SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!
If you had your parking brake engaged the whole time, then your pads might be seized to the rotors. Continue doing what you already tried (engaging forward and then reverse, repeating as required) in an attempt to break the pads free from the rotors.

In the future, if a car will be sitting for a long time, don't use the parking brake to avoid this problem.
