He's a young but jaded musician writing lyrics for his band, and she's a naive, frustrated poet looking to break out of her shell; their words collide online. What happens when they meet in high school, unaware of their literary connection?

Our latest podcast episode was all about music in fic. We realised we couldn’t discuss music in fic without bringing up Tropic of Virgo. We then realized there was so much we could discuss about this fic and decided to do the Straight to the Vein. Don’t forget to check out Episode 4 - Fics that Rock!

I hadn't listed to a pod cast before, but I love ToV, so I had to check this out. I'll have to check out other pod casts in the future. :-)

This is one of the first fics I ever read and is still one of my all-time favourites! The level of detail is amazing and the intimacy of the emails that these two share is beautiful. When the status updates would happen - it waas so reflective of the mood of the characters at that time. A classic "Twilight" fix for those that still love a high school romance - but so much more that that. This is a very sophisticated story that should be on everyone's favourite list. It was lovely listening to you ladies talk about it with you own personal affection.
