Title: Your Warm Whispers (into the dawn they carry me through)
Pairing: Cristiano Ronaldo/Mesut Özil
Disclaimer: Lies, lies, lies. I am a lying liar who lies. None of this is real.
Notes: Title taken from Warm Whispers by Missy Higgins, which also inspired the general feel to this fic since I had it on repeat while writing. I haven't written a fic in well over 18 months, so please be gentle. Plus, this is my first footie fic ever, so be extra gentle :x
( you stay surrounding me, surrounding meCollapse )
My current football fixation (and the subsequent/inevitable popping of my cherry re. of football fic) has inspired me to start a rec list. More for myself to keep track of my favourite fics than anything else, but I'll keep it unlocked for other people.
I expect this will only feature fics on football, My Chemical Romance, and Green Day. Not sure I'll be adding any fandom stuff, or different bandom, since I don't really read anything else. OKAY. Onto starting the list. I am only starting off with my absolute favourites right now, as it turns out making a rec list is tedious and time consuming. I'll be adding to it over time.
Please note that every single fic on this list is slash. I do not read het. fic, and I doubt I ever will :) Also, most of these are long. Like, 20,000+ words long.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
With Dripping Wings, Heavy Things Won't Fly by silver_etoile (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; angel/demon AU)
Summary: Gerard is in more than a mess when he is kicked out of Heaven, and the demon tracking him is certainly not helping him. Frank has a plan, though, and he needs the fallen angel for it to work. This is what happens when Heaven and Hell collide
Personal note: FAVOURITE. FIC. EVERRRRRRR. Just fucking read it.
Take the Pieces and Build Them Skywards by quarterturn (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; reaper AU)
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.
Personal note: This was the fic that turned me onto more ~supernatural type of AUs.
An Inexplicable Occurrence of Angels     by stele3 (Frank/Gerard; PG; angel AU)
Summary: It starts with a giant crash just after dawn. The ceiling of Gerard's bedroom rattles with footsteps that don't head in any particular direction, just thunder aimlessly from side to side. Then more crashing. Sounds like dishes.
Right Kind of Monster by slashxyouxup (Frank/Gerard; R/NC-17; vampire AU)
Summary: Twilight – The way Stephanie Mayer never intended it to be. Frank Iero has just moved from the sun soaked sights of Italy, to the cold white sighs of Tok, Alaska, to live with his unconventional mother, Linda. Though school isn’t hell and his new friends are accepting, there’s a certain boy from a well known family that captures Frank’s attention and eventually, his heart. Now Frank must experience these two worlds and balance himself some how between them, or else lose the love of his life
Personal note: Perfect. If you haven't read Twilight, I wouldn't say you need to in order to follow this fic.
Smokeless Flame of the Fire by tabula_x_rasa (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; genie AU)
Summary: Frank blinked. "What kind of name for a genie is Gerard?"
Child's Play & Child's Play 2 by slashxyouxup (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; kid!fic)
Summary: There are probably five playgrounds in the whole of New Jersey where it’s deemed safe to actually let your children play.
Something Better by lovelypoet (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; kid!fic)
Summary: "We all have to take jobs we don't like sometimes, you know?"
Personal note: I just... I cannot. This is just... the cutest thing I have ever read, oh my God.
Gathered Here To Witness by mrsronweasley (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; artist!Gee AU) + In the Springtime [sequel]
Summary: Gerard flies in from France in time for Mikey and Alicia to walk down the aisle, and to meet Frank at smoker's lane.
Personal note: I was late to the MCR party, and thus, later still with getting into MCR fic. These two were the first long fics I read, and dear God, I could not have asked for a better introduction to long!fic <3 I've re-read part one a few times.
She (Within the Measure of a Day) by mrsronweasley (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; college AU)
Summary: Gerard steps out in heels for Halloween. Everybody enjoys it. Some enjoy it more than others.
Personal note: Personally, I blame all of my crossdressing kinks on this fic alone. SO FUCKING UNF. If you're iffy about crossdressing, give it a go anyway. I was iffy before this, too.
Becoming Joan by mrsronweasley/theopteryx (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; artist!Gerard AU)
Summary: The only sound in the dressing room was Frank's breathing and the gentle shhhk as she pulled a lace tighter.
"There we go," she said, stepping back. "Yes?" she asked, when he was still silent.
"Yes," Frank said, still watching himself in the mirror. Yes.
Skin of the Canvas by sinsense (Frank/Gerard; NC-17; artist!Gerard/college AU)
Summary: 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.
Hands Down by maryangel (Frank/Gerard; R; artist!Gerard AU)
Summary: Frank is seventeen years, nine months and three days old, and he only has been kissed four times, by four different people.
Go and Show Him His Fault by escherzo/mwestbelle (Gerard/Mikey; NC-17; priest AU)
Summary: "If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over." (Matthew 18:15)
Personal note: BE WARNED THAT THIS IS INCEST. Yes, I personally find it highly kinky, but I know a lot of people are squicked out by it. Warnings aside, this is fucking u n f.
I will add more to this sometime soon. cbf anymore right now~
