BONUS: Exclusive cover art from three very lovely ladies - [livejournal.com profile] gembat, [livejournal.com profile] nilsi_pilsifan, and [livejournal.com profile] x5649. They also each made a small matching set of icons for their particular version of the mix, respectively.

Dedication: To my dearest internet wife, [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who - you're the one who inspired me to do this. Soul to soul, bb. Soul to soul. ♥

Notes: The inspiration for this came to me after reading an amazing, albeit very dark story from [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who. The story was called, The Forty-First Year, and it tells of the events which transpired while Castiel was searching for Dean in Hell.

Title: Heaven's Not Enough (aka "Salvation and Corruption")
Fandom: Supernatural
Spoilers: Through episode 4x10; Heaven and Hell
Characters/Pairing: Dean and Castiel
Tracks: 12 (runtime: 55.3 minutes)

Dedications: To [livejournal.com profile] breakinporcelan for being awesome (happy birthday, bb!). To [livejournal.com profile] tracy_loo_who for being one of the greatest fanfic writers out there when it comes to Dean/Castiel. And finally, to [livejournal.com profile] zed_pm for being the greatest friend a girl could ask for.

Notes: I hadn't originally planned on doing another mix until after the first of the year. But after being hit with the emotional trauma of loosing someone dear to me, I had to loose myself in something - something that would help me deal with the pain, along with the guilt. And this mix, here, is the result of that grief.

Title: Dance with the Devil (aka "Dark Times Lie Ahead")
Fandom: Supernatural
Spoilers: Through episode 4x07; It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester
Characters: Sam, Dean, Castiel and Uriel
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Tracks: 14 (runtime: 55.7 minutes)

Dedications: To my partner in crime and best friend, [livejournal.com profile] zed_pm . And to my beloved guardian angel, [livejournal.com profile] ace_of_spades6 . She's got quite a bit going on in her homelife, so send her your prayers.

Notes: This is it... My final mix of the year.

This one took me quite some time to compile. I also hadn't planned on including Uriel in the mix at first - just Sam, Dean and Castiel (my ultimate OT3). But after seeing him in the episode It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester, I just couldn't resist.

Unlike the vast majority of the fandom, I didn't see Uriel as being a 'dick'. Instead, I saw him as a strong, fearless, stern and proud warrior - someone whom you would definitely want on your side on the battlefield. And so what if he's got a taste for the theatrics? He was still able to instill fear in Sam. In other words, this Angel knows how to get the job done. Which is exactly what you need when you're fighting in the war to end all wars. 

As for my song choices, I wanted to go for something that truly sounded apocalyptic. I also wanted the entire mix to be dark, with an underlying theme of hope for the future. That's why the final track is Robert Kral's Home. It's a short but bittersweet instrumental piece that's poignant in the regard that it suggests maybe - just maybe - our boys will make it through this in one piece. However, I don't foresee it. I've got the strongest feeling that this series is going to leave every single one of us broken.

Special Note: This is the only fanmix I have ever compiled that my mother literally said "wow" when she listened to it. That right there, ladies and gentlemen, should tell you something because she's one of my toughest critics.


And at his feet, they'll cast their golden crowns )
