The past couple of days I’ve been uploading some of my old fanmixes from Livejournal onto 8tracks. In alphabetical order, here they are:
Down We Go (Anakin/Padme from outta Star Wars)
I Will Make You Hurt (Harry Osborn from outta Spider-Man)
Leaving Land (Mickey Smith from outta Doctor Who)
She Learned (Rose/Doctor, mostly Rose really, from outta Doctor Who)
Sit Down Next To Me (Ursula from outta Spider-Man)
The Streets Of London (V for Vendetta)
It took ages, I updated the cover art for most of them. Whew.
If you knock down Martha to build up Rose/hate Martha for daring to go near the Doctor/hate Martha for being Rose’s ‘replacement’…
…Rose would not appreciate that? She and Martha are friends! (Admittedly friends who only knew each other for a day, but you know, the script for that episode went out of its way to point out there was no animosity between them.) If someone said to Rose, “yeah, how about that Martha Jones, I bet you hate that cow for trying to take your man” she’d probably fix them with a cold stare and say, “Are you slagging off a woman who helped save the universe like loads, who was my mate, is that what you’re doing.”
Do you love/hate/don’t feel strongly about this character? I geniunely do like Rose and I’d want to be her friend if she was real, but sometimes I complain about how the show elevated her above all the other ladies/knocked down Jackie and Mickey in favour of her. But that’s really more of a complaint about Russell T Davies’s writing…
What’s your favorite trait of this character? Her bravery.
What’s your favorite moment/even involving this character? That bit where she SHOOTS THE DEVIL IN THE FACE (okay, tiny bit exaggerated for comic effect, but it was really awesome and yes she KILLED THE DEVIL. Or at least banished him to outer space.)
If you could have one power/attribute/etc. of this character, what would it be? Hmmm, as mentioned above, I’d like her bravery
Have you ever pictured this character naked? Nope!
When did you fall in love/hate with this character? I you don’t have any strong feelings toward them, why not? There was a time (round about School Reunion) when I thought I disliked her but I just can’t dislike her really. She’s just sort of simultaneously too interesting and too normal for me to ever hate her. She’s…eh, she’s kinda us.
Who’s your OTP for this character? Rose/the clone Doctor! Assuming she’s happy with him, but I think she probably is, or I hope so
The Doctor showed me a better way of living your life. You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand. You say ‘no.’ You have the guts to do what’s right when everyone else just runs away!
Trapped in a box of tremendous size
It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes!
A fanmix for the people who wanted to Impress Him, and the price they paid; songs for Rose’s tears, Mickey’s anger, Martha’s ill-treatment, Donna’s de-powering, Rory’s lack of faith and Amy’s scream. Their seperate obsessions. And then some.
1. “Do you wanna come with me?”
birdhouse in your soul (they might be giants) I’m your only friend I’m not your only friend but I’m a little glowing friend but really I’m not actually your friend but I am // minimal (pet shop boys) An empty box, an open space, a single thought leaves a trace // i saved the world today (eurythmics) everybody’s happy now the bad thing’s gone away // life on mars (david bowie) her friend is nowhere to be seen as she walks through her sunken dream // view from heaven (yellowcard) I’m sure the view from heaven beats the hell out of mine here // oh my god (the kaiser chiefs) oh my god I can’t believe it I’ve never been this far away from home
2. “Your wish is my command. Just be careful what you wish for.”
don’t fear the reaper (blue oyster cult) she had taken his hand she had become like they are // the sound of silence (simon and garfunkel) people talking without speaking people hearing without listening // scary monsters and super creeps (david bowie) she asked me to stay and I stole her room, she asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind // the court of the crimson king (king crimson) the yellow jester does not play but gently pulls the strings, and smiles as the puppets dance in the court of the crimson king // tryin’ to throw your arms around the world (u2) how far you gonna go before you lose your way back home
3. “You were that close to her once, and now you never even mention her. Why not?”
don’t think you’re the first (the coral) don’t think you’re the first in the whole universe to be untouched by the time, think you’re one of a kind // parasol (tori amos) and then the seated woman with a parasol may be the only one you can’t betray // hypnotist of ladies (they might be giants) never had a pocket watch never counted backwards you won’t remember why you liked him // jar of hearts (christina perri) who do you think you are, running round leaving scars // i’ll forget you (linda eder) I’ll forget you, tomorrow I will turn and let you go
4. “How long are you going to stay with me?” “Forever.”
howl (florence and the machine) if you could only see the beast you made of me // are we human or are we dancers (the killers) will your system be alright when you dream of home tonight // trapped in a box (no doubt) oh this is not enough for a human to grow, trapped in a box // paradise (coldplay) she said oh I know the sun must always set to rise // hotel california (the eagles) you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave
Companion word clouds: Rose, Martha, Donna
