Sorry, it's been so long since I've updated. Life has been complicated. But a little leisure time has allowed me to finish the chapter I've been working on for months.

PS. I know I still owe a number of responses to last week's comments. I'll get there. I have to admit I've been working on this instead, because Brian came up with the first line and I knew what the last line was and I had to write the bit in the middle before it got away from me.



Homework




Last time, the boys had finally reached the housewarming party they started planning back in Chicago, many moons ago. This time, more about that party, and about Gus's own little housewarming do, and then about the visitors they have the next day.

Homework


Hi everyone

It's totally shocking to me that this is the first time I've posted a Homework chapter this year. I can hardly believe it.

Partly that was due to the unexpected demands of my muse to explore the strange, yet somehow oddly compelling world of the Love's Not Time's Fool trilogy.

Partly it's been due to the usual chaos that strikes in the first quarter of every year in my job (which also meant that I missed out on catching up with my friends in Cologne).

And partly it's because i just couldn't find a way to split this chapter anywhere so instead of being around 4000 - 5000 words as usual it's over 8000.

For some reason I blame Justin.

Anyway, here it is at last, Chapter 14 of Homework.

But if you just want a quick reminder:

The boys are looking after Gus while Lindsay gets her head together, they've moved into their new house and are planning their housewarming party, which is going to represent and celebrate, at least in their eyes, their commitment to each other, whatever unconventional form that might take.

My muses are being really kind at the moment, so at the risk of shocking you all into heart attacks ... ta da! Another Homework chapter.

Last time we met Megan. Time for us (and the boys) to become better acquainted with her.

As always, for Adults Only, so if you don't fit that category, go elsewhere.

And, sadly, don't own any of the boys. (Although I can lay claim to Megan.) No infringement intended.

Hi everyone

Have spent the day finishing of chapter #8 and also playing with photoshop.

Don't know if any of you are interested, but thought I'd show you what the pool area looked like before photoshop got involved.

Here is the original:

windows

And here's how it looked once I was done putting in the glass decking above the pool area.  Which meant

a) putting in something that looked like glass bricks or tiles and
b) flattening the ceiling, rather than having it slope.

Plus I needed to get rid of the brick walls and the hideous furniture.

Admitting that I could have spent more time and evened out some of the lines and stuff, I don't think it's too bad.

Hi everyone

Have just finished the new chapter of Homework.

I've made some changes since the last Beta so if there's anything egregious, please let me know.

Otherwise, all errors are mine. I have to confess, that I'm playing with time a little in this one and pretending that Mother's Day in 2005 fell a week later than it actually did. Sorry about that, but at least I'm honest about it. *g*

As always, my fics are for Adults Only so by clicking on any of the links provided, you are indicating that you fall into that category.

And, of course, I sadly don't own these characters. They belong to C/L and to Russell T, and I'm just borrowing them to play with for a while.

If you need to remind yourself of what's happened so far, all previous chapters of both Homecoming and Homework are indexed here: Homecoming/ Homework Index.

And if you're new to the fic, you should probably read Reverberations which is the prequel (my alternate S5, if you like). That's here: Reverberations Index.


Homework #8: Saturday at the Movies )

wren_kt7oz: (g_brian and gus_cuddles1)
At long last, another chapter of Homework. This is another fairly quiet chapter, but there is some stuff coming up that will shake things up a little, so I want the boys to have a chance to develop a fairly solid foundation before the storm hits.

Hope you enjoy.

Sorry about the delay - I'd started this in a rush right after posting the first chapter and then ran into a block that I just couldn't work my way past. Basically, because I'd stuffed something up in the very first paragraph, and my sub-conscious was screaming at me to fix it before I went on. *sigh*

I want to start by saying 'thank you' to everyone who commented on the final Homecoming chapter. Thanks to you, I made a donation of $200 to the AIDS Trust.

Now ... here is the first chapter of Homework.

It picks up the next morning - their first morning in their new home.

Homework #1: Crazy Is As Crazy Does )



.
wren_kt7oz: (g_bj_house 1)
First, I wanted to thank everyone who has commented on the final chapter of Homecoming. It's been amazing. The donation total is rising nicely.

Second ... I guess I kind of jumped the gun. I've been using Home-building as the working title for the next part of the story for a while now (seriously, months), and I've never really been happy with it. It seemed a little clunky, but I wanted to keep the 'home' thing in there, and I wanted it to be a single word, so I couldn't think of anything else.

of course, as soon as I announce that will be the name of the next part, I finally have the breakthrough moment and think of what the title really should be.

Anyway, overnight, thanks to my subconscious kicking in while I was asleep, Home-building has become Homework.

There are going to be reasons why that title is going to work better anyway, aside from the obvious one that building a home, a real home, is work.

So ... just thought I'd let you know.

Sorry that I didn't have this idea earlier. That's just the way my mind works sometimes.

*sigh*

I hope to get the first chapter up by next weekend at the latest.

And thanks again.

Homecoming_revised


I actually wrote the original first chapter of Homecoming as a one off, and I wrote it for Randall. I won't drag up all the negativity that was floating around the fandom in the aftermath of the screening of 513. Suffice to say that many of us felt that the glut of fics which hit the web immediately afterwards in which Brian upped stakes and moved to New York to be with Justin (and that's how nearly all the reunion fics were written in those first months) were just ... somehow not right.

After all the times Justin had left Brian, and all the times Brian took him back without question, it felt important to me to explore how it might work for Justin to come home to Brian and find a way to convince Brian that this time it was for good; that this time he was clearly and unquestionably choosing Brian.

So I wrote a short fic for Randall to show how I thought that might work.

From there, of course, it grew, and is still growing ... although along the way it morphed into the next phase - Homework.

NOTE: There is one further thing I should say ... writing Homecoming I came to realise that I could not work with the legacy of S5 in terms of how it depicted these two characters. I just couldn't. So while I was writing the early chapters of Homecoming, I began a "prequel" that effectively became a sort of alternative S5. Most of the events are the same, but I've given a few of them a little twist.

The full story is indexed here:

Reverberations

But if you'd like a quick summary of the differences between the two, you can find that here:

Homecoming Background: Differences between Reverberations and canon

And now here is the fic, and once more, thanks, Ran, because without you it might never have been written.

I have made a decision to end Homecoming at this point and move on to Homework.

However, to make things easier to keep straight, I'll continue to index that story here as well.

#2: Dinner for Three
#3: I'm a Man ... M-A-N
#4: Domesticity
#5: I've Got a Plan
#6: Beware: Brian at Work

#13: Realities and Realizations
#14: Celebrations
#15: Visits and Visitations
#16: The Fallout Begins







The next little lot are various one-off fics that fit loosely into the Homecoming universe.

The first is a fic written for the Moonshadow Tribe Birthday challenge to write something about the celebration of some kind of birth or birthday:
Birth and Rebirth

This one is one of my Halloween fics. It can be read as a stand alone, but very definitely fits into the Homecoming/ Homework story line.
The Old Man's House

This one was written for the Moonshadow Tribe's "Traditions" challenge. It's a Christmas fic that I originally envisaged taking place in the Homecoming universe - probably their first Christmas in the new house. Since then, things have evolved, and now I think of it as a sort of Homecoming/ Homework AU.
Out With the Old

The next is another Challenge fic and is set sometime in the future in the Homecoming 'verse - or maybe a Homecoming/ Homework AU *g* It's a Gus fic and can be read as a stand alone. The challenge theme was "full circle".
Leaving Home

Another challenge fic which follows directly on from Leaving Home. The theme for this was "complications".
Changing Roles

Yet another challenge fic. (I'm addicted to them.) This one had the theme "milestones":
Ten Year Itch

This is another of the Homecoming!future fics. It's a Halloween fic and falls before Leaving Home. Gus is sixteen and Dani is about to turn three. Trick Or Treat.

Another future!fic, this time a Christmas one. Gus is thirteen and Dani is just a few weeks old.
Christmas Surprise
