When writing slash fanfiction based on musicians their lyrics often serve as an inspiration for creating the fandom itself This pieces intention is not to insinuate that New Order lyricist singer and in my case slash fanfiction subject Bernard Sumner is homosexual or bisexual In this section I shall examine certain lyrics by him that can be interpreted as exhibiting homosexuality some more inclined in that direction than others One of the most well-known songs by New Order that can be interpreted from a homosexual standpoint is 1963The lyrics tell of a male protagonist who has a relationship with a man named Johnny Johnny is clearly bisexual or perhaps a closeted homosexual as the lyrics Johnny came home with another wife indicate In the song Johnny attempts to kill the initial male protagonist The protagonist pleads Johnny dont point that gun at me How did this romantic relationship become strained then It is certain that both men love each other however Bernards character begins the song with the lyrics It was January 1963 when Johnny came home with a gift for me He said I bought it for you because I love you and I bought it for you cause its your birthday too In other words Bernards characters birthday is in January and Johnny gave him a birthday present According to the protagonist Johnny did not intend to hurt emotionally andor physically him Then why did Johnny intend to kill him There are too many ways that you could kill someone like in a love affair reminds Bernard Perhaps Johnny frustrated with his feelings and with what his wife demands attempted to kill the protagonist out of desperation Bernards character on the other hand is not as tormented as Johnny Despite Johnny and his desire to kill not just literally but metaphorically to kill his troubles his homosexual longings etc Bernards character reamins devoted to Johnny In the end the protagonists deep romantic love
