mix: closer (arianna/lily)

Title: Closer
Fandom: Fangs & Fins
Subject: Arianna/Lily
Spoilers/Warnings: Kpop but that's moved from being a "warning" to a "given"
Notes: Alternative titles: "How many Tegan & Sara songs can I put on ONE mix?" or "I really don't want to study" or "I have a fever and my head really hurts and this happened".
For you, [personal profile] graceviolet . I know I put "Closer" on Tigerlily, but fuck it, I'm putting it on here too.

updated fanmix download links

(1) FIRST SEMESTER OF LAW SCHOOL: DONE!! If anyone needs a lawyer in a few years, I AM AT YOUR SERVICE. 

(2) I've gotten some messages asking about new download links for my old fanmixes (because mediafire is the absolute worst, second only to livejournal who thought they could stop me and my fanmixin' ways), so I've re-uploaded the most requested ones (with some new cover art). If there is one you'd like that I have not uploaded, just comment with the name of the mix and I'll see what I can do! 

As far as I know, the mixes with links that currently work are Because of You My Heart Wears Armour (Thalia/Drew), False Hope (Nanami Kiryuu), Tigerlily (Arianna/Lily), and Love You Like I Do (general lady lovin' for [personal profile] graceviolet ). All of those mixes are currently unlocked, and the latter three should be on 8tracks as well. I'm also hoping to gradually get all my mixes onto 8tracks incase mediafire tries to ruin the fun for everyone again.

mix: tigerlily

Title: Tigerlily
Fandom: Fangs & Fins
Subject: Arianna/Lily
Spoilers/Warnings: Jpop, but I think you've gotten used to my insistence on Asian pop music in my mixes, so...
Notes: Inspired by Apink's participation in what is perhaps the most glorious photoshoot ever, hence the cover art. I will work on getting dl links up once my finals are over, because that's the most time consuming aspect of fanmixin' for me, so 8tracks will have to do for now. Enjoy! ♥

mix: false hope

Title: False Hope
Fandom: Revolutionary Girl Utena
Subject: Nanami Kiryuu
Spoilers/Warnings: Spoilers for the anime, kpop.
Notes: Follows the anime canon (not that there is any other Nanami canon to follow...). Deals mostly with Nanami's dynamic with Touga and the utter lack of resolution she received. How I longed to see Nanami crushing her brother's trachea, single handedly dismantling the patriarchy, and getting the fuck out of Ohtori, among other things. But nope. Hence, a mix. Enjoy!
Also sorry for the shitty cover art, this is the last time I'm ever going to even attempt to work with anime screencaps.

f&f nonesense

 Normally I would make a post on fangbook detailing the updates I'd made to the site but that always feels far to formal and I'd rather just discuss what I have done and am planning to do over here (even though only Kelly and Savannah read this blog but w/e), especially because we are so far behind on updates and I have about sixty other projects going on (and DBM was pretty much abandoned what can I say Kelly and I are flakes).

Over @ fangbook I have changed the layout, removed the chatbox and deleted unnecessary pages - the fourm, the home page, etc. The site is starting to look a lot cleaner. I'm not fond of the default pink color for the links, and I'm thinking of changing it to a dark teal color? I tried red but it looked just as icky. If you have any suggestions please let me know! 
However editing the site has made my suppressed hatred of webs flare up and I am seriously contemplating either:
  1. moving fangbook to another server, most likely weebly.
  2. getting rid of fangbook all together and just updating/reblogging past f&f posts to a joint tumblr
My logic for this is that most readers don't even use fangbook (despite it have 350+ members) and tumblr is our main mode of posting updates (and tvtropes I guess). Also webs is just the worst (i.e. the cariba net incident). 

The only problem with weebly is that it doesn't allow for the two of us to edit the blog together on separate accounts: we have to share a login to post. I don't really see this as a limitation, though: we shared DBM and webs has given us hell in the past re: joint blog authorship. 

Please let me know your thoughts on either of these solutions! I know that getting rid of fangbook would be hard, but it's been infiltrated by TVD roleplayers and the layout is just so messy and it irritates to me to no end.

In other news I have the 22nd and 23rd off from work/class so I plan to be productive!!

Thursday, November 22nd:
  • Fangbook updates will be completed
  • Chapter 7 snippet(s) will be posted
  • F&F PDF will be edited, potentially posted for dl.

Friday, November 23rd:
  • Gemma Doyle megamix and/or Felicity/Pippa essay

the ashleys: all this useless beauty

fandom: recess
the ashleys, tj/spinelli, spinelli/ashley q
AU where Spinelli is the leader of the Ashleys. Most characterizations are based around this discussion.  

I toyed with whether to refer to Spinelli as Spinelli and Ashley S or just stick with one over the other (obviously the other Ashleys/her classmates would just call her Ashley S). In the end I decided to use Ashley S for the majority of the fic. 
This isn't beta'd. I apologize in advance. 

Not completely satisfied with the characterization but I tried! I don't know, this was so much more difficult to write than I thought it would be. Initially I wanted Spinelli to slowly drift towards the Ashleys and become a full fledged member but I could not think of a motivation for her to do that, so instead I tweaked things around and changed the formation of the group and had Spinelli join when she was much younger, thus the lack of hesitation towards dressing more feminine. 
BUT UGH THIS DOESN'T FLOW WELL FFFF. I should have just written drabbles or made a mix. [personal profile] belacqua, I apologize for how bad this fic is.

Make up your own conclusion about the ending, I just kind of love the idea of Ashley T as a super sneaky secret ~mediator~ of the group. I don't know. 

named after my least favorite elvis costello song! )

mix: because of you my heart wears armour

Title: Because Of You My Heart Wears Armour
Fandom: Percy Jackson And The Olympians
Subject: Thalia/Drew
Spoilers/Warnings: Ridiculousness, kpop
Notes: So this happened? And no, it's not just an excuse for me to use Jessica Jung as Drew okay. I feel like we can all agree that this would be HYSTERICAL. Where is the fic? I want fic!!
Basically, this mix has everything I love - femslash, kpop and (two) Tegan and Sara songs. Also I decided to use Kaya Scodelario as Thalia instead of Jessica Stroup simply because there are just not enough usable images of her + it's come to my attention that I have a tendency to use the same image of Jessica over and over again, so I thought I'd mix it up and use Kaya. Anyway, enjoy!

mix: cast a hook in me

Title: Cast A Hook In Me
Fandom: Percy Jackson And The Olympians
Subject: Annabeth Chase
Spoilers/Warnings: Spoilers throughout TLO + pre-series spoilers. 
Notes: Predictably, this has been sitting on my computer for about a year. Sorry?  
Tracks document events chronologically (i.e. not in the order they were reveled to us). The first five songs are pre-series, everything after than details Annabeth's journey throughout the five books. Enjoy!

mix: disintegration

Title: Disintegration
Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Subject: Thalia/Annabeth
Spoilers/Warnings: Mostly pre-series spoilers.
Notes: So the other day I was all "Imogen Poots and Jessica Stroup would look super pretty together and Thalia/Annabeth is awesome" 
Clearly I am easily motivated. The first four songs are pre-series, with "Petite Roses" meant for Thalia being turned into a tree on Half Blood Hill. The last four songs are after she returns at the end of the second book and her and Annabeth's super hot adventures at that all-girls school Percy mentioned they went to, and for when she joins the Hunt and leaves Annabeth behind. 
This is one of the few mixes I've made where the art has ~meaning~. I wanted to show the contrast between the two girls - Thalia is against a white background on the back art for the mix; Annabeth is against a black. I used green and red text because those colors are on opposite sides of the color wheel, on the cover art Annabeth has a bright blue dress (like Thalia's eyes!) while the outfit Thalia's wearing is monochromatic - shades of gray and silver (like Annabeth's eyes!), etc. And the flowers come from the "dirt" line in the Kate Nash song. And, you know. They looked pretty.
Comments are always appreciated, especially if you're downloading.

mix: time flies (a mix for four years on)

Title: Four Years On
Author: [livejournal.com profile] em_sh 
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] sherbetdrop 
Warnings: None.
Artist's notes: Made for [livejournal.com profile] em_sh 's lovely fic Four Years On (which was written for [livejournal.com profile] skins_bigbang)! I was pretty anxious about this mix because I didn't feel like I'd do the fic justice, but I'm very satisfied with how it turned out. I went for darker, melancholy songs for the start of the mix and then ended with quieter songs. Enjoy!
*I didn't include lyrics for songs where all/nearly all the lyrics were relevant.

(fanmix) thalia: hide and seek

Title: Hide And Seek
Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
Subject: Thalia Grace
Spoilers/Warnings: Spoilers, specifically for the third book.
Notes: This is the first in a series of six twenty-track mixes for six different Percy Jackson characters. They're my way of saying thank you for voting for me at the [livejournal.com profile] pjoawards . It really means a lot. ♥ Nico's mix will probably be next.
This probably isn't surprising, but I have always liked Thalia. I just like her a lot okay? This is my testimony to that fact. She was ridiculously easy to find tracks more, and I still have some left over. There are some Luke/Thalia undertones in this mix, and you can probably read a little bit of Percy/Thalia into it as well. There are some spoilers from the series as a whole, so be ~cautious if you haven't finished the series. 
Kaya was used as Thalia this time around, even though I set out to use Anna Brewster who [livejournal.com profile] dorian_mauve  suggested in this post, but I couldn't find enough images to work with. Meh, maybe next time. :/

(fanmix) clutch; a catching fire mix

Title: Clutch
Fandom: The Hunger Games Trilogy
Subject: Catching Fire
Spoilers/Warnings: Spoilers for the entire series (so far).
Notes: I've been wanting to do a Hunger Games mix for a while now. This originally began as a mix for the series as a whole (so far, at least!) but I decided I just wanted to do a mix just for Catching Fire. The Hunger Games was an introduction - I feel that Catching Fire was where we really got to know the characters - they we exposed, raw. I wanted the music in this mix to have an uneasy/anxious vibe with some softer moments and then end quietly.
Mostly gen with some shippy undertones which can (hopefully) be interpreted as either Katniss/Gale or Katniss/Peeta. The songs follow specific events in the book and are in chronological order (the first song is the first event, the last song is the last event) therefore spoilers for the whole book.
