    He wasn't a king anymore, but that didn't mean he'd lost his powers.
    His family was missing. Roger was determined to find them all again, and bring them home.

    Summary

    Roger would say he is smart, that he can write songs like nobody else and he would reply saying that Freddie does it better, that’s why they should use more of his songs. Then he would say “you are an astrophysicist, nothing can beat it, you can nail everything you do, you are good with numbers and words, it’s amazing”. But these are just lies, he is not good, he does somethings, he has a graduation, and he knows Roger says those things because…

    Summary

    Bowie dropped by and we did some work in the studio.

    The writing and recording of 'Under Pressure' on a whim, which Roger has strong feelings about, in which John completely forgets his killer bassline, there isn't a guitar solo to be found, and what gets shown off isn't what was expected to be.

    (Or, the realisation that 'Under Pressure', while a very recognisable song in its own way, does not sound like a typical piece by Queen)

    Summary

    Confidence can hide fear and insecurities. Freddie has a part of himself he's been trying to mask, struggling to accept for years. No one must know, not even Roger.

    Roger has never doubted his heterosexuality, and Freddie is his best friend. But confidence can make way for uncertainties and questions about the way one views boys.

    Late February 1975, during the Sheer Heart Attack tour in the USA, is when things start to change.

    Summary

    "We wrote all the songs for this album in about a week, which is great, because then we could get right back into recording."

     

    A series of instances for Queen during and around recording the News of the World album, both studio time and song inspiration.

    Summary

    "Among all the trash was a pregnancy test and as Brian stared at Freddie, it clicked.

    Freddie hadn’t brought anyone home, or stayed the night with anyone- how could he, when the world took one look at the mark on his neck and thought he was taken? There was, by all logic, only one person he could have slept with.

    Brian and Deacy had both been away a month ago…

    Roger."

    OR: one drunken, impulsive night changes everything, leaving Roger and Freddie with a lot of feelings to sort out.

    Summary

    It was only to be expected that their party would receive a noise complaint. It was only expected, really, that the police would show up. Freddie was prepared to keep his head down and get this not so little lecture over with as quickly as possible.

    But Freddie's not prepared to let another Alpha with an over-inflated ego put his hands on him.

     

    (Otherwise known as: the time Freddie gave a police officer weed.)

    Summary

    Freddie's family offered him up as a sacrifice of sorts; a bargaining chip, a toy. Something to amuse and please the Emperor.

    What no one expected was for the Emperor and his Empresses to propose marriage instead.

    Summary

    History won't care at all, unless we force the people to, my darlings! Take the bull by the horns!

    (Or, I was asked to write about Live Aid '85 and so I shall deliver. A sort of addendum to a previous piece - see work this was inspired by - but can also be read standalone)

    More work for the Freddie Mercury first person POV challenge I've heard is happening in early June

    Summary

    That's what he loved about his boyfriends' rough sessions in bed. The aftermath, the quiet moment after in which he could dedicate his full attention to pampering his boyfriends as much as his heart desired, the clenching of his heart as he allowed himself to watch them openly, and relish in the fact that he was in love with them.

    Summary

    "...I knew it, I've always known it, I don't look right, Roger."

    "What the fuck are you on about, Bri?"

    "I'm just a-- can't put myself together properly, not like you, or John, and especially not Freddie." Brian lifts his eyes and looks piteously up at Roger from under his mussed midnight fringe. "I'm either stodgy businessman or awkward swan, and there's nothing I can do about it."

    "What?" Roger's lips tremble as his eyes sparkle with suppressed laughter. "What're you talking about, Brian? You're like me, and there's no reason to be buggered about it--you're just a giant girl!"

    (Or, Brian is insecure about his looks onstage and amongst people, and Roger informs him of a few things)

    Summary

    It shouldn’t be this easy. It’s never this easy. Freddie knows; he’s been searching for this life for as long as he can remember, something small and quiet and perfect, something loving, and it’s not the sort of thing you can find on a Wednesday afternoon at Waitrose.

    Brian's a single dad with three kids, Freddie's an artist with seven cats. The movie practically writes itself.

    Summary

    The alarm clock displayed the date: September, 5th 1992. It was his birthday. What was he doing in an empty room at Roger’s on the afternoon of his birthday, without any memory of how he got there Freddie thought. He should have been at Garden Lodge, preparing a fabulous party. That made no sense.
