"Happiness hit her like a train on a track..."
Everybody Loves Me - A Damon Salvatore Fanmix (TVD) 
28th-Dec-2009 01:47 pm
Maggie Gyllenhaal

Commentary/Warning: Damon, Damon, Damon. I love writing him, and there are many times I feel he is the most dynamic character that The Vampire Diaries, book or show, has to offer. At the same time, he's one of the few characters not given a clear side to be on. Most of the time he ends up on the side of good, but ultimately his philosophy tends to be hedonistic as well as selfish and in the moment. Which I think is the one part that makes him awesome. In a context where everyone else is so sure of their altrustic intentions, Damon is the only contrast to that. Without him, Stefan and Elena (and even Bonnie and Matt, etc.) would be boring precisely because they are hardly ever tempted to do something wrong. Valient, yes, they do valient things. They learn to be braver. They make hard choices. But they act with the best of intentions. Whereas, if anything, Damon hardly ever has the best intentions.

That said, this mix was made specifically with the television show characterization in mind. There are songs that fit more directly, and songs that are obviously based on a slight interpretation of the show's canon. There are songs that had a fitting tone. There are explicit lyrics, and there are sexist lyrics, and I thought hard about including them before deciding that, at least in part, they fit with Damon's characterization would be like. I did want to warn about that part, though. Also the lyrics I included here are kind of arbitrary.

1 The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage – Panic! At the Disco
And I believe this may call for a proper introduction, and well don’t you see, I’m the narrator and this is just the prologue?

2 Bitches – Mindless Self Indulgence
And this is how it should be done.

3 Creator – Santogold
Me, I’m a taker. Know what the stakes are. Can’t roll it back, it’s understood, got to play our cards.

4 Everybody Loves Me – OneRepublic
Oh my, feels just like I don’t try. Look so good I might die. All I know is everybody loves me.

5 Adore Me – Bertine Zetlitz
You know you’re here just to adore me. Don’t you know you’re here just to adore me?

6 Run This Town – Jay-Z feat. Rihanna and Kayne West
Life’s a game, but it’s not fair. I break the rules so I don’t care.

7 Orchestra – The Servant
There’s an orchestra in me, playing endlessly, I even hear it now.

8 Ghost Song – Patrick Wolf
Today I woke, and my spirit was gone, still on the shore where he truly belongs.

9 New Born – Muse
When you’ve seen too much, too young, soulless is everywhere.

10 Stronger – Kayne West
Bow in the presence of greatness… You should be honored by my lateness, that I would even show up to this fake shit.

Shhhh, you're making me look shallow, like I totes am, but not the point! :P

Maybe I could make you one as late fandom-ish gift?

I thought I was making myself look shallow. Not you!

Oooooh, please! But not a Vampire Diaries one. Just him as Ian, being all hot.

Well I am maybe shallow in my motivation with this whole thing!
