FANFIC RECS

 

Queer As Folk fanfiction

Here's a list of my favorite QaF fanfiction... I really think you should read them all...they're that good...

All fics are US QAF and of theBrian/Justin pairing unless otherwise stated.

Also, many of the stories here contain very explict male/male sex, and at the very least have a lot of bad words in them. Please don't read if you are not of age or are easily offended by this type of material.

Elemental Drifts Justin wasn’t stupid. Anytime he let himself think about the situation rationally for more than 10 seconds he realized it was kind of ridiculous. Written as #2 of my Fic of my Dreams challenge-ish thing.
I Sing The Body Electric The music pulsed through Justin’s body as he danced, half-drunk, against Brian's grinding hips. Written as #4 of my Fic of my Dreams challenge-ish thing.
We Two Boys Together Clinging Brian came home late one night a few weeks after Justin had returned from California. Post S4.
George W. Bush Sucks Cock In Hell Justin came home one night after spending most of the day in the studio at school working on a painting.

Return of Dreams Ficlet inspired by Give Me Back My Dreams by The 6ths.
A Thousand Feet and Climbing Staring at the bedroom ceiling, smoking his fifth cigarette, Justin reviewed it all again. Post-308 Fic.

Figs and Leaves Jennifer knocked sharply on the loft door and waited, clutching her purse to her chest.
Incarnadine Porn. Then some more porn. Then porn again.

Building Memories Justin is looking down on the crowded streets beneath him, watching the people rush up and down the pavement, bags in their hands and grim expressions on their faces. Christmas/New Year’s 2006.

"Take Flight" Series The first story in this series was written for the first challenge on the BJImprov mailing list, and it somehow became a series. In keeping with the theme of the first story, all chapter titles are Rolling Stones songs.
Fanfic100 Collection 100 stories about Brian and Justin, based on the word prompts given by the community.

Shannon Marie
Roughousing Justin likes it a little rough, so Brian doesn’t pay any attention to his grunts and groans as he uses his full weight to push harder, driving Justin deeper into the cushions.
Show and Tell “Hey.” Justin kissed his ear. “You need to take a break. Eat something… preferably me.”
The Storm Within Brian looked up as the loft door opened and closed. Justin was wet from the storm and Brian could hear him wheezing a little over the soft patter of rain.

Shayla
The Language Of Our Silences In the summer following the season three finale, Brian and Justin speak in the silences.
Worth the Fight Future, drama, humor, romance. The problem with the present is that it's stuck so awkwardly between the past and the future. Justin has a wrestling match with happiness ten years after the end of season 3. Written for Blow it With Feeling with the assignment of gratitude.

Sonofabiscuit
Fantasies “Tell me your weirdest most fucked-up fantasy,” Michael’s looking at me with his eyes wide open, the weed has made them a pinky white colour. Future, about 3-4 years after 513.

Starla
Discovery Channel Michael likes to watch. but not in a kinky way.
This Is Not A Pick Up Line Future. Justin runs into Gus.
Green Curry Sequel to 'this is not a pick up line'. Justin tastes like green curry.
The Triumphant Artiste This is set in 3.03, when Michael and Brian get high. Only in this, Justin stays. There's not much more to it than that.
A Presence B/J, J/M friendship.
Chart Topper In retrospect, it was probably Justin's fault that Brian happened to be this drunk.
Subject to Change "In a year, probably not even that long, you won't even remember my name. Oh, what happened to that kid who wouldn't leave me alone? Who thought he was in love with me. If you fucking think of me at all."
The Tick Tick Boom The first anniversary of the Prom. Based pre-307, though I've no idea if that really would coincide with the anniversary of the Prom. Forgive the plotholes.

Sue Walsh
Lights! Camera! Action! Michael finds porn in Justin's room. Really, really familiar porn.
So Bad, It Hurts Another fill in the blanks story. I noticed Justin did not join in the teasing about Brian's sub-compact rental car, which led me to believe that he had already seen it, which led me to this.
Where There's Smoke Brian and Justin share a joint... and more.
Patch It Up Together Justin and Brian discuss Pride. Up to Episode 204.

Suzvoy
Really Not A Big Deal You don't know why you're surprised. Cynthia has never had a subtle bone in her body. Post 513.
Push and Pull This is set after episode 122, but it's definitely an AU because in my 122 things went a *little* differently...
A Star is (Almost) Born When Brian got home, Justin greeted him with a blowjob. Everything up to the end of season four happened, so possible spoilers. Season five didn't. Future fic.
Identity Crisis Michael started hating Justin again right around the same time JR started calling Justin 'Dada'. Post-513 AU.
Sleeping With The Enemy From the expression on his face, Brian was about as surprised to see her as she was that she'd made the decision to come. Post 513.
The Things I Cannot Change A season one AU, definitely set before 107.
Inescapable Brian/Justin, rated NC-17. Serious AU, based around the episode 510. Knowledge of 510 would be a distinct advantage, and if you haven't seen it this fic could be considered a big ol' spoiler for what happens in said ep.
Stuck in Neutral Justin couldn't paint. He hadn't been able to paint for nearly two weeks, and it frustrated the fuck out of him. Humour, schmoop, future fic set post-series so knowledge of the last ep is probably good.
Teamwork What if: ...Brian and Justin had gone on the Liberty Ride together? And stayed in a tent every single night they were away?

Superren
The love song of Brian A. Kinney Dare to be who you want to be. Even if who you want to be is a narcissistic asshole with a pretty blonde boyfriend.

Love Or Something Like It Things could be Different, Brian thinks.
Subconscious Justin doesn’t think Brian knows that he’s started sleep-fucking.

Caution Brian’s not so good at expressing himself.
Normal Justin has bronchitis.
What They Do Justin/Daphne BFF fic, with some B/J undertones.

Gone A whole lot of dominant!Brian, a little bondage... be warned, all who go here... Brian/Justin, implied Justin/Emmett.
Painting I can hear him around me, behind me, puttering around the loft. Not that he’d ever call it puttering. BSMD
Holding On... It’s dark in the backroom. It’s the first time we’re back here after… after whatever it is that happened to us. To me.
Third Time’s the Charm “Bend over, Justin.” The tone of his voice brooks no argument, but he can’t be serious.
Crime & Punishment The wailing sirens were grating on Brian’s nerves. PWP.
Miss You Gapfiller (of sorts) for the end of 304. A short, angsty break-up sex...ok, actually, it’s very angsty – so be warned. :|
And What if I Don’t? A gapfiller of sorts for 213, based on Brian’s answer when Justin asked what would happen if he didn’t do his schoolwork…
Photo Shoot Justin shifted his weight from one leg to the other, balancing the phone between his shoulder and his ear. Justin tries out Shibari (Japanese bondage)
Absence Makes the Heart… “Cocky, aren’t you?” I heard that little intake of breath. “You should be here.” AU, post finale.
Witness Set at the end of 311, just after Brian gets canned and before the election. No real plot to speak of here, just mind blowingly hot porn.
Modern ArtThe art gallery?” Brian’s smirk lifted his eyebrow high.
Mine Can Brian live without fucking Justin for two weeks?
Inevitable Nip/Tuck- QAF Crossover – it’s a Brian/Justin/Christian sandwich.

Just Take What You Need Written for snowinandblowin, the Queer as Folk Secret Santa. Set in the murky future with no season five spoilers and no authorial knowledge of them, either.
Same Time Next Thursday Co-written with K for the "Coming, Then Going 513 Dream Ending Challenge". Brian gets to the diner at 12:15 which is ten minutes later than he planned, but it's not like Justin's going anywhere, so Brian doesn't really feel bad.

Heatwave You declare that it's way too hot to set even a single toe outside and oddly enough, Brian agreeably decides to take you out shopping for drinks, rent a couple of DVDs and stay in the loft for the whole week and fuck.
