An example, in the Heroes fandom, I write primarily Claire/Rene "The Haitian" - and I always picture Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sarah Vaughn, Ella, and so on as music that suits them. No particular song, it sort of depends on the mood of the fic and the mood *I'm* in when writing as to which songs I envision. But primarily, for them it's that type of music.
I have other ships that I do this for, too, have in head music that works for them.
So, I'm wondering if anyone else does this? Has a sort of mental artist list or play list in their heads for certain ships or am I the only one who does that?
