fanmix - Doctor Who (audios) - Eight/Charley - the butterfly effect  
OMG. I cannot even begin to tell you how long this has been a work-in-progress. I started it . . . sometime in December, maybe? Or maybe later than that; I can't even remember now. But after finally focusing on it properly, it's done.

The main reason this took so long to work on was because I was missing two songs for two audios. I had an idea for one of them, but the other one was damn near impossible to work with. Anyway, how this mix works is something like this: I didn't include a song for every single audio that Eight & Charley had together; that would have just made a massive, twenty-eight song mix & I knew I'd never hold interest in such a huge project. So I picked what I felt were the most important audios for the two of them, & the development of their relationship. Even though it took forever to make & gave me quite a headache at times, I really enjoyed working on it. I adore Eight & Charley & they're completely deserving of a mix. They are indeed, an OTP to me. ♥

A final note before we get to the goodies now.


i. Muse - Butterflies & Hurricanes

Change everything you are
And everything you were
Your number has been called
Fights and battles have begun
Revenge will surely come
Your hard times are ahead

Best, you've got to be the best
You've got to change the world
And use this chance to be heard
Your time is now

ii. Tegan & Sara - Take Me Anywhere

Take me by the hand and tell me
You will take me anywhere
You will take me anywhere

. . . .

You take all the good and bad that comes with me
You will take me anywhere

iii. OLIVIA inspi' REIRA - A Little Pain


Realize that
I'm here waiting for you
Even if the future is different from now
I'm here waiting for you
I keep on shouting
I'm sure all I have to do
Is pull in the thread that connects our hearts

. . . . .

Look at me
I'm here waiting for you
Even if you get lost, blown away by the wind
I'm here waiting for you

iv. Muse - Knights of Cydonia

Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you how God
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

No one's gonna take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

v. Goldfrapp - Fly Me Away

Drifting out of time
Something's on your mind
And I wanna be the
one that you call
when you get down
No matter where you
are in the world I'll be around

. . . .

Miles and miles of sun
Endless roads
twist on
Don't wanna live a life
in a world that's all the same
The crazy little things
that you do are magical

This crazy life
This crazy world
We're living in is

vi. t.A.T.u - Cosmos (Outer Space)

We have our minutes cut
We lose our feelings, but
That's what the movies show
This is where stories go

Stars we don't want to reach
Scars we don't want to stitch
Go where we haven't been
Fly away, time machine

Clouds we will chase them out
Crowds, we will face them down
This is our secret place
Outer space, outer space

. . . .

Ground we don't want to feel
Found what they didn't steal
Time, we were really lost
Bridges burnt, fingers crossed

. . . .

Stars are dancing and the time is fading
Die forever
You and me
You and me

vii. Joy Division - A Means To An End

We were the better kind
Two the same - set free too
I always looked to you

We fought for good - stood side by side
Our friendship never died
On stranger waves - the lows and highs
Our vision touched the skies
Immortalists with points to prove
I put my trust in you

. . . .

Is this your goal - your final needs?
Where dogs and vultures eat
Committed still, I turn to go
I put my trust in you

viii. Boa - Duvet (acoustic version)

And you don't seem to understand
A shame you seemed an honest man
and all the fears you hold so dear
will turn to whisper in your ear
And you know what they say might hurt you
And you know that it means so much
And you don't even feel a thing

ix. Fitzgerald - Ghosts Can't Hurt You

It's only whispers
A flash in your peripheral vision
and that's the only place they exist
In the corner of your eye

Deep under dirt
Deep under skin
Communication can get a little muffled
Motions become a little forced

x. Death Cab For Cutie - The Ice Is Getting Thinner

We're not the same, dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say, and even less we could do
To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you.

. . . .

But we both know, well, it's true
That the ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.

xi. Ito Yuna - Endless Story (soundtrack version)


Memories of our time together
Don't erase them, don't go away
Just let them melt warmly, I want to make sure
These drops of tenderness spread out in my heart
Our hands overlap, don't let go

xii. Poe - Spanish Doll

This place feels so unfamiliar
And yet I know it well
I think I used to belong here
But the only way I can tell
Is that I miss you still
And I cannot find you here
You left me tattered and torn
Just like that sweet Spanish doll

I went down to the alley way
(Sierra la Bonita)
And found that you were gone
si nunca te fueras (if you would never leave)
You left no word no message
I still don't know
Exactly what went wrong

A memory guilded in red and gold
del oro (of gold)
Beauty guarded and never sold
cuídame (protect me)
I keep it with me wherever I go
And I love you still
Recuérdame (remember me)
No matter how a story will unfold

I KNOW, RIGHT? Now I can't listen to that song without remembering the ending of The Girl Who Never Was! IT WAS THE PERFECT (though sad) SONG TO TOP OFF WITH.
