Title: On the Getaway Mile
Author: [livejournal.com profile] jezrana
Band(s): My Chemical Romance
Pairing(s): Frank/Gerard, Gerard/Grant Morrison
Word Count: 40,072
Rating: R (for sexual content, violence, and language)
Warnings: Violence, homophobia, consent issues (prostitution, sexually threatening situations, and noncon groping)

Notes: Sequel to Shook-Up World, which should probably be read first. Apparently, "period pieces where Gerard crossdresses" is a niche I am very comfortable in. Standard disclaimers apply: these representations of real people are entirely fictional and nonprofit, I've tried to make sure there are no glaring inaccuracies but the bulk of my research was Wikipedia and gangster movies. I do want to mention my main form of research that was neither of those things, the documentary Before Stonewall, which is well worth a viewing if queer history is relevant to your interests. Many thanks to my awesome betas, [livejournal.com profile] fleurdeliser, [livejournal.com profile] ciel_vert, and [livejournal.com profile] mistresscurvy.

Summary: It's the last year of Prohibition, and bootlegger Frank Iero wants to sever his ties to the world of organized crime and go straight, but his mob connections have other plans for him. No one would like to see Frank get away from the mob more than Gerard, but he's got problems of his own--like the fact that he's a cross-dressing cabaret singer constantly struggling to keep his true identity secret from those who can't be trusted. With the help of a devoted brother, a detective who just might be as trustworthy as he claims, and a wealthy, eccentric Scotsman who features prominently in Gerard's past, Frank and Gerard just might be able to get out and start a new life together, but it's not going to be easy. A tale of gangsters, garter belts, love (hopefully) overcoming all obstacles, and a whole lot of coffee.
