I thought of a theme song for Aleksey. Aside from his current one, Blind Guardian - The Battle of Sudden Flame.

Oh lord, here I stand
For all Noldor Kisah
From now on my life is my gift to you
Just lead my fate to the victory of elves


It was there in front of me the whole time, I just never applied it in that sense. But it actually does fit him well. Dream Theater - Pull Me Under.

Lost in the sky
Clouds roll by, and I roll with them
Arrows fly
Seas increase and then fall again


Symbolizing Aleksey's ties with nature and the lives of his kin. The elves have seen the world change, the wars of men come and go, and have carried on through it all.

This world is spinning around me
This world is spinning without me
Every day sends future to past
Every breath leaves me one less to my last


Feeling caught up in all going on around him. He came from a simple background, to learn of a dark family past. He still struggles to understand both himself and the complicated world around him. He also recognizes his own mortality, having experienced a brush with death still early in his life. He would give his life for Kisah, as he said before, "My life is not mine to value. I have given myself to Kisah, and it is theirs in death."

Watch the sparrow falling
Gives new meaning to it all
If not today nor yet tomorrow
Then some other day

I'll take seven lives for one
And then my only father's son
As sure as I did ever love him
I am not afraid


He actually took eight lives in this past war, to repay the blood Tirome spilt when they attacked his wife Elendra. Yes, he is his father's only son, and it was he who told Aleksey of the oath necessary to repay the blood of his bonded spilt. "I am not afraid." Exactly what was on Aleksey's mind as he faced those of Tirome. He cared not for himself, only fulfilling his oath.

This world is spinning around me
The whole world keeps spinning around me
All life is future to past
Every breath leaves me one less to my last

Pull me under
Pull me under
Pull me under, I'm not afraid
All that I feel is honor and spite
All I can do is set it right


He is prepared for what must be done, the trials he must face for the sake of his kin. All he feels is honor in regards to the elves, his brethren whom he fights for, and spite for his enemies who would harm them. He can do nothing but fight for their sake, and turn back the evil which taints the realms.

Dust fills my eyes
Clouds roll by, and I roll with them
Centuries cry
Orders fly, and I fall again


All that he endures for their sake.

This world is spinning inside me
The whole world is spinning inside of me
Every day sends future to past
Every step brings me closer to my last

Pull me under
Pull me under
Pull me under, I'm not afraid
Living my life too much in the sun
Only until your will is done


"Your" meaning the Queen, Lyanah. He obeys her will only, and will not stop until it is done.

Pull me under
Pull me under
Pull me under, I'm not afraid
All that I feel is honor and spite
All I can do is set it right

Pull me under
Pull me under
Pull me under, I'm not afraid
Living my life too much in the sun
Only until your will is done

Oh, that this too
Too, solid flesh
Would melt


A line from Hamlet. I haven't actually read the play, so I can't offer any comparison between his story and Aleksey's, sorry. *grin*

I think I remember that, or hearing of that. We should make it FL's oath.

FL doesn't deserve it..

I hate what it's become.

I made it what it was after Rhodre disappeared, and it was beautiful. Now it's stupid and has 50 billion members who are all stupid..
