Fugitives: A Natasha & Clint Fanmix

if we don’t hide here
they’re going to find us
if we don’t hide now
they’re going to catch us where we sleep

Warnings: None. Not really spoilery for the movie or the Marvel 'Verse. Spoilers for both in the notes below, though.

I have a lot of feelings about Clint Barton and Natasha Romanoff. This mix isn't meant to be particularly shippy (though it could easily be taken that way) because I think their relationship goes way beyond anything sexual or romantic. They're two people who shouldn't trust each other, but do. Natasha can't trust herself because her brain is a mess of tangled memories thanks to her history of brainwashing. Clint's history of betrayal and mind-control by Loki in the movie means he's not exactly stable either. So it's some kind of miracle that they manage to find a home - however violent, however grudging - in each other.

coldplay :: spies
I awake to see that no one is free
we’re all fugitives; look at the way we live
andrew bird :: i
we’re keeping busy, yeah, we’re bleeding stones
with our machinations and our palindromes
anything but hear a voice that says we’re basically alone
tunng :: tale from black
she washes all the young blood from her hands in the sink
and she knows that the lights will be there for her
breaks down the bodies to dark subtle ink
and she scrawls on the parchments that hang in the air
tegan & sara :: arrow
would you take a straight and narrow critical look at me?
would you tell me tough-love style, put judicial weight on me?

guster :: lightning rod
steady on this high-rise like every lightning rod
and all these clouds are boiling over
swimming in adrenaline, the sky is caving in
but I will remain the honest soldier
she wants revenge :: red flags and long nights
it’s never hard to tell when things are done
she looked into my eyes and a voice said, “run.”
she says that I’m a mess but it’s alright
whether it’s two weeks, two years or just tonight
franz ferdinand :: outsiders
we’ve seen some change but we’re still outsiders
if everybody’s here then hell knows we ride alone
gomez :: how we operate
please come here, come right on over
and when we collide we’ll see what gets left over
the national :: cherry tree
take us down and all apart
lay us out on the table
envy & other sins :: the company we keep
we change our shape to suit the company we keep
but then you know we have our reasons too
they might be watching us
they’d like to lock us up
wintersleep :: fog
these broken arms won’t hold you down
these ruptured lungs won’t make a sound
these syllables won’t bring you back,
won’t stitch the holes, no bones intact
the xx :: crystalised
don’t think that I’m pushing you away
when you’re the one that I’ve kept closest
metric :: combat baby
said it all before: they try to kick it, their feet fall asleep
I want to be wrong, but
no one here wants to fight me like you do
brand new :: fork & knife
hold on to who you love
we are dry and blown like dust since we were young
the morning’s over, the day is in full swing

So Sinister: A Death Eater Fanmix
this is the story that time forgot.
and though some names have changed,
some names, some names have not.

Medium: Books
Harry Potter
Subject: Death Eater recruitment
Title: So Sinister
Warnings: none
Notes: This got pushed to the back burner sometime last year; I've moved things around & added some songs. Mostly this mix is my idea of what recruitment was like in the years before the first war.

grounds for divorce ~ elbow
there's a hole in my neighborhood
down which of late I cannot help but fall

missionary ~ the brothers martin
it's been coming for a long time
and some heads are gonna roll
so who's your daddy?
he's got a vision and some gold

ulysses ~ franz ferdinand
so sinister, so sinister,
last night was wild.
what’s the matter there, feeling kind of anxious?
feeling that hot blood grow cold?

adore, adore ~ yoav
it’s easy, believe me
I’ll show you such wonderful things
I’ll show you such wonderful things ‘til you’re just like me.

master & servant ~ nouvelle vague
you treat me like a dog,
get me down on my knees
we call it master and servant

I would hurt a fly ~ built to spill
I can't get that sound you make out of my head
I can't even figure out what's making it
no one else around even seems to be noticing
it's only small enough for me
there's a mean bone in my body

eyes on fire ~ blue foundation
I won’t soothe your pain
I won’t ease your strain
you’ll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain

restless sinner ~ black rebel motorcycle club
it can't be known what lies in wait
for those of us in crippled states
a broken mind is no escape
when there's no one left to reason with
there's no one left to call your name

comment if you take, please! thank you.

Gold Lions: a Gryffindor House Fanmix

Medium: Books
Harry Potter
Subject: Gryffindor House during the war
Title: Gold Lions
Warnings: none
Notes: This mix is meant to be a sort of exploration of what it meant to be a Gryffindor during the war. I always thought they were sort of boring, actually, but after putting the mix together & thinking about it a lot I've realized that being boring is just a camouflage for their badassery.

gold lions ~ yeah yeah yeahs
gold lion's gonna tell me where the light is
tell me what you saw,
I'll tell you what to do

lions ~ the features
alright now, let's stick together
let's follow our hearts
not even lions can tear us apart

good times gonna come ~ aqualung
this is just one of those lonely nights
good times gonna come

one more time with feeling ~ regina spektor
hold on, one more time with feeling
try it again, breathing's just a rhythm
say it in your mind until you know that the words are right:
this is why we fight

yeasayer ~ ambling alp
now, the world can be an unfair place at times
but your lows will have their complement of highs
and if anyone should cheat you, take advantage of, or beat you
raise your head and wear your wounds with pride

all these things that I have done ~ the killers
I wanna shine on in the hearts of men
I want a meaning from the back of my broken hand
I got soul but I'm not a soldier

storm ~ jose gonzalez
as soon as the storm is over
and all the fog is clear
as soon as the storm is over
I've promised to send out for you

soft revolution ~ stars
we are here to save your life
the fool, the drunk, the child, and his wife
we won't let the sun go down
we're gonna chase the demons out of town

after changing everything
they couldn't tell we couldn't sing
and that changes everything

Like Dust: A Remus Lupin/Sirius Black fanmix.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Subject: Remus Lupin/Sirius Black
Title: Like Dust
Warning: profanity in Evening on the Ground.
Notes: Sirius & Remus do not have the most screwed-up relationship ever, I don't think. But they probably couldn't have picked a worse time to have it. Eight songs that span from Hogwarts to Harry's fifth year & beyond. all mp3s. coverart images (c) donnie vendetta.

secret ; bloc party >> the beginning
boy, keep your stories close to your chest
I said boy, keep your secrets secret

i don't know what to do ; pete yorn & scarlett johansson >> admitting it (sort of)
every time I see your eyes
I want to walk with you in moonlight
and I know you're not intending
to go on just pretending

black wave/bad vibrations ; the arcade fire >> the war begins
nothing lasts forever
that's the way it's gotta be
there's a great black wave in the middle of the sea
for me, it's always for you

blinding ; florence + the machine >> the war
no more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone
no more calling like a crow for a boy, for a body in the garden
no more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love with the wrong world

evening on the ground ; iron & wine >> after october
so you will blame me
blame me for the rocks and baby bones
and broken lock on our garden
we were born to fuck each other one way or anothe

all the right moves ; onerepublic >> the fighting
I know we've got it good,
but they've got it made
they've got all the right friends in all the right places
so yeah, we're going down

disconnect ; she wants revenge >> sirius' death

fork & knife ; brand new >> the end
what we invented, I am now ending
hold on to who you love
we are dry and blown like dust since we were young
the morning's over, the day is in full swing

Tidal: A Sally Jackson/Poseidon fanmix.
Because doomed love gets me every time.
(cover art for front (c) Sarah Hermans)
Medium: Books
Fandom: Percy Jackson & the Olympians
Subject: Sally Jackson/Poseidon
Title: Tidal
Notes: These two! I've always been curious about what made Poseidon break his post-WWII pact with his brothers. And Sally, of course, besides being the Coolest Mom Ever, must have known, at least a little, what she was getting into. This is just a short, sweet mix that follows the path that I think their romance must have taken. Track eight is a bonus because it fits them perfectly, but applies to their lives after that night in Montauk. I'd recommend listening to the songs in order, if you want to listen to them as a coherent story.

When she wakes up the bed is empty, but the pillow under her head smells like salt and the sea.

home as a romanticized concept > woodpigeon
I got a reason to know there's more than you
an untold season spent elsewhere, somewhere true

bette davis eyes > gwyneth paltrow
she'll turn the music on you, you won't have to think twice
she's pure as New York snow, she's got Bette Davis eyes

tidal > imogen heap {mp3}
while we're tidal and flexed on a full moon
it'd be a sure, sure shame to not to
nobody has to know

this modern love  > bloc party

our window > noah and the whale
well it's four in the morning,
and things are getting heavy,
and we both know that it's over, but we both know we're not ready

boats and birds > gregory & the hawk {mp3}
but you can set sail to the west if you want to
and past the horizon till I can't even see you
far from here where the beaches are wide
just leave me your wake to remember you by

bonus : biko > bloc party
the world isn't kind to little things
remember that when the darkness looms,
you're not doing this alone
