Worth a Thousand Words
He had heard Adam coming up behind him and for a split second Andrew had considered closing the copy of Playboy and shoving it under his paper, an impulse so foolish it was a perfect illustration of Adam’s power to reduce him to a smitten schoolboy. Adam’s frank blue eyes had honed in on the page instantly, and his smile changed. His expression was suddenly a copy of the one he had worn when they first met, when Andrew had offered to buy Adam a drink after watching him sing on the club’s small, smoky stage. Adam had turned quickly and his eyes had widened comically when he had to look up, obviously not used to men inches taller than his own six foot frame. Andrew had watched Adam’s face as he took in the expensive, custom-made suit, the polish of wealth and power, and Adam had given him the same small smirk he was getting now. A smile that was meant to look sexy and confident, but betrayed just the slightest hint of unsureness, too.

I'll Follow Thee and Take a Heaven of Hell
“Adam, I am not your intended.” Thomas tried to speak firm but his voice had an edge of softness to it. That is what Adam played on.

“You can be, if you so allow.” Adam lamented, gazing up into murky almond eyes. “What is a fair maiden compared to a merry fellow?” Adam ridiculed, voice laced with satire.

When the World Was Milk and Honey
Adam is Pharaoh, the most powerful man in the ancient world. However, when a new slave named Tommy catches his eye, he is reminded that there are things greater than the power of life and death. For Tommy, dragged from his home and forced into slavery, Pharaoh opens up a whole new world, equally wonderful and terrifying. But for both of them, is the risk worth the reward?

Send Off
It's late, and it's been a long day, and when the tall shadow of a man fills the doorway to the bar, Brad calls out, "Sorry, buddy, we're closing."

When he looks up, though, the face is familiar, even if the uniform and the slicked-back hair aren't. Adam.

Brad looks away, determinedly down at the rag he's wiping over the counter. He doesn't look up when Adam orders his usual scotch, just tosses two rocks in the glass and measures out the liquor and sets it down – and that's when Adam's long fingers close around Brad's wrist.

"Don't," says Brad, pulling his hand free. "I told you not to come here."

Can Never Wrong This Right

When their latest trek takes them to South America to locate the fabled Blood Stone, however, they both find more than they bargained for. Written for the hc_bingo challenge, for the square of "forced soul-bonding".

What Ships Are For
Gerard is most concerned when he finds that, while away at university, his father has taken in a new ward of his own brother's age. But upon his return home, he finds the young man to be particularly enchanting; unfortunately, according to the High Society he lives in, not only is Frank entirely too poor to be considered, but they might as well be brothers.

“They seem to decide everything for you.” Frank murmurs. “Do you ever do anything just because you want to?”

Gerard thinks it over, then he touches Frank’s knee with his knuckle lightly, without really thinking about it. “I like to draw.” He says, clearing his throat.

And then Frank pushes his lips to Gerard’s, quick and awkward with their nose squished together and everything. Gerard gasps against his mouth, in sheer surprise, and he can the feel the raw smell of sweat and daylight against his face.

I Was Your Silver Lining - historical backstory
Frank fell asleep in Gerard's bed again last night.

Gerard shouldn't have let him. They've been sneaking into each other's bedrooms at night for years, but it was safer when they were younger. If they'd been discovered back then, it could have been forgiven as childish mischief. But they're not children anymore, and Gerard can only imagine what would happen if Sophia knew her only son had slept in another man's bed.

nasaverse ficlet
It's late on a Friday night and Mikey is holed up in his room on the phone with Alicia, cord stretched as far as it'll go across the floor and through the crack in the door. Frank can hear his murmuring, just slightly, underneath the TV. He and Gerard are curled up under a blanket on the couch, watching Johnny Carson. It's been cold out lately, down as low as mid-forties at night, which feels chilly inside Gerard and Mikey's drafty apartment. Frank shivers, tucking his feet more closely under his thighs, and Gerard casts him a concerned look.

These Walls Are Built To Fall
For the last several months, Gerard has also been completely and devastatingly in love with the man who tends his stables.

Frank is the third in his family to serve in Gerard's family's stables, his grandfather having been hired by Lady Helena. Gerard has known him since they were both children--all of them were playmates once, Gerard and Michael and Frank and Robert and the head cook's oldest son, Raymond. But as they'd grown older, the constrictions of society and the roles and duties expected of each of them had put a strain on the friendships of masters with servants.

Waking Life
"Blobby stone things." Mikey nodded. "Boy were they ugly."

After a pause, required for Gerard to sort that out in his liquor-sodden brain, Gerard said, "I didn't think they were ugly. I liked the feathers. Pretty blues and purples."

Mikey stared owlishly at him. His eyes looked too small through the lenses of the ridiculous contraption he'd been using to help himself see. Spectacles, was what they were called here. As vision aides they were extremely inconvenient; they only worked when he wore them, and they continually slid down his nose. At least they were somewhat less cumbersome than the helmet thing he'd picked up a while back at the Wunesk way station.

Also the spectacles did not explode when they got wet like the helmet thing had. Luckily Mikey had not been wearing it at the time. Gerard wasn't sure regeneration worked in cases of decapitation. But that was a definite point in favor of the spectacles. The non-explodey-ness.

Unwritten Bandslash #2: more Chimerical Romantics
At the time I posted Chimerical Romantics I noted that in addition to being mostly summarized and told rather than shown, it was not Frank and Gerard's whole saga. I already knew the rest of the arc, at that point, but writing it out in even as much detail as I did the first part would have made it ... really, really long.

So here's the rest of the story, now even more abbreviated. Warning for a couple of characters being moderately villainous in ways that cohere with bandom's stereotypes of them, plus a cameo by Jamia as a hooker. THAT ONE WASN'T MY IDEA.

Chimerical Romantics
The aims of the Chimerical Romantics are not perfectly understood by any of them, though Gerard expounds upon them at length. The gist seems to be that they shall produce Great Art, and also be of service to their Fellow Men; Gerard read Don Quixote at an impressionable age, and played Robin Hood with Michael since Michael could toddle after him. Jersey lacks windmills to tilt at, or peasants being hanged for stealing crusts of bread, but Gerard remains convinced that there is something to be accomplished, and is determined to identify it.

In the early days this mostly takes the form of riding about at night wearing masks, undertaking feats more dares than daring, and endangering themselves more than any villain they might have encountered. Still, even if they are not strictly speaking helping anyone, Gerard feels enlivened by the sheer possibility that at some point, if only by accident, they might.

don't wait too long to come home
Gerard doesn't stir as Ray slips out of the bed and dresses himself. He finds a comb on the dresser and leans over it, squinting into the dirty mirror as he tries to wrestle his hair into something like respectable shape. Gerard's left out some of his make-up here, a tube of lipstick and some eyeshadow, a pot of some sort of cream. Ray wonders a little where Gerard got it -- did he pinch it from the drugstore or a little cousin, or did he just go and buy it outright himself, brazening it out? It seems careless to leave it out, Ray thinks, and he sets the pieces carefully in the top drawer. He picks up the lingeries and women's clothing off the floor while he's at it, lays them gently inside Gerard's closet and closes the door.

in sickness and in health
MCR Bob/Frank/Jamia WWII AU - (I am borrowing elements of this from someone else who may or may not wish to remain nameless) Frank and Jamia get married right before Frank goes off and gets killed in the war. Bob is wounded trying to save him and gets sent home. Jamia is pregnant, and Bob promised Frank he'd take care of her if anything happened to Frank, and they end up getting married. It's totally a ~marriage of convenience~ at first, but over time, they fall in love and it is slow and shy and full of guilty longing. BUT THEN it turns out Frank hadn't died, he'd been taken prisoner, and he's released when the war's over. He's starved and beaten and sick, and Jamia and Bob nurse him back to health, and there is stoic pining and people worried about honor and duty and thinking they're the fifth wheel. AND THEN A HAPPY THREESOME ENDING.

virgin death; du sang
The face resolved itself--male, familiar, but still unidentifiable in his current haze. He plumbed the depths for a name, but it was too dark down there to find anything at the moment.

"Gerard?" the man asked. "It is you, isn't it." There was something in his voice--disappointment? He wasn't sure. The man sighed. "Come on."

Just like that, he was being hoisted off the bar. His head rolled back, and a brief laugh escaped him--the room rolled the opposite direction of his head. Then he doubled over, spilling his guts onto the floor, and the shoes of the man supporting him.

The End of the Beginning
post WWII fic where MCR are returned to the US in varying states of physical/mental hurt. Gee has his wife to go back to, but also has to face Alicia, and while he's managed to come to terms with Mikey's death with the help of his unit, he feels pretty guilty for letting Alicia's husband die. Lyn and Alica are strong women in the workforce (overalls and mechanics!). They all deal with their pain and trauma together. A billion bonus points if MCR made pacts to *look after* their wives if something happened to them, and Alicia refuses to be a charity case, and it all turns into 50s secret swinging GSF.

Gerard and Rapunzel
"Son or daughter, it matters not," the holy woman said, touching the child's plump cheek and spying the wide green eyes surrounded by lashes dark as night. "This is my Rapunzel, repaid to me. Boy or girl, she belongs now to God."

Again the man and woman wept and begged Gothel's forgiveness, but she had spoken and would not speak again. The man and woman went back to the village without their son Gerard, and deep in the forest, high in the hills, Gothel rocked the girl called Rapunzel to sleep in the darkness.

30s magical carnie au that will NEVER BE.
things had become kind of weird after the incident with mikey's cat. some were walking on eggshells around frank, some were avoiding him altogether. brian and bob had seemingly deemed it best to keep frank as busy as possible, though, which didn't leave frank much time to ever be around the way brothers anymore.

ungrateful fuckers, frank thought bitterly. it would be the last time he ever helped anyone out. although it had been kind of worth it to see that flicker of hope in gerard when frank dropped the tiny bundle of once-very-much-dead now very-much-alive kitten on mikey's chest and watched it nose at mikey's clenched jaw. the wheat field outside was completely withered.

A World So Small
Victorian AU. When Frank, a sickly young man, is advised by his doctors to leave London for the country, he makes arrangements to stay with his friend Michael, who just so happens to be in possession of a large, old, and somewhat creepy manor house. What Frank has no idea of at the time is that Michael has an older brother, whose presence in the house he conceals. Gerard is an eccentric recluse who spends most of his time hiding in the attic and avoiding any kind of interaction with people, but he finds himself fascinated with Frank, who in turn realizes that the house has secrets, and becomes determined to uncover them. When he finally does discover Gerard, their first meeting is only the beginning of their story.

Give Me All Your Hopeless Hearts and Make Me Ill
Jack watches the band, noting how obvious it is that the hair of the guitarist on the right is only barely restrained by the thick layer of hair cream. He scans the others, taking in a shorter man who looks like he could take care of himself in a fist fight, but probably has problems taking orders – Jack would know,
he’s one of those guys – and a blond guy on a set of drums who tries and mostly succeeds to stay unnoticed while pounding out a rhythm.

Then the man-boy, really, on a bass guitar catches his eye and - - fuck, no. She had left him with more than just an occasionally annoying tendency to keep coming back to life (was it too much to ask to be able to get drunk still?). Jack can see the boy flickering; can see a beach in faded sepia tones behind him, the blond man frantically trying to bandage him up while the guitarists hold back a third man while bullets fly.

Gerard's heart constricted. Frank had never, ever shown up at his house before. And yet there he was, blackish-brown hair ruffled and shiny over his face, hands jammed in the pocket of his letter jacket as he rested his ass on the hood of his car like a fucking wet dream. Gerard felt himself go pale at the thought.

A Lovely Apparition (or, The One Where Gerard's A Crossdresser in the 1790s)
Michael didn’t seem particularly shocked when Gerard approached him with the idea, but then, Gerard had never seen his younger brother look particularly shocked at anything. He merely looked at Gerard, blinked once or twice, and repeated in a flat tone, “You want me to help you dress up like a woman.”

“It’s the stays in particular I think I’ll need help with,” Gerard told him. “Well, and buttoning the dress, and perhaps the wig.”
