The Ancient!John 'verse Mix requests

It's Thursday. Tomorrow is my last day at the grocery store, it's a beautiful day out, and, for some reason, I'm in the crappiest mood I can recall having been in for the longest time.

So I've decided to pull myself out of my funk (and my apparent writer's block) by creating a soundrack for The Ancient!John 'verse.


Of course, I've not actually made any real progress on it. This is what I've got so far:

1. Introduction/Prelude to the Series: Loreena Mckennitt - "The Emigration Tunes"

[instrumental]

2. Iohannes' Theme: Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Under the Bridge"

It's hard to believe / That there's nobody out there / It's hard to believe / That I'm all alone
At least I have her love / The city she loves me / Lonely as I am / Together we cry

It's not much, but I'm more than willing to take suggestions. Consider it an early birthday present...
  • Current Mood: bitchy
  • Current Music: Linkin Park "The Messenger"

I love this idea ♥ I...can't think of any songs at the moment to contribute though :\ Everything I think of fits more with canon!John.
that's... annoyingly unhelpful. But I shall forgive you, eventually.

But, seriously. It's riddiculus. I'm trying to write, but can't actually get any of the thousands of ideas I have on paper... computer.. whatever. And it's killing me.

I should be happy and whatnot, as tomorrow's my last day at the hellhole that is my work, but instead I feel myself going slowly crazy... like all my thoughts are tangled togeter in some miasma of RL and fic ideas. It's vaugely disturbing.

Le sigh. And I'm willing to take any ideas at this point, if it helps me write.
Sorry :( I've been thinking about it on and off all day, but couldn't think of anything. This is the closest I came.

D: That sounds very unpleasant.

I know some people recommend you take a break from your work and write little meaningless drabbles and such to get the creative writing at least started. Have you tried Write or Die?
Yeah. It never works for me, though. I need to the internet to look up random stuff. I got stalled for hours the other day because I needed to look up something about superconductors... and had not internet. And, when i finally got it back, I spent ages looking up yttrium and it's composites for info.

Hmm. I like the song, but I'm worried about doing too much intramental, as that seems to be the majority of what I'm finding.
Wow, that's incredible detailed research. I'm not even sure what yttrium is.

Yeah, mostly instrumental. I'm trying to think of songs that would fit Ancient!John, but the only stuff I'm coming up with apply more to canon!John. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled, though.

Do you want it to just be about John (and possibly Atlantis), or would you accept McShep songs too?
Anything for the Ancient!John 'verse, really.

Yttrium is a very rare element almost never found in nature, but almost always present in the higher-temperature superconducting magnets.

But I can't right if I don't have the details right. The inner nitpicker in me won't allow anything else. Makes life difficult, but... I like it.
