I first started writing fan fiction before the internet was really much of a thing, and way before fan fiction archives existed. My best friend and I didn't even know that's what we were doing when we started crafting stories starring our favorite TV characters alongside original characters we'd created. I wrote *NSYNC fan fiction in high school, that bit the dust when the site I'd posted it on decided to no longer host RPF. Then I dabbled in Harry Potter fan fic in college. Then all of the reading and writing I had to do for grad school all but killed my love of reading, and it's taken me a long time to truly get back into it. Ten years later, I think I'm finally fully there, and I'm back to writing again too.


I've been a fan of QAF since college, in the early 2000s. Brian is my favorite character, because he's so complex, and I truly believe we owe a lot of that to Gale Harold and the way he interpreted the character. I'm a B/J shipper all the way. I'm not a Michael hater. And I love all of the hurt/comfort and the angst.

Summary:

The first time Debbie Novotny heard about Brian Kinney, Michael was in the eighth grade. It was just after spring break. He’d come home from school chattering away excitedly about the new boy in his class who’d just moved to Pittsburgh from some town she couldn’t remember. All through dinner it was Brian this, and Brian that. Michael was clearly enamored with this Brian kid.
