QaF devotee and avid fanfiction reader. I'm an old broad who came late to the table where fanfiction was concerned. I didn't even know it existed until about five years ago. When I found it, a whole new world was laid out before me!
The creativity and ingenuity of the writers I discovered inspired my own creative juices and I began posting my first fanfiction story, Alterations, in April of 2012. It's been a marvelous exploration of my own psyche, pulling out my own fears and foibles and foisting them upon my characters. For myself, at least, the best fiction often comes from the most painful of realities.
Hopefully, a self-explanatory little drabblette. Poor Ethan.
Who would you be if you had no memory of who you were?
Begins during the Rage launch party in 220. Much of Brian may seem out of character here, because... well... who is Brian, really?
NOTE: Please remember that literary license is being taken with the factual aspect of the medical diagnosis of amnesia here. Although Transient Global Amnesia is a factual diagnosis, it is usually of very short duration, and quite rare, no matter what television and stories try to make of it. My interpretation, since this is fiction, is a bit longer than medically factual.
I own only the fedora. Everything else belongs to CowLip, et al.
Sometimes forgiveness comes at a high price.
What kind of friends would grownup Justin have? A little Sam Auerbach story.
In my head this would be set around 2010. Justin would be about 27 and Sam would be in his late 50s.
On the night of Brian's proposal at the country manor, Justin learns a surprising truth. Exactly why did Brian change so dramatically after the bombing? Something very strange, and cracky, this way comes, folks. Not really an ounce of angst in sight. Leans heavily on "Britin" dialogue from the show, with a twist.
This is dedicated to Tagsit, since her new story Earth Boys are Easy got this weird little bunny - which was cranked out in a couple of hours! eek - running around in my head.
If Brian and Michael had done the deed, and Justin and Ben had balls of steel. How might it have gone?
A little humor, a little angst, and a touch of Jesus.
Another kind-of-a-snippet-definitely-a-morality-tale one-off, while I'm finishing up a longer work.
Deb overhears. Deb blabs. Sunshine goes Super Nova.
Let's pretend Brian was more open with Justin about the cancer and the Divina Devore arc never happened. Screwing with the timeline a bit.
Ted Schmidt, up and coming Adult Entertainment mogul, decides to launch a new website, this one one targeted to reach the fastest growing segment of the gay porn market - straight women. Ted hires Daphne Chanders, a hot young amateur porn writer, to help him write and produce the porn shorts he wants to make for this site. Daphne convinces her friend, Justin, to join the project as one of the actors. Ted offers a similar job to his friend, Brian. While they're all engaged in making delightfully porny movielets for their eager and fanatic female audience, will the two stars slowly begin to fall in love for real?

SUMMARY: It's hard coming to grips with the loss of someone you love. It's harder still when you feel a weight of guilt for their death. And sometimes it's just the bigger picture you're afraid of facing.
Follow-up to "The Very Last Thing". Read that one first or this will make no sense. Both are very short. Do not be afraid of this because of the MCD tag. I promise it won't hurt. Much.
Justin doesn't survive the bashing. One version of what might have happened.
A little angst, a little fluff, and lots of Christmas love. Gus style.
Brian and Justin are trying to help me out with a bit of a problem - in their own unique way.
Brian hoped there was just one more miracle left.
He knew Brian would never give him picnics in the park or bouquets of flowers or heartfelt professions of love. Until the day Brian did all that. Well... kind of.
A ‘what-if' of a sort. I recently re-read ‘Decision/Reaction', an AIDS/HIV one-shot by Simon. This ficlet is set as an interlude in Simon's ‘Decision/Reaction' ‘verse. (Link to Simon's story is in the Story Notes.)
This would be set around 2010. Brian would be around 38 and Justin would be around 26.
A drabble from Brian's POV set during the Ethan arc.
All they could do was give each other the very last thing they needed.
MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH. Future Fic.
How does Brian get to a point where he can actually say the words to Justin? Was it all just shock? An odd little gap-filler for 510.
SUMMARY: Not a damned thing turned out the way they expected. But it was a great life.
Sometimes things just don't measure up. Then again, some times they do.
AU: In a (not quite) parallel reality far, far away...
A little paranormal help for the boys over the holidays.

This should have been posted before Christmas, but I was distracted by real life angst and lingering election depression. ::Sigh::
