Tea and Cigarettes: A [Bittersweet] Draco/Ginny Fanmix









1. Blue Light - Bloc Party
And you didn't even notice
When the sky turned blue
And you couldn't tell the difference
Between me and you
And I nearly didn't notice
The gentlest feeling
You are the bluest light


Draco is noticing Ginny, noticing her and slowly falling in love.

2. Cannonball - Damien Rice
There’s still a little bit of your song in my ear
There’s still a little bit of your words I long to hear
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on


He finds himself growing closer to her, or wanting to. He tries to deny it, because a Malfoy can't be with a Weasley, but he finds it hard to ignore the feeling that comes whenever he sees her.

3. The Scientist - Coldplay
Nobody said it was easy
Oh, it's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard


He's come close to losing her so many times, and he knows he will, someday, but he can't let her go.

4. Mindchanger - Bush
I think of me sometimes, I'd never tell
Do you recognize me, think that you know me well


Draco follows in his father's footsteps, and Ginny is a part of the Order of the Phoenix. In his fight, he hunts for the rebel, and she still hopes that someday she can change his mind.

5. Is It Any Wonder? - Keane
Sometimes I get the feeling that I'm
stranded in the wrong time
where love is just a lyric in a children's rhyme, a soundbite


Across enemy lines, Ginny and Draco wonder if they can ever reconcile, and how.

6. Run - Snow Patrol
And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here


Love was never easy.

7. No Ordinary Love - Sade
Didn't I tell you
What I believe
Somebody say that
A love like that won't last


Ginny did all she could to make him understand, but he was, and will always be, a Malfoy and Malfoys don't compromise. She wonders how love can be this complicated. She's flying, she's falling.

8. Life In Mono - Mono
The tree-lined avenue
Begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets
In tea and cigarettes
But I cant seem to forget
When you came along


Even if he leaves, runs far away, he can't forget her.

9. Are You There? - Anathema
But since you've been gone I've been lost inside
Tried and failed as we walked by the riverside
Oh I wish you could see the love in her eyes
The best friend that eluded you lost in time
Burned alive in the heat of a grieving mind


She would've given him everything, but he couldn't take it all.

10. Til Kingdom Come - Coldplay
Hold my head inside your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For you, I've waited all these years


But how can he leave her? She's the perfect thing. She's everything he's ever wanted. She's the one who doesn't judge, who would be there with him and help him through everything. He has only to ask.

11. Twisted - Eliza Gilkyson
I like your clever boy disguises,
Your shady little grin
When you walk the ragged edges
Of the outside looking in


He's everything she's hated, but he's everything she wants.

12. The People That We Love (Speed Kills) - Bush
How's it feel she's coming up roses
How's it feel she's coming up sweet
How's it feel when it's all in spite of you
How's it feel when she's out of your reach


Love hurts.

13. Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see


With each other, against all odds, they find peace.

14. A Rush of Blood To the Head - Coldplay
Oh I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire
Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires
Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
Do back the things it did to you in return


Draco would go anything for Ginny, revenge every small hurt, even the ones he caused himself.

15. We Laugh Indoors - Death Cab For Cutie
This city is my home, construction noise all day long
And gutter punks bumming change
So I breed thicker skin and let my lustrous coat fill in
and I'll never admit I loved you, Guenivere


If he leaves her forever, and their differences are irreconcileable, he will never tell her he loves her. But he does. He always will, his Guenivere.

I know the songs aren't the most original selections, and they're often used in other fanmixes, but come on! Coldplay and Snow Patrol seem to write their songs with Draco and Ginny in mind. I really like the way this mix has come together, with mellow songs that rise towards the middle and fall again in the end. And I didn't mean to make it so sad! It just happened, the way things do. Maybe next time I'll make a happier D/G mix, but for now, have a sad/thoughtful one.
