Example Fanworks

  • Adsorption by skoosiepants, the original Mike Carden/Kevin Jonas story: “Skippy here’s a virgin,” Carden says, tugging Kevin down into the seat next to him. He’s been doing that all day, pushing him around, like he’s some sort of circus freak or trained dog or something.
  • Playing Guitars by savvygambols, Mike Carden/Chislett gen: Butcher walks in while Brendon’s studying and hisses, “Dude, Mike and the Chiz are playing guitars.”
  • Someone to Grow Old With by rsadelle, Mike Carden/William Beckett: He wanted kids, plural, but Bill and Evie will be enough, will be something he's wanted for longer than he can think about.
  • with a bang by inlovewithnight, Mike Carden/Tom Conrad reunion: Tom didn't expect to run into Mike again. Like, ever.
