I think you have an amazing start to your story. I totally feel Justin's anguish in not knowing what's going on ... and I'm right there with him!
q_dictedq_dicted on September 3rd, 2011 10:53 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you liked it! And it's good you're there with Justin - he's going to need all the support he can get ;-)

Thanks for reading, and for the comment.

Great start, looking forward to more.

the cancer is back??? tell me no, tell me no!! I can't believe it, poor them :(

I'm totally hooked!
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 10:31 am (UTC)
tell me no, tell me no!!

Ummm, no? *averts eyes*

Sorry... I'm afraid Justin's reaction to those words was the proper one. :(

Thank you for reading and I hope you stay hooked through the rest of their journey!

This grabbed me and then the words just wouldn't let me go - so wonderfully sad... so perfectly Brian and Justin.

Thank you! I'm so pleased to see you here and reading. Wonderfully sad - that about says it all when it comes to angst, doesn't it? I do love to see our boys rise to the challenges that life presents them. I hope you'll enjoy what's to come, too.

so i'm thinking brian was in town to see an oncologist without letting justin know that the cancer is back.

how bad is it going to get? brian sick again and a baby on the way. odds are pretty bad.

can't wait for more.
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 10:44 am (UTC)
Good thinking ;) Sometimes it seems the universe really does have it in for our boys, doesn't it? 'Odds' are going to be a pretty big part of their lives for a while.

Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate both so very much.

Great chapter a ;ovely long one that allowed me to get into the story so I am seriously looking forward to the next one :)
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 10:47 am (UTC)
It was a long chapter but Justin had a lot to say about his day! Very glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for reading!

Thank you! Hopefully the wait won't be too long.

(((hugs back)))

A good strong beginning. Lots of suspense and you leave the reader wanting more. Looking forward to your next update.
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much. I can't ask for more than that!

This is so good! I love your writing. I want to throttle Brian and hug him at the same time.
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 12:44 pm (UTC)
He does tend to inspire that in us, doesn't he? The man is an enigma (but he's Justin's enigma ;-)

Thank you for reading and for the lovely comment.
templeton_matempleton_ma on September 4th, 2011 12:33 pm (UTC)
Indeed. So happy to see another fic from you. It certainly brightened my day knowing that I have something great to look forward to each day. I hope this one won't make us cry our hearts out like last time ;-)
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 12:47 pm (UTC)
Eeep! I'm two for two here. I can't promise something each day or to not make you cry! (though maybe not like the last time ;-)

Thank you so much for the lovely comment. I really appreciate it.

Wow, I'm addicted already, and this is only the first chapter. You've caught Brian and Justin's characters so completely. I can just see Brian behaving like this and my heart goes out to Justin. To Brian too, as something seems to be troubling him deeply.
q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 09:05 pm (UTC)
I'm so pleased you like the beginning. Our boys have a long road ahead of them!

Thanks for reading!

"There is no mistaking Brian Kinney for any other man in the world."

And you have nailed him. I love this story! Excellent beginning and I can't wait for more. You are amazingly talented. Your narrative and dialogue have the perfect flow. I feel like I am part of the story and not just being told a story. You have Justin's voice right too. And in this entire first chapter you didn't use any of the three phrases common in most fanfic that brings a story to a screeching halt for me. But this story is so good that if you end up using one of those things at some point I won't let it bother me. :)

q_dictedq_dicted on September 4th, 2011 09:07 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! I'm thrilled to see you here reading and I'm glad I didn't hit your halt buttons! *g* I hope you enjoy the rest as well.

Seeing this posted put a smile on my face. Guess you decided to start posting before you finished it. Good for us, though. Patience is not my strong suit. ;)

This looks like it will be a wild ride but I would expect nothing less of you. Superbly written but that's a given with you. And as always, you capture the emotions so beautifully and with perfect clarity.

I'm looking forward to where you will take us on this journey. :)
q_dictedq_dicted on September 5th, 2011 09:48 am (UTC)
So glad to see you here!! I know I said I wouldn't post 'til it was finished this time - then went and did it anyway! For a few reasons, the main one being giving myself a kick in the ass!

Thank you for the kind words, you give me such a confidence boost!

I fear our boys are in for a bumpy ride - I hope they can keep telling me all about it ;-)
95baker on September 5th, 2011 01:11 am (UTC)
Wow...I am exhausted. But completely in a good way. Trust me. Trying to figure out what in the world is wrong. On top of that I am a worrier and Brian does not seem to be present in the future (when the baby was born).

Can't wait to see what happens next. I will be patient and get me some Kleenex. I have a bad feeling that I am going to need them.

q_dictedq_dicted on September 5th, 2011 09:53 am (UTC)
They can be two very exhausting boys (and not always in the positive, life-affirming way, hmmm? *g*) I worry about them, too. Especially when Brian starts spouting Spanish.

Thank you for reading and for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it so much.
You're very eloquent when I'm drunk...caelia_canta on September 5th, 2011 01:45 am (UTC)
So when I saw that you had posted a new story, I quite literally bounced with joy. I agree with everyone here in that you have some of the most in-character portrayals of Brian and Justin that I've ever had the pleasure to read- enough so that I feel inspired to perhaps try my hand at writing a fic for this wonderful fandom myself!

However- if this fic makes me cry as much as Valediction did (which, by the way, I have read at least 10 times despite my general reluctance to read death!fic and absolute abhorrence of weeping), I may end up DANGEROUSLY dehydrated... Do us a favor and end this one happily after all the angst!
q_dicted: StrongerJBq_dicted on September 5th, 2011 10:00 am (UTC)
Wow! Being true to Brian and Justin's characters is the most important thing to me, so your kind words mean a lot! I was inspired to write Valediction by the incredible authors I found here in the B/J fandom, so to think that maybe I inspired one myself is an incredible honour. Thank you so much, and best of luck on your writing.

I don't think this is the weeper that Valediction was, but it can't hurt to have a couple tissues on hand anyway, right? *g* And maybe a bottle of water, you know, just in case.
