Fanmix: Give Yourself Away, BBC Merlin (Arthur)

Title: Give Yourself Away
Author: [livejournal.com profile] flightjacket
Pairing: Arthur/character growth
A/N: Thinking about where Arthur's character has come from, and how far yet he still needs to go. I was in an epic instrumentation kind of a mood when I put this together, so expect a lot of that. I thought it fit the theme well?

1. Golden BoyNatalie Merchant
Top of the fold, toast of the town
Everyone stops when you come around
They hold their breath for you
Beauty untamed, stupid and wild
Poster boy, you're society's child
Cut your teeth
Cut your mouth
Cut it out
2. The Frog PrinceKeane
Your prince's crown
Cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You've wandered so far
From the person you are
Let go, brother, let go
3. Helplessness BluesFleet Foxes
I was raised up believing I was somehow unique
Like a snowflake distinct among snowflakes, unique in each way you can see
And now after some thinking, I'd say I'd rather be
A functioning cog in some great machinery serving something beyond me

But I don't, I don't know what that will be
I'll get back to you someday soon, you will see
4. White ShadowsColdplay
We're part of the human race and
All of the stars and the outer space
We're part of the system plan

All this noise, I'm waking up
And all the space, I'm taking up
I said I cannot hear you, you're breaking up

Maybe you get what you wanted
Maybe you stumbled upon it
Everything you ever wanted
In a permanent state
5. Don't Say NoPatrick Wolf
Just throw yourself in
Just give yourself in
To the pattern

A thousand miles above our heads
They are bleeding
Mighty currents upon the day
If youre brave enough, you'll just let it happen
If youre brave enough, you'll give yourself away
6. In The Countenance of KingsSufjan Stevens

I've had this open in a tab since yesterday but I got dragged off to writing club and for some reason there is no internet at Krazy Moose Subs (yeah, idk either) and THEN they whisked me away to the inn to watch STARSHIP (yes. That starship. Starship rangers. Where I called dibs so hard on the guy who plays Tootsie Noodles/Giant Space Scorpion that I may have actually pulled a muscle. don't care.) and the first part of Me & My Dick on a screen that is literally 8 FEET WIDE, so I have awesome excuses. y/y/y?

And now. Music. \O/

That sounds like a beautiful, beautiful day. And you WOULD pick Dylan. He is by far one of the more talented singers in Starkid, and definitely the best singer in Starship. Does this mean you still haven't seen the Harry Potter musicals, though? Dylan plays Dumbledore, remember! Go watch him coo over the Sorting Hat and the Scarf of Sexual Preference's budding romance!

Hope you enjoy the mix, but I feel like I'm after an act that's tough to follow. :D

This is such a beautiful cover and mix, it surpasses lovely and lands softly in the land of exquisite. I love the subject matter, too; I hear so many people say "I would like Arthur, but he's a prat," and I say "yes, but it's the journey. He's getting there." And to me, while it's painful sometimes to see how he treats Merlin especially, he's got a good heart and he's learning.

Thank you so much for the lovely comment! Merlin frustrates me continually, but as this mix indicates, I can't help but hold out hope for Arthur, especially as he's set to take on more responsibility this season.
