thesamefire: Gravity Cannot Reach Us
REC: The one where Gerard and Ray both get handsy when they're drunk. A lovely early days story that's warm and lazy and a little hazy and very physical. (2009-04-26)
QUOTE: "There you are," Ray says. His eyes are bright and his smile is wide and easy, and it's clear to Gerard that Ray is just as drunk as he is, but having a way better time of it.
Gerard smiles and leans in to slump against Ray's shoulder even as he's saying, "Hey, how's it going." The words come out slurred but Ray doesn't seem to mind, he just puts his arm around Gerard, his hand sliding along Gerard's waist to end up edging under the bottom hem of his t-shirt. His fingers are spread slightly and his palm is warm against Gerard's skin, like a single bright point anchoring him in his body even when his mind is fuzzy enough that he feels like he could float away easily enough if he just let go.
Gerard curls into him more and puts his hand on Ray's leg, by his knee at first but then he slowly starts sliding it up. He has no idea where he's getting this sudden burst of confidence, but he keeps going, a little giddy with his own daring. He stops when his hand gets to the top of Ray's thigh, over the pocket of his jeans, and he looks up at Ray, like he's asking if it's okay. He's not sure why he does it - he's never been in the habit of asking to touch his friends, not when he's drunk and especially not when it's Ray, who always just smiles easily at him and touches him back, his hand on Gerard's shoulder or arm or hip. But something about it now just feels different somehow, maybe because he's doing it on purpose and maybe because of how he's doing it, and it's suddenly desperately important that Gerard make sure that the things are still okay.
The way Ray is looking back at him... he looks strangely intense, almost like he's really *looking* at Gerard for the first time. Gerard is uncomfortable with the scrutiny at first, and he's about to look away when Ray licks his lips, his tongue darting out quickly, and Gerard suddenly can't move. Ray's lips are wet now, and the low light in the room around them makes them look soft and inviting. (4,450 words)

ficsoreal: Idiopathic
REC: The one where Gerard grows horns and a tail. It's a little silly and emotionally OTT but it's worth it all for the scene in part two where Gerard is looking in his closet for something to put on. Gerard's expressive tail FTW! (2009-04-25)
QUOTE: Setting the chart on a small side table, Dr. Canton stood up. "I'd like to examine your scalp for lesions. Okay?"
Gerard nodded reluctantly and sat tense and silent as the older doctor carefully ran his hands over his skull and sectioned his hair. It seemed like an inordinately long time passed before the gentle hands dropped from his head. Gerard waited for him to speak.
"How long have you known?"
Gerard said, "I don't know."
Dr. Canton sighed. "Have you been having any other unusual pains or bleeding?"
Gerard whispered, "My lower back has been sore."
Dr. Canton nodded absently, reaching for his chart, looking as lost as Gerard felt. He made a note before straightening his shoulders and raising his head. "It seems we have our work cut out for is. A true medical mystery. Mr. Way, you are about to be put through a battery of tests so extensive that we will know the health problems of your future grandchildren."
A knock sounded at the door and a flustered nurse stuck her head around the corner. "Mr. Way's brother is here to see him."
"Send him in." Dr. Canton made his way to the door but paused before exiting. "Several people will be dropping by to draw more blood for various tests and to take you for an MRI, bone testing, X-rays, and so on."
Gerard shuddered when the door closed. Needles. Maybe they could knock him out for that part. (12,760 words)

strobelighted: Snow Kisses
REC: Snow and kisses and blowjobs. A cute and sweet little domestic fic. (2009-04-25)
QUOTE: Frank tries halfheartedly to defend himself but Gerard manages to get him pinned down. This is partly due to the fact that Gerard is slightly bigger and heavier than Frank and partly to the fact that Frank is still laughing too hard to put up much of a fight. He quiets down after a bit though and looks up at Gerard grinning. "You could have just told me to shut up," says Gerard. "Nah," says Frank, grinning even wider. "Where's the fun in that? Besides, that never works." Gerard opens his mouth to say something, but changes his mind at the last second and instead grabs a handful of snow and rubs it all over Frank's face. Frank splutters and flails ineffectually. When he's finally blinked the snow out of his eyes, Gerard is above him, smirking. (1,480 words)

REC: The bus breaks down in Shitville Motherfuckwherever. Lighthearted banter and threesome cuddles. (2009-04-25)
QUOTE: He taps his fingers against his thigh, considering the implications of mind reading as Bob scowls at the cot with a visibly buckled leg and Ray attempts to open the connecting door to the next room. "I'd let you all read my mind." "You'd assume we'd want to," Bob says, and gives up frowning at the cot, turning his attention to Gerard instead. "I like my mind unscarred." "Hey," Gerard protests, because really, the way Bob's talking it's like Gerard's some kind of freak. (998 words)

QUOTE: "Your mama still coming to visit?" Bert says. He's breathing slowly and his t-shirt is hitched up to his chest, exposing his stomach and matted trail of hair. His pants and boxers are kicked into the corner and he's wearing black socks, the heels threadbare, both with holes in the toes. "Yeah," Gerard says. He scratches at his arm, nails digging into his skin. "Sometime tomorrow, who the fuck knows." (322 words)

turps: untitled fic (Tints 'verse)
REC: A lovely little snippet in the Tints 'verse. I love the juxtaposition of light and dark in this universe, the way gardening and flowers is used as a kind of symbol for hope and possibilities. (2009-04-25)
QUOTE: Ray thinks about the plans for this garden, the sheer amount of work that needs doing before they can even think about new plants. "You can take over on the flowerbed, it looks like there's healthy growth under there. Just..." He hesitates then and itches at his neck, hating this part of the job. "I don't mind you bringing Mikey, it's just, I need you to work, this is a big job and..."
"I know," Frank says, interrupting, his lingering smile fading. He pushes his sunglasses to the top of his head, the pink plastic frames clashing with his hair. "Gee had a bad night, Mikey needed a break."
Bob looks up sharply. "They okay?" (564 words)

QUOTE: The rails wobble slightly as Bob sits, his legs dangling over the side of the ferry. He's wearing tan boots and the black laces trail toward the water, one side longer than the other. The toes of his boots turn dark with the splash of the waves. "We're running out of water." Gerard's arms are crossed on the rails, rust flaking against his skin. He's got his cheek resting against his forearm and his lips are gritty with salt, he licks across them, looks down at Bob's feet next to his own. "How long?" "Enough for a day, maybe less." It's what Gerard expected. (709 words)

Except this is a fucking *xylophone* and they don't do emphasis, all they do is a stupid ringing note that seem to go on and on and on. "You get to drum and I get *this*." "There's only room for one kit," Bob says, obviously not caring about Spencer's xylophone induced pain. (520 words)

idyll: Heavy Connection
REC: Crossover with SGA in which Bob meets Ronon in an emergency room. I love crossovers so I've got no idea how I've managed to miss this one. It's lovely, quietly funny and a little bittersweet and I really like this Bob. (2009-04-25)
QUOTE: Bob meets Ronon in an emergency room in Colorado. That fact... yeah, says something about the both of them when you consider that it was a tragic accident involving a sander, some duct tape, and one of Gerard's shoes that landed Bob there, while Ronon was *hit by a fucking bus* and is *still conscious*. "It was a little one," Ronon clarifies. "That is seriously hardcore," Bob says, sounding no less awed than he did the first time he said those same words, because, come on, *a bus*. All Bob did was sheer many layers of skin from his forearm. With a sander. He feels so lame in comparison. (1,560 words)

REC: Bob has another accident and gets to meet the in-laws, a sequel to 'Heavy Connection'. Just as lovely as the first one. I really like how their relationship is written, the quiet strength of it. (2009-04-25)
QUOTE: Somewhere around the sixth time Bob is woken up to answer questions about the date and the country he's in, he's not met with a stern-faced nurse but with Ronon. Bob's groggy and sort of convinced he's imagining Ronon, but he goes with it. "Hey." "Who am I?" "Ronon." "Where are you?" Bob's lips twitch, because, seriously. On a good day he can't keep track of where they are when they're on tour, and this isn't a good day. He hasn't been able to give anyone a straight answer on that, despite the fact that he thinks Ray actually coached him on the right answer the second time he was woken up. "Fuck if I know. A hospital in Europe." (2,360 words)

REC: What if Frank went to Japan after Pencey folded and became a huge J-rock star? Cute and funny and totally adorable not!fic with accompanying art. I love the one of Frank as a J-rock star, his outfit is wonderfully flamboyant and outrageous while still being so discernibly FRANK. And the one of Frank & Gerard in the noodle house is too cute.

He and Gerard meet during Summer Sonic '05 when Frank is at the highest point of his career (and stiletto combat boots) and Gerard is at the highest point of his final bender.

earlofcardigans: My Chemical Romance loves Patrick
REC: What the title says. A series of tiny vignettes. Very sweet, and I'm totally imagining these leading to future MCR/Patrick orgies :-) (2009-04-19)
QUOTE: Gerard laughs awkwardly and pretends to reach for something so he can scoot closer to Patrick. "Well it's a good thing you know how to punch people. I mean, so Pete will leave you alone. Or whatever." Gerard mentally slaps himself in the face. He's so stupid. Really. He just sort of wants to kiss the smile off Patrick's face and doesn't quite have the courage yet. "Oh yeah, and Bob's been like, coaching me. I'll show you later." 'Bob is going down,' Gerard thinks. (937 words)

sinsense: untitled fic
REC: The one where Gerard crossdresses and has sex with Brian in a hotel bathroom. This is insanely hot and I love the way Brian takes Gerard apart and puts him together again a little more whole than he was. (2009-04-05)
QUOTE: Brian taps on the door gently, and Gerard turns and opens it just a little. "I don't think my dress looks right," he whispers, feeling incredibly silly.
"I bet it looks fine," Brian whispers back, and pushes against the door. "Let me in." Gerard steps back slowly, biting his lip. Brian takes his time, taking in the tank dress, the stockings, the kitten heels that match the beading on the hem of the dress and the beads in his necklace.
"I look like a boy in a dress," Gerard says in a rush, breaking the silence. He looks down at his toes and tucks his hair behind his ears.
"You," Brian says. Gerard waits for more, but Brian just shoves the door wider and backs Gerard into the sink. Brian has to stand on his toes a little to kiss Gerard in his heels, but he shoves his tongue in Gerard's mouth like he's ten inches taller. "You look like a lady," he says, after he's thoroughly messed up Gerard's lipstick, "what the hell are you doing with a guy like me?"
"I don't look like a lady," Gerard says, tipping his head down and letting his hair fall in his face. Brian smoothes it back for him, smiling. "Not, like. Not to myself."
"But you should," Brian says. He puts his hands on Gerard's hips and turns him around, facing him towards the mirror. "You're so pale, like you've never had to go out in the sun," he starts, and when Gerard snorts, he makes a shushing sound. "Your skin is really delicate," he says, touching at Gerard's collarbones and trailing his fingers down to the collar of the dress. "It's beautiful." (1,420 words)

kitsune_tsuki: As Good as It Gets
REC: The bodyguard AU. I've got a hard time imagining Gerard as a bodyguard but I enjoyed this anyway, it's entertaining and cute with some good action scenes. (2009-04-05)
QUOTE: "There's one more thing," Brian says, cutting Gerard off. "You might run into resistance. Iero's not the one hiring you two." Gerard stares at Brian, not quite understanding for a moment. "What do you mean -" Mikey fiddles with the sleeves of his coat and Gerard makes a pained noise when realization hits. "Fucking hell, Brian. Not another one." Brian shrugs and manages to look genuinely apologetic. "His business partner has a vested interest in keeping him alive," Brian pauses, eyes darting around the room. "And there's the fact that she was engaged to him at one point, so." Gerard sighs and rubs a hand over his face, wishing like hell he hadn't answered his goddamned phone that morning. "Just so you know," he says, "there's not enough fucking money in the world to make this worth my while." (23,080 words)

clumsygyrl & lovelypoet: Exceptional
REC: The one where the fans gives Frank sex toys and Gerard & Bob get to share. I have no idea why I haven't read this before, this is my OT3 in this fandom. It might be self-indulgent, quickly written, happy, fluffy, scorchingly hot porn, but it also has nice character dynamics. I liked the contrast between the friendly and slightly silly way Frank and Gerard got together and the more serious and thoughtful tone when Bob is added. (2009-04-05)
QUOTE: Someone leaks the fact that Frank wants lube and soon the donation box is full of toys *and* bottles of Wet and other assorted lubricants. Frank makes a triumphant arm wave and does a little dance when Brian dumps the first box full onto the bus. "Set for life!" "Wait. I just realized... am I going to have to declare this stuff on my taxes?" Individually each gift isn't much, but he's probably gotten a few thousand dollars worth gifted to him over the few weeks. Brian has to actually call the accountants on that one. (12,870 words)

QUOTE: Frank's just dug his fork into a container of rice, and he's looking more at that than anything Gerard's doing, so it comes as a surprise when the chair scrapes again and Gerard disappears. Frank drops his fork. "Gee?" And then he feels a hand on his knee and he looks under the table. "What are you doing?" "What's it look like, asshole?" "What, now?" "Indian's better than a blowjob?" Frank starts to sigh, to answer, to argue that he's hungry, that they haven't eaten in a good 12 hours, and there's been a lot of acrobatic sex in between, but he doesn't get further into his diatribe than half a sigh before Gerard's licking the inside of Frank's thigh, broad strokes that go from thigh to sliding over the head of Frank's cock.

fiddleyoumust: I Just Want Your Extra Time (and Your... Kiss)
REC: Romantic comedy AU inspired by the movie 'Never Been Kissed' that I (of course ;-) haven't seen. It's entertaining in a fluffy way and I quite liked the way Frank and Spencer were written. (2009-04-05)
QUOTE: Frank's fifteen minutes late to lunch due to a near-disaster in the break room with a broken coffee pot; thankfully, there was a spare under the sink area, so Frank won't have to kill anyone after all. "Fucking Wentz needs to lay off the prescription medication and stay away from my coffee maker," Frank says bitchily as he sits down, clutching his coffee cup the way a mother might cling to her baby. Spencer nods and bites into his lettuce wrap with a grimace. Patrick is sitting next to him eating a small bag of Cheetos; he raises his eyebrow at Frank and then turns to Spencer and says, "Why do you eat that stuff?" "It's good for you," Spencer says, using his hand to cover his mouth so he can talk around his food. (12,770 words)

REC: Pretty much what the title says. I giggled my way through this fic, so much fun. This Frank is totally adorable. (2009-04-05)
QUOTE: Frank secretly thought Gerard's smile should be kind of illegal, because it did pleasant, uncomfortable, twisty things to his insides. Well, maybe not illegal, but restricted. Specifically, restricted to Frank. "And you haven't made a move," Andy continued, ticking points off on his fingers for emphasis. "You barely ever talk to the kid. You make eye contact *maybe* once a month. Hell, you're almost as awkward as he is. So not only are you staying here because you want to bone a cashier, you're staying here because you want to bone a cashier *you never speak to*." Frank laid his head back on the table. "Life sucks," he said again. Andy snorted. "Dude, try being a vegan butcher for a day, *then* tell me life sucks." (8,710 words)

framianne: Fireflies
REC: Frank and Brian the summer after high school. This is an absolutely lovely little AU. The way the writing flows from paragraph to paragraph, each one distinct but also part of the whole, quiet and lyrical. The slightly distant pov adds to the feeling that, though it's in present tense, it's still something that happened years ago. (2009-04-05)
QUOTE: The first time they kiss it's at night, and they're sitting on the windowsill of Frank's room, watching the fireflies in the garden below. They're slightly drunk on beer and high on a shared joint, and Frank's mouth tastes sweet when Brian opens it with his tongue, slow and tentative. They don't know what the fuck they're doing, but that's not going to stop them. High school is over and they feel like the world is in their hands, even if the world is made only of shows and shitty bands that sound fucking amazing to them and long trips in smelly, uncomfortable vans with other smelly guys uncomfortably piled on each other.
