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
Title: Stronger ~ Part 3 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. :-)
