Inspired partially from a song in Wicked, Defying Gravity. Kisho Kobayashi was destined for a life of silent servitude under the thumb of his controlling grandmother, until a telepathic glimpse of her mind revealed what a monster she truly was. Fleeing from her the only way he could, Kisho lept from the balcony of their penthouse and trusted in his instincts for the first time... Since that time, he's fled to America to escape her, become a superhero with a far too bold personality, nearly died (twice), made telepathic contact with the god of nightmares and been publically outed as both a superhero and a gay male, losing his secret identity completely, which promted him to leave his teammates, and is sending him spiraling ever more into less hero, more vigilante or even villain, with strong hints of a Dark Phoenix-like persona surfacing inside him in times of extreme stress...The song that inspired it?Something has changed within me...Something is not the same. I'm through with playing by the rulesOf someone else's game!Too late for second guessingToo late to go back to sleepIt's time to trust my instincts, close my eyes...And leap...It's time to try defying gravityI think I'll try defying gravityAnd you can't pull me down!I'm through accepting limits'Cause someone says they're so!Some things I cannot changeBut til I try I'll never know!Too long, I've been afraid ofLosing love I guess I lost!Well if that's loveIt comes at MUCH too high a cost!I'd sooner buy defying gravityKiss me goodbyeI'm defying gravityAnd you can't pull me down!So if you care to find me!Look to the western skyAs someone told me latelyEveryone deserves the chance to fly!And if I'm flying soloAt least I'm flying freeTo those who'd ground me?Take a message back from me:Tell them how I am defying gravityI'm flying highDefying GravityAnd soon I'll match them in reknownAnd nobody is ever gonna bring me down!
