Generally, I think people are aware of what theme song threads are, usually popping up in pre-game. I imagine there are a variety of reasons why people choose certain songs for their characters, such as the song representing the character's personality or ideals, the type of music they listen to, or just something goes along while reading them.
However, as I said earlier, this mostly happens during pre-game, and maybe isn't totally representative of a character as it use to be. SOTF is a big monkey wrench into these's kids lives, so I thought it would be interesting if there was any kind of change in other people's characters themes after all is said and done. Bonus points if you dig up/remember what your kids theme use to be. I'll also say that Mini kids are fair game in this thread too, if you want.

UnPy with the novel and interesting thread concepts that go woefully underappreciated once again D:
I'll help out my fair share.
Lili William's theme, in the V6 Character Theme Song thread, was Rest Aria, by The Residents. This song, sad and somewhat disturbing, was what I envisioned for her run, but what resulted was something a lot more bittersweet than I could have really imagined. I used an incredible amount of song titles for Lili's thread titles, but I'm unsure any of them really fit how things turned out for her. Now, when I think of how to musically express Lili and her story, I think to, of all things, sappy indie music that she would probably be somewhat opposed to.

Arthur is a little trickier for me to really pinpoint what I had expected for him going into the game, but I know it wasn't something as bleak and hopeless as what turned out from him. I guess I had the reverse expectation as I did for Lili, in a sense, though I know that really isn't the case. I was thinking something kind of a little happy, but still introspective, so I guess musically I could represent this with The Suburbs, by Arcade Fire. By the time that Arthur died, however, I had spun into something a whole lot more unhappy and depressing than I really thought I would get into at the outset.

God, both these songs are really sad, aren't they? I'll try to write something happier for V7.
