Story Notes:



I recently discovered Queer as Folk and fell in love with Brian and Justin's story.  Although I liked the series finale, I hated not knowing if they stayed together.  I needed closure, and it needed to be realistic and in character.  So I devised this tale, and I hope it stays true to their story.

I owe a debt of gratitude to my beta, Zevgirl, for her tireless work in editing my writing.

 This work is my own, but the characters belong to the Cowlip team.  I hold no rights to them.

Many hugs and thank-yous to Marny for her hard work on the banner!  It's a perfect rendition of Justin's painting, "Broken."

I have not been using a beta recently, so I hope my writing has not been atrocious.  It's my fault for wanting to get these chapters out for all of you to read!  Hope everyone is enjoying it, and thanks for all the reviews!



8. Chapter 8 by Brynneth [Reviews - 26] (4254 words)

So, here it is, the final chapter!  I apologize for the long delay, but life has been busy.  In the interest of getting it out without further delay, I have not waited for my beta to review it, as she may not get to it for a while.  Hopefully, it still reads well.

If you enjoyed this, you can check out its companion piece, The Feline Approach to Brian Kinney.  I also intend to write more stories in this universe, so keep an eye out!
