fan mix: Cosmic Love (Narnia — Anna/Georgie)  
Guess what happened yesterday? I SPRAINED MY ANKLE. That means I'm laid up in bed and have time to do fannish things. So it's time for a fan mix (my first ever)!

ALSO, APPARENTLY THIS IS A VERY COMMON FAN MIX TITLE, BUT IDGAF. I named it Cosmic Love in my head before I knew it was common, and that's what it's going to remain.









DOWNLOAD ON DIVSHARE


1. A Short Goodbye — Oren Lavie
D/L HERE
Sweet melodies
At a trembling finger stroke
Will evoke a skin memory



2. Don't Let Your Hair Grow Too Long — Oren Lavie
D/L HERE
Don't change the time on your watch
Always reach, but never touch
Stay a picture on the wall



3. Bad Day — Daniel Powter
D/L HERE
So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh, you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost



4. Long, Long, Long — The Beatles
D/L HERE
It's been a long, long, long time
How could I ever have lost you
When I loved you



5. In Our Bedroom After the War — Stars
D/L HERE
She's gone, she left before you woke
As you ate last night, neither of you spoke
Dishes, TV, bed, the darkness filled with dread
But at least the war is over



6. Rooftop — Melissa McClelland
D/L HERE
The roof slips beneath my feet
As the branches back away from me
The softest grass turns to concrete
But I will fly, I will fly, you will see



7. Breathe Me — Sia
D/L HERE
Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found
Yeah, I think that I might break
I've lost myself again and I feel unsafe



8. Song For Jesse — Nick Cave & Warren Ellis
D/L HERE
(This song is instrumental.)


9. Collect Call — Metric
D/L HERE
If somebody's got soul, you gotta make the move
I know it's a lie, I want it to be true
The rest of the ride is ridin' on you
Over goodbyes we'll buy someplace for
Wishing you could keep me closer, I'm a lazy dancer
When you move, I move with you



10. Through the Dark — KT Tunstall
D/L HERE
I used to talk with honest conviction
Of how I predicted my world
I'm gonna leave it to stargazers
Tell me what your telescope says



11. Hands On Me — Vanessa Carlton
D/L HERE
All the constellations shine down for us to see
And if you don't believe me
Just put your hands on me



12. My Love Grows Deeper Part 1 — Nelly Furtado
D/L HERE
Why can't I be as green as the grass beneath my feet
As fresh as the dew hits the ground in the morning
And not yellow like bumble bees, please take me
Off my knees, my knees
I don't want to be red forever



13. Here Comes the Sun — The Beatles
D/L HERE
Little darling, it's been a long, cold, lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say
It's all right



14. Cosmic Love — Florence and the Machine
D/L HERE
I took the stars from my eyes and then I made a map
And knew that somehow, I would find my way back
And I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you



—————


and a few icons:






For me, the lyrics to these songs are less important than the overall feeling I want them to create when you listen to them all together.


Also, that is Anna on the left of the album cover. Nobody seems to have noticed her role in drag as Bugsy Malone, and it's a shame because it made such great photos (if nothing else)!


This mix couldn't've happened without prunesquallormd's music recommendation in an A/G thread we had going. So cheers to him! :)


That is all. I hope you like this. :)

Oh my god, oh my god!! ♥♥♥

This was such a nice surprise to see on my flist. I actually spent about five minutes peering at the artwork before I looked any further because I was like "...is that Anna? Is that Anna in drag?" AND IT IS. How did I not know of this?? ANNA IN DRAG. I have seriously considered writing Anna/Georgie with Anna in drag before I AM NOT EVEN KIDDING. My mind is kinda blown right now.

But this looks so gorgeous. Stars! Metric! The Beatles! Florence & The Machine! I can't even pick which lyric snippet is my favourite, they're all giving me little bursts of inspiration. And yay for the influence of prunesquallormd, because he is great. :D

SO DOWNLOADING RN.

YES YESSSSSSSSSSS
THIS WAS WHAT I INTENDED
MAJOR SILENT MENTAL JOY RIGHT NOW

Yesss, it really, really is Anna in drag. You know what? I actually did this in one day (yesterday).

Midnight: I can't sleep for crap. *gets out iPod*
3 AM: Still awake. Time to make a fanmix instead of just lying here listening to music.
4:30 AM: FYEAH THIS IS TURNING OUT PRETTY GREAT
6 AM: DONE.

...because I am extra picky about tracks meshing together with their sound, and this was hard with 165 songs only. :/ NOT SLEEPING WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT. Except I went to sleep right after saving the playlist and slept in for hourssssss.

6 PM: *gets on the computer*
6-8 PM: I bent stupid iTunes to my will and made the track listing show up properly. Then I made the album artwork. Then I made some icons of it as an afterthought.

THE END.

:D

Omg I make fanmixes all the time when I can't sleep. I'm usually listening to my iPod in bed and I get an idea and start frantically making playlists and stuff, but I usually fall asleep before I get anything properly sorted. WELL DONE FOR MANAGING IT ALL IN SUCH A SHORT SPACE OF TIME. Especially while sleep-deprived, haha.

I loooove the artwork. The pictures go really well together for some reason. GOD now I want drag!Anna/Georgie fic all over again. I don't even know why. It's like it would just be really hot with Anna in a suit and hat like that and Georgie like, super-girly. IT'S HOT IN MY MIND.

I'd never done it before, hopefully it's something I'll do again in future.
And it's weird, because I had been talking about that Ben/Georgie fan mix but it just... kind of dissolved. And then this happened spontaneously and it worked out. I'm thinking I was planning too much the first time around. :/

Thanks! :)
I knowww I have no idea why I chose those two pictures. Actually, I was thinking about what the album art would look like while listening to music waaaay in the morning and I had this really clear idea of what I wanted. I remembered exactly the Anna photo where she was turned to the side and IDEK. This is what it looked like in my head. The blueness was just a thing that happened and surprised me.
And then I realized how Jazz Age-ish it looked and that's why the font is how it is. Google Images "Miles Davis Kind of Blue" — I was kind of going for blue clean-cut text like that cover has. :/
This was actually intended to be the back cover, (and the track list would've curved around Anna's little spotlight thing...) but then I made it the front and said, NO. I'M DONE. NO TRACK LIST FOR YOU.

OMFG Drag-Anna/Georgie fic, WHAAAAT. I think Drag-Anna/Skandar fic sounds cool too. Eh.
BUT NOW I WANT 1920s-'50s AU FIC FOR NARNIA. ZOOT SUITS AND FLAPPERS.
ANYTHING CAST OFF FROM THE SET OF THE HOUSE OF ELIOTT.

1920s Narnia AU brainstorming begins here

Aristocrat-Will (the First) would come from this giant Money Family. So would Skandar, most likely. (Plus Will and Skandar would be rich playboys who made out now and then.) Not Ben, he'd be a chimney sweep and so would his dad. Anna would be this naïve country girl come to the big city, and Ben would ~lure her in~ (trying to seduce her — Creepy-Ben) to really seedy clubs where she'd take up smoking and hook up with other women. THERE SHE WOULD MEET GEORGIE, the penniless club singer/barely-legal mistress of the richest middle-aged guy who owns like half the city's industries... A.K.A. Sir Liam Neeson. (Lord Liam Neeson? IDK)
Will P. would be in between when it comes to standing in society. Not rich, but not poor either. His father would probably own the club where Georgie worked (and therefore he would work under Lord Neeson). He would befriend Georgie and teach her to read or something else adorable. AND THEN LIAM WOULD GET POSSESSIVE AND CREEPY AND LIKE, THREATEN TO PUT WILL P.'S DAD OUT OF BUSINESS.
Sir Liam Neeson would own this giant empire of businesses and several grand manors and country homes. Very very posh.
Will the First would get involved how? Hmmmm. Perhaps Anna would be distantly related to him (third cousins or something), and so as a young gentleman and her family, it would be his job to brush up her rustic manners and ~present her into society~. But that's got to be hard when Anna is totally and clandestinely in love with Georgie.
The happy ending would be Creepy-Ben murdering Lord FOREVER ALONE NO FAMILY OR KIDS JUST MY DAMN WIFE Liam Neeson, and going to jail for it. Or else throwing himself into London traffic. IDK. (Please conveniently forget that Liam Neeson's wife is both Natasha Richardson and dead. That is sad and the creepy Georgie plot would only cause her pain as a character. Instead, Liam would just have this ordinary, very stiff wife his age who bored him. PLAYED BY THE PEVENSIES' MOTHER FROM LWW.)
Then Will and Skandar would live in rich love forever and ever. Will P. would secretly pine after Georgie, but end up forgetting after some sweet girl came to town (the actress who'll play Ramandu's daughter? Or Jill Pole?).
And as for Anna and Georgie? They'd move together to some little cottage waaaay in the country, fronting like they're going to become Old Spinster Lady Friends one day, but actually secretly in love. Nobody would question it or even notice.
THE END.

Also why did I put "THE END" at the end of both these comments? IDK. That's just what worked out.
L.C.: narnia; annalikecharity on November 23rd, 2010 04:09 pm (UTC)
OMG OMG THAT 1920S AU IDEA IS SO FANTASTIC THAT I WANT TO MARRY IT. I've been watching Boardwalk Empire and getting really interested in that era so this is AWESOME.

WILL AND SKANDAR AS RICH PLAYBOYS = YESSS. And all day they just lounge around this giant mansion they live in and throw parties. AND MAKE OUT.

Omg Ben corrupting Anna = love it. Ben should be like a poorer version of his Dorian Gray character, so he knows all the seedy places and where the orgies happen, lol. And omg I love the creativity behind Liam Neeson's storyline, lol. BUT I WANT TILDA SWINTON BE IN HERE SOMEWHERE TOO. And idk, would Georgie work if she was the mistress of someone all rich and important? OOH. MAYBE she could be like this burlesque dancer/high class prostitute, at this classy brothel, and TILDA SWINTON IS THE MADAM OF THE BROTHEL. CAN'T YOU JUST IMAGINE THAT.

And maybe Anna is actually kind of rich and high society too, and her parents have her whole life planned out for her and have picked a man for her to marry etc etc, but she's bored of that lifestyle and frustrated at not having any freedom, and while Will and Skandar are allowed to do whatever the hell they want, Anna's all trapped in this strict, uptight household. And maybe Ben works for her family somehow? Like he's a servant of some kind? And she gets talking to him and he corrupts her and takes her to all these places to ~let loose like you said. And he takes her to the brothel/strip club/whatever where Georgie works, for some reason, and she dresses in drag to disguise herself! And falls for Georgie!

I DON'T KNOW WHERE LIAM NEESON WOULD COME INTO THIS THOUGH. But maybe it's best if we avoid the whole wife issue with him 'cause that could be a delicate subject. But omg Will P. teaching Georgie to read. ♥_♥ He could like, visit the brothel but never actually pay to have sex with her, just spend time with her and help her out with things. Because he's totally in love with her but he can't build up the courage to say so and what would his family think, etc etc. And he doesn't have the money to actually give her a better life so he just PINES AND PINES.

OMG MAYBE, MAYBE WILL (the first) IS THE ONE ANNA'S SUPPOSED TO MARRY. Like their families are connected in a vaguely incestuous way and she's been promised to him since she was little. And she's always sort of been jealous of his wild lifestyle compared to hers but whenever she spent time with him (like at their fancy family dinners, or when she'd sneak out to one of Will and Skandar's parties) he'd always just try and put the moves on her and she just wasn't interested, and she never knew quite WHY until she first set eyes on Georgie. And all of a sudden she wants to break away from her upbringing and take a load of her family's money and get Georgie out of prostitution and live with her.

Omg I feel like I've just twisted your whole idea around but THERE ARE SO MANY POSSIBILITIES WITH THIS, I LOVE IT. I love this whole universe can we write it please?? I'm even more excited about this than the orgy sequel, idek. THIS COULD BE EPIC.

I AM GOING TO RESPOND TO THIS WHEN I HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO GIVE IT ALL MY ATTENTION. BECAUSE DAMN, THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. *fist bump*

*cough*

So uh. This happened.



And maybe also this.



WHAT, MANIPPING NARNIA ACTORS' FACES INTO PHOTOS FROM THE 1920S IS A PERFECTLY ACCEPTABLE USE OF MY TIME.
