Fanmix: Gaius/Six - Love & Madness  
Due to the massive amounts of BSG goodies that's coming out before S4 and also jonsing for S4 to be out like, right frakking now, my inspiration hit to make a fanmix. This one in particular is dedicated to one of my favorite pairings of the entire BSG universe: Gaius Baltar and Six. It's quite an unusual, but sensual pairing that it's hard to resist wanting them together, be it the Six that lives inside his head or Caprica-Six, the three-dimensional Six he had an affair with on Caprica before the attacks. As usual in my pattern of creating mixes, I tried to fit songs that matched each of their personalities and the feel of their overall relationship. Thus asking the very question: does loving someone so much lead to insanity, or is love itself madness?

Fanmix Tracklisting

01. "REV 22:20" by Puscifer
Gaius Baltar has been seduced by the Cylon model Number Six; he'd betrayed his people, unbeknownst to him by conspiring and allowing the Cylons to annihilate nearly the entire human population, but he is still haunted by the image of this woman that only he sees everywhere. Seducing and manipulating him, and even though he knows it's wrong he doesn't stop it. Because he loves her, and she loves him, and despite their odd relationship there is nothing he would like better than to be with her, even if it kills him to do so.

Jesus is risen, it's no surprise
Even he would martyr his mama to ride to hell between those thighs
The pressure is building, at the base of my spine
If I gotta sin to see her again then I'm gonna lie and lie and lie

She'll make you cry
I'll sell my soul, to be back in your bosom
Gladly now please suck me dry
And still you'll cry, to be back in her bosom
To do it again

02. "Outta My Head" by Ashlee Simpson
When you think of Gaius Baltar, you think of a brilliant scientist, but also when you meet him you'll see that he's kind of an oddball. Slightly out of his mind, if not just strange altogether. In truth he's just trying to conceal the fact that he has a Cylon living inside his head, tempting him and making him do things that she believes will lead him to his "destiny". Though sometimes, Gaius just wants to be left alone to himself without her influence (though that doesn't work as effectively, either, as he still comes off an insanely strange man).

Lately, I've got a problem with the way that you behave
You're too much, and all your questions don't leave me no time for me

And all I hear is ay ya ya ya ya
You're talking way too much
I can't even hear me now
All your noise is messing with my head
Get outta my head

03. "She Is My Sin" by Nightwish
She is the face of the angel, he holds the knowledge of the fate of the human race; together they are bound by sin, taking the long hard road through hell as she guides his hand through the thick and thin. No matter what happens, whether he is hated among his own kind, being threatened and tried for treason and crimes against humanity, he will forever be drowned in blasphemy because his Angel of God is his forever sin.

Take heed, dear heart
Once apart, she can touch nor me nor you
Dressed as one
A wolf will betray a lamb

Lead astray the gazers
The razors on your seducing skin
In the meadow of sinful thoughts
Every flower's perfect
To paradise with pleasure haunted by fear

04. "Siren" by Majandra Delfino
Both have been tempted and seduced by each other, giving into the love that is forbidden. Gaius fell into the trap of falling for a Cylon, even long afterwards he still loves her despite being tricked, and whether it's with the one he was with on Caprica or the imaginary one he sees everywhere he cannot deny his feelings. Six was only supposed to seduce him and complete her mission, but instead she fell into the temptation of feeling and experiencing human love and therefore, going against her own kind's rules, she feels strongly connected to Gaius Baltar. Both have been the tempted and the seducers, and both are willing to betray their own race to follow their hearts.

Caught in this trap, you sneer as I fall
My list of desires, your company is all
You come as a siren who lures me to betray
I have come as a temptress,
Unaware that I'd be losing at my game

05. "Angry Angel" by Imogen Heap
However, despite her best tendencies and his love, sometimes Gaius Baltar refuses to listen to the advice Six gives him or finds himself tired of her same charade. This ultimately leads to bad things, which Six plans on punishing him for his disobedient behavior in not believing in her or the Cylon God. He does learn, eventually.

And he always will, get his thrills, the only way he knows how
Well it might make you frown
But he loves, being that dove, roaming where he cares to go
To a state of mind that no-one knows

Over there stands my angry angel
And she’s shaking her head, in disgrace with me
Yeah over there stands my angry angel
And she’s frowning like hell, but I’m not feeling guilty

06. "Addicted" by Kelly Clarkson
Some say it's dangerous to fall in love, because you'll end up becoming addicted to it and you'll fall hard when it lets you down. Sometimes it'll lead you to madness, and sometimes it can lead to other destructive things altogether. This love addiction Gaius and Six have can be very lethal and can only lead to a downfall, but nevertheless they will cling to each other, because if they're going down they're going down together.

It's like I can't breathe
It's like I can't see anything
Nothing but you
I'm addicted to you
It's like I can't think
Without you interrupting me
In my thoughts, in my dreams
You've taken over me
It's like I'm not me

07. "Touched" by VAST
Theirs is an undying love, and whether they want to let the other go they know they cannot. Gaius feels nothing else matters while Six feels like he's slipping away, but even then they will never let each other go. Together they are forces of nature, and they will never find another that shares what they have.

The razors and dying roses
Plead I don't leave you alone
The demi-gods and hungry ghosts
God, God knows I'm not at home
I'll never find someone quite like you, again
I'll never find someone quite like you, again

08. "The Shape Of Things To Come" by Bear McCreary
Gaius and Six's theme. Instrumental.

Puscifer to Ashlee Simpson - what a jump. XD; This is excellent, though; everything's really fitting, especially that first track.

Hee. Well, I try to be diverse when creating these mixes, and that Ashlee Simpson song really does make me think of Baltar's craziness. So yeah. :) Thank you so much!

I love Gaius/Six so bad. I really really appreciate the show, even though it was kind of well made but the other characters (read: not Gaius or Six) didn't really make an impact on me. They just sort of faded next to the complexity and awesomeness that is Gaius/Six. I spent the first two season fast forwarding past every non-Gaius scenes or non-Six scenes. Gaius/Six is so awesomely complex and everything. ♥

The pairing is not popular? O_O Are you seriously? *please tell me my brain is broken and I misunderstood you :P*
Renée: Blair. Sitting pretty.rogueslayer452 on March 10th, 2008 07:50 pm (UTC)
Oh, it's popular. Most definitely. Just one of the many favored pairings on the show, really. :) In fact it's one of the many reasons why I became so addicted to BSG in the first place.

Gaius/Six are a twisted and complex couple, but so much love nonetheless. There's just something about their scenes and how they interact. And seriously it doesn't matter which Six he's with. Caprica-Six, his virtual Six or Gina, there is always some sort of different chemistry between them that it's impossible NOT to love them. ♥

Gaius/Six are so much love. Even though I don't really find the show in general that intriguing, the ship is definitely somewhere up on my top 10 ship list. They're kind of similar to John/Cameron in a way (except Gaius is totally full of himself - which I adore :D) except more adult and even more awesome and complex.

How did s3 leave them and do you know anything about S4? And this Razor business, anything there?:P I'm so out of the loop. The only way I'd start watching BSG again was if someone clipped together all Gaius/Six related scenes into miniepisodes for me to watch.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 10th, 2008 08:08 pm (UTC)
In S3 there was some issues between Gaius and Caprica-Six, and with the Six in his head pretty much convincing him that no, he isn't a Cylon, but he does have a destiny of sorts. Otherwise that's all they left us with since it was mainly about Gaius' trial in the end and Caprica-Six's involvement with the Hera prophecy. As far as S4 I know absolutely nothing. I tend to not get ahead of myself with those things. But I have my suspicions that Six and Gaius will mold together again, whether virtually or in the physical form.

Curiously, which Six is your favorite?

There was no Gaius/Six in Razor (and quite literally no Gaius at all), but there was Gina, the Six copy on Pegasus who apparently was Admiral Cain's lover before being discovered she was a Cylon agent.

I really do think you should try to watch the series or full episodes if you can, because everything is inter-connected with everything else and such a complex universe, much like Heroes in a way.

What an interesting mix of songs. Gaius/Six is definitely one of my favorite romantic relationships from what I've seen of the series, maybe only second to Helo/Sharon but damn, Adama/Roslin are so cute together.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 10th, 2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :D And I agree, I love their relationship too. They are my favorite by far, next to the adorableness of Helo/Sharon of course.

Adama/Roslin should make many babies together. For y'know, to perserve the human race and all that. *wink* I mean, they are both made of win and awesome, so we'd have a whole new generation of awesomeness right there.

Thanks!! Taking most of them. ^^
disturbed_muse on March 11th, 2008 02:45 pm (UTC)
I've always been a fan of the complexity that is Gaius/Six (although I'm more of an immensely huge Six fan who thinks they work brilliant together). Very nice song choices.
Renéerogueslayer452 on March 11th, 2008 08:57 pm (UTC)

Yeah, I'm the same way. Granted I love the craziness that is Gaius Baltar but he wouldn't be nearly as much fun without Six being around him to influence/manipulate/tempt/driving him mental.

Thank you so much! ♥
zekesmom42 on March 16th, 2008 03:08 pm (UTC)
This is really neat - I am a big Six/Gaius fan. I just made a fanmix for them the other day & I put that Kelly Clarkson song on it too! :D
Renée: Blair. Sitting pretty.rogueslayer452 on March 16th, 2008 11:02 pm (UTC)
It's quite a fitting song, is it not? :) Thank you so much for commenting!
Ardendancinpenguins on April 9th, 2008 04:12 am (UTC)
I've listened to the CD I made of this several times now. Astounding choices. Brava!
Renéerogueslayer452 on April 9th, 2008 08:38 am (UTC)
Thanks so much! I feel very flattered. :)
