South Park
Kenneth McCormick

Pairings: Kenny x Butters & Kenny x Kyle.

A/N: Contains spoilers for the Coon/Coon and Friends/Mysterion saga.

Holding Out for a Hero – Jennifer Saunders (3:56)

He isn't quite sure when it happened, or even why. South Park isn't exactly the sort of city one would deem saveable, or even worth the effort, but he's been going out there and putting his ass and life and identity on the line night after night, anyway.

Maybe it's because South Park, as horrible and fucked up as it is, is home. Maybe it's just because he has nothing better to do. He doesn't know, and he doesn't care. The fact of the matter is, he's out here now, keeping a silent vigil over the town like the would-be, wannabe hero he is.

He'll do what he can and when he can to make this cracked little town make just a little bit more sense, make it just that tiny bit safer. And all the while, he'll wonder and wait and hope for a real hero to come along and save him.


Bring Me To Life – Evanescence (4:00)

He doesn't think he'll ever really get over it – the fact that his parents sold his soul to an evil cult and the entity they worshiped in exchange for free beer. He'd always known his parents were shallow and desperate, but he wouldn't have ever thought they could sink that goddamn low.

But they did, and he's the one suffering for it. Death hurts, and it's a pain he won't ever get used to because the pain is always different. It's never the same twice; no bullet or blade ever feels like the one before, and it seems like Death's always coming up with a new, creative way to off him, just because It can.

And on top of that, no one ever remembers, and therefore no one can ever care. He thinks maybe it would be easier if just one person – and that this point, he really couldn't give a fuck who it was – remembered and mourned and missed him. If just one person waited for him to come back, and was more than just pleasantly surprised to see him again afterward.

If someone cared, he thinks, then maybe Death would be a little easier, and for just once, he could really feel alive.


Fast Car – Tracy Chapman (5:00)

Kenny is impulsive, and maybe Butters' parents were right when they said he was a bad influence, and maybe he shouldn't have gone to Kenny with his problems this time because what Kenny's suggesting sounds pretty good right about now.

“Let's fuck off,” Kenny says with a casual shrug, like leaving South Park and his family and friends behind is no big deal, and maybe it isn't for him. Kenny's always been a little detached, and every time Butters has asked him about that, he's always laughed it off and said it had something to do with life and death and things in between.

“B-but,” Butters stutters, palms sweating and hands shaking, because he really does want to go, but he doesn't know if he can bring himself to do it. He's never really had much of a spine, and the fear of his parents is far too great.

“Oh, grow a pair, man,” Kenny rolls his eyes. “We can take my dad's truck and just drive,” he says, slinging an arm around Butters' slender, almost feminine shoulders.

And if that hadn't convinced him, Kenny's teeth on his earlobe most certainly did.


Stole – Kelly Rowland (3:58)

Kyle is a realist, and so it's only natural for him to contemplate death every once in awhile. He wonders how his parents will die and when and how it will happen. He wonders the same about his friends.

Well, most.

He used to worry about Kenny dying. But he learned fast and soon enough that Death just cannot seem to keep a good hold on that boy. He always, always comes back. Even that one time they thought they lost him for good, he came back.

It's apparent that nothing can permanently kill Kenny. He's like some sort of twisted cat with inexhaustible lives, and Kyle used to think that was a great thing. Now he's not so sure, because he's pretty certain that while Kenny understands dying, he doesn't understand death.

And Kyle can't help but feel that this... condition Kenny has, has robbed him of the true meaning of what is it to be alive.


All You Wanted – Michelle Branch (3:35)

Kyle had never really had any super powers, even if he had called himself the Human Kite. Kenny, on the other hand, did have a super power, and whether anybody remembered or believed him really didn't seem to matter anymore. Because he was going to keep dying and no one was going to start caring and their super hero days were over.

But that doesn't stop Kyle from pulling him closer and pressing their foreheads together. Kyle might not remember, fuck, he might not even care, but Kenny still feels an overwhelming rush of warmth rush through his entire body when the Jew whispers softly against his lips,

“I can save you.”

Kenny doesn't think he's worth saving, doubts he even can be saved, but for now he'll bite his tongue and let Kyle play hero, just once more.
