YEAH...Brian is back with his Justin where he belongs.
I am happy now...but also sad because there is just one more chapter left.
Can't wait to read how their lives will change.
This story was an emotional roller coaster ride.I enjoyed every chapter.
You did an amazing job...thanks!

But what will I do know for my daily fix? LOL

I know - the end is coming. :( I will be sorry when I can't write anymore of this.

There's the rollercoaster analogy again. I LOVE THAT!!!! That's what I wanted. LOL!

Don't worry - I'll write more stuff, you know me.

Well, you never know what'll come up next (you know, mermaid!Kip or dildo armies).

Thank you! *hugs you*

I have time this morning so I'm able to savour every word. I loved that our Brian used Justin as his strenght to get through the portal. I loved the fact that they both laughed when they were back in their own worlds. I loved the whole thing, of course.
I'm looking forward to the conclusion and then I am going to really enjoy myself by rereading the whole story in one sitting.
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:04 pm (UTC)
Yes, Justin has always been Brian's strength. So I proved it. :)

And they had to laugh. They just confronted a guardian. I mean, come on!

And LOL! Another one rereading it. Several people said they were going to - like watching The Sixth Sense again, catching everything.

Thank you. I've loved your fb throughout this. :)

That was made of awesomeness!
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:05 pm (UTC)
Hee! Sounds like you're channeling Joe. Thanks pet!

And you know, that icon of yours gives me ideas for my next story. :)

So great! Love it. I can't wait for chapter 25!

He didn't even care how bad Brian smelled.

Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:07 pm (UTC)
You have to admit, Brian was pretty ripe right about now. :)

Last chapter coming soon. Thank you! :D

Yay, Yay, Yay!!!
Very good. I don't have enough superlatives.

Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:07 pm (UTC)
LOL! That pretty much sums it up!

Thank you!

I love it, after a very bad day this just made it better

Well, I'm glad I could help. :)

Thank you!

I love it. And I'm also enjoying, tremendously, the understory in the Comments, where DramaQueen Xie is imploring you to finish this fic, and you are graciously saying, "It will come, in its own time," and Xie is getting frantically more frantic, and you are mellow, and finally you give us the big bang, and Xie says she's falling into bed, without giving you feedback. And now you're tapping your foot...waiting...
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:10 pm (UTC)
LMAO!!!! Yeah, the fact that she devoted a post to it pretty much says it all. LOL!

Glad you loved! Thank you. *hugs you*

Last chapter coming...:)

Michael pushed Justin to the ground and fell on top of the boy, shielding him from whatever was to come.

You can't believe how much I love that Michael did that.

He was given a glimpse of what he could become, and his parents were wrong.

He could become a man who was worthy of love, and who could love in return.

And he could say that.

And so with that, Brian opened his eyes.

And confronted the thing in front of him.

I'm happy that Brian is going back for all the right reasons. For Gus, the girls, Michael, Justin, Brian and himself.

"Holy...Mother...fucker," Brian gasped. *snort* (I think that was from a movie?)

If this thing thought it was scary, it had nothing over Brian having come face to face with Justin's grave. So true. *hides a sniffle*

Wow, Jo and Joe are older than the Guardians? Cool.

And of course, everyone favorite line...

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

I'm all emotional, hanging on the edge of my seat, and you throw that out there!

Brian reveled in the glow of the men before him. Never again would he take for granted what he had in these two men, his lover and soulmate, and his best friend and brother.

Oh,love it, love it. Refering to them as his soulmate and his brother. Squee!

"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.

Oh, yeah, this Michael needs the new improved Brian in his life.

As he slid the door open, he took in the state of his living space.

"Oh fuck," he groaned.

Hey, I finally saw something coming! Nice ending for an exciting chapter. I'm kinda sad that there's only one left.

REALLY enjoyed this one.

Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:19 pm (UTC)
Hey you!

After everything that happened, I think Mikey wanted to make sure Brian had Justin to come home to. LOL! (That and I like the idea of how Michael thought of Justin as the little brother he never had).

Yes, I felt that part of the reason that AU Brian could confront the guardian was because he knew why he was going home and for who.

Actually, no that wasn't from a movie. I just placed myself in the same position as Brian and I totally imagined him saying that.

Cuz...you know...I would. :)

Yep, Jo and Joe are older. Well, the last chapter and epilogue is coming...

Oh come on, you know Justin would have to say something like that...well, in one of my stories. :P

And that's what they are to Brian - Justin is his soulmate and Mikey is his brother (GOT THAT YOU BM SHIPPERS?!) LOL!

And you saw that coming? See? You've been reading too many of my fics. :)

I love that you really loved this chapter. This one was like giving birth...seriously. *wipes forehead* It really had to come together.

Thank you. Seriously, and with many hugs and kisses, thank you. :)
Daphneduffy_60 on May 2nd, 2007 01:16 am (UTC)
Fabulous chapter. You certainly did not disappoint with the emotion and heroics. Well done.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:20 pm (UTC)
Why thank you. That pretty much says it all.
My Flame Burns Bright: BJ - Never let  you gosuch_a_steph on May 2nd, 2007 01:18 am (UTC)
Oh, how perfect *sigh*
I knew that Brian would say those words, how could he not after all that he had been through. And Justin knew. He saw it in his eyes and he knew. *sighs again deeply*

And as for other Brian, I'm looking forward to seeing him fix the wrongs that the lack of Justin created. I think the future looks bright for all concerned.

And as for you, Maria, this highly imaginative story so intricately woven with canon would be one of my all time favorites. I can't thank you enough for writing it *smooches madly* I look forward to the conclusion ♥
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:23 pm (UTC)
*sighs with you*

I get all choked up all over again when I imagine having to write that scene.

Yeah, so I'm a romantic...

And yes! The future does look bright for AU Brian! Seriously. :)

*hugs you tight and plants kisses on you too*

Thank you. One of your all-time favorites?

*is glowing*

I can't wait to see how the other Brian changes his life. m :)
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:24 pm (UTC)
Yep - more to come in the next chapter about that.

I think your Yay! says it all. :)

Thank you!!!
tawny: bj-hugtawny_7 on May 2nd, 2007 02:57 am (UTC)
I'm so glad they're both back where they belong!

I loved Justin's reaction to Brian's I love you! Actually I loved the whole chapter.

Now...I hope we'll get a glimpse of the 'other' Brian's live a little in the future...to see if he was able to make those changes.

And of course...we need more of Brian/Justin's reunion!!!
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:27 pm (UTC)
Yep - that is the only place they belong - together!!!

More of BJ in the final chapter (of course - Pfft!) and AU Brian and hey! Even Jo and Joe. :)

Glad you've enjoyed! Thank you evry much. :)

Maria: Angst BJ Not Letting Goslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:28 pm (UTC)
Yay! Smiling throughout is good. Very good. :)

Your welcome! And thank you. :)

You're a fucking genious I swear it! I love it I laughed out loud I got misty eyed more than once (but I did manage not to cry) Oh thank the Jo-e's they AND you have done it and now I am a happy little SATURN. I can't wait till the next chapter. Man it's just such a relief for them to be back where they belong but I think the best parts were one... The way they were both (Brian's That is) going on and on about how strong Justin is and I have to agree and with how much courage he gave to both of them so perfect. And then number two is of course Drum roll please! Jo you gave us the wrong Brian! Oh my laugh out loud there! Okay such a great chapter and I really can't believe how relieved I am Thank you so much for such a quick update my little heart couldn't take the wait........SATURN
Maria: Angst BJ Not Letting Goslave_o_spike on May 2nd, 2007 09:30 pm (UTC)
Re: Genious!
It's okay to cry. Seriously. I've ran the gamut with this one. Yes! Justin is indeed brave and strong. I mean, seriously, how can anyone say otherwise. And yes! He did have enough for both of them (and as Mikey admitted to Jo, enough for ALL of them.)

LOL! Can't you see Justin wondering if he got the wrong Brian when Brian started bringing out the ILU's?

Thank you Saturn. Thank you. :)
