Brian needs safety and control and I just can see him making that foolish decision to marry Michael... before Justin intruded his fantasy :)

Thank you for doing that; that was very thoughtful of you.  It was one of my personal favorites to write as well.;)  Thank you for the support!  It is greatly appreciated.  BTW, I'm back to writing now after my father's recent death, so I hope to have two new stories up soon, along with updates to my two WIPs.  Won't post the new ones, though, until they are completedly finished, but I'm well on the way now. *Hugs*  ~Kim

Hi, Kim!

Thank you for this amazing saga - beautifully written and deliciously long!

I loved your original characters - Sean and Kathy are like dream grandparents; Fin and Tony, so similar to Brian and Justin but at the same time so different. Alex is so much fun to read about :)

Of course my major interest are Brian and Justin and I'm happy with the life you made for them. Reading was interesting and exciting journey!

I hope someday you'll find time to visit this 'verse again - we wouldn't want this beautiful nursery to stay empty, right :)

Hugs, Nadya



Author's Response:

Hi, Nadya!  Thank you for all the feedback, and for reading this story! I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed it, including the other original characters.  Yes, we need to revisit that 'verse one day.  I would love to right at least a short sequel to look at their lives down the road with their little one. :)  I do like the idea of that. And I particularly love Fin and Tony's relationship, as well as the friendship that developed between Tony and Justin.  They both love very independent, strong alpha males, don't they?

Thanks again for all the support! That is so motivating to me as an author. :)  ~Kim

It's a really very interesting plot.
I'm not a religious person myself, maybe a little bit...
But I keep wondering what it's like to accept people so completely without censure even if you love them...

 



Author's Response:

Hey Arakiss

I wholeheartedly love the thoughts you have voiced here, as I sometimes think the same way.   I grew up believing what my parents did and my partner was of the same belief so I have never been faced with this situation.  However, I hope love would make a person tolerant of their partner's individuality (including religion).  This is a very profound review, which I love BTW, as I love insightful contemplation.

This review has made my day.  Thank you so much.

Cheers :)

 
Reviewer: arakiss Signed
Date: August 11, 2014 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Hi Flossee!
Of course I understand tolerance - when one is in love, one is willing to overlook small (and not so small ;)) flaws but somehow subconsciously the hope that with enough love that could be changed never fade. The thing is I have trouble with statements like "I love you the way you are and I don't wanna change you". Because for me love is about changes, growing up, learning how to compromise.
I'm babbling :(
The point is I wonder how Justin manages to accept Brian's lifestyle without even thinking about making any demands, without even thinking of possible changes.
I know there is people like this and I appreciate the way you wrote it ( I even thought you've gotta be having real experience with amish ;) ).
All I'm saying is that I'm not like this, maybe I envy it.
Just a little :LOL



Author's Response:

Hi Arakiss

I understand what you are saying. I believe you are commenting on "Define MY Brian".   Justin doesn't want to change Brian's soul the very essence of who he is, who he really is; still he doesn't want Brian reverting back to his learned behaviors of the past either.  However, I think they both grow in the relationship as they move forward and with growth comes change, which Brian notes in Justin's behavior in the final part of the series "Define His Will'.  No, I don't think you are babbling, but I think I might be. LOL  :)

I love that you thought I had a real life experience of the Amish community.  Thank you.  As I wrote this I kept thinking to myself how simple and rewarding their lifestyle would be.

I appreciate your thoughts and once again I must tell you how much I like insightful, well thought out comments.  I also must say I love the smiley faces, even the sad one, and the LOL's make my day brighter.  Thank you so much.

Cheers :))))

At least he started to paint and he has his daughter and his Brian to love.



Author's Response:

Hey Arakiss

Yes, it is very sad that Brian and Justin lost their son.  I really wanted them to relish their daughter and have her to help fill the empty void in their hearts that was left by their loss.  I also wanted Brian to be Justin's strength, his rock, when he went through his many struggles.  I needed to show Justin reunite with his family, if only for a short time, and I used Brian's thoughts as much as I could to show he was going through this too.  I think both these men could face anything together, but that's just my opinion.  Thank you for your thoughts as you know how much I appreciate them.

Cheers :)

I just re read this beautiful story 2 days ago - it's one of my favorites (with Together, of course).
And I do envy a little  those who will read it for the first time :)



Author's Response:

I just got an e-mail from someone who had read the whole thing (IHK+Together!) in one go, and I re-read the first chapter of IHK just for grins and thought "This is really good!"  :)

So I decided to post it here, thinking perhaps there were a few people out there who might enjoy it.  I am glad you did.  I enjoy having things posted on mags-nificent because they do such a good job, but you never know how many people read what you have there, and only get a handful of comments.  It's nice to get a readers' count, and it's fun to see what people who are discovering the story have to say!

I actually have a new QAF 1/3 written, but have not worked on it for a long time.  I got sucked back into HP fanfiction, and have discovered a couple other fandoms that have really inspired me, so...  I'm not sure when I'll have a new QAF, but I would never say never...

I love your alternate universe, your Brian - he makes so much sense - I never understood Brian's character in the show, he was supposed to be smart and intelligent...
Anyway, I'm looking forward for your new qaf fiction :)

Sorry, english is not my native language.
I was talking not about my right to dislike a story after reading it.
I just wish to not waste my time reading it at all, that's why I'll appreciate some fair warning.
About being the first to say your Brain is OOC - I'm not saying it's impossible for people to fall in love more than once, God knows it happened to me ;) I'm just saying that for me is totally unbelievable for CANON Brain to do so.
Have a good day!



Author's Response:

Ok! I get it now. I put a warning Brian/other on this story and said in the summary about another man but maybe you didn't see it! And I totally understand your point, as you're not the only one for who it's unbelievable for Brain to love someone else, even if I personnaly don't agree. It's the magic of this show, everybody feel strongly about it and I really love all the diifferent points of vue we all have.

 Thank you sincerely for your response :)

As I misspelled Brian in my previous post and having no way to edit and fix it, I have no other choice but shut myself up ashamed... I think I'll have a beer :-p

*hugs from Bulgaria*



Author's Response:

Aha, I love this lol

I agree with you, in the show, Brian only love Justin but to me that doesn't mean he can't love someone else. And if Justin was never going to return again, I just couldn't imagine Brian being alone for the rest of this life. So, I came up with this story. But I know that many people don't agree with or don't accept my perception. So okay, for you OOC means Brian/other and canon for me ;D

I love how people feel about these characters. This discussion is just great for me.

Love your comment about mispelling Brian, I do it so often too, I will join you in the "shut myself ashamed" categorie ;D

*Hugs!*

Hi, Alois :)

I admit I don't read your story anymore, but I continue to read the comments and I was confused - please tell me I'm not contributed to your frustration about writing what you want.
I understand that you are feeling tired and angry for feeling you have to defend yourself and you know what - you don't have to.
You have the right to write whatever you like, to take your story wherever you feel is right for you.
Now I'm sorry about my sharply comment, I was just caught by surprise whilst was looking for some comfort with my favorite couple and you know I've got my issues, but that's for me to work on them.
I think I am trying to say that you are a terrific writer and you should keep on writing!
*hugs*



Author's Response:

Hi Nadya, 

Don't worry, you 're definitively not responsible for what I now call my little self confident crisis lol. It was just an accumulation of little things with a little exhaustion that prompted me To write this little diatribe... Thank you so much for your kind words anyway, I sincerily hope you're doing ok, or as ok as you can be. Again, all my thoughts to you! :)

Take care my friend and *big hugs from France*

You made a really good point - a low self esteem could do that to a person...

I was thinking why mischievous Justin surprises me - well, because this is Justin we are talking about :LOL but most importantly I allowed myself be misled by Game of Thrones and we know that The North is all about nobility there :)


Which is kinda boring :LOL


I like your King of The North better :)



Author's Response:

Hey, I'm glad you have seen "Game of Thrones".  However, this fic doesn't follow that storyline or the "Gnomeo & Juliet" one; it is just where my brain got muddled and the idea formed.  I know, that says a lot about my state of mind.  LOL   Still, now you have mentioned GOT the only King I really liked was Renly Baratheon, King of the Seven Kingdoms and, SPOILER ALERT, he dies.   OMG, wasn't his lover just gorgeous? 

I'm glad you like this more relaxed King of the North, Justin, better than the boring ones in the aforementioned show, plus I hope he is more fun.   I love Justin so he won't really be too naughty.  Oh no, have I just given away too much with that comment.  LOL  You are bringing me way to much fun with these thoughts, thank you, as I know how you think about these things and I hope you don't mind me being a little light-hearted with it. :)))

I'm so glad you were able to read this after reading "Define His Will" as I know you like levity as much as I do, and sometimes it's good to get a break from angst.  Oh, before I forget, thank you, I had forgotten to add the anti-Ethan category, and you reminded me.  Yes, Justin is very naughty, but I don't think anyone can send him to bed without any supper. LOL  Thank you for letting me know you want more and that we have shared a laugh. :D

Hi, Flossee!


It's good to be here again <3


You are very welcome, the pleasure was mine - strange, unusual, interesting, exactly mine cup of tea.
"Tea Rex" - I was so sure you made that up, didn't know there actually is a tea named like that :LOL
So I definitely didn't get all the quips but nevertheless I had a lot of fun :)



Author's Response:

Hey :)))))

Tea Rex was me trying out some dinosaur humour.  Luckily, Ethan had changed jobs, as Tea Ethan just wouldn't have worked. LOL  I may have gone too far with punishing Ethan, but when I learnt the fact that the chamber pot 'gazunder' (= goes under) the bed I just had to use it and my callous disregard for Ethan's wellbeing went out the window, or under the bed so to speak.  LOL 

I'm so glad you commented on the quips as I think a lot people only found them from comments made in reviews.LOL  I really love people mentioning what they got from this, but to say you didn't get all the witticisms and still had fun, really makes me beam with happiness. :D)))))  Thank you so much.

I enjoyed your story very much, thanks, Flossee!



Author's Response:

Hey :) It's great to hear from you. 

Brian's vulnerability caused him to be placed on the Queen's throne.  I can be so cruel sometimes. LOL  Although, a grown man playing with dolls, sorry gnomes, haha; plus this fic ending with him giggling, maybe, just maybe, our more  effeminate man in this relationship does need protecting. LOL  Okay, I'm only joking.  I love Brian, and I really love that he can have a vulnerable side, while still being the Brian Kinney we all know and love, and I'm extremely chuffed that you commented on it.

Thanks so much for letting me know you enjoyed this somewhat strange fairy-tale. :))

Jennifer doing something, anything with Michael - what a strange concept. I don't believe I read something like this in the fandom so far.


I like your Brian, developing a friendship with Ben could be good for him.

Michael - well, he's Michael, true IC :)


If this is not a WIP, would you please tell me how many chapters are still there?
I'm just not good in waiting, but I definitely will be reading this when is completed.



Author's Response:

I admit, there are a few 'quirks' in the story, ones that we might not anticipate.  This is the only time in the story where Jennifer and Michael 'team up', but it followed with the story line of each of them wanting Brian and Justin in Pittsburgh for the holiday.

Regarding how many chapters there are in this story, I can't give you an exact number, due to the format I used when I originally wrote it.  But I will estimate about 10 chapters.

Thanks for reading and for your comments!!

Well, "someone else used him in a story on livejournal" is actually the famous and briliant Bliss Ink.

Good luck with your story.



Author's Response:

You don't have to be condescending about it (that's how it sounds).

I read that story on live journal. It was great, true, but you don't have to be mean to me because I this idea for a lot longer than before I discovered that story. I was surprised someone else had used Evan in a fic.

And praising Bliss Ink as if my writing is shit, it's not okay. You should at least give my story a try. If you don't like if, don't read, but don't start criticizing me. I don't know if you write, but writers pour a lot of time in creating something and it fucking hurts to have such words thrown without second thought.

WOW, where is this coming from?
I wrote only 2 sentences.
The first one was to indicate the author, because I really thought Kim and you don't remember who she was. And I love her writing - I'm not gonna apologise for that.
When was I mean exactly?
You didn't think that before, when I was praising your work, did you?


The second sentence was to wish you good luck with your story.


I apologise to everyone, who is stuck to witness our conversation and believe the mods will erase it, if I overstepped the rules.



Author's Response:

That's the way it sounded to me when I read it. I'm sure you know how interpretative thing you say on the internet can be.

I know you love my work, that's why I was surprised the see those words. Maybe the quotation marks, of you quoting me threw me off and made me think you were mean.

Well, now you decide if to stick around to read or not.

The cancer is back? I can't believe Brian wouldn't keep his promise...
I like your writing very much, thank you for sharing!



Author's Response:

Thank you for your comment! I'm glad you liked it!

As for Brian not keeping his promise - yes, this one is really controversial. On the one hand, Brian wouldn't make a promise he couldn't keep. But what if he thought that keeping this one would require a sacrifice from Justin? For me, this situation is similar to the one in the show. Why Justin was so angry with Brian for not telling him about cancer? Because he believed that they were real partners, which meant trusting each other, being there for each other. For him, as I see it, this very partnership was a 'promise' - a vow they both made in order to maintain their love, give it a right direction, so to speak. So when Brian distanced himself from justin, so-called 'harmony' was destroyed. And though each of them meant good, they couldn't be happy anymore.

In the story, the situation is pretty the same. But even if promise was something actually put into words (which, by the way, I doubt because for Brian it would be way too extreme thing to do), I believe, Justin's 'well-being' would still mean more to him (in canon Brian asked Justin to marry him but then pushed him away because he was afraid that Justin's decision was a sacrifice). As for Justin using the word 'promise', I imagine it's rather a figure of speech (let's say, if it's post-canon, 'promise' could refer to the wedding vows). In fact, their love itself was this very promise. But unfortunately, it didn't mean one thing for both of them. As a result, they have always had a lot of problems in their relationship.

Thank you once again!

Hi, my dear!  Please don't me too hard on Justin.  With his wealth and lonely life, I think he needs an objective opinion about his would-be suitor, and whether he's crazy to seek out a relationship with him.  This 'test' will definitely gauge Brian's sincerity, but I'll keep it a secret for the time being. :)  Thank you for reading this chapter, and for the comments!  I'll have the next part up very soon.  ~Kim

Summary: Feature

*** THIS STORY IS NOW COMPLETE ***

stories/1824/images/wp_ss_20161112_0007.jpg

 

Justin Taylor meant to tell his parents about his broken engagement, but a month and a half later he finds himself boarding a plane home to his wedding. Having stretched avoidance to its limits, it's time to come clean. A couple of drinks and two Dramamine later, Justin finds himself spilling his story to the tall, dark, and handsome stranger in the seat next to his.

Brian Kinney boards a plane to Pittsburgh in a last-ditch effort to save his business in New York, leaving the details to chance. An unexpected answer is delivered in the form of the bautiful blonde beside him. His openness, outspokenness and humor charm Brian. So when the blonde passes out before landing, he helps him off the plane- a good deed that leads to a colossal misunderstanding. The blonde's parents assume he's his fiancé. In a twist of fate, the mix-up might help Brian save his business, so he plays along, figuring he can help Justin too. All he has to do is stage a public break up convincing enough to appease Justin's mother.

Everything is just a farce and of course Brian Kinney doesn't do marriage- but what happens when he realizes that he really cares for the cheeky little blonde?

I can understand author's frustration even I'm not the one. In theory.

In reality, my rare comments are result of many factors.

- As a long time reader on MW I've realised by saying 'I love to know what you think about my story' some authors mean only praise. I personally received 'Are you a writer? If you are, you will know...' line. Therefor I prefer not to review even if I like a story in general, even if I can see the author has a raw talent but there are things needing working on. In those cases I don't review because I honestly don't intent to offend anybody.

- Writing in English with translator takes time, which I don't always have.

- Communication is a two way street. For example, if you decide to erase my comment for whatever reason (which is your right), remember your good manners and give me at least an explanation (which I believe is my right).

I hope not to be misunderstood - I love the fandom, I appreciate your hard work and am grateful that you share your stories!

My apologies to all banner creators! Your work is amazing!

Wonderful job!

I never believed stories where after Justin went to New York Brian regressed to his old pain management. In my opinion, presuming that is like believing he is frozen in time, incapable to change - concept, that is more likely in Michael's mind, than in reality.

This said, you have no idea how delighted I was with your story - thank you for writing and sharing it!

Looking forward for new one :)

Author's Response:

Thank you for reading - I'm glad you enjoyed my story! I agree that a post-513 Brian who reverts to earlier-season-type doesn't feel realistic for me. It's interesting how many of us seem to feel (and write) about Brian's growth but often reject that possibility for Michael. I'm not sure why that is. Perhaps it is rooted in canon inconsistencies and the trite (?) use of Michael off-and-on as a foil by which we can actually measure Brian's growth. Of course, many amazing stories posit that Michael and Lindsay must keep Brian 'forever young' so they have a fixed point of reference for themselves. And the wheel keeps turning :).

Summary:

Gift Request: angst, hurt/comfort. Justin+Ben friendship. Ben comforting Justin after fighting with Brian or after something bad happened. No character death, no bittersweet endings. If Michael or lesbians are in it, very little of them, or stories that paint them in a negative light. Everything else is fair game.

AU that happens somewhere in Season 2.

Hi, Kim!
This is wonderful! Thank you for coming up with this storyline - there are not enough historical B/J stories!
I love the period and am eager to read wherever you are taking us - first, because I enjoy the language and the very cautious and restricted way of communication then ( you can guess I'm a big fen of Jane Austin :D) and second, I trust you to always get our boys together.

The writing is captivating as ever - now I want more :)

Hi, my friend! I'm always happy to hear from you. :)  And I'm delighted that you are enjoying the story so far. This is the first time I've tried an historical story, so I hope I do it well. Thank you for reading, and especially for the comments! The next part is coming up soon. :)  ~Kim

Brian Kinney is a successful, wealthy, dashing wedding planner with a client list that includes half of gay (and straight) Pittsburgh. The one thing he himself never thought he would plan is his own wedding, simply because he was never in a 'relationship.’

A chain reaction of subsequent events is sparked.  Neither of them intended to be involved, but couldn't resist.   Who knows what fortune they have in store after that?...  *THIS STORY IS NOW COMPLETELY POSTED!*

Haven't written a review for a very long time... but this story provoked me.
My mind understand it takes a good author to evoke a strong emotions like this :)

Nevertheless I would've appreciated an anti/Jennifer tag, because nothing Lindsey or Michael or Mel probably did in this story could measure with being betrayed by ones own mother.
I know you believe you came with good reasons for this behavior ( seeing from a happy ending tag ), but sorry to say it, there is NOTHING in this world that could justified Jennifer for me.
And talking to Brian like she is o so mighty and blameless? The nerve...

Talking about loving Luke? Being a good father? All the time depriving him from knowing his other dad?
If I was Justin I would've take my son and move as far away as possible...
I believe that a true love can deal with a lot, but not everything, there are some lines that shouldn't be crossed.
(In real life, not fairy tales :) - referring to a real life issues tag here)

I hope I wasn't too harsh, if so, I'm sorry.

Good luck with your story and oh, welcome to Midnight Whispers :)

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for your long and kind feedback! I really appreciate it and I am glad I was able to evoke those emotions in you, even though they might not all be good :(

Unfortunately, there is no Anti-Jennifer T**, otherwise it would have been added. Maybe I should have added a comment prior to the story. Sorry, this is my first time posting in this fandom and I am still trying to figure out my way around it ;)

And don't count out Michael, Lindsay or Mel yet. We haven't seen what they have done. Five years is a long time where a lot of things have happened...

There is absolutely no doubt that Brian and Jennifer behaved wrong and they'll soon come to see that they might have miscalculated how Justin would react and see their reasoning. Lets just say Justin won't be happy with either of them for a long time to come.

Yes, this story has a Happy Ending T**, but happy endings can come in many different ways and forms. We'll have to wait and see how it will play out in this story ;)

WTF???
I sure as hell didn't expect this kind of behavior from Brian...

Everything've lead me to believe he's feeling guilty and miserable and fully understood that what he did was wrong and somehow I was expecting... maybe apology?

Silly me! Thinking that 5 years would be enough for him to recognize and admit that to Justin.

What was with the patronising speech?
Behaving like old Brian did when trapped in a corner - bringing water from 9 sources insinuating similarity with his experience with Gus and placing guilt on Justin's shoulders?

You keep saying Brian is a good father.
I'm starting to doubt that.
It's kind of hard to fragment one's personality to little segments - good father, but shitty partner?

He is so lucky Luke is only 5 yo...
I can't imagine how a teenager would react learning the truth of his 'loving' father behavior...
Justin aside... poor Justin...

Author's Response:

Poor Justin indeed :(

As for Brian...well, he's Brian. He has never been good at apologising and in his mind, he did the right thing for Justin. He did what he thought was best for Justin and only slowly begins to realise that maybe he has been wrong all along...

We can only hope that his behaviour will change and soon :( 

 
Reviewer: arakiss Signed

Oh, how noble of Brian - he's been telling Luke about Papa all the time.... and Gus too...
I can see Justin's heart melting... and it feels wrong and I feel sad.

"Brian was just being Brian" as a pardon is the worst favor his friends and family did to him and Justin use to never did that. He always called him on his bullshit.

I understand the need of compromises for the sake of your children - I only wish Justin is able to treat Brian with WASPy iced civility although I suspect he still loves him...

Because as I see it, respect should be an integral part of love and that suggests
allowing the person you love the right to make their own choices.
And Justin is not 17 yo anymore - so I hope ... :lol
You are doing excellent job making me twist my panties in a knot, as Debby would say.... no, I'm not thinking of her and Jennifer at all :evil

Author's Response:

Yes, Justin always called Brian on his bullshit - we'll have to wait and see if he's still like that or if he lost that ability. After all this was only their first encounter after Justin has found out about Luke. With Justin spending time with his son, more encounters are sure to follow ;)

I agree about respect being part of love and trust should be a part of love as well and at the moment there is neither respect nor trust, so love is far away from where Justin's head is at right now :(

More will be up soon :)

"If she had cared about Gus in any of her plans, she wouldn't have told you that and would have let you continue visiting him. It's what would have been best for Gus, to continue having a relationship with you..."

Brian and his twisted mind... as if what he did to Luke is any better... :(

Author's Response:

Twisted mind indeed, because to Brian those two things are completely unrelated. For him Gus already had a relationship with Justin and knew him while Luke had never met Justin before, so kind of didn't know what he was missing. So for Brian it's not the same :( But like you said: Twisted mind...

More will be up soon!

"Luke had no idea about the pain the adults in his life were going through right now."

Just wonderful.
Put the victim and the abusers on the same level.

I think maybe there is something very wrong with me, because I can never understand how Justin's behavior is for the children's benefit, how it seems other readers react.

For me this is not the way to teach your children how to deal with live, how wrong choices have severe consequences, how to have self respect and to expect respect from others.

Sorry for being harsh, but I've seen the fruits of this kind of sheltering, 'loving' upbringing. Living your live for your children instead of living it with them...

well, I guess I'm too angry and shouldn't write a review at all at the moment :)
I tried to stay away with no avail, though.

Author's Response:

No, there is nothing wrong with you. People just disagree and have different opinions. It's the way life is and it's also what makes life so interesting. How boring would it be if we all agreed on the same things and didn't have any disagreements?

As for me, I am totally not a vindictive person and I don't believe in revenge. For me staying angry at someone is a lot harder than forgiving them. For me it always comes down to: Is my anger worth losing this person for good in my life? And I guess a lot of that went into Justin's character as well...

Maybe something is wrong with me ;) 

From personal experience, I can just say that for me it's way more work and way harder to stay angry at people than to forgive them. Yes, forgiving is hard in the beginning and takes work, but in the long run it has always been worth it... But as said before - that's just me and my personal view. Of course it's different for everyone.

As for the children: Justin is just trying to keep them away from pain. Just because they are not being told the truth now, doesn't mean they will never know what happened. We know that Brian told Gus and Luke that he had done something bad. We know that Gus has had questions about Brian's and Jennifer's behaviour. We know that both boys have noticed the tension between Justin and Brian and that Gus has realised how angry Justin has been at Brian and Jennifer... They know that the bad thing Brian did had consequences for him. They know that Justin was angry with Brian and Jennifer because they have done something wrong and bad. Just because they don't know the whole story yet at this point of the story doesn't mean they will never know... And for me Justin's forgiveness is teaching them a way more important lesson: Everyone deserves a second chance! We all mess up, we all make mistakes and we all deserve a second chance to prove ourselves.

Anyway, thank you so much for your comment and for taking the time to leave it - I do appreciate it :) 

Please feel free to leave reviews whenever you feel like it - no matter how angry you are or what you feel :D

Summary:

AU after Season 4. The year Justin turns 23, he and Brian get the news that over the next year he's going to gradually lose all of his hearing. The series tracks the next three years of their life as they manage their new reality, after-effects of the bashing, their eventual move to New York, and their ever-evolving relationship. Told in first-person chapters from their points of view and some outsiders, with some angst, a lot of hurt/comfort, and loads of humor. Never any big relationship drama, and no one ever takes themselves too seriously.

And I have something going on in "real life" that is going to take up a lot of time over the next several months.  But I'm too addicted to writing to not write at all...so, there's that. ;)

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.

I Loved it!

Thank you <3 

Happy New Year!

 
Summary:

Brian contemplated what he wanted to say next; how personal he wanted to get. He still wasn’t sure whether or not Joan would hear a word of what he said -- she hadn’t reacted to anything thus far -- so maybe it was better to lay it all on the line. His lifelong mantra creeped back into his brain, and he scooted his chair a little closer to the bed. No apologies, no regrets.

--

Against his original plans (and, perhaps, better judgment), Brian makes his way back to Pittsburgh to see his mother one final time.

Authors usually are not very interested in Peter, or if they are, it's to make him gay - so thank you for choosing different path.

Preferring to dig deeper in the dynamic of Kinney family and exploring characters beyond their sexuality gives you the ground to reach the conclusion that everybody can choose to work on becoming a decent human being, despite their painful childhood.

Your Brian is exactly the man I've hoped he'll become in time, if daring to take the risk to be vulnerable (i.s. to fall in love :-))
I'm glad you gave him the opportunity to finally express his feelings to Joan, I think they've both needed closure.

Beautifully written, more please!

Author's Response:

This is the second time I've used Peter in a similar storyline (check out "Family Ties" -- specifically "The Grief That Does Not Speak" for another small Peter cameo). I like that Brian is able to find someone in his family who has had to walk a similar line, so that he doesn't feel so alone or lost in the tragedy of his own upbringing -- and now he and Peter can be something positive for each other. And yes, Brian definitely needed the closure. I haven't quite decided what Joan's ultimate reaction to it would have been -- but suffice to say, she DID hear; that part just isn't important to Brian. Stay tuned! I can't get this 'verse out of my brain quite yet ;) Thank you so much!!
