Not!fic Catholic!Frank/Artist!Gerard

Title: Not!fic Catholic!Frank/Artist!Gerard
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Sena
Reader: [personal profile] knight_tracer

Fandom: MCR
Pairing: Frank/Gerard
Rating: Mature
Length: 2:34:04
Summary: 'I'm working on another story where teenage Frank is like, "Man, fuck the Catholic church for telling me I'm not supposed to like cock." And while writing it, I got this image in my head of a different Frank, a Frank who, like, really had faith in God and who was struggling to be the kind of person the church would approve of.

I tried writing it, but quickly realized that it was just way too big for me. Like, if I actually tried to do it justice it would take me years, and I don't really have that sort of work ethic. So it became a not!fic. Yay?'

Links: mp3:1 2 OR m4b

Notes: I love this fic so much! I am not religious, but I found that the emotions and pain conveyed to be incredibly beautiful and relatable. I don't eat meat, so the food talk in this fic pleases me greatly too. I love how amazing all the characters are, Frank's mum was a delight to read and I would pay CASH money for a Gabe/Mikey side story/sequel now. Extra special thanks to [personal profile] argentumlupine!!!!

I was re-reading this fic yesterday and I whined to my sister that I need a podfic version of it so I can take it with me and listen to it whenever I want and OH MY GOD. My day suddenly improved a lot. :D *grabs download link*

This is definitely a fic that was calling out for a podfic! So, I'm glad you agree. I hope you enjoy it and that it lives up to expectations.

lkdsjfldks I am so so so excited to listen to this you don't even know, relgion!fic is one of my favourite genres.

\o/ I am really pleased that you are excited. Religion!fic is brilliant if done well, and here the author has done an excellent job.

So it took me a while to listen to this, but it was really, really worth it. I am religious, or at least I used to be, and this fic gets me in a lot of places. The emotions hit even harder aurally and you're already pretty spectacular at emotion, so. Gabe's speech and Mikey's breakdown were probably the most powerful, but even the smaller scenes were just so well done. And the ending! I ended with the stupidest grin on my face, so you did an amazing job. This is going under the for a good cry and the cheer up playlist and probably also the inspirational one too. ♥♥♥

The emotions in this story are SO complex and affect me deeply, so I am really pleased you connected to it. I'm not religious, but this fic makes me believe in Frank. Gabe's speech was so much everything I wanted to say, and Mikey always gives me so many FEELINGS. I don't think I could record something which didn't end with a smile. Thanks so much for listening and taking the time to comment. xxxx

Just finished listening to this on a long drive and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I really love sena's story and you did it justice...OMG so many feeeeeelings. I think listening to you read this made things that much more real for me. I'm not a big fic crier, but Gabe's speech nearly got me, more so in this recorded version than in my initial reading. I feel like I need to go back and leave another comment on the fic too just because hearing this highlighted for me how it is such an awesome and complex and thoughtful story. Thanks :DDD

Awww thank you! Gabe's speech is so great, it sums up so many of my own feelings, but it's still so GABE. I'm really pleased that you feel that my reading has brought out aspects of the fic you didn't realise were present before. I agree with you that the story is so awesome and complex and thoughtful, so I am over the moon that you feel that I brought all that out in my reading!
Thanks for commenting.
