don't mind me i'm just writing my life out

I think that if we had met under the right circumstances, we would’ve been perfect for each other. But life doesn’t work that way, and I’m always a little too late.

-We could’ve written a love story for the ages.


  • Me: I'm so glad I have one scene in this three chapter segment which I don't have to rewrite from scratch.
  • Me, after reading said scene: Never mind, I'm rewriting everything. Rewriting the entire book. Rewriting myself out of existence.
I’d follow you into the ends of the earth even if it meant that it would be the end of me on this earth.

-As long as I’m with you.

And, there it is. Complete. All finished. It only took me about five months!

I saved the sappiness for the end of the notes, but I will say here: Thank you so much for all your support. This story would not have been completed without you. For realsies. 

And, Happy Birthday to andavs, who has heard me bitch about this fic SO MUCH and never seemed to mind. I told ya I would have it done by your birthday! :)

I don’t want to be in a relationship where we’re just going through the motion of it all just because it’s comfortable, safe, and familiar. I’m not looking for simple motions but rather moves that are life changing and monumental. I’d rather it end before we amount to simple gestures.

-Give me comfort. Give me passion.


The signs as 1989 Lyrics:
  • Aries: "Standing in a nice dress, staring at a sunset, babe. Red lips and rosy cheeks."
  • Taurus: "We need love, but all we want is danger. We team up then switch sides like a record changer."
  • Gemini: "You'll see me in hindsight, tangled up with you all night. Burning it down."
  • Leo: "Like any great love, it keeps you guessing, like any real love, it's ever-changing. Like any true love, it drives you crazy. But you know you wouldn't change anything, anything, anything"
  • Cancer: "'Cause we're young and we're reckless, we'll take this way too far. It'll leave you breathless or with a nasty scar."
  • Virgo: "This love left a permanent mark. This love is glowing in the dark."
  • Libra: "You say it's in the past, you drive straight ahead. You're thinking that I hate you now 'cause you still don't know what I never said."
  • Scorpio: "Got a long list of ex-lovers, they'll tell you I'm insane. But I've got a blank space, baby, and I'll write your name."
  • Sagittarius: "And you understand now why they lost their minds and fought the wars. And why I've spent my whole life trying to put it into words."
  • Capricorn: "Looking at it now, last December. We were built to fall apart, then fall back together."
  • Aquarius: "Flashing lights and we took a wrong turn and we, fell down a rabbit hole. You held on tight to me, 'cause nothing's as it seems. I'm spinning out of control."
  • Pisces: "Band-aids don't fix bullet holes. You say sorry just for show. If you live like that you live with ghosts. If you love like that blood runs cold."
