Light a Roman Candle: fanmix (non-icons)

Here's the thing: I usually ship couples that are kindasorta technically canon, but usually end up being the doomed OTP instead of the Canon Supported OTP. I am used to every ship I love being doomed in one way or another. And then I go on a random Avengers fic binge and start reading anything I can find that has these two together in it (I could do a rec post, seriously), and while I wouldn't say that they're my OTP to end all OTPs as far as the Avengers movieverse goes... they are up there.

So: Steve Rogers is Captain America, legendary WWII super soldier who is presumed dead after he crash-lands a plane in the Arctic. He gets better, though, by being unfrozen in the 21st century. He then ends up joining the superhero equivalent of the Breakfast Club and is (we assume) at least starting to adjust to this strange new world.

Darcy Lewis, on the other hand, is absolutely a girl of her own time. She got an internship in New Mexico with Jane Foster, an astrophysicist, and during this internship she tased a god named Thor, and was rather rudely introduced to SHIELD (the super-secret organization that more or less assembled the Superhero Breakfast Club) after they confiscated her iPod along with Jane's research. We can only assume that she got it back.

And if we're rolling with that assumption--that Steve's getting acquainted with life in modern times, and that Darcy eventually gets her iPod back from SHIELD--we can POSSIBLY assume/dream that somehow the two of them meet. And we know from her comments about Thor that Darcy is not at all adverse to blonde beefcake, and we know from his wartime adventures that Steve's kind of fond of brunettes who can hold their own against percieved threats, so... you picking up what I'm putting down?

ANYWAY. This is for waywardmixes. The back cover is awful because Photoshop was being stupid.


When You Were Young, The Killers
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young.

Mother, We Just Can't Get Enough, New Radicals
There's something about you
That tears me inside out whenever you're around
There's something about you
That makes me fly
You're a heart attack, just the kind I like
There's something about your kiss
Haunting and strange
That makes me feel so good
I get a feeling, get a feeling, we got a feeling
Like we're alive.

Gimme Sympathy, Metric
Get hot
Get too close to the flame
Wild open space
Talk like an open book
Sign me up
Got no time to take a picture
I'll remember someday
All the chances we took

We're so close to something
Better left unknown
We're so close to something
Better left unknown
I can feel it in my bones
Gimme sympathy
After all of this is gone
Who would you rather be:
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?

Light a Roman Candle With Me, fun.
Oh, I know, it goes on, it gets old
But for now we're young, we smell good, we're alone
You look for a legend
I'm looking for common ground
Your heart isn't breaking
and mine isn't making a sound.

Add Your Light to Mine, Baby, Lucky Soul
All the rubbish that ever surrounds us
Could make a stone wall cry
But someday I'm
Going to leap out of this hole and you can too
If you're by my side.

Kiss On My List, Hall and Oates
I go crazy wondering
What there is to really see
Did the night just take up your time
'Cause it means more to me
Sometimes I forget what I'm doing
I don't forget what I want, I want
Regret what I've done, regret you?
I couldn't go on.

Head Over Feet, Alanis Morisette
You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault.

Hella Good, No Doubt
A performance deserving a standing ovation
And who would have thought it'd be the two of us
So don't wake me if I'm dreaming
'Cause I'm in the mood, come on and give it up

You've got me feeling hella good
So let's just keep on dancing
You hold me like you should
So I'm gonna keep on dancing

Heroes, David Bowie
I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day.

The Edge of Glory, Lady Gaga
I need a man that thinks it's right when it's so wrong
Tonight, yeah baby
Tonight, yeah baby
Right on the limits where we know we both belong tonight

It's hard to feel the rush
To push the dangerous
I'm gonna run right to, to the edge with you
Where we can both fall over in love.

Recs, I has them! Hopefully you don't have anything to do for a while, 'cause once you fall down this hole it'll take a while to come out of it.

One shots and completed works:
It Began with a Nap (five times Darcy sat through a Captain America lecture and five times Captain America sat through a Darcy lecture)
Kids' Movies (it's the first in a series but all of it is JUST SO GOOD)
A Series of Unfortunate and Impossible Events (a vampire AU that works so well)
Extra Credit (one of the best "Darcy introduces Steve to the 21st century and they fall for each other" fics)
Robot Pants-Off Dance Off (sex pollen!)

Works in progress:
What to Expect When You Never Planned on Expecting (surprise pregnancy)
Turn Off Trouble Like You Turn Off a Light (Steve and Darcy get drunk and Vegas-married!)
Figure Drawing (Darcy poses for Steve a la Rose for Jack in Titanic)
Five Things Darcy Loves About Working for SHIELD

My own stuff:
round and round we go (Steve takes Darcy to Coney Island and it doesn't go as well as planned/hoped for)
Five Times Steve Tried to Propose (I got stuck on four; am trying to finish out the whole thing)
Shake the Glitter Off Your Clothes (Steve and Darcy get Vegas married; Steve is inexplicably covered in glitter)

And everything that the following five writers have done:
victoria_p (you and your high top sneakers was the fic that sold me on Darcy/Steve; and courage teaches me to be shy is so so cute)
meinterrupted (Darcy Lewis vs. The Tabloids = love)
boombangbing (start with Direction and work your way up from there)
enigma_eggroll (A Space Between and everything that follows)
LJ9 (start with And All I Got Was This Lousy T-shirt and work your way up; Roll Call has some of the best Avengers characterization I've seen in fic so far)

I love Steve/Darcy so, so much! This mix is lovely and the cover art is amazing!
I'm not actually super familiar with either of them (my Marvel experience is actually pretty small) but the mix looks awesome. I'm familiar enough with the music to know you paint a pretty wonderful emotional pallette here. I may actually start dabbling in Marvel with this pairing... fic rec?
Thank you! And it's really hard to not get into, uh, almost everything once you start. Or, at least, that's how it was for me. Anyway, here be recs, go forth and enjoy.
Awesome mix! I really love the songs you've chosen for these two.
Eee, thanks!
This is a pairing I hadn't really thought about before (I tend more toward Steve/Natasha), but I like it! And these are awesome song choices.

Also, "Superhero Breakfast Club" cracks me up. A+. :D
I LOVE STEVE/NATASHA TOO. The first post-Avengers fic I wrote was with them. God, now I want to make a mix for those two as well.

My biggest dream is that someone actually writes an Avengers Breakfast Club AU. I have an idea for it but I'm already working on another big AU with them right now, so it might have to wait.

Your cover art rocks! I also love the mix you have here. Steve/Darcy is my head canon! :) I'd love to see you rec list for them.
Thanks! Here's the recs; hope you enjoy.
I have only recently become a convert of this couple and the description, the cover, the song choices are all so perfect and make me want to write so much fic for them! Thank you for all the pretties!
Thank you and you're welcome! More fic would be amazing. I need to finish so much of my own.
Oh my gosh. I love you! "Head Over Feet" is such a Darcy Lewis + Steve Rogers song, and the rest of these... wow. I have about half of these, so I'm definitely building a playlist from your album ASAP.
That was actually one of the last songs that I came up with for the mix. I was at work and for some reason it popped into my head. Glad you like it!
I love this mix and this pairing (second fave after Darcy/Hawkeye). It's my own personal canon that Darcy helped Cap reintegrate after being frozen for all those years, so this is perfect. Thanks for the fic recs you left elsewhere in comments, too!
Thanks! And you're welcome!
Awww, how cute is this? :D
This. This is fantastic. The inclusion of "When You Were Young" really got me. Also, omg Super Hero Breakfast Club.
Thank you for sharing
o i the only one who would KILL to see a cap/darcy vid to 'head over feet'? i'd never even thought about it til i saw your mix..but now..DO WANT
this sounds great! If you ever re-upload, please let me know :)
