Found a few more songs, with thanks to Liyra. :3 Had to listen to them a few times, but they finally clicked to me that they fit. Not every line fits, so I bolded in the lyrics what lines really fit.

First song is for Deriaz: Here It Goes Again - OK Go

"It could be ten, but then again,
I can't remember half an hour since a quarter to four.

Throw on your clothes, the second side of Surfer Rosa,
And you leave me with my jaw on the floor.

Just when you think (think) you're in control,
Just when you think (think) you've got a hold,
Just when you get on a roll,
Here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.
I should have known, should have known, should have known again,
But here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.


It starts out easy, something simple, something sleazy,
Something inching past the edge of reserve.

Now through lines of the cheap venetian blinds
Your car is pulling off of the curb.

Just when you think you're in control,
Just when you think you've got a hold,
Just when you get on a roll,
Here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.
I should have known, should have known, should have known again,
But here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.


I guess there's gotta be a break in the monotony,
But Jesus, when it rains how it pours.

Throw on your clothes, the second side of Surfer Rosa,
And you leave me, yeah, you leave me.

Oh, here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.
I should have known, should have known, should have known again,
But here it goes again.
Oh, here it goes again.
"




Second song would be Ragyr's. Definitely. Liyra linked me to this one, and I gotta say. . . There isn't a single line that doesn't fit him. (Plus, I really love the story in the music video. Kinda fits him as well. (And no, it's not because it's a little robot. Lol.))

Ragyr's song: Walking Disaster - Sum 41

"I haven't been home for a while
I'm sure everything's the same
Mom and Dad both in denial
And only jump to take the blame

Sorry, Mom, but I don't miss you
Father's no name you deserve
I'm just a kid with no ambitions
Wouldn't come home for the world

Never know what I've become
The king of all that's said and done
The forgotten son

This city's buried in defeat
I walk along these no-name streets
Wave goodbye to all

As I fall...

At the dead-end I begin
To burn the bridge of innocence
Satisfaction guaranteed
A pillow-weight catastrophe

On a mission nowhere bound
Inhibitions underground
A shallow grave I
Have dug all by myself

And now I've been gone for so long
I can't remember who was wrong
All innocence is long gone
I pledge allegiance to a world of disbelief
Where I belong

A walking disaster
The son of all bastards
You regret you made me
It's too late to save me
(You regret you made me
It's too late to save me)

As far as I can tell
It's just voices in my head
Am I talking to myself?
'Cause I don't know what I just said

(And she said)
As far as where I fell
Maybe I'm better off dead
Am I at the end of nowhere
Is this as good as it gets?

And now I've been gone for so long
I can't remember who was wrong
All innocence is long gone
I pledge allegiance to a world of disbelief
Where I belong

A walking disaster
The son of all bastards
You regret you made me
It's too late to save me
(To save me, to save me, to save me, ...)

To save me, to save me, to save me, to save me

And now I've been gone for so long
I can't remember who was wrong
All innocence is long gone
I pledge allegiance to a world of disbelief
Where I belong

A walking disaster
The son of all bastards
You regret you made me
It's too late to save me

I will be home in a while
You don't have to say a word
I can't wait to see you smile
Wouldn't miss it for the world

I will be home in a while
You don't have to say a word
I can't wait to see you smile
Wouldn't miss it for the world"

I don't know about Kikyo, but Sacien's theme song would be Tommorrow's Way by Yui. 

The translation: (the original is Japanese)

I want to wipe away the moment,
But I want to cling to it all the same.
I don't understand myself.

No one has a second shot at life.
I could try to hide in a strange town,
But I'd still be full of doubt.

I want to escape from my childish urges,
I'll just keep wallowing in excuses if I don't.

If I follow the scraps of my memories,
I can return to those innocent days,
Like a little girl in another life.

I dreamed a world in my childhood.
I was born to make it come true.
I'm a baby, and I want to cry.
But if I have to take this pain
To make my dreams come true,
It's not so bad...

If life itself is a battle,
Then I can only win or lose.
Even I get that.

All this pain makes me want to cry.
Now an urge to chase tomorrow springs up.

I want to live on the right path.
I just want to live on the right path.
Like that girl, long long ago.

There was a breath I felt as a child,
I was born to live up to it.
I'm a baby, and I want to cry.
But if I have to take this pain
To make my dreams come true,
It's not so bad...

I don't want to trip over people's words.
I don't want to be a confused little kid.

The future has its own promises.
It's all right if I can't be a kid again.
I might be afraid of Tomorrow's Way,
But Life is a one-way street.

I dreamed so many things as a child,
I was born to live up to them all.

I'm a baby, but I won't cry or whine.
If I have to take a little pain
To make my dreams come true,
It's not so bad at all...

And Kat's would be Breaking the Habit by Linkin Park

Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I'm picking me apart again
You all assume
I'm safe here in my room
Unless I try to start again

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I know it's not alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than anytime before
I had no options left again

I don't want to be the one
The battles always choose
'Cause inside I realize
That I'm the one confused

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don't know why I instigate
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit tonight

I'll paint it on the walls
'Cause I'm the one at fault
I'll never fight again
And this is how it ends

I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
To show you what I mean
I don't know how I got this way
I'll never be alright
So I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit
I'm breaking the habit tonight
Out of my mind, back in ten minutes

Been listening to a lot of Within Temptation lately, and "Frozen" seems to fit Valianna quite well at the moment...


I can’t feel my senses
I just feel the cold
All colors seem to fade away
I can’t reach my soul
I would stop running, if knew there was a chance
It tears me apart to sacrifice it all but I’m forced to let go


Tell me I’m frozen but what can I do?
Can’t tell the reasons I did it for you
When lies turn into truth I sacrificed for you
You say that I’m frozen but what can I do?


I can feel your sorrow
You won’t forgive me,
but I know you’ll be all right
It tears me apart that you will never know but I have to let go


Tell me I’m frozen but what can I do?
Can’t tell the reasons I did it for you
When lies turn into truth I sacrificed for you
You say that I’m frozen but what can I do?


Everything will slip way
Shattered peaces will remain
When memories fade into emptiness
Only time will tell its tale
If it all has been in vain


I can’t feel my senses
I just feel the cold
Frozen...
But what can I do?
Frozen...


Tell me I’m frozen but what can I do?
Can’t tell the reasons I did it for you
When lies turn into truth I sacrificed for you
You say that I’m frozen, frozen...

Praut's is probably a long time favorite:

My Axe - ICP (google the lyrics, I didn't post them because they can be less than G rated friendly goodness), however he's Lawfully Good these days, so stick with the "My axe is my buddy, I take him when I walk." part lest you make the mistake of being evil in his turf.

Haven't given as much thought with Versatillas or Spindoctor, but I'm thinking on it now.

((Just because I think more people need to be listening to Within Temptation... *grin*  This isn't a song for Val, but I figure this MUST apply to one of you, surely... ))


Hand Of Sorrow


The child without a name grew up to be the hand
To watch you, to shield you or kill on demand
The choice he’d made he could not comprehend
His blood a grim secret they had to command

He’s torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

The curse of his powers tormented his life
Obeying the crown was a sinister price
His soul was tortured by love and by pain
He surely would flee but the oath made him stay

He’s torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

Please forgive me for the sorrow, for leaving you in fear
For the dreams we had to silence, that’s all they’ll ever be
Still I’ll be the hand that serves you
Though you’ll not see that it is me

So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
Will all our sins be justified?

I've changed my mind. Kat's themesong isn't Breaking the Habit, though it does fit her. lol =P

In truth, Kat's character has had some major personality changes throughout her life, so her themesong depends on when you ask her.

I've divided her life into four sections, hence four songs. Because of that, I'm posting links to the songs and lyrics instead of typing them

1: The  seven years when  Kat lived on her own  in  a forest. This was  directly after the murder of her parents, up to the point when Sir. Kross found her and saved her from starvation:

Move Along- All American Rejects

http://youtube.com/watch?v=1JHlViOMx0A

2: For many years after her rescue, Kat was mean, heartless, enjoyed violence, and hated all non shifters with a passion. Eventually she realized that hating them for there race was just as bad as the Flame condemning all shifters. She began trying to change, but wasn't able to for a very long time. After all, she'd been like this for around 80 years.

Animal I Have Become-Three Days Grace

http://youtube.com/watch?v=ipYvh_Jb-8U

3: As Kross's illness worsened a new man was put in charge of the Iron Cross. He was corrupted and authorized evil deeds. Kat had to decide weather she would follow the organization she'd served for 80 years or follow her morals and betray them.

The Hand That Feeds-Nine Inch Nails

http://youtube.com/watch?v=ipYvh_Jb-8U

4: Kat has betrayed the now corrupted Iron Cross and is in hiding. On her own again, minus two homes, she has a lot of time to think, and realizes that she isn't happy. She's spent her entire life fighting, and being angry. Eventually she makes it to Stormreach, but finds that she has no social skills. At all. So, she spends her time alone. She joined the Golden Night to give her something to do, but still has few friends among there number.

Boulevard of Broken Dreams-Green Day

http://youtube.com/watch?v=60x5FHpwY8g




If I had to chose one song to be her themesong, it would be Animal I Have Become, because it still fits her now. (And I love the pun =P)
