Epilogue to the Betrayal Series and set two years after Restoration. We catch a glimpse of life in the Kinney household.
STORY #5 in the Perfidy Series
I thought this story was very different from anything I'd read before. Very well written and could have easily been in the show. -SunshineSally
This was written immediately after S3 ended. It's canon friendly and deals with the aftermath of Stockwell's defeat and Brian's financial situation.
Brian and Justin are the same age. They were at the same kindergarten and were best friends. The gang doesn’t know Justin and he decides to tease them a little bit.
I heard a new song called 'Black Out the Sun' by Darren Hayes on an LJ QAF fan site and immediately got the image of this all important night when Brian finally said 'I Love You' to Justin for the first time. I was so inspired I had to re-visit that scene and give my version of Brian's thoughts that fateful evening. I have filled in a couple of gaps from the show, such as the time between Brian's hearing the radio announcement of the bombing and his arrival at Babylon, and the short period of time when Brian was with Debbie at the hospital chapel and before he came back for Justin. I hope you will enjoy my interpretation. I've included the lyrics to the song (which do not belong to me, of course) so that you can understand why it affected me the way it did. A huge debt of gratitude goes to my beloved Granddaughter for the remarkable banner she made for this story and my wonderful beta, Judy.
Post 414, Brian has asked Justin to move in, Justin hasn't answered, what now? (This series picks up after the last episode of Season 4 and was written before Season 5- the final season- ever aired.) Written in 2004-2005.
(21 chapters + 3 epilogues)
Non-con dealing with the emotional aftermath rather than violence.
Brian and Justin experience a First. Set somewhere in early to mid-season 1
“Livvy, what are you doing? It’s the middle of the night. “
The first time he spanked me, we were rudely interrupted and to be honest, I didn’t have much of an appreciation back then for spankings.
Justin is pregnant and his parents try to ship him off to live with a family friend whom they are forcing Justin to give his child to. Instead, Justin takes a different flight.
Brian and Justin meet while Brian is interviewing him for a position in his ad agency, "Exhibition". Justin is a confident recent graduate of the prestigious MFA program at CMU. He knows his boyfriend isn't "the one", but he's definitely not searching for "the one" either, and probably doesn't even believe in that stuff anyway. Brian owns Babylon, which was bombed a few years ago and he nearly lost his best friends, and all this has made him view things in life a little differently. He's happy with his life, proud of his son and proud of himself for owning two booming businesses before he's even turned forty. He's still confident, vain and is the most valued dick in Babylon. Meeting Justin, becoming friends with Justin is something that he sort of hates but has absolutely no control over. Especially because somehow, being with Justin is Brian's favorite part of the day. He'd never think or admit that though... maybe.
Post-series, 6 months later. Justin goes on a reality TV show. There is hidden danger and shocking surprises around ever corner.
Written for the "Dare to be Bare"; challenge. Brian and Justin need a vacation, as fate has it, they go to Japan. This is NOT a fic based on the Earthquake or Tsunami. Takes place roughly 3-4 years after 513, they are living together at Britin.
Justin chooses to stay in Pittsburgh, instead of leaving to New York. Brian and Justin decide to have a few days for themselves at their new house. Their absence creates panic amongst their friends. One-shot.
This is my version of how I would have liked to have seen the final episode end, and how I believe many other fans would have as well.
Thanks to Predec2 for the translation work and for the very special banner.
