as some of you know already, music is pretty much essential for me whenever I need to write emotional scenes. I have dozens of playlists that fit each genre and even particular stories of mine, but I figured I could condense in one list the pieces I always go back to, and that help me get in a particular mood. :)

I rewrote most of the words to “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson to be fitting for Daddy (and I) and I’m gonna bring my ukulele over to his place this weekend and share it with him.
It’s so cheesy omg
life is calling; a mix to wake up too, a mix for getting ready. a ‘flip your hair and smile at the world’ mix. a mix to make you feel alive.

“All those things that you taught me to fear, I’ve got them in my garden now and you’re not welcome here.”
Another chronological mix that follows Anthy’s development
throughout the series, from a deeply cynical, trapped woman to one who bravely walks away. Album annotations give indication of what each song is addressed

Doing Reginald Today*: I was so overwhelmed by the horror of the whole debacle that I had to skip school for a day to read mystery novels, cry, and eat spearmint jelly candies. A fanmix for Roo Oliver, and days when you need to heal.

You pulled up in front of the motel you and the boys had stopped at a few hours ago. You had tried to convince them you should keep driving, that you had plenty of daylight left and could make it another 200 miles if you wanted, landing you in some small hick town but Dean went on and on about how he thought his Baby was making a strange noise and Sam wanted to stretch his legs. Cas said something about being tired; that had been strange, Cas didn’t get tired. So you’d relented and stopped in a bigger city, a place a bit more put together and traveled than most of the places you stopped in for the night. Even the motel was a little nicer–it didn’t make you feel like you had to check for bedbugs before going near the mattresses, at least.
