[Calendar Girls AU] Flowers of Holby are like the women of Holby. Every stage of their growth is more beautiful than the last. But the last phase is always the most glorious. Then, very quickly, they all go to seed.

Albion Brass Band Amateurs (ABBA for short) have got financial problems, and some key players have deserted them, 3 months before the main Yorkshire contest. The band fishes around for money-raising ideas. Enter lanky, flugel-playing Irishman Merlin Emrys, and spoilt, classically-trained trumpeter Arthur Pendragon. It's hate (i.e. lust) at first sight.
Or: The cast of Merlin meets Brassed Off meets Calendar Girls meets the Full Monty in a glorious Yorkshire homage. With Yorkshire beer! A musical director who calls everyone "Love"! And a purple flugelhorn! I might even insert whippets. You have been warned. Contains some ripe language and explicit descriptions of typical band-room banter. Ayup!
Past off-stage non-con episodes and their consequences are described by the affected characters.
