Let me start by saying thank you. If you're reading this, it probably means you will read the short story that follows. Even if you don't, thank you for your initial interest!

This is a songfic-- one of many that I've written.

A songfic is basically a song in story form. I can't remember when I started writing them, but they're a ton of fun and cause much less stress than a full-length book. I tend to get bored of things very quickly, but with songfics, you really don't have any time to grow tired of what you're writing. lol.

This songfic is "How to Save a Life" by The Fray.

Thanks so much for reading & if you would like to read your favorite song in story form, written by yours truly, feel free to send me a message and I'll do my best to pull it off(as long as it's not a [email protected]$ta rap song, that is. I don't know if that'd be even possible... lol)! - A big thank you to Annabel for the idea!

enjoy xx

While I read these, I put the song on my iPod and it makes it even more emotional.
I could sot of relate to this piece so I got quite teary eyed.
I swear we have the same taste in music and you bring the songs to life so well...
Pleas write more of these!

Love it. Seriously, it was easy to see the connections to the song but it wasn't every single line which was nice. I really liked the story idea too, and the relationship between Allie and Jason. The writing was well writing too, overall great job!

Absolutely amazing. Even though How to Save a Life isn't their best song (because Enough for Now, or Rainy Zurich probably is) this is an amazing story. The profanity can be understood, and didn't go overboard.

God, I love the Fray.
