Bio:

 


Hello everyone.  I am a 73 year old Mother of one girl and Grandmother of two girls, all of them grown adults now.  I've been an ardent and devoted fan of Queer as Folk since the very first airing of Season 1, Episode 1, which I had to watch after seeing the British version shortly before the American version was aired.  And although the British version was truly wonderful, nothing could have prepared me for the magnificent talent of the actors who took on the American version, or the compelling storylines they played out.  Eventually I discovered the world of fanfics after my girls gave me my first computer, and i've never looked back.  I started as an avid reader of QAF fanfiction and was finally convinced by fellow QAFers to try my hand at my own fanfics.  That was more than a decade ago and nothing has given me more pleasure than writing my stories and hearing from readers who seemed to enjoy them.  I've been dormant with my writing for the last few years due to a number of reasons, but I do hope that some of my old work will still find an audience that likes what I've written.  


As for my personal life... I've grown up all over the United States until the age of 19, when I settled in the Dallas, Texas area, where I remained for 48 years.  About 5 years ago I finally made a move with my girls to Pennsylvania, and am now very happily living with my youngest Granddaughter in Lancaster.  Oh yes, I also became a devoted fan of another television series called 'Spartacus'.  There is a loving gay couple called Agron and Nasir that have also inspired me to write fanfics for their characters and you will find one cross-over story involving this couple with Brian and Justin.   Hopefully there will be more stories in my future, but only time will tell.  Thank you for checking me out.

Stories by mandagrammy
Summary:

This story is my entry for a fanfic contest.  The only requirement was that the story include a novel, a phone, a hat, and a bottle of mineral water.  I racked my brain how to come up with a story that included those four items and I couldn't get the beaches of Ibiza off my mind.  Hope you enjoy where my imagination led me.  Basically, the story is simply a fun diversion for our intrepid lovers set after the end of Season Five.  The banner is by my wonderful banner maker, Eka, and I have no beta this time around so please forgive any mistakes.

Summary: Feature

This is a beautifully written story set in 1944, featuring Brian and Justin as gay soldiers in WWII serving in occupied France. One of my favorite stories from this amazing author - Lorie

It is the Winter of 1944 in occupied France. The allies have landed and slowly, so slowly, made their attempt to push to the borders of Germany. Sergeant Brian Kinney is too busy trying to keep his men alive and do his duty to worry about anything else, much less a personal life. Everything changes one day when one of his men, recently killed in an ambush, is replaced with a raw new recruit, Private Justin Taylor. The kid looks like he's barely out of High School and totally wet behind the ears. The Sarge is not happy, especially when without warning Sergeant Kinney finds himself fighting a different kind of war than the one on the battlefield.

I am dedicating this story to my late father who served bravely and honorably in WWII and the Vietnam War. I am also dedicating this story to all the GLBT men and women who also served with honor, but in silence throughout history. Many thanks go to the amazing Eka for her brilliant banner and to my friend Pat for her beta skills.

Summary:

This is the sequel to Double Trouble and it will help you to understand the characters and their motivations if you've read DT first. Hopefully this one will stand up well on its own. This story picks up four years after DT ends. This time it is Gus and boyfriend Jason who are graduating from college and their sisters who are graduating from high school. The story will look back on the previous four years and then move on to their new lives together. Brian and Justin, still happily married, look with pride on the kids they helped move into adulthood together. I hope you will enjoy this continuation of their saga and remember that I welcome all comments. Many thanks to the genius work of Eka for the banner and my friend Pat for the beta work. Enjoy!

The story is set a dozen years after that final heart-wrenching scene, when the couple parted so that Justin could move to New York City. Eventually Brian joined him, and they both thrived in their careers. Unfortunately Brian's success has slowly caused an imperceptible wedge between them with his constant absences for work. Brian, fearing that their relationship is faltering, has decided to show Justin just how important he is to him by planning a Valentine's Day vacation he will never forget.

This story is dedicated to both Judy and Anita who suggested to me that the lyrics from this song would fit perfectly in a B/J story.  I agree and I hope you will enjoy it too.  The setting is right after Brian proposes to Justin and is turned down.  This is a What if? story so I've changed Brian's response to the rejection.  I want to acknowledge the wonderful lyrics of the song which belong entirely to the lyricist Jerry Herman.  I also want to thank my dear friend, Pat for her beta skills and my Granddaughter, Amy for the breathtaking banner.
