Have I said I love you lately? I love all your stories but this one made me do a happy dance. I hope Lindsay has twins, but has to go on Maury to figure out who is baby daddy. Leda needs to show Mel what a real woman will do for her.

 

Love this story.

Author's Response:

I LOVE YOU TOOO!!!!! OMG! You're stories are keeping me addicted in ways that you cannot possibly imagine! LOL I love your take on what should happen to Lindsay. I think everyone is going to be surprised with the paternity results. To me, Leda and Mel were much better suited than Lindsay and Melanie. Melanie never seemed to have to pretend with Leda. Granted their dynamic was short-lived on the show but that was the vibe I got while watching them. That said, they really are good together but Mel's got an uphill battle and some healing to do before she can even think about another relationship.

Happy Reading (and writing! Girl you are just moving through those stories!!! I LOVE it) and HUGS,

I love that Mel, Ted and Emmett aren't trying to be nice. Michael and Lindsay should marry each other so they can stalk Brian together. This is going to be good.

Summary: Past Featured Story

 

338960_1115469.jpg

Justin has been back from New York for a week and in that time the "family" just wouldn't leave him and Brian alone to enjoy their reunion. There have been countless calls demanding Brian produce Sunshine, unannounced visits and several walk-ins performed by Michael, of course.

On one such evening, as Brian and Justin are in the middle of foreplay, Michael barges in and without regard to what he interrupted demands that they join him and the guys for a night out at Woody's. When Emmett suggests a "couple's pool game," Brian and Justin have to decide if the stakes are too high -- Freedom from Family vs. Learning to Share. Who will win the Tawdry Tournament?

Well you don't need to be sad reading this, Daphne lives through this story. She doesn't die until several years after this story.

I love this story. When Justin talk to Deb in chapter 1, I cheered. This is one of my favorites.



Author's Response:

I'm so glad you cheered! I sometimes love/sometimes hate Deb. Depends on the day or the weather or what shoes I'm wearing that day, I think. LOL 

I do think Deb needs a real dose of reality when it comes to Michael, though, no matter what day of the week it is.

Great interview. I love Paper Boats on the Hudson. It’s one of my favorites by NoChaser.

Thank you! Paper Boats was disappointing for some because it didn't wind up with the guys fully together - just hopeful that they might be someday. But it was what I needed to write at the time. Glad you loe that one.

This little drabble was in answer to a challenge by charming1 to write a short fic with no words passing between our boys… I hope I have done it justice. It is also inspired by episode 215’s morning after scene where Brian and Justin were engaging in a little fork porn (kinky silverware though? Lol) Anyway, I hope you enjoy.

Great job. It was a different way to look at that scene. 



Author's Response:

Thanks a million, Star. I always thought that a wealth of conversation happened within that scene no matter how short-lived it was. I think if everyone would have returned to their regularly-scheduled Gossip and had a healthy dose of MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, Brian and Justin would have come to this exact conclusion. Glad that you enjoyed it!!

Trust me you can't get to graphic. I wanted to tell you that I really like your story and that you were willing to share it. I'm probably the worst about reading and not reviewing, which I'm trying to correct.  I love how Michael never seems to get a clue, and expects everyone to let him slide, but gets caught anyway. I hate that he is awful to Hunter but you were able to show Ben as a strong loving parent, which is just wonderful. I tend to stuggle with Ben, but you let go and showed us why he was the best person for Hunter.

Thank you for taking your time to write.

Star



Author's Response:

Thank you Star!

I absolutely love your fics so this means so much coming from one of my fave writers. 

Michael always bugged me in the series, he always got away with stuff.  Ben has always been there for Hunter and after the scene at Debbie's he's taking a leaf out of Michael book and putting himself and Hunter first.

Thanks again

Mikey’s in trouble,  I love it. It was something else that always puzzles me, why was Michael in charge of the comic? Maybe I'll think of a reason. Can't wait for more.



Author's Response:

Hey Star!!! I'm so happy that you are enjoying my insanity while taking a small break from your own.  Justin initially let Michael have charge of the comic because of two reasons: 1. It was Michael's dream and 2. Justin was working and going to school full-time. The problem with that is he trusted Michael to do the right thing by him knowing that he had expenses of his own. To Michael's mind, Justin has Brian so there's no need for him to have anything beyond what Michael chooses to give him. I think Michael tends to forget just how intelligent Justin really is despite his age. That lapse in memory will be a very costly mistake.

Happy Reading and Writing (Girl, I LOVING TSOOL so MUCH!!),
