    Summary

    "Music is the silence between the notes" ~ Claude Debussy; or, life is what happens when you're busy wishing you could be in a practice room.

    Set very shortly after "Ach, des Knaben Augen". And for the first time, I'm gonna say that you have to have read at least that fic for this to make much sense. (All the Steinway!verse pieces are more or less organized here on my DW journal.) Copious linkage to music referenced throughout the text of the fic and also gathered up together at the end in the Notes.

    Warnings: Casual homophobia by an old person. Some music kink here, too, of course. And lastly, this fic contains a whole lotta original characters; if this does not float your boat, get thee to -- well. Not a nunnery. Get thee to someplace with fewer OCs?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beautiful. That’s really all I can say. Everything about this is gorgeous. The love is epic and feels real in the way that few things do. The world of music feels complete and so achingly warm and familiar (to the point I began to regret choosing a different path and that was a decision I made years and years ago). On their own those two things would have been enough for me to adore a story but put together into one work???? Be still my beating heart. There’s many more things I love but typing on a phone is difficult just rest assured that this is possibly my favorite piece of writing ever. Read and reread and reread again please

    Summary

    A senator, war hero, rising star in the theatre of American politics, filthy rich southerner from money older than dirt. A scrappy kid from New York, drowning in student loans, barely getting by, brilliant. Useful.

    You see where this is going. You follow.

    Summary

    Graves was a lead Auror, and as such prided himself on his ability to stay calm in a crisis, to keep his head, to remain even-keeled and articulate no matter the situation. So no one was more surprised than he was when he opened his mouth and heard himself blurting out, “Excuse me, ma’am, but I would like to purchase your son.”

    Seemingly without hesitation, and before Mary Lou had the chance to respond, Credence burst forth with his own, “Yes, sir, you may have me.”

    Then they both fell silent, equally shocked at their words. Merlin’s balls. Somewhere upstate, Graves was sure his father had just burst into laughter and had no idea why.
