I'm a QAF fanatic and make sure to watch my favourite eps once a week.  I have only been writing since September 2016 and find that I have to get at least one chapter done a day!  

With regards to my writing, there will always be the following constants:

Brian and Justin will always be together, though past tricks may come back to into their lives

Anti-Michael and ant-Lindsay...with their behaviour leading to break up of his, and maybe, her relationship with their partners, which leads me to...

Ben and Mel's characters written with more backbone and more insight respectively to their partners behaviour than in the series...

Although I will write them in an unlikeable way from time to tiime as well as other characters, but not as much as Michael and Lindsay.

Strong original female character 

Foodcentric...am also a food whore!

Furballs...I absolutely love cats and dogs so one or both will feature.

And as I live in London some of my words/phrases will be different to the American English but will try and catch as many as I can.

I hope you enjoy the stories I write and know I will enjoy the stories I read

THE LION AND THE STUD by Nichelle Wellesly

Rated: M • 124 Reviews star




Wants versus Needs.... That's what Justin Taylor's life has come down to. Having traveled the world as a dancer, Justin now faces the choice between continuing his lucrative career or rebuilding the tumultuous life he'd left behind in Pittsburgh. Enter Brian Kinney with an offer he may not want to refuse.

Happy dance for new chapter!  And ice cold shower for their first time...let me have you = swoonsome!

So how is Lindsey going to play this one out...surely she's not going to align herself with the odious Taylors to get rid of Justin right?  And Michael has been scarily quiet...exits stage left repeatedly hitting most recent tab


Author's Response:

Oh trust me, Michael is NOT far away. in fact he will be in the next chapter (BOOOooooo!! LOL). Lindsay has a lot of 'splaining to do when the sonogram results come back. In the meantime, I wouldn't put anything past her. 

So glad that you enjoyed Justin's 'First Time!' 

Happy Reading and HUGS,

Brian Kinney needs a last minute date to join him at a client’s wedding, so he grabs the first available guy he sees - a naive, sheltered, and unsophisticated blond boy that he saves from a mental hospital. A boy who’s got a very unusual past. This is the story of their adventure together. Oh, and Justin doesn’t like wearing shoes for some reason . . .

New York State of Mind by addict_writer

Justin moves to New York. He runs into an old acquaintance of Brian's, who is going to play a big role in their relationship, testing its strength. It's one of the most emotional stories I've written so far.

Well dang!  Ooh cannot wait to read the next instalment.  Seriously where do the idiot twins get off...oh that's right in their imagination because they are not in the real world where Brian would touch them with someone else's...you get me

Author's Response: Oh, I get you Darling! They've always lived an their own fantasy worlds, dreaming of being Mrs. Brian Kinney. What a nightmare for Brian, no wonder he ran away as fast as he could, drinking, drugging and chasing ass... Later Hon ~ Kathleen

This is one of few stories that when new chapter is posted I start from the beginning it is that good! I actually fist pump and get comfy!

Now WTAF was Michael playing at with the wig and ting!  No just no, had to resist the temptation to bleach eyeballs and rinse iPad!

Looking forward to the next one xx

Author's Response: Wow! Thank you so much, I'm so glad you're enjoying my fic. I know I may have gone too far with Michael, but he deserved it... Later Darling ~ Kathleen
