Bio:

I stumbled across Queer as Folk in June of 2015 and - no surprise! - was immediately hooked on the show.


Through the QaF fandom, I discovered my dear half-brain (Alois) and my Synergy Sister (Brynn_Jones). We've betaed for each other and have also co-authored stories.


I don't have my own website, but besides Kinnetik Dreams, I post on AO3: https://archiveofourown.org/users/eureka1/works

Post 5.13. Justin and Brian are together in Pittsburgh. Daphne asks the boys for their assistance with a recent acquaintance.

Based on a recent real-life encounter this author had with Mormon missionaries.

This is a very porny story, including a voyeuristic Daphne, so be forewarned if that doesn’t appeal to you! There's also loads of humor, including a wee bit of crack. ;)

What were the Lusty Ladies to do when Saje requested a prequel to her miniseries, ‘Diaries of a Flaming Queen’, for her birthday? Madly scramble to write a porny tale, of course. Here’s what we came up with when Emmett Honeycutt requested a topping lesson from Brian Kinney.

 

Hugs & kisses with whipped cream on top, Saje... Sorry, you’ll have to get your spanking elsewhere.
