First of all, this challenge will absolutely and unequivocally show my ADVANCED AGE! LOL

Most of you were probably not even born when I was listening to some of my favourite songs below!

The first mix is an angsty one based on Dog with Two Bones and of course the heartbreaking scene between John and Aeryn in the hangar bay as well as the tension between them in the couple of episodes that preceded it.

The second mix is “tongue in cheek” because after the angst I needed a smile!
It is the unwavering love between Braca and Scorpius or of Braca FOR Scorpius – whatever way you choose to interpret their relationship!

I have shown some of the lyrics, which I hope will show how the songs fit the themes – at least they do in my mind! You also have links to the UTube videos for each song!

I hope you enjoy them!


1. Dog with Two Bones – John / Aeryn

Wild World by Cat Stevens
“Now that I have lost everything to you, you say you want to start something new and it’s breaking my heart your are leaving….baby I am grieving!”

Leave right now by Will Young
“I am here just like I said though it is breaking every rule I ever made….my racing heart is just the same, why make it strong to break it once again? And I’d love to say I do, give everything to you, but I could never now be true so I say I think I’d better leave right now before I fall any deeper, I think I’d better leave right now, I am feeling weaker and weaker…..”

Lay Lady Lay by Bob Dylan
“Lay Lady Lay, lay across my big brass bed…lay lady lay across my big brass bed… Whatever colors you have in your mind I'll show them to you and you'll see them shine

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile until the break of day, let me see you make him smile
his clothes are dirty but his hands are clean and you're the best thing that he's ever seen

Stay, lady, stay, stay with your man awhile why wait any longer for the world to begin
you can have your cake and eat it too why wait any longer for the one you love
when he's standing in front of you”

Riders on the Storm by The Doors
“Riders on the storm, Riders on the storm, into this house we're born, into this world we're thrown
like a dog without a bone an actor out alone riders on the storm…
Girl ya gotta love your man Girl ya gotta love your man Take him by the hand Make him understand
The world on you depends Our life will never end Gotta love your man, yeah”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmSdTa9kaiQ&ob=av3e
 
With or Without you by U2
“See the stone set in your eyes , See the thorn twist in your side, I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate, On a bed of nails she makes me wait, And I wait without you
With or without you With or without you
Through the storm we reach the shore, You give it all but I want more, And I'm waiting for you
With or without you, With or without you, I can't live, With or without you
My hands are tied, My body bruised, she's got me withNothing to win andNothing left to lose
With or without you, With or without you I can't live With or without you With or without you”


2. Braca / Scorpius

You are My Best Friend by Queen

“Ooh you make me live, whatever this world can give to me it's you you're all I see, ooo you make me live now honey, ooo you make me live

Ooh you're the best friend that I ever had I've been with you such a long time, you're my sunshine and I want you to know that my feelings are true I really love you oh you're my best friend”

Puppy Love by Donny Osmond

“I cry each night my tears for you, my tears are all in vain I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
you'll be back in my arms once again. Someone, help me, help me, help me please is the answer up above how can I, how can I tell them this is not a puppy love…”

Grace Kelly by Mika

“Do I attract you? Do I repulse you with my queasy smile? Am I too dirty? Am I too flirty?
Do I like what you like?

I could be wholesome I could be loathsome I guess I'm a little bit shy Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me without making me try?”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flOvM4Z355A&feature=related

Light my Fire by the Doors

“The time to hesitate is through, no time to wallow in the mire, try now we can only lose and our love become a funeral pyre come on baby, light my fire, come on baby, light my fire, try to set the night on fire, yeah…”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EztmEF24fdo  

Is this Love by Bob Marley

“I wanna love you and treat you right; I wanna love you every day and every night: We'll be together with a roof right over our heads; We'll share the shelter of my single bed; We'll share the same room, yeah! - for Jah provide the bread. Is this love - is this love - is this love - Is this love that I'm feelin'? Is this love - is this love - is this love - Is this love that I'm feelin'? I wanna know - wanna know - wanna know now! I got to know - got to know - got to know now!”

Disclaimer: I am sooo bad at this challenge it's not even funny, I was confused when I read it and I am still confused posting it! I will however face ridicule for Team Prowler and POINTS!!!!  I AM A TRALK FOR POINTS!!!!!!!






Space creatures, critters and monsters

1. BUDONGS


These are massive space monsters, quite rare alive, they like to disguise themselves as harmless moons


They however can be extremely dangerous as they consider energy fields electromagnetic candy and therefore tend to swallow you and your spaceship whole at which juncture you would not be blamed if you were to exclaim:

“ YO JONAH! WE HAVE BEEN SWALLOWED! THAT IS DOWN AND I, FOR ONE, DO NOT WANT TO BE BUDONG CHOW!”

Once inside one, you are basically frelled! Their stomachs are infernal furnaces and your options are extremely limited. Freeing yourself from one will take a superhuman effort, imagination and considerable luck. Not often this can be said, but vomit is the solution. Coming out of their backsides is not!

Dead budongs seem to be more common in the Uncharted Territories – their bodies are mined for precious stones and used as small moon sized bases. The smell of dead budong is said to be quite powerfully revolting, however the moral of the story is – a dead budong is far preferable to a live one!

2. Strannats
These lobster like creatures are native of a planet called Kanvia. They are extremely attuned to brain wave patterns and sensitive to cognitive dissonance and therefore used as living lie detectors – in a few words if you lie, they know it! So if you find yourself on Kanvia and a strannat is placed on your head, our heartfelt advice is to tell the truth or you can kiss your eema goodbye – why? – because strannats’ automatic response to lying is to bury one of their deadly stingers through your brain.



In spite of the lethal punishments meted out to liars or maybe because of them, strannats have been known to inspire poetry of the highest standard – famous across the Uncharted Territories are the immortal rhymes:

“Let's cut the crap. Let's cut to the chase - stick this critter on my face… Cross my heart, smack me dead, stick a lobster on my head.”

A truly honest person’s anthem!

If you ask me, I think a strannat should be mandatorily issued to every politician in the universe coming into office…but that’s just my opinion! Give me a hell yeah! if you agree.

3. Wolaxan Arachnids
These creatures are most often found in Tormented Space. They are highly intelligent and disguise their true appearance but taking innocuous and somehow appealing semblances to fit in and work their way among unsuspecting crews, however in their natural state they look pretty much like giant spiders. Their aim is to feed on the energy of their victims, but not just any energy, they focus on the strongest character trait, first of all accentuating it though physical contact and then by stealing it away leaving their victims acting in exactly the opposite way they normally would. So for example the brave are turned into wimps, jolly people into wet blankets and so on and so forth.

These spider like creatures encapsulate the stolen energy in bright green orbs which then get stored away for later feeding. The victims will eventually die a horrible death covered in weeping sores and lesions.


Only known way to kill them is to stick your pulse rifle straight into their mouths and fire. At which point in the words of a famous human astronaut:

“Along came a spider - exploded beside her...”

These creatures may be horrific adversaries when alive, but when dead they actually make for a great spider stew!

4. Vorcs
These creatures are a lot more complicated than on first appearance. A vorc in its relaxed, non hunting state will look like a cute shrivelled little old, bald alien man. Its character is mainly playful : it will naughtily run away from you, climb into your bed, go to the toilet on your clean floors and vigorously hump your leg if let! However vorcs are also extremely useful hunters, their instinct is in fact to locate and destroy a particular and extremely dangerous type of virus, which will take over your body, wrap it in a cocoon, then replace you with a replica while slowly sucking and feeding your true essence (the one wrapped in the cocoon) – all very complicated but to simplify, vorcs will come to your help, if you let them, by killing this virus. However in their hunting mode, vorcs transform into larger clawed fat ninja like creatures of non too pleasant appearance, which is the reason you could get fooled into believing they are actually the enemy.

Be warned, when aware of the true kind nature of vorcs, you can become very attached and consider them pets. Like all pet owners, me included, will attest, you will find yourself trying to communicate with the vorc and asking it questions and expecting explanations, which are unfortunately beyond its limited vocal capabilities – this will lead to surreal conversations such as:

You to the Vorc: Are you the parasite?
Your scornful partner to you: The answer to that is “NO”. Who is gonna say yes to that? That is – NO!

As with all dearly beloved pets, the death of a Vorc can be extremely emotional and painful but, not to sound too callous, it helps and awful lot if you have a John Crichton to console you!


PROMPT 1 - I COULD FEEL MYSELF UNDER YOUR FATE
I chose to interpret this (mainly because being dense I did not really understand the prompt LOL) by showing some pivotal moments that for me linked the characters’ fates and bonded them forever



PROMPT 2 – Favourite Moment There are soooo many, hard to choose… these are random

 There is a new citizen in Springfield – she is exotic, alien and scantily dressed – can any body blame Homer for drooling?  Marge is NOT amused so she marches up to the writers and gives them a piece of her mind!  They like the new character but Marge is a long standing star of the show, the producers are threatening wage cuts, their hands are tied....and the eraser comes out!  Goodbye sexy Aeryn...





Tinky Winky, Dipsey, Laa-Laa and Po are looking on two new members of their happy world - these two lovely people arrived
out of nowhere after a colourful and whirling tunnel opened up in the blu, sunny sky!  The Teletubbies are delighted, they now have  two new playmates to chase on the flowery meadows, to hug and love!  For Staleek and Akhna the nightmare has only BEGUN!

Dexter has not killed for a while and his dark demons are getting restless.  Through his sister he
hears of a cowardly killer, a man who betrayed his comerades to save himself who enjoys torturing
helpless creatures and who is prepared to lay in wait for a long time before taking revenge on the
people trying to help him. Dexter is on the hunt....poor Durka never had a chance!

Doctor Temperance Brennan has never been this busy, Booth keeps requesting her help on
unsolved and puzzling deaths and her case load is becoming burdensome.  She has no alternative
but to interview suitable candidates for the position of head squint.  On paper M'Lee is the perfect
candidate - she is discreet, enthusiastic, helpful and capable -perfect in every way.  There is only one
problem - evidence keeps mysteriously disappearing from the Jeffersonian forensic lab!
