HEY, REMEMBER A MILLION YEARS AGO WHEN I WAS WRITING A VAMPIRE AU?

(Note so that no one gets their hopes up: this isn't a full update to the story, more just a "still alive!...sort of" status report.)

Yeah, about that...I'm honestly not sure what I want to do with Sharpest Things, at this point. Some days I start thinking about it out of nowhere and get an idea and go YES YES I AM TOTALLY GOING TO FINISH IT, and then I hit another mental roadblock and go WHO AM I KIDDING I'M NEVER GOING TO FINISH IT, and then I think about how it was my first bandom fic ever and the early chapters kind of make me cringe now, but then sometimes I still get comments from people going "IDK IF YOU'RE EVER GOING TO FINISH THIS BUT I HOPE YOU DO" and it's simultaneously guilt-inducing and touching!

So I don't know. I do want to give it some kind of an ending, which may not be the ending it was originally going to have and I still have to figure that out, but I don't want to leave the people who still want it hanging. So I guess right now I'm just saying no promises, but watch this space?

I've had the part that comes right after where I left off written and sitting on my hard drive for uh, a while? And since I'm not sure what else I'm going to write for this AU or when it's going to get written, here's that part, at least. It's just a snippet, but I know some of you out there have been wanting to know what happens next, so here it is.

(For reference, since, y'know, it's been a million years: Chapter 9.)

Gerard wakes up groggy and disoriented, with a dull ache behind his eyes. )

Made From the Sharpest Things, 9/?
Fandom: Bandom AU (primarily My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, with various and sundry other bands).
Rating: R (language, violence, slight sexuality)
Pairings: Eventual Frank/Gerard, Pete/Patrick
Summary: What happens when the video for "A Little Less 16 Candles..." and repeat playings of "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" mix in my head.
Warnings: Bandom vampire AU, so if that's not your thing...yeah. Also character death and members of The Used being villains, but no more villainous than all the FBR-family vampires over in Chicago are being.
Notes: Other half of the halfway point! I debated holding off on this one so I'd have something more to post in a little while even if I don't get much more written, but I've been poking at this chapter so long to get it finalized that I want it posted and done with.

Previous chapters: 1, 2 & 3, 4 & 5, 6 & 7, 8.

Chapter 9 )
wordslinging: (fic--sharpest things)
Made From the Sharpest Things, 8/?
Fandom: Bandom AU (primarily My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, with various and sundry other bands).
Rating: R (language, violence, slight sexuality)
Pairings: Eventual Frank/Gerard, Pete/Patrick
Summary: What happens when the video for "A Little Less 16 Candles..." and repeat playings of "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" mix in my head.
Warnings: Bandom vampire AU, so if that's not your thing...yeah. Also character death and members of The Used being villains, but no more villainous than all the FBR-family vampires over in Chicago are being.
Notes: Tentative halfway point reached! \o? And I want to thank anyone who's giving this story a chance in spite of its massive WIP-ness. Unfortunately, I, uh, went and signed up for [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang, because I am insane. So things will be a bit slow(er) on the vampire front while an entirely different massive AU consumes my brain for a few months, but stay tuned! There's an angry angry vampire hunter!Frank in my head who'll never let me hear the end of it if I leave him hanging.

Previous chapters here, here, here, and here.

Chapter 8 )

Chapter 9
wordslinging: (fic--sharpest things)
Made From the Sharpest Things, 6/?, 7/?
Fandom: Bandom AU (primarily My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy, with various and sundry other bands).
Rating: Currently PG-13 (language, violence, eventual sexuality)
Pairings: Eventual Frank/Gerard, Pete/Patrick
Summary: What happens when the video for "A Little Less 16 Candles..." and repeat playings of "Vampires Will Never Hurt You" mix in my head.
Warnings: If the rating and the fact that it's bandom vampire AU hasn't already sent you running, I don't think there are any more warnings I need to give.
Notes: Still very Jersey-heavy, as my plans for Chicago are taking longer to come to fruition. Both of these also ended up as "everyone sits around and talks a lot" chapters, and I have an unsurprising weak spot for Gerard waxing philosophical about vampirism.

Previous chapters here, here, and here.

Chapter 6 )



Chapter 7 )
wordslinging: (fic--sharpest things)
Made From the Sharpest Things, 4/?, 5/?
Fandom: Bandom AU.
Rating: PG13 so far, for language, violence and sort of vaguely implied if you squint sexuality.
Summary: Step 1: Watch the music video for "A Little Less Sixteen Candles..." Step 2: Listen to "Vampires Will Never Hurt You". Step 3: Mix liberally.
Warnings: It is 100% Pete Wentz and Gerard Way's fault that I'm writing this. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. If the fact that it's bandom vampire AU hasn't already sent you running, I don't think there are any more warnings I need to give.
Notes: Jersey is still stealing most of the airtime, but I'm on a big FOB kick after seeing them live, so they might get a little of their own back. Also, disclaimer: I know very little about any of The Used, personality-wise, besides Bert. So hopefully no one is any more OOC than making them evil vampires makes them already.

Previous chapters here and here.

Chapter 4 )



Chapter 5 )
wordslinging: (fic--sharpest things)
Made From the Sharpest Things, 2/?, 3/?
Fandom: *mutters* Bandom RPS, but heavily, heavily AU.
Rating: PG13 so far, for language, implied violence and sort of vaguely implied if you squint sexuality.
Summary: Step 1: Watch the music video for "A Little Less Sixteen Candles..." Step 2: Listen to "Vampires Will Never Hurt You". Step 3: Mix liberally.
Warnings: It is 100% Pete Wentz and Gerard Way's fault that I'm writing this. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. If the fact that it's bandom vampire AU hasn't already sent you running, I don't think there are any more warnings I need to give.
Notes: Now with an actual title! As well as an introduction to New Jersey, which is trying to steal all my attention and leave Chicago abandoned, even though I'm trying to represent them more or less equally.
