Story Notes:

 

 

 

You all know the drill... I don't own our guys but I love to mess with their lives. No copyright infringement is intended!

FAIR WARNING: Some parts of this will be dark or traumatic for some readers. I will most certainly try to remember before posting to issue a warning. I don't intend to stray that far away from the character development, meaning I will NOT write Justin as some"weak little faggot." Sure, he will go through some mood swings based on the situations he will face in this fic, but he never struck me as 'weak,' overly-vulnerable or one to buy into the stereotypes placed on gay men in general. I find that particularly distasteful and I won't allow the characters I write to be portayed that way- effeminate or not. He may scream, shout, cry, holler, curse, rant and rave-- might even want encouragement and reassurance from time to time (same as any of us) but he's not needy. He's a strong character who I will enjoy focusing a great deal of time and energy on this time around; a character generally able to rise above any and all challenges with a little help from those he loves and considers family. That said, Brian will be Brian as will the rest of the characters while they deal with the aftermaths of the situations displayed here. 

I really do hope that you all enjoy this reverb of Seasons 1 & 2 with a twist (or okay maybe 5...lol). Happy Reading!

So.... here's a new chapter to be immeditely followed by the FIRST in the Side Bar. I decided to post all of it within the same story rather than have a separate fic to keep up with. Lord know, I have so many already!! So basically, although the sidebar will display as if it's chapter 10, it isn't. VERY VERY special THANK YOU to Lorie who helped me out tremendously with the Toppy Justin scene! As you all can tell, this is truly an ambitious work and without the help of Lorie and the members of the LLLC, I don't know that I would have the confidence to embark on this journey! Thanks Gals!! Enjoy Everyone!!
