Disclaimer: I don't own Digimon or its characters. I also don't own the Prozzšk's music, it belongs to two singing cartoon characters.
Author's Notes: Okay, and vidfic! I guess ever since I got my new Prozzšk CD, I just can't get the ideas outta my head. Some background info, this starts off as Sorato, then it progresses into Taiora and Mimato. Mimi is accompanying Matt on his band's tour of the U.S.A., leaving Sora, Tai, and the other Digidestined back in Japan. But the other Digidestined won't be featured, just these four.
Lonely American Nights
[A computer screen flickers to life. A female computer voice starts to talk.]
Female Computer Voice: A dream that's old. A song that's new. Money borrowed, guitar blue. *guitar strum* True love tries, *guitar strum* but has to fail... *guitar strum* When distance, time, and space prevail.
[A hip-hop beat starts up. Zoom out to show that it is one of the school computers, with Sora behind it.]
Sora: Hey! An e-mail from Matt! I wonder how he's doing.
[She moves the mouse around and clicks on something. As Sora is intently reading the e-mail, the scene fades away to show Matt sitting on a couch. He has an open picture album in his lap. Fade out even more to show that in the room is Matt's band mates with the equipment set up.]
[A quick close up of Matt is shown, and then the view is switched so that we can see what's inside the album. With each part of the lyrics, pan around to show each of the following:]
Matt: I can still see the clothes we wore, and the bar next door, and the dirty floor...
[A picture of the Digidestined in front of Digitamamon's restaurant, but with Matt and Sora, with his arm draped over her should, at the front of group.]
Matt: And the day we left home for a rock and roll tour of America!
[Move to another picture of Matt and Sora kissing at an airport terminal.]
Matt: There was Milo and me it's true, and the songs we knew, and picture of you, and a beat up van with a guitar in my hand so I could work it through!
[Another picture is shown with Matt and the guys in the band with their instruments. Beside that one is a lone shot of Sora. Move to show another picture of a melancholy Matt lying down in the back of a van with a blue guitar in his hands.]
Matt: Lonely American nights... can make you hungry for the arms of someone new.
[Back up to reveal a full view of Matt on the couch. Mimi then sits down beside him. Close up as she hugs him and then kisses his cheek.]
Matt: But put me under the lights, I'd never jeopardize the trust I had with you.
[Zoom out to show Mimi still kissing Matt's cheek, but they're standing on-stage during a concert. Bright multi-coloured lights are flashing around them.]
Matt: And I hope you found yourself another lover with a heart that's true. Someone to say to you-
[Switch scene to Sora in her bedroom. She looks like she's been crying, but Tai comes behind her, wraps his arms around her shoulders, and whispers in her ear.]
Tai: Hold tight, shine bright, tonight I'll be coming right home to you. Day light, stay bright. It's alright, I'll be makin' it home to you.
[Quick pan around of the camera back to Matt. This time, he's in a bus, and he looks like he's asleep. Close up of his face as it blurs into a dream sequence/flashback.]
Matt: We used to pray for the end of school, for our favourite tune, up in my bedroom. Where I would wait for you baby in the parking lot to get you in the afternoon.
[Matt is waiting in the parking lot outside of Odaiba high school. Sora walks up to him with a wave and they hop into the car, singing along with the radio.]
Matt: Do you remember the way we talked when I dropped you off 'till the sun came up. When I awoke to find you sleeping at the opposite end of the telephone?
[Close-up of Sora as she's singing, then zoom out to show her still moving her mouth, but she's at home and on the telephone. Move the view into the window, showing that it's night-time. Time elapses, and sunlight is now filtering through the window. Zoom out to show that Sora is asleep, with the receiver to her ear. Matt then comes in and starts to gently shake her to wake her up.]
Matt: But everything has a price. Ambition ordered me to do what I must do. Another love sacrificed. Another offer to the gods of losing you.
[The scene of Matt shaking Sora is blurred back into reality to show Matt being gently shaken by Mimi. Turn to Matt's point of view. He sees Mimi, but an image of Sora is super-imposed on it. Then, the image disappears.]
[Flashback again to Matt with an awake Sora in his arms. He's stroking her hair and whispering to her.]
Matt: And I hope you realize my heart will hold a place for you. When I used to say to you: hold tight, shine bright, tonight I'll be coming right home to you. Day light, stay bright. It's alright, I'll be makin' it home to you.
[The flashback starts to blur again, but is suddenly moved to the present with a jerk.]
Matt: And where you, baby, when the wheels on my bus broke down? And where was I darlin' when you needed me to be around. And I suppose I'll never find another lover with a heart so true. Someone to say to you:
[External view of the bus as Matt hops out and kicks at the wheels in exasperation. He's clutching his head in frustration. Mimi comes out and hugs him. Super-impose an image of Sora in Tai's arms. As the music softens, the two images split to form two scenes working at once with the pastel colours and bubbles background.]
Mimi and Tai: Hold tight. Tonight. *take a breath* Day light. *sigh* If it's alright.
[Sora and Matt smile and start to hug back their newfound lovers.]
Matt and Mimi; Sora and Tai: Hold tight, shine bright, tonight I'll be coming right home to you. Day light, stay bright. It's alright, I'll be makin' it home to you.
[Move the scene to Tai and Sora as they part the embrace. The backgrounds fades to show that they're in a park. Sora and Tai hold hands and start to walk off.]
Hold tight, shine bright, tonight I'll be coming right home to you.
[Switch scene back to Matt and Mimi as they enter the bus and it starts to drive off into the sunset as the music fades.]
I can still see the clothes we wore, and the bar next door, and the dirty floor... And the day we left home for a rock and roll tour of America! There was Milo and me it's true, and the songs we knew, and picture of you...
Additional Author's Notes: I dedicate this vidfic to my good friend, Mercurius! Since he was the one that started the Prozzšk vidfics with their new CD.
