I remember this one from a while back. Very interesting, I hope you continue.
I have the rest of the story planned out, but for various reasons, I've not had time to finish it. I hope to some time this year. x

please tell me this fic has every intention of continuing becoz frankly it's awesome.
thnx for sharing!!! ^-^
I have every intention of completing this story, but life has kept me too busy to sit down and focus on the story. I currently have two visitors staying, but once they're gone in a couple of weeks, I'll have more time. Thanks for the lovely review!

I frakin' love McCoy, he is so witty!
I am also loved the bathroom scene, I swear Gaila sometimes can't take a hint:)
And I would like to see Kirk maybe get a little possessive!
P.s. thanks for adding a little Chekov and Sulu fluff:)

OMG! So good! I know there are a few music AU out there, but was never that interested in them. I’m so glad I didn’t pass this fic by. It’s so good. A small note, Vulcans are cooler than Humans, not warmer (tons of fics get this mixed up, so it’s not a big deal). I’m on to the next chapter.
Glad you're enjoying it! I've read that Vulcans are cooler - I just love the idea of all that heat! Maybe I should write a separate fic in which I use that as a trope. :-) Thanks for reading and commenting.

I hope their try out goes as planned!!
And I will admit, a possessive Spock is way hot:)
I can't wait for more!!
P.s. I also love a jealous Uhura, it makes my day, as evil as that sounds;)
The results of the auditions will appear in chapter 4. I'm just finishing off chapter 3 at the moment. :-) There'll be more of possessive!Spock and jealous!Uhura - it doesn't sound evil at all! :-)

Hee! Jim and his "healthy libido" made me smile. As did the mention of how he got overheated while playing in the practice room--I feel you, Jim! :D This is awesome.
Glad you're still enjoying it!

You've got some great personalities mixing in here, and it's interesting seeing them all try to find their way around each other.
As for Spock, hmmm. Jealous? Insecure? Had to label the guy of course but he certainly has some issues going on there somewhere - happily it's a different situation behind closed doors.
Wonderfully written as always, and thanks for sharing.

Holy fudge nuggets, this story is great and I can's wait for the next installment, truly!!
I love the premise and such, plus the dialogue, just everything is so great, especially the starfleet senior officers being passionate about music, gosh!
And I will admit that I love the romance portion, especially at the end:)
Fudge nuggets? LOL! The premise is proving harder for me to write than I expected, as they're not falling into their usual routines that I'm familiar with. There will be romance. But not before there's a bit of angst... :-)

I love it! Although, I can't really imagine the Bolero being as powerful as it is with a full orchestra using only a saxophonist and percussionist, no matter how talented they may be. The draw of the piece comes from the intricate layering of different instruments to create the drawing complexity of Ravel's masterpiece. Still, well done, I love it!
I wanted to include a piece of music that everyone would recognise, so I chose Bolero and had Spock say pretty much what you have, because I realised it wouldn't have anywhere close to the same kind of impact with only one instrument. I'm glad you're enjoying it, though! :-)

This makes me so. Freaking. Happy! As a super nerdy music major, this sort of AU always makes me turn to mush. Especially when Jim plays the clarinet like me!!!!! I flailed for real. And I never pictured Spock as a percussionist, but I love the thought!
I've wanted to write an orchestral AU since last summer, but someone on LJ beat me to it and did such a fantastic job, I let the idea go. But then someone was searching for AU music fic and I ended up doing a commentfic for it and then... Spock as percussionist was partly inspired by the bells in Amok Time, and also giving him an 'instrument' that doesn't require a lot of emotionalism to play. It's cool you play the clarinet. Now I'm going to have to be extra careful what I write, because my instruments are violin and piano! :-)
