    Summary

    Tout Ensemble means "all together," but also refers to parts that are assembled to form a whole.

    Abilities and tempers are stretched to their limits during the recording of "A Night at the Opera." John isn't sure exactly why any of this is happening, especially having to learn the double bass for "'39." But he's going to learn.
     

    Freddie rolled his eyes. "Oh, for fuck's sake. Of course we could bring in a ratty old tap dancer and someone who plays trumpet. We could get a bassist and a harpist in from the Phil. But where's the meaning in that? What do we LEARN from it?"

    The words left John's mouth before he had a chance to weigh them in his mind. "What do YOU learn from making US do things like this?"

    Summary

    It had taken months; months of trying to be in the right place at the right time, of hanging around his usual London jaunts, outside gig venues. It had taken months of waiting, playing the right games, keeping up with the news to know where he was going to be next. He'd returned home defeated, but he couldn't stop himself from trying once more when he heard that Queen were to play in Dublin.

    Despite all the trying, Jim still doesn't remember how he's ended up in an armchair at one of Freddie Mercury's legendary parties, with the man himself in his lap.

    OR

    Jim is a groupie, and he won't take no for an answer.

    Summary

    I feel so helpless like a boat against the tide - I wish the summer wind could bring back Paradise... ~ Styx, 'The Best of Times'

    After the year of 1974 Brian May is grateful for his Old Lady, who has been with him all these years. Even when everything else seems lost, he has his music and he has her.

    (Or, Brian has gotten over hepatitis and gangrene during and after a tour -sort of-, and is feeling awfully low. He always has his beloved Red Special, though. And -he hopes- he still has his friends.)

    Summary

    Because of a power outage at their hotel Brian and Roger spend an evening during the Sheer Heart Attack tour in the van to have some alone time from their bandmates. Roger is thinking about how he wants to write a song about his love for Brian and their new relationsship. He won't let them not being able to be public about their love stop him.

    Summary

    The morning was almost perfect at the Ridge Farm Studios.

    Except for the fact, John's son was soon to be born and Roger forgot they were leaving at 6 PM. He probably hooked up with some girl.

    Based on a Tumblr post.
    (Caller: "We have your wife."
    Brian: "I don't have a wife."
    Caller: "Who's this blonde who just spit on my face and called me a bitch then?"
    John: "Oh my god, they have Roger.")
