BJ standalone and Birthday wishes  
First off, I would like to take this moment to wish toobusy2write a very Happy Birthday!

When I was reading fic in the Spangel fandom, her story, Bent Justice completely OWNED me while she was writing it. Now that I'm out of the fandom, I noticed she started writing another Spangel WIP and all I can say is I wish I were still reading that OTP. I'm sure it's awesome!

Have a happy birthday gal! You deserve it!!! *smooches and birthday spankings*

Other news, I have not abandoned my WIP. I am working on chapter 5 as we speak. The problem was, when I was sick, I was REALLY out of it and I didn't want to post anything lame. So never fear. I am working on it. I WILL get it beta'd (I don't trust myself right now) and it'll be long...ish.

I wrote something for the icon challenge for the qaf_challenge community. The challenge was to write a fic based on the icon, BUT NOT THE SCENE IT WAS TAKEN FROM. So I chose this icon:

And here's the story. It's okay. It's nothing great but I'll post it here anyway. It's introspection. I had picked a different icon in the beginning and the story that I wrote for it was waaaayyy too crack...ish so I decided to go with traditional:

Title: What People Say
Timeline: Early Season 1
Rating: R
Warnings: Language
Summary: Brian reflects on people's views on love. Brian's POV.
Author's Notes: beta'd by the wonderful shadownyc

You found most of the people you had surrounded yourself with while growing up had the same theory, even though they expressed it in a different way.

Your mother always told you that there was no such thing as love at first sight. There was lust at first sight, but never love. Lust was the tool of the devil and only the strong of faith in the 'good' war could overcome the evil of tempting flesh.

You could understand that, being that you knew all too well about the lure of tempting flesh on first sight.

You always figured you weren't such a good soldier in God's war, as it were.

Your father always said that there was no such thing as love at first sight and that most people that thought that it was possible were full of shit.

Of course, your father didn't stop at his beliefs in love at first sight but believed that love itself didn't exist at all in this world. Only shrewish women who trapped you like a prize stag in the wild and spent the rest of their days sucking your life force out of you slowly, day by day.

Usually with a straw, he would add.

You remember the words of your coach that fateful day so long ago who said people who fall into the trap of 'love at first sight' should take a second look. Or better yet, a third and fourth. You remember how he waxed poetic as you were on your knees sucking him off, about love not existing in the world you both inhabited. You remember the words as he repeated them over and over again at each session. Love was for breeders. Love was a safety net boys and girls used to lull them into a safe sense of calm as they realized they would be with the same person forever and ever.

You wince as you realize how you've repeated the words at least once a day, almost religiously.

And as you lay Justin down on the bed, the only male to date who has seen your bed twice, the only male to date you find yourself unwilling to just 'let go,' the only male to date who's also managed to touch something deep within and although you'll never admit it to a living soul, you know it to be true.

And you look into the deep blue eyes, reflected back by the blue lights over the bed. Eyes so trusting, still filled with wonder and hope.

Eyes that held that spark of life not seen in any trick's eyes that you've had the pleasure of bedding, you realize one thing.

Your father was correct.

Most people are full of shit.

Oh that was great! and Brian and his father was right (Never thought I would say those words) but most people ARE full of shit.
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on August 23rd, 2007 02:35 am (UTC)
Yeah, his dad was right. And yes, most people are, I have to agree. I was slightly angry with my employees when I wrote this. :P

Thank you!!!!

This is a wonderful ficlet, Maria. But I'm so curious about the crack-fic that you didn't submit. Only because I'm your crack-fic whore...

So? Are you going to feed your fans' curiosity?
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on August 23rd, 2007 02:34 am (UTC)
Thank you! I might post it. You have to remember, during all of this, I was quite feverish. LOL!

And you know how I love feeding you guys! (Your curiosity that is).

I will even go so far as to say that I, myself, am full of shit, as well as other people. We all just weed out the ideas we don't like, and keep the ones we do, and call it truth.
And, as sweet and lovely and self-realizing as this story was, and IC and all, I need to be hit over the head with some crack-fic to jar me out of the rut I have dug for myself, and who better to ask this of than the queen, herself.
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on August 23rd, 2007 03:37 am (UTC)
Don't worry JJ. The next chapter of Justin's Baby is just what the doctor ordered. I promise.

I might even post the silly icon story I wrote in my delusional state. It's probably not even that good. I might have to look at it again. LOL!

I agree! Keep the stuff we like and weed out the rest. We shall find these truths to be self-evident...

See? We're so full of shit!!!

Thank you JJ.

Signed - the demented one.

Jack Kinney was right. I never thought I would say that. Yep, we are all full of shit which is one of the leading causes of global warming with all that methane gas escaping! :)

Can't wait for another chapter of Justin's Baby. I'm jonesing from some good crack.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on August 23rd, 2007 07:08 pm (UTC)
See? I knew it! It is us!!!!

I think everyone is going into Justin's Baby withdrawal. I will have to rectify that soon. :) Thanks!

Oh...that was a lovely little ficlet!

I didn't read most of the challenge fics cause i was in a pissy mood. i'm so glad you re-posted it here.

Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on August 23rd, 2007 07:05 pm (UTC)
LOL! I'm going through my flist and my email. Yes, I did see that! That would be so wonderful! I don't have an insane journal account yet but I'm thinking of going over too. It seems lj is getting rather quiet and to tell you the truth, I don't like Greatest Journal all that much.

I would love to have a permanent account. What a generous gift! Thank you so so so much!

*smooches and hugs you madly*

Sorry about the pissy mood. Glad you saw this and liked. :)

*kneels by your door*

I have no clear memory of how I stumbled in here, just OMG-gotta-come-back-when-it´s-not-5am!!
But I just had to sneakpeak and jumped on this one =D
Oh god.. the QaF-nostalgia that came over me!! *swims in it*
I really really liked this beautiful piece of Brians reflections on love.
I am also a few years late.
And will also come back for some delicious Lotrips-stalking.

*comes bearing cookies of Squee*
Maria: BJ Guh Showerslave_o_spike on March 18th, 2010 02:00 am (UTC)
Sorry I'm late with the thank yous. LOL!

I hope you've checked my other stuff out. I actually totally forgot I wrote this one. I think I was sick at the time.

I was so worried no one would like it and was surprised when it did so well. :) Thank you and like I said, hope to hear from you again. And you like the LotR RPS? Like Orlibean? Cuz that's what I write.

Nice twist!
callieskycalliesky on April 15th, 2019 08:49 pm (UTC)
Most people are full of shit. To bad he can’t admit that yet.

But this does explain where the belief came from.

Mariaslave_o_spike on April 16th, 2019 02:25 pm (UTC)
Yes, this was always my head canon on Brian based on the clues on the show.

Or as Will Graham would say, This is my design.


Thank you for reading and the lovely feedback. :)
