Generally I hate song-fics and I'm not sure why I originally ended up reading this somewhere in 2015, but now reading it again 7 years later... You've honestly outdone yourself and have invoked the same feelings I had when I first read it. I also thought this was an important read now with the Johnny V Amber case. This is a super controversial topic but you've written it so well, portraying it so respectfully. I'm glad this fic exists and I hope plenty of people read and learn from it as I did when I was younger.

I've literally read and re read and re read and re read... Most of the music I listen to now is from this... I made my sister read it and she doesn't even watch one piece... Thank you thank you thank you

Everytime I hear music that was used in this fic I have to find and reread it again. The only band au I've read all the way through because it is the best one and the others I tried simply don't compare to the work that was put into this fic.

Okay, I don't know if you will read this, but I must write this. I am compelled. This was just so... warming, I guess. I loved every aspect of this story and was really grateful to my 12-hours-ago braincells that worked to click on this story. I write 'every aspect' because I don't think I can fit them individually in words here. It has been quite some years that you had written this story. I hope you are well and healthy. This story... it was finding something I didn't even know I needed... Thank you for powering through your own battle and writing this. Lots of love!

I read this the first time when I was like 15 and I reread it a bunch of times ever since. It's forever going to be one of my favorite stories and I'm so thankful that you shared it. I love the way you write and how you include the songs into it. Thanks to that I also fell in love with Motion City Soundtrack.
I don't know if you are still reading or getting this comment but I still wanted to get this out.
Thanks a lot 3

Had to reread this fic and still love it to no end. Finally I got a Musiclist for it so that I can enjoy the songs you used too. Hope you are fine and maybe write some great fic again.

Okay so this story stayed with me because of how much it frustrated me.
I actually went and wrote a different ending for this story (not published, just for myself). I really liked the way you integrated songs into it and the idea of it and I think it's super creative which is why I didn't stop earlier.
Okay so first of all, Sanji is not an action driven main character. He is just getting pushed around by everyone. His father forces him to join and his place within the new band is precarious at best.
It seems like it's entirely dependent on Zoro's acceptance of him and everyone is constantly giving Sanji shit for how he treats Zoro and that Sanji needs to understand Zoro's problems. They basically let Zoro get away with treating Sanji like shit and make Sanju feel bad for trying to stand up for himself.
Then the relationship with Baby. The way you try to push this helplessness onto Zoro and portray him as this passive character, once again instead of action driven is driving me nuts. No one in this story actually does anything, except for shit on Sanji.
They are all just constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It's written as if it's a love story, which it's not. It's a story filled with manipulation and dependency issues and unrequited love (and that's just the part between Sanji and Toro). Then there's also the abusive weird relationship Zoro has going on with Baby, who he cheats on with Sanji (?) in an effort to get her to break up with him
Zoro isolates Sanji, who is depending on the band for a home, a job and a peer group and he can't talk openly to them because he's been sworn to secrecy and everything everyone always talks to him about is Zoro, which once again shows how little they care for him.
No one gets a consistent characterization. Prime example: Ussop, Luffy, Robin, Sanji, Zoro, Baby, Kaya
The only action driven character in the story is Nami and she's super unimportant.
Baby is portrayed as untouchable. She won't get apprehended, there won't be a trial, she can still perform / gets away with everything to an unrealistic degree, which just serves to increase the angst, but it's not done very well because no one takes actions against her or even thinks about it, which is INFURIATING.

I also find it very curious that you're only focusing on one power imbalance. Sanji lives with people who will always choose to over him and has a horrible relationship that's hurting him. And the loss of which equals the loss of a home, work place and friends all in one.

I really like the idea. I think the songs are interesting, but the way you're portraying the relationship is extremely exhausting. Sanji and Zoro are boyfriends but Zoro is still together with his abusive girlfriend and won't break up with her.
No one knows about this and Sanji keeps getting shit for it because Toro is behaving 10 types of awkward (that Luffy scene was terrible).
I think what bothers me most is that nothing gets cleared up in a significant way. No conflict is ever resolved. They don't get anything done but they keep talking about feelings without acting on any of them.
And I just know that you'll keep dragging this out, especially after Sanji so proudly stated that he wouldn't be messing around with Zoro as long as he's still together with his abusive ex and then immediately called him his bf anyway.

I hope you're okay. Your book is fantastic if that's any consolation but it's probably not.

This was quite possibly one of the best zosan fics I’ve ever read, there were so many small, intimate nuances in this that even if I had all the time in the world I wouldn’t be able to properly appreciate them. It made me appreciate music and singing in a way I never have, there’s something so raw and honest about this fic that I honestly couldn’t ever hope to relocate. This was nothing short of beautiful. Thank you so much for this.
