mix - Star Trek Big Bang '11: Messages in Green - It's All Just Alchemy  
Fandom: Star Trek AOS au
Subject: erynwen's startrekbigbang fic, Messages in Green
Title: It's All Just Alchemy

Notes: This fic is an exciting, urban fantasy cop au (trust me, it totally works) with an absolutely perfect re-imagining of the characters to fit into the setting. There are so many things about the actual plot that I just love, but I sadly can't tell you what they are without spoiling the story. What I can tell you, is that the world-building is aaaah-mazing and the imagery is spectacular. Plus, there is amazing art from nix_this. This is our second year in a row of creating art/mix for a story, so I knew from the moment match up emails went out that I would love what she did.

For this mix, I tried to capture the mix of magic/modern and wizard/cop, as well as the natural mix of characters offered up by the cast and the setting, by using a variety of genres. The mix focuses most strongly on the relationship between McCoy and Nero, with some McCoy/Kirk thrown in on the side. I can only hope I did this story some justice. Big thanks go to heeroluva who helped me out when I was stumped for tracks. She suggested a few, and then suddenly the whole mix came together even though I only used one of her suggestions. Because of this, the mix literally wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for her.

As before, clicking on the song title will allow you to download individual songs, and a download link for the whole schebang is down below at the end of this post.

Messages in Green: story by erynwen | art by nix_this

01 | Blackest Crow // Angi West

As time draws near my dearest dear when you and I must part
How little you know of the grief and woe in my poor and my poor aching heart

02 | Ollo // Hans Zimmer & Lorne Balfe


03 | Arc of Time // Bright Eyes

To the deepest part
Of the human heart
The fear of death expands
Till we crack the code
We have always known
But could never understand

04 | I Follow Rivers // Lykke Li

He a message, I'm the runner
He's the rebel, I'm the daughter waiting for you
You're my river running high, run deep run wild

05 | A Lack of Color// Death Cab For Cutie

I'm reaching for the phone
To call at 7:03 and on your machine I slur a plea for you to come home
But i know it's too late

06 | All That I Am // Rob Thomas

Lay your head upon my shoulder
Lay your hand within my hand
I give you all that I am
And I breathe where you breathe
Let me stand where you stand
With all that I am

07 | Recognizer // Daft Punk


08 | Death to Death // Stars

So tired waiting for the end to come,
Fully dead already but forever young,
Hello, my dearest father it's your favorite son,
There's some things that I'm regretting

09 | The Fallen // Franz Ferdinand

We've already seen
That the fallen are the virtuous among us
Walk among us
If you judge us
We're all damned

10 | Red Angle Dragnet // The Clash

I come from a long way off
And I know a lifegiver over a lifetaker

11 | Weapons of Mass Destruction // The Crystal Method


12 | In Our Blood // Horse Feathers

There are things you tend to say when you're alone.
There are tones you tend to take when you're at home.
Let me be that thorn, thistle, or key.

13 | Science & Magic // Patrick Doyle


14 | Great Companion (acoustic) // Landon Pigg

It's not that you lost a friend
I just need some time to lick my wounds
I'll be out of service for a little while
I'm sure I'll be up and running soon

I think LJ ate my comment? Huh.

ANYWAY! I just wanted to say again how much I loved working with you guys and how adorable your mix cover art is! I listened to the songs last night (PATRICK DOYLE LOVE IS THE SWEETEST LOVE) and everything fits so cleverly, from the title, the cover and the tracks themselves.
