The first time Frank and Gerard have sex, from Gerard's point of view.

Stockholm Syndrome
Frank was in absolute disbelief that an honest to goddamn armed robbery was happening in front of him. His terrified mind reasoned everything would be okay, though. The man would get his money and leave. He would be fine. The girl would be fine. Everything would be fine. But oh how wrong Frank was.
Frank looked around with a sorrowful glance, yet another sigh escaping his lips. He didn’t want to leave, but he really didn’t have a choice. Frank couldn’t find it in himself to even consider killing the man downstairs an option. He still had some morals left, even if he did willing choose to take up a life of crime.

“Frankie,” Gerard brought his hand over to rest on my leg, giving it a gentle squeeze. “I know the shit I did wasn’t right, but I was desperate. You weren’t supposed to know how I got the all money, but what’s done is done. I didn’t tell you about all this shit because I knew you would only try to talk me out of it. It’s all over and done with, and I’m going to get you out of here, okay?”

Gerard is still hyperventilating a little when he hears the police car pull away. It’s not that being arrested scares him, it’s just that he secretly almost has an aneurysm of fear every time the short skinny cop and the buff blonde look at his paintings in case they don’t like them. Fanart

CSI: New Jersey
Gerard’s jaw became slack as it seemed increasingly impossible to keep his mouth closed. He was stunned with fear, disgust and a slight sense of awe. “And we found this, next to the body.” He handed Gerard the Polaroid. “Victorian dress.

Creep In Like a Whisper
R   15,175 words 
Like many slaves, Frank has no memory of a life without slavery; he had either been born into captivity or taken in early childhood. His earliest memories are of the slave quarters in the first household he served in and the woman who looked after him, who may have been his mother. She was sold away when he was very young, and he can't remember ever speaking to her, but she always made certain he had his share of food and clothing and a clean, dry place to sleep. Once she was gone, he'd had to learn to fend for himself.

These Walls Are Built To Fall
R   6730 words
For a man who has yet to reach the age of thirty, Gerard has been many things in his time. Michael's older brother (if asked to rank all the things he's been in order of importance, that would likely come first) and his parents' son, and, nearly as important as either of those, the Lady Helena's grandson. He's been an artist, a poet (well, someone who writes poetry on occasion), and a dabbler (though without much success) in the musical arts. Since his father's death, he's been master of the estate, though he leaves much of the practical running of things to his capable (and often more level-headed than Gerard himself) valet, Robert. He has, very often, been drunk, or moody, or so lost in his own head that he only emerges from his studio when Robert knocks on the door and announces that if Gerard doesn't wish to be kidnapped and force-fed, he should come to dinner like a normal person. For the last several months, Gerard has also been completely and devastatingly in love with the man who tends his stables.

“I used to think this was Hell. I mean, I always figured that’s where I was headed, if there was any afterlife. And then when I got here…there were no lakes of fire, or anything, but I was stuck on my own in a place where nothing grows or changes, so I figured, okay, Hell’s just a little different than I always thought it would be. But then, after a while…it wasn’t so bad. I found a place where I could kind of belong, and I met Toro and Brian and Bob and Mikey…and you. And I figure…if I was in Hell, falling in love shouldn’t really be in the cards, should it?
So after that, I started thinking—okay, maybe this place isn’t anything I ever heard about in school or church. But then again, maybe it is. Maybe this is Purgatory. And I always had the idea that Purgatory was kind of like prison, y’know, you gotta serve your sentence and the only thing that’s gonna get you out quicker is good behavior or having friends in high places. But maybe—maybe you don’t have to just sit around waiting for someone to tell you your sentence is up. Maybe Purgatory ends when you get yourself out of it.”
