Grey Crimson Skies: Master Post
Title: Grey Crimson Skies
Author name: turps33
Artist name: tortugax
Fandom: Bandom: My Chemical Romance
Genre: Slash
Pairing: Gerard/Bob, Frank/Mikey
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 43k
Warnings/Spoilers: Mentions of a past suicide attempt and detailed descriptions of ongoing struggles with serious depression.
Summary: Set in the same universe as Tints of Rainbow Hue. This is a story about relationships, how they form and strengthen and how good friends can become family, the people that have your back, even on the most darkest of days.
Notes When I first posted Tints of Rainbow Hue I promised turlough that I'd write her a ficlet set when Gerard was a little more functional. This is that ficlet. What can I say? I got wordy.

I need to thank the people who listened to me talk about this story, often at length and over many emails. I especially want to thank themoononastick and sperrywink for their great betas. I've changed things since they saw this story, so any remaining mistakes are mine and mine alone.

Thank you to tortugax for the lovely mix and cover art.

Thank you also to the mods at rpf_big_bang who have made this such an enjoyable process.

Please take a moment to go and see the mix and accompanying cover art tortugax produced for the story. She did a fantastic job. Mix with cover art

Wait, which means *tomorrow* is Unconscious Gee Day! How can I cope with so much awesome all at once??!?

Well, I didn't have anything important planned for the week anyway, I guess. :D

HEE YOU POSTED IT, YAY! Oh, man, you know how much I loved that fic, right? I'll still go and re-read it when I'm home and have the time to bask in its glory :-)

I did post it. It felt like my posting date would never arrive at times.

I do know. You're the best and thinking of your email still makes me grin like crazy <3

I'll totally repost it, dude, just to be part of your LJ commenters ;-p

You've posted it, whoohooo!!! I certainly know what I'll be doing for the next couple of days ;-D

It's not that long! *g*
From: turlough Date: October 12th, 2009 01:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
No, but if it's anything like Tints I'm going to need to take frequent breaks in my reading because it's emotionally exhausting.

And you're posting the plane crash fic tomorrow!
turps33 From: turps33 Date: October 12th, 2009 01:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah yeah, there is that.

Emotional pain one day, physical the next. I'm on a roll.

That's why you need to write something light and fluffy next to clear you head from all this angst ;-)

holy hell, I just squealed "No Way!" like a 14 y/o when i saw this posted. I had no idea you were writing a sequel, but even without having read word one of it, let me just say, thankyou thankyou thankyou for continuing this verse!!!!!! I loved the other installments and have read them multiple times. I am a terrible lurker and don't remember if I have commented on them before but u have made me incredibly happy as this is one of my fav stories! thank you! :D

This is such a lovely comment to receive.

I hope you enjoy the story, and thank you so much for what you said about the others. It means a lot that you took the time to comment.

This is one of my favourite stories. I like how Gerard doesn't just get better - he still has his really bad days but Bob tries to help him through it as much as he can. It's a very realistic depiction of depression imo. Very well done. Thanks for sharing.
turps33 From: turps33 Date: July 10th, 2010 10:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you.

I'm so proud of this story and didn't want to write something where everything is all happiness at the end, because as much as we'd like it that way, life doesn't work that way.

I'm really glad it works for you. Thank you for letting me know.
