Weight of Water (Protecting You) plea for help? XD
« on: December 03, 2012, 07:12:31 PM »
SO! I am, um, looking at the next chapter, and for at least the next scene (which is going to be a pain for both Clef and I) I feel the need for a CHAPTER SPECIFIC PLAYLIST.

This may or may not be because Clef has been vindictively singing Adam Lambert's 'chokehold' at me for more than 24 hours now HELP. I don't REALLY want to spend the next FOREVER listening to three Adam Lambert songs, two Alter Bridge and a couple of Evanescence? I would like a LONGER PLAYLIST. Therefore, I am asking for the most THIS WILL NEVER WORK THE WORLD IS AWFUL NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ARGH songs people can find? Also I'm completely and utterly sticking Total Eclipse of the Heart on this damn thing so. XD THINGS TO TRIAL? Doomy 'Clef cannot let himself love anyone FEELINGS ARE TERRIFYING' and/or 'broken due to Emeraude-related trauma' songs? Please? POWER BALLADS WOULD BE AWESOME :DDDDDDDD

(not that I want to be able to switch between channelling ALL THE EMOTION and laughing at Clef. NOPE. NOT AT ALL. I, uh. I need some way to keep sane? Also I COMPLETELY LOVE power ballads, let's not lie. XDD)

(Plus I figure I might as well have an official Weight of Water thread on here, as I'm poking about trying to find things for tying up Burden and writing All Fall Down. But FIRST THINGS FIRST. XD)

1) Chokehold - Adam Lambert
staring at the ceiling in the dark/ sheets a tangled rock/ my heart is like a rock// pictures flashing by inside my head/ I'm hanging like a thread/ but I'd do it all again

I keep running away, running away, running away from you/ But I can't stand breaking the chains, breaking the chains, breaking the chains/ It's too good, cause I know the second you go/ Wantcha to bring it on back, bring it on back, bring it on back to me

2) Blackbird - Alter Bridge
The fragile cannot endure/ The wrecked and the jaded a place so impure/ The static of this cruel world/ Cause some birds to fly long before they've seen their day/ Long before they've seen their day
(this one's more Clef in season two to me about the knights but what the hell WE'RE GOING TO FLASHBACK MAY AS WELL DO IT IN SONG FORM)

3) Bring Me To Life - Evanscence
How can you see into my eyes like open doors?/ Leading you down into my core where I?ve become so numb/ Without a soul my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold/ until you find it there and lead it back home
(NOT THAT HE IS CONFLICTED AT ALL) (WHATTTTT XD) (be glad I am not ever going to actually finish writing the ENTIRE ALBUM FIC I started at the age of 17 based on this album. EVERYONE WAS DEAD BY THE END OF IT, IT WAS GLORIOUS :D)

4) Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by/ Turn around, every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes/ Turn around, bright eyes/ Every now and then I fall apart/ Turn around, bright eyes/ Every now and then I fall apart
(BECAUSE I CAN also if you've ever seen the music video? The building it takes place in? Is twin to the main building of the University I went to in the UK :D)

5) Alone - Heart
Till now I always got by on my own/ I never really cared until I met you/ And now it chills me to the bone/ How do I get you alone/ How do I get you alone
(COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE VERSES I DON'T EVEN CARE :DDDDDDD also can hear it as 'how did I get to alone')

The Chain and I'm So Afraid by Fleetwood Mac are probably going to be there as well?


SAVE ME? PLEASE? Or at least amuse me? XD

  • The Civil Wars - Poison and Wine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-6EwdDiopQ)
    I don't really think this is what you're looking for per se, but this is a nice angst-filled song. I'd imagine a situation more like...they had a huge fight or falling out and they're extremely pissed at each other but they still love each other but they're both too stubborn to say sorry first?!
    Favorite lines: You only know what I want you to/I know everything you don't want me to

  • ALi - 뭐 이런게 다있/I'll be damned (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOwkUXlDk8Y)
    OK, so you might not understand Korean, but this has got to be one of my favorite power ballads (has a special place in my heart too) and I feel like its one of those songs where you don't need to understand the words to understand the feelings per se. But anyways, subs are in the video!
    Favorite lines: Hold onto me/Make up some excuses, say something/Even if it means nothing
    OK. I know this song probably has NOTHING to do with what you're looking for but~~ACTUALLY WAIT, these lines might be more relevant: Don?t look back/If I see your face again/My heart will weaken/Even if I say I?m sorry/Even if my heart hurts/Even if I call your name/Please don?t turn around

  • SAFETYSUIT - What If (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn54P4-cQeI)
    I picture Clef struggling with his feelings - he wants to be there for Umi, but he can't be there romantically for her, and so he's thinking "what if what I want makes you sad," or what if what I choose will push you so far away that I'll lose you, etc.
    Favorite lines: And what if it takes your breath and you can't hardly breathe/And what if it makes the last sound be the very best sound/What if what I want makes you sad at me ...What if it makes you lose faith in me, what if it makes you question every moment you cannot see

  • Levi Kreis - I Should Go (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=499Ijla8CCI)
    This isn't a favorite of mine, but I feel like the lyrics apply to Clef + Umi 100%
    Favorite line: And it?s strange/All we have in common/And your company was just the thing I needed tonight/Somehow I feel I should apologize/'Cause I?m just a little shaken by what?s going on inside/I should go before my will gets any weaker/And my eyes begin to linger longer than they should/I should go before I lose my sense of reason/And this hour holds more meaning than it ever could ...It?s so hard keeping my composure/And pretend I don?t see how your body curves beneath your clothes/And your laugh is pure and unaffected/It frightens me to know so well the place I shouldn?t go/I know I gotta take the noble path/'Cause I don?t want you to question the intentions that I have

Ummm that's all I can think of for now D: My power ballads tend to not be in english (no idea why!)

*flails happily* I think you have just gone 4-for-4 on the earworm/kicking brain in the right ways on those, THANK YOU, also, HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD ALI BEFORE???

(though the Ali one I think is kicking an entirely different project. Um. .........I don't even know, it seems to be hiding in a corner of my brain with 'picture of you' and I am just going to... ignore them...)

and the name 'safetysuit' has so far got the safety dance stuck in my head each time I have spotted it. XDDD But I think Clef is actually latching onto that one, which is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED :DDDDDDD

Anywho, here's a quick list of few songs I've been listening to recently that I think you might be interested in (maybe):


  • Zedd - Clarity (Tom Budin Remix) --- because it doesn't have that dubstep part that totally ruins it and this version has a really nice intro with ocean waves (super soothing)
    'Cause you are the piece of me
    I wish I didn't need
    Chasing relentlessly
    Still fight and I don't know why

    If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy
    If our love's insanity why are you my clarity

  • Sara Bareilles - Gravity; Love on the Rocks; and Between the Lines
    - mostly because I just like her voice

I'm still getting around to reading PY!

*notes new music down with interest for when the internet is behaving itself*

Ahahahaha, uh, my music collection is eclectic and huge because all my spare cash from the age of about six went on books, and from about... ten? On books and music. Sixteen years is a long time to build a collection~ :D I buy a lot of cds from charity shops and secondhand shops for very little, as well as new, and as most of my rather extended family find it hard to shop for me, I usually get money or book/music/stationary tokens at birthday and christmas~ Also my whole family likes different types of music and I listen to all of theirs - and then I took an external harddrive with me to University, and may have filled it with things my friends owned........

..........basically when I called myself a dragon, I was thinking of my hoarding tendencies, and not over gold. XD music and books, though~~~

and stationery~~~

((having recently had to read over the early chapters of PY, um, I MIGHT SUGGEST WAITING FOR THE REWRITTEN VERSION *cringes at the state of them* or skimming through VERY QUICKLY at least until about... chapter 9? Or something? D: ))
