QAF Brian and Justin Fanfiction
Reviewer: keykoles77 (Signed) · Date: November 22, 2019 04:40 PM · On: Chapter 14

Oh wow! Do you think there will be a sequel? Taking Gus to Kilkenny or Justin's Irish mates coming to the Pitts. Shit, this could be a whole series. They do writ smutty novels about Irish Lords with a castle and a steed. 😆

Thank you for writing this!!!!

Wonderfully funny and sweet! Great writing. Loved the writing. Only Brian would give a sized down ring!

Reviewer: eureka1 (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2015 04:36 AM · On: Chapter 14

What a fun, sexy AU and point of divergence! And, it could be canon. Both Brian and Justin were in character. And they got over the stumbling block of Brian's fear of change. Hooray! Thank you.

Reviewer: eureka1 (Signed) · Date: October 05, 2015 12:35 AM · On: Chapter 11

A bit reminiscent of the Stockwell situation, when Brian had to deal with the places he frequented being closed. Well imagined!

Reviewer: eureka1 (Signed) · Date: October 04, 2015 07:22 PM · On: Chapter 8

Justin is gutsy and stands up for what he believes. I'm glad this story reflects his strength of character.

Reviewer: eureka1 (Signed) · Date: October 04, 2015 06:16 PM · On: Chapter 5

LOL. Brian on horseback was a riot. But, he did give it a go. Really sweet the way Colleen accepted Justin and Brian's relationship. Now let's see how long it takes for a red shamrock to bloom and work its magic. ;)

Hi!:) I have to say, I was basically ignoring this story at first because usually combination of B/J journey and some big inheritance seems uninteresting to me. But then I peeked at the comments, saw a few things that I liked and decided to give it a try after all. I’m so happy I did! This story is really incredible, I enjoyed it so much, I couldn’t stop reading. It belongs to the category where I savor every like, every word. The atmosphere of the story is overwhelming, I myself fell in love with Kilkenny. It’s such a beautiful place, and what an interesting story that gives Brian ownership! This kind of inheritance is so rare, but quite possible, and it’s so nice to think of Brian as of noble blood.

I *loved* his relationship with Justin! It was very in canon, and every problem they had kept me on the edge of my seat. I wasn’t sure what Justin would do if Brian sold Kilkenny after all – he’d probably have gotten over it, but it would have put a rift between them for a while. The place is beautiful, it deserves to remain untouched. I loved how you showed the gradual change in Brian – at first I just couldn’t imagine him loving this place, agreeing to keep it! Bu the nature, the traditions, local people – it all grew on him. It touched me so much when he bought the horse for that poor man, fulfilling his dream. This is so *Brian* - doing something big and altruistic and then being horrified at it, trying to make it look as nothing. It’s impossible not to love him.

I loved how strong and patient Justin was – I hate when writers make him a saint, taking Brian’s shit and only thanking him for that. Your Justin is canon, he calls Brian on his bullshit but also acts maturely and lovingly. He understands Brian, he loves him, but sometimes his patience reaches its limits as well.

Thank you so much for this amazing work, I loved it! I’m so happy I read it after all, because otherwise I would have missed so much. I can’t wait to read more of your stories!

Author's Response:

That's so funny that it was the reviews that convinced you to read. I'm glad they did! I do see how the plot elements communicated in the banner might not entice all readers right away, but I wanted to take a different road for the challenge than just the route of tropical destination or something obvious like that. And I wanted the story to involve both travel (the theme for the challenge) and a larger plot. I thought that Brian and Justin's fledgling relationship circa season two would be a perfect compliment to such a quirky and transformative trip, and I guess you agreed :) I really like that you found their interactions true to character and not too extreme in one way or the other. I try to write these two as a realistic couple. Thanks so much for giving my story a shot after all! And thanks for the lovely review; it was nice to see that.

Very nice development. The detailing of the surroundings and the castle are very vivid. This is a great story. I'm beginning to see why you snagged the win.

Author's Response:

Yeah I had a strong idea in my head of what this town and it's charaters would be like from the very beginning. I worked hard to communicate that.

Reviewer: Bryton4ever71 (Signed) · Date: August 23, 2014 08:45 PM · On: Chapter 6

This was  really funny at the end.

Author's Response:

Glad you thought so.

If you're writing canon don't worry about epithets. Don't you remember the show? Every second word was fuck.

Author's Response:

epithet in this case means "the younger man," "the artist," or "the blond man," not an offensive word, lol. I was underusing just "Brian" and "Justin" and "he."

Reviewer: Bryton4ever71 (Signed) · Date: August 23, 2014 07:28 AM · On: Chapter 2

very good story so far. Sorry I didn't start it until  it was finished. Congrats on the win.

I caught the fairy tale reference. Did I rub off on you? ;)

Finally finished reading. Great story! Loved the sappy, romantic ending! I'm so glad you've joined our little ranks of fanfic writers here on MW - I can already tell I'm going to look forward to all your stories. Thanks for taking part in my challenge, too. TAG

Author's Response:

Oh I'm so happy you liked the romantic ending. I tried not to make it too sappy, but still very special. Have I joined ranks? Cool! I had a blast writing for this challenge. I really felt like it inspired me to write something that was not my usual type of fic. I'm happy with what I put out, and thank god for that deadline extension, lol.

Wow! Beltane in Dublin - sounds like quite a party! So, are your descriptions from personal experience? If so, I wanna party with YOU! Lol! TAG

Author's Response:

I was in Scotland during Beltane, and it was so fun that I wanted to incorporate it into this fic. They have a Beltane tradition in Ireland too.

"'Brian fucking Kinney'; it's your biggest account."

See, this is why I like your stories! That is a very original line. Perfectly phrased and perfectly executed!

By the way...much more enjoyable without the overabundance of epithets!

Keep up the good work!

Author's Response:

Hey I love getting reviews that point out which specific lines people liked. Thanks for that compliment. I had never considered my use of epithets before until you left that review a while ago. I soon realized that omg!!: you were right! I was glad but a little horrified I'd been doing this for so long, and even though it took some work at first to temper the urge, I'm now in the habit of not doing that. Thanks because I truly consider your comment as having made me a better writer :)

Author's Response:

Wow, thanks!

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: July 13, 2014 02:16 PM · On: Chapter 14

Okay, I admit it; as soon as I read "holy water font, before hastily dunking four fingers into it and blessing himself" all I could think about was how wet he would be.  I know, only my mind would go there.  LOL

I'm curious to know how the castle will now make money to support the workers that are there. 

I like the touch with the ring and Brian buying one that was too small.  Priceless.

Thanks for the entertainment.

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

I was going to put in a detail about how I imagine Brian will pay those people and pay for the car and horse he purchased, but left it out because there wasn't a tidy spot for it. Basically, I was going to have it work out that he used taxpayer dollars as a sort of supplementary income. Peerages like Brian's title sometimes receive income from the taxes in their county/district/whatever. Not exactly democratic, but I think the people of Kilkenny would agree that it's a fair exchange for getting to keep their town the way it is.

Thanks for reading Flossee!

Reviewer: Deb Tanner (Signed) · Date: July 13, 2014 12:43 AM · On: Chapter 14

Really enjoyed this fun adventure! Great job! Hopefully you will write a sequel with Brian and Justin taking Gus to Kilkenny.

Author's Response:

Thanks! A sequel might be in order :)

Reviewer: 4depthoflove (Signed) · Date: July 12, 2014 11:13 PM · On: Chapter 14

I just read this story beginning to end, and loved it! Right up to the end - (how clever Brian, a ring too small to wear) Brian was Brian (no 'for my prince' comments) and yet Justin knows he is loved - and the town keeps its ambiance! What's not to love here, really?!?!?

I think there really needs to be a sequel - more of Lord Brian and Justin in the castle, rebuilding the parts of the castle in such disrepair, and of course the gang  interacting with his new friends would be a total hoot.

Really enjoyed this one. Thank you!





Author's Response:

Like most people I ate up Brian's Britin proposal dialogue in season five with a silver spoon, but I kind of gagged too because it was SOO not him (I kind of think the writers for the show should have rethought that dialogue). I didn't want to go there in this fic, but I did want Brian to do the right thing. I'll do a little sequel one day, probably with the Liberty gang coming over for a visit. Thanks for reading all the way through!

Reviewer: Tagsit (Anonymous) · Date: July 12, 2014 09:06 PM · On: Chapter 1

Reviewer: Predec2 (Signed) · Date: July 12, 2014 08:56 PM · On: Chapter 14

Hi, Sarah - finally had the chance to finish the rest of your story. This was just simply delightful. Touching, poignant, humorous, very much in character for both men. Loved how you were able to show how Brian loved Justin, and how the town and the people in it were ultimately able to change his mind.  You really are an excellent writer. Thank you for writing this. *Hugs*  ~Kim

Author's Response:

Thanks Kim, that means a lot. I'm glad you thought the boys were in character (I had trouble there with Brian at the end, lol). *Hugs*

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: July 12, 2014 08:08 PM · On: Chapter 14

You have made me a very happy soldier! I'm so glad Brian decided not to sell, now he'll have something to pass down to his son. ;)

Author's Response:

Hey that's great! I think Brian would eventually want to show guess the castle and Kilkenny.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: July 12, 2014 07:15 PM · On: Chapter 14

What perfect ending to a perfect tale.  I'm so glad that the shamrock bloomed, but that was a given.  The castle will be there waiting for them.  I do wonder how the family reacted when Justin and Brian got home, because Justin was there to stay.  Now they are on their way to Atlanta!!!  Wahooo!

Author's Response:

I'm so glad you liked how it ended. I'd bet that the family all wanted to go visit Brian's awesome castle once they found out he kept it :)

Reviewer: Marny (Signed) · Date: July 12, 2014 02:47 PM · On: Chapter 14

 I think a trip of the whole Liberty gang over to Ireland could be a funny thing to see in a sequel, don't you?


Do I really need to answer this question? YES !! * grins and makes a happy dance * You're gonna write it NOW !! Sorry * is blushing *

I might have to do that... one day. Right now I want to try something new. Going on vacation in a week, when I plan to start a new fic.

I just read the last three chapters and they blew me away.  I guess the Luck of the Irish made its way into Brian's heart.  He knew how he grew up and made sure that these people didn't have to lose their homes or their town.  Thanks for the great ride.  This was wonderful.


Author's Response:

Well the last three chapters were really where most of the change with Brian hapened, so I hope it didn't seem rushed to you. Ireland (and Kilkenny) definately changed Brian for the better. And he made the kinder decision in the end. Thanks so much for reading all the way through, that means a lot :)

Reviewer: Marny (Signed) · Date: July 12, 2014 10:04 AM · On: Chapter 14

I knew it, well done Brian.

But * giggles * that claddagh ring!! Brian you know: Justin can wear it on a necklace.


Wonderful ending of a wonderful story. I want to read a sequel, please.

* hugs *

Author's Response:

It was hard for me to write Brian doing such a kind thing. I like him a la QAF: rude, selfish, and completey hedonistic. But hey, even he couldn't sell off Kilkenny in the end. I afgree with you that Justin could wear it on a necklace, but I think either way he's just happy that Brian has admitted how much he means to him. So so happy that you read all the way through and that you liked the ending. I think a trip of the whole Liberty gang over to Ireland could be a funny thing to see in a sequel, don't you?

Wonderful.  I smell a no sell in the wind.  Now if you could just make Brian happy about what he's about to do, that would be perfect!

Author's Response:

You will seeee!

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: July 10, 2014 04:05 AM · On: Chapter 12

I love seeing Brian soften to Justin's will, but when it comes to business I'm still hoping he doesn't let his heart rule his head because he did with Stockwell and look where that got him. 

Toppy Justin; nice. 

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

Brian is usually a stubborn ass, but he does have his pivotal moments, like this one. This fic is still season two-ish so any admission like that from his is a big deal! You will see some biiiig things happening this next chapter int he way of Brian deciding what to do with Kilkenny ;)

(BTW: I also love Toppy-Justin on occasion)

Reviewer: nicolle_midnight2013 (Signed) · Date: July 09, 2014 02:52 AM · On: Chapter 12

This story is so wonderful! 

I like how Brian and Justin are together in its history and how Justin gets what he wants from Brian. 

Ireland is a magical land and I'm loving this journey that you are providing. 



Author's Response:

Justin is definately getting what he wants right now. Maybe some of that 'magical' Ireland has persuaded Brian not to be so damned guarded all the time, lol.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: July 08, 2014 05:09 AM · On: Chapter 12

Kaloo Kalay, Brian's admitted he cares about Justin.  If Justin plays his cards right he'll have Brian admitting he doesn't want to part with the estate for Gus' sake.

Brian is starting to open his eyes about what his inheritance means to him, and it is amazing! The only thing is, that I still feel like he's going to sell the castle in the end.

Author's Response:

Well he hasn't done a complete 180 on how he feels about Kilkenny. Brian is very stubborn that way and lacking in sentimentality. That might be why you get the feeling he will still sell.

Reviewer: no sleep (Signed) · Date: July 03, 2014 06:22 PM · On: Chapter 11

The horse was a nice touch. I'm hoping Brian can come to a nice compromise with the inheritance.

Author's Response:

Thanks no sleep. I think you'll like the ending I have planned. I really had to decide myself how Brian was going to deal with it all becasue even I wasn't sure from the beginning what decision he was going to make. I've got it in my head now though. I hope the readers of this fic are not upset or anything at what I do... :)

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: July 02, 2014 10:07 AM · On: Chapter 11

Hey Sarah

Collin took Brian on a guilt trip.  I still don't think a business sale makes Brian a bad man.  The town could always purchase the castle and keep things just the way they are.   They only need a wealthy benefactor and I'm sure Maeve would know someone.  Okay, maybe not because if you google the town there doesn't seem to be too many famous people in this century. LOL 

Justin should have a little fun without Brian.  That way Brian's plan to make Justin think he is getting his needs met elsewhere would have backfired. 

I still can't wait to find out what Brian is going to do, but I should know in ten days' time.  Tick, tick.  Haha

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

Hey Flossee, thanks for the great review.

I don't think Brian's sale of his inheritance is inherantly (haha) bad either, but you'll have to agree that a truely good man would sacrifice the profit for the sake fo others. Although that would not be very Brian-like to do that. The benefactor thing is a good idea, as I'm sure BRian would sell to anyone regardless of who they were so long as they offered the best price (and maybe even slghtly less money since it would be an easy way to alleviate his guilt without acknowledging its existance).

I think that Justin having fun on his own is an excellent idea! Maybe then Brian will get a little jealous, hehe.

Last but not least, thanks so much for pointing out that terrible dealine again!! I'm nervous again now... must go write!

Reviewer: sophie'smom (Anonymous) · Date: July 02, 2014 06:09 AM · On: Chapter 11

I love that Justin is so on to him even Brian knows when Justin's not buying it. Good for Justin putting his foot down. If Colin (who knows so much) , Carrick(seeing Brian for who he truly is),and Declan(who knows Brian's ready to change some things in his life), were all rolled together...they'd be Vic. Great job with this chapter.

Author's Response:

Haha! I so agree with you on the assortment of supporting characters being like Vic. But I also think they're kind of like Debbie, since she's often the one pointing out the hard truths to Brian as well. And Justin is definately battle-weary---I mean Brian-weary at this point, so he's well-versed in his bullshit attitudes.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 30, 2014 04:55 PM · On: Chapter 11

Little bit by little bit Brian is coming to the conclusion that selling his inheritance is not the right thing to do.  He's admitted he loves Justin to his lawyer, and the fact that he's afraid of losing him.  Now all he has to do is admit it to Justin.  I can see Justin's face lighting up now.

Author's Response:

Yeah Brian has professed not to like change, but he's already changing here and in more ways than one.

Reviewer: balrogtweety (Signed) · Date: June 30, 2014 01:24 PM · On: Chapter 11

I think this chapter made Brian feel things he never thought before.  Maybe looking at Dale will change his mind.  Great update.


Author's Response:

Yeah you might call it "eye-opening"

All I have to say is thank goodness for the city of Dale!

Reviewer: debv3 (Signed) · Date: June 25, 2014 01:39 AM · On: Chapter 10

Brian is an idiot.

Author's Response:

He's got intimacy issues for sure. And he's overly-callous and selfish when he probably shouldn't be.

Reviewer: no sleep (Signed) · Date: June 23, 2014 01:48 PM · On: Chapter 10

I've never been a fan of threesomes but I may change my mind after this chapter.

Brian's thoughts at the end seem a little ominous. I'm almost afraid of the next chapter

Author's Response:

Haha, I am a huge fan of threesomes because I view them as an opportunity to highlight the connection between Brian and Justin despite the third party. Glad I could maybe change your mind, and with only a brief view of the threesome too! Brian's thoughts are showing his inability to cope with serious emotions of love. Love makes Brian nervous because it makes him feel vulnerable, and in Brian's mind, vulnerable is a baaad thing to be.

The heat from the sun must be too much for Brian as there is no other explanation for a car to hold his interest over checking out Justin's ass for him. :D  OMG, I love Brian when he holds Rhys back and tells him about the no kissing rule.  Lord Fancypants still seems to have a long way to go though in making (certain) friends and influencing people.    Now stop teasing as I want to know what is going to happen to the castle, pretty please. :D

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

Justin's Ass vs. Fancy Car.... hmm... yeah I'd go with the ass every time. Haha. But I like to try and find things for Brian and Justin to be interested in besides each other. Justin's got his art, as ususual, but I never forgot how interested Brian was in the cars he drove on the show. I thought it'd be cool to elaborate on that and make it a genuine hobby of his in this fic. Brian remembering (and enforcing!) that rule meant the world to Justin because it showed him that Brian cared enough about him to be posessive that way. And hey! I'm not teasing, it's called plot development! Haha but no I get that you want to know what happens. I have a few more chapters planned but I think you'll see some obvious progress in Brian's ability to 'make friends and influence people' in Kilkenny. He's got to grow a heart sometime. Thanks for the stellar review!

Well, I think the proverbial cliff is about to show itself.  I hope Brian gets a brain before that happens.  Great update.

Author's Response:

Yeah he should definately think before he acts too rashly.

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 23, 2014 08:24 AM · On: Chapter 10

Please don't tell me that Brian is just going to use this dalliance as a reason to try and push Justin off the cliff again? Hopefully the fact that Brian realizes he loves Justin will cause him to try to get closer to him.

Author's Response:

He may do a number of things. I think sometimes Brian's mood changes drastically and he recovers from it without completely isolating the people in his life. He's such a drama queen inside his own head.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 23, 2014 07:33 AM · On: Chapter 10

Oops.  Brian's admitted he's in love.  Maybe he'll decide not to go back to the old USA where Justin will go to college and leave Brian behind.  Maybe he'll keep him in Ireland and become Lord Kilkenney.

Author's Response:

Now that sounds like a lovely fantasy life for those two. Like them all shacked up in Britin, only in Irland instead of West Virginia! Lol. Btw: I love how you said "keep" haha.

Reviewer: nicolle_midnight2013 (Signed) · Date: June 19, 2014 06:21 AM · On: Chapter 2

Great chapter! I love your Brian. It does not allow for compromise: we love or hate. 




Author's Response:

I love writing a Brian who doesn't "cure" his character flaws for other people, lol.

Reviewer: nicolle_midnight2013 (Signed) · Date: June 19, 2014 06:17 AM · On: Chapter 1

Now that I finished writing my story, I began to read his. Great start! 

I laughed a lot with the banter between Brian and Justin. I love this intimacy between the two. 

A big hug!

Hey! Thanks for reading Fatima. Hope you enjoy it.

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: June 19, 2014 06:04 AM · On: Chapter 9

I love the hand holding and the fact Brian didn't say Justin was a Ross.  I'm so glad you get an extension as that means you don't have to wrap it up quickly.  I look forward to many more chapters now.

Cheers :)  

Author's Response:

I know I desperately needed that extension. Brian may not always say the words that Justin wants to hear, but I think in this chapter he definately said a little through his actions :) Awwww, so cute.

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 17, 2014 06:50 PM · On: Chapter 9

The situation with the castle is almost like the Stockwell incident, only this time I can’t help thinking that Brian is right about selling. I can see his point about bringing more jobs and commerce to the place. Justin seems more idealistic.

No Sleep I would totally agree with you if it were just the castle he were selling. If he does go through with the sale, he'd be essentially selling away the whole town and quite a few of the native's livelihoods with it. The commerce would be great...but only for the big business that would be habitating the area ;)

I love the way your mind works though. It's refreshing to see how everyone's point of view varies. :)

Author's Response:

I can see how the additional ripple effects on Kilkenny beyond just selling the castle, could tip Brian's actions into the unbelievable for you. I hope it doesn't detract from reading the story, for you. Hopefully Brian will redeem himself in your eyes by the end of this story ;)

Reviewer: no sleep (Signed) · Date: June 17, 2014 04:23 PM · On: Chapter 9

“Did you… Is that a picnic?”

“People say that Wilde fell madly in love with Douglass after his thing with Ross.”

“Colin was about to poke at something that he shouldn’t…”

“And his one consolation for the night was that Brian never did stop holding his hand.”

That picnic was a shock and a nice touch. It showed just how much Brian cared without the words. The situation with the castle is almost like the Stockwell incident, only this time I can’t help thinking that Brian is right about selling. I can see his point about bringing more jobs and commerce to the place. Justin seems more idealistic. I’m looking forward to where you’re going with this.
I loved the comparison of Wilde, Ross, Douglass to Brian and Justin by Colin. I was never a fan of Wilde but I had to do a little research after having my interest piqued. Ross seemed so much like a Justin, even nursing him back to health after an illness and in the end of having his ashes buried with Wilde. Ross stalked Wilde to the very end. Of course, this was all Wikipedia. ;)
It was a shame Justin was nervous about Colin possibly causing Brian t act like he was a leper. But I don’t think it was proper to ask about their relationship. It seemed intrusive.

Nice chapter!

(This may be duplicated. For some reason, my reviews don't always show up even though it says submitted, so I'm submitting again.)

Author's Response:

Yes that's Brian's way isn't it? He thinks words are meaningless and actions improtant, so to show affection he would do something for Justin, not say anything (plus he's too prideful to say sorry or admitt hat he's in the wrong). I'm glad you made the connection to the Stockwell incident. I think a lot of readers are oh so shocked at how selfish and heartless Brian is being, but as he showedin season three, he's been that heartless before.

I knew nothing about Wilde other than he was Irish, and he was gay. So I investigated to see if I could tie him into this story somehow, and voila: I discovered Ross and Douglass. Thanks for the awesome review and sharing all of your thoughts (which were not duplicated).

Reviewer: balrogtweety (Signed) · Date: June 16, 2014 11:56 PM · On: Chapter 9

With the history of the castle, I hope that what Justin is trying to tell him about his history will make him change his mind.  I love the idea of the claddagh rings.  I hope Brian gets a clue about the Douglas House.  Great update.

Author's Response:

I'm glad you liked those details. Thanks :)

Author's Response:

Me too. Thanks!

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 16, 2014 05:40 PM · On: Chapter 9

Brian is a contradiction.  It's great that he can do things in Ireland that he wouldn't dare do back home, because there are people there to remind him that he's Brian 'fucking' Kinney.  If only he could 'give a shit' about what will happen once he's sold the place and gone.  And Justin really isn't sure whether he's a Ross or a Douglas.

Author's Response:

I think Brian needs a wake-up call, don't you?

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 16, 2014 05:25 PM · On: Chapter 9

Nice try Brian...but your little surprise picnic and slight romantic gesture doesn't let you off the hook. And what a manipulating little shit you are trying to force Justin back to the states. I'm still not convinced that he doesn't harbor any guilt whatsoever about selling away an entire town. Hopefully Collin will manage to open his eyes a bit.

I know you don't want Brian's actions to come off as pure evil, but I'm afraid that's exactly the perception he's giving at the moment. I can't wait to see how he plans to redeem himself ;)

Author's Response:

Brian's selfish for sure. But he has no problem with that assessment, lol. Hopefully like you said: he'll see the ramifications more clearly and feel some guilt! I think Brian shoves off a lot of feelings in his life, refusng to acknowledge what would gnaw away at most other people. Him trying to push Justin away back to America might give credence to your suspicion that he is avoiding some feelings of trepidation over this decision.

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: June 15, 2014 12:23 PM · On: Chapter 8

What a great chapter.  Business man Brian Kinney v idealist Justin Taylor.  I love Justin not being able to sleep until they had spoken as that is very realistic, and I like the fact Brian knew exactly what he was doing.  I think both men have a reasonable viewpoint.  I can't wait to see how this plays out.  Hurry Back please.

Cheers :)  

Author's Response:

Glad to find that not everyone thinks Brian is pure evil now. It's like when he worked for Stockwell: all business. Lol, maybe Justin will start some posters defaming him! I will definately try and post soon. Just as I'm rushing to finish this story, my job hits me with no days off and ten-twelve hour days!! Bitches be hatin'.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 15, 2014 07:45 AM · On: Chapter 8

Here's hoping that Brian comes around to Justin's way of thinking.  It would be ashame to mess with the people's lives.

Author's Response:

Brian always showed on qaf that he had no qualms about messing with lives though, hehe. Like (even though this story is set somewhere in season 2) when he sought out and took the job working for Stockwell! Still, I agree with you.

Reviewer: bksbracelet (Signed) · Date: June 15, 2014 04:16 AM · On: Chapter 8

Oh dear we have a left versus right argument here someone is going to have to compromise. I look forward to seeing how this plays out

Author's Response:

I tried to use dialogue back and forth to show Brian's point of view, so that his actions don't seem like PURE EVIL, lol. You'd have to expect him to act this way and not be a bleeding heart like everyone else would tend to be.

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 14, 2014 04:51 PM · On: Chapter 8

Wow things went from comfortable to extremely angsty in 2.5 seconds. I don't believe that Brian would be quite so selfish as to not think about how the sale of the property would affect the entire town.

Author's Response:

I think that Brian's actions and thoughts are often very "every man for himself"-like. He figures: if he owns something that he can make money off of, then he should. He also judges a lot of the people from Kilkenny as backwards, so if they can't keep up with the times, then its their fault. Sink or swim, he'd say. I don't personally find that take on it to be evil, but I know most people have bigger hearts than Brian.

Reviewer: sophie'smom (Anonymous) · Date: June 13, 2014 10:06 PM · On: Chapter 7

Oh Brian Brian Brian. First you want time by yourself then you can't get enough of Justin. Enjoy your time in Ireland. It won't soon be forgotten. Nothing gay in Ireland. Ha!

Author's Response:

Brian shies away from anything resembling coupledom. I guess sex in the woods doesn't fit the bill, in his mind.

Reviewer: sophie'smom (Anonymous) · Date: June 13, 2014 09:01 PM · On: Chapter 6

Brian's generosity was misleading to the townsfolk. Let's see him get out of this one.
The festival sounds like fun. We know Justin will enjoy himself.

Author's Response:

Yep it made them thin k he was actually a charitable type of guy. Ha! Yeah right.

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: June 13, 2014 11:19 AM · On: Chapter 7

Yes, this sounds like the Ireland Brian and Justin will grow to love as they settle there permanently. :D  This is another fic I read at the mechanics today; I was stuck there all day so I occupied myself by reading from MW and every time I was reading a hot sex scene, like the one you described, I had to cover my screen when people passed by.LOL  I'm glad B/J had a little outdoor fun and I'm really happy Brian didn't go tricking.  Bonfires can be such fun.  I can't wait to hear how the legal battle for castle ownership is handled. 

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

The legal situation is a very unusual one; not something you'd ever see here in the states (where I live). But it definately adds a twist to the plot. As for their outdoor fun: Brian was more than happy to be entertained by Justin in this instance, but he's still a very cannon character here so he'll probably feel like he wants to trick around eventually.

Reviewer: balrogtweety (Signed) · Date: June 13, 2014 08:26 AM · On: Chapter 7

The was a great update.  Brian sure was doing his best to distract Justin.  Sounds like things will be changing real soon.

Author's Response:

Lots of drama and change coming due to the new legal proceedings. I think Brian was just happy to be at some sort of wild party. He can't live with "quaint" forever, lol.

Reviewer: later2nite (Signed) · Date: June 13, 2014 07:21 AM · On: Chapter 1

Very interesting first chapter. I like the way Brian is so IC - his seemingly indifferent self. LOL But something tells me Justin will break through the armor in Ireland.

(I'm going to read a chapter of this story every night until I catch up.)

Author's Response:

Oh I looove a good IC Brian. He won't change much in this fic. The ways that he does are indeed due to Justin and due to their trip together, but for this fic I'm trying to keep it believable to something that could happen in cannon. No suuuper lovery-doved willyoumarryme Brian here, lol. Thanks for reading and commenting, and have fun reading the rest!

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 13, 2014 05:21 AM · On: Chapter 7

Well you certainly found something for Brian to like about Ireland.  Thanks for the visuals.  LOL

Author's Response:

I think Brian would be a less grumpy world traveler if he just focused on having sex wherever he went. Preferably with Justin, for our viewing pleasure.

I haven't had the chance to leave many reviews, but I want you to know just how completely I am enjoying this Fic. You have Brian & Justin's voices down so perfectly. I am loving the playful, happy Justin, and the stubbornly gruff Brian... and the banter between the two of them is just perfect!!!!

Author's Response:

Well that's great that you think I've captured their voices so well. I don't want to go overboard, but I definately don't want to lose sight of who they are, especially considering that this fic takes place at some point in season two, before Brian is too lovey dovey. Thank you for enjoying it and thank you even more for telling me! Cheers.

Ohh wowww great chapter. Brian finally enjoying himself. And Justin ... haha ... I wish I good see a picture of him devil-red.

* hugs *

Author's Response:

I wish I had one for you! That'd be a sight to see. I'm glad you enjoyed this chapter. Brian was defiantely needing to have a good time somehow. He's such a sourpuss in this fic ;) *hugs*

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 12, 2014 10:47 PM · On: Chapter 7

Well that certainly was...entertaining. The music, dancing, drinking, fucking...What more could one ask for in a festival ;) Once the sun comes up though, the issue of the castle and the petition will again be at the forefront.

Author's Response:

I think Brian was more than ready for a distraction from real life problems. I can't have him being pissy and sullen all the time; that's boring! lol.

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: June 10, 2014 03:24 PM · On: Chapter 6

Hey Sarah. 

Sorry it has taken so long to catch up with your fic; long story short, I have been without internet connection.  I liked the horse riding adventure and the cottage with the thatched roof.  I love the big tourist attractions, but sometimes the smaller details can make a fic, like the food and the thatched roof leaking.  I'm not a big fan of over describing these things, however I think you got it just right.  I thought I had missed something in the fic until it was all explained at the end of this chapter.  I thought I was going loopy.  LOL  I look forward to the next update.

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

I used to be a humongous overdescriber. I would literally write whole paragraphs describing a room! And yeah, i figured that readers would be like: wtf?? they hardly were in Ireland and now thaty're leaving?? Thanks for the stellar review.

Reviewer: balrogtweety (Signed) · Date: June 08, 2014 02:11 PM · On: Chapter 6

Well now, I think this is good news to the town of Kilkenny.  Me thinks they are going to be there a while.  Great update.

Author's Response:

It is certainly better than Brian selling everything and hightailing it out of there like he was going to do. This will definately hold them up. Thanks for the comments :)

Reviewer: balrogtweety (Signed) · Date: June 08, 2014 01:37 PM · On: Chapter 5

Well stated. Justin is definately going to see the silver lining in this situation more than Brian will, lol.

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 05, 2014 02:19 PM · On: Chapter 6

Holy shit...Mauve is more like Debbie than I originally thought. I so did not expect this little turn of events, how Brian handles it is another story altogether.

Author's Response:

This little turn of events is what keeps the story going. Brian won't be pleased. He was ready to head off to Bali and tan.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 05, 2014 06:46 AM · On: Chapter 6

Lovely chapter and that was quite a twist at the end.  Everyone knew that the sale hadn't gone through but Brian and Justin.  LOL

Author's Response:

Yup. Now Justin and Brian will have to deal with that.

Reviewer: YumYumPM (Signed) · Date: June 05, 2014 12:58 AM · On: Chapter 5

I love how you managed to extend their stay, cause surely Brian won't be ready to leave anytime soon.  Enjoy the bit about the clover, very clever.  I hope that a red 4 leaf clover comes up.

Author's Response:

I'm sure Justin would love to see that red, four leaf clover too, though at this point I'm also sure he gives no credence to the old wives tale. Yes, I would think that something would have to happen to extend their stay. After all: it can'tbe over so quickly, can it?? But they're still planning on leaving soon!

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: June 04, 2014 11:32 PM · On: Chapter 5

Somehow I feel that the word interesting doesn't quite do this chapter justice. I have to admit though, that I absolutely adore Colleen's gift to Justin and the lore behind it ;)

Author's Response:

I was worried that I would find the subject matter in the chapter interesting, but that it would bore readers (I was nerding out with the horses pretty badly there!) so I'm happy you don't feel that way. The gift to Justin was one neat little story I dug up (pun intended) when researching Irish traditions. Glad you appreciated that :)

Author's Response:

Well first off I'm glad you're loving it :) Three days is how long Brian and Justin EXPECT to stay. But you never know what crazy shenanagins might happen! Brian can spout off all day long how little Justin means to him, but he really does want him.

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: May 29, 2014 01:41 PM · On: Chapter 4

I have a feeling somebody is about to be pushed off the Kinney cliff. Brian is not going to let Justin blow off the summer job helping kids that easily.

Author's Response:

At this point in their relationship (season 2-ish) Brian would definately take something like this as an excuse to push Justin away. Brian's at the point where he wants Justin BADLY, and of course that scares him. Because Brian Kinney is not supposed to want anyone that much. We'll see what he does...

Reviewer: Flossee (Signed) · Date: May 29, 2014 10:14 AM · On: Chapter 4

Hello Sarah.  I'm enjoying this fic, and I, similar to Justin in the first few chapters, love old country towns and my first instinct would be to make friends.  I am a little worried about the way the people of Kilkenny are being portrayed, even though this chapter states it is not through homophobia, as we have Irish friends here at MW and I wouldn't want to see them saddened by their countrymen being represented negatively.  I hope they can redeem themselves.  I love your banner; it's just superb.

Cheers :)

Author's Response:

Oh, it'll become clear that just as in small towns anywhere, Kilkenny has a mix of people who don't care about homosexuality and accept it, and others who are put off. Right now, almost all of the dislike coming Brian and Justin's way is due to their selling the castle, not their being gay. I think such a reaction is understandable. Hopefully as Justin and Brian meet more individuals, you'll see a change.

I'm so happy you like the banner. Marny did an equisite job with it! I told her my vision and it's so impressive how accurately she depicted all I was hoping for in the banner. I hope she makes stuff for me in the future cause she has mad skills. Thanks Flossee :)

I'm excited about this story and what's gonna happen next! It's like watching a romcom; A beautiful couple in a beautiful setting. Plus, i love Ireland. Although i've never been there, i'm convinced that i was Irish in my past life! Updates will be highly anticipated! :)

Author's Response:

I'm so leased that you compared it to a romcom type of movie. That tells me that the fic isn't coming off too serious, which is what I want (I have a tendency to try and make everything I write very serious). So tickled that you like the setting I chose. I'll admit it was hard to pass up tropical locations like Bali or Hawaii (my first instinct for this challenge), but I wanted to do something a little different so... yeah. Thanks for commenting!

Brian owns a castle?  Not if Claire's heard about it, I'll bet.  Love how young Justin makes Brian happy!!!  Somehow Justin has to walk that fine line between keeping Brian and the villagers happy.

Author's Response:

Yep he owns it. His mother and sister have no legal claims to it since the antiquated inheritance laws give it directly to the dude: Brian. Brian and Justin are definately at an earlier point of their relationship in this fic. Brian is less attached than we saw him in season five, and Justin is still an eensy bit immature (but he just matches Brian then).

Reviewer: MAFITA (Signed) · Date: May 21, 2014 04:47 PM · On: Chapter 3

I have really enjoyed reading the story so far!!! I can just imagine Brian's face of discomfort.... XD I got really angry when the lawyer said that the townspeople had been acting like the castle was their private property when it was not..... ¬¬* I mean, the castle wasn't even theirs and they had the gall of treating Brian and Justin like vermin?????? Like they were at fault!!!! Grrrrr...... I'm really hoping that Brian and Justin will put them in their place sometime soon.... However, I'm not overly fond of the idea of Brian selling all of his inheritance to those rich idiots of Royal Caribbean (or any other giant corporation for that matter).... If he's going to sell it anyway, I would've rather have him sell it to someone rich who wants the property to have their own little private heaven away from the civilization..... Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the next chapter!!! Hope to read you soon! Kisses!!!

Author's Response:

The townspeople have reasons for acting the way that they do. Just remember: they were operating under the assumption that the "Kilkenny family was entirely deceased and/or dispersed, and so never coming back. To them, it's not really stealing. And they're also suuuper small-town people, so any outsiders are automatically disliked. As for who Brian sells the castle to, I don't think he has many scruples about who he sells to, so long as he makes the most money possible. Because come on: it's Brian Kinney!

Reviewer: JAZZEPOET (Signed) · Date: May 21, 2014 01:24 PM · On: Chapter 3

So with this deal they are going to disturb the some of the towns original beauty? Hmmm...I can see where this would have the residents out of sorts.

Wow, I never thought that there could be so much impending angst involved in a short business trip. Update soon please :)

Thanks. I forgot to do that :(

This is a great start with both chapters.  I hope Brian calms down enough to realize that Kilkenny is a nice town.

Author's Response:

Brian can be a drama queen in his own way, and he definately evidences that in this story. He really does prefer the finer things in life, and he is a city boy at heart, so this little podunk town is quite the shock to his system! I'm with you though: it would be best if he appreciated Kilkenny for what it is.

Oh my, Brian is once again seen as the uncaring asshole in this situation. Why are the locals so angry about him selling his own castle anyway? Are they that adverse to boosting their economy?

Author's Response:

Brian is definately more self serving in this fic. I don't necessarily think that's a very bad thing. I kind of like him that way ;) But yeah, the locals have a reason not to like him. You'll find out later just what that is.

I already love this, can't wait till the next chapter.

Hey there, I'm so glad you're liking it! It has to live up to that banner you made!

interesting story, curious to see where it goes.

Author's Response:

You will see! Thanks.

Hi Sarah : ) I really enjoyed this chapter, the boys back and forth banter gave me the chuckles all the way through. 

This sentence – Although when it came to Antarctica, how did one perform fellatio in sub-zero temperatures? HA- very VERY carefully! we wouldn't want poor Brian going through the rest of his life with a new nickname like stubby ; )

Looking forward to more of this : ) Hugs ~ Janet

Author's Response:

Hey Janet! Thanks for the letting me know what you thought. Maybe someone else will write an Antarctica fic for the challenge, lol. Then we could find out the answer to that question! Thanks for reading and reviewing *reciprocal hugs*

Oh I like this already...I can't wait to see where this little adventure takes them next.

Author's Response:

I can't wait to show you! Thanks for commenting!

I'm so glad to see you start a second story! Life Saving Measures was the best fic to hit MW in months, and I love that we can rely on you to keep your WIPs updated. Thank the lord for you and Confused Bliss!

Author's Response:

Oh my god did you just rank my writing with Confused Bliss'?

Excuse me I have to go squee in private. I love you.

Yay, the first challenge fic.  I checked the reviews as I wasn't sure if it was a challenge fic or not.  Don't forget to add the category now you know it's there.  Tagsit we need some form of spring decoration please.  I like the start.  Good luck Sarah.


Author's Response:

*Does proud dance at being the first* Looks like someone was able to add the category for me, lol. I swear it wasn't there as an option when I posted though. But then again, I never see some of the category options when I post that I've seen on other authors' stories (??). Glad you like the -admittedly short-start. More to come soon!


I added the challenge icon for you once I realized you meant for this to be part of the challenge; the addition of the icon will need to be done by Admin. The category IS there under "QAF-US," and should be available to be added when a story is posted.;)  ~Kim

Interesting start I look forward to seeing where this goes

Thanks! I can't wait to show you :)

A very nice start and of course Brian is being difficult. Can't wait for more.

Author's Response:

Thank you!

Nobody ever said traveling with Brian was easy.  But Justin's got the right idea, having sex with Brian on another continent has got to be memorable and it beats doing without.  Nicely done.

Author's Response:

Brian is definately the whiny one in this story, lol. I think Justin will make the best of it. Thanks for the review!

Reviewer: Tagsit (Anonymous) · Date: May 20, 2014 06:29 AM · On: Chapter 1

Yay! A new story! I love the sense of anticipation! And, I got to be your first review! Can't wait to start reading. TAG

Author's Response:

Yeah it's for your challenge :) But I didn't see the CHALLENGE category choice when I was creating the story...
