Tried to start writing this when TCR ended, but it didn't come together until just now.

Post-Report, "Stephen" is immortal. Snapshots of his relationship with Jon as The Daily Show ends too, and the years go by.

Oh, baby, this town rips the bones from your back, it's a death trap, it's a suicide rap — we gotta get out while we're young.

Two interviews referenced, but watch them after reading, to avoid spoilers: one, two. And people would indeed do Jimmy and marry Stephen.

The big showstopper song: They Don't Know About Us.

And the medley at the end: Just The Way We Roll, Defying Gravity, All That Heaven Will Allow, A Whole New World, Ever Ever After, Born To Run, Cover Me, I'll Cover You, and Without Love.

Title: #stimmy is real
Characters/Pairings: "Stephen"/Jimmy, Jimmy/Tina
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: See series Table of Contents.

Collected Tumblr posts from a universe where teen idols "Stephen" and Jimmy have a massive tinhatting fandom.

Written as a bonus for the boy band AU, but can also be read as a standalone one-shot.

Contains animated GIFs. All images feature the IRL adults; just pretend they're images of the same people/characters as teenagers, doing exactly the same things. A few quotes are directly from real-world Larry Stylinson shippers. See if you can guess which they are!

Title: Shout*For, Act II, Chapter 13: The Rising
Characters/Pairings: Jon/"Stephen", Jimmy/Tina, Olivia/Kristen, Brian, Charlene, Trevor Potter, family, others
Rating: PG-13
Contents: Discussion of child abuse
Disclaimer: See series Table of Contents.

Olivia's got all her ducks in a row, personally and professionally, and is set to make a fresh start. Meanwhile, Stephen still has some serious hurdles to climb...but now he has Jon's ruthless, righteous ferocity on his side, and there are more allies to be found when he gets brave enough to start looking.

With a cameo from Stephanie Tubbs Jones. The details of legal emancipation for child actors are based largely on the memoir Diary of a Stage Mother's Daughter by Melissa Francis. Those events happened in the 1980s, and don't line up with 2011 law as I understand it (if, indeed, they were strictly in line with 198X law in the first place); but hey, it's already an AU.

Rating: R
Contents: Teen/teen sexual contact, discussion of abuse

Olivia starts clawing herself back up towards normal, with a couple of helping hands. And Stephen gives Jon (and himself) a long-desired gift, before finally opening up about the fight he's been going through alone.

Concert time. Jon invites a couple of special guests, gets some surprise presents, and has an (unwelcome) unexpected visitor — which sparks off some thoughts that Stephen won't be able to put out.

Huma's dress is from her 2007 Vogue profile. Etsy provided the Batman/Superman friendship pendants.

Title: Shout*For, Act II, Chapter 9: New York City Serenade
Characters/Pairings: Jon/"Stephen", Jimmy(/Tina), family, others.
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: See series Table of Contents.

The band is in NYC once more: singing in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, making plans for caroling season, and putting together their long-anticipated concert movie. Also on Stephen and Jon's agenda: dinner with Mom. Let's see how much of this actually goes according to plan....

Songs that have been appropriated for Shout*For's set list: All I Ever Wanted (lyrics tweaked where appropriate), Keep It Real, Nobody Compares. Songs the band are supposed to be doing covers of in-universe: A Whole New World, Walking On Sunshine.

Stephen also works on Another Christmas Song, and tries to inspire Jon to write Can I Interest You In Hanukkah.

Obligatory reminder that in-story family, especially for "Stephen", is unrelated to the actors' real families.

Stephen takes Jon for a ride, while Carlos recovers his childhood memories in full.

Disclaimer: None of these series and/or people are mine.

Some late-night drinking with relatives, a trip to the beach, voice-based Science being done on Cecil and Stephen, and more headaches for Carlos and Jon. Even the most protective supernatural news reporters can't shield their fearless fact-seeking boyfriends from everything.

Jon bonds with Carlos as the only other normal person in a weird, weird group. Cecil wants to hear more about Carlos' childhood, and not just the magical adventures, either. And when Stephen gets picked on, the Friz decides to turn it into a learning opportunity.

( 'And two decades later you were doing seismology research that ended up leading you to Night Vale! I should really track down this Dorothy Ann person and send her a thank-you card.' )

Dicey goings-on at the band's album release party. Jon stews all by himself, Olivia flutters from drink to drink, and Stephen is more popular than he wants to be. And what did Stephen do while he was sleepwalking?

Features a new Newsroom cameo; all you need to know about Leona Lansing is that she's played by Jane Fonda.

( 'You have to not...freak out. Or scream. Or hide. Or run to the nearest phone and call up the SCP Foundation. In fact, you really shouldn't let on that you've ever heard of the SCP Foundation.' )
