Since today is Mikey Way Day Fourth of July and both of us are petekey trash,we have decided to write some headcanons about them! So put Fourth of July and Bang the Doldrums on repeat and enjoy!
- The worst part of any day for Pete was leaving Mikey’s bed and heading to his own so that they could keep their relationship secret - Every time Gerard saw the two of them together, he would either wink or nudge Mikey, because Mikey can never keep a secret from him, and Mikey would blush profusely while Pete just smirked back -On the warped tour in 2005 Pete and Mikey would often go to a field nearby and Pete would make flower crowns and they’d watch the sun go down -After concerts at 1am Mikey would take Pete out to old diners that would be open and they’d just stay there the whole time talking and joking till the sun came up - Nowadays when Fall Out Boy releases a new album,Mikey will listen to all of it with a huge smile and text Pete a full novel about what he liked about all the songs - Mikey wrote a sweet heartfelt text or FaceTimed Pete on his birthday and that was why there wasn’t a tweet - Pete’s favourite thing to do was to wind Mikey up in public by pretending he was about to announce their relationship but instead just saying shit like “I’m hungry as fuck”. Secretly every single time Mikey hoped he would actually tell the truth so that they wouldn’t need to hide - Mikey was never able to date a guy again. every thing they ever did would remind him of Pete and that was just too painful -the worst part for both of them was after breaking up pretending to still be good friends because they had to keep up appearances. In the end, however, this proved very good for their relationship as after a while they genuinely got on as friends again, though they never stopped getting that small ache in their chest when they found out the other was dating someone new - Mikey invited Pete to his and Kristen’s wedding but Pete turned it down. He said he had other plans but really it just hurt too much to see Mikey so happy with someone else. Although he had gotten over their romance, it still nagged in the back of his head that that could have been him
