Well, Jen and I have really been neglecting this website of ours — oops! — but we’ve been doing lotsa stuff elsewhere…
Over on Wattpad, we have been posting up a storm: after our Taylor Swift fan fictionKnow You Better wrapped up (and we’re at 222,000 reads!!), we kept up the Swift party with an excerpt from our bio on the Fearless One with our version of Cliff Notes, our Swift Notes to Red! But that wasn’t enough! We love the Wattpad community and all the feedback on our stories, so we decided to try something new and awesome: a choose your own adventure style Taylor Swift fan fic — Sweeter than Fiction. We’re only up to chapter three, so there’s still plenty of time to get in on the action and help decide what Taylor will get up to next. We’re having a laugh and a half coming up with wondrous ideas of what fun lurks around the next corner.
We’re still madly writing our Red fan fiction, Taylor Swift: Know You Better, over on Wattpad. We’ve reached track 8, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and we’re celebrating the halfway point by offering a contest for our amazing Wattpad readers! So if you’re a Wattpadder, head over and enter — you could win a copy of Taylor Swift: The Platinum Edition and a cameo in a future story! (Plus you get to see everyone’s favourite lyrics in the comments, which is super fun.)
And while we’re talking fanfic and the awesomeness of our readers, take a few minutes to watch this awesome trailer that Hilda Therese made for Know You Better. ❤ ❤ ❤
So after spending months researching and writing Taylor Swift: The Platinum Edition, Team Liv was feeling pretty expert on all-things-Taylor. But there were certain things we could never know, and sometimes imagined. Since we weren’t quite ready to stop writing about our girl, we decided to try something new: writing Swifty fanfiction, and sharing our flights of fancy with everyone. Because what could be more fun than imagining what it would be like to live the life of the Swift One?
Since our Swift Notes chapter meant we spent a lot of time thinking about the individual songs on Red, we decided to riff on that in our fiction and imagine the scenarios that inspired the songs or what it was like for Taylor to write them. Taylor Swift: Know You Better, the title for our collective Swifty speculation, will be made up of one story for every track on Red.
We publish a new story every Friday, and you can read our stories behind the first three tracks of Red over on Wattpad! Let us know how you like them! Want more romance, more behind-the-scenes on the tour, or more Meredith? We aim to please.
