Fanmix: The Modern Lepers, Sherlock (Sherlock/John)

Title: The Modern Lepers
Author: [livejournal.com profile] flightjacket
Pairing: Sherlock/John
A/N: This mix could really easily be subtitled the "[livejournal.com profile] flightjacket Reads Too Much Flangst" mix. But I am in a lot of debt to the many fic I've read and loved in this fandom that have convinced me over and over that Sherlock and John are both very difficult and broken and mad individuals who nonetheless, to borrow a phrase, get on like a very successful bit of arson. ♥

See How Man Was Made - Josh Ritter
Both Sherlock and John need a home, if they'd only
realize that home is what you make of it.

Man ain't suppose to live alone
No that ain't what he needs
He needs to find a home
With someone else who needs a man
A man who needs a home
Man ain't supposed to live alone

Stealing The Moonlight - Gold Motel
Sherlock is the solution to all of John's problems.
You came around
Showed me what i was missing
Pulled me from the lost and found
Dusted me off and turned me home
Oh, why don't we go
Stealing the moonlight
I know this is something good

Life Fantastic - Man Man
John might be the solution to all of Sherlock's.
it's how you hide your cards
it's how you dress your scars
and let them breathe

life, fantastic...
life, so tragic...

and I'll trip a lie fandango
I'll dangle from your elbow
it's how you envelope me
between chaos and beauty

Fallen From The Sky - Glen Hansard
Of course, it's very possible Sherlock might be a whole other
world of problems. John couldn't tear himself away if he tried.

Will they call you saint, the basket case
The rules of thumb you have to break
The raging skull, The rag to the bull
The nails that drag in either hand
Well I will make my work of that
I know this place, I know this task

You must've fallen from the sky

Wildfires - Josh Ritter
It's perfectly possible Sherlock will never notice any of this.
You must be living on wildfires
You must be living on wildfires
Thats why your eyes
are smoke and ash

You must be living on earthquakes
You must be living on earthquakes
Must be why my heart breaks
everytime you pass

Oh no matter how I try
I just watch you blow by

The Cruel One - Gold Motel
As if there is anything that Sherlock doesn't notice.
I am your sinking stone.
I'd rather be alone than drag you down and pick you up.
Haven't you been through enough?
I am the cruel one.

The Modern Leper - Frightened Rabbit
Sherlock appreciates everything John does for him, in his own way.
Well I crippled your heart a hundred times and still can't work out why
You see, I've got this disease I can't shake and I'm just rattling through life
Well this is how we do things now, yeah this is how the modern stay scared
So I cut out all the good stuff, yeah I cut off my foot to spite my leg

Well is that you in front of me?
Coming back for even more of exactly the same
You must be a masochist to love a modern leper on his last leg

If You Want - Quiet Company
John offers everything he thinks Sherlock wants.
And if you want,
we can go out tonight and be alone.
And if you want,
we can stay in tonight, be at home,
let the whole wide world
just worry about it's own.
It's you and me.

It's you and me,
a nation of two.
Let's do what we please,
let's love what we do

One And Only - Adele
Sherlock asks for just a little bit more.
Have I been on your mind?
You hang on every word I say, lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name, will I ever know
How it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me which ever road I chose you'll go

I don't know why I'm scared, I've been here before
Every feeling every word, I've imagined it all,
You never know if you never tried to forgive your past
And simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I'm worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance

Home - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros
Home, as they've made it.
Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you
That’s true

Ahh, Home Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do, you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass
and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you off to the hospital.
Do you remember that?” “Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat
smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last,
I was falling deep, deeply in love with you and I never told you ‘til just now.”
“Now I know.”
