68: ‘Say Say Say’ by Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney

Dre, a worshipper of Mother Mary, The Creator Of It All, needs her to inspire him to move on with his life after loss and help him with his music. Dre has lost his son, more recently lost a woman, whom he loved, and in general, doesn’t know what to do with his life and creative work.

But unlike so many times before, Mother Mary does not appear before him. In desperation, he starts praying, not a normal practice in the belief in her, and continues doing so every day for years for years, but at no points does she appear, no matter how much he cries. Slim, his close friend, supports him in this. He starts to lose faith in her. They love her dearly but begins to feel that she is playing with them. Maybe she has become disappointed in them and that is why she is ignoring them.

They beg her to appear. They don’t care what she says at this point, as long as she shows that she hears them. They will even give her sacrifices, if it means, she won’t have left them.

62: The end (and what’s new in 2017)

‘Need You Now’ by Lady Antebellum

While Dre fell head-first in love with Pink solely based on her helpless, his big declaration does not have the same effect on her.

But Dre and Slim help her lie down. She is at her last hour now – and her mind flashes back to Brad, the husband she left after she found out that he had been keeping big, horrible secrets from her.Memories scatter trough her mind, as it has many times before. She reaches out for him in her mind. She wonders if he still thinks of her, many years later. Now she needs him to be there and help her heal.

Brad, still looking for Pink, after she faked her own death and disappeared, is sitting in a rented room drinking, missing her. He wishes she would come sweeping in like she did when they were together.

Both are in pain. But both also realise that at least it means their relationship actually mattered to them.

NEW IN 2017!

Because the main plot has become, to repeat myself, comic-book-complicated, I’m shifting focus. I’m still in the same universe, but I will find a new main character to develop for the next year (don’t know who yet, depends on the song). I might return to Steven and Pink once in a while, but their story seems pretty final, so probably not (but then again, it wouldn’t be the first time, I killed Pink).

61:When He Finally Heard Her

‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ by Michael Jackson

Pink was ill, weak and near death when she called out for two men on the street, Slim and Dre. After several attempts, Dre finally heard her.

Dre fell for her there and then and told her, how she made him feel.

He saw her in her high heels and her pretty dress. He saw how helpless she was. He no longer felt lonely. He had never felt this in love. She was the one for him and he swore to keep her satisfied.

54: ‘I Need A Doctor’ by Dr. Dre ft. Eminem and Skylar Grey

This song is explicit and a clean version 1) is not on Dr. Dre’s VEVO 2) would have a lot of bleeps. Therefore my text is also explicit. Most won’t find it too bad, but it might be unfit for a child or people who would rather avoid that kind of language.

Here’s the video, so you can see what I mean. My text is cleaner than that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VA770wpLX-Q

Summary:

Pink is sick and needs help, so she calls out for help by two men walking by.

These men are Dre and Slim. They are musicians. Dre is Slim’s mentor. They are fighting about Dre’s self-doubt in regard to his music and don’t hear Pink.
