    Summary

    "The Midwest could get on your nerves because of the sheer repetition of everything and every town is so much like the others. And you did feel like you were in a cultural vacuum sometimes. All we had was bad televisions and vibrating beds --even worse-- and, ah, bad food. But it was still a lot of fun, haha. There was no sex and drugs and that... there wasn't really much sex--well, there wasn't much drugs." - Roger Taylor

     

     

    (Or, while on the 1977 world tour for their album A Day At The Races, the members of Queen learn a few things of interest about the American Midwest. And about themselves.)

    Summary

    A curse as old as time passed on from generation to generation, this unfortunate curse befalls on our dear cinnamon roll, John. In addition to being a quiet and reserved person and as soft as a flower, he doesn’t like to party even though he is Queen’s bassist. But what his band mates don’t know is that John has multiple personalities that only manifests whenever he is terrified. He keeps them suppressed by taking his pills but on one fateful day, he runs out of them and Queen’s performance was up next.

    Summary

    This is a collection of short one shots that show little moments "shared" by the band and explores a bit the dynamics between them. A mix of movie and real life events, mostly. Each chapter is unrelated and will have all the relevant information in the notes.

    Chapter IV: Some problems cannot be solved, but a quiet night in and the company and support of someone you love can be enough sometimes.

    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

    But life still goes on; I can't get used to living without, living without, living without you by my side... I don't want to live alone, no! - John Deacon, 'I Want To Break Free'

     

    John Deacon is playing 'The Show Must Go On' with his band brothers and Freddie's dear friend Elton, and he knows what he has to do.

    Summary

    Fred gets a bad flu. John and Roger try to take care of him but are abysmal at best-- Roger burns soup and almost singes a cat and Deacy runs around with bedclothes tented over his head until Brian arrives to save the day.

    (Or, it is late summer/early fall of 1982 and after the Hot Space tour in America Freddie gets incredibly sick. It is entirely possible this sickness was the original inception of his HIV/AIDS symptoms.)

     
     

     

    Includes some swearing.

    Chapters 10 and 11 in particular include medical situations that could potentially be frightening or triggering to some readers. I will also be including some references to an abusive relationship and to drug use in later chapters, so please be warned and read responsibly.

    Summary

    "Roger knelt there, holding his best friend tightly to his chest. He breathed in the scent of flowers and spices, his shoulder was soaked by Freddie’s tears and he made a decision. Gently, he pulled back and cupped Freddie’s face in his hands, looking him right in the eye.
    “No matter what happens,” he swore. “No matter what comes our way, I won’t leave you. I’ll never let anyone hurt you; we’re family and I swear, Freddie, I’ll protect you.”"

    Roger once made a promise to himself: protect Freddie Mercury. Over the years he's never quite felt like he's lived up to it. However if you asked Freddie, he'd tell you a different story.

    A study in the unbreakable bond between one Roger Taylor and one Freddie Mercury over the years.

    Summary

    "Ah Hell," Roger finally said. "We all know that Freddie can seduce anything this side of a week-old corpse. But you....umm....well, mate, to be perfectly honest...."

    John narrowed his icy gaze on the drummer and guitarist. "But you thought I couldn't *keep up* sexually with Freddie?"

    Or...

    Where John puts his idiot overprotective big brothers in their place.

    AU Setting modern times. The lads are famous, but like to still share one big house. Brian and Roger are straight, and not in any serious relationships. Freddie is Freddie. John has very over protective big brothers, so its not like he gets much of any opportunity.......but he is a delicate English Rose, so....
