Mix - RG Veda - The Schism

Fandom: RG Veda
Title: The Schism
Warnings: Spoilers through volume 9.

Ashura is fated to bring death and destruction to the world. Pretty much everyone is out to kill him, to stop him from bringing down their civilizations. Oh, and he's a lonely little kid who just wants to be loved. But that's not easy when destiny is bringing the world crashing down around him.

Ashura'n'Yasha fluffiness; an overabundance of destiny; and lots and lots of angst. Made before I read the last volume of the manga, so the ending isn't a spoiler, just an admittedly hopeful prediction.



BOY MEETS GIRL | WAITING ON A STAR TO FALL
As fate demands, Yasha goes to find Ashura, in spite of the tragedy he knows will follow.

I want to reach out and pull you to me
Who says I should let a wild one go free

Trying to catch your heart
Is like trying to catch a star
But I can't love you this much baby
And love you from this far

Waiting for a star to fall
And carry your heart into my arms
That's where you belong



THE USED | BLUE AND YELLOW
A glimpse of adult!Ashura, before the child ends up in Yasha's arms.

And you never would have thought in the end
How amazing it feels just to live again
It's a feeling that you cannot miss
It burns a hole through everyone that feels it

Well you're never gonna find it
If you're looking for it
Won't come your way...

Should've done something but I've done it enough
By the way your hands were shaking
Rather waste some time with you



RODNEY ATKINS | IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH HELL
The entire Yasha tribe is killed, and there are more deaths to come. Reassuring Ashura, Yasha presses on.

Things go from bad to worse:
You think they can't get worse than that and then they do...

Well, that's when you learn the truth:
If you're going through hell, keep on going
Don't slow down; if you're scared, don't show it
You might get out 'fore the devil even knows you're there



SAOSIN | YOU'RE NOT ALONE
The members of our growing band of heroes spend a lot of time reassuring each other.

You're not alone
There is more to this I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell



BILLY JOEL | WE DIDN'T START THE FIRE
A song for all the characters who are trying to fight the wheel of destiny.

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it



BUCKCHERRY | SORRY
Ashura, overwhelmed by guilt as he thinks he's responsible for bringing everyone trouble.

This time I think I'm to blame
It's harder to get through the days
We get older and blame turns to shame
'Cause everything inside it never comes out right
And when I see you cry it makes me wanna die.

I'm sorry I'm bad, I'm sorry you're blue
I'm sorry about all the things I said to you



HUMAN LEAGUE | BEING BOILED
Ashura's mom is a nasty piece of work.

Just because the kid's an orphan
Is no excuse for thoughtless slaying
People don't forget this torture
Just because you call her mother
Doesn't mean that she's your better

Once more with the voice of Buddha
He'll say carry on your slaughter
Who cares for the little children
You may slice with no conviction
Blind revenge on a blameless victim



JIMMY WAYNE | I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH
Ashura is crushed by the knowledge that his mother wanted to kill him, but still desperate to connect with her. (Switch up the pronouns a bit.)

He can't remember
The times that he thought
Does my daddy love me?
Probably not...
I love you this much
And I'm waiting on you
To make up your mind
Do you love me too?
How ever long it takes
I'm never giving up
No matter what
I love you this much



INDIGO GIRLS | KID FEARS
Ashura has far too much pressure on him for a child.

Are you on fire
From the years
What would you give
For your kid fears



MAXIMO PARK | GOING MISSING
Sweet little Ashura disappears. Evil!adult!Ashura takes over.

Well how it started I will never know
But now I've reached my limit

This can't go on so I should just regret it, regret it, regret it
And even though I left you I'll forget it, forget it, forget it

I'm going missing for a while
I've got nothing left to lose



NIGHTWISH | END OF ALL HOPE
More on child!Ashura's disappearance.

It is the end of all hope
To lose the child, the faith
To end all the innocence
To be someone like me

Wounded is the deer that leaps highest
And my wound it cuts so deep



SMASHING PUMPKINS | DISARM
The "true" Ashura, taunting Yasha.

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What's a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you



FLEETWOOD MAC | THE CHAIN
Can Yasha continue to give Ashura that unconditional love that kept him going?

And if you don't love me now
You will never love me again
I can still hear you saying
You would never break the chain



EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER | FROM THE BEGINNING
Evil!Ashura can't help it. It's destiny, after all.

Maybe I might have changed
And not been so cruel
Not been such a fool
Whatever was done is done
I just can't recall
It doesn't matter at all

You see, it's all clear
You were meant to be here
From the beginning



RUSH | FREEWILL
...but you know what? Destiny be damned.

There are those who think that life
Has nothing left to chance
With a host of holy horrors
To direct our aimless dance

A planet of playthings
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
The stars aren't aligned...

I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose free will
