2018, chapter 6: ‘All Of Me’ by John Legend (nr. 118)

Perry is hopelessly in love with Taylor, a woman on a mission to punish her ex. He has chosen to follow her on this mission.

Taylor changes her mood a lot and is sometimes drawing him close and sometimes pushing him away.

He is drowning in the relationship, dizzy with love and trying to understand her. She’s crazy, alright, but he loves every curve, edge, mood and imperfection. He is happy to follow her and very aware that this makes him out of his mind as well.

But it’s not her fault that she’s like this. The world has beaten her down in regards to love, and this is the result.

And she loves him back. They both give their all, risking everything, no matter what they get into.

2018, chapter 1: ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ by Gotye feat. Kimbra (nr. 113)

A woman is stalking in the shadows. A woman named Taylor. This is a new Taylor born from things done to the old Taylor. She still sometimes thinks back to what happened.

They had a baby. It had changed things. The relationship had always had issues – which relationship doesn’t? She was sometimes a little crazy and overreacted. But he would let her know when it happened. And he told her that he was so happy with her, he could die.

But along with committing to the baby, she committed to keeping their relationship alive. And she started noticing that he often refused to listen and blamed her for being crazy even when she wasn’t. She became more and more aware of this and confronted him about it. He saw it as her changing and didn’t like it. He missed the docile way she used to be. He ended up promising to get over it, though.

He didn’t. Instead, Taylor felt more and more lonely in his company and was used to the sadness when Will finally left her.

But that wasn’t it. She was fine and agreed that they could still be friends and raise their child together.

No, what put her over the edge was when that he had lied about wanting to be friends. He cut her off completely. Worse still, he had others her throw out and made it impossible for her to contact him.

He made her an outcast – a stranger. And now she wants revenge. He is no longer the Will she knew and loved.

I could have added a lot more links to this but chose not to. This is a beginning just as much as a continuation and thus needs to be able to stand alone and be an origin for further adventures.

Should you want to know more about her background, follow the tags around to figure out what happened before (I recommend Taylor and Will and Taylor).

105: ‘Live Forever’ by The Band Perry

Will and Taylor are having a baby. This makes Taylor reflect one night.

She has dodged commitment for years, created warlike fights, so she wouldn’t get hurt and fought stability off as if she was a ship unwilling to reach shore.

Now she is ready for commitment. Will will be her only one. This time she wants it all, live forever with him, really let herself fall.

Her love for Will is like a storm inside, an electrified force, a thunder in her heart.

She also thinks about the uncertainty of this prospect. Forever is a long time. This could be a dream, but there are also so many ways, this could end.

But it’s fine. If they stay young and crazy, everything will be fine.

She tells this to Will the following evening.

92: ‘She’s Out Of Her Mind’ by blink 182

Will and Taylor have always had an on again/off again relationship. After they skip their latest breakup, they just stop breaking up.  And being together for a longer stretch of time means that surfaces start falling away.

Taylor stops being Will’s perfect dream girl and starts being genuine: An antisocial girl, who likes Bauhaus and is a little crazy sometimes. Not the batshit-crazy jealous woman, she turns into just before their breakups, she just loses her head sometimes. And she’s self-aware enough to apologise for it. And Will finds that he actually really likes the real Taylor.

Taylor sees a deeper layer of Will too. Perhaps a bit deeper than Will himself sees. She sees him working hard on his studies, but he doesn’t seem passionate about it. And she’s worried about him. So one night she tries to tell him that, but it turns into a fight, during which she calls him a know-it-all and he argues that by being a doctor he would help people, so so what if he doesn’t love every moment of his studies? In the end, she admits to having lost her head a bit and apologises.

84: ‘Blank Space’ by Taylor Swift

For Will, it was a one night stand. He doesn’t even know her name.

Her name is Taylor and she does not agree with his assessment of the situation. She finds him again and wants to continue the relationship.

Will actually doesn’t mind that. Taylor seems absolutely magical and he likes spending time with her. She seems to read him perfectly.

Now knowing her name, he does hear some stuff about exes calling her insane, which she admits. Her relationships tend to either be forever or go down in flames. It’s up to Will to figure out if she is worth it – and that he thinks. She is the perfect girl.

Well, she seems perfect. What he doesn’t know, is that this perfection is a calculated move on her part. After a month, the bliss is gone. Suddenly his perfect girl is crying and screaming. She is jealous and constantly checking up on him and every girl he talks with.

He gets enough of this and leaves – but then she is sweet again and he comes back to her, only for the whole thing to repeat again and again.

Taylor knew it was going to become that. That is how she knows, it’s real love. And hey, she did warn him.
