my not so secret faves - the great gatsby by f. scott fitzgerald
so we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past
(feat. anthony mackie as jay gatsby)
would it change what you see; a brad/nate mix for still bloody (from last year’s war)
brad knows a lot of things. he knows that incompetency and bad decisions get marines killed. he knows that having faith in your officers is paramount. he also knows that he doesn’t know everything.
against a backdrop of iraq, california and new england, brad learns that some things need saying out loud, even if it seems like sometimes you’re the only person who hears them, that sometimes you take more of the war home than sand in your combat boots, and that sometimes it just doesn’t matter what you say, you are left alone with the things you’ve done.
home; phillip phillips
just know that you’re not alone, cause i’m gonna make this place your home
you were a kindness; the national
you made a slow disaster out of me
skip the charades; cold war kids
i’m the one acting like, acting like i’m so strong, you’re the one that’s acting like, acting like nothing’s wrong
and then you kissed me; the cardigans
you punched me right in the heart, and then you kissed me, and then you hit me
never meant to fail; alex lloyd
the war was last night, these wound are not healed
on fire; switchfoot
and i’m standing on the edge of me, and i’m on fire when you’re near me, and i’m on fire when you speak
help you; louden swain
you can dream it went a different way. close your eyes and fly the lie away. rewrite the ending of the play… if you just let me through, stick around for just another day, and help me help you
arms; christina perri
how many times will you let me change my mind and turn around?
we push and we shove and we hurt the ones we love, it’s a hard mistake. when we collide, we break.
november blues; the avett brothers
and if i told you i loved you, would it change what you see?
never quote discussed; terra naomi
let’s pretend that we have never loved before, touch my skin and i will kiss your lips and we can both ignore that feeling of wait
more of the coffeeshop au!
in a similar vein to this, but this time concerning julia and lee and luke OKAY
so we have high school drop out julia and cynical academic who is disillusioned with literally everything lee, and then we have luke, who supplies both wilson’s bakery and cillian’s coffeshop SO
i will pull a proper plot together re: these crazy kids eventually but today is not this day
remember tattoo artist stark and florist lea?
with bonus indie musician star-on-the-rise johnny
only this time, it’s a coffeeshop au
game of thrones au~
when i tell you can’t stop making shine aus, i need you to understand the extent to which i am not joking
this has probably been done before
DISCLAIMER: i have not seen pushing daisies but i know lee makes pies and wakes the dead SO lee and julia are childhood friends and probably sweethearts (???) and when he finds out she’s died he brings her back and they make pies and go on adventures together and keep bees and also there’s a dog
today is shit but these kids make it better somehow
cam is a florist from the upper east side, stark is a tattoo artist from the wrong side of town. musical numbers and dorkiness ensues
