Aftercare by mandagrammy Rated: YA Liked [Reviews - 2] New!
Summary:

This story picks up right where 'Aftermath' ends.  This is the third and final installment in the 'After' series of stories about the aftereffects of Justin's bashing by the despicable Chris Hobbs.  This story centers primarily on those closest to Justin and how they deal with what has happened.  It's my interpretation of what could have been going on in between scenes during the first episode of Season 2.  I hope you will enjoy it.  

My eternal gratitude to the remarkable Judy for her beta skills, and my beautiful granddaughter, Marika, for the evocative banner.  I love you both dearly.

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?”

This time, his filters were firmly in place, because Justin knew that kicking, punching, and destroying wasn’t going to fix this. It wasn’t going to take away the fact that his lover had cancer.

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.
