For those of you who found your way here looking for Three Strikes --- link to story on Ao3.

To my QAF friends who are wondering who the heck this is showing up on their feeds after so long... *waves*

I can hardly believe it's been three years since I posted here. I honestly looked to see if it was possible that LJ had the dates wrong. o_O  Nope. I suppose it's obvious that I have moved on somewhat from my obsession with all things QAF, however, if the fabled reunion ever takes place, I will be there with bells on!! Brian Kinney remains my all-time favourite tv character, but I fear he has some pretty close competition now in Mr. Dean Winchester. It seems I have a kink and it's gorgeous, witty, complicated, kickass anti-heroes-who-are-really-actual-heroes.

Yes, it's true, I've been bitten (and smitten) by the Supernatural bug. I didn't think anything could rival the Great Binge-Watch of '09 in which I watched all 83 episodes over a couple weeks. And then, a fellow QAF fanfic fan who shall remain blameless nameless, demanded suggested I read this really great story about the Winchester brothers. The rest is history...  10.5 seasons (205 episodes) in three weeks, 50 more 'live' since then. I love it (and at times I hate it) but there is always Dean to make it better :)

I offer up my humblest apologies to those who followed Stronger and believed in my promise that it would be finished. I have no excuse, only an explanation that life intervened in unexpected ways and kind of took the wind out of my sails for the story line. I do have a part 5 completed and the bones of the 6th and final chapter, but I don't know if I'll ever have the heart to finish it.  I won't say that it will never be revisited, but for now, let's call it an indefinite hiatus. I am so sorry.

I have written a couple of SPN stories, the one that instigated this post, and one other. They are on A03 here

TL/DR  q_dicted is back on LJ and apologizes for being lame.

One more story, but this belongs in a post of its own because it's a completely fangirlie, gushing, Oh My GOD moment for me. I have no idea if anybody heard it or was struck the same way by it, but it was a total Brian-Kinney-comes-to-life moment for me.

During the Cocktail Party speed-date, Gale was talking to a couple of the gals on the other side of the table. I have absolutely no idea what the conversation was about or what the response was in relation to, but I heard him say, "Great, it was great, it was great." My head snapped around so fast, and I swear I actually gasped out loud (ask the woman sitting next to me). It was the exact words and the exact voice that said them to Justin following their reunion sex in 502 when he came back from LA. (when he's tickling him to 'say it was great'.) In fact, during the scene that's been ^ ^ ^ ^ up there in my banner since I started this journal. Ahhh, it did this fangirl heart good!

A few more thoughts...Collapse )

So yeah. I fulfilled two of my bucket-list goals this Sunday. I saw the face of god Gale Harold in person, and I was able to say a personal thank you to both Gale & Randy for giving us Brian & Justin. I am a happy woman. SO many wonderful moments for me, and I will try to organize my thoughts over the next few days to write a proper recap, but for now, I'd love to share just two that will stand out in my memory forever.

Title: Stronger ~ Part 4
Rating: Hard R/NC 17 depending on the chapter.
Genre: Angst. teh Love. More Angst. I hate fic warnings with a passion. But more than that, I hate the thought that I might inadvertently cause pain to an unsuspecting reader. So I'm compromising and putting a gentle warning behind a spoiler. Read if you must.[Spoiler (click to open)]If you've read this far (and if I've done my job), then you already realize that this is indeed a cancer!fic. The only way I could write it is to commit to portraying it as accurately and respectfully as I can. I feel I owe that to those who have fought this loathsome disease, and to those who have fought along side someone they love. I'm not a health-care professional in any way, but I have researched as thoroughly as I possibly could. I have taken dramatic license when absolutely necessary, and all mistakes are mine.
Characters: Brian, Justin & their non-defined, non-conventional family.
Disclaimer: I own nothing except my thoughts, and even then sometimes, I rent.
Timeline: Post-513 All canon assumed.
Summary: That which does not kill us...
Author's Note: This is a work in progress. I am a slow writer - there's no getting around that - but I promise that it will be completed. Comments feed the muse. Just sayin'. My heartfelt thanks to my friend pet0511 for her patience, wisdom, and invaluable help, and to camelhaircoat for new-found friendship and a fresh ear. :-)

Remember that last post where I said I wasn't going to post any more of Stronger until it was finished? About that... I feel like I have enough ahead now that I can post and feel confident that it won't be another year (!!!) before I update again. So yeah.

Part 3 will be up later on this morning. :-)

If you are interested in catching up before then....   Parts 1 | 2

Greetings, Flist! For one reason and another (too tedious and boring to share), I have been away from LJ for quite a while. I am hoping that starting now, that will change again. I know I've missed a lot and look forward to catching up! First though, I need to apologize to all the lovely people who took a chance and started reading a work-in-progress from an admittedly-slower-than-the-second-coming writer. I swear, I never imagined it would be this long, even for me. :-/  Thank you for all the kind PM's asking after me. (and the pokes with a sharp stick to get on with it, too!)

In the first post for Stronger, I promised that I would finish it, and I will. In fact, part three is finished and the next part is started, but I decided maybe it's best to wait until the story is complete before I post it. I suppose I should have done that in the first place, but I thought maybe the, uhhh, incredible pressure incentive of having it out there would help me write faster. What I learned is, I shouldn't think!! Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I have not abandoned our boys. I hope when I'm finally finished there will still be a few who want to read it. Stay tuned!

About Part 2: I'm really hoping the old adage, better late than never, applies here. I warned you I was slow, I promised you it will be complete. Both things remain true. And that NC-17 warning ^ ^ up there? This is where it comes into play. A little angst, a little porn, a little angst, a little porn... You know, Brian & Justin. But unlike our beloved boys, it's my first time. Please be gentle!

Part 1
