My Chemical RomancePairing:
Possible triggers for rape and/or sexual assault and related traumas. There is NOT
explicit sexual content of any kind. Also, substance abuse, victim blaming and mild descriptions of depression. And a heterosexual main pairing.
Summary: “You touched me like you expected me to touch you back, even though I never did. You’ve always treated me like I’m okay. And that makes me feel okay.”My Chemical Romance, still unknown and fresh out of the Jersey scene, need a keyboardist. Stella Anderson, while perhaps not happy to, is willing to help out an old friend. One thing leads to another and, before she knows it, Stel is a part of the band. She never meant to get invested, not when she's enough of a mess as it is, but My Chem is one good thing she can't let go of.
There are a lot of people to thank for this fic, people who without it wouldn't exist or be any good. My amazing betas were vanilla_fiend
especially deserves thanks for turning around an entire beta in a day. delphinapterus
read this when it was still largely unfinished and was a massive help when it came to plotting. Massive thanks to the bandombigbang
mods, who were very lovely and wonderful even when I couldn't follow the rules. /o\. Thanks guys.
Massive props to amkave
, my artist, and lemniciate
, my mixer, who made amazing bonus content that I'm so fantastically happy with I have no words.
This is probably one of the most self-indulgent things I’ve ever written. It is, after all, a female OC. It’s also a story that gripped me from the very beginning. Writing has been amazing. When I first started writing it I wrote 10,000 words in under a week. I have taken every effort to have Stella be a proper character. But I’m warning you super in advance. There’s a female original character. With something of a badfic premise. You’ve been warned.
I take trigger warnings very seriously and have tried to treat this topic with the sensitivity that it deserves. If you feel that I have not adequately warned or have been disrespectful in any way I would very much like for you to private message me or leave an anonymous comment here and I will do my best to address your concerns.
For vanilla_fiend .
I miss you.
Every single one of us is twisted by design / And dispatches from the back of my mind / Say as long as we're here everything is alright.
