Time Of Death: January 16, 0:14

I’ve enjoyed writing this blog. It was fun and challenging.

For a time, writing it was the only time I got any writing done. And I was grateful for that too because it kept me from falling too deeply into a non-writing black hole. But now I have very little time on my hands, and more often find myself wanting to write other stuff, but having to write a chapter for the blog, and sometimes not even getting that done.

So I’ve decided to end this blog… Rather suddenly, I know. I might come back to it when I can manage it. Go like my Facebook page, if you want to be told in that case.

Bye (for now?).

2019, Chapter One: ‘Closer’ by The Chainsmokers (nr. 160)

A man is sitting in a  hotel bar, drinking by himself. A woman walks in with her friends. He recognises her. She left him four years ago. Four years, in which they haven’t even called each other.

She sees him too. They feel drawn to each other and can’t stop themselves. They leave together and go to her too expensive Rover with the mattress, that she stole from her roommate back in Boulder.

He tells her that he’s doing fine. He drinks too much and that’s an issue, but he’s okay. He tells her to tell her friends that it was nice to meet them, but he hopes he never sees them again. He tells her that she looks pretty.

She tells him, that he looks as good as the day she met him. She forgets just why she left him. She was insane. She asks him to stay and play that Blink 182-song that they beat to death in Tucson.

They recall together how they met. Two kids with broke-down cars. They pull each other closer. He bites the tattoo on her shoulder and together they move the sheets right of the corner of the mattress. They’ve got nothing to lose. After all, they ain’t never getting older.

2018, chapter 47: ‘Pretty Girls’ by Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea (nr. 159)

Two women, Chainsmoker and Little Mix, need a break. So they hide their identity behind fake names, Iggy and Brit, and travel around the world, attracting boys. They get drinks and play with their affection, but don’t put out.

Their civil war is temporarily forgotten.

This is the last chapter of this particular story. Starting next week I begin a new one in the same universe, possibly involving some of the same characters (think sequel). I do this to keep some kind of focus. Merry Christmas and happy New Year.

2018, chapter 46: ‘Better When I’m Dancing’ by Meghan Trainor (nr. 158)

Chainsmoker is falling apart from magically controlling an army. Her co-leader, Little Mix, has had a much easier time and has not noticed how it has affected her friend. So when she finds Chainsmoker falling apart by herself, she tries to pull her back together by cheering her up. And since dancing always makes Little Mix feel better, she suggests that they go dancing like they used to.

They can still run the revolution together and Chainsmoker can stay in control. And while Chainsmoker isn’t the best dancer, Little Mix is sure it’ll make her feel better – be therefore be better in general.

2018, chapter 45: ‘Before He Cheats’ by Carrie Underwood (nr. 157)

Carrie has lost her husband. He was the one to leave her, but it was not a surprise to her. She knew he was cheating on her.

It had led her to stand outside a bar he had gone into.

She thought about how he was probably slow dancing with a bleached-blond tramp, and she was probably getting frisky. He was probably buying her some fruity little drink ’cause she couldn’t shoot whiskey. Then he was probably up behind her with a pool stick, showing her how to shoot a combo. She was probably up singing some white-trash version of Shania karaoke. She was probably saying “I’m drunk”, making him think, he was gonna get lucky. So he was probably dabbing on 3 dollars worth of that bathroom Polo right now…

She was furious and looking for revenge. So she dug her keys into the side of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive and carved her name into his leather seats. She took a Louisville slugger to both headlights and slashed a hole in all four tires.

She smiled to herself. Maybe next time he’d think before he cheated. She might have saved the next girl a little trouble from him. At the very least, he wouldn’t cheat on her again.

2018, chapter 44: ‘So What’ by P!nk (nr. 156)

A marriage has ended. And the wife is ecstatic, even though he was the one to leave. She feels free from him. She’s a rock star. She doesn’t need him. She’ll have more fun without him. She’s gonna go out, get in trouble and start a fight.  She’s alright, just fine, and he’s just a tool anyway…

She goes out. She’s supposed to have a table, but they gave it away to Jessica Simps. No matter. She’ll sit with her long-time friend, Eminem, whom she lovingly calls Drum Boy.

She wonders if her ex will hear her sing about him on the radio and react violently. He might even kill someone. She’d certainly be in trouble. They’re all gonna get in a fight!

She’s not worried though. She can handle him.

She sinks into sadness, thinking about how he was never there. How did she not notice that earlier? She gave him life, her all… He wanted everything for nothing.

But so what? She’s just fine and neither wants nor needs him tonight.
