If you could choose a song to represent the BA multiverse (besides the traditional supernatural ‘Carry on my wayward son’) what would it be?
Carry On Wayward Son is naturally, a classic for writing anything with Sam and Dean in it, but I definitely have my music that I use when I need inspiration!
There’s a few different songs I’ve used for scenes or stories, like Glad You Came for the end of Taken, when it’s all calm after everything has happened. Celeste has her own theme song in Painted Black, the version by Ciara (A+ song for getting evil, and highly recommended!).
Whenever I want to feel Sherlock-y, I did download the soundtrack to the first three seasons. Those songs are great!
I think one of the songs that helped shape the stories as they are is Jump On My Shoulders, by AWOLNATION. It’s a bouncy song, and not inherently g/t oriented, but I get definite g/t feels from the main line, Jump on my shoulders, and is probably what helped form Sam’s favorite place to stick with Dean. He’s not a fan of pockets, it’s shoulders all the way!
Plus, that song has a line about a man at the door, there to steal your soul, so it also has the Supernatural vibe I’m looking for.
One of my more recent songs is House of Memories, by Panic! At the Disco. It’s what inspired me to start writing some of the BA finale story, which will definitely be emotion-heavy if I get to complete it the way it’s planned out in my mind.
I just, need songs to write. Give me the music and emotions!
