The PPC Soundtrack by the Board Edit

SoundtrackContinuum

Derived from a list of songs suggested by the PPC Board in April 2008, the Soundtrack is a set of twelve virtual CDs covering every aspect of the PPC. The album covers were created by Huinesoron in 2008, and rediscovered and completed in 2010 (on the same day as Another Day in the Life was released).

Since twelve CDs would wreck this page, detailed information on the Soundtrack can be found here. The album titles are as follows:

  1. Continuum
  2. Portal
  3. Glitter
  4. Murder
  5. Madness
  6. Insanity
  7. Passion
  8. Smut

The Mary Sue Mixtapes by Lily WinterwoodEdit

The Mary Sue Mixtapes is intended to portray a Suefic from the writer's perspective and the PPCer's perspective, as evidenced by the covers for the two sides (the PPCer's side is actually more of a general Sue-parody side, but there are definitely elements of the PPC in there). Cover art is inspired by one of Agent Eledhwen and Christianne's missions.

Side A (the Writer's Perspective)Edit

This side shows all the elements of the modern Mary Sue—that's to say, a Sue written in a fanfiction community more aware and less tolerant of the blatant types of Sue. These are your thinly-veiled Sues who, in spite of their apparent ordinariness, still manage to warp the canon to obtain their happily ever after.

  1. "Because I'm Awesome" by the Dollyrots
  2. "Teenage Dream" by Boyce Avenue
  3. "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars
  4. "Give Your Heart a Break" by Demi Lovato
  5. "Even Now" by Dashboard Confessional
  6. "Call Your Girlfriend" by Robyn

Side B (the PPCer's Perspective)Edit

This side shows how the average PPCer may see the Sue, how affected canonicals may see the Sue (in spite of the smothering Aura of Smooth), and, in some cases how a Sue may see herself (think Suedom).

  1. "Primadonna" by Marina and the Diamonds
  2. "Sleep Together" by Garbage
  3. "I'm So Sick" by Flyleaf
  4. "Better than Revenge" by Taylor Swift
  5. "You Don't Know Me" by Ben Folds
  6. "I Can't Decide" by the Scissor Sisters

Available here.

"Agony in Pink" Mission Playlist by Julyflame Edit

  1. "Jealous of the Moon" by Nickel Creek
  2. "Heart Beat Here" by Dashboard Confessional
  3. "The Ballroom Blitz" by The Sweet
  4. "Back to Earth" by Steve Aoki featuring Fall Out Boy
  5. "Legend" by The Score
  6. "Heroes of Our Time" by Dragonforce
  7. "Emperor's New Clothes" by Panic! at the Disco
  8. "How Far We've Come" by Matchbox Twenty
  9. "Shelter" by Porter Robinson and Madeon
  10. "Waiting for the End" by Linkin Park
  11. "The Future's Right in Front of Me" by A Great Big World

Playlist on YouTube.

The Original Series Playlist, compiled by Neshomeh Edit

This sixty-track playlist is composed of almost* every song referenced in the Original Series by Jay and Acacia. That includes songs listened to or sung by the agents and songs listened to or sung by Suvians. It also includes Neshomeh's best guesses at filling in the gaps where a band or description is given, but not a particular track. These are set off with [brackets].

* Neshomeh left out "Kumbaya" for reasons of cultural sensitivity and "The Oscar Mayer Wiener Jingle" because it's only mentioned off-hand, sixty-one isn't as nice a number as sixty, and Neshomeh is not unmerciful.

This playlist is Not Safe For Work and may also be Not Safe For Brain; your mileage may vary in the particulars.
