My Eternal Night

The asari are a blue skinned mono-gendered humanoid race that reproduces by forming a psychic meld with their partner which temporarily links their nervous systems and allows the asari to explore their partner's genetic heretige and choose which traits to pass on to their offspring. Since the discovery of alien races a social stigma has developed for asari that choose to reproduce with another asari; it's considered wasteful as no new genetic traits and cultural insights are gained from the union. Children from these unions are generally looked down upon as 'purebloods'.

Ardat-Yakshi are asari suffering from a genetic disorder preventing conventional melding of nervous systems during mating. Instead, Ardat-Yakshi electro-chemically ravage their partners' nervous systems, in extreme cases leaving victims as vegetative invalids or corpses. This condition only occurs in pureblood asari and is one of the reasons for the pureblood prejudice.

Ancient asari mythology held Ardat-Yakshi as gods of destruction, depicting them as villains of countless legends and as the anti-heroes of numerous asari epics.

01. Possession - Sarah Mclachlan -
Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide
voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time
the night is my companion, and solitude my guide
would I spend forever here and not be satisfied?

02. Artificial Nocturne - Metric -
I'm as fucked up as they say I can't fake the daytime
Found an entrance to escape into the dark
Got false lights for the sun it’s an artificial nocturne
It's an outsider’s escape from a broken heart

03. Red Sky - Thrice -
The wind's a cheating wife, her tongue a thirsty knife.
And she could take your life with one good kiss.
Can you see the sky turn red? As morning's light breaks over me,
Know tonight we'll make our bed at the bottom of the sea.

04. When I Am Queen - Jack Off Jill -
When I am queen on royal throne made out of parts of broken bones of all the devils I have known that suck the angels dry
When I am queen I'll have my way I'll make it drowning Dollie day
and all the tears that we have cried will suck back in our eyes

05. Eyes On Fire - Blue Foundation -
I won't soothe your pain
I won't ease your strain
You'll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain

06. Damned and Divine - Tarja -
Frozen in time, yearning forbidden wishes.
Damned and divine scars of my broken kisses.
What will follow if tomorrow's blind? My eternal night.
As the wind takes me away from you before the morning light.
My sins are fading into view, I'm so weary deep inside

07. This Fire - Lisa Miskovsky -
Love is such a monster love, be careful where you step
be careful where you lay down boy, lay down boy
We were giving, we were giving everything that we knew
Got to give us, got to give us something else to do

08. Catalyst - Anna Nalick -
So I'm taking these pills for to fill up my soul
And I'm drinking them down with cheap alcohol
And you'd be inclined to be mine for the taking
And part of this terrible mess that I'm making
