Title: Life During Wartime
Inspiration: stories by [livejournal.com profile] sho_no_tabiMost of her current stories, including A Soul Awake, Dig, Lazarus, Dig, Something Like, Life During Wartime, Keep Calm and Carry On, Red Oni, Blue Oni, and Glitch
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Summary: Follow the image (or the link) to download (links currently down).  Includes 25 individual song files plus liner notes.

Note: This mix started without a particular fic focus -- it was just an Arthur/Eames BAMF action mix. It was supposed to be the opposite of the last mix I created for [livejournal.com profile] gyzym's stories Wherever You Will Be (That's Where I'll Call Home). No more love songs! All badassery all the time! Any hint of sappiness? Rejected!

 And then I read [livejournal.com profile] sho_no_tabi's stories. And I focused. Helpful, of course, because it made me weed out songs and zero in on a theme.  And it let me be a little more romantic when the stories called for it...which was satisfying.  Mainly, though, as always, this was my way to express my enthusiasm and appreciation for a wonderful universe of stories that truly fired my imagination.

Why did I have to find this RIGHT before going to bed? :D This is exactly what I'm doing after work tomorrow, downloading, checking this whole thing out. I love to find new music! And I love badass songs!

Oh man, I can't wait. I have something to look forward to tomorrow.

This is so freaking awesome. ❤❤❤ ^_^

Yes, of course! Please do. Should/would you mind if I post it to the Eames_Arthur community?

And...yay! I'm so glad you're excited about this!

Badass songs FTW!

Now I kinda wish I could create a ninja out of emoticons, but I'm not even going to try.

User [livejournal.com profile] sho_no_tabi referenced to your post from MUSIC MIX (http://sho-no-tabi.livejournal.com/15659.html) saying: [...] point this out. (love that user name, BTW,) has made an incredibly badass fanmix for these fics. [...]

So excited! I am sitting over here flailing in compersion joy for Tabi right now, because she should have all the things.

I was knocking around doing a fanmix myself, a few weeks ago, but I am glad you got to it first. Downloading soon and will undoubtedly enjoy the whole thing. :D

I hope you do enjoy it! I'd be curious to hear what songs were knocking around your head for these stories too -- it's always interesting to hear what music people think of from the same source of inspiration.

Also, I'm a total fan of all your artwork...so yay!

Just dl'd the fanmix! I'm really looking forward to listening to this mix while I catch up on Glitch! Looking over the tracklist, you've got an interesting mix on here! *excited*

I kind of started with Suburbia because I wanted to see what you chose for the Brick reference (as I'm a bit obsessed with that movie), and I really like it! The feel of it is perfect, and what's interesting is while I'm not sure I'd choose it for Brendan, I love it for Arthur-who-was-Brendan.

Anyway, I appreciate all the thought that went into this! =D

I'm so glad you're excited. I do have a wide ranging taste in music, and this mix stretched it all a bit (mainly because I've already done 2 other mixes related to this fandom, and I'm trying REALLY hard not to repeat myself...)

On Suburbia -- yep, it really doesn't fit for Brick in and of itself (and now I'm like...what WOULD fit for Brick? Hmmmm...perhaps the seed of a whole other mix...it's a sickness, I tell you!) I too have been a wee bit obsessed with Brick at times. This song felt right for the regret that Arthur has, for looking back, and for what could have been but was taken away. Also, I think Arthur, with that back story and with Mal's loss, must just have some incredibly long-lasting memories that just sneak up on him.

Hmmm, that's a good question -- what would fit for Brick? I WOULD NOT BE SAD SHOULD THIS QUESTION PROMPT YOU TO MAKE ANOTHER MIX. That main theme (Emily's theme) is so lovely and haunting; I loved it so much I made it my cell phone ringtone (which previously was the Portal radio mix and which I had not changed for 3 years, lol).

Icon love! And then I'd have to watch it again! Such a hardship. I went back and reviewed it after seeing Inception and my love for JGL was rekindled (and I still feel slightly ashamed that I now find him hot in Brick...but only slightly.)

I've taken to using Brick quotes as my status message for chat...it makes me feel all clever and razor sharp. And it helps on days when I kind of wish I could punch people.

Hmm. HMMMM. I shall contemplate.

Ahahah it's so true. SO MUCH is quotable! And has the added bonus of being slightly incomprehensible to anyone who isn't familiar with it! Or just sounding pretentiously snarky, which definitely has its place!

I don't know if I have a problem with finding him hot in Brick, but that kiss between him and Laura! IT IS SMOKING. AND SO VERY WRONG. BUT SO VERY SMOKINGLY HOT.

Um, so, ahaha, do you mind if I friend you? Because clearly if you do end up fanmixing for Brick I would die if I didn't see it! (Also, ahaha you're a Due South fan? These are like the only fandoms I write for... dS/C6D, Inception, and Brick...)

I love how incomprehensible it is to folks who have no idea, and also...pretentious snark ALWAYS has a place.

And yes on that kiss! Hnnng. Partially because I get distracted by his lovely hands, but...yes.

Please do friend me! And now that I know someone's out their waiting for a Brick fanmix...well, you know. All the more reason. \o/

Oh Due South! It's still one of my fav nostalgic fandoms to go back to. Callum Keith Rennie is never NOT hot, and...the banter! And it introduced me to so many wonderful Canadian things (Slings & Arrows!).

Sorry to butt in here, but.


That is all.

OMG HANDS is kind of my reaction a lot of the time. So, agreed!

I just wanted to get back to you to say, I am LOVING this fic mix. Mr. Pin Stripe Suit is incepting me to write something new, too. OMG, I am swinging out with my bad self. Love the whole thing. Thank you so much for the music!

From: [identity profile] wandrinparakeet.livejournal.com
*grin* Yay!

It's funny, too, because I kept putting Mr. Pinstripe Suit on the mix, and then taking it off, and then putting it on again. It felt too chipper, sometimes, but then it kept coming back to me, and I decided that this image of Arthur as a reserved, emotionally cold character was one, just not true to the canon and two, not true in your stories. I love the sense of humor Arthur has, and so...it ultimately stayed.

Pleased to hear you're curious about my other mixes!

Most of them are here on this journal. My first one is here:
Dream a Little Bigger, Darling
And my second one is here:
Wherever You Will be (That's Where I'll Call Home)

I do all sorts of fan mixes of many, many things (books, movies, etc.) but these are the major fandom one posted online.
