It felt weird referencing something so serious in a silly bit of fanfiction! I get a bit emotional about Chester's problems with addiction, and how the band stepped in to help him through it. Apparently Mike wrote 'Breaking the Habit' while Chester was struggling with drugs (he'd started working on the lyrics years earlier, before meeting Chester, but I don't think it's a coincidence that he finally picked them up at that time), and Chester cried when he read the lyrics, had trouble recording the vocals because he kept breaking into tears, and couldn't perform it live for months.
