QAF Drabble B/J "Lightbulbs"  
Hi! Just a little drabble/ficlet thingie.

Title: Lightbulbs
Author: Maria
Pairing: B/J
Timeline: mid-Season 1 (after Justin moved in with Deb)
Summary: Sometimes one needs the Brian Kinney-manual in order to understand Brian-speak.
Disclaimers: I don't own the boys or Cowlip (if I did, I would have cut off their allowance).
Warnings: mild language.

"Deb?! Vic?! Where are you guys?" Brian was yelling as he was opening the front door and walking into Deb's house. Michael followed close behind.

"Shit!" Debbie exclaimed with one hand on her hip while popping her gum. "Where's the goddamn fire?"

"What's going on?" Vic asked while running down the stairs.

"Your front door was unlocked. Shit Debbie! You need to be more careful. You have stuff," Brian was saying as he waved his hand in the general direction of the room "that's valuable and needs...protecting." As Brian said this, he started scratching the back of his head while looking down at the floor.

Debbie, Michael and Vic looked at each other and then back at Brian. "What," Debbie started waving her hand around the room mirroring Brian before "stuff?"

"You know...stuff," Brian replied. Brian then repeated himself by exasperatedly saying "just...Stuff!"

"Well I better go and hide the Waterford, oh sister of mine," Vic snickered.

"And, I'll go and get the Picasso and Monet from the upstairs' bath," Debbie said in a haughty voice. Both Vic and Debbie started snickering.

"And I'll take Ma's fine jewels and Vic's Rolex and put them somewhere safer," Michael said while putting his hand on Brian's shoulder.

While the three of them were having a good laugh at Brian's expense, Justin came down the stairs finishing off what looked like had been a large sandwich.

"Hey, wassup. Ho Bran?" Justin said around a mouthful of sandwich.

"Sunshine honey, don't talk with your mouth full," Debbie admonished.

"Well if that were the case, I could actually get him to shut up once in awhile," Brian said while looking at Justin. Justin stuck his tongue out at Brian. Brian scowled then smiled back at him.

Debbie and Vic looked at Brian and Justin then looked at each other. Brian was pretty sure he could see the little lightbulbs going off above their heads.

"I'm sorry Brian. We'll make sure to lock the doors from now on," Debbie said in all seriousness.

"Yeah," Vic continued "we'll make sure to keep all our 'stuff'...safe."

Brian let the tiniest of smiles cross his face.

"What," Michael screeched "Stuff?!"

Unfortunately for Brian's best friend, the filament on that lightbulb would be forever dim.

Feedback is welcome.

Bwhahaha!! Perfect ending. Very, very cute. Gotta love Brian-in-denial.

Yee haw! You read my story and you liked it! (I've been reading your current WIP "Negation" and love it so I value your opinion very highly).

I'm always trying to figure out how to show my disdain for Michael without actually going into "anti-Michael" or "Mikey-hate" mode.

I don't know if you actually saw it, but one post before this one is a story I wrote regarding my feelings about Cowlip and the fandom (yeah, it's a fic but it's a parody), in case you're interested.

I so love Vic and Deb - I can imagine them doing that.

Yeah and we all know about Mikey....

Aww..so sweet!
I'm three episodes into the series now. Yay! :)

Thank you. And I think you just finished watching my all-time favorite ending to an episode, epi 103. I love that whole scene where Justin gets Brian to reclaim him.

I wrote another story for the QaF fandom right before this one - if you love my snarky side, then this one is right up your alley BUT DON'T READ IT YET - it contains major spoilers for Season 1 and Season 2.

This has been a Public Service Announcement.

I love this side of Brian, it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, and well not much can something like that. I also can't help but love the way you write Mikey. He really is pure idiocy......SATURN
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on June 5th, 2006 07:39 am (UTC)
This is fun. It's like I'm chasing you around my LJ. Tag, you're it!

I never know where you'll turn up next. Yeah, I like this side of Brian too. It's very real yet very protective. You see it alot in S1 and S2 where Justin is concerned.

And Mikey - so not my character. I refuse to write him as evil, but stupid and dim and unaware is okay (unless it's my AU cannibal crack!fic and he's well...he's still stupid and dim but also kinda crazy.
SATURNsaturn0432 on June 5th, 2006 07:44 am (UTC)
I must admit that I have written an evil Mikey, but the writers of QAF made me do it. I was writing Accomplshed Goals as I was watching S2 and S3 and I was just so sick of his shit I wanted nothing more than to kill his ass. Which I must say I held back on. But yes I do think that a dim witted Mikey is the best portrayal. I can never resist it.

As for being all over the place I can't help it I just found you so I am just going through all of your stuff. But I am about tag you somewhere else so just hold on......SATURN
Maria: money shotslave_o_spike on June 5th, 2006 07:48 am (UTC)
Well you'll really love what I do to Mikey and the whole gang and all the other bit characters that have popped up over the last 5 years in my series.
SATURNsaturn0432 on June 5th, 2006 07:50 am (UTC)
From what I see of your writing I have no doubt I will love what ever you come up with. It's all very well written and with such wit. I love it.....SATURN

Yeah, "dim bulb man" he is. Thanks
midnightinkingwords on September 2nd, 2006 10:39 pm (UTC)
Remember the email you sent you sent me, I don't think I've ever read your stuff before. That's so bad of me. And the only fics I won't read is mpreg(can't get into it) and body swapping(too confusing). Read this and loved it. Too sweet!
Maria: BJ Sex Take 2slave_o_spike on September 4th, 2006 11:57 pm (UTC)
mPreg? Pfft! I hate that shit! I want to start a conversation about it at the coffeeclub because I'm really interested as to why people want to do it.

Body swapping is very confusing and was very hard to write but it was a plot bunny offered up by _alicesprings and I had to write it - it's more crack!fic like that anything else.

I love showing Brian cares without showing Brian cares.

No truer or funnier statement was ever said! lol
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on September 14th, 2007 03:53 am (UTC)
Yep. Tis very true.

But he's a good monkey. :)

Thank you!

Yea, Mikey definitely leaves a big carbon footprint. He's all heat and little light. And Justin is the Precious.
Maria: BJ copulatingslave_o_spike on September 4th, 2008 02:07 pm (UTC)
Re: Heehee
Like a trip through memory lane...

This was the first fic that got me really noticed. :)

I came up with it when I was changing a bulb in one of my sconces. Mikey is so easy - we all have his number.

Thank you! :)

Brian let the tiniest of smiles cross his face.

Aww, he knows they're onto him, and he didn't freak out.

Sweet and funny. Good fic!
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 8th, 2009 04:24 am (UTC)
Thank you. Sorry this was so late. I checked my mail on my daughter's laptop and forgot to do anything about it. LOL!

Yeah, Brian knew everyone knew, he just didn't want them to think that he knew.

You know?
lindtti: B/J lovelindtti on April 14th, 2010 09:56 am (UTC)
OMG! I haven't laughed so hard in a while. I was giggling from the moment Brian said that they had "stuff" to protect and ended up LOLing at the last line! Poor Michael! I could so see his face!

It was a really wonderful read! Thank you sooooooo much for sharing and brightening my day! *mwah* ♥!!!

*still giggling*
