Hey there! Loved how this ended...I really enjoyed reading this. Are you planning on writing anymore fics in the near future or do you need a break?? =)
Maria: Angst BJ Not Letting Goslave_o_spike on May 10th, 2007 09:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Glad you had a good time reading! :)

As for any more fics in the near future? I do have some ideas that I want to get out in my head and see what I could do with them. I might even put Joe in one of them. I do think I need a break but everytime I think that, I start writing again. :P

I could email you the doc. I have a Mac but I can save it as a word doc. If you could sit tight for a few days, I'll email it to you.

Thank you! I've loved all your fb and your pimpage. This is really the only acknowledgement we get as fanfic writers so we relish every bit we can get.

So thank you again! And I'm so glad you loved it all (including the ending) and were along for the ride! *hugs you*

i just read this entire story in one sitting and i'm so glad i waited till it was done because i would have had a major heart attack if i read it as a wip.

bravo! it was incredibly riveting and your storytelling was brilliant.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 10th, 2007 05:18 pm (UTC)
LOL! Yeah - most people WERE having a hard time waiting between updates!

Riveting and brilliant? *blushes*

Thank you very much and I'm glad you read and enjoyed so much!

Ahhh Domestic bliss
It was about being joined so perfectly, so closely, that nothing, no matter what, could come between the two of them because it was at that precise moment, that they were one.

And Brian didn't care one wit how lesbian that sounded.

Perfect end. Thank you for the wonderful fic. Hugs and love from me. Lili
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 10th, 2007 05:17 pm (UTC)
Re: Ahhh Domestic bliss
Awww - thank you. I thought everyone needed a perfect ending after everything! LOL!

Thank you so much for all your great fb along the way Lili. I just loved it!

*hugs you tight*

Now it's all good!!
You've taken us on a roller coaster ride with this fic and this last *sniffs* chapter was a great ending to a great story.I loved every word of it and I really adore your writing skills!


Oh...in an earlier comment you've mentioned that you're planning to write something new with Joe in there ...well,that would be fucking great!

Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 10th, 2007 09:27 pm (UTC)
Awwww - thank you. Now you're going to make me cry. *sniff sniff*

I hate the fact that this has ended too. I enjoyed posting it so much just as much as you guys loved reading it.

But now the ride is over. Please remove the restraining harness and exit to your left.

*sniff sniff*

And yeah man! I am so bringing Joe back! You fucking know it!!!! :))

Tita, I have loved all your fb so much. Seriously! And then you tried to bribe me with virtual cake and everything! I'm glad you came along for the ride. Thanks again.

*hugs you madly*

Great job with this fic! I really liked how you did the cliff hangers at the end of each chapter. That's not easy to accomplish and you pulled it off each time. Go take a well-deserved rest now.
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 10th, 2007 09:25 pm (UTC)
LOL! Thank you but I don't know about the rest. I already have something planned.

And the cliffies! Oh lord! Those were so much fun to do even though I knew I was going to get flack for it!

Thank you again and I'm so glad you enjoyed! :)

Hating you makes me all warm inside.: b/j 401 OTPhappier_bunny on May 12th, 2007 04:53 pm (UTC)
I just finished. This was a really fun read. I must say I feel horrible for not!Brian but I'm so happy that real!Brian and Justin were reunited.

Adorable fic with scary guardians and freaky trees oh and who could forget Steve buscemi. ROFL.

*pats you on the back* Congrats on finishing and thanks for the ride!
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 13th, 2007 12:20 am (UTC)
You're very welcome.

And thank you! I think not!Brian will be okay. Life can be like that but at least he's better for all this.

And I would never not reunite Brian and Justin. LOL!

Steve Buscemi, you mean Joe, will be appearing in my next WIP only he'll be mortal, but still Joe. Thank you Bunny!

Maria, thank you for this wonderful and educational story. You know I was afraid you would give the other Brian "his version of Justin". Beside fear I also felt a pinch of jealousy at that possibility. Can I say for myself I'm normal? It was a great relief for me when I finally reached and read that dialogue scene between Jo and Joe.

"He doesn't have his own little Sunshine though," Joe mocked.

"No he doesn't. Only the other Mr. Kinney does. No matter where this Mr. Kinney goes, he won't find his own Justin. But he found someone just as important."

"Oh don't say it," Joe said shaking his head.

"He found himself," Jo said, ignoring Joe.

Amazing! So fucking true!
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 13th, 2007 12:18 am (UTC)
Nope, I couldn't give other Brian another Justin or a boyfriend or something like that. That would have been a cop out and I just don't do that.

This is life. Life doesn't always give you what you want. People can't always find their soulmate but they can make themselves a better person and that's what I wanted to show. That not everything was sad, Brian was still better off.

And our Brian worked too hard before all this happened to become a better person ALL ON HIS OWN. He deserved Justin.

Thank you so much for seeing this and thank you for reading and commenting and I'm so glad you enjoyed my little story. :)
maronimaroni on May 13th, 2007 02:04 pm (UTC)
Nice, very nice. Cant wait for your next one. You've got a new fan!
Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 13th, 2007 10:10 pm (UTC)
Yay! I love new readers (and fans) of my stuff!

Thank you and I'm planning a new story and it actually has the Joe character in it. Thanks again!!!
sherebissherebis on May 15th, 2007 04:18 am (UTC)
Very nice, very entertaining story.... I was riveteed... loved the original characters and the mythos that was slightly, slowly revealed. Great stuff... thanks for sharing.

Maria: Angst BJ Togetherslave_o_spike on May 15th, 2007 06:21 am (UTC)
Thank you! Yeah, I wanted to slowly expose all the little mysteries along the way. I don't like stories where they explain everything to you at the very beginning.

Thank you again! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. :)
girloftheburbs: Mischievous Gusgirloftheburbs on May 17th, 2007 11:55 am (UTC)
I loved, loved this fic... So many wonderful moments, snarky dialogue, and a happy ending with our boys!! Adored Jo/Joe and Sabah, his wife, and most of all, Sabah's mother!! :D She should team up with Debbie and Jennifer, LOL!!

I hope you will take a nice rest, then write another story! :D
Maria: Angst BJ Not Letting Goslave_o_spike on May 17th, 2007 11:22 pm (UTC)
Actually, I think Debbie might fear competition from Nina! LOL!

Rest? What is that? I already have the next one planned out!


I love the fact that you gave me fb all along the way. It was so much fun and let me know which parts you liked. Thanks again!!! :)
