PostSubject: Elfquest Holiday Songs   Elfquest Holiday Songs EmptySat Dec 19, 2020 12:45 am

Well, after this week Im a bit run down on snappy post names, but thatll do for now.

This isnt just for end-of-year holidays, any time of year, any holiday, occasion (Birthday song anyone?)

Im in the mood for EQ themed or changed holiday songs. I'd have figured there'd be some modified holiday songs in all the rich history of EQ fandom.

If you know of one, post it here.

If you have one of your own, post it somewhere (here if you like, or in your own thread, then link it here so others can find it if you like.)

If you have a verse or two, post the tune its to, the lines you came up with, and (if its in middle of the song), what lines they replace.

So far we have:

Ive got a christmas-y question... Are there EQ themed christmas songs from back when the old forum was at its peak or something? Perhaps along the lines of (to the tune of Jingle Bells): Jinkle Bells... Skywise Smells... Winnie made an Egg...?

@ Hammer: Don't remember anything but friends and I were dabbling on a Moonshade-version of the "Twelve Days of Christmas" ages ago, like "On the first day of Christmas my true love shot for me..."
Feel free to use that idea... ^^

I am all messed up in my head right now and have to resort to my more analytical brain for 12 days... None of this is in verse, just jotting trivia notes

Theres technically only one palace, but that gets fuzzy when you count shards and mini palaces. But there is only one Scroll of Colors... One eye for One-Eye... One Oddbit Dancing.... Thats in the wrong place somehow... Egg a cracking...

There are two Doors... two bodies to cutter's soul... Two visits to Blue Mountain, two (or more) fathers for Jink, two minds in rayak's head... Two original troll kings... Two moons.... Two Spiritmakers Springing...

There were three exploring Rock Shapers exploring (also could be used in place of three kings)... Three fingers counting

Four fingered pawflowers

Five dreamberries....

And Im outta brain and outta trivia... Need a recharge.

Preservers spewing
Trolls a mining
Zwoots stampeding
Mothers of Memory
Eight gliders flying
Nine in the ciricle of nine (or was it eleven?)

Bad ideas:
Shamans Raving
Madcoils slither-snarling
Mindcoils sleeping

You better not pout
You better not cry
You better not Send
Im telling you why
Win-no-wil is coming to town..

Ok, Ill stop....

just counting digits:
- therre are three toes (for Timmorn or Chief Threetoe or Trolls)
- there are four fingers on an elfin hand (thumb counts!)
- and fife fingers on a human hand

as many dreamberries as jou need (or humps of dreamberry wine)

There's Blood of Ten Chiefs (Cutter) - or simply eleven Chiefs
and Blood of Eight and Three Chiefs (Ember) - twelve Chiefs
there's the Circle of Nine
and eight Chosen Ones

six killed by Madcoil (dark section)
seven in the Palace when it was abducted  (count in Choplicker!)

five founders of Sorrows End

... missing by now: eleven - you can always get 11 preserver toppers ^^

Not exactly a holiday song but it popped up when I was looking for a 10:

Ten Little Wolfriders went on a hunting party ...
1 Rain - was slashed first by Madcoil - 9
1 Longbranch - crashed all bones - 8
1 Brownberry - was never seen again - 7
1 Foxfur - swallowed alive - 6
1 Joyleaf - dragged to the cave for dinner - 5
1 Bearclaw - took revenge and died - 4
1 One-Eye - slammed by Troll - 3
1 Skywise  - went to the stars - 2
1 Cutter - bitten by a spider - 1
1 Treestump went on, became a blacksmith and ... gathered nine apprentices.

... or: married Trinket and got eight mumps - and they were Ten again. ^^

*includes some creative licence*
You can make it rhymes, Hammer - you are better with this than I am!


Just for me to have the Englisch version handy:

Ten little Elves were ... (doing something),
Rain (One) ... (did whatever) ... and then there were nine.
...
One little Elf living all alone,
He (did whatever) and then there were none.
or: He (did whatever) and there were ten again.

Could bie reduced to a row of eight - appropriate number for elfin digits!

Or make it a general version about the EQ Suicide Crew ... and their more or less stupd death:
10 - Kureel
9 - Winnowill
8 - Zey Icetooth
7 - Surge
6 - Kahvi
5 - Krim
4 - Ekolin
3 - Kimo
2 - Cutter
1 - and Pike was left to tell their stories to an audiance of nine ...
Note to myself: Eldolil and Icetooth can be added to said crew - but them I can understand! And Ekolin of course!!!


There can be a Hero death row, too ...
10 - Freefoot
9 - Bearclaw
8 - Eyes High
7 - One-Eye
6 - Vaya
5 - Yif
4 - Windstone
3 - Skot
2 - Zhantee
1 - and Pike was left to tell their stories to an audiance of nine ...

Or occational/unlucky death ...
10 - Adya
9 - Tekshu
8 - Eldolil
7 - Woodloick and Rainsong count for one
6 - Wing
5 - Crescent
4 - Shale
3 - Ruffel
2 - Moonshade
1 - and Pike was left to tell their stories to an audiance of nine ...


Okay, I might try to make it into some proper lines ... laaaaater! XD

Can we get 10 Evil Elves ... or Ten Evil Humans? Or simply 10 EQ baddies? Rayek Devil

I love it when our own Mother of Memory gets creative, Embala! I like where you are going with that. Besides, theres also no reason EQ songs have to all stick to some standard, they are aliens on another planet and might have a holiday or two we dont have! Lol.

Lets see... Im not in a creative mode yet, and anyone reading this who is feeling like it have at it. Im just sketching some more lists...

I dont think theres a troll king cycle, but theres something like:
Firstcomer
Guttlekraw
Greymung
Picknose
Trinket
Just five I can remember. But I still think there could be a 12 days for trolls
Pickaxes swinging, anvils ringing, hammers beating, kings commanding, orecarts dumping, gamblers betting, five pints of brew?

Ten Famous Trolls ...
10 Digger
9 Greymung
8 Smelt
7 Guttlecraw
6 Picknose
5 Drub
4 Trinket
fill cleverly with
3 Oddbit
2 Flam
1 Old Maggoty
and Digger, the Firstcomer returns

I just had it hit me...

(Besides any and all songs not being limited to one set of verses OR languages, since things rhyme differently in different languages, and EQ has a rich group of themes)

But, one that might be easy would be a Wolfrider themed set for 12 days...
All their favorite things to hunt, given to their lovemates, topped with
And a (something) in the Father Tree... Lol

And a New Holt with a Father Tree? (Sorry, they do seem to burn down and move a lot)
