I can imagine him switching over to drums. Daniel still seems like a mystery to me.

I had my phone ring during a middle of class once. It was my mom calling.
I actually find their 'meeting' interesting. Sam seems he doesn't care but he continues to talk to Dan.

Well, even though you haven't updated since 2008, which is 3 years ago, and this is probably dropped or something, I hope you'll update soon! Really great writing!

Dang, I remember starting to read this around the time chapter 13 was updated, and I just reread the whole thing again today. It's been two years since you've last updated, so I guess it might be too optimistic of me to hope that you will. ;-; you're killing me.

WOW. Well, I know this hasn't been updated in a while, but I have fallen head over heels for this story. Rest assured I'll be checking for updates even though chances seem slim, but hey, a girl can hope ;]
You're characters are witty, charming, occasionally uncouth and real all at once. It's more than a little refreshing, and I never thought I'd be captivated by the setting of a band camp, of all things, so gold kudos for you. Hope to see more in the not so distant future.

Continue! Continue! Continue! Hurry! This is just too good. Oh Miles. That last sentence is just hilarious! xD Please hurry! I just love this POV, he's so funny!

Just read all the chapters in one night and I'm totally obsessed. I particularly like Daniel's dialogue. :) Update soon!
| Annie 7/15/10 . chapter 4
GOD DAMN IT. You know, I try, try so hard to avoid stories like this. You know, the ones that don't say 'Complete', the ones that haven't been updated in TWO YEARS. I'm going to cry, seriously. I'm only on chapter 4, I love this story already, and I can just TELL that I'm going to be dying for much much more. I AM SO UPSET. THIS IS A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL STORY. PLEASE UPDATE IT. Please continue writing!

Hahaha, what a way to end the chapter xD I've grown increasingly fond of this story and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next update. Man, I'm so relieved for Daniel's patience, I'm not sure I could handle a "temporary break-up drama" right after they got together. And now Miles... hahah, oh boy. Sure was quick to jump on that train, wasn't he?
Ah, I'd also like to say that the kissing scenes were brilliant and that you have nothing to worry about. You're right, sex(y) scenes can do a lot of damage, but the way you did it was just perfect. Lots of (TRUCKLOADS of) sexual tension and nervous fiddling, yet done with a strange sort of... grace? They're meant for each other, obviously. If they hopped right off to bed (in the not-literal sense they did in chapter something) it would've been, hmm. Not as good? My eloquence, it astounds even me.
So. Next chapter, plz? Chop, chop! :D

I love this story!
It amuses me so much that it happens at band camp. Especially because of the ever-so-well-known story-starting statement "So this one time at band camp..."
Also, I am not a band geek myself, but several of my bestest friends are, and it made me feel so proud of myself when you mentioned instruments that I recognized - like timpani (not counting the well-known instruments like sax or trumpet).
I really appreciate the way you wrote Sam's struggle with his attraction to Daniel. I feel like most slash stories I've read where the main character starts off thinking he's straight just have him be in denial for a while and then suddenly accept it all at once. I love that you didn't do that. Even after Sam finally breaks down and allows himself to feel attracted to Daniel for a little while (By the way, you need not worry about the potential dangers of writing a bad kissing scene - it was wonderful.), he's still torn between his new-found feelings and his fear of being gay.
The scene with Sam and Daniel on the roof was so perfect. I'm not the kind of person who lashes out when they feel threatened or scared, but I still felt like I could relate completely to Sam when his internal turmoil spilled out of him and scalded Daniel. As a reader, it was torture for me to keep reading as Sam shouted and insulted and raged at Daniel because he was too confused and terrified and proud to admit what he was actually feeling. But as a writer, I was in awe of your ability to make Sam seem both harsh and vulnerable at the same time; to make me angry at him for being such an idiot, while simultaneously making me feel like I understood exactly how he was feeling and why he was feeling it and like I somehow couldn't fault him for his outbursts.
I happen to prefer Tchaikovsky to Beethoven, and I loved the argument Sam and Daniel had about their classical composer preferences. I was particularly amused when Sam, after giving his rant about how Tchaikovsky would destroy Beethoven, referred to Beethoven as a crater. That made me laugh. XD
I was also really pleased when the argument was mentioned again in this chapter (1812 ringtone and all). It always makes me happy when authors refer back to elements from previous chapters in their stories.
All in all, I absolutely love it! (as previously stated) XD
