No. 6 - Shion/Nezumi - Closer To You

...Yes, all right, I'm completely and ridiculously obsessed with this fandom. What of it?

The anime just finished airing and now I have all these FEELINGS. Mostly impatience, because now I want to read the novels but I can't, and annoyance, because that ending was just INSUFFICIENT.

So I made a fanmix to give myself a bit of a catharsis. And also to musically embellish on Nezumi and Shion's relationship, especially that ending. (I may also be writing more fic. Hm. Hm hm hm.)

Medium: Anime/Manga
Fandom: No. 6
Subject: Shion/Nezumi
Title: Closer To You
Notes: Spoilers for the whole series.


  Meet Me At My Window - Jack's Mannequin  

         Come on, you could change me
You could steal me
       You could turn all the lights on
And show me the real me
Then maybe, if I'm lucky
You'll offer me protection      
You could even heal me
Just meet me at my window          

Shion wants to be saved by Nezumi...in every possible way.

We Can Run Away Now They're All Dead and Gone - Snow Patrol

One step too far
Is not far enough away from here

Stay close to me
Don't relax your grip on my right hand
Don't turn your head
Pretend they're all dead and gone by now

Nezumi takes Shion away with just one bit of advice: don't look back.

The Letter - Acceptance

I can't deny
Somehow you're seeing it
So you're the one who took the fall
And it's bringing us together
Don't ask me why
Somehow I'm seeing it
And I'm breaking after all
This could last forever

Shion's selfless actions bind Nezumi to him in more ways than either ever foresaw.

Grey Sky Eyes - Carbon Leaf

I'll try to not act so surprised
I'll feel my way, I'll underplay
All my curiosity and hide
All the questions in my skin

You welcome me in
And your veil is so thin
But the mystery continues to grow
You say, "You must realize
That my grey sky eyes
Neither rain, nor they glow, now you know"

Shion is always questioning; Nezumi has only one answer for him.

Starlight - Muse

This ship is taking me far away
Far away from the memories
Of the people who care if I live or die
I will be chasing the starlight
Until the end of my life
I don't know if it's worth it anymore
You electrify my life
Let's conspire to reignite
All the souls that would die just to feel alive
But I'll never let you go
If you promised not to fade away
Never fade away

Shion still yearns for his mother and Safu, but it's Nezumi he's determined to stay beside.

Liar - Mumford & Sons

Oh please, don't cry, you liar
You lean in for your last kiss
And who in this world could ask me to resist?
Your hands cold as they find my neck
All this love that I've found, I detest

Nezumi hates that Shion's kiss meant nothing more than, "Goodbye."

Closer To You - The Wallflowers

You know there's nowhere else
I wanted to be
Than be there when you needed me
I'm sorry too
But don't give up on me
And just remember that when you were asleep
I got a little bit closer to you

No matter how they fight or lie, Nezumi and Shion are always drawn closer together.

Distance - Christina Perri

I keep waiting
For you to take me
You keep waiting
To save what we have

So I'll make sure to keep my distance
Say "I love you" when you're not listening
And how long can we keep this up, up, up
How long 'till we call this love, love, love

Shion has made his feelings clear, but Nezumi refuses to admit to his own.

Silent War - A Fine Frenzy

It seems you mean too much to me
Too much for comfort, see
The cause is the cure now

We fought a silent war in a hardware store
And the air was thick as paint
Though I carried it on, I knew that I was wrong
But I fight when I'm afraid

Nezumi suddenly can't deny it to himself any longer: he cares about Shion.

Wonderful Life - Alter Bridge

Close your eyes and just hear me sing
One last long good bye
One last song before you spread your wings
There's so much left to say
And before this moment slips away

What a wonderful life
For as long as you've been at my side
And I want you to know
I loved you so
What a wonderful life
For as long as you've been at my side
And I want you to know
I'll miss you so
And though our days come to an end
Know I'll never love like this again
What a wonderful life, my friend

And all that I am, you let me be
I will remember you
For all that you've done
And given to me
Oh, love will remain
This I can see
Now and forever more
Because of you, now I believe

Shion's death makes Nezumi realize how much he loved him.

For A Moment - Brooke Hogan

But for a moment I thought I lost everything
For a moment I thought I lost you and me

Moments after Nezumi believed he'd lost the boy he loved, Shion comes back to him.

Come Back When You Can - Barcelona

You left your home
You're so far from everything you know
Your big dream is crashing down and out your door
Wake up and dream once more

Come back when you can
Let go, you'll understand
Come back, I'll help you stand
So come back when you can

Nezumi leaves Shion and No. 6 behind; Shion makes him promise to come back someday.

Come Home - OneRepublic feat. Sara Bareilles

Hello world, hope you're listening
Forgive me if I'm young
Or speaking out of turn
There's someone I've been missing
I think that they could be
The better half of me
They're in the wrong place trying to make it right
But I'm tired of justifying
So I say to you
Come home, come home
'Cause I've been waiting for you
For so long, for so long

Years later, Shion is desperate for Nezumi to come back to him.

Feels Like Home - Chantal Kreviazuk

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done

Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I'd love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way the back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

Nezumi finally knows where he belongs.

BONUS: Rokutousei no Yoru - Aimer

I thank you for having found me
Even though I am such a small constellation

Finally got to the FST
I loved it. I loved your work. Starting from the first track. So many good songs at once rained on my memory. It's POSITIVE, heartfelt, romantic, suitable for Nezushi, with a good flow. My heart melted. Lemme, please... *hugs and kisses both cheeks* I got interested in Muse and Snow Patrol as bands, will check them out. "Come Back When You Can" is my today's hit. "Meet Me At My Window" is a lucky find and a great first song! "We Can Run Away Now They're All Dead" is very special here, it is one of those songs that are screaming whispers.
Do you have FSTs for anything else? I'd like to download them too.
Thank you.

Re: Finally got to the FST
Thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying it :) It was actually really hard narrowing down songs for this mix - so many songs just seem to be so PERFECT for NezuShi that I agonized for days over which choices to include in the final zip XD I'm relieved that people seem to agree with the final choices! And I really appreciate all of your comments - thank you, thank you, thank you!

There are two other mixes I've made recently, though I'm not sure if they're fandoms you'd be interested in. They were posted at the fanmix community (though I really should have posted them here first like I did with this mix, oops). The first is a Rose/Dimitri fanmix from the Vampire Academy fandom (http://fanmix.livejournal.com/4108046.html) and the second is Remus/Sirius (my other OTP along with Nezumi/Shion ;D ) from Harry Potter (http://fanmix.livejournal.com/4134969.html). If you do download them, I hope you enjoy them as well!

Re: Finally got to the FST
Yourssincerely, thank you very much for your reply. I am very, very sorry for my late reply (FML). Yes, i had seen that you did a hard job making the sountrack. As for songs that didn't make it into the FST, i'd like to find out what they are, out of interest)
The other two mixes are, unfortunately, inaccessible though the links, is there a different link to download them? ~~'
