Dazed and Confused, Part One
“wanted a woman, never bargained for you”
Author’s Note: this is the first chapter in a short series of events leading up to and including Jimmy receiving the Founder’s Award from the Seattle Experience Music Project Museum in late 2015. It’s way off in the future from the main Whisper to the Thunder storyline, but nevertheless relevant to the plot of this journey. Although this chapter is SFW, future ones in this series will most definitely be NSFW indeed. Sorry for the cheesy story title, but it’s better than Sleepless in Seattle or The Mudshark Incident Revisited.

Ari surveyed the catering leftovers in the post-rehearsal debriefing room, not exactly enthused with her options. She and the rest of Tempest plus a large group of other performers spent the day at the Museum of Pop Culture’s Sky Church venue, preparing for a benefit concert held in honour of Jimmy’s receiving the Museum’s Founders Award. The event organizers wanted the show to be mostly a surprise for Jimmy, so the performer list was kept private. Jimmy knew Ari and Chris, Tempest’s singer, were going to be a part of the show, but he did not know that the entire band would be involved in a one-off special performance.
