It's only time

Hmmm... my first LJ entry. So much pressure!

First, the name... I am (obviously) enamored of Brian's 'it's only time' quote, but I know that's already been done. Still, I love it so and it is the first thing I created as a new QaF fan, so I'm keeping it! More recently I made a Brian/Justin video montage to the song 'The Red Strokes' because I thought the lyrics so suited our boys. So for now at least, that's the name of my journal.

The video is here... at least until youtube sees fit to take it away.

Brian & Justin Forever

I only discovered QaF a few months ago, and I consider it one of the best things that ever happened to me. I love the show. All of it. I'm unabashed in my love of all five seasons...including the end. Because really, I don't consider it the end... it lives on in my imagination and in my heart, and thanks to all the wonderful fiction writers in this fandom, I can revisit them all any time I want! Bless you all for sharing your talents! My heart belongs to Brian, but I love all the characters, from the ubiquitous Justin Taylor and the fabulous Emmett Honeycutt all the way to Leda and Cynthia and Blake. I am that cliche... I came for the Queer and stayed for the Folk.

And then there's Gale. Oh my. There just aren't words (given the limitations of the language) to do justice to how compelling, fascinating and just plain effing gorgeous he is. More on that later. Much, much more.


Now, I need a cigarette. *g*

thanks for your comment at qaf_rewind. So nice to know a new sister QaFfan, yay! :D

Loved your video, just so you know, I hate CW music so when I say this song doesn't suck that is high praise indeed.

Looking forward to more(hint?) soon.

Thank you, kat_u. My first LJ comment!!!

It was just so cool to read your comment on qaf_rewind - your story is so much like my own. I am just thrilled to have people to gush over the show (and drool over Brian) with.

I'm glad you enjoyed the video - I know some Country is dreadful, but man, those words just spoke to me about our B/J. I do hope to make at least one more (another song that's tugging at my brain). Stay tuned!

You have no ideas how many cigarettes I needed while watching QAF and Brian/Gale and reading your story...:-)))

There really is no one else like him, is there? Rawrrrrrr!

dear q_dicted,
I just wanted to say hi and let you know that I friended you.
I saw on adoringaudience's journal that you're from Canada too, so I just had to come and check out your journal! and I must say I'm eager to read Valediction...but I'm at wok right now and I need to stay away from angsty fic and death!fic at work RE: TEARS!

So yeah, hi! and please feel free to friend me back :)

Hi and welcome! Yep - a fellow Canadian here. Southwestern Ontario. I saw your post on AA's journal as well. Those comms you mentioned look very interesting and I'll be checking them out. I've only ever lurked on IJ, but it seems like a pretty cool place.

I definitely understand about the tears at work thing - been there, done that - made the red-faced explanations, lol. I'd be honored if you do give the story a shot though. It's a pretty tough sell in this fandom!

I am going to friend you too - but I don't see any friend request from you. LJ has been a large PITA over the last week or so with notifications. I only saw this because I happened back to my home page (I usually just come in via my Friend's page). Hopefully I get the notice sooner rather than later.

i think the friend request notifications lag behind or something...cuz at the top of the page it already says we're mutual friends.

comms are so fun! two other great ones: drabylon and qaf_drabbles (IJ) ...2 great and pretty active drabble communities
qaf_challenges is great because it's mirrored on both LJ & IJ,
and qaf_comingout has links to a ton of other comms on its sidebar.

Ha - I got the notice for this comment and the friend request at the same time. Stoopid LJ!

Thanks for the comm recs - I will definitely be checking them out. I think writing good drabbles is about the hardest thing there is - I admire anybody who can do it!
