Here's an omitted scene from part 5! The tone and pacing didn't fit the rest of the fic, especially near the end of the story where the scene was placed.

These are notes I wrote on 26 September 2015 while visiting the Montauk Lighthouse in Long Island, NY. It's more evidence of how badly I struggled with figuring out how the actual plot would unfold, but how I never had trouble with the tone I wanted. Some of these images I managed to work into part 5, but not all. I haven't retouched this all, so enjoy my typos lol.

When writing a single story over a seven year period, you inevitably collect a pile of songs that remind you of the project you're working on. This mix is meant to accompany my pokémon gameverse redgreen longfic Halcyon, which takes place ten years after HGSS. It's about Green moving to a lighthouse, finding Red, and making peace with his own past.

The progression of the songs in this mix follows the narrative arc of that story. There's a prologue and an epilogue, and then two songs for each chapter. Many of these pieces talk about or sound like the ocean; almost all of them talk about growing up.

Cover Art was commissioned from the wonderfully talented [twitter.com profile] untamablecosmos.
