Fandom labels them as the quiet, manly guys in the background, the ones who blend with the wallpaper more often than not, contenting themselves with watching the spotlight rather than being in the spotlight. They're the steady couple that's been together since ice age, unofficially married and as domestic as they can get without slipping into cheesiness. Tinhat aside, they even said they're the mom (Bob) and dad (Ray) of the band, the backbone, while Mikey, Gerard and Frank are their kids - so what's not to love about them?

With my mix I obviously followed the AU version of the band, starting from the van days and Bob working for MCR as tech until now, as they get ready to release the new album. I tried to show how their relationship works, showing also the occasional lows that happen in life together with moments of fun.

It took me a little while to figure out what direction to go with this mix, until I heard Crush'd by Say Anything. That's when I found my centerpiece. Crush'd, which I used for the title as well, fits exactly what I wanted to get across with this mix. This playful, immature, deep love based on an even better friendship. I wanted to find other songs which fit that feel. I tried to create a storyline with the songs. Alex and Jersey meet and become fast friends, from there they have crazy adventures and realize, hey, I'm totally into you. From there it gets to be a little too much and the morning after gets awkward. But they realize what they have is something special, so they find each other, admit they're in love, and it's happily ever after. So I hope I managed to get that across, and I hope you enjoy!

You're an artist, I'm a silly jerk.Collapse )

Think of this mix as a storybook, this is a story of falling hard in love, hot summer night escapades, heartbreak and pining (and angst!). Proceed with caution. From Pete's POV.


Right this wayCollapse )
 
 
Okay, so maybe Brendon/Audrey isn't my OTP, not technically, but I wanted to do something I hadn't before, so I did. This is not some really romantic mix of love songs. I actually don't have any idea how to exactly describe it, but I think it fits for what their relationship was - kind of fucked up, a little needy, and inexperienced.
So, I hope someone will enjoy it!

When I signed up to do this challenge, I knew two things: that my mix just had to be Frank/Gerard, and that I was terrible at mixing! I still know both of those things, but I decided to have a little fun with it instead. So, I present, with no further ado,Collapse )
 
 
 
For my mix I chose to do a kind of narrative storyline. The story follows an AU version of the band in which Frank and Gerard have always been in love. Everything else in the band happens: Gerard getting sober, Gerard's weird thing with Bert, Frank's illnesses. Then during "current" time they get over their issues, their pining, their mutual angst and get together. Enjoy!
