Notes: This mix has two parts. Up through track four is Dan's perspective leading up to around Crazy Cupid Love-ish and the following four are Blair's point of view from Cross Rhodes on. And lest anyone tell you fandom is not a social activity, this was not possible with much collaboration from aragons and many textures from Natasha, to whom I am most grateful. Hope you all enjoy!

every year these always manage to be different. i almost didn't do one this year either, i must confess. i couldn't make a mix that was about how love is a waste of time, i couldn't do it. maybe that means i've grown up or something. instead, this mix is a story about the end of something, and about moving on, and how the things that hurt us are eventually just past. i wanted this to be something about strength for those of you who are spending this valentine's day feeling sad, because last week my best friend said, "anti-valentine's cd coming up. people are counting on you." and he was just kidding but maybe someone will find this comforting, and i couldn't miss that possibility. so, i want you to know that i love you. no matter if we've met or not, because you're human and i love that. i really do.
happy february, kids. and next year we'll see what story i have to tell. ♥
and now i'm going to continue eating the chocolate my mother got me because it's delicious and i am going to get so sick from it i can't even talk about it. :)
