Summary: Gerard's not happy with his life, but that doesn't mean he's particularly thrilled when he wakes up dead. To add insult to injury, he finds out that instead of crossing over, he's been chosen to join the ranks of the grim reapers. Things get more complicated when he falls for one of the living, a waiter named Frank Iero. And just when everything finally seems to be falling into place, Frank's name shows up on the list of souls to be reaped. Loosely based on the TV show Dead Like Me.
Notes: First and foremost, a huge thank you to schneestern. She listened to me while this was still in the planning stages and encouraged me to flesh it out, and was there with me every step of the way. I could not have finished this without her. And my undying love and gratitude to my betas, earlofcardigans and cool_rain_kiss, who whipped this thing into shape and convinced me it was worth posting. ILU. Any remaining errors are my own. And to all the people who encouraged me along the way (♥) and the BBB mods for organizing the challenge.
