Just read all the chapters in one night and I'm totally obsessed. I particularly like Daniel's dialogue. :) Update soon!

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

So I haven't been on FictionPress for very long but I'm loving what I find here. Especially this one. The dialogue is brilliant and I might be a little in love with Daniel. If the whole thing with Sam doesn't work out he can always give me a call.
Are there any plans to continue? I'm dying to know what happens between Daniel and Sam. Seriously. Dying.
| CaseyBear chapter 15 . 12/20/2009
Are you serious?
Just ending it there?
I'm pretty sure Sam's head is going to explode.
