In Repair by blue_soaring

Title: In Repair
Author: blue_soaring
Band(s): My Chemical Romance
Pairing(s): Frank Iero/Gerard Way
Word Count: 33,333
Rating: NC-17

Warning(s): Frank is sixteen. Also, there are robots.

"Shit," Frank mutters, and shoves both hands through his hair. He looks around the kitchen like he's gonna find what he should do scratched into the old linoleum, then looks back at the bot. He gnaws on his lip. Fuck it. He already knows what he's gonna do. He's just gotta do it.

Getting down on his knees, he braces a hand on the edge of the crate and leans over the bot. It's dressed in a plain white tee and matching drawstring pants like an escaped mental patient. Frank rolls his neck and cracks his knuckles, shaking the ache out of them before carefully laying his palm against its cheek. He's pretty sure his voice is steady when he says, "Activate."

Nothing happens. Fucking shitty packaging-- the thing's busted. But Frank keeps his hand where it is, jumping a little when he feels the surge of energy beneath it. The robot's skin goes from room temperature to lukewarm, then warm. Frank watches it open its eyes, the light behind them adjusting until they're a pale sort of brown. It looks at him and asks, "Am I dead?"

Spencer Smith is a watchmaker and clockwork inventor who specializes in toys made to amuse children.

A florist AU.

“Um, okay,” the guy says. He scratches at his nose, and continues to glance around the store, enraptured, albeit a little awkwardly. Eventually, his gaze lands back on Frank. “Is this your place?”

Nodding, Frank grins (that silly, prideful one that he absolutely cannot help) and opens his arms wide to gesture in a sweeping motion. “Pride and joy,” he quips. “It was my grandmother’s.”

Hey everyone!

Just a reminder to please check the code before you post. GDocs used smart quotes in the posting email and we didn't catch it, and LJ doesn't recognize them properly, so a lot of y'all are posting broken links. :(

They're still workable (readers can just delete the extra url/characters), but they're messy. We're so sorry! :(

We All Build Our Ruins by kuriositet

Title: We all Build Our Ruins
Author: [personal profile] kuriositet
Band: My Chemical Romance
Pairings: Frank/Gerard, Frank/OMC, implied Gerard/Grant Morrison
Word Count: 28 863
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Coercion of a minor (16 y/o) by OC teacher. Student/teacher relationship. Also, on a less serious note: I’m not American so I haven’t gone to an American High School so I don’t know what it’s like and media/pop culture have hundreds of different versions of it, but I tried my very best to make it work, and if you find something weird it’s because I don’t understand your school system. I researched what I could, and I hope it makes sense to you all.
Summary: Frank is a young teacher only a few years out of college who means well and wants to make a difference, but when the High School Junior Gerard is in trouble and Frank helps him out, he feels responsible for him and ends up bringing work home with him. Things go downhill when his long-term relationship ends and he's got nowhere to turn but to Gerard, whom he can't help but grow dangerously close to. Frank has to try to stay away from him, but that might be easier said than done, especially when Frank finds out that there is another teacher who knows.

Lush!AU. The one where Ray is a skin care expert, Frank is obnoxious, Mikey is annoyed and Pete leaves glittery handprints all over everything.

Welcome to Desert Rock Academy. The court or your parents have sent you here because you have become uncontrollable and a danger to yourself or others. Here, you will learn to respect your parents, your teachers, your counselors, and yourself. How soon you learn this is entirely up to you.

Gerard hadn't meant it. He'd never threaten anyone, much less hurt them.

Pete was a fuckup; he'd be the first to admit it. But he didn't deserve this.

Brendon knew he needed to be there. When he was fixed, he'd be allowed home again.

None of them knew what to expect, but what they were faced with was worse than a nightmare. While trying to navigate through the system, each of them will find out what they'll do to survive, while trying desperately to hang on to some part of what they used to be. No matter what happens, they are determined to make it out of Desert Rock, one way or another.
