Welcome to the page for my story Songs Left Unsung. I’m Bethany, owner of PlaceToHide.net and fanfic site Extemporaneous. Feedback on this story is welcome and encouraged, so please sign the guestbook or send me an email.



Warning: Please note that this story does contain slash and cest, so read with caution if those are not your thing.

Only one person in the world knows Zac’s biggest secret — his crush on his older brother Taylor. But that one person, his best friend Carrick, has a secret, too. When Carrick moves to Tulsa, all these secrets will be revealed and Zac’s life will be turned upside down.



This story is absolutely, positively 100% fiction. All real people contained within it are merely fictionalized versions of their real selves. No harm or slander is intended by using their likenesses.

Absolutely no money at all is being made from this story; it’s all just for fun.

It. Is. Done.

September 11th, 2014

I started writing this story two years and five months ago. At the time, I was really impressed by authors who could write super lengthy stories. I was also toying with ideas about unrequited love triangles. After letting it stew for a while, I decided to combine those two concepts. Before too long, I had written the first chapter.

Maybe I shouldn’t admit this, but I never had much of a plan for Songs. There were a few scenes I knew had to happen, but the rest was up in the air. I won’t tell you guys what twists I devised later on and which ones I knew all along.

I’ve taken a few long breaks from this story, and I know that it’s probably gone in a few directions that not all of my readers were on board for. It was a bit of an experiment, and it may not have gone perfectly, but that’s life. It’s been a big part of my life for a while, and it’s definitely bittersweet to see it end. But I hope you’ve all enjoyed the ride.

And if you didn’t, don’t let me know, okay? 😉

The last full chapter!

September 8th, 2014

Yes, you read that correctly. The last full chapter (the final one will just be an epilogue) is here. I hope you’ve all enjoyed the ride. I’m sure I’ll have more sentimental stuff to say when I post the epilogue in a few days…

Chapter eighty five!

September 2nd, 2014

Well, I had planned to finish this a bit sooner. Oops? I’m still feeling good about it, though, and I hope you girls are enjoying these last few chapters.

Chapter eighty four

August 26th, 2014

Yup, still chugging along here. There’s very, very little left to go now…

Enjoy this chapter 🙂

Chapter eighty three!

August 22nd, 2014

This is the fastest I’ve updated this story since I started writing it, I believe. I just don’t want you all to forget about it while it’s in the final stretch! I hope you enjoy this chapter.

Chapter eighty one

August 18th, 2014

I’m getting so, so close to the end of this story! I know you’re all nervously hanging on and waiting to see how it all plays out. Hope you enjoy this chapter, one step closer to the end.

Chapter eighty

August 11th, 2014

Eighty chapters! That is just insane. And there’s still more to be written. I’m getting there, though. I can see how it’s all going to play it; it’s just a matter of getting the words out. I hope you all are still enjoying this story. I know it’s been a crazy trip, and we aren’t quite there yet…

New chapter!

August 4th, 2014

Still moving along pretty steadily here with the Camp NaNoWriMo chapters. Hope you guys enjoy this one 🙂

Chapter seventy eight

July 30th, 2014

Not much of a wait this time, huh? Hope you guys enjoy today’s chapter 🙂

Sorry for the wait!

July 23rd, 2014

Well, now that Camp NaNoWriMo is almost over, so is this story. It’s taken me a while to get any more written on it, but now I’m quite a bit closer to the end. But don’t assume you know where it’s going to go. Just keep reading 😉
