foxxcub has written the last Jack/James verse fic.

*SOBS*

Let Go

It's just as intensely brilliant and heartbreaking and beautiful as you would expect. I've been so proud to be a part of this verse and it's given me such a deeper appreciation for these characters.

I've also been thinking of a new J/J music mix. Of course. "Chasing Cars," which I heard before it was used on Grey's Anatomy and which made me cry the first time I heard it because it's so very pefect for them.

And lately I've been obsessively listening to a lot of Joseph Arthur again, particularly "In the Sun." Even though it has those kind of strangely religious lyrics, it's so much about a failed relationship and not knowing where someone you used to love is anymore, just picturing what they might be doing now.

I'll just be off in the corner, crying my eyes out, OK?

ETA: Original J/J mix, reuploaded.

I cried for twenty minutes after reading it. I don't think I've ever cried at a fic before, and if I have it's been a long time. But on this one...I lost my shit. Thank god I was alone in my room with the door closed, lest one of my parents ask what was wrong with me.

AUGH! It's completely heartbreaking. And I betaed, so I had to read a few times and it was KILLING ME! In the best way possible, but still. *weeps*

if I think about it too much, I may just lose it again. I just listened to In The Sun (well, the only version I have which is a Michael Stipe/Coldplay one) and it really does seem to work despite the God thing.

OMG, HERE is the Joseph Arthur original version. I DLed the cover but I haven't listened to it yet.

Joseph's voice is just so raw and full of emotion. Kills me! I highly recommend him to everyone. He's like a darker Rufus Wainwright who smokes a lot more, LOL. Nah, that's not quite right. A tad more like Damien Rice? David Gray? With a touch of Tom Waits? He's been the soundtrack to many a slash fic of mine!

Glad to pimp him anytime! He's actually not *that* much like Rufus - nowhere near as theatrical! But then, that would be hard, wouldn't it? ;) Joseph was discovered by Peter Gabriel, if that's another clue to his sound.

I just keep listening to it over and over. I swear its trying to make me read Let Go again but I just don't think my heart could take it. Turns out I have another Joseph Arthur from the Shrek soundtrack, which is minorly embarrasing. Thank you though, this is beautiful. A bit like Pete Yorn, but not as pocessed (and that is why I can't talk about music beyond "oh, that's pretty")

Not too familiar with Pete Yorn other than Winona once latched onto him, LOL. An LA musician's rite of manhood? ;) The Shrek soundtrack also had Nick Cave on it, didn't it, which is even stranger!

But yay, glad you like him! The song just GETS me. Augh! I'd be glad to hook you up with more of his stuff. He's my favorite contemporary artist, definitely. As you can see by my last fm charts: http://www.last.fm/user/halfdutch/

Oh, and you simply have to have another JA song tonight. This is the other one I'm playing to death lately: Redemption's Son. (Not all his lyrics are this religious, LOL. But these two are just in my blood lately.)

OK, one more: Devil's Broom. The video for this (you can find it HERE) has him being dragged all over New Orleans. And Anton Corbijn directed some of his other vids. Anyway, that's probably enough pimping for tonight, LOL.

Oh, thanks so much for re-uploading the J/J mix, I haven't had a way of downloading it the first time.
Given the state I'm in after reading Let Go, I probably shouldn't listen to it; but then again, I should do it right; so I'm gonna read the whole 'verse again, listening to the music...I'll probably die (all over again).

You know what a great thing you guys did with this AU, didn't you?

Just to let you know, that chapter killed me.

You know, it's like a storm, you know it's coming but at the same time it's unexpected.

In other words: It was just perfect.

That's so beautifully expressed. I hope you're not too terribly down today.
