Picspams
I knew right away that I wanted to illustrate some of the scenes with a picspam. Cougar and Jensen's conversation in the cell gave me the perfect opportunity to bring Cougar's shifter form in, but also hint at Jensen's heritage (see last panel).

The second picspam is about the other two main characters, Drake and King. This is their second meeting - it's not quite as explosive as their first (see second panel where King remembers that bit *g*).


Soundtrack
The songs were picked in collaboration with taibhrigh. The different songs reflect all four main characters and some general themes covered in the story. You can listen to it on 8tracks or download the zip file. Enjoy!


01: AVICII ➼ Wake Me Up

So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans

Drake goes to sleep.

 

02: Lorde ➼ Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Welcome to your life
There's no turning back
Even while we sleep
We will find you

There's a room where the light won't find you
Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down
When they do, I'll be right behind you
So glad we've almost made it
So sad we had to fade it
Everybody wants to rule the world

They wake up the king of vampires.

 

03: U2 ➼ The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)

I woke up at the moment when the miracle occurred
Heard a song that made some sense out of the world
Everything I ever lost, now has been returned
In the most beautiful sound I'd ever heard.

Drake is awake.

 

04: Slayer ➼ At Dawn They Sleep

Awakened I have become
Light now slips away
Manipulate your mind
Darkness is my slave

Taste the sins of Hell
The blood that I so crave
The last thing that you see
Is the hunger in my eyes

Drake wakes up hungry.

 

05: George Thorogood ➼ Bad to the Bone

I wanna be yours pretty baby
Yours and yours alone
I'm here to tell ya honey
That I'm bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
B-B-B-B-Bad
Bad to the bone

And when I walk the streets
Kings and Queens step aside
Every woman I meet
They all stay satisfied
I wanna tell ya pretty baby
Well Ya see I make my own
I'm here to tell ya honey
That I'm bad to the bone
Bad to the bone

Drake is and always will be the King of Vampires.

 

06: Imagine Dragons ➼ Radioactive

I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals

I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age

It's a new age Drake's waking up in.

 

07: Bastille ➼ Pompeii

Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down (oh where do we begin?)
In the city that we love (the rubble or our sins?)
Great clouds roll over the hills (oh where do we begin?)
Bringing darkness from above (the rubble or our sins?)

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?

The world has changed a lot over the centuries, but a lot of things are surprisingly consistent.

 

08: Garbage ➼ Temptation Waits

I'll tell you something
I am a demon
Some say my biggest weakness
I have my reasons
Call it my defense
Be careful what you're wishing

You are a secret
A new possession
I like to keep you guessing

Hannibal is like a shiny new toy when Drake first sees him.

 

09; Train ➼ Angel In Blue Jeans

I hear voices calling all around
I keep falling down
I think my heart could pound right out of me
I see a million different ways
To never leave this maze alive

I woke up in somebody's arms
Strange and so familiar
Where nothing could go wrong
Barely alive or nearly dead

Weeks ago, Hannibal knew exactly who he was. Now, everything is different.

 

10: Yeasayer ➼ Sunrise

Lift the world upon your shoulders
I stay young while I watch everyone getting older
You could take a million years
Out of my head

But I'm starting to lose my place
In the circles that I trace
And if I let go only then
Will my face

Get in the sunrise
I want to get in the sunrise

Jake has been alive for a long time.

 

11: Taking Back Sunday ➼ Sink Into Me

You're all I see,
sink into me.
Sharpen your teeth,
sink into me
Sink into me (sink in, sink in)

I'd love to see you have your way,
come on, have your way with me
(And hang from every word you spoke)
I'd like to see you have your way
(Correct each stutter every slur)
Come on have your way with me,
sink into me.

Hannibal doesn't even know why he's so attracted to Drake.

 

12: Jay Gordon ➼ Slept So Long

I see hell in your eyes
Taken in by surprise
And touching you makes me feel alive
Touching you makes me die inside

I've slept so long without you
It's tearing me apart too
How'd it get this far
Playing games with this old heart
I've killed a million petty souls
But I couldn't kill you

Drake found Hannibal and it's all he ever wanted and never thought he'd have again.

 

13: Muse ➼ Undisclosed Desires

I know you've suffered
But I don't want you to hide
It's cold and loveless
I won't let you be denied

Soothing
I'll make you feel pure
Trust me
You can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognise your beauty's not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Drake has fallen for Hannibal.

 

14: Jace Everett ➼ Bad Things

When you came in the air went out
And all those shadows there filled up with doubt
I don't know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you
I wanna do real bad things with you

Hannibal is sure he really *shouldn't* want this. (He still does.)

 

15: KONGOS ➼ Come With Me Now

Far away
I heard him say (Come with me now)
Don't delay
I heard him say (Come with me now)

Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I'm gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I've wasted time, I've wasted breath

Resisting temptation is just too difficult.

 

16: Imagine Dragons ➼ Demons

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

Jake and Cougar have both been hiding things.

 

17: Zella Day ➼ Compass

Take me to the garden of your ecstasy
Make myself a heaven from your falling leaves
Woven in the fabric of your tapestry
Cover me in honeysuckle memories

Cougar & Jake's love song.

 

18: Imagine Dragons ➼ Who We Are

We were never welcome here
We were never welcome here at all
No.

It's who we are
Doesn't matter if we've gone too far
Doesn't matter if it's all okay
Doesn't matter if it's not our day

Trying to fit in with the mortals was never going to go well for any of them.

 

19: Moon Taxi ➼ Running Wild

So drink it in
Let it race around your mind
We come alive as it's dripping from our eyes
Oh, this city's wild,
Oh, it's burning through the night
Until we say goodbye
So just for now
We could come undone with the rising sun

It's going down.

 

20: 30 Seconds to Mars ➼ Kings and Queens

The age of man is over
A darkness comes at dawn
These lessons that we've learned here
Have only just begun

Into your eyes
Hopeless and taken
We stole our new lives
Through blood and name
In defense of our dreams
In defense of our dreams

We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between Heaven and Hell.

"The age of man is over."

The Fic

Summary:
The Vampire King is once again walking the earth. On any other day Hannibal King would try to kill him; today he has to thank him for saving his life. That is, before he turns it upside down.

Jake Jensen has been hiding from himself and doing a pretty good job of it. He hadn't expected to be held captive by vampires; nor had he expected to come face to face with his past. Especially not in front of Cougar.

And that's just the beginning.
