book valentine to my current otp

For this challenge, we are to create a valentine to express our love to a certain character. But, I decided to dedicate a playlist to my reigning current OTP, The Darkling and Alina from the Grisha trilogy.

Since finishing this series, and LOVING it, I have completely passed over the realm of sanity and have shipped this pairing with my entire heart and soul. I frequently wallow in my feelings while listening to this playlist and browsing the Tumblr tags devoted to this couple. This is my gift to them (and you).

Like calls to like

i. Fear and Loathing – Marina and the Diamonds

“I lived a lot of different lives/ Been different people many times/ I lived my life in bitterness/ And filled my heart with emptiness”

ii. Eyes on Fire – Blue Foundation

“I won’t soothe your pain/ I won’t ease your strain”

iii. Crazy in Love (Remix) – Beyonce

“Your love’s got me looking so crazy right now”

iv. Heavy in Your Arms – Florence + the Machine

“I love you never felt like any blessing”

v. Twice –  Little Dragon

“Thought I had the answer once/ But your random ways swept me along”

vi. Waiting Game – Banks

“What if the way we started makes it something cursed from the start/ What if it only gets colder”

vii. Love the Way You Lie – Skylar Grey

“Even angels have their wicked schemes/ And you take that to new extremes/ But you’ll always be my hero/ Even though you’ve lost your mind”

viii. Still Here – Digital Daggers

“Every night, I dream you’re still here/ The ghost by my side, so perfectly clear/ When I awake, you’ll disappear/ Back to the shadows with all I hold dear”


You can check back with me in 6 months and I will still not be over this series and this pairing and these characters.

Do you have any songs that go perfectly with your OTP?
