So, this is my first fanmix EVER, and I hope I lived up to people's expectations, and I really hope you find connections with the songs as much as I did! So, here goes, my OTP forever and ever. Jack Force and Schuyler VanAlen. Who are just destined to be together. <3 The back cover really sucks, but whatever, the cover is what is most important. haha
MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE VAN ALEN LEGACY! DO NOT CLICK THE CUT UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE SPOILED!
Almost Lover [A Fine Frenzy]
Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
“You don’t have a choice. Come with me, Schuyler, please.” Jack held out his hand. His flashing glass-green eyes were suddenly gentle, pleading. The foreboding look on his face had all but disappeared. He looked vulnerable and lost. It was the same way he had looked at her that night. When he had asked her to stay. (86)
Low Fidelity [Spill Canvas]
Would have carried you, to anywhere you pleased,
even if my limbs were broken, and my body was diseased.
I can't seem to operate from this far away.
There's a million little voices tellin' me
I should have stayed.
Oh it feels so good to hear you speak.
This is where I start to miss you, more than I can bear.
I hate this distance in between us, I don't think it's fair.
All my time spent wondering, how I stay true to you.
But you're not here, and now I fear,
I'll never get back to you.
“We don’t have time for this! You really want me to prove who I am?” he asked.
“Yes!” she challenged.
In answer, he took her in his arms, lifting her up and against the wall. He pressed his lips against hers, and with each kiss she could see into his mind, into his soul. She saw a year of hate… she him alone, alienated, hurt. She had lied to him and had left him. With every kiss he made her see, made her feel… every emotion, every dream he had of her… every ounce of his wanting and his need… and his love… his all-consuming, life-affirming love for her. In the darkness they found each other again… and she kissed him back, so greedily and hungrily, she never wanted to stop kissing him… to feel his heart against hers, the two of them intertwined together, his hands in her hair, then down the small of her back. She wanted to cry from the overwhelming emotion that engulfed the two of them…
“Now do you believe me?” Jack asked huskily, pulling away for a moment so they could look into each other’s eyes. (186)
Hero/Heroine [Boys Like Girls]
I won't try to philosophize
I'll just take a deep breath and I'll look in your eyes
This is how I feel, and its so surreal
I got a closet filled up to the brim
With the ghosts of my past and the skeletons
And I don't know why
You'd even try, but I won't lie
You caught me off guard
Now I'm running and screaming
I feel like a hero and you are my heroine
Do you know that your love is the sweetest sin?
“…I can vouch for you with the Conclave. I will make them understand. They will call off the Venators. Trust me. You’ll be safe in
Come back to me. Jack did not say it out loud, but Schuyler heard it loud and clear
Feels Like Tonight [Daughtry]
I was waiting, for the day you'd come around.
I was chasing, and nothing was all I found.
From the moment you came into my life,
You showed me what's right.
And it feels like tonight.
I can't believe I'm broken inside.
Can't you see that there's nothing that I wanna do,
But try to make it up to you?
And it feels like tonight.
I never felt like this before.
Just when I leave, I'm back for more.
Nothing else here seems to matter.
In these ever-changing days,
You're the one thing that remains.
I could stay like this forever.
“I know you are afraid of what will happen when you return. But you must face your fear, Schuyler. If you and Abbadon are meant to be, then there is nothing that anyone—not him, not even you—can do to stop it.” (226)
Happy [Saving Jane]
I wanna be the first to call and tell you
Yesterday I heard the news
I hear you oughtta be congratulated
So I guess that's what I'll do
I'm so happy for you, I could cry
Yeah, I'm so elated
Cross my heart and hope to die
I don't think about you every night
Before I close my eyes
I'm so happy for you baby,
I could cry.
So this was how a love affair ends: with a random meeting on a public staircase. A few polite words and nothing real said, even though their world was ending. And so, with the most self-control she had ever managed, she dried her tears, picked up her books, and continued up the stairs.
She would just have to endure. (274)
What I Didn’t Say [Saving Jane]
Should've known better, now
All I have left is a permanent stain
The only part of you I get to keep forever
To prove I lived this pain
Maybe I was never as smart as I thought
Maybe we can never be as good as we want
Maybe you just didn't need me enough
Maybe we're too clever to be falling in love like this
Jack was already standing at the altar, looking so very dashing in his tuxedo. He looked up when she arrived, and she could feel his stare all the way down the length of the vestibule. His eyes flashed with hope. Schuyler shrank in her seat. He can’t have… I should go… But it was too late. Jack had seen her.
Schuyler? Is that you? What are you doing here?
Oh, crap. She shut her mind to him. She had to get out—this was wrong. What was she thinking? (324)
Saved [Spill Canvas]
And this is the epitome of everything you see in the movies
And this world is a time bomb ticking and I think I can stop it if you help me.
I am unraveling unbearably empty and if this ground gives way I just hope that you'll catch me.
You came and saved me tonight
Defending all my life
Whoa, now I'm content with my breath cause I'm alive
With the last of her remaining strength, she reached for him, brushing her fingertips against his cold ones, and then she felt his hand grasp hers in his strong, firm grip. He was alive. Her heart rejoiced. He was alive. They had survived. (189)
“Release her!” Jack cried. “Now, serpent.”
Jack had leaped over the gate, his sword aflame. To vanquish his foe and rescue his love. (338)
You calm the storms, and you give me rest.
You hold me in your hands, you won't let me fall.
You steal my heart, and you take my breath away.
Would you take me in? Take me deeper now?
How can I stand here with you and not be moved by you?
Would you tell me how could it be any better than this?
Cause you’re all I want, you’re all I need
You’re everything, everything.
Next to her, Jack put out his hand.
Schuyler grasped it tightly. She would never let go. Not in this lifetime. She knew what this meant. They were going to risk it. They were going to go against the bon, the Code, everything that stood in their way, so that they could be together. They would risk everything for their love. Just like her mother. Just like Allegra.
No one would choose your life, she had told her mother.
She had been wrong.
Together, hand in hand, the two of them walked into the terminal. (366)
*** Time Is Running Out [Muse]
I wanted freedom, bound and restricted
I tried to give you up, but I'm addicted
Now that you know I'm trapped sense of elation
You'd never dream of breaking this fixation
