I read this story after a recommendation on twitter. I really enjoyed this story! I couldn’t stop reading it (and the sequels). This brings back so many good memories of my time in the choir singing The Messiah! Thank you so much for writing it.

Oh I just have to tell you that I absolutely love this story and this universe you've created. I've read and reread every story in this verse in the last week and it just doesn't get old. It's amazing the way you've written Castle and Beckett so different from canon and yet so recognizably themselves and I really love the way you write them together.

Very good story, enthralling, and enjoyable. Please keep writing! ! !

So took forever to start this! Trying to catch up on so many fics!
Loving it! Having it based on Handel's 'Messiah' brings back many happy memories from performing it in bible school... I have also seen it performed live a few times and standing for the Hallelujah chorus always gives me chills!
Anyways loving the story - love fics that are completely/partially AU but stay true to their characters! Awesome story telling

Waaaaaaa. Okay I just finished it and it’s soooo good!

One thing I forgot to mention in a previous review was how lovely you set up the murder and the small clues leading up to it.
It’s so clever because it’s not blatantly put out there and it allows for Beckett and Castle’s budding friendship to reach a point in which it would feel organic for them to start investigating the murder together.

Yes! Castle and Beckett theorizing is what I live for
| CoffeeCup218 chapter 3 . 10/7/2017
Ah! I was reminded why I lived this story so much. As a former orchestra player myself (though a more recreational type of orchestra), this story idea just kinda tugs at the heartstrings. It makes me miss it so much!

What an interesting story. Loved reading it and I'm hoping to read the sequel!
| hawkie chapter 24 . 9/19/2017
Rereading this again since you're writing a new sequel. As good as ever.

christmas feels in june are the best christmas feels
also I am emotional
they won't spedn christmas together (which makes sense I guess but ohhh he is going to miss her. and she is going to miss him too and I am fine)
he gave her act one of his opera to read when she has time at ther aunt's house omg omg omg
SHE INVITED HIM TO LISTEN TO CHRISTMAS CAROLING WITOUT TELLING HIM WHAT IT WAS
SHE WAS SINGING AND SHE WAS HAPPY AND SO WAS HE AND I AM CRYING okay I guess
and then he called her like a minute after she left his lft cause he was going to miss her
I am fine
I am also trash
god this story was so good?
I loved that they both investogated the murder even though they shouldn't have. and did the theorizing and it was so freaking good omg
I loved th descriptions of the concert and the rehearsals omg those were so good
I also appreciate that it made me listen to this music and oh wow it's so beautiful (though so far I only listen to the rejoce greatly song but still that was so wonderful)
I love everything about this story
and I need more
I need to read about how kate sings more
and how castle's opera works out
and about them being happy and just all the things
I am okay
I am just very emotional right now because this story was so good and this epilogue was so sweet and I can't live with this being the only chapter I get to read about them as a couple (in this universe) please give me more ? *puppy eyes*
thank you for this story

"Can I give you that hickey now?" "on the couch?" "no, on the neck."
And I was laughing and oh my god that was good
and finally they did the thing I approve
also oh wow what kate said about being angrx with her mom until she learned to forgive her but not being able to forgive herself that was so wow
and castle helped her forgive herself I am fine this is fine everything is fine
SHE WENT TO TAKE CLASSES AT WITH MONTGOMERY HELLO YES I APPROVE OF THIS THIS IS SO GOOD I LOVE IT BYE
| remadora-ftw chapter 22 . 6/24/2017
castle went to kate's place to bring her coffee and a donut except he didn't bring her coffee and a donut cause coffee before a concert is apparently not okay and a donut isn't either and so he only brought the promise with him
honestly that was kind of cute and very sweet omg
and the reviews about the concert yessss good I like
and gates went to see the concert that was a nice touch omg I really like it
and howard offered kate a job as the sopranist since they'll be needing one
and she doesn't know what to do
I kind of hope she accepts it
and castle will go back to his operas? I mean since he is writing at least one about kate?
hmmm I guess I'll know the answer in the next 2 chapters haha
| remadora-ftw chapter 21 . 6/24/2017
okay okay okay okay okay okay okay okay okay *deep breath* I am fine
okay wow okay
kate's reaction to castle's marshmallow question was my reaction to castle's marshmallow question.
who comes up with that idea? what the heck? I mean I know he inveted the s'morelet and all but marshmallows in salad? what?
but the had dinner
and she wanted to help clean up but he didn't let her
he told her about the opera omgggg
and she told him about some students of hers and ahhh I love that they're having a good time
and and and and and and and
he wants her. to be the first person. to read his opera when it's finished
and then the kissing
oh my god yes that was so good
and then he stopped and oh god
he didn't want to be responsible for her not being able to sing
i don't know how to react to that omg
but kate called it arrogant so I'll agree with her oh god
I mean it was probably also thoughtful of him...
I looooveeeedddd this chapter bye
also I am dead
because he wants her to be the first person to read his opera when it's finished T_T
he was so close to telling her he's in love with her bye
so good omg
