This is a fan project a year in the making. When I first read Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma last September, my heart was smashed to pieces
. There were intense things happening in my life, and I was utterly broken by the tragic love of Lochan and Maya. As I often do
when things go crazy in my emotions, I focused my love of the book into an obsession to keep me sane. I wrote a fanfic
. Then, shortly after, a sequel
. But my massive creative undertaking was this.
A fanmix. One of the things that I turned to right after finishing the book was Tumblr. And I found this wonderful mix
. It inspired me to take to my huge music collection and make my own. But that wasn't enough. No, I had to take it to another level and spend hours of time transcribing long
quotes to go along with the lyrics in the songs I picked. There were a few important scenes I never found songs for, and I waited ages to find them. But since it's been over a year since I read the book and started this mix, I thought it was time to let go and publish it
I think it should go without saying, but the text below spoils the entire book. In fact, I'm a little frightened that posting such a huge amount of text out of the book is something that could get me into trouble. I promise you that I mean no harm by this. As a writer, myself, I would understand if Tabitha Suzuma would like me to take this down. But I was told that the mix was beter with the quotes, so for now, I'm going to trust that if you've made it this far you've bought the book
. (I bought two copies, myself.) And that you know I do not claim any ownership of the text below the cut, lyrics or prose. I'm simply a fan who wanted to create a different kind of emotional experience, mixing a fanmix with a collection of favorite scenes. If I've crossed any lines, I apologize, and I will gladly take this post down.
In case you are wondering, the sims in the album art are actually some characters from a future book of mine who matched Lochan and Maya pretty well (in multiple ways). And now I might be spoiling my own books. But here we go...( All I can do is love you to pieces.Collapse )
