can't buy me love - bancoran x reno
Back on GreatestJournal, I was involved in a roleplay by the name of Port Gaza where I choose to play the character Reno from the popular Final Fantasy series. I decided a male prostitute, however cliché, was the perfect role for him. The roleplay started off very well, fun, however I, as the mun, made a few mistakes, thus the RP began to loose everything I ever thought it was. However, one character, rather one person brought the roleplay back to love for me and her name is ada, whom played a handsome character by the name of Bancoran. A romance blossomed between the two, as fragile and mysterious as it was, and the pairing became second nature to me. ♥ The threads between ada and myself became the only fond memories of the roleplay that I had...so, in making this very short and choppy EP, I include all of the memories of that roleplay and, in turn...ada, I dedicate this to you. I'm sorry it's not as wonderful as the BancoranxReno we knew, but hey...worth a shot, right? ♥ I hope you enjoy it~!
Fanmix Title: can't buy me love
Fandom: Patalliro! & Final Fantasy VII
Character (s): Bancoran x Reno
1. Love Hurts © Nazareth
Love hurts, love scars,
Love wounds, and marks,
Any heart, not tough,
Or strong, enough
To take a lot of pain
Enter Reno, a young prostitute on the streets of Port Gaza. He'd sleep with anyone willing to spare the money or the time. He'd been hurt quite a bit, both physically and mentally, so the word love meant nothing to him. He was easy to fall into it, rather fall into lust, however the confusion in his heart would cause him to believe such a thing as that, a thing as love. He sold his body and in that business, there was so such thing as love.
2. Holding Out For A Hero © Frou Frou
Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need
The redhead had been living this life for longer then he cared to remember, his body belonging to every male who had ever tasted his flesh. He would dream in his quiet time about someone who would take him away from this life of servitude to the sex hungry civilians of the port and from his own demons. It seemed just in time a suave, handsome male entered the scene, entered his life...a man by the name of Jack Barbarossa Bancoran, or more simply, Bancoran. His dark eyes held no malice, no want for a favor in the form of his shirtless body...perhaps his hero had arrived?
3. Can't Buy Me Love © Michael Buble
I'll give you all I've got to give, if you say you love me too
I may not have a lot to give, but what I got I'll give to you
I don't care too much for money
Money can't buy me love
Despite being paid for his acts of love from all those around him...he felt different when it came to this handsome gentleman. Nothing would please him more then for this to be the one that he would fall in love with and the one that would actually love him back. He wanted nothing, no money, no rewards..only the knowledge that his company was wanted for more then intimacy at the price of a pretty penny.
4. I Think I'm In Love © Lea Salonga
Is this love
Feeling restless inside
To always be my side
I dont even want you out of my side
You are in my thoughts all day and night
I cant get you out of my mind
I think Im in love
The more time he spent with Bancoran, the more he began to see that his existence was more then the past years of his life, more then useless lovemaking. Reno felt short of breathe, his heart beating in his throat. He longed to turn around, face the world with the knowledge, embrace the fact that he felt love and he knew the one whom he loved was Bancoran...he thought perhaps he would be the one to break the chain of lust vs love and allow love to be victorious.
5. I Want You To Want Me © Cheap Trick
I want you to want me.
I need you to need me.
I'd love you to love me.
I'll shine up the old brown shoes, put on a brand-new shirt.
I'll get home early from work if you say that you love me
Reno'd change his life, renounce his ways and become an honest man if it meant a simple smile or word of acceptance from the elegant man. Sleeping around and the money it got him meant nothing if he couldn't look up into Bancoran's eyes and relinquish his mind, body and soul. In his own way, this man was his Happily Ever After.
