When I first started writing Scylla and Charybdis, I put together a soundtrack for it: songs appropriate to the overall plot / theme, specific characters, relationships, and some choices for the gender elements that were just plain bratty (see: "There Is Nothing Like A Dame" from the musical South Pacific). But it's been several years since then; oh, the time between first draft and publication.
Recently, playing some of my newer tunes, it occurred to me that this might be a fitting addition:
Fire Under My Feet - Leona Lewis
It certainly speaks to adversity and hope.
