    Summary

    When you are young they assume you know nothing, but I knew you,,,

    The story behind ‘cardigan’, ‘betty’, and ‘august’ from Taylor Swift’s Folklore.

    All rights go to Taylor Swift, this story is based off the above songs, exploring the story between the three characters.

    In this story James is a girl, that is how I have seen the character since the start. I am not saying James IS a girl but I see her as one.

    Summary

    The thin sheets were a perfect contrast to the heavy, salt air of mid August- the month Augustine was named for (her mother’s favorite). However, she couldn’t be more different- she hated how the condensation stuck to her skin, how she felt like she could never get enough water in her system, how the hot sun beat down at her skin, never giving her mercy with rain, her favorite.

    Summary

    At last, she looked back at me, and her eyes were utterly woeful, her lips set in a straight line and her eyebrows downwards. “August…” was all she’d said, and it was just above a whisper—I had to read her lips over the loud music. It seemed like she’d been about to add an “I’m so sorry,” but her tone had already done that for her.

    My stomach dropped. For some reason, I just knew. Suddenly, I was next to her by the window, the liquid in my cup splashing on my hand with my fast movements.

    I saw him in a matter of seconds.

     

    august meets james. august falls in love with james. august loses james.

    Summary

    The lovestory I imagined while listening to the (in my opinion very queer) song "Betty" by Taylor Swift.

    Taylor Swift x Betty. Teenage Romance. Fluff. A bit hurt/comfort. Soft ending.

    Totally fictional! I love Taylor & Ik what the real meaning/intentions of the song were :)

    Summary

    This is an experiment I did because I wanted to write a little short story about Betty's pov in the Cardigan/Betty/August trilogy. It's very short, but I wanted to summarise the song (cardigan) in a little story. I don't know if anyone will read this, but if you do let me know what you think! I also may write James and Augustine's pov in the future, who knows? Maybe even other songs on folklore...
    That's it :)

    Summary

    Looking at her now, silky black hair and green-gray eyes, Betty could see why James had cheated on her with the other girl over summer. But that didn’t make it okay, and it didn’t mean she wanted him back. James had come to her party last weekend, which she hadn’t invited him to, because even if they were in highschool and she was being dramatic, infidelity was not f*cking cool, and her trust was shattered, and she was angry. It had been a terrible night, and James kept talking to her even after she asked him to leave, and he tried to kiss her, again, and it was really weird, and Betty didn’t like it.
    So she was glad that she’d switched out of his homeroom, even if that now meant sharing with James’s summer ex, Augustina. Actually, no one called her by her full name. She went by Tina, and Betty was currently sitting on a park bench with her, trying to figure out how to be friends.

    -----------

     

    Taylor Swift said she thinks Betty and James end up together, but I prefer the idea of Betty and August's Narrator (I'm calling her Tina, here, short for Augustina), getting together and bonding over their shared hatred of James.

    Summary

    At Woodvale High, a generation before Inez, James, Betty, and Augustine, what is happening? Perhaps Dorothea is desperate to find a way out of Woodvale, but hates the thought of leaving her girlfriend. And what happens when Dorothea gets two important offers, placing her at a fork in the road and leaving her to choose between two very different lives? And what happens when she discovers that, just maybe, both lives aren't quite the opposites she imagined?

    Based off of 'dorothea', 'champagne problems', 'the 1', ''tis the damn season', and 'cowboy like me', and including references from 'betty', 'august', 'cardigan', 'invisible string' and 'no body, no crime' (all by Taylor Swift). This is (my rendition of) the story of Dorothea and Margaret.

     

    **Mentions lyrics from: 11:59 - Blondie, Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen, American Girl - Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers

    Summary

    She stubs the cigarette out in the grass before she finally fixes her gaze on Dorothea again, tone slightly challenging when she asks, “Do you know why I’m hiding?”

    “I’ve heard that you stole your best friend’s boyfriend,” Dorothea says, cautiously, “but that’s none of my business.”

    Dorothea knows why the warm, happy look that August gives her makes her heart speed up—she’s known it for a while and kept it neatly tucked inside her where nobody has to deal with it—but that doesn’t make it any less distracting.

    “Do you wanna get out of here?” August asks, getting to her feet and offering her a hand.

    Summary

    Inspired from Taylor Swift's folklore teen love triangle. The story revolves arounds the theme of cardigan/august/betty. So, you'll see Betty/James/Augustine. Song lyrics are scattered throughout. The pairings and character names are taken from the songs and I do not own them. However, the story is my own. Hope you'll like it.

    Summary

    And when I felt like I was an old cardigan under someone's bed, you put me on and said I was your favorite.

    So much for summer love, and saying "us," 'cause you weren't mine to lose.

    She said, "James, get in, let's drive." Those days turned into nights, slept next to her, but I dreamt of you all summer long.

    An abrupt 'end' to one's relationship was almost the start of a new one. To the new girl, she thought she had him. To him, it was just a summer thing.
