I'm working on a music mix for a character of mine - did one for her last year, doing a new one now that's how she relates to her family members (AKA the other PCs, and a few NPCs.)

So, my character Tamar has a pretty complicated family. (Yes, this is an Amber game.) To summarize the situation I'm trying to characterize: she's adopted, and very close to her sister of the same age from the adoptive family. (Cousins by blood, sisters by upbringing.) Meanwhile, that adopted-sister has a twin by blood, who was not raised with them and resents Tamar for having the decent upbringing that she never had.

Tamar, of course, thinks her sister's twin hates her for different reasons than the actual reasons and is angsty over it.

So I am looking for songs on the theme of wondering/agonizing over not knowing why someone hates you.

Anyone have any suggestions?

"By the smile that plays on your lips," Mandor said, "I feel the entertainment must be excellent. Care to share the punchline?"

"Asked so sweetly, how can I refuse? You will know well, I am sure, that metaphysical dealings sometimes require sexual congress." Fiona arched a brow in his direction.


"It is not nearly so often that sexual congress requires, perforce, metaphysical dealings. Thus, as you say, I am entertained."


Note to self: In future, always write porny fanfic while working on applications. They are two entirely different kinds of embarrassment, and thus take the sting out of each other, improving workflow.

So for Yuletide I made the usual three requests, etc, etc.

My top request - which, while I would have loved either of the others, frankly took center stage because I've been Amber-obsessed lately - got so much love!

It was, basically, to explore and perhaps resolve some aspect of the relationship between Martin and Brand. And, if the writer wanted to, hit some of my kinks for friendly enmities and betrayal and forgiveness in the process. Oh, and slashy subtext. Massive spoilers for the books, if you haven't read them.

The wonderful, wonderful folk of Yuletide wrote me three. different. stories.

Even if it were politic to choose a favorite, I wouldn't be able to, because I love them all so much. They don't duplicate each other's content particularly. The first two have the most slashy context, they are allllll the kind of wonderful darkbright stories I favor, pain and ambiguity and desperation and hope and strangeness, and OH SO MUCH WIN.
