This should have been posted before Christmas, but I was distracted by real life angst and lingering election depression. ::Sigh::
Brian and Justin are going to relive their lives. This does contain Major Charater Death, but they return.
Thank you Lorie for Beta'ing this for me.
Thank you Shari for the beautiful banner.
Before Justin and Brian met, they both wanted something else: Justin wanted to be older and Brian wanted to be younger. They both get their wish, sort of. Brian wakes up in Justin's body and Justin wakes up in Brian's body.
This story was adopted by charming1. Original plot and Chapter 1 by SLHR.
Brian always goes out of town, uses his middle name and pays in cash when he feels the need to bottom. This time is no different except that JT, the young man who helps relieve his itch is everything he wants in a lover. Away from Pittsburgh and his reputation, Brian feels free to be a different man, but his worlds soon collide with JT's dark past adding difficulties to an already uneasy situation.
Justin has escaped a gilded cage mired in abuse. Having finally broken free, he is now looking to redefine himself as a man. When the offer to become the new Art Director for Kinnetik PA comes in, he jumps at the chance for freedom.
Brian hires Justin as the new Art Director for Kinnetik PA but Brian has secrets of his own. Can each of them teach the other to trust someone other than themselves?
A huge thanks to Marny for the gorgeous banner.
Brian's plan is to have a night out with Michael, before he heads to New York to spend some time with Justin the next day. But when he awakes, Brian realizes that going out the night before was a mistake, a BIG mistake.
Mysterious Marilyn is up to her old tricks. Offering advice to the Stud of Liberty Ave can cause the future to change in the blink of an eye when Mysterious Marilyn reads the cards and doesn't see a happy ending for Brian and Justin. But is the future set up in concrete? Not only will things be different for Brian, but just about everyone around him will feel its affects. What happens when after Brian follows the cards written and later the reading changes? Can the future be changed? Should it be changed? Where does Justin fit in? You'd be surprised. Watch as Mysterious Marilyn meddles in peoples lives to correct her mistake.
Summary: Set late in season one . . . Brian’s being an ass as usual, but will he finally regret at least one of his actions? He should know better than to make wishes he really doesn't want to come true in the presence of Mysterious Marilyn! Tehehehehe . . . .
