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?
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!
AU after Season 4. The year Justin turns 23, he and Brian get the news that over the next year he's going to gradually lose all of his hearing. The series tracks the next years of their life as they manage their new reality, after-effects of the bashing, their eventual move to New York, and their ever-evolving relationship. Told in first-person chapters from their points of view and some outsiders, with some angst, a lot of hurt/comfort, and loads of humor. Never any big relationship drama, always disability-positive, and no one ever takes themselves too seriously.
What if Justin didn't run off to New York after Brian's loft got burgled? What happens when he decides to face the situation like an adult? Join us on the journey to find out.
Justin and Daphne just wanted to kick the soccer ball around. But this leads to Justin being a star player and meeting the Stud of Liberty Avenue.

This is a plot bunny by Deb Tanner. I hope I can do it justice, as I feel like a duck-out-of-water here. But I love the concept.

AU story. Brian is 21 and Justin is 18, they become roommates in New York with a lot of familiar faces. This story is pretty light-hearted Rated A for lots of cussing and some not very graphic scenes.

Brian is trying to escape his miserable life by visiting the very establishment Justin works in. When Brian decides to end his marriage with his best friend, he chooses to save Justin from the terrible life he has.

Plot Bunny by Deb1
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!
No one had been more shocked than Brian when Melanie, of all people, had suggested that, since she didn't really celebrate Christmas, but J.R. was heading to Pittsburgh to be with her dads, perhaps Brian and Justin would rather come to Toronto to have a more subdued celebration with Lindsay and Gus.
"Lindsay never really gets to enjoy the decorations she puts up, since we're rushing around and then traveling during this time," Mel had explained. "I just thought it would be nice if you and Justin wanted to come to our place instead… You know, let Linds and Gus go all out, and then have a nice quiet holiday at home."
"Quiet" was all Brian needed to hear before he agreed.
Brian and Justin travel to Toronto to spend Christmas with a small part of their chosen family.
Summary: The best night of Justin Taylor and Brian Kinney's life, even if it was ridiculously romantic, was shattered with the crack of a bat. But what will happen to the 'family' when they find out who wielded the bat?
STORY IS NOW COMPLETE. Once again, many thanks to Deb Tanner for the awesome plot bunny.
What happens when you get everything only to find out you’re lost in a world where nothing feels real anymore? Brian and Emmett rise to the top of the music charts, and find out fame wasn't the only thing they wanted. And the lengths they went to for the men they loved, are no longer a secret.
Lorie, you are the best. No matter what I send you help me make it better.
Love ya for it,
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.
A HALF-INSTALLMENT and companion to "Installment One: Clash Forward". Brian and Justin share their plans with a select few of the 'Family'. Between them all they will come up with a set of New Rules that will hopefully make Brian and Justin's transition from Pittsburgh natives to California residents a bit smoother.
As always a special THANK YOU goes to Lorie, who always asks the right questions to push my creativity that much further.
HAPPY READING EVERYONE!
