In Written - a soundtrack

Here's the sitch. I'm missing my real life rpg. (if there is something that can be called a real life rpg? Isn't it like oxymoron, or sth?)
But between my studies, cala_jane's work and khali_khan's school... we can't make it work.
So I've commited this.
An Original Character Soundtrack. You don't go much further in Mary-Sueing.

But I've figured that since I've done it, I may as well share the songs with you guys... the additional information as well as the behind-the-scenes notes will be lost on the majority of you, but it's intended for Cala and Khali anyway....

So, let's get on with the show:

Bethany Rafferty. Her middle name could be Mary Sue, but it's Maude.
She is a Watcher, of course. Couldn't be different, what with her being my character, and all. Working with the Slayer Hate Kallias... uhm, Heather Kallias... Uhm... Hate? What is the official personality now?

They Might Be Giants - Don't Let's Start
D, World destruction / Over and overture / N, do I need apostrophe / T, need this torture

Lara Fabian - I Am
All that I am is what I was and who I'll be  /  Here where I stand is all I have  /  And what you see  /  Take this empty hands  /  This is all I am
This is the unoficial theme of 'Hate the Vampire Slayer'. I did a video with credits and all to this song *L*
What can I say? I'm a dork.

Death Car for A Cutie - Passenger Seat
I roll the window down  /  and then begin to breathe in  /  the darkest country road  /  and the strong scent of evergreen  /  from the passenger seat as you are driving me home
It all started with that ride, didn't it? Actually, that first Beth - Giles scene was supposed to be in a library. And it was supposed to be in a flashback, not in a time-travel ep. But it worked how it worked, and I suppose it worked fine...

Anthony Stewart Head - Talk to you
It lasts for a heartbeat  /  But it's such a feeling of being one  /  When we talk on the phone  /  You make me complete

There had to be an ASH song in the mix, right? And look! It's a phone song! *giddy*

John Mayer - Split Screen Sadness
One hand on the trigger of a telephone  /  Wonderin' when the call comes  /  Where you say it's alright  /  You got your heart right
The second of the 'phone songs'. What can I say? It's the greatest phone-romance I've roleplayed. Well, the only one, but shh.

Beck - Lost Cause
There's too many people you used to know  /  They see you coming they see you go  /  They know your secrets and you know theirs  /  The town is crazy but nobody cares

K.D. Lang - Hallelujah
It goes like this  /  The fourth, the fifth  /  The minor fall, the major lift  /  The baffled king composing Hallelujah

I've made a video to this song, too, only in other version. I like this one though.

Rascal Flatts - Bless the Broken Road
I set out on a narrow way many years ago  /  Hoping I would find true love along the broken road  /  But I got lost a time or two  /  Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
a time or two...? Ya know that Beth/Giles is a recent development that wasn't supposed to happen? I cross my heart, it was supposed to end with 'the French Kiss' ep. But you (cala and khal) seemed to like the soap-operaness and the comedy that was Beth/Giles... So I've decided to give it a go, and have my Mary Sue fun.
But well,  Scott was the first on a list to be with Beth... we know how did *that* turned out. And Roger somehow ended up a stupid prick, have no idea how.. *L*

Straylight Run - Sympathy for the Martyr
You just can't...ever win  /  convinced there's a war on, it's everybody versus you  /  convinced that your critics are watching  /  and you've always got  /  you've always got something to prove

Kelly Clarkson - Miss Independednt
Miss independent  /  Miss self-sufficient  /  Miss keep your distance  /  Miss unafraid  /  Miss out of my way

Damien Rice - Blower's Daughter
And so it is  /  The shorter story  /  No love, no glory  /  No hero in her sky

Aimee Mann - Wise Up
It's not  /  What you thought  /  When you first began it  /  You got  /  What you want  /  Now you can hardly stand it though

Eels - I need some sleep
I need some sleep  /  You can't go on like this  /  I try counting sheep  /  But there's one I always miss

Ah, the Great Insomnia... that was the fun thing to play...

Ben Folds Five - Magic
From the back of your big brown eyes  /  I knew you'd be gone as soon as you could  /  and I hoped you would  /  we could see that you weren't yourself

Tasmin Archer - Somebody's Daughter
I'm breaking the frame  /  each day's the same  /  you should be somebody's daughter  /  day after day
No, No Daddy Issues, why do you ask?
On the Behind-the-scenes notes. Beth's father was supposed to be called Michael, and be dead. With Excalibur storyline came the other idea... Oh, plus I got a kick from the singer being name Archer *L*

No Doubt - Magic's in the Make-up
Can you tell I'm faking it?  /  But I want to be myself. /  A counterfeit disposition  /  Can't be good for my health

Lisa Loeb - I control the Sun
I pushed every button  /  I pulled every string  /  I've tried every lever  /  I've tried everything

Phantom Planet - Know it All
You place something hight enough  /  The harder it can fall  /  But you knew that  /  You're a know it all

Built to Spill - You Were Right
You were right when you said  /  We're still running against the wind  /  And life goes on after the thrill of living is gone  /  You were right when you said  /  This is the end

K's Choice - Every Breath You Take
Every breath you take  /  Every move you make  /  Every bond you break  /  Every step you take  /  I'll be watching you
Can't do a soundtrack for a Watcher without that official Watcher (or rather, Stalker) song, can I? So, here it is, less known cover by K's Choice.

Dresden Dolls - Perfect Fit
I used to be the bright one  /  Smart as a whip  /  Funny how you slip so far when  /  teachers don't keep track of it

That would be all. Tune in next week for Morrigan Anderson's soundtrack.
