Rogue Demon Hunter - I'll Make a Fan Out of You
1,015 plays

This is the audio track I built for our SDCC 2014 Masquerade entry entitled “Be a Fan.” A few members of our group sang their character parts, my wife and I recorded the rest of the solo parts, along with the chorus, and I layered multiple versions of all our singers for the different chorus bits to fill out the sound depth. All of it is layered over a karaoke track of “I’ll Make a Man Out of You” from the film Mulan.

Here are the opening dialogue lines and subsequent lyrics:

FANBOY:
Man, I can’t believe I got dragged to this nerdfest! If I ever find those guys, I’ll make them pay for ditching—-

(bumps into MAL COSPLAYER)

MALCOLM REYNOLDS:
Oh, pardon.

FANBOY:
What are you supposed to be, some kind of…space cowboy?

MAL:
Malcolm Reynolds. (beat) Firefly? (waits for reaction) You HAVE seen the show, right?

FANBOY:
I haven’t seen ANY of this stuff. Why would I?

(music starts)

MAL:
Let’s get down to business
I tell you no lie
No show past or present
Can beat Fi-refly

Take a cowboy trip into the black
And you can bet before we’re through
Mister, I’ll make a fan
Out of you.

GALADRIEL:
Toss the Ring in Mordor
To the fires within.
Elves and dwarves will aid you
So we’re sure to win.

DOCTOR:
If you need help—any time or place—
You can call the Doctor.

FANBOY:
Who?

DOCTOR:
Come now, I’ll make a fan
Out of you.

TOPH:
Watch Aang become the Avatar
Water and Earth and Fire
Bending air that Twinkle Toes can really fly

HERMIONE:
Come live at a Wizard school
Learning spells with Harry Potter

DANERYS:
When you play the Game of Thrones you win or die…

ALL:
BE A FAN
You must be swift as the League of Justice
BE A FAN
Keep Battlestar on its Earth-bound course
BE A FAN
Obey the heart of the Prime Directive
Mysterious as the Dark Side of the Force

BE A FAN
You must be swift as the League of Justice
BE A FAN
Keep Battlestar on its Earth-bound course
BE A FAN
Obey the heart of the Prime Directive
Mysterious as the Dark Side of the Force
Hoo-ah!
