thingswithwings: little by little
Carol can't help it; she breaks out laughing, and as she does Janet smiles at her, smiles down at her, which is both bizarrely familiar and completely new. Carol buries her face in her hands and laughs and laughs until she feels Janet's hands around her, warm and careful, cupping her loosely, the way she might hold a butterfly. (6,300 words)

annemari: Find Out Your Hiding Places Again
REC: Gerard doesn't think he's lost enough blood to start hallucinating. The one where Gerard and Mikey have become superheroes on different sides. I love how lowkey this was. Just two brothers finally talking after having drifted apart. annemari write such lovely Way brothers interaction. (2013-11-03)
QUOTE: Gerard doesn't think he's lost enough blood to start hallucinating.
"Shit," Mikey says. "Shit, Gee, what the fuck?"
"How?" Gerard asks. "How do you - how did I - ow, fuck, motherfucker."
"Stop moving," Mikey says. "Okay, now get up, we have to go."
"That's a contradiction," Gerard says, and lets Mikey pull him up. His side is bleeding, and it really hurts like a motherfucker, but his costume absorbed some of the impact and helped keep the worst damage at bay.
"But -" Gerard wheezes, leaning heavily on Mikey. "What the fuck are you doing here?"
"What are *you* doing here?"
"I asked you first. Ow."
"Easy," Mikey says. "Shit, we need to get you to the hospital."
"I'm fine," Gerard says automatically. He stumbles, and groans when the wound throbs. Fucking ow. "Okay, never mind. A hospital sounds really good."
There's a blast to their right and Mikey curses and pulls them to cover behind a shelf. "Can't you tell your guys to fucking back off?"
Gerard rests his head against the shelf, panting. "Hey," he says. "We. We didn't start this."
Mikey doesn't reply; he pulls Gerard up again and they keep moving. Gerard follows him blindly; he pushed his mask up when he got hit and the enemy ran up to him. Except the enemy turned out to be *Mikey*. (2,730 words)

xojemmaxo: Frank the Botanist!
REC: This is totally adorable. Frank can talk to plants and Mikey has his own superpower too and I love the bright, happy colours of the art and how happy they look together. (2012-08-26)
QUOTE: Frank kept the talking to plants thing a secret until he knew he could TRUST Mikey, you know? Because it is kind of a weird superpower or whatever and Mikey's totally into that kind of thing but Frank's still not totally SURE until one day when they're out having dinner at like a sushi bar (Mikey's choice) and Mikey say all casually, "Oh by the way, I can change the weather with my mind." And Frank's like WOAH and he doesn't actually believe him at first but after Mikey takes him outside and like, sweeps all the clouds out of the sky with a movement of his arm, and he's like a JEDI.

gorgeousnerd: Crush My Soul (And Send Me Flowers)
REC: After his nasty breakup with Gerard, Bob leaves the superhero business and gets a mundane job. One day Gerard shows up at his door. This was a really sweet story and refreshingly lowkey and drama free for a superhero story. (Okay, I might have issues with superheroes ;-) I really liked this Bob and it was so sad to see him just going through the motions of living. Even if Gerard's visit hadn't changed anything for Gerard it would still have been a good thing because of how it affected Bob. I also really liked that it was Bob's practical, hands-on approach that made a difference in the end. (2012-03-11)
QUOTE: "I've got Gerard on my couch," Bob says. He clears his throat. "Is everything... I mean..."
"He is? Really?"
Bob slumps onto his bed. "Tell me about it."
"The group's on break right now," Ray says, and his voice is warmer now, friendlier. "Last Mikey heard, Gerard was out in California, playing in the desert."
That sounds like Gerard. "I'm nowhere near the desert."
"Yeah, I figured. What did he say?"
"Nothing. He just... sat on my couch."
"Huh. Maybe he just wanted to see you?"
There's something a little funny in Ray's voice, but whatever. Bob's not going to alienate him. Not when he could - and probably should - be asking Gerard all of this. "Maybe."
Ray sighs. "Do me a favor?"
"Just don't... don't be an asshole to him." Bob's just summoning breath to tell Ray what bullshit that is when Ray says, "Not unless he does something first, at least? Maybe give him a chance."
A chance is way more than Gerard deserves. But Bob isn't sprouting fur or claws or growling. He's just tired, mostly. So it doesn't cost him much to say, "Whatever."
"He's not great right now. If he slides back -" Ray cuts off the second he hears Bob's sharp intake of breath. "Not that it's your responsibility, I mean."
Bob might not have been in MCR for all of their tough spots, but he was there when Gerard got sober. He knows exactly what Ray's saying. But he lets go of the fist of comforter he'd grabbed, and he says, "It's not."
"But I'll keep an eye out."
"Cool." Ray pauses. "You can call me, you know. If you need to."
Bob nods to himself. "Thanks, man."
The line goes dead, and Bob stuffs his cell phone in his pocket.
In the living room, Gerard laughs at something obnoxious. Probably at the shitty reality show Bob left the TV on. He could go out and sit next to him, wait for Gerard to say something. Or he could go out and demand some kind of answer. There's no end of options.
Bob doesn't usually remember his dreams. He doesn't after he wakes up the next day, either. But there's an impression in his mind, a red haze and the echo of yelling and a feeling of helplessness he hasn't felt in years.
He gets dressed and cracks his bedroom door. Gerard's lying on the couch with the colors from the TV reflected on his face, drool pooling under his open mouth.
Bob sneaks out. (6,420 words)

halfeatenmoon: Chill out and learn to love your pussy
(Sailor Moon crossover.) MCR are charged with defending the universe from evil, which is pretty cool. They have to transform into women to do it, though, and that makes things complicated. As much fun as it is fighting monsters, they seem to spend as much time trying to figure out what this gender thing is about as they do saving the world. (12,600 words)

akamine_chan: When the Needle Spins
REC: Frank flies when he sleeps. A lovely little ficlet with great characterisations. (2011-12-04)
QUOTE: Frank sleeps, and flies.
The first time it happens he's just turned fourteen. He slowly wakes, stretches lazily and scrapes his arm on something rough as he tries to roll over. "What the -" His eyes spring open and he's paralyzed by fear because he's bumping gently against the ceiling, nose to textured plaster. There's a dizzying sense of vertigo as the world flips upside down and he's slowly drifting back to the sanity of his bed, gravity pulling him into its loving embrace.
He lays on his soft sheets, shivering in shock, wondering if he's still asleep, vividly dreaming. There's a series of sluggishly bleeding scratches on his elbow and faint bloodstains on the ceiling. He doesn't know what to think. (419 words)

mizubyte: Day of the Starship
REC: The Cobra's escaped, Pete & PATRICK need to recruit a team of teenagers with attitude, MCR is less than enthusiastic to risk their lives in colourful spandex. This Power Rangers fusion is so absurd and so much fun. (2011-09-04)
QUOTE: They turned around and blinked. The scene from the moon replayed - the astronauts prying open the door to the crashed starship, Gabe vaporizing them for their trouble. PATRICK gave them a few moments of silence after the scene ended to process, then clapped its hands together.
"So. Aliens are attacking the Earth. Who wants to be a Power Ranger?"
He got five blank faces. "A what?"
PATRICK sighed. Earthlings. "A Power Ranger. A defender of good. A fighter of evil."
Dark Hair brightened. "A superhero? Oh fucking awesome."
Two-Tone rolled his eyes. "Gee, this isn't a comic, superheroes aren't real. Aliens aren't real. The robot's talking nonsense." He stopped and shook his head. "I can't believe I just said that."
"Power Rangers draw strength from the Morphin Grid, which is a multidimensional energy source that underlays every dimension in this universe and..."
"What. The. Fuck."
PATRICK ignored them and continued. "Since we're on Earth, the power manifests in the form of ancient dinosaurs -"
"There's another kind?" Two-Tone muttered.
"- Tyrannasaurus, Pteradactly, Mastodon, Saber-Tooth Tiger and Triceratops."
"Um, you know that mastodons and saber-tooth tigers aren't dinosaurs, right?"
PATRICK scowled. For that, Two-Tone would get the pink coin. "Look, you point your morpher at the sky, call out the name of your dinosaur -" it stressed, glaring at Two-Tone, "and you'll morph." (15,970 words)

greedy_dancer: Don't Mean Too Much To Me
REC: Frank is immune to gravity. Such a sweet little ficlet. I love the way everyone is looking out for him. (2011-06-05)
QUOTE: It was really awkward the first time he tried to stage-dive. He dived. He just... didn't land. Gerard had to stall for 10 minutes with a speech about birds and flying after your dreams, while security and techs tried to lasso Frank back down with a cord. (265 words)

mcrnut: Of Love and Superpowers
REC: Frank is in his last year at Mutant High. A very sweet and happy-making high school AU with added mutant powers. I liked this Frank, it was so much fun watching his growing crush on Gerard and the way they slowly became friends and then something more. (2010-06-13)
QUOTE: Gerard usually doesn't come with them [...] but sometimes Mikey manages to drag him along. He doesn't say much, he mostly just sits in the back and makes everybody forget he's there. Frank studies him, allows himself to let his glances linger for longer than he thought he'd get away with. Gerard has a sharp profile, but his features are still soft, and his eyes are huge, deep hazel. He's pale too, his skin almost white against his raven hair and the contrast makes it hard to look away. Gerard sees him staring and clears his throat, looking wary, and a hand coming up to twist in a lock curling loosely up under his ear. Frank feels strange, and he looks back to the screen.
