I live in Melbourne Australia, and first got into QAF back in 2001. The first season screened in Aus at around the same time that Season 2 was airing in the States. I watched the first episode and became an instant adict. 15 years later I still am.

Luck of the Irish by Wren New! Rated: R [Reviews - 8]
Summary:

An AU which popped into my head a few years back around St. Patrick's Day when I was listening to Tommy Fleming singing Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears.  (Which turned out to be ironic, because Brian doesn't actually enter the US through Ellis Island.)  It's set in the early 1900s.  Justin is the son of a wealthy NY merchant. Brian is a poor Irish immigrant.  Only the luck of the Irish could bring them together.

Leaving Home by Wren Rated: R [Reviews - 6]
Summary:

This fic is set about 12 years after the end of S5 and is part of the Gus/Dani Homecoming!future. Short version - Justin came back to Pittsburgh and he and Brian have been together through all that time, living in a house on the river that they bought after selling Britin. With thanks to SandiD - who put up with my pernickityness and complete inability to explain what I meant and did a wonderful image; if I stuffed it up at the end, then that's my clumsiness.

Christmas Memories: 2029 by Wren Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 3]
Summary:


Memories copy.jpg

 

Written for the qaf_giftxhchnge 2018 on LJ.

The request was from sfscarlet and was for:
Fic angst, AU, canon-compliant, hurt/comfort, humor Brian/ Justin- / Gus- Gus is an adult- time could be holiday or family reunion or just visiting B/J- writer's choice. Gus reminiscing about growing up with B/J- Funny stories, harrowing tales, first times, tales about trips they made- anything the writer chooses. Would love at least 2-3 stories ( tales) that Gus shares. B/J could disagree with his memories and they could tell their version- if writer chooses. ( not necessary- just choice of writer)

This is the result. It's set in 2029. I think of this as being loosely Homecoming future, but all that anyone needs to know is that Brian and Justin have been living together in Pittsburgh in a riverside house since Justin's return from New York. Justin and Daphne have a daughter – Dani. Brian, Justin, and Daphne are co-parents, an arrangement which works well for them all. Dani is 16, Gus is 29.


WARNING:A little snarky about Mikey and the Munchers.

Real Treasure by Wren Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 3]
Summary:




Treasure final copy.jpg

Written for qaf_giftxchnge 2018 on LJ, although this one is not, per se, a Christmas story.

The request was for:

Fic fluff/schmoop, hurt/comfort, sexy fun times Brian/Justin sexy domestic fluff or a health scare that prompts a relaxing vacation


So here it is.  It's set maybe 2 years post 513.  Justin returned from New York about 12 months ago, but they sold Britin and have been living at the loft.  Justin rents studio space.

WARNING: Very mild (for me, at least) snark about Michael.

Reason to Celebrate by Wren Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 9]
Summary:

This was written for the "37 Days of Gusmas" challenge. This was a fund-raising challenge to raise money for the Ali Forley Center which provides shelter for homeless GLBT kids.

In the Gusmas challenges there are 37 prompts - some words or phrases, some images - covering the days from Thanksgiving to New Year's Eve. The challenge is to write one or more drabbles based on the prompts.

I've cobbled together a story based on drabbles for each of the 37 prompts.

Christmas Surprise by Wren Rated: NC-18 [Reviews - 8]
Summary:

Another little Christmas offering, written while I've been travelling. It's unbeta'd and I haven't even really done a full read through but hopefully there aren't too many errors.

It's set in the Homecoming!future 'verse. Gus is thirteen and Dani is just a few weeks old.

Anyway, here it is.

Gift Request: Brian/Justin gets custody of Gus, don't particularly care how. If you want to go the Lesbian!hate route, that's fine by me.
Summary: Post S5 in an AU where there is no JR (just purely because it simplified the plot). Something has happened in Toronto and Brian gets a phone call that sends him into action.

Summary:

Daphne sends Justin one of those relationship articles and wants to know what he thinks.  He responds based on his own relationship experience.  Which, funnily enough, doesn't bear a lot of resemblance to something from a hetero magazine.

 

Exerpts from the real original article (entitled "6 Ways You Have Sex When You're in a Committed Relationship") are in italics.

Summary:

A kinda cutesy Gus fic. If you're looking for grittiness and angst, look elsewhere. Gus wants to see Santa.  He's relying on Dadda and Dus to make that happen.

Christmas Presence by Wren Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 4]

This is set sometime in the first few months after the end of S5. Justin is living in New York. Brian is planning a surprise.


(This was written to allow it to be read as something like a prequel to Homecoming, if that makes any difference.)

Tree Troubles by Wren Rated: PARENTAL GUIDANCE -13 [Reviews - 4]
Summary:

Summary: Set in an AU in which, after the Babylon bombing, everything goes pretty much back to normal. Mel and Linds re-unite, as, of course, do Brian and Justin, but there’s no running off to Canada, no wedding plans, no bizarro exit for Justin to New York.

Summary:


At the time, this was the only truly AU bj fic I've ever written. All of the others assumed at least that they met the same as in canon, however what happens next might vary.

But in this one ... Brian and Justin meet when Justin is slightly older and in a completely different way.

Gus in this story is around 3 and the girls are still living in Pittsburgh.
