Here’s to pointing out that in a world full of discussions about sex and loving each gender equally, there are also those who don’t feel attraction at all and may be wondering what is ‘wrong’ with them. This can also lead to invalidation and being told “you just haven’t met the right person yet”. Here’s to all the asexual or aromatic or not quite sure where they are swifties on this lgbt(+) selfie night (even though it’s morning here and probably already finished).
Okay guys, ever since Taylor liked that post about dropping hints about TS7 I can’t get the wax seals everywhere out of my head!!!
I know we’ve commented on the seals being placed on specific dates etc etc but then there’s also the necklace she released recently???
So I decided to look into the history of wax seals and symbolism / what different coloured seals mean and I have some interesting findings…
TO KEEP A LETTER CLOSED AND ENSURE IT HASNT BEEN TAMPERED WITH?? ENSURE IT WAS WRITTEN BY THE SENDER?? AN UNBROKEN WAX SEAP MEANING A LETTER HAD BEEN SUCCESSFULLY DELIVERED??
We’re about to get the most personal album yet!!! Taylor’s unfiltered, untampered version of events. Straight from her to us - delivered sealed in an envelope - (she has always referred to her songs as being like her diary!!)
Destroyed after the owner died to prevent posthumous forgeries??? Oh I don’t know… like the OLD TAYLOR? And “In the death of her reputation, she felt truly alive” - this is Taylor ensuring that nobody can claim her words, her story, her views - she is back, alive and this time she has a new symbol to authenticate her wishes - so that we know it is really her. She started this in the reputation era with her lack of interviews, she isn’t going to let anyone else take credit for her work, to pick apart her songs and allocate them to being about certain people, she isn’t going to let the media change and misconstrue her words / her actions / her music - everything is on her terms and is her real story.
An INTIMATE WAY OF COMMUNICATING WITH LOVED ONES????? WE ARE GETTING A LOVE ALBUM ERM!!!!
And if you look into the meaning behind the different coloured wax seals!!!! You will notice that 3/5 are light blue - meaning either graduations of passion or constancy!! AKA A LOVE THAT WAS REALLY SOMETHING NOT JUST THE IDEA OF SOMETHING
TO CONCLUDE - I think that the wax seals are a massive hint about TS7, not only about the content and the feelings of passion and constancy but I think Taylor will be going a step further than reputation in terms of the honesty in the album - it’s no longer “there will be no further explanation, just reputation” this time we’re actually going to be getting Taylor’s story, free from interference, tampering and outside influence - straight from her to us, sealed.
Stop sleeping on the wax seals, thank you for attending my tedtalk x
(Ps I’m still calling it that the album is called 13)
