Head Nurse Meagen

Like the "songverse" I wrote for Kitchan's character Mahou, this is a set of verses interleaved with lines from a song by Heart - in this case, "Straight On" (I'm such a Wilson sisters fanboy).

Wherever three dots (...) end a line, there belongs this Chorus:

I'm comin' straight on for you,
You made my mind,
Now I'm stronger, now I'm comin' through,
Straight on, straight on for you,
Straight on for you!


Quite some time, I been sittin' it out,
Didn't take no chances, I was a prisoner of doubt,


I remember when this started,
Swords in the air,
Young warriors crying vengeance,
Possessed with feral innocence,
Blood in their hair.

A shabby canvas tent or two,
All that I owned,
Some knowledge and some healing tools,
Some helpers and some dreams of you -
Now things have grown.

I knocked down the wailin' wall, it ain't no sin,
I got the feel of fortune, deal me in...


Life was lighter in that season,
When we two played,
And I pretended outrage at your teasin',
While both of us enjoyed those very pleasin'
Laws of animé.

But things could not remain the same;
What happened, dear?
You cast the dice at fortune's little game,
An unexpected kiss that fanned the flames,
Of love and fear.

Now, I know I got to play my hand,
What the winner don't know, the gambler understands,


Ever since the day we matched our hearts
The storms have raged,
Uncertainty between us leaves its mark,
While others, fearing, strive to make us part;
Can we be saved?


Yet though these storms infect me with their chill,
I'm not resigned;
I swear that I will find the craft or skill
To keep safe those I treasure, and I will
Protect what's mine.

My heart keeps playin' it through with you, my friend,
I'll take my chances on you again and again, again...


And you, my love, I hope will understand,
Who breathes my life,
It's you who've given me the strength to stand,
To drop the dice that I hold in my hand,
And throw my life.

I'm comin' straight on for you,
You made my mind,
Now I'm stronger, now I'm comin' through,
Straight on, straight on for you,
Straight on for you!


Well, as I told Mahou, this is just my handle on your character - pay it no mind.

To everyone else, it has been, as usual, a great pleasure to follow these braided stories - keep up the good work!
