fic recs for bandom, and since I am a conscientious enabler...
Introduction to Bandom reclist! My Chem centric because, well, FRANK. Which seems to be a justification I use a lot recently, but seriously, just look at him. *points to icon* How can you resist? ;)Mostly Canonical Fics
, where they are people in bands.A Natural Reaction to Rough-Housing
Frank/Gerard, long. Frank discovers that he likes comforting Gerard after he has been hurt, but is somewhat troubled by all the hurt he ends up causing. Hilarious (I've been using snippets of the text to lure kabeyk
into the fandom, and despite her dislike of My Chem in particular and RPS in general, this fic has caused her to waver) and sweet, with a most enjoyable character-based plot. bexless
is one of the best writers in this fandom, and her Frank/Gerard in particular is brilliant.A Necessary Requirement
also by bexless
Frank/Gerard, short and endlessly funny. Gerard feels that dick-showing should happen only in the context of a loving, stable relationship.
Between these two fics, you'll learn all you need to know about My Chem, and about Frank and Gerard's relationship. :)Unequivocal
Frank/Gerard, long. Basically follows the real life events of the band, with added Frank/Gerard. All you need to know about the history of My Chem, as well as vastly interesting as a character piece.Pretty in Ink
Pete/Patrick, Patrick/MCR, short. Possibly the most hilarious fic in the history of the universe. The rest of Fall Out Boy worry about Patrick's tattoo virginity, while Patrick has a gangbang with My Chemical Romance. And who wouldn't, honestly? :PA Stitch Away From Making It (A Scar Away From Falling Apart)
Pete/Patrick, long. Pete Wentz's sextape leaks out, and Patrick is conflicted and horny. Long and soulful.Chord Change
Pete/Patrick, short. All Decaydance bands turn gay for Patrick. Hilarious and sweet.Clothes Off!
Pete/Patrick, Pete/bunch of other people, short. Pete Wentz has trouble with other people's dicks. Sweet and funny.Anywhere You Let It Go
Pete/Patrick, Brendon/Spencer, long. With added Panic (!) at the Disco. Skoosiepants has a style of writing that is both sidesplittingly funny and heartwarmingly thoughtful. Also, this one has My Chem in crushed velvet. Bob Bryar in crushed velvet. And Patrick Stump's weirdly stoic baby.Mostly AUsConclusions
Frank/Gerard, long. What might have happened if they hadn't formed the band - Frank owns a small record company and Gerard is a basement-dwelling artist. Hilarious and endearing and full of genius characterisation. An Inexplicable Occurrence of Angels
Frank/Gerard, long. Where Gerard is a failed rockstar and Frank is an angel who falls into his kitchen. Naked. *g* Also includes some of the best insightful writing I've encountered, a compelling plot, and FRANK. No, really. If you read only one of the fics in this list, read this one. Link goes to final part, which has links to previous chapters.The Holly Golightly Club
Frank/Gerard, Pete/Mikey, long. Based on the I'm Not Okay video, where My Chem are boys in a prep school (ties!), and also nerds who get beaten up by jocks. Most amusing and engaging.In Which Gerard Is A Quirky College Professor, And Frank Is The Best TA Ever
Frank/Gerard, long. The title really says it all. *g* Link goes to final part, which has links to previous chapters.Forever, Now
Long genfic, where Gerard and Mikey are streetkids and Brian Schechter takes them home. No, not like that you perverts. Also, with the world's tiniest Frank who never fails to be awesome and hilarious, and some added Brendon/Spencer.A Common Understanding
Pete/Patrick, long. A scifi AU where Pete blackmails Patrick into being his mistress. Lovely and hot, and yay for my favourite kink ever. ;)Supersaturation
SGA/Bandom crossovers, long, with Brendon/Spencer, Frank/Gerard, Pete/Patrick, Ryan/Jon, Bob/Joe et al. Hilarious and endearing and engaging, and very much worth the read if you're into SGA at all.
