Warnings: mentions of drug and alcohol abuse; underage sex
Summary: When Bry thought about her post-touring future, she always imagined herself crusading for truth, justice, and girls in the music scene. She'd picture herself managing female artists and female bands because that was where her passion lay, showing that girls had a place in the scene and a right to take it up. She never imagined My Chemical Romance.
Written for bandombigbang 2009 - huge thanks to the mods.
Huge thanks to harborshore for basically everything -- including, right at the beginning of this process, for pointing out so nicely that I didn't actually have a plot, then helping me to build this 'verse through strings of emails, reassuring me as I was writing it and finally for betaing it. You taught me so much about gender politics, bb, thank you ♥.
Thanks also to everyone on my flist who expressed excitement/encouragement/a vague sense of interest.
Mylene Klass's book My Bump and Me was invaluable, as was kylieq's amazing Pretty Good For a Girl.
Title from Alphabeat's 10 000 Nights.
