Skins: A Root In The Dark, A "To Bedlam and Part Way Back" Fanmix

Title: A Root In The Dark
Fandom: Skins
Pairing/Characters: Katie Fitch / Effy Stonem
Inspiration:Jengrrrl's To Bedlam And Part Way Back series (also known as the Fic O' Doom); Part 1, 2, 3, 4, (Tag'd Stuff)
Warnings: Angsty. Nothing that really spoils the story.
Disclaimer: Sadly, I do not own a single song, character, or picture (beyond editing the cover).
Notes: Not all in perfect order, but the mix is supposed to loosely follow the series. This is the first fanmix I've ever published, so hopefully everything is a-ok. Like I said, this is based onjengrrrl 's To Bedlam Series, which is a rather dark and amazing fic; hopefully the mix expresses that. The title comes from a Pablo Naruda poem entitled Walking Around.

Olivia&&Natalia: a love story. [an Otalia fanmix.]

Since my life is consumed by these ladies [well, by Crystal Chappell in general...] I thought I'd make a little mix tape about their gay-tastic, lady-lovin' romance, and some of the speed-bumps they hit along the way and more recently. Also, my girlfriend is out of town today so I've been left to my own devices. Dangerous.

I haven't posted anything here before soooooo...nervous!  Oh, and the CD cover is totes ghetto because I have a trial version so it stamps that shit across the entire thing. I tried to use my magical fangirl skills [aka the eraser in paint] to get rid of it, but it sort of became...more...ghetto. Oh well. It's all about the music people!

Searching for Subtext in Books

Hi All! I hope this isn't considered too off topic, please delete if need be.

I just got done reading Josephine Tey's Miss Pym Disposes. The book was a strange-ish wonderful kind of experience. The piece is set in an all girls college preparing for the final exams of the graduating seniors and the excitment of having a famous woman author as a guest lecturer on the topic of psychology.  Miss Pym is the first person narrator.  The beginning is literally dripping with subtext. I realize that the book was written in 1948 so tone has changed quite a lot in that time, and what was perhaps meant innocently only now reads as homoerotic. The other delight was I think it is one of, if not the only, book I've read in which the characters were all women. The only two men we get insight into get maybe 6-7 pages of attention in the whole book. All this was gravy on the fact it is a twisty little mystery in and of itself. 

I am always looking for a good next read and and all this all got me wondering if you, the seemingly perfect group to ask, what your favorite subtexty books are.  I can't imagine there are only the ones that have been written about here.  Hopefully, we can all help each other out.  I can't be the only one perpetually out of things to read next!
