Scary good. Extremely well written, and I applaud you for doing a style that is rarely ever seen in literature - combining music with life in a way that just makes SENSE. Well done.

My first reaction to this fic is that it is beautiful, but that simple praise hardly does it justice.

I look at this piece as I would a poem because the voice is distinctly poetic, but it shares space with narrative elements. My interpretation is that the "you" of the direct address is Clark, and his metaphoric dance partner is then Lex. The opening movs of the dance is that fateful day on the riverbank, and your audience shares a knowledge of what follows.

What sets this piece apart is how you describe their interactions in terms of motion and music. My personal favorite is the rendering of Lex's curiosity to music. If my interpretation is correct Lex is the one who wants something different with Clark. You leave us with the hope that he makes the right choice.
