Author: midnightcancer
Pairing: Gerard/Frank + Gerard/OMC

A/N: Being a prologue and all, this is a rather short piece but I know you'll enjoy it anyway <3



His smile is wide and bright so long as the curtains are open. Once they close, however, he turns into someone else – a person different from any of the characters he plays on stage. He turns into himself. But that's not who Gerard wants to be. He doesn't want to be himself – he wants to be someone else. That's why he got into theater in the first place. For the few hours spent on stage performing, Gerard can forget about being himself and become someone different. He's an actor that can really get into character – and for that reason alone, his producer loves him.

But that's not the only reason why Gerard's producer takes a personal interest in him. It's no secret within the company that their first encounter with each other had nothing to do with Gerard's talent – rather: a drunk evening spent at the bar.

And the rest, as they so often say in fiction and in plays, is history.

It would seem that as son as Gerard started being assigned each and every one of the main roles, it was a happily ever after ending. But it just wasn't like that. It's quite the opposite, in fact, because no one knows about the things Gerard does to keep his star role in the company. No one knows about how Gerard sells his body to the producer in the same way vendors outside the theater sells tickets to viewers.

This is the price of Gerard's dreams. How much would you be willing to pay for yours?



A/N: What I love so much about this prologue is that it not only sets the stage (no pun intended) for the rest of the fic but it could very well stand on its own with no further chapters to follow it up. This is something I'm rather proud of, truth be told.

Also, chapter one is already written and is in the process of being edited. It's a longer than this one by about 1.4K words. I'll post that within the next few days~

It's going to be more fast-paced than most of my other fics. My fics usually have slow progression but to hold my interest while writing I'm going to shove things along.

I LOVE BIG BANG AND JFLSKJF GD BIASED, OKAY. TOP used to be my bias but I just. I adore how passionate and hard-working GD is and his devotion to his music reminds me of my devotion to my own writing andand I really like Kpop flkdsfjskl <3
