Addiction and Her Name


Gerard is a cartoon artist working in New York, but that's only what he does during the day. At night the male comes alive, getting drunk and passing out with his friends.
He meets a person who will change his life forever, but not necessarily for the best. Does love really conquer all or is it just a cliche used in romance movies?
The story may have elements from My Chem songs, but it's mostly just made up.
