That was amazing! I love reading all these different Gerards. I like that we're now starting to see through his shell. But he seems to be getting progressively weaker, as if something inside is killing him (which there probably is...). Poor Mikey, the kid is so lost and scared for his brother. And Frank... I don't even know. He's always been so honest but now he seems so afraid of his feelings towards Gerard, yet he's desperate for his Gerard to come back.
It was extremely well written. Can't believe you've been writing this and I've been reading it for a whole year. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRY TO ESCAPE THE INEVITABLE!!
