Yes, it will be here soon. I'm thinking the weekend.

Thank you!!! :)

Had he taken him and then taken him again and decided this was a cozy little set up?

"Yeah, I fucking hear you on that one, loud and clear," Joe said, interrupting Brian from his thoughts. "Especially knowing what I know," Joe finished by crossing his arms over his chest and lifting his eyebrows suggestively.

Oh, poor my!Brian.

Brian looked at the little man and sighed. "You're fucking with me right now, aren't you?"

"I like to think of it as humoring you and yeah, I am.


</i>"I love him, okay? The word seems so trite for what I feel."</i>

*melts into a pile of mush*

As Joe would say, 'in a fucking heartbeat.'

"Yes, I would. Because if I stay here, I'm dead anyway," Brian said, straightening his shoulders and standing taller. "I'd risk it all."

That's my boy!

And at the comic book store in the other world...

Michael knew that if Justin had been a weather front, his shop would have been leveled and FEMA would have been called in.

Loved that line!

"But, I felt really bad about it." channeling Spike?

"Oh my God. You felt bad about it," Justin stated incredulously. "Yeah, I could tell by the way you were in the shower in the morning and when you...you. Oh God," Justin said as he stepped back from Brian. "You tried to fuck me raw."

I can't tell you how pissed that still makes me!

The flashback to the fortune teller? Kinda freaky and very sad. I'm not surprised even a young Justin picked up on it right away.

"It's time," Brian said.

OMG, I feel like a little kid whose favorite show is about to come on. I can't wait! Awesome chapter, Maria!

Maria: angst BJ Betrayedslave_o_spike on April 28th, 2007 03:44 am (UTC)
Wow! I love love love long quoty fb!!! Yay!

Yes, and Joe loves throwing gas on the fire there, by telling him ALL about other Brian. LOL!

Brian's ready to go back and Joe needed to push him, so he's really ready to confront those nasty guardians!

And I always got that Brian didn't say 'the L word' because he did feel something more for Justin and didn't know how to express it - he felt it was just too cliche.

I think everyone is pissed at other Brian for that little 'slip up.' And I don't think that if other Brian were going back now, Mikey and Justin would be having some serious words with him regarding that.

Thank you!!!! I love that you're so excited about what's to come! Yay! Make me really happy (esp for someone who wasn't for about the whole sci fi thing in the beginning. :D)

Thanks again!!!

Yep - you got it!!!

It's time.

Do I hear a 'squeeeeeeee?'

Thank you!

How many times can I say I love this? I do, I really really do.

I really wish Justin & Brian had come to these realisations at that point in canon *sighs*
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on April 28th, 2007 03:38 am (UTC)
Yes! Exactly! I wish they had too...in canon!!!

So I pushed it along. And brought it home quicker. See? Now a bomb doesn't have to go off in S5. And now there's no Ethan. :)

I know you love it - but I love hearing it.

And I just love your Emmett icons. It captures the squeeage so well! :)

My heart aches for our Justin. I could picture the scene with the three of them.
But you know, this other-Brian is certainly going to be a changed man when he gets back. **unless of course he ends up being "the remains"** I hope you give us a view of him when he gets back.
And that Joe, he's priceless!
Maria: angst BJ Betrayedslave_o_spike on April 28th, 2007 03:36 am (UTC)
Joe is love.

And other Brian remains? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. But if he survives, I will of course give you a glimpse of him. :)

And yes, everything about S2 Justin just tore at my heart, seriously. I could really see him asking these questions at the comic book store and Michael being seriously surprised that he felt that way. Brian and Mikey were well intentioned in S2 but blind.

Thank you - next chapter soon!!!!

Yea! It's time! Though I say that with a tinge of dread too. I'm really looking forward to what will happen...please post soon!
Maria: angst BJ Stormfrontslave_o_spike on April 28th, 2007 03:34 am (UTC)
Dread that it's almost over or dread as in 'oh no - we're going to see the Guardians?!'


I'm working on the next chapter right now! Thank you1!!

I've felt terrible that i couldn't review your last chapters because i know you LOVE feedbacks !!! LOl Seriously,i understand (even if i confess that i review few authors that i read, but at least i folllow them step by step)that it's the fuel that you need to keep going.the addition of Joe's character has been such a great idea.the guy totally crakes me up ! And he really ahs a trick with women doesnt he ? LOL
I can't wait for the next part...Aida
Maria: angst BJ Stormfrontslave_o_spike on April 29th, 2007 10:44 pm (UTC)
Joe is love - as I've been saying. I just love him.

Yeah, he really does have a way with women, huh? LOL!

That's okay about the fb. I understand. You can sometimes only get a few moments to read. I know more than anyone. When I wasn't writing, and just reading, there were times I thought, "oh, I'll leave them great fb so they know how much I loved their story" and then I would get distracted. You've left me lots of wonderful fb so I'm one happy camper.

Thanks! Chapter 23 is coming! (It's with the beta right now).

Joe is awesome! I laughed so much.

And now I'm kicking myself because there are no more chapters to read.
I LOVE this story so much.
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on April 29th, 2007 10:41 pm (UTC)
Joe is love. :)

Thank you!!!!

I love that you read this all the way through and stopped to give me fb! Thank you!

Don't worry, chapter 23 is at the beta's right now. Yay!!!

(And yes, she's pretty quick).

I have been falling behind a bit on this one. That's the bad thing. The GOOD thing is that now I have all this goodness to look forward to!

*skips merrily off to read the next chapter*
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on May 10th, 2007 09:35 pm (UTC)
Yay! It probably was a good thing to read these last few chapters all at once.

I think I caused some mental breakdowns. LOL!

hehehe Kip became wall food. :D *grins*

Justin certainly put Brian2 in his place. :) Now.... let's get our Brian back.
Maria: Justin slave_o_spike on October 5th, 2007 11:48 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, Justin knows how to put Brian in his place. *smirks evilly*

I had entirely too much fun writing that scene.

And Kip finally has a purpose in life, doncha know?
Megbndjsfaghag15 on February 29th, 2008 07:21 am (UTC)
aww, i feel bad for brian2. i really do. but luckily he wasn't with justin long enough to fall in love with him. i just hope once he gets back to his world.... actually, no, i don't. is it terrible i'd rather see brian, ANY brian, alone, if they can't be with justin?
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on March 1st, 2008 03:52 pm (UTC)
And that's the crux of it. He wasn't with Justin long enough to fall in love with him. Our Brian had been. He may have liked the kid a lot when he first met him, but he wasn't in love. It took time.

And no! It is so not terrible to not want to see Brian with anyone else! There were some people who asked he could get someone and there were other people who said they were so happy that he wasn't with someone who wasn't Justin.

I feel Brian can not give his heart away that easily so it only takes someone like Justin to do it.

That is, that's the way it is in my world, anyway.

"He's the person I should be."
So many good lines in this: I can't quote them all. And all in character.

I'm glad it's time.
Maria: BJ cuddleslave_o_spike on September 4th, 2008 07:54 pm (UTC)
Re: "He's the person I should be."
It was time for me too. :)

I had a terrible cough and cold at the time. Yuck. Ah memories...

And I always thought that Brian liked the person he became, despite him thinking that he hated it.
