Take the reins, Laura!
Wild Horses by The Sundays
The horses of Master Faramore’s Estate were where Imogen sought respite against the overwhelming noise of her sudden powers. They were her everything for several years, the only place she still felt human. And if she was very lucky, on some days, she’d get to take Flora out and ride. No thoughts – just the wind in her hair as she moved through peaceful planes of flowing grass and colorful blooms.
Overwhelmed by Royal & the Serpent
When the voices started – Imogen didn’t know what was happening. She spent most of her days hiding away from any kind of contact, quickly becoming an outcast in her small town.
Red Skies by The Fixx
Ruidus sees all.
Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by Eurythmics, Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart
The dreams that terrorize her came at the same time as her ability to see inside. Before she developed the tools to shut out the noise, she was flooded with the thoughts and desires of those around her. She understands the innate selfishness of humanity and had almost lost hope for everything before running into the beautiful soul that is Laudna.
Ghosts That We Knew by Mumford & Sons
When Laudna swept into town – Imogen’s world shifted. They’ve seen the worst of people, but together they’ve realized that things CAN be better. Hearing the thoughts of Laudna’s acceptance of her – knowing her spoken words were true – Imogen began to see the good again.
Trampoline by SHAED
The nightmares. They haunt her even when she’s awake – always making the moment of giving in to sleep one of anxiety. Never fully knowing when they’ll find her again. She’s always believed that if the storm reached her, she would cease to exist. But the recent realization that maybe this storm could lead to something else has her second guessing everything. Could there be strength in the storm?
Breaking Down by Florence and the Machine
Between the fear of sleep and the constant buzz of everyone around her, she’s always a few steps away from losing herself. A thin mask of control is what keeps her together sometimes, and when she can feel the ties of that mask begin to slip, Imogen doesn’t know what to do.
Thunderstruck by Luca Stricagnoli
How about a little acoustic accompaniment for our electrical storm?
Let the Rain by Sara Bareilles
(Oh hey bestie) Sometimes Imogen just wants to give in to it all. Let the rain fall, let the mental walls come down – what’s the worst that could happen? Maybe this storm will lead to a power she never knew was possible.
Nightmare by Halsey
Or maybe if she lets go her tight reins of control, she’ll become a nightmare herself.
Raise Hell by Brandi Carlile
C’mon now, ring that Bell.
Season of the Witch by Lana Del Ray
My lovely bitches. My fellow witches. Fearne and Laudna are forces to be reckoned with, and Imogen has found freedom in their friendship. I can’t wait to see what kind of trouble these three can make together.
