fleurdeliser & theopteryx: Strange Steps
REC: I liked this. It's got great Gerard and Frank characterisations and it's always nice to see a high school AU that's neither horribly angsty nor complete fluff. And I loved and adored the awesome old ladies in the dancing class and how they acted with Gerard. (2010-06-27)
QUOTE: After the next dance they switched again. Mrs. Wembley, this time. She had a voice like she'd been smoking since her teens (she had) and hands like she'd been working all her life (that too). If Gerard had to pick any old lady to be on his side in a fight (he wouldn't want his grandma, hopefully she would be watching proudly and safely from the sidelines, perhaps waving a white hanky while Mikey patted her arm supportingly, that'd be pretty awesome) it'd be Mrs. Wembley.
"Hello, sir!" Mrs. Wembley rasped, "I hear we're cutting your hair with kitchen scissors later."
Gerard groaned. "You heard? We're only two songs in. I swear you guys have old lady ESP or something."
"We're like fuckin' vultures, son, we smell an opportunity to flock and we're all over your shit. I'm good at hair, though. Had to do my husband's hair for him when he got back from the war, you know, couldn't lift his arms too high. I'll make you a looker."
"I don't think even your powers of hair could make me into a looker, Mrs. Wembley."
"Nonsense!" she said, gripping his hands a little tighter, "I know it when I see it - you just gotta hold your head up high enough for other people to see it too."
Gerard flushed a little but stayed quiet. Old people thinking you were cute really didn't count, especially when one of them was your grandma, but it was better than nothing. Even though they were pretty much out of his age range. And preferred sex. So pretty much all of it. (33,160 words)

tabula_x_rasa: Show Me the Little Bit of Spine
REC: Frank wants Gerard to dance with him at the prom. A cute little highschool AU ficlet. (2010-03-21)
QUOTE: "Gerard," Frank said. "Come on. We've had to hide who are for-fucking-ever, had to hide that we've been going out for two years, and it's prom and we're almost out of high school *forever* and we'll never have to see these douchenozzles ever again. Can you really think of a better 'fuck you' than this?" It was a good point, and while Gerard certainly wouldn't consider dancing with anyone *else*, he wasn't sure he wanted to dance with Frank if it was - oh God, Gerard couldn't believe he was going to admit this even to *himself* - if it was just a protest thing. He was such a loser. (473 words)

lady_deathangel: Trust Me, I'm Not
REC: A high school AU about what might have happened after the I'm Not Okay video. This is an absolutely fantastic story about growing up and changes and being different and daring to think and do the impossible. Wonderful! (2010-01-17)
QUOTE: Gerard shoved himself away from the toilet and sat with his back against the stall wall, panting for breath and fighting the urge to throw up. He fucking hated swirlies, but they beat a fat lip or a cracked rib any day.
"I know you're not really that much of a pussy."
Gerard looked up to see Brian frowning down at him, arms crossed over his chest. He looked pissed, but that couldn't be Gerard's fault. All he was doing was breathing.
"Seriously," Brian continued, leaning against the stall's post and shaking his head, "I saw what you and your friends did to half the varsity team. That takes balls. So what happened? Did they shrivel up and fall off over the weekend or what?"
"Do you ever shut up?" Gerard demanded, glaring at Brian from beneath his sopping wet bangs.
Brian pointedly pressed his lips closed and looked at Gerard expectantly. Gerard sighed and let his head fall back with a thunk.
"It was my moment of glory," he said dramatically. "But it didn't change shit."
"Only because you didn't let it change shit," Brian countered. "Go at 'em with a croquet bat again and see what happens."
Gerard was pretty sure it would be more of the same, but he entertained the thought anyway. He really wouldn't mind bashing a few heads in. He could probably do an even better job this time.
"Wait," Gerard said, pulling himself out of the fantasy. "Croquet *bat*?"
Brian shrugged. "I don't know what the fuck it's called," he said, turning to walk away. "I'm not a chicken shit loser, remember?"
He walked out without another word. (9,170 words)

bexless: This Never Happened
REC: Adorably funny and hot and enjoyably OTT high school AU not!fic which totally proves that the epic love story of teenaged!Frank-and-Gerard is best expressed through smilies :-) (2008-11-02)
QUOTE: Frank is standing there like :OOOOOOOO because Mikey did not TELL HIM that his brother would be CROSS-DRESSING, which Frank is FINE WITH because he is OPEN MINDED and NON-JUDGEMENTAL and has MAYBE PUT ON MAKE-UP IN THE PRIVACY OF HIS OWN ROOM HIMSELF, but it is just that he would have liked to have been WARNED ABOUT IT. Gerard is going DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD: because there is a STRANGE BOY IN THE BEDROOM AND GERARD IS NOT WEARING A SHIRT. He doesn't care who sees him in the skirt and heels, but he would prefer not to meet new people when he is TOPLESS, MIKEY, GOD. Mikey is going :||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||| because he totally TOLD GERARD FRANK WAS COMING [...] (28,620 words)

arsenicjade: The Boys and Girls in the Clique
REC: Awesomely sweet and funny highschool AU and it's Arsenic so of course there's also great storytelling and characterisation. (2007-11-04)
QUOTE: He was about to leave when Frank caught up to him, and said, "Whoa, hey, going somewhere?" "Same place I go every day, Pinky," Gerard muttered. This was not good. If Frank kept talking to him, Gerard would stay and eat the crap this school passed off as food. Most of the people at this school annoyed the hell out of Gerard, but Frank Iero was at the top of that list, mostly for being the kind of asshole who had only been his little brother Mikey's friend for *forever* and then suddenly, and without warning, had gotten hot. Shit like that was unacceptable, and it was not in Gerard's nature to be forgiving, or so he liked to believe. "Take me with you? Pleasepleaseplease -" (14,410 words)
