Cursed musical plotbunnies.

Ever have one of those moments where you're trying to nudge inspiration for one fic idea, and another one creeps up and attacks you like a rabid ninja?

In that vein, here while I should be being sociable (it's my "vacation" after all) I've hit upon the notion that one particular song would make a lovely bit of inspiration for a slightly-askew bit of ficcage involving the Ring, various Bakura, and just how the whole mess got started.

It could work so nicely as words from yon Ring-spirit's silver tongue ...


Nothing's Free

you, me
understand
shake my hand
last chance, little man
ain't it grand

it's a bargain
it's a steal
thirty pieces of silver
and a deal's a deal

sign upon the dotted line
i'll be yours and you'll be mine
nothing's free
eventually

nothing's free
from the rules and laws of morality
free to take your fill
free from your own free will
nothing's free

my boy
it's getting late
i'll raise the stakes

so close
control your fate
why hesitate
seal the deal, close the sale
take my hammer, drive the nail

sign upon the bloody line
a drop of yours a drop of mine
nothing's free
eternally

nothing's free
from your conscience or
free from the consequence
free to sin to death
free til your final breath
nothing's free

free from the claws and flaws of your family
free from obedient life
you're cut like a double-edged knife
nothing's free
nothing's free
oh, you pay me

free to ignore the bore of authority
free to spit in the face
be the winningest rat in the race
til Judgement Day
then nothing's free

bow to me if you wanna be free
free from life
come and die with me
and when we're dead it's for
eternity

come on little one
and dance in the fire
the heat's getting close
and the flame's getting higher
when the music's over
there's a hush in the choir
nothing's free

when the trumpets sound
and his light is all around
and the saints all raise from their graves
in the ground
we'll be going way downtown
way downtown

where it's dark
and it's cold
and you're alone

but you're free

isn't that what you wanted ...?


(Alice Cooper is such a wonderful source of inspiration for warped Bakura ideas anyway ... ;D )
