Like Your Favorite Memory by sweetrecovery

Like Your Favorite Memory

Band(s): Panic at the Disco [with a brief guest appearance by members of Empires]
Pairing(s): Jon/Spencer, with a few background pairings, including Tom/Sean, Brendon/Shane, and Ryan/Keltie
Word Count: 28,700
Rating/Warnings: NC-17
Author Notes: I took a lot of inspiration for the recording sessions from a documentary about Wilco called I Am Trying to Break Your Heart. (To conserve space, some extended notes on this are at the actual fic post on my writing journal.) The title comes from "Something to Do with My Hands" by Her Space Holiday. Thanks to belle_bing for the beta. I worked on this story for four months and really would not have made it through without her. Many others read drafts and gave me feedback; they're too numerous to name, but they know who they are and how grateful I am.
Summary: Futurefic, post break-up. Panic goes on hiatus, and Jon begins to withdraw from his bandmates. He barely speaks to any of them anymore, least of all Spencer, leaving their relationship to crumble, unresolved. When the band decides to reunite almost three years later to try writing and recording a new album in a loft in Chicago, Jon needs to figure out his own place in the band and sort out the thing he has with Spencer if they want to be able to make this record and put the band back together again.

This Song Is Not For You

Bands: Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance.
Pairings: Patrick/Pete, Patrick/Bob.
Word Count: 35,109
Rating/Warnings: NC-17
Author's Notes: Title from The Sounds' Song With A Mission. There's a lot of screwing with timelines in this, and it goes increasingly AU after November 2005.

Major thanks to everyone who listened to me gnash my teeth or saw parts of this as I was writing it, but especially stereomer for cheerleading and whining alongside me, and miss_saigon for listening to my wailing in person, for helping me figure out each step from the very beginning, for beta-ing, for everything. This wouldn't have been written without your help. ♥

Summary: Patrick tries to get things right.

The Skin of the Canvas

Band(s): MCR. (Brief appearances by members of the Sounds, Cobra Starship, Gym Class Heroes, the Used, and Placebo.)
Pairing(s): Frank/Gerard. (Referenced Bert/Gerard, Bob/Jepha, Gabe/Maja/Travis.)
Word Count: 42198.
Rating/Warnings: NC-17. Includes frank descriptions of nudity, sexual activity, and alcoholism.
Author Notes: This story was, oddly enough, partly inspired by a prompt by immortal_lights for Gerard/Brian Molko. The other inspiration was from a wolfshirts post, specifically this one. Thank you for the help commenters gave me there and via email, particularly the sorely-needed factual information about nude modeling. Thank you, of course, to the mods of this community for providing me with the goad to write out the idea the story gave me.

eleanor_lavish and arsenicjade both read this story in earlier forms, and provided much-needed encouragement. My betas, bexless, hetrez, and algernon_mouse, were all amazing, patient, and helpful. Thank you as well to thesamefire for catching a few small errors.

I've always wondered why, when Gerard decided he wanted to save lives, he turned away from visual arts and started a band. This is an AU version of one answer. Gerard is still at SVA, having taken a while away to enter AA and get sober; Frank is a nude model and punk rocker who's moved to New York City. Romance (and sneezing!) ensues.

Author Notes: I can't believe this is done! Extensive notes from me, including a masterlist of the fic's many, many parts can be found here. But I'd like to make a quick thanks here anyway to the many great mods and organizers of this amazing Big Bang. Thanks so much to all of you for your dedication to this; I never would have written something this long in such a short amount of time if it hadn't been for you. Thanks to the members of my flist who encouraged me both with and without knowing what they hell I was writing about. Thanks to ecarnation for being an amazing beta and thanks to my Starshine for being there every step of the way during this process. Thanks so much to adorkable37 for the fanmix and to all of you for being so excited to read these monstrously long fics! This has truly been an incredible experience for me as a writer and I couldn't be more excited or proud of the work I did. I really hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoyed creating it.
Summary: Mistakes are easy to make and the consequences are always hard to deal with, but nobody could have anticipated that one dumb one-night-stand would end in a freak male pregnancy. Now Brendon's left to hope that it all works out in the end as he embarks on the most unexpected and terrifying journey of his life.
