Day 69 - Vikings! - 3/10/2015

Today's Thing-a-Day Thing is the last scene of a movie. It's a scene that has been bouncing around in my head, with no other scenes of the movie, for a long time.

Here goes!

(Scene opens on a Viking Ship.)

(It is in a dry waterbed).

(Shot tightens onto the boat and Asger Sjoberg, the Viking leader.)

(He looks out at the dry waterbed with a hard look that conveys loss, regret, and sadness. At least, as much of those things as a bad-assed Viking's face can convey. He betrays the emotions that his face won't by letting out a short sigh. Cut to dry waterbed where a small splash of water darkens the soil.)

(It immediately evaporates, but a moment later there is another, and another... pretty soon it is starting to rain.)

(Asger feels a drop on his face. He reaches up and touches it. His eyes widen. He feels more drops. He leans over the edge of the boat and pops his eyes at the sight of water on the ground. A genuine smile crosses his face.)

ASGER: (quietly) It's raining, men.

FRITJOF: (another Viking who looks where he is looking and whispers, reverently) Hallelujah.

(Rain picks up, thunder).

ASGER; (joyfully, at the top of his lungs, laughing) IT'S RAINING, MEN!!!


(Asger and all of the other Vikings laugh, shout, dance, and celebrate that the rains have come back to their land. They may be able to sail again, soon.)

(This song starts playing.)

(Vikings continue to celebrate, fade to black, "THE END", credits as the song plays out.)
