The story follows the life of a character named Steph (or Stef), whith a difficult home life, who runs away to enter a competion to meet Green Day. She ends up meeting the band and romance blossoms between our hero Steph and Bilie Joe Armstrong. Steph still goes ahead with the competion, sparking a feud between another competitor, Jimmy. The readers learn that Steph has been self harming for years and attempts to kill herself after a fight with Billie Joe.The theame of terrorism is woven into this fanfic when Billie is almost killed in a bombing. Steph is then forced to visit Billie Joe's family home, pretending she is the girlfriend of bandmate Tre Cool.
The story contains perhaps the most tragic final chapter in the history of fan fiction. A second terrorist attack claims the life of pregnant Steph, hours before Billie Joe is due to explain to his wife that he would rather be with Steph.
Although stories where Billie Joe is with anyone other than his wife of twelve years, have recieved critism on GSB in the past, this story is the exception. Far from the typical teenie 'I LyK mET BiLlIe aNd hE LuVz mE', A Note Don't Come Easy often exceeded ten pages of comments per chapter and recieved over forty straight ten votes.
A must read for any GSBian or Green Day fan, with a couple of hours to spare
