Brian/Justin standalone "Justin's New Pad"  
And this is for _alicesprings who requested a post 513 reunion for Brian and Justin for the weekend.

I hope this meets up to what you wanted!

Title: Justin's New Pad
Pairing: Brian/Justin
Timeline: you know, post-513, cuz that was the request. You were paying attention, right?
Rating: PG
Summary: Brian goes to New York to see what Justin's been up to.
Warnings: Ted is in there. And cockroaches.

Disclaimer: I am not Cowlip. I am not Captain Kirk. I am not Spock. Is there anyone else you wish me to tell you I'm not?

"You're taking this starving artist thing a bit too far Justin."

"This is all I could afford Brian," Justin shot back, his face staring onto and into the blank canvas before him. "And why the hell did you bring Ted," he whispered.

"I didn't feel like driving the 'Vette all the way to New York and Ted felt it was his civic duty to leave his carbon footprint behind by driving his new Escalade here."

Justin furrowed his brow. "Since when did you become so environmentally conscience?"

"I haven't. I'm just repeating Ben and it annoys Ted."

Suddenly a crash could be heard coming from the kitchen along with an "Oh my God!" Following that, Ted came rushing out of said kitchen. "Justin," a very flushed Ted began.

"Ted," Justin said back in all seriousness.

"If cockroaches were a country, then your kitchen," Ted breathed out while pointing in the other direction, "is China. And I think I just met its last Emperor. Big nasty one," he said, scrunching his nose in disgust. "I think he was trying to set himself up as the alpha in the group. Guess he didn't know you were a bottom."

Justin gave Ted a long sideways glance. "So you guys came here for the weekend to insult my humble abode..."

"Humble abode?" Brian scoffed. "We passed humble abode a long way back. This is a dump. And what's with all the blank canvases," the man said as he surveyed the loft with his outstretched arms.

"Okay, so you came here to insult my dump and my art," Justin chuckled. "Why did you come here Brian?"

"I'll just be over here," Ted said awkwardly as he moved around the untidy loft.

"I haven't insulted your art Justin because there seems to be nothing to insult. So, what have you accomplished since you've been here?" Brian asked as he looked over the blank canvases.

"I didn't just come to New York to paint. You know that," Justin said hotly as he turned on Brian. "I came here to make contacts. Get myself out there.."

"And have you," Brian started but was then cut off by a very irate Justin.

"Zip. I've got zip," Justin snapped. "Are you happy?"

"No, I'm not. I wanted you to come here to expand your horizons, not close them off behind a concrete wall never to show the light of day," Brian remarked slowly as he held up another canvas that had started off as something and had been abandoned.

"I need to show the people something here. And the mood just hasn't been right for me to create..."

"I like this one over here!" Ted yelled out as he held up something.

Justin looked up. "That's the pizza box from Wednesday's dinner Ted!"

Brian put his hand to his temple and looked down while taking a deep breath in. "I'm just going to come out and say this. I think you need to come home."

"So," Justin shrugged, "you gleaned that, did you? That I need to come home. From my failed attempts strewn across my loft?"

"Actually, yes," Brian replied simply. "You should come home. This isn't you." Brian knew he was taking a huge risk here by confronting Justin on this. The look his young lover was giving him - that defiant look that could get him rock hard from fifty feet away - was cast in his direction.

But it was obvious what Justin needed and New York, at this moment in time, wasn't it.

"I just need..."

"What? What do you need," Brian asked as he came up behind Justin and wrapped his arm around him, "inspiration?" Brian placed a soft kiss to the nape of Justin's neck. "A muse?" Another soft kiss was placed there.

Justin leaned back into his older lover's touch while blowing out in exasperation, his hair flying up as he did so. "Yeah."

"This was good. You tried it out. You needed to do that," Brian said as he turned Justin around in his arms and looked directly at him. "But you haven't failed. This...this just isn't working for you...right now. Come home. It's okay. A man knows..."

"When to ask for help," Justin finished with a smile.

"Yeah, but you don't need help. Just a push. Come home. You can paint there to your heart's content. New York's not far. We can come here after you have something to show people and make your connections."

Besides, I miss you.

That part didn't come out but it wasn't because he was still the old Kinney.

It was just that it didn't need to be said. Justin just knew.

And he knew Justin knew when with a mischivous smile, Justin leaned over Brian while grabbing the hem of the older man's shirt. "Okay Mr. Kinney. But since you drove all this way..."

"With Ted," Brian added.

"With Ted," Justin teased, "do you want to take my mattress for one last spin?"

"No!" Ted shouted as he charged out of the kitchen. "No, no, no, no, no. Absolutely not! I have a brand new Escalade with soft leather seats. You can fuck his brains out in the back seat all the way home. I won't make any lame jokes or say anything. Just...let's go. The angry mob in the kitchen is starting to get ugly. I had to throw Justin's pizza box-slash-art work at them to distract them."

And with that Ted was out the door.

"Well, he is my ride," Brian winced. "Of course, I could fire his ass for leaving us here."

"Let me get my bag," Justin nodded as he retrieved the same backpack he arrived with when he first left for New York.

On the long way back home to the Pitts, Ted was true to his word while his two passengers became reacquainted in the back seat.

Cranking up the defrost, Ted spared a glance in his rear view mirror once and once only. He would not bring up the very satisfied smile he had witnessed on Brian's face to the man later.


Never, ever.

And with that, he turned the music up.

This is perfection!! :D I love fics where Brian comes to NY to retrieve Justin. *blowing a kiss* Now hopefully you can wipe the very black humor story from your brain, LOL.

I think the dark images are finally going away.

Oh wait...

They're back. LOL!

sevigny7sevigny7 on May 8th, 2009 10:32 pm (UTC)
It's so great to see you here - and with Brian! And Justin! And Emperor Cockroaches! And Ted, fending off the seething hoards! It was perfect, and I still love you.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
Awww. I love you too babe! *smooches*

I don't love cockroaches though...
bodleianbodleian on May 8th, 2009 10:35 pm (UTC)
This is great. I love the idea of Brian coming to get Justin but to have Ted along for the ride was a wonderful idea. You added so much humour by doing this. Loved it!!!
Maria: BJ cuddleslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
Ted is good for that sort of thing. LOL! Thank you!!!!
queenydiva: QAF by rocker_graphicsqueenydiva on May 8th, 2009 11:03 pm (UTC)
Bwahahaha, I loved it! Ted was the perfect counter to Brian and Justin's angst/lust, and the cockroaches were the finishing touch. Very nice! :D
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:28 am (UTC)
Without my comic relief (in the form usually of Ted - and external forces - this time cockroaches), I would accidentally lay the sap on thick. LOL! Thank you!
Jackie: Baby!Ojackieville on May 8th, 2009 11:21 pm (UTC)

May I just say Ted and the cockroaches was wonderful! Also Brain going to get Justin FTW! You also managed to wrap he angst/lust of B/J and the humor of Ted up in a way that is wonderful to read. Thanks!
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:32 am (UTC)
Everyone loves a little Ted.

Cockroaches are just icing on the cake. Ewwww....

FTW? I sometimes get my acronyms mixed up. Thank you though. I like to add humor in even when doing the angst. :)

Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:34 am (UTC)
Glad you liked. I was hoping this was okay with you. :)

It has been long. I agree. *sigh* I miss those days when you and the wives had started all those wonderful comms.

Thank you! *hugs*

I'm glad this was the first thing I looked at this morning. I'm going to be grinning like a fool all day.

Loved it!!! And the quote about the cockroaches (and why are they called that anyway?) made me giggle! :D
Maria: cannibal Justin - The New Face of Vealslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 04:58 am (UTC)
You have Loren! LOL!

And I'm glad that I managed to start your day with a smile. Thank you!!!

I know. *snerk* cock roaches. *double snerk*

sandiDsandid on May 9th, 2009 12:20 am (UTC)
I will stand with the rest of the group. I adore fics where Brian retrieves Justin, too. LOVES....

Ted was certainly a good choice for this piece. Well done.

Now that being said.....*gets down in groveling position*

Would you consider writing a fic that has Brian missing Justin sooooooo much but won't even consider asking Justin to come back to the Pitts. Then Justin comes home for a visit - everywhere they go some hot guy hits on Justin. Brian thinks he should change his mind. LOL
Maria: Frodo doesn't live here anymoreslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 05:00 am (UTC)
Brian really does need to go and get Justin. Yes! Cowlip? Are you listening?

Ted is always made of win for me. :)

Hmmm. I've got an idea for what you suggested. There are a few other request fics that I'm working on first though.

Thank you!!!!
rosy5000: BJ Prince/Steedrosy5000 on May 9th, 2009 12:50 am (UTC)
OMG! You made me go "AWWWWWWWW!!!!"

I'm thinking Brian took Ted just so Brian and Justin could fuck in the back seat the whole way home. lol He's smart like that. ;)
Maria: Brian Predatoryslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 04:08 am (UTC)
I like when I make people go Awww. Much better then Ewwww. :)

I was thinking the same thing. In fact, I'm thinking Brian made Ted buy the Escalade just for that reason and then there was the added bonus of Ben making fun of him. He's quite Machavalean that way.

Thank you!!!!
Lisabrianswalk on May 9th, 2009 01:12 am (UTC)
Lol, I still adore the way you write Ted! (hugs you) Yay, Like most everyone else, I never understood the urgency for Justin to leave for New York so quickly. Therefore, in my mind, I always expect Justin to falter in his first attempt. I love that Brian points that out-gently...

"This was good. You tried it out. You needed to do that," Brian said as he turned Justin around in his arms and looked directly at him. "But you haven't failed. This...this just isn't working for you...right now.

So much love!
Maria: cannibal Dan and Ronslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 04:03 am (UTC)
*hugs you tight*

I heart Ted so much. LOL!

Exactly! And you win the prize! That's exactly what I thought. Sure, Justin can go to New York. But when he was ready. Not right then! LOL! He needed to go to New York and fail at his first attempt so he could go back and better prepare or at least have tried and see what he really needed to do. And Brian being the good boyfriend, could help him see that. :)

I'm sure this is what Cowlip had in mind.

Yeah...right. *points to icon*

Thank you!!!!

Daphneduffy_60 on May 9th, 2009 02:07 am (UTC)
OMg, you had me laughing out loud. Ted is perfection in this story. And finally verbalizing what he said he would never do -- come home!

Later, my dear.
Maria: B/J cha cha chaslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:42 am (UTC)
Hey you!

Yes! Come home! Please Cowlip! Can you let Justin come home? LOL!

Ted is a hoot. :)

Thank you!

PS - The scene in your icon is the exact scene I was picturing in my fic.

I love Brian and Justin going home together- ye ha
Maria: B/J ILUslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 03:40 am (UTC)
Gotta love that. That's what they should have done at the end anyway and had them dancing together. Stupid Cowlip...

Thank you!!!
Celine: Mon amourceleste3028 on May 9th, 2009 04:07 am (UTC)
Okay, this is like the most honest post-513 i have ever read.

And i hope the Emperor has not made his way into Justin's bag *shivers*

I love Ted.
Maria: Brian and Tedslave_o_spike on May 9th, 2009 04:20 am (UTC)
Thank you. I wanted to go for honest. What really would have happened. Justin was just so not ready and Brian wasn't ready for him to go.

No. Remember? He was distracted with Justin's pizza box/art.

Ted = love.
