Whether she end up being an angel or something more sinister relies entirely in what follows, but for an initial look into this secret place, the ethereal beauty would give anyone pause.

This is the chord used to initiate the Chrono Trigger theme, for point of reference. Once you hear it you'll probably recognize it from some favorite piece of game music.

For those wondering you can recreate it in MIDI with String Ensemble 2, A5/C5/G5. It's a great lead into anything, whether you intend to do long, peaceful note shifts or segue into rock. It's one of the most beautiful, pure sounds I know. Moving the descant down to E5 is an excellent means of adding a little dissonance out of the gate to resolve in your next shift or take even further into darkness. The A/C/G is a blue veiled woman by a forest pool with blue light shining down. Absolutely magic.

I just cackled in joy because there's this one string ensemble intro that seems to get used periodically and I finally isolated it and AFTER ALL THESE YEARS IT'S MINE! I COMMAND ITS POWER and will use it responsibly MUAHAHAHAHA~!

New drug-delivery system disguises chemotherapy drugs as fat, fooling quick-growing and hungry tumor cells that consume the nutrients much faster than normal cells. The drug then activates, suppressing tumor growth. The drug also is lower in toxicity than current drugs, leading to fewer side effects.

My heart aflutter, I ignored the comment and dashed out to the dance floor. Taking advantage of the space around her, I threw myself into the cycle of frantic motions, clearly indicating a familiarity with the dance myself. She smiled broadly at me. She even had fake fangs in.

"Humanity, amirite?" she panted.

"Damn right," I gasped.

We ended the night with a Shepard shuffle - honestly, the most we could manage after all that flailing - and exchanged gamer codes for multiple platforms.

"Wow check HER out! What is she DOING?" one of my friends exclaimed, gawping towards the dance floor.

I glanced over, easily spotting the woman they were referring to. I couldn't take my eyes off of her, nor off of her frantic dance motions, which were causing several people to give her a wide and cautious berth. I gasped audibly.

"I know, right? What a weirdo," another friend said, mistaking my expression for mutual bemusement.
