This is for ikel89
, whose definition of the pairing is basically creeps, sex and Shakespeare
The initial version of this mix only had one of those things, and it was vaguely Shakespearean angst in spades, mostly because I intended to keep it canon. When I realized that was not working, the reworking inevitably brought AU with it, and the AU fic that gives me the best, the most mindblowing, the most visceral feelings about Death Note is Tithe to Hell
(and a separate thank you to antistar_e
who is provider of all recs golden!) So this is respectfully dedicated to the fic, as well -- which, if you're clicking through, heed the rating (!) and read responsibly.
The quotes used in the mix are all from the aforementioned fic (all safe safe/gen), and the internal narrative follows the plot of it, as well, i.e. AU starting after the Yotsuba arc in canon -- hopefully it'll still make sense? I'm good with just hoping rn!
Curiously enough, the "theme" song remained the same, and I cannot stress enough how much I love it; however, in a complete perk-bonus surprise, a lot of my favourite bands basically showed up and said, here, have this song, it totally fits what you're doing. Suffice it to say, there was much yay.
Last but not least - the gorgeous artwork
I used for cover sadly came to me unattributed and reverse pic searches didn't help -- so please, if you know the source, let me know!
Oh, and the creepy crosses are the individual listen/download links. I hope they are appropriately creepy, darling ♥ ( how do you say you're sorry, and there's nothing to be afraid of?Collapse )
