So I was trying to think of a way to take the shock and awe, and, well, pour lemon juice on the wound. user posted image

Miho got blown away by the Killballs
Walking home from Kimiko's rally.
You can say that Sony's not that well armed,
But as for me and Ping-chan, we believe.

She'd been watchin' stuff from backstage,
And we'd begged her not to go.
But she felt out of character,
So she went off on her own into the snow.

When they found her the next mornin',
At the scene of the attack.
All her ribbons had come undone,
But at least no zombies used her for a snack.

Now we're all so proud of Ping-chan,
She's been copin' best she can.
See her in there readin' manga,
Drinkin' juice and playin' games with Yuki-chan.

It's not Tokyo without Miho.
All the ravers dressed in black.
Though I guess that's not so different,
But the DJ's throwing down some mournful tracks.

Now the students are back in school
But with one more empty seat.
Though without her they're in trouble,
She's the only one in class who could speak l33t.

I've warned all my friends and neighbors.
Better watch out for yourselves.
They should never give munitions
To a man sent by the guys who purchased hell.

As has been said in other filk threads, it's best to choose a song not too close to what you're writing about. For example, what song can we see Ed almost certainly not singing? How about "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (which I'm also shocked to see has never been filked before)? The tone is actually dangerously close to what most people would think of for this scene, which is why I thought of it originally, but with Ed singing it, even the lines that stay the same take on a sinister tone.

Supporting Fire
Sung by Ed, in his prettiest bishie voice

When you play a lonely game
When bows fall from your hair
I'll be down that lane
Just out of sight
When zombies roam
And foes just can't be drowned
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down

With your ribbons out
When you start to change
When evening starts to snow
I will comfort you
Like Sony's crow
When dishes break
And grrlies feel so sad
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will lay me down

Shattered shadow girl
Shattered, lie
Your time has come to fry
All your bows are blown away
See how they fly
When you need a friend
I'll shadow right behind
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will ease your mind
Like a gun with supporting fire
I will ease your mi~ind

Apologies to Simon and Garfunkel
First filk, hope that you like it.

Note that I do not agree with Miho having died; however, it seemed to write itself that way.

Miho (from Daniel by Elton John)

Miho would travel tonight on a train
But there were the KillBall sights, aiming downrange
And zombies, they saw Miho walking on by
Now they can't see Miho, she's in the clouds in the sky

Now she's a spirit, but that's not the end
Miho's ghost is the gayest she's ever been
And now she knows, her purpose on Earth
Was to guide her friends, who now miss her so much

Meimi, my brethren, you are wiser than me
And you sure felt the pain when the stars bid me come
Though I have died, lived in vain not I
Yuki's the new star, to guard Tokyo's sky

Miho would travel tonight on a train
But there were the KillBall sights, aiming downrange
And zombies, they saw Miho walking on by
Now they can't see Miho, she's in the clouds in the sky
Now they can't see Miho, she's in the clouds in the sky
