Gerard Way has been busy at Thought Bubble, a comic convention in the UK for the past couple days, doing panels and signings and generally being adorable. He has also been taking a lot of pictures with fans at the convention, which just so happened to coincide with Frank Iero And The Patience's UK tour. One lucky fan didn't meet Gerard at the con, though—she spotted him out in the world, with an old friend.
Yes it is 2017 and one of the only fan pictures with both Gerard Way and Frank Iero has surfaced! A fan named Sofia, (@very_dark_orca on Twitter), attended both Frank Iero And The Patience's show in Leeds and Thought Bubble, according to her Twitter, and as if we weren't already jealous, she happened upon 50% of My Chemical Romance together and snapped this pic!

We're not crying—you're crying.
Both of the guys are sporting new haircuts and facial hair and look like the coolest dad gang ever. Presumably, they'd found out they were in the same city and had met up to hang out for a while when Sofia found them. Congrats to her, we could not be more jealous.
Check out some of our favorite pictures fans snapped of Gerard Way at Thought Bubble!
