    Summary

    It’s funny how life works sometimes -- in cycles, repeating the same themes in different ways with different situations. Leaving it up to us to recognize a familiar situation and call on our past experience to get through it.

    But sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees.
    ***
    Justin decides to make a huge transition in his career, but things are not always what they seem.

    Summary

    At the words “blonde kid” the guys looked at me in alarm. Justin was 27, not exactly a kid anymore, but yeah he’s going to be described as “that blonde kid” for the rest of his life and that’s unfair, particularly to those of us who age like regular mortals.

    Justin and Brian are back in Pittsburgh for a special milestone and something goes very wrong.

    Takes place 3 years and change after “Family Planning.”

    Part I of III, possibly IV.

    Summary

    I tucked away these bits of information - that Jennifer considered Gus her grandchild, that she wanted more grandchildren, and that Justin knew about this and somehow neglected to inform me - and I had learned of it all in this very domestic scene and I didn’t know what I thought of all of it and only two sips into my drink was not the time to really figure that out. I needed many many more sips to figure out what I thought.

    Summary

    I had expected Justin to shout, to become indignant, defensive. To give me something to get some friction against, to continue to rage against, to fill my mind with expletives because that was preferable to any other possibility in this nightmare. Instead he answered quietly, “No, Brian.”

    Brian and Justin face another challenge together.

    Thank you to Becca_Hope and Tagsit for helpful plot bunnies for this part! I hope you're not disappointed.

    Summary

    The day Cynthia was due to arrive -- just in time for the meeting Brian had planned with Picture Perfect Optics, a company that sold high-end cameras, lenses, and other photography equipment -- Brian sat with Justin at the table over breakfast and worked very hard at convincing him to go to his studio and get what he needed so he could keep painting. Brian was feeling fine -- really good, actually, for the first time in a very long time -- and he knew he’d be fine for the hour or so that Justin would be gone, or even longer if Justin chose to stay at the studio for a while. But convincing Justin of that was a tall order.

    Brian Kinney, however, was very good at selling things.

    Summary

    Brian felt like he was floating. It was nothing like how he’d felt earlier in the morning. That had been this morning, right? How long ago had it been? Brian wasn’t sure. He opened his eyes just a little, and immediately felt disoriented, but he also felt too mellow to be startled by it, which was odd. Where was he? He didn’t recognize this place.

    Summary

    Stress. That was all it was. Just stress.

    It had been a rough last few days -- last couple of weeks, really. And Brian’s body was definitely revolting.

    Summary

    I took a deep breathe and let it out slowly. “Sunshine...I think...look this is nuts.” Like I said, I’m not winning any boyfriend of the year awards. “I don’t want to tell you what to do, but...will you call one of the therapists from the list?” And I’m not proud of myself here but desperate times and all that. “Please? For me?”

    Justin finds and meets with a new therapist in LA.

    Summary

    There it was. The tiniest hint of the old Justin -- teasing Brian, snarking at him. Brian was starting to notice those moments occurring occasionally, and he hoped it meant that the old Justin was starting to return. That maybe someday soon, Justin would feel up to trying something artistic again. Brian didn’t care if that meant painting or drawing or computer graphics or writing a fucking song -- as long as Justin was creating. He knew his husband was the happiest when he was creating something. And he knew Justin would feel much better if he would just give something -- anything -- a try. But Justin was too hung up on not being able to do things the same way he did before.

    Summary

    Brian wasn’t sure how he felt about revisiting the place where he’d wanted so badly to turn back time or try to act like his life hadn’t changed forever. Looking back now, he almost felt ashamed of the way he’d acted when he was in rehab. The way he’d treated people. People who were just trying to help. Not just the people whose job it was to do so, but his family too. He’d just been so angry. Angry at the world. Angry at his situation. So angry that he couldn’t see past it. The frustration he’d felt back then had completely obscured his view of everything else that there was -- like the fact that he was still alive, and that things weren’t any worse.

    And he knew that right now, Justin felt the same. Angry. Frustrated.

    Summary

    “I love you… I’m glad we...got married...after all.”

    Brian didn’t have words for how much it meant to him -- how much relief it gave him -- to hear Justin’s voice say those words.

    Summary

    “After work Daphne and I are having a John Hughes movie retrospective.”
    I rolled my eyes at the pretension of calling it a retrospective. It would be a movie marathon with both of them stoned out of their minds on my stash of pot and getting butter from the popcorn everyf*ckingwhere. I should have insisted they do it at Daphne’s place. What can I say, I’m a f*cking pushover.

    Brian travels for work and leaves Justin in Pittsburgh. People have opinions.
