THE WROTE: a lemony snicket fanmix
m, y name is lemony SNICKET and i should, am, a - - well, this is something i wll forever be, i feel, it is inevitable that i ;; should be doomed to nothing but weeping for the rest of my years. We were like Boats passing in the night, did you k:now? the following, is a series -: of tragic, happenstance.
PART I: I GREW UP IN THE V.FD.
i. the guards and the guns | mustard and the monocle
we follow our heads and our hearts // looking back as we die calling out // we’re too young for this life // you’re too good for us now
ii. the quiet crowd | patrick watson
well you could be one of the lovers or liars // hiding all the things they do on the back of their hands // well it’s just you and me // ‘cause everyone’s got a little wrong in all the right places
iii. dear true love | sleeping at last
dear true love // i’m a writer without any words // i’m a story that nobody heard // when i’m without you —- dear true love // a farewell that came too soon
PART II: EVERYONE THOUGHT I WAS DEAD AND SHE MARRIED ANOTHER.
iv. the wrote and the writ | johnny flynn
you wrote me oh so many letters // and all of them seemed true // promises look good on paper // especially from you, from you
v. burn | i build collapsible mountains
hair like a foggy coastline that crashes all the ships // your siren calls out my name as i fall to bits // and you’re standing still on the wrong side of this hill // and i’ll just let you burn like i never could
vi. homeward, these shoes | iron and wine
that is the reason i left you so young // homeward and what if i see her // there in the doorway i walked away from
PART III: THE NEWLYWEDS LEFT ON A BOAT AND DISAPPEARED.
vii. lost in my mind | the head and the heart
put your dreams away for now // i won’t see you for some time // i get lost in my mind
viii. breathe | alexi murdoch
and all the suffering that you’ve witnessed // and the handprints on the wall // they remind you how it’s endless // how endlessly you fall — but don’t forget to breathe
ix. from my own true love (lost at sea) | the decemberists
mr. postman, do you have a letter for me? from my own true love — lost at sea.
PART IV: WHEN THEY CAME BACK SHE WAS EXPECTING.
x. speed of sound | communist daughter
man i hate this town // and so i’m looking for the only way out // and the life i wanted years ago is maybe not the life i should have found
PART V: AND 14 YEARS LATER, SHE DIED IN A FIRE THAT NO ONE WOULD ADMIT WAS ARSON.
xi. i’m gonna be (500 miles) | sleeping at last
and when i’m dreaming // well i know i’m gonna dream // i’m gonna dream about the time when i’m with you
xii. set the sails | dan mangan
might be time to pack her in // set the sails and just get hauled away // maybe east or something // west was overrated anyway
xiii. manchester | kishi bashi
the very last breath of the hero of our tale // would lead you only to guess // does he truly prevail // in the sequel? // i guess i’ll have to write a sequel… // my favourite part’s when i die // in your arms like a movie // it’s tragic and now the story has its proper end
happy friday the 13th

sisters grimm au → jake and puck return to ferryport landing after their first six years of travel - only this time, puck hasn’t grown up.
when she saw the boy at the table, her heart stopped - and she was choking - dying - because he was a boy, still a boy, just a boy, and nothing more."puck?" she said, and the word felt wrong in her mouth, like he was something distant, unspeakable. she hadn’t said his name in so long.
"i’m sorry," he said, his voice cracking, hitching at the end with a sob he could not contain. he was trying so hard not to cry but it wasn’t working; tears spilled, and he wept, and she was numb.
"i’m so sorry."
