The Boys And Girls In The Clique
NC-17   14,284 words
Not that Frank would ever be mean to Gerard, or anything, but Gerard had seen the way girls looked at Frank, who was their size, and often prettier than them, and he really didn't need to get his heart broken. It was hard enough being the Fat Ass or the Comic Geek or Pansy or really, any of the things that Gerard had seemingly always been, without falling for someone as unfairly good-looking and sweet as Frank Iero.

The Holly Golightly Club
Gerard was so drunk, he couldn't stand up. He was sitting on the pavement with his back against the lamppost, trying to grasp a thought long enough to figure out how to get inside the front door. He knew he couldn't sleep on the sidewalk; someone could hit him with a car, or his parents would know he'd been drinking, and he had school tomorrow. The path up to the house was just behind the bushes, he simply had to get up the stairs and find his keys. He needed to go to bed. He wanted to be drunker.

The Mathematics of Cunnilingus
NC-17   2670 words.
Gerard stared. Frank bounced, grinning.
"Do you even know anything about it? I mean, have you ever actually--" "Science project! That's the whole point! Learning something!" Gerard squinted, and he glanced around the lab. Everyone else was, like, flipping through their textbooks, pointing to topics. "Is there, um, really any science involved?"

Frank wakes up to the muted chirp of his cell phone alarm at one in the morning on the Tuesday of the last week of summer school. The night before, he made tired faces at his mother around nine thirty and went to bed, because he's not allowed out on school nights anymore and he can't sneak out until everyone's asleep.

It’s Not Easy Being Green
Frank lives 1.5 miles away from Saint Peter’s High School for Catholic boys. He can walk that distance in just under twenty five minutes, and run it in just over fifteen – ten if he cuts through fields and gardens without stopping or getting caught.

Of Star Wars and High School
Mikey pushes his glasses up on his nose. “And you haven’t asked him out yet because…?” he says while tipping his lunch out on to the grass. Gerard picks up an apple and rubs it against his trousers, shrugging before handing it back to his younger brother. “You’re an idiot? Yes, I think that’s it.” Mikey answers for him.

The Days of Dragons and Dresses
Frank and Gerard used to be the best of friends, always at each others' houses playing dress-ups. Gerard didn't care that he was always the girl, he liked the dresses and skirts. But as the years went on, the visits to each others' houses became fewer and fewer, until they stopped. Now they are both 16 and in high school. Can their friendship be saved?

In The Boys Room
Gerard tries to take care of a little problem, in a locked stall of the boys room, as quick as possible when he gets a visit from an unexpected guest. Set in the I'm Not Okay video universe.
Sequel Behind The Bleachers

Fundamentally Loathsome 
Alright, high school fic, but not your “typical” high school fic, I guess. Gerard and Frank “hate each other”. They get locked in a classroom together (*Gasp*! The classroom has food and a bathroom in it!!) over Christmas vacation.

Cigarette Smoke and Strawberries
Frank just sighs and concludes that it’s pretty much a fact: they are both retards when it comes to love.

A Matter of Logistics
NC-17   6500 words
Frank would like to know the logistics of going down on girls. Gerard can help him with that.

Gerard hates when Mrs. James asks him to tutor other (worse) kids in art, but if he wants to keep his sanctuary, he'll have to. Hopefully this Frank kid isn't as stupid as he seems.

You Only Hear the Music When Your Heart Begins to Break
R   13,700 words
Frank has high school figured out. His mom has given up arguing about the amount of time he spends in Gerard's basement, and he doesn't actually care if people think it's weird that he and Gerard hold hands in the hallways and go to the bathroom together. The only thing Frank cares about is figuring out why Gerard's suddenly avoiding him -- because what's the point of losing your virginity on Prom Night if you can't tell your best friend about it in the morning?

House Party  AU
It’s different day, a different house, but the scene is still the same. Frank stands alone propped up against the wall, beer in hand as he watches the sway of drunken teens writhe against each other, the loud sounds of soft pop punk pulse out from the sound system screwed to the far wall. The place is a mess already, Frank’s only been here for an hour and everyone is so fucking wasted he’s not sure half of them will even make it home tonight.

Frank had been amazed that someone in the 4th grade who he had never met before would do that for him, but Gerard had just helped Frank up and proceeded to tell him why Wolverine was his favourite out of the X-Men.

Teacher AU

In Which Gerard Is a Quirky College Professor and Frank Is the Best TA Ever
The summary is in the title.

Teach Me Art
Sequel Art Imitates Life
Every year Frank has a favorite teacher, and every year he becomes that teacher's "pet" by staying after class, cleaning the blackboard, organizing papers, or just dropping to his knees to work on his "extra credit". He enjoys being called the teacher's pet. It's never been an issue before, and he's never had a teacher unwilling to let him stay after class. That is, until Mr. Way came to school. He just radiated beauty in a simple masculine way that caught Frank's attention and ultimately his interest...

He's sick sometimes... To think like this, but he's never felt this strongly about a person... His art teacher.

To Cast Turpentine Kisses
High school teacher/student AU not!fic. Vaguely INOK-ish, but Frank is a student and Gerard is his teacher. Pretty much this started as an email back and forth about all the dirty shit that teacher!Gerard should do to student!Frank and we assembled it into an order that makes sense. But it's not a real story, do not be fooled! It just looks like one. Capslock and emoticons and "and then THIS should happen"s galore. Also: it's ridiculous. Title is a mish-mash of lyrics from “Cupid de Locke” by Smashing Pumpkins.

The High School Teacher AU

Gerard Way teaches art. By the time Gerard graduated from college, he was one of America's top young artists. His senior project was an actual solo show at a prominent modern art gallery. People asked him what he was going to do now, work as an artist, teach at a university, what? He told them that he’d gotten a job teaching high school in Chicago. He wants summers off and benefits. Plus, when he was that age, he really wanted someone to push him. It would have made him a better artist.

Something Unconventional
Frank is a nihilistic seventeen-year-old punk who’s about ready to give up on life. Gerard is the introverted, off-center English teacher who reminds Frank how beautiful life can be.
Fall Semester / Spring Semester (Incomplete)

All I Want For Christmas Is You
NC-17   4447 words

"I'm just saying," Frank continues, waving around a stack of lined paper like a flag, "they can barely call it the English department anymore, if this is the kind of thing the kids are writing for their other classes. I don't think this sentence even has a verb in it." He is tipped back in a chair in the teacher's lounge, worn Chucks propped on the table in front of him, cardigan sleeves pushed up to show off part of his tattoo collection. Bill Beckett from the English department is across the room, glaring over the top of an Ayn Rand novel, but Frank is oblivious. Or he doesn't care. From the glint in his eye, Gerard sort of suspects it's the latter.

Sequel The Permanent Thought Of You
NC-17   2865 words

"It's real," Frank says, going for teasing. "None of my daydreams ever involved a giant splotch of cadmium blue on your jaw." He taps lightly at the spot, and Gerard shudders.

"Mine did," Gerard admits in a confessional tone, and Frank laughs, then stops. "Wait, really?"

Snap A Shot With The Lens
PG-13   3000 words
Frank looked up from the wooden table, eyes wide as he caught sight of a dark haired, pale skinned man; a pretty dark haired, pale skinned man with warm hazel eyes and a small pixie nose; it couldn’t be the model, it just couldn’t, his luck wasn’t that good and Frank was certain that somebody would have snapped this guy up straight away if he was.

College AU Not!fic

FREE WINE, he bribes them, FREE! NO ID NECESSARY!

To Paint Silence
NC-17   21,300 words
Gerard is about one month away from graduating college, and the deadline for his final big Art project is getting closer. He's got one idea for it, but because of what it involves, he's been procrastinating it an awful lot just because he can't find the words to ask his best friend to pose for him.

And it's also about keeping his attraction in silence as the younger boy seems to constantly read his mind.
