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.

This is a co-author fic with Bea Johnson, who suggested the idea. She, Nichelle Wellesly and Kathy Hearns are my awesome betas. Thanks ladies!

When a stray five year old named Gus shows up on Brian Kinney's doorstep one night, the Stud of Liberty Avenue is thrown unprepared into the scary and uncharted realms of parenthood. Luckily he happens upon a hot little blond with a parenting story of his own.
This story is a true piss you off, make you cry, all emotion, encompassing tale that will leave you satisfied by the end. -Jazzepoet
As we know from the show, Brian promises Justin a week-long vacation in Vermont but instead ends up going to Chicago to win the Brown Athletics account and save his job. Feeling hurt and betrayed, Justin goes snowboarding at Sugarbush Resort without his "boyfriend." Fuck him! But then Brian shows up in the middle of the night and their griping eventually leads to seriously hot make-up sex. Unfortunately, Brian's condoms are not designed to accommodate an impressive cock like Justin's. Breakage is all but inevitable. What happens when it actually occurs? (Considering the fact that the tags say "mpreg," I'm willing to guess that Brian gets pregnant.)
Also, can Brian snowboard without lessons?? What about give birth? Read and find out.
Believe it or not, despite being an mpreg fic, this story is not schmoopy (at all), and Brian and Justin are not OoC. Go, me!
I choose this story because it has drama, intrigue, humor, sex... all the things which allow me to settle and suspend my reality for a good long while. Anytime I'm ready to bite folks for disturbing me while reading... well you KNOW that's a great read! -Nichelle Wellesley
Sequel to The Buzz of the Wasp.

The reason I picked Summer Of Sin for my admin pick is partly because it is so well written and the other reason is that the amazing Tagsit invited readers to come watch her write and maybe join in. I was curious, so I started watching her write. Then she would chat with those of us that had joined in getting ideas and suggestions. At one point she asked me why I didn't write my own stories, I said because I couldn't. She gave me the encouragement to try and now I love writing. Through her I have met some really great people. Enjoy the Summer Of Sin - Lorie
