Notes: Within the past month I have become thoroughly hooked on slashing Cho/Jane from The Mentalist. Absolutely love this pairing, pretty sure it's making my top five OTPs. I've been working on a few fics, a couple of which have been posted. As I'm wont to do, I ended up tossing together a playlist to have for a soundtrack while writing. I had the idea that at some point I'd make a FST, but I really didn't think it would be anytime soon.

Then I decided that an upcoming challenge for my new community caseland would be a fanmix. Now, I'd already done a fanmix basics post for teamsidekick a few months ago, but I'd been considering doing a more thorough tutorial. Well, that tutorial happened (5 parts) and I decided I should use the opportunity to make my Cho/Jane fanmix. Afterall, it's for a fandom included in caseland so it was an appropriate example.

Exorcise the Past
- A Kimball Cho/Patrick Jane Fanmix -

Track notes: I ended up arranging this mix as something of a progression of Cho and Jane's relationship, from friendship and attraction to something that goes deeper. They both have some serious shit in their pasts that would have to be dealt with to get anywhere. There's also the matter of how much the on-going situation with Red John affects Jane - who he is now, how he reacts, how he sees relationships of any kind... The mix wraps up with Jem's "Falling for You" which caught my ear early on and secured its place in this mix. The lyrics throughout that song strike me as true for Jane. I'm actually particularly fond of "It's true I've become a skeptic How many couples really love Just wish I had a crystal ball To show me, if it's worth it all." I sort of have this head-canon that Jane does want something to believe in, although I don't think he ever believe in psychics or magic.

Dedicated to: All the awesome Cho/Jane fans I've been chatting with! :D You rock. Special ♥s for heffermonkey & tfwftw for amusing and insane conversations. And to cedara, who's been sick recently :<

:01: Blindness (Metric)
I was a blindfold, never complained
All the survivors singing in the rain
I was the one with the world at my feet

:02: Anticipation (Blonde Redhead)
Dark place is your place
I take dark drive to your place
You're staring at me
You're staring with your inside eyes

:03: Living In Twilight (The Weepies)
No one knocks upon your door
Until you don't care anymore
A little alone but it's all right
We are always living in twilight
...So I stumble home at night
...With ghosts and visions in my sight

:04: SW (Blonde Redhead)
It's not, it's not what you give but it's what you kept
It's not, it's not who you kill but it's who you left...
It's not, it's not what it seems ... It's not what it seems
It's not, it's not what you leave but it's what you hold

:05: Little Bird (The Weepies)
Sometimes it's hard to tell the truth from a lie
Nobody knows what's in the hold of your mind

:06: Numb (Sia)
You made me smile today
You spoke with many voices
We travelled miles today
Shared expressions voiceless

:07: Lost My Faith (Seal)
We both know That the harder we try
Can't understand it We're so caught up in the reasons why
Station to station And we couldn't even say their names
I realized it Was just a game

:08: Undisclosed Desires (Muse)
I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty's not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

:09: Out Of The Walls (Tom McRae)
Wake up, love, bring the candles raise up the torch,
pour water in the ink of night, wash this darkness from my thoughts,
cos it comes out of the walls, it comes out of the walls.

:10: Falling For You (Jem)
And I've got to be sure
Coz it's been so long
And I cannot take the pain again
If it all goes wrong
