SUMMARY: It's hard coming to grips with the loss of someone you love. It's harder still when you feel a weight of guilt for their death. And sometimes it's just the bigger picture you're afraid of facing.
Did you ever wish you could go back in time and change just one thing you’d done - just one - thinking that you could change your whole life for the better? Well, Brian Kinney did. He was sure that all his problems stemmed from that first time he broke his first rule about sex - never let a trick stay the whole night. If he had never let Justin Taylor insinuate himself into his life, he would still be the top Stud of Liberty Avenue, free from the heartache and headaches of a relationship, with his friendships and family intact. At least that was what Brian was thinking the night after Justin left him and went to live with the stepford fags, Michael & Ben. But, every action has some direct or indirect consequence and Brian may not necessarily like the results that he gets when he wishes he could go back in time and change his life. This story begins after Episode 5.07 but flashes back to episode 1.02 & 1.03.
A ‘what-if' of a sort. I recently re-read ‘Decision/Reaction', an AIDS/HIV one-shot by Simon. This ficlet is set as an interlude in Simon's ‘Decision/Reaction' ‘verse. (Link to Simon's story is in the Story Notes.)
This would be set around 2010. Brian would be around 38 and Justin would be around 26.
A drabble from Brian's POV set during the Ethan arc.
All they could do was give each other the very last thing they needed.
MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH. Future Fic.
Following a tragedy on Liberty Avenue, Carl decides to open a shelter for gay youths with some help from good friends and the community.
This story is set in charming1 and Lorie's "Bittersweet Universe" and is a prequel to Bittersweet Promise. However, this can be read as a stand-alone story.
Present day, post-episode 5.13. Justin has returned to Pittsburgh to build a life and future with Brian. When Daphne asks Justin for a favor, he agrees without realizing the effect it will later have on him, Brian, and their entire family’s lives.
A pivotal scene between Justin and Brian early in season five plays out differently, changing their relationship.
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.
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.
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.
