play it all night long - thanks and a/n  
First thing, obligatory thanks: to _izu_ who did some seriously amazing art despite problematic circumstances and omg I love it so much, go check it out if you haven't done that already. Now. *loves* ;) And a lot of thanks to wandersfound (who had totally got the same idea as me by the way, oh our twin brains) who did an amazing job beta-ing this and who saved me from a bunch of mistakes which you really don't want to know. And who's amazing at Ameri-picking the mess between Brit and American that my English is. And who had to deal with me sending drafts way later than I could have. <333 Thanks really, you were a life-saver. And thanks to the mods at spnj2bigbang for running the whole thing, that's a given. And to everyone on my fl who did cheerleading duty when I signed for it. ;) <333

That said, this was the first time doing this particular challenge and I had such fun writing this. Right, I hadn't planned to write the rom-com that this ended up being but I guess it's how writing goes for you, right? I kind of always had wanted to write something music-focused concerning SPN and when I had the idea back in December I decided I couldn't let it pass, and I just hope that if you decide to read it you'll have as much of a good time as I had writing it.

Also, last small thing about the brief a/n in the master post: I do value concrit and if I had stuff I could improve (even if I did my best), then I would love to hear it. As I said, anonymous comments are enabled and PMs are there too and my e-mail is on my profile, in case.

Also, Warren Zevon is underrated and gives awesome titles to steal when you're desperately searching for one. ;) And okay, that's really all I guess. :D

Alright. Let me... let me just preface this by saying that I don't like AUs. If it's a canon divergence thing, fine. I can deal with that. But I can't ever quite process completely taking characters out of their backstories. In my mind, they are so inherently connected to their story that to remove them from that... it changes who they are. I came across a link to this fic via a Destiel rec list, and it was noted as being one of the reccer's top picks. The reccer seemed to have a thing for AUs, so I passed over most of them that were listed, but I happened to be watching Sleepless in Seattle at the moment, so I figured 'what the hell' and clicked on it. I almost changed my mind when I looked at the wordcount, because I wasn't really looking for a lengthy fic today. Obviously, I changed my mind, and went ahead and gave it a go, even though it was an AU, and as previously stated, I *hate* AUs.
That said:
It is now 2am here, and far later than I intended to stay up tonight, but I just *had* to finish all of this in one sitting. There was literally not a single thing I disliked about this fic. Everyone's characterization was absolutely spot-on, and more importantly, you *made the characterization make sense in the new context.* That's my main problem with AUs, and you handled it *magnificently.* The links for the music mentioned in the fic were marvelous, and it added a lot, I think. Hearing the emotions of the songs in conjunction with what was happening... Truly a brilliant choice on your part. The bit during the radio show when the woman called in and requested Hey Jude... I'm not gonna lie, I cried. I don't often do that with fanfic. Also, for the majority of the last chapter, I was sitting here literally flailing and squealing to myself (which totally doesn't make me sound pathetic, what are you talking about?) to the point where one of my flatmates actually poked her head in my bedroom door to make sure I was alright. I had to assure her that yes, I am *definitely* alright. Oh well, she thinks I'm a bit of an odd duck, anyway.
... -blushes at the novel of fangirliness above- Anyway. I see that this fic was posted quite a while back now, and I don't even know if you're going to read this, but I just thought I should let you know that I *thoroughly* appreciated it, and I fully intend to read more of your stuff when it is not 2am (2:15 now, I've been sitting here trying to think how to word my feelings in a manner that is semi-coherent. -blushes again-) and I have to go to class in the morning.
Anyway, part of what I wanted to say: If you ever need a beta for something, let me know. I would be *more* than happy to oblige. -not so subtly follows you on tumblr, twitter, LJ, etc-
...Wow, that really is quite the novel, isn't it? Sorry about that... I'm just going to go to bed now and pray that this whole thing isn't complete incoherent nonsense courtesy of the cold meds I am currently on and the late (early?) hour.
