I've never been a terribly prolific writer, but I used to write at least occasionally. But it's been a long time since I've written anything, and this is my first Lure fic. I hope you like it!

I just had to make a quick post before work swallows me up for the rest of the day.

I have become totally obsessed with Luke/Noah. Luke more so than Noah -- Noah has grown on me, but I still like him more because he makes Luke happy than for his own sake. But I am totally obsessed with the storyline. I haven't mainlined this much of a TV show since I first discovered QAF. In less than a week, I've gone through all 109 clips of Luke's pre-Noah storyline and all 130 clips of Luke & Noah's storyline, and I can't wait to see more. I have been going on about half the amount of sleep I really need so that I would have time to do all the work I need to do and still watch the clips, but I've managed to watch everything that's been posted so far.

I love them. I really do. But still... am I the only one who feels a little like a heroin addict:

This brief little ficlet was inspired by this week's drabylon challenge, but it is way too long to be considered a drabble.

Thank you so much to my beta, shadownyc. Your suggestions were fantastic and very much appreciated!

(Tax season has eaten my brain, not to mention most of my free time, but I did find the time to write at least one drabble this week!)

Title : You're My Home
Song : You're My Home by Billy Joel (click on title to download song)
Warnings : None
And the condom goes to : Justin
Timeline : post-513

Where ever we're together,
That's my home


You did it again... a conversation that began when I told you that getting ready for my first solo art show is stressing me out ended with you deciding the "real" cause of my stress is traveling back and forth to Pittsburgh every few weeks and telling me I need to go "home" to New York.

Maybe, if I just keep coming back every time you do that, one of these days you will finally figure it out. New York may be where I need to live right now, it isn't my home. You're my home. You always will be.

A couple of times in the past, I've acknowledged Valentines Day by posting some Anti-Valentines. This year, as I was looking at the different cards on that web site, I was inspired to do something... a little different.

I took a couple of the cards and wove them into a B/J ficlet. It's a completely silly piece of fluff, I wrote it at 4:30 in the morning after waking up at 3:00 and not being able to get back to sleep, and it hasn't been betaed, so it may very well suck, but I hope you like it anyway.

So here it is... my Valentines Day gift to you, my wonderful flist

I had actually started this one before I did It's the Thought that Counts, but I could not get it to work out to 100 words. In fact, the main reason I wrote that one was because I couldn't get this one to work. Well, I guess perseverance pays off, because I finally got it! So... I guess you could consider this a prequel.

And the Condom goes to: Justin


Think of Me

Years ago, Brian had been the one planning to go to New York. He'd told Justin he'd never think about him, and he expected Justin to do the same. How Brian felt today couldn't possibly be more different and he needed Justin to know that.

He could have said something, but he was still Brian Kinney so that would never happen. Instead, he bought an impressively proportioned dildo and put it in a gift box with a prepaid cell phone. What better way to say, "I'll think about you all the time... and I expect you to do the same."

Dedicated to tamalinn because.... well, mainly because she totally rocks, but also because she's been asking for a Cynthia POV fic.

It's also for damietta, who, over a year ago, challenged me to write "a B/J story seen through the eyes of Cynthia." What can I say... better late than never?

Major thanks to shadownyc for your input and support!

The "sex toys" challenge over at qaf_drabbles has inspired me a second time!


My Favorite Sex Toy

It was supposed to be so simple... in and out with the maximum amount of pleasure and the minimum amount of bullshit. That blond boy under the streetlight wasn't supposed to be much more than a sex toy; something to play with for a few hours, get rid of, and never think about again.

When I remember that night -- ten years ago today -- I'm not quite sure how I ended up here: in the garden behind a ridiculously extravagant house, surrounded by my friends, wearing a gold ring that very same blond boy put on my finger just moments ago...

Yay! I haven't written anything in so long, but the qaf_drabbles challenge inspired me! So, here you go, 100 words in response to Challenge #1 -- Porn: Sex Toys!

(cross-posted to qaf_drabbles)


It's the Thought that Counts

Justin’s first thought when he arrived in New York was that he’d made a mistake. If he hadn’t been afraid of disappointing Brian, he would have immediately headed back to Pittsburgh. He lay on the bed for half an hour before forcing himself to get up and unpack. At the bottom of his duffel bag, he found a box he’d never seen before. The note attached said, “For those nights when you can’t stop thinking about me.” Inside, he found a prepaid cell phone and an impressively proportioned dildo. Justin smiled. Maybe New York wouldn’t be so bad after all.

Rating: NC-17
Summary: Brian & Justin, just hanging out at the loft (a little bit domestic, a little bit humorous, a little bit smutty)
Timeline: Between 310 & 311
Disclaimer: I don't own them; if I did, I probably wouldn't be sharing them with you!

Author's Note: This is for paddies; several months ago I asked people to give me fic challenges (yes, I know, I'm nothing but prompt!), and she asked for domestic/playful/relaxed B/J, sometime between mid season 3 and early season 4.

Inspired by, of all things, an episode of Star Trek: Voyager called Course: Oblivion; a couple lines of dialog are stolen from that episode.

Thank you, shadownyc for the beta!

Here's my 122 drabble, as promised!

Episode 122
Brian had been running away from his feelings for months. He couldn't run anymore; his own words to Michael made him realize that.

"Life not worth living if you not take risk."

The words echoed through his mind as he showered, dressed, and drove across town. He nearly chickened out and turned back several times, but each time he repeated the words and pushed himself to keep going.

He held his breath as he stepped into the room full of dancing teenagers.

It was time he stopped running from his feelings; it would be the biggest risk of his life.

My muse has been busy today! Here's my 121 drabble, and I actually already have my 122 drabble written, only it's on my computer at work, so I'll post it tomorrow.


Episode 121
When Brian told you he was going to New York, you didn't think anything could hurt worse than that. Now he's telling you that he's never going to look back, that he's never even going to think about you, and that he expects you to do the same, and you realize you were wrong.

He says you'll be fine without him, but you know you won't be. When you think about the rest of your life without him in it, it's like all the air has rushed out of the room; it's all you can do to just keep breathing.

My muse has been very good to me today!

Episode 119
Michael thinks I'm using sex, drugs and booze to hide my true feelings. Maybe he's right. But if I am hiding my feelings, it's because I don't know how I'm supposed to feel. I remember all the cuts and bruises he gave me as a kid, and there's a part of me that's glad the son of a bitch is gone; the part that wants to dance on his grave. But there's another part of me, a part that I'll never admit to anyone, that is heartbroken, knowing I've lost all hope of ever gaining my father's love and approval.



Episode 120
"Check back with me in an hour."

You'd think, after all this time, I’d be used to having him say things like that to me. But I'm not, and I doubt I ever will be. It still hurts like a knife in my heart every time he pushes me away.

I know it's pathetic, but I just can’t help myself. As the hour comes to a close, I find myself heading his way. All I want is for him to tell me that he's done looking, at least for tonight, and that I'm the one he wants to take home.

My muse decided to strike again today!

Episode 118
You're amazed at how many emotions you can go through in such a short amount of time. He tells you he's not going to Dartmouth, he's staying right here in Pittsburgh, and you feel relieved, excited, elated. You're immediately angry at yourself; you're not supposed to care whether you get to see him every day. You try to make light of it, pretend you're disappointed, tell him that you thought you were finally rid of him. He tells you, "Not until I say so," and suddenly, you're terrified. Because you know, you just know, that someday, he will say so.

I am seriously going to try to get season 1 finished by the end of the year. That means 5 more drabbles in the next 26 days. Plus, I *am* still working on the challenges people left for me. I have two of them partially written and ideas on the other two. I hope to post at least one of them by next weekend.

Episode 117

Who does this Gui asshole think he is, telling me he's going to adopt Gus? I have to stop this from happening, but how? Then Justin says something about achieving your goals, and I realize that maybe I can fix this. I can give Gus to Melanie. All the problems between Mel and Lindz started when I refused to sign my parental rights over to Melanie, and I realize now that I can do that and still be his father. Maybe if I do this, I can get the munchers back together and get Gui out of our lives forever.

I was going through my old posts, putting tags on them (yup, that's me, right on the cutting edge of using the new features! :D ), and I came across that song lyrics meme that a bunch of us did last year. As I was looking at the drabbles and ficlets I wrote for it, I just really liked the way this one turned out, so I decided it deserved a title and a post of its own.

I wrote this for shape5, based on her song lyrics: "I touch the fire and it freezes me / I look into it and it's black."

I know I've been working on these drabbles for just about forever, but I haven't given up on them yet!

Episode 116
All morning, from the moment Brian showed up at the diner for breakfast, I'd been dying to tell him how great I did on my SATs and let him know what schools I'm applying to. I wanted him to be proud of me. That's not exactly what happened, but what did happen was so much better. I never imagined that he'd be upset about my going away to school, and that he'd let me know it. And not only that, but I even gave him a chance to deny it, and he didn't! This has been the best morning ever!

This silly little piece of fluff is for shadownyc who challenged me to write a somewhat schmoopy B/J future fic that included Gus as part of the story. I hope this is what you were looking for -- Gus doesn't actually appear in the story, but he is a part of it.

It's also for thistle90, who didn't actually challenge me to write anything, but whose decision to single-handedly start a new fandom was the inspiration for the plot.

I wrote this short little ficlet for severina2001's holiday wish list; she asked for "Brian/Justin fanfic... Something in which the boys are happy and there is possibly in-character schmoop." Since she's already read her present and told me she loved it, I decided to share it with the rest of my flist.

I've been telling myself that someday I'd get back to writing drabbles for almost a year now (seriously, I just checked... the last time I posted a drabble was 11/12/2004), and I guess the day has finally come, because I was inspired to write the next two drabbles today!

I just got a review on a story I wrote about a year and a half ago. I never posted it in my livejournal because I wrote it before I started using my lj on a regular basis. It's very short, very silly, and of the handful of things I've written in any fandom, I think it's my favorite. Or at least it's the only thing of mine that I thought was good without needing someone else to tell me it was good, so I decided to repost it here.

It's a PG-13ish That '70s Show fanfic, but you really don't have to be a huge fan of that show to read the fic, you just need to know who Eric and Donna are. And enjoy silliness.

Welcome to the Dark SideCollapse )

I'm not really sure where this came from. vedaprophet was encouraging me to work on a plot bunny I had come up with, but that story wasn't coming at all. Then this story just kind of happened. It popped itself into my head and insisted that I write it.

Summary: This is a short little QAF ficlet inspired by something in the recently released season 5 promo. Although I’m spoiler free, I do watch promos because I think of them more like teasers than spoilers, but if you are completely spoiler pure you might want to stay away.

Thanks to the lovely and talented vedaprophet for the beta. All remaining errors are mine.
