Bio:

I'm a REALLY late comer to the QAF world - I didn't have cable back when the show was on.  I only recently discovered it (Nov. 2011) when I came across it on DVD at my local public library.  I instantly fell in love - this has to be one of the greatest love stories ever told and I can't get enough.  I never was a fan fic reader, writer or anything prior to QAF.  Now, I'm pretty much obsessed.


Hope you all enjoy my stories!  I know that I've enjoyed writing them more than I ever thought I would.  TAG

“Fanfiction is what literature might look like if it were reinvented from scratch after a nuclear apocalypse by a band of brilliant pop-culture junkies trapped in a sealed bunker. They don't do it for money. That's not what it's about. The writers write it and put it up online just for the satisfaction. They're fans, but they're not silent, couchbound consumers of media. The culture talks to them, and they talk back to the culture in its own language.”  Lev Grossman

5/21/15 - Three years in now and I've posted twenty stories - 18 are complete and two are long-term WIPs - for a total of more than 1.25 million words. I've hosted two writing challenges, helped out a couple new writers by doing some beta work and hosted an internationally attended online QAF marathon. In the last year I also wrote my first original story, which is a major accomplishment I never dreamed I'd complete. I'd never have done any of that without the inspiration of QAF. Fanfic really CAN change lives! TAG

5/21/16 - It's the fourth anniversary of my posting my first fanfic story! I'm up to twenty-four stories for a grand total of over 1.75 Million words of fiction! Wow! Thank you to all my readers, my fellow writers and my wonderful friends in this fandom for keeping me motivated and writing.
~**~**~**~
5/21/17 - WOW! Five years writing QAF fanfic - can you believe it? And in that time I’ve completed 36 stories totalling just short of 2.5 million words of fiction. On top of all that, I’ve helped estable Kinnetik Dreams and have make scores of wonderful friends. Thank you to this wonderful fandom for enabling all that. I love you all!
~**~**~**~
5/21/18 - I can’t believe I’ve only been writing QAF fanfic for SIX years. I’m so connected to this fandom now that it feels like a part of my life. I’m super proud of my work over this past year. Along with my co-author, SunshineSally, I actually got one of my stories published! Add to that that my works total 43 stories and over 3,000,000 words of fiction. And I owe it all to this wonderful show, Queer As Folk, that inspired me.
~**~**~**~**~
5/21/19 - On the 7th Anniversary of posting my first story, I find myself still enjoying this fanfic stuff as much as ever. As of today I've written over 3.4 million words of fidction, including 51 stories and self-published my first book. Wow! Hopefully, by the end of this year, my second book will be published too. Who knows what will come next. Thanks for joing me on this amazing journey.
~**~**~**~**~
5/21/20 - It’s the 8th Anniversary of my first posted story. Unfortunately, this year is different for so many reasons. I wasn’t able to write as much this past year because I was trying to sort out my personal and professional life. I didn’t even attempt NaNoWriMo. But then COVID19 came and wrecked all my plans anyway so... Still, I added 3 more novel-length stories to my name, including one I’m shopping around to get published and another that’s semi-autobiographical and almost killed me to write. My total is more than 3.7 million words & 55 stories. And I’m still here!

Summary:

received_10208985832465038.jpeg

This is Brian's journey roughly two years after the end of the series. He and Justin have been living in New York City where he has just opened a new branch for Kinnetik. He knows he is going to have to make some major changes in is life and deal with a past that has haunted and shaped the man he knows he is. He is finally ready to face his demons and become the man he wants to be.

This story has many of the old gang we love and lots of new characters too.

Please be warned: There are scenes of violence, drama, angst, mental illness, drug use, non-consent, rape, Brian and Justin with other characters, addiction, discussion of Brian and Lindsay's past, Brian and Cynthia's past, hetero sex, Brian in a brief sexual interlude with a woman for non sexual reasons.

If any of this is a trigger for you, please don't read. If you like your QAF to be strictly canon, this is not for you.

So, I'd started this before, but got too distracted. Now, I've started again, taking the time to read The Review first. It already promises to be majorly angsty. And very intriguing too - Brian's mysterious nightmares, him apparently pushing Justin away again, and now a request to Lindz for another kid. That's a heck of a lot for one story. Can't wait to see where you take it. Off to read more. TAG



Author's Response:

I understand distraction. I hope he smelled really good. LOL

Yeah, very, very, angsty. Hopefully you will stay intrigued, otherwise you will stop reading. Brian is pretty messed up. He was in the series and I can on,y imagine that his neurosis would continue unchecked after it ended. Lots and Lots of different stuff going on. Some will be relevent and some won't. I leave it to the reader to interpret it how they wish.

Enjoy,

Saje

Love the simple, no-mess wedding. That's perfect for Brian. Of course, Jennifer's gonna be pissed that she missed it. Now, since you managed to get me hooked, go write me the next chapter already! TAG

Working on it as we speak, along with MT.  Glad you enjoyed yourself.

Good thing for those Anti-Michael and Anti-Lindz tags! Lol. What a pair . . . TAG

LOL! Between this one and The Anti-Couple, they are at their worst...well so far!! Maybe I should give them the monikers of Mischief and Mayhem, LOL Stay Tuned!!

First of all, since when is a 6k word chapter considered short? Lol. Nice confrontation with Craig. Now, what's up with Molly? Hmmm. TAG



Author's Response: LOL! I should have said 'Short for me' in reference to the 6K chapter... Jeeze I'm still surprised by the word count! Molly will be making an appearance very soon. Happy Reading and HUGS, ~Nichelle

Date: May 10, 2016 Title: Chapter 1: ~Part I: LIONS AMONG MERE MORTALS~

Excellent start with a very intriguing story premise. Although, at 17k words it's more like a start and a half! ;)  Very excited to see more of these characters. I like the slightly softer, but still-Briany, Brian and the bolder Justin. Moving on to chapter 2. TAG



Author's Response:

Hey Tag!!! I'm so freaking excited that you are reading this, too!! I love writing Brian and Justin in many different ways. They were such multi-faceted characters that each story brings out something new, whether it's AU or Canon-esque. I can't thank you, and everyone else, for their constant and nurturing support of my work.

Happy Reading Writing and HUGS,

~Chelle

Putting on my lawyer hat here - that contract provision in Brandon's contract is unenforceable as to Justin since he never agreed to it. Also, the damages Gary is asking for are outrageous and no judge would even listen to that claim. Justin's a fool to pay that amount without letting his lawyer work on the matter. Now, taking off the lawyer hat . . . No, Justin, don't give up your dreams for that jerk! Lol. TAG
