Chapter 9

-Conflict resolution with Strider.

"Beat It" by Michael Jackson

I am so glad I can feel okay about using 80's tunes again. They're officially old enough in this story's timeline that you're being retro.

Man, I miss 80's themed school dances and bar nights.

I wondered where you'd slot in "Down Under".  That was a good choice.

Yeah, we're at a point in the story now where 80's music has officially become nostalgic and "cool" again, while 70's and before are "classic." Meanwhile I'm avoiding 90's music. It's not yet cool again. LOL. 

But yeah, if you think about it, Will's kind of a male Bette Davis- magnetic, strong-willed, and direct. Kind of like a hurricane but in a good way.

Chapter 15

"Blue Monday" by New Order

or

"What Is Love?" by Haddaway

Pick either one. I couldn't decide. 

-When Connie gets mushy with Will.

"If You're Not the One" by Daniel Beddingfield

I knew I was going to use this one. Just needed the right moment for it, but there hasn't been a moment this sentimental in CAP for awhile. Will generally avoids the flowerly emotions now compared to the 14-year old Will, and JJ seems to loathe sentimentality like the good little WASP boy he is.

-When Will and Connie end the chapter making up in a really fun way.

"Can't Get You Out Of My Head" by Kylie Minoque

God, I've been waiting for this one. I don't think I've ever found a place for this one until now. Of course, this song wasn't out until the fall of 2003 so I had to wait a while to use it anyway. LOL
