    it is currently summer 2015 in london.
    it is currently summer-ish in wonderland.

  • stats & info
    Wonderland wasn't always this way. There was a time when it mirrored medieval England, albeit with a few magical elements: a few quirks and eccentricities that made it truly unique. While all feared the Queen's mercurial temper and the fine blade of her Guillotine, all was well, until a little girl named Alice Liddell disturbed the status quo and sparked a revolution. The kingdom began to fall into decay as the taint of the modern world invaded. History is beginning to repeat itself and no one is happy. As the Queen of Hearts tangles in a battle of wits and riddles with the Cheshire Cat, the rest are starting to wonder ... is it true that the White Rabbit is bringing humans to Wonderland when they themselves are banned from going to London?

character mixes

As some of you probably know, I make 8tracks mixes when I should be doing just about anything else (that's useful! and productive! whatever!) AND I WANT TO SHARE THE LOVE. I would do a cool set up of one I've already made re: the Queen & King, except I'm too lazy to do that. (For the record, that mix is here and my cool display posts on tumblr (and the rest of my character mixes, see what I did there) are here.)

Because I have a ten page paper, a month's worth of journal entries, and two weeks left of a three week summer biology class to finish nothing else going on that's a lie no seriously give me something to do and because I love you guys so much, I'm opening a mix shop for you guys.

Loan me your characters for a day or two. You'll get mixes for them. We all win. (Except our feels. Those will always be destroyed.) If you need someone to vouch for me, go ask Alex. He'll tell you I'm awesome. (And think of all the new music you'll discover because I really hate Top 40 music most days.)

So if you want one (or two or three or ten -- just give me some time if you request ten because holy shit that's a lot), just fill out the form below and give me a 48-72 hour turnaround per mix. All playlists will be published as unlisted, meaning you won't be able to get to them from my 8tracks profile -- you'll need the link in order to access it. (This is just to keep RP and fandom stuff separate.)



CODE
[b]Alias[/b]:
[b]Character Name[/b]:
[b]Type of Mix[/b]: (is it just for them? do you want to explore something like a friendship, relationship, family dynamic, etc.?)
[b]Genre[/b]: (list whatever genres you want me to hit. don't think I don't know a genre. I've done mixes with german post-grunge industrial metal. (that's a single genre btw.) I know them all.)
[b]Mood/Feel[/b]: (what feels do you need killed? alternatively, list a couple songs where you're like 'that's it, that's what the feel should be.' you can also list one of my already made mixes if you like a particular mood that comes from one of them.)
[b]Song Request[/b]: (optional; if you already know a song(s) that absolutely must be on here, list them here)
[b]Graphic Request[/b]: (optional; 8tracks cover art must be a minimum 500x500, so if you want me to use a specific image (OR, if you're good at graphics and want me to use one you made), link me here. otherwise i'll put together a cover art image i think fits.)
[b]Title/Description Request[/b]: (optional; you see how all my mixes have hipster/meaningful titles and descriptions? you can write your own here if you want, but I tend to base them on songs in the mix, so it's up to you.)
[b]Other[/b]: (anything else?)

“Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some are given a chance to climb, but refuse. They cling to the realm, or love, or the gods…illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is. But they’ll never know this. Not until it’s too late.”

We tried so hard to live in the truth, but do not tell me all is fine, when I lose my head, I lose my spine. So when your hope's on fire ,But you know your desire,Don't hold a glass over the flame,Don't let your heart grow cold, I will call you by name, I will share your road. I'm a hopeless wanderer & I will learn to love the skies I'm under.
