Holy Cow, My MacBook is Psychic

That, or I can just read anything into anything, because I have a liberal arts degree.

logistika_nyx opened up a Meme inviting us to name a pairing, stick iTunes on shuffle, and give her the title and length of the first song that came up as a writing prompt; song length = wordcount (3:06 = 306, e.g.)

I was a goof and asked for Auron/Lulu.

The song? Loreena McKennett's arrangement of Prospero's Speech:

And now my charms are all o'erthrown
And what strength I have's mine own
Which is most faint; now 'tis true
I must be here confined by you

But release me from my bands
With the help of your good hands
Gentle breath of yours my sails
Must fill, or else my project fails,
Which was to please.
Which was to please.
Now I want spirits to enforce, art to enchant
And my ending is despair,
Unless I be relieved by prayer

Which pierces so that it assaults
Mercy itself and frees all faults
As you from crimes would pardon'd be
Let your indulgence set me free.

Is it just me, or does that make a fine farewell speech for a certain Unsent? Except "which was to please" is a little wimpy.

Goof is good! :D

I don't really write a lot of romance-romance...will try my best. Any opportunity to stretch the boundaries.

No need to be romance, honestly... we tend to assume it, but "relationship" is a broad term. :)

I love that song!
