Hiya! I made a mix as a complement for doctorkilljoy's fic, Ad Astra called "No Easy Way" for [profile] [community profile] bandombigbang 2016. The title is taken from the fic's title, which is from a quote by Seneca, Non est ad astra mollis e terris via - “There is no easy way  from the earth to the stars.” Probably the coolest title for a fic I've ever seen.

This is an awesome fic that creates its own world, with it's own rules and species, and it really pulls you into the story as well as the character's thoughts. Breaking out of your shell, and believing you don't deserve what you want when others are trying to make you realize how important you are to them. Along with this is a fascination with exploration of space and wonderment, which I'm a sweet sucker for. Not only did I love the main characters of this, but all the background characters as well. It felt like reading into the lives of some very good friends. I focused on individual scenes or what I felt the characters were feeling for the tracklist. I had a lot of fun making this.
