    Summary

    When the Wunderlich family moves from New York to Newport Beach, Tony's sure his outcast status will only grow. But when he meets Lindsay Bluth, a former cheerleader suffering from a fall from grace, they form a friendship both of them needed and didn't expect.

    And it's kind of cool that her older brother, Gob, happens to be really, really hot.

    An AU very loosely based off of Daria.

    Summary

    Gob would always look forward to the day after Thanksgiving, because that was when Christmas really started. That Friday, his mom would have people come over to put up a big, fake tree in their living room. Suddenly, the neat, crisp, and perfect designs in the house disappeared and the place would be covered with twinkling lights, holly, and even mistletoe. Stockings were hung by the fireplace with care, like out of that weird poem everyone liked to read during the year.

    But what Gob loved the most was the music.

    Snapshots of the most important Christmases in the life of pianist George "Gob" Bluth II, from the good to the bad and everything in between.

    Summary

    While it had gotten a few holes over the years that Gob had to sew up himself, he still took Lindsay’s old stuffed dove with him on every trip. It was stupid, and he knew that, but it was his symbol of flight, of happiness, of freedom. Just having a moment with it made him calm down. He wasn’t stuck in Newport. He was just there for a little bit, just for this dumb party and then his recital, and then he could leave again. It was fine.

    He was fine.

    A continuation of Étude Op. 25, no. 2 in F minor, a world where Gob became a pianist, with a Blunder endgame.

    Summary

    Once they were finally completely offstage, Gob laid back against the couch as he tried to process what he had seen. That man was everything Gob wanted to be. He wanted to work a crowd like that. He wanted to play like that. He wanted to move people and give people goosebumps and maybe classical music wasn’t something that got people to scream and cheer, but maybe he could make them do that. After all, he had just started learning about this guy named Franz Liszt who was apparently, like, Beatles-level huge back in the 1800s. Maybe Gob could be like the new Franz Liszt.

    Or maybe the Freddie Mercury of classical music.

    Snapshots in the life of pianist Gob Bluth and how the music and life of Queen and Freddie Mercury inspired him over the years.

    Summary

    Gob couldn’t remember the first time he and his siblings had jammed together. But he distinctly remembers the first time they really clicked.
    It was severely disjointed, and in all honesty not very good. Michael didn’t know all of the chords, Lindsay didn’t know all of the words, and Buster was really just tapping his hand on the table.
    But, somehow, something worked.

    Summary

    It has always been Gob's mission to get his best friend, Tony, laid before they graduate high school - and it's not weird to want his best friend to have a good time with the right girl. But when Tony deviates from Gob's plan, Gob has no choice but to recruit his siblings into breaking up Tony and the girl who is obviously so wrong for him.

    But, again, it's not weird or anything.

    Summary

    "If anyone had been watching the boy, they definitely would’ve noted how strange the scene was. It was strange since Gob was always loud. He was always breaking things, hitting things, tearing things apart, and making a mess. But something about this intimidating but beautiful instrument was making him gentle. He wanted to be gentle. He never wanted to be gentle with anyone, even his baby brother—you try to throw your brother one time and everyone freaks out—but the piano was so shiny and pretty and special."

    A series of Gob's coming of age in a world where he turned to a more "respectable" art form - piano.

    (Raised to Mature rating for some mild descriptions of sexual acts.)
