Agreed. From 2010 onward, he seemed pretty chill. He was still bouncy onstage, but irl he was calmer.
I agree with all of this. I don’t think stage gay can be pinned down to just one reason, though making the anti-homophobia statement was probably the main one.
Never got them, sorry!
(Part 2) After the accident, they put Dr. D on radio duty, getting news, sending encrypted messages, hacking into airwaves and computers. BLI regretted it later. Ghoul was also drafted later. He had protested a lot about the war and the new corporation taking over so it was pretty ironic. Jet actually signed up as a nurse/doctor because he wanted to help the people who were drafted and got hurt for a cause they didn’t believe in. The two of them met when Ghoul was injured… (Sorry! It’s long..)
(Part 3) So Jet and Ghoul met when Ghoul was injured and complained loudly about not even signing up, etc. Basically Jet agreed with everything he said about BLI and the war. They became fast friends. Because Ghoul was unfit to keep fighting, he helped Jet out with the medical stuff. They met Poison and Kobra when they came in to help move Dr. D’s things as they were moving their equipment in (Jet was going to be the new doc for their unit). They talked and eventually became good friends. (…)
(Part 4) They also met the Girl’s mum when she couldn’t fight anymore since she was pregnant and became a nurse. She had info about BLI and their corruption. Then Jet was sent these pills from BLI. They we’re sent with instructions to give them to the soldiers before a battle, etc. but Jet, being all medical and such, knew that the chemicals in the pills were addictive and knew what they would do: shut off the emotional part of the soldiers’ brains. (I’m very sorry but it’s long!!)
(Part 5) So that’s when they knew BLI was bad news. They told the soldiers in their unit about the pills and they all decided that they wouldn’t take them and they’d no longer fight for BLI, who were beginning to recruit ‘crows and Dracs and such to “keep the peace” during protests/riots and were trained as an elite military team to “protect the city” (at least protect the people in power). And that’s how a whole group were turned into anarchists called Killjoys, led by the Fab 4. (To be cont..)
Aww, I love the part about Poison volunteering to protect Kobra. The amount of detail you put into this and the way you incorporated all the characters is great. I can tell you’ve put a ton of thought into this. It would make a great fic.
Never played it, but judging by the title, that sounds about right, haha. Wonder what Las Vegas is like in the Killjoy world…
Yeah, that’s an interesting idea. The homophobes they were trying to piss off would have been like “Wooo! All right!” if they were hot women, but when it’s two guys, it’s “Ew! Stop it! Queers!” Plus, people in general seem to be less affected by two women kissing than two men.
I’ve only listened to “Brother” once, so unfortunately I can’t help you there (also, I’m not 100% sure he’s in that one, but he probably is.) “I Lied” is tricky. I definitely think you can hear him at the very beginning, because it sounds just like Gerard’s singing back-up. I think you can hear him when they sing “when I was young,” too. He’s hard to make out, though. Wish we could hear him singing solo.
Oh yeah, I forgot Gerard said he never acts on stage. Good point. Yeah, I could see that. Similar things have happened to me, tbh.
Hmm, yeah. That’s a different perspective on it. Good points. Personally, I still think the anti-homophobia statement came first, but I see where you’re coming from.
