Hey, all! So, because I fail and stuff, I have extra tickets to several upcoming shows that may be of interest to people. I have the tickets in-hand, and I'm selling the spares for face value (listed); you can either meet me at the venue or I can try to mail them or something, but if I'm mailing them I'll need Paypal ahead of time. Otherwise, either Paypal or cash-at-the-door is fine.

SHOWS! \0/
(All tickets are General Admission/SRO. As far as I know they aren't actually sold out? But hey, you don't have to fight with Ticketmaster and/or Ticketweb, so that might be a bonus. *shrug*)

All Ages
Tuesday, March 22. Doors open at 6pm, show at 6:30.

This also happens to be my birthday, so before the show you will find me at Sunset Cantina, just down the block, having a birthday dinner. Anyone who can read this is welcome to attend that, btw. <3

Patrick Stump
Great Scott, Allston MA

I've got two tickets to the House of Blues show in Boston, but I'm 99.9% sure these have already been claimed. However, I can't remember which of you claimed them (though I've got a mental list of likely suspects... <3 ). If you own one of these, please comment or email me or tweet at me or something so I don't have to go crazy wondering? TY! <3 <3 <3 I promise to write down your names this time!

Way, way back, when I was but a wee baby!bandomer (AKA August, 2009), I wrote a little Frank/Gerard-ish fic called Vampires Will Never Hurt You (But I Make No Promises About Zombies)

This fic was, in a word, ridiculous. It sprang from this idea I had about wee!Gerard who had a disease that made him kind of like a vampire (he can't go out in the sun), and wee!Frank who thinks wee!Gerard is THE MOST AWESOME PERSON ON EARTH, and their adorable fourth-grade love. It was only 1,400 words, and an elementary school AU, and while I did get some lovely feedback when I posted it, and I was a bit in love with my wee!boys, I moved on to other parts of bandom and didn't exactly forget about Vampires, but I mostly put it behind me as a first effort in bandom, and a cute enough little fic for what it was.

Fast forward.

This evening, I posted the sequel to Vampires. It's called You Only Hear the Music When Your Heart Begins to Break, and it's 13,700 words of high school fic set in the same universe.

There is really only one reason that this fic exists at all, and that's because [ profile] psuedo_catalyst asked me about what high school held for my Vampires versions of Frank and Gerard, and got me thinking about it, and then proceeded to be very excited every time I talked about it after that. (Which just goes to show that if you want fic from me, clearly the way to go about it is to actually ask me stuff when I post writing questions memes. XD )

Now, I LOVE that, okay, totally love that anyone would like my silly little fic enough to want a sequel that much. But I probably wouldn't have devoted a post to it, not really, but then [ profile] isweedan mentioned something very similar tonight on Twitter, and I just felt the need to post about it.

Because it's AWESOME, of course, but also a little weird to me, that people not only read my little elementary school AU, but really did like it, and even remember it.

I'm not even sure what the point of this post is, other than that I am mystified when stuff like this happens, because I don't think of myself as the sort of person whose fics people remember, or demand sequels to. So it's weird to me, but it also means so much, and makes me so happy when people tell me stuff like that.

So perhaps the point of this post is to encourage everyone: if you like someone's stuff, comment and say so.

I'm not going to claim I'm perfect at this myself, because I'm not. But even though it's not New Year's yet, I think I'm making that my resolution. I will try to be better about telling people when I really love their stories, because I know how much it means to me to hear things like that. It's amazing what the smallest comment can do to make someone feel good and happy and valued.

After seeing the TAI... show last night and actually getting to meet Mike, I am overcome with the need to show my love in a non-fourth-wall-breaking, non-creeptastic sort of way. SO! A picspam. Because the world needs to be aware that Mike Carden is a hugely adorable dork. <3
(Actual picspam is on my fic journal; sorry for the crossposting, those of you who are following both + [ profile] sodamnskippy!)

Last night, [ profile] zeenell, [ profile] psuedo_catalyst and I saw The Academy Is... in Portland, Maine, and it was maybe one of the best concerts I've been to. The venue was smaller than my apartment, and we were basically in the second/third row from the stage? Despite sitting with the parents for both of the openers. YEAH. Plus, we were on the Carden side of the stage, so I got to spend the show probably-not-so-sekritly admiring his Carden-ness. From about two feet away.

Guys, Mike really does have the dorkiest smile ever. Also he doesn't stand still on stage for more than a couple of seconds, and is clearly at least in guy-love with everyone in his band.

Ramblings about how awesome TAI... is under here! \0/ )

Okay, so now the bit everyone is actually here for: Pictures! \0/ Like I said, my pics with Mike (T____T) and Sisky (also T___T ) didn't come out, but my pic with Bill did, so yay! for that. =D And, y'know, I took all the other ones, so it's like I'm there in spirit. *gets her Tom Conrad on* Mostly the lighting was just really bad. Damn you, rotation of the Earth!! *shakes fist* But I tried to lighten these up in Photoshop enough that you can see them.

Pics under here! )

Post is public for the moment, but please don't swipe pics for re-posting anywhere, unless of course you are featured in said pictures. XD

OH SHIT I ALMOST FORGOT! Check out the ridiculously awesome ISWC membership card [ profile] psuedo_catalyst made me!!! Isn't it the most amazing thing in the history of things??

Zombies Ate Your Idols (They Were Delicious)

That's right. I committed bandom fic. *hangs head* Well, no going back now.

Title: Vampires Will Never Hurt You (But I Make No Promises About Zombies)
Author: [ profile] solar_cat
Fandom: Bandom | MCR
Pairing: Frank/Gerard pre-slash
Rating: G
Wordcount: 1420
Warnings: None that I can think of. Elementary school!AU? Is that a warning?

Summary: Gerard clenches his fists tighter. "It's a disease," he says defensively.

Notes: So I had this idea for a fic where Gerard and Frank are in elementary school and Gerard has this disease that makes him kind of like a vampire, but Frank thinks it's kind of cool and also Gerard draws pictures of zombie massacres. This would be that fic. XD Great liberties have been taken with the fabric of reality. Many, many thanks to [ profile] monroe_nell for the encouragement and for looking this over for me! <3

Seriously, you should watch out for zombies...

And hey, combining posts!
