    #492 Bonnie Raitt - Nick of Time (1989)

    I haven’t listened to much of Raitt’s music in the past, and to be completely honest it does sound like something my parents would be jamming out to, but none the less this album gives me “I’m a bad bitch, don’t mess with me” energy. Nick of Time was released as Raitt’s tenth studio album, the fact that she was able to release that many albums in an entire career is already amazing, but this one was her biggest success. After going through personal addiction struggles and a skiing accident that put her in the hospital for two months, Raitt goes hard on this album, with a unique pop-country-blues fusion Nick of Time is a unique composition. 

    The songs seem to bounce back and forth between being contemplative, and being forceful. The first song and title track, Nick of Time has Raitt singing about a friend who wants a baby, but knows her “time is running out”. She also reflects on her own life decisions here, realizing she’s made mistakes in the past but can reflect and learn from these choices. Cry On My Shoulder is also along the more sympathetic side, focusing on getting through tough times, with a friend ready to help “get you through the tough times”. Other, more up beat and rock focused songs on the album include Love Letter, Real Man, and I Will Not Be Denied, where Raitt displays her true worth, and lets anyone know that she’s not here for anyone who isn’t going to treat her right. 

    When I first heard this album I was expecting it to be more country focused, I can’t even name any other Bonnie Raitt songs so I had no impression going into this. Raitt shows off how she can mash three or four different genres into this album and none feel out of place. With some track being completely love ballads, complete with synthy 80′s piano, and others being songs you might hear in a country bar, harmonica and all, the album bounces around in a way that keeps you guessing. 

    Give it a listen, see what you think.

    Epilogue Compliant fic rec (Exploding Snap 2021)

    Hello! So I joined @gameofdrarry Exploding Snap 2021. One of my cards requires me to rec a fic of a certain trope. In this case, it was an epilogue compliant fic. So here goes!

    Title: I Can’t Make You Love Me

    Author: @drarrelie​​ Rating: General Audiences Exploding Snap Trope: Epilogue Compliant Word Count: 1,013 Tags:  Harry Potter Epilogue Compliant, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Compliant, Post-Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, POV Ginny Weasley, Angst, Heartache, letting go, Pre-Slash, Songfic

    Summary:  I can't make you love me if you don't. You can't make your heart feel something it won't.

    Excerpt:   I don’t even know if you’ve realised it yourself yet. Realised that you love him. I have. I could see it in your eyes as we waited on the platform together. Waited for our kids to come home for Christmas. You looked at him as you once used to look at me. With fondness, yearning, desire. With so much love and want you might as well have announced your feelings by Sonorus. You’ve never been good at hiding your emotions; that’s one of the things I’ve always loved most about you.

    Rec Notes: I’m going to start with this disclaimer. I love this author. @drarrelie​ is the person who inspired me to write, and she encourages me regularly. I’ve co-written a couple of stories with her now, and her writing is like poetry, pulling out every last little bit of emotion and imagery of a scene and weaving it through the text like an ornate tapestry. She’s an amazing author, woman, friend, and generally just one of my favorite people on the planet. 

    Now, this story is one of her early fics, but I’m so glad I took to the time to go back and look for it. I adore song-fics, but especially ones like this: a simple scene reflecting the heart of the music. This is a classic song, and it’s always heartbreaking, but what the author has done here is to take the heartbreak of Bonnie Raitt’s original song and place it into Ginny’s mind as she narrates her last evening with Harry before letting him go. 

    What results from Drarrelie’s fic is a Drarry story where we get very little Harry and no actual Draco, but where we understand love in new ways -- to someone so much that you’re willing to let them go for their own happiness. So many canon-compliant fics I read vilify Ginny, but I love how the author shows that Ginny loves Harry enough to let him be with Draco to be happy. The little details she includes — the pyjamas in the second drawer, the clothes in the hamper — just let you feel the mundanity of the night, even though it’s likely their last night together. 

    Just, go read it, ok? It’s wonderful. And binge the song while you read it. You won’t regret it. Just grab a tissue.

    You can read it on AO3 here!

    Nota: 9/10

    AOTY: 1990

    Bonnie Raitt, Nick of Time (1990)

    Lançado no final dos anos 80 tem aquele ar das músicas do período mas bem mais refinado. Todo ele é coeso mesmo as músicas sendo de estilos levemente diferentes. Particularmente gostei mais de Love Letter e Cry On My Shoulder
