I don't write at all but I read a lot. So, I'm more than happy to have a new site where I hope I can find new wonderful stories or old ones about B&J.

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.

I haven't commented your story yet and I'm sorry for that (I know, sorry's BS...).

Anyway, I loved this and I don't know if I'm going to be able to go to bed (the night is there in Europe).

I'm so into this.

It's very detailed, well written, captivating, ...

Thank you for this amazing trip.



Author's Response:

No need to apologize. We all have lives outside of fiction, though some of us wish otherwise.

You probably will not be able to go to bed. The angst starts right away, and I have been told it is addictive.

Your compliments are making me blush. ( don't stop)

Thank you for giving me part off your day by reading and reviewing.

You are very welcome.

What a cliffhanger!!!



Author's Response:

I was wondering when you would start this SNO. Good to see you on board for the ride.

Fortunately, Jennifer is there with the POA.

Not everyone will be happy about it though.

I love Emmett; fun, strong, queer in all his glory, resourceful and most of loyal.



Author's Response:

Emmett gets a much bigger part with me than he usually gets in most Fics. I really think he was an under utilized character in the series.

You have talent to describe Brian so tortured. It's almost painful.



Author's Response:

Thank you for the compliment. I don't like to do it, but it needed to be done. If you thought it was painful to read, you may want to stop now. It really does not get better for a while.

I thought the pressure would go down but I was wong.



Author's Response:

Nope, you have a little ways more to go for some relief.

Hang in there, it will get better.

Actually, some tags let me think that it would be hard to read for some parts, so, I didn't want to start; then, I read "The Review" and some of your comments on other writers' stories, and other writers' comments on this one.

"The Review" got me hook; that was the goal of it I guess. Job well done!!!

You are really talented from my POV.

Thank you for that.



Author's Response:

Some people had a problem with the abuse and others had problems with chapter 17. I just remind myself I write for me and anyone else that tags along with me is a bonus.

The goal of the "The Review" was simply to show first time writers that you can take something fairly small, give it water and fertilizer, and it can grow into something big and beautiful. (plus, it would not leave me alone)

Thank you for the compliment. I think I am a so-so writer, because I have a love-hate relationship with adjectives, and I like my stories to be dialogue driven.

But thank you.

And you are very welcome.

Jennifer on Brian nakedness: was fun to watch and also fun to read her feelings about that. And Justin's reaction too...



Author's Response:

I thought her rationale was funny too. We know from the series she has an apreciation for fine art, so I could easily see her using that rationale.

"Don't call me Honeycutt." I love how Brian is teasing Emmett with calling him by his last name.



Author's Response:

i think he does it at this point, because Emmett is the only one he knows he can piss off, but not offend. Does that make sense?

Who is SHE? Dammit? The "shrink"?



Author's Response:

That would be putting it mildly.

Brian welcoming the shrink: what a scene it must have been.



Author's Response:

I could not resist....it just seemed apropos.

I hope Justin is going to rule the world once more with Rage.com.

I love the banter between Lady Jane and Sir Brian. Some light before the heavy that I suppose is to come.



Author's Response:

Yes and....YES.

Reviewer: The SNO Signed

Yes, it does.

Thank you.

I loved:

"the dog doing his thing"

"Unbidden was the thought; kind of acts like Justin after a good fucking."

"Yep, eats like Justin too"

So funny...!



Author's Response:

IKR? I had that rolling in my head while I was trying to sleep one night months ago. That part was written long before the previous three chapters.

I had a hard time not laughing while I was writing it.

If it wasn't Brian, I would have found this hot, but it's weird.

Maybe he's just dreaming...

Anyway, I'm in with you so I'll continue the captivating story.



Author's Response:

I get it and won't hold it against you.

No, he is not dreaming. LOL

Hopefully you will feel a little better about it after the next chapter.

Thank you for the compliment.

I hope Justin won't do anything stupid and that nobody will found out what he discovered.



Author's Response:

Justin tends to be a bit rash and hotheaded. We will see if it has any ramifications this time.

Cold shower please... That was super hot!

I'll hang in there also it feels a little weird.



Author's Response:

yep, I don't want any readers to get too complacent.

Reviewer: The SNO Signed

A little calm before the next storm?



Author's Response:

You got it. You are obviously on to me....LOL

I loved "Is this real? Like, really real?" Did I just get married? At a kitchen table? With Brian barefoot, in jeans? Me in cargoes and a hoodie?

Ahhhhh Brian barefoot... What a joy! In fact, everything bare was a joy with him. Don't get me started on his hands... Too bad Gale's tattoo was almost always hidden. It fitted Brian well IMHO.

----

But the end is quite stressful. I'm worried for Gus.

So, is this the end for now? How long will we have to beg you to feed our poor hungry minds?



Author's Response:

I hear ya! I have a not so silent love affair with his hands too.

No, this is not the end. I have the next three chapters written but the middle of chapter 23 feels wonky to me, so I am letting it ferment for a while.

I don't like to force my writing, so when it hits me, you will get the next two fairly close together.

Don't worry about Gus or Jenny, Daddy Brian is my second favorite incarnation of the character, though this is not really a story about Brian's quest for another kid.

He is too fucked up right now for that.

Yeah!!! I wrote the 69th review without realizing it.

Somebody had to, so very glad it was you!

I love this story; so glad you posted a new chapter!!!

I loved "The look of an angel with the lust of a devil"; so very true.

I loved the way Brian defended Justin attacked by his father and the way Justin clashed Lindsay.

This is teasing our appetite for more...



Author's Response:

Hey Claire,

First, THANK YOU, for coming over to the new site to read the continuation of this and my other stories. Your support means more to me than you will ever know!

Now for your review: I've always felt that Brian and Justin were kindred souls and that their personalities complimented each other. I try to show that in everything that I write. They are both fierce protectors in their own rights. Whereas Brian can be physical at times, Justin can be just as effective with scathing remarks. They are both also too intelligent for the other one to fool easily. I LOVE writing them! It will be interesting to see what other developments happen throughout 'the week' LOL *evil grinning and rubbing hands*


Happy Reading and HUGS,

~Nichelle

Feisty! Like her brother; good to read this new development. The plot is thicking.

Reviewer: The SNO Signed
Date: Jun 14, 2016 Title: Chapter 4: ~Part IV: MIDDLE GROUND~

Interesting plots coming right up on many fronts. Molly seems to share some great interest in tall man's midsections with her brother... It reminds me of the visit to the shrink/psychologist in S1 and Justin talking about dicks... The look of Jennifer and the doc! Too much fun.
