*eyes shoot open as I’m drifting off to sleep* AU where after the Empire was founded, Coruscant was renamed Palpatinople

#palpatown#palpatinopolis#philapalpia: the planet of palpable love#oh god make this stop

*sings*

Coruscant is Palpatinople
It was Coruscant, now Palpatinople
The Jedi are gone, Palpatinople:
Here’s how liberty dies
And the Sith Lords rise.

Everyone on Palpatinople
Lived on Coruscant (now Palpatinople)
But if you are rich on Palpatinople
You were rich on Coruscant too.

(Even “Coruscant” was once “Had Abbadon.”
Why George changed it, here’s a clue:
Zahn’s writing in the the Old EU!)

OH, Sheev renamed it “Palpatinople,”
He’s the Senate now; Palpatinople–
How will “Palpatinople” get the boot?
That’s up to the Rebellion and Luuuuke!

*musical Wookiee noises*
It’sEvil (it’sEvil)
*more musical Wookiee noises*
It’sEvil.

Coruscant is Palpatinople
It was Coruscant, now Palpatinople
The Jedi are gone, Palpatinople:
How will “Palpatinople” get the boot?
That’s up to Han, Leia, and Luuuuke…

…and Rogue One (One-ONE-onnne)
*badum-tss*

Omega 13 – The Faithful Sidekicks

“Omega 13,” a dance number by The Faithful Sidekicks (Eric and Jen Distad), who are made of win. This one is for those who love Galaxy Quest. Which should be everyone. Yes, that was a judgment.

Come on, do it again
Let’s rewind the scene
Put your coat on the hanger
And grab your doppelganger
Let’s do the Omega 13

Sun of Vulcan – Debra F. Sanders & Cynthia McQuillin

Sun of Vulcan grant that I may be restored
I do not seek nor understand, what I am fighting for

Have you always wanted to hear a heartfelt song about Pon Farr?  Would you like some genuine, vintage, archival quality Spirk content?  Yes, yes you would.

“Sun of Vulcan,” by Debra F. Sanders & Cynthia McQuillin

Mamas raise all your Princesses up to be Generals – theactualcluegirl

theactualcluegirl:

s-leary:

“General.”

*Filks Waylon Jennings*

Generals ain’t easy to love and they’re harder to
hold
They care more about the next battle than diamonds or gold
DeathStar destroyers and Amazon Heroes
And Dora Milaje are proof
You may not understand her, an’ she might die young
But she’ll shake the world to it’s roof.

Mamas, raise all your princesses up to be Generals
Instruct them in tactics and honor and pride
How to stand fast when they’re on the right side.
Mamas raise all your princesses up to be Generals
‘Cos they’ll take on the world and they’ll fight like a girl
To save the ones that they love

Generals take lovers who know that they go where they have to
Where the troops need them, and where the foe gathers to fight
Empires tremble when they take the field and then Fall in their moment of triumph
Cause they don’t know surrender, and if they retreat
The trap it leads into holds tight

Mamas, raise all your princesses up to be Generals
Instruct them in tactics and honor and pride
How to stand fast when they’re on the right side.
Mamas raise all your princesses up to be Generals
‘Cos they’ll take on the world and they’ll fight like a girl
To save the home that they love

Favourite Daughter – Leslie Hudson

Seven’s my favourite daughter
I know what’s best
I will protect her
You and your kind
Will be slaughtered
If you stand in the way
Of my favourite daughter

“Favourite Daughter” by Leslie Hudson, a chilling duet for Janeway and the Borg Queen. I got to see Leslie Hudson perform this live with Dr. Mary Crowell, and it was amazing.

Lyrics available on Bandcamp.

Replicator Malfunction Blues – Chris Conway

I got the replicator malfunction blues
It messes up whatever I choose
Chief come and fix it and don’t be late
We never had this trouble on Deep Space 8
It’s driving me crazy, and I’m losing weight
And I got those replicator malfunction blues

“Replicator Malfunction Blues” by Chris Conway, a song about the trials of living on a certain space station.

Lyrics available on the Deep Space Love CD page (scroll halfway down the page to get to the lyrics section).
