About the Fic: This fic was written for nina_ds as part of the OT3 ficathon of 2007. The request was for flirting/playfulness, genuine tenderness, and sexual tension. I hope the results are acceptable! :-)
About the Title: This fic is not a story about food. It’s a story about love, and music. The title comes from the following quote:
If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour!
-William Shakespeare, "Twelfth Night", Act 1 scene 1
About the Music: This is an audio!fic, with its own (mostly) original soundtrack. Please see the endnotes for info about the music.
Disclaimer/Apology: I don’t own these characters, I’m just borrowing them. For better or worse, I happen to be American. So please excuse my English.
BEFORE READING ON:
Please try the player below to make sure you can play and hear the sound file. If it works, read on! If it doesn’t work, check your computer’s volume and sound settings.
If it still doesn’t work, try reading the story at Teaspoon instead, where the sound files are included in the story as links instead of as embedded players.
