Fanmix: Ruby - Fallen Angel  
Now this is my Ruby-centric fanmix. It took forever to find the songs I felt appropriate for her, which isn't a whole lot. But hey, quality over quantity. This is mainly an overview of what we've seen of her so far, and this includes 3.12 as well. I wanted to shine light over Ruby's fierceness as well as her vulnerability. Also, yes I will be doing other fandoms. This fanmix has been on queue for some time and it wasn't until this passed Thursday that I finally completed it.




Tracklisting

01. "Angels" by Within Temptation
Meet Ruby. She's a demon, but she's different from all the rest. She is a "fallen angel", sent on her own personal mission to protect the Winchester brothers, to protect and warn them of what the future holds in this upcoming war. She's a mysterious force, guiding them through the tough road when she has secrets of her own. Secrets she rather not tell, but is revealed anyway, and in the end there's a cautionary tale to be learned. What is her interest in the Winchesters? Why is she helping them, and for what purpose?

Sparkling angel
I believe
You are my saviour
In my time of need

Blinded by faith
I couldn't hear
All the whispers
The warning's so clear


02. "Witchy Woman" by Kristin Chenoweth
Her origin revealed, Ruby feels naked and exposed with her secret. She'd inadvertently soul her human soul all those centuries ago, did so in her nature as a witch, for reasons she'd rather not give. Either way, this piece of information brings the Winchesters to a halt, realizing that maybe there are others, other demons, that are just like Ruby who'd sold their souls to an untimely death.

Raven hair and ruby lips
Sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
She's a restless spirit on an endless flight
Woo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eye


03. "Tell Me Why" by Jakalope
She asks the same question even after all this time: "Why?" This is who she's become. No longer a person, no longer a human being; she's been discarded of herself and her soul has turned to black, however the only ounce of humanity left has kept her sanity. But where does this leave her, all alone to gain the trust of those who hunt those like her while betraying her own kind? Is this really the price she must pay, for all those centuries of pain and torture and turmoil?

It's funny how life can be the circles dance around me
Drawing a reminder of what I've done and who I've become
Sleeping my days without dreams, Waking a night without sleep
Missing the truth to lie the promises I heard I would keep
I'm lost in my paradise, the walls have built in my life
So tell me tell me will I die if I forget how to lie?


04. "The Devil's Feet" by Azure Ray
The faith in Lucifer is a belief system of most demons, but that is something Ruby cannot come to terms with. Though sometimes it feels like it is the Devil Himself who has made her suffer down in the pit, twisted and jabbed at her humanity and tried to make her into one of them. But she can't, and she won't ever give into it. Because if she does, she really will become what they are.

Through the rain to the Devil's feet
Now twenty years later to the place I return
Where I scorned the angels for a passion that burned
There set in the tree a knot twisted and turned
The face of a creature hell bound


05. "Before I'm Dead" by Kidney Thieves
She'd suffered through centuries of Hell. Literally. She's been beaten down and tortured, but she hasn't given up. She may have died but her humanity still remains, and she looks to the Winchesters, Sam specifically, to save the world from eternal damnation. She'll fight alongside them, even willing to sacrifice herself, to see the good guys win this war. If they fail? May whatever God they believe in have mercy on their souls.

Moon hangs around
A blade over my head
Reminds me what to do before I'm dead
Night consumes light
And all I dread
Reminds me what to do before I'm dead
