I think I've needed a Dr. Frank-N-Furter icon this whole time.
Beautiful writing as usual. What more can I say that I haven't already said? This is definitely one of my top 5 fics of all time. Thank you!
And I will hope that your RL gets a little more bearable. This was so nice to come home to after a long long day full with my 5yr old nephews birthday party.
The little pirates were soooooo exhausting, and this chapter, even if I'm still dying for more was more than a little refreshing to my day.
Much love, Rory

Okay so it's 3 in the morning and I should've probably gone to bed about an hour ago but what can I say I was into this story I just found and then when I finally after four days finished it had to come see if you'd gotten a new chapter out cause you know I foam at the mouth for them. Wow the mental picture that must've projoct Yikes. But anyways I was so thrilled to see a new chapter but I have to say THAT'S where you're going to leave it!? I mean come on that's cruel and unusual punishment. I mean seriously what did we ever do to you? Okay getting on with the review! I loved that you went back to the diner before Bri left cause yeah we so needed another Teddy scene and just the way that Brian really could've cared less what they thought of anything he did and with him going on and on about going home. Plus the added bonus of telling have a nice life. It was just priceless. And the way Teddy said I have no idea I'm just sticking to what I know... Shit how fucking characteristic is that. I loved it. And Brian with his raged appearance I was just reading it and I have a tendancy to have what I read literally playing in my head and I was just loving every minute of it. But yeah I think for me it was the diner scene fighting with the Joe and Monkey Boy scene. Shit how I loved that one how Joe caught him on so much shit was just hilarious to say the least. Oh and the fact that you put in the Very funny very funny so funny I forgot to laugh! So childish and so fitting of Michael to have such a lame come back. I like our Mikey better (wow never thought I'd say that in any form) But anyways I do and the fact that he slaps Justin upside the head when they're told that Brian is more than ready to come home and in fact threatened bodily harm if he wasn't brought back was just smile city for me. To know that Justin knows now that he is wanted and God now that Brian knows just how much he needs and ultimately wants to be with his Justin and the fact that Justin was willing to forego either Brian getting hurt was so perfect and Justin that it made me want to say see that's what I'm talking about and in the end it gave the other Brian the courage to do what has to be done something that I really thought was going to be harder to do but in the end I see that he really has had the worst of it I think cause as you said at the end of his part.... Looking into the blue eyes he would never see again. It didn't matter what these guardians looked like, because a glimpse at them would never be as scary as the glimpse he was given into a life he could've had with Justin and all that brought with it just to have it taken away. God how fucked is that! I mean it is just a horrid thought. Cause even if Bri had a hard time without Justin he gets to come back and have him with him for the rest of his life. (Right? Tell me I'm right!) Now I know you promised a happy ending for both sides but Mikey was right when he said that Justin was like he was made for Brian because that was exactly it. Justin is made for Brian so I guess now I am just wondering what the hell could come that would fill that place for the other Brian? I just don't see it. But ohhh I can't wait to see what happens with the guardians cause I noticed something Joe forgot to tell our Brian to not look at the guardians so I am now scared shitless thank you very much and I just can't wait for everything to play out and for our loving wonderful couple to be back in each others arms no matter how smooshy that sounds. Hehehe. As always it's been a pleasure to read and watch in my head and now I will go to bed and lye awake thinking of all the possibilities...........SATURN
Maria: Angst BJ Missing Youslave_o_spike on May 1st, 2007 06:25 pm (UTC)
Yeah, could you see Brian not giving a rat's ass about how he was dressed or what he looked like? LOL!

Yes, Joe would be the one to catch immature!Mikey on his shit (and you're right - I like mature!Mikey better, the one in the right world).

And yes, other Brian has grown quite a bit - to finally be able to do the things he couldn't have done before. And it's really like a chess game. This piece can't move until its in the proper position and well, you get the picture.

And yes, Joe didn't tell Brian to close his eyes. And, yeah, Justin was made for Brian, or other Brian thought that, because Justin was made for Brian, by Brian. See? *shakes head* I'm chanelling Ted here.

And as for chapter 24 - well, it's up NOW!!!! Yay! Thank you for the fb! :)

Okay ... and now I'm sitting there wondering why ...

where's the end?
Crap, those cliffhanger are killing me.

Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on May 1st, 2007 06:26 pm (UTC)
Well, chapter 24 should resuscitate you! LOL!

And it's up now!!!!

Thanks Sam!

I know I've already squeed enough to lose any claim I had left on my own dignity but there's more. I can't stress enough how much I love Joe. Seriously. He turns me into a grinning idiot and I love him all the more for it. My favorite parts... The entire thing actually, but these few bits in particular:

"What do you know about this thing, Teddy?" Emmet asked.

"I don't know anything. I'm just going with what I know," Ted shrugged.

Yay for the thing.

"Shut up, both of you!" Brian yelled. "God! It's like geek in stereo!" Brian rubbed his temples.

The whole 'monkey boy' exchange had me literally laughing out loud and holding my eyebrows down.

"This is very touching. Can we fucking get to it now, before I spew all over my stylish yet affordable shoes?"
I'm sure you can guess why this part made me happy. :o)

I'm really enjoying Brian's determination to get back and the fact that he is desperate for all the right reasons. He isn't going home just because things are so crappy in this parallel world, he's going because he has finally realized how much he loves Justin. It's also making me feel really bad for the Other Brian, I hope you have a plan to make him happy too. Give him a ray of sunshine of his own, even if it can't be Justin shaped.

I have a list of my favorite BJ authors, you are on it.
Hope you feel better soon!

Yes! At last!! I'm really looking forward to the conclusion of this wonderful fic. I'm curious as to how other Brian will face his old life. Following this story has been an absolute delight. ♥
Maria: Angst BJ Missing Youslave_o_spike on May 1st, 2007 06:33 pm (UTC)
Well, after chapter 24, which is UP NOW BTW, there'll be one more chapter.

Other Brian? Well, you'll see.

Thank you and hugs to you!!!
pye_wacket: SHIT!pye_wacket on April 30th, 2007 12:21 pm (UTC)
now what would make me think that you were going to stop there? *screams* you do this to us everytime.......but it's so fuckin worth it! this doesn't mean it's almost over does it? NO PLEASE SAY IT AIN"T SO!! PLEASE
Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on May 1st, 2007 06:36 pm (UTC)
I do do this everytime. I know.

But chapter 24 is up now! Yay!

And after 24, there'll be one more. I know - it's sad when something is over.

angela2222 on April 30th, 2007 01:48 pm (UTC)
me tooo just like all the above!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on May 1st, 2007 06:36 pm (UTC)
Oh! You too, huh?!?! LOL!

Well, never fear - chapter 24 is up! Yay! Thanks!
Bluemchenkaffee: lovebluemchenkaffee on April 30th, 2007 04:55 pm (UTC)
I knew it!!! I knew you would stop writing at the point I started biting my nails and tearing my hair. ;)
I really loved this wonderful chapter. Justin was so brave offering that he would go and Brian admitted he was scared. The other Brian had learned a lot in the world of our!Brian.
I hope both Brians will be okay.Maybe you can find a way for the other Brian to be happy ,too, because he deserves it.
Can't wait for more. (I guess all my comments on this story end with this sentence)

Maria: Angst BJ Fighting for usslave_o_spike on May 1st, 2007 06:38 pm (UTC)
I'm kind of predictable in that way. Justin would of course, keeping him in character, would offer himself up.

And yes, to say other!Brian learned a lot would be an understatement.

And don't worry - because chapter 24 is up now! Thanks!!!
