Little Things by Umi

Table of Contents

If not explicitly stated otherwise in the title and/or summary, each drabble is a standalone and not connected to any of the other drabbles.


(Also "drabble = exactly 100 words" is a hill I am willing to die on.)


I'll put up warnings in case of rape and explicit suicide/death stuff, but aside from that: anything can happen.

6: Highschool Weekends

(not actually a drabble, just 81 words :/)

• PG

"Thanks, Chester, for ruining everything before Mike could ruin it. Or maybe you've just ruined it twice, who knows."

- this fic's Brad, at some point, probably



8: AU In Which Chester Left The Band - And Somehow Is Still Alive, Even (DOUBLE DRABBLE)

• PG

• Slice of Life

Some kid jumped off a bridge and Mike is thankful, because now he doesn't even have to say Sorry to that kid's therapist for having been a massive dick.



9: A Private Ceremony Then, I Guess

• PG

• Drama

It's not like Bennoda was the only interesting ship out there - those two idiots are just too damn good at being spotlight snatching, dramatic attention whores. That's all.



10: Prequel to "A Private Ceremony Then, I Guess"

• PG

• Drama

tfw u don't love urself enough to not spend ur life pining for someone who won't kiss u unless they're too wasted to even spell their own name anymore #relatable (not)



11: Another Prequel to "A Private Ceremony Then, I Guess"

• G

• idk, Slice of Life/Romance/Friendship?

Odd college kids feeling odd and not quite good at adulting and socializing together.



12: Chop Suey

• PG

• Drama

In which Mike chokes on his own fear and Talinda lets him.



13: Brad Likes Their New Singer

• G

• Slice of Life

Mike wanted a blank canvas, but got a possible friend and equal instead. He's not happy. But Brad is.



14: Someone Has To Do It, Okay?

• PG

• Slice of Life

Brad might not be into sex, but sometimes the result is worth the effort.



15: The Fractured Hip Might Become A Problem In The Long Run, Though

• PG

• Romance (the idiot way)

The lights of the ambulance made his head spin and it took forever for the painkillers to kick in, but aside from that he was... okay...ish.



16: Highschool AU | Mike Gets What He Deserves

• PG

• Slice of Life

He will probably turn into a decent dude later in his life, but that won't magically erase the damage he already did with his bullying. And the fact that he's bi and closeted himself doesn't change a fucking thing either.



17: Dancing In The Dark

• PG

• Slice of Life

#ThatAwkwardMomentWhen u and ur daughter are kind of into same guy.



18: You Had Jesus On Your Breath And I Caught Him In Mine

• PG

• ???

Throwback to that time I read about this actually having happened and didn't download the fucking concert review. And then Chuz joined STP and it became impossible to google it again.



19: Tired (DOUBLE DRABBLE)

• PG

• Drama, Slice of Life

Mike values having all the right in the world to feel as betrayed as he wants more than life itself. Which, granted, doesn’t mean much these days. But it’s enough.



20: The Things You Do For Art

• PG

• Slice of Life

"If I go for a few days without doing something creative, I get weird. I get crazy."



21: A Rat In A Cage

• PG

• Drama

Did you know? Happy rats prefer sugar water over coke.



22: And Yet Another Prequel to "A Private Ceremony then, I guess"

• PG

• maybe Bennoda is its own genre, idk (they're so dumb, I love them)

Mike appreciates that they never talk about it. He has better things to do than deal with Chester's internalized homophobia. Like gently nibbling on his lower lip. Maybe a bit of grinding, too.



23: Fugue | Thanksgiving 2017

• PG

• Drama

Everything has been too much recently. So Mike just walks away.



24: Fugue | February 11th 2018 [DOUBLE DRABBLE]

• G

• Drama

Mike frowns at the Wikipedia page on 'Dissociative Fugue'. "What the fuck, I thought that only happened in soap operas!?"



25: Sober | Prequel/Side Story to "A Private Ceremony Then, I Guess" [DOUBLE DRABBLE]

• R

• Drama, Angst, Songfic

It's not that Chester doesn't love him back. It's just that you can't only kiss someone when they hate themselves for over 10 years, and then expect them to not associate your kisses with their self hate.



26: Side Story to "A Happy End" (= one of my standalone fics)

• G

• Drama

Talinda tries her best not to give in to resignation, but it's hard when no one around her learned a fucking thing from what happened. "Talk to someone" they all tweet but then choke on their own problems because they "don't want to worry her", because "it isn't easy for her either". Awesome. Totally not exactly the kind of shit that got them into this mess in the first place.



27: A Midsummer Night's Dream

• PG

• Drama

It’s the party of the year, and since Talinda’s a playmate and her boyfriend’s a rockstar, it’s only natural he’s passed out behind the grotto in his own vomit by 1 a.m.



28: "I Love My Mom, She's All I Have, I Will Never Leave Her"

• G

• Drama

Sam is at it again with the drama. So yeah, another drabble loosely based on it + on stuff I've seen happening elsewhere.



29: On Tour With The Tasty Snax

• PG

• Slice of Life

Don't bite the hand - or dick - that feeds.



30: "It All Basically Started With Me And My Friend Mark Making Music Together For Fun..."

• G

• Drama

They were surprisingly fair and gave them several months to make a decision. The result doesn't sound all too bad even, it sounds like room for possibilities and maybe even optimism. But in reality it's just soothing words for an end to something, for a crumbling world that finally caves in.



31: Something Rotten [TRIPLE DRABBLE]

• PG

• Drama

Alternative title: Guilty By Association. Everyone likes to think they and the people they're drawn to are the exception to the rule. (the topic is rape, but nothing explicit)



32: So Apparently Autopsy Reports Are Public Record In The State Of California

• PG

• Drama

He's been doing this kind of stuff to himself ever since the first time he accepted that it might actually be true: Going through old photographs and murmuring the words "he's dead", going through almost all of his twitter mentions, looking at every fan memorial post, every work of art dedicated to Chester's memory.

All to force his mind to finally wrap itself around the fact that this was reality - this was the world he was living in now - in the hopes that it might help him move on.

Still: A coroners notes on where and how he cut open Chester's corpse was... maybe not something he needed to see.



33: I Wanted To Post A Less Dark Drabble Next But Then Mike Was Sad On Instagram and WELP

• PG

• Drama

Mike likes himself a nice party with friends to get his mind off things every once in a while. Except that his mind doesn't give a fuck about what he wants anymore.

- kind of a sequel to "Tired" but works as a standalone as well.



34: Picking Up The Pieces, Now Where To Begin [NO DRABBLE BUT A FICLET]

• G

• Drama

The guys meet up to decide the future of the band.
