Formerly titled Don't Know Why But I Do: Smoke and Mirrors

Two years ago advertising guru and sometime artist Brian Kinney was shot and nearly killed but an angel called Justin saved his life. Neither of them has forgotten the other. When they are brought back together by Liberty Avenue's Mistress of Love, Marilyn and his close friend Emmett sparks fly once again, much to the delight of The Avenue, as well as Justin's friends Chris and Daphne.

But questions still haunt The Avenue, who tried to kill Brian? Why did they try and do it? Why is Michael's childhood best friend Mercy back in town? What secret is she hiding?

This is a story of mysteries and revenge, but most of all a story of love.

We own nothing, not a damn thing there is no copyright infringement intended  whatsoever.

Summary:

 

“All I’m saying is, someone should have called Justin.”

The blonde young man standing outside the door to the diner was surprised to hear his name in a conversation coming from inside.

“Brian told me not to. What was I supposed to do, go against his wishes and do it anyway?” Justin recognized this voice -- Michael.

“I know he told you not to. I was there.” Ben. “I said it then, and I’ll say it again now: It’s disrespectful to Justin to not tell him, or at least warn him ahead of time. Can you imagine what it’s going to be like Justin walks in and sees him?”

Flight by TrueIllusion Rated: A Liked [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

This was why he didn’t do boyfriends. He didn’t do love. He didn’t do commitment. Because when you do boyfriends...love...commitment...you let yourself get attached. When you do boyfriends, you hope and pray they won’t ever leave you. Because if they do, you’ll feel like your soul has been torn out and you have nothing left to live for.
**************
This is a song fic based on Lifehouse's "Flight." It takes place shortly after the series finale.

Inescapable by suzvoy Rated: M Liked [Reviews - 21]
Summary: Feature

Suzvoy has taken episode 510 and turned it on its head!  Everything is canon except one thing... Take a read and see how Brian is Brian and yet grows and learns how to love - mamaduck

This story is a serious AU, based on episode 510. Knowledge of this would be a distinct advantage, and if you haven't seen it then this fic could be considered a big ol' spoiler for what happens in said ep.
