    Summary

    Joe is prepared for the Reaping, he thinks. He hopes. Every year it has to happen; every time it's been the same.

    But this is different. This is the first Reaping for his little brother John, and this time the rules are changed: two males can be sent into the Arena.

    Happy Hunger Games. Yeah, right.

    Summary

    After a show, at the end of a tour, there is a penchant for loneliness. Even when feeling lonely, though, Brian May has a friend he can trust.

    (Or, a story that takes place after my piece entitled "The Other Half" that can be read alone wherein Brian asks Roger to go with him for a picturesque drive)

    Summary

    Brian May is a perfectionist. Everybody knows that, if they know even the tiniest bit about his musical repertoire and time with Queen. Yet he is also surprisingly so upon a movie set, which the actors in Bohemian Rhapsody found out.

    And a certain erstwhile bassist realises how closely Brian must have used to watch him while he was performing. He wonders why Brian would know so much, and pay attention, not to mention recall after all the intervening years.

    Brian has his reasons, and he wants to show John how much he (and Roger) still care about him.

    Summary

    “What is it?” He asked with a quiet voice.

    “Don’t be too mad that I didn’t tell you earlier but- “

    “You didn’t have to mention that, now I’m worried.”

    “Right. Um... so I received a call from the owner last week. He’s hiking up the rent fees by thirty percent.”

    “What- “

    “You heard that right. I think we’re in deep trouble. Neither of us have the time to work overtime. You know that right? That means we are going to have to share- “

    “I’ll work four extra hours every day.”

    “Shut your stupid mouth Bri. You can’t, you’ll only drive yourself insane. That is not happening!”

    “Neither am I sharing my room with some stranger from college!”

    OR

    That rent hike=moving in together story no one asked for.

    Summary

    "Well son, I'll tell you--life for me ain't been no crystal stair." - Langston Hughes

     

    The boys of Bohemian Rhapsody have a good bit of knowledge about their living counterparts, and are learning more about the members of Queen each and every day. It is wonderful to connect to somebody in a deep way by virtue of shared experience.

    And yet, if there is not something shared in background, there remains the possibility of shared understanding. Gwilym Lee has learned about the former. As for the latter... Well, suffice to say differences in sensibility are things that Ben Hardy has yet to get used to.

    (Or, in which Brian is quite an emotive individual when it comes to Gwil, whereas Roger has a far different approach to his interactions with Ben.)

    Summary

    In 1974, Queen recorded the album Sheer Heart Attack. But with Brian May recovering from hepatitis, only to relapse with an ulcer a few months later, getting this album done will be a trial to determine the future of the band.

    A story about the making of Sheer Heart Attack with focus on Brian getting hospitalized a second time. Each chapter is inspired by one of the songs from the album.

    Summary

    Making it through this crazy life with Melina and Sharon.

    It is surprising, the types of love that a person can find even when not actively searching for that sort. But friendships are born in various places between the most unsuspecting of persons. And those who don't expect ever to gain others' love are often the ones who need it the most.

    (Or, fifteen snapshots taken over the course of the life of friendship between Freddie Mercury and Elton John.)

    Summary

    It's been nearly a year since Roger moved to San Francisco and Brian finally finds the time to go and visit him. Once he's there though, Roger admits he's told everyone that he and Brian were together. Brian reassures him that it's fine, that he had no problem pretending to be Roger's boyfriend for the two weeks that he was there.

    Oh wait, Brian forgot to mention that he was actually in love with Roger.

    Summary

    No I'll never look back in anger... - John Deacon, 'Need Your Loving Tonight'

    John Deacon is attempting to readjust to a life with Roger and Brian in it. And Joe will not stop begging them to do karaoke with him and the rest of the Bohemian Rhapsody boys, just once.

    "It can be a private session, just the seven of us," he wheedles. "It would be so awesome to see you guys performing." He leaves out the words together again, but the sentiment remains; it hangs in the air nonetheless, like an invisible cloud of smoke.

    "You have GOT to be joking, Joe," Roger says flatly before anyone else has the chance to speak. "...No sodding way!"

    Summary

    He nodded again, feeling so shitty for making the three of them worry so much. He didn't think it would've been that big of a deal, to be honest. Roger stayed over at other people's places all the time. Freddie was once gone for the whole weekend before they started to worry. But, Brian realized, he wasn't Roger or Freddie. He didn't go out like they did. He certainly didn't have sex like they did.

     

    There’s an attempted heart-to-heart, Brian makes some mistakes, and Roger and John still have no idea how to help.

    Summary

    "We were worried you had done something stupid," Roger whispered, then pressed a kiss to his temple, "the bartender overheard your conversation with Daniel and decided to tell us."

    There is a second of silence, and then a sob escapes Roger, "God fucking damn it, we were so scared, Brimi. We thought we had lost you."

    Summary

    Brian loved Roger. He really did. Roger was no doubt the love of his life. But sometimes, Roger was just too much. He was good for a fun time, and he always made him feel better, and he was most certainly was an expert in bed. But some days, Roger was also known to be obnoxious.

    Very, very obnoxious.

    And, well, everyone has a breaking point eventually.

    **************************

    Or: Brian and Roger have their first "real" fight. I know that this prompt is overwritten, but I couldn't help myself!
