SO I LOVE THE CONCEPT OF THE “FANMIX YOURSELF” MEME but none of the existing ones out there have ever really caught my interest. SO! I made a new one that I will probably be using soon and thought I’d post it in case other people felt like it too!
ladles and jellyspoons, please welcome FANMIX YOUR CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: an alternative fanmix yourself meme!
honestly I don’t care if you want to mix the format of this up a bit, like if you want to include 5 songs for a certain prompt then that’s cool! you do you, that is the point of this meme. TELL YOUR STORY THROUGH MUSIC, FRIENDS.
if you do decide to do this, please tag any mixes posted with #fanmix your character development! I’d love to listen to whatever people do with this list of prompts!
List of prompts in text format for those that can’t view the above image:
1) a song for how you were as a child 2) a song for how you feel about your family 3) a song for the place you grew up in 4) a song for growing pains; bring ur teenage angst 5) a song that describes how you feel about love 6) a song that encapsulates your beliefs or spirituality 7) a song about your dreams and ambitions 8) a song for you feeling happy or peaceful 9) a song that describes how you react to adversity 10) a song for your frustrations, your anger, your sadness 11) a song for something significant that happened to you 12) a song that describes you as you are right now 13) a song for the place you live right now 14) a song about how you feel about your friends 15) a song that looks towards the future 16) a song that would play at the climax of ur character arc 17) an instrumental song that you feel sums you up
