Author's Response:

awww - thank you so much Nichelle - this one holds a special place in my heart so I am thrilled that you liked it - mistakes and all...lol...it still makes me tear up when I read over it

with so many views on my stories and so few responses - I lost my desire to share - and let my story ideas be for my own pleasure only - lots of plot bunnies that hop around in my head,  but no ambition to complete them and post

still - it was fun to be part of the SOS writing fest - best time I've had writing in quite some time

loving life

Summary:

You'd think it was a Christmas fic wouldn't you? If that's what you're looking for - best to just move on - ‘cause there is no Santa here...

...instead, what we really have is a series of snippets in which our favorite QAF characters happen to overhear the boys in the throes of passion - and can hardly believe their ears...

Some canon - some definitely not - some that could be - with timelines that work  for this story - all showing a ‘depth of love' that is only Brian/Justin - and for me, will always be!

Welcome back, Charle!!!! So proud of YOU for getting back in the saddle and that you've found joy in creating again!! 

Now for the story: SMH.... why did you feel the need to turn me into a Sappy Mess? LOL The last chapter was soooo worth the wait. I absolutely LOVED the fact that everyone had to examine their preconceived notions of who Brian was in their minds vs. Who he is to Justin. I especially enjoyed Em's mental response to Bottom! Brian and his understanding that the act was so much deeper than what was perceived on the surface.  I also LOVED that plate of STFU you served Mel and Lindz who were always prejudging the pair -both subtly and sometime not so subtle. Finally the BDJ dynamic will always be special to me. Daph was always willing to make a big pot of "Cut the BS" and serve it in healthy, heart doses to B & J. It was only right that she be there to glimpse the beginning of their next stage.

Great Job, Charle!!! ({MANY HUGS})

Author's Response:

oh Nichelle - my heart is just swelling - what an overwhelming review - so thought out and full of encouragement - your support has meant more to me than I can tell you - and it thrills me to the bone to her that you liked this story - and share a few of my favorite moments - Emmett's response is by far my fav - and am always happy to have Mel and Lindz eat a little crow...

I wrestled with actually having Daph overhear the proposal, but in the end I couldn't picture it any other way...

thank you so much for everything - first chapter of the new story should by up within the week

I am so fascinated and enthralled by this fic! Justin and Molly are two sides of the same coin, only one male, one female. Both are some real go-getters and not willing to stand idly by while life kicks them. It was also WONDERFUL to see Jenn react this way. I love a proactive Jennifer!! Like any good mother, she's not going to let any information she can find stay buried. Can't wait for the next installment! Happy Writing!!

Author's Response: You know the old saying mess with her cubs and the lioness will attack without mercy....well that is definitely the case here. Jennifer felt something wasn’t right in her gut and isn't going to hesitate to act on those feelings. Nothing is more important to her than her children's safety and wellbeing. As for Justin,he may not have completely shown his claws just yet but when he does LOOK OUT!

LOL!! I just posted Chapter 22 a few days ago (Time's Up) where it happened at Brian and Justin's Commitment Dinner. Michael had arranged for a surprise for Brian and Justin (moreso the latter). Brian got to take care of the "surprise" and Justin finally got to hit Michael while he was repeating what he'd told Brian about leaving Justin for dead. And Emmett tried to help Debbie see that Michael meant every word of it.

Think I might take the Em storyline out of this one too. I know The Michael-interruptus is already being added to SOWK Part 1, so this could definitely be worked in. D-R-A-M-A on ALL  fronts! Thanks Deb!!!



Author's Response: Yay!!! And you're welcome! :) I'm so glad you are using both of those bunnies! They are two of my favorites. The Emmett one is kind of special to me because I've always thought he would be a great dad if given the chance. I've only seen one fic with Em as a father and in that one he was more a sperm donor for Mel. She didn't really let him have much contact with their son. As for Michael-interruptus, a lot of writers have him interrupting B/J a lot, but it's always explained away by Michael saying that B/J are always having sex so it's hard not to interrupt them. I think that's a bit of a cop-out so I thought maybe there's a bit more to him constantly showing up at just the wrong time. Once again, looking forward to more of your stories! Deb

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!!! OMG my sides are ACHING right now!! The title is absolutely FABULOUS and accurate! So much to address here...

First, I would be remissed if I didn't thank you for the shout out and accepting my little input, such as it were. Remind me to call a priest at my earliest convenience for a Mikey-cism. It just has to happen...LOL

Secondly, Michael needs a Brian-cism or a new brain. Better still he needs one of those things from Men in Black that erases his memory or what he'd like to think is his memory. I would also suggest a WHINE-ectomy as soon as possible. Every single line I read from this character, the whine is unmistakable. 

Third and MOST important is you have done a spectacular job with this fic so far! I am so proud and honored to be writing with you!

Happy Writing,

Hey Anne,

Another great chapter although I am bias regarding the Rat issue. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York where the rats could be confused for cats. Actually, they would fight and harass the alley cats or stroll across the street and dare you to hit them...LOL Definitely a sight to behold, let me tell you. My only concern is what they will gnaw on when their teeth begin to grow. The last thing one would want is for Lily to wake up one day and notice their teeth protuding through their jawline (yeah I've seen that kind of craziness too...not much you don't see in NYC).

I know Brian is going to have a fit which I am ultimately looking forward to. His explosions are EVERYTHING and he generally says what we all want to say or are actually screaming at you through a computer screen...LOL

As far as a baby... *Deep Sigh Here* I'm torn. As I mentioned, I like Eric but since this is written as a B/J fic, I don't know how I would feel with Brian left with three kids (if you include Gus although he lives with the moms most of the time). Yes it would add to the drama as a whole but at what cost to the psyche of the characters? I'm usually not an emotional person (other than laughter and anger by turns) but I know I would 'ugly' cry if something happened to Eric and Bri becomes a single parent in that way. The words deperate and desolate come to mind and I would be right there with him.

On the flipside, I under no circumstances want Justin and Nathan to have a child or even contemplate the idea (I know you are either cringing or laughing at me right now), I just couldn't take it. I will revert to Lily's age in spirit if that occurs and at 39 I'm not sure how attractive I'll look throwing a tantrum....LOL I know you have to go with the leading of the story but PLEAAAAASSSEEEEE (see my transformation has already begun) I'm begging you not to do that!

I remain amazed and enthralled by your gift!

Much Love and Success ALWAYS!

Author's Response:

Hi Nichelle!

I lived in New York for about five years, so I totally understand where you are coming from. Domesticated rats, like fancy rats and dumbo rats, are quite different than street rats that's for sure! I once had a rat run over my feet on John Street in the Financial District. I was wearing flip-flops! But I had been living there long enough to be jaded so I just froze, shook my head, and called it a day. A few of them can be nasty. Domesticated rats supposedly make wonderful pets though so I think Lily will enjoy them. Luckily overgrown teeth only happen when a rat is sick and I'm sure the pet store associate gave them pamphlets on what to watch for. If they overgrow and they aren't sick, usually that just means they need more to chew on to file them down or a tooth has been knocked out of alignment. A vet can actually trim their teeth. Brian and Eric are both wealthy people so I'm sure footing the bill for that, should it occur, isn't much of a hassle. ;)

Brian is not going to be happy. Eventually he will be fine with them since Lily loves them so much but he probably won't want to touch them unless he's forced to lol.

I understand the baby situation might be tough since will eventually become Brian/Justin. I wish I could tell you more about what's to come. Of course I've given away that this journey will end up being a long and hard road for all involved so there's one hint.

Lol! Don't worry, I'm laughing. ;) Nathan isn't ready for kids. He is very conflicted about having children of his own due to his upbringing. He's good with kids but his feelings about raising them may become another conflict.

I'm glad you like this story so much! Thank you for reading and reviewing! Love and success to you as well!

Great job comparing and contrasting what Brian feels in regards to both Eric and Justin. His inner conflict is palpable! My heart really broke for Justin in this chapter for so many reasons. Watching another man reap the benefits of all your hard work in opening up someone like Brian; to lose him to someone who is actually a decent person and seeing that he is well and truly happy is probably the hardest thing for Justin. I wonder how Justin is going to handle drawing Rage and JT without breaking down. I mean yes, Brian taught Justin a long time ago how to separate business from personal feelings but that may have been easier to do before when they didn't see each other. Now that they are friends (or trying to be just friends) that's going to be a real test.



Author's Response:

Hello! Justin is definitely taking it harder than Brian overall but both of them feel very conflicted over their feelings. I do think there is probably a little jealousy on Justin's behalf but he is truly happy that Brian is happy, even though it breaks his heart a little to think of the past. And not only does he see that Eric is a good person, he is becoming friends with the man as well. I think Rage will be hard but it will also be a cathartic experience for him. The drama will slowly end up picking up though in the next few chapters and Brian and Justin will end up spending more time together.

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Nichelle!

I'm sitting here with so many mixed emotions...

One one hand, I am happy for Brian and Eric. You've managed tomake me care about Eric (how the hell did you do that?)...lol The glimpses of the ceremony were touching!

On the other hand, my heart aches so badly for Justin. I actually had to fight back tears more than once on his behalf. First with the restless night, then with the kids and them asking why he isn't a dad...then the last scene between Brian and Justin and their own private 'goodbye.' That I think tore me up most of all but it says something about each of their characters-- Brian loving Justin enough to keep his promise about the rings to Justin and Justin's ability to love Brian enough to let him be happy with someone else.  

I am so excited for the coming update even though I'm still so torn...lol Happy Writing!

~Nichelle



Author's Response:

I understand completely, Nichelle. I am pretty pleased with myself when it comes to making you care about Eric. ;) My aim was to make sympathetic and likeable love interests who truly mean a lot to Brian and Justin. 

Those were harder scenes to write, I'll have to admit. Justin is to the point where he really wants children so it's hard for him to face the crossroads he's at with Nathan. He doesn't have to have them now but he wants confirmation that he will have them one day. He doesn't want to leave Nathan over it though. He cares about him too much to do that. But that doesn't make it any less tough.

As for the rings, in a way it was a goodbye but it was also confirmation that they will always love each other. Of course, that might be conflicting later on but as of right now they accept each other's happiness with other people. It doesn't make it any less bittersweet though. 

Thank you so much for reading Nichelle! I will try to have the update up sometime tomorrow. You will probably still feel torn, not gonna lie lolol.

LAWD!!!! Where do I begin?!?!?! 

It was nice to see Michael FINALLY acknowledge Justin and Brian's realtionship even if it was in the context of Brian and Eric's wedding. That was touching. Also touching was Gus' toast which included Justin and how woven into the fabric of Gus' life he is. I loved the three-way dance-- I actually laughed and it made sense that the two people who were so instrumental to getting Brian to the point where he is happy in his life should be able to have a relationship with him without the usual jealousy. Just another example of how men are different from women...LOL 

My heart is extremely heavy for Justin! 'Poor Sunshine' is a term I do not use lightly. Although I applaud Nathan's motives for getting out of it now when there isn't anywhere for them to go, I abhor the timing of it all. Yet, I understand it... hurt now, heal later. I get it, I really do but OMG Justin! With everything he is already facing, he's alone again and THAT HURTS! I know it's all for the greater good but Jeez, Anne you've made me feel too much again..LOL

As always, I'm looking forward to the next update of Intersect. I'm going to go and head for the JB now and get my mind right again! Hugs!

~Nichelle



Author's Response:

Lolol, Nichelle. You're too funny.

I think Michael has acknowledged the B/J relationship before. He has told Justin, "He does love you." because he knew that much was true as well as stood up for Justin when Brian was taking 9,000 steps back in the middle of season 5. Not that Michael didn't call him the trick who stayed too long and pull that shit in the beginning of season 3. Michael was so back and forth but I do think he got better after he met Ben for the most part. I think Michael arrived to a place where he is just truly happy for Brian and how far he's come. He knows Justin deserves credit for that as well as Eric. I think it would be hard for both Gus and Michael to deny that Justin and Eric changed Brian for the better and that they are still both a big part of their lives. 

As for the dance, that made me happy to write. The jealousy is surprisingly low with those three. ;)

Poor Justin indeed. It definitely wasn't the best timing on Nathan's part. I don't think he knew that Justin just found out about his father's diagnosis. Justin was probably waiting to talk to him about it at home. I think Nathan will feel very guilty about it, not that he doesn't already but once he evaluates what happened he will look back and think, "Shit, I could have handled that better." I think seeing Justin with the kids as well as Molly and Hunter facing the trials of being in different places (physically while Justin and Nathan are in different places emotionally) played huge roles in Nathan making that kind of decision. He loves Justin immensely. Justin is his first love. He wouldn't let himself be touched or be loved because he thought he wasn't worth it so this will be awfully hard on Nathan and, once Justin gets a little bit more of a grip, he will worry about Nathan's mindset after the breakup. 

Hope you didn't drink TOO much of that JB! ;) You'll need some more in the upcoming chapters mwhahaha.

Thank you for reading and reviewing!

 Wow! So much content here.... I really do hope that although they can't be together, Justin and Nathan can indeeed be friends. That young man has been through so much that he really needs true love surrounding him, even if it's just platonic. I also think he should tell Petra who is like Daph was to Justin. I think Justin and Petra are the best people to help him get rid of the guilt, which I think torments him the most. That's something a friend could do even better than a lover would. 

Another stellar chapter, Annie and I can't wait to read more! 



Author's Response:

Nathan definitely needs to surrounded by love in his life. He needs more than the average amount as a way to make up for the lack of it in his childhood. Justin does love him deeply in a romantic sense but, as you know, this story does end with B/J so it will be a process getting them to a solid and comfortable friendship. However, Nathan will be very present in the rest of the series. :)

I agree that Petra should know. She will probably find out one day. Thank you for reading and reviewing, Nichelle!

Hey Annie,

First I would just like to say AGAIN that you are doing a WONDERFUL job with Intersect. My emotions are all over the place, especially in this chapter. I feel like a damn traitor because I'm happy for Brian & Eric. Yet I feel so miserable for Justin. In my mind, when Justin said that he would never have a husband and a baby, I kinda thought that he's beginning to see himself as some sort of a fixer; like the guy only good enough to fix what's wrong or hurt within his partner of the moment only for them to leave and find someone else. And that really broke my heart even as I agreed with Brian that if he wants a child, he's financially stable and should make that happen for himself. So YES!!! I stay torn with this amazing world with REAL LIFE ISSUES you've created!

And Secondly, To the person (although that's NOT what I'd like to call her right NOW) who is saying that Nathan should "get over himself:" take a powder and chill out...or better yet DON'T review!! As writers, we are NOT obligated to tell the story YOU want but to stay true to our craft. Whereas I understand your frustration on Justin's behalf, you have disregarded the struggle of Nathan as a fictional character and VICTIMS who face this same issue EVERY SINGLE DAY. I know because I was one of them and even now 27 years later from the very FIRST inicident, I am STILL affected in some capacity.

There is an old adage: "If you can't say something nice, DON'T say anything at all." This should be a going motto among reviewers particularly because you don't have the knowledge or capability to understand what the AUTHOR was going through in delievering QUALITY work. Even if you are a writer yourself, you can't possibly understand another's thought process or the agony of writing a work which puts you as the author in such a vulnerable place. What we AUTHORS don't need is NEGATIVITY!! So please be courteous, conscientious and kind when leaving a review. We don't mind CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM but we do mind outright FOUL comments.

Annie, GREAT JOB ONCE AGAIN!!

I'm going to interject here.  We do allow 'constructive criticism' of an author's work.  But the types of combative comments to this story have been far and above that, even though the writer has made it clear that this is not just a B/J story.   That is the writer's decision to make.  Some readers will like certain plots, while others won't.  If any reader persists in repeating the same type of criticism over and over again, however, they either need to move onto another story that is more to their liking, or risk being banned for harassment.  The choice is theirs.

I cannot stress enough that the best response to such behavior is not to respond at all or delete them.  Easier said than done, I know, but the best approach.  This site is here to support writers, not condemn them, and neither Bob nor I will allow it to denigrate into a battlefield.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Nichelle. It took me a while to answer the more recent reviews of this story and I wanted to come up with the right words for yours. I understand the conflict that this story brings to B/J shippers but I think it's important to remember that both this story AND the show are fictional and, while it is totally okay to feel the need to choose a side or not like this story's plot, it is also important to remember that the author is a real human being. And I completely understand defending characters. I did it with that person's review. But I feel that I did it for different reasons than she did when it came to her complaints. I feel that Nathan could represent a certain percentage of survivors and it isn't right to tell a survivor to get over himself. And not because it will hurt Nathan. Nathan is a figment of my imagination. But because it can hurt readers who have gone through similar things. It's a poisonous viewpoint and I am personally glad to have my defensiveness justified by your counterargument. I can't promise that she saw it, but I hope that if she did, then it gave her something to think about. If her claim is true, then I hope she realizes that not everyone can "get over themselves" as quickly as she assumably was able to.

I understand constructive criticism but facing THIS kind of petulant behavior is very trying. I know you have faced similar things with SLA and it really isn't fair. I try to take it as a compliment is some ways. Obviously the story is making them feel. But you can also understand how frustrating it is.

Now onto your first paragraph!

I think it's okay to feel torn! It's an upsetting time for Justin and Brian and Eric are extremely happy with their own lives. And I think you are right when it comes to Justin thinking of himself as a fixer. Even I can't truly imagine how he feels right now. I think he logically knows that Nathan needs to fix himself more than he was able to. Like the saying goes, you must love yourself before you can be loved by others. While I don't think you can't be loved if you don't love yourself, I think that a relationship can only be successful if you get to the point where you are at peace and can be on your own. You shouldn't just survive off of one person's love and praise. You need to be able to be an individual in order to be confident. Nathan had that in some aspects (like his talent) before he met Justin, but when it came to his personal life, he didn't. So I think that, after the hurt starts to die down a little, he is going to aim for that. It will be a rough road though and, of course, this isn't the last you have seen of Justin and Nathan. Their relationship isn't cleanly cut off by any means. They are too close for that and they love each other too much. But I think that, when they become friends and fall into becoming comfortable with that, they will be extremely close. 

And I think Justin should have a child too! I think he's financially stable and confident enough to raise a baby by himself. It isn't ideal when it comes to his personal goals, but there's no need to wait and keep hoping. That way, when the right man comes along, Justin will know that he and his child are accepted.

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing, Nichelle. It truly means a lot.

 

Hi, Kim! I also thank you for your input. My comment section can get a little heated but I hope this was directed more towards other reviewers rather than Nichelle. What the reviewer said was insensitive and I know it upset Nichelle greatly, since we were talking when it popped up. It got us both a little angry but I think she handled her response well (albeit with a lot of passion ;)) And I completely agree. Next time I will just delete them. I usually do with my hateful comments but sometimes when I feel that the reviewer is toeing the line, saying something troubling, or there's just a misunderstanding, I want to make my counterpoint. Sometimes it starts a good conversation and sometimes the returning comment is even more shocking or combative. This story definitely gets some surprising responses.

Sorry I couldn't review before now BUT I am truly in love with this story! At core they are still the Brian and Justin we know and love but with a new twist, depth and dimension. Chapter six had me crying....lol and believe me, it's a true testament to your gift as a word artist to get me feeling what the characters felt in those moments- in that head space they were both in. I loath Zach and I know he's somewhere plotting and planning but I'm keeping in mind that you only write happy endings for these two darling characters.

You definitely have a fan for this story! Kudos!

Author's Response:

I am glad you are loving it, Nichelle! It is interesting to write. It is the first supernatual story I have ever written and it's definitely the most sexual story I have written so the more in depth D/s sex scenes are new ground for me. I'm sorry I made you cry! lol. Brian convinced him otherwise so I hope you could let out a relieved sigh once that happened. Zach is plotting to a point. He is a bit of a loose canon but also busy and methodical. I think he wants to give Justin a false sense of security before moving forward. Of course his brother going against him my cause some issues for poor old Zach. So far I have only written happy endings for these characters and this story is no exception. In the future, who knows? But with the boys facing so much drama, they deserve a happy ending here.

Glad I have a fan! I'm becoming quite a fan of yours as well! Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Kudos for making me crazy about this fic! ~Nichelle



Author's Response:

Sorry to send you through the wringer! Lol. It is supposed to be a cracky and funny story but I do tend to get angsty. At least the angst is over the top, like most of the story is. Marilyn has some control issues she needs to work on. She also tends to overdose her victims on her spell lolol. Brian is totally desperate at this point. He is not afraid of expressing his feelings anymore, that's for sure. Justin always had most of those memories but it took reliving them to realize how much he really wanted to be with Brian once again. I'm sure it was an emotional time for him haha. I'm glad you are having a blast reading it! The final three chapters should be up within the next week!

Hey Darling! Just catching up with this story and I can't wait for MORE!!! OH Good God's Garage where do I start??

I am absolutely EXCITED that Brian and Justin have chosen Cynthia for the baby. I wanted to smack the fire out of Lindsey and Melanie several times during the series for the way they discounted Brian's feelings/ role in Gus' life. It's nice to read fics where they get their comeuppance for that and they preconceived notions are proven false. With that in mind, I have to say it was also REFRESHING to see Melanie as the voice of reason when speaking with Lindsey and Michael about Brian and Justin's relationship/parenting of Gus. I think this is finally opening her eyes and seeing the Brian that Justin has seen since night 1.

As always I want to put a muzzle on Michael. Honestly, I don't know how Ben did it in the series and I certainly don't while reading the various stories. I always find it strange that in a friendship 15 years in the making, Michael never got to see and understand WHO Brian was underneath all the bravado. But I guess we can attribute the saying "People see only what they want to see" to Michael- a character who refuses to accept change and has no filter to accept reality. I seriously hope reality takes a big bite out of his ass big time...LOL

My prediction: Michael and Lindsey will lose their minds once the baby arrives. Gus will go stay with his Dads. And Melanie will restore Brian's parental rights so that Michael can no longer use that as a Brian Bashing Tool. Well at least that's what I would love to see happen. However, I am LOVING your story as is! Although I will continue to follow this, I can't wait until it's finished so that I can read all the related fics back-to-back again. You've done one helluva job on the series so far and I'm HOOKED!

Happy Writing!

~Nichelle 



Author's Response:

Nichelle:

  First, let me say thank you for the well thought out and generous comments you left on the story.  As a writer, I aprpeciate each and every comment but is always nice to have a long discourse.  

Cynthia seemed to be a good choice for the surrogate.  I know in many stories, folks have chosen DAphne, but I didn't want that for them.  I thought Daphne was better suited to being an Aunt than a surrogate mom.  The time that Justin and Daphne had sex brought way too much angst to their relationship and I just didn't think that was a good combination.  

I totally agree about Ben.  It just seems wrong that anyone would stay with a spouse where it was obvious that their feelings for someone else are still very much to the surface.   Michael wants Brian and he really isn't ready to accept that Justin has him.

Not going to address your prediction-  it will spoil the story.  Glad that you are enjoying the story and I hope the ending will be good for you.

By the look of this chapter, and thanks to wanton-speaking 'adults' (I'm certainly using the term loosely), the next chapter will probably be named "Ode de Tantrums" starring Gus Peterson-Marcus (Kinney)! I sure hope that B&J can reassure him and remind that poor darling that they have NEVER lied to him unlike the other pain in the ass adults (there's THAT word again) in his young life. Lindz, Mikey and Deb (possibly even Mel by default) should all be tarred, feathered and GAGGED throughout the remainder of the baby wait! 

In the meantime, thank you for giving me a well-timed and well-written diversion from my own work!

Thanks for thoughtful comment.  I don't hide my dislike for some cannon characters and I write them in the future in the same vane.  Lindsay and Melanie only want Brian for the money he contributes while Lindsay has fantasies of the nuclear family with Brian as the leading man.   I can't imagine Brian forgetting Gus, even with a new baby.  

I'm thrilled that you are enjoying the story and it is keeping your interest.  Updates are soon coming.  Just need to find a new beta-  if you know of anyone- please pass their name to me.

Hey Sandy! I'm so happy you updated this and not a moment too soon!

Well, it's certainly NOT hard to discern just why Lindsay wants Gus back in the household, now is it? Not only is he the built-in babysitter, he's also the long-hoped-for and free maid she's always wanted. It must kill her to know that if she wants a clean kitchen, she'll have to get off of her rusty, dusty ass and do it herself! I'm glad that Brian put the call on speaker so that Justin could here the conversation himself. Not only that, but it kept Brian calm and not apt to give Lindsay any ammunition she'd think she could use against him. Smart move!

As for his conversation with Ben, I really agree that he needs to spend more time with Jenny. Michael, as always, is a non-factor and unimportant in the grand scheme of that little girl's life. I really hope that if and when Ben has her, that he doesn't tell Michael his plans at all. He'll just use Jenny as an excuse to be all up in Brian's face, place and space. The arrangements should be between the 'adults' Ben, Brian and Justin while letting the 'kids' Mel, Michael and Lindsay keep playing by themselves. It's obvious that the latter three will NEVER grow up!

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Happy Writing and HUGS,

So glad you are enjoying the story, Nichelle.  Gus is LIndsey's little helper or in her case, big helper around the house.She misses him for his work, not so much for being her child.  I hope my muses find a way to help J.R.  This story has a mind of its own and for a short ( supposedly 2-4 chapter tale) it has grown a lot.

Hey Sandy! EXCELLENT Chapter! I can't wait for Lindsay and especially, Melanie to get theirs. I really don't think she cares for Gus at all. He's Brian's son and a difference would always be made between Gus and her daughter. Lindsay is... LAWD HAM TURKEY, there just aren't enough words in ANY language to say how much I loathe her in this. She is the worse kind of abuser; the kind of viper that you never see coming until she hisses just before striking. I really can't wait to see her get hers.

Hopefully, Michael will stay out of it, keep his BIG MOUTH shut for a change and actually listen with open ears, instead of the selective hearing he's known for. Even Deb, isn't defending and barking up the tree of 'mother's rights' this time. Perhaps she is finally acknowledging that although she smothered her son, not all women are created to be anything more than a walking uterus. That particular body part does NOT a mother make! It's just anatomy.

Looking forward to the next chapter of this wonderful story!

  Thank you for your wonderful review.  It means a lot to have specific feedback on the story.  I agree that Melanie treats Gus differently and I always thought that her talking bad about Brian in front of Gus should have been something Lindsay attempted to stop.  I feel that Lindsay has always seen Gus as a way to tie her to Brian and to have that 2.2 kids in the burbs with Brian and she in the nice suburban household.

Date: October 09, 2017 Title: Chapter 38: Chapter 38- Reality Check

Lindsay, Mel and Michael = the most INEPT 'parents' ever to exists! I am almost salivating waiting for Tweedledumb and Dumbelina to arrive at the school, only to be told that they can't have Gus to go with them. And then when Mel finds out about the agreement Brian and Lindsay legally had BFEORE Gus was even born... Jumping Jehosephat's Jockstrap, I CAN'T WAIT for that bit of news to be made public, LOL

As for Ben's talk with Captain Asinine, I honestly feel sorry for the Professor. Trying to school Michael would be like trying to teach a sponge how to independently wash the dishes....Uh, it just ain't gonna happen! The good news is that he is mentally preparing himself to realize that being married to Michael is a waste of time (I've never understood their dynamic in the series). I find it immensely troubling that after all the years Brian and Justin have been together (longer than Michael and Ben, I might add even with the short-term breakups), Michael still holds Brian to some bullcrap double standard.

Okay, so Michael doesn't like change but when Ben points out just how much Michael's life has since high school, he's actually proud of those changes. Yet he remains willfully blind and DUMB when it comes to his friends? He can't blame his continued stupidity on the fact that he didn't go to college. Some of the wisest people didn't but they just happened to grow up, face reality and actually live their lives on and with purpose, not waiting for life to happen to them (look at Emmett, just saying). So all that said, I can't see why or how ANY of them, including Ben, are still associated with Michael. I know that may sound harsh but there it is... There is nothing in common beyond a shared past and if that's the only bind that is still holding them together, it's time to let it go and move forward while letting Michael continue to live in the past.

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Happy Writing and HUGS,

Good Morning Darling! I was so happy to receive my update email, I could've cried. Instead I settled into my happy dance (think Snoopy), grabbed my coffee and blanket, and then settled in to read the last two chapters on the deck in the backyard. It's still a bit chilly up here in Rochester, NY (43 degrees) and Mother Nature NEEDS her damn Prozac. Someone should remind Father Time that she's gotten her damn Seasons mixed up again and he needs to give her the damn meds! Now for my review...

GIRLLLLLL!! Girl! Honey, I could just chew and spew nails at Michael, Mel and Lindsay! Talk about pissing me off to the point that I am pre-writing death scenes in my head... The neglect and disinterest that J.R. has been, and continues to be shown is both heartbreaking and anger-inducing. Basically she is being treated like a 'PAWN' and a 'CHECK' by the most selfish, self-absorbed idiots to ever be written about within the fandom EVER! I was really happy when Sam imparted the news to Brian about Ben's chances of getting permanent custody of Jenny. Now only if he can pass custody of Michael back to his Mama, all would be right in Ben's world.

I think Ben has the right idea that he and Michael will NOT work! I still can't figure out how men as intelligent and culturally-aware as David and Ben ended up falling for Michael. I know that in theory opposites attract but DAMN! Anyway, I digress... Ben is finally understanding that 'supposed' innocence does lose its charm eventually. That Michael won't even try to mature should tell him all he needs to know about the fate of his mismatched marriage. I say he should drop the zero, find him a hero and raise HIS daughter (she sure as hell isn't one to the other parents- just a maid and a toy). Hopefully, Debbie won't run true to form in her defense of her overgrown baby (insert lip curl here) but if she does, please write me into the story so I can kick some sight and sense into her. It's definitely long overdue if she continues to be blind to the faults of that whiny man!

I'm also hoping that when, not if (yep, I'm putting in my plug, LOL) Ben gets custody of Jenny that Mel and Lindsay are either ordered to pay Ben child support or have their parental rights revoked. Honestly, like Joan Kinney, the two of them shouldn't be allowed to raise a damn cactus, much less another human being. Those types of 'mothers' are just plain toxic to the idea of growing up with a sound mind. Too bad they can't be put in jail because their obvious neglect isn't physical; it's emotional, which in reality much worse, but also harder to prove. So at this point, I'm just looking forward to their comeuppance whatever form it takes.

Happy Writing and HUGS,

Sandy,

I kept wracking my brain, trying to figure out what the solution would be to this very intriguing storyline. You are AMAZING to have come up the is! Out of the 4, Ben is the ONLY one who actually thinks and acts like a parent. Lindsay is just...yeah, she just makes me cuss loud and long, while Melanie just makes me want to deck her. I mean, of all the reasons to conceive, one did for simply for some misguided link to her heteronormative fantasy, while the other's was an act of her over-inflated ego and jealousy! Then you took it a step forward to Lindsay the thinking she will make anyone, especially Gus, think her faux-act of altruism is for his benefit? Chicken head Chick get off the freeway of delusion! Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Jose Feliciano, Andrea Bocelli and the damn 3 BLIND Mice should be able to clearly see this act of purebred selfishness for what it is! I'm hoping all of her plans backfire in every way imaginable, including that 'dream' job falling apart! The conniving heifer is long overdue for a dose of reality about her own self-importance. SMH

As for Maggot-mouth Michael, we all know that he isn't going to go away quietly. It's going to be interesting to see the lengths he's more than likely going to go in proving what an asinine little idiot he is. If Deb is wise, she will just concentrate on establishing and solidifying her own relationship to Jenny and let her baby boy fend for himself. <insert deep sigh here> But when has Deb EVER been wise when it comes to the human noose around her neck?

Lookingforward to MORE!

So sorry it took so long to respond.  I appreciate your long and thought out response to the chapter.  I'm thrilled that you like my solution.  I wracked my brain on that one for a long time and thought it was a good one; I just wasn't sure my readers would go for it.  The girls have never been my favorites and I really do believe that I wrote them in canon.  Mel is so concerned with her career and really Lindsay only sees Gus in terms of capturing Brian.  I'm so glad Ben decided to step up.

 

As for Michael and Deb, I will have to see what my muses deal them in the next few chapters.

I love the Brian/Emmett dynamic and feel it was greatly underestimated throughout the series so I write about them, too. They were always the "King and Queen of Liberty Ave. while Justin was the Prince. To me, this story will be quite a gem and I'm looking forward to reading it. Happy Writing!

~Nichelle



Author's Response:

I love them so much! I would love to read your Brian and Emmett centric stories! You are right about them being the queen and king for sure. This story will be surprisingly angst ridden, considering Emmett is often the comic relief. But I will enjoy writing it and hope you like the rest of the story!

Summary:

When Michael falls deathly ill, Ben has never been more afraid in his life. No, scratch that. When Michael falls deathly ill and disappears out of thin air minutes before the ambulance arrives, Ben has never been more afraid in his life. All he wants to do is find his husband, alive and well, and to feel like he's not going crazy. He'd also love it if this duck would stop stalking him and breaking into his house. It's the last thing he needs right now.

LOL!!! Michael as a duck? I LOVE that idea! I feel for Ben though. I've always liked him although I was never a Michael fan. Can't wait to find out how you get him back to HAPPY! And if it gives a wonderful B & J reunion, all the better! 

BTW- I'm going through a similiar situation with the computer I got for Mothers Day. SMH I miss my baby (computer) something terrible BUT thank God I still have the other one to write and update on. I'm driving myself crazy right now trying to transfer and save what I've worked on in the last few days into Google drive so I can add it to the other manuscripts. Oh the JOY (but not really...lol)  of modern technology!

Happy Writing!

Author's Response:

I was always hot and cold on Michael. There would be times where I loved him (basically all his scenes with Ben and Hunter, when he came to the hospital to be there for Brian, riding back with him for the marathon, the wedding, as well as when he was in drag for pride.) And there were times when I pissed at him (Beginning of season 3, whenever he got his jealousy on, when he ditched Brian in season 5, and the whole JR custody saga but I basically got pissed at everyone involved there.) I LOVE Ben. Even though Brian is my favorite character and I'm head over heels for him, I would probably choose Ben to have as a significant other. He is just such a good and intelligent man, not to mention HOT. When Michael got with him, I was like, "Damn boy, good for you!" I legit cried during the wedding scene. So I feel like Ben's character helped me love Michael a lot more. The only one I was sort of cold on by the time the show was over was Lindsay. I just felt like she seemed manipulative when it came to Justin leaving for NY and moving to Canada. I liked her the first few seasons but when she cheated on Melanie, my dislike for her went downhill from there. Of course Mel cheated on her in season one but their relationship was under a lot of stress. When Lindsay cheated, she did it when they were mostly happy and that really bugged me. I think the characters I wanted to smack across the head the absolute least were Emmett and Ben.

Okay, drag on explanation of my least favorite characters over lolol.

Ben is definitely going to go through a rough time until he figures out what happened to Michael. And Michael is going to be a very persistent duck until Ben figures it out. 

As for the computer, I feel you so much on that. What especially sucks about this case was that I sent it out just a month ago to get the problem fixed. Then three weeks later, the hard drive fails (which is the same exact thing that happened before.) This computer is only a year old! Hopefully the fixed it properly this time.

I wish you luck with your writing as well! By the way, I just downloaded the trial version of Scrivener! Isn't that what you said you used? I'm slowly but I think surely figuring it out. :) Thanks for reading and reviewing this crazy story!

I keep loving this!!! So much angst, drama and humor! Wow! And Debbie's response that she should have known- talk about best kept secrets. Now that the gang's all there, things are bound to get even crazier plus the gaggle of ducks (that Appollonia is a saucy mess already) and I can't wait!! 

BTW...I LOLd at your warning at the beginning of the chapter. Weirdest warning indeed! Great job, Annie! Looking forward to the next update ofthis thoroughly enchanting tale!

Author's Response:

Glad you are loving it, Nichelle! I feel like when I write crack, I develop a strong case of PMS and go all over the place in terms of emotions. I don't think people can claim Debbie can't keep a secret anymore, that's for sure! Those ducks are definitely fiesty. Apollonia is my favorite ;) She's pretty fierce and incredibly loyal to Betty. 

When I was typing that warning I thought to myself, "Should I just leave it as is and not warn anyone?" But I decided against it. Better strange than sorry!

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Nichelle! It means a lot!

LOL!!!! WOW! What an elaborate and enchanting tale! Michael semi-sort of has his fondest wish of being supernatural. I suppose it explains his fixation of comics to the family. 

Marilyn is a pisser but I have to admire her tenacity in exposing Brian's  secret! Just please, please PLEASE don't tell me he's going to give one of the babies to Michael to raise...PLEASE please please don't do that to me...LOL I couldn't take it. I suppose that Brian and Justin are about to have one helluva fight now but a talk I'm pretty sure is long overdue. Wait...I wonder how Lindsey's going to feel about all this *evil grin and rubbing hands* LOL

Can't wait for MORE!!!

~Nichelle



Author's Response:

Michael definitely imagined having superpowers, although I don't think this is what he had in mind. ;) But hey, beggers can't be choosers.

Marilyn really is a sassy and manipulative lady but she does have Brian's best interest at heart since he is going through with the pregnancy. You'll find out what he was going to do when he and Justin get into it so that'll be amusing. He can't separate the babies, even if they would grow up closely. He'd be more likely to give both of them to Michael and Ben rather than just Ben. ;) lolol. I don't think Justin would stand for that though. We will fid out the fate of all involved soon. Thanks for reading and reviewing, Nichelle!

I LOVE this story!!! Adding the history of Dionysus was pure GENIUS. After all it's only fitting that Brian should descend from a Greek god! I seem to be loving all things Marilyn lately! She's definitely a pisser but a gem in situations like this. I can't believe that I am actually going to type this but I'm glad Michael is back to being human...and I love the fact that he won't lose his new friends in the process. Also happy that he and Ben will have the child they want!  

I will be so sorry to see this end but I will be happily rereading this one for some time to come! Great Job as always!



Author's Response:

I'm glad you are enjoying this so much, Nichelle! I went back and forth between gods but Dionysus was the most prominent male god that represented fertility. I was going to go into Joan's religious mania and Jack's alcoholism (as well as Joan's) to make Dionysus believe that they were the ideal candidates to make his incarnation but I decided not to get too incredibly complicated lol. And of course he descends from a Greek God! Justin was right all along! Marilyn is a fun character. She added such a quirky aspect to the show. Despite QAF being set in the real world, characters like her and the ghost Emmett talks to at the fairy retreat give it this very occasional supernatural aspect where you go, "Where the hell did that come from?" But I love it lol. 

Michael is back! And I couldn't let the ducks just waddle out of his life. Even though their lifespan is a lot shorter than his, they will be friends until the day they are old and frail. :) Everyone will be happy by the end of this story but I will throw a little bit more drama their way. It'll be the good and silly kind though. Thank you for reading and reviewing!

This was WONDERFUL!! I have to admit... Even though I was laughing at the womens' reaction to Brian's bounce-back body, as a mom of two I was also glaring...LOL It just couldn't be helped! Protective, Helicopter-Parent Brian made me laugh out loud and brought back a lot of nostalgic moments for me. And yes... I had a few teary moments as a result.

I loved how you captured everything to paint the picture of both births. They were touching and heartfelt. Even Mel was less abrasive than usual.

I also actually don't mind reading Michael's POV in this fic. Usually I cringe whenever I'm let into his head or something comes out of his mouth (it happens especially while I'm writing) but I couldn't stop smiling through this chapter!

Great Job as ALWAYS, Annie!!

 

~Nichelle

 



Author's Response:

Aw, thanks Nichelle! I'm glad you liked it. I would be pissed that Brian's body just bounced back to normal too and I haven't had children yet! Brian is not only giving into his instincts when it comes to his babies, but he's diving head-first into them lol. 

The births were very emotional moments for the family so I felt they need to be covered as such. And, as much as Mel and Brian butt heads, she was just as worried as the rest of them when he was pushing and will love those kids too. :)

Lol! I know some writers/readers/viewers have mixed feelings about Michael but he has a lot of good points so I try to bring those out in my story. I was very annoyed with him in season 1 while he was with Dave and how he got petty with Justin at times but none of us are perfect lol.

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing, Nichelle! Hope to get the epilogue up soon!

Now you KNOW I am far from a Michael fan but this fic was absolutely wonderful! It made me laugh, tear up and then laugh again. I'm glad everything worked out for everyone and they all adapted to the growing trials of parenthood... LOL The kids were absolutely adorable even when they were fighting (which I know would have driven me nuts). A thoroughly enjoyable read, Annie!! Great Job!

~Nichelle



Author's Response:

I'm glad you liked this crazy crack fic, Nichelle! Michael can be a fun character to write about when you let go of his behavior in the past (and turn him into a duck lolololol.) Everything did end up working out for the best and they are one big happy family. :) The kids and ducks add to the craziness but I'm sure the gang wouldn't want it any other way. 

As for those boys, they DO drive Michael crazy. He found two grey hairs. TWO. 

Thanks for reading and reviewing, Nichelle! This one was fun to write and it was fun to see the reactions as well (especially the ones on Ao3 who are taking the story seriously. I find that truly hilarious but also a little flattering.)

This was amazing, even though I am sad as hell right now. This is one that will stay with me for a long time. Jack and Father Donovan, especially that false phophet needed their a**es whipped. I'm probably a little more sensitive than others about people using the Bible to beat 'their' views into people. Both my folks are clergy and I know that their answer to Joan regarding leaving Jack would have 'God does NOT have us as ignorant folk. Get the hell out of there!' Anyway, that was so well-written that I wanted to go through the page and punch him in the throat....lol I feel like I understand Brian and Claire's dynamic a little more now and even why Joan was the way she was, even if I don't agree with or like her. Great job!    



Author's Response:

It definitely was a bleak story but I am glad you liked it. Jack and Father Donovan were definitely the two villains in this story. At least with Jack he was straight forward. Father Donovan was manipulative and had poisonous views on women as well as the Bible itself. I can't stand people who force their interpretation and beliefs on other people. I'm sure the majority of religious figures nowadays would tell Joan to leave or at the very least tell her to put her children first and, if counseling didn't work, then to take the necessary precautions.

I'm glad to have given you extra insight into the characters, whatever my interpretation is worth. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!

As someone who lives (albeit reluctantly- LOL) her life based on the routines/ rituals of those who need them most (my kids- spontaneity is NOT their friend), thank you for showing this side of Brian and how it in turn affects the one who's around him the most.

This was HOT from the very beginning! And I ask you, who could possibly have a problem with SMUT? The first scene was sexy and smoldering while the second scene was sweet and satisfying. All the rest in between was completely gratifying and I found myself having "Emmett" moments...LOL

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it and that I made you smile, Nichelle! Yeah... I just had to have Justin pop Mikey a good one; there were several times in the series that I thought both Justin and Brian should have popped Mikey. At least we got to see Brian do it! As for an epilogue, I do have a small idea which hopefully won't take me months to write. I was surprised that this one turned out as well as it did since I wrote it in just a couple of hours. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! Deb

What goes around has now come back around for Justin- poor thing- but if I were Brian, I would be using some of the same tactics to win Justin back that were employed when the shoe was on the other foot. It is my hope that Brian doesn't revert to his old way of thinking entirely. The Brian Kinney we all know and LOVE is a fighter even if he does it subtly at times. That fighting, never-say-die spirit is what made Justin the perfect partner for Brian and vice versa. My heart aches for them both which is a true testament of GREAT WORK! Looking forward to MORE!

I've been keeping up although I haven't been able to leave a review on every single one of these delightful sequences! I really love with you are doing with these! The escape to Hawaii was PERFECT and really should have been done regardless of it Justin went to NY or not!!! Who said that a long-distance romance/marriage couldn't have worked for a time? So thank you for righting that egregious wrong done in the series!

Lindsay and Michael...UGH! They infuriate me (I'll be paying them back mercilessly in my own fics, LOL)! Although Lindsay was bad enough- and I hope that Melanie will put a leash and muzzle on her- Michael is just a straight up Assssssssshole <in my best Ted voice>. And now we have the Avenging Mother with only minimal facts once again trying to make Brian responsible for her petulant child's actions! I love the way Brian handled her although I really did wish that he would have given her the WHOLE story for once. She really needs to 86 the rose colored glasses in reference to Michael and start letting him reap the benefits (or non-benefits in this case) of what his big mouth sows. He's the walking talking cliche of writing checks that his (non-existent) ass can't cash!

Looking forward to more!!

And that whiny, sniveling, good-for-Pain- in- the -AssItis Michael.... Always an ulterior motive with him and Lindsay. I hope Ben leaves him for good; he deserves BETTER! And I hope Michael has to live with his own poor choices and for ONCE solve his own damn problems!

Author's Response: The nerve is right, they're both acting childish. Michael's pining is getting old, and Brian not the only one who's had enough.

Well...welll...well I knew this chick would turn up sooner than later with her mouth open and her hand out!!!! OH  PLEASE let Mel and Lindz be stupid enough to play around with Brian!! I'm so glad he is pointing out the differences made between him and Michael and the unfairness that he's basically being expected to support Michael's kid too. There's no way that Brian'm money will only go to Gus' care. The only way that could happen is if Brian pays the daycare directly, buys Gus' food and clothes himself and pay 1/4 of the mortage directly to the mortgage company and call it  'Gus room and board.' Since Brian isn't like that, Lindsay has been taking advantage big time. Well it looks like Dumb(L) and Dumber (M) are really on their own now and the access to the bottomless money pit has FINALLY been revoked. Hopefully (no matter how far-fetched that hope is) Melanie will wise up too about Brian and finally do what's right! I also hope that eventually she will take a page from Ben's book and either get a grip on her marriage or let it go! Lindsay and Michael (ESPECIALLY Michael) are certifiably insane and need to be committed somewhere to help them face reality. The Eternal Peter Pan is gone and so is Captain Astro which means it's te for Wendy and Galaxy Lad to disappear too!!

The good thing about the situation with the network yesterday is that I woke up to THIS!!!!! YES!! I LOVED this! This chapter should carry the subtitle "All's Fair in War and Court!" I am so happy that Ted is as neurotic as he is about financial records; it really saved Brian's ass. I love how Diane literally took the wind out of their sails by bringing every possible counter-argument they could have. The absolute NERVE of Lindsay!! And then them using the money to pay for Michael's kid all the while blocking access to Gus. Now THAT is someone who should be taken to court to have his parental rights revoked! Irresponsible twerp! Great Job, Kathleen!! I can't wait for more!

Date: May 04, 2016 Title: Chapter 19: Chapter 19 ~ Soothing Kisses...

Loved, loved, LOVED this chapter!!! There was some much needed TRUTH delivered all the way around!


Although I love Debbie, the fact that she always held Brian to a higher-almost impossible- stqndard and yet put Michael on a pedestal, ALWAYS grated on my last working nerve. In Jen giving Deb a hard dose of reality and also outlining the differences between Justin and Michael due to Mothering Vs. Smothering was done brilliantly! 


Then there was Lindsay and Michael who BOTH suffer from the same syndrome called Justin Jealousy-itis, needed to be told that the loft is NOT theirs to come & go, enter & exit and most of all LIVE as they please. Lindsay's barging in and basically scolding Brian and Justin for having relations in THEIR living room was so completely inappropriate. If I was Brian and Justin (and if Gus wasn't with her), I would have REALLY given her nosey, over-bearing, manipulative ass a show.


And as for that tiny-brained twerp....How is it that he thought he could 'think' for two people when it's obvious he can't even think for himself? And then to basically invite himself to live into a home where he isn't nor has ever been wanted, is completely shameful. Personally I would like to see him living in a shelter to teach him a lesson of responsibility AND humilty. He's been 'entitled' for far too long! It's time he does three things: grow the hell up, get a real damn job since  he always treated Red Cape like a damn hobby, and GET HIS OWN DAMN LIFE!! Lol, I know I've ranted a bit. But I also know you love it when I do, LOL!  


Happy Writing and HUGS!!


~Nichelle



Author's Response: Mothering vs. Smothering! I love it, that's a perfect description! The Jealous of Justin Syndrome, Brilliant! This is the core of their reality, if they could just get a life, and leave our newlyweds alone... More new locks on the loft door was just suggested, and I'm think fingerprint ID verification might be necessary... I have to admit my beta strongly suggested I can a few words, (which I did) considering that Gus was present. It's good someone is watching over my shoulder, but I'm sure they'll be a next time when Gus is around... Evil Kathleen, I mean Evil Kinney Strikes again... You know the homeless shelter was also suggested a few comments back, I'm liking this idea. I wonder how down and out I take Mikey without actually killing him... I know I've ranted a bit. But I also know you love it when I do! ~ Yes! Yes, rant away, it's good to know I'm not the only one who needs to scream sometimes!

P.S. Why do I have the feeling that Lindsay is the one who put the idea to break up in Brian's head? I can just hear it now, 'Brian, Justin can not concentrate on his art if he's always worried about getting back to you. He has the ability to be a great artist and you're holding him back for your own selfish needs and desires. Sometimes growing as an artist means that one has to suffer for the cause, Brian. Besides, you're Brian Kinney...you'll never be able to give what he really wants. So it's time to let go." I wouldn't put anything passed her or Michael to achieve their own ends!

Just wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying this fic!! Besides, ANY fic where Michael gets his comeuppance deserves a prize, LOL! But seriously, I'm loving all the twists and turns of this. And its unique perspective on what could have happened had Justin hit his head again. Whereas I am sad for him, I am also hopeful that he and Brian can make a new start.

Michael and Mel....BOTH of them deserve for their partners to have left. I'm always pissed that Ben ignored Michael's obsessions and basically excused his bad behaviors towards Brian, Justin and also Hunter in the beginning. He never learned that it was okay to tell Michael that he was acting like as asshole and making a complete ass of himself. Michael is NOT a friend; he is a parasite. And it has been proven again and again throughout this fic. I'm glad that Cynthia knocked Melanie on her ass. From the sounds of it, someone needed to a LONG time ago! Is it sad that I hope that Lindsay stays gone? But I know that it won't happen. That bitch is like Michael which is why I consider her the bad penny that always shows up when one least expects it.

Debbie....no words for her at the moment. Well that's not exactly true but in the theory of respecting even my fictional elders, I will not say them in reference to her. Now Craig...that's another matter. Somehow I don't think the pills that he's been giving Jennifer are a means of relieving her anxiety but as a means control her. I don;t trust him further than I can throw Debbie.

Just caught up and may I say again that you have totally engrossed me with this storyline! Justin is getting some important parts of his memory back and I really hope that he gets them all by the time the other portion of this drama begins. He needs to be hale, whole and hearty if or no other reason than to combat whatever bullshit that Mel and Michael will come up with next. And now we have to add Craig to this mix off bullshittery! Whatever he is doing or has done to Jennifer to brainwash her needs to be put behind the locked doors of the government and never to see the light of day again. I worry what the two of them will try next to separate B&J from Dani (or more likely all three of them rom each other). I doubt very much that they will give up with their talk of being a 'perfect family.' Hopefully Molly, Brian and Emmett (Ted too if he's really for B&J) will be able to run some serious interference on Justin's behalf while he's still so vulnerable.

Looking forward to the coming chapters!

He remembers their first year together and the prom, then the memories of waking in the hospital in New York until the present.  So he's still lacking.  While I'm sure he won't put up with anything from either Mel or Mikey, Craig is a different story.  You have reason to worry, as you'll find out later.  Thanks for commenting.

Hey Bill, 

I know I'm pretty late in reviewing this chapter (even though I read it before now), but something has really been bothering me about the reviews regarding Ben's money. First, it is NOT Ben's responsibilty to financially support JR. Let's just be clear and remember that it falls to Michael as the other person responsible for JR's DNA.

Secondly, regarding Ben's salary as a tenured professor: I'm not sure, but isn't Ben still positive in this story? The reason I ask, is that there are several written recently where he isn't, but that's beside the point. For the sake of argument, let's just say that he is. I really don't understand folks thinking that even as a tenured professor that Ben's health insurance would automatically cover his HIV medication. That is a MISCONCEPTION if I've ever heard one. In fact, it very well could possibly be looked at as a PREEXISTING CONDITION, especially since a tenured professor at a college or university does NOT begin their respective careers that way. They are known as Adjunct Professors until they get tenure, and therefore only have at most basic insurance based on how many hours they work (usually about 25 to 30 hours which is still considered part time). So all of this talk about what Ben should contribute is inaccurate, especially since he would STILL need to pay for his HIV medication.

So let's go on and say that he is making $75K per year. The cost of his meds PER MONTH would by at least $3000, which in actuality is the cost of one chemo pill. I know this because I have a family member, who has been living with the virus going on 30 years now and the new medication she is on is about $3500 for a 30-day supply. As for the chemo pill, my father passed from two types of cancers in 2012, and his insurance only covered PART of that and only because he was a Veteran. So, back to Ben, if you were to take $3000 and multiply it by 12, it equals $36,000 and that doesn't even include taxes and fees. All that said, I'm very curious to know just how Ben is supposed to be the one to pay for EVERYTHING, including but not limited to, the house and all that comes with owning or renting one, insurance for himself and Hunter, other basic needs including his meds AND HUNTERS, plus support his mooching-ass husband? If anything, Michael should get the hell off his ass and realize that having a child is not an IN NAME ONLY situation. That would be the adult thing to do! 

So in conclusion, if I were Ben, I would certainly have required Michael to pay back every damn copper penny to my retirement fund as well as pay full child support whether Mel wants it or not, because that's what a noncustodial parent is supposed to do. And if Michael couldn't do that, then I would leave but sue him privately for my funds back. I really don't give a damn that they are 'married', that fund was what Ben WORKED HARD for, and unless Michael was contributing to it, which he was NOT, then the Joker-looking idiot had no right to access it. 

Just my take on things, but you know how us writers are.

HUGS and LOVE, Boo!

~Nichelle



Author's Response:

Hi Nichelle, So nice to hear from you!!!!  I agree about Ben paying for JR's upkeep.  Michael has kept him at arm's length where JR is concerned.  Justin is Papa, Ben is Uncle Ben.  In one of the earlier chapters I mention Ben being glad he was able to get his meds covered by his insurance.  You are correct there is no must be covered for preexisting conditions  Michael getting a fulltime job was to allow him to pay back Ben and to get his own health insurance.  Ben gave him an ultimatum to get a job.  Poor Ben just had the misfortune to fall in love with a man-child and I think in some ways that is what appealed to Ben.  Personally I never understood Mel choosing Michael to father her child.  Hope all is good in your world.  Hugs back to you!!  Bill

Hey Bill. I'm STILL reading this story, although I don't comment as much as I should. Usually, it's in passing on the way to someplace, or just as I'm sitting down to write myself. Yours is the only story I actually take a break for immediately when it's updated... the rest of this thought goes without saying since you know me.

Anyway, I'm glad to see that Lindsay- in a sense- talked some sense into Melanie. Although if I'm honest, I didn't expect any less from Lindsay. Her selfishness- no matter that it's medical in this iknstance- knows no bounds, and anything which takes the focus off of herself is just another nuisance. So yeah... No major suprises there. It's going to be interesting to see how Mel handles everything, especially in terms of her work schedule while Ms. Muffett keeps sitting on her Tuffett, especially in regards to picking up JR from some sort of daycare.

I think she'll find that she and Lindsay have very different meanings regarding the word partnership. But solely back to Melanie for a bit. Her wanting to battle for custody of Gus was NEVER about the little boy, but just her need to be right and to have something continually hanging over Brian's head like an anvil. Since it couldn't be his money, or need for her legal services she chose the ONE thing- the one PERSON- that would get him to take notice of her supposed importance...Gus!

I can't tell you what I really think of her selfish actions because this is a public site. But trust me when I tell you that the amount of profanity I would use to describe her would even make Jesus take a second look even with knowing me...LOL So suffice it to say that I really hate women like her, who are all about self absorption and don't hesitate to use a child to see to their own ends. But, that said I too, am wondering just how Melanie is going to make ends meet now.

Enter Mealymouth Michael Charles Novotny-Bruckner! He has absolutely NO EXCUSE not to support his little clone now. After all due to Deb's tears, he's working at Kinnetik... well for the interim, I hope <raised eyebrow, and some serious begging to commence in 5...4...3...2...>. It pissed me off to the highest point of pissitivity when he said that 'Brian always gave Mel and Linds cash so why shouldn't he help us out.  I am his best friend and he can certainly afford it.' How dare that little mot.. see what almost happened there?

As you already know, my feelings for Michael are NOT tamed in the slightest. But this right here...!!! And what pisses me off even more is that no matter who tries to tell him that he should be supporting his own daughter- the same child he nearly milked his testicle to death to eke out- he still comes up with saying that 'Brian can afford it.' Honestly, that's who should have been Melanie's target all along, and then perhaps she wouldn't be worried now about how she's going to make that claptrap of a household work without Gus in it. 

As for Joan... <insert deep sigh here> She is trying, and since I'm a firm believer that forgiveness is for YOU and not the other person, I really hope that Brian can and will forgive Joan. However, I've also learned that you can truly forgive someone and STILL not want anything to do with them. So if that's the tract Brian must take for his own sanity, then he's entitled to it without fear of rejection and reprisal and Joan will just have to accept that. But I was glad that she and Jennifer had an honest talk. I do believe that it gave Joan a lot to think about in terms of her views about Brian and Justin's relationship. At least she's FINALLY recognizing that what they have is strong and good for Brian; that should at least count for something.

I'm certainly looking forward to more of this story, especially being surprised by Granny's visit. If she's anything like my grandmother was, Brian is in for a real treat in terms of her honesty and a lot of laughs in terms of her bluntness. Perhaps he will have met his match in sarcasm? LOL, time will tell!

HAPPY WRITING and HUGS,

So nice to hear from you!!!  Hope you are well and dealing with Covid, sure is a crazy time.  Lindsay seems to know just had f-up she is and know Gus would be better taken care of by Brian and Justin.  I have always felt Lindsay is a really selfish person who just looks for what she can get from people.

You gotta love Mikey, he is one thing we can really count on in this world.  He never chnages, never learns, never grows.  Even Debbie is getting tired of his behavior.  I don't think Mel has ever asked Mikey for support money, she didn't need his little contribution when Brian was supporting their whole household.  To me Joan is like Craig - they wnat forgiveness on their terms.  She told Jennifer she didn't approve of Brian's life style CHOICES.  I think if Joan really accepts Brian and Justin she could be forgiven.  But a half apology is only good for half forgiveness.  Time will tell where the Joan saga goes from here.

I think of Granny as being Jennifer on steroids so she should be an interesting house guest.  Thanks for taking time to review!!!!  Hugs back to you!!  Bill

Hey Bill,

Loved everything about this chapter. I have sons so I completely laughed loud and long at Brian having what is truly considered to be a rite of passage when changing boys' diapers.

As for Dumbette and Dumber's continued attempts to assert their collective authority: Lindsay (Dumbette) really thought that her passive-aggressively given suggestion, in the form of Gus no less, would just be accepted? Really, Chicken-head? Really?! Apparently, she is certainly coming back to her 'old' self. I'm so happy that it was Justin, who put her in her proper place.

And just when Lindsay's shenanigans didn't work, in comes Big Bad Mel. Bitch please!! Jennifer handed her ass in such a classic fashion- all poise and precision- and in front of countless witnesses, too. The fact that everyone now knows that Melanie is an attorney, and is trying to flout a court order should definitely be remarked upon, and loudly enough for her boss to hear. But that's just my wishful thinking, I suppose. I suppose now that Mel will try to find a way to have the order reversed? Could be fun since she doesn't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. It's really all she can handle to financially take care of Jenny and her other GROWN child, that Gambling Godiva herself, Miss Lottery-tickets Lindsay. She should probably quit while she's ahead... but somehow, I don't see that happening. I'm waiting to find out  the next move of Dumb the First (Michael), who will most assuredly NOT be happy that the twins have arrived.

Looking forward to MORE!

HAPPY Writing and HUGS,

Hi Nichelle, always nice to hear from you!!!  Those boys, whe their penis is free they want to share.  I was the youngest of three boys so my mother told me about that protective diaper and I avoided that rite of passage - and honestly didn't miss it.  My worst diaper experience was the result of soy based formula.  WOW, I said at the time if this country were ever in danger of being invaded we would just need to line up a row of soy formula diapers on the shore and the invaders would have to retreat.  Mel really should know better she has never emerged as victor from an encounter with Jennifer.  I do have to get back to Michael one of these days, I'll have to think about something diabolical.  Thanks for the nice comments!!  Hugs back to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Bill
