Fanmix: Six/Castiel - Even The Mighty Shall Fall  
"When God's anger awakens, even the mighty shall fall..."
~ Sharon "Athena" Agathon, BSG

They thought they knew their mission, knew where they stood; even when questioning orders they thought Heaven had been honorable to their own kin. Unfortunately, things got turned around for the worst as horrible truths were revealed, leaving much dishonesty, distrust and betrayal. Now, two angels from Heaven are struggling with their own faith as trying to stand tall as they watch their beloved home crumble before their eyes, silently praying for the Lord's guidance, if He ever answers them...

Notes: With this mix, being my second Six/Castiel creation, I wanted to take it into a completely different direction, something thematic and melancholic in terms of the mood with the characters. They've both come to realize that their home is no longer their home anymore, that they've been deceived and betrayed by Heaven; everything they've done has been a facade to conceal the truth of their superior's own intentions concerning the endgame. The sense of loss, of pain and uncertainty, I wanted to bring that into this mix in signifying the lost hope and dwindling faith of these two characters. The last track represents that last spark of hope that, with each other and the help of their human companions, there may be that silver lining after all, even if it's bittersweet with a bit of vengeance on their end.

01. "The Rapture" by X-Ray Dog
02. "O Fortuna" by Opera Babes
Sors immanis, et inanis (Fate - monstrous, and empty)
rota tu volubilis (you whirling wheel)
status malus, vana salus (you are manevolent, well-being is vain)
semper dissolubilis (and always fades to nothing)
obumbrata, et velata (shadowed, and veiled)
michi quoque niteris (you plague me too)
03. "Massive Dose" by Sonic Librarian
If you could take a dream
And make it real
Who would you be? Who would you see?
I'm floating free now
Falling slowly
I can see you, from up here
04. "A Bittersweet Tragedy" by Beseech
I am blinded and fooled by fear
As puppets in a cold dark play
We are trapped inside a cage
Until this downward spiral ends
05. "En Vie" by Apocalyptica ft. Marta Jandova
[translated from French]

Why let the chance
When our dreams lost the memory?
Should you be as stupid?
That history repeats itself
Is it not sufficient to see?
A little less evil
Is it not sufficient to want?
And this world gone to war
06. "Virtue and Vice" by Delain
Heaven denied us its Kingdom
Tell me where we've gone wrong
Oh, fortitude, I do like you
But I only speak when spoken to
Heaven forgive, the mess I meant
Temperance, why do I cast
Your prudence to the wind?
07. "Minor Heaven" by Tarja Turunen
Light a way for me to walk on,
From the ashes to the sky
Burn the thorns so I can hold on
Trust in me I know I'm right
I'm know I'm gone too far
Leave them where they are
08. "Something Dark Is Coming" composed by Bear McCreary
09. "In The Air Tonight" by Full Blown Rose
Well, I remember, I remember don't worry
How could I ever forget
It's the first time, the last time we ever met
But I know the reason why you keep your silence up
No, you don't fool me
The hurt doesn't show, but the pain still grows
It's no stranger to you or me

this is amazing sweetheart!

Thank you, bb! :D You have no idea how long it took to organize, but it's done!

Cool. Great work!

I'm so excited that the DVD of The Plan is coming out October 27th. This means either that we're getting the DVD before it airs or that it airs sooner than November.
Renée: Six. Angel of God.rogueslayer452 on July 18th, 2009 02:03 am (UTC)
Thank you. :)

Either way is fine by me. I just can't wait to see it (and it's making me wonder, if the DVD is going to be an "extended and unrated" version than what will be aired, like with Razor).

Omg, what a great OTP and it had never even occurred to me before! I LOVE this idea! I haven't listened to the mix yet, but I was just excited and had to comment. :D
Renée: Six. Satisfied.rogueslayer452 on July 18th, 2009 07:52 am (UTC)
Hee, they've been my love for quite some time now. Two fierce characters being fiercer together? What could be better! ;D Six/Castiel = crack!OTP, for reals.

Hope you enjoy the mix!

whooza! The cover art looks really beautiful...I just had to comment even though I'm not a fan of that pairing.
I'm snagging some of the songs.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Peaceful.rogueslayer452 on July 18th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! The artwork was the toughest part, I kept having to reset and start over. But I'm very pleased with how this turned out, and I'm happy that you like it. :)

You're very well bb, enjoy! ♥

This looks really good! Do you possibly have a zip of the whole thing together?
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on July 18th, 2009 10:18 pm (UTC)
I didn't make one, but I could try if you'd like me to.

It is my deepest wish, from my heart of hearts, that Tricia Helfer is re-cast in the Show. As an angel. The Archangel Gabriel, to be specific. They could pull if off I am sure and it would be awesome for that character to be on the Show. I would just die if it happened, it would be a good death...

But I digress. This looks wonderful, will snag!
Renée: Six. Luxuriating.rogueslayer452 on July 18th, 2009 11:12 pm (UTC)
Major word. That is my biggest wish, as well, since Tricia is extremely talented and just fierce enough to be an archangel. Why not recast her? It would be perfect and just awesome, plus her acting alongside Misha Collins? Mmm, yes please, screens will s'plode from the hotness. ;D But alas, we can only hope and wish through such fanon creations. If only our dreams could come true, eh?

But thank you for the comment! Enjoy the mix. :)

Sounds wonderful:)

Oh, bb, you've captured both of them gorgeously with these songs -- their struggle, their doubts, their faith, their sadness, their hope -- and given me lots of new artists to look into at the same time. I love this mix, and now I just wish my desktop computer would turn on because these crappy laptop speakers are not doing this justice at all!

I especially love that you used one of Bear's tracks, but then again, how could you not? ♥
Renée: Castiel. Just believe.rogueslayer452 on July 23rd, 2009 11:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, bb! :D That is precisely what I was wanting to get across, and I love it when I introduce new artists to others.

Bear's music is always so heartfelt and filled with emotion, and funnily I'm listening to tracks from BSG S4 and really, there are some that could have worked perfectly for this mix. Oh well, next time.

Which I'm thinking a Dean/Castiel mix next, yes? ;)

Great mix!
good to see someone using REAL music, and not just whatever seems to be playing in the 'Billboard top 50' even if its completely irrelevant to whatever the mix is about.

Please make more mixes of this quality!
Renéerogueslayer452 on July 27th, 2009 11:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you, that is exactly what I wanted to accomplish with this. Not just a mix with these two characters but having music that is lesser known or lesser used than what other people tend to create with theirs. There needs to be a sense of completion with having the right kind of music that has the right tone and mood and melody which fits what I have planned or perhaps I'm just very anal about that aspect, idk

Oh, I definitely plan to making more. :) Thank you for the lovely comment.
You, or your memorylilting_grace on September 3rd, 2009 05:04 pm (UTC)
I took this a while back and never commented (because I'm a bad internet person like that), but now I'm back to say that this mix is great, as is the pairing.

And thank you A MILLION TIMES for putting on that Tarja Turunen song- it introduced me to her, and then to Nightwish, which is now one of my all time favorite groups. I can't stop listening to their albums. You changed my musical life!
Renée: Cylons. Happy endings are love.rogueslayer452 on September 6th, 2009 07:36 am (UTC)
No worries bb, better late then never. I love any kind of feedback, no matter how late it may seem. :)

Awww, hee! Thanks for the compliment! I try to not reuse a lot of mainstream, popular artists and experiment with the lesser known ones, or the underground variety of music that rarely gets noticed, so I'm happy that I got you introduced to something new. I love Tarja's powerful, operatic voice. And although she left Nightwish (which I still love though she's gone), her solo bits are still amazing and she still has that quality in her voice that I just love. So, I'm incredibly giddy that I got someone else interested in her stuff, as well. :DDD

So, thank you for the comments on both the mix and the musical discovery. :DDDD

This is a fantastic idea. I love it, and the mix! (AND OMG TARJA!)
