Title: I Will Be The Answer (At The End Of The Line)
Fandom: Merlin (the 2008 BBC TV series, not that random movie from the 90s)
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General series spoilers up to 1x07 "The Gates of Avalon", but I opted out of doing those little explanatory notes, so nothing's really mentioned, per se. Actually, if you know what the series is about, you should be good, since all this mix really does is insert its own subtext and speculate about future events like a crazy thing.
Notes: This mix has pretty much been killing me for the past week. At one point it was...40 songs long? I've been trimming and rearranging and redoing the artwork (AND I'M STILL NOT SATISFIED WITH THE DAMN TEXT), and by this point I think I've polished it up as much as possible without driving myself insane. I'm pretty happy with the music selection at this point, even though practically all the male artists I put in there got cut (FREAKING PRONOUNS. I'm POSITIVE that none of these have incorrect pronouns, because of the sheer amount of time it took me to weed out all the ones that did), and it's kind of a big, sappy, love fest. Because that's how I see Arthur/Merlin: an epic love story with ten million obstacles but a satisfyingly cheesy and dramatic happy ending - dramatic violins of emo HAPPINESS AND JOY, and all. Just feel lucky you guys escaped Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up". I was seriously THIS close to putting that on here, but finally decided that would be too sappy and 90s even for me. UM, ANYWAY. ENJOY! And comment if you download, and stuff. ♥ (Also, feel free to drop me a note if you only want one or two songs and I'll upload them for you ASAP.)

01. NATALIE MERCHANT golden boy

Top of the fold, toast of the town
Everyone stops when you come around
They hold their breath for you

02. OASIS wonderwall
And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don't know how

03. IMOGEN HEAP the walk
Inside out, upside-down twisting beside myself
Stop that now; you're as close as it gets without touching me
Oh no, don't make it harder than it already is
I feel a weakness coming on

04. ALISON KRAUSS AND UNION STATION if i didn’t know any better
I turned around
Before I could run I found you already settled down
In the back of my mind

05. GIANT DRAG wicked game
What a wicked game to play, to make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do, to let me dream of you

06. LESLEY ROY crushed
I swore I would be in control of myself
What have you done with me
Your lips (your lips)
My skin (my skin)
I don't know where you end, and where I begin


For this sweet piece of work, high maintenance and deserted
I've been different and deserving, treated like a rose as an orchid
Sweet piece of work, overwhelmed un-observed
I've been bowed down to but so misread

08. WITHIN TEMPTATION see who i am
See who I am, break through the surface
Reach for my hand, let's show them that we can
Free our minds and find a way
The world is in our hands
This is not the end

09. VIENNA TENG harbor

You've got a journey to make
There's your horizon to chase
So go far beyond where we stand
No matter the distance
I'm holding your hand

10. THE BIRD AND THE BEE how deep is your love
And you may not think that I care for you
When you know down inside that I really do
And it's me you need to show
How deep is your love?


You stay the course, you hold the line, you keep it all together
You're the one true thing I know I can believe in
You're all the things that I desire, you save me, you complete me
You're the one true thing I know I can believe

12. FIONA APPLE i know

And when the crowd becomes your burden
And you've early closed your curtains
I'll wait by the backstage door

13. OWL CITY i’ll meet you there
Deep inside of you there’s a ruby glow
And it gets brighter then you and I will ever know
There’s a rushing sound that surrounds us when we walk alone
And it’s everything we've never known

14. HALOU honeythief
And when I'm lost, you search for me
And when I doubt, you're my belief

I'm supposed to be the stronger one
You always seem to prove that theory wrong

I will be the answer at the end of the line
I will be there for you while you take the time
In the burning of uncertainty, I will be your solid ground
I will hold the balance if you can't look down

16. LAMB gorecki
Could we stay right here
'Till the end of time, until the earth stops turning
Wanna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

ETA: Oh, and it would be much appreciated if anyone could tell me where, exactly, I should pimp this baby out (besides [ profile] fanmix, which is the only comm I can ever consistently remember to pimp things at).
