[P!ATD – Ryan/Brendon] zarah5 & softlyforgotten – In Case the Scene Gets Nasty
I love the cliche of Brendon and Ryan hating each other and this fic was hurt-y and awesome in the best way. XP I love all the misunderstandings and how they grew and changed. I felt so bad about Brendon’s situation, but he’s so strong to be able to make it on his own. I felt horrible about how alone Brendon was and how much he has to do to make ends meet. And it broke my heart how much he loved his family, missed them, and how Kara was his only connection to his family. And the encounter with his dad was so painful. =( And then there was Ryan, with his denial, and it’s kind of cute how he just wants and he’s willing to go across the country for Brendon but is too scared to say that he loves him, haha. And really, the ending was kind of perfect for this fic (even if I’d want more fluff, but that wasn’t the tone of the fic, so it works).
