Summary:

Gus and Fiona became best friends at five, in Ireland. They stayed friends on Hawkin's Island. And then spent adolescence on opposite sides of the ocean. Now they are back together for senior year. Gus moves to Ireland to live with his mother. At first Gus is enjoying his time.  Lindsay's new husband is a great guy and Gus enjoys getting closer to his mother.

 

Gus is excited about meeting new people and making new friends but he soon realized that something odd was going on. Fiona's boyfriend, Rowen, acts like he wants to be friends but there is always a negative undercurrent Gus can't quite figure out. Maybe he just didn't like seeing Fi with another guy. He soon realizes that Rowen is not trying to be his friend. Far from it.

 

Gus is in love with Fiona, and Rowen Brennan is going to do his best to make sure he doesn't get her.

Summary:

 

The Taylor-Kinney clan never has a dull moment. They have a new place to live and some new friends to explore life with. Follow their adventures, the ups and downs, the dangers and the pleasures, and see their love grow the land and each other.

It was time to leave Hawkin's Island. Terry and Brian had business opportunities in Colorado and Griff and Justin agreed it would be a good move for their careers as well. They all agreed that it would be a good move for their children as well. There was a better school system there and more opportunities for them to explore more of what the world had to offer.  

The children adapted quickly from island life to the Spirit Pass Ranch. They enjoyed the nature around them and the wide open space. Being able to have horses and a variety of mini animals just enriched everyone's lives. 

Shortly after arriving, Justin was selected to create a major commission for the Colorado Natural History Museum. Along with Griff, and later a new friend, they create a masterpiece. 

This family always works hard but loves harder.

Summary:

 

Brian and Justin have moved the family to Atlanta for the summer. Justin planned to focus on his art students and his own work. J.Jay, his assistant, would be helping him at the gallery and with the other young artists that would come and go throughout the summer.

Brian had a couple leads for new clients he planned on working on this summer but his main plan was to spend as much time with his kids as he could. He especially wanted to spend time with Gus. Since Lindsay had come back to the states, Brian felt like he was missing out on so much more and Gus was growing up so fast. Henry had come along to take care of the kids. A housekeeper had been hired to do some of the cooking and to clean while they were there. It was the perfect home away from home for the Taylor-Kinney clan.

Kevin had started the Center years earlier and now had bigger plans for Legacy Atlanta. Tom Butterfield had been running the place since Kevin had moved to Pittsburgh. His wife, Natalia, had been working with Brandy and Sally, Kevin's adopted daughters, and he couldn't wait to meet his newest granddaughter, Kelin Cae, who had been named after him. They planned to open a new, expanded Center that would be able to help more struggling, young adults.

Another benefit to the trip was to get away from Craig Taylor. If it was the last thing they did, they were keeping full custody of Aaron. Craig may have donated sperm, but that was his only contribution. He was still on parole, so he wasn't allowed to leave the state... or was he?

Summary:

 

Brian Kinney and Justin Taylor had been married for two years. They lived in Britin with six year old Gus, eighteen month old Aaron, and six month old Jessi. Extended friends and family lived with them, helping with the children and the compound. Gus' mother had just returned to the states and was rebuilding her relationships after a year's absence.  

Their friends, James and Emmett, lived in another house on the property. James was in charge of security and managed the property. James' mother, Ronni and her husband, Dante, lived on the third house on their property. Ronni managed the house staff, but in the next six weeks she would be giving birth to her first grandchild for James and Emmett. She hadn't realized how much harder it would be to have a child at her age, but it would be worth it when she held her son's baby in her arms.

Brian's father, Kevin, would be moving out very soon. He was moving into Brian's childhood home. He also was going to open a new shelter. With Brian's help, Kevin, along with friends, were opening Legacy Center. It would be an escape for teens that had been thrown out or mistreated because of their sexuality. Kevin had run a similar place in Atlanta but he left that in the care of friends. Tom and Natalia, as well as his ‘adopted' daughters, Brandy and Sally, would do a good job keeping the place running smoothly. Brandy and Sally were also about to be parents so the family was growing.

Life at Britin was full of life and love. And although they may face the ups and downs of life, together this tribe can make it through anything.

Summary:

Alternative ending to Season 5

From a plot bunny I saw years ago

 

Brian and Justin got married in the ceremony they had planned. They loved their rings. There had been many times as Justin worked on an art piece he felt Brian’s heartbeat as he worked at his desk. Many times they felt their heart beats sync and they both would feel the connection. They still went out to Babylon and on certain nights agreed to party with others but only if they were together and only if both of them agreed.  Most times they talked about a night like that they still went home together. There was a little flirting and a kiss or two but neither of them had broken the rules they had set for their marriage. Being able to feel the beat in the band made them feel more connected than ever.

After trying to talk Brian into getting checked out at the hospital, Justin took him to the loft and stayed with him for the night.

It has been five years since Brian and Justin had reunited at their Montana cabin.  Little Aiden is just completing kindergarten.  Although he would always have his health issues, they were well controlled as long as he stayed on his medication.  Gus was the son they are worried about.  He is 15 and completing his sophomore year.  He had gotten in with the wrong crowd.  He’d been living with his moms more and more who were too wrapped up in their own problems that they lost track of what Gus was up to.

 

Now it is up to Brian and Justin to try and get their kind and caring son back before it is too late.
