Fanmix: Ribbons Undone, Downton Abbey (Lady Sybil Crawley)

Title: Ribbons Undone
Author: [livejournal.com profile] flightjacket
Pairing: Sybil Crawley/awesomeness
A/N: I'm taking fanmix prompts over at my tumblr, and teawiththetimelord prompted "Sybil Crawley/being awesome," a request which I was happy to fill. That being said, this mix was created in less than a day, and the very first song I put on it was "Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves," so uh, mileage my vary? If you're a fan of women's empowerment music, then we're golden. If you want to give me a prompt, you can do so here.

1. Ribbons UndoneTori Amos
She runs like a fire does
Just picking up daises
Comes in for a landing
A pure flash of lightening
Past alice blue blossoms
You follow her laughter
And then she'll surprise you
Arms filled with lavender

Yes my little pony is growing up fast
She corrects me and says
"You mean a thoroughbred"
A look in her eyes says the battle's beginning
2. Just A Little GirlAmy Studt
You say I’m just a little girl, just a little girl
How can I compare?
What do I know? What have I got to share?
But there’s nothing in this world, nothing in this world
That could hold me down, can’t you hear me?
Don’t you understand
That I wanna be myself, wanna be the girl,
Wanna be the one that you can rely on
How I wish that you could see all there is of me
How I long to hear that you take me
For who I am

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see
But there’s a hell of a lot more to me
Don’t ever underestimate what I can do
Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be
3. ComfortDeb Talan
So cry, why not? We all do
Then turn to one you love
And smile a smile that lights up all the room
Follow your dreams in through every out-door
It seems that's what we're here for

And when you can't remember a better time
You can have mine, little one
In days to come when your heart feels undone
May you always find an open hand
And take comfort, there is comfort
Take comfort wherever you can, you can, you can.
4. Sisters Are Doing It For ThemselvesEurythmics &
Aretha Franklin

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Standin' on their own two feet
And ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Now this is a song to celebrate
The conscious liberation
Of the female state!
Mothers, daughters, and their
Daughters, too
Woman to woman
We're singin' with you
5. Not A Pretty GirlAni DiFranco
I have been working all of my life
And I am a patriot
I have been fighting the good fight
And what if there are no damsels in distress
What if I knew that and I called your bluff?
Don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
Whether or not you ever show up

I am not a pretty girl
I don't want to be a pretty girl
No, I want to be more than a pretty girl
6. Extraordinary MachineFiona Apple
I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day
You deem me due to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way, and say,
I've been getting along for long before you came into the play

I am the baby of the family, it happens, so
Everybody cares and wears the sheep's clothes
While they chaperone
Curious, you looking down your nose at me, while you appease
Courteous, to try and help, but let me set your
Mind at ease

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can't help it, the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me, or treat me mean
I'll make the most of it, I'm an extraordinary machine
