This piece began in March sometime as I was finishing Chapter 42 of BYBR. It's a standalone season 5 gap-filler; I suppose it fits somewhere between episodes 503 and 507.
Seasons 1& 2 Hybrid with emphasis on the bashing and the recovery from it as I think it could have/ should have happened.
Initial Plot Bunny from Deb Tanner: What if Michael had tried to stop Brian from going into the prom and had witnessed the attack?
I chose this story because it is not your typical Brian and Justin story. Also it deals with a subject that is very important to me. I lost a friend due to the lack of a donor -Lorie
Life has always been a constant struggle for eighteen year-old Justin Taylor, until one fateful day at the diner when he meets the man known as the Stud of Liberty Avenue, Brian Kinney. Both of their lives are changed forever in a way that neither of them ever anticipated.
What if Justin didn't run off to New York after Brian's loft got burgled? What happens when one random encounter with a homeless man makes all the difference and Justin decides to face the situation like an adult? Join us on the journey to find out.
It's been a year, a year full of pain and sorrow. A year in which nothing meant anything for Brian. After losing Justin at the bombing in Babylon everything was white and black.
However... what will happen if one day suddenly everything changed? What if he had never really met Justin? Then why does he remember everything they had gone through while the rest of the gang doesn't even know who Justin is?
Now that Brian has a way to contact Justin, he'll do whatever it takes to win his Sunshine back.
But what happens when our favorite teenager tries to move on from the stud of Liberty Avenue?
Will Brian be able to win him over in time?
Or lose him forever?
Justin comes back from Vermont and finds Brian fucking a trick on 'their' bed, a punishment from the older man- who was hurt when he came to an empty loft, when he wanted to celebrate his partnership with the one he cared the most.
But Justin didn't see that, hasn't been able to read Brian since the bashing. He only sees a man that doesn't care enough about him and decides to leave him.
Will Brian be able to get his head out of his ass to win Justin back? Or will it be too late?
No fiddler, in this story Justin never cheated.
Justin is tired of his and Brian's "relationship." It seems Brian is merely experimenting with the concept of love - and that he, Justin, has been unwillingly cast in the role of a canary in a coal mine to test Brian's ability to be part of a couple. Meanwhile, Brian is struggling with the realization that buying Justin stuff like flowers and taking him on a trip to Vermont doesn't mean he's selling-out to the straight world. Will Brian figure it all out before Justin slips through his fingers? Canon compliant. The story is complete and has six chapters.
I see him in red, clouded in thick liquid like I'm watching him through water.
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?
This is a continuation of "Close to Home", the story where Brian is confined to a wheelchair.
Brian Kinney had a terrible childhood and a difficult, lonely life as an adult. Before the age of thirty he's already become so jaded that he doesn't believe in love or even in true happiness. After years of dealing with a dysfunctional family and an uncaring world, it seems like he's just about ready to give up completely. But, the guardian spirit that's been watching over him since Brian was a baby decides to save him, teaching him that true love does exist and that it can even transcend the laws of space and time.

Justin reflects back on his life, and his regrets…
When Brian hears over the radio that Babylon was subjected to a bombing, all he can concentrate on is racing to his club to make sure the people he loves are alive and safe.

The name 'Nathan Ash' was only one piece of the puzzle that made up his life.
Two years after Justin leaves, Brian decides that living apart isn't what he wants. He makes his move to be together. What if that happens along with an offer from a friend to have a baby.
Lorie thank you for doing what you do for me as my beta, the readers probably thank you too.
Justin is gone and Brian can't help but think it was all a huge mistake. Just a short little piece about how it might have been post 513.
AU after Brian breaks Justin's heart in episode 2. This is Mpreg, but I really like Mpreg. Craig marries Justin off to an abusive man after finding out Justin is pregnant.
