Several months into it? Not so much.

Summary:

“I’m sorry,” Brian repeated, his tone serious and deliberate. “For a lot of things over the last two days. I… I didn’t know what to do with what happened before I left Pittsburgh, and I wasn’t ready to talk.” He paused, sighing. “And I don’t know how to lie to you. I haven’t for a long time, and you know that. So sometimes, it’s easier to piss you off, so you’ll leave me alone until I find enough of my remaining ball to face you -- as irrational as I know that sounds.”

“Or,” Justin said, a small smile playing on his lips, “you could say, ‘Hey Justin, I’ve got something on my mind that I’m not ready to talk about, and I need a little space.’” He gave his husband a meaningful look before continuing. “Brian, I know what you’re doing when you do it now… But what I don’t understand is why, almost two decades into our relationship, you still think the solution to anything is to push me away -- if for no reason other than it won’t fucking work.”

***

Brian gets some unexpected and difficult news and turns to his usual coping strategies. Justin knows better.

Summary:

“Baking cookies shouldn’t take that long if we both do it,” Justin countered. “Or you can stand there all night, holding the things I need, because then we’ll both be fucked, and--”

“--not in a positive, life-affirming way,” Brian finished in a deadpan, then sighed and brought the bags to the counter. “Fine. What do I do?”

***

A semi-forced Christmas assignment gives Brian a little more satisfaction than he originally imagined...

Summary:

The funny flipside of Brian's Season 4 line, "Of all the times we've fucked -- and by now it has to be well into the quadruple digits -- that has to rank in the top five." Five times when things didn't quite go as planned...

Standalone one-shot. PWP.

Last Christmas I gave you my heart, but the very next day you gave it away. Inspired by the song Last Christmas from Wham, also I wrote this after watching Call Me By Your Name.

Christmas Memories: 2029 by Wren Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 4]
Summary:


Memories copy.jpg

 

Written for the qaf_giftxhchnge 2018 on LJ.

The request was from sfscarlet and was for:
Fic angst, AU, canon-compliant, hurt/comfort, humor Brian/ Justin- / Gus- Gus is an adult- time could be holiday or family reunion or just visiting B/J- writer's choice. Gus reminiscing about growing up with B/J- Funny stories, harrowing tales, first times, tales about trips they made- anything the writer chooses. Would love at least 2-3 stories ( tales) that Gus shares. B/J could disagree with his memories and they could tell their version- if writer chooses. ( not necessary- just choice of writer)

This is the result. It's set in 2029. I think of this as being loosely Homecoming future, but all that anyone needs to know is that Brian and Justin have been living together in Pittsburgh in a riverside house since Justin's return from New York. Justin and Daphne have a daughter – Dani. Brian, Justin, and Daphne are co-parents, an arrangement which works well for them all. Dani is 16, Gus is 29.


WARNING:A little snarky about Mikey and the Munchers.

Real Treasure by Wren Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 4]
Summary:




Treasure final copy.jpg

Written for qaf_giftxchnge 2018 on LJ, although this one is not, per se, a Christmas story.

The request was for:

Fic fluff/schmoop, hurt/comfort, sexy fun times Brian/Justin sexy domestic fluff or a health scare that prompts a relaxing vacation


So here it is.  It's set maybe 2 years post 513.  Justin returned from New York about 12 months ago, but they sold Britin and have been living at the loft.  Justin rents studio space.

WARNING: Very mild (for me, at least) snark about Michael.

Identity Crisis by TrueIllusion Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 1]
Summary:

One shot. Standalone fic. Introspective S4/S5 gap filler from Lindsay's point-of-view.

Written for the 2018 QaF Gift Exchange as a gift for TheaPink on LJ. Request was a story about the girls breaking up and getting back together in canon time, with the song "Just Hold On" as a prompt. The song immediately made me think of their S4/S5 breakup. This is a peek into Lindsay's thoughts during that time.
