can we fucking talk about this for a minute? gerard wanted to die. he wanted to be GONE FOREVER. he wanted to end it forever and he didn’t think anyone would stop it. there would have never been TBP. or Danger Days. or Conventional Weapons. My Chemical Romance would have ended right there with Revenge. without The Black Parade, i would have never known about MCR. to be quite fucking honest, TBP was the only reason i survived my early teenage years. my idol has always been mikey, but if gerard decided to take his life before making that one phone call, i would honestly probably be 10 feet underground.
