once i read this mcr fic, where they were all dead, okay? like, gerard had just died and he appeared in this afterlife, where everyone else was (i don’t remember if mikey died first or after gee died), but they all like, did really boring, repetitious jobs but That Was The Way Things Were Done, so ray and bob and frank (it was almost certainly a frerard fic, because reasons) did these things, and i know frank at least was gee’s roommate and maybe they shared an apartment with bob and ray and mikey?????
anyway, gee has ideas and isn’t satisfied with their half-life city and starts doing things, and mikey gets drawn into the House of Wolves (i mean that literally, because it’s an afterlife and there really is a house. and it’s of wolves). um but like the black parade songs are carried out literally in this fic, and various songs correspond to each of them and the way they died and stuff (like ray’s was how i disappear i’m pretty sure, like i think his child died? and he suicided after?—frank’s was actually house of wolves, even though mikey got drawn in, bc frank had been like a prohibition gangster or something, and mikey had committed suicide with pills so he was sleep). there is def, at one point in the fic (probably the end???????), a black parade, led by them, a la the music video.
they were all trapped in this city, because outside was really dangerous, but gee led them out and they all got to move on, i think?
THE POINT OF THIS POST IS: DOES ANYONE ELSE REMEMBER THIS FIC AND CAN YOU POINT ME AT IT AGAIN? I DID NOT SAVE IT TO MY MEMORIES IN LIVEJOURNAL AND NOW I WANT TO READ IT AGAIN.
