So you might remember Meg sent us a song once before for a fanworks challenge (“Longing Song“), and this time she brought us one in response to the Orlando challenge. She writes:
“For this most recent fanworks call, I have a song for you. “Moondog Kingdom” is a song about an M3 (plus a few of their inner circle) trip to the Magic Kingdom in an A/U where at the end of the 1989 tour, instead of everything going fully to hell, everyone just goes to Disney World instead. (Also in this A/U Splash Mountain exists in 1989. Apparently it wasn’t actually built until 1992. But that’s what imagination is for – tweaking theme park history to suit your silly songwriting needs!)
“Thank you for making this call for fanworks. In the immediate few days after the Pulse shooting, I was reeling mentally, and when I saw this call it gave me something to focus on. (My deal: I’m a fellow “B” in the QUILTBAG, and I was born in 1987, so I came of age and did my coming out in a time where things – while not perfect or nearly safe enough for everyone – have been getting steadily better and in many ways have been better than I know they were for people before me. This was the first time something of this magnitude of anti-LGBT hatred has happened during my lifetime where I’ve actually been at an age to take it in and it just…hit. Hard.) My brain was basically a circuit of shock and grief and anger and upset-ness for a little while, and I knew it would take a few days for it to stop running that way, but I knew that when it did I would have this to look forward to working on. And when I finally did get to work on this, it was healing, as intended, and it was just fun. I always enjoy writing songs for DGC. :)”
You should be able to play the song in the WordPress embedded MP3 player:
