Category --Not Specified--
DescriptionExactly what would other cultures make of the music of Buffy's era?

This can be a crossover with any genre that does not have 'modern' music. Lord of the Rings is preferable, but any non-advanced society would work. (Abydos from Stargate, etc.)

[REQUIREMENTS]

Must have the lyrics from the song 'Land of Confusion' by Disturbed, in whole or part. (Could be a character singing it, or simply as a header for the plot of a chapter, etc.)

BtVS main character must either be Buffy, Willow, or Spike.

*If crossed with Lord of the Rings, Legolas must be in the story as much as possible. (My precioussssssss)

[OPTIONAL]

A BtVS character singing the song 'Land of Confusion', in whole or part. (The circumstances of WHY they're singing it are up to you.)

A BtVS character trying to explain the intricacies of modern music-specifically rock and roll or metal-to someone from a less advanced culture. (IE explaining that Superman as mentioned in the song is NOT real.)

-=Land of Confusion Lyrics=-

I must have dreamed a thousand dreams
Been haunted by a million screams
But I can hear the marching feet
They're moving into the street

Now, did you read the news today?
They say the danger has gone away
But I can see the fire's still alight
They're burning into the night

There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go around
Can't you see this is the land of confusion?

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in

Oh, superman, where are you now?
When everything's gone wrong somehow?
The men of steel, the men of power
Are losing control by the hour

This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
But there's not much love to go around
Tell me why this is the land of confusion

This is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth living in

I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake of this madness, as I held you tight
So long ago

I won't be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We're not just making promises
That we know we'll never keep

There's too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there's not much love to go round
Can't you see this is the land of confusion?

Now, this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we're given
Use them and let's start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we're given
Stand up and let's start showing
Just where our lives are going to

AU take on 'Chosen'. What if the Scoobies didn't defeat the First? What if Buffy and Spike found themselves in Middle Earth? Post-RotK. *Sadly, on hiatus.*
