[personal profile] lemniscate
the rock opera (that includes the dead girlfriend song, proper name pending, and (do you know) she wants revenge?) has a fairly decent storyline now, although i'm not sure how to make it logical.

it also has a name, but the acronym is unwieldy as hell, so it's the rock opera in my notes even now.

the four main characters also have names.

as follows:

the short and graceless life of miranda clay
the dead girlfriend (dies, impulses the plot; the narrator of (DYK)SWR? believes she is being persecuted for having killed her, despite that a. she's dead b. narrator did not kill her): miranda clay
* miranda because it sounded good, because people tend to favour trochees as far as names go and so miranda is as uncomfortable as my real name, and because miranda rights
* clay by popular vote, against clark and ___; retconned to be a reference to myths saying that the gods made man out of clay, and to the hazards of love; also, as a single-syllable last name, throws her off of balance even more
* miranda's name is the only positive one; miranda rights protect the person being interrogated and clay in this context has to do with building blocks and beginnings. everyone else's names are sad.
the lazarus girl (tries to bring miranda back, narrator of the dead girlfriend song): cassandra millon
* cassandra for the prophetess cassandra / the trope cassandra truth, and to mirror miranda's name
* millon for the man who enjoys classifying things
* her full name is five syllables to miranda's four, and more negative (no one believes cassandra, and the association with psychology starts here too), and has the opposite of miranda's initials
the clockwork boy (narrator of the dancing song, has garden-variety capgras' or similar, guardian of the narrator of (DYK)SWR?): jeffrey rosenhan
* named entirely after psychologists, but there are a lot of jeffreys
* rosenhan is interesting
the paranoid girl (narrator of (DYK)SWR?): ash rosenhan
* rosenhan is still cool, ash is jeffrey's sister or cousin (i haven't decided)
* okay to be honest i kind of got ash out of nowhere but i can pull a thousand references for it in a blink of an eye; her song references fire, ash tends to be an end to things, also, ash tree lane, etc.

basically i tried to symbolic names and kind of got distracted in the middle.  at least i have a stockpile (eugen, kety, ajax, salman, decety) of spare names if there are more characters than these four.  although i should hope they're not speaking characters.  it's hard enough to explain who i'm being at the time as it is.
