OOC: Parody of Thriller, by Michael Jackson

Thanks to Ari’s post of ‘I’m deadly and I know it’ I have gotten the inspiration to make a parody of Thriller called ‘Knights’ hope you enjoy!

 

It’s close to midnight and something armored’s lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You’re paralyzed

‘Cause this is the Knights, Knights Lithmorran
And no one’s gonna save you from the Knight about strike
You know it’s the Knight, Knights Lithmorran
You’re fighting for your life with a killer, Knight tonight.

You hear the door slam and realize there’s nowhere left to run
You feel the cold blade and wonder if you’ll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination, girl!
But all the while you hear the boots creeping up behind
You’re out of time

‘Cause this is the Knights, Knights Lithmorran
There ain’t no second chance against the thing with the giant blade, girl
Knights, Knights Lithmorran
You’re fighting for your life with a killer, Knight, tonight

Night creatures calling, the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There’s no escaping the blade of the sword this time
(It’s unsheathing)
This is the end of your life

They’re out to get you, there’s demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you unsheath that sword and fight for your life
Now is the time for you and I to draw our swords together, yeah
All through the night I’ll help save you from the terror of the magic.
I’ll make you see

That this is the Knights, Knights Lithmorran
‘Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Knights, Knights Lithmorran
So hold that dagger tight and share a
Killer, diller, chiller, Knight here tonight

‘Cause this is Knights, Knights Lithmorran
Girl, I can thrill you more than any ghost would ever dare try
Knight, Knight Lithmorran
So hold that dagger tight and share a killer, Knight, ow!

(I’m gonna thrill ya tonight)
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Southsiders crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y’alls neighborhood

I’m gonna kill ya tonight, ooh baby
I’m gonna krill ya tonight, oh darlin’
Knights Lithmorran, baby, ooh!

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of mage fire
And grizzly mages from every corner
Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The awesomeness of the Knights

Quintilis – 9 – 355

It is so strange these days, see how things go by so fast. First you meet a Page that reminds you so much of yourself in so many ways it’s almost like he’s a copy of you. Next thing you know you are venturing Southside and finding a building full of glowing orbs. I just hope this is enough to get Florense or some of the other people to appreciate what I do for Lithmore, but there are no guarantees.

Aprilis 15 – 355

I’ve been walking a lot these days. I decided to leave my horse and dog behind at Lithmore. Hopefully no one steals them. I’m starting to get close to Farin, perhaps I could visit Adela while I’m there. Seems only nice and it might take a little stress of the situation to talk to old friends again. Another thing I’ll have to work on is my sword. With the new sword it’s going to feel a little weird for a while. Perhaps I’ll just kill some rats. I’m not going to pick fights, that is for sure. I just can’t wait to get back to Lithmore. Hopefully nothing is burning when I do.

Aprilis – 12 355

I’ve just left town by orders of the Earl Marshall. Apparently I’m no longer wanted but she says I can come back in a couple of months which I hate really. I wish I could stay in Lithmore. I’m laying low for now until I can finally come back to Lithmore but something tells me I won’t be allowed back at all for a long time. What I hope the most is that on my way back I’ll run into the Hill Beast when I get back. That way I’ll be allowed in with open arms. But what are the chances of that happening? When I do get back I know be more careful of what I do, that is for sure. I’m going to stay a Knight. Hopefully Florense will get a grip as well. I had to buy a new sword just so I could have one. Whatever it is, if she gets too much power she is going to have me destroyed. If it comes to that I’ll be ready to duel.

The Story – 1

 

Mood music:

Some years later..

 

I stepped out of the large hut which had grown bigger over the years and the sun had grown colder and colder and colder until it was just right again. Clearly since the mage was gone out village was saved once more. Everything was back to it’s good peace which was just the way we liked it around here. The watering had already been done and I had the day off so I decided to go see some of my friends around the place like Johna and Bruckle some of my good friends who worked at the mill. They are brothers and the same age at that. Nearly twins luckily and not twins. If they were I don’t think they would have been around to long but their births were a couple days apart. I went to the mill house where the mill turned slowly and peacefully not giving off much of a breeze as it did when the people worked very hard. On days like those I came to help them out a bit. I saw Johna walking out with Bruckle talking about various things until one of them watched where they were walking.

“Hey, Atholos.” Bruckle grins, “You done with all of your chores?”

“No.” I said sarcastically, “What’s going on now?”

“We just finished for today. We did good so we have the rest of the day off.”

“That great.” I grinned back.

“Yeah, we were going to go to the pub. Want to come?”

“No.” I shook my head, “I’m going to stay home for now. I have some other things to do.”

The two blinked, “Oh. Alright then.” they waved heading off.

The mage turned his head almost as quickly as I did to see the Knights. He growled as he saw them and let go of my hoe throwing it on the ground as he approached the Knights dismounting from their horses. A couple Knights looked at a piece of paper then to the mage and nodded starting to approach him as well drawing their long swords which glimmered in the sun.

“You are under arrest.” said the oldest Knights to the mage,

“Make me.” he growled and then after muttering a few things threw a fireball at him. The Knight dodged quickly and slashed for the mage’s cutting across his knees. The mage gave a cry of pain and muttered some other things and tried to stumble away but the Knights easily caught him and knocked him out with the hilt of his sword.

“Well that was easy.” one of the Knights muttered dragging the mage to a horse. I jogged up to the oldest Knight and he looked down at me and gave a faint smile before turning away to his horse. After that I ran into my hut and said a prayer to Dav thanking him for everything he did for me then and I swore that I’d do as those Knights did from that day forth.

I grabbed for the hoe as I stepped to go do my chores. I have to till the soil first, then plant the seeds, then water the soil. We own quite a bit of land for the farmers we are really… Another one of the things Pop says we need to be thankful for even in this drought. As I tilled the soil but then as I lifted my hoe to bring down to the ground it was stopped mid-swing and there stood, with an evil sneer the mage that’s been the cause of it all.

“What are you doing, boy?” he asked,

“Work.” I replied with slight disrespect in my tone, the mage tsked,

“Don’t take that tone with me boy. You would do best not to do it or you will be doing much much more then tilling -my- soil.” he says smoothly.

“I know what I’m doing!” I yelled. The mages brows churned into a glare and he snatched the hoe from me.

“You will learn about proper respect, bo-!” his voice was cut off by the neighing of several horses with riders bearing the seal of the Knights Lithmorran.

Hey everyone, Atholos here and I thought that I would add something new to my blog such as the history of Atholos when he was a boy all the way to the point where he left his village. I think this idea would have to do a bit with the blog Transcendental Diaries. by Talya. If you haven’t read the blog yet you do not know what you’re missing. So without further adieu…

The sun was very bright when I stepped out of the small hut into the sunlight. Brighter then usual though, it seemed like it was baking every single crop that there was in the field. Too hot for crops to grow really, it has been like this for a couple of days now. A mage just realized his power and has been using it to get what ever he wants. If we don’t do as he says he claims he’ll burn down the whole place. For now he is just making our lives horrible and forcing us to feed him like a king. He doesn’t allow any mail to go out or people to leave the place at all. I live in the slum part of Endridge, my father says that we should be thankful for what we have and that we are lucky but I don’t believe him for a single second. When I get older I am going to be better then this and have a better life where no one will question me and my authority.

Views of the Knights and their duties

Recently I have spoken with the Earl Marshall about some complaints that came in for me. I learned some ugly truths as well such as us Knights aren’t expected to think for ourselves. It would explain why no one is giving me permission to raid the King’s Forest at all to cleanse -taint-, it goes against nearly everything that I have learned and thought. I intend to change it sometime though.
