the fiction we live; an arthur & merlin fst  
Firstly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, miir. You are talented and wonderful and sweet son of all that is fantastic, I'm so glad to know you.



Secondly, a FST, because I got an itch. Dedicated to shadows_in_mind, whom I blame for this whole mess in the first place, and fuckyeahfish for being my convert. ♥






01. { INTRO/MERLIN } Shearwater - Home Life

do you remember
she carried you down to the edge
of the dark river and said:
though the water is wide,
you will never grow tired
you are bound to your life
like a mother and child.
you will cling to your life
like a suckering vine
and like the rest of our kind
you will increase
and increase
past all of our dreaming

(horse without rider
lungs without breathing
day without light
song without singing...)


02. { ARTHUR & MERLIN } Ani DiFranco - Overlap
Each one of us
Wants a piece of the action
You can hear it in what we say
You can see it in what we do
We negotiate with chaos
For some sense of satisfaction


03. { ARTHUR } Poloroid - Count on You
And if I let you in
Will you honor my dreams
There’s an opening that I made for you
That only came about
From the moment I
Moment I knew
I had to count on you


04. { MERLIN } M. Ward - I'll Be yr Bird
I'll sing statistics, & hide the truth,
I'll tell your dad anything you want me to,
I'll hide your locket under the dirt,
I'll be your bird.


05. { MERLIN } Bird York - In the Deep
Thought you had
all the answers
to rest your heart upon.
But something happens,
don't see it coming, now
you can't stop yourself.
(In the silence,
all your secrets, will
raise their worried heads.)


06. { ARTHUR } The National - Tall Saint
Don't tell everybody at the table about your dreams,
They're too amazing, it'll melt their minds,
Take 'em to Hollywood, cut out the good parts,
Become millionaires.


07. { ARTHUR & MERLIN } Conjure One - Extraordinary Ways
What I have is nothing to my name
No property to speak of
And no trophy for my game
Intangible and worthless
My assets on the page
My coffers are empty
Any offer of safety has faded away
But what I have
What I have is:


08. { MERLIN } October Project - Be My Hero
Sleep with the window open
Sleep till tomorrow
Be my hero
Be without being lonely
Try to open
We try to open
Hoping for a hero
I want something
I want everything
I want nothing
Nothing else


09. { MERLIN } Claire Voyant - Someday
we will take on any problem in the world
if our own are understood
and I write you in more than blood
and I hope that you see

I know that someday
in your eyes I see someday
in your words I am reminded
in your eyes I see someday


10. { ARTHUR & MERLIN } Regina Spektor - The Call
It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word
And then that word grew louder and louder
'Til it was a battle cry
I'll come back when you call me
no need to say goodbye.


11. { ARTHUR } Broadcast - Until Then
Theres a place I have never explored
Another world we have yet to conquer
And until then none of us have anything


12. { FIN } Clint Mansell - Together We Will Live Forever
Instrumental

Download the zip or rar. (Both re-uploaded to fix scratching on #12 and correct typo - whoops. xD;)

Outtakes;
[ Could have been, just not quite -- either too schmoopy, too overused, not direct enough or i could have changed my mind on the scope halfway through sob. Also, not in the zip/rar.]

Matthew Good - Avelanche
this key is to your kingdom / this key is to your heart / neither one a doorway / but both of them a part / so one foot in front of the other

Deb Talan - Forgiven
one of us seems not to tremble / you make a rift inside me every day / then you choose to stay / I walk the edge and push it wider

Conjure One - One Word
with only one word / you took the ice out of the air again / and put the heat back in the sun again / with only one word

Tom McRae - Mermaid Blues
shape your mouth to fit these words of war / I see the arrows falling backwards / burning for a cause / I'll swim with you until my lungs give out

Pink Floyd - High Hopes
encumbered forever by desire and ambition / there's a hunger still unsatisfied / our weary eyes still stray to the horizon / though down this road we've been so many times

Bruderschaft - Forever [SITD Shadow Bliss Mix]
i will walk this ground forever / and stand guard against your name / I will give all I can offer / I will shoulder all the blame / I am sentry to you now / all your hopes and all your dreams / I will hold you to the light / that's what forever means

Judging by the lyrics, they're all amazing. Will download it all, including the outtakes, when my isp is not being annoying. Thank you for the music ♥ ♥ ♥
arclights on January 19th, 2010 04:55 am (UTC)
There's a couple of my favorite songs/bands ever on this; each song comes pretty highly recommended, but the Shearwater, Broadcast and Conjure One are my personal favorites. I do hope you enjoy it, and you're very welcome! ♥

FOR TRUTH, CONSISTENCY, AND THE EM DASH.: merlinvensre on January 19th, 2010 03:22 pm (UTC)
This looks great! Downloading, and grabbing a couple of the outtakes songs at least. :) Thank you!

Editing to say I think your instrumental has some odd clicks recorded into it, mostly in the first half.

Thank you!

And I finally noticed those too, this morning. :| (Funny, I thought that was my computer when I heard it before.) I've uploaded a better version if you'd like to grab that instead.

This is pretty neat fanmix here. I really am not used to this type of music, so thank you for opening my eyes to it -- all in the name of Arthur/Merlin ^^
arclights on April 11th, 2010 02:08 am (UTC)
I'm glad you like it! There's a lot of music on here that most people probably haven't heard, and it always warms my heart when people find new things to love. :D I hope you have.
