    Summary

    In which Brian and Freddie, joined by a dedicated John, continue Roger's subterfuge to make their album despite mounting costs and Smile discovers all's fair in love and music.

    Daily doses of swearing, hourly infusions of tea, gratuitous use of commas, stray apostrophes, run on sentences, fabulousness courtesy of Freddie - all told through Brian's rather jumbled POV.

    Thank you for flying AU Airlines, where stories are stretched to the limits and the food's come far!

    Summary

    Freddie, Roger, Brian and John are in self-imposed exile at Rockfield Studios to record "A Night at the Opera."

    It's a very inconvenient time for the world to end.

    ***

    The anchor says, “At approximately 11:15pm, on Thursday the 28th of August, 1975, an asteroid will collide with the Earth. Nothing is expected to survive.”

    The bottom of reality falls out.

    Freddie slams his hand down on the radio, silencing it. It is 6:01pm, on Tuesday the 26th of August, 1975.

    “All a bit fucking cliché, isn’t it dears?”

    Summary

    Roger has a secret. And Brian is determined to find out what it is. Even if it means kicking the fucking door from the bathroom, where Roger locks himself up, down.


    „I'm seriously going to piss myself.“

    „Oh my god, then go somewhere else!“

    „Just open the fucking door!“

    „If you run, you'll make it to another toilet!“

    „I literally need to go right now!“

    „Brian!“

    „Roger!“

    Summary

    This collection of ficlets and drabbles comes from prompts I got from tumblr or other places. They include ships and no ships, too. I'll post the rating and any relevant info at the beginning of each chapter. Each chapter stands alone and is not interconnected with the rest. Some have a bit of humor and some are more romantic.

    Summary

    "To be fair to him, if he’s qualified on anything it’s guitars.”

    “Yeah, ‘spose I can give him that one. I guess you have to know a lot about the things to bloody build one.”

    “I didn’t know he’d built one.”

    And suddenly, inexplicably, their pocket in the bustle of Kensington Market becomes pin-drop quiet. The shift is so that it makes Freddie frown and lose count of the coins. He looks up at Roger, who is staring at him with wide, interrogative eyes.

    “You’re joking, right?”

    Summary

    In which Brian and Freddie, tugging along a hesitant John, embroil Roger in an exciting opportunity and Smile find themselves caught in the business of music.

    Is there swearing? Will tea be drunk? Have you been reading this series? Please find within gratuitous use of commas, stray apostrophes, run on sentences, fabulousness courtesy of Freddie - all told through Brian's rather jumbled POV.

    Still your friendly neighbourhood AU. Not quite that AU in that you'll not find people with glowing eyes and strange powers running amok, but yep. AU as anything.

    Summary

    The year is 1927, Charles Lindbergh has just successfully crossed the Atlantic on a first solo non-stop flight. Brian May is an aviation engineer looking for a team of his own, a team wild enough to try something no one has succeeded yet: the westbound flight over the Atlantic.

    Enter Roger Taylor, the daring pilot, John Deacon, the Jack of all trades, and finally, Freddie Mercury, the newspaperman with the business proposal that might change it all.

    Summary

    Brian surprises himself immensely by waking up.

    He remembers the cold feeling of inevitability on the floor of the doctor’s office, and the way the fluorescent lights had turned celestial, and the feeling of a book being closed and expelling dust into the surrounding air.

    “Well, this is a bonus,” he mumbles.

    “Ah!” a triumphant voice says into the darkness, fairly close to his ear. “Knew I’d win. Come on mate, do I get eyes as well? I’ve got twenty quid on this.”

    Summary

    In which Brian and Freddie, aided by a concerned John, come to realise rock 'n' roll bands and the expectations thereof, are sometimes unforgiving on teenage drummers and Smile faces their next hurdle.

    Yes, there is swearing! Of course there is tea to be drunk. Why would you ask? There is also gratuitous use of commas, stray apostrophes, run on sentences, fabulousness courtesy of Freddie - all told through Brian's rather jumbled POV.

    Super Roger! Look at him fly! See him leap tall buildings in a single bound! Watch in awe as he bends iron bars with barely a flex of his mighty muscles! For what reason? Who knows? He just does these things. Bloody menace, he is. Just checking anyone's reading these. No superpowers, actually, but still as AU as anything!

    Summary

    Brian considers giving a name to the anxiety that gnaws at his gut.

    He decides against it, because he doesn’t want to get too attached.

    Because it is a horrible thing, truly horrible. It squirms and burrows and nibbles. It chomps and bites and grinds. It demands space to luxuriate in his stomach and sends whatever goes down swiftly back up again. It disapproves of uncleanness and fires disinfectant through his body, which melts his fat and muscle and brain cells away.

    It’s that last thing that’s the worst, because it melts enough to render him useless, but not enough for him to be unaware of the fact.

    He needs to do better.

    Summary

    On his fourth day in hospital, Brian stays awake for a whole hour.

    Freddie sends a single red rose in congratulations.

    It is carried into his room on a plastic tray, by two gloved hands on the end of disposable scrubs. Brian cannot tell if the eyes above the thick, white mask are kind.

    He hopes they aren’t, because at least then he isn’t losing anything to the isolation.

    Summary

    Brian was lucid as the plane took off, lucid enough to suck on a sweet so that his ears didn’t pop and to have watched the buildings reduce to atoms before his straining eyes.

    Lucid enough to watch as John (across the aisle) spoke in a low voice to one of the flight attendants. She turned around and caught his eye briefly, then turned away with something teetering between concern and embarrassment in her eyes. Then she nodded.

    Lucid enough to mumble “Well this is in no way mortifying,” into a full sick-bag and lucid enough to hear Roger ask for, “More of those please… loads more.”

    The fever hit at 35,000 feet.

    It broke every bone in his body, meticulously and methodically. The scientist in Brian was almost impressed.
