sonny/joel, pg-13

prompt: “cute”, by the way, means “fascinatingly ugly”.

Joel’s really good at sassy, and he thinks he does decently well with funny and fast, but when it comes to emotion and comforting he’s not so great and he knows it. Cutting an asshole down to size is his forte; convincing Sonny that he’s attractive without letting Sonny know what a giant crush he has on him kind if isn’t.

“God, I hate photos,” Sonny mumbles as the fan walks away, which Joel thinks is funny because he can google just as well (or better) as everyone else. He’s seen the five thousand vain bathroom shots Sonny took of himself at fourteen. It’s funny.

“Really?” he laughs. He bullies Sonny into photos all the time, so it’s a little surprising.

“I just hate how I look,” Sonny mutters, flipping his hood up and continuing to walk towards the car.

That one hits Joel like a truck. He’s… not sure what to say for once, so he defaults to mean because it’s what he’s good at. “What the hell, you fuck, are you blind?”

Sonny laughs, and Joel knows he’s trying to keep this light but the bitterness is there anyway. Joel flounders for a second and then goes, “You’re fucking blind.”

Sonny fusses his with hair and looks at Joel and Joel’s heart stops because oh god oh god he knows as he stares back into Sonny’s beautiful graceful angled brown eyes, but Sonny doesn’t do anything but look at him. Joel smiles charmingly even as his heart races.

“Yeah, pretty much,” Sonny laughs, pushing his glasses up to call Joel’s attention to them, and there’s no bitterness anymore.

Later Joel goes through the photos he has of Sonny and looks at them, trying to see what Sonny sees. He guesses he gets it; Sonny has scars all over his jaw that makes Joel want to runs his hands over his skin till it’s all smoothed flat and he’s got no lips at all but that doesn’t mean Joel doesn’t want to bite and suck and kiss his mouth until his lips are swollen and pink. He’s got a huge nose but Joel wants to stroke a finger down the middle and kiss the tip and tell Sonny’s he’s gorgeous and have him believe it for once.

Instead he jerks off to the pictures. Joel’s really not so good at emotion.

From the things you've been posting on Tumblr all I can tell is that Sonny seems like such an endearing loser that I'm probably going to love him verily so: damn you this is going to become an addiction.

His emo-scene pictures are so fucking precious I could puke.

People write a lot of shit about Brendon Urie's ex-roommate: fandom insiders are fair game.

I don't think so - I think Brendon lives with his girlfriend almost like he's a real boy now!

The idea of Brendon being an adult startles me

There is a large part of me that wants him to be "HEY I AM MARRYING SARAH" just so I can see this one person in bandom who I hate try to pretend that ~~it's all because Brendon loves Ryan~~ so I am totally pro-Sarah.

i mean, he's still only like what, 23? 24? it's still fairly young to get married, so we'll see. i would be over the moon if they did, though, holy shit. like, he's still a ~young adult irl, he's not a derpy teenager anymore but he sure as hell isn't 34 year old fogey gerard way.

It's weird because so much of bandom portrays him as a teenager and tbh Panic! probably hit its peak popularity when he was a teenager so that'll probably be the popular characterization of him forever rather than a twenty-something year old.

I mean, he's from a Mormon family. They marry real early. To be honest I don't have a care about their relationship more than upsetting the woman-hating cock-worshipping jackasses who hate Sarah because she's a woman.

i mean, well, there's that, but that's a reason to defend her, not to like her. i like her because their relationship feels really sweet and genuine and understanding, they seem to share a lot of interests, idk. i like them as a couple. unlike let's say gabe dating bianca, who i defended for the same reasons you stand by sarah but when it came to reasons to like her i came up with "well, gabe likes her and he's not stupid so he must know something i don't?" i wasn't exactly hearteyesy. but sarah makes me a little bit hearteyesy.

also, is she from a mormon background? just beacuse he's ready to ~settle doesn't mean she is.

i mean, either way, no way for us to know until one day they get married. hah.

also, right, i forgot, i like to play this game in my head of "what would i think of [band boy x] if he only got famous when [y]" and my best example is what if brendon only got famous like with this album and ryan and jon were like two dudes that played on their first two records that no-one listened to and someone found out that they tried to start their own band ones and isn't that weird and they found these HILAROUS ancient pictures of being at like 17/18 where he's wearing like that gayest shit ever like lavender hoodies and totally wasn't at all the classy-suit-wearing dude we all know and love and spencer looked like a girl and what the fuck

imagine if people only knew brendon in suits

This is gorgeous :') I love the honesty about Sonny's flaws and Joel's frustration over his feelings <3

it's funny, because it was joel's flaws that i was trying to focus on here, not sonny's, mainly that joel is a belligerent loser with no ability to express himself who just happens to be funny and famous so people let him get away with it.
