Or have you once more done me wrong?"

Achrennight folds her arms across her chest.

Achrennight meekly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "No, Messir, I did your bidding
     See this bag I bring to you?
     Here I have the high priest's head..."

Achrennight mischievously sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And more, I brought his body too!"

Achrennight winks and flashes a sly grin.

Achrennight happily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Out then sprang the high priest, angry
     Hammer drawn, and seeing red.
     Three times fast and sure he struck
     And shattered wicked Tymen's head."

Achrennight happily sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Go, you're free now, Honest Rowan,
     For your service here is done.
     Wicked master, honest servant
     Take the freedom you have won!"



Achrennight asks, "Did you know that it's rather easy to catch a Ranger?"
Achrennight raises an eyebrow.
Achrennight winks and flashes Useff a sly grin.
Achrennight says to Useff, "Hush you, you know him"

Guttorm asks, "givem a map?"
Achrennight grins at Guttorm.

Achrennight says, "Well, I found that a trap is one thing, but you need either good bait, or to stun them"

Achrennight says, "Seems I found a song that stunned at least one Ranger"

Achrennight says, "It did so well that it addled him enough to bond me, of all people"

Achrennight just touched a shadowy black silk handfasting cord adorned with ebony beads carved to resemble a pair of sleek wolves.

Achrennight asks, "I guess, I should sing the song?"

Achrennight says, "It's not a bawdy song, I just happened to be very lucky"

Achrennight gets a fluffy plush firebird from inside her brocade cloak.

Achrennight says, "Seems what I thought a song fitting for my last marriage also gave praise to his goddess"

Achrennight winks.

Achrennight says, "It's called Life's Flame"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "One dark and stormy night,
     A fledgling fell from flight
     Into a falconer's arms."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Though dead it seemed to be,
     The falconer could not see
     Any wound to cause such harm."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The falconer bound it 'round
     And laid it on the ground
     Then went and built a funeral pyre."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "With the the bandaged bird within,
     Soon the flames began to spin,
     Tangle up then grow higher."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "From there a phoenix bold,
     Rose up of flame and gold,
     Twisting about within the air."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Still bound it hung above
     And sang of pain and love,
     Of magic power both dark and fair."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I'm Life's Flame.
     Respect my name.
     My fire's red, my heart is gold."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Thy dreams can be,
     Believe in me
     If you but let my wings unfold."

Achrennight gazes at her firebird.

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Up spoke the falconer's fear,
     "There may be danger here,
     I cannot let this raptor free.."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "It's words I cannot trust,
     It burns with power's lust
     And so in turn it could burn me."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The falconer then moved fast,
     And iron shackles cast,
     Thus catching up the bird in chains."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Thy fear has boded ill
     And bound me 'gainst my will,
     Now I must die and rise again."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I'm Life's Flame.
     Respect my name.
     My fire's red, my heart is gold."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Thy dreams can be,
     Believe in me
     If you but let my wings unfold."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The phoneix burned to bright,
     It burst upon the night
     It's golden breast did flame and flare."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "One flash of fire and then
     Came stormy night again
     And found the falconer holding air."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The magic never dies,
     In children's hearts it lies.
     Pray let them learn from times before."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "From dragon's flame and ire
     Can come false phoenix fire
     And we will hear the song once more."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I'm Life's Flame.
     Respect my name.
     My fire's red, my heart is gold."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Thy dreams can be,
     Believe in me
     If you but let my wings unfold."

Achrennight gives a fluffy plush firebird a hug!
Achrennight curtsies.

Dreamheart says, "Wow, that was lovely. No wonder the ranger was caught."
Dreamheart beams at Achrennight!



Achrennight says, "Well, I guess the time has come for a rather sad song"

Achrennight says, "Oh, don't worry, I'll only sing this one"

Achrennight gets a dragon-engraved violin from inside her instrument case.
Achrennight gets a dragon-engraved bow from inside her instrument case.

Achrennight says, "It just reminds me of my brother who is wandering far away"

Achrennight says, "He was the one who nursed me through every broken heart I had until he wandered away. For him, I sing this song, Flames and Hearts"

Achrennight draws her bow across the strings, a delicate melody flowing from her violin.

Achrennight smiles sadly, weaving her voice around the melancholy melody.

Achrennight sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Flames and hearts, hearts on fire
     Missing faces burning higher
     A candle burns and lovers gone
     And survives on hearts of stone"

Achrennight eyes begin to close, one tear rolling down her cheek, as the melody begins to fill with the pain of old wounds of a once shattered heart.

Achrennight longingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Flames and hearts, hearts and flames
     Never more will seem the same
     Prices paid for a heavy game
     And a yearning heart and flame"

Achrennight bow and fingers dance lightly across her instrument, belying the sense of loss her music envokes.

Achrennight wistfully sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "From here to there, from you to me
     Make it like reality
     An empty bed a room gone cold
     An outstretched hand and none to hold"

Achrennight smiles to herself, the notes of her song trembling softly. With a deep breath, she steadies her hands, her melody almost too quiet to hear.

Achrennight longingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Flames and hearts, hearts and flames
     Never more will seem the same
     Prices paid for a heavy game
     And a yearning heart and flame"

Achrennight lifts the bow from her violin for a moment, letting the sadness of her voice ring out across the room.

Achrennight sadly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "The coldest hand turns round to spill
     Like the sounds of rain on a window sill
     Broken ties lie scattered round
     Like dead soldiers make no sound"

Achrennight her eyes closed as if looking inward, sways as if lost in her music. The melody, slowly gaining volume and speed, seems to be forged from every wound a heart endured, no matter how small or old.

Achrennight longingly sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Flames and hearts, hearts and flames
     Never more will seem the same
     Prices paid for a heavy game
     And a yearning heart and flame"

Achrennight gazes across the room, as if searching for one who is lost. After a moment of searching, she shakes her head, as if accepting her loss.

Achrennight smiles as her eyes flicker across each face gathered, the song of her violin turning from sorrow and loss to triumph colored with many old memories and only a hint of pain.

Achrennight slowly empties her lungs.

Achrennight quietly asks, "With so many here, how can I truly be sad or alone?"

Useff hugs Achrennight, who wraps her arms around Useff with a warm smile.


 

Niteshiver chants in a bass voice:

"Achren your music is clear as an ancient bell!"

Achrennight just tickled Niteshiver, who laughs and returns the favor.

Achrennight asks Niteshiver, "Was that a request to stop?"
Achrennight chuckles.

Niteshiver says, "no it was a plea to go on"

Achrennight laughs!

Keresyk exclaims, "yes, please!"
Keresyk asks, "another song?"
Silvyrfrost smiles at Keresyk.
Keresyk exclaims, "none of yours have stunk, even the sad ones, Ma'am!"
Keresyk blushes, the tips of his ears turning a deep shade of red.
Keresyk says, "I ... I mean... You've got a wonderful talent, Ma'am. Please sing another."

Achrennight grins at Keresyk.



Achrennight asks, "Well, since I know I've been known for my bawdy songs, shall I sing one of those?"

Achrennight says, "That is, if it won't be too... offensive"

Achrennight says, "Well, this one's an old standby for me. The Bantam Cock"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He was a fine upstanding bantam cock,
     So brisk, and stiff, and spry
     With a springy step and a jaunted plume,
     And a purposeful look in his eye,
     In his little black laughing eye."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And so I took him to the coop and introduced him to
     My seventeen wide eyed hens,
     And he tooked and he tooked as a hero tooks,
     And he bowed them all and then
     He up and took them again."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Well then upon the peace of my ducks and geese
     He did boldly intrude.
     And with glazed eyes and open mouths
     They bore it all with fortitude
     And a little bit of gratitude."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He jumped my giggling guinea fowl,
     He thrust is attentions upon
     My twenty hysterical turkeys
     And a visiting migrant swan,
     And the bantam thundered on."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He groped my fantail pigeon doves
     And my lily white columbine
     And as I was locking up my budgierigar,
     He jumped my parrot from behind-
     He was sitting my shoulder at the time."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "But all of the sudden, with a gasp and a gulp
     He clapped his wings to his head.
     He lay flat on his back with his feet in the air,
     My bantam cock was dead,
     And the vultures circled overhead."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "What a noble beast, what a champion cock,
     What a way to live and to die.
     But as I dug him a grave to protect his bones
     From those hungry buzzards in the sky,
     The bantam opened up a sly little eye."

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "He gave me a wink and a terrible grin,
     They way that rapists do.
     He said, "You see them silly daft buggers up there,
     They'll be down in a minute or two,
     They'll be down in a minute or two."

Achrennight bobs down and back up in a quick curtsy.
Achrennight grins impishly.

Keresyk asks, "Lady Silvyrfrost?"
Silvyrfrost quietly says to Keresyk, "Donnae be repeating that one to yer mother."
Keresyk asks, "May Lady Achrennight join us for music lessons sometime? Mayhap I could learn a few songs from her?"
Silvyrfrost says to Keresyk, "Ask yer mother."
Keresyk says, "Deeper sings worsn' that."
Melissande says to Keresyk, "Aye but I canna imagine yer mother would like to know ye were there listening."
Niteshiver asks, "who is Deeper?"
Useff says, "Rum seller on Mer'kresh. Runs a very dangerous bar"



Achrennight asks, "Well, as this is a special treat, one more bawdy song before the final song?"
Achrennight winks at Keresyk.

Achrennight says, "This one is called Mis-conceptions"

Achrennight says to Keresyk, "Again, another one not to repeat to your mother"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I've got a unicorn's horn
     In the middle of my forehead
     And the antlers of a stag
     On either side"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I've got pointed ears
     That are something like a deer's
     Or something like an elf's
     I can't decide"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I've got long green hair
     To match my flowing emerald mane
     That turns red with the oak trees
     Every fall"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "With my goat like eyes
     It should come as no surprise
     That I've got feathered eyebrows
     And that isn't all"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My mother never talks about that orgy
     And I can't really blame her, much although
     I'd love to read the guest list for that party
     And if there's another one like it, let me know"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Well my vampire's fangs make kissing kind of awkward
     Like the set of gills implanted in my neck
     But my chest and arms, aren't the least of all my charms
     They somehow came out human, what the heck"

Achrennight grins impishly.

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I've got phoenix wings well rooted in my shoulders
     And I hope you like legs, 'cause I got four
     The furry forward pair, would make a lion stare
     Because they end in dragon claws that wreck the floor"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My mother never talks about that orgy
     And I can't really blame her, much although
     I'd love to read the guest list for that party
     And if there's another one like it, let me know"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I suspect my body's mostly like a centaur's
     Though my fur is somewhat tiger like you'll find
     And if you'd fear that my legs in front were weird
     You should only see the pair that walk behind"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "'Cause they start off looking something like a horse's
     But they're covered up with feathers not with hair
     And they end in hooves like an antelope's which proves
     That there's nothing that the trap it will not bear"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My mother never talks about that orgy
     And I can't really blame her, much although
     I'd love to read the guest list for that party
     And if there's another one like it, let me know"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "Now my tail is really something very special
     Though you wouldn't think so seeing it at all
     For it's long and green, like my hair and mane you see
     And like them it turns red with every fall"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "But beneath that hair, which is really quite attractive
     The stinger of a manticore is hid
     So you surely see, when you look at all of me
     That I really wish I knew, what Mommy did!"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "My mother never talks about that orgy
     And I can't really blame her, much although
     I'd love to read the guest list for that party
     And if there's another one like it, let me know, 'cause I wanna go
     If there's another one like it, let me know!"

Lashes lowered modestly, Achrennight gives a flirtatious smile as she sinks into a graceful curtsy.


 

Achrennight says, "Ok, I'm sure you all have much better things to do with your time than listen to me sing all night"
Useff says, "No, we really don't"
Mykk says, "Umm, sure, if you like to think so."
Niteshiver says, "we have no lives"

Silvyrfrost murmurs, "She is going to kill me."
Achrennight asks Silvyrfrost, "Sorry?"
Keresyk says, "Lady Achrennight, if I'm not listenin' to you sing, then I have to get back to doin' catapult calculations."
Silvyrfrost says to Achrennight, "Naething."
Keresyk throws Achennight a beseeching look for one more song.
Achrennight says to Keresyk, "I'll make you a deal then"
Keresyk perks up.
Achrennight says to Keresyk, "Don't call me Lady, just call me Achren, like my friends do, and I'll sing at least one more song"
Keresyk says, "Yes, Achren Ma'am."
Niteshiver says, "The name Achrennight is so brunette and decadent"

Achrennight sighs.

Keresyk says, "My mom's got a sharp right, Achren Ma'am. I'd not like to meet it more often than I have to."
Tienan says, "from tien's youth, what mom not know, mom not box ears for doing."



Achrennight says, "Well then, the song I saved for last... but only if I get some help with the chorus"

Achrennight says, "This song is called Till I Sleep"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I ll walk this way until I sleep
     I ll ride this road until I die
     I d take you with me if you d come
     It s keeping me alive"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

     I d listen without prejudice
     The only thing I ever owned
     Was living deep inside"

     I ll sing it till I sleep"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I d walk through hills and glens for those
     Who mean the world to me and I
     Would rather see you stay than go
     But now we must decide"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "I ll ride the surf on board this ship
     That takes me o er the foaming sea
     Unites me with my family
     And those that I d caress"

A chorus of voices join with Achrennight's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "So till I sleep, I ll carry on
     So till I die, I ll run along
     These lines I drew myself have gone
     You know it s only right"

Achrennight sings in a mezzo-soprano voice:

    "And when my senses have all gone
     And when myself I am alone
     I ll count my blessings one by one
     And then I ll say goodnight"

A chorus of voices join with Achrennight's leading mezzo-soprano as she sings:

    "I ll ride this horse into the wind
     I ll take you with me when I go

     I ll sing it till I sleep"
