A GAY LITTLE STROKES STORY, FOR ALL THE TRUE STROKES FANS!!!Posted by ElishaLovesStrokes on August 2, 2008 at 6:37 pm
So it was late, I was bored and high, and I decided to write a little story about our favorite band. I know its kind of long but please read all the way through, I think its quite funny, clever and creative. And if your a true Strokes fan like I am, you will be able to fully understand and appreciate it.....
[size=85][b]Up on a hill is where we begin. This little story, a long time ago. Stop to pretend, stop pretending. It seems this game is simply never-ending. Oh, in the sun, sun having fun. It's in my blood. I just can't help it, leaving just in time. Staying for a while, rolling in the ocean... [/b][/size]
“So tonight’s gonna be good, camping you know. I can’t wait to get away for the night. [b]See I’ve been stuck in the city but we belong in a field,”[/b] Lish says to one of her friends, Jules while sitting on his couch. “[b]So you think things move pretty fast down here. Well, just wait my dear 'til you look up there. Oh maybe someday you'll know,”[/b] He says with a laugh. “[b]I'm tired of everyone I know, of everyone I see on the street,”[/b] she says back. He walks over to the couch and replies, [b]“Why won’t you come over here, we’ve got a city to love until the fields. But just kill me now cause I let you down but I swear one day we’ll leave this town.”[/b]
Elisha says “I know we will, SOMEDAY. But I also know tonite will be good.” Recalling her memory, “LAST NITE was absolutely insane. Wasn’t it? But hey, YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE, this is THE MODERN AGE.” “That is true indeed but LAST NITE,[b] even though it was only one night, it was fuckin' strange,” [/b]says Jules.
“So when are the rest of them gonna meet up with us?” she said. “Fab should be here shortly but Niko and Nick, we’re just gonna see them there.” She questions, “What about Alb?” “I don’t think so,” he replies, “but who knows with him these days? Hey, let me use your phone to call him.” Jules calls Albert and says, [b]“Change your mind tonight. But you belong to the city now and you're closer now. I know, I know. You belong on the radio, [/b]EVERYONE GETS A STAR.” Jules hangs up the phone, “He’s in HAWAII, ALOHA baby. But I think he’s just gonna do his own thing for now and BORROWED TIME. Well, as Albert says, “ITS HARD TO LIVE IN THE CITY when you need BLUE SKIES. But I think we just need CLEAR SKIES.”
Right after, Fabrizio glides into the room strumming his fingers against his jeans and shouts, “Are we all fucking ready to do this or what?” Jules replies back, “Yeah man, just let me go uhh finish, uhh getting ready,” as he disappears down the hall.
15 MINUTES later, Elisha yells out, “SOMEDAY today, Julian! Fab is absolutely killing me over here, he’s crazy.” Fab looks surprised and proclaims “Who, me? What the fuck did I do?” “Nothing. It’s just that YOU TALK WAY TOO MUCH,” Lish says. Fab replies back, “Fuck yeah that’s JUST THE WAY IT IS.” Julian yells over from the other room “Could one of you MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM, to fix this for me. [b]I’m in utter dismay. I’ve got nothing to say[/b] about this thingy.” Elisha immediately jumps up, “Yeah, I’ll come fix anything you want.”
Moments later they come out and Fab remarks, [b]“So were gonna drive because he hates to fly,”[/b] pointing to Jules. The three friends walk out of the apartment and into a red Pontiac car. Fab then states, [b]“I said please don't slow me down if I'm going too fast. You're in a strange part of our town. Our lives are changing lanes. So don’t run me off the road. Got it, if it don't make sense or it don't feel right, I could drop you off at the next RED LIGHT.[/b] Oh and don’t forget, we are only making one AUTOMATIC STOP, just to piss and get booze.” Jules remarks, “[b]I wish two drinks where always in me.[/b]” Fab starts the car, “Alright, were IN TRANSIT,” and the radio blares out, [b]“I want to be forgotten, and I don't want to be reminded. You say, please don't make this harder. No, I won't yet.”
An hour later, they arrive at their campsite. Nicholas is already pitching his tent, “Dude!!! Hey, WHATEVER HAPPENED to Nikolai,” Jules yells to him. “He said he was gonna finally step up and go solo for once but we’ll be seeing a lot more of him later on.” “Nice, [b]keeping down the underground.”[/b]
Hours later with the EVENING SUN up, the friends are all sitting around the fire, having a good time, drinking and smoking some Camels. Fab says, “So IS THIS IT, all of us, well except of course, for Albie.” Someone smirks, “Yeah! It’s not like there’s a sixth one of us or anything.” “Where ya going, man,” Nick yells over to Niko. “Just to my car to get a JUICEBOX,” he so casually says. “What!” the friends all exclaimed in shock. Jules bewildered, “You’re not drinking? Instead you’re seriously gonna have some juicy juice. Grab yourself a fuckin Heineken.” Niko says, “I’ll just grab a Bud afterwards. It’s HARD TO EXPLAIN but I CAN’T WIN with you guys, I guess I’m A DYING STAR.” “That’s the way to go man,” Jules says as he slaps Niko’s ass who then blushes. The radio rocks out with a RHYTHM SONG, [b]“Oh, the RAZORBLADE, that's what I call love, I bet you'd pick it up and mess around with I, if I put it down. It gets extremely complicated, anything to forget everything.”[/b]
Then at that moment, a RED LIGHT is seen and Fab says [b]"1 9 6 9, what's that sound? Oh no!" [/b]A park ranger comes up to their site. The boys start giggling and acting all stupid. The ranger says, “It looks like you all are even BARELY LEGAL to be drinking.” “No. We are all of age,” says Nick. [b]“But yeah, I completelee SOMA, Oh (laughs) I meant sober Ah,(laughs) No, I didn't mean that at all,” [/b]says Julian. [b]"I've got to come clean,” Nick chimes in, “The authorities, they've seen, I'm somewhere in between."[/b] The ranger just shakes his head and speaks on his radio, “Its alright, We just got A MINOR 4-4. Well, I have THE IZE OF THE WORLD boys, so don’t get too rowdy tonite and just take it easy. [b]I don't want to change your mind. I don't want to waste your time. I just want to know you're alright. You don’t want any trouble, We might get some, it’s troublesome.”[/b] “But don’t you worry dude, fuckin everything is UNDER CONTROL,” Fab confirms as he gives him A SALTY SALUTE.
They all sneer as the ranger leaves. The boys all look at one of another and give weird looks. “See, this is why I didn’t really want to drink tonite because I’m nervous,” says Niko. “Wow, [b]NEW YORK CITY COPS, they ain’t too smart [/b]but that guy was an idiot. Hey JuJu, light up a J, I’LL TRY ANYTHING ONCE” Lish says.
An hour later, “I love you man, no I love you man. [b]Whether we're drunk or stoned or we're sober and old. If I'm with you, I'm a happy man if you feel safe and cold but cold, you’re so cold, why won’t you come over here. Why you sitting over there?” [/b]Niko says to Jules, [b]“No, No, No, I wanna be beside her, [/b]She’s IN HER PRIME,” he says back. “Its okay, I’m A MODERN GIRL who likes OLD FASHIONED MEN. [b]I just want to be admired because my feelings are more important than yours,”[/b] Lish says. Julian looks at her, “Do you want to meet me ON THE OTHER SIDE to take a stroll.” “Sure, in a few,” she says. [b]“All that I do is wait for you, how long must a wait. And I'm waiting for my lady. I'm not coming back. That's all there is so RUN, RUN, RUN,”[/b] he says back. [b]“I can't get away from all your friends [/b]but fine I’ll go.” Nick says, “So what is this, A VISION OF DIVISION.” ”Call it whatever you’d like,” Lish says as her and Jules walk down towards the trail.
“We are finally ALONE TOGETHER.” “Yeah,” he says “So ASK ME ANYTHING you want from all that shit, everything. But I do have to say the first time, [b]it happened too fast. The second time, I thought it would last. Oh dear, can't you see? It's them it's not me. Take me away, see I've got to explain. Things, they have changed in such a permanent way,”[/b] Jules grabs her, [b]“First you're worried then you're hurried. Don't think that everything is gonna stay the same, that's impossible. But before I let you go, let me look at you. Don’t you worry, kiss me now that I'm older. I won't try to control you, Friday nights have been lonely. Take it slow but don't warn me. Whether I'm in your arms or I'm at your feet, I know exactly what you're thinking. You won't say it now. But in your heart it's loud. But can't you see I'm trying? And I don't even like it. It's not that I don't really love you, it's just that I don't really know.” [/b]
[b]He would never talk but he was not shy. She was a street-smart girl but she could not lie. They were perfect for each other. Two can be complete without the rest of the world. Anything they wanted, they could have it. Didn't even notice...[/b]
Julian continues,[b] “I don't feel better when I'm fucking around because my HEART IS IN A CAGE but I’ve got nothing to say, I've got nothing to give. I've got nothing to hide just wish I wasn’t so shy. The world is over but I don't care, you don’t miss me. [/b]THIS IS IT so TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, its just BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE now.[b] Right, wrong, what to do? Someday it will come to you.”
Lish turns and says, [b]“Raised in Carolina, I'm not like that. Oh, baby I feel so down. Just give me some time, I just need a little time. Whether you’re neat and polite or you scream and fight whether you keep something from me that I would not like.”[/b] He replies back, [b]“Always thinking about yourself. Why do I accept the things you say? You know what to change but not in what way. I think I know what you mean but watch what you say. I thought I told you, this world is not for you. I try but you see it's HARD TO EXPLAIN. I say the right things but act the wrong way. Oh, you ain't never had nothin' I wanted but I wanted it all, I just can't figure it out. Oh little girl I don’t care no more I know this for sure, I'm walking out that door. So just leave me alone. I'm in control, I'm in control and girls lie too much and boys act too tough, enough is enough.” [/b]
[size=85][b]Come on tell me does she warm the room when he comes or does he just know how to leave when it gets cold. No choice now, it's too late. Let him go, he gave up... [/b][/size]
“Hey, what is that?” Lish questions. “What is what?” he asks. “That! It looks like some type of REPTILIA,” she says. “Yeah, I don’t know what that is. You know if[b] I was hiding from the world, I wish I was a squirrel,[/b] that is my FIRST IMPRESSION OF EARTH,” he says. Playfully she says, [b]“Don’t be a coconut, God is trying to talk to you. We could drag it out but that’s what others do,[/b] Jules.”
As they start to walk back to the site, they see lighting. Nick yells out, “It looks like ELECTRICITYSCAPE.” “Is that even a word,” says fab. “It is now, because I said so,” Nick confidently says back. “Hey what time is it,” Lish asks Nick. “It’s 12:51. [b]That is the time my voice found the words I sought." So I’m gonna steal you fire, this room is on fire and she’s fixing her hair.[/b]” “What room, Nick? Right, so what have you guys been doing,” Lish asks. “Nothing really, Nick was just KILLING LIES,” Fab replies. [b]“You see, some people think they're always right. Others are quiet [b]and uptight [/b]like Niko. [b]Others they seem so very nice, inside they might feel sad and wrong [/b]like the rest of us. [/b]But that was you up on the mountain. What have you two been doing?” Nick asks. “Yeah, Jules said [b]he wants it easy; he want it relaxed. But then he said I can do a lot of things but I can't do that[/b] cause I was just TRYING YOUR LUCK, so who knows with him,” Lish says. “That’s alright [b]so tell us a story I know you're not boring cause now I'm staying here just for a while[/b],” Nick says. “[b]I can't think 'cause I'm just way too tired[/b],” she said back. [b]“You sound so sleepy. But yeah, the night's not over, you're not trying hard enough. I guess everybody's week must have been pretty rough cause everybody's drunk, loud, and pissed off,”[/b] Nick says.
[b]“Now it's three in the morning and you're eating alone, Lish. I'm tired of being so judgmental of everyone. I got up, then I waved, then I fell. I recall, you were there with me overjoyed and at peace. [/b]But I can’t go to sleep because I have a FEAR OF SLEEP,” Jules says. [b]“But that's not my problem you don't fall asleep right away. I was waiting for my baby, to arrive right by my side. But are we, are we done?[/b]" Lish says as she walks over to their tent. Jules says to himself, [b]“I'll be waiting for you baby 'cause I'm through. So sit me down, shut me up. I'll calm down and I'll get along with you.”[/b]
In the morning, Jules says [b]“It’s an autumn sunrise. She was still sleeping. A problem will stay one more day. Get up, I can't see the sunshine. But yes, it was all just a dream, oh no wait, was it real? I don't know, I hope so.[/b] She rolls over to him and says, [b]“Your dreams are sweet and obsessed. And you’re overworked.”[/b] He walks out of the tent and says, “I just got to get my converses that Pharrell gave me. Be right back.” She says to herself, [b]“He won't decide but he won't debate. He was too late. Oh why, oh why. I don't know. Says he can't decide. I shake my head to say everything's just great. Can't make good decisions, it won't stop. I can't stop.”
Outside he says, [b]“When we was young, oh man, did we have fun. Always, always. Promises, they’re break before they're made. Sometimes, sometimes. In many ways, we'll miss the good old days. Someday, someday. Yeah, it hurts to say but I want you to stay. Sometimes, sometimes. Oh, My-ex says I'm lacking in depth. I will do my best. You say you wanna stay by my side, darling, your head's not right. See, alone we stand, together we fall apart. Yeah, I think I'll be alright. I'm working so I won't have to try so hard. Tables, they turn sometimes. Hard times opened our eyes and saw pain in a new way. Go your separate way now. Someday you'll come back. All the girls could never make me love them the way I love you but no, I ain't wasting no more time. I wish it were not true but that's the way it is. It's not your fault, that's the way it is. I'm sick of you and that's the way it is. Now we're out of time, I said it's my fault, it's my fault .Send my goodbyes to the life we won't spend together.”
The friends all get their stuff together to head out and leave. Jules says, [b]“I'll show them all. Oh, back home. I said drag me home or just, take me home.”[/b]
[size=85]For awhile, it was nice but its time to say bye, WHEN IT STARTED, you are a friend of mine, I wish THE END HAS NO END but IS THIS IT. Is this just how it ends?[/size]
