I'm a REALLY late comer to the QAF world - I didn't have cable back when the show was on. I only recently discovered it (Nov. 2011) when I came across it on DVD at my local public library. I instantly fell in love - this has to be one of the greatest love stories ever told and I can't get enough. I never was a fan fic reader, writer or anything prior to QAF. Now, I'm pretty much obsessed.
I live in Portland, Oregon in the US. I have been known to plug my hometown in my stories - its a great place to live and if anyone wants to visit, I'd be happy to play tour guide.
Hope you all enjoy my stories! I know that I've enjoyed writing them more than I ever thought I would. TAG

“Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.” Lev Grossman
5/21/15 - Three years in now and I've posted twenty stories - 18 are complete and two are long-term WIPs - for a total of more than 1.25 million words. I've hosted two writing challenges, helped out a couple new writers by doing some beta work and hosted an internationally attended online QAF marathon. In the last year I also wrote my first original story, which is a major accomplishment I never dreamed I'd complete. I'd never have done any of that without the inspiration of QAF. Fanfic really CAN change lives! TAG

After having been missing for a week, Brian shows up at the Diner with no memory of where he’s been. Over the course of the night he starts to recall flashes of what’s happened to him and realizes that there’s another young man still missing and he’s the only one who can help the boy. The question is, will Brian remember in time to rescue the lost one?
Brian Kinney is on a business trip to London when he accidentally discovers a time portal which allows him to travel between the present day and wartime Great Britain. What adventures will our favorite stud get up to in a past where being gay was still a crime . . .
Summary: First Grade Justin decides he’s not going to let anyone tell him who he should be. Written for the 2017 QAF Gift Exchange for Cuivresdesaxe.
Dr. Kinney has a unique prescription to help cure Justin’s cold. Written for the 2017 QAF Gift Exchange for LJ alaschija.
Emmett tells the story of how HE was responsible for bringing Brian and Justin together (or at least his version of the story). This story is an eclectic mix which is part fairy tale, part folk tale, and part tall tale, with an appropriate amount of alliteration and sprinkled all over with a generous amount of humor.
Did you ever wish you could go back in time and change just one thing you’d done - just one - thinking that you could change your whole life for the better? Well, Brian Kinney did. He was sure that all his problems stemmed from that first time he broke his first rule about sex - never let a trick stay the whole night. If he had never let Justin Taylor insinuate himself into his life, he would still be the top Stud of Liberty Avenue, free from the heartache and headaches of a relationship, with his friendships and family intact. At least that was what Brian was thinking the night after Justin left him and went to live with the stepford fags, Michael & Ben. But, every action has some direct or indirect consequence and Brian may not necessarily like the results that he gets when he wishes he could go back in time and change his life. This story begins after Episode 5.07 but flashes back to episode 1.02 & 1.03.
There’s something very mysterious about the big house in the country that Brian just purchased . . .
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.
Brian Kinney needs a last minute date to join him at a client’s wedding, so he grabs the first available guy he sees - a naive, sheltered, and unsophisticated blond boy that he saves from a mental hospital. A boy who’s got a very unusual past. This is the story of their adventure together. Oh, and Justin doesn’t like wearing shoes for some reason . . .
*Reader's Choice Award, Favorite Friendship: Brian/Justin and Justin/Animals*
Brian Kinney had a terrible childhood and a difficult, lonely life as an adult. Before the age of thirty he's already become so jaded that he doesn't believe in love or even in true happiness. After years of dealing with a dysfunctional family and an uncaring world, it seems like he's just about ready to give up completely. But, the guardian spirit that's been watching over him since Brian was a baby decides to save him, teaching him that true love does exist and that it can even transcend the laws of space and time.

After Justin leaves for New York, Brian turns to his oldest friend for comfort and realizes he might have overlooked a good thing for far too long. Maybe there really was something there between them? Maybe Michael can fill that hole in his heart that Justin has left behind. Maybe he should at least give them a try? After all, a Superhero needs his sidekick, right? Of course, Michael certainly isn’t going to object to his dream stud finally returning his attentions. But will it work out? Brian will only know if he throws himself into the opportunity and sees if Michael really is his future.
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
Brian, who’s in need of money with which to start his own ad agency, takes Ted up on a chance to appear as a contestant in a reality show the ‘Internet Porn King’ is producing on his website. The only catch is that all the participants will be naked for the duration of the competition. Brian Kinney doesn’t think being confined to a house full of naked, horny men for the Summer will be difficult, but is he really ready for the challenges he’ll face in this lustful and raunchy game? What if one of the challenges is a very young and very inexperienced Justin Taylor? Let the games begin!

Just a tasty, porny little piece of yumminess brought to you in honor of of the Holiday Season.
Brian Kinney has rented a summer house on Fire Island for his first vacation in years. His plan is to spend the summer experiencing all the various delights - and men - this Gay Mecca has to offer. His first night there, though, he’s confronted by a hot little blond townie with an agenda who refuses to accept Brian’s rule that he doesn’t do repeats. The two men make a bet - If Justin can keep Brian amused and entertained all summer, then Brian will give him a job come fall. Little did Brian know just how determined and inventive Justin really was.
*****STORY IS NOW COMPLETE - ENJOY!*****
Justin has grown up in a very different household than seen in canon. He is living on the streets when he is found by the Liberty Diner gang and is rescued - malnourished, exhausted and ill - and taken home by Brian. Can Justin be brought out of this hell he's been resigned to by his hateful father? Can Brian find the one thing that will make Justin whole again?
This story is based on a prior fic - 'Smolder' - by LovelessSouls. All credit for the haunting story premise goes to the original author, as well as my thanks for letting me repost the first two chapters of that story.
Brian Kinney is disturbed by the sounds of misery coming from the downstairs neighbor’s apartment. When he meets the apartment’s occupant, he finds that he can’t ignore what’s going on. Is there some way that Brian can help this apparently lost soul and maybe heal himself in the process?
