5.51.288 - Love's Reassurance

 

the best way to fix a broken heart is to nurture it with love


ups and downs, we finally come to the end of the chapter despite the setbacks. let's take a look at our theme!

 

"Do I Wanna Know?" by Arctic Monkeys

 

 

Are there some aces up your sleeve?
Have you no idea that you're in deep?
I've dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How many secrets can you keep?
'Cause there's this tune I found,
That makes me think of you somehow and I play it on repeat,
Until I fall asleep, spillin' drinks on my settee...
(Do I wanna know?)


Previous themes:
Chapter 1 - "Pompeii" by Bastille
Chapter 2 - "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden
Chapter 3 - "Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head" by Gorillaz
Chapter 4 - "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing" by Set It Off

---------------

it's time for a well-needed break for me now. i plan to return good ol' April 20th to smoke some big plants B)
that joke will be funny in about a year after you see what i have planned, and by then you'll all forget how funny i was. next chapter may not be exactly what some of you expected (or wanted), but i am very excited for it.


if you find yourself missing TSSB content while i'm gone, i will still be answering questions on Ask TSSB, where YOU can talk to the characters for the low, low price of free. and you do not need an account to send one. the end of a chapter is the perfect time to send them in, while the characters are ripe for reflecting. just follow the link below:

AND now that it's been a few chapters since i last did this, HERE'S A CHARACTER POLL. who's your favorite?! now there are way more options to choose from than last time!
