Last week on Music Monday Sarah W asked if I had anything for a “hardboiled were duck.” One of the best questions I’ve ever been asked. Hands down.
Well, off the top of my head I didn’t have anything (to my great dismay), but as I listened to music throughout the week, I searched for something. This post isn’t to say I found it, or that I’m done searching for it. It’s to say I found a couple of “maybe”s and you can tell me if that could work for a hardboiled wereduck. (I do have a little more to work with than y’all what with having read a couple thousand words of this wereduck, but for your sake, picture…Avery Cates smashed up with Harry Dresden; AKA an Urban Fantasy hard-ass with a chip on his shoulder (and good reason for it).
Our First Contender: 30 Seconds to Mars might have the answer somewhere in their catalog. I always think tortured songs work so well for Urban Fantasy, since the characters are typically steeped in bad mojo. The first song that seemed to match was “Fallen,” but I may completely change my mind after looking back through my music.
Our Second Contender: This is actually in the running for the theme song for the main character of my dystopian ms, but I thought it worked for a wereduck in a werewolf kinda world. Depeche Mode’s “Wrong” would work for a lot of characters, though. Especially ’cause things go real wrong in UF real fast.*
So, what do you think? Wereduck-ish? :)
