You've clearly shown that--as long as Justin's staying--Brian will express his happiness through his actions.

Reviewer: eureka1 (Signed) · Date: October 23, 2015 11:25 AM · On: Chapter 2

I really like this chapter with Brian's drunk rambling. To me it seems quite in character, that he can more truly express his feelings when his filter is impaired. This could be canon.

How you went from chapter 4 to chapter 5 is beyond me... Did you mean to add a like like it was all a dream???

This makes no sense...

I really liked this fic until the last chapter, its almost like it belongs to a different fic... ~ Kathleen

Sweet! ~ Kathleen

Reviewer: 7wildwaysup (Signed) · Date: July 15, 2015 03:12 PM · On: Chapter 3

Now who's the clever devil? ~ Kathleen

Reviewer: 7wildwaysup (Signed) · Date: July 15, 2015 02:58 PM · On: Chapter 2

Now Brian's finally communicating, even if it's during a drunken rant... ~ Kathleen

Reviewer: 7wildwaysup (Signed) · Date: July 15, 2015 02:57 PM · On: Chapter 1

I liked this ending... ~ Kathleen

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: September 21, 2013 01:09 AM · On: Chapter 5

Well that wasn't how it happened in the episode, but it sure should have.  Love how you went with this!

Reviewer: Jean (Anonymous) · Date: August 17, 2013 08:10 PM · On: Chapter 4

Yes, this is good.  It shows too the point, tight writing.

Author's Response:

Thank you. :)

His story was very good. A delightful read.
I really like the way your story flowed.
The reunion was so exciting! Justin leaving in abeyance its decision. Loved it!
A big hug!

Author's Response:

Thank you. :)

Reviewer: feet526@aol.com (Anonymous) · Date: August 15, 2013 10:33 AM · On: Chapter 4

Just delightful.........you don't need a beta; you're just fine!!! Loved! Thanks

Author's Response:

I need a beta just to pick up on all the small mistakes I don't realise I've made (I don't proof read what I've written before posting, in case I chicken out) but thank you anyway. :)

Reviewer: Debv3 (Anonymous) · Date: August 14, 2013 03:03 AM · On: Chapter 4

These were great. You most definitely shouldn't keep writing.

Reviewer: 4depthoflove (Signed) · Date: August 12, 2013 10:53 AM · On: Chapter 3

nice - really enjoying these!


Reviewer: 4depthoflove (Signed) · Date: August 12, 2013 10:48 AM · On: Chapter 1

exactly what should have happened...love it!


Reviewer: sophie'smom (Anonymous) · Date: August 11, 2013 09:43 PM · On: Chapter 4

I liked it. Good job.

Reviewer: Lorie (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 11:17 AM · On: Chapter 4

Great ending, except for the missing reunion sex. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you. I'm not quite comfortable writing sex yet (I've tried a couple of times and it just doesn't turn out right) so I figured it'd be easier to let everyone imagine how the sex happened. 

Reviewer: Lorie (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 11:14 AM · On: Chapter 3

Michael should learn to mind his own business. Love the little happy smile.

Author's Response:

I highly doubt Michael will ever learn to mind his own business where Brian's concerned. Thanks for the comment.  

Reviewer: Lorie (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 11:09 AM · On: Chapter 2

I wish he had said this to Justin, it was very sweet and very Brian.

Author's Response:

I think everyone wished this had happened, rather than the fiddler fiasco. I was worried it was a bit OCC, so I'm glad you think it wasn't. 

Reviewer: Lorie (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 11:05 AM · On: Chapter 1

Great first chapter. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you so much. 

Reviewer: Hannah (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 07:14 AM · On: Chapter 4

i really enjoyed this! your writing is pretty damn impressive and i look forward to many more one-shots/multi chaptered fics!! hint hint :D 

Author's Response:

That made me so happy when I read it, so thank you. More one-shots are (hopefully) coming soon. 

Reviewer: Predec2 (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 06:42 AM · On: Chapter 4

Loved it, Nikki!  Loved the way that Justin slowly revealed what he was doing, and how Brian was afraid he was going back to Ethan.  Hope you'll think about writing another one - we just extended the summer fan fic challenge, BTW, to 8/25 (hint, hint...).  *Hugs*  ~Kim

Author's Response:

Thank you so much. I'm in the process of re-writing 2.19, I've just got to figure out where I want to go with it. I had thought about re-writing the episode where Brian punches Michael for the challenge or I might try something completely original, which is a bit scary. 

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 06:29 AM · On: Chapter 4

Yay!  Brian finally got it right.  You can correct any and all QAF errors anytime.

Author's Response:

My aim is to re-write as many errors as I can. I'm currently re-writing 2.19; I've just got to figure out where I'm going with it, as I've got a couple of different ideas.

Thank you. 

Reviewer: reiselust161 (Signed) · Date: August 11, 2013 06:02 AM · On: Chapter 4

Thanks fir the drabbles. Wonderful moments you chose for the "what ifs". Like to read more!

Author's Response:

Thank you. More are hopefully coming. :)

Reviewer: Sunshine92 (Signed) · Date: March 19, 2013 05:00 AM · On: Chapter 3

I really want to be able to write a good review, but I suck at it. But I'm gonna give it a try (as I know how much they mean to me)

I really love that Justin didn't left Brian for Ethan (don't like him at all, btw) 
And I would love to know more of Brian's drunken ramblings. 

[I hope I didn't do terrible with reviewing] x

Author's Response:

I suck at reviewing as well, so don't worry. And it's not a bad review.

Thank you for reading. :)

Reviewer: Reader (Anonymous) · Date: March 18, 2013 07:10 AM · On: Chapter 3

This is quite an interesting perspective - Brian's drunkard tirads. Justin did learn an important piece of information.

Imagine what else he can learn?

Completely enjoyed it.

Author's Response:

I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

Reviewer: Blanca (Signed) · Date: March 17, 2013 01:25 PM · On: Chapter 3

Will Justin allow Brian to shower alone? hahahaha! Thanks for continuing the story...more please :) :) :)


Author's Response:

I'm sitting glsd you liked this. I'm never sure if it's going to make sense outside if my head. 

Reviewer: Louan706 (Signed) · Date: March 17, 2013 08:01 AM · On: Chapter 3

I just found this site yesterday, and you today. I really loved how you wrote I'm not big on punctuation I care more about what you're  trying to get across, the emotions and you did a great job. I also write and not getting feedback sucks. I hope you add more soon I look forward to seeing where you take it.

Author's Response:

I've never had anyone find me before. It's a nice feeling. :)

I'm really glsdad you liked it. 

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: March 17, 2013 06:12 AM · On: Chapter 3

I am so glad that Justin is not taking no for an answer.  Love your version of events.

Author's Response:

Thank you. :)

Reviewer: feet526@aol.com (Anonymous) · Date: March 14, 2013 11:31 AM · On: Chapter 2

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!!! Thanks...more please.

Author's Response:

Thank you and there is more. :)

Reviewer: wellreadbunny (Signed) · Date: March 12, 2013 07:22 AM · On: Chapter 2

I actually thought they were both pretty good. I think Brian might make a drunken confession of feelings.

Author's Response:

Thank you. :)

Reviewer: 4depthoflove (Signed) · Date: March 11, 2013 12:05 AM · On: Chapter 2

Really like this story - especially Brian giving his true feelings away without meaning to...I really would love to see what happens when he realizes what he revealed. What a hoot that would be - you may try to back-pedal Brian - but you can't unring a bell!

The one thing I struggled with on the show was that Justin seemed to really get Brian one minute, and then be completely oblivious the next. Except for the time right after the bashing, when his 'Brian reading' abilities seemed to be off, his skills at reading his lover and his 'never say die' perseverance seemed to come and go - and unfortunately we see a little of that here in your story - not realizing until he heard the words how the man truly felt.

That said, I wouldn't have changed anything else, cause I love that Justin got to hear the whole truth without Brian having a chance to react in typical Kinney fashion and undo all that these overheard words meant.

Great job - hope you keep writing.



Author's Response:

You're the third person to request a sequel (or at least say you'd like to see what would happen after), so I think I'll probably write one. (And "you can't unring a bell" is my new favourite phrase.)

The reason Justin didn't know how Brian truely felt until he heard the words is because I wanted to stay true to the scene, and to the characters at that point in time, only changing what happened afterwards (in that Justin didn't go to Ethan's but stayed at the loft instead, waiting for Brian to come home etc). I had thought of other ways of continuing the scene, including Justin being more perceptive and refusing to leave, as he knows Brian does care but he just can't admit it. (The line I was going to end with, and may end up using in the sequel, is, "Justin never wanted to end up with Ethan, not really. He just wanted Brian to finally admit that he felt something, anything, for him and hoped for force Brian into it, when faced with Justin leaving.")

If I had written a story where Justin had seen Brian and Ethan in the diner, but the conversation never happened, then yes, Justin would have known all along how Brian felt about him. And Justin would have fought a lot harder to get Brian to admit it.

Thank you for reading and your comments.

I'm usually lurker (not proud of that) but I just wanted to let you know that you're great writer (and I'd love to read more from you!) and I personally don't think you need to feel insecure about your writing AT ALL. 

Once again, hope to see more from you. And P.S love your user name ;)

Author's Response:

Thank you so much.

Reviewer: Blanca (Signed) · Date: March 10, 2013 01:15 PM · On: Chapter 2

I love this chapter....I like the way Brian expressed his feelings towards Justin even not aware of doing it, hehehe....how I wish it will be more....hope there will be a sequel to this story.


Author's Response:

Thank you and I'll hopefully I'll get around to writing a sequel.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: March 10, 2013 01:01 PM · On: Chapter 2

Now why is it they didn't write it this way

Author's Response:

I know, right? I figure, if they didn't write it, I'll just have to write it myself.

Reviewer: Bigdogz09 (Signed) · Date: March 10, 2013 10:22 AM · On: Chapter 1

Don't I wish it went like this... oh well.  At least it does in this fic. 

Very nice!

All the best!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much.

Reviewer: Predec2 (Signed) · Date: March 10, 2013 09:21 AM · On: Chapter 2

Well, for someone who didn't have this beta'd, I think you did quite well.:)  I liked it; it's funny how Brian tries not to say things or give himself away, but it usually wasn't too hard to figure him out, and I think Justin had the most accurate 'copy' of the Brian Kinney Operating Manual of everyone.:)  I actually wouldn't mind a little more of this; maybe a 'morning after' type chapter (?) when Brian has sobered up a little and realizes exactly what he said to Justin a few hours before, and they figure out where to go from there.  *Hugs*  ~Kim

Author's Response:

Thank you. The way I figured it, Brian wasn't really aware he was talking to Justin, he was more ranting to himself and Justin just happened to overhear. I'm sure I could write a morning after chapter. I've actually got various ideas on more alternative endings to various scenes and a longer story (once I've figured out where to go with it) that I'll hopefully get around to writing.

Reviewer: jane (Anonymous) · Date: February 08, 2013 12:19 AM · On: Chapter 1

If only...

Author's Response:

I know. When I watched it for the first time, I skipped most of the start of season 3, until Jusin and Brian got back together.

Reviewer: balrogtweety (Signed) · Date: February 06, 2013 07:43 PM · On: Chapter 1

Now that is what should have happened. I hated when Justin left with Ethan. Great fic.

Author's Response:

Thank you. I hate Ethan full stop.

Reviewer: Lorie (Signed) · Date: February 06, 2013 07:29 AM · On: Chapter 1

Beautiful. Now if you could only rewrite the bad parts of the show and get them on film we would all be happy.


Author's Response:

Believe me, if I could then I would. I wonder how much the rights to QaF are. Actually, if I had any say in it, it would be entirely Brian and Justin. 

Reviewer: Al (Anonymous) · Date: February 06, 2013 05:19 AM · On: Chapter 1

Good! I really wish you would make this into a long story. Maybe with anti-Michael. I really like anti-Michael stories.

Author's Response:

I'm not so good at the longer stories. And I'm not hugely anti-Michael. I have read some stories which really make me hate him, but that's when he's totally OOC. I just find him mildly annoying in QaF.

But thank you for taking the time to read and review. :)

Reviewer: Blanca (Signed) · Date: February 06, 2013 03:22 AM · On: Chapter 1

Oh I love this twist. How I wished this what really happened! :) :) :)

Author's Response:

I know, right? When watching it, I was so expecting Justin to ditch Ethan outside Babylon and go back inside to Brian. I was so annoyed when he didn't.

Reviewer: Predec2 (Signed) · Date: February 06, 2013 03:09 AM · On: Chapter 1

If only we could have pulled that boy back by the scruff of his neck and locked these two guys up in a private room until they came to a realization of why they did what they did and what they meant to each other.  Sigh...so stubborn!  Thanks for the drabble.  *Hugs*  ~Kim

Author's Response:

Checking my phone and seeing I had four reviews waiting for me was great. Seeing that two of them were from you was even better. So thank you for taking the time to read and comment. :) (Though I suppose it's only fair considering how addicted I am to your stories.)
