FINALLY they are reunited!!! What a great chapter - i thought i was going to die over all this tension with the guardians. i really love reading this story - it's just that amazing.

I was hoping I kept the tension high with the guardians. I didn't want to overdo it because it's about Brian and Justin and Brian, but I still wanted them to come across as bad Mo-fo's.

You know?

Thank you!!! :)

My god ... finally something good.

Once you finished it, I will put it together and print it out.

You felt like you were on a rollercoaster? Good. That's what I wanted!

I kept thinking it wasn't tense enough, and then it was too hokey. I need to step back from my shit sometimes. You know?

(And thank you. My beta could only check it over to make sure the story was coherent. She didn't have time to correct the grammar. Sometimes the thought comes out of my head faster than I can type. :P I will go to change before I post to Midnight Whispers.)

Thank you!!!!

God you had me so worried when I read this:
And so with that, Brian opened his eyes.
And confronted the thing in front of him.

My over-excited little brain was screaming NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! CLOSE YOUR EYES YOU FOOL, YOU'RE GOING TO DIE!!!!!!!! (see, over-excited) But then I thought, no it's okay, she wouldn't do that to us.
Phew. Thank God you didn't.
I'll be really sad to see the end of this fic but I really enjoyed the ride. And that's exactly what it felt like reading it, the best roller coaster EVER.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 02:32 am (UTC)
Nope - he needed to confront the thing in order to really confront it.

LOL! You too with the rollercoaster.

That makes me so happy to hear from people because that's exactly what I wanted to do - give people a ride they wouldn't soon forget.

And no E ticket was required...

Thank you! *smooches you*

This is delicious. Seriously. I'll be sad when it ends.
Maria: BJ cuddleslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
I know - I'll be sad when it's done too. :(

But! Everything has to end eventually.

Thank you!

Woo Hoo!!! Great!
I loved this chapter but for some reason I'm waiting on the other shoe to drop...hmmmm. LOL.
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 02:34 am (UTC)
I can tell you this - no other shoe.

But there are still loose ends to tie.

La la la la la .....

Thank you!

YAY!Our Brian is back in his world and has his Justin back!YAY!

"Is it really you Brian?" Justin whispered as he took in the disheveled man before him.

"I love you. I love you so much," Brian said as he rained kisses down on Justin's face. "I never want to be away form this again. I love you," Brian said as he crushed Justin to him yet again.

Justin stepped back from Brian. "Jo! You gave us the wrong Brian!" Justin said in a panic.

"I'm quite certain this is the correct one," Jo said and chuckled.

LOL!That was funny.

And you had me nearly into tears with this line:

And he could see it. It was there. Brian did love him.


Don't worry....happy tears!

I'd say that Mr. Taylor was brave enough for both of them."

Michael looked at Jo and smiled. "Fuck! He's always had enough for all of us."

Yeah,Michael is soooo right!

"Brian!" Michael yelled as he came running over. "Jesus! You're okay. Shit, all that screaming and moaning...."

"Yeah, and that was just from monkey boy," Joe said as he pointed to Michael.

Bwahahahahaha....That's a good one!

He laughed.

And you wrote a great chapter ending for both worlds.I love it!

So...one chapter to go?Arghhhh!!!
First you made me an addict and then you have only one fix left for me?
Ahhh...I know...you did this on purpose,right!
If I'm going into withdrawal after this I have to reread this whole thing in order to satisfy my addiction!
Ohhhhh...you are so evil...but I love you nevertheless!!


Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 02:37 am (UTC)
I had to have Justin question the ILU at least once. Really. LOL! Couldn't resist. Well, you know me.

And yay!!!!! Brian is with Justin! Woo hoo!

And you have a Squee marquee - neat!

Yes - Michael is right - and he can't (and no one else for that matter) dispute it.

So I'm eveil for keeping you guys going and now I'm evil for ending it?

I'll just have to write something else.

*grins evilly*

Thank you - I always LOVE LOVE LOVE your fb!!!

Oh...and you owe me cheesecake. :)

I loved this chapter!!!I loved the way Brian controlled his fear by thinking of Justin. And I loved the way the guardians were thinking. It sounded like something Stephen King could have written.
The reunion of Brian and Justin made me cry and laugh at the same time. And of course, like everybody else, I especially loved this line:
"Jo! You gave us the wrong Brian!" Justin said in a panic.

I'm happy that you promised another chapter so I don't have to cry (yet) that it's over.

Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 02:40 am (UTC)
You know, I was wondering how to pen the guardians. I thought about going totally funny at first, almost like Joe, and then decided, no. That was wrong.

I needed to be serious and I had to think like someone who was ancient and arrogant.

Wow! Stephen King? Cool. I was shooting for something like that.

Yep, evefryone liked that line. It was so Justin at that moment.

Don't cry yet. It's not quite over!

Thank you Susanne. I love your fb! You've been there at each chapter and I really do appreciate it.

mikaila86mikaila86 on May 1st, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
It was so gooood! I loved it thayt finally Brian face his demons! I can't wait the next cap when Brian and Justin will be alone.
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 02:41 am (UTC)
Oh yeah - reunion time at the loft is coming a long with other stuff. :)

And yes, Brian needed to face his demons, literally.

Thank you!!!

Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 08:52 pm (UTC)
No! It'll be a happy happy day! :)

Then I can write other stuff. Okay, yeah, it is always sad when I come the end of something I like. :(

Thank you for that though. :)

J'rais.....?: Brian and Justin kissherewego15 on May 1st, 2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
I am so happy that I started reading this before you finished!

Michael pushed Justin to the ground and fell on top of the boy, shielding him from whatever was to come.
That is such a wonderful description! One of my favorite things in the show was when Justin and Michael were there for each other.....like brothers :)

"I think...I think I do. Did you meet...Justin?" Michael asked trepidly.

Brian laughed. "I bet that was all he talked about. Yeah...yeah I did." Brian put his hands on his temple

Hehe! Yea basically :p

There is only one chapter left? HMMMM
btw: I haven't heard of your restaurant, but I am rarely up by the pass anymore. I should come for a visit. :)

Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 08:55 pm (UTC)
I am so happy that I started reading this before you finished!

Me too! :)

Yes! I loved when Michael and Justin were very brother-like - like when Michel came to talk to Justin in his old room about Brian going to NY. Love it!

Only one chapter and an epilogue. Yep. If you do come up (most people come up for the Snoqualmie Falls or the Snoqualmie River), come on Sunday before noon. I'll get you some of our famous fries.

Thank you!!!! :)
lady_erzulie on May 1st, 2007 08:41 pm (UTC)
I'm so happy...I think i have an idea about what will happen with the other Brian in the conclusion..but not so sure...real feedback later. i am so drained.
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 08:56 pm (UTC)
You're drained?! This chapter was like giving birth! LOL!

*dons Jo voice*

Oh, you think you know, do you? Hmmm...

Thank you!!!! *hugs*

I just started reading this fic this weekend after seeing Xie's journal entry about it. I neglected everything else just to get through the chapters. This isn't the kind of fan fic I usually read, but I'm so glad that I did. Incredible story...what a creative mind you have!
I judge fan fic just like I judge a movie. If I leave a theater feeling changed, I know it was a good movie. Your fic had the same effect on me. I can't wait to read the last chapter, although I'll be sad that it's over. I hope to read more from you in the future!
Maria: BJ cuddleslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:00 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, Xie's entry. LOL! I was sick with an ear infection and then I get up after like 24 hours of sleep and see the entry. She was most insistent I finish this! Heee!

Anywho, I'm glad you gave it a chance. Yes, I tend to write things that are quite unconventional. I'm the one writing the cannibal crack!fic, so there ya go. No gruesomeness, just insanity.

Wow! That's some positive fb if ever I heard it! I know what you mean about feeling changed after you watch a movie. A movie really needs to move me and give me a different view point for me to feel good about wasting 2 hours of my time. It makes me all kinds of happy to hear you say that about my fic. Very happy. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

Don't worry - I'll write more. You can always check out my memories too.
