2018, chapter 43: ‘Week Without You’ by Miley Cyrus (nr. 155)

A war needs armies to fight them. An army needs motivation. Chainsmoker is providing said motivation, but it’s weighing on her. And her troops feel her control slip. They start to see her as commanding and having a bad attitude and keeping them from the freedom they once had. Do what they want, kiss who they want, wear what they want. Chainsmokers magic is strong, so they don’t stray. The time before her feels so long ago and they remember how she made them feel good, even if she doesn’t now. They would miss her, if she was gone.

2018, Chapter 41: ‘Human’ by Christina Perri (nr.153)

Chainsmoker is the leader of an army. She controls her troops with magic, and it’s weighing on her.

But she believes in her cause and gladly carries this burden. She can fake a smile, force a laugh and generally pretend she is okay and be the strong leader if it frees her people.

But she is only human. And one day she’s had enough. One day she is listening to her demons and suddenly it feels like she has knives in her heart. She falls apart…

2018, chapter 38: ‘Lithium’ by Evanescence (nr. 150)

History wants to happen. So when one sister gets rid of a curse, the other is cursed instead. In her, it turns into the ability to convince people to do as she wishes. She has kept in check with something called Lithium. But after she broke up with her lover, she needed it to rally her troops, who formerly had been a group of violent individuals creating havoc. She turned them into an army fighting a war. And she has to keep using her powers to keep them motivated.

But like with her sister, the powers have as much control over her, as she has over them. She feels empty, sad and wanting something real. At the same time, though, she feels powerful and truly herself in a way she couldn’t with Lithium. Lithium locked her up inside and made her feel less.

She loves her sadness and darkness and finds herself in it. But at the same time, she hates it and wishes she could let it go.

She invites another man into her bed, so she doesn’t have to sleep alone. But he showcases her emptiness rather than hide it. She lashes out and blames him for not saying he loves her.

He cowers but does not leave. She sees his reaction, forgives him and calls him Darling. After all, anything is better than to be alone.

Once she is alone again, she curls up in a corner. She can feel that her having these powers, and feeling this, is wrong somehow. Something is wrong with her

But she needs her powers, needs to let them loose, to get what she wants. She has to fall into this feeling and keep the fight going.

2018, chapter 36: ‘Walk On Water’ by Eminem feat. Beyonce (nr. 148)

Civil war has broken out. On one side is Chainsmoker and Little Mix and their heathens. They champion freedom from attachment and society.

On the other side, of the orderly society, we find Eminem. He is a master of words. He inspires his army trough song. He does so well for years and garners legacy, love and respect. He puts up an exhaustive persona that people look up to – and that he now has trouble living up to. He has set the standard too high for him to keep up. It feels like he hits the mark but when he listens to it after it is shown to the public, he picks it apart. It now sounds like garbage. The rhyme has to be perfect and the delivery flawless. But it can’t always be. And he is terrified to let down people. And people are starting to criticise his songs.

Chainsmoker and Little Mix have noticed this and now make mocking him a part of their strategy. And they succeed in stripping him of his confidence.

So he answers by speaking openly to his supporters. He’s only human just like the rest of them. He can only walk on water when it freezes. He can be juvenile, goof and jest. He is not God-sent like Nas, Rakim, Pac, B.I.G., James Todd Smith or Prince. He makes mistake and feels unworthy of their belief in him. But he’s doing his best to meet their expectations. So he doesn’t care about his opponents’ scorn. The only person who’s scorn would matter, is Deshaun. And even them burning down his Dresden home does nothing to affect him. And no matter how they depict him as a failure, that his popularity is fading, he won’t give up without a fight. He needs this to stay sane. He’ll decide when it’s his final bow. And when he does fall, he will neither cry nor pout.

And he finishes off by saying, that while he is only a man, he is godlike. He, Chainsmoker and Little Mix are not alike. He inspires better than they do. He wrote “Stan”!
