2018, chapter 7: ‘Treat You Better’ by Shawn Mendes (nr. 119)

There are two sides to every story. So far Taylor’s has been told. This is Will, her ex’, side.

He had become more distant and didn’t listen much anymore. He can’t run from that. And her overreactions became more severe as a result. So he promised to be easier on her IF she tried to control it. She didn’t and their relationship suffered for it.

But he had good reason to be distant. He was working on a way to control time. A way to talk to his deceased mother again. And thus, he failed to uphold his part of the deal as well.

In the end, the relationship suffered for the distance between them, and he took the difficult decision to leave her.

Problem was, he knew what kind of ex she was. He has seen it himself and heard stories. He couldn’t let their child experience that. So he lied and told her that they would still be friends. Then he made sure she would never get near him or their child again.

Of course, that made it worse. She became consumed with revenge and followed him around, stalking him from the shadows. Always letting him know that she was there and that he’d better look out.

At this point, however, he finds comfort in that. He still loves her and having her close by makes him feel better. He has also seen her crying. That makes him hopeful that she still has sweetness in her.

Recently she’s with another man though. They seem romantically linked. Will doesn’t like it. He decides that this might be the time to talk to Taylor again. And he is far enough with his work that he could focus on her again. He is now able to stop time at least.

So he goes to talk with her. She tells him that she wants to be with Perry. Will doesn’t believe her and offers that she can come back and be with him. He knows he can treat her better than Perry can. He promises to not let her down again. She just needs to take his hand, and she’ll get back the life she has been missing.

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).

93: ‘Dangerous Woman’ by Ariana Grande

Will and Taylor have been dating for a while now. They share more and more of their lives with each other.

So now Will is introducing her to his party life. Going out is not new to her. after all, it was how they met, but with Will, it tends to get out of hand. But she wants to experience it, so she starts going with him when he goes out to drink, with a completely open, ready to experience it.

It is seductive, and she enjoys it a lot. It makes her feel like a dangerous bad girl and gives their love life new flavour. However, she doesn’t approach it like Will and Fergie do, letting go of all control. She is testing her limits but is always focused and aware of where they are.

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.

89: ‘Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off’ by Panic! At The Disco

Will breaks up with his girlfriend – for good this time. Or at least he tries. Because Taylor is not one for letting people break her heart.

So she makes him jealous by saying she’s okay with that because she has been sleeping with someone while they were apart anyway.

It works. Will no longer wants to lose her and wants her to assure him, that she thought of him, even as she was with this other man. He convinces her that he is smarter and a better kisser and lover than any boy she’ll ever meet.

So they stay together. And of course, like all the times before, they start to fight. After only a slight awakening, they are back to their own teenage brand of love.

88: ‘Fumes’ by The Eden Project

Will is with his girlfriend at the moment. He is, however, realising that this relationship – them breaking up when she goes crazy and them getting back together when alcohol paints their relationship in a rosy light – is not meant to last.

But as she is sleeping in his arms, it’s all right for now. They may not be right for each other and they certainly don’t love each other, but it’s better than having nothing.
