( "You know Ray, we've never really gotten to know each other, have we?" Pete adjusted his top hat with a quick flick of his fingers settling it at a more rakish angle. It was an insane concoction of purple felt, complete with a peacock feather. "You make me coffee almost every day, but we've never really talked." )

Summary: Kick-Ass AU. Based on the concept of the comic Kick-Ass--what if, after witnessing the events of 9/11, Gerard had made a drastically different career choice, and, instead of starting a band, had chosen to become a superhero instead? This will be a WIP in my journal, please friend to follow updates.

( Everything I did, now that I look back on it, was some weird aborted attempt to be a superhero. I tried starting bands because I loved music and the way it effected people, the way it bettered people's lives, in some cases. I went into art because I loved superhero comics and I wanted to create something that would change lives. It always came back to wanted to touch people, protect them, change them, be something more. )

Summary: So it's finally done. Here is the last installment of Hunterverse/Let The Right One In AU AKA Gerard is a faily hermit vampire. Considering the amount of world-building I put into this, there is likely a sequel to come. For now, enjoy Gerard being a creeper, Frank being a tiny angry teenager, Mikey being a gothic businessman, and everything finally getting explained...sort of.

( A chalk white hand on his back, saving him from falling one way ('careful' came the dark rasp smothered in alcohol and paint fumes) and inviting him to fall another. He thought of that look in his mom's eye that morning, like she'd crack under the guilt of forcing him through the divorce. He remembered the look in Gerard's eyes over the bag of blood at his mouth--misery, and underneath, resign to more years of loneliness. )

Summary: Let The Right One In/Hunterverse AU. The plot thickens. Things rise, things settle, things move apart. Things break, things are mended. A vampire buys cupcakes, there are near deaths, and we introduce the sweet, the innocent, the Girl In The Petticoat. Be careful when you meet her eyes.
Beta: Vfor

( Gerard wrapped both arms around Brian, who started to kick and scream and spit. One of Gerard's hands clamped down over his mouth. Then Gerard twisted his head, opened his mouth wide and--Frank shut his eyes for a moment. The teeth. He couldn't have dreamed the teeth. They were too long, off-white, too real looking, hard and sharp, worlds away from those plastic ones he'd worn as a kid on Halloween. )

Rating: PG-13

Summary: The Dark Knight AU. The Joker (name unknown) is in Arkham, Batman (AKA Frank Iero) is sequestered in his penthouse. The Scarecrow (AKA Ryan Ross) has escaped. And Brendon Urie (AKA Two-Face) has been declared officially dead, but privately gone missing. Throw in a bright young psychiatrist (Mikey Way) treating the patient of a lifetime and we have a beginning, which is, of course, a very good place to start.
Beta: Vfor

( "Do they know?" The Joker asked, bright eyed, inquisitive, a look that was so heart-breakingly familiar that Mikey had to look away. It was the same but it wasn't the same. The expression matched but the eyes, his eyes were so dead. And those scars. God. "What happened to you?" he asked, finally. He couldn't keep up this pretense anymore. The Joker leaned back. "They don't. They don't know. I'm not surprised, Mikes, you always were so protective." )

Summary: Boy meets vampire. Vampire attacks boy. Boy lets him in anyway. Based on Let The Right One In and Hunterverse, a story of The Awkward Vampire, The Angry Young Man, and things continually being more than they appear to be.

( 'The Awkward Vampire.' It'd make a good album title, he thought, and had to stifle a weird laugh, because that was the first time he'd actually let himself even think the word. When he'd been searching for books at the library, it had been a clinical keyword attached to some books. Now it was very real, and very possibly sitting outside his window, asking plaintively to be let in. )
