Story Notes:

I've always wanted to write an AU ending for 5-13. Here it is


Disclaimer: I own nothing.

1. Chapter 1: “Maybe you’d rather just cuddle.” by Frayach [Reviews - 2] half-star (2992 words)

2. Chapter 2: The Bomb by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1126 words)

3. Chapter 3: Assumptions by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (2260 words)

4. Chapter 4: No F'ing Way by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (981 words)

Sorry, folks. This chapter is going to break your hearts. It broke mine. The whole scene this chapter is based on is, for me, the single most heartbreaking scene in the show (with Justin leaving Brian at the end of Season 2 being a close second). Justin just seems so cool, so distant. Here Brian is saying everything he'd ever wanted to hear and Justin can't even be bothered to hug him. The only explanation for his coldness that I can come up with is that Justin had really had it with Brian, that when he'd left, he'd meant it to be for good, that he'd fallen out of love with Brian. Now Brian wants him to pull a 180. Maybe Justin simply can't . . . at least not right away.

5. Chapter 5: Suggle-Wuggle by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1284 words)

I was thinking that, because a lot of you may not have watched season 5 in a long time, I should mention that 98% of the dialogue up through the next chapter between Brian and Justin is canon; after that, it's about 90% canon. All scenes and their accompanying dialogue can be found in episodes 5-11 and 5-13.

6. Chapter 6: Mr. I-Believe-In-Fucking-Not-Love by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1150 words)

Another glimpse of this agonizing scene, this time from Brian's point of view.

7. Chapter 7: "The Prisoner Respectfully Chooses Not To Partake Of His Last Meal..." by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1877 words)

8. Chapter 8: "Let's Do It" by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1537 words)

For the record, I do not share Justin's over-the-top prejudice of West Virginia, which is a lovely state no more populated by hillbillies than many other states (including the one I was born & raised in). Besides, I like hillbillies - as long as they keep their hunting rifles in their trucks. (Just kiddin', folks.)

9. Chapter 9: The Test by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1264 words)

10. Chapter 10: "Wish Me Luck" by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (2472 words)

11. Chapter 11: Deb by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (2794 words)

Okay, so there will be two more chapters after this one - the final one being the AU conversation . . . at last. And maybe, just maybe, a treat thrown in as well . . .

12. Chapter 12: Until You Say 'I do,' You Can Still Say 'I Won't' by Frayach [Reviews - 1] (1515 words)

13. Chapter 13: A Close Call by Frayach [Reviews - 2] (4939 words)

You might need to read this chapter slowly because it's a bit of a temporal leap from the previous chapter, but I wanted to stop torturing you guys (and myself) with all the angst.
