Stronger - Part 2  

Title: Stronger ~ Part 2
Rating: Hard R/NC 17 depending on the chapter.
Genre: Angst. teh Love. More Angst
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'.

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

For Karen, without whom my story would not be the same.

You can't imagine how happy I was to see this update!
What a wonderful chapter.

Loved to read this time Brian's POV about what's going on.

The prologue part 2 broke my heart. It's so painful, but those lines are painfully beautiful.

The sex scene were delicious. You did a wonderful job, believe me.
They're hot, sexy and at the same time, they don't fail to show the chemistry, the passion, the sweetness that only two people who love each other share in their intimacy.

Damn! When things were going so great, suddenly life decided it was time to explode a new 'bomb' .
Shit! Brian......

Thank you so much for the update. Happy New Year!

Thank you, Pam. I think the prologue pt 2 was maybe the single hardest thing I've ever written, and that's saying something considering I once 'killed' him! Seeing him there, in such a terrible place and for the moment at least, alone. Wahh!

I'm so thrilled you enjoyed the sexy part. I really believe what you said - it's all about the intimacy and the 'knowing' between them that makes it so much more than sex now. Their bonds go far deeper - and they're going to need them!

Happy New Year to you, also - and thank you again!

I can't believe I missed it! Because it's just the quintessence of what I like about B/J: it's hot, it's funny, it's loving, it's tender.
I'll say it again: one of the best fic I've ever read. Fabulous!

I'm glad you found it! I think I made a mistake posting on New Year's Eve, lol.

Brian and Justin are all those things, and more. I'm so thrilled you find that in my story. And they are going to need all of those things in the days to come, too. Thanks for reading and for the lovely comment.

I was randomly checking for updates at MW for Turning Points last night and saw that you had updated Stronger! I was so excited to see that, don't know how I missed it -- it feels as though I've checked on it so many times.

The story continues to be another wonderful angst-filled minefield that keeps reminding me of my MIL's favorite saying "men plan and God laughs." Your writing makes the characters come alive, and all the details are so well thought out that even the Kinnetik background filler feels real.

I'm already looking forward to the next part of the story, whenever that may pop up, and I wish you a healthy and happy 2012. Thanks for getting the new year off to a great start here for us B/J lovers. So glad to see you again :)

I'm glad you found it, Amy! I always look forward to your thoughts on my chapters.. I hope to have the next part ready a little more quickly than the last.

I'm glad the Kinnetik part wasn't too tedious - there was some information there that will matter down the road. Plus, it lets Cynthia talk some, and that's always a good thing for me! And yes, if you want to make God laugh, then tell Him your plans. There are definitely some rough waters in store for our boys, so I'm glad they had these moments at least.

Thanks for reading and for the lovely comment. I appreciate it very much.

ETA: That hug in your icon is one of my most favorite moments of the whole series. I can't stop looking at it!

Please, update soon.. You can't just leave us hanging like that!

It will be soon, I promise. The muse, she is a cruel bitch sometimes!!!

I read your complete story Valediction and let me say I wasn't sure I wanted to read anything else, because this made me cry so much, I read the warnings and still I wasn't prepared for what you did, but saying that I read the 'angst and more angst' on this one and no where was there 'major character death' so I thought I'd give it a shot, even though its a WIP and let me tell you I love it and you can't just leave it there, I need to know more and soon :)

My apologies for the delayed response.[/massiveunderstatement] For too many reasons, I've been away from 'Stronger' for a while, but I promise, it will be finished. I'm going to make a post later today about it. Thank you for your patience!

Thank you, first for reading Valediction, and then for still being willing to take a chance on Stronger. I'm thrilled to know you're enjoying it. And yes, there will be angst and more angst (and then some more after that) but I swear there will also be love and joy (and a little hot B/J action!). Please stay tuned!

Omg, what an intense, spellbinding story! I was on the edge of my seat reading this. I hope you will continue it soon. xo

Please friend me. You are an amazing writer & this is a wonderful story. I don't want to miss any of your new chapters. The love and angst are so real and you have their voices prefectly. Their's a lot going on with Brian. I hope the Doctor's phone call about the test is just a glitch.

Oh my gosh, thanks for the kind words. Getting their voices right is so important to me. Our Brian is definitely going to be tested to the limits in this story, but both he and Justin are strong. Now they will have to be Stronger! Please stay tuned!

Hey, it's almost a year now. Do we have to accept the thought, that this will be an aWIP? :(
q_dictedq_dicted on February 16th, 2013 04:13 pm (UTC)
Ah, love4movies, I am so sorry it's taking forever for this story. I am going to make a post about it later on, but I wanted to respond to you directly. I have been catching up on LJ today after several months away and I've seen your amazing recs of Valediction on GIH. I can't even say how gratified I am by your kind words. Thank you just doesn't seem enough, but it's all I've got. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

When I posted part one, I promised that Stronger would be finished and I mean to keep that promise. I hope that it will be worth the wait in the end!

Wonderful update,I hope nothing is wrong with Brian ~ Yvonne xx

Oh dear, I'm afraid there isn't much hope for that. :-(

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy the next parts. Well, maybe 'enjoy' isn't really the right word. ;-)
