Song Post!

A reader asks, "Is there a particular song you associate with each of the Legacy books?"

At least one per book! I tend to get stuck on a fairly small playlist for each one, usually one song each for the major characters.

Here's a selection


Allegiance (though it's not my book) is Ronon's story, and this is the ultimate Ronon song for me.



The Avengers is Teyla's story, but it's also Sam's story and it's a story about queens -- Wraith and otherwise. This is one of my very favorite vids, and it's so The Avengers that I wondered if the vidder was in my head!



Secrets is a little harder, because there are two separate plots interbraided, but this is the song I've listened to a million times while writing Secrets.



And looking back, this is my song for The Lost -- absolutely pure John Sheppard! I'm sure he's got this on his MP3 player.



So what do you guys think?

Brothers in Arms &hearts I love that song to pieces (in fact, it's one of my Stargate writing songs ;)). And yes, it fits Ronon very, very well!

Also, Bruce Springsteen! I've been having Born to Run in my head the entire day (probably curtesy of the big bang fic I'm still stuck with...) and you're right, John would probably be a big fan, too ;)

I love Brothers in Arms, and it's very much where Ronon is in Allegiance. If he's not a Satedan soldier and he's not a Runner and he's not a Wraith hunter, who would he be? He's only thirty one. What would he do if he had freedom and choices? That's the question Sam posed him back in Homecoming. If he had his life back, what would he do with it? How much of his old life could he salvage and how much would he want to? And that's a question that carries through in The Avengers, when he has to lead a team with Cadman and others.

I can see John being such a Springsteen fan!

Thank you! I'm glad you like them. I'm really excited about Allegiance even though it's not my book. I think you'll love the scene with Teyla's "lair" as much as I did! :)

I utterly love that scene. Allegiance is Ronon's book, and there's less of Teyla than there was in The Lost, but what there is, is really good! And the book after, The Avengers, is Teyla's story, so she has a lot of plot coming! Tiny spoiler for The Avengers -- it owes a LOT to the episode "The Queen!"
