Story Arc: Mundane (The Vacation House)
Title: Incoherent Growling
Summary: Why music is a very subjective thing for many.
A/N: This takes place when George and co. are on their way to the vacation house. I have so much on this arc planned out already I'd like it finished by the end of the year.
A series of white noise and high-pitched wobbles rang out from the car speakers, crescendos passing like the road signs up ahead. Connor got rather impatient, fiddling with the radio through how many stations already, most of them either on commercial or playing mainstream blather.

"What are you looking for?" said George, leaning in closer from the back seat. Connor stopped twiddling the knob and turned a right into their exit, leading them into a road flanked by tall pine trees. White noise from the speakers faded out to reveal another kind of noise--that of drums beating a hundred per minute, accompanied by screeching guitars and what sounded like growling, though maybe not human.

"Hey, that's my jam right there!" said George, head bobbing with the rhythm (he'd be the only one to make out an actual rhythm to the song). Flynn and Connor looked back at him, stunned, while the latter managed to shake his head at him. Connor had his hand on the knob, turning it one-fifth of the way, and at once the incoherent growling shifted to more gentle tones, that of a piano and a soft-spoken voice.

"There," said Connor. "It's a lot more relaxing, huh?"

Flynn agreed eagerly. George sank back in his seat, somewhat disappointed.

Maybe George needs to get himself a personal music player. Nice that he could hear the music no-one else could :)

The music players he has in those times are rather big and clunky, actually XDD And he likes to believe that he has this special talent for sensing melody and rhythm. In fact... ;)

Ahahahaha, these boys. They're almost as bad as the Dhalsivs. Almost. Looks like George is out of luck this time.

Maybe worse than that, even :P

When George takes hold of the driver's seat, luck changes fast ;)
