Story Prompt #52

Song Prompt:

“King” by Lauren Aquilina

You’re alone, you’re on your own, so what?
Have you gone blind?
Have you forgotten what you have and what is yours?
Glass half empty, glass half full
Well either way you won’t be going thirsty
Count your blessings not your flaws

You’ve got it all
You lost your mind in the sound
There’s so much more
You can reclaim your crown
You’re in control
Rid of the monsters inside your head
Put all your faults to bed
You can be king again

You don’t get what all this is about
You’re too wrapped up in your self doubt
You’ve got that young blood, set it free

You’ve got it all
You lost your mind in the sound
There’s so much more
You can reclaim your crown
You’re in control
Rid of the monsters inside your head
Put all your faults to bed
You can be king

There’s method in my madness
There’s no logic in your sadness
You don’t gain a single thing from misery
Take it from me

You’ve got it all
You lost your mind in the sound
There’s so much more
You can reclaim your crown
You’re in control
Rid of the monsters inside your head
Put all your faults to bed
You can be king

You’ve got it all
You lost your mind in the sound
There’s so much more
You can reclaim your crown
You’re in control
Rid of the monsters inside your head
Put all your faults to bed
You can be king again

I was watching AMVs and thought this song spoke about an interesting character. What character comes to mind for you from this song? Is the narrator “you” from the future or another character? Just some questions I had; it can be fun to come up with your own as well based on the song.

Dialogue Prompt:

“Why do you get mad every time I call you a ‘friend’?”

“We might of stopped the Evil Overlord together but that doesn’t mean I like you.”

Story Prompt #5

Scenario Prompt:

This time I thought it would be fun to give a prompt based of the lyrics of a song. The song I picked is by one of my favorite bands, Civil Wars, and is called “Girl With the Red Balloon”. I’ll post the lyrics here but you can also find the song on YouTube. I always wonder about the backstory of the girl whenever I hear this song and how she got to where she is in the pub. Now we can fill that story in if anyone feels inspired.

Feel free to post anything this prompt inspires in the comments or contact me if you have any questions!

Lyrics:

There’s a pub on the south side of town
Time stands still while there’s still wine around
She’s the one you let in out of the cold
The one who’s neer and always alone
Did she let him go,
Or did the four winds blow him away?
Oh does she even know,
She’s the girl with the red balloon?
Keep her glass full of cheap champagne
She will tell of a man with no name
Smoke and mirrors have done her in
She’s in love and she won’t be again
Oh did she let him go,
Or did the four winds blow him away?
Oh does she even know,
She’s the girl with the red balloon?
So lovely
So lonely
