Unrequited (?) love. We all know the feeling. It's hope and butterflies and sunshine and pain and doubt and longing. Do you say something? If you do, what you have - smiles across the cafeteria, walks on icy streets, laughter, comfort, silliness - could become so much more, and it would be lovely, no, better than lovely. But maybe you can't. Because you know it might not. That what you've longed for will be exposed for what it really is - just a fantasy.

This mix is about unrequited (?) love. Molly requested it (♥♥♥), but I know there's more of you on my f-list struck with the lovebug this time of year. So, this one's for you. For the ones who've said something and had their dreams crushed, and the ones who are still trying to build up the courage.

One serving of unrequited (?) love with a side of hope. ♥
"You will never be as you were. What is left to you is the chance to become something new and unsure. But at least the waiting is over." (Rebel Angels, Libba Bray)

This looks lovely, thank you! And I love the Libba Bray quote - she's so great.

(Btw, question: how do you make your album art? Because I have a mix made, but I want art for it, and I have no idea how to do it. Help?)

Enjoy! And yes, Libba Bray is the BESTEST EVER.

(For gen mixes, I just crop, desaturate and up the black levels a bit! For my other stuff, I mostly...fiddle around with Photoshop for an hour? I DON'T REALLY HAVE A METHOD.)

Gah, you have such amazing taste in music. If I didn't love your mixes already I'd be snagging just for this one.
