"Run" - Frank/Gerard, My Chemical Romance (bandom), NC-17, Epilogue


(Part VIII.)

Epilogue


Frank's pacing back and forth in the makeshift backstage. He's already taken a piss, and almost puked in the alley outside. It would probably have made him feel better, but he also hadn't eaten all day, and vomiting up bile is not what he'd call a good time.

"Chill the fuck out or I'll punch you in the face," Bob drops casually as he walks by carrying Ray's amp. "Or give me a hand with this shit, I'm not your fucking roadie."

"Sorry, sorry," Frank breathes and runs up to grab the amp from Bob. It's good to have something physical to do that will distract him.

The moon's effects have been a lot more bearable the past few years, the changes whittled down to nearly routine. Frank has tried his level best not to dwell on the whys and the therefores, but he doesn't really need to. He knows all the whys; he can feel the therefore somewhere nearby even now, like they're tied together by an invisible string. Frank knows that the day after tomorrow, he'll wake up in a storage container on his uncle's farm sore and starving, but whole enough to play the gig they've got booked in Pittsburgh that same night.

But that doesn't mean he can't feel her pull even now. Day away, and his skin tingles, his breath coming in short. This part never really goes away.

Maybe he'll have a quick smoke before they're up.

He's already sweating like a pig by the time they set up, and he escapes Ray's concerned looks and Mikey's bony-assed fingers all up in his business where he's been randomly poking Frank all fucking night long, and the first drag feels amazing.

He scrolls through the new messages in his inbox.

Hope you're having a good time Frankie, don't forget to call when you all head back home, I'll make your favorite. Love, Mom

Knock ‘em dead, son & Uncle George said the place is ready 4 u tonite, whenever you boys finish up. Love u, keep safe.

Dear Frank, please tell my boys that I'm not going to be their personal launderer next week & to find a laundromat en route. They don't believe me & they should. Luv, Donna

PS, Gerard's gotten his fin aid package for senior year. M says he won't care but I thought I'd ask you to tell him. G's forgotten cell phones exist in the world.

Frank cracks up and thumbs quick replies to everyone, in case he forgets to later.

He sucks the cigarette down in five minutes, coughs up the last of it, spits a pretty satisfying glob onto the pavement, pops a mint, then heads back in. The sun's set completely in the grey sky and the feel of that white pie in the sky heightens his awareness of the tiny club. Pumping sweaty bodies pressed closed together, stale beer mixed in with fresh pints with too much head; somebody's drinking whiskey sours. Somebody's getting sucked off in a bathroom stall, and he really wishes he couldn't smell that shit.

He almost vomits again from that, when a familiar scent enters the premises. Frank breathes out in relief and his skin settles.

"Hey," Gee whispers in his ear, a light hand over the small of Frank's back. "Five minutes."

"I know," Frank nods and leans back a touch. "You gotta call your mom, dude, she sounds real cranky."

"Ugh, I know, I just keep forgetting, you know?" Gerard huffs. "I'm writing a bunch of new lyrics, and I just get carried away sometimes. Like, lost in it or something." His breath is hot against Frank's ear. Gerard hasn't showered in over a week, and his smell saturates the air around them. Frank doesn't mind, breathing in his familiar stink. He tries to ignore the hard-on that develops in his jeans, but he knows it's futile. Pretty soon, no one will see it behind his guitar, anyway.

"Will you share with the rest of class?" he asks, instead, to distract himself.

"Not yet," Gerard whispers.

Frank shrugs, then pushes away. "All right, let's go," he says just as Mikey and Bob and Ray come up to flank them. He lets the four of them to go on ahead, slapping each one with a high-five, then grabs his guitar from the stand, pulls it over his neck and strides out, hands clasped behind his back.

His skin vibrates, his entire body pulsating to the beat that Bob and Mikey set right off the bat, and then he's gone in the hot lights and thrumming crowd and Gerard's voice screaming out for Columbus, Ohio to fucking welcome them with screams of their own.

Frank closes his eyes, grins, and drops to his knees. If he concentrates hard enough, he'll ride this one out on all their joy combined.


The End.



Master Post.

I am in love with this story. From the second I read the summary until I finally got to read the finished version (with all the gloriously porny scenes that were missing from the rough draft), I was in love.
I love everything about it from your characterization to your style.
Also, the porn is insanely hot.
Amazing job. Will read again.

I love this so much Liz!!!!!

I took my entire lunch break and read it and just, wow. I love you described Frank's feelings and the change and just, ugh, I felt like I was right there with him! And Gerard, oh dear sweet Gerard, he WOULD think it was the coolest ever! AND EVERYBODY, BASICALLY

*draws hearts around this story*

&YOU; &hearrts;

[identity profile] mistresscurvy.livejournal.com 2010-11-12 12:40 am (UTC)(link)
Oh MAN, I loved this.

I love your Frank voice, and the way this captures his crazy energy, and the way that Gerard is drawn to him, and how Gee thinks he gets it at first and then realizes he doesn't, but that it doesn't impact his feelings for Frankie at all - if anything, it makes him love him more. I also love how Gee brings his pack to Frankie, since Frank hadn't found it yet. (Ignore how incredibly cheesy that last sentence is, mkay?)

And the sex - Jesus H. Christ, it's just absurdly hot. And I loved the difference between the way the sex before the full moon felt and the 'normal' sex, and that of course Gee had to find out what the difference is between the two, and Frank getting grossed out by his mom knowing that he likes dick (HEE). I just loved how they were simultaneously a werewolf and his mate, and two really really horny teenage boys who had finally found someone else who really wanted to fuck them that they wanted to fuck, you know?

Also I will never get over the fact that Frank is a VEGETARIAN WEREWOLF.

Your Frank POV is one of the best in fandom, and I love how he sees Gerard, and how Gerard sees him. And I'm gonna stop now since I could just keep gushing for PAGES AND PAGES. Lovely, lovely work. ♥ ♥ ♥

I love this! Love it so much I left my sick fiancee alone in bed to come finish it! (I am so in trouble tomorrow)

But yeah. This was awesome. Really awesome. One of the best werewolf fics I've ever read, in fact! :)

Hot, sweet, cute, sad, amazing, heart clutching etc. Just, love :)

This is astoundingly awesome. Such a great teenage Frank POV. He felt really believable, which is pretty great in a fic with such an important supernatural element. I loved the development of his relationship with Gerard. Frank's mom is AWESOME; she's supportive and caring but not falsely perfect.

Also, as others have mentioned, the sex was incredibly hot.

Thank you for sharing!

This was a fantastic read. I love how uncertain Frank is about all his ~feelings towards Gerard. It felt very teenager, and very visceral. The way Frank tries not to set up any expectations about what/who he is allowed to have is heartbreaking, but at the same time awesomely over-dramatic in the teenage-angsty, all-or-nothing kind of way.
A great addition to the MCR high school au trope. Werewolves are such a great metaphor for puberty!

[identity profile] mrsronweasley.livejournal.com 2010-11-16 02:24 am (UTC)(link)
Yesssss, he is SUCH a teenager. HE HAS IT VERY HARD, OKAY, YOU JUST DON'T KNOW. :P Thank you, thank you, thank you - I'm thrilled you enjoyed it! :)

Oh man, I just. I can't even articulate how I feel about this fic. So very, very good. I am incredibly jealous right now.

I have to say my absolute favorite part is Gerard telling Frank how sorry he was, that he didn't get it, but he does now. ♥xinfinity.

This is absolutely amazing! You're amazing! Loved every minute of this, even though my heart ached for frankie thinking that he could never have " this". Your gerard, lol, so smelly but so sweet. And I'm thinking, all evidence points to wolves mating for life....

Oh um, almost forgot, the sex, it is sizzling!

OH OH OOOOOOOOHHHH LIZ. FIRST OFF, I ACTUALLY DO HAVE CAPSLOCK OF JOY FOR YOUR FIC, BUT THE REASON I AM CAPSLOCK IS THAT GRETA, MY 7 YEAR OLD, SPILLED MY WINE ON MY KEYBOARD A FEW DAYS AGO AND IT DOESN'T WORK GREAT. SO LET IT BE KNOWN. PLUS, LOST THAT WINE. DAMNIT.

BUT THIS. FIC. SRSLY, WAS ALL I HOPED TO HAVE IN A CONTINUATION OF YOUR FICLET AND MORE. REALLY, HOW DO YOU WRITE LIKE 17 SEX SCENES IN ONE FIC AND MAKE THEM ALL HOT AS HELL?? HOW?? I MEAN, THE CONSUMMATION, SURE, SHOULD ALWAYS BE HOT, AND THEN THE NEW SEX ACTS SHOULD ALWAYS BE HOT....BUT IN THIS FIC HERE, I FELT LIKE MAYBE THIS WAS THE MOST OFF THE HOOK PORN I'VE READ SINCE THE TAIL OF HORNS SERIES BY PUSHDRAGON. WHICH, OMJEEZUS.

WHY OH WHY WAS THE SECOND TIME THEY FUCKED SO AMAZING? YOU ONLY GAVE US A LITTLE BIT OF INFORMATION BUT THEM IN THEIR FUCKING SCHOOL UNIFORMS STILL CLOTHED, FUCKING AT SCHOOL???

THERE WAS, ACTUALLY, A HELL OF A LOT MORE TO THIS THAN PORN, OF COURSE. I ADORED HOW FRANK WAS AWKWARD AT THE START AND THEN WOULD NOTICE GERARD'S AWKWARDNESS. YOUR LINE IN THERE ABOUT, "MAYBE FRANK WASN'T THE ONE WHO SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT LOOKING LIKE A TOOL" OR SOMETHING SIMILAR WAS SO FUNNY. GERARD'S STUPIDLY BEAUTIFUL HAIR AND EYES AND FUCKING EVERYTHING. I KNOW, SERIOUSLY KNOW, THAT THE PHOTOS WE HAVE AND THE FUCKING VIDEO WE HAVE OF HIM IN RECENT WEEKS SEXING UP STAGES ALL OVER EUROPE FUELED THESE DESCRIPTIONS. I LIKE HOW YOUR GERARD WAS KIND OF A LOCKED DOWN VERSION OF THAT BUT TURNED INTO A PORN STAR WHEN FRANK WAS ON HIM. YES. [MAKES GRABBY HANDS AT GWAY]

THE BAND HERE WAS AWESOME. GREAT VOICES, ALL. LOVED SEEING BOB. LOVED HIS NO NONSENSE VOICE.

AND WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT YOUR FRANK. HIS REPEATED LONGING TO JUST TAKE WHAT HE WANTED, BE IT RUNNING FREELY OR GETTING HIS MATE WHEN HE COULD CATCH GERARD'S SCENT...I REALLY FELT, PHYSICALLY FELT, FOR HIM. HAVING TO KEEP HIS INNER ANIMAL IN CHECK ALL THE TIME. YOU DESCRIBED THESE THINGS, ILLUSTRATED THEM SO VIVIDLY.

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. I AM SO PLEASED THAT YOU WROTE SO MUCH; IT FELT LIKE EXACTLY THE RIGHT LENGTH. I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MUCH YOU MUST HAVE PUT INTO THIS. WELL DONE AND THANK YOU!!!

SORRY AGAIN FOR THE CAPS.

XO ANNA

Okay, 1) This is the most hilarious comment I HAVE EVER RECEIVED. Thank your 7 year old for me. *g*

2) Also, one of the nicest! Awwww, I'm thrilled you liked it! I had the biggest grin on my face reading this.

I REALLY FELT, PHYSICALLY FELT, FOR HIM. HAVING TO KEEP HIS INNER ANIMAL IN CHECK ALL THE TIME. YOU DESCRIBED THESE THINGS, ILLUSTRATED THEM SO VIVIDLY.

I cannot tell you how happy this makes me. :DDDDD

I loved a lot of details in this fic: how Frank reacts to the moon and calls it 'her' because of the influence over him; how Frank gets so antsy all the time but it gets worse when a certain smell turns him crazy after a first random blowjob; how Frank feels so much for Gerard, who is such a fucking tool but so adorable in this characters, my favorite character for sure; how you described the changes every fucking moon, always so powerful and strong and hurtful because pain was what Frank felt.

Also, how the sex is different every time, especially those three, two, one days before the moon comes out. And how Gerard is so into the werewolf thing that he doesn't realize why Frank's so freaked out by the fact that Gerard found out about until Gerard sees how much Frank hurts with the changes. It's an amazing story, full of great characters, from main ones to just random Bob and guitar-addict Ray Toro, goddamnit, and Frank's MOM so cool with the werewolf thing as long as she kept her baby around and safe. Gerard's so hidden within himself and reveals to be crazy about Frank just because he can. And Frank's been turning to a wolf every month and still doesnt find anything good in eating meat, despite all urges the wolf in him might make him feel.

It's awesome. Good job :D!

KAMIKAZE BLOWJOBS ARE STILL MY FAVORITE THING EVER!

LOL BRIAN WARNER. OICWUDT. Fucking dying laughing over here.

And this:
"...for one wild moment, he thinks they'll actually get glued together – a two-headed, eight-limbed beast that will slowly solidify into a graying fossil while the rest of the world – this house, this town, this life, will crumble all around them, and one day, centuries later, they'll be discovered and put on display in some futuristic museum in space, and for that one moment, Frank can't think of there being anything wrong with it, anything wrong at all."

Oh. Oh my heart. You perfectly described what it's like to be in love and make love, not just fucking. So very wonderful. <3

I liked your take on werewolves :) And I absolutely loved the fact that it was set in high school era <3 You really captured the intensity of it all with your characterisation of Frank.

And the epilogue & last paragraph were pure gold :)

The world could have fallen down around me since yesterday and I probably wouldn't have reacted at all until I'd finished reading this. I know it must have taken an eternity and so much work, but damn, I am just selfish enough to wish there had been even more.

I love supernatural fics at the worst of times, but done so incredibly well like this? It's how every werewolf, vampire, ghost-and-other-creature story should be.

And, of course, the sex. It's no secret you can write some pretty awesome sex, but oh my god, this was just above and beyond. Especially the rimming. Unf, omg, the rimming. Twice. Damn.

An amazing, incredible, wonderful job, bb. And now, off to see what I've ignored on my f-list since I couldn't quit reading this...

I started reading this yesterday and I've really tried to take it slowly and savour it but it didn't help, I reached the end much sooner than I wanted to anyway :-) I COULD HAVE GONE ON READING IT FOREVER!! IT'S JUST THAT GOOD!!!

I love your Frank, it's seriously one of the best Frank characterisations I've ever read. He's so solid and real! The way his relationship with Gerard grew and changed throughout the story had me completely captivated. And the way you used the sex to further the plot and characterisations was fabulous. I mean, well-written hot porn is always awesome, but it's even better when it's an integrated part of the story like this.

LOVELY, LOVELY, LOVELY STORY!!

[identity profile] mrsronweasley.livejournal.com 2010-11-16 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Awwww, thank you SO SO MUCH! I'm SO GLAD you loved it, and that Frank's characterization worked for you, because I worried a LOT, but still believed in it, you know? And I'm so glad the porn didn't feel gratuitous - there was a point! I swear! Each time! THANK YOU!
