Jeez, you know how to make sad endings. Gerard's gonna feel like crap when he finds out about his lung.
And Frank??? I can understand why he may feel the need to leave, obviously he's convinced that he caused the whole "Jess is a maniac" thing. But you have to have him leave a note or something, they can't just fall apart, they're friends!
You seriously rock at writing, and I am ultimately jealous.
Waiting for the update grudgingly...
