QaF Christmas fic Chap 1/4  
So I've written a Christmas fic. It is in 4 parts.

This is not, and I repeat, not crack!fic. If it's bad, then it's bad!fic so (shit! I hope it's not bad!)

Title: A Christmas Gift for Justin
Rating: R
Part: 1/4
Genre: some angst, some humor (you know me)
Pairing: Brian/Justin; Justin/other (sort of)
Summary: Brian seems very interested in two travelers to Pittsburgh.
Timeline: Alternate Season 1

Disclaimers: I do not own Cowlip or the boys but my teeth are my own.

Another boring night at the diner.

It seems at times, that this life Brian created for himself will always and forever be along the same lines as shampoo instructions.

Get up. Be fabulous at work. Go to the diner and meet up with everyone. Go to Babylon. Fuck as many men as possible. Fall asleep in a drug and/or alcohol induced stupor. Repeat.

"Hey Brian. Whaddaya say we go to Woody's tonight?" Mikey asked between mouthfuls of his sandwich.

Oh that's right. He forgot about the slight variations in his plans sometimes.

Get up. Be fabulous at work. Go to the diner and meet up with everyone. Go to Woodys. Fuck as many men as possible. Fall asleep in a drug and/or alcohol induced stupor. Repeat.

What can you say - he liked to shake things up a bit sometimes.

"Aww come on now. I wanted to go to Babylon tonight. I got all dressed up for it," Emmett said with his arms crossed against his chest and a pout on his lips.

"Well I wouldn't want to be responsible for Emmett's disappointment so I guess Babylon it is tonight," Brian said off-handedly.

Debbie chose that moment to walk up to the table, cracking her gum while grabbing the pencil that was permanently ensconced behind her ear. "So where's the fourth in your little quartet?"

"He had some work to handle so he said he would be running late but he should be here soon," Mikey supplied.

"Should I just get his usual ready baby?"

"Yeah Ma, that'd be nice."

As Debbie walked away, the bell above the door jingled signaling somebody new coming in.

As Brian looked up, he caught sight of two men walking in. The man in front obscured the man behind him. Brian suddenly had an intense chill as he took in the first man - not too tall, not too short, not too dark, not too light. In fact, everything screamed 'average' at Brian. However, it was the eyes that caught him unawares - dark and intense, like his hair. The man wore his solemnity and graveness like Brian wore Armani and Prada.

As the man took his seat in the next booth over, Brian took in his companion.

To say that Brian was rendered incapable of thought processes at the moment would have been a gross understatement.

Brian stared at the boy. Whereas the man was dark and cold, the boy was light and warmth. Surely this boy, with his mop of blond hair, bright blue eyes and fair complexion, wouldn't have anything to do with the man he sat down with.

He was convinced at this point the man had just picked up the boy and was treating him to a warm meal. Perhaps the boy was homeless? But that couldn't be because the boy looked more cared for than someone on the street.

"Please, can we stay here? In Pittsburgh - just through Christmas, please?" the boy pleaded.

Okay, so much for that theory. They were together.

"No Justin. You know as well as I that we have to keep moving. We can't just stay in one place," replied the man, leveling the boy with his intense gaze.

Justin - his name is Justin.

"I know - it's just through Christmas though. That's only a few days away! Please?" the boy continued to plead. Brian wanted to make his case for Justin also.

Of course, what Brian really wanted the boy for, he would only need a day - well, technically not even a whole day.

"Just drop it. Here's the waitress now."

"What can I get for ya," Debbie asked while continuing to pop her gum.

"Just get me something that isn't swimming in some disgusting sauce," said the man. "Surprise me."

"Okay, what about you Sunshine," Debbie said while smiling at Justin. Justin returned the smile.

Yeah, Sunshine. It worked.

"A double bacon cheeseburger, a large plate of fries and one of those big Chocolate shakes please."

"I'll get right on that!" And with that Debbie was off to take the order to the kitchen.

Brian continued to study the two men while Mikey and Emmett were deep into their own conversation.

Brian was now sure the two men were 'together' so to speak but how he wasn't sure. He was reminded of old tales, fairy tales (Brian laughed at his own pun) of creatures of dark who required creatures of light to exist - slowly feeding off their energy. An ogre who required a fair and beautiful boy (and Justin was beautiful) so he could have safe passage amongst the mortals. Or even more basic than that - a Morlock who required an Eloi for sustenance.

Then Brian laughed at himself once more for having such thoughts. He reminded himself that he was bored and the boy was a tasty morsel he would most assuredly like to take back to the loft (definitely not a quickie in the backroom at Babylon) and enjoy, savoring every last bite he could.

Brian shivered and shifted in his seat. Thoughts like that were not conducive to his current situation.

Yes of course, what Brian Kinney wanted, Brian Kinney usually got. Usually.

But seeing the boy (no Justin, his name is Justin) with the other man - the very strange, unsettling man - might just pose a challenge.

But Brian always loved a challenge. And it did break the monotony very nicely.

And he really wanted to take the kid home.

As Brian leaned it to listen to more of their conversation, someone approached their table.

"Oh hi sweetie. We were wondering when you would get here!" Emmett squealed.

"Sorry I'm late guys. You would think with the term being out for the Christmas holidays, I would be spared all this but oh no." Brian looked over to see Ben kiss Mikey on the lips chastely.

"Good," Brian replied, "someone go tell Debbie the 'fourth' in our little quartet has arrived."

Brian, annoyed with the interruption tuned back to Justin and his companion's conversation.

"Please, can we stay through Christmas. Please?" Justin asked one more time, with just a hint of exasperation.

"Okay, Justin. Just through Christmas," replied the man.

"You mean it?"

"Yes," said the man, the corners of his mouth turning up into a small smile.

With that Justin smiled and reached over to kiss the man on the cheek. "Oh thank you! Thank you Ted!"


Feedback is welcome and appreciated - really.

Thanks! :D

TED.... Ted. Ted.

I just.... didn't expect it to be Ted!

I am intrigued.

Maria: Justin condomslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:26 pm (UTC)
*revives you by administering CPR - blushes profusely - makes excuses to wives*

I underestimated the shock value of the whole 'Ted' issue.

Intrigued is good - hope to keep your interest.

Chaos..panic..disorder...my work here is done.: Mandy-brian orgasmjillapet on December 9th, 2006 06:06 am (UTC)
Hmmm....very interesting.

I love the part where Brian ponders on dark creatures needing a light source. Very fey of him-but, being "Kinney" he would have a bit of the blarney in him!

Update soon, please.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:31 pm (UTC)
Well, we all know how 'full of it' Brian is.

Yeah, it's a wee bit fey - it's not something he'd say out loud - I mean I always wondered what went on in his head so I figured 'why not?'

Updating very soon and thanks Pet!
bodleianbodleian on December 9th, 2006 06:47 am (UTC)
I want to see where this is headed. I know that I want to know the story behind Ted and Justin. Please update soon.
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:31 pm (UTC)
Oh don't worry - you will know their story soon enough.

very interesting and promising beginning
Maria: Justin condomslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:32 pm (UTC)
So have I effectively converted you over to the QaF fandom? Hmm?

Very glad to have you reading and thanks for the encouraging fb!

That last line was quite a surprise. You've hooked me and peaked my curiosity. :)
Maria: BJ Guh Showerslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:33 pm (UTC)
You're hooked and peaked? Cool!

I love still being able to surprise people with my fiction.

Thanks for the head's up!
verm66_matsu on December 9th, 2006 02:36 pm (UTC)
It's interesting!I can't wait next chapter.
Please update it soon ♥
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:34 pm (UTC)

OMG, Ted?!!!
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:35 pm (UTC)
Yes, Ted - but have faith - I wouldn't steer you wrong.

Breezeymountain_breeze on December 9th, 2006 03:39 pm (UTC)
I think it's great so far! :)
Maria: money shotslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:36 pm (UTC)
Well thank you!:D

More soon.
Rachealrae_1985 on December 9th, 2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
um? Justin and Ted are together? No offense, but *gags* Now I have to keep reading to see WHY they are together.
Maria: BJ Guh Showerslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:38 pm (UTC)
No offense taken.

I guess I did pretty much hit people over the head with that last line (this is something I do in most of my fics).

Don't worry - never fear though - I am a B/J girl to the core and I'm glad to see that you have to keep reading to see what's going on - I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Thank you!
My Flame Burns Bright: Justin Unbelievably Prettysuch_a_steph on December 9th, 2006 05:35 pm (UTC)
Squeeeeeee! I picked "average" Ted before the end ...YAY me :)
Ok... it's not crack!fic, but it is fun. I love fun fic! *hugs* please don't get sick again, I miss your unique writing.
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on December 9th, 2006 05:43 pm (UTC)
I couldn't think of a better hint than 'average' but I still wanted to throw everfyone off by having 'Ted' missing from their little quartet and then Ben showing up and everyone saying, 'hey wait a minute, where's Ted?' so good for you.

I can't believe the response I'm getting from that last line but I should have known better.

And yeah, it's fun fic (like my body swap fic) - I can't just leave my twisted sense of humor out of even my serious fics for too long.

I don't want to get sick anymore either. I lost so much time from everything around here and lj and the house - I can't get sick because it throws my schedule off! :P

I always love your fb so thanks!
Alexander: totally drunkashmedai on December 9th, 2006 06:30 pm (UTC)
Wasn't expecting Ted either - this is good! Has something "Charles Dickens" about it, nice at this time of year!
*now off to read some more cannibal stuff*! :D

Maria: Frodo doesn't live here anymoreslave_o_spike on December 10th, 2006 02:12 am (UTC)
There will be an element of the supernatural in it to be sure but I'm not giving anything away just yet.

And it will of course have my own strange sense of twisted humor.

And yay for cannibal fic! Thanks for taking the time to review while reading all my stuff! :D
harka on December 9th, 2006 08:35 pm (UTC)
Now I know why you repeated several times that it's not a crack!fic.

Ted!!??? O-M-G!

I was wondering during the chapter where the hell he was and who was the fourth man. Even when Ben was mentioned at the end, still it did not clicked "surprise!Ted in my head.
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on December 10th, 2006 02:14 am (UTC)
Some people will still probably consider this a crack!fic when all is said and done.

And yes, TED!

You know how much I love springing him in my fics.

Thanks for the fb!
