(FANMIX+ICONS: ADRIAN/FRANZISKA) Helplessly, Lawlessly  
Medium: Games
Fandom: Ace Attorney
Spoilers: Case 4 of Justice for All, vaguely.
Subject: Adrian Andrews/Franziska von Karma
Title: Helplessly, Lawlessly
Warnings/Rating: FLUFF. OH GOD. Mild, cutesy sexings. PG-13.
ZIP?: Yes, follow me! (59MB)
Summary: Their relationship as I see it working and progressing, to the tune of artists such as Imogen Heap, Vienna Teng, Uh Huh Her, Electrocute, Goldfrapp and more. Because for some reason these two just scream female-fronted electronica at me, what can I say? (I don't know how the cover art ended up green. Honestly.)
NOTES: All music links will need changing from hxxp to http. Apologies for the inconvenience. I own nothing.

Front cover

Back cover

Uh Huh Her - Common Reaction (Franziska: "the deal")
//Do you realize, you're caught in the middle with your alibi
You've been living in a dream
and you think "will I likely fall?"
Oh, still you lie, based on the fact
that you will always hide
Oh, you're covered in dust,
you're covered in dust//

Goldfrapp - Fly Me Away (Franziska: "phone number")
//And I wanna be the one that you call
When you get down
No matter where you are in the world
I'll be around//

Vienna Teng - Momentum (Adrian/Franziska: "moving forward")
//Would you help me rise up?
Touch my face and watch me try to breathe again
Would you let me do this?
Burn down the final wall
(Overcome me, baby)//

Electrocute - Just Like I Am (Adrian/Franziska: "cards on the table")
//Put down your gun
Lay your head down next to mine
Look in my eyes
I've got something to tell you
I've nothing to hide
But there's some things that I've been through
That I think you should know//

Frou Frou - Must Be Dreaming (Franziska: "foolishly falling")
//I must be dreaming or
We're onto something
I must be dreaming for
I don't fall in love lawlessly
I must be dreaming or
Pinch me to waking
So undeniably yours
As long as I'm losing it so completely//

Ingrid Michaelson - Masochist (Adrian: "tumbling after")
//She says "you're a masochist for falling for me,
So roll up your sleeves"
And I think that I like her
'cause she tells me things I don't want to hear
Medicinal tongue in my ear//

Lovers Electric - In Love (Adrian/Franziska: "maybe it's not so bad after all...")
//Taking on the world
Breathing in the old
But everything is new
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love
Like it's the first time
I'm not in control//

Blonde Redhead - Pink Love (Adrian/Franziska: "independence")
//I won’t bind my strings to you
But build my world beside you
Watching you draw a line//

Imogen Heap - Between Sheets (Adrian/Franziska: "together")
//You and me, between sheets
It just doesn't get better than this
The many windswept yellow Stickies of my mind
Or the molten emotional front line
I couldn't care less, I'm transfixed in this absolute bliss/


And because I've gotten sick of wasting my manips, I made some icons. Nothing fancy (because I suck), but feel free to snag, skip rope with them, etc., if you're so inclined :D

(And honestly, thank you! xD Your mixes introduced me to loads of awesome artists I'd never even heard of, so I'm super grateful ♥)

Ohh, that's so nice to hear, thank you! :3 One of the reasons I love fanmixes so much is that you end up hearing artists you might not have listened to otherwise, you know? A good proportion of the stuff on my CD rack is things I've brought after falling in love with a track from one mix or another. So, it's really lovely to hear that you've found some things you've liked, too :D

Wow, really? Oh, my, thank you! <3 That makes all the headdesking totally worthwhile, honestly (I seriously almost gave up on this mix like three times, the art was such an unbelievable pain in the ass :|)

Anyway, I'll see what I can come up with, 'kay? I'm not that great with larger graphics, but I'll certainly give it a try :D

LOL i can imagine! it's really hard to make official art look good. D: i mostly love how it looks like franzy's got one arm around adrian and the other holding a camera up or something though, haha! no worries if you can't make a wallpaper out of it; it was just a suggestion. :D thanks in advance for trying either way! ♥

Not a problem, I kind of fancied a wallpaper myself ;D They are too cute ♥

Oh wow, you used some very lovely songs that I like an awful lot, so I'm sure the rest of the mix will be just as great. And man, this mix is kinda adorable. I like your album art too -- simple and pretty!

The tracklist was really the only bit I was sure about to the end, so I really hope your conclusion turns out to be correct :D The art, on the other hand... urk. Still, that makes it extra nice to hear that you like it, yay <3

Thanks for the thoughtful comment, as always!

I'm not much around the fandom anymore but... FRADRIAN!~♥ This is nostalgia at it's best!

In other words: Thanks for sharing, downloading as we speak.

I'm totally late to every party, particularly fannish ones :3 Still, I'm glad this is a satisfactory nostalgia hit - that's a real compliment, thank you ♥ I hope you enjoy it!

(Oh my, they look so cute together ♥)

Well, I'm red/green colour blind, so if it's any consolation, the cover art totally doesn't look green to me :)
I love your mixes. Downloading, and looking forward to checking it out :)

I owe you other comments, and a response to your PM. It's bedtime for me right now though, so I'll try and reply tomorrow :)
Also, shall try to get to a post office tomorrow, so FFX should be winging its way t you soon :)
I hope things are good with you ♥

Okay, so now I'm ridiculously curious, and tell me if I'm being disgustingly nosy (okay, I already know I am), but - how does it look to you? I've got a bit of fascination with vision-related things, heh :3 (...As well as a huge glasses kink. Ahem. *blush* OH HI THAR ADRIAN.)

Anyway, no worries, we'll get caught up, yeah? ♥ I hope you like the mix (and will forgive the lack of Ginny! :/ Urk. She is giving me the runaround in a big way. I'm thinking about rereading once again, refresh my memory, you know?)

Not nosy at all :)
To be honest, colour blindness as I (and I think, most people) experience it, isn't the inability to see particular colours at all. It's more problems with fine distinctions. So, very pale pinks, I'll see as totally white. Dark green will be black. Paler green might be brown. But strong reds and greens I have no problem with.
I assume you mean that the back cover and the title background is green? Cos it's just sort of ivory/off-white to me. It's a nice colour though. It works well.
Franzy and Adrian's background is black. Unless that's dark green?

I am so with you on the glasses kink
(I'll be sure to remember that little detail the next time I write smut;)). I don't even know what it is. It's just guh ♥

Haven't had a chance to listen to the mix yet :(. Soon though (if I feel like I do now, I'll be staying in bed tomorrow, so I'll be able to catch up properly :)).

You're totally forgiven :). Ginny always was a little minx :D
A reread sounds like a good idea. I reread The Philosopher's Stone in January, and plan on getting around to the others some time soon. Always so much else to read though :(

No, ivory is right, for both the front and back. The patterning on the front, along with some of the text, and the background part you mention - those are the green bits. I guess it's not really that green after all, is it? *facepalm*

I'd love to download this, but for some reason I get this error when I try to follow the link: Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (hxxp) isn't associated with any program.

Okay, what you need to do is copy/paste this:


into your address bar, and then copy/paste http: on to the very beginning (before the forward slashes), before hitting Go in your browser :) Again, I'm really sorry for the trouble - I know it's a right pain, believe me :/ If it's still not working for you, give me a shout, yeah?

I'm rapidly thinking about giving them secondary OTP status, seriously. I love them like, a silly amount <3 I'm glad to share this with people who feel similarly :D

Christ, it really is like their own personal little soundtrack. The songs just fit so well XD

Good job, and the cover art really is quite pretty owo
