Ever since he started university, Spencer has been quite content studying his dragons and trying to talk to Brendon, the young man who works at Spencer's boarding house. Having the dragons fall mysteriously ill is the last thing he wants, but then again, it does mean more time spent with Brendon as they try to figure out what's wrong.
The Dark was dangerous, Gerard and Helena knew that, but the Dark was home. They hunted subatomic particles, selling their harvest and followed the shift of gravitational currents from world to world.
And in spite of knowing how dangerous the universe was, it was still a surprise when they got the mayday from Mikey and Bunny Marie. Bunny Marie damaged beyond self-repair, her engines destroyed, spinning helplessly, unable to maneuver. Mikey was going into stasis and Bunny Marie was shutting down all non-essential systems; they could hold out until Gerard and Helena found them, however long it took.
Sean's looking for a new act to sign, and he meets William Beckett.
Frank's worked hard to build a life for himself in the city of Jersey, where dragons swoop and dive over the river, and every day is divided by the ringing of the city bells. He knows the streets of the city like he knows the the tattoos on the backs of his hands, and he's content with what he has: a job as a bike courier, friends who love to give him shit, and a crush on a professor of art history at the local university.
But he's also got a secret—one he's been running from for a long time. But all it takes is one delivery to a mysterious, quite-probably-magical bookshop to show Frank that there are some things you can’t outrun. Especially since he’s finally found a place that he doesn’t want to leave.
Mikey enjoys being the lead singer of Asthma. It's a good time, and people like them and his bandmates are pretty cool. But everything changes when Silver Skull finds them. Now they're on the run and Mikey has no idea where to go. He ends up staying at his buddy Ray's place. Ray's fucking great, and he probably won't kick Mikey out. Things would be pretty good, if only Mikey could stop being such an asshole. And why the fuck does Ray keep insisting that Mikey has a brother?
Patrick couldn’t quite get his head around the idea that he’d lost six years of memories. One minute the band was on hiatus and Pete was barely speaking to him, the next, the band was back together and Patrick and Pete were married. It was everything Patrick had ever wanted, but he didn’t have any idea how to be the person everyone expected him to be.
As the only charm weaver in his small village, Gerard has lead a quiet but productive life. All of that changes when he crosses the path of a dark fae with royal ambitions. A fairy tale with wicked witches, magic, and (of course) true love.
Frank, Brian, and James own a bakery/chocolatier/patisserie together. Grant Morrison, who has a television program devoted to food and travel, decides to profile the up-and-coming New Jersey food scene and chooses their shop to visit. It's sure to be a disaster if Frank can't get over his grudge about the jokes Grant made about Jersey in his latest review.
Mikey's fucking lucky to know so many great dudes he can hook up with. Especially Travie, who's fucking great and willing to tie Mikey up and hurt him if Mikey asks. It doesn't matter that he's avoiding Gerard and Gerard has no clue what he's getting up to. Mikey's not actively hiding it. It's just, it's kind of hard to talk to your brother about your sex life. Especially when you're in love with him.
Warped passes in a blaze of hot nights, broken strings and stolen kisses. The last night of tour finds Patrick, Ray, Pete and Mikey the last guys standing after a long, lazy night of partying. It makes a weird kind of sense that it would be the four of them, Patrick figures. Two couples nearing their use-by date, trading sleep to wring every last moment from the summer.
Frankie thinks she's got it together, she's fronting a band, playing shows, finally living away from her mom, working a shitty job and attending college. Not to mention the slightly okay girls she brings home. Slightly okay girls who never seem to actually call her... and yeah, maybe her life isn't as together as she thought it was, especially after meeting some random dude at a party who turned out to be her flatmates brother and not a complete jerk. Takeout is consumed, arguments are had, pining is contagious and sexualities questioned.
Frank spends his time at Cedar Creek Elementary sucking at answering the phones, playing nurse, spinning in his chair, and avoiding glares from Principal Bryar.
His life gets turned upside down when his cousin Dani gets thrown in jail and he suddenly has custody of her three kids. Frank copes with the abrupt change with help from his mother, his friends, and this Gerard guy that he (sometimes literally) can't seem to quit running into.
Gabe has a thing for super-cute punk types. Pete has a thing for Gabe.
A genderqueer romcom of happy nice time.
Title: The One Where Gerard's An Amateur Wizard Whose Potions Never Turn Out Exactly Right
Band(s): My Chemical Romance
Word Count: 13 746
Warning(s):slight dub-con, sexual content
Summary: Gerard is a wizard (without a wand because he's not THAT kind of wizard) whose potions never turn out as anything other than failures. He can never seem to concentrate in class, doesn't finish assignments, can't follow directions for potions and is incapable of discerning flirtations. Mikey is a potions prodigy who is always cleaning up Gerard's mess.
Besides failing at potions, Gerard likes to spend his time in a local coffee shop, where he meets the new barista, Frank, who keeps offering him free coffee.
Gerard abandons Frank for college after a one-night stand, leaving Frank behind in Belleville to pick up the pieces and try and get through high school. This all comes to a crashing halt when a bunch of supernatural creatures show up unexpectedly one night and Frank suddenly finds himself right in the middle of a war for his city and his life overflowing with vampires, werewolves and a deal with Death himself.
Some things change but some things stay the same. Cloud Atlas / My Chemical Romance music videos fusion. Frank, Gerard, Mikey and Grant meet over and over again in different ways and as different people in a series of interlocking stories, each taking place in the universe of one of MCR's videos (Not OK, Ghost of You, Welcome to the Black Parade, Desolation Row and Killjoys).
