A Musical: A Tribute to Floe

[Light spoilers up to episode 25, maybe 26. Below is written in a play script form.]

A Stage Production...

[Setting: The deck of Arcus Prima, under the canopy. The flying fortress lies in disrepair, abandoned.]

[The view changes to the aging music machine, winding down and playing a melody]

[Back on deck, Limone and Lodoremon sit side by side, on a park bench. Quietly the two survey what little natural beauty entangled with the signs of nature claiming the temple garden as her own.]

Limone: So is this it?

Lodoremon: It seems that is it! How is life with Dominura?

Limone: Oh, it’s… interesting. But enough about me! How are you?

Lodoremon: Oh, haha, you know how it is. I barely get by these days. So swamped with work, especially given what’s going on with Argetum and Plumbum. It’s rather nice, a change of pace, to sit here and chat and watch them go at it.

Limone: I think it’s embarrassing.

Floe [off the screen]: No it’s not!

[The view suddenly cuts to Paraietta, on a stage, spotlight and curtain and all. Paraietta struck a pose and sings:]

Paraietta: You are everything that is bright and clean / The antonym of me / You are divinity.

[Cut to flashback of prayer to the Plumbum priestesses; the rape; then the prayer scene between Paraietta and Neviril]

[Cut suddenly back to the same stage, spotlight on Lodoremon, likewise, singing]

Lodoremon: But a certain sign of grace is this / From the broken earth flowers come up / Pushing through the dirt!

[Cut to flashback of Mamiina, then cutting her hair, then lying in the flowery field]

[Cut to Yun on stage, spotlight, alone, doing the same]

Yun: You are everything that is bright and clean / And You’re covering me with Your majesty

[Cut to flashback of Onashia, then Yun making a nest, then Yun hugging Onashia]

[Cut to Morinas, on stage, spotlight, the same]

Morinas: And the truest sign of grace was this / From wounded hands redemption fell down / Liberating man!

[Cut to flashback; Waporif waving; Morinas’s boob moment in ep15; Wapourif’s final scene in ep26]

[Cut to stage; spotlights on Alti and Kaimu, hand in hand, singing]

Alti & Kaimu: But the harder I try the more clearly can I feel / The depth of our fall and the weight of it all

[Cut to flashback: rape; shower; A&K’s childhood scene]

[Cut to stage; spotlight on Neviril, singing]

Neviril: And so this might could be the most impossible thing / Your grandness in me making me clean!

[Cut to flashback: The exploded cockpit; the scene where Neviril consoles Aeru in ep21; the jail scene with Neviril]

[Cut to stage; hands joined, left to right, Paraietta, Kaimu, Alti, Morinas, Lodoremon, Yun, and Neviril. In chorus:]

Group: Glory, hallelujah / Glory, glory, hallelujah

[Suddenly, loud cracks breaks through the ceiling. The view pans up and revealing a mostly naked Aeru suspended on wire-fu string-works, descending onto the stage. She sings while floating down:]

Aeru: So here I am, all of me / Finally everything / I am wholly yours.


Floe: CUT CUT CUT!

[The view switches over half way through Floe’s scream of “CUT” to a older, masculine Floe. He yields a conic tube and slams it on the “director’s chair” a couple times.]

[Aeru’s descent halts suddenly]

Aeru: Ouch! Hey, what’s wrong this time, now?

[Aeru ascends again; cut to Floe, contemplative]

Floe: It’s… just the timing. [Floe turns to his right, view pans over to Anubituf, looking cool as per ep26, plus shades] What do you think?

Anubituf: Need more kissing.

[A dishpan lands on his head, and bounces harmlessly off]

Floe: [bounces her fist off her palm] I know! Synchronized swimming! I even know a great place to do it!

[Cut to the group on stage]

Group: No.

Aeru [off screen]: Nooo!

[You see something white falls quickly across the vision, with a clash as Aeru lands in the orchestra pit]

Guragief [off screen]: Sorry! Wrong lever!

[Cuts to Floe; dishpan lands. He sidesteps and dodges.]

Floe: Eh-heh?

[Cut to somewhere else, far away, in a lightly forested area, a gazebo. We see Dominura sitting under the gazebo, sipping tea. Across the tea table sits an older woman with red eyes and long brown hair.]

Dominura: So. How do you deal with this skin condition?

[The End]

    No more Nerima Daikon Brothers for you.

    With that being said, I’d pay to see this animated :p.

    The significance of the “synchronized swimming” line only just hit me.

    I’m intrigued by the “more Christian symbolism than your average Eva fanfic” element, and how appropriate it seems.

    Complete with the Christ-like figure(s)! Only with death makes a good resurrection. But it is only truly appropriate because there is the spiritual context directly a part of the show, at any rate. I wouldn’t go as far as I would in an Eva fanfic, because even if the religious elements are there, it is a spiritual vacuum. With Simoun, there’s substance.
