Former professor of nutrition. Theater set-designing as a hobby with occasional onstage appearances. QAF fan-fiction author 2000-2008 with lots of readers. I wrote from the viewpoint of Brian Kinney…his backstory, expanding the current story, and specializing in the “X-rated” activities in Brian’s loft and the backroom at Babylon. Those stories are now almost inaccessible on a website that looks threadbare…so I have moved my stories here, with Lorie's and TAG's help. And now I've started writing new stories.
This isn't a story. It's a personality evaluation of Brian's character, based on the colors he wears. Let me know in the comments what you think.
Intent on learning a new skill, Justin asks Brian to give him lessons on how to give a blow job. Apparently Brian tastes better than a carrot. Funny and playful at times, the way they are when no one is watching.
A college boy, rejected by his gay professor, and unskilled in sexual matters, finds lessons in gay-male behavior in the backroom and orgy-room of "Rumors," a gay bar in Altoona, where his life is changed forever.
Through interactions with both positive and negative examples of the gay lifestyle, he is transformed from a solitary loner, unable to make the first move, into the Master of the Backroom at Babylon, as we know him in QAF.
A timeline of my stories and where they fit into QAF
Brian meets an irresistible man while on a business trip. To Brian's surprise, C.J. turns out to be more than a quick romp in a strange city. With his help, Brian starts the difficult task of recovering from Justin's departure.
An insight into how Brian uses his power of seduction over the internet.
Post-episode 220, " the breakup," Justin's POV. Justin retrieves his belongings from the loft after he leaves the Rage party with Ethan. He then returns to Ethan's apartment where the two begin the odyssey of their relationship. Justin meets someone who will change his life forever. It is becoming clear that Justin is still thinking of Brian and wondering if he has made the right choice. Justin returns to the diner to discuss his situation with Debbie while she serves him a free breakfast. Later, he's invited to meet with a fan of his work. At her request, he reluctantly parts with a piece of himself. Justin regrets giving the drawing away and tries to recreate it, but is unsuccessful. Trying to clear his mind, Justin goes for a walk, only to run into a dancer from Babylon. Andre is only too happy to recount what has happened to Brian since Justin has left him. Justin and Ethan's relationship is already beginning to show strain. Despite the feared repercussions, Justin asks for the return of his drawing. The reaction is not what he was expecting. Instead, he learns about her philosophy of the artistic process... and of her opinion of Ethan. Justin returns to Ethan only to find that his jealous lover is determined to wipe Brian out of Justin's memory by destroying Justin's prize. Justin leaves... perhaps forever.
Gap-filler for episode 301. Brian responds to Justin's departure in his usual way...drugs, booze, Babylon, and the Baths. In this story, he attempts to find a ‘trick' who resembles Justin. But, during his depression, he continues to remember details of their relationship... and he misses Justin even more.
Brian reacts to Justin's departure from the Rage party in typical Brian fashion. A hedonistic, gluttonous visit to the Baths. It is clear that Brian foresaw the split-up and has his own clear evaluation of the situation...but that doesn't make the split-up any less raw or soul-crushing.
A relaxing time in the loft after Brian's surgery
Author Notes: Point of View Brian and Justin. What does one do on New Year’s Eve? Spend it with old friends, of course, remembering past, and perhaps better, times. The split with Justin is still a gaping wound for Brian, although he would never admit it. And Brian turns to his usual forms of forgetting auld acquaintance.
There is a brief reference to my Christmas-holiday story, "Let Nothing Ye Dismay" although this is not, technically, a sequel.
The new student in Pittsburgh’s North Hills High-School, Brian Kinney, finds himself labeled as an outcast. That is, until he meets the boy who accepts him... and helps him explore his growing sexuality. A defining relationship that begins to mold Brian into the man he would become. A precursor to the Requiem Series.
