TURTLESHROOM PRODUCTIONS
PROUDLY PRESENTS


A BRIEF RETELLING OF @CzokletMuss '
"This Is Madness Saga"



Hello, and welcome to my first true Fan Fiction event! Although I have spent several years now producing one-shot parody songs (see my signature), I wanted to celebrate the end of my Probation (a corrupt feature that should not exist because bans are enough) by producing REAL content for the community.

What you are about to witness is the culmination of ideas spawned in the shower, and the result of listening to quality radio programming for hours on end while playing CK2, EU4, and everything else. I hope that you will enjoy this as much as I will by making it. My family calls me a master writer. I got a perfect score on my college final exam for English and high nineties elsewhere. I hope to put a sample of this God-given talent into this work, even if it's only producing songs.

Here is what each Act will present.
When the entire Musical is fully complete, you are guarenteed to receive:
  • At least one song per Act.
  • At least one Poland Ball drawing, PB comic, or PB media per Act.
As I can't remember enough details about the entire TIM saga to write actual scripts, songs will have to do.
Some Acts will be very short due to lack of content, while others will be longer due to importance and a surplus of creativity.

This Musical will be written over the course of this year, God willing.
I have written Internet stories since 2007 AD, but I have rarely finished them. During my governing tenure of one website, from 2008-2012 AD, I started dozens of stories and finished around three or so. This means that this Musical carries a serious risk of delay. I have writers' block like nobody's business.

With these introductions out of the way, let us begin the saga!


Deus Vult,
-TURTLESHROOM

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SONG I: "Future So Bright"
MELODY
We've tossed out the Doukas
Won o'er the masses
We're pumping out ret'nues like they're from our backsides

Things are going great!
-and they're only getting better!

It seems all is well,
Success in spades.
The sun shines so bright, we never see shade!

I've got a plan waiting
Once I unite the nation
Fifty grand of spears will stomp the Muslims here!

Things are going great!
-and they're only getting better!

It seems all is well,
Success in spades.
The sun shines so bright, we never see shade!

{INSTRUMENTAL}

Well we're heavenly blessed
In God's eyes
I'm an Angeloi ruler who reached for the skys!

Things are going great!
-and they're only getting better!

It seems all is well,
Success in spades.
The sun shines so bright, we never see shade!
We never see shade!

{Instrumental}

We've tossed out the Doukas
Won o'er the masses
We're pumping out retinues like they're from our backsides

Things are going great!
-and they're only getting better!

It seems all is well,
Success in spades.
The sun shines so bright, we never see shade!
We never see shade!

SONG II: "Ain't That Byzantium"
MELODY
There's a monarch
With a slight smile
Wearing the heaviest crown.
He's got some, rebels now going through the west land.
It's all he fights, got it so blessed.

Then there's a Reverend
In Sophia
Preaching to crowds for while.
Sees the sunset:
"Hey fam'ly, remember when you go, to stop and smile!"

Oh, but ain't that Byzantium.
God loves you!
Ain't that Byzantium,
So much to do!
Ain't that Byzantium,
Unbreakable too!

Yeah, a little peace and rest,
For you and me.
For you and me.

There's a watchman, guarding the east,
His partner speaks, no cessation.
He yawns, very loud, then he smiles
Says "Pretty much, it's vacation."
"'Cause they told me, when I was younger,
Said 'boy, you'll save us from enemies',
-but like everything else, those enemies
Never posed a threat."

Oh, but ain't that Byzantium.
God loves you!
Ain't that Byzantium,
So much to do!
Ain't that Byzantium,
Unbreakable too!

Yeah, a little peace and rest,
For you and me.
For you and me.

{INSTRUMENTAL}

Well there's nobles,
Still more nobles
What do they know?
They sit and reign from their high towers
-AND VACATION DOWN AT THE SHORES OF ACHAE-O!

With the nobles,
-and their vassals.
They ain't no big deal.

'Cause the empire, baby
Pays their men,
Their bills, their lives keep still.

Oh, but ain't that Byzantium.
God loves you!
Ain't that Byzantium,
So much to do!
Ain't that Byzantium,
Unbreakable too!

Yeah, a little peace and rest,
For you and me.
Ohh!

Ain't that Byzantium.
God loves you!
Ain't that Byzantium,
So much to do!
Ain't that Byzantium,
Unbreakable too!

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah,
Little peace and rest
For you and me!

{AUTHOR'S NOTE: This song is supposed to depict Byzantium at peace. It deals with only a few peasant rebels and minor issues to keep down. The bishops look to the sunset and deliver a positive message in the evenings. The watchmen have nothing to worry about in the east because the Roman levies outdo the Muslim ones.}

ACT II: THE OBLIGATORY MARKOS CHAPTER



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SONG III: "Such Is the Life of Markos"
MELODY

He laughed at superstition
Comets and omens saw
Denied their premonition
That to his knees he'd fall.

Wormwood, it took its station
Outshone the moon at night!
Then came a great affliction
Death pain and constant fright!

Huge disease horse lords and slaughters
Blood poured down like rain
That was just the precursor
To the ultimate in pain!
'Cause then the Aztecs came!

TIED DOWN, HEARTS RIPPED OUT!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT OF CROWN!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES!
Rests over the Autocratos
HOLD TOGETHER, ROME!
Such is the life of Markos!

Such is the life of Markos!
Such is the life of Markos!

Famine in the Holy City
Might as well just be in Hell
They took his peace and they took his kindness
Dead inside but his faith won't fail

The blood flows forth like water
From the lands of Charlemagne!
Bathe all Europe in the blood
We will never be the same!
Nahua are to blame!

TIED DOWN, HEARTS RIPPED OUT!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT OF CROWN!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES!
Rests over the Autocratos
HOLD TOGETHER, ROME!
Such is the life of Markos!

Such is the life of Markos!
Such is the life of Markos!

Huge disease horse lords and slaughters
Blood poured down like rain
That was just the precursor
To the ultimate in pain!
'Cause then the Aztecs came!

TIED DOWN, HEARTS RIPPED OUT!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT OF CROWN!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES!
Rests over the Autocratos
HOLD TOGETHER, ROME!
Such is the life of Markos!

TIED DOWN, HEARTS RIPPED OUT!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE CRUSHING WEIGHT OF CROWN!
Such is the life of Markos!
THE SWORD OF DAMOCLES!
Rests over the Autocratos
HOLD TOGETHER, ROME!
Such is the life of Markos!

Such is the life of Markos!
Such is the life of Markos!​

ACT II: THE OBLIGATORY MARKOS CHAPTER

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Song IV: "Or No Way At All"
MELODY
{INSTRUMENTAL OPENING}

I was born to rule
I was born a king
That freakin' Shcism it needs mending

I 'gotta do it Markos
Or no way at all.

Rome was at last at peace
-and so I hit my knees
Thanking God for all these good things

I 'gotta do it Markos
Or no way at all.

-but it came crashing down
-and now I've found
Such evil abound

Satan had it his way
Or no way at all!

Now the world is at stake
I can't let the realm break
I 'gotta SLICE MY KIDS AND

CRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!

MARKOS!!!
OR NO WAY AT ALL!!!


My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!

I had to do it Markos
Or no way at all!

My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!

(You had to do it Markos
You sob and you cry!)

I told my kids
That great pain would come
I would whip myself to their brays

So they said "Do it Markos,"
"We will love you always"

The screams they shook the ground
So I laid down
Flaggelate my brow

I had to do it that way
Or else Rome would fall way!

My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!

I had to do it Markos
Or no way at all!

My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!

(You had to do it Markos
You sob and you cry!)

{INSTRUMENTAL}

My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!

I had to do it Markos
Or no way at all!

My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!

I had to do it Markos
I had to do it Markos!


My God please
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!


(You had to do it Markos
You sob and you cry!)


Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
Forgive me!
FORGIVE ME!

Of all the songs I have written, this one is BY FAR my favorite. I may replace the large text (CRYYYY) with an image to make it larger and more dramatic looking.

{ AUTHOR'S NOTE: This song is meant to encapsulate what was, to me, the most dramatic and truly sympathetic moment in Markos' lifetime. When his realm was in danger of succession wars and factions, Markos castrated his own children. He never forgave himself for that, and I wanted to capture the dual facts that Markos HAD to do this to prevent infighting in a time of literally apocalyptic doom, and that his kids KNEW why this was being done. Markos whipped himself with a cat-of-nine-tails as his children were castrated. He bled all across the floor in an attempt to share his kids' pain. }

{ In this song, I am attempting to analyze Markos as a historian would in RL. I am sympathetic to Markos' cause and am reporting the tragedies he committed, but explaining that he had no choice in the scenario he was in. Markos would have unquestioanbly told his kids why he was about to do what he did to them. Maybe they would understand? I am rationalizing Markos' desparate measures because anything less would have been the end of Rome and everyone in it. }

{ I hold that the Cynical Trait that Markos possessed did not make him an unbeliever. If there was anyone that needed to lean on God in that story more, it was Markos. As Czoklet noted, the tragedies that led up to the Aztecs' arrival rendered Markos a shell of his former self, dead inside and numbed to everything good in life. In the Book of Jeremiah and the Book of Lamentations, the Prophet Jeremiah made similar accusations against God and asked why He was abandoning them, forsaking them, and witholding justice. God let Jeremiah vent and showed him His reasoning. }

{ I look at Markos much like I look at Biblical figures, because 1) Czoklet is that good a writer and 2) I oppose the prevailing theory that Markos was somehow a bad king or was not looking out for Rome's best interests. }

Song V: "On Thrones of Bone"
MELODY
{ The Khagan of the Ilkhanate is fast asleep on his throne. Enter HEIR. }

{ DIALOG }

HEIR: "My Khagan. Sire! Wake up!"

KHAGAN: "What is it?

HEIR: "A city has fallen to your great horde!"

KHAGAN: "As expected. My men sure were horsing around."

HEIR: "There is no time for puns!"

KHAGAN: "Come on, I'm sure that made you mare-y."

HEIR: "Father, that's enough."

KHAGAN: "All right. Here we go again."

{ SINGING BEGINS }

HEIR: Once more we got a burnt town

KHAGAN: Quite a quick fall!

HEIR: Loot, babes and their weapons now

KHAGAN: We took them all!

HEIR: They don't surrender often

KHAGAN: That's when the fun all begins

HEIR: Hordes are quite popular, saddle up who wouldn't, want to go raiding

KHAGAN: Ha, and Rome, they say we're savage

HEIR: I admit, Khan, it's fun to ravage!

KHAGAN: -and ignore the Aztecs, they are childs' play

HEIR: -and we're the ones that bring the par-tay

KHAGAN: Say what they want, until we gallop in

HEIR: Then in a few days their skulls are bashed in

KHAGAN: We are monsters, the settlers whine

HEIR: They're crying foal, that suits us fine!

{ CHORUS }

We come, in peace, don't take your battle stations
O-pen, your gates, and let us rule your nation

If you, say no then your land we're burning
In time, don't fight: this lesson you'll be learning

Dear king, the choice, it is yours to follow
Our men, will come back, at dawn tomorrow

Submit to, our hordes, let it be known
Lest we construct, a throne of your bones!

{ DIALOG }

HEIR: "Really, Khan?"

KHAGAN: "What?"

HEIR: "Fashioning their skeletons into a chair?"

KHAGAN: "Yup!"

HEIR: "By Tengri! That is really... clever."

KHAGAN: "Heh. Thanks, my son." ( * Khagan winks *)

{ SINGING RESUMES }

HEIR: "You're fighting on the steppes now"

KHAGAN: "No chance at all"

HEIR: "Your corpse will be carted out"

KHAGAN: "Prepare to brawl!"

HEIR: "Cat'phracts are nothing to us"

KHAGAN: "We'll trample you all to dust"

HEIR: "With Mongols you'll scare children"

KHAGAN: "Forever more!"

HEIR: "I, the Khagan's Crown Prince, laugh at Rome and their foolish pretense"

KHAGAN: "Crush the Romans with all of our horses"

HEIR: "Brilliant Khan, that'll render them corpses"

HEIR: "There's no way a man can fight our archers"

KHAGAN: "That is one way to make Rome quiver!"

HEIR: "COME FATHER, THAT'S NOT EVEN RHYMING"

KHAGAN: "Sounds like someone's crossbow's broken." ( * HEIR pulls at hair, that didn't rhyme either *)

{ REPRISE CHORUS MELODY, DIFFERENT WORDS }

No peace, on earth, we ride across your nations
Blood death, and tears, that is our vocation

We are the masters, you are fertilizer
Your King will die, with kids and advisors

We'll strike you down, with our awesome power
-and all your bones, be pushing up the flowers

Submit to, our hordes, let it be known
Lest we construct, a throne of your bones!

{ BRIDGE }

HEIR: Some day we'll march on ISTANBUL

HEIR: We'll behead their king, I can be hopeful!

{ KHAGAN SOLO }
Look, take as a promise
Conquest is what we accomplish
The City, of World's Desire
Will burn down to ashes in a greater fire
The closer we come, the bloodier it gets
Rome and the Aztecs will all be DEAD
Ha! Rome warns us of Hell
-but here on earth, thing won't go well

{ REVERT TO VERSE DUET STRUCTURE }

HEIR: Watch as we ride through your town

KHAGAN: It's all our fault

HEIR: We'll smash your temples now

KHAGAN: Your Jesus colt!

HEIR: Those who survive this razing

KHAGAN: Will know meaning of crazy

HEIR: Don't mess around with Mongols

KHAGAN: Your future will be hazy

HEIR: You call God but there's no replying

HEIR: 'Cause it's the sky you should be scrying!

KHAGAN: Your God ain't real and that's a fact

( * HEIR pulls out bow * }

HEIR: I'll put down your priest with one quick attack

{ * HEIR'S bow is revealed to be broken * }
{ * KHAGAN plays three "wha wha whaaa" sour notes, indicating failure, on a horsehead fiddle * }

HEIR: DAD YOU'RE A JERK

KHAGAN (cutting off): You know I am fond, of Morin-Khuur*!

HEIR: ONE MORE PUN, AND I'LL HIT THE ROOF

KHAGAN: Come on my son, you're my better hoof!

{ CHORUS }

We come, in peace, don't take your battle stations
O-pen, your gates, and let us rule your nation

If you, say no then your land we're burning
In time, don't fight: this lesson you'll be learning

Dear king, the choice, it is yours to follow
Our men, will come back, at dawn tomorrow

Submit to, our hordes, let it be known
Lest we construct, a throne of your bones!
{ FIN }

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

IT'S FINALLY BACK, AND ABOUT TIME TOO.

HA HA! -AND YOU THOUGHT THIS MUSICAL FAN FICTION WAS OVER! HA! YOU ARE SO WRONG!
THE MUSLIM WITCH-KHAN IS NEXT.


* = It is pronounced "ORE-IN-KURR", and thus has the same "ER" sound as "jerk"
