    Summary

    From the moment I heard that Tears For Fears used to play Led Zeppelin songs as teenagers in articles and interviews, I always wanted to make a story of them and Led Zeppelin.
    When Robert Plant goes to Bath before the premiere of their movie, he hears teenagers Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith playing two Led Zeppelin songs. Once he sees them, he decides that these future musicians can use some advice from the greatest band of all time. Can Led Zeppelin help these two teenagers make their own name in the music world or will Roland and Curt not be able to have a future in music even with help from Led Zeppelin?
    This is a "what if" story and was made with respect and love for two bands that have always been my biggest inspiration and comfort.

    Summary

    Roland is at sixes and sevens with the world in general (and his love life in particular).
    This short fic comes from my opinion that Roland is a hopeless romantic, is known for having had at least one affair and then being terribly sorry over it (as can be seen in the Raoul and The Kings of Spain album). Themes like poliamory, choosing over your partner and someone else, struggling with getting older and trying to supress your feelings and emotions for a higher good (family) surround both Roland and this fic. I understand if some fans are triggered by this, moreso if they ignored all I'm talking about here. I highly recommend you analyze RATKOS and do your research. Note: this doesn't make Roland any less of a good man and person. If anything, it makes him human and relatable.
    Disclaimer: I highly respect his real life, his late wife and everything. This is a piece of fiction and should be treated as such. Thank you!

    Summary

    A small recreation of what I think could have happened to Roland, meeting a fan and going a bit crazy over it. I know, I overidealize Roland. This is just a vision of him! I love him as a character of my writings, so I beg of you to understand how this is just fiction. I love and respect the man.
    The title comes from a line in the lyrics of Humdrum and Humble. I think it pictures perfectly Roland's passionate side.
    I don't think I'll continue this work, I like to keep things short and straight to the point. Enjoy!

    Summary

    After listening to Tomcat's Screaming Outside today, I decided to write a quick draft of how I like to imagine him composing his music at home! The title comes from the song found in RATKOS and is totally inspired by how I think the relationship with Roland must have felt sometimes, based on his own songs and interviews ...
