Bio:

While I'm new to the QAF universe, I'm really enjoying all the different story lines I have found here and on other sites.


I watched the show when it first aired and then forgot all about it until Showtime replayed it last month. I have since gotten my own DVD set  (have to have the original music:)


I spent many years running a site devoted to fanficton in the Star Wars universe. I loved working with the authors and loved site design, but real life threw a few hurdles and I had to walk away. Now that I have some time and a new passion, I can wait to surround myself with all these unread stories

Making_Memories_Banner.png

Ad Man Brian Kinney becomes enamored of a young blond twink he meets at the youth’s Prom.  When tragedy strikes the young man and Kinney tries to help, a series of misunderstandings, accompanied by the betrayal of a parent, lead to Kinney becoming responsible for the boy’s well being.  Is Brian man enough to tell the young man he cares so much about, of his unintentional deceit, knowing that it might drive the boy away for good?

That's just sooo sweet 

Summary: Feature

Did you ever wish you could go back in time and change just one thing you’d done - just one - thinking that you could change your whole life for the better? Well, Brian Kinney did. He was sure that all his problems stemmed from that first time he broke his first rule about sex - never let a trick stay the whole night. If he had never let Justin Taylor insinuate himself into his life, he would still be the top Stud of Liberty Avenue, free from the heartache and headaches of a relationship, with his friendships and family intact. At least that was what Brian was thinking the night after Justin left him and went to live with the stepford fags, Michael & Ben. But, every action has some direct or indirect consequence and Brian may not necessarily like the results that he gets when he wishes he could go back in time and change his life. This story begins after Episode 5.07 but flashes back to episode 1.02 & 1.03.

Lol. This is getting nuts. 

Im enjoying watching Brain lose his mind 



Author's Response:

It does get crazy, huh? This story was basically just a way of torturing Brian day in and day out. Glad you’re enjoying it! Lol. TAG

I'm confused. How did Brian reset? (Die) 



Author's Response:

In that instance, Brian just passed out with relief and got his reset that way. It was one of the least painful ways I managed to torture him in this story. LOL. TAG

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.

So I stuck it out. I was really unhappy that Brian cheated, but Justin was right.. it has always been Brian's nature to not deny himself. At the same time, it made Brian finally finish growing up. 

I felt the story was IC for everyone   

 

Going to check out the companion stories  

 

thanks for seeing it through I really enjoyed this story :)

 

a fan, 

Deborah

Justin can feel only one thing being back together with Brian -- happiness. Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.

Finally, Jen's life is explored. ( Justin got it from somewhere 😏) Glad to see her enjoying her younger lover too

want to thank you for the education. Looked up some of this myself. Very educational. And HOT! 

Wish that someone would add to it. But maybe they are a bit nervous to try and up the bar on such an exotic beginning. 



Author's Response:

Thank you for your review!

Chelle and I were particularly intrigued by a relationship between Brian and Jen that seemed natural and non-threatening.

We also liked the fact that Justin had to get his inner sex demon from somewhere...

Yeah, the research was INTENSE, to say the least.

We have wished for someone to pick this up too, but in the event that they don't, we have a few ideas that we may toss in when we've caught up with our individual projects.

Thank you for the lovely compliments and happy reading,

Nichelle and Saje

Summary:

Fiery Nights Banner S&T.jpg

Brian Kinney has rented a summer house on Fire Island for his first vacation in years. His plan is to spend the summer experiencing all the various delights - and men - this Gay Mecca has to offer. His first night there, though, he’s confronted by a hot little blond townie with an agenda who refuses to accept Brian’s rule that he doesn’t do repeats. The two men make a bet - If Justin can keep Brian amused and entertained all summer, then Brian will give him a job come fall. Little did Brian know just how determined and inventive Justin really was.

*****STORY IS NOW COMPLETE - ENJOY!*****

Best play list ever!!!

Summary:

   

SUMMARY:  That damned Showtime channel and their time limits. Due to circumstances beyond their control (I'm sure), Cowlip et al were exceedingly surprised when the finale of QaF was cut short by a few minutes. It changed everything and, boy, were they pissed. But... what were a couple of rich, influential producers of a successful ground breaking hit show to do? Apparently, nothing. The milk had been spilled, the cart overturned, the bridge burned... But, here is how the ending was ACTUALLY filmed. (I swear, this is true. I heard it from a friend who has a cousin who works with this guy who dated a celluloid vault-keeper's sister...)

Really great description of Justin. 

Summary:

 

Set two years after 513. Melanie, Lindsay and the kids are still in Canada. Justin has returned after a year in New York and now lives at Britin with Brian. 'Rage' has broken the 'barriers' and is now popular in the mainstream comic book world. Michael and Justin have been asked to appear on a talk show (think Graham Norton) to discuss their comic book. Brian and Ben as well as Ted and Blake, and Emmett and Drew tag along with front row seats in the audience.

I love the Graham Norton show. Watch it on the BBC all the time. 

Finally Michael is shown that he really doesn’t know Brian and maybe he will finally give up his selfish dream 

fun story. Really loved the game 



Author's Response:

Thank you! I really love Graham Norton, too. He was the only talk show host I thought of when I decided to write this.  I watch his show whenever I get the chance.  I did my best to be nice to Michael in this fic which is why I had him sort of redeem himself at the end. But you never can tell with Michael! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for the review!
