David & Jack: Sewing Hearts
Notes: AU in which we ignore Biblical canon end and skip fixing the show's because that wasn't the mix I wanted to make! In my happy end fantasy, Jack doesn't lose his shit and go tyrant on Gilboa, but Silas still takes back the crown and imprisons him. His betrayal of the country's favorite son, the one they looked to in their time of need with Silas gone, his increase in bastardhood and tyranny, and his very obvious descent into madness and blasphemy, turns the country against him. David returns and kills him. He frees Jack, instating and backing him as king. Jack makes him Consort. Together, they rule. With Michelle as their Queen, obviously, but she would need A SEPARATE MIX for each of them so oh god I can't just listen to Iron & Wine for an hour, no really. This mix is where Jack and David feel each other and their new roles out.
Shh, let me enjoy my really overthought fantasies.
I also have a lot of Feelings about how good a fit Juno Reactor is for Jack. Get out of my life, you horrible jerk. No don't cry, come back, let me stroke your hair, there you go darling.
...What were we talking about?
post-series au mix
Sufjan Stevens - He Woke Me Up Again
And I'm still asleep
But you woke me up to be holy
The start of something new.
The American Dollar - Anything You Synthesize
But give me something real.
Kaiser Chiefs - Love's Not A Competition But I'm Winning
I know, I've said all this and that you've heard it all before,
The trick is getting you to think that all this was your idea,
And that this was everything you've ever wanted, out of here
Jack doesn't let go of that edge of competition and rivalry with David, King's Consort or no, he just changes the rules.
Sufjan Stevens - All The Trees Of The Field Will Clap Their Hands
I heard from the trees a great parade
And I heard from the hills a band was made
Will I be invited to the sound?
Will I be a part of what you've made?
God. King. To David, they're sometimes one and the same.
God Is An Astronaut - All is Violent, All is Bright
Playing for keeps, playing fast and loose. It's good to be King except when it's not.
Juno Reactor - Immaculate Crucifixion
Making a mess of things, both so used to the machinations of the crown.
Electric President - Good Morning, Hypocrite
Live a little, talk a lot; it's the way this goes.
I've come to fear the little knives beneath their well-pressed clothes.
Their arms are reaching; reach is spreading through the neon glow.
Their mouths are moving, but their voices sound like telephones.
The traffic hums; the traffic grumbles near my old window.
The street lights flicker; glow and hover like suspended snow.
I used to watch the moon retreat and wonder where it goes.
Now I just wonder why my head is overrun with ghosts
Taking a step back to get his bearings and falling out of love-- with the hand he's been playing.
Barcelona - First Floor People
This hole is deeper by the hour
My hands are bleeding I spin around
I’ll throw away my ugly plans
They’re too tired to push me anywhere but down
So who am I to fool now if you’re gone, you’re gone?
So Jack stops playing games altogether.
Pixie Lott - Use Somebody
Painted faces fill the places I can't reach
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Coming back home.
Iron & Wine - Such Great Heights
And I have to speculate
That God himself did make us
Into corresponding shapes
Like puzzle pieces from the clay
And letting the other all the way in this time.
the tumbled sea - untitled for piano
"If I sew my heart to his."
