Splitting Headache--The Final Confrontation part I new [re: Kristin Machina]  

"You want me, Duke?" Aladdin whips back his multi-colored cape back, "come and get me!"

Bowie takes Aladdin by the hand, "Easy, Lad."

The Duke wags his finger, "Ah, no, no, no my little genie. You're still too strong for me to kill. Otherwise, I would have drank your blood before I killed the others. I need their energies just so I, alone will stand as the ultimate ego."

"You're making no sense, Duke." Aladdin shakes his head. "What are you going to do now?"

The Duke grabs Iman and pulls her by the wrists off the floor, "I am going to destroy Bowie's last source of happiness--the last obstacle to true miserable brilliance!" Suddenly, three extra pairs of arms sprout from the Duke, like a black widow spider. The arms pull Iman, struggling for dear life, towards the Duke, as the wizard bares his ivory white fangs.

David screams: "IMAN!!"

Aladdin starts to hurl a thunderbolt, "Let her go!!"

Behind Lexie looms a dark glass spider, fangs ready to snap her little neck.

The Duke booms, "Strike at me, genie and the little girl dies!!"

Aladdin's knees buckle under him in fatigue and confusion. Then, he notices that in the hand that David held him by, is a piece of paper. Aladdin unfurls it and reads...

The Duke: "What is that? Give it to me!!"

The paper incinerates in Aladdin's hand. Aladdin glares back defiantly.

The Duke: "Fine, you stubborn idiot! Goodbye!" The Duke lunges for Iman's throat and she starts to scream...

"Nothing remains..."

A voice is heard singing.

"We could run when the rain slows..."

But it's not the Duke singing...

"Look for the cars or signs of life
Where the heat goes...
"

Nor is it Aladdin Sane's.

"Look for the drifters
We should crawl under the bracken...


It is David Bowie's voice. The real David Bowie.

"Look for the shafts of light
On the road where the heat goes...
Everything has changed....


The Duke whispers, "No..."

David sings in a clear, powerful voice:
"For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing
And nothing has changed
Everything has changed...
"

The glass spider behind Lexie shattered, the babe utterly unharmed.

"For in truth, it's the beginning of an end..."

Aladdin's mottled form shimmers and separates into several persona

"And nothing has changed..."

The ghostly forms of the fallen Bowies encircle the room...
"Everything has changed..."

Bowie sings:
"In your fear
Of what we have become...


Aladdin and the ghost chant in unison with Bowie's voice:
"In your fear
Seek only peace...
"

Bowie sings:
"Take to the fire
Now we must burn
"

Aladdin and the ghosts:
"In your fear
Seek only love
"

The Duke shakes in terror, "No, STOP IT!!" He drops Iman as she slides away.

Bowie advances to the Duke:
"All that we are..."

Aladdin and the ghosts:
"In your fear
Seek only peace"


Bowie raises his hands: "Rise together"

The ghost chant:
"In your fear
Seek only love
"

Bowie: "Through these clouds..."

The clouds outside the Cloister begin to dispurse...

Aladdin and the Ghosts: "In your fear..In your fear..."

Bowie, the ghost and Aladdin unite: "As on wings..."

The Duke screams, "THIS IS UTTERLY IMPOSSIBLE!!! HOW COULD YOU!!!!????"

Bowie stands over the Duke, like the victor over the vanquished,"This is the trip
And this is the business we take
This is our number
All my trials
Lord, will be remembered...
"

Bowie flings the Gitanes in the Dukes face...

"Everything has changed.....!! On the last word, Bowie's voice soars mightily into a note a smoker would be hard to perform.

The Duke, losing all dignity, lunges at his own body in animal rage, "I'LL KILL YOU!! I'll FUCKING KILL YOU!!"

Aladdin pulls him off David and flings the Duke into the wall of ghost, who send him bouncing back to the center of the ring. Aladdin hoists the Duke by the lapels, "You lose. The body can survive without cigarettes, and write, and sing! So just give up!"

The Duke was beyond reasoning, and smacked Aladdin full in the face..."I may not kill the body, or his family, but I'll still destroy you!!"

To be continued...

Don't understand me, just love me

Splitting Headache--The Final Confrontation II new [re: Kristin Machina]  

Aladdin's arm turns into gold, like Zero's and whacks the Duke clear across his face. The Duke is sent flying back.

"Master, get clear!" Aladdin calls out as David runs to his family's side, outside the circle of ghosts.

The Thin White Duke bares his fangs, bloodied by the blow, as he prepares to toss a handful of magic darts. He flings them, but Aladdin sprouts a pair of Zero's wings and blocks the darts.

The Duke absorbed Zero's powers as well--he spins several strands of glassy web, and winds them around Aladdin. Aladdin is dragged down, and dragged across the floor by the hungry, enraged Duke. As the Duke looms over Aladdin like a black widow spider, Aladdin generates a ball of lightning and conducts it down the webbing. The Duke is electrocuted, and begins to burn. Rather than let go, the Duke suddenly ignites.

David and Iman look on in terror. Lexie simple clinged to her mom.

Aladdin broke free of his bonds and looked at the burning Duke. But the Duke wasn't dead--he transformed into Earthling--on fire!! He hurls a spiral of flames at Aladdin opens the floor beneath him in pool of quicksand. The Genie sinks beneath, as the surface turns into glass.

The Duke bellows out, "Come out!!" In Earthling fashion, he shakes the floor, the room quaking, the stones splitting open.

The circle of ghosts prevent the chaos from spreading further, protecting the humans outside.

Underneath the Duke, the floor explodes as Aladdin tunneled below, swimming the underground river of quicksand. The genie emerges--a metal giant, marked 'Tin Machine VI'. The goliath scooped up the Duke and lifted him high. The machine began to bend the Duke in half, as he cried out in agony.

"Surrender, Duke," Aladdin called from inside, "I can't kill you, but Ziggy help me if you ever try to hurt anyone else, the body or the family, ever again...!!"

The Duke tried what he did to Tin Machine at the TVC15 station--send a bolt of lightning to obliterate the machine.

Except the machine was not grounded. Rocket boosters made the machine hover over the ground.

The Duke's threshhold for pain was exceeded, "I...SURRENDER!!" Aladdin dropped the Duke onto the ground, the sorceror-vampire writhing. Aladdin shifted back to normal shape, and drew a Bowie knife. All the genie had to do was join his blood with the Duke's to take his power, and everything would be restored. Aladdin took the Duke's limp arm and started to make a slice into his palm...

The Duke's palm turned into a dog's paw and it swiped Aladdin's knife out of his hand. The Duke's hound-like jaws then locked into the startled Aladdin's neck.

"You are SO gullible!" the Duke muttered as he began to sink his teeth into Aladdin's jugular. But instead of blood, the Duke tasted...

"ACK!! What is that awful green fluid!!" the Duke spat out the alcohol-tasting liquid out of his mouth in disgust.

Aladdin had turned into Baby Grace Blue, "It's what Grace had been pumped full with after she had been killed, "Aladdin said in Jareth's voice. You didn't get near her vein--her body tissues are saturated with it. Without my magic, she wouldn't even live."

Enraged, the Duke also transformed into another Outside character--the Artist Minotaur! The Duke charged Aladdin and gored him with his razor sharp horns. Aladdin's stitched-up inner organs began to spill out, as he flew over the Duke's head and landed on the floor behind him.

In a desperate attempt to save himself, Aladdin's organs turn to wire, as he assumes the form of Boz, another dead man transformed. He quickly retracts the wire into himself, but the Duke-as-minotaur tries to rip him apart once again with his horns.

"David," Iman says, "we have to do something! They're going to kill each other!"

"But what?" David asks.

Iman points to the Duke's throne.

Back inside the circle, Aladdin-as-Boz is getting beaten badly. Aladdin takes a risk--he turns back into Grace, curls his/her fist and throws a fistful of moondust into the Duke's bull-eyes. The dust stings and burns and the bull howls in pain.

Aladdin is exhausted--the Duke is showing signs of tiring as well. The minotaur charges again, but blinded, he runs into the wall of ghosts...

Aladdin shifts again, "Ricochet!" Not the Let's Dance-persona--he casts a spell to send to minotaur bouncing around the ring like a pinball. The blond genie dodges the bouncing bull as spins around the room.

Iman and David open the lid of the throne, and pull out a mummified form.

By accident, the flying minotaur slams into Aladdin and the two roll around the floor, into the edge of the circle closest to the throne. The Duke landed on top--Aladdin was knocked unconscious.

Confident in his victory, the Duke pinned Aladdin's hands over his head as he stradled his lithe body, "Stupid, stupid little Ziggy clone!" The Duke panted heavily, "Your blood...will taste even sweeter...now that I've beaten the pulp out of you.."

A hand peaked in between the legs of the ghosts legs and grabbed Aladdin's hand. Sharp, bony fingernails punctured Aladdin's tender skin and dug into his palm.

"What is this???" The Duke gasped, as he tried to pound away the mummy's hand. Under the Duke's fist, the mummy turned into dust and blew away.

Aladdin's red eyes flew open and he smiled up at the Duke, fangs bared, "NOW we're even!"

The Duke gasped, "Blaylock? NO!!" The Duke tries to bite into Aladdin's neck again, but Aladdin's blood won't flow. The now mummified genie turns into a cloud of dust and drifts out and under the Duke. Aladdin rematerializes, "We're too evenly matched. Give up. The master is free and writing and singing again. You've nothing to gain."

The Duke wearily charges Aladdin, feebly pounding his bony chest, "I'll kill you, I'll kill you..."

Aladdin shook his head, "You can't kill me. You can cut me, disembowl me, shoot me, but I will never die. Ziggy is not dead--he lives in us."

The Duke, in despair, collapses in Aladdin's arms, "I'll kill you..."

Aladdin: "You're not even listening, you stubborn ass. OK, if you're so stubborn, go ahead. Bite me."

The Duke snapped up: "What??"

Aladdin: "You heard me. Drink me."

The Duke couldn't believe his ears, but..."I knew...you would realize...you cannot win against me. Acknowleging...your defeat..is very mature of you..." Aladdin pulled the Duke up to his neck as...

David, "Aladdin Sane, what the hell are you doing???"

Aladdin winks. The Duke sinks his teeth into Aladdin's jugular, but Aladdin grabs the Duke's bloody hand into his. An equal, two-way transfer of power begins, as the two forms melt into each other. A bright light fills the room and blinds the Bowie family, until, in the middle of the room...

To be continue...

Don't understand me, just love me

Splitting Headache--Ziggy Stardust new [re: Kristin Machina]  

In the middle of the room stood a creature of unearthly beauty.

A creature of regal elegance yet exuded a divine warmth.

A creature with wild, brilliant red hair and moonlight pale skin, clothed in gossamer white robes, falling barely half-way to its knees. White thigh-high boots cover its legs, while billowing sleeves slit from wrist to shoulder drape its arms.

Its eyes sparkle with starlight. Its golden circle glows on its forehead. Its bright red lips smile serenely.

David, Iman and Lexie can only gaze in wonder.

David cleared his throat, "Ziggy Stardust, I presume?"

Ziggy nodded, "I apologize for what my children have put your family through."

Iman's wonder wore off and quickly turned to anger, "Your 'children' tried to kill us!! How could such evil exist in such a good man??"

Ziggy bowed its head, lowering its eyes in apologetic sadness, "Evil exists in all human beings. All have the capacity to do terrible things--it is only the goodness in humans that keeps it in check."

David looks at Iman. Iman looks back, but with a good measure of fear and confusion. She clutches to Lexie.

Ziggy continues, "Even though it appeared that I 'died' almost three decades ago, I have always been aware of what went on within David's mind. Immediately after my 'death', a void appeared--a void the Thin White Duke tried to fill with greed, power and drugs. The void was created by lonliness..."

Ziggy carefully approached Iman, who tried to back away from the creature, "...but when you came into David's life, Iman, the void quickly dissapeared. A new energy--love--filled the void, and revitalized the body, and the mind. The Duke lied, David," Ziggy turns to David, "cigarettes don't fuel your creativity. Your creativity has always existed, right from the moment you were born. Whether you are conscious of it or not, it is the world and the people around you who inspire you. You are a chameleon, as they say."

David looks at the sweat-soaked piece of paper, still legible, containing the 'song,' "I was so afraid. I didn't know what else to do. I just started writing..."

Ziggy: "...and in doing so, you took away the Duke's power. It's one thing to be afraid, but you didn't give in."

David approaches Ziggy, staring intently at its face: "I can't believe I created you! All of you! This is just unbelievable!"

Ziggy blushes, "I caused quite a bit of trouble for you all those years ago. That's why I went away--to give away my energy to let other ideas grow."

David frowns, "But what happens now? I still can't remember anything. I'll have to start from scratch..."

Ziggy shook its head, "Not so. I will return to Suffragette City, and I'll take my children," points to its chest, "with me."

Iman interrupted, "Wait, if you go back, how do we know the Duke won't try to take over again? How do I know he won't hurt us again?"

Ziggy: "All the energies of the 'Bowies' are within me. When I return, I shall redistribute their energies, restoring the balance between Aladdin Sane and the Thin White Duke, and all the other personae. This episode will never happen again..."

Ziggy clasped David's face in his hands, "...and this will all seem like a bad dream..."

Iman: "Wait!"

Ziggy began to look annoyed, "What now?"

Iman: "How can you be so certain?"

Ziggy let go of David for a moment and looked into Iman's eyes, "Because he loves you and Lexie more than life itself. That power can defeat even the strongest of evils."

It's David's turn to blush.

Ziggy: "My children are telling me in my head, that when the body thinks of you, the sky shines brighter than daylight, and rose petals fall like rain, and the monkeybirds fly free across the sky..."

Iman: "O-kaaay...I guess I'll never fully understand what goes on in my darling's head, but that's why I love him." David takes Iman's hand in his.

Lexie gurgles and smiles.

Ziggy pets Lexie lightly on the head, "Take good care of Alexandria. The mind has certainly become a happier place because of her."

Iman, "David, do you mind...?"

David, "Mind what, darling?"

Iman takes Ziggy by the chin and gives him a peck on the lips.

Ziggy, "Oh my!"

Iman blushes, "I always wanted to do that."

Ziggy spins around to David, "Alright, master, your turn!"

David, "You mean...?"

Ziggy, "Mmm-hmm, pucker up, we're going home."

David, "Is this the only way?"

Ziggy cocked a non-existent eyebrow, "I could always try the back entrance..."

David, "THISWAYISFINETHANKYOU!!"

Ziggy laughs hard, with a musical melody.

Iman cups Lexie's ears, "Pay no attention to the dirty alien rock star."

Gently, Ziggy clasps David's head in its hands and plants a kiss. Bright light once again fills the room...

Outside the Cloisters...

"I can't wait any longer!!" Duncan get impatient, "I'm going in!" Despite the police's protest, Duncan charges through the gates, which now easily swing open. Duncan runs inside...

One of the officers sighs, "Bowie's got one crazy family..."

Another officer, "Look!" The dark clouds disperse and snow sprinkles to the ground.

Officer #1: "Snow? In August?"

Officer #2: "Hey? Do you smell peaches?"

Officer #1: "Kinda? Um, what are we all doing here?"

Office r#2: "I forgot. This is bad."

Suddenly, everyone at the scene forgot why they were at the Cloisters. The crowd outside slowly turned around and left. The snow continued to cover the entire island of Manhattan...

Inside...

The light blinds Duncan temporarily, but as soon as it fades...

"Dad?" Duncan finds David, Iman and Lexie in the garden.

David smiled at his son, "Will you stay in our lover's story..."

Duncan: "HEY!! You got your memory back!! But where's everyone else?"

David, "Who? Iman and Lexie are right here."

Duncan, "No I mean...eh? Darn it, I thought there were other people here, but I can't remember..."

Iman, "Why ARE we here? I though you were shooting the video at the Village, David?"

David shrugged, "I don't see the crew around...oh blast it all! This whole week's been one great big blur what with my headaches and all. Let's just go home."

As the four take to the city, Iman asks, "How is your head, by the way?"

David smiles, "Never better!"

Duncan, "Hey Dad, what's in your hand?"

David, "Oh...lyrics? Lucky I can still read them...I feel like I sweated five pounds off. What's today, anyway."

Duncan and Iman, "Sunday."

David nods, "...Sunday..."
***************************************************************************
Back in Suffragette City...

Ziggy Stardust walks through an empty city...

Through the Town Square...

Past the deli and beauty shop...

Past the Moonage Daydream tavern...

Past Celliers' and Nathan's offices...

Up the stairs to the Duke's castle...

Ziggy stops at the Duke's empty throne and with a wave of his hand, separates the Duke from his being. The dejected Thin White Duke plops like a rag doll onto his throne.

The Duke says, in his weary voice, "Why don't you just destroy me? I have nothing to live for."

Ziggy shook his head, "I can't be rid of you, although every remaining fiber of my being wants to be. We can't have good without evil, and besides, 'Station to Station' is a great album."

Ziggy stands over the Duke, as the thin wizard curls like a fetus into his throne in terror, "But be warned, Thin White Duke. Whether you know it or not, I am always watching. The body will have many album's worth of inspiration, without the cigarettes, and nothing, not even YOU can stop it. Because we will no longer tolerate your tantrums any longer!"

Ziggy turns on its tall heels and, in a cloud of stardust, disappears into the sky. The Duke, enrages, tries to conjure a lightning storm. He barely gets a spark. Horrified and defeated, The Duke curls back into his throne and weeps pitifully....

To be concluded!

Don't understand me, just love me
