She Who Laughs

  • Mood:

Someone might find this vaguely amusing...

Although the game that I'm in has a relatively serious tone, silliness on the part of both the storyteller and the players is condoned. So once, our storyteller told us that if we wrote in-character filk songs (taking the tune of a song and putting your own geeky lyrics to it), we'd get experience points for them. I was the only one in the group that wrote one, but everyone else found it amusing enough that I thought I'd share it here.

Charissa is my Nos. She has a ghoul named Darius, who at this point was just a potential ghoul. He's a Biker for Christ with a shady past who has True Faith, and likes her. A lot. She's a Victorian Spiritualist Nos who keeps her dead friends around the house for company. She lies up and down to him at the onset to keep him from finding out that she's a vampire, and constantly uses Mask of 1,000 to further the illusion. And so, in the spirit of the wackiness that spawned it, I present...

(to the tune of “Matchmaker” from Fiddler On the Roof)

Darius: Charissa, Charissa, please make me your ghoul.
I’m brave and I’m smart, and really no fool.
Charissa, Charissa, please make me the one,
And I’ll be the perfect ghoul.

Charissa, Charissa, I’ll be so nice—
I’m not a Hell’s Angel, but a Biker for Christ.
Tooling around on my bike, you’ll be
The envy of the coterie.

For a medium, you’re pretty normal.
For a Nos, you’re a sexy young thing.
I hate for things to be formal,
But you don’t tell me anything!

Charissa, Charissa, I’m three steps bloodbound.
I’m starting to miss you when you’re not around.
Night after night, in St. John’s, I’m alone,
So make me a ghoul of your own.

Charissa: Darius, oh Darius, am I the vamp for you!
I’m cultured! I’m pretty! (I like dead people too.)
But I’m a nice girl, a live girl. True? True!
I promise I won’t tell you anything to cause you stress,
And I’ll make up stories, so you won’t guess!

Sabbat? Camarilla? Secret societies!
Vampires? Bloodhunts? Just antique niceties.
Cryptic inside jokes—nothing more.
Danger? There’s a little—I’d like to learn to brawl,
But purely for my defense, that’s all.

For the moment, though, ignore that. You’re what I’m looking for—
You’re caring, intelligent, calm, and affectionate…did I mention we’re in a war?

Darius: Charissa, Charissa, that’s sort of bizarre.
But I still like you just as you are.
I’ll teach you to shoot and I’ll teach you to fight
And help you to do what’s right.

Frankly, I don’t quite get it—
Some things just aren’t adding up.
Like why you’re always…forget it,
I just realized you’re a C-cup!

Charissa, Charissa, let me be your man.
I’ll play it cool. Don’t be concerned—
Though I’m a Believer, you’ll never get burned.
So let’s meet with the Prince, fight the Sabbat,
Kick us some ass, teach me the rules,
And I’ll be the best of ghouls!

LOL, I think your song is really neat. Sounds like you have a lot of fun with your Nos. I wanna check out your in-character journal as well. I myself am new to The Masquerade (almost one year) and I play a young Brujah whom I'm just crazy about! If you're curious I'd love to tell you about her.
I'd love to hear about your character; if you want to chat, you can either e-mail me at, or talk to me via IM. And the in-character journal is charissabronwyn. There are also two other in-character journals connected to it--Doctor Malkav's and Mark Dutton's. Dutton's a former PC who's now our Storyteller's signature NPC.
