Jon Walker/Brendon Urie – Panic at the DiscoWord Count:
I really do know the difference between real life and fiction. This is the latter.Prompt:
Written for harlequin_bands
, option #2.Summary: Jon inherits his grandmother's home after her death. Sometimes falling in love is the easy part – it's everything else that's difficult.Author's Notes:
While I don't think anything requires 'warning,' I'd like to acknowledge that this story includes [one instance of] unsafe sex, unplanned pregnancy and childbirth (not mpreg – I swear!) and death. I hope that I addressed everything respectfully and responsibly and that it won't rise to squick level.

My deepest thanks to the mods of harlequin_bands
for creating a light-hearted place to write a bit of romance and smut.

and to penceyprepster
for contributing her thoughts. Most especially my ♥ goes to mrsquizzical
