Thing-Thing: bandombigbang
When Gerard signed the admissions paperwork for the Fordhaven School for Boys, he knew he was signing up for four years of sexual frustration. No one was gay at Fordhaven. Gerard was all-too-aware that he would be a virgin until he graduated. In his senior year, though, this stupid gay freshman disproves Fordhaven's straightness, and throws Gerard's entire world off-kilter. Now, in between drawing, avoiding bullies, running an incredibly serious tabletop RP game, failing out of math, and hanging out with friends, Gerard is also busy kind of falling for this asshole who's way too young for him. It's not what he planned on, but it's what's happening. In conclusion: high school sucks.

straight up - Trojie - Bandom
Ray will one day blame years of the kind of friendship that involves one person opening the other person up to a host of new, exciting life experiences they wouldn't otherwise have got, and the second person in return spending a lot of time hovering in the ED trying to remember the street names of colourful pills, for what happens after he walks in on Gerard in their hotel room.

"fire alarms (and losing you)"
girlpearl's FOB fic. "Patrick, for reasons that Pete's never had the courage to explore, has a little biological quirk that means once every month or so, he experiences a profound and undeniable need for sex. It's not a problem at first--he has a girlfriend at home, and when they're on the road, he and Pete have a casual, no-strings-attached gentlemen's agreement, and everything's working out great.

Then Patrick breaks up with his girlfriend. Lines get blurred, Pete is forced to confront some uncomfortable truths, and everything teeters on the brink of falling apart."

All That Shit Seems To Disappear When I'm With You - gala_apples - Bandom
Frank’s been attracted to Mikey for awhile, a feeling that he’s kept carefully to himself. Other people don’t have the same compulsion for secrecy. On the first day of school there’s a short angry boy standing at Frank’s locker, condemning him for making Pete’s life hard. September quickly turns into a month of bad decision making as Frank, Pete, and Patrick deal with Mikey not feeling the same way they do. Except, that’s not true. After all, none of them have actually asked Mikey his side of things.

Rock and Roll Never Looked so Beautiful - corruptedkid - My Chemical Romance
Gerard Way is a rising solo artist, set to become the next big thing in the alternative scene. Frank Iero is a trashy punk with a reputation of his own as the frontman of Pencey Prep. When their paths cross, a love story is born, only to come crashing down when Gerard hits it big.
As Gerard ascends to the A-list, Frank adjusts to life on his own. He almost manages it - until two years later, when fate puts him face to face with Gerard once more. Everything has changed, but the connection between them is still there. Their story has ended once before, but if they're lucky, they just might make a new one.

Combinatorics - heyginger - Fall Out Boy
Patrick spends the Believers Never Die Part Deux tour secretly monitoring his growing crush on Joe. He has an equation that he uses to keep track of it--it’s complicated, but it involves boner-thoughts, hand-holding-thoughts, addition, subtraction, and division, which has to be at least 3/4ths of the elements needed for a serious mathematical calculation. He furtively plots the results in a spreadsheet, doesn’t really think about it the rest of the time, and everything is very normal and totally fine.
Obviously.
Then Joe announces his plan to try online dating, and that goes straight to hell.

The Fixed Stars of Heaven - corruptedkid, scarredsodeep - Fall Out Boy
His whole life, Patrick Stump dreamed of being up among the stars. Now he's commanding a 6-month mission aboard the International Space Station, crewed by Dr. Trohman, a strung-out botanist; Lieutenant Colonel Hurley, a meathead marine; and Captain Pete Wentz, an insubordinate pilot who's bent on taking heaven out of the stars and giving Patrick hell instead. Can they survive the brutal inhospitality of the vacuum of space, where the smallest equipment failure can mean instant death? And more importantly, can they survive each other?

Provenance - rageprufrock - Inception (2010)
Eleven years ago, Dom was new to Interpol and effusive with enthusiasm, and in the thrall of his own cleverness he'd met Mal during one of Arthur's ruthlessly thorough crash-course weekends.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot - laceymcbain - Inception (2010)
It's entirely possible Eames' traitorous heart has waited until precisely this kind of moment to blindside him. Arthur—beautiful, competent, untouchable Arthur—seems human and vulnerable stretched out on Eames' sofa beneath his grandmother's afghan, and Eames experiences a rush of feeling for Arthur so strong it stops him in his trainers. He fully expects to find skid marks when he looks down.

Arthur and Eames have always had an arrangement of sorts: Eames goes to Arthur when he's in trouble, and Arthur doesn't get in trouble. But when Arthur starts turning up at Eames' door with mysterious injuries everything changes.

Pants on Fire - Helenish - Inception (2010)
"Ah," Yusuf says, lifting a reproving hand, "are we calling less than 24 hours of memory loss amnesia now?"

"Look at you," Arthur says. He’s planning to say, look at what a fucking slut you are for me, you’re not coming until you beg for it, "Look at you," he says, hearing his voice soften. He leans down and presses a kiss to the center of Eames’ chest, one and then another and another, and then he shoves down the choking tide of anxiety in his throat, tells himself that at least he’s not a pussy like Eames and says, "anyone who ever made you beg was a fucking idiot."
"What—" Eames says.
"You don’t like it much," Arthur says.
"I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t like it,"

Idiot-Proof - Good_News_Everyone - Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)
‘Bartender’s motto,’ said Eggsy cheerfully. ‘Quickest way to a man’s heart is through his liver.'
In Harry’s line of work the quickest way to a man’s heart was usually between the ribs just left of his sternum, but he felt it would be impolitic to mention this just now.

Four drinks that Eggsy made for Harry and one Harry made for Eggsy.
