Title: Measured Against the Regrets
Bands/Pairings: My Chemical Romance, Frank/Gerard
Rating: R
Word count: 18,735
Warnings: Mentions of drug and alcohol abuse

Summary: AU where the band never happened and Gerard quit his job at Cartoon Network to paint instead. After hitting rock bottom and going to rehab, he's back at home, struggling with a vicious creative block and trying to figure out his next move. When he reconnects with Frank at a Leathermouth show, the attraction is instant. Frank inspires Gerard more than anyone or anything has in a long time, but it's up to Gerard to turn that inspiration into a second chance.

Author notes: Written for the [profile] bandomreversebb challenge, inspired by this amazing mix by [profile] spuzz. The mix was great to work with--it inspired me right away, and I hope the fic does it justice! Many thanks to [personal profile] anoneknewmoose and [personal profile] tuesdaysgone for their awesome and speedy betas.

Mikey’s been saying he thinks Gerard would be into this band for a while now, but they’ve been playing bars and clubs, places Gerard still doesn’t trust himself and Mikey knows better than to invite him. )
