Fic #3 - "Sometimes Teddy says the strangest things"  
Here is the third of the fic requests!

brianswalk requested something post season 5 with Brian and Ted.

So here you go!

"I've decided I want to live."

"Uh, that's nice Theodore," Brian replied, perplexed as to what his chief financial officer was doing standing in his office saying something about as non-sequitur as things Ted could possibly say.

"I mean it. I want to live," he repeated defiantly.

"Is this one of those mid-life crisis things where you've decided to give up all your worldly possessions and hit the road to discover America? Because if it is, I want your vintage wine collection," Brian sad as he leaned back in his plush office chair.

"No, I've decided..."

"That you want to live. I know. I got the memo," Brian smirked.

"I like where I'm at right now in life. Thanks to you, I have a job that makes me want to get up in the morning..."

"You mean up as in get out of bed bacause I seriously don't need to know you're beating off..."

"I have a lover that makes me happy. You know Blake and I are becoming quite serious," Ted said dreamily, a wistful look on his determined face.

"Yeah, I saw that at Babylon. Could you please not do those things in public from now on..."

"And I just don't trust you to make the right decision anymore."

"Alright," Brian started in confusion. The conversation was not going where he thought it was supposed to be going.

"Five years ago, I didn't really care if I lived or died if something happened to me. I was in a dead end job, no boyfriend. Hell! Not even a decent occasional fuck. I left the decision up to you because you wouldn't care. But now, I do care so you're not my power of attorney anymore regarding my heath. I want to live!"

And with that Ted left Brian's office as abruptly as he had entered.

Of course, had Ted stayed one minute longer, he would have heard one Brian Kinney, the one everyone accused of not giving a shit, mutter "I want you to live too Ted."

Chuckling quietly to himself, Brian proceeded to get back to work on his desk.


Hope this is what you wanted brianswalk!

Good for you Ted. :D Brian and Ted's friendship will always be one of my favorite things about S4 & 5. :)
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 13th, 2010 08:40 pm (UTC)
Mine too! I loved how Ted and Brian got along (esp. S5) far better than Mike and Brian.

Thank you!

I loved this! I can picture this scene perfectly.
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 13th, 2010 08:41 pm (UTC)
I really wanted to make it something that could actually happen. Not crack at all, but something you would see on the show and I thought this was an important thing about them that was never brought up again.

Thank you!

I love this so much. It's a perfect snapshot of their new, improved relationship.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on January 13th, 2010 10:48 pm (UTC)
Exactly! Because Brian from S1 really didn't give a flying f*** about Ted. This says so much because I believe he does care abut him in S5. Thank you and nice to see you again! :)

cute. I've always loved their banter :)
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 13th, 2010 10:48 pm (UTC)
It was great, wasn't it? Much better than Mike's and his.

It always seemed strained.

Thanks Snow! :)

i liked it. took a bit to get to where he wanted it to go but good for him to finally say it out loud.
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 13th, 2010 10:49 pm (UTC)
Because Ted will always get the point out - even though sometimes it's like pulling teeth.

Thank you!!!

Oh, Maria! This is perfect.:) You know how much I adore the way their friendship developed. What a wonderful way to cap it off.
This is exactly what I wanted!
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 14th, 2010 07:02 am (UTC)
Yay! After hearing what you wanted (about Ted being more in control), I knew this would be right. And it doesn't just show how much Ted changed, but Brian as well and their relationship to each other.

Thank you! *smooches*

That was delightful!
Maria: Ted - poutingslave_o_spike on January 14th, 2010 06:43 am (UTC)
Thank you! And I love your icon. He was so cute in that episode. :)

Love Ted and Brian conversations. This one works so well because both voices are spot on. I am glad Ted wants to live.
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 14th, 2010 06:42 am (UTC)
Ted should want to live. :) And thank you! I always like to hear that I do get the voices right.

Regardless of the ridiculous left turn Ted took on the show (he SO couldn't have gone that druggie route in the real life I've imagined for QAF world), I loved how Ted and Brian's relationship developed into a real, grown-up friendship that did ring true. This is a delightful affirmation of how I see them.
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 14th, 2010 06:41 am (UTC)
Exactly! It was like I just told Susanne. I liked them together far more than him and Mikey because it seemed more grown up and based on Brian's needs as an adult male. He made friends with Michael when he was still a teenager.

Thank you. I wanted to show how I saw them as well. :)

Oh that was awesome!!
Maria: BJ cuddleslave_o_spike on January 14th, 2010 06:39 am (UTC)
Why thank you!!! :)

I so love Brian and Ted's friendship.
Great ficlet, Maria.

Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 14th, 2010 06:39 am (UTC)
Thank you! And so do I. Much better than him and Mikey. :) It was more grown-up.
kika-k: Brian-smirkskika_k on January 14th, 2010 08:38 am (UTC)
Great fics!
Love Brian and Ted unique conversation! :P
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 15th, 2010 02:17 am (UTC)
Thank you!

I try to be different. LOL!
lindtti: B/J lovelindtti on January 14th, 2010 10:32 am (UTC)
Aaaww! It was wonderful.

Believe me Ted, you can trust Brian in this case. He wouldn't let you die...

Thank you for bringing a smile on my face! ♥!!!
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on January 15th, 2010 02:18 am (UTC)
Thank you!!!

I think so too, but Ted wants to play safe on this one. :)

Evie: QaF - Brian and Tedevie on January 14th, 2010 12:30 pm (UTC)
That was wonderful! I love the friendship between Brian and Ted (it's pretty much the only reason for me to rewatch S4 and S5). ♥ I could totally imagine this conversation taking place.:)
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on January 15th, 2010 02:18 am (UTC)
I wanted something that would actually occur and yes, I loved it too. So much better than Mike and Brian. Thank you!!!
