QaF devotee and avid fanfiction reader. I'm an old broad who came late to the table where fanfiction was concerned. I didn't even know it existed until about five years ago. When I found it, a whole new world was laid out before me!
The creativity and ingenuity of the writers I discovered inspired my own creative juices and I began posting my first fanfiction story, Alterations, in April of 2012. It's been a marvelous exploration of my own psyche, pulling out my own fears and foibles and foisting them upon my characters. For myself, at least, the best fiction often comes from the most painful of realities.
Ted Schmidt, up and coming Adult Entertainment mogul, decides to launch a new website, this one one targeted to reach the fastest growing segment of the gay porn market - straight women. Ted hires Daphne Chanders, a hot young amateur porn writer, to help him write and produce the porn shorts he wants to make for this site. Daphne convinces her friend, Justin, to join the project as one of the actors. Ted offers a similar job to his friend, Brian. While they're all engaged in making delightfully porny movielets for their eager and fanatic female audience, will the two stars slowly begin to fall in love for real?

Sometimes things just don't measure up. Then again, some times they do.
AU: In a (not quite) parallel reality far, far away...
A little paranormal help for the boys over the holidays.

This should have been posted before Christmas, but I was distracted by real life angst and lingering election depression. ::Sigh::
A Justin - Gus ficlet. On Christmas Day, Justin rationalizes his feelings for Brian's son.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Summary: And with the end of Brian Kinney came the end of all that existed around him.
(Not *really* a death fic, but... well, you'll see.)
In the wake of losing a crucial political battle, Brian and Justin discuss how to go on. My retake on the Stockwell arc and the processing of my own current grief.
Post 513: Under all circumstances, Justin will take care of Brian.
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation to any of the principles of Cowlip or Queer as Folk, nor do I own any of the characters.
I am a sucker for "Brian in Peril" stories and this is one of the best I've read. The author does a great job dissecting Brian's complex mind. Phenomenal writing, interesting premise, and a satisfying ending. Can't ask for much more! -charming1
After Justin leaves for New York, the remaining members of the Liberty Avenue family go about their everyday lives, never suspecting that something serious is happening to Brian. When the realization hits, they find that everyone's lives are irrevocably altered.
Welcome to the Kinnetik Dreams Featured Author Q&A. This month's author is NoChaser, a long-time QAF fandom favorite. Come on in and find out all about this veteran fanfic writer!
*This is a bit outdated now (Yay! Thank you SCOTUS!), but I wrote this as an homage to the striking down of Pennsylvania's same-sex marriage ban by the U.S. District Court. It still feels gooood!
Brian and Justin both have encounters in the wake of the Babylon bombing and face their fears.
Includes a very minor canon character.
Brian thinks he finally has Justin figured out. A drabble.
There comes a moment of seemingly cruel realization, a moment in which you come into ownership of a parenthetical knowledge about your identity. It should pale in comparison to your diagnosis. But it doesn't; it supercedes it. Runs past all the cautionary information relayed to you by physicians and counselors and rushes to the finish line. It's an insidious understanding that you are now not only Positive - you are Appositive. Your identity will forevermore be placed into brackets, qualified and added to and amended. If only within yourself. No longer are you John. You are now, John +. - Benjamin Bruckner, R-U-1-2 *
Their lives were little paper boats, like the ones Gus folded and shaped and set out to sea at the park, no particular destination in mind.
Post 513, heavy on the angst.
Sometimes fantasy can point you to the truth.
Not a cross-over fic.
Justin doesn't survive the bombing. Dark and not an ounce of fluff. MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH.
Just eight little letters.
One powerful word.
And life can change forever.
A little drabble fic in nine months...erm...parts.
SUMMARY: That damned Showtime channel and their time limits. Due to circumstances beyond their control (I'm sure), Cowlip et al were exceedingly surprised when the finale of QaF was cut short by a few minutes. It changed everything and, boy, were they pissed. But... what were a couple of rich, influential producers of a successful ground breaking hit show to do? Apparently, nothing. The milk had been spilled, the cart overturned, the bridge burned... But, here is how the ending was ACTUALLY filmed. (I swear, this is true. I heard it from a friend who has a cousin who works with this guy who dated a celluloid vault-keeper's sister...)
SUMMMARY: Justin realized he could get a lot more with the effective use of peroxide.
(Stepping way out into the realm of pseudo-sexism and stereotyping with this little piece, folks. Justin's hair changed color, darkened, a lot over the course of the series. I figured he had a little help with it in S1. I just made him a bit more blond.)
An absolutely silly little ficlet.
Cpt. Justin Taylor-Kinney goes missing in Afghanistan.
Part of the "Be All That You Can Be" universe. (Sequel to BATYCB and Moonbbow)
"There are just some things that should never, logically, exist in this world, Brian Kinney. Good kids kicked around or tossed away for being who they are. Hate-filled Christians. Diseases that eat away at the very soul of a being. They just don't make sense. Then again, we have the platypus. Flying fish. A midnight moonbow. Trained soldiers with soft touches and artistic souls. They make not a shit's worth of sense, either. But exist they do. And I'll deal with the bad if I can find that little bit of good, and thank god for it."
Two weeks in the 'Be All That You Can Be' universe. (Sequel to BATYCB)
After that one night stand and haunting promises of ‘seeing me in your dreams', the lives of Brian and Justin took divergent routes. Justin ends up at a place in life no one ever thought he would be, and ultimately no one is happier about that than Brian.
