Halcyon - Bandom (MCR), NC-17, Mikey/Frank.

Title: Halcyon
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17
Length: About 12k.
Characters/Pairings: Mikey/Frank, secondary Ray/Gerard.

Summary: It started, as it often did, as a favor for Gerard. Gerard was the reason Mikey was a supermodel who wore both suits and dresses for work, and Gerard was the reason that Mikey helped out a budding designer named Frank Iero.

But falling in love...that was all Mikey and Frank, really.

Notes: For [community profile] bandombigbang 2015. Be sure to check out the wonderful complementary art by chibifukurou!

This story includes references to depression, addiction, and mild gender dysphoria (Mikey is genderqueer). The non-binary stuff riffs off my personal experience and isn't meant to represent a greater whole. (Also, I'm DFAB and Mikey's DMAB, which means some of it was speculation by necessity.) Thanks to the mods of this lovely challenge (I can't believe I've been doing it for four years now!). This story is in tribute to the great people I've met through bandom, many of whom helped me sort through gender identity stuff through example or direct conversation or both.

Summary: Pete is Patrick's escort when Patrick's not busy being a superstar producer and Pete's not busy worrying about his failing band.

Notes: My second of two stories for akamine_chan's fanworks auction; thanks to sperrywink for the donation and the detailed prompt (and sorry for taking so long!), and thanks to faildamaged for the beta. Title's from One Direction's Over Again.

And highways I call home - Bandom (MCR/FOB), R, Mikey/Patrick.

Title: And highways I call home
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance/Fall Out Boy)
Rating: R.
Length: ~7k.
Characters/Pairings: Mikey/Patrick.

Summary: When Mikey joins Fall Out Boy on tour for a couple weeks, he finds out all kinds of surprising things about Patrick. That he's a werewolf is pretty low on the list.

Notes: This was written for [personal profile] akamine_chan's fanworks auction (and my deepest apologies to [personal profile] lucifuge5 for going so far over the projected finish date, oops). The story's set loosely in summer 2014, with some liberties taken for creative reasons/because I felt like it. Title's from MCR's Summertime also because I felt like it.

Additional content notes: Mildly spoilery. )

Length: ~10,500 words.
Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: Pete Wentz, sports anchor at WFOB, has a new mission when Patrick Stump takes the lead anchor chair: Operation Best Friend. But what happens when it turns into a romantic project?

Notes: My story for [community profile] bandombigbang 2014, wave three. Mix by [personal profile] lucifuge5. Give it a listen!

My deepest gratitude to:

-[personal profile] melusina and [personal profile] romantical for betaing. Any remaining errors are mine, either accidental or deliberate.
-The mods of [community profile] bandombigbang for all their work.
-Everyone on Twitter who saw my original musings following the interview where Pete and Patrick read the news and insisted I take my ideas further. You're all to blame!

Title: Kiss Kiss
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: ~1900 words.
Characters/Pairings: Frank/Gerard.

Summary: "That's what you were thinking?" Frank asks. "And you thought you were being selfish?"

(Or: Gerard and Frank expand their D/s play to include subspace.)

Notes: Written for this prompt on [community profile] bandom_meme. It takes place during an unspecified tour that I made up at an unspecified time (although it's in the past for obvious reasons).

Barnacle - Bandom (FOB), PG, Pete/Patrick.

Title: Barnacle
Fandom: Bandom (Fall Out Boy)
Rating: PG.
Length: About 1000 words.
Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: It's not like biology's ever paid attention to anyone's plans, much less Patrick's avoid-Pete's-heat tour plans.

Notes: I originally wrote the concept of an asexual character in an alpha/beta/omega universe not the desperate type, an Avengers Pepper/Natasha story. I was going to leave it there, but romantical commented with "In my head, Pete and Patrick are now Pepper and Natasha." and this happened. Whoops.

Title: Frank the crankiest elf
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: 2065 words.
Characters/Pairings: Frank/Gerard.

Summary: There were two things Frank hated: Christmas, and disappointing his mom. Considering his mom's last name had been Claus ever since she remarried, it was a bit of a fucking problem.

Notes: Who doesn't love a (very) late Christmas story? Thanks to real Frank for hating Christmas, real Gerard for tweeting what Christmas songs he liked around the actual day, and courtneylovedcobain for the inspiring art of Frank wearing an offensive Christmas sweater.

Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: Patrick wakes up alone in the middle of the night (which is not weird) with a small box and Pete's phone on resting on top of Pete's pillow (which is).

Notes: This story and the title were inspired by Pete's tweet. Hurrah for quick ficlets written in the middle of the night!

Petezza - Bandom (FOB), R, Pete/Patrick.

Title: Petezza
Fandom: Bandom (Fall Out Boy)
Rating: R.
Length: ~1170 words.
Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: A pizza night in isn't exactly wine by the beach, but Pete's just fine, thanks.

Notes: Written for the "food" square on my [community profile] kink_bingo card. This story was inspired by a couple things:

1. Seeing Fall Out Boy (for the first time!) in San Francisco. When doing the acoustic set, Pete told Patrick something along the lines of, "When you said we were getting intimate on the beach, I didn't know this is what you meant." (The show was on a pier.) He referenced bringing wine and said "speaking of blue balls" to transition to Grand Theft Autumn (and Patrick complimented him on it).

2. The band voting Patrick the funniest drunk. Probably didn't use it to full advantage here, but there you go.

There's also the fact that Pete constantly tweets about how much he loves pizza. This link wasn't specifically inspiration because he posted after I wrote the story, but Pete actually got pizza in Atlanta. First rule of bandom in play again.

(So yes, if you haven't seen the AO3 tags, this story's about food and getting off on eating/feeding and purposely getting a little drunk. /long notes)

Givin' You What You Love - Bandom (FOB), NC-17, Pete/Patrick.

Title: Givin' You What You Love
Fandom: Bandom (Fall Out Boy)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: 1475 words.
Characters/Pairings: Pete/Patrick.

Summary: Pete probably shouldn't be sneaking around with the hot, snarky contestant. But it's kind of worth it. (Best Ink AU.)

Notes: From ladyfoxxx: "Still want an AU where Patrick is a contestant on Best Ink & has an illicit affair with the hot host." Turns out I wanted it, too. Who knew? If you haven't seen Best Ink, the Joe I'm referring to in the story is Capobianco, not Trohman.

and the music's all you've got - Bandom (Panic!/MCR), PG, gen.

Title: and the music's all you've got
Fandom: Bandom (Panic! at the Disco and My Chemical Romance)
Rating: PG.
Length: About 2200 words.
Characters/Pairings: Jon, Ray, Cassie, and Christa.

Summary: Jon's music career dried up, so he had to take the job teching for U2. What's Ray's excuse?

Notes: I have no idea where this story came from, but it wouldn't leave me alone until I wrote. And then I wrote it, and it didn't match my Jon headcanon at all, so I tucked it away...and it still wouldn't leave me alone. Maybe my brain knows something I don't.

There are non-explicit references to past/present addiction in both Panic! and MCR. I tagged alcoholism because that's the most prevalent in the story, but there's also some discussion of marijuana.

Idle Hands - Bandom (MCR), NC-17, Ray/Frank.

Title: Idle Hands
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 1300 words.
Characters/Pairings: Ray/Frank.

Summary: He gets like this sometimes, more frequently now than he used to, and while nobody's better than Frank at being a little shit, he can never quite get Ray to a peak. And it grates at Frank.

Or: Frank breaks Ray's strobe light, and Ray gets payback.

Notes: Written for the rough body play square on my kink_bingo card. I played fast and loose with canon, so anything off is (hopefully) on purpose. In case the link in the summary stops working at any point, Frank's telling a story about how Ray would play along with a strobe light during the making of "Planetary (GO!)". Thanks to ladyfoxxx for help with the title!

Title: Powderpuff
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 2200 words.
Characters/Pairings: Frank/Gerard.

Summary: It isn't like Frank's opposed to powderpuff football. The timing's just kind of bad.

Notes: Written for the gender play square on my [community profile] kink_bingo card. Frank and Gerard are seniors, so I didn't warn for underage in the tags on AO3, but they are still in high school.

Almost Goes Without Saying - Bandom (MCR/Panic), NC-17, Ray/Ian/Spencer.

Title: Almost Goes Without Saying
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance and Panic! at the Disco)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 4700 words.
Characters/Pairings: Ray/Ian/Spencer.

Summary: Ian discovers Ray's Music purely by accident. Spencer discovers it on purpose.

Notes: Written for The Ray Toro Fest-A-Thon for this prompt: Ray/Spencer or Ray/Ian or Ray/Ian/Spencer, AU where Ray owns/runs a music store and knows everything about everything and Spencer and/or Ian come in to get some equipment and get obsessed with him after seeing him play.

Bonus points if Panic are still big and Ray has no idea who they are.


Thanks to everyone on Twitter for their encouragement! (Also on AO3.)

Well, I Changed For Good - Bandom (MCR), NC-17, Frank/Gerard.

Title: Well, I Changed For Good
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17
Length: ~33k.
Characters/Pairings: Frank/Gerard.

Content notes: Includes spoilers. )

Summary:
2003: Frank's a werewolf that changes when it's too cold outside, and Gerard isn't. But considering Frank saved Gerard when he got partially eaten by starving werewolves, Gerard should be. Gerard, for his part, is too busy getting sober after the loss of his band to remember that the attack actually happened.

2012: They reunite in Southern California while both are struggling to cope. They've both lived lives full of disasters apart; how much of a disaster can it be if they spend some time together before Frank leaves the country?

It's only when a cold snap hits LA that everyone finds out what disaster really is.

Author's notes: Also on AO3.

This story was written for Wave One of [community profile] bandombigbang 2013, and it's an AU of Maggie Stiefvater's novel Shiver. (Appropriately, the title of this story is based on a lyric from Coldplay's song Shiver.) I took liberties with the Shiver story/canon, and even though I intended this to be a fork-in-the-road AU (with werewolves), I also played with the factual MCR canon that made it into the story. That means it's as made up as all of my bandom fics! Fiction, yay!

I also consider this to be the third part in an informal Frank/Gerard werewolf trilogy. They don't share universes or anything; I've just written a Frank/Gerard werewolf story every year I've been writing bandom fic. The first, A Lesser Disaster, was actually my first bandom story ever posted. The second, Strays, was written for Werewolf Big Bang 2012. I got this idea, and I figured it was time to bring the werewolves to the main fandom stage, as it were. (I think this is going to be the last part, but then, I never really intended to write the other two. Maybe I'll try writing Ray/Mikey werewolves instead.)

All the thanks in the world to [personal profile] tuesdaysgone for the beta (all remaining errors are mine, believe me), to my younger sister for insisting I read Shiver at the beginning of the year, to the wonderful BBB mods for juggling everything, and to everyone in my sphere for putting up with me giving support and encouragement during yet another Big Bang cycle. See you all again for Wave Three!

"red, gold, and blue", Bandom (MCR), NC-17, Mikey/Gerard/Frank.

Title: red, gold, and blue
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)
Rating: NC-17.
Length: About 1500 words.
Characters/Pairings: Mikey/Gerard/Frank.

Summary: Mikey knows Gerard's ideological reasons for posing in alpha/beta erotica with his brother. He doesn't get the rest of the reasons until he sees the hot photographer.

Notes: This is all [personal profile] cee_m's fault.

For bandom readers: This is a Neckz 'n' Throatz AU, which is a Teen Wolf fanon universe. Which means this is a bandom AU of a Teen Wolf AU. (The beauty of sharing multiple fandoms with people!) Luckily, all you need to know is in the story. And really, porn, so who cares about the details?

(I may or may not write the sequel where Mikey does Frank a favor and poses with the hot human model when one of his other models falls through. But believe me, it would only be for time reasons and not because I don't want to get Ray in the mix.)

For Teen Wolf readers/everyone: Yeah, I don't know either. The sex scenes aren't fully negotiated on-screen, but they are fully consensual.
