So, I apologize in advance to anyone on my f-list who is entirely uninterested in my nerdish mix cds; I'm going to be uploading a few that I never got around to posting before this weekend. There may or may not be a post about what I think is the root cause of Alaric's issue with Damon flirting with Elena to break it up (hint: I don't think it's the vampirism or the murdering that's principally bothering him), but that depends on if my thoughts arrange themselves into some kind of coherency.

Meantime! This mix is kind of a do-over. I was never very happy with the mix I made for the "Historical Figures" challenge (for which I drew Nicolai Tesla). I tried too hard to shoehorn in songs about mad science, and too many of them didn't have nearly enough to do with Tesla. As a result, the mix always sounded disjointed and incoherent. Since it was bothering me, I went back, stripped out everything I thought wasn't working, and retooled the mix along new lines based on the little from version one that I thought was on the right track.

Conclusion: This is now an Edison/Tesla slash mix. I don't know whether to blame my brain or my mp3 collection, but I was clearly sabotaged by *something*. Fair warning: this is bittersweet at best. Their relationship didn't end well in real life, and the slash musical version is no different.
