Hello everyone.  I am the 71 year old Mother of one girl and Grandmother of two girls.  The eldest is 24 and the youngest is 23.  All 3 of us moved to Pennsylvania threeyears ago for a fresh start after my living in Texas for the past 48 years.  My youngest and I just moved into a place of our own once my Daughter remarried after being single for 21 years, and I couldn't be happier.  I am wildly in love with Queer as Folk and Brian/Justin in particular.  I'm a native Californian, although I've lived all over the Country during the first 19 years of my life.  I've only been writing since August, 2007, and it has made my retirement pure Heaven.  I love it more than anything.  I hope my readers will enjoy my work.  I truly appreciate all feedback and always respond to everything as quickly as possible.  Thank you for checking me out.  Hugs, Grammy


P.S.  I'm a die-hard hopeless romantic, so if that is the kind of story you are looking for...with a large sprinkling of spice to go with the sweet (and don't be fooled by the grey hair) then you've come to the right place for your stories. 


P.P.S.  After 14 years of singular devotion to only one couple...Brian and Justin...my heart was finally captured by another (but I will never give up my first love, you can be assured of that).  I am now writing fanfic for Agron and Nasir (Nagron) from the Starz TV series, 'Spartacus'.  Believe me, their love is just as powerful as Britin's so I hope you'll give their stories a chance even if you don't know the show.

Happy Hallothanksmas Day! by mandagrammy New! Rated: GENERAL [Reviews - 4]
Summary:

I apologize for the delay in getting my holiday story to you, but I hope you will still enjoy it.  It seems that Brian has a problem being around for Justin whenever a big holiday comes up.  They've been living together for several years, and this year is the straw that broke the camel's back.  Brian again misses every holiday for the last few months of the year, so Justin decides it is time to do something about it.  

Many thanks to my wonderful beta, Judy, for her skills, and my dear Granddaughter, Marika, for the lovely banner.

Aftercare by mandagrammy New! Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

This story picks up right where 'Aftermath' ends.  This is the third and final installment in the 'After' series of stories about the aftereffects of Justin's bashing by the despicable Chris Hobbs.  This story centers primarily on those closest to Justin and how they deal with what has happened.  It's my interpretation of what could have been going on in between scenes during the first episode of Season 2.  I hope you will enjoy it.  

My eternal gratitude to the remarkable Judy for her beta skills, and my beautiful granddaughter, Marika, for the evocative banner.  I love you both dearly.

Cracked by mandagrammy Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 71]
Summary:

jpg

Here I go with my first multi-chaptered story in over 3 years.  I really hope you will enjoy it.  Some time ago someone suggested the idea of turning around the series plot involving the Prom bashing 180 degrees, and then seeing what might have happened if it was Brian who was Hobbs' victim rather than Justin.  I found the idea intriguing, so I'm going with it.  Of course there will be drama and angst, but just remember how my stories end up and take heart.  So without delay, here is the beginning of a whole new light on the love story of Brian and Justin.  

But first, of course, I must give my undying appreciation to my dear Judy for her beta help.  And a special appreciation to the very talented and thoughtful Kim (Predec2) for the evocative banner for my story.  I love you girls dearly.

Aftermath by mandagrammy Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 4]
Summary:

In Aftershock, we see how Justin's bashing at the end of Season One affected Brian. It ended without revealing how the bashing affected everyone else who loved and cared about Justin. The series skipped from that iconic scene of Brian sitting in the hospital right after Justin was admitted, to a month later at the beginning of Season Two, so we have to use our imagination about what went on at the hospital after Michael joined Brian. I hope you will find my perspective interesting.

Many thanks to my beta, Judy, for her help and my darling Granddaughter, Marika, for her evocative banner. And also thanks to those who asked me 'what about the others' when they read 'Aftershock'. Their questions led to this sequel.

Aftershock by mandagrammy Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

A QAF fanfic reader made a request for stories that involved the immediate aftermath of that tragic bashing of our beloved Justin and how Brian responded to it.  I believe it inspired a lot of our writers, including myself.  I do hope you will find this story interesting, although I can't say it will be a lot of fun, considering the subject matter.  Please keep in mind how things did turn out for the couple later on as you reach the end of this story, and don't be too sad. 

I want to thank Gloria Hernon for her brilliant suggestion.  I also wish to thank my beloved Judy for her beta skills and my beloved granddaughter, Marika, for her amazing banner.

Video Heat by mandagrammy Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 9]
Summary:

I was watching the ladies of 'The View' last week, and they were discussing another trend besides sexting called video sexing.  Like the naughty old lady I am, the first thought that popped into my head was that I could clearly see Brian and Justin indulging, especially after being separated at the end of the series.  Of course I had to put my own spin on it too.  So I now offer you my vision of what might happen a couple of months after Justin left for NYC.  

This is a special gift for our dear friend, Kim.  It's my way of thanking her for all her help in the past and her continuing support despite my long absence from writing.

I also want to thank my fantastic beta, Judy, for once again being there for me.  A special thank you for my beloved Granddaughter,, Marika, for creating another banner for me despite her own busy  life.    Enjoy!

Damn!  I can't believe that it is time to celebrate my Fifth Anniversary of the day I posted my very first fanfic story.  It is really true that time flies when you are having fun.  LOL!  Well folks, as is my custom I have written a new story to share with my beloved readers who have made these five years so special to me.  I hope you will enjoy it.

For this story, I decided to answer (in my version) the question that was never fully explored on the series.  We all presume that the bombing of Babylon was caused by people who hated the protesters of the Prop 14 bill.  The show never actually followed through with an investigation into the bombing.  I have come up with my own theory, and the fact that Brian is re-opening the club will bring the truth out.  Oh, and while we're at it, the re-opening will also be slightly different than what the show presented.  In my version, a certain special someone also attends much to Brian's delight.  One guess as to who I'm talking about.

An End To It by mandagrammy Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 64]
Summary:

 

Finally did it...my very first crossover story, and my QAF muse has come back home too.  So I hope you'll enjoy this new story.  For those who love Spartacus (and especially Agron and Nasir) you'll know them well.  This story is set during the revolt of the slaves of Rome between 73 B.C. and 71 B.C.  I have done my best to be as accurate to true history as I can, but the story is based on the way history is told by the Starz series, 'Spartacus'.  I've changed Brian and Justin's names slightly to fit what was used in that time period.  All the names I've used for characters are accurate according to my research.  At the beginning none of the four men have met and spent any time together.  I promise you, that will change quite quickly.  The Agron/Nasir part of the story is more canon, while the Brian (Brion)/Justin (Justinus) part of the story is certainly AU. I hope you will enjoy the blending of these two magnificent couples.

A special note of thanks to my darling Granddaughter, Amy for the banner.  A very special thanks to my beta, Judy...plus I wish to dedicate this story to her.  Her support and friendship has been invaluable in getting me back on track in writing stories.

Summary:

I finally have a story for the 'Great Outdoors Challenge' and I hope you will find it 'hot' enough to make your Summer sizzle.

The setting is 7 months after Justin moves to New York City.  He and Brian still think of themselves as a couple, but Brian's businesses and Justin's insistence on paying his own way (even for a visit back home) has kept the couple apart.  Justin spends all his time painting.  Daphne comes for a visit, and seeing her friend's condition, insists on taking him out for some fun.  A visit to a local gay bar provides a huge surprise, as Justin unexectedly wins a vacation for two at a beautiful cove resort in British Columbia.  Will he get Brian to be his companion, and what other surprise awaits Justin during his Summer holiday?

Huge gratitude to my wonderful beta, Judy, and my Granddaughter, Amy, for my banner.

Summary:

Hello, everyone.  Today is special to me.  It marks the 7th Anniversary of the very first time I wrote and posted a fanfic story.  As has become my custom, I wanted to give you something special to thank all my wonderful readers for their loyalty and support of my work over the years.  

 

A little over a year ago, my muse abandoned me for a while and my work trickled down to almost nothing.  Then another couple entered my life and my muse returned full force.  To show my appreciation to both couples that inspire my work, I've chosen to write a little something about all 4 of my favorite men.

 

Rather than writing a story, per se, I've chosen a different format.  I decided to interview Brian, Justin, Agron, and Nasir.  I had only one important question to ask of each of them.  Why do you love the man in your life?  Thankfully all 4 men came to me and took time to answer the question in depth.  I hope you will enjoy their interviews.

 

Huge thanks and gratitude go out to Judy, my wonderful beta, and Amy, my beautiful banner maker.

Summary:

 

I love to let my imagination run wild for all those times we could only guess what was happening to Agron and Nasir when they weren't in a scene. So I've taken two episodes...#7 (Sacrementum) & #8 (Balance)...from Season 2: 'Vengeance' and filled in some blanks, at least the way I saw them in my mind. I hope you will enjoy them.

Many thanks to my beta, Judy for her wonderful help.

Agron has developed a firm friendship with Nasir, but it is only when he is parted from the young Syrian (and there is the very strong chance the young man could be killed) that he begins to realize there is more to their relationship than that. How his newfound feelings affect them both, and how it changes things between them, is revealed in thought and deed.

Summary:

 

 

When they released the video with the deleted scene between Nasir and Castus that occurred  when he tried to comfort Nasir over the loss of Agron, I was inspired to write this story. It is a 3 part gap filler of that period of time right after Agron leaves, up until he returns. I hope you will enjoy my interpretation of Agron and Nasir's feelings during this period.

This is posted without beta temporarily while my beta is completing work on a professional novel. I promise to make necessary corrections as soon as I hear from her. Thank you for your patience with any mistakes I may make.

Just got the beta'd copy back so the corrections are made. Many thanks to my dear friend, Judy, for all her help.

Summary:

 

 

Agron and Nasir have had a loving, trusting relationship from the moment they got together, but the honeymoon period is quickly coming to an end with the arrival of a good looking pirate named Castus.  Castus has taken a shine to Nasir and isn't afraid to show it, much to the irritation of a certain German rebel.  When Nasir sees how upset Agron is with Castus's presence, he promises to avoid the pirate in future.  When Agron sees them together, he gets the wrong idea and, like an out-of-control battle, all hell breaks loose.  What happens when Agron uses the wrong word on Nasir to show his displeasure could tear them apart.  What happens next is up to Agron now.  

Many thanks again to my dear friend, Judy for her beta help.  I also want to dedicate this story to my fellow MW reader, Boriqua522.  I was given the idea for this story by them and I am deeply grateful.

If you are a Spartacus fan you have no doubt noticed the unique necklace that Nasir wears throughout the final Season of the Series. A little research into ancient Roman history was the inspiration for my version of how and why Nasir ended up with this interesting item around his neck. Agron once again reveals his softer side whenever it involves Nasir.  And for those who are not fans (yet) here's a glimpse of Nasir's necklace.  And once again I owe a debt of gratitude to my wonderful beta, Judy.

Well now, I don't know about the rest of you wonderful QAFers, but the ending for Brian and Justin wasn't the only one that irritated me.  I was extremely fond of Emmett, as I know so many of you folks were too.  I wanted a happy ending for him, but we all know how it ended with his footballer, Drew Boyd.  I got to thinking that it was time for them to have their closure too, and who better than master schemer, Brian to get the ball rolling (who can forget the way Brian set up Michael at his birthday...or even better, the way he set up Ethan and Justin at the diner when they were still secret lovers).

 
So here you go...Brian Kinney becomes matchmaker for Emmett and Drew.  Will his plans succeed or fail miserably?  Let's find out.  A huge thank you to my sounding board, Lori...my beta, Judy...and my dear Amy for the banner.  Enjoy!

I was watching 'So You Think You Can Dance' when a performance was given to the song 'Somebody That I Used to Know'.  Bingo!!!  Another inspiration for a Brian/Justin love story.  Amazing how it keeps happening.  LOL!  Anyway, this is not a songfic.  Only the title inspired me.  This is a What If? story.  It begins with...What if Brian got the job in New York City that was offered just before the end of Season One and left Pittsburgh behind.  The story moves forward to five years later.  Justin has moved to NYC after graduating from PIFA and after a year in the City, he runs into Brian at a fine restaurant.  What happens then?

I want to thank my dear Granddaughter, Marika, for the evocative banner and my dear friend, Judy for her wonderful beta skills.  I hope you will enjoy their reunion as much as I enjoyed envisioning it.  Warmest hugs, Grammy
