2018, chapter 42: ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’ by Sam Smith (nr. 154)

Will is trying to get Taylor back.

Taylor isn’t interested: “You must think that I’m stupid. You must think that I’m a fool. You must think that I’m new to this. But I have seen this all before.

I’m never gonna let you close to me, even though you mean the most to me, ’cause every time I open up, it hurts. So I’m never gonna get too close to you, even when I mean the most to you, in case you go and leave me in the dirt.

I know you’re thinking I’m heartless. I know you’re thinking I’m cold. I’m just protecting my innocence. I’m just protecting my soul. Every time you hurt me, the less I cry. Every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry. Every time you walk out, the less I love you. Baby, we don’t stand a chance, it’s sad but it’s true.”

She says goodbye again, having gotten way too good at it.

Will is shocked. She isn’t supposed to remember the old timeline

2018, chapter 34: ‘Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken’ by P!nk (nr. 146)

A man is trying to convince his lover to commit to a serious relationship. They have disagreed on this for years, and now he sees that it’ll never get better. He tells her, that she either agrees to them to officially becoming a proper couple, or it’s over between them.

He sees this as a personal conflict between the two of them. She, who goes by the name Chainsmoker,  instead hears critique of the movement she started, her ideals and beliefs. And she understands that she can’t get him or anyone to listen to them unless she uses force. She will have to fight, and maybe die, for this. And luckily she has an army.

And so she goes to rally the troops, with Little Mix’ support. She speaks to the hurt they feel, after society has beat and betrayed them, and promises them their share of this new world, she will create.  She and her army cannot be tied down, not by him or anyone, and she cannot be shut up. This world is sick and broken and she will free it by showing it the truth. No matter how hard it is, they have to try, and they will win.

Because her and Little Mix’ hearts are the heart of their movement, and that heart is wild. And wild hearts can’t be broken.

2018, chapter 33: ‘Shut Up and Dance With Me’ by Walk The Moon (nr. 145)

A bartender is dating a woman, who has an antagonistic attitude towards commitment. Because of this, their relationship hasn’t progressed in years, even though he wants it to.  He has known from the first time she grabbed his arm and dragged him onto the dance floor, that she was his destiny and that they were bound to be together. He remembers the backless dress and beat up sneaks, she was wearing that night fondly. She looked like a discotheque Juliet teenage dream.

He tells her that she’s holding back. She should give herself to the relationship completely.

She disagrees. She urges him to not look back on his old life and expectations, quit his job and just live and dance with her without commitment.

He sees the future in her eyes. He realises that this is his last chance to change her mind.

2018, chapter 31: ‘Grenade’ by Bruno Mars (nr. 143)

People become heathens for different reasons. Bruno became one after having been abused by his girlfriend.

He loved her more than anything. He would catch a grenade for her, throw his hand on a blade for her, jump in front of a train for her, take a bullet for her. And he just wants her to love him just as much.

She doesn’t. She does say, that she loves him, but she’s lying. She wouldn’t do the same for him. In fact, she beats him and damages his car. She takes all she can because she knows that she can easily lose it.

He should have known. He remembers, how she had her eyes open for their first kiss.

But he still loves her and would still go through all that pain, even die for her, even though he knows she won’t do the same for him.

2018, chapter 30: ‘Good Times’ by All Time Low (nr. 142)

Little Mix is trying to talk some sense into Chainsmoker. From her perspective anyway. Chainsmoker sees her concerns but doesn’t agree with them. She tries to tell her that it’s alright. She gets it. She remembers how their friendship and movement started; driving together, singing under the stars. And she’ll never forget.

And while the “punks” in their movement have started picking fights with skater kids in the city, she still remembers when it was just the two of them laughing ’til they cried. how they, with a “Devil may care”-attitude and middle fingers up, angrily challenged society. She’ll never forget, how they first started recruiting people, seeking out boys in black smoking cigarets and girls, who didn’t know love yet and saving them from it.

And she knows that one day, she’ll probably have to leave her lover. She doesn’t want to and will absolutely hate it, but she’ll probably do it. Just not yet.

So really, Little Mix has nothing to worry about. Chainsmoker will never forget what they set out to do and she will always be her friend.

2018, chapter 29: ‘Break Up Every Night’ by The Chainsmokers (nr. 141)

Taylor still misses her ex. But she is not single. She’s in a non-committed relationship. She’s very conflicted over this and breaks up with her boyfriend every night, saying that she needs space, time and reason. But then the very same night she changes her mind and says she needs him now.

It’s a little crazy – as is she. She has seven personalities, everyone one a tragedy. They change all the times, to the point where he is never sure which one he is currently with. One moment she can pretentious (for instance claiming a sense of belonging to Paris, despite having only been to France one time), the next more realistic, the next again jealous and concerned

Her boyfriend kinda loves it though and keeps building on the relationship, even if her personality changes make him run around in circles and have doubt. His nights with her makes him feel alive.

2018, chapter 27: ‘Better Man’ by Little Big Town (nr. 139)

Will and Taylor have had different problems throughout their relationship. In the beginning, cursed magic that made her have to sabotage all of her relationships, including the one with Will. But they managed through that, and there were good times. And Taylor wants those good times back. She still loves him. And he loves her.

He wants to give her a gift. He has worked on a way to control time. And he has now reached a level at which he could erase things from history. In this case, the event that made a young innocent girl into a woman magically controlling men. He changes time so that she never gets her magical abilities, hoping that it’ll clear up their relationship.

Fortunately for him, the relationship still happens. And in the beginning, it is a lot more stable. They are themselves from the start and don’t break up over and over again

Unfortunately, he forgot that he himself was part of the problem. His dislike of change and how he would respond to it, hand in hand with the very focus that led him through med school and later to learn how to control time (eventually leading to his neglecting Taylor). His strong jealousy didn’t make things better either.

So when the changes are made, he finds himself in a timeline in which she has left him. Without her powers, his desire to be in control got out of hand and he damaged her permanently, before finally driving her away. He took for granted that she would never leave and thus talked down to her and pushed away any loving concerns she tried to bring his attention to. But after a while, she had enough. If he didn’t know what he had, he could be without. She gave him her best, and he couldn’t say the same.

What he doesn’t know is that she still misses him, even though she knows leaving was the best thing to do and that she is better off on her own.

She still wishes he could have been a better man. They might still have been in love. He could have been the one.

Failing that, she wishes she could forget the magic, so she wouldn’t still feel his arms around her in the middle of the night.
