Fanmix: Dean/Castiel - Mine  
Posted for dc_fireplace.

Notes: Being my OTP, I wanted to do something a little different than my normal streak I've done with fanmixes. This is sort of a dedication to the Dean/Castiel fandom in a way, presenting the theme of one of my favorite kinks: possession and dominance. A combination of an aggressive/possessive, an almost borderlining BDSM-but-not-really kind of way of how Dean and Castiel demonstrate their passionate love for one another, whether it be from eyefucking and invading personal space to the unadulterated lust and need and want provided through such releases of wing!porn or handprint!porn or what have you, just the fact that these two are intimately linked together with their undeniable chemistry and how both fandom and canon has created something between them makes me want to create a mix specifically based on such a relationship between this human and his angel.

Song/Mix Meta: First I have to say that compiling a list of appropriate songs for this pairing was harder than I realized, because there are certainly plenty of songs out there but unfortunately I had minimal choices from my own collection. I also tried not to be cliche when choosing ones that people either already have or have used ad nauseum in their mixes before. But in the end, I think I'm quite happy with how this turned out even if it might be just a tad cliched in that department, because these are songs that I associate with the pairing in general when such a trope in fandom occurs, and that's what I wanted to show. And as you can witness, there is a particular pattern/bias with using Darren Hayes in this mix, an artist which I often associate with this pairing for some reason.


01. "For Your Entertainment" by Adam Lambert
Take the pain, take the pleasure
I'm the master of both
Close your eyes, not your mind
Let me into your soul
I'm gonna work it 'til your totally blown
The first track is by Adam Lambert which, while a popular song, I had just gotten into Lambert and I've been listening to nonstop and the first time I heard it I couldn't get Dean/Castiel out of my mind, and quite frankly this more than represents their relationship in such dominating circumstances. Whether it's Dean or Castiel taking the lead, it's about pleasuring the other and making it worth their while.

02. "Teeth" by Lady Gaga
Tell me something that'll save me
I need a man that makes me alright
Tell me something that'll change me
I'm gonna love you with my hands tied
Show me your teeth
Ignoring the lines where she says "bad girl meat", I felt this song is more about that BDSM line where it's, again, the dominance and mainly the beat itself has more of this aggression than others do. But what really spoke to me was the "got no religion, my religion is you" line because, essentially, Dean/Castiel is about finding that kind of salvation in the other without the need of religion. They are each others religion, the obsession, the want and need to be around one another, in a way that is almost indescribable to take such a claim by marking each other with such dominance of what is rightfully theirs.

03. "Dirty" by Darren Hayes
If you want to, I can be dirty too
I can spin you around, pick you up and go down
If you want me to, I can be dirty just like you
And do the dirty things you do
This is more focused on Castiel's dominance over Dean, where he wants to show or sometimes prove to Dean that he can be just as aggressive and just as nasty, dirty and perverted as he can be. As much as we all adore the sweet and pure innocent nature of our precious angel, make no mistake that Castiel can overpower anyone with fierce intensity, and we've seen this on the show, particularly with Dean. And given this, there's no doubt that Castiel can be pushed to the point where he absolutely needs to take Dean for himself and prove just how useful his knowledge of human nature really is.

04. "Shiver" by Maroon 5
Immobilized by the thought of you
Paralyzed by the sight of you
Hypnotized by the words you say
Not true but I believe them anyway
Focusing on Dean now, where it's obvious that he is mesmerized (and perhaps slightly terrified and intimidated) by Castiel's presence, otherworldly and how utterly terrifying it is to have this being stronger and more forceful than any other creature he's come across. I felt this song describes precisely how Dean feels whenever he's around the angel; he feels paralyzed and hypnotized by Castiel, and doesn't really know how to react and sometimes only acts upon instinct. Wanting more of that intensity of that stare, to test the angel's limits, to push him to get him to react. It can be dangerous and reckless, but sometimes it pays off in the end....

05. "Angry Angel" by Imogen Heap
This is an obsession, a kind of aggression with himself
It's the way he'll always be
He loves to rebel, to go against his ten commandments
For him, that's just being free
This goes into the hurt/comfort category, where I identify this as Castiel's way of not only being more dominant in the relationship, particularly when he was still underneath Heaven's watch back in S4, but feels the urges rising from within and he needs to break those rules just to get a taste of Dean, just to know what it's like to feel in that kind of way. "Angry Angel" I've seen being used other times, but this I felt was more appropriate in this context because Castiel is still new to this concept and he might be angry with Dean for doing this to him, making him feel like this, to make him question and make him disobey orders and risk his life, but we all know that Dean doesn't really care. Because he has Castiel and in the end, Castiel has his Dean.

06. "Creepin' Up On You" by Darren Hayes
No one else can love you like I do
Feel it when I'm creeping up on you
I know it wouldn't be right
If I stayed all night
Just to peek in on you
Creepin' up on you
Ah, the song that most of fandom identifies with Dean/Castiel, all thanks to the infamous fanvideo someone made in dedication to stalker!Castiel as he, well, stalks his one true love, Dean. Which is very true, very canon and featured also in fandom where Castiel watches Dean from a distance, appearing by his bedside in the motel room, watching over him. It's protective, but also possessive as well, wanting to be near him at all times. Some can call it creepy and unnerving, but to Castiel it's just his duty to keep Dean safe, among other things, of course. Every time I listen to this I can't not think of anything else other than Dean/Castiel, thanks to that fanvid. And I am not complaining, either. It's a perfect fit.

07. "Come On Closer" by Jem
Rhythmic motion, raw emotion
Infiltrating through
Sweet sensations, hot temptations
Coming over you
This is the more erotic song of the mix, where aside from the hot, sweaty fast and rushed sweet sexing there's the intensified slow yet passionate love that Dean and Castiel make together, often seen as a religious/spiritual connection between them as their souls join together as one. It's also about pleasuring the other, but in a mutual sense of wanting them both to experience the same kind of eroticism and intense passion they both feel for one another. Which I find incredibly hot and sweet, since who else to give them that but each other?

08. "Chained To You" by Savage Garden
And when you looked into my eyes felt a sudden sense of urgency
Fascination casts a spell and you became more than just a mystery
And I think about you all the time
Is this fate is it my destiny
That I think about you all the time
This is sort of Dean and Castiel being linked together as one, that no matter where they go or what they do, they feel compelled to be around the other and feel completed when they do. It's about wanting the other and nothing else mattering. Finding that peace, that benediction with one another, and knowing that no one else has the ability to make the other feel the way they do.

09. "Bad Things" by Jace Everett
When you came in the air went out
And every shadow filled up with doubt
I don't know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things to you
Perhaps the sexist song to get revved up for, well, anything naughty really. This is the "I'm gonna take you now" song for Dean/Castiel, doing incredibly sacrilegious and naughty things when both are rather hot and bothered and just going with their cravings, their instincts of what they desperately want from the other and how they feel when they are around each other, unable to resist such temptations. Whether it's doing it in the back/on top of the Impala, up against the wall, ravaging each other over and over again until the break of dawn, whatever fantasy one thinks of, this is perhaps the best to describe it.

10. "Love Game" by Lady Gaga
I'm on a mission
And it involves some heavy touching, yeah
You've indicated your interest, I'm educated in sex, yes
And now I want it bad, want it bad
A love game, a love game
To put it simply: Castiel wants to ride Dean's disco stick, and Dean doesn't object. At all. ♥

I love your cover - Mine!! - and I love your meta.

Hee, it's pretty much what I think about when I think of Dean/Castiel. That sense of possessiveness of mine, Dean is Castiel's and Castiel is Dean's. It just works, and I kinda have this thing for that being featured with this pairing.

Thank you for your compliments, bb. ♥

Gotta have Gaga when associated with Dean/Castiel, that's all I'm saying. ;D Thank you so much for commenting!

I love this fanmix, even though I'm almost more excited to find that I like Lady Gaga's songs, cos I've never listened to a single one of them out some strange principal concerning pop music. I have no idea how that happened either.
Renée: Castiel. Nngh.rogueslayer452 on January 11th, 2010 01:46 am (UTC)
Hee! XD I am amused by this greatly, because it seems that those who weren't into Gaga's music before and are suddenly hearing her are not addicted (and particularly where Dean/Castiel are concerned, it totally fits and it makes anyone addicted!) But yes, Lady Gaga is pretty much my current musical obsession at the moment, and every single time I hear one of her songs I keep thinking of this pairing. Same goes for Darren Hayes and some of Lambert's songs, heh.

Anyway, thank you for the compliment, bb. :D

I love this! The whole theme and the cover art and Gaga and everything else is perfect.

Well, thank you darling. *g*

this looks absolutely gorgeous, ohgosh. i LOVE the cover (fits so well with the name, guh) and i love your song choices (lady gaga! jem! imogen heap!) and i lovelovelove your meta. it's always fascinating to read why people think certain songs are perfect for a pairing/character, so i'm especially glad you did that here.

downloading! ♥

Thank you so much, bb! :D Interesting story with the coverart: last night I had a particular plan of what I wanted to do with it, but that plan failed because it wasn't working right, so I decided to go for the simpler version. Apparently the simpler version works much better than what I originally intended for, lol.

I always find that meta or at least something written accompanying a mix more compelling than just simply a mix by itself, particularly when there's a specific theme which gets the listener a chance to understand and feel where I can coming from when choosing such songs in the first place, like a visual of sorts. So, thank you, I appreciate your appreciation of the meta. :)

I hope you enjoy! :DDD
Tracy: Dean/Casalexwhitman25 on January 11th, 2010 12:36 am (UTC)
WHEE! You made a Dean/Cas mix!! Also, much love for your usage of Imogen Heap and Jem. I love the cover art.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. Personal space.rogueslayer452 on January 11th, 2010 12:58 am (UTC)
\O/ Thanks bb! I've been meaning to do one but never had the opportunity because I keep having mix ideas for them but they never seem to finish, but somehow having a deadline kind of made me really think about a type of theme I wanted to go for and, well, here it is! :D This actually has me wanting to finish the other Dean/Cas mixes I started. Hehe.

Gotta have the Imogen and Jem love. ♥

EEEEE, what an awesome idea (not that I'm at all biased by my massive kink for the dominant/possessive aspect of their relationship, haha) - shall be taking this and having very naughty thoughts as I listen, RAWR.
Renée: Dean/Castiel.rogueslayer452 on January 12th, 2010 12:10 am (UTC)
I know, right? It's one of my massive kinks, goes right up there with wing!porn, and I felt it was appropriate to make a mix dedicated to it because as much as the schmoopy/angsty romance is with this ship, gotta have some love for the more aggressive side of this pairing.

Anyway, thank you so much, and enjoy the mix with those naughty, naughty thoughts. ;)

This is awesome! I love the theme, and your meta is fabulous. I especially like your comment about "got no religion, my religion is you" and finding salvation. So true for these two! And Dirty by Darren Hayes and how it pertains to Castiel? Love!!

Great job! :o)
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on January 12th, 2010 12:31 am (UTC)
Awww, thank you bb. ♥ Yeah, "Teeth" really represents that exact theme, and "Dirty" is such a Castiel type of song I just had to use it. Thank you so much for your comments, they are love. :D

I still kinda am. ;) I think I just returned to him through Adam Lambert, because his vocals totally remind me of Darren's quite a bit.

THIS IS AWESOME, AMAZING, AND I TOTALLY LOVE THE WHOLE MIX! Thanks for including why you thought these songs fit them, I enjoyed reading that.

DLed the zip and listening right now! THANK YOU!!!

YES! Teeth by Lady Gaga is such a SPN song in my opinion. Glad I'm not the only one who has been thinking about it, haha.

I love how you used more pop music rather than classic rock and metal, it's refreshing to see a different kind of fanmix when in this fandom it's pretty rare to find something without Metallica or something likewise, haha. I love it. I also love how refreshing it is to see somebody focus more on the possessive side of the pairing rather than the angsty romance. Both are alright, of course, but there hasn't been too many mixes like this since the early days. I like it a lot.

Anyway I love it. ♥ Memming so I can snag it when I have time, thanks so much.
Renée: Dean/Castiel. BFFs.rogueslayer452 on January 11th, 2010 11:46 pm (UTC)
HEE! YAY FOR BEING BRAINTWINS! :D That song I cannot get out of my head as something Dean/Castiel, I've had that (and almost all Gaga songs really) on repeat constantly and every time I hear it that's what I think of.

And thank you for such a compliment. I know that the majority of the fandom tends to lean towards the more rock/alternative because that's what the show generally is, it has rock songs associated within the show itself and that's what draws such inspiration for different mixes. But when coming up with this theme, I wanted something with a bit more pop-zing to it, if you know what I mean. Because I didn't have many rock songs that went for what I was looking for and those that did, didn't sound right for what I, personally, see this pairing as. Going in the more poppy direction I think was just by accident, but it was a happy accident because it just flows out better and makes sense; there's a bit more sultriness to it, I think.

Again, thank you for those kind words bb. It is greatly appreciated. ♥

Oh man, I haven't heard Come On Closer in ages, but it does fit incredibly well! Thanks for this, I will be downloading ASAP! <3
Renée: Six/Gaius. Passion.rogueslayer452 on January 11th, 2010 11:33 pm (UTC)
It's quite a sexy song, very intimate and certainly describes the more passionate of raw emotions I see in Dean/Cas fics.

Thank you for commenting, and enjoy the mix! :D

Oh, I don't mind at all! I'm very flattered that I was an inspiration, actually. So do with what you will. ;D

Already have those, but totally agreeing on the choices...and yay for Darren &hearts.

Dirty is such an awesome song.
Renée: Castiel. Guardian angel.rogueslayer452 on January 11th, 2010 11:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I kinda figured most would have the songs, but I decided it's not the songs but rather the motive of choosing those songs.

I love "Dirty" so much. Hell, I love much of Darren's songs. ♥
