Summary: "I used to think this was Hell. I mean, I always figured that's where I was headed, if there was any afterlife. And then when I got here...there were no lakes of fire, or anything, but I was stuck on my own in a place where nothing grows or changes, so I figured, okay, Hell's just a little different than I always thought it would be. But then, after a while...it wasn't so bad. I found a place where I could kind of belong, and I met Toro and Brian and Bob and Mikey...and you. And I figure...if I was in Hell, falling in love shouldn't really be in the cards, should it?
So after that, I started thinking—okay, maybe this place isn't anything I ever heard about in school or church. But then again, maybe it is. Maybe this is Purgatory. And I always had the idea that Purgatory was kind of like prison, y'know, you gotta serve your sentence and the only thing that's gonna get you out quicker is good behavior or having friends in high places. But maybe—maybe you don't have to just sit around waiting for someone to tell you your sentence is up. Maybe Purgatory ends when you get yourself out of it."

Summary: Gerard is a talented magician, responsible for much of the success of the famous Envision Destiny cruise ship. He's also one of those people.

You wouldn't wanna touch their personality with a 10-foot pole, but stillpeople admire them.

Besides, everybody else doesn't have to deal with his snide remarks and rude comments. Because if there's one thing Gerard seems to love, it's the act of constantly pestering Frank.

Summary: AU: A rise in technological and medical advancements combined with an unexpected surge in mutations around the globe can only mean one thing: superpowers. As a child born before the information boom of 2010 rocked the world with the official news of these "SuperHumans", Frank Iero was kicked out onto the street at nine years old. His power seems to be more of a curse than a blessing: his body creates and leaks a net of energy that sets those who are unaware of it on edge. He is saved at first by a rogue agent of the government who understands the plight of the homeless children, and then by a small team of government agents who bring him into The Institute: an underground compound set up by the government to teach those with emerging superpowers how to control and use their gifts.
Frank finally has a place where he seems to belong, and a group of friends: Mikey Way, a telepath; Gerard Way, whose body is a vacuum that neutralizes energy; and Ray Toro, a healer. All is far from perfect, however. Frank's powers and training are put to the ultimate test when he has to fight both evil and betrayal to save not only the world, but also the best family he's ever known.

"Besides," Mikey continues after a beat, "you'd get to hang out with me. And Ray and Frank too, I guess.
