“Underneath The Radar”

Unknown, unseen
We live underneath the radar
No sign on screen
We dance underneath the radar

Between the walls, well hey
We’re just too small to make a fuss about it
Did something fall? Well, hey
What is the point in losin’ sleep about it?

See ya later, see ya later
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
See ya later, call me

We dance underneath the radar
We live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There’s no way that you’re ever gonna get far

We kiss underneath the search lights
And we live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There’s no way that you’re ever gonna get far
(So get hip)

We speak, unheard
Like ants we dance between the towers
We sleep, they move
Come sailin’ over the horizon

Between the walls, well hey
We’re just too small to make a fuss about it
Did something fall? Well, hey
What is the point in losin’ sleep about it?

See ya later, see ya later
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
See ya later, call me

We dance underneath the radar
We live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There’s no way that you’re ever gonna get far

We kiss underneath the search lights
And we live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There’s no way that you’re ever gonna get far
(So get hip)

He says I am the doctor in a B-52
I come across the horizon
Drop my love on you
I’m gonna woo ya all, watch out
I’m gonna woo ya all, see ya later

See ya later, see ya later
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
Hip-a-no-no-no-no
See ya later, call me

Between the walls, well hey
We’re just too small to make a fuss about it
Did something fall? Well, hey
What is the point in losin’ sleep about it?

We dance underneath the radar
We live underneath the bomb
When you live underneath the radar
There’s no way that you’re ever gonna get far, so get hip

RPC – Sammy Logan : Seeking Echos.

Roleplay Character Sheet.

 

Name:Sammy Logan
Age: 15
Species: Human
Element: Wind/Air
Signatures: Aero-Telekinesis, Air Manipulation
Other Techniques: Enhanced Speed; due to using by reducing air resistance and utilizing pressurized air for propulsion.

Personality: Something of a loner, Sammy or “Sam” to those that she allows to get close to her, is a model student, who can usually be found out on the grounds as opposed to being cooped up in the library or dorm. Her affinity with the outdoors is due to when she came to understand and accept her ability or talent with the element of air. Sam is not the kind of girl to be the centre of attention, and keeps her thoughts to herself if there is a conversation going on. You could say that she has yet to find a kindred spirit amongst her peers. Sammy has trust issues that stem from her younger years, though if one were to break through, she would be a loyal and good friend.

Strengths:Her abilities to harness the weather by her use of controlling oxygen and nitrogen that is forced together by the earth’s own gravity, makes her a worthy and somewhat destructive opponent in any battle. Her understanding of her environment and the spot on timing of when the air density changes; allow her to maximize her power.

Weaknesses:Sammy is weakened by those that use the fire ability as it draws the oxygen from her environment. Those that use electricity against her can alter the molecules in the air with electrons, thus overwhelming her.
Appearance:

History: A girl with a mysterious past, who had changed schools many times in her youth. Few ever got to see the real Sammy, for she kept that hidden behind a nerdy facade. Her winter white hair was usually kept up in a tight ponytail that drew her hair back so tight that it made her look severe. With large black rimmed glasses, and wearing clothes that were often two sizes too big, she tried to be invisible to others and would often duck away outside with her favourite novel to a place out on the grounds where few would go. Preferring ravens as company than people, when she was hidden from view, she would release her hair from its confines and use her powers in secret – the only tell tale sign was when the leaves from the very trees above her were whipped up into great clouds before settling down to fall over her in a magical spectacle. The only time she smiled.
