created the following fanmix for my story. It's pretty damn awesome, and includes lots of songs I'd never heard before. *dances around* (More detailed flailing below)
, thank you so much. I feel like I got two soundtracks in one with this mix (one for Ryan/Spencer and one for Ryan/Brendon) and I've lost count of how many times I've gone ♥___♥ when listening to it. And an extra thank you for the Japanese song. That one is going on my favourites playlist right now. ♥

(comments by mixer, added comments by me in small print)
01. The Jesus and Mary Chain: Dirty Water (lyrics
fuck with me and i'll fuck with you, isn't that what we're supposed to do?
kick me down and i will kick you, tooThis song, to me, really speaks of the Spyro element of the overall story. Which is pretty amazing since I haven't even posted the Spyro prequel yet. I'm totally keeping the first verse of this song for that fic as well. :)
02. Asobi Seksu: I’m Happy But You Don’t Like Me
(several translations here
)Okay, so this song is gorgeous. I love it. Everything about it. Especially the singer's voice. Also, Japanese! \o/
03. Regina: Tässä vaiheessa kaikki on jo niin vakavaa
miksei voitu tavata jossain muualla ja jossain toisessa tilanteessa?
tästä ei pääse takaisin
)Finnish music! Haunting Finnish music that goes very well with the angstier parts of the fic.
04. Au Revoir Simone: Back in Time (lyrics
there are times that i felt that this was right, why do you think this
will never work?I love how the singers' voices overlap in this song. Feels like a Brendon/Spencer duet à la "I Know Him So Well" from Chess to me. Perfect breakfast-at-coffee-shop soundtrack. ♥
05. The xx: Infinity (lyrics
after all the time, after you, had you seen me with someone new,
hanging so high for your return
i can't give it up to someone else's touch because i care too muchPerfect soundtrack to The Summer of Epic Pining (TM). :)
06. Athlete: Bulletproof (La Roux cover) (lyrics
)Oh, Brendon! *sniffles*
07. Air: One Hell of a Party (feat. Jarvis Cocker) (lyrics
please do not follow where i am leading, someone must clear these things away
and just where were we trying to get to?Love the instrumental parts in the background. Great mood as well.

we're meant to be one, i know we are
if i am the sky, then you are my starLovely sound in this.
09. Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan: Who Built the Road (lyrics
who built the road
that left my self esteem twisted and crunched, black metal and bones
who passed the buck
who pressed my flesh to yoursSpencer and Ryan! /o\ (God, I love how darkly seductive this song is. Also, the male singer's voice, jc.)
10. Chairlift: Bruises (lyrics
i tried to do handstands for you but every time i fell for you, i'm
permanently black and blue for youI'm starting to think you've got a psychic streak. :) This is so perfect for Spencer and Ryan's backstory. :DDD
11. An Pierlé and White Velvet: Jupiter (lyrics
we may have a future after allMy heart! My heart! I love the spins and turns you're taking in this mix.
12. Zero 7: Home (lyrics
