Summary: In some cases, these close binary systems can exchange mass, which may bring their evolution to stages that single stars cannot attain.”

You and Jaebum have been dating forever when Mark Tuan shows up in your classroom. You’ve always been against change - a bit debilitating, being a writer - but for some reason this new kid has you thinking there might be an upside to chaos.

Zig x MC - A Playlist

Background Info: In the spirit of slowly returning to sharing things with the world, I thought I’d post the playlist that I’ve spent approximately one month procrastinating on diligently working on. I’m not completely satisfied with the blurbs, so I will definitely come back (after exams *cries*) to edit.

Started as a 30 song playlist, and cut down to 8 tracks. All the highs and lows of our entire The Freshman Book 3 relationship with Zig, with lots of angst and introspection. Some songs pertain to Zig x MC; others to each individual character.

Photos taken from Pexels, and edited by me in Photoshop. Hope you enjoy listening! 💕 Click on each song title for the link. I highly recommend listening to each song while looking at the visuals, lyrics, and analysis. 😉


1) “Heart Out” The 1975  
An upbeat, atmospheric alt rock anthem to teenage love, personal issues, and monotony.

And once we started having friends round
You created a television of your mouth
—–
You got something to say
Why don’t you speak it aloud, instead of living in your head?
It’s always the same
Why don’t you take your heart out, instead of living in your head?
—–
It’s just you and I tonight
Why don’t you figure your heart out?

We are reeling from suitemate drama and uncertainty when we stumble upon the enigmatic barista at the Hartfeld coffee shop. He shoots us knowing smirks, flirtatious remarks, and oh, it is working.

The curve of his half smile, the curl of his deep hair, the heat of his toffee-warm skin washes over us. Risk is nothing when there’s endless possibilities in his gaze.

The start of the quarter is the perfect time to step away from the televisions (or books) inside our minds and take risks, to ground ourselves in new realities. Zig is something new, and very real.


2) “Smoke Filled Room” Mako
A tropical, uplifting EDM track about the unstoppable girl who walks into chaos with her chin held high.

Isn’t it a little late?
Shouldn’t you fly away?
—–
Take a step around the room
And every head keeps turning too
Little dove, you fight ‘em back
Show ‘em you’re so much more than that
—–
Walk into a smoke filled room.
Oh no one could keep their eyes off you.
Have a little drink or two
Oh how could you be that girl I knew?

Soaring vocals brim with adrenaline, courage, and tenderness. That night, we head out into a strange world of dusky romances and dangerous people. Yet somehow, we always prove our past selves wrong.

Fragile. We walk into the Gutter Kitten’s crowded show only to be met with icy stares (and ice queens). We stand our ground, telling off the rude band members and turning up the charm to an 11 with our coffeeshop cutie. We fight ‘em all back.

Magnetic. In our “little black dress” at Madison’s birthday party, Zig is transfixed. He craves complexity, the satisfaction of stripping apart a problem layer by layer. Our fire, our loyalty, our three dimensionality captivates this lover of permutations, logic. In the smoky magic of our late night bar escapade, he takes us apart. Slowly. Tenderly.


3) “Livewire” Oh Wonder
A poignant, sparse piano and beat-driven ballad, contemplating two individuals who have become intertwined.

Counting my losses as I let them go.
Heavy the water as I sink below.
—–
I’ve been pretending all my shots are blown.
Cover my heart up, never let it show.
I’m shaking it off to find a higher low.
—–
So hold me when I fall away from the lines.
When I’m losing it all, when I’m wasting the light.
And hold me when I put my heart in your hands.
—–
Oh, won’t you be my livewire?
Make me feel like I’m set on fire.

Covering up hearts, igniting fires, and letting walls down: how fitting that the themes here tie in with those of the other songs. As the relentless yearning to explore one another in dimly lit rooms and memorize each other’s complexities simmers down, our relationship spins into something deeper.

Grazing touches and gentle murmurs become even more fleeting, soft. When we hold each other tightly, slight frame on top of strong, sturdy, in the backseat of his old car, we realize that somehow within the span of weeks, we’ve become inseparable. 

His confessions topple our own walls. As the night goes on, we mold ourselves into each other. Our dependence on one another is intoxicating.


4) “Breaking the Habit” Linkin Park
A hypnotic, downtempo rock song that depicts the gritty reality of addiction, dangerous habits, and resentment.

Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I’m picking me apart again
—–
Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
—–
I’ll paint it on the walls
Cause I’m the one at fault
—–
I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
So, I’m breaking the habit tonight

Things begin to spin out of control. One moment, he’s brittle, too quick to snap, to accuse others of false play, to push them away. In a split second, he’s soft again, murmuring gentle reassurances and apologies.

We cannot understand his volatility. Fresh from the burn of an unfair, one-sided fight, we crack under the pressure. Everything gushes out.

The last thing we see is his back, taut with hard-earned, unwanted strength, tense with years of the strain of helplessness as his loved ones are damaged permanently. He has been cornered for so much of his life that running is a luxury.

For him, the anger gnaws and carves away at his insides. All his adrenaline, his sadness, his quick temper feeds the addictive kick. He knows no existence without it. For us, everything dries up. What hurts more, his leaving, or the ease, the relief, with which he leaves? We sink into the deep, because we don’t know if he’ll be coming back. If he even wants to.

What we don’t know if that he’s the one tearing himself apart again.


5) “Nothing” The Script
A stricken, pop rock ballad lamenting a damaged relationship and one man’s anguish.

Oh, sometimes love’s intoxicating.
Oh, you’re coming down, your hands are shaking.
When you realize there’s no one waiting.
—–
Cause I’m shouting your name all over town.
I’m swearing if I go there now.
I could change her mind turn it all around.
—–
So I, dialed her number and confessed to her
I’m still in love, but all I heard
Was nothing.
—–
I wanted words, but all I heard was nothing.

We did not get the chance to see Zig’s perspective after MC leaves for California. For me, this song fills in the blank spaces. I wonder what emotions must have been running through his mind. Resentment? Regret? I imagine him playing the fight over and over again, and beating himself up for lashing out.

We know that whatever he felt, it was strong enough to compel him to dial MC’s number–and, to be completely crushed when she ignored his call. It was the final straw: the confirmation that MC did not care about him. Her silence hurt infinitely more than a punch in the face. And so, the walls go up. He hunkers himself down behind defensiveness once again.

But to finally find someone who loved him for who he was, and to lose her in an instant, stings. He knows that things could have gone differently.


6) “Poison” luhx.
A stirring, indie and electronica track about apprehension, toxic relationships and choices, and the road to self-forgiveness.

I’ve been on either side of letting someone down and
I don’t know which one is worse
—–
Your toxin takes its time to settle in
When you said how much my skin reminded of home
Time seemed to numb my sins
—–
I laid down all my walls so you could lay here next to me
I know now…
—–
Too much of anything is poison
And it’s laced upon your lips
But the cure is in the venom, so I keep on coming back
My soul is stained with your poison

Admittedly, this toxic relationship is a bit too dark for our reunion. Yet, there is something promising about the song’s raw honesty.  It speaks of newfound wisdom, awareness, all qualities that make for a future of healing. “Poison” then captures Zig’s relationship with his past, his demons, and his journey to self acceptance.

Anger was Zig’s poison. It gave him what justification he needed to hate the world that dealt him this hand, to fight back against bullies, to have tasted and now expect rejection, and to avoid disappointment by putting up barriers around all of his relationships. In time, his numbness to his own aspirations became part of him.

Too much anger, however, and everything crashed. Inside, all he wanted was to be free. To believe in himself and his dreams once again. When he first met us in the coffee shop, he caught a glimpse of that brimming courage he once had, many years ago.

He fears that he is broken beyond repair. Perhaps this anger is now laced within his veins, toxic vines twisting around his heart, skin stained with bitter rejection.

There is beauty in his fear and newfound awareness. We are hopeful.


7) “Love Somebody” Ta-Ku ft. Wafia
An evocative, soulful indie-edm ballad and duet whose lyrics speak of a relationship on the mend.

Darling understand, my faith wavers when I can’t see the end
And I know you truly believe that our love will keep us from the edge
—–
I know we’ll never get it right
We only ever seem to fight
Anyone else would walk away
When you love somebody then you stay

The end-of-the-quarter dance dazzles with the promise of new beginnings. To our joy, Zig is about to embark on his college journey! And, amid blushing and stammering confessions, he’ll do so with us–his favorite girl–by his side.

Under the blossoms of the fairy light-strung cherry trees, we twirl about on the dance floor, hearts light and gazes warm. He can’t stop staring at us, but this time, he knows that we’re his. And he, ours.

The future can come with all that it brings. As his hands make their home on our waist, we are content to press our face into his broad shoulder and just breathe. His hope is sweet as the air.


8) “Arrest Me” Shy Girls ft. Tei Shi
A sultry, electronica ode to wandering hands, the playful battle for dominance, and waves of pleasure.

You got me tripping on my walk like I’m a novice.
Something about you on the top, if I’m honest
Running in circles around me, cuz you know I love it
—–
I’m gonna let you tie me up tonight
And you can read my rights, if that’s alright
I’ll loosen up your ropes and let you bite
I wanna feel your touch
—–
(Arrest Me)

Like our bedroom escapade, this lush, achingly sexy track needs no explanation. Teasing, probing, begging. Surrendering and asserting have never tasted so perfectly together.

Zig makes us crave something deeper, almost animalistic, and we can’t control the hitch of our breath when he crumbles under our touch. How is it that we render him speechless in the coffeehouse, in the car, under the night sky, on our bed, one body pressing into the other, moans echoing against the walls?

There is heat everywhere. His gaze smolders, sends one quake after another shuddering through our pinned frame. 

After, we lay together, nestled together among the bedsheets, his arm still draped over us. His hands feel rough, but his caresses gentle. As much as we love the storm, we relish the calm. The steady rising of his chest, his soft snore, almost childlike, as we drift away.


Whenever I make playlists for characters or stories, I always try to base the songs off of the feeling, rather than the actual lyrics. “Smoke Filled Room” and “Poison” felt the most ‘Zig’ to me; “Heart Out” and “Arrest Me,” the least. Regardless, I hope you liked my rambling musics and sound bites! Now back to my exam preparation… 😭

Headcanons: Music

Eren: I believe he would listen to really upbeat, passionate music. Something that really gets him pumped and going, some sort of rock anthem or any genre that can inspire him and he can easily relate to.

Armin: Armin would probably enjoy classical music because it’s intellectually stimulating and he can probably play idk how many instruments if we’re being real here.

Jean: He would most likely be into anything really, Jean for the most part wouldn’t really narrow it down to just one genre. Just because he seems like the type to not limit himself musically.

Connie: Connie would probably like rap and hip hop, even though he cannot for the life of him ever accomplish getting through one song without messing up.

Annie: Annie would probably listen to music that encases most of what she feels but doesn’t show. She’s not adverse to listening to a slow, piano song. Of course, if you confront her about it she’ll vehemently deny it.

Bertoldt: Bert would be into the really underground music, the bands or artists that don’t get much recognition, solely because he finds it interesting, or different from all the radio music.

Reiner: Would most likely be into something like EDM, or Trap because he lives for the beat drops.

Sasha: Would most likely listen to pop, and would occasionally play the really obnoxious so ha because they’re catchy. Though at times she finds herself trying to out-do Connie at rapping. (They both fail miserably.)

Mikasa: Mika would most likely like anything that has a soft, mellow tone to it. Maybe an acoustic song with deep, meaningful lyrics.

Christa/Historia: Would be totally ironic if she blasted heavy metal, and hard rock out of the blue. She headbangs and everything.

Ymir: Is head banging right beside her Christa.

Mike: Probably likes bands like Coldplay, or the 1975. Only does it for his aesthetic.

Erwin: Daddy Erwin would probably like really classy music, like Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole, or Cab Calloway. Jazzy, and oldie.

Hanji: Would blast country music just to troll everyone. Secretly likes it a bit, yet she hates it. Has good taste in music, but she has everyone genuinely believing she likes country.

Levi: Levi would most likely be into Old Rock, or 90’s grunge. He can relate to some songs about hardship, and he genuinely appreciates the music from back then as opposed to what comes out on the radio.

10 COMMANDMENTS: STEVIE NICKS - Q Magazine, March 2017

THE FLEETWOOD MAC SINGER DELIVERS HER GOLDEN RULES FOR LIVING. 

1 MAKE LIKE A BOY OR GIRL SCOUT: BE PREPARED 

I’m scared, that’s what I am. Before shows, some people – me, Mick [Fleetwood, [ drummer], we get panic attacks. I have always been terribly nervous before shows. So I am so rehearsed and ready that I could be dead and stand up there and still sing the right words and do the right thing. Cocaine almost killed me. It’s better to just not do it. Eventually you’ll have to stop so start saving your money for rehab now. 

2 THE DRUGS DON’T WORK, THEY JUST MAKE IT WORSE 

Touring with Fleetwood Mac in the ’70s, cocaine was almost part of the daily routine. But when I talk about it now, I would never want the kids of today to think that I’m saying it was something good. Cos it really wasn’t something good. It almost destroyed my life. It almost killed me, and almost killed a lot of people I know. So if anybody thinks it’s safe now – it’s not. It’s better to just not do it. Because you will eventually have to stop, so start saving your money for rehab now. It’s so expensive. 

3 LYRICISTS! WATCH YOUR CUSS WORDS 

I’ve been listening to The Weeknd’s records. I play them one after the other when I’m in my bathroom getting ready to go out, or just hanging out with myself. He’s brilliant. And his voice – he could have come straight out of 1975 – he could have been like Stevie Winwood. He’s over-talented. But if I were to meet him, I would probably say: “You say over and over again words that I would prefer you didn’t say. I think they’re unnecessary. However, even though I think a lot of your songs are super-dirty, I still really like ’em! So I’ve given you a pass on that!” 

4 SINGERS! WATCH YOUR SYLLABLES 

I saw Adele at the Grammys [Adele had to restart a performance of George Michael’s Fastlove], and that song was a very hard song to sing for George Michael. It’s all about the syllables. I have a song on my 24 Karat Gold album, Mabel Normand, that’s exactly the same. That’s the reason we’re not doing it onstage. Because if you take a breath, you get off the beat. You’re one word too late, you can never get back on, and you’re dead in the water. 

5 YOU’RE A ROCK STAR – THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS A SICKIE 

Onstage is the one time you can’t bemoan how you feel. Even if you have pneumonia, you have to say: “I’m leaving that in the dressing room and I’m walking out and I’m gonna be great. And when I come offstage, then I can burst into tears.” 

6 WRITING TIMELESS POP OR EPIC FANTASY – EACH IS AS HARD AS THE OTHER

I love Game Of Thrones. [Author Author] George RR Martin is my age [68 ] and it blows my mind that he’s able to create this vast, interlinked world. As a songwriter I write little movies, but I can’t imagine writing even one small book. But then, probably, somebody like him would say, “I couldn’t imagine writing Landslide.” 

7 DON’T FEAR THE PRODUCER 

In the 24 Karat Gold show, I’m singing songs that are new old songs – the ones that should have gone on [Fleetwood Mac’s] Tusk and Tango In The Night, and on [solo albums] Bella Donna, The Wild Heart and Rock A Little. And they didn’t: not because they weren’t good enough, but because I didn’t like how they were done at the time. I didn’t like the producers’ concept, whether it was Lindsey [Buckingham, Fleetwood Mac bandmate] or Jimmy Iovine. So I pulled them. So the way the songs are recorded on 24 Karat Gold is exactly how they were done as demos. 

8 LEARN FROM THE GREATS. AND TAKE FROM THE GREATS

I give Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and [Jefferson Airplane singer] Grace Slick the three nods. From Grace I got her slinky-ness. Janis was just little with a big attitude and big hair and feathers, and a drop-dead amazing voice. And Jimi was completely and utterly humble. So from those three people I got slinky, attitude and humility – and that was my stage performance. 

9 RESPECT OTHER ARTISTS, WHEREVER THEY ARE ON THE BILL 

Chrissie Hynde and I have been touring America together. She’s just fantastic. A lot of the people in her group say they haven’t seen her that happy in 30 years. And I love that so much. Because I never wanted Chrissie to feel like she was opening for me. I wanted her to feel that it was a complete and utter double bill. But because the tour was my idea, I got to go on last, basically.

10 BE AN EASY WRITER, AND AN EASY ROCKER

I’ve always loved Tom Petty, from Refugee to Breakdown, all thosesongs. Tom’s an easy writer – very unlike Lindsey, more like myself. When Tom goes up there onstage, he might as well be in his studio or his living room with the stereo banging. 

Stevie Nicks plays BST Hyde Park on 9 July. Tickets are available now.

Two years ago today, one of my favorite people did something beautiful for me. Matty Healy brought me on stage at a the 1975 show for the song Robbers and made me the happiest person ever. I love this band more than anything and this song is so special to me. The lyrics from the song “if you never shoot, you’ll never know” have resonated with me ever since I first heard Robbers. Those words are always in the back of my mind and have pushed me to do new things, try new things, and step out of my comfort zone for the sole reason of not knowing what can come from it. Robbers is a love song and the 1975 is about love and I got a rose tattooed on me today to represent all of these things. Thank you @the1975music for everything, I’ll see you soon ❤️

There’s this elite thing, where everybody’s petrified of the idea that you could want your music to reach lots of people, but that’s what excites me. The idea of starting in a room and then bleeding out across humanity, the idea of one of my songs being on in a car while people are having an argument that really matters to them, or a song being on when somebody has that moment when they feel really alive. I want that. I don’t want unaspirational bullshit. There is no time for it in art. I come on stage and go: ‘This is what I do and I’m proud of it.’
—  Matty Healy

Eurovision 2017: The worst lyrics in the song contest's history

Believe it or not, Eurovision was set up to “stimulate the output of high-quality songs in the field of popular music” – not that you’d know from some of the corkers that have come out of the song contest to date.

Here’s a brief run-through of some of the worst offenders from throughout the years:

Austria: Trackshittaz (semi-final, 2012) ‘Woki mit deim Popo’

“Your bum has feelings, your bum is a part of you, Don’t put it on chairs, your bum has an opinion, yeah”

Montenegro:, Euro Neuro (semi-final, 2012), ‘Rambo Amadeus’

“I got only one rule, always stay cool like a swimming pool”

Netherlands: Teach-In (winners, 1975), ‘Ding-a-Dong’

“And you walk along with your ding-dang-dong”

Germany: Lena (winner, 2010) ‘Satellite’

“I even painted my toe nails for you / I did it just the other day”

“I bought new underwear, they blue / And I wore ‘em just the other day”

Finland: Lordi, (winner, 2007) ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’

“It’s the Arockalypse…On the Day of Rockoning”

Latvia: Marie N (winner, 2002), ‘I Wanna’

“You make me sweat”

Estonia: Tanel Padar, Dave Benton & 2XL (winners, 2001), ‘Everybody’

“And roll the carpet from the floor / Haha, carpet from the floor, yeah”

Sweden: Herreys (winners, 1984), ‘Diggi-loo, Diggi-ley’

“Diggi-loo diggi-ley, everybody’s looking at me"

Austria: Alf Poier (6th place, 2003), ‘Weil der Mensch zählt’

“The difference between people / Between apes and primates / It-it’s not much bigger / Than between noodles and pancake stripes / Pancake stripes”

Russia: Buranovskiye Babushki (2nd place, 2012), ‘Party for everybody’

“The cat is happy, the dog is happy, the cat is happy, the dog is happy, we are in a wonderful mood and very happy, we are in a wonderful mood, oh joy”

Ireland: Dustin the Turkey (semi-finals 2008), ‘Irlande Douze Points’

“Drag acts and bad acts and Terry Wogan’s wig / Mad acts and sad acts, it was Johnny Logan’s gig”

“Block votes! Shock votes! Give us your 12 today”

“Yes it’s Bulgaria we love you Belarus, Georgia, Montenegro, Moldova, Albania, Croatia, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Macedonia, don’t forget Turkey, Hungary, Estonia, Slovakia, Armenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and don’t forget the Swiss….. Cheese”

My band took off, my family fell apart. My parents got divorced. It’s kinda good – no good marriage ever ended in divorce. If two people had a really good thing going on and they had to get divorced, that would be really sad. But that’s never happened once. That’s fine. That was a long time coming. December of last year I went on tour and they sold that house. I went home for two days to move out of my house, and I wrote and recorded Is There Somebody Who Can Watch You?, the last song on the album, about that moment. So I left and I’ve not really been home since. But I’ve fucking embraced it, man. Because you take the good with the bad. I don’t have a home, but I have a thousand people come and see me, whatever city I’m in. If you can’t feel at home there, where can you feel at home?

Painting, storms, 1975!

painting: what is the best halloween costume you have ever put together? if none, make one up.

Ohhh, I’m not exactly proud of it, but it was immensely complicated and well put-together. I painted my face HELLA nice for it. I was a 1920s esqueleta. Marigolds, fedora, vest, skeleton face paint, the works.

storms: you on only listen to one song for the rest of your life, or only see one person for the rest of your life. which and why?

Hermit-y as I am, probably one song for the rest of my life.

1975: what is the first happy memory that comes to mind, recent or otherwise?

Picking up April’s cat and getting to cuddle him without him freaking out. :>

yep, I’m emo and anime trash hahahahaha

Can this album come out already? I’m seeing all these pieces of lyrics, people (especially anons) freaking out about every single word. I bet if I was like idk, in the 1975 fandom, I would hate their songs, if I saw ppl analysing the lyrics line by line or complaining that ‘omg a guy sings about fucking women, how impossible and shocking that he’s not out there singing about social justice and other “important” stuff’. Like! Who cares??? It’s music! I just want to enjoy it!

anonymous asked:

What do you mean by 'queer content'?

The phenomenon was inexplicable, the first time it happened. The year was 1975; the album was Fleetwood Mac (also known as the White Album); the track was #2 on the b-side. A whole swath of the population who had eagerly purchased and eagerly played the album only heard static, the press of the record needle into vinyl when no music was coming out, for a span of three minutes and nineteen seconds.

Some thought that it was a joke track, perhaps an addition from new band member Stevie Nicks. It was questioned, and not often understood – particularly since there was a whole other portion of the population who said that Landslide wasn’t meant to emulate the tension and feeling of staticky dread that a landslide would come sweeping over them – that it was actually a truly beautiful, emotional, heart-wrenching song. 

Confusion only grew when the band started touring. Midway through the set, the band would act like they were playing instruments, mouth words into the microphone… but no sound would come out. So swore half the people in the audience every single time.

The other half were befuddled by these claims. “Landslide is a gorgeous song live,” they insisted. “Truly beautiful. Truly touching.”

It took a full six months for people to start putting two and two together. The internal consistency in the group who claimed there was no such song as Landslide and those who claimed that it existed, and moved them, was clear: heterosexuals could not process the song. They did not have the emotional capacity; they did not have the fortitude; they did not have the ear. Only people fitting within the ‘queer’ umbrella could perform, hear, or otherwise experience the song.

Despite advancements in science and technology. the basic Landslide divide never changed. Forty-one years and ten months to the day since the song was first released to non-heterosexual masses, no one found a way to bridge the gap. Many tried, but the fact remains: Landslide is a song that exists only for the queer among us. No single heterosexual in the world has ever heard it, and no single heterosexual in the world ever will. It’s a pity for them, to be sure, but at least they will never have any idea what they are missing.

I bet you thought I’d never do this @onelionheart but here we go: music on suffle, list the 10 first songs that come up, then tag 10 people

Okay wow this is gigantic and it’s a the 1975 AU, cowritten by me and honestly super super creative sweet and amazing @war-boyfriends
-Grantaire who never really tells anyone he’s in a band and no one really finds out until they become famous
-Like he has no idea how it happens
He puts some covers up on youtube and they’re reasonably popular and then his originals get recieved a lot better than expected
-This leads to a few underground gigs and the loose promise from an indie record label about an album
-Okay so pretty much the entirety of the first album is based off R’s time as a stoned teenager with Eponine and all the shit that they got up to, and Les Amis and a certain blonde boy
-I mean ‘Chocolate’ pretty much sums up his teenage years with Ep
-‘She Way Out’ is for Cosette, for the first time he met her, at a meeting, being introduced as Marius’s girlfriend
-He’d had a particularly bad fight with Enjolras that night, but instead of being weirded out by it, she just smiles sadly at him, like she knows everything (and she probably does because grantaire is paper thin at the best of times)
-“She said ‘I’d love you to stay but that’s simply insane / I’ve got a feeling that my friends are gonna kick in your brain’”
-And ‘girls’ is basically an ode to all the girls he fooled around with when he was trying to forget a certain revolutionary
-“I know you’re looking for salvation in the secular age, but, girl, I’m not your savior.”
-Grantaire writes about what’s in front of him, there’s no smoke and mirrors, he just see’s what’s in front of him and it comes out as lyrics to songs people seem to like?
-‘So far (It’s alright)’ is about his last few meetings with Les Amis, and his relationship with Enjolras, which is rocky at best
-“He’s got a heart made of stone but he never gets cold because the sun’s always on his back/I used to think you’re cool and I believed you had a wonderful vision/But I soon found out you’re a terrible friend and your mother’s on the television”
-'Robbers’ is about a rally– the last one Grantaire ever attends with Les Amis
-It’s messy and violent and utterly useless
-But of course Enjolras doesn’t really like it when Grantaire points that out
-“I’ll give you one more time/ We’ll give you one more fight/Said one more line/Be a riot, cause I know you”
-And Enjolras ends up badly beaten up and R has to physically drag him away from the protest
-They get back to R’s apartment where he attempts to bandage Enjolras up
-Of course tensions mount and things are said and it’s ugly
-Enjolras says some bad things but R retaliates in equal force
-Which is how we get ‘Settle Down’
-“And you’re sure that I’d learn/I’m pushing through bodies/Avoiding me and walking 'round you/And you’re cold and I burn/I guess I’ll never learn”
-In the heat of the moment, Grantaire confesses he loves Enj.
-Who reacts very badly. He’s already got months of planning wasted on a rally gone wrong, and R was already provoking him and he lashes out worse than he’s ever had before
-“What did I tell you 'bout this girl?
The one to rearrange your world?
You got excited and now you find that your 'girl’ won’t even get you undressed or care about your beating chest”
-He tells Grantaire he may as well give up because he’s not going to love him back
- “It’s not about reciprocation, this is not about me. A syncophantic, profantic, Socratic junkie wannabe.”
-And that’s the last time either of them see each other, because then Grantaire is getting a phone call to say he’s signed, the record label has signed him, he’s making an album holy shit
-But of course it’s Grantaire,
And sometimes music is just an easier way to deal with the Bad days
-“I gave you something you can never give back, don’t you mind?/You see my face like a heart attack, don’t you mind?
Oh I was thinking about killing myself, don’t you mind?/I love you, don’t you mind don’t you mind?”
-The very last thing he writes before he leaves for tour is for Gavroche
-“And when I’m home you know I got you/Is there somebody who can watch you?”
-Because leaving your friends is one thing and Eponine is another but Gavroche?
The poor kid who still has deal with his shitty parents trying to get back custody just so they can cash in on the child benefits
-Then R is literally whisked away to record his album
-There’s a text in the group chat that he’ll be away for work for a bit and not to worry but that’s it
-And the album gets recorded but before it’s released he’s asked to go play a gig at a festival
-And then another one and another one and it just grows arms and legs
-Ep is the only one who knows about the extent of his fame
-Hell the rest of the Amis barely even know the name of Grantaire’s band he changed it so much
-Even then they don’t find out from him, they find out when they hear the words “Grantaire, the frontman of the 1975” on the radio
-And Courf just FREAKS and puts everyone on speaker phone so they can hear it to because he seriously might be delusional???
and he seriously needs to talk to R right now, but R won’t fucking pick up his phone and he’s been missing for the past few weeks and oh shit it suddenly makes sense why he’s gone
-Enj tries to pretend none of this affects him, but shit, how did R manage to hide something so big from all of them???
-Eventually they get a text in the group chat that basically equated to ‘oh hey guys sorry I forgot to mention that the bad took off but things have been rlly hectic? Like we recorded the album and then got festival gigs and it all kinda took off anyways I’m super sorry!’
-Enjolras takes this a step further by refusing to have anything to do with the 1975. The Sound comes on on the radio? One time he literally lunged from the back seat and elbowed Courf in the face trying to switch stations. Joly and Bossuet come in one day with matching grins and 1975 t-shirts? He sent them home to change and threatened to pour his coffee on both of them if they didn’t do so.
-He tries to pretend he does all of this not because its the 1975, but because “you’re sponsoring capitalism by wearing those shirts”, or “There was a fly on the radio knob Courf! What was I supposed to do?!?!”
-Unfortunately one day Courf convinced him to take a couple of shots, and let’s face it, Enj is a gigantic fucking lightweight. UGH! came on in the bar and Enj is dancing and smiling and laughing and oh my gosh the singer’s voice is so pretty and who’s this song from?
-(Also this is on video and Courf totally sent this to R, who had a smile on his face for the rest of the day when he saw this)
-Enj still declares that he hates the 1975 and never ever wants to fucking listen to them but ever since that night he’s become a massive closet fan and will do anything to hide this fact
-(Ex. Jailbreaking his phone in order to make it so no one can get into his music app without a password)
-(Also imagine a song coming on and Enj trying his best not to sing along but he can’t help but angrily mumble out some of the lyrics)
-And all the while Grantaire is somewhere across the world touring and trying to get Enjolras out of his damn head but nothing’s working
-So he does what he always does to get his thoughts in check– he writes
-“I don’t want your body but I’m picturing your body with somebody else/ Our love has gone cold, you’re intertwining your soul with somebody else”
-And he keeps adding to it, little ways throughout the tour, words coming to him as he sees pictures of him uploaded to facebook and instagram and nope that little crush hasn’t gone away)
-“Got someone you love?” He writes one night, angry and sad and unbearably sober. “Got someone you need? Fuck that, get money. I can’t give you my soul ‘cause we’re never alone.”
-He grows more and more bitter throughout the tour, and becomes more and more aware of all the words Enjolras has said to him, and that Enjolras will never reciprocate his love. He tries to pretend that he’s over it, and that it doesn’t matter to him. And above all, he’s absolutely fucking angry about everything.
-“You’re so conceited, I said I loved you. What does it matter if I lied to you? I don’t regret it but I’m glad that we’re through, so don’t you tell me that you just don’t get it cause I know you do.”
-One day while he’s absolutely smashed, he realizes he’s never ever going to stop fucking caring and while it hurts, he’ll deal with it.
-“And I know when you’re around, cause I know the sound, I know the sound of your heart”
-He gets texts from the Amis– little stuff like “saw ur set at Electric picnic it was lit!! So proud of you :D”
And that brings such a smile to his face and makes him so happy
-But then he’ll remember the radio silence from Enjolras and it hurts like a bitch
-“And if I believe you, would that make it stop?/If I told you I need you, is that what you want?/ I’m broken and bleeding and begging for help/ And I’m asking you, jesus, show yourself”
-His fan base keeps growing and growing, old fans that have been there since his shitty ep’s and new ones that say the chart toppers are their favourites
-But he’s fucking grateful for all of them, even if it sometimes makes it a little harder for him
-“Reading ‘bout yourself on a plane, fame, what a shame/ And love me, if that’s what you want to do, oh-oh”
-Meanwhile, Enj has kept minimal contact with R since R has left for tour, and he often checks up on him through tabloids (not the most reliable way)
-So when he sees rumors of R and George (the drummer) together he absolutely fucking freaks out and thinks about the second album (i like it when you sleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it), and /fuck/ was that album for George?
-And tours are so fucking hard
-They drain Grantaire emotionally and physically and he gives everything he has but now he’s coming up empty
-The silence from Enjolras, Enjolras, whom he pours his heart out to every goddamn night, feels so damning, so horrible
-One night when he’s doing his set he looks out in the crowd and realises he knows no one
-There’s no Eponine screaming manically in the back
-And he’s here, wrenching his heart out but who are these people to him?
-They’re never going to understand his lyrics, and they’ll never understand the pain and the tears that had went into them. They’re never going to actually care about him, and most importantly, they’re never going to fill that emptiness only his friends can occupy
-“Oh fuck, oh fuck. No. I can’t do this. I’m not fucking doing this.”
-And then someone screaming “I love you, R!”
-But that doesn’t matter, because Enjolras doesn’t love him, so what’s the fucking point?
-He’s fucking unloveable
-“Trust me, you don’t. You love the idea.”
The rest of the set passes in a blur and they’re halfway through Me when he looses it
-He doesn’t even remember how it happens, exactly, but he’s halfway through “I love you, don’t you mind don’t you mind?” And he’s remembering too vividly and fuck he’s crying how embarrassing is that, what would Les Amis think if they saw this?
-But that just makes it worse, and suddenly he’s being coaxed off stage by George
-Of course that does wonders for the tabloid rumours that Enjolras is so reliant on
-And when Enjolras sees the video, he nearly cries himself
-It doesn’t go viral, thank god, so none of the other Amis see it, and if they do, they don’t mention it
-Things like these fucking overwhelm him and it gets even worse when R comes back from tour
-R’s different this time. He doesn’t yell anymore drunken disagreements and he won’t meet Enjolras’s eyes. He still keeps to his bottle, but he leaves as soon as the meetings are over. After three weeks of this going on, he stops coming all together, and cuts off contact with the Amis
-“For goodness sake/I wasn’t told you’d be this cold/Now it’s my time to depart and I just had a change of heart”
-Enjolras is absolutely fucking devastated. His mind won’t stop running with thoughts of why, and who is he with, is he with George, has he honestly left them?
Has he honestly left him?
-He doesn’t hear a word about Grantaire until the Change of the Heart video comes out.
-Grantaire’s dressed in clown makeup and seems so happy, until the end when he’s left alone in the rain without anyone else to turn to.
-Grantaire made this video about Enjolras, because he’s trying to pretend to be someone else he’s not and he’ll forget Enjolras this way and in the end, he remembers none of these people who claim to love him are Enjolras and he’s all alone.
-Then the “Somebody Else” video comes out.
-The first three minutes are full of Grantaire coming back to a black and white apartment, washing the makeup from the Change of the Heart video off, while an unresponsive figure sits on the couch. A laugh track plays throughout this scene, an audience clapping, watching.
-(always watching, also monitoring and analysing every move he makes everything he says he’s exhausted)
-This is R’s way of communicating no matter how many times he fucking pretends, and no matter how fucking hard he tries, he’s always going to come back to bare his soul in front of Enjolras, while Enjolras is always going to be unresponsive to how much he loves him.
-The next portion of the video is Grantaire entering a world of colors, too intense for the eye. He lashes out, punches a wall, and fucks a stripper. In the last few minutes he sees himself in everything. He sees himself in the strippers face, the two people looking at him concernedly in the corner. It represents that the only thing he can see in this fake world he has created for himself to forget is what he was trying to escape from; how he’d bared his soul and got nothing in return, and that now all he has is himself. Even then he’s not reliable.
-Eventually he records a video for Paris.
-It’s a song that he’s hidden away for a long time, unsure how it will do in the light because there’s no real filter to it, it’s just raw emotion
-“And then she pointed at a bag of her dreams, in a well posh magazine, I said I’m done, babe I’m out of the scene”
-“And how I’d love to go to Paris again”
-There’s nothing separating him from his audience, he’s laying it all out
-And the video is nothing special, either. It’s simple, it’s him walking around his old joints, places he knew like the back of his hand that he’s lost his grip on
-The bar that he used to play at every Saturday night, empty with changed decor
-And he discovers some of his places have disappeared since he had left. His apartment, cold and draughty and empty and untouched for nearly three years. The printing shop, where he printed flyers for the Amis and where a large portion of his interactions with Enjolras have taken place.
-But one fixed point, always.
-Café Musain.
-It ends with him walking in, sitting down in his same seat, and staring up at the empty chairs at empty tables that will still hold all his friends in a matter of hours
-He looks up at the the table that Enjolras is so fond of standing on, and as the camera focuses on his wistful countenance.
-The video ends as his face, full of equal amounts of hope and despair, looks up at the door where he hears the jingle of the bell and sees Enjolras, staring frozen with the expression of a deer in headlights upon his face.

I’m working on making a text post with all the links to the songs, and there may be a part two??? But either way go check out @war-boyfriends and the 1975 because Matty Healy is actually Grantaire ;)
