How to write a song for a fan fic?

I'm trying to write a song to go with my fanfic but I'm struggling, it's the first time I've done this, any advise?

This isn't the right forum to post this in, but I'll give you advice anyways.

What is the theme of the fic? Sad, adventure, action, dark, mellow, etc...? Go with whatever tone you feel from it. The idea to making a song is that you feel the emotions inside you and channel them to form a song. In terms of writing lyrics it's the same idea.

You can incorporate some words from the fic (as read dialogue) or adapt into song lyrics. Obviously the tone of the fic determines what style, genre, and tone you make a song about it. I wouldn't expect a dubstep track about background pony for example....
