fanmix: Our Unholy War (Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works the series)

Hah! Just made it! Entry for waywardmixes Round #30: magic

Both covers are taken from artwork for the show, just with text added... because when you've got pix this gorgeous, why not use them? This is also the quickest set of covers I've made in ages... maybe it's the artwork, but these are both my first draft - I was just really happy with the font and colours and blocking I chose first try!

as always, zip on mediafire

fanmix: Young Wizards (Nita & Kit: I know the song of your heart)

For waywardmixes again! This time, the theme was 'first fandoms'.

A friend/ship mix for Nita and Kit was the second idea I have EVER had for a fanmix – no, really, most of this tracklist is the second entry in my potential fanmixes file. I’ve edited the file more than a few times, but the entry after this is for my fave anime, Full Metal Panic!, which came out in 2002, though I think I discovered it a couple of years after that. But yes, I’m sure I’ve had this particular fanmix on the boil for around thirteen years.

Young Wizards isn’t quite my first true fandom – that honor goes to Agatha Christie, or maybe Doctor Who – but this was the first fandom I found stuff about when I when first ventured into the strands of the World Wide Web (anyone else remember when it was called that?)… sometime in 1996, I think.

Again experimenting with a single-image cover for 8tracks purposes. And I really will get around to actually uploading something any time now (whistles innocently) In this case, I just found the cover of the first book and did some crop, cover, and type. Yes, this is a scene from the book. Not quite as good as riding a zombie dinosaur, but it's still a pretty awesome moment, isn't it?

I know the song of your heart
Nita Callahan and Kit Rodriguez: partners in wizardry, friendship and other stuff.

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words - unknown

fanmix: Junk Science (Walter/Paige of Scorpion)

So after just over a year, waywardmixes is back!!! So for the #28, they chose the theme 'shiny and new' - or mixes about shows, books, movies, or other fandoms that have been released since July 2014, when the last round was supposed to end.

It was a tough call between two of my shiny new fandoms, Daredevil and Scorpion, but the second won out because... well, I thought that someone else would be doing Daredevil anyway, because it's been such a phenom. But at least I can do it later!

I picked a ship!mix for Walter & Paige, because they're the couple I'm shipping right now that have actual progress, albeit at a very slow burn (Matt and Karen are still very much in the friend zone. But the Avocado trio are an awesome friendzone!), and aren't currently sunk in the Bermuda Triangle in canon (unlike SkyeWard from Agents of SHIELD, or Victor and Lily from Penny Dreadful). Although from what little I'm seen of FDTD season 2, I have some actual hope for Seth and Kate. But given that show, I'm just hoping they both make it to the end of the season alive....

Anyway, onto the mix! The explanatory bit for waywardmixes is below the covers, with the full tracklisting below that.

I was trying to get some of the pics to overlap each other at strategic points; I thought it looked interesting. Not sure how well it turned out. (sigh) I really need to properly learn how to use photoshop or something and lift my graphics game.
