Her story is a series of vignettes featuring one of my Hawkes, Lady, and Merrill and shows their very rocky romance. Merrill is doing the things she thinks she has to do, and Lady wants very much to protect her, even if she doesn’t need it. Of course, you can’t protect people from themselves.

It’s been a few months since I made this mix. I broke one of my own mix rules in the making of it (using multiple artists more than once), but I still am totally in love with the music I used. The cover art on the other hand. Not so much. I like it, but I wish I’d done something else with it. But, it inspired the really great story that was written for it, so I suppose it achieved it’s purpose. :)

Summary: In the wake of the Landsmeet, Alistair and Melisande Cousland struggle to come to grips with their decisions and duties and meet the Blight.
For whatifthewolvescome, who requested a playlist based on this idea:
I want a playlist for an adult Red Riding Hood who ran off with the Alpha Big Bad Wolf to hunt demons and save people. You know, the family business.
6 more mixes I’ve uploaded. 5 of the 6 of them haven’t been put here on Tumblr, so they might be new to most of you. 2 of them are Dragon Age, 1 each of Dresden Files, Sherlock Holmes, Forever Knight, and Mary Poppins. XD Enjoy: http://8tracks.com/cherithe
Getting really close to having everything uploaded.
Added 6 more mixes to my page at 8tracks: http://8tracks.com/cherithe
I’m one short of having up all of the mixes that are currently listed on my Tumblr. Some of my older ones will have to be dug up from wherever I hid them, but I’ll be putting them up tonight or tomorrow.
The downloads for these won’t be going anywhere, so if there’s a link listed on my fanmix page here on Tumblr, it’ll still work. But for people that don’t want to download, hopefully this is a good substitute. XD
For those that haven’t found them yet, I wanted to tell people that I’m in the process of putting my mixes up on 8tracks.com. You can find my profile here: http://8tracks.com/cherithe
These are the mixes that are on there so far. My plan is to upload all of the ones that are already on Tumblr, and then really soon, I’m going to start putting up all the ones that came before my fandom time on Tumblr. There’s several other Dragon Age ones, and then some others for previous fandoms. I might also just start storing some of my personal playlists on there.
My extremely overdue DAHC gift for bioticbootyshaker. There was so much happening before and after Christmas that I was not able to get this finished up until today. Many, many apologies to Liz for my tardiness with her gift. I hope the finished product makes up for the the wait.
Where We’ve Never Been: A Sebastian/Fenris fanmix
Notes: I did my very level best to pick songs not only appropriate to Sebastian and/or Fenris, but to be really selective about the lyrics in regards to gender as well. The more fanmixes I make the more I get really annoyed at the lack of gender choices - or to even sort of allude to same sex gender choices. So, picking songs with male singers that didn’t reference a ‘she’ or ‘her’ was hard (though believe me when I say, I found it easier than the opposite).
Also I tried to stay away from songs that were overly or unnecessarily angsty. Because this is not a story of angst and separation. This is a tale of two men coming to terms with themselves and each other. And their gradual, eventual journey to love.

My fanmix for Prism Elf’s DABB Wave One story: Fire and Lightning. (Link to come as soon as possible.) It was a lot of fun to work on this mix and I hope you all enjoy it!

My Hands Are Bound - A Leandra (/Malcolm) Fanmix
I’ve hinted at this mix a few times as I’ve been working on it. It started with Scars on 45 - Give Me Something, and then the whole mix just sort of built itself in a matter of days.
My idea for this was mostly centered about Malcolm and Leandra’s early relationship. When the Hawke kids were little, he must have been gone a lot. I don’t think their relationship was as rosy as it’s sometimes portrayed. Someone with his abilities, and his contacts, he’s bound to be gone often to help where he can. That leaves Leandra at home, on her own. It had to be lonely. And for a pair that had this sort of passionate affair, her leaving home - for a mage - I don’t know. It all feels more tough that we want to think of them.
In my head, this mix sort of spans their entire relationship, up to and after Malcolm’s death and then close to Leandra’s.
Anyhow. I hope you enjoy it.

What Lies She Tells | a F!Hawke/Isabela/Fenris fanmix for The Duelling Tophat who won a fanmix from me during my last milestone contest. I made a very concerted effort when putting this together to make it very female heavy, focusing for most of it on Marian/Isabela. I’m pretty happy with the results. Hopefully you are too. <3

Okay, it’s that time again! Typically I don’t like mentioning how many lovely and wonderful people there are following me because it’s not about the number, but that I think you’re all amazing. That said, there are a lot more of you following me now than there were before and that demands celebration. With that in mind it’s FANMIX GIVEAWAY time.
Restrictions & Entry:
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’re probably wise to the subjects near and dear to my heart. Fanmixes though - I’m willing to do a fanmix for just about any subject/fandom, as long as you provide me with some background info. In fact, these are my favorite sort of mixes to do. If you want a random idea of my musical tastes you can check out my fanmixes here on Tumblr and there’s a few more non-DA ones at my LiveJournal.
Just like or reblog (no more than once a day, please) this post and I’ll pick the winner next Sunday, the 16th.
