(FANMIX: KAY FARADAY) Daylight Robbery  
Medium: Video Game
Fandom: Ace Attorney
Spoilers: Blink-and-you'll-miss-it spoilers for Ace Attorney Investigations.
Subject: Kay Faraday
Title: Daylight Robbery
Warnings/Rating: PG-13 for mild sexual language and drug references. Also, crack.
ZIP?: Yes, follow me! (54.14MB)
Summary: *assumes a straight face* So, um, this is mostly songs I think Kay herself would enjoy thieving/dancing to, with some choices being much more obvious than others :D (LIKE A RECORD, BABY.) Not including her theme felt like sacrilege - even though for fanmix purposes I know it's a massive cheat - but I really don't care, because the awesome makes up for it. That theme is just... ♥ Almost completely unordered, save for the obvious grouping of songs that make up that one dance party that totally happened towards the end. Because that's, like, practically canon, right?
NOTES: All music links will need changing from hxxp to http. Apologies for the inconvenience. I own nothing.

Back cover

Noriyuki Iwadare - Kay Faraday ~ The Great Truth Burglar

Silversun Pickups - There's No Secrets This Year
//I'll tell you a secret
Let's make this perfectly clear
There's no secrets this year//

Blair - Candy in the Kitchen
//Don't stop dancing
This is your chance, kid
You keep on dancing, 'til they get home
Your daddy's gone but
You turn the song up
You keep on singing though the words are wrong//

Robyn - Konichiwa Bitches
//I'm so very hot that when
I rob your mansion
You ain't call the cops
You call the firestation//

Imogen Heap - Daylight Robbery
//Don't mind me, just cruising by
By the girl with the balloon
Good, it looks like we're the only ones around
Caught on CCTV
Heading towards the city lights
Winking diamonds at me
Arms stretched out now
(Oh, it gets me every time)//

Passion Pit - Little Secrets
//Let this be our little secret
No one needs to know
We're feeling higher and higher//

Ladytron - Flicking Your Switch
//It's the time to head beyond the city lights
Now I don't recall there being warning signs
Nine two three, eight one six
Is the sound of them flicking your switch
Eight one five, nine three four
Does this mean you don't trust me anymore?//

Imogen Heap - Aha! (Instrumental)
//(Instrumental version. If Kay didn't already have such a fabulous theme,
this would totally work.)//

Cobra Starship - Send My Love to the Dancefloor, I'll See You In Hell (Hey Mister DJ)
//Get back, you know
That the city is burning
So the story goes
It makes you wonder
'Cause if we're trapped
Then we're never gonna find a way out
Get out
We're gonna dance now//

Dead or Alive - You Spin Me Right Round (Like a Record)
//All I know is that to me
You look like you're having fun
Open up your lovin' arms
Watch out, here I come
You spin me right round, baby
Right round like a record, baby//

Current Mood: indescribable
Current Music: Dead or Alive - You Spin Me Right Round

Awesome! I'd love to know how it goes, and I hope the tunes do help :D

(Also, apropos of nothing, but: it's kinda my greatest wish to find a set of vegetarian!friendly set of gloves like Kay's :D THOSE GLOVES, I LOVE THEM.)

Your icon! So cute! ♥ Kay doesn't do shit by halves, does she?

(And thank you, eeeee! These covers were an embarrassing amount of fun to make, to be honest - I could've made like six different versions if I'd let myself.)

Ah, bless you.

Thank you for giving Kay some dimension and letting her personality shine! She has so much potential, but it always seems like people don't see that.

I can totally see Kay cranking up the stereo/ipod, being mischievous and not missing a beat. Come on, she's seventeen, she wants to party and steal Edgeworth's stuff.

(I love Imogen Heap! And I can see her listening to Cobra Starship.)

*blush* That's so kind of you to say, I truly hope this does her justice! I just totally adored Kay from the moment she did her fabulously overblown Great Thief Entrance to save Edgey... only to completely forget that she wouldn't be able to get out again herself :D So ridiculous and brave and silly - in short, just my type!

I love Imogen Heap!

It's probably no surprise to hear that I do, too :3 I broke the fundamental rule of fanmixes here for Kay, including two songs from one artist, didn't I? Oh well; I'm at peace with my fail :D

I really did have to stop myself quoting the whole song in this post, to be honest :3 SO MUCH KICKASS, SO LITTLE TIME.

That last song seriously needed to be included. XD As well as her fantabulous theme~

And we all know that party really happened. =3

Awesome job! =D

There is never a bad time for that song, is my opinion. Particularly not when it has the Yatagarasu seal of approval :D

And thanks so much for the comment, they make my day <3

Oh man, don't, you'll set me off replaying it again :D ADDICTION, I HAS IT.

(And thank you, it was absolutely and completely my pleasure! I had so much fun making this, it was really kind of pathetic :| KAY, WHY SO AWESOME, BB.)

I'mma have spoiled this whole series for you by the time I'm finished, aren't I? :| Oh, dear.

(And thank you, babes <3 Hope you're doing okay, yeah?)

Tis cool. I'm kind of bad at making plot connections unless something's really plainly spelled out for me, so I shouldn't be too badly spoiled :)

(I'm lots better, thank you <3. Tired, and it's too hot to sleep, although I'm going to have to try soon.
I owe you an email! Sorry I've been a bit rubbish this week. Will write over the weekend :)
But, just to say, in answer to your question, obviously I'm happy to keep betaing for you :). I'd never consider stopping now; I enjoy it too much!
How are you? I hope you're doing ok too.
Must sleep now, but talk soon, yeah? <3<3<3 )

It's amazing, isn't it? It really is the reason why my headcanon now has Kay utilising any free time in between thieving to host awesome thieftastic dance parties :D

Dude, is it bad that I literally shrieked when I saw this? xDDD Kay has to be one of my favourite AA characters ever, and HELLO PASSION PIT, NICE TO SEE YOU. :3 Stop being so awesome. (:

Only if you stop being so lovely :3 *squishes*

(Kay totally is made of win and awesome, indeed ♥ To be honest, her only rival for the position of my favourite in AAI is little!Ziska - and I don't think either of them would be cool with sharing the title, so...)

-is squished-

mini!Fran made me smile so friggin' much during AAI ♥. Especially when she was all 'Who do you think the older sibling is?' to that forensics man. xD Many many lols. It was interesting to see how her character had matured as well - although personally, I didn't think it had changed all that much ;D

This has nothing to do with the fanmix itself - which is awesome, btw - but...the font style on the coverart reminds me of RENT.
