Title: White Feathers, Strange Lights
Notes: So this is mostly "Castiel in S5" mix, and I made it as a sort of counterpoint to the Ruby mix I made a while ago. Pretty short, by my fanmix standards, but I'm somewhat pleased by it anyway. It has some undertones of Dean/Castiel (hahaha) but I tried to focus mostly on Castiel, particularly the arc with his faith. (That is, losing it.)

Subject: And This Great Blue World of Ours by vail_kagami
Title: And This Great Blue World of Ours
Notes: In no particular order, 22 songs that remind me thematically or otherwise of the WIP AU by vail_kagami, And This Great Blue World of Ours, which I am beta-ing. The story is an AU from 5.18 that is astounding in terms of plot, prose, and character. It is still unfinished, but I heartily recommend it.

( The dust is the first thing he notices when he opens his eyes – the dust and the colour of the sky. Deep, dirty orange stretches over him, streaked with brown and red, like blood in various stages of drying, and it’s impossible to tell if it’s dusk or dawn. )

Title: Begin the Human Game
Notes: Trying to cut down on the size of my FSTs - this one is only 19 songs. HA. Has artists including Janelle Monae, Marina & the Diamonds, ThouShaltNot, and a Florence + the Machine song. I actually ended up liking this one pretty well

I don't think I need to reiterate the instructions at this point? VOTE VOTE VOTE FOR THE WINNERS.
( BUILD ME UP BUTTERCUP DON'T LET ME DOWN )
NEXT ROUND. After the killer matchups last round, I think this one should be much easier, for the most part. I think. Remember: vote for the ones you think will win, not just the ones you like best!
( WILL THE REAL SLIM SHADY PLEASE STAND UP )
AND NOW: THE MATCHUPS.
...and I'm not providing Wikipedia links this year, I'm sorry. Or summaries, thus far, though that may change when we get down to fewer rounds.
I encourage everyone to vote! And to vote not just for who you like more but for who would actually win, if at all possible. P.S.: these fights are to the death, so just be aware that they're not just leaving. Although you can think that way if it makes you feel better.
Without further ado:
( THE PARTY DON'T STARK TILL I WALK IN )
And here we go with the faceoffs, generated by the randomizer (SO DON'T BLAME ME)
LET THE GAMES BEGIN. CAMPAIGNING IS WELCOME. AND ENCOURAGED.
P.S. that cut text was a typo. I left it in. Also contrary to popular belief, I do have things to do? I'm just...not doing them.

Title: I Shall Not Live In Vain
Notes: I was halfway through making this when Livejournal spazzed and DELETED THE WHOLE THING. Pissed. It took me long enough to format this. Sometimes/often I don't get me. Starts with an intro and ends with an outro, with chronological order in between. A bit of Patrick Wolf (more of him than any other single artist, I think) and 34 songs total. Comment if you like/are taking, etc...hope you enjoy it. Next fanmix, by the way, is going to be the compilation of Silm fanmix best ofs, hopefully within the week.
( the sky above us shoots to kill )
On the other hand, then there are days like yesterday, where we sit in a plane for an hour and a half only to have to change planes because of a lightbulb (!) and consequently depart two hours behind schedule. And that is why all the things I wanted to have done before the new year are…not done before the new year.
And I am home! First things first, I suppose - a (somewhat belated) VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you on my flist, and I hope this year is much better than last, no matter how your last year was. In other words, exactly what all you lovely people deserve.
Are you ready for this devastatingly longass meme? (First of...oh, three, actually.)

Other notes: Yuletide was overall disappointing in terms of finding stories I really wanted to read, but I have a few recs that I'll post when I'm not deluging the place with memes and a half, and:
How to Lose Friends and Influence People | for sargent_snarky | Silmarillion | Curufin doesn't know what to do with his son half the time.
Beginnings | for sakru909 | Death Note | The boy, his social workers said, was...peculiar.
Milo's Tollbooth | for firebluespinel | The Phantom Tollbooth | Milo returns.
For those of you I still owe presents - those will also be up, as soon as possible! (And to those watching my fic journal...there's going to be a bit of a deluge in the next couple days. I'm terribly sorry. >>
I have also realized that I should make a list of the fic I've written that's inspired by other fic. Because there are a few.
Assorted things of all kinds in here. A couple (okay, two) Jerk/Bitch icons, a bunch of the Keep Calm parody things that I just discovered because I am always late on the bandwagon, some Doctor Who, some Supernatural, some other things entirely.
1-5: Avatar: the Last Airbender
6-11: Keep Calm parodies (for various)
12-14: Jerk/Bitch icons
15-18: Doctor Who
22-23: requested by pashchan (and variation)
24-33: Supernatural (Sam, specifically)
34-36: more Doctor Who
( a fair amount of silliness here lies. please forgive me. )
Also my computer is still freezy and stupid-like-ass and it's making me unreasonably, ridiculously cranky. Awesome.
Subject: Winchesters: Season 4 and 5
Notes: I had a bunch of notes I wanted to give but now I don't remember any of them. A lot of this is Sam-centric - that's just my bias coming through. Spoilers through 5.22 via images and quotes. This fanmix took a fuckton of effort, so please comment if you take/with your thoughts? Oh yes, and some of the songs have the fanmix album name on them, but the mp4s do not. I'm working on that. I believe this is 27 tracks, with 4 (semi cracky) bonus songs.
I do believe that my fanmix covers/layouts just keep on improving.
( like the bullet on your tongue we'll get through it's not too late )
"Right now, he was thanking God that Cas didn't show up at the convention." <-- throwaway line in a fic and oh god
need this in my life so much right now
someone please make this happen?
