There are myriads of roadblocks when trying to write this story. So many that Caged Birds became necessary as its own story with its own set of notes. And right now I'm worried about the Daodan origin story (the artificial immune cells Hasegawa invented) and the Bioc origin story. It's complicated matter creating believable fiction that is rooted in real world knowledge. There's this feeling that it doesn't turn out good enough. This lets the writing progress painfully slow. This kind of stress leads to creative burnout when it lasts over long time.


AMV-like ideas

Zack Hemsey makes some intense, atmospheric rap mixed with electronics/instrumental elements. Normally I don't listen to rap but this case I will make an exception. ^_^


Alphabetic order


The Gard's family theme

So Silent
Vandret visiting the Gards. They wish to "escape" from WCG and Syndicate.


End of Griffin theme

Greeting The Menance
"A cunning and dogged leader, Griffin's enemies know that he will stop at nothing to maintain order and civil control."
Black season, due to Traton's PR campaign the citizen are totally sympathizing with the Syndicate.
Fall of WCG = payback time


Hasegawa's theme

I Can Get It Back
Lose of Jamie and working insanely on the Daodan.

I see a ghost in a photograph

I feel that wave come up under me

I see myself in that other half

I feel that pain pull me underneath

I see the times that we'll never have

I hear the sighs of content we'd breathe

I feel the smile that I wish I had

But all these moments are projections of the past

Cuz a part of me died and a liveliness was lost when you passed

And a light in me dimmed as a certainty was slipping through my grasp

Now I'm picking up the pieces getting cut open by shards of broken glass

Well how long can this last

Missing is that purpose in my life but I can get it back


This isn't gone

I can get it back


I see no soul in the mirror

Only see signs of demise getting nearer

"Time heals wounds" is absurd as a theorem

But I can see above the sky's getting clearer

And though despair of things before will never leave

Although our past mistakes can never be retrieved

Way out in the distance is a vessel on the seas

And I'm a set a heading toward the sun, cuz I believe that I can get it back

All that hope and that joy

That trust and that care

Those dreams of a boy, I can get it back

All that love and that worth

That touch of a flare

That feel of the earth, I can get it back

That drive to extreme

That confidence to lead

That willingness to bleed, I will get it back

Reassembled when I'm done

Depression on the run as I come beating on these drums


This isn't gone

I can get it back


Battles with the mind and the timid stand off

Slightest bit of pain and those tender folk scoff

Choose the destination but that bridge must be crossed

Guess the bottom line is we're cut from different cloths

Borders they divide but I'm inclined to cut across

Reach the outer limits then I cut away my loss

Continue toward the goal in sight no matter what the cost

Emboldened by this chance, I'm not afraid to get lost

Cuz now I'm pushing forward and nobody dare oppose

Now I'm moving faster while that ticking clock slows

And now I'm climbing higher like the ground can't hold

So I don't plan on stopping when this summit plateaus

I'm that invasion of the body by the soul

Sickened from the cold but soon a certified whole

Never one to fight but I just hit it on the nose

It took my spirit, but I got it back, case closed

Hasegawa looking at Jamie's photo.

Camera pans to his face. Room gets slightly darker.

Reflection on the photo (glass).

Falling to the knees, holding his chest. Heavy breathing.

Flowing images. Imaginations of happy moments.

Lying together on wild, high, not to dense, sunny grass...

Closed eyes. Smiling.

Darkening clouds.

Very dark. Jamie's grave situated at that lawn. Hasegawa's eyes in shadow.

World around Hasegawa becomes almost pure grey colored.

Picking up again Jamie's photo. Cuts his fingers.

Standing alone in the room. Camera pans out. A mental image of Jamie in front of Hasegawa is fading away.

A walk outside the city, a look into the clouded sky.


Comes home again. Takes pen and note block.

Starts sketching and writing. A stack. Black fade-out.


Black fade-in. Stands in front of the mirror.

Greying hair. Face and forehead wrinkles are clearly visible.

Punches into the mirror.

Outside again, windy and cloudy.

Looking up again.

Walks alongside the fence they once passed.

Stops and looks through towards the ill vegetation.

Resting on ground. Darkness. Imagine an oversized, glowing, constantly adapting cell.

Eyes are widening. (Or he tries to grab it. One hand on the ground.)

Time reversal of wound healing and skin hurting thorn.

Family scene: Jamie, Hasegawa, and the children.

Trip in a green wilderness. Joking with Muro. Eating sandwiches.

Hasegawa grabs sun beams at a small forest glade.

Sits on a mossy trunks. Slowly stoking the green surface.

Hasegawa at a demonstration.

Speaking to people of the demonstration. Rising fists.

Getting hit by police clubs.

Standing up again. Determined.

In the lab throwing papers. Monitors shows "construction of Daodan Recombinatoric Universal Messenger failed".


Students join. Kerr joins. Mukade joins.

Pensatore joins. Avatara joins.


Headaches.

Arguments with the other scientists.

Fist fight with Pensatore.

Pensatore and Hasegawa lying at different corners of the room.

Mukade and Pensatore also have an argument.

Hasegawa screams. This night he sits in the cold winter night and stares into the darkness.

Muro is introduced to the Syndicate HQ staff.

Hasegawa watching this with jammed fist at the window.

Hasegawa's head over a glowing screen. Pensatore leave the room.

Pills. Fast motion but clock slows down.

Avatara's simulation shows "faster than real-time", factor 1000.

More data is seen.

Screen shows: "Daodan adaption framework <<Oni>> completed"

Collapsing satisfied on the chair.

The other guys are seen in the lab checking the data.

Cam pans out.


Konoko's theme

The Way (Instrumental)
Black season: Konoko stands on destroyed streets (resembles Outro images)


NPU theme

Slave
Nishio and the other NPUs eventually turning against the "Syndicate accessories".


Mukade's theme

Nice To Meet Me
Freed from Pensatore's grasp he participates in the Green Village battle. He finds a buried lab with one of GOP's creatures.
He copies himself and tells the copy to take over the creature (neural merging) to clean up the area of any combatants.
After erasing Hasegawa's memes, the war-weary Mukade returns to the States where he takes "his" place at Sakura's side.
An weak image of Hasegawa is show in the lab, fading out.


Ryu's theme

Don't Get In My Way
Former Syndicate child soldier with Japanese decent, kidnapped by Mukade.
He doesn't have a Daodan. He was raised to verify Muro's progress. They had a friendly rivalship.
While Muro's had the Daodan to his aid, Ryu had to train double to merely reach that level of strength.
He is 100% badass.


Saomi's theme

Vengeance
Lose of Muro, burning flashbacks.



Biocracy theme

Lost And Found
Tensions within the Magellan biocracy.


Gaia theme

Soothsayer
When Memehunter lands on planet Pyllion. Their Gaia AI is hopelessly outmatched.


Yorick's theme

[1]
An old avatar that takes up his damaged proxy, regaining his own humanity in the process that was once burned away.


Transition theme

No Man's Land
The lyrics start at 4:10.
