04: fanmix - your ex-lover is... (cobb/ariadne/mal)  
Medium: Film
Fandom: Inception
Subject: Cobb/Ariadne/Mal
Title: Your Ex-Lover is...
Warnings: SPOILERS for the movie. Seriously.
Notes: I was originally working on an Eames/Arthur mix, because they're my new favourite 'ship. However, the songs I came across reminded me far more of the subtextual love triangle between Cobb, Ariadne, and Mal in the movie. All it took was lillyangel mentioning her preference for Mal/Ariadne, combined with my love of both Mal/Ariadne, Cobb/Ariadne, and Cobb/Mal. Before I knew it, I was already on my way to making a fanmix. As it is, this is dedicated to her. :P

As with most of Nolan's movies, this begins in media res and generally follows the chronology of the movie.

The mix includes cover art and full .zip file. Individual song downloads can be added upon request.



1. the stills everything i build (Cobb)
But I built it with sand and I built it with rock/I built it with all of the things that I'm not/And I watch from the hill as it burns to the ground

2. a silent film julie june (Mal → Cobb)
I am the nightmare that fucks with your head

3. the hush sound break the sky (Ariadne)
Why do I need anyone else, when I can break the sky myself?

4. ellie goulding the writer (Ariadne → Cobb)
I try out a smile and I aim it at you/You must have missed it, you always do

5. bell x1 flame (Cobb → Mal)
Your brought your flame into the chambers of my heart/You brought your flame where all's been condemned to dark/and now your flame spits shadows on my walls

6. adele cold shoulder (Ariadne → Cobb)
You grace me with your cold shoulder/Whenever you look at me I wish I was her

7. florence + the machine girl with one eye (Mal → Ariadne)
I slipped my hand under her skirt/I said don't worry, it's not gonna hurt

8. great lake swimmers this is not like home (limbo)
Stranded and free/This is not like home/This is not like home/And you feel alone/In a world that's not your own

9. imogen heap the moment i said it (Cobb → Mal)
I've got a bad feeling/Trust me on this one/You're gonna throw it all away with no hesitation

10. florence + the machine drumming song (Mal)
I ran to a tower where the church bells chime/I hoped that they would clear my mind

11. jimmy eat world polaris (Cobb → Mal)
As a train approaches, gare du nord/As I'm sure your kiss remains employed/Am I only dreaming?/When you go, I'll let you be/But you're killing everything in me

12. stars your ex-lover is dead (Cobb → Mal)
There's one thing I want to say, so I'll be brave/You were what I wanted, I gave what I gave/I'm not sorry I met you, I'm not sorry it's over, I'm not sorry there's nothing to save...

.zip file containing cover art and all twelve songs.

The OT3-ness of their relationship was far too obvious to ignore.

I hope you like it. :D

Um, I totally love you. Thank you for giving this threesome some attention. I feel they're being spectacularly overlooked.

They have! I've been kind of sad at the lack of Cobb/Ariadne/Mal in the fandom so far.

But thank you for the comment; your love is much appreciated. XD
