fanmix 002; sight goes red (zuko, atla)  

Well, after the success of my first fanmix as well as too many musical influences, I have made a Zuko fanmix. I actually finished this like two months ago, but posting fanmixes is such a pain in the ass that I have only now gotten to posting it.

This fanmix is heavily metallic and hard rock influenced ending in the cover ballad by Limp Bizkit. I had no problems finding songs I felt fit his character, just difficulty not putting the entirety of Disturbed's "Believe" album (LOL). Most of the songs are fairly self explanatory, though I will clarify that I have taken a bit of creative license with his parents relationship by having System of a Down's "Chop Suey" as the first track. Each track is based upon Zuko's life, what he may have thought as he trekked with his uncle through the Earth Kingdom and his perplexing actions at the end of the second and throughout the third seasons. There are also tracks that pertain to his relationship with his father and sister. Generally, the mix goes through several variations in sound, much like Zuko himself in the series.

01. Chop Suey, System of a Down Mediafire | Box

Father! Father! Father! Father!
Father, into your hands, I commend my spirit.
Father, into your hands, why have you forsaken me?

02. Falling Away From Me, Korn Mediafire | Box

Twisting me, they won't go away.
So I pray, go away.

03. Remember, Disturbed Mediafire | Box

Tear a hole, so I can see.
My devastation, feelings from so long ago.
I don't remember.

04. Bother, Stone Sour Mediafire | Box

Wish I was too dead to care,
If indeed I cared at all.
Never had a voice to protest.
So you fed me shit to digest.

05. The Red, Chevelle Mediafire | Box

This change he won't contain.
Slip away, to clear your mind.
When asked, "What made it show?"
The truth, he can't send to most.

06. Truth, Seether Mediafire | Box

The deception you show is your own parasite.
Just a word of advice, you can heed if you like.
I'm convinced on the inside, something's wrong with me.
Convinced on the inside, you're so much more than me.

07. Animal I Have Become, Three Days Grace Mediafire | Box

I can't escape myself.
So many times I've lied, but there's still rage inside.
Somebody get me through this nightmare.
I can't control myself.

08. Every Day Is Exactly the Same, Nine Inch Nails Mediafire | Box

I can feel their eyes are watching,
In case I lose myself again.
Sometimes I think I'm happy here.
Sometimes, yet I still pretend.

09. Suffocate, Cold Mediafire | Box

I could take all those lies you said to me.
Never go away, never disappear.
This cloud will always hover over me.
I'm leaving you today, 'cause now I see.

10. A Place For My Head, Linkin Park Mediafire | Box

I'm so sick of the tension, sick of the hunger,
Sick of acting like I owe you this.
Find a place to feed your greed,
While I find a place to rest.

11. Behind Blue Eyes, Limp Bizkit Mediafire | Box

No one knows what it's like.
To feel these feelings like I do, and I blame you!
No one bites back as hard on their anger.
None of my pain and woe can show through.

Oh, the link to the zip now says that the file is invalid. I loved Spine and Spit-Shine, so I'll happily wait to download the zip to this!

Mediafire seems to be out to get me, I swear. Ugh. Anyway, I added an alternative download link. Please, for spirits' sake, work!

Thank you so much! It works just fine now. :) I'll be hoping for a third fanmix from you in the future. :D

That's a huge relief, hee! And don't worry, there will be plenty more where these came from in the future. Can't get rid of me that easily! ;)

*squees at the sight of Three Days Grace* Awesome fanmix, I think I have a thing (not lustfully) for tragic characters, haha.
America's Next Top Hermit: atla: zuko waitingprofoundly_grey on January 16th, 2009 11:54 pm (UTC)
LOL, thanks! I love Three Days Grace, and I too also have a thing for tragic, complicated characters.

*sighs contently* Don't we all... their angst is awesome :D

Great fanmix! I love how you've used harder music for Zuko. Thanks for making this available. :)

Thanks and you're very much welcome! I find this mix perfect for those days when I just need a heavy downbeat. :) Love your icon, by the way.
Irial: Bumblebeeirial on January 20th, 2009 01:48 am (UTC)
It is a great mix. :) I can tell that you put a lot of thought into it and I'm really enjoying it. And now I'm going to have to go out and buy Disturb's "Believe" CD. ;D

Love your icon too. ^_^ Thanks for the icon love ;) It's by turtleyurtle1 and (I think) it was posted at the katara_zuko lj group. I think I've seen you post there before actually (mind's a bit fuzzy today..eesh). I tend to just lurk though, I'm rather shy. :)
Irial: Loseirial on January 20th, 2009 02:01 am (UTC)
After I posted this, I had to figure out if I had indeed seen any of your posts at katara_zuko...And promptly saw your fic post "Framework". D'oh! *facepalm* I feel like a right idiot now. (Loved Framework though! :)
America's Next Top Hermit: atla: zuko smileprofoundly_grey on January 20th, 2009 03:15 am (UTC)
LOL, it's all right and thank you! I agonized for like two days, going through my music library, looking up lyrics, making sure everything was perfect. (I'm such a perfectionist, oy!)

I completely understand the shy part. It usually takes me what seems like a century to actually get into the fray of things. I'm still rather lurky there, but I'm slowly coming out of my hermit-dom.

And thanks again, I'm glad you enjoyed Framework!
Irialirial on January 22nd, 2009 04:43 am (UTC)
*L* It was definately worth the effort! It's funny because I've got "Bother" from the Spiderman soundtrack (a huge angstfest in itself ;), but I think it suits Zuko a lot better, especially w/ the lyrics you posted. I love it when people post the exact lines that made them choose the song, it's neat to see and compare.

I think I've posted responses to a couple threads, but I'm still stuck fast in the lurk-dom. ;) I hope you do post more fanfiction though, I really enjoy your writing style. I've got a lot of respect for people who post fanfic, I just need to show it better eh? :)

Are you thinking of continuing Framework? Or is it just going to be a one-shot?
America's Next Top Hermit: atla: flameoprofoundly_grey on January 22nd, 2009 02:22 pm (UTC)
I have been writing fan fiction for close to a decade, though it took me a good two years to actually start posting it, back in 2000. So I am beyond comfortable with it, it's just worrying how it will be received.

I thought of adding another part to Framework, but I feel it's complete where it's at. There may be a sequel in the future, but for now it's a stand alone. I do have another story, Embracing Darkness, that I have yet to post to my writing comm, but it's on FF.net. It's fairly involved with promise of eventual Zuko/Katara. It's rated M, just so you know, even if the rating hasn't come into play yet.
