32: ‘Just Like Fire’ by P!nk

Pink has always had a fire burning in her. She was an ambitious young woman. She wanted it all. She worked hard to become the leader of the Movers and Maids, her dance crew.

As she watches her old home burn down with her dog lying  next to her, she thinks back on the day, she got the position.

She won it in an audition, where many others took part to. Previously they had not had a leader, but now they felt the need for it. But she won the spot, partly because she had already been unofficial leader many times, partly because of the dance, she danced at the audition. She danced like madness and magic,  a colourful charade, with many high kicks to prove her skills as a dancer. She had a lot to prove because the team didn’t think she could lead them properly. They called it impossible. They laughed at her. But she proved them wrong with ease.

Like that day was the beginning of something new, so is this fire. She’s going to disappear before They come back (and she’s kind of have to leave soon actually). She will run her own life instead of having others telling her, what she can and cannot do. No one is going to laugh at her and put out her fire. If she can light up the world up for just one day, like she did at her audition, she’ll be free.

As she’s sitting there she wonders, what’s she’s going to do now. But she assures her dog, that as long, as the two of them are together, trough bad and good weather,they don’t have to worry about a thing.

31: ‘I Write Sins Not Tragedies’ by Panic! At The Disco

Harmony and Ink are talking about the future of their relationship. They talk about the potential of getting married.

Harmony remarks on how everyone would gossip endlessly about her past as a ”whore”, as they would call it.

Ink reassure her by telling her, how he would deal with it by acting it out for her: ”Well imagine, as I’m pacing the pews in a church corridor, and  I can’t help but hear an exchanging of words: ‘What a beautiful wedding!’ says a bridesmaid to a waiter, ‘Yes, but what a shame the poor groom’s bride is a whore.’. I chime in with a ‘Haven’t you people ever heard of closing the goddamn door?!’ ”

His point is that he wouldn’t listen. Having settled that, Ink concludes rationally that they have avoided any problems, they might have had and proposes to Harmony. She happily says yes. They celebrate with champagne.

30: ‘Underneath Your Clothes’ by Shakira

The Leader, privately known as Shakira, is in a loving relationship with a man, whom she calls Honey. He’s a song written by the hands of God and doesn’t understand how she could love him as much as she does.

With him, the most private of her thoughts are safe and hidden. They can be themselves.

Because of him, she forgot the smart ways to keep her operation at Them a secret. And because of him, she is losing the insecurity, that lead her to begin the organisation in the first place.

They belong to each other trough good and bad.

She loves him more than all that’s on the planet, and so much she has to remind herself to move, walk, talk and breath. They’re so connected, they speak with silence. She’s tied up to this love, like a lady is tied to her manners.

She can see an endless story, an entire life, with him. She chooses him over Them and calls him her territory. And she feels, she deserves him, because of that.

I usually (read: have been for about a month or so) link to the beginning of the current story arc, but I’ve realised, I can’t tell exactly where that is until a few chapters/posts in, so that makes no sense. Instead, I’ll suggest a tag for you to click on to get the gist and a place to start reading to understand the context. This week, it’s ”They”.

And I’ll work a reference tool, you can look at, if you don’t have time to read trough the whole thing and/or just wants to get caught up real quick.

29: ‘Funhouse’ by P!nk

After having rekindled the flame in their marriage, Pink and Brad’s house and life became a fun house. They loved each other and were happy with their life, their home and lake. They even had a dog.

Pink didn’t find out about Brad’s secret, and what he had done to keep it before they had been married for a long while and not before it was too late. Not before They were in the house, dressed as clowns in order to be disguised.

They came at different times, while Brad wasn’t there, slowly torturing Pink with information about what Brad had done, echoing voices laughing from behind locked doors.

Their campaign began working. Slowly, like a tickle turns into a rash, Pink began hating Brad. She felt haunted by the evil clowns. One day it became too much. She was all alone. She danced around, watching the photos depicting the lie, she had been living, suddenly noticing a taunting smirk on Brad’s face. This home was already a museum full of ash, so she decided to burn it down. She would rather live out on the street than continue living in this haunted memory of their happy life. She moved out her stuff with the help of her dance crew (known as Movers and Maids) and broke everything else: tore down the photos, mangled the key, tore down the drapes and broke the plates. She counted down and laughed as she dropped the match: ”9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun”.

She would find a new place to live, while Brad would think she died in the flames.

This seems like a good place to start a new story arc 🙂

28: ‘Genghis Khan’ by Miike Snow

Still heartbroken and not ready to not engage in anything serious, Pink began dating other people after  Brad.

This was not Brad’s plan at all! Sure, he knew he had waived all right to decide or even ask where she went at night, but waves hit his head when he realised, she actually would have others in her bed.

And he doesn’t want her to get it on nobody else, however aware of, how possessive this line of thinking is, he is.

The scene  in his mind of her going out slipped away and he went back to work.

He tried faking being okay with her post-him activities. And fact was, that he was still in with Them and getting no closer to getting out, so he didn’t want to date her right now…

But he couldn’t allow her to be free. However selfish and obscene he would seem, he would tell her to not go out with anyone…

But on the other hand, he could tell her his secret and be free from this…

He sunk back into his chair. He couldn’t make up his mind because he was no longer sure what he wanted.
