Master Post: We Used To Be Friends

Fandom: Bandom
Bands: MCR, The Used (Panic, FOB)
Pairing(s): Frank/Mikey (Ray/Spencer)
Word Count: 50 500 words
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Canon fuckery - this is an AU which borrows heavily from canon, but it's still an AU.
Summary:
"You and me, right Mikes?"

"Yeah, fuck everybody else."


Best friends since high school, if Frank could've chosen a brother, he'd pick Mikey. Then Mikey became a rock star and Frank... didn't. After years of radio silence, Mikey steps onto a stage in Jersey and back into Frank's life.

(Or, the one where Frank is a school teacher and Mikey plays rhythm in The Used.)

A/N: This story owes a lot to a lot of people. To [livejournal.com profile] anoneknewmoose for stellar beta and making sure I knew it was worth posting. To [livejournal.com profile] mizubyte for straightening out my canon fuckups (she drew me a diagram of the Starland Ballroom, you guys!) and being generally brilliant. To [livejournal.com profile] jenepel and [livejournal.com profile] silly_cleo the most awesome Nano gurus without whom this story wouldn't even have been finished, and to [livejournal.com profile] turps33, [livejournal.com profile] kopperblaze, [livejournal.com profile] cee_m and my entire twitter feed for continually reassuring me that there were people out there who actually wanted to read this ridiculous story. Lastly, to the awesome [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang mods for running the challenge beautifully and being super helpful and amazing.
