sparrowsverse: When I Come Home
REC: Bob gets kicked out of the band, finds out he's a Time Lord, and discovers the reason he was kicked out. A cute little Doctor Who crossover that unfortunately suffers from some rather clunky writing at times. (2011-08-28)
QUOTE: Turning it over, he traced the carving with the pad of his fingertip.
'Open me.'
"FUCK!" Bob cursed as he dropped the watch. It landed on the carpet with a dull thud.
'Please? I'm tired of being in here.'
"What the hell?" Bob muttered as he cautiously poked the fob watch with his toe.
The voice sounded young, not quite a kid, but not quite an adult - an adolescent of some kind.
Bending over, Bob picked up the fob watch. Taking a deep breath, he pressed the clasp, and it popped open.
Frowning, he looked at it, turning it over in his hands. Inside, it had a normal face and hands, but it wasn't working.
'Tick, tick.'
Soft wispy orange light started to escape from the watch. Bob wanted to drop the watch and run, run far away. But he couldn't; it felt like the watch was moulding itself to his hand.
This, this was the change that had him running to go do teching.
Nothing would be the same after this fob watch finished whatever it was doing.
The light poured out faster and faster and started to engulf Bob. It invaded his skin and slinked its way into his nose, mouth and ears.
Bob started to moan as the pain became more apparent. It was nothing like he'd ever felt before. It was more pain than when he hurt his ankle, more than the burn on his leg, more than his wrists.
'Make it stop, make it stop, make it stop!'
Screams ripped from his throat; it felt like he was being rearranged from the inside out, and his head burned as though it were on fire. He welcomed the blackness that started to creep in around the edges of his eyes. It meant the pain was about to end.
'Thank you.'
Were the last words that Bob registered before he finally passed out, the watch clasped firmly in his hand as he fell face first into the carpet, unconscious. (18,930 words)

aneli8 & soundslikej: Your Pack Is What You Make It
REC: Bob finds out that Brian is a werewolf, things happen. A quiet and atmospheric story with nice characterisations and relationship dynamics. (2011-04-24)
QUOTE: "Bryar, what the fuck?" Brian asked, sounding more tired than pissed off. "Look, I get that you're mad I followed you," Bob said. "You have every right to be, and you can keep on doing that for as long as you want. But here." He pressed a Coke bottle into Brian's hand. "Just... look. I've been looking into this, okay? And this is... it should help." He held Brian's gaze and waited for him to wrap his fingers around the bottle. "A few sips, every full moon." He pulled back, let Brian go. "I'm sorry, all right?" he said. "Just... trust me." He turned and walked off before Brian could say anything. Radio silence, three days. On the third day, Bob was in their next venue, setting up for that night, and he heard familiar footsteps behind him. He didn't look up. "I'm not pissed at you," Brian said. (11,470 words)

gala_apples: Dreaming During Sleepless Nights
REC: Bob likes spending time with the Way brothers. A nice little early days story with some hot van sex. I liked this Bob voice. (2010-08-29)
QUOTE: One of the nights he falls asleep and wakes up to Gerard humming along with his cd player, the back seat dimly lit by the green glow of Mikey's tetris game, rock hard in his jeans. Which isn't that big of a deal, it's an unspoken rule that if you think you can jerk off without making enough noise to attract the attention of others you can go ahead. And while any noise is enough noise, there are some - Frank - that don't have a shred of shame in their body and do it regardless. So it's not that he couldn't. Gerard is sitting beside him and he's probably too into his music to notice, and Mikey, like Frank, is completely shameless and wouldn't care. It's that the awesome dream he had makes him equal parts horny and frustrated, and there's no point in jerking off when it's just going to make him mad. (2,190 words)

soundslikej: Eccentric Isolated Instances
REC: An early days story where Bob and Mikey gets accidentally mindmelded. I loved the warm and comfortable mood of this, and how completely ordinary it all was - Gerard's determinedly practical response in Chicago sort of setting the tone for how they all treated it. Even Frank with his million questions. Even the sex at the end felt the same way, like something warm and happymaking, both for Bob & Gerard and for Mikey. (2010-08-08)
QUOTE: "I figured," Bob said, and flinched. "I'm sorry, if it was... I don't know, there's probably some messed up stuff..." he trailed off and tapped his head lightly, not really knowing how to put voice to anything going on. He felt briefly amused, and for the first time recognized the way that it coincided with the twitch of Mikey's lips. "Oh," he said, and let his eyes drift over to Gerard, feeling that swell of emotion again, deeper than anything he had any right to be feeling. "Okay, this is *fucked up*."
"You're telling me," Mikey said, making a face. When Bob looked at him, he lifted a shoulder and said, "I was dreaming about you." He flicked a hand between Bob and Gerard, and his cheeks got redder. "You guys."
Gerard's eyes got bigger than Bob had ever thought possible. "Oh. Oh, that's." He looked at Mikey, who wasn't looking back. "*Mikey*."
"I didn't *mean* to," Mikey said, offended.
"Of course you didn't," Bob agreed. The embarrassment he felt got stronger as he scooted towards Mikey on the couch, but he also felt that the whole situation got a little more bearable when he could feel Mikey pressed up against him, his body relaxing a little.
Mikey sighed and let his head tip against Bob's shoulder. "What are we going to do?" he asked, finally looking at Gerard, and Bob felt his helplessness.
Gerard picked up Bob's list. "We're going to order food," he said, like it was the simplest thing in the universe. "We're going to order food, and then we're taking Bob back to Jersey with us."
Bob looked at him. "And then what?" he asked.
"Then?" Gerard shrugged. "Then, we'll see what happens." (5,590 words)

bellheim: Better
REC: The band broke up when Gerard got sober, this is where they are now and what happens when Bob comes to Jersey. I really like the characterisations in this story, they all feel very "real", and I totally love the way the different relationships are written and the way they grow and change. (2010-06-20)
QUOTE: "I should go," Frank says, flicking his cigarette butt into the weedy flowerbed. "Gerard's having a party." "Oh," Bob says, and he's quiet, almost too quiet. "There's like, three of us here," Frank says, and starts moving back to the house, squinting in the hallway light. [...] "And one of those is his brother." Bob laughs. "I can't wait to meet these friends of yours." "It's sad, really," Frank says, and ignores the way Gerard looks at him when he hangs up. "So," Gerard says, and his voice is a little tight, a little forced when he says it, but Frank doesn't mention it. (40,290 words)

coreopsis: Voice Work
REC: Gerard is a voice actor that does audiobooks too, Bob is hot sound guy. A hot and sweet and fluffy little pwp in which the reading of erotica leads to hot sex in the studio bathroom. (2010-04-18)
QUOTE: "Are you ready for this?" Bob says and leads Gerard back to the booth he'll be using. "Yeah, I'm ready," Gerard says but it comes out a little squeaky. He likes these jobs, but it takes him a while to get past the shyness and read about sex all day. As if reading about sex all day wasn't hard enough, he has to do it while Bob the hot sound guy watches and listens intently from where he sits behind his board. Brian the producer comes in, hands Gerard his script, replaces his coffee with water, and says, "This one is gay. That's not a problem, is it?" "No," Gerard squeaks. He clears his throat and says in a more normal tone, "Absolutely not a problem." (1,350 words)

QUOTE: Brian sighed. "You've been touring with these guys how long? And you haven't learned to let them handle their own barfights yet?" "Jepha's really good at starting fights," Bob said, "but he's shit at ending them." "Not your job to protect everybody," Brian told him, and Bob made a face. "What would you have done?" he asked, looking Brian over. "All two foot nothing of you." Brian pulled lightly at Bob's hair where his hand was still resting. "So not the point," he said.

mahoni: The Planets Align You Just Like Mars
REC: Bob and Mikey are forced to share a bed, set in the early days when Bob was doing sound for MCR. This was so sweet with just the right amount of seriousness to keep it from becoming totally saccharine. (2010-01-31)
QUOTE: "Too fucking cold to sleep in the van," Brian said. "So. Just. Share a bed with somebody." The beds were maybe a few inches wider than twin, from what Bob could tell. Gerard and Ray fit on one, Frank and Otter fit on one - barely. And the cot Brian and Mikey were going to share was even narrower. Bob would maybe fit on one of the beds, if all he had to share it with was a drum stick. Bob raised an eyebrow at Brian. Groaning, Brian said, "God, I'm too fucking wiped for this. Look -" he shoved off the cot and waved a hand at it. "Sleep here with Mikey. I'll..." (1,650 words)

delphinapterus: A Little Razzle Dazzle
REC: Before Bob went to Europe with them he had heard a lot about The Way Brothers from Brian. I really liked this, it was so wonderfully quirky and charming. (2010-01-24)
QUOTE: Bob shifted uncomfortably and wondered why he'd decided to let Brian talk him into doing sound for his new band when he could be huddled into his blankets and quietly fighting off his post-tour cold. Then he remembered that Brian was a persuasive motherfucker who'd shown up at his door with bribes, which was why Bob was standing there feeling chilly and wishing he'd popped another aspirin. Gerard let out a triumphant whoop and handed Mikey a tiny folded square of paper. Mikey stared at it as though he was willing it to do something. "Look, Gee made me a cup." Mikey told him holding out his hand. "Mine always get soggy." Resting in his palm was a small paper cup where Bob would have sworn there should only have been flat folded paper. (1,960 words)

QUOTE: "I know what you want, and I can't get it for you." It's the truth, Bob's tried, but his favours mean nothing and Fate is a bitch. Frank looks up, says, "So what? You're just going to stand there and say nothing?" "No," Bob says, and takes a step closer. He pulls Frank into a hug, holding him close. "Don't ever mention this again." "Showing your soft side, Bob?" Frank says, his breath hitching. He holds on, arms wrapped around Bob's waist, his hands against Bob's back, his fingers pressing into the feathers. For the first time in weeks the pain in Bob's back is eased. (2,200 words)

He stuffed them back under, and tucked his knees up to his chin, hugging them to him. "I'm going to steal like sixteen blankets from the next hotel we stop at." Bob nodded solemnly. "Nobody's room is safe," he agreed. "All their linens are belong to us." Gerard beamed and scooted closer to Bob. "Dude," he said. "I was mostly kidding, but if I've got *you* in on the plan, there's no way it can fail!" "No," Bob said, "no plans involving me ever fail." "Except for that time in Moscow," Brian reminded him from the front. "And Seattle. And Denver. Twice." (522 words)

QUOTE: People came and went all night - in and out of the venue, the connected bar, the hotel across the street, the whole tour rotating in and out of corners, booths, hotel rooms, stretches of curb. It was hours later - bottles later - when Bob saw Brian again, only briefly, only long enough for Brian's hand to land warm and familiar against his back as he leaned around him to watch Toro schooling some of the local guys in cards. "You win anything," he said, "I get a cut," and Toro's laugh was loud and ringing, even in the crowd. (1,230 words)

radioaches: Always Kinda Sorta
REC: Mikey asks Bob to do sound for them when they tour Europe, Bob says yes. I really like early-days stories, particularly the ones that include Bob and this was a very nice one. I loved the way Bob was written and how the growing relationship between him and Mikey was handled. (2010-01-03)
QUOTE: [T]he road is empty, so it's easy to concentrate enough on driving and still be able to talk quietly to Mikey over the sounds of sleep-heavy breathing coming from the back. The conversation twists and turns, and they mostly just shoot the shit about nothing important, keeping each other company while everybody else sleeps, but as they come to a halt at some traffic lights and wait for them to turn green again, Bob can feel Mikey looking at him. They're both quiet for a few seconds then, and then Mikey says, "Hey, thanks for coming out with us. I know you didn't have to, so like, it's really cool. I'm - we're all glad you came with us."

QUOTE: He thought about how easy it would be to nip downstairs and out the back door to bum a cigarette off the hot smoking guy. But before he could commit to the self-defeating move, Hot Smoking Guy stubbed out his cigarette and dropped the butt into a little trashcan by the door. Then he was gone and Bob was once again committed to quitting. He put the guy out of his mind and want back to work. This continued on for a while. Bob would be in the break room to grab a drink or eat lunch and, without putting any conscious thought into it, he'd find himself standing by the window, looking out onto the alley below.

idyll: Liang Yi
REC: Bob and Gerard and makeup back in the early days. A beautiful and thought provoking little ficlet. (2009-08-23)
QUOTE: The mascara is the hardest part. Gerard gives shitty instructions that consist of, "Droop your lids, like they're heavy and you're sad," and "Not that sad, asshole," and "Okay, like, think of that heroin junkie we saw last night? Do that with your eyes." Mostly Bob just stares at him blankly and Gerard grumbles but works around what he apparently sees as Bob's total and complete incompetence at following simple directions.
Eventually, after what feels like a damn eternity, Gerard leans back, squints and tilts his head, then nods. "Fuck. Yeah. I knew - yeah." He pushes off of Bob's lap and manages to stay on his feet when he stumbles. "Go look. Check it out. Fucking awesome."
The room wavers in Bob's peripheral vision when he makes his way to the bathroom. He turns on the lights, blinks against the sudden brightness, and his eyes feel odd, his lashes heavy. It takes him a moment to focus on his reflection in the mirror over the sink, and when he does he thinks that he needed to either be a) more drunk, or b) less drunk, to deal with what he sees.

QUOTE: "Hey."
Bob turned around, awkwardly leaning away from the console with his chin angled over his shoulder. Long legs encased in worn black pants shifted in his sight, bending until Bob realized the singer for My Chemical Romance was squatting next to him. The guy - Jerry? No, something French... *Gerard* - rested his hand near Bob's on the console. Bob leaned forward, shifting his balance to his other hand so he wasn't half-turned away.
"Yeah?" Bob asked. "You need something?"
Gerard shrugged one shoulder, and a grin trembled over his mouth before disappearing. Bob raised his hand and dropped it again. For some reason, he had the urge to push the corners of Gerard's mouth back up. He looked better smiling.
"So... I was talking to Bert, right?" Gerard began, licking his lips and ruffling the already angled mess of his black hair. "And Bert said it'd be all right if you stood in for our sound guy for the next show? ‘Cause Tim - you remember Tim?" (684 words)

"Fuck *you*," Bob called from the bedroom. Gerard grinned at his reflection and went on to the kitchen. He got one of the bowls that he and Bob had purchased - Bob's kitchenware consisted mostly of things he'd stolen from his mother or things people had brought food in for parties and then left at his place; Gerard had to convince him to get an actual dinner set because that was a *thing*. A grown-up coupley thing that he felt like he'd been waiting his whole life for - out of the cabinet, and the ice cream from the freezer. Chocolate chip this week. Theoretically, they were alternating weeks for ice cream choice, but Bob mysteriously ended up buying the kinds Gerard liked best every time he went shopping, putting it in the fridge with a grumbled 'Forgot whose week it was' once he was home.
Gerard filled the bowl, because Bob would just steal bites from him anyway, and there might as well be enough for both of them. No one liked getting out of bed more than once.
He was heading down the hall when he heard a quiet knock on the front door. The clock on the DVD player said 12:05, so it was most likely Mr. Walker from the end of the hall. His cats had a tendency to get out at the oddest times, and Bob was secretly a huge teddy bear and would always help him go round them up again.
Gerard wrapped his robe a little tighter around himself and walked over to the front door, toes curling a little when the carpet gave way to cool tile in the entranceway. He would just have to tell Mr. Walker that Bob was 'indisposed' at the moment. Better luck next time, or whatever, but when Gerard opened the door, it wasn't Mr. Walker.
He felt a little bit like he was underwater. He hardly heard the bowl hit the floor - it might have shattered, but he couldn't be sure - and Bob's concerned "Gee? What the fuck did you do?" sounded farther away than it possibly could be inside the apartment. Tile was rough on the knees, but even though he hit it hard, he barely felt more than a vague sting. It was automatic, instinctive, constant in a way that he might not have thought of in months but had never forgotten.
Brian's hand was warm against his cheek and his smile was everything Gerard could remember wanting so desperately. "Have you been a good boy while I was away?" (4,830 words)

saekokato: Perhaps Vampire is a Bit Strong But...
REC: Bob does a good deed and is punished. With vampires, prophecy-spouting peacocks, and Pete Wentz, his life is hard enough without having to deal with Frank Iero and his band of misfits. A really good Buffy fusion, full of friendship and snark, excellent characterisations, and wonderful dialogue. I love this Bob, he's so awesomely grumpy and sarcastic and his friendship with Brian is handled so well. (2009-06-21)
QUOTE: "You think we're going to let you fight?" Pete scoffs. "You don't know shit about shit." "Well, scrawny, just how do you think you're going to stop us?" Bob demands. Joe snaps his fingers, and there's a flash, an only mildly deafening boom, some sparks, and some smoke. All four of them are watching Bob and Brian, who both stare back, largely unaffected. [...] "Really? Really? Really now. I manage shit bands for a living," Brian sighs. "I've seen, heard, and smelt worse in a belching contest." (43,970 words)

carleton97 & rue_quercus: Clouds Across the Moon
REC: Bob had heard that MCR's rhythm guitarist was small, hyper, and insane on the guitar but no one had mentioned anything about him being a vampire. A great story about Bob's early history with MCR in an urban fantasy setting. I really liked this Bob, and this Frank even more, their supernatural natures blended so well with their personalities and the way they interacted and their slow dance around each other felt so right. Though I did get a bit irritated at Bob at one point, he's such a thickheaded, oblivious GUY! (2009-06-21)
QUOTE: Holding his arms out to the side in the universal gesture for 'I'm harmless', the vampire said, "You can stop pissing yourself, dude. I'm a vegan." "A vegan... *vampire*?" Bob asked. "How the fuck does that work?" "Simple," Frank said, smiling widely without showing the slightest hint of fang. "I don't drink blood." "You don't drink blood. Really," Bob said, not believing him for a second. (34,340 words)
