Brian Kinney can come and go as he pleases, do what he wants, when he wants with who he wants. And now he's about to enter fatherhood with his best friend Lindsay and her wife Mel, who despite their earlier rocky start, are close. However, a few spanners are thrown into his world. Lindsay's grasping friend Dusty is turning her head. Michael's callousness towards Ben is turning his stomach and Claire's cruelty towards his nephews, especially Peter, is bringing back bad memories. When all three situations start to implode, Justin Taylor’s return further messes with his equilibrium. The question Brian has to honestly answer is he the last or the best thing he needs?
Everyone has their secrets don't they? Some good, some bad, some unforgiveable. But what if that secret when it comes out leads to the best feelings in the world for those that deserve it, love, happiness and being unburdened. This is what happens when the secrets between family and friends come to light.

Everyone has been placed in charge of their own lives. As Brian and Justin begin to design theirs, Michael and Lindsay are having to deal with what they wanted... just not the way they wanted it.
Again, a special THANK YOU goes out to Lorie, who I find an AMAZING person to know. I seriously couldn't do what I do without you. Love you!
Flip a coin... any coin! But what happens when two sides of the same coin meet? Brian Kinney and Justin Taylor are about to find out. And what happens when the two aloof men find themselves breaking all of their self-imposed rules? Guaranteed mayhem!
Michael returns from Portland as a man on a mission. How is he going to respond when he finds out just how much things have changed? And will he finally figure out that it’s time to design his own life, instead of trying to plan Brian’s?
It’s decision time… and not only for Michael.
Again, a MAJOR shoutout goes to Lorie, who is helping me to endure the Committee of Whine and Coo at constant war in my head. And also to Cathy Sunderland (BritinManor) and Deb Tanner for the bunnies that is inspiring the continuation of this series. All of you ladies are AAAAaaa-MAZING!
HAPPY READING, Y'ALL!
I am writing this story, my first attempt at fanfiction, to avenge my voice for I have used it too many times to shout at my screen every time CowLip managed to screw their own story. In my opinion, for this is what it is, just my opinion, CowLip came up with great characters but failed in their development. I can't deny that their work was avant garde but I always wondered what would have happened if Brian wasn't so afraid of showing emotions. I changed a lot of things because I want to give the basic story a twist of my own and I hope you will like it.
For one of the twists, I got loosely inspired by "Can I come back home to you" and "And now we start on married life" by SammyScaDoo
I don't like Michael and Lindsay. They are the embodiment of parasites and I make it a duty to verbally beat down the Michael and Lindsay in the real world.
Some parts might remind you of something you have already read. As I can't remember every story I have ever read, and while I hope to limit myself to orginal ideas, apart from my disclosed inspiration, if I inadvertently borrow a storyline from anyone in the fandom, feel free to mentiion in the comments section and I'll make sure to give credit to the original author.
The gang meets Justin's family, Michael and Lindsay are up to no good and Lindsay is also being humilated at work. FUN!
Billionaire ad exec, Brian Kinney has just moved to town, riding in on his motorcycle to open a new branch of his very successful agency, Kinnetic. Soon after settling in to one of the largest mansions in the area with his two dogs, he meets his neighbor, Justin Taylor. Justin is a world renowned cellist who has recently moved into a nearby mansion. He loves fast cars, adorable cats, and has the annoying habit of practicing….loudly, (at least according to Brian) for hours on end. Despite his initial annoyance, Brian soon grows fond of the music and the cellist, but after experiencing a broken heart in the past has vowed to never allow himself to love again. The problem is, the heart wants what the heart wants, and there's not much the brain can do to stop it.
Huge love and thanks as ever to our betas: Nichelle, Kathy and Brandi

David explains why he was looking for Brian... what will he tell them?
Emmett introduces Justin to Lindsay and Michael. And Brian finally tells his two wanna-be-best-friends off.
Another part in the "Consequences" Series...
This happened during the talks between B/J and the gang. I didn’t include that part in the previous chapter because I wanted to focus on the meetings and first impressions. Oh and this will also tell the story about our guys.
Melanie brings the family - minus Michael and Lindsay - to Britin. The family gets to meet Justin. How will that afternoon go?
The family learns about Brian's secret... how will they react? Who'll be happy for Brian?
3rd part of the "Consequences" series.
This is part of a series called "Consequences". The first part is called "Consequences of Snooping", which was inspired by a plot bunny by Deb Tanner.
Brian has been acting strange for several weeks. Michael decides to search the loft while Brian is out of town on business to see if he can find any clues to his best friend's recent behavior. What he finds is a copy of Brian's will. And now he wants to know... just who the hell is Justin Taylor and why is Brian leaving him his entire estate?
Consequences - How Brian met Justin tells you how Brian met his husband. After that one shot, I'll start working on a multi-chapter story to wrap this storyline up.
Justin did not go back to Brian after that first night. He goes to live with his cousin in New York.
Justin has a secret and has no idea how to deal with it. This takes place when the loft was robbed and instead of Justin running off to New York with Brian's credit card, he runs off to Ohio to live with his cousin. Who is his cousin?
It's been a year, a year full of pain and sorrow. A year in which nothing meant anything for Brian. After losing Justin at the bombing in Babylon everything was white and black.
However... what will happen if one day suddenly everything changed? What if he had never really met Justin? Then why does he remember everything they had gone through while the rest of the gang doesn't even know who Justin is?
I still can't believe this is my life. Two days ago I was the stud of Liberty Avenue and a successful adman, today... today I am a father. I still recall the words he whispered in my ear that night, as we all sat in Lindsay's hospital room: "You deserve to be loved Brian. Don't let anyone make you think you can't, don't let them win. Show them they are wrong"
I've dedicated all my life to show Saint Joan, Jack and every homophobe out there that underestimating me was a mistake. I became a successful businessman, being the head of the advertising department in Ryder's Advertising. I had the money, the looks, the gang and everyone wanted me... but I was still hallow.
I've proved them all wrong in everything, but one thing. I ended up believing their words, that I was unwanted, that no one will ever love me, that I was not desired, that I should have been aborted.
However, all that changed two days ago. When, I met a fallen angel under a streetlight, no matter how lesbian I sounded, to me that was true. Looking so innocent and pure, he was just asking for me to pick him up. I don't normally go for blonds, but I wanted to be in that world- that world of light- at least for a night.
This is a PB from the lovely Deb Tanner.
Brian wins a month long sea cruise...so Michael decides to move their relationship from PG to Rated R. But things get in Michael's way...
Couldn't do this without my wonderful betas...The Muskababes!
