Klance - soulmate au

It happens for the first time when he is five.

He’s lying in bed with a cold, eating the chicken soup his mother made him, when he suddenly hears a bunch of children sing.

Lance recognizes the song immediately. It’s one of those they make you sing in kindergarten. He drops his spoon into the bowl and calls for his mom excitedly.

His soulmate must be around his age.


Keith almost falls off his bike from giggling.

He’s on his way home from school when his soulmate listens to some song about butts. It’s form him, he knows that.

It’s not what they usually listen to and it’s become kind of a habbit. They will listen to something with really weird lyrics at the most unexpected of times just to make Keith laugh. His parents find it a bit inappropriate at times but Keith doesn’t mind. He can feel his soulmate’s amusement each time and it makes him laugh even harder.

He likes to think about what his soulmate must be like. They mostly listen to pop-rock but sometimes classical music too. Keith likes it. It’s a nice contrast to his own undefinied taste in music. He also hears a lot of wedding and birthday songs so they must have a big family.

Their lives seem to be quite different but Keith likes to thinks that they complete each other.


Lance finds his soulmate’s taste in music weird. It’s not that he doesn’t like the songs, so far he liked all of them in some way. But there are so many different genres. He’s sure that his soulmate is one of those people who listen to everything as long as it sounds good in some way.

He keeps playlists. One playlist for every year since he turned 12. There are a lot of songs in them and they’re taking up a lot of memory but he refuses to delete anything.


When he’s 14 Keith is on edge. There have been no songs for over a week and he is starting to freak out. His soulmate usually listens to music every single day, so when there are no songs at all for that long… something must be very wrong, right?

“7 years have already passed by I think I felt especially happy and less stressed because of the members that stood by me, as well as our STAR1.Looking back, I feel saddened and sorry that we didn’t get to spend as much time with our fans. No matter how I present myself on whatever stage, I will never forget my love for our members and fans.I love you …. I’m sorry … and thank you. I’ll be releasing good music Fighting, everyone, until the very end.” — Soyou

“Hello Star1. This is Bora.Every year I say that the fans make me happy and I’ve had so much fun and been so happy for the past 7 years.The time that the SISTAR members have spent with Star1 were very precious and happy times. It seems like I have reached further out than my efforts have shown. I feel more and more sad that I wasn’t able to show an even better side of myself during SISTAR’s promotions.For me, it was difficult to always show a bright image but the fans always gave me even more strength. In the future, I will never forget to this image and continue being strong. I got a lot of memories while writing this. Now, the members will all be going their separate ways, I will be cheering for them.But it’s not like you all won’t ever see me. In the future, I will put in the effort to show a good image of myself as Yoon Bora.To everyone who loved both SISTAR and Bora, to everyone who stuck with us, thank you. It was a happy time. I will be happy in the future too. I love you.”— Bora

“To all the STAR1s who have loved and supported SISTAR, this is SISTAR’s leader Hyorin.It’s already been 7 years since SISTAR debuted and the time I spent as Hyorin of SISTAR with the members and the fans was priceless and like a dream. The members of SISTAR have chosen to continue on a new path to move onto our second stage in life.STAR1, you guys have showed us how happy it can be to get up on stage, sing, and be loved by someone…and we thank you for that. With great sadness, we will continue to support each other and grow and show you a better side of us. The members and STAR1 will forever be in my heart and thank you for giving me more love than I deserve. I thank you with all my heart, and I love you..” — SISTAR’s Leader Hyorin

“For our fans, STAR1!I’m very sorry for greeting you guys after such a long time. I have so much I want to say to you guys that I am having trouble thinking of what to say first.It’s been 7 years since we debuted as SISTAR. I just want to say thank you to everyone who supported us throughout all these years.Thanks to the continued love and support, we were able to continue as SISTAR for such a long time. I really believe it’s because of you guys that everyone in our group along with myself, got here.It is with a heavy heart that I say that we will be disbanding after this album. We wish you guys will support us with our individual activities and we will return the favor as well.I will work harder and stronger from now on to connect with my fans even better.Cheer for us! Thank you.” — Dasom

So I finished listening to Reputation a few times and here are my thoughts really just first impressions.

Let’s just get this out of the way, I haven’t decided that Reputation is better than Red or Speak Now, but that’s not because I need more time to listen to it, but because this album is so different from anything shes ever done that I don’t want to compare it at all. Reputation is a being of it’s own and it’s something that has left me completely awestruck with the conclusion of New Years Day. The album explores Taylor’s life over the past two years in a very interesting way. The first half explores her known Reputation to the media and then completely shifts moods with So it Goes… to exploring her true life and more specifically her all the love and happiness in her life. The album changes into something else while still being Reputation as a whole. Taylor has truly composed a masterfully crafted piece of music with this album and it leaves with feelings of joy, contentment, wonder, and happiness.

I expected to being yelling and key smashing about this album when I finished it but I’m not, I needed to stop and lay down and just reflect and enjoy the moment I was having after New Years Day. This album is something special you guys. I’ve never felt this way after listening to music before. Reputation takes you into Taylor’s life in such a new way and it captivates at every turn and it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve heard in my life. 

Things I just gotta point about the album that Iove:

  • The gospel influence on Don’t Blame Me that makes me feel like Taylor is taking me to heaven herself.
  • “If a man talk shit then I owe him nothing”.
  • The way she raises her voice in the final chorus of Getaway Car.
  • “Say my name and everything just stops” *music literally stops*
  • Her laugh in This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.
  • The way she sounds like a girl in elementary school on a playground in Nice Things. It’s childish and totally sets the entire vibe for the song and it’s genius.
  • The sounds heard playing behind the piano in New Years Day. I can’t tell if it’s the physical piano making the sounds or not but it’s very nice touch, along with the acoustic guitar.
  • “Hold onto the memories, they will hold onto you, and I will hold onto you.”
  • “I bury hatchets but I keep maps of where I put ‘em”.
  • “I’m insane but I’m you’re baby”.
  • The way her voice is shaky and somewhat fragile when she says “cause you know that it’s delicate”.
  • “Do the girls back home touch you like I do?”.
  • That voice manipulation thing in So it Goes…
  • ‘Who’s counting…..1, 2, 3″.
  • There’s more but this is all I got for now.

Oh and another thing that deserves a mini paragraph: the production. Good lord I love the production so much. The songs are very layered with all their keyboards, synths, drums, just everything. I heard something I’ve never heard before in LWYMMD on my first listen that totally blew my mind. Max Martin, Shellback and Jack Antonoff produced an absolute masterpiece.

Oh and how could I forget you, executive producer Taylor Swift, the album is incredible, there’s no other way to put it. 

And that’s the initial thoughts tea on Reputation.
