The Topic


Haunted forest

Complex relationships



Choose a Name (This step is completely optional but if you don’t mind indicate  which of the names you like best in the comments or at the bottom of your post. If you have a suggestion for a W name let me know. I collect names.)













Choose a Song (You don’t need to listen to all 5 songs I’ve indicated which topic the song relates to as a guide. Just type the song and title into Youtube if you can’t find it let me know and I will send a link. If you need the lyrics let me know. These songs are meant to be emotionally provoking, they are outright devastating so if you don’t think you can listen just use the other elements of the prompt.)

    Another interesting set of 5s. Complex relationships are compelling when Leonard Cohen’s Famous Blue Raincoat is an option.
