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!
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!

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 ...
