Hello everyone.  I am the 74 year old Mother of one girl and Grandmother of two girls.  The eldest is 26 and the youngest is 25.  All 3 of us moved to Pennsylvania six years ago for a fresh start after my living in Texas for the past 48 years.  My youngest and I eventually 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 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.

Stories by mandagrammy
Summary:

Hello, dear readers.  I come to you with the only story, which I once started years ago, that I never completed due to both health and family issues.  I pulled the story once I realized it was taking too long to get back to it.  I am now finally ready to get back to work on it, and I hope you will join me as I do.

This is a complete departure from anything I've written before.  The title says it all.  I have literally turned QAF on its head, by creating a world in which Brian Kinney and Justin Taylor (along with all the other main character from the show) are now the actors who will be portraying fictional characters in a new television series called Queer Folks and Family (soon to be known as QFF by avid fans of the show).  How will taking on the roles in the series impact the lives of actors, Brian and Justin?  That is the question.

P..S.  Many thanks, as always, to my wonderful beta, Judy, for her great skills.  I also want to thank the creator of my banner, although it was so long ago I truly don't remember which of my talented banner makers created this one.  I do apologize for my terrible memory.

P.P,S.  For the next few months, I can promise you a new chapter every week, and I look forward to any comments you may have.  Thank you.

This story is the result of my entry in the July fanfic contest on TQL.  Brian wants to give his son a special gift for his fifth birthday so he chooses an up-and-coming artist named Justin Taylor to paint a portrait of Gus.  He gets more than he bargained for when he meets the budding young artist.  Many thanks to Pat for her beta skills and the fabulous Eka for the perfect banner.  I love you girls so much.

Summary:

This is the final story in the Double Trouble Trilogy.  It picks up about 6 years after 'Graduation' ends.  JR is happily married to husband Noah and pregnant with her first child... the first Grandchild for Brian and Justin.  Gus is also happily married to husband Jason.  This couple wants nothing more than to also make Brian and Justin Grandparents, but it has not been as easy for them.  Then, out of nowhere, someone from Gus and JR's Canadian past comes back into their lives and may be the solution that Gus and Jason have been praying for.  

I wish to thank once again the lovely Nikki for her wonderful banner, and my dear friend, Judy, for her terrific beta skills.

Summary:

Happy Valentine's to one and all of our beloved QAF family.  I was listening to some of my favorite old rock & roll songs a few weeks ago and when the Sam Cooke song, 'Cupid' came on, this story was suddenly born in my head.  I hope you will enjoy this little trip into a fantasy world as Cupid tells the assembled gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus all about his greatest challenge while doing his job.  I owe a great deal of gratitude to my darling granddaughter, Marika, for the lovely banner and my talented beta, Judy, for her terrific skills.  Hope you all have nothing but love on Valentine's Day and all year round.

Summary:

Happy Holidays everyone.  I have an early Christmas gift for you, and I hope you will enjoy it.  This story is set a little over ten years after Justin headed off for New York City, leaving Pittsburgh behind.  It seems that his plan didn't last long, and a decade later he is happily married to Brian.  The only fly in the ointment of their happiness is how much Brian misses seeing his son, Gus far more often than the occasional visits back and forth to Canada.  Justin's dearest wish is to arrange for Brian to receive the best Christmas gift ever, and he is willing to do whatever he can to make that happen.

Saving Fur Babies by mandagrammy Rated: GENERAL [Reviews - 14]
Summary:

Hello, my dear readers.  Today, I have something brand new for you.  Before anything else, I want to dedicate this story to one of my dearest readers and friend, Vicki, for entrusting me with her plot bunny for this story.  I couldn't have done it without her support.  Also a big thank you to Judy, my fantastic beta, and Marika, my talented banner maker.

Now, as to this story, this is for all you animal lovers out there.  What happens when Brian becomes the 'somewhat' reluctant (yet willing) rescuer of a pair of brutally abandoned dogs?  How will this one act of kindness change his life and that of his beloved husband and son?

P.S.  I've chosen Irish Setters in this case as a tribute to Vicki, a proud Irish lassie.

Well hello, folks.  I know that this story is super late, but a lot of things, many of which were beyond my control, caused the delay.  I hope you will still find it worth waiting for.  This is my entry into the 5 (6) word challenge we were given months ago.  In this story, Justin is still living in NYC, but not so happily.  Not only does he miss Brian, but he is not thrilled with his living situation.  Then one careless accident changes everything.  I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my beta, Judy, for her skills.  Another huge thanks to my granddaughter, Marika, for the evocative banner.  Hugs, Grammy

Cracked by mandagrammy Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 90]
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.

The Letters by mandagrammy Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 21]
Summary:

Although Brian has had little to nothing to do with his mother or sister in well over a decade, his life is changed forever following a surprising call about them from an unexpected source.  Thankfully, he will have his husband, Justin, to help him deal with what is coming.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my wonderful beta, Judy, for her skills in tidying up my work, and my beloved granddaughter, Marika, for her evocative banner.  I love you girls.

I would also like to add one special note for this story.  I have been under the mistaken impression for years that Brian was Joan's firstborn.  Thankfully, many of you have straightened me out on this point.  However, it is integral to this story that Brian is the firstborn, so please indulge my twist on this one canon issue.  Thank you.

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 Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 4]
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.

Aftermath by mandagrammy Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 5]
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 - 4]
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 - 84]
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.

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:

 

 

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.

Summary:

" alt="" />


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!

Happy Halloween, everyone! It is time for me to offer your annual 'treat' for the holiday. This year I decided to give you another adult 'fairy' tale. This is my version of the 'Little Red Riding Hood' story. I hope you will enjoy it. I promise there are no mean 'tricks' waiting for you.

I want to thank Lori, for her invaluable help. She was a great sounding board. Huge thank you's also go out to the wonderful Judy for her terrific beta skills and my darling, Amy for the banner. I am a lucky lady.

Summary:

 

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

Where Do I Begin? by mandagrammy Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 21]
Summary:

I have a new story for your weekend reading.  My beta, Judy is still on a whirlwind trip after enjoying her time at the glorious QAF Rise 'n Shine Convention so this is unbeta'd temporarily.  I'll post corrections asap when she is able to get some extra time in her super busy 28 hours a day.  LOL!

This is my newest version of what comes after Brian and Justin part at the loft, and Justin heads off to the airport for his flight to New York City.  As we all know it was Winter time.  Who could forget the unforgettable scene as snow fell outside their window when they made such beautiful love together?  Well, what if the snow fell so heavily that night that all flights were delayed?  And what if Justin, who we all know loves to make conversation with interesting people, finds himself sharing the waiting hours with a kindly old lady (yes, I'm putting myself into this story) who also enjoys a good conversation?  Where does it all lead?  Read on to find out.  Many thanks to my Granddaughter, Marika, for taking time out of her 4th of July celebrations with friends to provide the lovely banner.

Summary:

 

 

Surprise! I know I've been away from writing for quite a while, but I have a new short story that I hope you will find somewhat worth the wait. The setting is post Season 5 by several months. Brian has developed a unique problem that he has only faced one other time. He turns to the psychologist who helped him with Justin's problem after the bashing in hopes of finding a solution. Will the good Doctor figure out the puzzle that is confronting Brian and help him solve it? I dedicate this to Lori, who had been a blessing in my present chaotic life and given me much needed incentive to get back to my writing. As always, I owe a great debt of gratitude to Judy, my beta, and Marika, my banner maker. Thanks to both of them.

This is a holiday story that was written for a True Queer Love fanfic challenge. I had to wait until the voting was over and winners announced before I could post on other sites. Finally I can present it to my friends and readers here. I hope you will enjoy it.

This is a what if version of that period of time at the end of Season 3 and beginning of Season 4 when Justin has gone to Hollywood to help in the making of the movie, "Rage" . What if Brian couldn't take the separation from his lover any longer, especially with a New Year about to start? What would Brian do about it? I owe a great debt of gratitude to my friend, Judy for her beta help and my Granddaughter, Marika for the banner. Hugs, Grammy

Happy Halloween everyone!  I have a gift for you that I hope you will find to be a 'Treat' and not a 'Trick'.  For this year's Halloween, I thought I would skip a few generations and see what happens to Brian's Great-Grandson when he decides to buy the old building that once housed the Babylon Club and revive it, bringing it back to its once magnificent Dance Club Glory!  But Wait!!!  Could the place really be haunted?  And if so, what spirits are lingering there and what do they want?  Shall we find out?  Many thanks to my terrific beta, Judy for her last minute help with my story, and also to my Granddaughter for the very cool banner.  Enjoy!

Summary:

I heard a new song called 'Black Out the Sun' by Darren Hayes on an LJ QAF fan site and immediately got the image of this all important night when Brian finally said 'I Love You' to Justin for the first time.  I was so inspired I had to re-visit that scene and give my version of Brian's thoughts that fateful evening.  I have filled in a couple of gaps from the show, such as the time between Brian's hearing the radio announcement of the bombing and his arrival at Babylon, and the short period of time when Brian was with Debbie at the hospital chapel and before he came back for Justin.  I hope you will enjoy my interpretation.  I've included the lyrics to the song (which do not belong to me, of course) so that you can understand why it affected me the way it did.  A huge debt of gratitude goes to my beloved Granddaughter for the remarkable banner she made for this story and my wonderful beta, Judy.

It is after midnight here so it is now August 19th.  Today is the 4th Anniversary of the day I posted my very first Brian/Justin fanfic, 'All Aboard the Love Train'.  As is my custom on this day, I have a brand new short story for all the wonderful folks who have supported me ever since I took that leap of faith and started writing.  This time I'm going back to my beginning and giving you a sequel to the original story.  This time I'm sending our boys to Europe instead of Chicago.  I hope you'll enjoy the mischief this wonderful couple get into.  I must offer my deepest thanks to a group of ladies who have made this journey for me the greatest adventure of my life.  I dedicate this story to Judy who became my beta as well as good friend...to Lori who provided the means for me to continue writing and become a dear personal friend...to Becky and Gerri for their support even before I began...and to dear sweet Sunny who also went from reader to wonderful friend.  There are so many more I could name for their cherished support, but I don't want to turn this dedication into a short story too.  LOL!  Let's just say that I truly appreciate each and every one of you.  A special thank you to my darling Granddaughter, Marika, for again providing such a great banner for my story.  I hope you will enjoy!  Much love, Grammy

This is a What If story.  What If Justin did not meet Brian during his Senior year.  What if he was bashed for a different reason.  Do you remember that one moment in the show when Justin wished he had died from the bashing...when he lost it and pushed his mother down?  What if those suicidal thoughts went further, but a guardian angel steps in to give him a glimpse of what he will miss if he dies?  Will it be enough for our young man to fight for his life?  Or is it too late to change his destiny?  This story is unbeta'd at the moment because my beta is off to see Randy in the Berkshires.  That is more important.  LOL!  Corrections will be made when she has more time.  The banner is again by my talented Granddaughter, Marika.  Enjoy!

The Scars of Your Love by mandagrammy Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 5]
Summary:

 

I spent my weekend listening to songs, and one in particular...Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' inspired this story.  A line from the song mentions the scars of your love and ends with 'We could have had it all'.  Like with so many other songs, I ended up thinking of Brian and Justin.  In this story, Justin has been in NYC for a year and become a great success in the artistic community.  The only problem is, he misses Brian too much to enjoy all the accolades.  He decides to send Brian a message and hopes to get the response he is praying for.  Will he?  I must thank Judy for her Beta skills and my darling Granddaughter, Marika, for providing the perfect banner to tell the story.  I love you guys dearly.

Hello everyone. Today is my Third Anniversary. Yes, today is the day that I posted my very first fanfic story. I can't believe how fast time has flown. This is the 72nd story or poem I've posted and I've loved writing them all. I hope you will enjoy this new short story. I've decided to make it a post-Season 5 event that takes it forward a couple of decades to see what ended up happening to our beloved Brian and Justin. I have no banner right now since my favorite banner makers are far too busy preparing for the new school year and enjoying their last days of Summer vacation. I may have one in future. I do still have my beloved beta, Judy, and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for all her help. As always I welcome any comments you may have. Thank you one and all for all your support these past delicious three years. I hope to give you more entertainment in the future during my fourth year. So now, on with our story.

Hello again, my friends. Today I give you Chapter One of a brand new story. I promise you lots of sparkle, chills, thrills, sequins, and tights...not to mention romance...in this story set in post Stonewall, pre AIDS America where a small independent circus struggles to stay alive in a changing world. Their lead attraction is Trapeze star Brian Kinney and there are plenty of changes in store for him too when he meets the young man who is in desperate need of changes in his own life. What happens when these two souls meet and discover more than a love for the circus in common between them? I hope you will enjoy the journey.

I want to thank 3 special people for this story. One is Sunny, a dear friend who suggested the premise for this story. Another is Judy who will serve beautifully as my beta. Last but not least is my Granddaughter Amy who tried valiantly to get our boys into tights for the banner, but still created a beautiful one anyway. Thank you to them all. This story is dedicated to all of you. So on with the show.

Hello folks. Well, this time around I had an inspiration late on a Saturday night. By Sunday night it was written. I don't know where the thought came from, although I usually do. I guess my Muse was feeling frisky.

In this short story, we pick up the scene in the final episode of QAF where Brian is laying in his lonely bed after Justin has left for the airport. This is my version of what happened from that moment on. Warning...about 2/3 of the way in you are going to be jolted. Don't give up. Remember who is writing this and how I like my stories to end. LOL! Now, how about taking a long trip down memory lane with me. Hope you enjoy the journey.

Whoops!  I forgot to thank my dear friend, Judy for her beta skills and my beloved Granddaughter, Marika for the inspiring banner.  You girls are a blessing to me.

Summary: Feature

This story is the result of the request by a wonderful reader of mine named Lorie.  It begins in 2005.  Justin is a young man in NYC who makes his living as the writer of gay porn and adult fiction.  He has bigger goals for himself.  He dreams of publishing the great American gay romance novel, but he has little to base it on.  Justin does not do relationships and has little trust of others due to a painful childhood.  Brian Kinney is the owner of his own ad agency which has taken on Justin's publishing house as a new client.  What will happen when Brian and Justin meet eventually...two lost souls afraid of committment.  I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my Granddaughter, Amy, for the banner and my friend Pat for beta help.  I also want to thank Lorie for trusting me with her idea.  So enjoy and remember that comments are always welcome.

Moving Day by mandagrammy Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 13]
Summary:

Hello, my dear friends and readers. Well now, I'm finally settled in my new and wonderful home (even if everything isn't put up yet rolleyes.gif ) and I'm ready to get back to work. My muse has had a nice vacation but I've politely asked her to restart her engines and get me fired up. The first thought that came to mind was a moving day for our beloved boys in tribute to what I'd just gone through. I'm sorry I have no banner to accompany the story but Amy, my Granddaughter, has been swamped with last minute school work, the move, and her volunteer work at her Mom's place of employment. She said she'd get one done this weekend but I couldn't wait to post the story. I hope you will forgive me. I am hard at work on updating my ongoing stories now and will concentrate on them until I've made up for making you wait so patiently. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and understanding as I worked to improve the lives of my girls and myself. I hope you will enjoy my little story. It's a little tame but the love is always there.  Now on with the story... Brian and Justin change their minds about their future (a guy has the right to change his mind too) and moving day has finally arrived as they start out their new life together.

 This story is dedicated to both Judy and Anita who suggested to me that the lyrics from this song would fit perfectly in a B/J story.  I agree and I hope you will enjoy it too.  The setting is right after Brian proposes to Justin and is turned down.  This is a What if? story so I've changed Brian's response to the rejection.  I want to acknowledge the wonderful lyrics of the song which belong entirely to the lyricist Jerry Herman.  I also want to thank my dear friend, Pat for her beta skills and my Granddaughter, Amy for the breathtaking banner.

First of all, please let me apologize for the long delay in getting this story started. I encountered computer problems over a week ago and then was hit by health problems that have kept me from working on my writing for over a week. I'm doing better each day and hope to be back in the swing of things asap. Now on to this story. This is the sequel to Double Trouble and it will help you to understand the characters and their motivations if you've read DT first. Hopefully this one will stand up well on its own, however. This story picks up four years after DT ends. This time it is Gus and boyfriend Jason who are graduating from college and their sisters who are graduating from high school. The story will look back on the previous four years and then move on to their new lives together. Brian and Justin, still happily married, look with pride on the kids they helped move into adulthood together. I hope you will enjoy this continuation of their saga and remember that I welcome all comments. Many thanks to the genius work of Eka for the banner and my friend Pat for the beta work. Enjoy!

stories/10/images/AllsFairinLoveandWar.jpg

It is the Winter of 1944 in occupied France. The allies have landed and slowly, so slowly, made their attempt to push to the borders of Germany. Sergeant Brian Kinney is too busy trying to keep his men alive and do his duty to worry about anything else, much less a personal life. Every thing changes one day when one of his men, recently killed in an ambush, is replaced with a raw new recruit, Private Justin Taylor. The kid looks like he's barely out of High School and totally wet behind the ears. The Sarge is not happy, especially when without warning Sergeant Kinney finds himself fighting a different kind of war than the one on the battlefield. I am dedicating this story to my 83 year old Dad who served bravely and honorably in WWII and the Vietnam War. I am also dedicating this story to all the GLBT men and women who also served with honor, but in silence throughout history. Many thanks go to the amazing Eka for her brilliant banner and to my friend Pat for her beta skills.
