title: so faithful, so few
subject: the first order of the phoenix
notes: includes music by sufjan stevens, arcade fire, ben folds, and an assortment of others in no particular order. download links and other things under the cut.

Hi. Okay, I really love the First Order. Like, irrationally love them, considering the lack of information we've received, especially with some of my favorite characters (see: Mary MacDonald - who may not have even been in the Order, Dorcas Meadowes, and numerous others). They were my first foray into fandom (many, many moons ago - like six or seven whole years!!!!) and I've never really been able to let go. Unfortunately, my writing skills are mediocre at best and my graphic skills even less than that, so the extent of my participation falls to making all-over-the-place fanmixes. The general feel I wanted for this was a sort of exhausted hope - these people have been fighting for so long and can't give up because the reward is just too great, even if it means they could lose someone they love. It's about clinging to those closest to them because everyone they know is dying, and having to be fearless and not backing down when things get hard. It's loss and worry and stubbornness. Hopefully, you feel it too.

one. seven nation army l the white stripes

everyone knows about it 
from the queen of england to the hounds of hell  
and if i catch you comin' back my way
i'm gonna sell it to you
and that ain't what you want to hear but that's what i'll do

two. a lion's heart l the tallest man on earth

there's a palace a fallin'
there's a smoke in the sky
there's a boy running downhill to the lowlands tonight
and he's catching the train to where he's heard you have been
he's a fool now among us, a dreamer within

three. live to tell the tale l passion pit

i know that whatever happens to you,
whatever happens to me,
i hope that i'll fall asleep
knowing that you'll always be
the story with no ending

four. walk in the park l beach house

the face that you saw in the door isn't looking at you anymore
the name that you call in its place isn't waiting for your embrace
the world that you love to behold cannot hold you anymore

five. we won't need legs to stand l sufjan stevens

so faithful, so few
so pardon, and done
and when we recieve
we give a change at last

six. bullet proof... i wish i was l radiohead

limb by limb and tooth by tooth
tearing up inside of me
every day, every hour
wish that i was bulletproof

seven. i'm so tired l the beatles

you know i can't sleep, i can't stop my brain 
you know it's three weeks, i'm going insane
you know i'd give you everything i've got 
for a little peace of mind

eight. blood red blood l voxtrot

oh i'm just trying to do my best
i'm not afraid of life, i'm afraid of death
build my love in the things i say
you've gotta lift your face to the breaking day

nine. neighborhood #3 (power out) l arcade fire

and the power's out in the heart of man
take it from your heart, put in your hand
what's the plan?

ten. cold water l damien rice

cold, cold water surrounds me now
and all i've got is your hand
lord, can you hear me now?
lord, can you hear me now?
lord, can you hear me now?
or am i lost?

eleven. not the same l ben folds

you see 'em drop like flies from the bright sunny skies
they come knocking at your door with this look in their eyes
you've got one good trick and you're hanging on
you're hanging on to it

zip without cover art l zip with cover art
please comment if you download :) or if you don't and just want to talk about the marauders because that is my favorite
also if there are any issues with the links let me know and i'll fix them!
