Reviews for Band Camp
lindsey and marie enterprises chapter 8 . 5/21/2013
You must have some crazy dreams! This makes me ashamed to be a drum major...and Marie wanted to be one! *shudders* Still, very well-written story.

I was in band in high school but I don't remember band camp like this! Nonetheless, this is off to a . . . peculiar start. I like it! I will read more of this soon! I love the names too! They fit the geekiness associated with people in band!

This /is/ horrifying. Though my band director isn't like this at all (quite the opposite), I can see why you listed this under is scary when he starts ranting off about where not to breath and yes, you can commit murder in his band hall under his supervision as long as you don't get blood on his carpet. XD

That sounds a tad too realistic. I have to say the section leaders of my band were kind of that sadistic. You have an amazing writing ability and style. (I read all of it, I'm just reviewing from the first chapter)Good work.
Winter's Harvest chapter 1 . 5/13/2008
This is strangely, horribly wonderful. The writing itself is seamless, so pat yourself on the back for that. The scenario itself is a little too realistic; so now I have more of a reason to respect/fear the marching band. And I can't help but wonder

-how is this based on a true story? Was there a megalomaniac masquerading as a band teacher somewhere?

Also, the name Lordfyre is pretty much the ultimate in last names.

Happily favorited

You have an excellent grasp of the language, and you write quite eloquently.

This story is to highschool band what the movie "Full-Metal Jacket" is to Marine boot camp. That's all that can really be said.

I shall eagerly await the next chapter.

Windryder1 chapter 5 . 3/8/2008
I was in my High School band for 2 year, but I thankfully missed band camp. Your writing skills is experienced, and actually had me rivited to keep reading. It was a perfect comedy/horror for me. Mr. Lordfyre is like the dark side of Mr. Sieben, my band instructor.

I was laughing and horrified at the same time. Good job. :) A friend of mine, R. E. Ellison, said I'd appreciate this story, and he was right.
R. E. Ellison chapter 5 . 3/8/2008
A well thought out, demented twist on the concept of "being true to your school". (And that's a compliment!) The humor is mixed well with what is, in actuality, a pretty horrific account of one kind of almost-acceptable cult behavior. Careful not to slip (too far) into parody - which, so far, you have avoided.

God forbid any of my old band teachers got this into their heads! Fortunately, all they ever seemed to be worried about was overly-enthusiatic band-boosters and not culling their herd by firearm...though I'm certain the thought entered their minds.

You're zipping right along, seemingly pretty breezily, and I look forward to reading more as you continue.
ZoeMarie chapter 1 . 3/6/2008
I love it so far:)
No Longer An Account chapter 4 . 2/27/2008
Chapter four is a bit short.

Okay, chapter four is EXTREMELY short.

But I like this story; it's quite funny.
No Longer An Account chapter 2 . 2/26/2008
This story . . . is excellent. There's really no other word to describe it. You are a master of the horror-comedy.

Sort of reminds me of the band at my highschool . . . and "band Nazi" is what we used to call the director, before they fired him.

Keep up the good work.

By the way, I really like the names you came up with for the characters. I wish I could think of names like that.
