Story Notes:

WARNING: No beta at the moment. Present day, post 5x13, somewhat of a kid!fic but won't completely focus on her. Brian and Justin are no longer together in this universe. I actually started this as a one-shot that was supposed to end bittersweet, open-ended, and with Justin and Brian just becoming friends again. As I wrote it, it occurred to me that it is not going to be ending up that way. If they don't end up together by the end of this story, then they will end up together in the sequel. However, this story will center around the rebuilding of a friendship between Brian and Justin and their ability to find love with other people.
