have you ever heard the story of andromeda?

Since I finished Downton Abbey, I've been putting this together—I have no idea how to fic them, but these two ate my heart in ways we haven't seen a new ship do since the advent of Spike/Dru. Unacceptable business in this heart, but fact is, OTPery always makes me productive. So: there is music to be had, naturellement. I have to do something with the extent to which these two ate my heart whole, something other than rewatching and flailing and crying and flailing and flailing and flailing.

(This tracks the chronology of them; it leans toward Matthew's POV in the beginning and leaves off very much embedded in Mary's by the end.)



you must pay no attention to the things i say
(a mary/matthew fanmix)

i need some fine wine, and you, you need to be nicer • the cardigans
Well here's a good man and a pretty young girl
Trying to play together somehow...
I need some fine wine and you, you need to be nicer
For the good times and the bad times that we'll have

jackie, dressed in cobras • the new pornographers
Look, we've seen this kind of thing before
Jackie flirts with cobras at the door
Don't live your life inside a mirror
Flirt with glances
New York City, you've had your chances
Yes, you've had them

if she wants me • belle & sebastian
Someone above has seen me do all right
Someone above is looking with a tender eye
Upon her face, you may think you're alone
but you may think again
If I could do just one near perfect thing I'd be happy
They'd write it on my grave, or when they scattered my ashes
On second thoughts I'd rather hang about
and be there with my best friend, if she wants me


the dress looks nice on you • sufjan stevens
I can see a lot of life in you
I can see a lot of bright in you
And I think the dress looks nice on you
I can see a lot of life in you

fever dream • iron & wine
Some days, like rain on the doorstep
She'll cover me
With grace in all she offers
Sometimes I'd like just to ask her
What honest words
She can't afford to say


the book of love • the magnetic fields
The book of love is long and boring
No one can lift the damn thing
It's full of charts and facts and figures
And instructions for dancing but
I love it when you read to me and
You can read me anything

honey in the sun • camera obscura
I'm determined to protect my feelings, to disguise
And when I said I didn't love you, I told you a lie
Because there is no one above you though I try
Would you laugh at the time I spent calling your name
Over and over and over and over again?
I wish my heart was cold, but it's warmer than before
I wish my heart was as cold as the morning dew
But it's as warm as saxophones and honey in the sun for you


oh, sweetheart • shout out louds
Oh, sweetheart
Whatever you say I take it back,
Whatever you say I didn't mean that
Oh, sweetheart
They say I don't listen no more

madder red • yeasayer
Because lately I've wronged you
And not been on your side, love
Maybe I have been dumb
Please don't ask me why
I turn away just when you want me
And I know that home is where you want me
There's not much for me there

a better son/daughter • rilo kiley
Your ship may be coming in
You're weak but not giving in
To the cries and the wails of the valley below
And your ship may be coming in
You're weak but not giving in
And you'll fight it
You'll go out fighting all of them

pretty forever • the national
What would she do?
If she could kick time?
Would she go back?
Her arms were mine
Would you go back to four weeks ago?
And tell her everything
Whoever everything
How could she pick
And how could she say
She's already made too many mistakes


cold war • janelle monáe
I'm trying to find my peace
I was made to believe there's something wrong with me
And it hurts my heart
Lord have mercy, ain't it plain to see?
This is a cold war
You better know what you're fighting for

 

-
enjoy!

(O SHOW. COME BACK TO ME, GET THESE KIDS SORTED, GET THESE KIDS MARRIED, OR I WILL BE VERY PUT OUT INDEED, where by "put out" I mean DEAD. SO.)
