FANMIX: the Big Bang job part 2: We live in the dark because we like it that way (Eliot/Parker)

So for my next trick... I will make a white rabbit disappear!

Well, no - I decided to do an Eliot/Parker fanmix, because I've always shipped them (no offense to Hardison - I like you too! Just think she's a better match with Eliot). I was a bit worried no one would pick it, but i did get someone and she has also written a great fic! (I've been really lucky that way so far, with reverse bangs.)

The title is a quote from one of the Nightside books by Simon R Green - actually, I think it might be a paraphrase, pretty sure I got it off an LJ icon originally. I picked it because, well, it sort of sums up one of the primary reasons I think Eliot and Parker would work as a couple; they're familiar with the darkest parts of themselves - they've lived in those parts of themselves, and come out the other side. They're willing to cross lines that Nate, Sophie and Hardison won't even consider.

We live in the dark because we like it that way (an Eliot/Parker mix)
(title from Simon R Green)

Theme from ‘The Pink Panther’ – Henry Mancini (Parker)

Rattlesnake Smile – Christian Kane (Eliot)
Well I used to have a soft Southern glowing face
And I used to leave my heartaches with the chase
When you get stung with a heart of a little child
Well that's how you get that rattle snake smile

Well you better keep your distance from this stinger and shape I'm in.
Now no one better touch me right now in this cold blooded thick skin
Aww I think you better run real fast when you hear that rattling sound
Well you better run real fast man or this one's gonna knock you down

White Rabbit – Emiliana Torrini (Parker pov, with bonus points for reference to her Alice White alias)
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.

Call Alice
When she was just small

Theme from Harry’s Game – Clannad (Eliot between Damien Moreaux and Leverage; if you know the storyline of 'Harry's Game', I think it adds an extra note of despair to Eliot's headspace at the time. Part of me wishes we'd found out what exactly Eliot had to do for Moreaux that has clearly left him permanently damaged - but considering the stuff he's actually talked about, a bigger part of me is glad we never found out.)

(lyrics sung in Gaelic – English translation)
I will go east and go west
From whence came the moon and the sun

The moon and the sun will go
And the young man with his reputation behind him

I will go wherever he came from
The young man with his reputation behind him

The Hunter gets captured by the Game – Massive Attack fea Tracy Thorn (Parker)
Secretly I’ve been tailing you
Like a fox that preys on a rabbit
Had to get you and so I knew
I had to learn your ways and habits
(Oooh) You were the catch that I was after
I looked up and I was in your arms
And I knew that I was captured

What's this whole world coming to?
Things just ain't the same
Any time the hunter gets captured by the game

Assassin – John Mayer (Eliot)
I work in the dead of night.
When the roads are quiet
No one is around, to track my moves.
Rracing the yellow lights
To find the gate is open, she's waiting in the room.
I just step on through.

You get in, you get done and then you get gone
You never leave a trace, or show your face, you get gone
Should've turned around and left before the sun came up again
But the sun came up again

I was a killer, was the best they'd ever seen
I'd steal your heart before you ever heard a thing
I'm an assassin and I had a job to do
Little did I know that girl was an assassin too

The Darkest Star – Depeche Mode (Parker to Eliot)
Oh you dark one
Eternal outsider
Caught in the spider's web you've spun

Oh you blind one
Gentle and kind one
Seeing the world as a loaded gun

I don't want you to change anything you do
I don't want you to be someone else for me
Stay as you are... the Darkest Star

Dangerous – Depeche Mode (Eliot to Parker)
The things you do aren't good for my health
The moves you make you make for yourself
The means you use aren't meant to confuse
Although they do - they're the ones that I would choose

And I wouldn't want it any other way
You wouldn't let me anyway
The lies you tell aren't meant to deceive
They're not there for me to believe

Keep the car running – Goo Goo Dolls (Both)
We are, we are, we are the start of something new
Close your eyes and come with me and just hold onto
We are, we are, we are the only thing that's true
Just believe it's you and me and know that we can't lose

Tired of waiting around
Now what are we becoming?
Keep the car running

The only answer I know
Never taking it slow
Just it keep it coming
Keep the car running

You get me – Michelle Branch (Parker pov, then Eliot pov)
So I'm a little left of center
So I'm a little out of tune
Some say I'm paranormal
So I just bend their spoon
Who wants to be ordinary
In a crazy, mixed-up world?
I don't care what they're sayin'
As long as I'm your girl

So what if I see the sunshine
In the pouring rain
Some people think I'm crazy
But you say it's okay

You've seen my secret garden
Where all of my flowers grow
In my imagination
Anything goes

'Cause you get me
When nobody understands
You come and take the chance, baby
You get me
When none of the pieces fit
You make sense of it
You get me
You look inside my wild mind
Never knowing what you'll find
And still I want you all the time
Yeah, I do
'Cause you get me
