Omg, Omg, Omg, Omg, Omg, Omg!!!!!!

Justin found out that the Brian he's been with was an imposter. Joe's the coolest guy around. And Our Brian has found out that there is another Brian who is currently with his wonderfully fucked up Justin

Oh Fuck.

That sums it up.

Actually, I think you mean chapter 22 and yes, it will be soon. I'm working on it right now.

Yes, it does appear that all the shit is hitting the fan.

Joe is...well, you know. :)

*hugs and kisses you back*

Thank you!!!!!

I think that there is no other mind out there that is more twisted than yours.

I was so waiting for Justin to walk in on Brian and Michael talking so many times. And wow it finally happened! I can't believe it, hahaha.

And now for our Brian the one we know and love... holy shit i think i just about choked on my drink. Joe the perv, what a convo that was to read.

Very cool chap!
Maria: angst BJ Desperationslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 04:40 am (UTC)
I hope there isn't one more twisted. LOL!

Joe is a riot, innit he? It was bound to happen that Justin would find out before they told him the TRUTH!!!!

Thank you and more to come soon!!!!

I'm sorry but this fb is going to suck. The story is great but I'm too tired to make sense of anything right now.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah I want to know what happens!!!! Stupid guardians. why can't they just do what they are supoesed to do? Poor Brian and POOR Justin.

YOu write such a captivating story, and I'm dying to read more of it. Good job!
Maria: Angst BJ Missing Youslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 04:41 am (UTC)
Yeah, I mean, they're guardians, they should have been guarding, ya know?

*pets our boys*

Your fb didn't suck at all! I love it!

Thank you and more soon. :)
Nynot_yet_defined on April 22nd, 2007 08:13 pm (UTC)
YAY! mostly yay cause this wasn't horribly angst filled, lol.

but also YAY, cause now justin knows!

joe is hilarious.

can't wait for next chapter!
Maria: angst BJ Betrayedslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 04:42 am (UTC)
Nope, no angst, not really.

And yes, Justin knows and Brian knows.

And it's got Joe. :P

Thanks and more soon! Promise. :)

"Now who the fuck are you and where's Brian?"

I love Justin! I'm happy he's found out (or is finding out) about the situation. It wasn't fair that he was going through all that not knowing what was really going on.

And poor Brian, realizing that someone else may have taken his place in his world! And after having gone through the frustration of having to talk to Joe...

Joe cracked me up with his "I'm Batman" line, and his excitement about playing his 'name the movie' game. LOL
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 04:58 am (UTC)
I love Joe too! :)

Yeah, Brian is finally getting it and Justin now knows - and he's pissed!

More soon and THANK YOU!!!!

I love Joe...and Jo. ;b

I have to admit that seeing a smart and intuitive Michael is quite refreshing for a change.

Justin finally discovering the truth was a great cliffhanger...and Brian wanting to so badly get back to HIS Justin...don't you think it's TIME???
tawny: bj-hugtawny_7 on April 23rd, 2007 12:16 am (UTC)
I agree!!! It's time for Brian to go back to Justin!!!
Oh...and maybe you can have something happen in the other world so the other Justin isn't dead???

Hey...it could happen! It's an alternate universe right???

Well if it makes u want to write faster... Ive been here since the beginning and though I was cautious I am adoring this fic... its realistic... in that space flying, soul swaping and alternate universe and Buffy kind of way... but the Brians r IC and so is Justin... They r all reacting in believable ways to lets face it unbelievable circumstance..
anyways that is all
Im timing u now I expect the next chapter to arrive a whole long comment faster
Maria: angst BJ Desperationslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:42 am (UTC)
Well it's obviously not realistic in the whole normal world kind of way, but thank you. I want to keep my characters IC and reacting realistically.

These are not paperdolls. They're Brian and Justin.

I'm working on chapter 22 right now. I just need a break.

Thank you again and for coming out of lurkerdom. :)
illyryaillyrya on April 22nd, 2007 09:21 pm (UTC)
I'm glad to see Michael growing up, it's nice to know that he can be one when the need arise. Oh boy our Brian and Justin are going to kill the other Brian. Can't wait for more.
Maria: angst BJ Betrayedslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:43 am (UTC)
Yeah - it doesn't look good for other Brian right now, does it? LOL!

And yes, Michael is growing up. He was doing it on the show, so I decided to make that true here.

Thank you! More soon!
bodleianbodleian on April 22nd, 2007 09:21 pm (UTC)
Bloody hell! I'm glad that Justin finally understands what is going on. I was almost scared that their Brian would fight leaving because of Justin but I think that this problem has been averted. Now just to get the two Brians to the right place at the right time. I'm sure we still have a few problems to overcome but hope is now stronger.
Joe, btw, is a total pig but I can put up with him if he helps.
Write quickly, please.
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:45 am (UTC)
Oh yeah - that problem has been nipped in the bud.

Joe is a sweetheart! :P

And yes, to get the two Brians in the same place is the trick.

The 2 Joe's have their work cut out for them.

Thank you! Working on chap 22 now!
das_vronidas_vroni on April 22nd, 2007 10:08 pm (UTC)

Now it gets interesting.
btw, loved the dialogue with Joe, hilerious *g*
Oh, and can´t wait to see how Mikey and Brian (in the store) get out of that sling *no pun intended*

Maria: angst BJ Desperationslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:46 am (UTC)
It was very fun to write Joe. I think I was channeling Steve Buscemi.

Sling? LOL! Ewwww...the 2 of them....ewwwww!

Yep, they sure have their work cut out for them, backpedaling as to why they lied to Justin like they did.

wouldn't want to be them.

More fun to come! Thank you!!!!
critic75critic75 on April 22nd, 2007 11:14 pm (UTC)
You Totally captured Steve Buscemi. I could picture him in my mind saying exactly what you wrote.
Loved it! I'm also pleased to see the story coming together with explanations of why things worked as they did, with a possible resolution in store.
Fucking good job, Maria.
Maria: angst BJ Stormfrontslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:49 am (UTC)
Fucking good job, Maria.

Now you're fucking talking my language. LOL!

I think I was truly channeling Steve there. I've seen so many of his movies where he acts like this that it wasn't too hard. I think I could write his dialog all day long!

Yep, resolutions in store and truths to come out!

Thanks JJ!
mdlawmdlaw on April 22nd, 2007 11:18 pm (UTC)
With help like Joe, our Brian might never get back. m :O
Maria: angst BJ Stormfrontslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:49 am (UTC)
Oh, Joe's okay. He'll be more help than you'll know. *wink*

Thanks! More soon!
Love Goes On: outofordercrazy4qaf on April 23rd, 2007 12:16 am (UTC)
Joe is a complete wacko, but in a creepily good way. We like Joe. Joe can stay. :p Now, all we need is for Justin to teach AU!Brian some manners. Like, if you somehow crossover to a parallel world, you just don`t go and fuck your counterpart`s unconvential non-boyfriend. :)
tawny: Hi!tawny_7 on April 23rd, 2007 12:17 am (UTC)

Looking forward to the next chapter...I can't wait to see how Justin reacts to the news of two worlds and two Brians!

But...when is it going to be time to call the guardians and make the switcheroo?! Soon I hope!
Maria: angst BJ Betrayedslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:52 am (UTC)
Things are rolling quite quickly here so soon!!! Be patient!

And oh yeah - Justin reacting to Brian and Mikey and their lies?

Oh yeah....

More soon. I'm in the middle of writing it. Thank you!!!!
my2cats: shadow of Umy2cats on April 23rd, 2007 01:14 am (UTC)
Joe cracked me up,what a loon.With pickup lines like that,no wonder the *poor* man doesn't get laid,lol.
I am glad Brian got more answers.I can imagine realizing that there is another Brian with HIS Justin will not go over very well with him.
Look out...Justin is mad.Oh Fuck is right.Can't wait to read how this conversation is going.I have a feeling it won't be pretty.

Maria: angst BJ Betrayedslave_o_spike on April 24th, 2007 06:54 am (UTC)
Joe is misunderstood. :P

And yes! Brian has sort of had his mind on finding Justin and then finding Justin and then finding out Justin might still be alive that he never had time to think that there was another Brian over there!

And you know Justin when he's pissed off! o_o
