fanmixer's notes

It was great fun creating this fanmix. Comprised mostly of instrumental songs, “Under my lids a splinter sharp” is my attempt at a soundtrack for barrowjane's incredible fanfic.
Indistinguishable from Magic is a tale about the power of storytelling – how the stories we tell ourselves and each other can be a prison as much as refuge, how they can speak to writers / readers' desires and fears alike, and how they can, ultimately, heal scars and bring people together. It is also a tale about a boy who dreams of space, who knows his fairy tales and sees clearly when no one else can. It is an adventure and a mystery, and a love story to boot. I can only hope the soundtrack I've compiled does the fic justice, in the ways it may evoke Indistinguishable from Magic's atmosphere and events.
