Title End
Author yoursweater
Rating PG-13
Characters Brian, Justin, Gus
Summary When Brian Kinney dies, he isn’t thirty one years old.

This was posted maybe...10 minutes ago? But I had to rec it. Why should you read it? Because it's written just so damn well (like all of her fics are, actually). Warning though. There's angst and a huge dose of it. Not for the light hearted.



Quote He isn’t young and beautiful anymore, and he is no longer the King of anything. He doesn’t die by overdosing on sleeping pills with a pink fedora tight around his neck, splayed across his mattress of satins and silks with a smirk on his face – finally happy to be gone, gone after so many empty years of sticking around. He isn’t anything, because he’s everything he never thought he’d be.

Title: Out From Inside
Author on LJ: bigboobedcanuck
Author's Website: None, but fic is listed in her memories.
Pairing: Brian/Justin
Warnings: Character Death
Why this must be read:

Keira's fic has been recced all over the place and for good reason. She's an amazing writer who has a way with Brian and Justin that makes them impossible not to love. This story (which she says is her last in this fandom, sadly) is set post-513 and while it is very angsty (but with a happy ending), it's still lovely and true to the characters.

Pairing: Brian/Justin
Rating: PG-13
Why you should run and read this right now :

Sometimes you read a story that is so true to the characters, you can almost convince yourself that's what really happened in canon. Set between the end of 510 and the middle of 511, it's a look at Brian and Justin that's so perfect, it makes my heart ache a little. It's the moments between the moments, as the author says, and they are sometimes the most important ones of all.

My rec at crack_van today was blacksatinrose's slowly unstitching, which has been recced here before, but I thought it was worth mentioning again.

Why you should run and read this right now :

I adore this story. Ariel is an author that carefully crafts everything she writes and the result is always something beautiful. This is set just after the events of 507 (if you've seen Season 5, you know the one) and takes three completely unrelated prompts she was given and weaves them into one cohesive story. I love her Brian in particular and the use of the second person POV gives you a fascinating look into his state of mind.

Title: Restraint
Author on LJ: ragingpixie
Author's Website: No Domestic Shit
Pairing: Brian/Justin
Rating: NC-17
Why you should run and read this right now :

The author's summary of this story is: Making bets is never in anyone's best interest.

Got your attention yet? When you're Brian and Justin, there's really only one thing any wager could possible have to do with - sex. Over a post-Babylon meal at the Diner, Emmett accuses Brian of being addicted to sex and when Justin agrees, an interesting challenge begins. Aside from having excellent character voices, the humor is sharp and wickedly funny. A great and despite the seeming lack of actual sex, very hot story.

I haven't made any recs for a while, and I've got a couple more from the same author in my last post. Yes.

Title The Plot Ends On A Friday
Author yoursweater
Rating G
Pairing Brian/Justin
Summary It’s easier for Brian to forget, to pretend the entire thing never happened.

This story is Post-513. Just a warning.

Title Ten
Author yoursweater
Rating G
Pairing Brian/Justin
Summary Justin’s ten year high school reunion ends up falling on a Friday night. He sits on the marigold yellow couch in the living room. Inhales the warm air through his nose and exhales through his mouth, feels like he’s seventeen again and nervous, debating going to Babylon just to find Brian and ask him about the prom.


Obviously, I really do love her fic. There are tons more, but only 2 this time. I have to save some for later, ya know.

Rating: NC-17
Why you should run and read this right now:

There have been a lot of post-513 stories written in the last few months but I think is one of my very favorites. Picking up five years after the finale, it sees Justin returning to Pittsburgh and the inevitable return to his relationship with Brian. But where most stories might have them running back with open arms, this makes every moment of their way back to each other real and hard, but most of all - adult. I don't want to give more away than that because every twist and turn in this story is a joy to read.

Title: Periphery
Author on LJ: redbrickrose
Author's Website: link to memories
Pairing: Justin/Daphne, mentions of Brian/Justin
Rating: R
Why you should run and read this right now:

Wait - don't cringe from the het! Just trust me, okay?

It's extremely hard to find any het fic at all in this fandom and harder still to find good het fic. Fortunately, this fits the bill perfectly. I love Daphne here, not just her interaction with Justin, but her take on the Brian/Justin relationship - a perspective that's more objective and honest than you would get from most of the other characters. Justin is spot on here as well, vulnerable but not as weak as many people portray him. An overall lovely and well done rare pairing.

Title: The New Black
Author on LJ: mojokid
Author's Website: mojokitten @ iridescentglow
Pairing: None - Brian/Jennifer friendship
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Up to Season 4 only, nothing for Season 5 at all
Why you should run and read this right now:

I have a weakness for Jennifer and it's rare to find her written so well. She's a mother who truly loves her son and loving him means she must also find a place for Brian in her life, whether she likes it or not. In these five moments we get to see a glimpse of a friendship between them that was never shown on screen, but should have been.
