Hello everyone. I am the 70 year old Mother of one girl and Grandmother of two girls. The eldest is 24 and the youngest is 23. All 3 of us moved to Pennsylvania threeyears ago for a fresh start after my living in Texas for the past 48 years. My youngest and I just moved into a place of our own once my Daughter remarried after being single for 21 years, and I couldn't be happier. I am wildly in love with Queer as Folk and Brian/Justin in particular. I'm a native Californian, although I've lived all over the Country during the first 19 years of my life. I've only been writing since August, 2007, and it has made my retirement pure Heaven. I love it more than anything. I hope my readers will enjoy my work. I truly appreciate all feedback and always respond to everything as quickly as possible. Thank you for checking me out. Hugs, Grammy
P.S. I'm a die-hard hopeless romantic, so if that is the kind of story you are looking for...with a large sprinkling of spice to go with the sweet (and don't be fooled by the grey hair) then you've come to the right place for your stories.
P.P.S. After 14 years of singular devotion to only one couple...Brian and Justin...my heart was finally captured by another (but I will never give up my first love, you can be assured of that). I am now writing fanfic for Agron and Nasir (Nagron) from the Starz TV series, 'Spartacus'. Believe me, their love is just as powerful as Britin's so I hope you'll give their stories a chance even if you don't know the show.
Here I go with my first multi-chaptered story in over 3 years. I really hope you will enjoy it. Some time ago someone suggested the idea of turning around the series plot involving the Prom bashing 180 degrees, and then seeing what might have happened if it was Brian who was Hobbs' victim rather than Justin. I found the idea intriguing, so I'm going with it. Of course there will be drama and angst, but just remember how my stories end up and take heart. So without delay, here is the beginning of a whole new light on the love story of Brian and Justin.
But first, of course, I must give my undying appreciation to my dear Judy for her beta help. And a special appreciation to the very talented and thoughtful Kim (Predec2) for the evocative banner for my story. I love you girls dearly.
Happy Valentine's Day! And what better way to return after three years absence than to offer you a romantic love story, featuring our beloved Brian and Justin. I really hope you will enjoy it. I would like to dedicate this story to three people in particular for helping me to return to fanfic writing. To Judy, my beta, for her enduring support and friendship. To Kim, for creating this beautiful banner for my story, and for providing the help I needed to continue my work. And to Bob, simply for being there whenever he is needed. I would also like to thank all my readers who have always made me feel so good about my work.

It is Justin's first Christmas away from the Pitts and Brian and neither man is looking forward to the holidays. But one man is all ready to grant them their dearest Christmas wish...if all goes as planned. I am dedicating this story to my friend Sherry for her birthday and as a special Christmas gift.
**Featured Story for September 2015**

Will this new intern change Brian's life forever, and what happens when the past comes back to haunt young Taylor? I want to thank Eka for the beautiful banner and Heather for being my beta throughout this story.
***Featured Story for March 2015***
Damn! I can't believe that it is time to celebrate my Fifth Anniversary of the day I posted my very first fanfic story. It is really true that time flies when you are having fun. LOL! Well folks, as is my custom I have written a new story to share with my beloved readers who have made these five years so special to me. I hope you will enjoy it.
For this story, I decided to answer (in my version) the question that was never fully explored on the series. We all presume that the bombing of Babylon was caused by people who hated the protesters of the Prop 14 bill. The show never actually followed through with an investigation into the bombing. I have come up with my own theory, and the fact that Brian is re-opening the club will bring the truth out. Oh, and while we're at it, the re-opening will also be slightly different than what the show presented. In my version, a certain special someone also attends much to Brian's delight. One guess as to who I'm talking about.
**FEATURED STORY MAY 2014**
Egypt in the 1920's. Tourism is up thanks to the discovery of King Tut's tomb and the Taylor family decide to spend their holiday there. It is a decision they will regret when their newly graduated son, Justin, is kidnapped by bandits. Will the handsome American businessman, Brian Kinney, be the one to come to the young man's rescue and how will it change both their lives? A huge thank you to Eka for the perfect banner and Pat for doing beta for me.
Finally did it...my very first crossover story, and my QAF muse has come back home too. So I hope you'll enjoy this new story. For those who love Spartacus (and especially Agron and Nasir) you'll know them well. This story is set during the revolt of the slaves of Rome between 73 B.C. and 71 B.C. I have done my best to be as accurate to true history as I can, but the story is based on the way history is told by the Starz series, 'Spartacus'. I've changed Brian and Justin's names slightly to fit what was used in that time period. All the names I've used for characters are accurate according to my research. At the beginning none of the four men have met and spent any time together. I promise you, that will change quite quickly. The Agron/Nasir part of the story is more canon, while the Brian (Brion)/Justin (Justinus) part of the story is certainly AU. I hope you will enjoy the blending of these two magnificent couples.
A special note of thanks to my darling Granddaughter, Amy for the banner. A very special thanks to my beta, Judy...plus I wish to dedicate this story to her. Her support and friendship has been invaluable in getting me back on track in writing stories.
I finally have a story for the 'Great Outdoors Challenge' and I hope you will find it 'hot' enough to make your Summer sizzle.
The setting is 7 months after Justin moves to New York City. He and Brian still think of themselves as a couple, but Brian's businesses and Justin's insistence on paying his own way (even for a visit back home) has kept the couple apart. Justin spends all his time painting. Daphne comes for a visit, and seeing her friend's condition, insists on taking him out for some fun. A visit to a local gay bar provides a huge surprise, as Justin unexectedly wins a vacation for two at a beautiful cove resort in British Columbia. Will he get Brian to be his companion, and what other surprise awaits Justin during his Summer holiday?
Huge gratitude to my wonderful beta, Judy, and my Granddaughter, Amy, for my banner.
Hello, everyone. Today is special to me. It marks the 7th Anniversary of the very first time I wrote and posted a fanfic story. As has become my custom, I wanted to give you something special to thank all my wonderful readers for their loyalty and support of my work over the years.
A little over a year ago, my muse abandoned me for a while and my work trickled down to almost nothing. Then another couple entered my life and my muse returned full force. To show my appreciation to both couples that inspire my work, I've chosen to write a little something about all 4 of my favorite men.
Rather than writing a story, per se, I've chosen a different format. I decided to interview Brian, Justin, Agron, and Nasir. I had only one important question to ask of each of them. Why do you love the man in your life? Thankfully all 4 men came to me and took time to answer the question in depth. I hope you will enjoy their interviews.
Huge thanks and gratitude go out to Judy, my wonderful beta, and Amy, my beautiful banner maker.
I love to let my imagination run wild for all those times we could only guess what was happening to Agron and Nasir when they weren't in a scene. So I've taken two episodes...#7 (Sacrementum) & #8 (Balance)...from Season 2: 'Vengeance' and filled in some blanks, at least the way I saw them in my mind. I hope you will enjoy them.
Many thanks to my beta, Judy for her wonderful help.
Agron has developed a firm friendship with Nasir, but it is only when he is parted from the young Syrian (and there is the very strong chance the young man could be killed) that he begins to realize there is more to their relationship than that. How his newfound feelings affect them both, and how it changes things between them, is revealed in thought and deed.
Unbeta'd for now, but will be corrected as soon as my beta is free. So please forgive any errors. Thank you, and enjoy!
When they released the video with the deleted scene between Nasir and Castus that occurred when he tried to comfort Nasir over the loss of Agron, I was inspired to write this story. It is a 3 part gap filler of that period of time right after Agron leaves, up until he returns. I hope you will enjoy my interpretation of Agron and Nasir's feelings during this period.
This is posted without beta temporarily while my beta is completing work on a professional novel. I promise to make necessary corrections as soon as I hear from her. Thank you for your patience with any mistakes I may make.
Just got the beta'd copy back so the corrections are made. Many thanks to my dear friend, Judy, for all her help.
Agron and Nasir have had a loving, trusting relationship from the moment they got together, but the honeymoon period is quickly coming to an end with the arrival of a good looking pirate named Castus. Castus has taken a shine to Nasir and isn't afraid to show it, much to the irritation of a certain German rebel. When Nasir sees how upset Agron is with Castus's presence, he promises to avoid the pirate in future. When Agron sees them together, he gets the wrong idea and, like an out-of-control battle, all hell breaks loose. What happens when Agron uses the wrong word on Nasir to show his displeasure could tear them apart. What happens next is up to Agron now.
Many thanks again to my dear friend, Judy for her beta help. I also want to dedicate this story to my fellow MW reader, Boriqua522. I was given the idea for this story by them and I am deeply grateful.
If you are a Spartacus fan you have no doubt noticed the unique necklace that Nasir wears throughout the final Season of the Series. A little research into ancient Roman history was the inspiration for my version of how and why Nasir ended up with this interesting item around his neck. Agron once again reveals his softer side whenever it involves Nasir. And for those who are not fans (yet) here's a glimpse of Nasir's necklace. And once again I owe a debt of gratitude to my wonderful beta, Judy.
Agron and Nasir have survived the final battle that quelled the slave rebellion. Decades have passed and on the Anniversary of their final freedom, the couple reflect back on memories of all the scars they endured to reach the point in their lives that they are at now.
Featured story for Thanksgiving - 2012
Brian decides to throw a Thanksgiving Day Dinner Party for all his loved ones three years after Justin has moved to New York City, but this is no ordinary party because Brian knows a number of secrets that will change everyones lives this Thanksgiving Day.
" alt="" />
Well now, I don't know about the rest of you wonderful QAFers, but the ending for Brian and Justin wasn't the only one that irritated me. I was extremely fond of Emmett, as I know so many of you folks were too. I wanted a happy ending for him, but we all know how it ended with his footballer, Drew Boyd. I got to thinking that it was time for them to have their closure too, and who better than master schemer, Brian to get the ball rolling (who can forget the way Brian set up Michael at his birthday...or even better, the way he set up Ethan and Justin at the diner when they were still secret lovers).
So here you go...Brian Kinney becomes matchmaker for Emmett and Drew. Will his plans succeed or fail miserably? Let's find out. A huge thank you to my sounding board, Lori...my beta, Judy...and my dear Amy for the banner. Enjoy!
Happy Halloween, everyone! It is time for me to offer your annual 'treat' for the holiday. This year I decided to give you another adult 'fairy' tale. This is my version of the 'Little Red Riding Hood' story. I hope you will enjoy it. I promise there are no mean 'tricks' waiting for you.
I want to thank Lori, for her invaluable help. She was a great sounding board. Huge thank you's also go out to the wonderful Judy for her terrific beta skills and my darling, Amy for the banner. I am a lucky lady.
I was watching 'So You Think You Can Dance' when a performance was given to the song 'Somebody That I Used to Know'. Bingo!!! Another inspiration for a Brian/Justin love story. Amazing how it keeps happening. LOL! Anyway, this is not a songfic. Only the title inspired me. This is a What If? story. It begins with...What if Brian got the job in New York City that was offered just before the end of Season One and left Pittsburgh behind. The story moves forward to five years later. Justin has moved to NYC after graduating from PIFA and after a year in the City, he runs into Brian at a fine restaurant. What happens then?
I want to thank my dear Granddaughter, Marika, for the evocative banner and my dear friend, Judy for her wonderful beta skills. I hope you will enjoy their reunion as much as I enjoyed envisioning it. Warmest hugs, Grammy
Justin Taylor is an up and coming artist who has lived and worked in New York City for the past seven years. Brian Kinney is an advertising executive with his own Company who also lives and works in the Big Apple. What happens when they both visit Central Park on a beautiful Spring Day? How will the day end? Read on and discover for yourself. Many thanks to Marika for the lovely banner. My beta, Judy, is still on vacation, but I'll re-post the beta'd copy as soon as it is returned to me. Thank you for your patience.
I have a new story for your weekend reading. My beta, Judy is still on a whirlwind trip after enjoying her time at the glorious QAF Rise 'n Shine Convention so this is unbeta'd temporarily. I'll post corrections asap when she is able to get some extra time in her super busy 28 hours a day. LOL!
This is my newest version of what comes after Brian and Justin part at the loft, and Justin heads off to the airport for his flight to New York City. As we all know it was Winter time. Who could forget the unforgettable scene as snow fell outside their window when they made such beautiful love together? Well, what if the snow fell so heavily that night that all flights were delayed? And what if Justin, who we all know loves to make conversation with interesting people, finds himself sharing the waiting hours with a kindly old lady (yes, I'm putting myself into this story) who also enjoys a good conversation? Where does it all lead? Read on to find out. Many thanks to my Granddaughter, Marika, for taking time out of her 4th of July celebrations with friends to provide the lovely banner.
Surprise! I know I've been away from writing for quite a while, but I have a new short story that I hope you will find somewhat worth the wait. The setting is post Season 5 by several months. Brian has developed a unique problem that he has only faced one other time. He turns to the psychologist who helped him with Justin's problem after the bashing in hopes of finding a solution. Will the good Doctor figure out the puzzle that is confronting Brian and help him solve it? I dedicate this to Lori, who had been a blessing in my present chaotic life and given me much needed incentive to get back to my writing. As always, I owe a great debt of gratitude to Judy, my beta, and Marika, my banner maker. Thanks to both of them.
One day I began wondering, what if Brian and Justin led the life of Gale and Randy. Now I had already decided not to write any RPS stories but that didn't mean I couldn't go totally AU on our beloved couple, Brian & Justin, and give them a similar (although most definitely not identical) life of their talented portrayers. Because I will borrow on occasion from Gale and Randy, I must make note that this is entirely fiction (obviously) and has nothing to do with the reality of either of these wonderful men.
Our story begins the day that actors, Brian and Justin, try out for parts in a brand new cable television series called 'Queer Folk & Family'. I hope you will enjoy suspending reality and find it fun to see what happens when these two talented actors meet and become lovers onscreen. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my beta, Judy, who is always there for me and my wonderfully talented banner maker, Nikki.
This is a holiday story that was written for a True Queer Love fanfic challenge. I had to wait until the voting was over and winners announced before I could post on other sites. Finally I can present it to my friends and readers here. I hope you will enjoy it.
This is a what if version of that period of time at the end of Season 3 and beginning of Season 4 when Justin has gone to Hollywood to help in the making of the movie, "Rage" . What if Brian couldn't take the separation from his lover any longer, especially with a New Year about to start? What would Brian do about it? I owe a great debt of gratitude to my friend, Judy for her beta help and my Granddaughter, Marika for the banner. Hugs, Grammy
Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers who are celebrating the holiday. For those who don't, I still hope you have a wonderful week full of things and people to be thankful for.
For this year's annual Thanksgiving story, we move forward in time to the second year after Justin has moved to New York City. He and Brian see each other as often as they can, but it is far too seldom for either of them. When Justin is invited to spend his second Thanksgiving away from Pittsburgh with Mel, Linds, and Gus in Canada he is happy to go thinking he'll see Brian there. Brian himself crushes that dream. But will Justin find himself having more to be thankful for than he thought he would? Read on to find out. Many thanks to Judy for her beta skills and Marika for the lovely banner.
