2018, chapter 2: ‘Bitch’ by Meredith Brooks (Nr. 114)

Taylor is following her ex, the father of her child. She is an outcast, living outside society, unseen by most.

The exception being this one kind man. One man who takes pity and decides to help her back on her feet. She isn’t particularly nice to him. But he doesn’t care. He keeps coming back.

One day, he catches her in a weak moment, crying about the loss of her old life, her ex-boyfriend who betrayed her, and the child she no longer sees.

He sees this as a sign that underneath this hateful, angry person there is a sweet and kind woman.

She assures him that there isn’t. She’s a confusing mess of emotions, good and bad. She’s a bitch and a lover, a child and a mother, a sinner and a saint. He’ll have to accept that.

It seems he does because he keeps coming back. She begins to accept him but warns him that hanging out with her means he’ll have to be a stronger man. She changes from day-to-day.

He keeps coming back. She actually starts liking him and starts being nice to him once in a while, sometimes his hell, sometimes his dream.

He still tries to save her, to get her back to society. She tells him he can’t. She does however like having him around, helping her out.

They become occasional lovers. She starts helping him in return. She tells him her whole story.

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).

112: ‘Me Too’ by Meghan Trainor

Fergie has led a double-life, but now the secret is out.

Luckily, it only elevates her fame. From being a bit of an outlier, she becomes a celebrity. Everyone wants to be her. And finally, she is happy with herself. She thanks God every day that she can wake up loving herself.

Fame brings admiration, VIP rooms with her friends and free drinks.

She is accepted and happy. She longer needs Will‘s friendship or Evanescence‘s love.

Lyrics

Another year has gone by, Another story over, a new one can begin.

To newcomers: I start out every year with a fresh start. A new story with a new focus. It’s in the same universe and has connections to the previous ones, but it’s easier to understand because the back story is limited to the bare necessities. Will I reuse the same characters? Will it be completely new? We’ll see.

Merry Christmas, happy new year and any other holiday taking place in the immediate future or recent past.

111: ‘Only Prettier’ by Miranda Lambert

Last time Sara met her siblings went less than well.

That is a long time ago now. And one late night, she sees them out with their friends. Sara is sitting and talking with King. They notice her and push away their high life friends, so they don’t see her, before walking up to her.

Sara has missed them and has softened significantly since last time. Still, she can’t herself from mocking them by thanking for saving her from talking to their friends with their southern charm. She comments on how they are still so well-behaved, just like their parents wanted.

She, however, offers up a handshake and a truce. She doesn’t want a fight. They can just agree to disagree and make amends, even though they don’t like each other. They’re after all not that different – Sara is just prettier (same can be said for her friends compared to theirs).

She offers them a drink, but they say no because they’re trying to lose weight. And true, they both weigh 100 pounds and stand 5 foot 3.

So she just says “bless your heart” and buys another drink for herself.

110: ‘Slut Like You’ by P!nk

Fergie has two separate lives.

In one, she’s a pretty pop star. This is how she makes a living. Her image here is a facade.

In another, she goes partying. This is her break. Here she can be crazy and completely herself.

She has managed to keep these lives separate since her partying would hurt her pop star image. Until one night.

She is at this point very drunk. She meets a guy, who recognises her as a pop star. He, however, seems to be looking for the same thing she is; a one-night-stand. She is so relieved she tells him the whole truth.

She goes out, now primarily with other girls also looking for men to take home. They don’t really care all that much about them. But she doesn’t go home with just anyone. And she makes it clear to the guy (what was his name again? Jack? Sam?) that she’s the one in control. She’s not the fool being convinced by him, he is. She’s even the one buying him shots.

He doesn’t seem convinced though and starts to leave. She tries to convince him to stay by calling him a caveman.

109: ‘Good To Be A Man’ by Elle King

Sara doesn’t just dance. She also gets a good talk.

Sara does not have the best opinion of men. And King, the guy she is talking to, does nothing to help that opinion. In his defence, he owns up to it. He admits to not having a conscience and not feeling bad for the awful things he says.

This makes him a perfect target for Sara’s venting: About men drinking until they get mean, chewing tobacco, always having to be right, cheating and just doing dumb things because they should. She tells a story about a guy she knew, who got stuck in a ditch, which she knew, he would.

They agree that being a man is damn good these days.

108: ‘Lose It’ by Oh Wonder

Sara has been messing with an ex-boyfriend’s emotions as revenge. That has however reminded her, that she hasn’t felt this kind of intimacy in a long time. Now she misses it.

So she goes out and finds someone to dance with. She doesn’t even know their name, but she gets the sense of closeness. Her dance partner is so skinny, she can feel their bones beneath their skin. She feels a blood rush in the hazy glow, her heart skips a beat.

Her dance partner feels it too. They look at her wide-eyed. There is a spark between them, a fire in a silver dream. It’s a simple connection, presence in its most basic state.
