Songfic: When Doves Cry
By Dyana Lee Chaplik

 

When Doves Cry
by Dyanalee
May 1998


Songfic, lyrics by Prince(or whatever he is now)


 How can you just leave me standing

Quatre is watching the other pilots arguing, a forlorn look on his face as they clearly get disgusted with each other and all stalk off

Alone in a world that's so cold?

You see a burning gundam on the ground in an arctic region, Quatre is slowly making his way away from it, arms wrapped around his chest tightly, shivering.  His bright blue eyes stand out in his cold pale face, hopefully searching the empty skies.

Maybe I'm just to demanding(maybe I'm just like my father)

Quatre remembers gathering the other pilots after the fight, trying his best to convince them to make up and work it out.  Heero and Wufie glare at him furiously, Duo and Trowa just ignore him.  His face turns worried as he wonders if maybe they have had enough of him, and will not come after all.

Maybe I'm just like my father,too bold(Ya know he's too bold)

Quatre's thoughts go further back to the day he told his father that he was going to pilot the Gundam and fight so that people could be free, and he wonders if maybe his father was right, he's not cut out for this.

Maybe you're just like my mother, she's never satisfied

Quatre's face hardens slightly as he considers his mother's sacrifice to give him life, and his faltering steps in the snows gain strength.

So why do we scream at each other?

Quatre at a table looking mildly disgusted at the others scream at each other over his head.

This is what is sounds likewhen doves cry

Quatre dressed in a flowing white robe, holding a huge grey dove agains his chest, tears trickling down his face as he tries to comfort the struggling bird.

When doves cry, (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry  (Doves cry, doves cry)

Quatre loses his grip on the bird, and it flies up above him, slowly changing into Wing Zero

When doves cry
When doves cry
When doves cry

Quatre turns away from the looming mecha and turns to a cage with four more grey doves, and he flings it open, cutting his hand as he pulls the door open.  bright drops of blood mar the birds smooth grey feathers, then sink into them and the birds turn into the other pilots with grey wings.

Don't Cry
When doves cry

They immediately look like they are going to fly away, then slowly turn and watch as Quatre falls to his knees, wingless and alone, burying his face into his hands to hide the tears.  One by one, they slowly land on the balcony and reach for him.  He looks up at them hopefully.

When doves cry
Don't cry
Darling, Don't cry...

The beautiful balcony scene dissolves into the frozen waste, with Quatre laying face up in the snows, his eyes closed, tears frozen to his face.  A shadow looms over him, and the other pilots come into view, Heero gently lifting the boy and carrying him away to Wing Zero, the others trailing after.
