nafs: Moments When You Can't Deny What's True
august 2008 by turlough
REC: Backstreet Boy Nick Carter gets a phone call from Pete who's planning something special for Spencer's birthday. At the party Nick meets Patrick. This story was my introduction to bandslash and I still have a lot of love for it. I especially like the in-depth look we get into the music creation and recording process and the fabulous characterisations and band dynamics.

QUOTE: "Yeah." And okay, he's venturing into bitchy now. Maybe he should reign it in. Later. "Like, how would you feel if I broke up verse three, made half of it part of the chorus and half of it just a fade-out at the end?"(also at http://archiveofourown.org/works/69806 )
"Dude, remind me what song I sent you and I'll be right there."
"File name is 'Death to Howies cellphone' which I hope means something to you, because it has fuck all to do with this song."
Nick chuckles into the phone and okay, maybe Patrick can relax a little bit. Who couldn't with that in their ear?
"Oh man. Yeah, there's a story there. Okay. Um, so you want to break up the third verse... how exactly? I mean, if I was going to do it, I'd like, take the first and third lines and pair them with the first and third choruses, but not..."
"...not the one that goes into the bridge. No, I agree, that would totally fuck things up. And I sort of want to kill the fourth line all together."
"Yeah, it's kind of weak. But it's important to like, the idea of the song."
"Could be. I'll think about it." There's an odd tapping sound at the end of the phone. "Hey, have you listened to the first track yet?"
"No, not yet." Patrick admits, glancing at his inbox. "I kind of wanted to fix things first."
"That's cool. I wanted to say, that was kind of awesome, the intro arrangement. I wouldn't have thought of it, but it totally works."
And Patrick can just feel himself going red. "Thanks man. I just... this is your solo album. I wanted to show off your voice." (47,810 words)
