Fanmix: Mixtape for Buffy's 21st by Quinara

May 15, 2010 22:35

Hello again! Er, this is a random extra far less serious that the fic I posted earlier. You know all those stories where Spike ends up making Buffy a mixtape for some reason? Well, it's a fun bit of fanon and I like it, but I always wondered what would be on such a tape - being a fan of 70s punk myself (including its relatives on the music family tree).

So I made one! The idea being that Spike was trying to put something together for Buffy's 21st (ie. Older and Far Away). It's quite possible he wouldn't have ended up giving it to her - it starts off being about feelings, but ends up being about kind of more than that...

[ETA: Ooh, while you get stuck in - check out the accompanying fic bogwitch wrote about Buffy receiving the tape!!]

To Buffy from Spike.

The Ramones - I Wanna Be Sedated
twenty twenty twenty four hours to go, I wanna be sedated

He's convinced she likes it really.

Patti Smith Group - Pumping
and my heart starts pumping, my fists start pumping

His heart might not beat, but their fists bloody do.

The Jam - Start!
it doesn't matter if we never meet again; what we have said will always remain

He knows it will be over soon, but he doesn't mind.

Buzzcocks - Love Battery
my mad love battery - fizzing at the terminals

Apart from he does mind, because, well...

Blondie - I Know but I Don't Know
I could but I won't be; you can but not with me

He knows there are some things he doesn't understand.

X-Ray Spex - Identity
when you see yourself does it make you scream?

But if she won't listen to him, maybe she'll listen to Poly. Being what other people want is a killer.

The Clash - Red Angel Dragnet
personally I know the alley, where Jack feeds on the birds of night

This place is a hell hole and the world needs her.

The Jam - Precious
but I don't mean to bleed you dry or take you over for the rest of your life; it's just that I need something solid in mine

In some ways he is sorry that he loves her.

Buzzcocks - Moving Away from the Pulsebeat
you said the things you did in the past were all because you're living to fast, but now I hear you're taking it slow

You've got to end with some perspective.


X-Ray Spex - Oh Bondage, Up Yours!
some people think little girls should be seen and not heard, but I think

He can't listen to it without laughing and thinking of her kicking his arse. Also, if she wants to take 'bind me, tie me, chain me to the wall' as a literal request from him, he's not complaining.

Sorry only one is in mp3 format rather than m4a - and sorry I'm so graphically challenged (but thanks LL at DeviantArt for the stock image of the paper).

Enjoy! ;)
