Title: The Cure to Growing Older
Summary: What-if AU. What if Joe had never moved to Ohio first?
Author: [profile] icedmaple
Betas: [profile] satsuma_grove, [personal profile] likethepaint, [profile] xdearlin & [personal profile] shiny_starlight. [profile] ashe_frost and [personal profile] musictoyourlips also fielded questions about US schooling. [profile] satsuma77 suggested the name for this fic.
Rating: PG-13+ for language and teenagers being awkward and doing what teenagers do.
Pairing: Joe/Patrick
Words: c.26,000
Author's notes: This fic is for [profile] decembersrose in the [profile] slutrick challenge. It is way delayed, so I hope it lives up to expectations!

This fic is realistic AU so I've had to bend a few historical factors – I hope that doesn't shake it up too much for anyone.

I did a fucking TON of research for this fic – both looking at online schooling information and asking people who live over there. I've done my best to make it as accurate as possible. Apologies for any inconsistencies.

Disclaimer: Could not have happened because there's this place called Ohio, apparently...

Title: Hedonism
Summary: "People started to filter away, glancing back with looks of disbelief at the mess and the men in the midst of it all."
Author: [personal profile] rosiedoes
Betas: [personal profile] shiny_starlight, [ profile] shinko, [ profile] likethepaint, and [ profile] ashe_frost all did varying degrees of hand-holding for this fic. I can't thank them enough.
Rating: Pushing R. Possibly.
Pairing: Joe/Patrick, Pete/Patrick, implied Pete/Ashlee.
Words: c.27,300.
Author's notes: This is a fic set at the end of the European Spring Tour and heading into HCT, where it breaks off and becomes an AU timeline.

The title of this fic, and the quote, come from a track by Skunk Anansie. In a bizarre twist (this was not intentional at all), they have a track perfect for each of the boys in this fic's POV:

Secretly [Joe] | Hedonism [Patrick] | Brazen [Pete]

This is a LONG fic. Sit comfortably.

Disclaimer: I really hope this isn't even slightly real, for the sake of the people involved in it...

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
-Inigo Montoya [The Princess Bride]

NOTE: Don't go looking for this quote in the text. You won't find a literal interpretation.

Hedonism. Just because you feel good, doesn't make you right. )
