It came so suddenly.
Bert missed him, almost as much as he missed Bert.
Gerard is young and dumb, and his choice of lover will lead him to make mistakes that may cost him his life.
"BEFORE THE HAPPENING, my life was impossibly mundane. My universe was unfathomably small, strung together by a few measly, attenuated strings of fate ready to snap at any given moment.
The sinew of the bone in the skeletal shell that was my life was fading fast, and quickly it would have rendered me as stuck and brittle as that desiccated skull we saw in biology class. In other words, my life was oh so tragically stagnant, and I was the bug caught in the web of complexities. The measly, preyed-upon bug, stuck for eternity.
And then I met Frank."
When Gerard is assigned an English project in which he has to write a compelling essay, he becomes determined to get the best grade in the class. No more 'just average Gerard,' no. He was determined to win. When he crosses paths with the new kid, a selectively mute boy named Frank Iero, he knows exactly how to win over the teacher's praise.
"Gerard Way, the boy who got a mute kid to talk," he could practically see it headlining every newspaper across New Jersey.
Frank was just a test subject, Gerard couldn't possibly bring himself to care about him, let alone fall for him.
For years, Frank had been wondering how he would die; constantly asking himself when it would be, how it would happen, and if there would be anyone around to care.
Trapped within the haze of a funerary daydream, he receives one answer: a boy, sat grief-stricken at his headstone.
