The Last Clydesdales - Archie Fisher (Song)

Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-iJB9HtlGQ

Actual history or made-up or an imagined setting, actual horses or horse-like creatures or mechanical or aliens! Or kelpies.

Life's Flame - Heather Alexander (Song)

Music and lyrics: https://heatheralexander.bandcamp.com/track/lifes-flame-2

Exploring the story or taking it as metaphor or retelling.

Lullaby for a Stormy Night - Vienna Teng (Song)

Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCktyjCosHE

I first met this song in a Star Trek: The Next Generation vid, so in my head it's associated with families and children who are cared about in space, many of them aliens. I'd like to read or see anything about family or friendships, but prefer not romantic relationships.

Nobody's Side - Björn Ulvaeus / Benny Andersson / Tim Rice (Song)

Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wscnP0Sb-Us

I'd love to see this in a dystopia or other constrained society or community.

This Time Tomorrow - The Kinks (Song)

Music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwVJ7FWc4rQ

Something about journeys, actual or metaphorical, likely or unlikely, magical or mundane or in space! Or a stage or place on such a journey. I'm always open to past or present tense, but this could be future tense if you wanted to.

Stylistic things

I like worldbuilding, and all sorts of character relationships (families and networks of many, many kinds). At this time I'm less interested in reading about romantic relationships or the sundering thereof. I'm always happy to read about animal or otherwise nonhuman characters. I prefer reading stories where alternate universes and strange concepts take themselves seriously (as opposed to surrealism or meta humour). I'm comfortable with past or present tense, third, first, or even second person.

Do not want: I know not using capital letters to start names or sentences can be a stylistic choice, as can not putting quotation marks around dialogue, but I can't read a story without those markers.
