~hold on to what you believe

for the Houston-Leavitt challenge at tvholics, to make a soundtrack for a show. Which is totally what I should be doing because I hate my life because my arbitration paper is coming up soon.


Amanda grows up with the terrible knowledge that she's been shrifted by the system because her beloved father, David Clark, engineered a terrorist attack, until a visit from a dotcom multi-billionaire tells her that it's a lie. It's a lie that has sunken its hooks into the rich and powerful friends of her father, men and women who conspired and deceived and betrayed him to save themselves, and now Amanda has a new sheep's clothing identity, and simple murder is too easy and painless a form of revenge.

This is sort of pre-season one, the Revenge prequel, the missing years when Amanda Clark became Emily Thorne, when Jack pined for Amanda while growing up with her old dog, and when Victoria Grayson went through the motions, hating Conrad for what he had done to the man she said she loved.

But hold on to what you believe in the light,
When the darkness has robbed you of all your sight.

it's time | imagine dragons
Jack Porter

It's time to begin, isn't it?
I get a little bit bigger, but then I'll admit
I'm just the same as I was

down by the water | the drums*
David Clark

Everybody's gotta love someone
But, I just wanna love you, dear
Everybody's gotta feel something
I just wanna be with you, my dear
I know it's hard, I know it's hard
I know it's hard to be in this position
If they stop loving, I won't stop loving you
If they stop needing you, I'll still need you, my dear

hold on to what you believe | mumford & sons
Victoria Grayson

I ran away
I could not take the burden of both me and you
It was too fast
Casting love on me as if it were a spell I could not break
When it was a promise I could not make
But what if I was wrong?

coming down | dum dum girls
Conrad Grayson

You abuse the ones who love you
You abuse the ones who won't
If you ever had a real heart
I don't think you'd know where to start

seven devils | florence + the machine
Emily Thorne

Holy water cannot help you now
See I've come to burn your kingdom down
And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out
I'm gonna raise the stakes, I'm gonna smoke you out
They can keep me out
'Til I tear the walls
'Til I save your heart
And to take your soul
For what has been done
Cannot be undone
*unsure if that was the soundtrack for an episode of Revenge. Or maybe it's from Gossip Girl.
