Aaargh. Today was going to be a writing day but I've barely squeezed out 300 words, and the stuff I was working on, I cannot currently get to :( Even the embarrassing fic which, since it is embarrassing and id-y and has no smut in it, I feel like I would write quickly. (I am having some sort of bizarre smut block.)

So I am going to do a meme! Plz entertain me, you guys. I'm in the mood for a music-related one, since I'm really enjoying [livejournal.com profile] hyperdarkchoc92 and [livejournal.com profile] kubrick_potter's 30-Day Music Memes.

Post a comment with a character or pairing and I'll tell you what song reminds me of them.

...Not all my posts can be interesting, okay? :p

That's one I don't really have a perfect song for, as it happens. I tend to listen for shades of it in mentor-type songs but there aren't many.

So my answer is quite embarrassing, but the one that came to mind is Lua by Bright Eyes.

When everything is lonely I can be my own best friend...
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like shit.

And I know you have a heavy heart; I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me I'm not a gamble you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning won't exist.

You're looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
You just keep going to the bathroom always say you'll be right back
Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think you've got it bad
But what's so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag...

And I'm not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
The reasons all have run away but the feeling never did
It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is
What's so simple in the moonlight, now is so complicated
What's so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight

I can really feel it as a Snape song, where he's kind of hopeless from all his years of spying and he can see how Draco is fraying under the pressure of being a Death Eater, but they're fucking regularly and it's simple then. And he's sort of telling himself he doesn't mind that Draco's in love with him and he still can't save the boy. It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live.

I didn't know that song... or its emo-reputation. But I'm always interested in what the perfect song for Snaco could be, because I don't have one. :( I'm really fond of your explanation why it fits so well. I do love that interpretation of the pairing. :D

No happy song for them, though? Not even Potions Yesterday? :D

*grins* Well, Bright Eyes is just known as an emo kind of dude :D But whatever, Snape's an emo kind of bloke, and I just love the idea that spying would make it so even something relatively sincere had him going the love I sell you in the moonlight, by morning won't exist.

LOL. Potions Yesterday can be their happy song! I will try to think of a cuddly one - I do actually have a shameful, mad love for Snaco fluff.

I SO DID, LOL. Well, since the Snaco question was already asked :)

Okay, emo Ron/Draco is Falling by Florence & The Machine

I've fallen out of favour
And I've fallen from grace
Fallen out of trees
And I've fallen on my face
Fallen out of taxis
Out of windows too
Fell in your opinion
When I fell in love with you

Sometimes I wish for falling
Wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air
To give me some relief
Because falling's not the problem
When I'm falling I'm in peace
It's only when I hit the ground
It causes all the grief

Ever so emo! But it seems v thematically appropriate for Quidditch players, no?

Also, happy Ron/Draco! Steer by Missy Higgins. FINDING LOVE WITH RON LETS DRACO FIND A WAY OF STEERING HIS OWN LIFE ♥ I like to see this as doing that for Ron, too - he's even more in need of self-definition, in some ways - but a lot of the lines just strike me as ever-so-Draco. Maybe a duet :D

So now you finally know
That you control where you go
You can steer

So hold this feeling like a newborn
All the freedom surging through your veins
You have opened up a new door
So bring on the wind, fire and rain

It was always simple, not hidden hard
You've been played at a game
Called remembering your name
And you stuffed it up

But the search ends here
Where the night is clear
And your heart is fierce

Ooh, I love them both! The emo one is very slightly my favorite. I've always thought of the Ron/Draco relationship as being very impulsive, where they get all caught up in each other and don't consider the consequences until it's too late. Falling's not the problem, indeed!

I also think the Snaco song is totally, absolutely perfect, even though it's very depressing, haha.

Mmm, absolutely! The two of them just wrapping around each other as they fall from the sky and not realising until they hit the ground :D

Heh. Oh Snaco, you do so lend yourself to the angsty songs :)

Okay I took SO LONG to come up with something!! This is such girly folky rock - it's on the soundtrack of Practical Magic ffs - but I still think it kinda fits Peter.

Everyone you've ever known counts on you
Waits for you to come through
Don't you know that you're gonna break through

I have so, so many Harry/Draco songs!! But I am going to give a fun-yet-predictable answer to your fun-yet-predictable question (I know nothing of Pokemon, sorry):

Never thought you'd make me perspire
Never thought I'd do you the same
Never thought I'd fill with desire
Never thought I'd feel so ashamed

Me and the dragon can chase all the pain away
So before I end my day, remember
My sweet prince, you are the one

Um. Tell me the song of trio... Harry/Ron/Hermione. Or hell, James/Sirius/Remus works too.

I'll go with some background characters, Whistler (BtVS), Dalton (BtVS) or, if you'd rather an easier one, Dr. Abraham Erskine (CapA), pick your poison.

My answer to this one is embarrassing but I totally have one :DD This song always makes me picture DH-era Neville being his awesome cuddly self for poor exhausted Draco, only Neville has to go and be all ~heroic

the radio leaves me searching for your star
a constellation of frustration...

but as you sleep, and no one is listening
i will lift you off your feet, i'll keep you from sinking
don't you wake up yet, cause soon i'll be leaving you, soon i'll be leaving you
but you won't be leaving me

don't forget i'll hold your head, watch the night sky fading red
