[Ficmix] The Paradox Series (Sherlock/John)

Title: The Paradox Series Soundtrack
Mixer: amethyst_rei
Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Warnings: Vague spoilers for the fic.
Mix Info: 7 songs | 35MB | Password: mycroft
Inspired by: The Paradox Series by Wordstrings (fanfic) (podfic)


Note 1: Okay, this is a soundtrack of sorts to wordstrings' fantastic The Paradox Series. I’m pretty sure this contains all the songs referenced in the fic and used in the podfics, though let me know if I’m missing any. Feel free to download even if you haven’t read said series—the song choices are excellent. If you haven’t read it then I highly, highly recommend you do. The fic is amazing, I swear it is. I listened to the podfics first and they were absolutely stunning, and the moment I finished them I started reading the text version. It's that good. This "ficmix" has been on constant replay for a week now because I cannot get the story, characters or music out of my head. Listening/reading The Paradox Series was the most amazing experience and I wish I could delete it from my brain so I could take it in all over again.

I’ve searched everywhere for a ficmix/collection like this but haven’t come across any so I thought it safe to upload and share it. Hopefully I'm not stepping on anyone's toes. I seriously apologize for the crappy art, btw. I'll post prettier covers once my laptop is back from the shop. In the meanwhile, happy listening!

Note 2: You can listen to "The Young British Soldier" by Rudyard Kipling here and here.

Note 3: An actual listing of the Fine and Not-Fine List can be found here and here. Between the two of them I think they're all covered, but I can't be 100% sure. Let me know if a complete listing can be found elsewhere.

Note 4: Crossposted to sherlockbbc here and 221b_fanmix here.

1| LITTLE ONE – BECK
New days to throw your chains away
To try to hang your hopes on the wind
--
Fine: Kiss me. Now.



2| PERFECT DAY – LOU REED
Just a perfect day, you made me forget myself
I thought I was someone else, someone good
--
Not Fine: Tell John you love him on the perfect day.



3| YOU’VE ESCAPED – ALOHA
Do you see out of the corner of your eye
That I'm standing by your side?
--
Fine: Never leave me.  Not even when I ask you to.



4| KARMA POLICE – RADIOHEAD
Arrest this man, he talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge, he's like a detuned radio
--
Not Fine: There are moments when it is all I can do not to eat you.



5| HEART-SHAPED BOX – NIRVANA
I've been drawn into your magnet tar-pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black
--
Not Fine: Switch non-essential organs with John.



6| YOU NEVER GIVE ME YOU MONEY – THE BEATLES
I never give you my number, I only give you my situation
And in the middle of investigation I break down
--
Fine: Get a full-body X-ray of John.



7| DANCE ME TO THE END OF LOVE – LEONARD COHEN
Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
--
Not Fine: Tell me you’ll never love anyone other than me, now you’ve met me.





"How you love me, though," John says quietly. "Look at that.
Christ, how you love me. The way you love me, it should be illegal."

-- John; The Paradox Series VI: New Days to Throw Your Chains Away

That's really strange. It seems fine to me. I'll upload it to Dropbox just in case, though. Sorry about this.

ETA: I just posted the Dropbox link. Hopefully that won't give you any trouble.
