Title: Dawn With Bloody Hands
Fandom: Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Subject: Micaiah
Warnings: SPOILERS up to the end of Part III of Radiant Dawn.
Notes: The mix is focused on Micaiah during the war, her perspective on things and other people’s views of her; I didn’t touch upon the other facets of her character. This being a canon mix, at least one of the songs is Micaiah/Sothe in flavour. (There are also invisible spoilers you’ll only get if you’ve played the game. Why yes that makes me happy.)

Until I get around to writing real pimping/gushing posts regarding my lesser-known fandoms, this will serve as bait to ensnare innocent souls be a small offering.

1. Once in Every Lifetime – Jem
Trust in your path, you've been chosen
Become your destiny
Lead and they will follow you
Your truth will set you free

“Even if you kill me, the kingdom of Daein will be reborn. As long as the prince survives, the people will fight.”
“Hah! The prince! He's a sham, a travesty, a clod of mud no amount of polishing could shine. The real jewel – whose radiance attracts the people like moths to flame – is you, Priestess.”
– Micaiah & Jarod

2. Leave an Open Door – Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers
Sing about the dawn
in the middle of the night
Leave an open door

“Micaiah, you're amazing! I count my blessings to have you as vice-general. You give me hope.”
– Prince Pelleas

3. The Mission – 30 Seconds to Mars
Into the wild
I'm with a mission
Over the hill
Come here with me

“When we were separated during the war, you changed, Sothe. And I changed too. I want to protect Daein more than anything. Our people must be saved, and if I can help in that effort, I will.”
– Micaiah

4. Citizen/Soldier – Three Doors Down
On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here.
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.

“Look at her hair... Could it be the Silver-Haired Maiden? Our country's savior, come to rescue us?”
– Villager

5. Knights of Cydonia – Muse
Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you how God
Falls asleep on the job
And how can we win?
When fools can be Kings

“This fight is my king's will. I cannot stop fighting just because I don't agree with him.”
– Micaiah

6. One of a Kind – Placebo
On top of the world you get nothing done
Talk is cold and burns like the sun
Can’t you see these skies are breaking?

“This Maiden of Dawn is supposed to be the savior of Daein, whose miraculous powers freed their people from tyranny. In other words, her followers are fanatics who see her as a goddess. She will make a formidable enemy.”
– Soren

7. Break Myself – Something Corporate
Well, I'm willing to break myself
To shake this hell from everything I touch
I'm willing to bleed for days my... reds and grays
So you don't hurt so much

“I'd rather be hated and feared like Mad King Ashnard. I'd rather the dark god take my soul. I'm going to save my people, Sothe. If the rest of the world paints me as a beast to be reviled and hated, so be it.”
– Micaiah

8. The Howling – Within Temptation
I hear them getting closer
Their howls are sending chills down my spine
And time is running out now,
They're coming down the hills from behind

When we start killing
It's all coming down right now
From the nightmare we've created
I want to be awakened somehow
(Wanna be awakened right now)

“Our last battle, in the valley. Was that your strategy?”
“That was impressive. You killed thousands of beorc soldiers with your little ambush. Well done.”
– Soren & Micaiah

9. Take a Bow – Muse
Spell, cast a spell,
Cast a spell on the country you run.
And risk, you will risk,
You will risk all their lives and their souls.
And burn, you will burn,
You will burn in hell, yeah you’ll burn in hell.
You’ll burn in hell, yeah you’ll burn in hell for your sins.

“We won't retreat or negotiate. Regardless of what you believe, the only choice we have is to fight.”
“Micaiah, are you insane? Look around! Every single person in your army will die! Do you care that little about them?”
– Micaiah & Ike

10. The Tower – Vienna Teng
She carries the act so convincingly the fact is
Sometimes she believes it
That she can be happy the way things are
Be happy with the things she's done

“There's got to be something we can do! Let us help, please!”
“Why would you want to help us, after everything we've done? No, after everything I've done...”
– Ike & Micaiah

11. Dead Wrong – The Fray
Knew I was dead wrong all along
You said it for my sake
That I would not lose my way
When I was dead wrong all along

“Lady Micaiah... I cannot continue to fight for Daein. It's all gone wrong. I'm here to tell you that... This is good-bye. I must part ways with you.”
– Jill

12. Not Like The Other Girls – The Rasmus
No more blame I am destined to keep you sane
Gotta rescue the flame
Gotta rescue the flame in your heart
No more blood, I will be there for you my love
I will stand by your side
The world has forsaken my girl

She's fading away
Away from this world
Drifting like a feather
She's not like the other girls

“Micaiah, what's going on? I heard that you took ill on the field. Are you all right? What happened?”
“What do you think, genius? Micaiah fainted because you've been pushing her too hard!”
– Pelleas & Sothe

13. The Show Must Go On – Queen
The Show must go on!
Inside my heart is breaking,
My make-up may be flaking,
But my smile, still, stays on!

“Even if it's true, Micaiah, that doesn't mean you have to go to war again. We could leave Daein...”
“But without me, who would hold our forces together? Leaving the army would be the same as abandoning the people of Daein. I won't do it.”
– Sothe & Micaiah

14. Stand in the Rain – Superchick
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down

“We will not lose! We cannot lose! If we lose today, everything Pelleas has done will have been in vain! In the name of King Pelleas, fight for Daein!”
– Micaiah

“Here they come.”
“…It all ends here.”
– Sothe & Micaiah

Bonus Track: My Country – Midnight Oil
Did I hear you say
My country right or wrong

“Listen to yourself! Laguz hunting?! That's just great. We've gone from being freedom fighters to bigots in the blink of an eye. I can't believe you'd go along with such a murderous plan. How do you feel about this, Micaiah? Tell me the truth.”
– Sothe
